Mensagem: 

What does 'face value' means in the following context:

 

'But to take Madonna AT FACE VALUE is to misunderstand one of the most complex and intelligent female stars os the past two decades.'

 

I've found....

''the value or price which is shown on, for example, a stamp, a coin or a bank note''...

 

But in Madonna's case... it means what?...

 

Thank you.
