    pop star madonna has said she "wants to be like gandhi, martin luther king, and john lennon".



    the 48-year-old made the statement on us radio station sirius - but added she wanted to "stay alive".

    "for me, the best thing in the world is to see something or hear something and go: 'damn, i wish i did that. that's inspiring,'" she added.

    Well that explains the putting-herself-on-the-cross crap.

    The one thing i will admire about her (i do like the music though) is thatshe's at least done whatever she's wanted and not let anyone stop her.

    "I'd like to think I am taking people on a journey... I am not just entertaining people, but giving them something to think about when they leave."

    She's taking us on a journey alright. Cone breasts, half naked videos, banned video by MTV, dropped by Coke. I like her music, but I'm not sure I want her babysitting my kids. Now MLK Jr could baby sit my kids (if I had some). I'm not sure I can put her on the same level as Ghandi and MLK.

    I have to give some credit to her. She knows how to reinvent herself and not give a d*** what people think.

    She's not even on the same PLANET.

    A talented singer? Maybe. A smart businesswoman? Probably. A controversial figure? Definitely. But she's no great humanitarian, nor a role model for the next generation.

    'Nuff said.

    Gee I want to be like them too. What does that mean? NOTHING at ALL. It is only by ACTIONS that would make my words matter, and the same goes for Madonna.

    :yeahthat: MLK was hero. Rosa Parks was a hero. IMO, Madonna will never be like those two people. I've never seen MLK in a video where he kissed a black Jesus. To me, a humanitarian is someone who does not publicize the fact that they just gave $10 million dollars to a third world country. It's easy to say you want to be like these people but words won't get you anywhere.

    MLK, Ghandi and Rosa Parks are real role models.
