THE MATERIAL GIRL (MATERIAL WOMAN?)

One more batch of reader e-mails about Madonna and her new album, "MDNA," continuing a spirited discussion started by Chart Beat reader Gus Tornatore of Glen Head, New York, who offered a mixed review of the set three weeks ago.

Up first, two opposing views regarding Madonna's age.

******

Hi Gary!

I think on the topic currently under discussion, most opinions I've read so far in these "Ask Billboard" columns reveal a denial about one thing. My problem is not about Madonna being a 53-year-old woman. The problem is that a 53-year-old woman depicts herself as a "girl" in the lyrics of the songs so far promoted as singles.

Just imagine how weird that is for younger people listening to those lyrics! Even if the tunes are catchy, youngsters and older people alike simply cannot identify themselves with these songs for the above-mentioned reason. Only die-hard Madonna fans with a bit of a Peter Pan complex eventually could.

The only way these songs would work (maybe) is in video through a cartoon character depicting a younger Madonna. I like Madonna, but I think at this point in her career she would be a little more careful about crafting appropriate song lyrics.

And, for the record, I firmly believe that age is not a definitive limitation. Cher was also 53 when she scored the biggest hit of her career. Check out the lyrics of "Believe" and, considering its universal appeal, you'll probably understand what I mean about Madonna's lyrics.

All the best!

Hi Gary,

Madonna, and most of her fans, long ago stopped being surprised at the "not-good-enough" reaction that the world always seems to have about her new releases. In a world where the cultural norm is to build someone up and then delight in their inevitable fall, it must be unbearable to those who relish celebrity failures that Madonna remains successful 30 years on.

What's absolutely ridiculous, however, is to read the reviews of "MDNA" that say Madonna is "too old" to make this type of music, or worse: that she's no longer leading the charge with new sounds and styles and that she has instead succumbed to following trends rather than setting them. Madonna has spent 30 years tirelessly and joyfully pushing underground dance music to the forefront of the pop music scene so that everyone can enjoy it. Now that it's unquestionably all the rage, she's being told she should move on to something else rather than enjoy the fruits of her considerable labors? Is she supposed to put out a heavy metal album?

What they're really peeved at is that Madonna continues to make fresh new music while still remaining firmly atop the heap rather than being consigned to releasing albums of covers or standards like other artists her age. Madonna has had at least one No. 1 Dance/Club Play Songs hit in 25 of the past 30 years. And, she has had at least two No. 1s in 14 of those 30 years (hello, 2012!) Let's be clear, with 42 No. 1s (and counting), Madonna is the once and future queen of dance music and the club scene and is never going away. Telling her to move on is akin to asking why Steven Spielberg is still directing blockbuster movies after all these years instead of trying something new.

Amid a pop music landscape that has seen the untimely and unfortunate end of both Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston, I am baffled that rather than a resounding, "thank goodness we've still got Madonna," we're getting, "eh, she's still doing this?" But, as her detractors often forget, Madonna doesn't really care whether you like her or not ... as long as you keep talking about her.

Ultimately, she still comes out right where she wants to be, and where she belongs: on top.

Chad Kennedy

New York, New York

*****

Hi Fernando and Chad,

I can see both sides. Ultimately, however, I think that pop music is largely its own universe where age is secondary to songs themselves. The Backstreet Boys are still Boys and New Kids on the Block are still Kids. The latter group did grow up to be NKOTB but ultimately regressed to being "kids" again, realizing that their fans - who've grown up with them - don't seem to mind. If anything, we feel younger buying into the image that our favorite acts haven't aged. If they haven't, neither have we.

Overall, Madonna's music has become a brand: uptempo pop/dance accompanied by youthful lyrics (generally about dance itself). It's worked very well for Madonna, so she's not looking to fix what clearly isn't broken. Of course we all know that Madonna isn't in her early 20s anymore, but it's comforting to suspend belief and hear her let loose as a girl gone wild, isn't it? I suppose it all depends on how much poetic license you're willing to give an artist.

I'm pretty sure, after all, that Eric Clapton never shot a sheriff, Kelly Clarkson's life wouldn't suck without me or that Justin Bieber doesn't want to be every girl's boyfriend (not when Selena Gomez loves him like a love song).

What's also worth remembering is that while "MDNA" singles "Give Me All Your Luvin' " and "Girl Gone Wild" depict Madonna as the evergreen vogue-ing clubgoer that's become her trademark, other tracks on the album reveal the surely more real-life 53-year-old Madonna. "I F***ed Up," especially, appears to recount the breakup of her marriage to Guy Ritchie and features a lyric that the 1983 Madonna likely wouldn't have written: "You want to know how to make God laugh? Tell him your plans."

Music is show business and Madonna has never shown stage fright in releasing commercial singles, some higher in shock value than others, while still writing songs that present a more personal side. Three decades in with Madonna still topping the Billboard 200, most fans seem just fine with that path her career continues to take.

The Material Girl is likely to stay a "girl" a little while longer.

Mariah sponsored Roger Friedman's site, and yet @forbes still doesn't realize the cheap & gossip-oriented journalism? http://forum.dvdtalk.com/music-talk/506724-roger-friedman-fox-news-mariah-careys-manager-give-madonna-negative-spin.html

thought it was important for fans here to know why Roger Friedman from Fox News bashes Madonna so much (as well as Tommy Mottola). Apparently, his personal email account has been hacked and this is going around different record companies. I thought it was BS at first, but the personal email accounts are real and the dates seem real, although I didn’t have a lot of time to check everything. Here are some of the juicy details:

Did you notice how Vadge—that’s the name they call her now on the Velvet Rope—left the show early. I don’t know one person who cared about her performance except the f****g ancient Kurt Loder. I saw him backstage but nobody seemed to be talking to him.

I wasn’t there— and wouldn’t go there if you paid me to —but had a lot to say about it, including the fact—well maybe not— that she was booed off stage. Someone from Warner Bros. called me about it this morning and was really pissed. I was laughing my ass off!

I’m going to do a “review” of Madonna’s concert this week at MSG. Madonna’s sheeple refused to give me free tickets last time she toured, so I paid for the tickets myself just so I could trash the show. I think I can get in this time for free though. Be sure to read the details in my column this week.

Benny-

I didn’t attend the show but did a little negative vibe type thingy in my column this morning. However, I have to be honest with you regarding something I’m very upset about: Somehow, our conversation about my upcoming review got into the media. There was a Chicago radio station—B96 I think—that gossiped how Mariah was upset about her poor ticket sales and hired a gossip columnist to plant in a negative piece about Madonna’s tour. This was last week—before my column even appeared. Dan called me about it this morning and I cooled things down. I’ve received several emails about this as well.

Benny, it is very important that our conversations stay between us. I’m not accusing you of telling anybody or doing anything, but stuff like this can get me in a lot of trouble. You know that I love working with both you and Mariah, but I love my job more than anything.

Because of the suspicion, I cannot do a review of Mariah’s concert dates. I will be more than happy to attend and party with you two, but my discussion of her tour will be very minimal. I hope you understand.

Rog:

we are getting ready to announce Mariah’s tour dates. they will probably be announced on may 15 (but mariah wants to do it the day after vadge’s tour kicks off).

anyhow, i’m hoping you can go the opening night in miami – August 5 at the American Arlines Arena and possibly review it in your monday morning’s column. if not, she will be playing aug 23 at the garden – but we expect ticket sales to sell really well and have booked aug 24 as well. Tell me which date or dates you want to attend.

Benny—

I’ll let you know in a couple of weeks. I’ll attend one of the dates for sure. Speaking of concerts, did you check out my review of Madonna at Coachella this morning? I wasn’t there— and wouldn’t go there if you paid me to —but had a lot to say about it, including the fact—well maybe not— that she was booed off stage. Someone from Warner Bros. called me about it this morning and was really pissed. I was laughing my ass off!

I am going to try to make Mariah’s opening in Miami. Even if I can’t, just tell me what’s in the show and I’ll write a review of it the next day. But I’m going to try my best. I will definitely be there for all her MSG dates.

I’m going to do a “review” of Madonna’s concert this week at MSG. Madonna’s sheeple refused to give me free tickets last time she toured, so I paid for the tickets myself just so I could trash the show. I think I can get in this time for free though. Be sure to read the details in my column this week.

Benny-

I didn’t attend the show but did a little negative vibe type thingy in my column this morning. However, I have to be honest with you regarding something I’m very upset about: Somehow, our conversation about my upcoming review got into the media. There was a Chicago radio station—B96 I think—that gossiped how Mariah was upset about her poor ticket sales and hired a gossip columnist to plant in a negative piece about Madonna’s tour. This was last week—before my column even appeared. Dan called me about it this morning and I cooled things down. I’ve received several emails about this as well.

Benny, it is very important that our conversations stay between us. I’m not accusing you of telling anybody or doing anything, but stuff like this can get me in a lot of trouble. You know that I love working with both you and Mariah, but I love my job more than anything.

Because of the suspicion, I cannot do a review of Mariah’s concert dates. I will be more than happy to attend and party with you two, but my discussion of her tour will be very minimal. I hope you understand.

We definitely need to talk. I’m going to give you a call in about 15 minuts.

I understand your positon on this but have to stress that I did NOT say anything to anybody. I agree that it would look bad if you do a review but don’t worry. I talked to Helen at MSNBC -she is going to do an article around the time the tour kicks off.

I can't believe how sick these individuals are. Just trying to trash M at one of her most artistically, commercially and critically fruitful moments in her career, as 2006 was, is in itself pathetic and an evident sign of dumbness :lmao:

New Madonna Promo Interviews on French Radio NRJ

UPDATE

NRJ made a last-minute decision and they’ve decided to broadcast the full interview on Thursday May 31st from 20h to 21h.

—-----------------------------------------

Madonna has recently called French radio NRJ for a telephone interview that will be broadcasted in two 10-minute segments for different promo events.

NRJ Radio will broadcast the first part this Wednesday to promote the release of Madonna’s latest film W.E. in France.

Listeners will have to wait until May 30th, the day before the opening of the MDNA Tour, for the second half, in which Madonna will be talking about the MDNA album and the MDNA Tour.

Finally, starting May 31st, NRJ launches a huge contest in France that will continue throughout June where MDNA Tour tickets for the European dates will be up for grabs!

Madonna's 2012 Income: Pop Star's Empire Poised To Earn $500 Million

Posted: 05/10/2012 6:15 pm

Madonna isn't called a "Material Girl" for nothing. Here's a breakdown of what she's poised to pocket in 2012 -- it could be as much as $500 million in one year alone.

- $300 million from her MDNA World Tour. Live Nation announced $240 Million in ticket sales before a South American leg was added, which could earn an additional $40 million-plus. An Australian leg of the tour is being announced shortly.

- Industry insiders say $75 million in tour merchandise sales is not unlikely. This has always been a huge moneymaker for Madonna, who will have an even bigger spread of merchandise available at her upcoming shows.

- $60 million is expected in sales for her new perfume, Truth or Dare, according to Women's Wear Daily.

- Insiders report that Madonna made $10 million from her recent deal with Smirnoff. The company has been hyping her tour with TV spots and has just released a special "Madonna" edition bottle of their vodka.

- The Queen of Pop is hoping to rake in $10 million in TV and DVD worldwide rights for the broadcast of her upcoming tour.

- Retail experts say Madonna will earn $5 million in 2012 from her "Material Girl" clothing line and upcoming Macy's lingerie line.

It's good to be Queen!

:chuckle::thumbsup:

oooohhh MDNA only sold 100k copies in the UK so far. It's at 40 in the midweeks chart oooohh she's sealing the end of her career oooooohhhhh boooh :jerkoff:

Where 100k copies of MDNA = $1m for Madonna (vs $500m)

And anyway as if the younger acts were selling better than she is, all the whining in that thread is just ridiculous and pointless. MDNA top 10 best-selling record year-end worldwide, after 30 years (and no promo) :thumbsup:

Firstly, there's been a fair amount of promo stateside with interviews, twitter, Facebook etc so the general no promo thing is bull. The promo just didn't travel.

The point of the UK chart thread is that simple things could have been done by the record company to make it the album a much bigger hit and that's where we like to discuss it.

Why have you got such a big problem with that? If you don't like it, just go to another thread and talk about her dresses.

I have no problem with you being disappointed by the lack of album promotion internationally (or in general anyway) and no problem at all with people desperate because MDNA only sold 90k so far in the UK, but you must admit that articles and datas of the kind Groovy posted from the Huffington Post make those who are questioning whether Madonna is out of touch with reality seem to be the ones out of touch with reality.

Not sure if this has been talked about, but does anyone remember after Give Me All Your Luvin' demo leaked, there was talk about a song titled Bang Bang? People assumed it was a working title for Gang Bang, but it's an entirely different song. Not a demo, it was finished. But it became the base for Gang Bang:

'Bang Bang' is not a demo of Gang Bang by any means.

The bat out of hell, fish out of water lyric is there, but thats it. Two totally different songs.

it is okay but compared to gang bang its terrible. it sounds totally like a martin solveig production and the lyrics were already posted and shared. Think 'Revolver' with a Solveig sound. Again, think Dragonette/Martin Solveig. That's how it sounds. Nothing like the version we got on MDNA. Her vocals are identical to the awful ones on, 'Revolver'

Bang Bang turned into Gang Bang. Several of the same lyrics. Obvious. Finished song for sure, but still morphed into Gang Bang.

Again, it is not a demo of, 'Gang Bang', but a finished song which morphed into another song using several of the lyrics, 'Gang Bang'.

Just thought i'd share.

That's my point. I think they just randomly picked cds out of a hat and placed them on shelves. It's quite funny.
