  1. Well, I have to think that "Like A Prayer" (the song) tends to be universally loved, so my thinking is that something might be in the works to actually do something with this album's anniversary. Again, wishful thinking!
  2. Greatest Hits really do not sell well in this time. If the songs were actually remastered, maybe, but other than that, what's the difference than just slapping on what's already out there? It would be cool if she could market it with the anniversary release of Like A Prayer, but we know that won't happen. Part of me was thinking (more like hoping), that the whole Met Gala was actually filmed and she would release it next year with an Like a Prayer anniversary set, but since she didn't do anything much for her previous albums anniversary releases, it's just wishful thinking.
  3. Unfortunately, she is getting a pass on this. I agree it's quite tone deaf to wear this even if she really was wearing it to send a message to the press. It appears she's worn it again today.
  4. Hmm? I think there's some miscommunication going on here? I didn't say Madonna "didn't sign off on the final design of her album, or that some employee took it upon themselves to flip the image". I simply stated, the report I recall hearing from MTV NEWS is when it went to press, it was assumed that it was upside down, and that's when someone took it upon themselves and turned her right side up. That to me isn't far fetched. And I'm sorry you don't believe me and are trying to condescend me. But in the U.S., MTV used to have a news break every hour or so within their broadcasting. It was during one of the News breaks, I recall there was a mention of the mistake. Whether it was something that important or not, isn't the point since up until the late 90's, MTV reported pretty much every fart or sneeze she made. Anyway, it's a ridiculous argument to have here, so I'm moving on unless someone can chime in with a respectful reply without trying to undermine another.
  5. To me, it doesn't sound too far fetched, nor did I feel as if I was misinforming anyone since it was reported on MTV NEWS back in the day. I don't see why Kurt Loder/MTV would just make that up. But who knows? I was just sharing what I knew and maybe someone else can corroborate it.
  6. What's with the backhanded compliment? I was simply adding my two cents. If I incorrectly recalled what MTV NEWS reported back then, then I apologize. Though, I specifically recall Kurt Loder of MTV NEWS stating that Madonna intended the image of her to be upside down, and when it went to press, they thought it was a mistake and flipped it right side up. I'm a little baffled why you chose to respond to me in this way when I was offering something I recalled from back in the day? I wasn't offering some outrageous theory! As you stated to "Ladyplus", "I lived it!" Whether what Kurt reported was true or not, I guess it's anyone's guess, but that's what was reported at the time in 1994.
  7. Not to step on any toes here, but I just took a picture of my original BEDTIMES STORIES CD which I bought in 1994 in the U.S. on the day of it's release: Shortly after the album's release, I recall MTV reported, the original pressing printed the covers wrong. Madonna submitted the image of her to be intentionally upside down, but Warners assumed it was a mistake and flipped it. Future pressings were of the way Madonna intended which was her upside down! @Ladyplus
  8. WOW! So I purposely chose a FOX report on this to see their point of view: So if anyone is trying to say, "let's focus on the issues, not her wardrobe", then why the hell wear something that says something like that. I mean, c'mon? What do you think people are going to think after what's gone down with the Immigration issue: Children being taken away from their parents? You can't expect people aren't going to NOT say anything about this. Who goes around wearing something like that if they don't want people to talk about it? Up until now, I just thought Melania was just a naive puppet in all of this, but no more.
  9. Sorry, I don't buy that. I do think she's "hands on" much everything she does. Though, in a sense you're right about the fact she's not sitting around thinking of ways for album to go #1, etc, nor do I think Guy is either. He's her business manager. He's just one part of the management team. I'm sure many suggestions are thrown around to promote her products and she ultimately chooses which way to go. Certainly, I am not naive to think, she isn't influenced by what others say. But that's how it works. She's no dummy. She knows what she's doing, and I don't believe for a second she's forced to do anything she doesn't want to do. I know a lot of people hate Guy here, but I'm pretty indifferent about him. No doubt, he's part of the family. He's not going anywhere, anytime soon. He may not be perfect, but ultimately Madonna is in charge here!
  10. I agree. As @Katypatra, we might get variations, but she's not going to make any drastic changes to color or her length. I personally think she looks her best with long blonde hair. Older people usually gravitate to shorter hair. She's yet again, refraining from conventional stereotypes of people her age. At this point, if she's looking to drastically change her hair, it will be through wigs.
  11. Fun going through the RECAP. Thanks @Rock
  12. The extreme right will say just about anything won't they? Ann Coultier (vile woman) claims the children are all "actors". Maybe she needs to visit these facilities to see for herself this is real. Knowing her, she will still claim it's all fake. Idiots!!
  13. Yep! He's left people outraged, blaming the Democrats, so he can swoop in and claim he's fixed it. When all he's going to do is follow the same policy that was in place before without separating the children. And his dulltard of followers will eat it up! #trumpforpesident2020 I think I'm gonna be sick!!
  14. Looks like a clever way to tease us if this has anything to do with her career.
  15. Why is it a "bummer"? She's always done magazine spreads before album releases. Even if it's not, we get awesome new pictures and another great interview. We can hope some talk on the new album. Also, these magazines are done a few months in advance, so it might just be one way she's going to bombard us with her presence!!
  16. The resistance is building. Let's hope those who have short attention spans stick with it and not bashed protesters. Also, I hope the protests are peaceful or it will defeat the purpose. No doubt, there will be some who will rip into the protestors anyway.
  17. If I recall, she had some major issues with the perfume and eventually gave up. Maybe someone who knows the facts can share that with us, and I can't recall the specifics. I just recall in an interview she seemed put out by it all. The skin line seems to be going more her way, so she's behind it!! I totally agree! I love all of the shoots they've done with her.
  18. I don't mind the MDNA skin line. I'll never use it, and have no interest in it. Though, I do love all the promotion behind it, including the creative and artistic videos that came of it. (I know, I know! That's purely subjective, so spare me the "artistic" argument because my point is regarding the new album). She's taken much opportunity before this new album to promote the hell out of it. So again, as I don't mind the whole MDNAskin line, I do hope once the album is rolled out, she'll focus only on that. I think she needs to put just as much energy and passion in promoting that as her skin line of late.
  19. Unfortunately, that's him in a nutshell. When I heard him stand there and tell reporters that it's "all on the democrats" and make the excuse "10 democrats" are keeping this from changing, I thought, what a load of Bologna! And any humane person could see by blaming this on the previous administration is pure nonsense since the previous administration did not cage and separate the children from their parents. This is all a game to him. It's sick and it sickens me to know some are defending it, thinking this is the way to go to "make America great again!" Ugh!! It was far greater than what is now before that blowtard entered the White House!!
  20. Speaking as an American, much of the country is disgusted and outraged over this. Unfortunately, this asswipe of a president wants to stand there and point fingers at the Democrats, while acting like he has no power to change it. "It's all on the "Democrats", he says. 10 fucking Democrats are keeping it from being changed. Trump and his minions are sticking to that story, claiming they are following a law that's been put in place by the previous administration. Okay, so if that's true, then why is it now we're caging and separating the children from parents? Under the previous administration, a lot of people were kicked out the country, but there was no separating families and caging kids! I call it pure political bullshit. This is definitely on Trump and his goofy ass policy, so he can play the blame game and continue to smear the opposing party. You can't tell me a man (and his joke of a lawyer) who claims to have the power to pardon himself or get away with shooting someone in the middle of the street, can't fix this? This is beyond Party lines. This is cruel and inhumane. It sickens me to see anyone who defends Trumps words over this (and almost anything else he spills from his mouth). I do know that some of the most powerful Republicans are working hard to turn this around. That's a good sign, but for now it's not good enough!! A part of me really feels that before things get better, it has to get worse. I feel we're at our worst. I'm ashamed of what this country has become. I don't recognize what it's become. I know a lot of people like me are on the right side of the fence, but it seems no matter how much we vote, voice our opinions and protest, we're just kicked in the face and told to "shut the hell up, snowflake!". And I'm not naive, a lot of this country came about because of political greed and corruption. But enough is enough!
  21. To be fair, there have been much speculation of a lot of shoots/videos shoots in the past that ended up being MDNA skin related while she's been recording the album. So it's natural for some people to doubt. That said, I'm all up for it being album related. At some point, it's gotta happen, so why not now? I'm excited. I'm ready! Bring on the new album.... okay, I can wait until fall if I must.
  22. True. I don't follow Beyonce', so I really had no idea what was already spilled regarding her new album, so I guess the same could be said of Madonna if she just released an album without a press release (which is what she usually does before releasing an album). And I agree about the first single. I just meant that her singles aren't charting like they used to, so I can see her forgoing the usual roll out for singles anymore. I doubt that she'll do that though.
  23. I have a feeling, she's going to release the album this fall and hold off on touring until later next year after she directs. If you recall, there was some talk that she was looking for dates for France for Sept/Oct. of 2019. So maybe she's planning to tour next fall or late summer. This would give her time to promote the album the rest of the year, then start directing at the start of the new year. A lot of the casting and such can be done prior to her actually directing. She can do much of this before the end of the year. If she spends 4 or 5 months on the film, and then go into tour rehearsals late spring/summer then she will be able to tour late summer/fall. But of course, this all depends on how involved she will be in the editing of the film as well as how big of a tour she's planning to do. Anyway, that's just my two cents about it.
  24. I'm sure it's been discussed already if they are truly shooting an album cover. Madonna and her team may have been texting/emaling ideas back and forth.
  25. What is this from, where? How does this relate to Madonna?
