Yeah well, what a freaking surprise, Madonna’s dragging out all the old quality material to get ass much publicity as possible. The Daily Mail in the UK has reported that Madonna went on stage in Paris and made out with a girl – shock freaking horror – in another effort to get publicity for her new album, “Hard Candy” in which she danced with Justin Timberlake and Timbaland – so she could drum up the notion that she’s not just a fake English accent wielding 50 year old matron who paints her sheep red and green and goes hunting for pheasant which she then probably doesn’t even eat.
Usually, when TV shows get to the point where they’re at the top of their game and they are more or less going to sink in ratings and quality, they get axed or they finish so that the actors and people involved get to ride out high on the memory of the quality material they produced.
No, Madonna hasn’t put a foot wrong her entire career (well, except for her insistence that she appear in films) and she’s been in control and a gorgon-esque ambitious diva who has beaten the world into submitting so she’s not going to wilt any time soon.
By the genuinely interesting looks of things, if Madonna’s out there sucking face with women on stage again – even though the first time it was interesting, it means she’s probably slipping from her pedestal – Joan Crawford style - and in actual fact, when you think about it, she actually looks remarkably similar to Faye Dunaway AS Joan Crawford in “Mommie Dearest”. Consequently, I really don’t think she should be beaten down in the media, I think she should be left to continue on this path until she’s a drooping carcass whose breasts drag along the floor and she’s unable to remember the words to her own music.
That would be progressive and hilarious and important. Yes, important is the word. She’d be the Louise Bourgeoise of the pop music world and that’s something I want and NEED to see. [source]
