  • Madonna: still the Queen of Pop? Mar 26, 2012 - 2:00 pm
  • She's the most successful female recording artist ever – and now, 30 years after her first single, Madonna has released her twelfth album, 'MDNA'. It's already caused a stir, with the video for the opening track 'Girl Gone Wild' banned on YouTube for being 'too raunchy'.

    But is she still good? What's more important: Madonna the brand or the artist? And, at 53, should she really be wearing those hot pants?

    Neville Hawcock puts these questions to FT writers Lucy Kellaway, Ludovic Hunter-Tilney and Richard Clayton.

    With clips from 'Girl Gone Wild', 'I'm a Sinner' and 'I'm Addicted'.

    Produced by Griselda Murray Brown
