Madonna’s I’m alive, I still make music, I’m still here promo tour is in full swing in the run up to her new album, which is due out in late March. She’ll be performing a medley of her hits at the Super Bowl this weekend (and she’d better hit some “Holiday” and “Borderline,” or a Witch will write a letter). Madge is expected to tour this year to promote the new album. “MDNA.” Many of her critics (and perhaps, some fans too) have been critical of her high ticket prices in recent years. She shrugged off those critics, telling Newsweek:
“Start saving your pennies now. People spend $300 on crazy things all the time, things like handbags. So work all year, scrape the money together and come to my show. I’m worth it.”
Girl bye! Is her Kabaalah bracelet on too tight? Is the Botox skipping her forehead and going directly into her brain? She is straight trippin’, boo.
BTW, if you are a Madge fan with no pennies to scrape, the next stop on her publicity train will be the American Idol stage tonight. And it won’t cost you 300 bucks.
Madonna sat down for an extended interview with ABC’s Nightline Thursday to talk about her new movie, upcoming Super Bowl performance and her new/younger lover. Her responses were typical and you can watch the full sit-down here, if you care. But, it was a fan-submitted question that got the BEST answer from the Queen of Reinvention.
When asked what she thinks of Lady Gaga and —specifically her song “Born This Way” which sounds a lot like Madge’s “Express Yourself”— Madonna shaded the hell out of Stephanie Germanotta. Watch… Taste The Brew for the video
As I sit here and contemplate over how everyone is going so hard on Gabby for being obese my childhood memory takes me back to Ms. Jayne Kennedy. She was the “Beyonce” of my young days. Everything with a peen wanted a piece of Ms. Kennedy (and some with poons too). Truly a beautiful lady. But of course over the years things changed, as they should right? I mean as we age surely we can’t expect to maintain our 20 year old figure well into our 40′s and 50′s can we? But then I think about Mad Dog (Madonna) who is 150 years old and looks like this:
and I can’t help but think maybe we can maintain the figure of our youth. As black women,do we just not care that much? Is it because our men drop major bank in titty clubs for women who are gravy thick? Or maybe were truly just big boned? Or are those Famous Dave’s ribs just too yummy to pass up? Madonna may not be a good example cause she’s on some psycho ish with her eating/work out plan, or perhaps it’s not psycho at all and the feeling that it is is the reason why black women stray more down the “Precious” road than other women.
Even our first lady is fit and lean and she gets up at 4:30 am to stay that way. So maybe it’s all about how an individual wants to feel as they age, because I’m sure I could come up with 10,000 more examples of non-black women who still look amazing (body wise anyway cause Mad Dog’s face is definitely a lil on yikes! side) for their age, but a much shorter list for black women.
