    Such a beautiful performance.

    Even though I wasn’t personally enthralled with the setlist, she put on one hell of a show that was clearly enjoyed by those in attendance.

    I read through some of the comments in the previous threads and some were shocking and striking in their tone and content. Instead of appreciation, there was condemnation. I remember during the Hard Candy era back in 2008 thinking that she didn’t have ‘much time left’ when it came to her dancing, choreography, and energy. This wasn’t because I doubted Madonna could continue at the pace she was going at, it was simply because of.....her being a human being. We age. We grow old. We lose stamina and flexibility. 

    Yet, she proved us all wrong and went on to do one of the most taxing, physically exhausting, and boldest tours of her entire career with both Stick & Sweet and MDNA. 


    Madonna did. And she continues to do it. Again and again. 

    The notion that she was stiff or slow or whatever else you want to say during the Pride performance is beyond mind boggling. She was fluid. She was beautiful. She was on fire. She gave it her all as a 60 year old woman who has been performing and dancing her entire life and who’s body is naturally slowing down. I can only wish to Vogue into my 60’s and move the way this woman does, and WHEN I tear up a dance floor at 60 years old to Vogue the way I do now, I’ll have Madonna to thank for blazing a trail and breaking down the barriers of age and shattering the limitations of what means to be ‘old’.

    I hope she never stops. Never slows down. I hope she performs at the 75th anniversary of Stonewall at 85 years old and has another generation in the palm of her hands. 

    Nothing to add here. You said it all.

    I don't. She looked unhealthy there thanks to that awful exercise and "diet" programme she was on by that charlatan Tracey Anderson (who also happened to be a thief and embezzler actually).

    I  low key like her Sticky & Sweet tort body saison, particularly Sticky & Sweet 2009.  It was kinda like iron Madonna from the early 90s making a comeback. 

    But ultimately I save my hissy fits for her artistic choices, which as fans, let's face it; we have a bit of veto power on. But her body? Really none of my business, especially when she's turning out perfs like this at 60 years old no less. 

    Madonna has spoiled her fans in ways we haven't come to fully understand yet. Like @MadFan said- these phags were all fine with Madonna entering her 50s and 60s, so long as she stayed Olympian and svelte and relentlessly energetic. Well guess what, Madonna is a human being after all! And she has to do simpler choreo at this stage. She can still dance, it's just not going to be 1990 or 2008 or 2012 again no matter how nostalgic you ppl get for it. Enjoy her while you can. You can't stop the clock, but you can enjoy today.

    Why do you say that? From what I can see, she's one of the only truly progressive candidates.

    I'll just give you a few keywords:

    Voting record in congress
    First democrat to try and make nice with Trump
    Connections to Hindu nationalists
    Poor record on gay rights (and yes her statements and family actions from when she was a young adult can be held against her, especially if we held it against Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, and Barack Obama)

    If you want a real progressive, go with Elizabeth Warren.

    Gabbard is a weak general election candidate and I am really suspicious of the very intense Russian bot activity with regards to her.

    Don't let their misery bring your mood down. And let's face it it's most likely one or two members posting the same shit on every forum they are registered at. They're appalled that she won't do backflips while singing live and being in the same shape she was in 30 years ago. She's either too stiff, too fat, doesn't dance enough , doesn't sing enough, doesn't have stage presence..oh fuck off.

    Some fans are still living in fucking 2005 I swear. Reality doesn't mean much. God only knows what kind of misery they're projecting onto Madonna. 

    For her to be doing this at 60 is mind-blowing. The energy, the confidence, the beauty, the presence. This woman is 1 of a kind. I'm lucky that she's MY gay icon and I'm not stuck watching Lady Gaga over here in Vegas with her gauche nonsense and pretending it's great. Or pretending like Taylor Swift's half-assed and very-sudden gay adoration is quality and sincere. This is MADONNA. The original. Thank god.

    Yeah but fuck it, I won't go into it. All about the positive vibes, thanks guys 🙂

    Oh god :rotfl:She was fucking amazing. Adorable, sassy, lovable, confident and cute as ever. I really don't know how anyone can say this is not a total 180 after the dour and disappointing Eurovision perf.

    Nice to see such positivity here compared to other forums I'm on. Phew.

    I understand people wanting more of the fun hits at Pride, I get it, I do. But M has taken the protest angle of Pride - ie, the meaning of it in the first place - and ran with it. And I for one think it's fabulous. I hope she hones those vocals in time for the tour - I'm sure she will - but it was definitely a trip to hear her do Vogue and not lipsync it. Brilliant stuff. And God Control was great too. 

    How was I Rise? Not seen a clip of that.

    Other Madonna forums you mean?

    What's sad about it is that of all the people who really could/should have 'gotten' what Madonna is trying to do with this video, it would be someone like her (even if the content is too disturbing for her given she's a survivor. Understandable).

    Not to mention Madonna used her voice on an actual song...an actual MADONNA song. Obviously we get the significance of that more than someone of her age, but to at least show a little gratitude... c'mon...

    Not the first time these kids have caused themselves issues with their comments, so to speak. I think they have a ways to go in understanding how to navigate being public figures.

    Yeah I don't typically agree with many of your posts HOWEVER you hit this 1 on the head.

    I empathize a lot with Emma - I mean I myself am traumatized by Pulse, having gone to that nightclub weekend after weekend back when I lived in Florida, and I wasn't even there on that night!  So I can only imagine the horror she and her friends went through. Just so stomach-turning and awful. But THIS...just kind of felt like a knee-jerk comment that she thought would help her cause or her goal, Madonna being the easiest of easy targets. If she is getting dragged (again, I do not read comments), well, maybe she will learn next time that she has a lot of ppl on her side and they're not always going to depict this epidemic with kids gloves. That's not really an American artist's job, tbh. Many gun owners are ignorant of the horrors of mass shootings. God Control throws it right in their face, with Madonna's usual thoughtfulness and power. I'm very proud.

    I feel bad that we are in this position to bash her but she brought it upon herself. She obviously never saw the video.

    Yeah I feel the same way. Emma is a bright young woman and the face of a really important movement here in the USA. But she jumped on Madonna without knowing the facts and now she knows how crazy Stan culture is lol
