Hall of Lame
Apparently employing a definition of "rock and roll" that's as loose as the inductee herself, last night the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame granted Madonna a place among its ostensibly hallowed ranks.
She was introduced (read: lionized) by none other than Justin Timberlake -- another performer who's got rock cred to spare, as long as you believe that rock and roll is something that can easily be bought in the vintage-T section of Fred Segal.
Sorry kids, not even a surreal shout-out from Iggy & the Stooges can make Madonna anything more than the longest-lasting pop culture PR stunt in history.

Well, you know -- wherever.
