Thank you very much.
Hi englishlover, and welcome to the forums.
I've merged your two threads. In the future, please post a question only once.
As a grammar, note, although the Madonna one is perfectly understandable, a tough grader will mark you down for that one. It's not "some people" who are popular, but that's what the structure of the sentence implies. Try starting "Despite Madonna's popularity,... " and then try to do the rest.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
