  1. Exactly. It’s part of her legacy and brand. social media has made Madonna fans so weak.
  2. They didn’t defend her in 1990, 1991, 1992, 2003 either. I really don’t think Madonna cares.
  3. Emma is an incredibly smart girl, but she's just flat wrong on the facts. Madonna gave everyone a very clear warning at the beginning of the video, spelled out in text. And the implication that Madonna is profiting off of the video is really incredibly irresponsible. I'm not into fanbases swarming other ppl's social media accounts with their craziness, but I do think Madonna fans should be on her page pointing out the holes in her statements. Looks like she didn't even watch the video. If she's walking it back then good. People need to chill out. The first instinct is to go for th
  4. Someone had to go here, and I am glad it was you and not me But yep. I wondered the same thing myself. Someone probably told her flat out that she was going to blow another massive opportunity if she did not do something with the setlist. She has to make part of the setlist at least an indirect homage to gay culture and her own immersion in it. This is pride. This is a celebration with a lot of heavy undertones, sure. But it is a celebration. Bitch, act like it! So if she was aware of my tough comments about the setlist, GOOD!! I'm only trying to help
  5. After seeing the potential/unconfirmed setlist, hearing God Control and I Rise, and after seeing the unabashed brilliance of the God Control video, I'm feeling more confident about the pride perf. Could actually be iconic tbqh? We will see. [Xtina]Noms announced and I'm WINNING Usually at the Billboards just PERFING Feelin' all G-A-Y I don't care it's NYC PRIIIIIIIIIIIIIIDE!!![/Xtina] @Monsieur X And yes that is a reference to G-A-Y London nightclub perf by MARGE in 2005.
  6. I can't wait until Trump fucking dies. I won't reach full happiness in this life until I know Donald Trump is 6 feet under.
  7. No you’re right, I mostly went off on a tangent. I know what you meant. But I was just kind of thinking out loud as to why it may be this way.
  8. I do agree it was a big mistake to not release the song before the album came out. But I'm not sure it would have mattered. She just put out a really stunning video that has just as much replay value as Hung Up and it's still just kinda plodding along. I really do think Madonna's name still means something to virtually anyone you talk to (so her relevance is sort of permanent in that sense), but when it comes to current output - she's facing the same challenge Prince and Bowie did. She can make the most innovative, interesting pop music and ppl will still feel like "oh, she's still making
  9. I can see how Girl Gone Wild is a cringe mess for fans too. But at least it came to life when performed live. Much of MDNA is like that to me - live treatment of the songs gave the songs a sense of identity that they didn't have on the album. American Life is kind of the inverse - a song that wanted to be innovative and unique but was bogged down by being tuneless and schizophrenic and capped off by a really stupid rap. It's just awkward, it's the equivalent of wearing cargo shorts with a blazer and Birkenstocks, and then putting on a beret and walking outside. The song is just a mess lo
  10. I mean, it's the ONLY way it'll have a chance. The original incarnation sounds so goofy live.
  11. Exactly. The album is what has aged well. The song is basically in the same place it was when it came out in 2003. Some die hards think it is great, everyone else just think its an awkward cringe mess.
  12. @jamesshot @Amelia The views aren't higher because Madonna is not relevant like that anymore. I know, sounds reductive to just flatly claim that, but it's just the truth. I don't mean this to be derisive or mean regarding your desire to see Madonna go viral like that (who knows, the video may have legs). But I think some of us just need to accept that this is her career now. Someone else in another thread summed up Madonna's challenge perfectly. She is too old in age for the young kids to get into, but she is also making music that is too "youthful" and experimental for older generations to ge
  13. Shit, not me. I’ve hated it from day 1. And maybe I just don’t post here enough, but I can’t remember a time when that song had a Renaissance. It’s always been (AT THE VERY LEAST) a very divisive song for fans.
  14. Ugh. American Life will never not suck. I’m pissed she’s clogging up a perfectly good spot on the setlist with that stupidity, but if God Control and Vogue are on there, maybe the presence of those 2 brilliant songs will make that piece of crap more digestible
  15. It can mean legendary, yes. They're not mutually exclusive. But to have cult status means that a large chunk of the population is aware of you, but only a portion of that population understands your work. Prince became a cult figure in the latter half of his career. David Bowie was pretty much a cult figure throughout his entire career. They're both legends. Cult movies, like The Shining or Suspiria are deemed so because of their uniqueness and innovative style, though movies like that have plenty of detractors. All of this could easily describe Madonna in 2019. Michael Jackson, Mariah C
  16. I have a feeling her team is probably filming it professionally. It would be ludicrous not to.
  17. The lyrics of this song are among the strongest in her career... the flow of the song really kind of orbits around the power of the words. Every part of the song is tailored and constructed to be super catchy and quotable. I'm astonished at the level of songwriting talent in Madonna sometimes. I think it's been so long since I've heard these kind of raw instincts from her because she's been mired in other producers CRAP for so many years. This album is such a colossal achievement - I am so glad the videos are getting similar treatment. A really incredible time in Madonna's career for me, tbh.
  18. Let me just say one more time that Madonna is the most important visual artist in American history. Thanks so much
  19. The sooner we all accept that Madonna's become a pretty subversive figure in pop culture, almost cult-like in status, the sooner we can all learn to enjoy her art the way she intends. It's not 2005 anymore. Madonna post-50 has done a lot of experimenting with her legacy - she's done the money-hungry thing with the gyms and perfumes (GROSS), she's done safe (Hard Candy and Rebel Heart eras), she's done grandiose (the entire MDNA era), now the bitch wants to be an artist. That means she's had to shed a lot of goodwill in favor of being the woman she wants to be. Butt implants, experimental
