I think Madonna is very smart. While academics, lovers and haters debate about her, I think she's just way ahead of everyone.
Madonna rocks. The fact that todays little starlets are still compared to Madonna is proof of that. And they all "borrow" from the Madonna play book; copy cat music videos, similar fashion choices, and even ripping her melodies for their hits... It would appear she is anything but "yesterday".
Madonna is musically immortal now. Even 10 years from now if she decides to release new music and tour she will earn 100+ mill in the year, guaranteed.
Or, she could simply chill and take a year off and still make money.
^She has done that before btw.
If Madonna had a penny for every time she's been declared "over," she'd be a multi-millionaire.
All the love...
i'm feeling it. Thank you all--from a Madonna fan!
Madonna is the queen. Even the Beatles forsaw her as the goddess of music with their song Lady Madonna.
LOL @ THESE MADONNA MEMES.
Let's see Elton do that
Superstar was a HORRIBLE choice as a single for 4th singles from MDNA!!!
Okay so, not the biggest Madonna fan but this guy I'm seeing frequently loves her so I decided to check out her music. I'm not a really big fan still but I really like some of her songs. My top 10 Madonna songs are as follows:
10. I Don't Give A
8. Ray of Light
7. Hung Up
6. Girl Gone Wild
5. Take A Bow
4. Dance 2night
1. Papa Don't Preach
I don't think I'd ever want to see her in concert for 2 hours or something but I do like these songs and a few others. I do appreciate the fact that most, if not all of her music is pop and not really pop mixed with other genres like RnB or Rock, etc. It's actually the same reason I very much love Kylie, but Kylie and Madonna's music is very different. In short I feel Kylie's music is much "happier" than Madonna's. So I'd rather dance to something like Spinning Around/Can't Get You Out of My Head/Get Outta My Way before I'd dance to Madonna's songs.
But yes, Madonna is cool in her own way

Saw the MDNA tour on Tuesday. It was really good. She kept us waiting 2 hours while she watched the debate but she seemed friendly. That was the 3rd time I saw her. I saw the Confessions tour and I saw her at her best in the Who's That Girl World Tour. That was my first concert. Memories.
Madonna came to Indonesia once and it was too perverted
I prefer Kylie's work over Madonna's. Only enjoy about four Madonna albums (True Blue, Like a Virgin, Ray of Light, Music). Madonna's current problem is her inability to connect with youth. Haven't been to a Madonna concert but I wouldn't hazard to assume she's rocking the 25+ demographic.
I see no reason to choose between Kylie and Madonna. They seem to coexist without intrusion. If I had to choose though, it would be Madonna. I just haven't heard enough Kylie albums cover to cover to compare her fairly to the Queen.
I love them both, but I've loved Madonna for longer. Actually, I think Kylie's more recent music is having the reverse problem of Madonna not appealing to youth. A lot Kylie's long-time fans keep ripping her apart for being in her 40s and singing "silly pop songs" like the ones from Aphrodite, and also Timebomb. Especially the Impossible Princess stans... I don't get it.
Madonna's attempts to appeal to younger audiences are a lot more transparent though. I don't think many are buying it, and it's turning off some of her older fans too. The fan favorites from the last two albums -- "Devil Wouldn't Recognize You," "Miles Away," "Love Spent," "I'm Addicted," "Gang Bang" -- have a huge difference in lyrical depth from the first two singles of each album.
I could somewhat agree on the Madonna singles thing after listening to her last 2 albums (which I don't think are that bad) I don't get her major single release choices. I really like Dance 2night, Miles Away, Voices, Beat Goes On, Masterpiece, etc. over Give Me All Your Luvin' & 4 Minutes.
Madonna and Kylie seem to have a similar fan base because they are similar in style when it comes to music and fashion. But their songs are very different and that's where they seem to diverge. I prefer Kylie a lot more.
Kylie's releasing The Abbey Road Sessions this month, and will release a re-make of On a Night Like This on December 17! And she's reportedly also going release her 12th studio album next year.
^ Ugh we desperately need a Kylie thread. I want to make one, but don't have the patience to keep it running.
I could try and help you
I think it's 2018 that it expires. She signed a 10-year, 3-album, 5-tour contract with them while she was still with Warner, as both legs of Sticky and Sweet counted toward Madonna's touring obligations with Live Nation. MDNA was the first album and third tour, so she's got two of each left.
Anybody else watching Madonna on The Ellen Degeneres show?
^sorry mate...im east coast
So, just finished it.
Ellen says 'Madonna' and the audience gays go insane. Madge comes out in a fabulous outfit. Questionnaire: "Gaga has good voice/Elton is a nice ass". Ellen gets a corset, they vogue. Gay in the audience losing it (he so wanted Madonna to hug him, she should have gave him a hug). Rocco, adorable looks just like Guy. Everyone in audience gets Madonna merchandise.
All this talk of Madonna vs Britney, Madonna vs Xtina.....is getting tired - Madonna is the FUCKING QUEEN! And this video proves it, LOL.
Gaga doesn't get a mention, because this was done way back in 2002BG (Before Gaga)
An official Madonna thread oh my God now I know I made the right decision joining this site ;_;
^ haha...yes! Welcome, Jersey!
Also: hearing her speak on how she feels when she looks back on here massive career and everything she's done, I saw somewhat of a humble side of Madonna.
the dancers part was a bore to me.
And agreed-Rocco is sooo cute!
sidenote: I found the pant-less waiter guy kinda hot. Then again--I just like to see guys with sock suspenders (somewhat of a fetish).
^her dancers were kinda hot looking though. I also liked the "Know Madonna or Go Madonna" segment.
I can't wait to see her in Rio
The ellen interview just proves Madonna has tremendous star power and charisma.
I made this gif from the show:
what a career!
I love how Ellen's people conveniently forgot to include the cover for Hard Candy in that montage.
Not that I blame them.
