  1. P!nk

    P!nk mentioned Madonna a lot earlier in her career, but hasn't in a years to my knowledge. I wonder what happened - she didn't even bother to reference M in her VMA speech when she called out other artists.
  2. I wonder what the spin is from her fans - UPS forgot to ship tickets?
  3. Mariah Carey/KFC thread

    I love how CNN's music episode of The 90's didn't even bother to mention Mariah. Goes to show that despite all the (paid for) #1 hits, this woman contributed absolutely nothing to popular culture or the music industry.

    Haven't cared for anything from her since M!sundaztood to be perfectly honest....
  5. Whitney 'Can I Be Me'

    Yes, it was the VOICE that made you look past her performance and the sappiness of much of her material. Like this:
  6. I can't imagine Janet was too pleased with how the '90 VMA's turned out - she was all set up to "steal" the show by being the opening act and getting the Video Vanguard Award. Then came Madonna with the Vogue performance, which everyone talked about the next day and which has obviously done down in history as one of the definitive VMA moments....
  7. The legendary CHER

    There's long been rumours that Cher had a nervous breakdown backstage prior to presenting Best Picture to Rain Man at the 1989 Oscars. It was said that Jack Nicholson had to console her backstage and almost co-presented with her. She does look a bit frazzled here - I guess the nerves of standing in front of the Hollywood elite will really do that to a person.
  8. The legendary CHER

    Cher's successful foray into acting in the 80's is really one of the most interesting things about her. The fact she was able to be taken seriously as an actress (and walk away with an Oscar on top of that) is really commendable. She really worked her ass off to establish a career in film there for a while. I think she's even acknowledged on several occasions that she finds herself to be a better actress than singer.
  9. The legendary CHER

    I wish she would try acting again (I know she's working on a movie for Lifetime - but those aren't exactly quality productions). Cher's possibly the only modern diva that was better at acting than singing/performing. Though, I'd guess that there probably aren't many roles for her at this age...
  10. Janet Jackson thread ☕️

    Still waiting for UPS to ship her Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction?
  11. Janet Jackson - 14-month pregnancy

    She's still waiting for UPS to ship her baby.
  12. [YOUTUBE] Music Artists on Madonna

    It was a 2008 interview with HX Magazine: HX: I'm not sure if you're aware of this, but there's an Internet war between Janet and Madonna fans. I know you and Madonna had some beef in the '90s, but do you think the heat between Madonna and Janet fans has any validity? Janet: No—I didn't know this was going on. [Laughs] They argue, make videos and, of course, it's mostly the gay fans. So people are curious: What are your thoughts on Madonna now? Janet: I think she's done wonderful things. She's done great things in her career, in her life, and more power to her. I think fans will always be that way—always. They're just incredibly loyal and they love you so much that if anyone says anything remotely negative, they're there to just immediately jump on them. It'll always be that way—very loyal.
  13. Billboard celebrating Human Nature

    Every artist goes through a wilderness period where they try to find themselves again, and for Madonna, that was perhaps the period between Erotica and Ray of Light. SEX did hurt her mass commercial appeal (at the time at least), but in a way, she was probably due for some sort of downfall after the end of her imperial phase - which ended with The Blonde Ambition Tour/release of Justify My Love and The Immaculate Collection. I don't think the general public quite knew what to make of her after Erotica/SEX - she was still popular, but not quite as invincible as she was in the 80's/very early 90's. Bedtime Story, Something To Remember, and Evita were her "cooling down and vulnerable" phases - they were necessary to soften her image and preserve her profile after Erotica/SEX seemingly turned off a huge part of the general public. The transformation was over by the time she released Ray of Light, and one could argue that's when she entered her "silver age" and found who she really was an artist again (not that anything before it was bad, it wasn't, but to some it may have seemed like she was going through the motions in the mid 90's).
