  1. Same, I draw a hard line on someone suppressing our rights to live. His looks are a dime a dozen and there are plenty of hot gay activists out there.
  2. I still don’t hear an apology from him for his years of his disgraceful voting record on several discriminatory LGBTQ issues, not to mention his suspected misuse of taxpayer funds. But I guess those Equinox memberships don’t pay for themselves. He’s about as welcome into the community as Kaitlyn Jenner. NO THANKS BITCH!

  4. And Madonna claims she doesn’t watch TV.
  5. It’s been years since she’s given us such back-to-back Madonna-caliber, high quality videos that it’s hard to pick, probably since the Music era. But I picked Medellín. Batuka would be a close second.
  6. Not sure if it was posted on this forum but has there been a full credits list for the track listing? It’s not in Madonna.com and it’s kind of frustrating. I’m curious to know the credited musicians and singers in an official centralized format.
  7. I wish this had been an hour long. The footage was certainly worthy of it. But at least Monet X Change got another 2 seconds of footage, lol!
  8. Hell yes! It was about time she got her own channel (it albeit for a limited time) on Sirius. If The Beatles and Bruce Speingstreen’s E Street Band can get a channel, then so should Madame X’s Legendary career! This will make driving more fun!
  9. I would have loved it if they had a Madame X tee shirt with the original standard edition cover (minus the hideous Times New Roman font). I’d totally buy that.
  10. And yet still classier than that vile trash box, Nicki Minaj and her useless contributions. At least this is a collab I can get behind (well maybe not so much in the vicinity behind Anitta, according to the video). But this song is on fire and they surprisingly compliment each other well.

  12. For what it’s worth I recall a passage from the authorized biography that Elon Musk agreed to several years ago, “Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future.” The author, Ashley Vance, mentioned that he wanted to read the final manuscript before it was published. Professionally she didn’t feel right about it as it would create some ethical concerns, and that his version of the truth was not always the version of the truth the world shares. He eventually agreed to those terms. And it is a very good book, highlighting his genius while not ignoring his human flaws. He should be so lucky the book was written then, since he’s become more of a problematic figure in recent years. It’s ultimately Vanessa Grigoriadis’ final say as the journalist on the narrative she chose, which in her eyes is mostly celebrating Madonna’s strength & legacy while not ignoring her flaws, which have been constantly discussed on these forums because they’re pretty hard to ignore at this point. Madonna has a right to disagree with this narrative, and somewhere the truth probably lies in the middle between both of them. I just strongly disagree with Madonna’s overreaction, as this wasn’t a Daily Mail exposé piece.
  13. We’ll never really know what the terms were agreed upon in the article. And yes it did lack a more linear, consistent dialogue with Madonna. It’s just the social media optics never look good when she comes for the journalist with rather incendiary language, and she’s well aware of that. There’s a fine balance of bucking the trend while using conventional wisdom to critique others. But then Madonna was never really known for subtly I suppose (shrugs). Madonna is the new Joni Mitchell. Cantankerous and ornery as ever.
  14. I honestly didn’t think the article presented her in a negative way, it was more a collection of the paradoxical nature of Madonna’s actions vs what she says and how that’s changed over time (which she even said regarding “her truth”), which made sense. But overall it was a positive article. Madonna being critical of it is one thing. Her overreaction to it sounds excessive and makes her come across as a bit of a lunatic, with the whole patriarchy bit in the end. It just doesn’t help her case. Disappointing all around.
  15. Just saw it and it wasn’t terrible as it sounded, but it was very flat and uneventful considering how slick it looked. “Future” really doesn’t work on any level for me, and this performance of an album track kind of proved it. I wonder if she has set these unrealistic expectations on herself over the last several years that the Average Joe demands to see a glossy high production from her on every single performance. Because that’s just saying herself up for failure. And she’s delivered killer performances before without needing the additional theatrics (Live 8 & Live Earth, Express Yourself VMAs). Perhaps she would have been better off toning down the theatrics considerably, stood there and given richer, energetic vocals than the shaky ones tonight. An understatedly heartfelt, strong vocal performance (no auto tune) with the right song choices for a Eurovision audience would have won her some goodwill. But whatever it’s not the end of the world.

  17. Jezebel and anything that came from Gawker Media, apart from Gizmodo, is garbage. I wouldn’t bother.
  18. Not sure if this was mentioned, but in some of the scenes with the graffiti walls is anyone else getting Borderline video throwback vibes?
  19. To further back @Kim this was actually written about in a book a number of years ago: https://books.google.com/books/about/Hello_Goodbye_Hello.html?id=jVZoAAAAQBAJ
  20. Eh, if she takes the contrarian route (because 'Bitch she's Madonna' ), then she will be her own saboteur and further cement the image that she's out of touch. And honestly, no one will pay much attention no matter how bad (or internet-breaking) the publicity will be for a limited time. I think it's unlikely she'll do that this time, but who knows. Anyway I think the article was mostly spot-on and it was a nice write-up of why her pop work through 2005 is untouchable, and why they want her to win. It's all up to her.
  21. Actually Hillary did bring up protecting same-sex marriage rights and the rights of the LGBTQ community as a reason to elect the right Supreme Court justice.
