3. Billie Piper


The public enmasse were mostly done with Madge over in the states so she started stealing video concepts from Brits. In between rip offs she issued statements about how "ugly and Soviet like" council housing is and who "antiquated and Victorian" the NHS is. Madonna is truly the lowest form of life.

5. Amanda Lear





MADONNA STOLE AMANDA LEAR'S LOOK 100% for her 1970s Euro Disco "Confessions Era" THEFT.

6. Ken Russell





From the world's greatest living film director, Madonna blatantly stole Ann-Margaret's white satin room and character Nora Walker from Ken's interpretation of The Who's rock Opera Tommy for her Confessions looks. The light up life size crosses from Ken Russell's interpretation of the rock opera "Tommy" (as well as the conversion scene in "Mahler") and tons of other imagery. Ken Russell, a late convert to Catholicism in his 20s, was the first to show major scenes of historical blasphemy, nuns as sexually provocative and many many other dramatic, never before scene on film sequences that Madonna lifted and dumbed down for her videos and stage shows. Much of The Confessions era "imagery" was nearly all stolen from either Tommy, Mahler or The Devils.

As a very vocal advocate of the restoration and reappraisal of Ken Russell's unparalleled 60 year career THIS MAKES ME VERY ANGRY.

Total RIP OFF of The Acid Queen from Tommy. Madonna managed to steal from Ken Russell and Tina The Queen at the same time!!

8. Ann-Margret




Rip of off Ann as Nora Walker doing "Smash The Mirror" from Tommy right down to the medallions on the maxi dress! The art direction for the newscast sequence is lifted as well. PLAGIARISM! Madonna managed to steal from Ken Russell yet again!!Even the white satin curtains were stolen! The late, great Shirley Russell (the Edith Head of British costumers) created the costumes for Tommy and deserves credit for ALL of this! Madonna assumes that her under 30 fans will never have seen Tommy and any of her older fans who have will not care.

9. Donna Summer



As with Amanda Lear and Ken Russell's films Tommy and Mahler, Madonna plundered and STOLE blatantly from Donna Summer for her "Confessions" era 1970s imagery.

10. Kylie Minogue






Yes, above is the ONLY photo out of the hundreds that PRE-dates a rip off target but it is still a rip off as Kyle traditionally has featured a showgirl number in each tour long before Madonna aped the look.

Nice try though.

15. John Lydon

Above: the living embodiment of Starbucks poser punk

Madonna called one of her Confessions tour segments:
"Never Mind The Bollocks"!!!! RIP OFF!

In an interview excerpt, Lydon reflects:
Yeah, well that’s typical Madonna isn’t it? Let’s face it she gets everything out of someone else’s catalogue.

Interviewer: Has she? You’re not a fan of Madonna’s?

John Lydon: Who would be? I’ve, you know, I love early 40’s movies, I love those style of clothes, I like what us punks used to wear and then when I see it regurgitated on her, I’m not so happy. Alright. She’s not exactly the voice of originality. This is a woman who, well, a couple of years back um, we approached her hubby, you know with view to um, maybe editing, directing a film of my life story based on my book, “ No Irish, No Blacks, No Dogs” The curt reply was they’d never heard of me.

Interviewer: They didn’t say that. Madonna? Was it Guy something, what’s his name?


JL: Yeah, yeah. Guy, useless guy.

Interviewer: He’s never heard of…


JL: Well hello, that same week in an English magazine was Madonna wearing a Sex Pistols T-shirt.

17. Alison Goldfrapp



From the UK Telegraph:
"Back in the autumn of 2005, Madonna invited Alison Goldfrapp, former convent-school girl, two-million-record-selling singer and extremely reluctant celebrity, to a party. A few months earlier, Madonna had been photographed taking Supernature, Alison's then current album, to a Pilates class; at the party, she clasped Alison's hand, and told her she just loved it. Not long afterwards, Alison was reading a magazine and came across a picture of her recent host wearing a sexy outfit with a jaunty military wedge cap. It was almost identical to one that Alison - who is known for her original stage costumes - had been filmed and photographed in while promoting Supernature.

'I thought, "No - it's Madonna! Why would she…"' Alison says, bemused, when asked about her influence on Madonna and, indeed, several other global superstars. 'I don't quite believe it. It's flattering, you know, but… too weird.' Alison Goldfrapp's speech tends to trail off embarrassedly when you ask her questions like this, but they are justified - at one point Madonna's shift in music and style prompted music industry people to refer to her as 'Oldfrapp'."

18. Courtney Love




Madonna made a sad attempt at plagiarising Courtney Love's kinder-whore above. Madonna tried to actually go grunge (a Vanity Fair article in the early 90s described her hunting for bands to sign for Maverick while wearing "ripped tights, combat boots and a plaid flannel shirt")but then wisely waited until 2000ish when no one cared. Madonna has ZERO rock or punk in her so it extremely pathetic to witness.

"Madonna's interest in me was kind of like Dracula's interest in his latest victim... I don't want her to know anything about me because she'll steal what she can. What I have is mine and she can't fucking have it. She's not going to be able to write lyrics like me, and even if she does get up onstage with a guitar, it's not going to last. I don't care how vain and arrogant that sounds, but just watch: in her next video, madonna's going to have roots. She's going to have smeared eyeliner. And that's me."

- COURTNEY LOVE who can both act and play the guitar VERY well. Madonna can't act and her guitar is 90% prop.

19. Annie Lennox

Stole Annie's late 90's Little Bird concept for her stage show. All of Annie's video personas show up and she confronts them in song. madonna did the exact same thing, carefully waiting about a decade or so.

Another costumed film to steal ideas from. Why does Madonna always try to copy film fashions aimed at teenage girls? These were retouched with a sandblaster.

24. Lady GaGa


Gaga can't steal from the biggest thief of all. Madonna's fans refuse to admit that Madonna's ENTIRE career is composed of stolen moments THAT OTHERS CREATED FIRST. Madonna fans should appreciate how much respect Lady gaga shows her because she certainly does not deserve an iota of it.

Master complete list of Madonna Rip offs:
http://www.listal.com/list/lady-gaga-did-not-steal

Madonna's inexcusable plagiarism for which she has NEVER been called out on through the decades:

1980's: http://www.listal.com/list/madonnas-stolen-work
1990's: http://www.listal.com/list/madonna-antireinventionist-copypaste


And the rip offs never end even in the new Millennium but now Madonna is stealing from more obscure places hiding them in areas like the tour programmes or the background films for her endless tours. The Ken Russell rip offs are patently offensive to me as along time fan of Ken. Madonna has stolen the dress Ann-Margaret is wearing down to the medallions!

If Ken was also getting 36 million to make a film as she is for her latest turkey, this might be more pitiful than offensive. Shirley Russell created all you see here as well. Ken once said seeing Shirley's creations and vintage finds turn up in films by other directors was like "seeing old friends. Madonna in clothing ripped off from Tommy is like knowing your stolen antique wedding dress was sold on Gumtree in exchange for two expired IKEA gift vouchers and a BJ.
