" In Honor of Pride, all of Madonna’s proceeds will go to The Trevor Project, the world’s largest suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization for LGBTQ youth. "
This is hideous.

This performance (watching the original) gets better with every view. I'm not even fully on board with all of the songs she's released from the album so far, but I think the Eurovision performance is gorgeous.
She's so beautiful.

Btw whatrecords.co.uk have got the deluxe box set down to £49.99 and the black vinyl down to £24.99.
I've bought from there before and they are really good and package their records well.
Do something else. Do my eyebrows.

I was really eager to watch Madonna's performance at the Eurovision Contest, the reason is twofold, first of all she's Madonna, secondly because of the controversy and debate with regards to the opportunity of choosing to perform in Israel. Several high profile music figures had urged her not to perform there. Namely Pink Floyd's Roger Waters and producer Brian Eno
While most chose to focus on the pitchiness of her vocals during the first of two songs she performed, 1989's Like A Prayer (never mind that one: Madonna sang live and two: she was doing so while coming down a staircase in such an elaborate scenography), the beauty of her message, the centrepiece of her participation at this event, has been completely lost on those who are criticizing her so harshly, either for her pitchiness or her choice to not boycott the event in the first place, some people even going as far as calling her a prostitute
The image that stuck out the most is the all consuming, all destroying fire and the second song refrain of "not everyone is coming to the future", if we don't "wake up" there will be nothing left to wake up to. Similarly a statue of liberty deprived of its torch has been shown in the accompanying backdrop video, that very light and torch which are a symbol of freedom
This is what everyone should be focusing on and be strongly alerted by. As usual Madonna who is Madonna not for nothing captured the essence and urgency of the issue like nobody else would or could
Thank you. This is perfect.
Seriously, I don't think it has to do with a lack of training or loss of vocal control. It could be any number of things, but I'm sure she'll knock us out with her live voice at some point during this era.
It just didn't happen for her at Eurovision.

I’ve been so disappointed over this that I’ve completely avoided the forum and completely avoided commenting. There were some great moments, some amazing choreography and staging but her vocals were awful. Even during Future you can hear the auto tune struggling with the bum notes (btw was that auto tune or vocoder during Future?). I’m surprised no one has mentioned that during LAP it was sung a lot quicker during this version than what she is used to which fucked up her breathing and therefore she couldn’t hold any notes or find her pitch. Anyone blaming monitors or heavy costumes is totally deluded and obviously just making excuses. She’s obviously surrounded by yes men and has slacked off with her vocal training which is a shame for a professional singer. The muscles that enable you to sing are just like any other muscles in the body, if you don’t use it - you lose it.
" If you don't make the choice
And you don't use your voice
Auto-Tune will sing for you instead... (ye-eaaaah...) "

I adore Kupono.
I JUDGE NOT! I just wish they could somehow package the coloured vinyl externally so it can be seen without breaking the seal.
It seems especially silly to buy a bunch of specially coloured vinyl pressings and then leave them sealed, never to be seen.

I feel like she been going overboard with her styling lately. The grill, the eye patch, the armor, etc.

I think the vocal coach is primarily judging the voice and is not trying to throw singers under the bus.
She's also using it as a business opportunity and has links to hire her as a vocal coach/mentor listed prominently on each video.
Here's a ROUGH example of in-ear monitors gone awry. Live on the Today show, Debbie Harry sang the first few lines of this song in a completely different key than the rest of the music.
(starts @ 2:02)
The performance was visually arresting and beautiful. I didn't mind the flat notes on "Prayer", and though it's her/her team's prerogative to enhance the vocals for the official upload, I find it unnecessary.
As they did smooth out her vocals, it would probably be in her best interest to acknowledge what was likely an issue with her in-ear feed anyway... but Madonna's always been a uniquely unapologetic, flaws-and-all behemoth. No need to change that now or ever.

Don't get me wrong, I really like the woman, she is lovely and I subscribe to her page. But come on a vocal coach should know a live vocal and you can clearly see in the video she's lip syncing.
Not only was she lip syncing, but the video in that clip is taken from an unofficial remix of "Frozen". It's not even the original live audio feed.
The color scheme and cover is like a dark, brunette Bedtime Stories... she even has the martini resting behind her.
Not sure what it is, but this is one of my favorite covers of her entire career.

I think she has never look so good this decade. Not that the previous looks was dull
You know I'm not a hater but my enthusiasm dulls a little bit with each new release because, taken together, it's a bit meh.
If you're rolling out multiple tracks leading up to an album, for fucksake give listeners some contrast and something legitimately experimental matching the level of hype she's building in all of the teasers, interviews and photo shoots.

Gorgeous cover. I hope these photos are part of the Madame X artwork.
