"Blondie" singer Debbie Harry talks about Madonna in a recent interview with Garth Pearce:
"At one of my lowest points, Madonna started her career, and everyone said she stepped into my shoes.
I was kind of shocked and not very happy in the long run.
But she has been complimentary over the years.
I have seen her play. I think she is a talented, very organised person who takes no prisoners.
She puts on a very showbizzy show.
But one thing that Madonna has been very smart about is, that she understood the business and made very good business decisions."
