Take Back the ’80s Burlesque: Happy Birthday Madonna! (slide show)

The gals of Take Back the ’80s Burlesque honor their favorite decade's biggest star, Madonna.

Francine “The Lucid Dream” and Minnie d’Moocha’s Take Back the ’80s Burlesque celebrated its first birthday on Friday, August 16; the none-more-’80s Madonna marked her 55th twirl around the sun on the very same day. Therefore, it makes perfect sense that the gals used the anniversary party as a salute to the occasionally-blonde bombshell, with Matt Knife, Sizzle Dizzle, Stormy Leather, Wae Messed and go-go stud Brooklyn Irons all adding their flair to the affair. In the words of the modest Ms. Ciccone herself, “I want to be like Gandhi, and Martin Luther King, and John Lennon…but I want to stay alive." And she has!
