Nnnnnn...Madonna on karaoke. I always like your posts Phuel

It's my first Madonna concert experience so I think I have nothing to complain about, she cut the Gucci look in most of the shows during the Asian leg though.

About her acting age, she will continuse to doing so. But she looked glamorous during "Living for Love" and "Ghosttown", and then she had a somersault for "Bitch I'm Madonna". Before they revealed the sketches of costumes, I thought she would dress in a messy Moschino costume, with the dancers in Adidas, to preform it and some old hits remixed by Diplo. And comparing with the MDNA era(Gwen did it better), she's acting her age in a good way I think, even though she sings like a little girl in "BIM", I still remembered I was like WTF when I first heard the song, Madonna's version of "Barbie Girl"?! But I actually love it LOL.

I bet she has learnt a lessons from her 2 underperformed albums. Just wonder what happens next.

Madonna Wears $10 Million Worth of Diamonds in Rebel Heart Tour Video: All the Scoop Straight from Jeweler Neil Lane

Madonna brings back that look in her Rebel Heart tour book and for a special video played during her performances. And to help her create the Marilyn moment, celeb-loved jeweler Neil Lane provided $10 million worth of diamonds. (Because when you’re Madonna, anything is possible!)

“I sent hundreds of images of necklaces, earrings, and bracelets. They also sent me the clip of the performance in 1991 so I could review it,” Lane tells PEOPLE of selecting the jewelry looks for the star. “Madonna circled what she liked. She was very involved in the process.”

Lane and his team sent three guards to the shoot to deliver all the jewels, which he estimates weighed in anywhere between 500 and 1,000 carats of diamonds.

The jeweler adds that the whole Steven Klein-directed shoot turned out “magically,” but admits he was surprised when Madonna’s team asked if they could soak the jewels in “blood” (aka corn starch and food dye.)

“I didn’t know how to really respond,” Lane recalls. “This is all platinum and diamonds, but I said, ‘Okay, why not.’ But that’s typical of her. She takes something and twists it and makes it really relevant,” he shares, adding jokingly, “It was really sticky jewelry when it came back.”

^^^ I adore her lower-register voice. That sort of throaty soulfulness she possessed back in the days of "Rescue Me" and even "I Want You" is the brand of raw conviction, passion she burns into her music that no one, even the singers with technically powerful voices are able to do.

Her voice nowadays is so strained. And even worse, the trendy producers she insists on working with reduce her voice even further to a tinny, even timid hollowness. She needs to work with people that will push her, and respect her-- not these trendy kids who don't care to encourage her-- or even care about her; they seem to only want the fame, the brand recognition of having produced her.

She gets so much undeserved hate these days, it's become so disrespectful. Watching her Prince-tribute she was so timid, I felt for her. Her voice was strained, and although the passion and heartbreak was in her face since her and Prince were friends, the singing came off so guarded, like she had lost all confidence and is more concerned with being careful not to miss a note than to bring the swagger, the balls, that I've loved about her. I really felt for her during that performance.

She may not be as musically-talented as Prince, but she's always been way way way more visionary and braver than anyone in pop and rock. I hope she finds her confidence again.

Very well said, Phuel.

I hope we are witnessing the very last of M's "Sunset Boulevard" epoch...

^^^ I hope so as well. Maybe all this trendchasing to be down with the kids resulting in nothing but public ridicule will finally wake her up and she’ll distance herself from hanging out with 20yo and concentrate on her art again.

Kids don’t realize what balls, what vision and what conviction she had back in the days that none of the current crop of pop Queens would even dare: She championed diversity by working with Asians, Blacks, Latinos and god forbid, gays and presented their talents, beauty and confidence alongside her so casually without the need to make a statement about “diversity" way way way before it was the norm.

If nothing else, her allegiance— and pride and encouragement of her gay friends and collaborators to not shy away from their flamboyance, at a time when such attitudes where highly discouraged in public, would be enough to garner at least a bit of respect from kids today. I remember reading the Warhol diaries in which Andy wrote how devoted she was to her BFF Martin when he had AIDS, and she would playfully take a bit from the same chocolate that he was eating at a time when it was the popular belief that just being in the same room with someone who had AIDS would put you at risk; or how devoted she was to Basquiat even when he was ridiculed for being too far gone with his heroine addiction.

She is someone that is so loyal and dedicated to being a humanitarian in her private life, with no desire to let the whole world know about it like so many of today's so-called SJW, and all the while projecting this hard-as-nail iron woman with balls of steel publicly. The casual, ignorant accusations of prejudice and racism that’s directed towards her must hurt her so much— likely more than the neverending barrage of “old granny” or “slut who can’t sing". I just watched her 1993 Jonathan Ross interview of which she spoke in-depth regarding such issues as sexism, racism and ageism; and people were already dismissing her as “old” at 35. Now in 2016, the masses must be fuming that she’s still around popping her pu**y at almost 60 LOL
