Madonna muscular not mannish claim fans.
Since I published that picture of Madonna/The Ma'am, I've received a number of complaints that it was more like Madonna/The Man.
"Are you sure you didn't PhotoShop that?" was the constant refrain. No, I didn't photoshop it. And, I'll post another picture to prove it. She may look more girly here but she's just as muscular. (Okay, almost as muscular).
And let me say this about that. I admire Madonna for helping to create a new popular image of female fitness. In the old days, dancers had muscular thighs but they didn't flaunt their biceps and shoulders the way the she does. This is something new and nice for it not only looks good but adds, I believe, to the stature of women. If you've got muscles, you're nobody's plaything.
