  1. She already told Trump to go suck a dick (among other things). She doesn’t need to address him specifically anymore, we all know her feelings. She say herself that this song wasn’t about any one “old man”...it’s about the patriarchy in general. I’m sure you-know-who was at the forefront of her mind when writing that line though.
  2. One of my favorites on the album...I expected the video to be mostly what we had seen before, but it looks exciting!
  3. You know she has to say something in the video for the “get that old man...” part!
  4. Madonna has done many very non-pop songs, mostly with Mirwais, but Madame X definitely has some of her most unconventionally structured songs. That is what separates her from typical pop singers/artists, she has (especially since Justify My Love) usually included some innovative “weird” music on all her albums. Her non-singles are mostly her best music. It depends on one’s taste of course. Batuka is brilliant and one of my favorites on the album. I am very pleasantly surprised we’re getting a video.
  5. Nobody's Perfect was the first song to utilize autotune throughout most of the song (I think more than 90% of the song)...obviously "Cher's" (quotes are because Cher doesn't write/produce music) Believe used it before, but that was a minimal amount. The Music album was the first to use autotune consistently and more generously. I never tire of hearing Disco Science...one of my favorite songs ever.
  6. This is one of my favorites on the album too. Really incredible. It’s interesting to see how wide-ranging the tastes of her fanbase are. There are just as many who only like straightforward pop songs as those who like her more experimental side. I can’t imagine not hearing the brilliance of this song.
  7. I did love that she mentioned Goa and the use of the instruments in OE...she really immersed herself and incorporated all Lusophone and related musical styles.
  8. I’m very surprised...Crazy is one of my least favorites (I like the singing, but that’s about it) as is Extreme Occident. Not crazy about Looking for Mercy either, but Killers and Batuka are top 5 for me.
  9. American Life was great live! The choreography while playing guitar was the best!
  10. She gave a great performance and she just made one of the best albums of her career. The trolls are obvious and unsophisticated, so tired and boring. Enjoy the music, it will outlive all the noise.
  11. To me something like Girl Gone Wild is a cringe mess...as are lifeless repetitive dance remixes. At least the production on American Life is innovative.
  12. The production on American Life is the best part of the song, the only part I don’t care for is the rap, specifically the end with the Christian/Jew thing...otherwise it’s a good song, especially with good speakers. It could work updated live.
  13. Wow, I completely agree with your entire assessment, even concerning past albums. Very well said! I am so proud and surprised at the brilliance of Madame X!
  14. This is why we love her, Madame X is fucking brilliant!
  15. Exactly, it works just fine i other countries, how would we know "even that doesn't work" when we have never implemented it? The only thing different about the U.S. is out of control Capitalism combined with 24-hour propaganda (brainwashing) networks--they are the only reason people parrot ridiculous things like gun control doesn't work (as well as repeating other terms of the moment....like SJW). Everybody else knows the damn truth.
  16. It’s definitely one of her “toothier” albums...and it does get better and better with each listen (especially with good headphones). So many layers.
  17. Yes, let’s focus on what is obviously going to be one of her most epic videos (to go with one of her most epic songs). We are getting everything this era...enjoy it.
  18. I didn’t go in the Eurovision thread, because I didn’t want to hear about it anymore...I was just responding to people in this thread.
  19. I'm sure that applies to the European interviews, they were most likely told to not ask her, but no one cares or even knows what Eurovision is in the USA, it would be pointless to ask. Europeans on here are having a difficult time understanding how irrelevant that show is. I follow music closely, and I had barely heard of it before (only due to my ties to Portugal), and I certainly never watched even a second of it before this year. The interview in this thread is an American outlet, they simple would not ask about Eurovision under any circumstance. So it is that.
  20. I understand Eurovision is huge in Europe, but I have barely ever heard mention of it in the US...it is like the Super Bowl in Europe. They didn’t ask, because it doesn’t even register here, it is nothing in the US. No one here cares in the slightest.
  21. I’m not sure if they sell them online, I hadn’t seen them before. They had a few pairs in the pop-up shop.
  22. I just went, very cool to see a Madonna store! Got some socks and the cassette.
  23. The bulk of those interviews were nearly 30 years ago, she was promoting acceptance in the 80s even...it hasn’t been that fast moving unfortunately . In the past 10 years it has moved very quickly. I think it’s difficult for young people to imagine how hostile things were. No famous people were out really, gay people weren’t really even defending gay people openly. I think many young people can imagine it.
  24. Truth or Dare was huge. Showing that to the world was one of the bravest things any famous person has ever done to this day...the reactions in the theater were so intense in New Jersey (I can’t even imagine what it was like other places)...especially the men heavily kissing. We still don’t see that much to this day. They usually cut away very quickly or don’t show it at all. The disrespect comes from ignorance, and Madonna is an easy target for hate...she has been from the beginning, but especially when she was “promoting deviant lifestyles.” Especially, as others have mentioned, during the AIDs crisis.
