By this time, Madonna landed a supporting cast role in ''Film/DesperatelySeekingSusan'' (1985), playing the title character Susan. The film was a commercial and critical hit, and was the first of many movie roles for Madonna. Unfortunately, her follow-up films ''Shanghai Surprise'' (1986, with then-husband Creator/SeanPenn) and ''Who's That Girl'' (1987) didn't fare as well.

* VideoFullOfFilmClips: "Into the Groove" for ''Film/DesperatelySeekingSusan''; “Who’s That Girl?” from ''[[DepartmentofRedundancyDepartment Who’s That Girl?]]''; “This Used to My Playground” from ''Film/ALeagueOfTheirOwn''; “I’ll Remember” from ''WithHonors''. Though, in each case except "Into the Groove," [[DownplayedTrope movie clips only played over the chorus or the musical solo]].

** In the video for "Open Your Heart," one of her stripper's many admirers is a military woman. In 1986, being homosexual in the military was grounds for a dishonorable discharge.



* IWasYoungAndNeededTheMoney: One reason given for her nude photos taken pre-fame in 1978.

* ParodyAssistance: Remarked in a casual conversation, “When is [[WeirdAlYankovic Weird Al]] gonna make 'Like a Surgeon'?” Word got back to Weird Al, and [[AsYouKnow the rest is history]]. Weird Al has said this is the only time he has made a parody based off the orginator’s suggestion.

* RaisedCatholic: Okay, she may dance provocatively in front of religious symbols but they're ''Catholic'' religious symbols. The symbolism in ''Like A Prayer'' is Catholic, and overall it probably takes a Catholic to piss the Church off so many times. She said in an interview that she's a lapsed Catholic: "there are certain things in Catholicism [...] that I can't get rid of."

She also named her daughter (Lourdes) after a Catholic pilgrimage site.

** "True Blue" is also a major source of discontinuity, since the song was written about love for ex-husband Sean Penn and Madonna has pretty much disowned the song, going so far as refusing to ever perform it in concert. However, she eventually performed it again at the Rebel Heart Tour (one with Penn in the audience).

* DatedHistory: When her song "Vogue" was released on March 20, 1990, more than half of the people on her list were still alive (Greta Garbo, Creator/MarleneDietrich, Joe [=DiMaggio=], Creator/MarlonBrando, Creator/GeneKelly, Creator/GingerRogers, Creator/LaurenBacall, Creator/KatharineHepburn, and Lana Turner). Garbo became the first to die about a month after "Vogue" was released; and by the time the last person on the list died on August 12, 2014 (Bacall), you'll never listen to the song in the same way again, as the anthem for the lost glamour of Old Hollywood is now turned into a TearJerker.
