  1. Why is it so hard for Madonna fans to recognize Janet Jackson in any way, shape, or form? Regardless of your personal opinion she had a huge presence on the radio, Mtv, and in pop culture in general. You ask any r&b star that's currently out there, Beyoncé, Rhianna, Ciara, and they'll say Madonna & Janet were a huge influence on them.

    So, I say Janet. Hands down.

    Donna Sunmer and Grace Jones are iconic as well.

    This!

  2. Sticky & Sweet Tour - Gypsy

    Sticky_Sweet_Tour.jpg

    Why do I love it? Because it shows Madonna as a real woman. Feminine and fragile though strong and sexy at the same time with a touch of latin spirit, what she really is. I love how natural she looks wearing this outfit, her hair wild and free, the colors really compliment her and she looked more beautiful than ever when I saw her live in this outfit. Plus she almost never wears a dress for her tours, so that made this one even more special. This one's nothing like anything else she ever perfomed in. And the accessories are also perfect, the lace gloves, the tigh boots and the little hat she put on for La Isla Bonita and the fringe jacket for You Must Love Me. Not to mention the long black gown which was covering this dress first and when she took it off you could see it was pink inside and it fall off her and revealed this tiny colorful sexy dress. It was so symbolic and spot-on for the theme of that se

    Confessions Tour - Equestrian

    Why Do I Love It? Because it showed Madonna as the strong dominant figure. The leash and the leather stick really show that side of her as the strong dominant leader, yet feminine and sexy and I really liked that. It was a really great choice to use for the opening segment of the concert. The horse them and all the dancers wearing S&M gear really managed to make this outfit a very sexy yet powerful outfit and I felt it really managed to capture the whole "Confessions" essence.

    Drowned World Tour - NeoPunk

    IMG_0355.jpg

    Why do I love it? Because it's FIERCE. Madonna was 43 at the time of this tour and she could pull off the rock chick image so perfectly and made it work. It almost never looked the same in two concerts, they used different tops, kilts and accessories, using flags as kilt on some concerts, but the general look was always the same (my personal favorite is the stripped one shown on the picture above. if she had only kept that same outfit and hair do for the DVD),. I love Gaultier's special touches on this, the torn plaid skirts, and I love Madonna and him got the idea of using kilts on this tour from Gaultier's personal style. It works for her too. This was a fashion statement in 2001 and had so much influence on everyday fashion.

    The Girlie Show - My Fair Lady on LSD

    gis66.jpg

    You know an outfit is something special when it was designed for only one perfomance and it's the most astonishing one of the entire show. I adore this one so much and I could write essays only about this outfit. It was used for her most scandalous song ever, at her most scandalous tour, which was the high point of her Erotica era, so of course most people would have expected an orgy on stage when she performs Justify My Love on this tour. But instead of that Madonna was inspired by probably the most sophisticated social event imaginable, the Ascot Race which is nothing short of brilliant To see where this is coming from (My Fair Lady).

    MDNA - Masculine/Femenine

    madonna_mdna_tour_vogue_performance_181b

    I'm sure this relatively new costume has easily become a fan-favorite. A new skeletal, re-invention of the original cone bra, managed to add the right amount of femininity to Madonna's androgynous outfit (hence the act's name). It also managed to bring 'Vogue' back to its roots: Glam, fashion & camp. It was also used as a gender-playing game: Madonna plays with the male & female stereotypes again. Like herself, many of the girls wear parts of a men's suit, often a vest over sexy female legs. The man, on the other side, wear dresses, feather hats and high heels.

    Re-Invention - French Baroque

    2552251161_14f9ae12d2_o.jpg

    Why do I love it? (LOL How can I NOT love it?!) Because it's a Queen's outfit and it is beautiful in every detail. This time Madonna herself was the inpiration and Lacroix managed to make the baroque inspiration work in such a unique and fresh way which fitted her so well. Madonna wasn't Marie Antoinette this time but she looked definitely royal in her own sexy way. I love the bow in her hair, the shoulder pad, and the arm band. Personally I love the blue corset more than the gold one. She looked like a Queen wearing it.

    BAT - Metropolis

    Madonna-Blond-Ambition-Tour.jpg

    I couldn't really decide between this and the gold corset used on LAV, but I finally went with this one. Why do I love it? Because this one's a legend. This outfit IS Madonna. This is the outfit which made me a Gaultier fan for life like he's my number one designer for ever, because anyone who could think of something like that is a genius This corset is the perfect embodiment of the feminine strength and is sexy and stunning and Madonna is wearing it in such an admirable way. It was definitely designed for her. Gaultier's been making coned bras and corsets for years now, but they look most perfect on Madonna because there's no living soul on this planet who can wear them this well and making them hers. I have an obsession for this outfit, for this performance and for this tour and what only makes it more perfect in my eyes it's the curls (i know the look with the ponytail is iconic but I just love how she looked with the curls). Really lost its essence when she put on the colorful biker jacket for 'Causing a Commotion' and 'Where's the Party' but still I'm crazy about it, it makes this look whole which is my favorite Madonna look ever. This corset is a signature outfit for both Madonna and Gaultier, that's why it ended up number one on my list.
    Also, honorable mentions:
    • BAT - Like a Virgin corset
    • MDNA Prophecy black leather dress (sleeveless with the fur shoulders)
    • MDNA - Transgression outfit
    • DWT - Geisha outfit
    • Virgin Tour - Everything LOL! the entire wardrobe for this tour just screamed made in the 80s! how can you not love it!
    • WTG - Flamenco Dress
    • Girlie Show - Disco costume (So much fun plus, she managed to make it NOT look like a costume)
    Also for fun I decided to include my least favorite/worst;
    RIT - Circus
    madonna1.jpg
    Too Vegas kitschy and too Janet Jackson for my taste (Actually, aside from the opening corset, the entire RIT wardrobe was pretty kitsch, costume-y and basic)
    S&S - Rave
    Mad-foto1.jpg
    The sparkly pads thing look like some shit Kylie would wear.
    WTG - DYP/MG
    240x360_1983.jpg
    No. Just... No.
    I was gonna add the DWT Cowgirl outfit (again looked like a costume) but she managed to make it look bad ass when she removed the jacket to reveal the USA print shirt underneath.
    Other dishonorable mentions
    • MDNA - Majorette
    • S&S - Old School
    • WTG - Blue dress worn for True Blue
    • RIT - Soldier and Scottish outfits.
    Can't wait to see RH costumes
  3. I know setlist forums have been going on forever, but I wanted to share what I found. This is the setlist that's making its way around Twitter and other Madonna related websites/forums. Allegedly is the closest to the official tour setlist. What do you think?

    - Holiday

    What do you think?

  4. Also I hope that (if these rumors are true) those dates are not all on Mexico City but on other places such as Guadalajara and Monterrey as well.

    so she will perform at Auditorio nacional ,

    11 dates , yass

    how many consecutive times Fey crowed that place

    lol

    Madonna will break another record , for sure she will be the international female with more crowed consecutive shows at auditorio nacional

    Naaah Auditorio is way too small, even for a 'smaller scale' tour. Mexico City arena is owned by superboletos not Ocesa so you can rule that one out and as she doesn't seem to want to do stadiums this time, Foro Sol is out of the picture as well; Palacio de los Deportes seems the safest bet (again if true)
  5. Literally praying this is true:

    11811471_947606991962203_161580198905796

    Apparently Live Nation has booked at least 11 RHT dates for Mexico in summer 16, also due to the whole dollar-peso thing, they're hoping bringing her to Mexico would be relatively cheaper and not as expensive. I also read in another paper that were this true, Mexico would be the only south American stop of RHT.

  6. BIM is the most embarrasing thing she's ever done

    RoL (the song) is shit

    WTG and S&S are the two worst Madonna tours

    Hard Candy is also shit

    MDNA is underrated

    Girlie Show and MDNA versions of Like a Virgin are shit

  7. This reeks!! Rebel Heart (the track) is a great song! Some of the best lyrics on the album! It should definitely be released as the fourth official single! But judging by things (Not included in the standard edition basically a bonus track on the deluxe, it was one of the leaked tracks) I don't think we'll get RH as a single :sad::sad: This would mark the 1st time she doesn't release an album's title-track as single.
