  1. I just can't at Madonna fans looking down on Kim K. They call her "trash", but Madonna was and is still seen as "trash" (even "talentless") by many. Why do to Kim K what many did/are doing to Madonna?
  2. Masterpiece vs. Ghosttown

    Is payola such a bad thing? Maybe Mo's team should have resorted to payola to ensure stronger radio airplay. To me, ageism is a much bigger crime than payola.
  3. Madonna's Hair 2017

    Regarding the roots, I've noticed it's actually fashionable. Paris Jackson http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-5060271/Meet-Tyler-Green-hunk-cosied-Paris-Jackson.html Miley Cyrus http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-5056639/Miley-Cyrus-takes-social-media-Texas-shooting.html

    Costly? Not if done at home.
  5. Madonna's Hair 2017

    ^^ Could have been grey or the effect of bleaching. I like the dark roots. Looks nice (like on this single cover from a few years ago).
  6. We need another dark hair era

    This episode??? This one??? I don't understand...
  7. Madonna invented halftime

    Madonna said on some nights, her mic stopped functioning during 'Vogue'. She just sang over a very loud track. Listen to the Dallas recording. Pay attention to the "Oooh"s at the end, and then compare them to the studio version. She may have mimed most of it, but the ending definitely had some live vocals. As for the GS, the first lines were live for sure.
  8. Madonna invented halftime

    So, even CeeLo Green mimed? 'Open Your Heart/Express Yourself' and 'Like a Prayer' had that live feel to them... Maybe she sang over the track? If not, too bad. I remember Elton John advising her too "lip-synch good" just before her performance, and I wished she'd prove him wrong.
  9. Madonna invented halftime

    I know this question was more or less answered before... But do we know for sure the Madonna's Halftime show was completely mimed? I listened again, and it seems like 'Open Your Heart/Express Yourself' and 'Like a Prayer' may have been live or semi-live (like microphones turned on, not just props). 'Vogue'? May have been pre-recorded and totally lipped. 'Music/Sexy and I Know It' and 'Give Me All Your Luvin'' sounded just like the studio versions... But didn't Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. wear mic packs (or were those just props)? As for early nineties 'Vogue', it was not completely mimed on the 'Blond Ambition Tour'; Madonna confirmed it herself in 'Truth or Dare'. MJ's Halftime show sounded totally mimed (was it?), but nobody diminished his talent for that.
  10. Cyndi Lauper: Madonna is Not Eloquent

    I've always been very supportive of Madonna during the course of her career and would often defend her when unduly attacked. Madonna took digs at Pope John Paul II, George W. Bush, Sarah Palin and Marine Le Pen (among others), so it's nothing new. On Pope John Paul II: "Absolutely. Catholicism is what I was raised with, that’s the religion I know, but I disagree with almost every principle of it. If I ever got into a room with the Pope, I would probably fly into a rage with him. All of this adulation. I don’t think people realize what he’s actually saying. I mean, women have literally, absolutely no rights in the Church. There is no freedom, there’s no choice. I know a lot of Catholics who go to church, who practice, but they don’t agree with three fourths of it. But it’s good to have faith, and I love going to church. I don’t necessarily like going to mass, but I do love going to church." http://allaboutmadonna.com/madonna-library/madonna-interview-spin-january-1996 On George W. Bush, US President at the time: "Go to Texas, where you can suck George Bush's d*ck!" On Sarah Palin: "Sarah F**king Palin!" As for Marine Le Pen, she got a Nazi cross on her forehead (during the 'Nobody Knows Me' MDNA Tour interlude). But this time, it feels different. The White House (akin to Buckingham Palace) is sacred to Americans. Not everything needs to be said in public. What Madonna said kinda cheapens and defiles the sanctity of the White House. In other words, "If I don't agree w/ the current régime, the whole White House (home to the President) might as well be blown up!" I understand she may not have seriously considered blowing it up, and she then explained despair (violence) is not the answer, but that particular White House reference was not so wise nor advisable. Besides, there are many crazies out there contemplating ways to actually assassinate the President (regardless of how that would affect his 10 year-old son, Barron). Back then, in 2003, being against Bush and the US military action in Iraq was somewhat more risky (Madonna ending up pulling the 'American Life' MV from the airwaves and the net), but now, the anti-Trump sentiment is so strong that in spite of criticism, Madonna's receiving tons of accolades. Being publicly pro-Trump (like singer Azealia Banks or former actress Kimberlin Brown) takes a LOT more guts. Aaron Carter experienced heavy cyber-bullying after his public support of Trump (support he ended up withdrawing). Carter also confessed to having been emotionally distraught by all that bullying (which shows a lack of tolerance from anti-Trumpers). In my observation, the anti-Trump sentiment is completely irrational. Reinforcing homeland security, stopping illegal immigration, eradicating radical Islamic terrorism and drastically improving the economy are some of Trump's top priorities. One may or may not agree w/ the way he's going about things, but that mounting tension ain't solving anything. And not all Trump supporters are racists, religious nutjobs (like pastors calling for gays to be killed) and what not! What about the Left just gives him a chance?

    How can you Tell it was a Trump fan? All I heard her say is "Play the music!"
  12. Trump / US politics thread 🚽

    Marine Le Pen explained the euro currency makes everything more expensive in France, and if elected, she'd try to bring back the franc. This is one of the reasons why she wants a FREXIT—out of the European Union!
  13. Madonna at Women's March

    Hillary won the popular vote, but Trump won more States (30 vs. 20, 304 electoral votes vs. 227). Therefore, he got more voters across the country. Hillary literally did have more voters, but they were not so widespread cross-country.
  14. Madonna at Women's March

    Vocals sounded raw, but still good to me. I agree w/ you on the two other points.
