Apparently, turning into a part of speech is a sign that you have arrived.

“She’s become an adjective. Friends will go shopping with each other and say, `It’s so Madonna.’ That’s what you want in fashion.”

Stylist and tv personality Robert Verdi on Madonna, who turns 50 this weekend

But really, adjective, schmajective. I say becoming a verb is the height of fame (just ask Mr. Verb). When they start saying, “I madonnaed that outfit!” then we can talk.



  1. Well, there’s the “Madonna grab” skateboarding move, you could verb that pretty easy. “He 360 Madonnaed over the coping! Sick!”

    But then, skateboarding is a separate language anyway.
