  1. Madonna's lawsuit pretty much puts paid to the idea that the 'mediocre' letter was 'fake', as some here were claiming. The basis of the suit essentially appears to be that her private possessions are being sold on without her consent, rather than items being fraudulently passed off as her former belongings.
  2. Where are you getting this from, because it's not in this letter?
  3. The authenticity of the letter wasn't what I was addressing in the post you quoted.
  4. Oh, and you're much funnier when you're mauling Ms. Minogue than when you're trying to police lifelong fans opinions of Madonna.
  5. It's not 'nonsense' at all. Either you missed the articles or you have a selective memory.
  6. I distinctly remember reading articles where the writer would unfavourably compare Madonna to Sharon Stone. Body of Evidence was disparagingly dubbed 'Basic Instinct 2' even before its release. With the Bodyguard, Whitney's star was widely perceived to be in the ascendant, whereas Madonna was weathering a huge backlash, so it does actually make a lot of sense.
  7. That's not what the letter is saying, though. Madonna (if it is indeed her) writes that she's frustrated with the media saying that Houston and Stone have the music and film careers that she doesn't have, because she doesn't see herself as being anything like them.
  8. Chained to the Rhythm sounded more like a 3rd or 4th single. Definitely not the right choice for a lead when she'd been away for a while. She's had a good run, but she's peaked now. The industry's different now so pop princesses don't just have one or two hit albums and then vanish without a trace like they did in the 80s ie Taylor, Paula,Tiffany, Debbie,Martika. etc Now, their success is drawn out over a number albums and tours, picking up as many endorsement deals on the way to boost their income. But, nonetheless, they still have a sell-by date. Taylor Swift has probably got one more hit album to go, before she suffers the fate.
  9. I don't think most of this matters to the vast majority of people. The real issue is that her latest music's not very radio-friendly and thus is not connecting with the public.
  10. A useless piece of noise? No way. It's a brilliantly crafted,infectious pop song, with some critics hailing it as the strongest track on the album. Exquisite ABBA-style melodies and a classic Madonna rhyming couplet: 'Don't explain yourself 'cos talk is cheap. There's more important things than hearing you speak'. Genius.
  11. I read she was going to name-check the Spice Girls!
  12. This is fascinating. I'd never seen it before. I wish this sort of stuff would have wider exposure as it really shows what an authentic person Madonna is and always has been.
  13. Can't see what the problem would be.
