95 Mind-Blowing Madonna Innovations

From Diamond Eyelashes to Reverse Gender Advertising

— February 6, 2012 — Pop Culture
In honor of the Queen of Pop's halftime show performance at Super Bowl XLVI, these Madonna innovations are meant to remind you of the pop star's legacy (not that a reminder is needed).

After performing a medley of her classic hits, as well as her new song, "Give Me All Your Luvin,'" featuring female rap superstars M.I.A. and Nicki Minaj, it's clearer than ever why Madonna has earned her title as the Queen of Pop.

The 53-year-old pop superstar has been in the business since 1983, when she released her self-titled debut album. Since then, she has released 10 more albums, and is set to release her latest, titled 'MDNA,' on March 26, 2012.

These Madonna innovations provide a great look at the icon's career and headline-making moves.
