In the realm of iconic female characters, Miss Piggy reigns supreme. Introduced in 1974, at forty-one she has lasted far past the f**kable age usually given to female celebrities, and shows no signs of stopping.

Madonna is nothing if not contradictory. She's like a virgin, but she's also a material girl; she's ancient, but she's hot like fire.

Raised in an Orphanage in Cape Verde, she started singing in bars when she was just 16 years old for free booze, and eventually parlayed her talents into a career as a Grammy-winning, world-traveling musician.
