Would bugger off and retire for good? Their 'music' is utter shite and out of touch with anyone under 85!

StainlessSteelBegonia Sun 10-Nov-13 20:25:47

I feel the same way about Miley Cyrus, and she's only just started! grin

RevelsRoulette Sun 10-Nov-13 20:28:38

Maybe people over 85 like to listen to music too and they like it. grin

Imagine how dull it would be if there was only one type of music.

I think they're crap too btw, I'm not saying this cos I'm a fan. But I do love blues and rock and classical and jazz and pop and even the odd rap song (although I'd never admit it to the kids wink and there's no such thing as music that nobody likes.

Well, maybe Brian the Singing Miner, but apart from that...

Yanbu. I get irritated when people go on about how clever Madonna is for reinventing herself. She's changed clothes, had her hair cut and put on a different hat. Well done.

bellablot Sun 10-Nov-13 20:30:15

And cover their wrinkly, skinny, over tanned legs, fgs, I don't want to see it. Yes retire you old hags. Did you put Madonna on your list? All that leotard wearing, crutch thrusting shite is getting oh so boring.

bellablot Sun 10-Nov-13 20:31:19

Crotch, although she should have a crutch she's auld enough now!

IslaValargeone Sun 10-Nov-13 20:32:32

I'm not a fan of any of them, particularly don't like Celine's style of music, but by 'eck she can hold a tune.

RevelsRoulette Sun 10-Nov-13 20:32:44

I blame madonna for the fact that practically no female singers ever wear clothes these days. grin She started it with her cone tits, her stripping off and those bloody stupid leotards she started wearing hmm

I feel like their album adverts should be along the lines of "one copy of this CD will provide a singer with enough money to buy a pair of trousers that will keep their arse from hanging out for 24 hours..."

Love it Revels

IslaValargeone Sun 10-Nov-13 20:35:46

Madonna is so boring but it hasn't quite registered with her yet.
Does she really think people will be shocked if she says 'fuck' on stage hmm
The Sex Pistols were doing that 30+ years ago. Get over it love.

Strumpetron Sun 10-Nov-13 20:40:20

I like Cher.

Madonna just needs to sod off. I've never liked her voice anyway, I honestly don't think the woman can sing she's just had good songs and good marketing.

SheRaHasTheAnswer Sun 10-Nov-13 21:09:36

Celine was wearing the best dress I have ever seen, and she looked classy in it!
Madonna: Well, I can't say anything nice so......

GoshAnneGorilla Sun 10-Nov-13 21:21:51

Yes, women should not allowed to be old in public. How dare they!? hmm

I'll put myself firmly on Team Not Calling Women Old Hags.

AntlersInAllOfMyDecorating Sun 10-Nov-13 21:25:02

Is there a particular reason you have singled out older women artists?

Heartbrokenmum73 Sun 10-Nov-13 21:25:54

Jealousy, methinks, Antlers.

FreudiansSlipper Sun 10-Nov-13 21:28:22

why should they sod off

celine has an amazing voice, cher well a great voice and has always been individual and Madonna is the most powerful woman in the music industry and has been for the last 25 nearly 30 years, she has lead the way and continues to do so. i hope she is still on stage at 80 without listening to all those who have been saying for the last 20 odd years she should give up

Why only older women? Can't we get rid of Cliff, McCartney and the Stones as well?

Gileswithachainsaw Sun 10-Nov-13 21:30:14

They are by no means worse than the shit that passes for music these days Miley rhianna any X factor winner

mrsjay Sun 10-Nov-13 21:31:45

Cher is a plastic faced legend grin Celine does a ballad like nobody else and Madonna is very powerful, why should the bugger off they still have loads of fans and people still want to see them , and i am sure celine is my age THAT IS NOT OLD ,

AntlersInAllOfMyDecorating Sun 10-Nov-13 21:32:29

Yes, heaven forbid older women endure in an industry dominated by the constant judgement of the female form - by both sexes. For God's sake cover them up and wheel them away.

custardo Sun 10-Nov-13 21:32:39

anyone who only releases an album at xmas should be shot

yes cliff thats you

monicalewinski Sun 10-Nov-13 21:33:28

I heart Cher!

Lighthousekeeping Sun 10-Nov-13 21:34:01

Celine has just signed up for another Vegas stint. 100 million so she clearly has an audience. She also seemed very nice on interview. It's not my kind of music but I don't think she can be compared to Madonna who I've always been a fan of. None of them get on my nerves. I don't feel right slagging them off. What are we supposed to do beyond 45? Crawl into a box?

Strumpetron Sun 10-Nov-13 21:34:20

Paul McCartney can do one as well.

I can name quite a few 'younger' artists who I'd gladly wipe off the charts too. Miley Cyrus, Rihanna, Justin Bieber...

mrsjay Sun 10-Nov-13 21:34:25

I am sick of seeing the rolling stones being hailed as some sort of gods they are much much MUCH older than the women you are on about and they look like they have been dug up but they have fans who worship them,
