  1. They're singing the lyrics... "we've lost god control..." I mean they're literally lip synching it? lol
  2. Well of course. I think it's relevant to bring up comparisons to past album cycles. We are all used to certain patterns from Madonna since the American Life era. Madame X has blown all of that up, in a good way.
  3. Absolutely - and with strong music videos, the music begins to sound better too. Confessions was weakened as an era by Madonna's unwillingness to make decent music videos. Hung Up is of course hall-of-fame brilliant. But Sorry, Get Together, and Jump? WASTED OPPORTUNITIES. It was one thing to do that with Hard Candy, but Confessions was begging for videos like the ones we see now. Madame X is the one.
  4. Yeah. The visuals are starting to put it ahead of Confessions for me. If you told me that a year or two ago I'd think you were on hard drugs. That's how impressed I am.
  5. Yeah I agree. Madonna has fallen into the pretentious trap on multiple occasions - the grand king of pretense being the stupid American Life video (personally will never understand why fans think that video is amazing... it's Madonna and Jonas at their most cluttered and overwrought) But God Control is not that video. It's the work of 2 people at an artistic zenith. I'm very proud.
  6. Yes. It's hard to put into words how big of a deal this video is for her career. I think it'll be a big deal in the months to come.
  7. I am floored, once again, by this woman. I was probably the most concerned person on this forum about this video, thinking she was going to go batshit and do this wrong. It is brilliantly conceived and the message is so smartly delivered. She really is a creative genius. I am very moved.
  8. Yeah this is at least shaping up to be the best visuals since Music. Puts into stark contrast the missed opportunities for every between Music and Madame X. Madonna IS the music video medium.
  9. Same. I’m absolutely not holding my breath though
  10. My theory is that the video starts with Madame X writing that intro manifesto, then getting ready for the club. They all get shot, then Madame X “wakes up,” it was all some twisted hideous fantasy or dream I’m nervous about this video but I know it’s probably gonna be great
  11. I’m really nervous about this video. Not going to deny it.
  12. I am too lazy to pull it up - but the perfect example of a junket journalist GOING THERE is when some European journalist (Bedtime Stories era) flat out asked Madonna about her alleged abortions. Just flat out asked. It caught Madonna off guard but she answered the question with a (surprisingly gentle) "I don't think that's necessary to discuss with you. Why do you want to know?" which is the perfect example of a non-denial denial. Now, I absolutely think it was horrible of that journalist to ask Madonna about something so incredibly private. But the reaction was not a sudden shuffle an
  13. The standard blew me away when I first saw it, still does. I think it may be my favorite album cover ever. The multitude of homages and references in what appears to be a very simple picture of her face. She is such a strong visual artist.
  14. It’s hard. but I do want Madonna to be true to herself. If she’s not inspired to make music, I don’t want her to do it. If she really wants to get better at filmmaking, I want her to try. It sounds corny but I just want the woman to enjoy herself. Madame X is a stunning moment in more ways than 1. It demonstrates her talents and instincts in a way that we haven’t heard in many years. If it’s one of her last musical statements, well I could not be more proud.
  15. I so agree. Madonna is a bitch and prideful as fuck but she will engage you when you ask tough questions. I’ve seen her do it. What she hates is weakness and passive aggressive stunts.
  16. I mean what the fuck? Madonna hates shit like that. I don’t blame her. Again, Matt Lauer is a creep, but watch his interviews with Madonna. He doesn’t hold back. ”do you think you can act?” ”the NYTimes said you’re irrelevant, do you agree?” ”can you be a pop star with a buttoned up image?” he was the only 1 willing to go there.
  17. Look, after watching Matt Lauer (RIP to that rapist’s career btw) question Madonna super bluntly in 2003 I don’t give this guy credit for his euphemistic questioning. Madonna engaged Matt even if she seemed defensive. This guy couldn’t get the words out cuz he was terrified of her. Stupid. She may have actually given us an answer if he just asked.
