  1. Ugh, yeah, the wives reality shows - this has taken over the female pop star obsession. Anything that can be a new funny GIF is more exciting than a dance song/routine or actual art.
  2. Yes, that's true - but we still had superstars despite that. The industry just doesn't work the same way anymore. I really don't know if it's even possible for an up and coming artist to have a career like Madonna even if they are talented - I'm not so sure anyones career could even remotely resemble some of the icons that we had in the past (and those who are still present today) because the world we live in and the way we get our entertainment is completely different. I definitely need new music and something exciting to happen in the pop scene.
  3. Ok, maybe it's not an age thing than - haha. Maybe money in the industry is a problem? Concert ticket prices sky rocketed about 10 years ago since albums weren't really making any money and now we are seeing prices getting officially reduced from the official ticket seller as shows get closer to the date of the event - everyone has hit their limit as to what their willing to pay. Anyway, what's considered talent and celebrity in this day and age is a joke - youtube stars and reality show winners and runner up's are ruling the industry and when they fade the public moves on to someone else - instantly. I mean, one 30 minute entertainment daily news show on TV can spend 10 minutes talking about a Kardashian? That's what excites people now, not pop stars.
  4. The whole pop music scene is just gone at the moment. It's all tired and repetitive beats by DJ's with "singers" who have no face, no personality, and certainly aren't worthy of being in a tabloid. I was just talking about this the other day and how I might have heard a song or two by chance, I would have no idea who actually "sings" it. I don't watch a lot of TV but when I do and I pass by a show about celebrities it's mostly reality TV stars mixed in with a few recognizable names - it's horrible. Even the bigger names aren't selling what they used to and concert ticket sales are slower than before. We are in desperate need of a new sound, a new image, someone who actually has something to say. Also, is anyone else sick of the whole song/dance routine? I mean, it's always the same thing - sexy outfit, back up dancers, electronic music - repeat. Maybe it's my age (i'm heading towards 35), but i'm finding myself moving away from pop music unless it's coming from someone who's already established and not from the new generation - these people don't appeal to me at all (Rihanna, Taylor, Selena Gomez, Katy Perry, Ariana Grande - and I couldn't name many (if any) of their songs. I laugh when I see commercials for award shows - they announce all the names of the performers and i'm like 'Who???".
  5. Addressing the crowd

    I was just thinking about all Madonna's entrances to the stage on each tour, and for the most part BA is usually the top of the list - or in the top 2. One of the best things about that entrance is how Madonna addresses the crowd immediately upon hitting the stage - belting out some type of greeting - and the whole "DO YOU BELIEVE IN LOVE????!!" - That energy really excites the crowd. I don't believe she's done it since BA. I guess it takes away from a theatrical more complex opening? Just a thought?
  6. I agree - the 80's hits are great, but it's time to give the 90's hits some attention!
  7. Depends on what kind of tour it is. A GH tour - then these 5: Vogue (in full, with bridge) Like a Prayer - with choreography (similar to BA) Everybody Lucky Star Express Yourself No re-inventions necessary A regular tour: Causing a Commotion Bad Girl You'll See I'll Remember CHERISH
  8. Vogue from the tours ranked

    Completely agree about the BA performance. Yes, it has the original choreography but there's no WOW factor to it like there is MDNA, or even RIT. The costumes from BA "Vogue" aren't show stopping at all.
  9. M shades Cherish

    That's ok - she'll be performing it on the next tour now. Just like "Material Girl" and "True Blue" - it will more than likely return in some form eventually. At least I hope so.
  10. Masterpiece vs. Ghosttown

    I was at this show - and this was definitely a highlight. The whole night was just perfect - her live vocals were on point. "True Blue"/"Heartbreak City"/"Love don't live here anymore" were just increddible.

    1 - RIT 2 - MDNA 3 - BAT (I always thought this should have been more elaborate on BAT since it was the current hit song) 4 - GS 5 - RH 6 - S&S

  13. I wouldn't mind a residency - can you imagine how amazing a show like that would be from Madonna?! If she does the Vegas/Greatest Hits type show - she could having the biggest, best show to ever hit the Vegas strip. We'd all be screaming at the numbers, hype, promo, and the fact that her face would be plastered everywhere! I'm ok with this - she's done 10 world tours and if she wants to try something new I think it would be a brilliant show. Of course, she'd have to play by the rules by singing songs everyone knows, and starting on time. The show also couldn't be called "Madonna: The Candy Shop Experience" either! LOL. I think technologically speaking, they could even try some new effects since the show wouldn't be moving around. I'd pay good money to fly to Vegas to see this type of show from her. I've been seeing her live since RIT and i'm ready for something new and that I haven't seen before. While Madonna is always above the rest in my book, the pop show format hasn't changed much in the last 20 years. Now, are we talking a TOAC type residency? I'm ok with that also - I mean, I love Madonna's big spectacle shows, but a night in a theatre with something scaled down would be interesting and intimate. I'm not sure i'd fly somewhere to see it but if it was in NYC and I could get a ticket at a reasonable price (about $500.00) i'd go. Perhaps she could do that prior to going on a major world tour again (maybe even a GH tour). The possibilities are endless and i'm looking forward to what she has in mind.
  14. This is one of the great things about Madonna. She isn't just dance music - she has evolved so much from the beginning of her career and what's so great is that even now, she can come right back to her roots and still put out a great dance track. I always say there's a Madonna album for every mood - If I don't feel like something upbeat and care-free, I turn to a different album - but I don't have to turn to a different artist (if I don't want to) to get what i'm looking for at the moment - Madonna has something for every emotion. I've actually listened to all of her albums in full, in a row, and it's just such great mix.
  15. Taylor Swift thread 🐍

    Same here and the reason is because it's all forgettable. It's the flavor of the moment but none of these acts are really making an impact with songs that reach multiple demographics. By that I mean, older people don't have to like/listen to these songs, but you can't possibly NOT know some of them unless you live under a rock. If a song makes an impact, we all know it. You've at least heard a memorable chorus, a controversial lyric, something....it's just so boring anymore. For example, I know One Direction was huge, but I couldn't tell you one song they sang - when *Nsync and Backstreet Boys were huge - who didn't know "I want it that way" or even "Bye, Bye, Bye"? - you might not have known who it was from, but you knew the song.
