    vanity fair italia interview

     

     

    There was magic during this interview. The ending was very moving and you could tell that she was moved by how sincere and heartfelt his words were. She must have enjoyed this conversation. The interesting thing to me is that at the beginning she told him that he would have to talk her out of wearing sunglasses, but in the end she decided to take them out because he surprised her with one of the best questions ever, at least during this press junket. It was very touching when she took her sunglasses out. You could see something special in her eyes. She is such an amazing woman! Words cannot express how much she is! I loved the interview and I appreciated his kindness, his intelligence and how respectful he was towards her. Bravo!

    Can you all think of another artist who so seamlessly checks all the boxes that her fans want from her (dance, ballads, midtempos, experimental, sunny bops), while also providing bold new sounds that she has never done before?  She remains classic and modern, nostalgic and forward looking, and does everything we could possibly want, as well as what we didn’t even know we wanted.  

    She's the one and only! :bow:

    Preach! 

    And Madonna's release of the I Rise beautiful video together with Time shows that PRIDE for her is the way to remember Stonewall. To remember Marsha, Sylvia Rivera, all those people who have fought and died all these years.

    I'm doing a very long article on LGTB rights in Aragon (the part where I live in Spain) these past 40 years, since the end of the dictatorship and today I had a meeting with a 68 year-old woman who fell in love with another woman in the early 80s and asked for a divorce and the judge took away the children from her. She told me: "the judge considered that I was not capable of rising my children. But I didn't do a step back. I rised my voice in the court and told them that I was not ashamed of loving and that if any law considered LOVE a  problem, then the law was the issue to change". I was out of words while I was writing down those lines. 

    Those people out there fought, sometimes died. Madonna will sing I Rise to them and to all. I wish I was there in New York to sing along to her and feel that energy. I sincerely hope that at least a bunch of people there in Pride watching Madonna understand that our rights are still too fresh and that they can take them away from us again. 

    Thank you for sharing this story with all of us! It’s very moving and I can only try to imagine what it must have been like for that woman. 

    I too wish I was in New York on Pride Island to applaude her for singing I Rise and for once again walking the less beaten path and for deciding to go beyond the surface and aiming straight to the very heart of the matter.

    50 years of Stonewall. It would have been the perfect moment to remember the fight of the past, to enjoy the achievements and to reflect on the challenges of the present. And maybe to remember that Pride used to be a politcal demonstration. Today the overwhelming majority of gays merely see it as another chance to get drunk, to get drugged up, to fuck around like there is no tomorrow. Of couse only, if you are a young, good looking or at least well hung guy. But of course, the gay community is such an inclusive one, where everyone finds his/her place. What a fucking lie, what fucking hypocrisy, what fucking superficiality. This community needs a wake up call. The whole situation of "let's have a party", reminds me of this scene in "A normal heart" where people were still arguing that they will not stop fucking around because they have somehow earned that right when they are confronted with the fact that this "gay cancer" is most likely transferred by having sex. Ignorance is a bliss they say. NO, it's not. And the fact that 50 years of Stonewall seems to be just another chance to have mindless fun is frustrating. Just as frustrating as the reaction Madonna received during her GLAAD speech when she mentioned 50 years of Stonewall and its importance and there was a deafening silence in the room full of supposedly educated people or activists. Confused about it, she abruptly changed the topic and started talking about herself "hhm kay, her comes the me part".

    This community is its worst enemy. How can you expect people outside of the community to stand up for you, if you don't even do it for yourself. If there should come a time when LGBTQ rights will be dismantled, this community is the only one to blame. The question is: will this community fight then or will they party on and play the victim because it's so en vogue?

    End of rant. 

     

    Thank you so much for this! This is how things are and finally someone has the courage to say it. ❤️

    Won't this be a record for videos in any Madonna era too? 7?

    Medellin

    Crave

    Dark Ballet

    I Rise

    God Control

    Batuka

    And possibly Faz Gostoso, she's giving us everything we want and more!

    She is and it’s amazing! Thank you, Madame X!

    Madame X is my favourite Madonna era ever. I have never in my life felt so proud. I am so worried and depressed sometimes because of personal issue and this video and song is so inspiring. I found myself humming to the ending of the chorus many days this past week and everytime I feel some warmth inside. Now I love the song even more! 

    😘❤️

    And do you and the rest of the moaners? 

    I am DISGUSTED at this thread. If anybody in his/her right mind would think of booing Madonna I hope that person gets a big fat slap on the face for insulting a woman that has BUILT part of our culture and has helped us so much when we were suffering bullying at school and our families wouldn't understand us. 

    That woman, Madonna, should go there and has the ovation of her life no matter what she performs. And if she wants to go and give a 20 minute speech, we clap because her message is what helped us so much. Her message, not Rescue Me or Hung Up. Not even Vogue. Her message that we should be proud of being ourselves.

    She chose to give a performance through message just like she decided that Madame X wouldn't be a collection of God Control bridges and I Don't Search I find, but a Dark Ballet bullet to our brains. 

    What's next? If she doesn't dress properly we boo her? If she decides in her tour to give an all accoustic session simmilar to TOAC she should retire? Yes, because I've read that very sentence in this thread "if she's not into the pop star thing anymore she should stop performing". You know who who are. She'll do whatever she wants and those who don't understand her can take the door and leave. Just like those wannabes left her when she did Erotica.  Just like after American Life some absurdas became Kylie fans. Just like Ray of Lighters hate her albums ever since and just lime Confessioners became Gaga stans. 

    She doesn't care a bit and I have the feeling that the character assesination is this time for real. That she's frankly tired of the moaners and doesn't care if you all decide to boycott her. 

    And yes, NOW I FEEL BETTER NOW. 

    Bye, bunch of bitter Felicias. 

    AMEN! Thank God for people like you! :clap:

    If she was to sing Express Yourself I can guarantee half of her contrarian fans would complain she was lazy in revisiting an old chestnut. If she did Deeper and Deeper, it would be that her voice sounds bad, and how does the song reflect anything Pride-related? If she sang Live To Tell, the porta potties would be overflowing. Im sure you meant no offense, but I’ll interject that I don’t need to ask you what is a sore subject for American gays. I am one. None of us gets to speak on behalf of a majority. But I feel this conversation isn’t evolutionary. It’s torally tribal, and I guess that’s the problem. Madonna just can’t please every faction of her fanbase, casual and fervent, the GP, the haters, the ignorant and the cynical. It’s impossible. 

    +1

  9. Just let her do what she wants! Some people will like it, some won't.

    To have her perform in that place and on that day and during this very year is already an expression of love and it is an act of support, if there ever was a need for further demonstrations of how much she cares for the LGBTQ+ community.

    It's not only about the songs. It's not only about more or less dancing.

    There's a lot more than that and people could take a moment to reflect on what it means for an entire community to have been fighting and working and advocating for 50 years. M has certainly been a part of that community. For her to be there on the 50th anniversary means a lot.

    OMG! I am SHOOK.

    It's all very smart and meta isn't it? She'll be dancing to her own song about gun control and then (probably) get shot.

    Why shouldn't she reference Pulse? This is coming out at Pride. 50 people in a gay club were shot to death and America has done FUCK ALL about it. Needless to mention all the other daily mass shootings. No pussyfooting around here.

    Idolator 4.5/5

    Album review - Madonna's Madame X pushes the boundaries of Pop!

    https://www.idolator.com/7803119/album-review-madonna-madame-x?view-all&chrome=1

    In many ways, Madame X is Madonna’s most personal album to date. She’s speaking her truth, while revealing more of herself than ever. It might not be the collection of bangers you want, but it’s what we, as a society, need. The fact that she can stoke the flames of rebellion in a way that is original, vulnerable and inclusive (in the truest sense of the word) is a pop miracle. But, then again, Madonna has been rewriting the rule book since 1982. And she isn’t going to stop any time soon.

    Score: 4.5/5

    side note: typo bc the author states Rebel Heart opened w/ Looking for Love but otherwise good article, great score!

    Amazing! It's so refreshing to read words like these! When they do get her, it really shows and it makes all the difference! :clap:

    The onslaught of outrage will come and she knows it. I support her 100%. She's an incredible artist and role model. 

    THIS!

    ....oh to think that she has been sitting on this for three and a half months and all people involved have kept the secret in such a tight way! Amazing!
