Madonna gets crucified each night of her new tour, and all I can say is it’s about time. Why didn’t anybody think of this sooner? Now, those of you who know Me, know that I would throw in a little shock value from time to time. Remember when I said I didn’t come to bring peace, but a sword? I make sure parties have the alcohol flowing. Hookers wash My feet with their hair at get-togethers. I spit in the dirt and rub it in people’s eyes. I flip tables. I know a thing or two about shock value… and I’ve seen enough wannabe preachers in My time to know desperation through shock value when I see it. You ever have some religious freak tell you that “fags go to Hell”? To Me, that’s kinda like being fake crucified on a mirror ball cross with a microphone… meaning it’s more lame than righteous culture shock.
With one desperate “lesbian” kiss to Britney, Madonna blew away her gift of being culturally relevant and it is depressing to see her attempt to reclaim her past glory. You would think being crucified on a mirror cross might be a little shocking, but she used to disturb the world more by simply dancing through burning crosses and kissing black priests. She has crossed the line… not of offending, but for her, much worse… she has crossed the line where nobody cares. This feels like a flailing attempt to grasp onto anything that might rattle ones nerves, but it only looks like someone flailing to not fall on their face.
That being said, that song “Hung Up” is amazing! Throwaway pop that makes Me wiggle every time I hear it. She has a knack for these songs, and I will defiantly stand by My claim that “Music” was one of the best albums of 2000. Most of you have probably already heard this, but this Death Cab For Cutie Vs. Madonna Remix is killer.
