    I loved Madonna but... I guess I just find myself not caring for her new stuff anymore? This new art direction just seems rehashed.

    I don't like the booklet at all, the lazy design is literally a Vogue Italia Polaroid issue rehash, and the only saving grace is the cover. BUT musically, this risk-taking album proves she still has it, God Control really got me shocked.

    God, she's so stunning! The album is brilliant and so unique it's a shame that many people are going to find it messy or bad simply because they won't be able to understand its qualities.

    ^^^ Madonna’s NYC days reads like that of the modern day Ulysses who was close with all the mythological figures of his world, Benn. Some of the most visionary giants of the creative world stood closely and intimately by her side: Martha Graham, Pearl Lang, Alvin Ailey, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Karole Armitage, Keith Haring, Prince, David Salle, Herb Ritts, Steve Meisel… (Yes, I’m aware Karole, David and Steven are very much alive, just that they’re also of her era.)

    Yes, but Martha Graham!?! Not a tutor at the school, THE Martha Graham, who is just about solely responsible for contemporary dance as we know it.

    I almost want to say Madonna demeans her own accomplishments by the way she's carrying on with that ridiculous eye patch and attention-seeking outfits. And when I hear her b!tch and moan over some award show passing on her in favour of Mariah (or was it Jennifer Lopez?), a WTF expression automatically forms on my face. You don't NEED their validation. You've trained at Martha Graham and that's enough. None of your peers could ever top that.

    ^^^ Shabba Doo also danced with her. A leader of breakers/lockers is just as equally impressive as Martha, as far as I’m concerned.

    Those early-80 shots of her in ripped jeans with all the breakers, are very much as a part of what shapes her strong identity as that gorgeous shoot of her in Martha Graham-styling shot by Lindbergh in 1994. Only she had that authenticity and complexity.

    Yes, it absolutely bites at me just a little when she stoops to being so desperate to be down with Drake, Anitta, Rosalia, or when Quavo couldn’t even be bothered to pretend he knows a song of hers when asked. This is the sort of thing I’m embarrassed for her when she’s so desperately seeking to be down with these dumb kidz who prefer Mariah. They’ll never accept nor understand her artistry. (You don’t see Grace Jones desperate to work with the latest fads, ever.)

    While at a gay club this past weekend, where the crowd was the 40+ scene, the DJ played that 1-2-cha-cha-cha song, and I've never seen a dancefloor clear out that fast before! That's how lame the song is: gay men that grew up on her don't dance to it, and I can't be bothered to google the name of the song.

    Phuel: Madonna, and Prince? I've read all sorts of accounts of her early days, each referencing the names you listed above, but I've never read anything about her & Prince. The only account I've read is that her first manager, maybe Guy, saw Prince, and was not impressed, but then saw Madonna, and signed on w/ her instead. Fake news..maybe? Oh, that, and "Love Song."

    ^^^ LOL @that tuneless mess clearing the dancefloor.

    Her and Prince in 85 was very real apparently, I remember it being referenced in The Andy Warhol Dairies. (I’m likely the only one who adores Love Song— it's very Alphabet Street with her making a decent attempt at matching Cat Glover’s vibe.)
