this. Some fans trashed HC yet it was the beginning of the return of the Madonna they loved! Sugar pussy!

It was the beginning of the Moses wandering around the dessert. Until MDNA tour

I did love her persona. Absolutely.

Music and American Life are my all-time favorite albums (both lyrically and musically). Those albums also got some of her best videos. She gave us some of the best performances during those years. She looked beautiful and youthful. And I personally love IGTTYAS too: like Ziggy said, she was on a different mission back then. I'm not religious person (I'm atheist) but I still got so much strenght and wisdom from her words, especially during AL era. That album is one of the rare few that speaks to me on so many levels.

But those years were pretty quiet time to time. Nothing much (interesting) happened between albums. So, that's the only downside.

The great thing about Madonna is that she is evolving all the time. And it's like watching a phoenix rising from the ashes everytime.

Aside from American Life, there is nothing I miss about this era

Remember those flashing red kabbalah cult strings on IGTTYAS :dead: I ran to the kabbalah centreand bought like 10

I love Madonna, but seriously, and even though I'm glad that was her mid-life crisis and it's all behind us now, wtf was she thinking?

That skit on SNL with Donatella Versace and Madonna perfectly sums up this era:

Madonna: [fake British accent] Hello Donatella. Happy Valentine's Day. I brought you something.

Donatella Versace: [excited]Oh, Madonna! Its a present for me? Give it to me, give it to me, faster, hand it over![takes the book] What the hell is this?

Madonna: Its my new children's book. Its the story of one little girl's discovery of the Kabbalah.

Donatella Versace: Kabbalah? That sounds Ka-boring. Madonna, let's smoke and have some champagne.

Madonna: No, thank you, Donatella. I don't pollute my body with those things. I like to be present and in control.

Donatella Versace: Oh, were you in control when you let Dennis Rodman bone you sideways? Now, do me a favor and GET OUT!!!![Madonna leaves] Oh, Madonna. I love her so much. Hey, Elton make up a Valentine's Day song while I sink 50 cigarettes to calm myself down.[Donatella lights up a fat stack of ciggies]

Gym+Kabbalah+Soy lattes :)

I remember her Will&Grace episode (she looked AMAZING!) and her Megan Mullaly interview for VH1,seems like it was just yesterday

She had a period 2007/2008 where she was constantly wearing Ed Hardy to the gym :( sadly I bought some because of her

The wig! :grr: She looks like a dwarf in that tracksuit pic.

The major 'Madge' British era was of course the Music era, which was the Godly golden age, when success, artistic achievement, family, trend-setting, and critical recognition all flowered like never before. People here are just talking about the patchier success of the American Life era and conflating the two.

People talking about Madonna being 'herself' and 'happier' now are of course talking shit. For one thing, even if she is more 'herself' and 'happier' now, we wouldn't have any way of knowing, not being in her head. We can only make reasonable assumptions, and the reasonable assumption for me here would be that she would prefer her earlier life with Guy to sharing her family and being escorted around by paid companions. They say it because they are happier with her now, not because they think she is.

And you have never expressed anything positive about any other Madonna era besides this as it's the one you can relate to the most because she was essentially "British" at that time. You aren't even really a Madonna fan per se, but a fan of a couple Madonna albums so please.......save the analysis.

Oh Please. Madonna has expressed so many times that she felt repressed by her marriage. I mean,

“I did sometimes find myself in a state of conflict. There were times when I wanted to express myself as an artist in ways that I don’t think my ex-husband was comfortable with. There were times I felt incarcerated. I wasn’t really allowed to be myself.”

"I tried to be a good girl

I tried to be your wife

Diminished myself

And I swallowed my light

I tried to become all

That you expect of me

And if it was a failure

I don’t give a"

She summed it all up herself.

I don't consider Music to be part of the "Lady of the manor" era. It's more like a transitional phase. I love the albums we got, i love love American life but image wise it's awful. The videos were atrocious even American Life, good ideas but bad execution hence why there are so many versions, Hollywood is a mess even though i adore the parts where she's sitting on the tv set, Love profusion is atrocious, it looks like a commercial for a toilet bowl freshener. R&R, Gap commercial, the children books, the adidas trainers, CHRISTIAN AUDIGIER clothes ( to me that's her nadir), Sorry video, Vogue portfolio....During that time the only times i saw a glimpse of former Madonna imagewise were the Mert and Marcus pics for Pop, the Die another day video, Confessions tour, W spreads 2003/2006

And she wrote Substitute for love about her previous horndog life which everyone here proposes she was super-thrilled with until she met Andy Bird and got 'religion', and that she's now gloriously returned to. I'm sure there were times when she made compromises for Guy, and I'm sure he made compromises for her. That's marriage.
