All of last year's Madonna Wanna
bees are not, I know, gonna wanna be
pregnant this year. But if you think that
rock stars have no influence on teen
age behavior, I can tell you where to
find a whole lot of used lace gloves. If
this is a song about "a girl making a
decision in her life," part of her
decision-making comes from the end
less romantic messages like this one.
My own personal fantasy is to see
just one movie in which the passionate
male lead looks deeply into the eyes of
the exquisite female lead as they sit
before the fire in the lonely cabin, kiss
ing soulfully, and asks whether they
should use his contraceptive or hers.
J ust once I would like to hear a rock'n'
roll song in which the lead singer pants

you want an antonym for romance in
our multi-media show, try "realistic" or
"responsible." Responsible romance is
an oxymoron. True lovers are not
planners; they are carried away. Just
ask pregnant teen-agers, almost a mil
lion a year.
Adolescents are fed the pop image of
a love that is zipless and parenthood
that comes without bills or diapers. But
even Madonna, 27, and a lady in control
of her life, knows better. Asked what
she imagines as postscript to the happy
ending of her first-trimester video, she
says, "Of course, who knows how it will
end?" The realists among us do have a
pretty good, or should I say, pretty
bleak, statistical idea In poverty.
Does that sound like a sermon? The
song says, "Papa Don't Preach." Let's
make a deal instead. Papa and Mama
will call off the preaching, if pop stars
call off the propaganda.
