  1. I think she did good as usual with Like a Prayer. She was singing live and wearing an eye patch while walking on stairs, it is fair to say that we couldn’t expect better than this. It was an okay performance. My problem though is with her new songs. No matter how fancy her costumes are i can’t ignore the fact that Future is a very boring song. Im not feeling this album at all.
  2. I like this song more than Medellin! Her soulful voice mixed with the deep music base is great! I love it!
  3. I wish she would kill him in the end of the video as it would make it less predictable... it's a good video nevertheless.
  4. She looks the best with the blue dress, somehow it makes her eyes stand out more. It is what expected, a video with Maluma courting her.
  5. I like the standard with the black hair, i imagine this very striking on a vinyl cover.
  6. I feel exactly as this. After 20 listenings it grew from very bad to just bad, I'm sure the video will improve the song by gluing an image on it.
  7. I agree about GMAYL but i'm not sure that Medelin sounds "fresh". Sure in the sense of Madonna's discography it is an uncharted sound, but i'm not feeling this song as much i would like. It feels like a filler for the album and there is a lot of Maluma on it, much more than any other colaboration she has ever done.
  8. I would agree but i feel its a tie between GMAYL and Medelin. At least on GMAYL she sings the entire song, but on Medelin her voice sounds better.
  9. Her voice is great but she sings the very minimum part of the song. Maluma totally owns it. It sounds like a Maluma song featuring Madonna. I can't believe this is the lead single.
  10. I think this is the idea. i love it so much more than the deluxe cover
  11. l feel it's already the filler forgettable song of this album and i haven't even listened to it lol
  12. I agree... it's a change from her previous party themed albuns of the last decade... To some degree Rebel Heart already indicated the trend of ressurecting her power ballads...
  13. The vibe of this album certainly seems to be "sad mood" It doesn't look like an album full of party tracks, except the feats with Anitta and Maluma... I'm feeling this album will be full of introspective ballads mixed with a signature Mirwais sound...
  14. I like the cover.... it's not great but it's not terrible... it's okay i guess
  15. It seems like it. It is probably too late now to have a deal. The EU washed its hands and Britain is now facing the hard reality of leaving without a deal plunging the goverment and its citizens to chaos.
  16. His ellection was denounced by the same usual entities patroned by the US that want to oust Maduro for years and also the previous president Hugo Chaves. Just for oil. If those two were cooperative with the US interests i can assure you this thing would never have happened, Maduro would be dining in the White House just like the vicious tyrannical kings of Saudi Arabia.
  17. Maduro is the elected president. This guy is not. By the way, just look who says Maduro ellection is illegal.That’s right. The same guy of the National Assembly who just self proclaimed himself president! This is an absurd! Imagine if the same thing happened in the US, the guy would be already in jail facing torture on Guantanamo. This is madness!
  18. This is madness. This guy has absolutely no right to self proclaim himself the president of Venezuela. He will definitely be in jail by tomorrow. The far-right government in Brazil has just announced it stands for the self proclaimed authorities in Venezuela. Things are very ugly right now. Some people say that the risk of war has just increased by tenfold.
  19. If anyone cares, here is an alternative point of view of the double standards of what is happening in Paris. Revolution in Ukraine? Yes, please! Revolution in France? Rule of law! When violent protests shook Kiev in 2013, Western analysts and leaders quickly threw their support behind the anti-government ‘revolution’ — but after weeks of Yellow Vest protests in France, the reaction has been very different. While Western governments and commentators denounced the Ukrainian government of Viktor Yanukovych and urged that he give in to protesters’ demands five years ago, this time around, they are denouncing the French protesters and urging President Emmanuel Macron, whose popularity stands at about 25 percent, to stand firm against dissatisfied citizens. Western media coverage has also differed drastically with reports describing French protesters as rioters, while Ukrainian protesters were described as revolutionaries. The contrasting reaction has prompted many to ask the question: If a so-called revolution is allowed to happen (and even applauded) in Ukraine, why not in France? French police have cracked down on the ‘Yellow Vest’ protesters in bloody clashes, during which water cannons and tear gas were deployed to disperse huge crowds, who responded by throwing stones at officers. The extent of the chaos has even caused officials to mull imposing a state of emergency and prompted concerns that protest movement could spread to countries like Germany and the Netherlands. Worried government officials and French and European political commentators have eagerly called for the “rule of law” to be respected and for violent protesters to respect French institutions. In Kiev, however, when protesters set fire to cars, defaced public property and attacked police officers, they were held up as heroes. Law and order was of little concern to Western media which wholeheartedly supported the Maidan movement. Similarly, when anti-government protests kicked off in Syria in 2011, Western leaders and commentators advocated the swift overthrow of the government and provided moral (and material) support to anti-government rebels during the subsequent civil war which ripped the country apart. During a visit to Argentina for the G20 Summit last weekend, Macron vowed that he would “not concede anything” to the “thugs” who want “destruction and disorder.” His unwillingness to cave in the face of a mass protest movement, however, has not prompted any calls for him to step down and respect the will of the people, as happened in Ukraine and Syria. On Twitter, well-known French political commentator and media personality Bernard-Henri Lévy, lashed out at the Yellow Vest protesters, accusing them of “playing with fire” and saying that all that matters is respect for French institutions and the democratically-election president. Lévy’s followers, however, were quick to remind him that his reaction to protests in Ukraine were quite different. Lévy, who was in Ukraine during the Euromaidan movement, actively promoted it, giving speeches and tweeting enthusiastically about the protests. When Yanukovych was overthrown, he described it as a “a historical defeat against tyranny.” As the protests raged on for the third week, other Twitter users sarcastically mocked the patronizing Western reaction to anti-government movements in other regions, with one suggesting that perhaps hundreds of Arab experts could get together at fancy conferences to attempt to decipher the causes of this fascinating ‘European Winter’ movement. Another said it was about time that Iranian President Hassan Rouhani called on Macron to exercise “restraint” and ensure that the “freedom of expression and demonstration” are respected in France. Sarcasm aside, it looks very much like violent revolutions and regime change are only a good enough solution to crises in countries far away from the centres of Western power and influence and led by uncooperative governments. When the rumblings of revolution are felt in Paris, where Macron remains committed to upholding a neoliberal, West-centric world order, it's a different story entirely. https://www.rt.com/op-ed/445475-france-protests-hypocrisy-media/
