Confessions Of Middle-Aged Madonna

In less than two hours, and at a premium price of over $300 a ticket, you can see Barbie, er, I mean Madonna, dressed as an equestrian (horse-back riding has replaced sex), a disco queen, and a heavy-metal rocker! This is no reality show! This is Madonna on her latest tour.....the Confessions Tour. She's doing a lot of stuff on stage, including crucifying herself on a mirrored cross. Eventhough she looks more like a Park Avenue diva getting ready to take her weekly shopping spree over at Saks than Jesus Christ, the Catholic League President issued a strong statement to her to "knock off the Christ-bashing". Of the crucifixtion, league president went on to state "I guess you really can't teach an old pop star new tricks. Poor Madonna keeps trying to shock, but all she succeeds in doing is coming across as a boring bigot". On some level, I think he might be right. How far has she really come as an artist, if she has to keep resorting to tired-old themes that have run through her career since the very beginning more than twenty years ago. She also must have seen Cher's last, never-ending tour as the Cirque du Soleil style portion was first made famous by her, and later at Celine Dion's Vegas show. Those who attended the opening night in Los Angeles had a lot of complaining to do, but not about her performance. The venue was so hot, that everyone was dripping in sweat at the end of the night. According, the Madonna's publicist, Madonna prefers to perform in "hot" conditions. Who does she think she is , Aretha Franklin??? Me thinks that Madonna is not confessing the truth. If she truly dared, she would just come out and say " Hey, I'm having hot flashes. If I'm going to sweat, so must you!"

Ms. M needs to grow up, show us the artist she may or may not be (I still wonder if she can really sing), and please...stop trying to 'shock' your audiences...that may work when you're in your 20s but not when you're pushing 50. And one more thing since I'm ranting, I used to think her 'cut' arms were a sign of someone who took care of her body, but she is looking scary (veins and muscles popping, ugh). So Madge, let yourself have a few carbs and show us a concert with NO religious symbols.

Susan, your hot flash comment made me laugh out loud. There's some sort of wonderful poetic justice in thinking someone rich and famous suffers just like us little people.

As for her need to shock, I think she's worn out her cattle prod. She's become boring and predictable. Too bad because she can be a very exciting performer.
