  1. I adore the Rebel Heart album but I just finally listened to the 80 plus demos and I cannot imagine where Madonna would have taken us if Avicii would not have gotten sick, if the leaks would have not happened and if Live Nation would have allowed her double Rebel/Heart album. ICONIC mix 4 is fucking fantastic.... I.I.I.I.I.I.I Iconic... Most of the early demos were so cutting edge... Messiah... Avicii's Rebel Heart and Wash All Over Me.... BIM... The earliest Living for Love's "Sing Halleluiahs" are incredible... Madonna brought it lyrically but created a standard sound, scrapping the new sound that she had been creating for the record.... Rebel Heart is an excellent record but the demos make me yearn for the true vission. Fucking mesmerizing.... One of the HeartBreakCity demos is so off the chain that I just cannot.... And the many incarnations of Hold Tight???? I could go on but I won't. Anyway.... Fuck the leaker.... Madonna described the leaks as "artistic rape".... Now I understand her sentiments entirely.....
  2. Yep... I bought it for the pure pleasure, knowing that it was not official...
  3. For me, witnessing Madonna perform a song often changes it for me. I am not particularly enamored with Like a Virgin but I adore every live reincarnation of the song from "Will you marry me?" to the Rebel Heart tour version. Highlights are the Blonde Ambition masturbatory version, the Girlie Show's Marlene Dietrich version, and the MDNA Virgin/Love Spent medley. It is a song that she always owns regardless of the fact that she wrote none of it.
  4. Enlightenment is personal.... I am not a 70's closeted gay guy or a 10's gay guy that doesn't understand history.... I got the shit beat out of me everyday for decades.... I understand sacrifice.... I know what it is like to be on the outside... Madonna was the first person to tell me that I was ok.... That started my love affair in the early 80's.... I love her... because she taught me to love myself and others.....
  5. I don't hate drag..... My initial point was that LGBTQ people can be anything....
  6. I promise that I will not sleep more than 10 hours after that ill thought out retribution for not accepting drag as anything but counterfeit art... Art is creation, not cheap imitation..... And I am a proud gay man as is my husband.... and we both love Madonna and understand the history of gay rights....
  7. All of the admonishment toward me on a celebrity blog site... I am full of shame... I promise that I will not sleep more that 10 hours for not defining myself by my preferred sexual position or fetish.... Madonna is the Queen.... RuPaul is a poser.... Madonna should avoid a repeat like a 90120 reunion....
  8. Yeah... I absolutely feel enlightened as I am a proud gay man who refuses to be defined by my fetishes or preferred sexual position.... I can be anything without playing dress up and lipsynching to somebody else's art... I do not have to be a counterfeit anythong for anybody... So that makes me feel enlightened. Sorry... not sorry....
  9. Fuck the Radio!!!! The album could swing back at ageism and misogyny within the entertainment industry....
  10. Rupaul's Drag Race seems tired and so yesteryear... Besides Madonna already transformed gender bending decades ago by taking it mainstream.... I hope that M avoids the show at all cost. Why not get her on The Family Fued while we are at it.... ? Or maybe.... just maybe we could enjoy another reinvention rather than a mundane rehash.... Maybe it is just the enlightened, gay boy in me but I tend to avoid all programming that stereotypes my people. In 2017, we are more than Drag Queens. We are mayors, movie stars, senators, educators, doctors, lawyers, aviators, soldiers, news anchors, CEOs and so much more.... Gone are the days when the occupational choices for "out" gays oncluded hair stylist, flower arranger and drag queen..... I would prefer it if we were represented equally in all of our roles. Just saying.... Not a fan....
  11. This was tough…. I ranked M’s albums on how many songs each era brought me that I cannot personally live without. The ties were broken by mere personal preference for M’s imagery and genre for the particular era. This was very tough. It is a different way of doing this, I know but it was an interesting exercise. Long live the Queen. 1.

  12. Hard Candy is a very good album... I just think that it sounds more like Timbaland, Pharrell, and Justin.... than Madonna.... To me, it feels like she adapted her style to theirs rather owning it like the Mirwais.... Orbit.... Bray and Pettibone productions.... I still love it.... I feel the same about the Kanye productions on Rebel Heart.... I like the darkness that Maybe brought but it doesn't feel Madonna to me....
  13. American Life and Rebel Heart were two of her top 5.... not bottom five.... Like a Virgin and Hard Candy are my least favorites, only because they are the least "Madonna-like".... MDNA was not bad.... I wish that she would have found a prominent music style and embraced it.... but I'm a Sinner, Love Spent, Masterpiece, I Fucked Up, Beautiful Killer, Gang Bang and Falling Free are absolute "to die for tracks".... You need to revisit the 40+ Rebel Heart tracks and seriously reassess....
