BOY CULTURE: Madonna's gutsy determination to get a record deal knew no bounds in the early '80s, taking her from the streets to a cardiac ward — where she was signed on the spot by Seymour Stein (b. 1942). P.S. Madonna's still kicking today, and may be looking into a 2019 arena tour.

THE FILM EXPERIENCE: Judy Garland would've turned 96 Sunday. This week, a trailer was released for the latest A Star Is Born remake, this one starring Lady Gaga (b. 1986) and director Bradley Cooper (b. 1975). Will it be so much better than it sounds on paper?
