    I hate how they are trying to turn this into "The killers didn't know him so they didn't know he was gay, so they didn't really mean it when they were shouting "Faggot" while beating him to death".

    Newsflash: every day members of the LGBT community have to deal with people that don't know them saying stuff about them, sometimes directly to them, sometimes to others or even to themselves but with a tone and intention to be heard.

    The guy was doing a videocall with one of his lesbian friends and her girlfriend, I'm sure he was acting like many gay guys would and this was noticed by the animals that killed him.

    The saddest part is seeing the "but they didn't know him, so they couldn't have known he was gay" narrative invading not only social media but the press. Where are those people living?

    So disgusting. They didn't know he was gay but called hi fag anyway = hate crime, no matter how it's parsed.

     

    You think we've come so far in this world, and then suddenly you're reminded that we haven't. Not far enough and not by a long-shot. 

     

    Love to Samuel's family and friends. 

  2. Every second of God Control is perfection. That is all. 

    On edit: Actually, no. I don't understand song-craft so I don't know if it happens on the bridge or what, but when the strings start spiraling with the repetition of Wake Up, Wake Up, i am dragged straight into a 1978 disco and shot straight out into the endless infinity of the universe. 

    Okay, now that's all. 🙂

  3. Awesome article on Tracy and M. re: her I Rise nomination. 

    Of course, anyone who undercuts Madonna is ignorant of history. The Advocate ranked the "Vogue" singer as the greatest gay icon in a 2012 cover story, which chronicled her many contributions: her liberation of sexuality in pop music, her activism during the AIDS crisis when most celebrities were silent, the impact of gay visibility in her Truth or Dare tour documentary, and her ongoing fight against stigma. She won a GLAAD award for her lifelong allyship last year.

    The Best Albums of the 2010s: Madonna’s ‘Madame X’

    Madonna’s radically adventurous and globally-inspired Madame X polarized fans and critics for good reason. It’s her least accessible album, but it’s also up there with the best she’s ever made. Including language barriers (“Medellín”, “Faz Gostoso”), disparate musical genres (“Crave” vs. “Batuka”), and lyrics that ignite controversy (“God Control”, “Killers Who Are Partying”), Madame X was not for the casual Madonna fan that rolled their eyes at the Hebrew vibes of “Isaac” on 2005’s Confessions on a Dance Floor. Years from now, we’ll look back on Madame X as the Madonna album that’s most closely aligned with the real Madonna Louise Veronica Ciccone, and one of her most artistically audacious and authentic offerings.

    Awesome! I was looking for 2019 Best Albums list but decade? Yes, for sure.

    It seriously is!!!! Its amazing how good it makes me feel all the time. I is easily my 2nd fav album of hers. I don’t know if it can beat Erotica for number one but it’s possible!

    Cool, and totally transports me, too. I get that "Not since Confessions..." is tiring to hear for some fans, but I haven't been transported by an M. album the same way. Not that there hasn't been a shit-ton to love since, but... 

    And Madame X is in my top three or four, but it's hard to even decide but the other 2 or three are!!! So many great choices!! We're lucky fans. 🙂🙂

    This!

    I can't believe so many fans seem no more able to appreciate how beautiful and original contrasts and juxtapositions can be instead of flatter and more predictable settlements.

    Totally. I mean, if you dislike 'effects' on their face and/or in any artist's songs, that's one thing, but M. uses them with purpose and to my mind and memory, she's never tried to get one over on using them.

    YESSSS! This album is amazing! It deserves every praise. I listen to it everyday!

    I've had a busy week and not a lot of time to listen to anything—plus allergy headaches have prevented me from putting headphones in, too, but... 

     

    I hit the train to Medellin this morning and it alone put me in a fantastic mood. I got all the way to Come Alive before I was at my stop and was in my own world by then. This album is a masterpiece, plain & simple. 

  8. Fucking awesome. I hope we get many more articles like this to enjoy as we close in on end-of-year best-of lists, and as the tour continues. 

     

    My only beef is "Never before have Madonna's vocals been quite as processed, and at times it jars against some of the natural instrumentation."

     

    She is well aware of what she's doing with her "processed voice" and its juxtaposition against "natural instrumentation." She and Mirwais aren't altering her voice to cloak or masque it. They're creating sonic landscapes that tell a story or add to the songwriting/storytelling. 

     

    But awesome article again!

    "After the events of this past weekend, Madonna once again demonstrates that she continues to have her ear firmly planted to the ground and is able to tap into a message that the public at large (and our elected leaders) need to hear, even if it is one that is extremely difficult to both watch and listen to."

     

    Amen.

    I'm guilty of that hehe its one of those that is so bad that its good

    😀😀 Yes, I just played it for the first time in 300 years, it seems! Allowed myself to be naive—and totally enjoyed it, but will probably sit there again for 300 years! So fun.

    "Over and Over" probably has an apologist somewhere, too.

    Haaa! You know it. I also played that for the first time in years - but I didn't finish, although I loooved that song back in the day. 

    Myself, I adore the often maligned Spanish Lessons and although I am not sure how it's received here, I've a good friend for despises Mother and Father while I think it's beyond brilliant and makes me cry. 

    Now, will the Hey You fan(s) stand up and be counted? 🙂

    So many diverse opinions. I love it. The power of M. 

    Yes!!

    Funny, I was getting pissy reading some responses (neither? really?) but it's only because I love this album so much. Silly to get butthurt over opinions. Think I'm just having a day.  Thanks for reminding me of the positive power of M. 🙂

    And still FG for me.
