Madonna’s Cringy pre-Grammys Video Has Traumatized Me for Life

There is nothing that Madonna can do in her golden years to tarnish her place in the pantheon of pop stars, she’s a living legend. Period.

However, we can hope that it will finally sink in that she’s not a spring chicken any more, and that she will learn to age gracefully.

Madonna would be well-advised to stay off TikTok and restrict her social media activity to Facebook and Twitter. Facebook is for Gen Xer’s and Baby Boomers, TikTok is for Z generation kids and immature Millennials. TikTok is a visual medium, and ill-suited for a 63-year-old pop star.

The Material Girl (Material Granny?) posted a 13-second clip on TikTok just before the Grammy Awards that was cringy as hell, and the best thing about is that it was so mercifully short.

Her post featured a close-up of her photoshopped face and large pink pouty lips. Large pink pouty lips on a young woman are hot, but on an old woman, let’s just say they’re not.

The unsettling TikTok post featured Madonna wearing silver chains and a black sheer top with her blond hair in four braids. Pathetic!

I will not include a link to the disturbing video, because I don’t want to gross out my friends, and I don’t want to give my enemies an excuse to sue me.

Madonna Please Age Gracefully

“Madonna took a hard fall during her Thursday night Madame X show in Paris, leaving the singer in tears as she struggled to walk off stage after the incident.

The Sun reports Madge, 61, was helped up by one of her dancers after the nasty fall, crying as she used a cane to further assist her off stage. The ‘Like A Virgin’ singer has reportedly been struggling with hip and knee injuries for months.”


Madonna is a living legend and an international icon, her legacy in music history is secure she doesn’t need to pretend that she’s still has the body and agility of a 20-year old to remain relevant.

When a mature 60-something woman dresses scantily it’s grotesque, desperate and repellent. When a concert goer sees Madonna writhing in a costume that a stripper would be too embarrassed to wear, it’s going to kill his libido and he’ll probably go straight home after the concert instead of hitting the bars.

Madonna took a hard fall during a concert in Paris, leaving the ageing diva in tears as she struggled to walk off the stage after the incident. One of her dancers used a can to assist her off the stage, which begs the question is she so decrepit that there’s always a cane on hand?

Madonna your fans love you and we don’t expect you to gyrate like a nubile teenager and look like a beauty queen. For the love of God please age gracefully, regardless how you look on the outside in our minds you will always be forever young.

Madonna’s Godawful Tribute to Aretha Franklin

“Who was Madonnas tribute for, anyway?

That`s the question many people on Twitter were asking after the Material Girl honored the Queen of Soul at the 2018 MTV VMAs in New York City last night. Madonna took to the stage toward the end of the broadcast to honor Aretha Franklin, who died last week at age 76. But, in doing so, viewers accused the 60-year-old pop icon of seemingly paid tribute to herself. And Madonna, who recently celebrated her milestone birthday in Malawi and Morocco, wore traditional African attire, leading some viewers to accuse the singer of cultural appropriation.”

Aretha Franklin began her legendary career as a precocious little girl singing Gospel and playing piano at her father`s Baptist church, and at the tender age of 14 she recorded her first Gospel album.

In 1960, at the age of 18, she spread her wings and embarked on a secular career, recording for Columbia Records but achieving only middling success. The Columbia executives didn`t realize they had a diamond in the rough, a genius waiting to make her mark on the music scene and the world. Instead of giving her the keys to the recording studio, and telling her “You go girl, do your thing” they attempted to package her for a mass (re: white audience.)

After six frustrating years with Columbia, Aretha signed with Atlantic Records, where she teamed with legendary producer Jerry Wexler, and the rest is history. Aretha recorded some of her most iconic songs during her Atlantic era, including Respect, You Make Me Feel like a Natural Woman, and Think.

Aretha enjoyed critical and commercial success in the 60s, 70`s, 80`s and beyond. The Queen conquered just about every musical genre, including Jazz, Soul, Funk, Blues and Gospel.

You`re the producers of the MTV VMA`s, how do you pay homage to the great Queen of Soul? You ask another black musical icon, a Quincy Jones or a Dionne Warwick to say a few words about the legend.

What you don`t do is ask a self-promoter like Madonna, pop legend though she may be, to pay tribute to the Queen of Soul. Anyone with two brain cells could have predicted that Madonna would pay “homage” to Aretha by babbling about herself, and only mentioning the soul legend in passing.

And to add insult to injury the Queen of Hype wore traditional African attire! Girlfriend please, adopting African children doesn`t make you an African!

The VMA`s and Madonna failed miserably in paying Respect to the Queen of Soul.

Madonna Thinks all Modern Music Sounds the Same

“Although this year has brought us some pretty good albums and singles – Scorpion, Liberation, the numerous G.O.O.D. Music releases, Everything Is Love, Lost and Found, Testing and lots more in different genres, Madonna`s still left unpleased saying there`s no distinction between all the sounds. The 59-year-old pop singer recently chatted with Vogue Italia and talked about the current landscape of music, in her eyes.

Madonna is currently preparing an upcoming album and living in Lisbon, Portugal, telling the publication how her new city provides a lot of inspiration for her craft. `It`s also such a nice antidote to what`s going on in the music business now where everything`s so formulaic, and every song has 20 guest artists on it, and everyone sounds the same. Something`s gotta give,` she explained.”


The Material Girl turns 60 this month, but she`s not at home in her mansion knitting thongs, and complaining about how today`s music sucks.

The sexy sexagenarian tours regularly, and she`s working on a new album to be released later this year, but actually she does criticize the state of today`s music.

The pop icon is entitled to her opinion, and aspiring singers and established artists would be well-advised to listen.

First of all they should listen to Madonna`s classic albums like: Like a Virgin, Ray of Light, Confessions on a Dance Floor, and Like a Prayer. The Queen of Pop made a huge impact on music with her originality, innovation, strong lyrical skills, and mediocre vocals.

Then they should listen to her criticism of the current landscape of music, the shit all sounds the same.

Why does almost every artist, especially in the hip hop genre, feel compelled to include 20 guest artists and a dozen producers in their albums? This insanity makes it almost impossible for a singular voice to rise to the top, and revolutionize the music industry.

I`m just going to listen to Madonna`s albums until today`s musical “stars” grow some balls, have faith in their music, and not include a dozen guest singers and rappers on their albums.
