Just watched Madonna's Sticky and Sweet Tour, am life long Madge fan after seeing her for the first time on Live Aid.

Anyway, although it was pretty spectacular with all the dancing and stage set etc etc, there was far too much imho of HER trying to be sexy and wild and unexpected.

Wide legged on stage rubbing across her vage several times like full on masturbation, snogging girls, beef curtain reveiling knickers, bellowing out things like YOU AIN'T GOT WHAT I GOT whilst showing us a buttock and MY SUGAR IS RAW about 50 times.

I'm NOT saying put it away love your a Mother and your 50, I AM saying that she used to more schock tastic revolutionary chic not trampesque and harsh and so overtly trying to say LOOK AT ME ME ME.

I'm no prude and still flash my baps on the odd occasion but it was all too odd to watch, where has the reald Madge gone and will she please stop fiddling with her fanny, we have seen it enough!

Do you know what I mean?

The woman has become a pathetic parody of herself. YANBU.

AirPieandWindyPudding Thu 09-Jul-09 23:19:18

Hasn't she been trying too hard for about the last 18 years...?

I think she's talented and interesting but obviously absolutely desperate to be cool and sexy and shocking - and I do wonder where it will end. Will be still be seeing her waving her flaps when she's 75? I mean her right to do that if she wishes but it is an odd spectacle. And in my book anyone who is into weird commercialised religions is not cool, never can be.

YANBU. She is. [cat's bum mouth]

BitOfFun Thu 09-Jul-09 23:20:25

Although I disagree that she has never been quite so Me Me Me. It just looks tired now though.

Oooh interesting, the concert was from Argentina and the crowd looked full of mostly hot gay men, lean, tanned, dark, delicious....sorry I digress.

But why is it gay men love her so much? They don't want women they want men, so why worship a women who is so overt with he female sexuality, it can't turn them on surely?

BitOfFun Thu 09-Jul-09 23:30:28

It's the theatricality surely? I'm sure people have written theses on the elements of gay iconography. It passes me by too, but I'm sure there are interesting reasons.

I don't think it is anything to do with age. I mean, it is undignified tbh and a bit sleazy.
it does look like a very entertaining show though and I think anyone in the audience would have had a fantastic time. she is a consummate performer

silverfrog Thu 09-Jul-09 23:33:09

I do agree with tthe general consensus, but went to see her live last weekend, and it was a bloody good show

BettyTurnip Thu 09-Jul-09 23:35:54

Actually, I would like to say "Put it away love, you're a mother and you're 50." grin

BitOfFun Thu 09-Jul-09 23:38:09

She could be a granny. And she is definitely consumated grin

Well I'm 37 and the urge to wank in public has long passed.

<not sure if it was ever there wink>

TheLadyEvenstar Thu 09-Jul-09 23:44:07

LMAO no my desire to wank in public never was there in the first place and I am 34.....Laurie you think we missed out??

LaurieFairyCake Thu 09-Jul-09 23:45:12

really, really.....not grin

TheLadyEvenstar Thu 09-Jul-09 23:58:36

Ugh! Wouldn't have wanted to see that if she was 20, let alone 50.

I personally don't get the hype about Madonna, I really don't. She's not a great singer and she's not the best looking woman in the world, is she? I mean, yeah, she looks great for her age etc. but I'm not really keen.

I found it hilarious to watch
From the first moment she presented herself on the stage it was like what?! It was OTT, coming down on a chair with her legs wide open in a sick way. Ridiculous really but was quite amusing so can't really complain. Yanbu though.
Her skipping was quite good, was impressed she can double dutch aged 50 so i'll give respect only for that.

To be fair, maybe the "my sugar is raw" is a reference to her love of organic, natural products?

You wouldn't expect Madge to have boring old refined white sugar.

And, actually, we don't "got what she's got", unless you also have a million dollar fortune and a number of houses, plus a selection of children from varying fathers/countries.

So at least she is accurate, if rather shouty.

I went to see her live last week & she was fantastic!
At the end of the day thats Madonna & thats who she is like it or not & if you don't dont watch the show..

Nancy66 Thu 16-Jul-09 19:21:16

I saw her a few years ago when she was wearing the leotard...way too much flap

JRocks Thu 16-Jul-09 19:31:05

YANBU - Madonna's all gusset these days, it makes me feel a bit queasy

sazzerbear Thu 16-Jul-09 19:34:20

There's no doubt she is very talented regardless of how well she can sing etc.
However, times have moved on and people aren't shocked anymore also it's not appropriate for someone of her age to be flashing her ladygarden, it's just sad!

Oh I don't know, Michael Jackson was also 50 odd wasn't he and if he'd done those gigs, he'd have been grabbing his cock endlessly.

Not saying that's a good thing, there's something extremely tired and rather silly about old people jumping around feeling their bits on stage as if they've only just discovered them and are as excited by them as they were 30 years ago - one does rather feel as if they ought to have discovered other interests over the years - but what's sauce for the goose I suppose...

Know what you mean but MJ grabbing his cock never seemed the same to me as someone like Madge doing it!
