    Madame X is such a brilliant album. Thanks to it, I can literally transpose my joyful or sad memories into every song. The melancholy is present in the whole album, which allows us to remember different moments of our life. I think it's a special album. You have to be in a certain mood to be able to listen to it but once you do that, it's amazing!

    👍👍👍 well said.

    Doesn't Beyoncé have 27 Grammys or whatever and another 4 nominations this year?
    What other proof we need that anyone can buy a Grammy? Madonna already said Awards are overrated and she refuses to pay for them.

    yeah, not exactly sure how many grannies beyondsay has... anyways... she can have the world most number of awards if she wants to ..... buy them all... 

  3. The atrocity that True Blue, Who's That Girl, Like A Prayer was over overlooked for the 80s!! That said pretty much... As much as they denied "Take A Bow" for Record and Song of The Year that year, I just want to punch the academy in their face!!! 

    But then, its throughout these snubs year after year that I've now became - the academy can award whoever they see fit with their gold - a meaningless, totally biased award show under the disguise of being a peer voting award show.... yeah, when those peer of yours are all towards teenage music!!! 

    Lady gaga can now get 9 awards throughout her short lifespan of 10 years, shamelessly campaigning for that grammys/oscars.... to me, the once coveted now becomes covered with shit and dust - and this is by no means of sour grapes... just that it made me open my eyes - witnessing the industry manipulating people for these awards or vice versa... there's no merit or validity anymore.... all just goes down the drain....

    What promotional strategy? This is one of her least promoted albums ever

     

    Barely any magazine covers, no interviews for the tour or tour rehearsals, nothing

     

    A dinky 30 minute documentary just tossed , without promo, on Amazon.  She could have done a major two hour documentary film and promoted it's release as well

     

    Rebel Heart had an EXCELLENT promo campaign

     

    Hell even MDNA had a better promo push than MX

     

    I still have yet even really SEEN all those MX personas she was carrying on about

     

    Well you barely do any photo shoots anymore...

     

    For such a so called visual album

     

    A huge fail...

    Without a traditional record company backing her up, veteran artists will never ever have a chance...

    I assume no checks in place for award shows at present. The golden globes are the worst apparently with potential winners turning up at kids parties etc to get the voters on side. Grammies are known to cash cheques and even the Oscars have a history of the odd fix going in although clearly Gaga couldn't pay enough for any acting awards.

    The RIAA is investigating chart fraud and manipulation which probably stems from an investigation by a Norwegian (?) Team who said Kanye's streaming figures were impossible. Basically, streams from other smaller artists appear to have been credited to Drake, Kanye and Beyonce which is theft. 

    I hope some light comes out from it and if the musicians were really guilty for such an under table act, they should be deserving punished for theft and fraud and making the public believed their achievement... in this day and age, I believed anything is possible and hope justice serves its purpose...

    She's up against Beyonce, Toilet and Gags, the three biggest award buyers going 😂

    She won't win a thing. And that's the war we want it as one day, they'll ask be exposed as the frauds they are.

    I recalled I saw an article on Billboard about RIAA called for an investigation about musicians buying their way for airplay or something.... playing under table games to garner hits for themselves... hopefully they will be out for a full investigation for fraud.... don't big organizations have audits? Such as Grammys, the various record companies....

    True, they have become more like the old VMA lately... but sometimes something unespected can happen, think about the last AOTY winner that was still not that big (commercially speaking) or Beck winning five years ago.

    Yes, I'm hopeful but at the same time prepared for disappointment so it's 50-50... that said, winning also means acknowledging Madonna and her team, Mirwais, Mike Dean and her producers, engineers and most importantly,  Martha Graham.... for her inspiration and giving Madame X her name.

    Hoping Madonna wins. If she doesn't, the award has no credibility. :catty:

    The Grammys have lost their credibility long ago.... but for justice's sake, I want Madame X to shine as it is her time!!! But I told myself repeatedly to be ready for the upsets and disappointment more than any surprises, that way, you could maintain some cool (at the very least)...

    Mmmm interesting, that puts in doubt the golderby submissions since they didn’t mentioned this one...

    87 entries, hopefully Madame X gets something 🙂

    Yeah... at least something.... but just be prepared to be disappointed rather than be surprised....

    Btw, I still feel that God Control - the song is more worthy to be submitted for Record of The Year and Song of The Year rather than Crave....
