    Ghosttown to be a sleeper hit? Discuss

    And Blaming piracy is silly since her streams are pitiful as well. Piracy is real. Streaming also is affected. Why would anyone stream a song that was in their library? Your argument doesn't even make sense.

    Ghosttown to be a sleeper hit? Discuss

    Ghosttown is great. So was Living for Love. Her music is really quite excellent at the moment. She clearly still outsells most artists. YES. I SAID IT. Madonna still outsells most artists. Rebel Heart, MDNA, and Hard Candy all outsold MOST artists. Every Madonna record since 1983 has outsold most artists. Interest in Madonna is not the problem. Sales have not been her problem either. Lots of music is played that has far undersold M-s records. Is the industry ageist? Hell yes. Sexist? Hell yes. Still, Madonna is putting the industry to shame by achieving mammoth success despite being ignored by radio. Her fans are all over the world. Meghan Trainor, Iggy Azalea, and Ariana Grande are being played on infinite repeat but none of them will ever be Madonna. M has had her love affair with the radio. In my opinion, her music is much better now. I'm a Sinner is a far more sophisticated song than Lucky Star or Material Girl. M made a choice with Justify My Love to be a rebel. She chose to actually say something socially meaningful. M made a choice with the Erotica album to be an artist and not a caged, pop princess. M made a choice during American Life to reject her prior personas and radio dropped her. Mainstream media loves Madonna's HEART but does not understand her REBEL. Not being played non-stop on radio has not hurt Madonna. Perhaps, it even has kept the interest alive. She has a mystique that other artists cannot compete with. Her tours are legend and you see how every audience responds to her (including the BRITS performance). She is idolized and revered. She is not the flavor of the moment. Thank God for that as it allows her the platform to be more creative than all of her counterparts. She is an ICON. If commercial success (which Madonna still has) and radio play are your only barometers then blame the fan base. Let's face it. People steal her music by the droves. There are people on this forum and others that steal from her catalog and refuse to truly support her. I have actually read countless posts relaying the idea that they like the new album almost enough to buy. Do people have to buy? No but they sure as hell do not have to steal. Why should she invest in singles and massive videos to entertain thieves? If every person that stole her demos this go around actually now bought the record...Madonna's Rebel Heart would be number one next week. Some people would rather bitch and steal. That's not Live Nation's fault. That's not Guy Oseary's fault. That's not the record industry's fault. And that's not M-s fault. PIRACY IS WRONG AND HINDERS ART. IF YOU STEAL YOU ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM.

    Miami January 23

    I am going both nights.
  4. M is quite the chameleon. LUV her. She actually has ideas behind her art. When I heard her explain the sexy clergy clothes on the reinvention da ncers, I was amazed. It wasn't to offend or just to be artsy. She was making a commentary that religion can destroy and divide us rather than promote humanity. She is a true artist.
  5. I love it. It is questionable and the questions mean that we have our M back. No more English Manor Maiden (although I love her too). It is like Madonna putting away a persona and choosing another. Queen of reinvention. Never liked the grilz or the erotic gold tooth but I love both Dita and M-dolla. It is all about playing a character. I love all of her personas. She is like Roger from American Dad. Luv it all.

    Hold Tight!

    I was less impressed with the demo (liked it but didn't love it). The album version is Epic but so is the MNEK version. I love this song now. The changes were made, I'm sure because of the leaks, but it really worked for this one.
  7. If she performs, I hope she does Iconic. It could be exciting and appropriate for the boring award show audiences.

    Miami January 23

    Yeah. Let the Miami Nationers meet up. I will be there both nights.
  9. I thought that M could not sell Bitch I'm Madonna but I was wrong. Very wrong. What a fun performance. Impressive Instant. Makes me want to get up and do something.

    BORROWED TIME

    My fave on the entire album (including demos). I was disappointed when it did not make the Deluxe 19 but was thrilled when it was included on the SD. In my Playlist, I play it right after Living for Love. I can't get enough of Borrowed Time. XOXOX

    Rate the Ghosttown video

    I am only giving this a 10 because I can't give it a 12.
  12. People will complain but two great videos from this album already. We could have got a world flag video , a Miles Away, Get Together, Give it 2 Me, or a Jump video. But we didn't. Visually stunning and the song...let's face it is off the chain. I LOVED EVERY MOMENT of it.
  13. I think that it is the grilz with the cross. Makes the gap look big.
  14. It is gorgeous! A video to rival her 90's videos for certain. Love live the Queen!

    MADONNA NATION BITCHES NEED TO MEET UP IN MIAMI! We should raise the roof. Any Madonna parties/etc in Miami during that time? I am going both nights. I cannot wait.

    Ghosttown Remixes

    100% agree. A couple of the TUTR remixes did the same thing, excited you with a verse and then absolutely no trace of M for the remainder of the song. Ghosttown is about M....not Don Diablo. I do like the restructure though. It is interesting and fresh.

    Got tix for the second show this morning.......2 nights of pure ecstasy. I cannot wait. I have never been to Miami.....Making a trip of it. Getting my Rebel Heart ready!
  19. Got my 2nd night Miami Tix. Yayyyyyyyyy!!!!!!
  20. Has anyone seen Madonna's instagram. Holy Fuck.....She has never looked better. Never.
  21. What about all of the fuck wads that have illegally downloaded her last five albums and not supported M at all. REAL FANS DO NOT DOWNLOAD AND NOT BUY. To me, there is a big difference in being an anxious fan and a theif.....The difference is buying the material when it is released. Madonna has suffered sales for some time due to piracy.

    Rebel Heart album discussion

    Interesting M interviews as of late. Looks like the leaks really did change the album. The leaked 25 track version also changed after the final leak. Omitted Queen and Autotune Baby. As well Avicii's illness factored in to the production. M claims she changed things just so that they would be different. I wonder what album we would have got without the leaks and the illness, not that I'm complaining but the darkness was added because of the leaks. It is all fascinating. Rebel Heart is off the chain in both demo and final versions. ♡♡♡♡♡
  23. Are you kidding me??? People have declared her over for thirty years yet she sits on the pop world's music thrown. Madonna needs to release whatever the hell she wants and just be an artist. She will be fine.
