Debbie Harry Accuses Madonna of Identity Theft


As the theater version of Desperately Seeking Susan prepares to open in London’s West End (featuring the music of Blondie), Debbie Harry says Madonna stole her look back in the 80’s:

“I came right up against the Madonna thing. Maybe it’s my paranoia but she had a lot of my looks. If you look closely, sometimes there’s pictures of her and me that completely overlap. She [Madonna] was getting such a huge push from Warners, I was definitely on the B-list. It was a hard period for me. I don’t think anybody knew how to market me or what to do with me. I was like a fish out of water.”
