64 is not “almost 70”.

But yeah, she needs to get a grip. Woof. I think back at some of the women in their early 60s whom I knew twenty years ago. They never, ever would have behaved like this. Even if they were as famously (and as famously trashy in their youth) as Madonna.

I want to root for her, for whatever reason, but she does not make it easy. The plastic surgery or fillers or whatever it is, for starters. How horrible would she REALLY have looked right now if it weren’t for all that? Couldn’t have been that bad. There are certainly lots of people around her age who get *tasteful* work done. Why couldn’t she?

I would not say she ever built up goodwill with the public. She was never widely "liked," in the sense of people having warm feelings toward her personally. Her public image was brazen, obnoxious, combative, aloof.

A lot of people enjoyed her music, and maybe they respected her for her business smarts and her ability to reinvent herself and stay relevant. She kept it up longer than most pop stars manage.

But the 2010s were a time of declining popularity for her, and the '20s are going to be more of the same. In a few years, there are going to be full-fledged adults who weren't alive when Confessions on a Dance Floor was released. Think about how remote her True Blue/Like a Prayer heyday will seem to them.

by Anonymousreply 94November 4, 2022 3:26 PM

The shame here is that a few short years ago she was happily chatting on Live With Kelly about refocusing on her family and watching her son play soccer, etc. There was a sense that she valued more than just the next professional conquest.

If she'd kept to that mindset, invested in her family relationships, limited her public presence and embraced being a semi-retired Queen, she'd have been welcomed to major events for rare appearances and been utterly worshipped. She could have released one or two songs a year and folks would have been thrilled. And there'd be no need for plastic surgery because she be "beyond that", as a champion with nothing to prove, away from the spotlight by choice, with an untouchable record of excellence.

...but now? I can't see her getting invited anywhere prestigious. Her looks and desperately creepy antics make her seem unstable. Fine, Cher got a shit-ton of plastic surgery too, but regardless of the results, she hasn't been playing bathroom slut online.

Didn't Madonna crave acceptance as a "classy" artist back in the 90s? Wasn't that what playing Evita was all about? What happened..?

You'd think she'd embrace less is more and stay lowkey in order to wear the fancy gowns at prestigious events and get the Icon treatment.

Instead, its the fucking grillz and ugly lingerie and fake butt. Sigh.

She could have coasted now.

Does she really think she's being edgy or making worthwhile content? Just write a good song, girl. That's enough.

That's the problem. If she had actually changed during Ray of Light (like she was constantly claiming), things could have been different. One thing I will say about MJ--he never treated his fans the way Madonna treats hers. He always loved his fans and he didn't act like they were "beneath" him. I don't care for his music, I'm a much bigger fan of Madonna's music and I can say that.

Who is this person claiming Madonna built herself goodwill with the public? That was like 25 years ago! In America, that went out the door with American Life and she never recovered. In the rest of the world, it's been all downhill since Confessions. From 2012 onwards, she's displayed consistently inexcusable behavior. Calling Gaga reductive (a legend trashing a newly established rising star isn't a good look), that kiss with Drake, the plastic surgery, that awful Graham Norton appearance with Sir Ian McKellen, her instagram posts, wearing grills, saying the N word in a tweet (could have been an instagram post, not sure), constantly parading around her children like props, hanging out with the Kardashians, etc. None of that builds "goodwill" with the general public. It does seem to entice the top .000001% of her fanbase though.

I don't think the Kabbalah stuff or the behavior after the marriage to Guy Ritchie were that disturbing. They were eccentric behvaviors, but very much in keeping with her star persona.

She only really lost it in recent years with the shutdown and then the huge failure of the "Madame X" tour--that really seemed to push her completely over the edge. Anyone who would argue she now knows what she's doing and is sane would themselves be nuts (though it's still jawdropping to me how the huge Madonna stan on Datalounge kept trying to argue she still had it together during the Madame X tour which was such a disaster).

I saw her on the MDNA Tour several times and although she was crazy late each time I saw her, I thought the show was awesome and since I was 26 at the time the late hours didn’t bother me so much. But it was still a bit of a step down in terms of the excitement in the air at the shows compared to the last few tours before that - she had waited too long after Hard Candy to make a new album, and in that interim there was a gaggle of new, younger females coming up (Rihanna, Gaga, Katy, Taylor, Lana) and she really needed a slam dunk of an album to come back with, and MDNA just wasn’t it. Looking back, I think that was the beginning of the end (or downward slide if you will). I don’t think she knew how to handle it and the seeds of real desperation were planted from that point on. Someone else mentioned the severe blow to the head at the Brit awards in 2015 on stage and I’m convinced that was the other major turning point. I remember feeling so terrible for her - knowing how incredible she was live and how many crazy physical stunts she has done on tour that always went off without a hitch - it was really the worst thing that could have happened to her, it reinforced the idea in the publics mind that she was too old and past her sell by date, when in reality she was (at least up until MDNA) such a strong physical and agile live performer. A shame. I give her a lot of credit for getting up and finishing the song like a trooper … but I truly wonder if that head injury was worse than we all realized.

R82, apparently she does it when she turns up hours late. The audience often boo and jeer her when she finally shows and she tells them off for complaining. I'll try to find an article where this happened but check this put for arrogance:

In Brisbane, fans reportedly queued for refunds when the Material Girl failed to materialise up to two hours after she was due on stage.

It’s not her fault though. “I’m hardly ever late. It’s you people that get here early that’s the problem,” she told the crowd in Brisbane when she finally came on, two and a half hours after the billed start time.

“Stay home, do your hair and makeup, have a tequila. Just come late and I won’t have to come early.”

It's sad that she acts unhinged like Britney on social media. I've said it many times before, but she desperately needs new management and people around her to help finesse her image and advise on her overall direction. The current people, if there are any left (I guess Guy Oseary, who I suspect has been asleep at the wheel for ages and just collecting a paycheck), aren't doing a good job.

Madonna needed to become a regal elder "stateswoman" in music as she aged. Someone whose legend remained untarnished and something the younger stars strived to achieve. Instead, we got this desperate Baby Jane Hudson act, flailing around with drugs, booze and taking semi-nude bathroom selfies for attention, like some public access TV show you pay attention to only out of morbid curiosity.

She only has a limited time to rein it in before the damage to her career is too far gone to recover from. She will never be what she was 20 years ago, because she is well past what any popular music figure has ever been in terms.of her age. But she can still make art that is respected. Instead she seems to operate under the delusion that offering shock and a spectacle will resuscitate her popularity. The kids don't know her and she is at an age when some of her original fans have either aged out of pop music or could even be dying off. There are harsh realities afoot that she seems incapable of dealing with like a mature adult.

Guy Oseary is a horrible manager. Freddy DeMann and LIz Rosenberg would never have let this shit fly. Even when the Sex book backlash was going on, they knew how to regroup and she came back strong with Bedtime Stories, Evita and Ray of Light. Granted that was a long time ago, but she had good management then. She had people around her who seemed to care about her, or at least cared about her brand.

I don't know how Guy Oseary, as a manager, can think any of these social media posts are good. for business. People cannot relate to her anymore. They're disgusted by her. And this isn't just people who are not her fans - these ARE her fans. She is becoming universally reviled. But I guess Madonna doesn't care and thinks all this trolling is good for attention.

by Anonymousreply 162November 5, 2022 4:57 AM

Career prestige, which she chased in that Ray of Light era and a couple of other times must have been really unfulfilling for her, and not worth the effort. Shocking and being rude is easy, requires minimal talent, and is instantly gratifying.

The other times she did seem sincere, like setting up her Malawi charity now seem questionable. I know she rescued David from a life of hardship, and perhaps death but she does not respect those kids or their families by acting like this.

The blow to the head was just a fall on the back. It was during a live performance of Living For Love. She walked up some stairs with a cape that was supposed to easily come off and get yanked away by her twin Asian dancer girls behind her. Unfortunately that night, Madonna tied the ribbons from the cape too tight around her neck and ran out of time to undo the knot, so when the twins pulled her cape she fell back with it.

She was up about 4 steps and thankfully landed flat on her back in the floor, ot on the steps, and got back up promptly afterwards and did the whole number. She did not seem to hit her head or get dizzy.

She spoke about it on Ellen afterwards and laughed that she was fine, and in such good shape it didn't phase her much. Because of her age and the fact that we saw it happen live, I feel like the public will mythologize it as The Accident!!! but really I doubt it hurt her. She'd definitely been through worse physically.

The last time she seemed on her game was the Superbowl. She SLAYED that. Then the decline began. Weak songs, chasing rappers for approval, Madame X and the weird eyepatch, then the scary surgeries, etc.

Her legacy is a mess now. Even if she stopped today and totally kept out of the spotlight except for rare classy appearances, she'd still be remembered for having a "tragic end".

Once the face gets messed up, that's how it goes for ladies. A real shame.

She doesn't go outside because she only wants to be seen in a way she can control and edit. She may be over, but if she goes outside she WILL be followed. Much like Jlo and Ben on their honeymoon, and Baby Jane Hudson at the very end of Whatever Happened etc.

Her primary residence is in NYC and as everyone knows it's a Walking City; there are people out on the street all the time. Slowly drawing a crowd is inevitable. And what they'll see won't align with most people's image of Madonna the Brand.

If you've ever walked by her house on East 80th St (or is it 81st?), the sidewalk level is a fortress of black metal, and there are discreet little signs that basically say "keep it moving. don't even think about standing here."

by Anonymousreply 185November 5, 2022 9:35 AM

^ This. 2019 as a totality had to be a big blow to her ego. The Eurovision humiliation went viral. The Vanessa Grigoriadis profile in the NYT Magazine, for which M granted access and cooperation, enraged her when she saw the published version. (It was titled "Madonna at Sixty" and was a probing, somewhat critical piece. Of course, because celebrities never grasp the Streisand effect, she only drew more attention to it with her social-media fury and attacks on Grigoriadis and the paper.) The Madame X album sold half as well as Rebel Heart, which had sold half as well as MDNA. The tour got a mixed reception and there were many canceled dates, from her knee injury and then from pandemic restrictions.

I think she believed it was the year she was going to pull off one more improbable comeback, and it wasn't. Since then, she has seemed to come unmoored.

It's sporadic yet seems to happen two to three times a year. they always look like they're being held hostage when they're wearing that shit. I have to wonder if she calls up the press to embarass her kids as punishment. We saw some of that with the other children, too. I have trouble grasping the dynamics. On one hand, she seems decent enough (for a celeb) with them until they hit their teens (then they seemingly are treated like her peers, or maybe more like her backup dancers.) -- it's the same vibe with St. Angie. All those kids will have to wait til mama's dead for the tell-all... though they'd probably lock it to a trust to avoid that. Just unsettling.

She acts like a child from a big family who screams out that this or that is hers before anyone else can claim it. Her recent quote that she’s still sticking her finger in cigarette sockets because her father told her not to is all you need to know - it’s arrested development. She’s still rebelling against her father who’s 100 years old.

Studies have shown narcissism is more often driven by insecurity rather than grandiose sense of self.

We see it in Trump, Nicki Minaj, and Madonna.

Trump can't handle others being smarter or more wealthy or having bigger towers than him. Nicki and Madonna can't stand that other women are now pioneers in hiphop and pop respectively. They can't handle that they are now too old for younger audiences to care about them, and younger audiences are what drives consumerism and the algorithms that get artists #1s. They can't stand it when women are more successful than they are. Nicki attacks every single black woman in hiphop once they any buzz. Madonna can't stand that she's getting physically older and that the young audience she wants expects a sense of decorum from a woman old enough to be their grandmother.

Camille Paglia had her number in 2016, and it's only gotten WORSE. I also think Camille is a DLer - she basically accused Madonna of having a ratty Korean wig.

[quote]The number one issue in Madonna’s current path of self-destruction is her embarrassing inability to deal with aging. She has failed to study the example of her great role model, Marlene Dietrich, who retained her class and style to the end. Madonna keeps chasing after youth, humiliating herself with vulgar displays, like the horrendously trashy, buttock-baring outfit she wore to the Metropolitan Museum of Art Gala in May.

[quote]She has become a cringe-making pastiche of ratty blonde hair extensions and artificially swollen cheeks, obscuring the magnificent classic bone structure that made her one of the most photogenic celebrities of the 1990s. In her struggles to stay relevant, Madonna has debased herself with adolescent, pitifully inept Instagrams that cannot compete with Rihanna’s brilliant work in that genre.

When I was young, I knew who Mae West and Al Jolson were. I knew who Amelia Earhart was, etc. I think Internet “noise” and useless information has obscured all manner of historical content. It’s really not the “fault” of the young, rather the world we live in.

It's interesting to see people comparing Madonna to Pete Burns. I read Burns' autobiography, "Freak Unique." Although it was sad, it was interesting and contained more self-insight than I would have thought. Unlike Madonna, Burns was closer to an avant-garde body-mod experimenter like Genesis P-Orridge than a deluded poor man's Mae West. He was aware of the madness of what he was doing and he was frank in the book about how much it hurt physically and how much it harmed his health.

It probably helped that he didn't have the money to live in a world of utter delusion. I don't think he was sane, exactly, but he definitely had at least one foot in reality. I don't think Madonna's even visited reality in years.

Which if that's the case... 60s is usually when it starts heading into greater extremes, patients can become med resistant -- which isn't as simple as upping dosage as much as large cocktail of drugs continuously cycled but most patients will just stop taking them, hard enough to get them to take one.. besides after a while, it would be stopped because of toxicity levels and they'd recommend alternatives. It is possible she's had those, even. Most patients benefit but some end up a little kookier than before and have memory and impulse issues.

I have four or five friends, all 40+ who were huge Madonna fans. When she'd go on tour they'd see her repeatedly and always buy good seats. If I had to guesstimate they probably spent each $5K-$10K per tour. Some of them would also travel to flyover country to see her where the tickets (they claimed) were more modestly priced and where the travel + tickets would be cheaper than MSG. They also paid to be part of some sort of early access group and they all had really extensive collections of merchandise.

It took a long time, but almost all of them are over her. I think one of these friends saw one night of the Madam X tour. Most of them think it's very sad and that there's something very wrong with her which has changed drastically in the last five or so years. They think she also is in constant pain and that her butt implant somehow went bad or something and can't be removed... one thinks that this is all part of a performance and that she'll reveal herself to be just fine soon.

I don't think she quite realizes how fruitless her attempts are to wow her kids crowd and I don't think she realizes how all of this alienates adults who would actually support her going forward.

by Anonymousreply 367November 16, 2022 1:11 AM

R367, that's interesting. Did the lateness to her own concerts have an impact on your friends liking her at all? BTW, she hasn't sold out MSG for years, has she? She claimed the smaller venues were for the benefit of the performance, but all that happened was she had to play more nights and put her body under more stress.

However, I consider myself fortunate, I have never had the urge to see her live which has saved me lots of money and frustration in the long run.

Madonna hasn't been able to accept the fact that she's aged out of being a contemporary artist and is now a legacy artist and it's driven her totally crazy. Some people like Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Nicks and Billy Joel accept that they're legacy artists and just continue to do their jobs but Madonna is desperately trying to be relevant to a young audience who a) barely know who she is and b) have no interest in somebody who's old enough to be their grandmother. They have artists from their own generation who they follow, they don't care about Granny.

Feminism only suits Madonna when it suits HER. She was nasty about other female stars and then years later, she was all like "women need to stick together". But that didn't apply to Gaga, who Madonna was legitimately threatened by.

And I find it interesting that Madonna always takes on the ideas of the men she's with at the time. Remember when her videos became more violent when she was with Guy Ritchie? Or when she was spouting that COVID bullshit when she was with that younger dancer? She's a typical hypocrite who cries feminism but then will acquiesce to the men she's with.

Remember when she ditched us gays for Guy? She surrounded herself with straight dancers and the occasional gay one. With Truth or Dare she treated her gay dancers like she was showing them off at show and tell. She really didn't show them as fully dimensional people. The straight dancer, Oliver, got more coverage.

Madonna is a lot more conservative than we realize.

We do know Madonna likes well hung young Puerto Rican men.

Rumor was, many years ago, she was driven around in a limo through certain areas of Manhattan looking for hot male Puerto Rican street hookers to service her. These male street hookers usually gathered along certain streets in the 50s on the East side of the city.

by Anonymousreply 432November 21, 2022 1:35 AM

R432, you are forgetting a key part. Many of those Puerto Ricans weren't even men, they were teenagers . This is from the I hate Madonna book:

According to several sources, Madonna often cruised Manhattan's Lower East Side in her limo, picking up young Latino men and having her way with them.

Madonna intimate Erica Bell has described these joy rides by saying, "You could go down to Avenue D and find dozens of guys who'll tell you they were picked up by Madonna. And they'd be telling the truth."

Bell remembered riding with Madonna and "picking up two or three at a time."

Sometimes she'd be satisfied with just a kiss, "but if she really liked the kid, she'd just rip off his clothes and do whatever she wanted with him while we drove around New York."

According to Mark Kamins, Madonna sometimes brought the destitute boys home to her luxurious apartment on the Upper West Side.

"She ran a Puerto Rican stud farm up there," he said.

Wasn't there any risk the boys would tell someone about the experiences after she had abandoned them? "These were just banji boys, downtown kids," Johnny Dynell, a close-hand observer, has said. "Madonna was smart. She knew nobody would believe them."

I was a fan of Madonna from 1983 to 2018 but the last four years have destroyed her legacy and I've grown to really dislike her. This is the same woman who I would run to the record store on release day to buy her new album. I wouldn't even cross the street to watch her in concert - even if it was free.

I spent thousands of dollars throughout the years on Madonna concert tickets, vinyl, cassettes, CDs, laserdiscs (!), DVDs and Blu-Rays and books but I find I am not drawn to her music anymore - as much as I like her previous stuff - because of her antics. She has spoiled her legacy so even putting on True Blue or Ray of Light just reminds me of the gremlin she's devolved into.

And sex was never the thing I liked about Madonna. Yeah it added a little spice but at the end of the day I liked her music and performances. I liked her for her music, her videos and her concerts. But everything she does now is about sex, double entendres, crass sexual jokes, and showing off her disgusting body.

[quote] Do you think Madonna could be helped by going to therapy? Or she could/would never listen to the therapist and the advice given?

I don't think anything can help her now. She's too egotistical and insecure about taking advice from anyone else. She now plays the victim all the time, which she never did before. What made Madonna popular was she had a tough attitude and didn't whine. Now, every criticism towards her - in her view - is ageism! Sexism! Misogyny! Patriarchy! She never takes any responsibility for her poor behaviour.

by Anonymousreply 462November 22, 2022 6:24 AM

Madonna's constant whining reminds me of a moment from The Simpsons. Marge and Homer are at some carnival and Homer says "see Marge, I told you I could deep fry my shirt" while Marge's response is "I didn't say you couldn't, I said you SHOULDN'T". That's what Madonna's hardcore stans miss. Nobody is telling Madonna she can't lick a dog bowl, wear grills, constantly be naked, make out with 20 year olds, get awful plastic surgery, etc. They are saying she SHOULDN'T. You know your dealing with a shallow version of feminism when their main concerns revolve around whether a woman can constantly act like a whore at 70.

R467, appreciate it. As a former fan who still likes her classic hits, I have to be honest and say that I think that in retrospect, the Madonna mania of the 80s looks pretty silly now. It makes sense why people in the 80s would have been thrilled by her but shock tactics don't age well. And the problem with making your music secondary to your celebrity image is that your music will be forgotten. And that's exactly what happened.

Looking at this video, Rosie was the in-charge person in their relationship. Madonna was the most famous woman in the world, and Rosie was the up-and-coming but hardly world-famous sidekick.

30 years later, Rosie is the best known one. All young people today know who Rosie is and what she stands for.

In 1978 a friend of mine came over, he was a big disco, bar, back rooms the whole thing in NY. I was sitting down for morning coffee, I think he had been out all night in the club scene then. He says 'try this' and pulls out what he told me was a popper. Not like that thing in a bottle Madonna has like I guess they have now but a glass ampules wrapped in a cloth sleeve. I had no idea what it was and he instructs me how to do it. You break it, it kind of crushes but no glass escapes because it's wrapped in this netting and stuff, he tells me hold it up to your nose when you do and inhale it. That thing made my heart slam so hard I thought I was going to have a heart attack or something. It was stolen from an er is what he said I think. I can't imagine that is what the same ones they have now are, because it was a true medicine for reviving the heart. Amyl nitrate.

Madonna has lost her way, this is due to no longer being relevant. Seems doubtful her supposed craziness is age related, it more about losing her rabid audience. Her fans moved on because she never progressed, she's stuck in a sexpot rut, which simply doesn't work at her age.

There's likely no dementia or Alzheimers, she simply cannot deal with aging like the rest of the world, because she thinks she's better than the common folk.

Madonna cannot deal with people no longer being interested her, in turn, her antics became more bizarre. Her music never progressed, there are no new ideas and she cannot figure out how to transcend her one-note sexpot image. Or what pas icons to rip-off.

The sex image worked while she was young, it could no longer be sustained as she aged. Madonna seems so clueless as to what she can do with her time. Her management team probably gave up on her too.

I honestly don't think she's got an actual mental illness, she's simply grasping for attention. While on Jimmy Fallon a few months ago, she didn't come across as overly wired or drugged, she did come across as her usual self-absorbed self. No change there!

In a way, Madonna reminds me of my big brother. About the same age as she; for 40 years was ENTIRELY consumed by his job and high status in his specific profession. Never married, no LTRs (or STRs to my knowledge), no children, no pets, no outside hobbies. Retired and un-retired twice, then put to pasture permanently by new administration. Then the pandemic hit. Oh, did I mention he lives in Florida? Down the rabbit hole went he--far right talking points, Q theories, whackado Covid conspiracy bullshit, Alex Jones (he was a fan from back in the early 00s), the works. He's like a pod zombie.
