Gap gets into Madonna's groove

Some think attractive pop-stars compromise their integrity by shilling for corporations. But the Flea often finds the results appealling. Madonna is to star alongside super-hipster Missy Elliott in a forthcoming ad-campaign for the Gap:

Madonna's such a fan of the Gap that she even allegedly pilfered a poem from a 1993 Gap ad for the track "Sky Fits Heaven" on her 1998 album, Ray of Light. As for why Madonna would want to do commercials for the Gap, publicist Liz Rosenberg replied, "Why not Gap?"

The Flea had missed this bit of Gap-related Madonna minutiae and so cannot resist presenting it here:

Madonna's song:
"Sky fits heaven, so fly it/
That's what the prophet said to me/
Child fits mother, so hold your baby tight/
That's what my future could see...

Blagg's poem:
Sky fits heaven, so ride it/
Child fits mother, so hold your baby tight/
Lips fit mouth, so kiss them...
