One thought on “Today in Madonna History: May 9, 1998

  1. Madonna doesn’t know if she’s X-Statically happy or mournfully sad-in hard rocker Ray of Light, she embodies the best of both worlds! She’s happy because of the faith, hope and love inside of her rebel heart but she’s also sad because Madonna is haunted by the specter of her mother’s death! Still, Madonna’s story is one of triumph! Rebel Ciccone is the last of her kind! I will always love Madonna, thanks to Ray of Light!
