In 1995, Matthew Rettenmund's Encyclopedia Madonnica made its debut thanks to publishing house St. Martin’s Press. For those unaware, Encyclopedia Madonnica is a humorous, irreverently reverent, exhaustive, unofficial A-to-Z on the life and career of Madonna. Well, up until that point in time. Twenty years has passed, so Matthew Rettenmund has decided to update the book to include the happenings, both good and bad, of the last two decades.

Matthew was the founder of Popstar! Magazine back in 1998 and was Editor in Chief of the publication until 2012. Popstar! was the very first teen entertainment title to be published in full color on glossy paper. It is credited as being the blueprint for the teen celebrity magazine market as we currently know it. All the other magazines started imitating Popstar's look and feel. And as they say, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Matthew was the first to cover future teen idols Zac Efron, Hilary Duff, Jessica Simpson, the Jonas Brothers and more.

But, we are just getting started. Rettenmund is also an acclaimed novelist and pop-culture historian. His books include the novel Blind Items: A (Love) Story (1998) and pop-culture non-fiction books Totally Awesome '80s (1996) and Hilary Duff: All Access (2005). And let's not forget the hilarious, politically incorrect spoof Queer Baby Names: A Completely Irreverent Guide to Naming Your Lesbian/Gay Tot, which he co-wrote with Jaye Zimet.
