Madonna amongst the dinosaurs

Madonna has been slowly coming to terms with her rock and roll hall of fame nomination:

"I heard about it and I kind of felt ambivalent, like, 'What is that, the place they put musical dinosaurs?' said Madonna.

"I didn't really know what to think of it. But then lots of people explained to me that it's an acknowledgement of singers and songwriters who have made a contribution in the world of music for 25 years, and so eventually I came around to the idea that it was flattering."

Aha. You needed someone to explain the concept of the hall of fame before, reluctant as Jim Hacker accepting nomination for party leader, allowing your name to go forward, huh?

Presumably it's a different Madonna who donated all those stage costumes to the Hall a few years back, then?
