  1. I can't say I completely disagree that it gets used too much to defend her by her fans. While I often think that judgement she gets is harsher than what's actually deserved, I won't sit here and try to say she's not made questionable decisions and that she hasn't done things in the last few years that probably should've been better thought about. My point as a whole, as I've tried to make in my back and forth with the original poster, is that to take this incredibly real issue and use it to simply slight a pop star they don't like is stupid.
  2. Sis no, as you can see I have gone to great lengths to not make this about Madonna as some people have. No, my strong opinion on this comes from the fact that my mother was forced out of the job she loved (she was a show host for a home shopping network called Jewelry Television) when she hit 40 and replaced with a younger host for this exact reason: because she was getting older and that mattered so much. The fact is that it isn't my place to judge somebody for what they choose to do with their life and if that means living a young life style when they're older, then good on them. If they're able to do it and feel comfortable and confident enough in themselves to do it then then they should be free to do it. Free to do it without having to worry about people coming behind them just to demean them and make them feel bad because they're doing what they enjoy and what they choose to do at an older age. Besides it isn't even exclusive to Madonna. It's happening to Gaga and Katy already and both of them are still in their 30s. Hell it's even been happening to Britney.

    I'm convinced they're doing it just because they know it pisses people off at this point

    I like the chorus alright but the verses really, really ruin it for me. I'm fine if a song is chaotic but I'd at least like to be able make some sense of the chaos and with Aura I just can't. The verses are so full of random sound and bad mixing and I just can't handle it.

    I don't know what I was expecting to see opening this thread but I'm relieved it was just this
  8. First of all, it's not up to anybody to decide what's "age appropriate" for a grown ass adult (unless of course what they're doing is immoral or illegal). Second of all, work is work. If it was a teen movie and I'm in my 60s, sure why not? Teen movies tend to have adult characters in them and are typically written and made by adults. Thirdly, if a stripper wants to strip at 60, go them. People tend to go to a strip club to look at a hot body and someone at 60 can still be in fantastic shape if they've taken care of themselves. Finally, no girl you really shouldn't change your whole fucking life just because you age. 60's not a sell by date, you don't have to completely change your way of living. If you're able bodied and of sound mind to keep doing what you've always done at your 60s, why the fuck would you want to stop? It's one thing if you're no longer physically or mentally able, but quite another if you are physically and mentally able. All you're doing is contributing to a genuine issue that affects countless people across the world professionally and mentally every single day. And for what? To make a drag at a pop star you don't like?

    It's a vastly underrated album, yes but I wouldn't call it pop perfection. With a different track list it could be. She pushed some of the best songs to the deluxe only which left room form so absolute shit to poke though (looking at you Big Fat Bass and How I Roll). It is my favorite post-breakdown album and it's one of her most purely fun and enjoyable but just short of being perfect.

    B2B is a must from start to finish but if you HAD to just do a few it’d be Ain’t No Other Man, Hurt (which is non-negotiable, listen to it), Slow Down Baby, Candyman, Enter the Circus/Welcome, and Oh Mother. imo Lotus is pretty skippable. People love Your Body but it’s not really like her best or anything. Liberation has good songs but the way it’s structured kinda asks to be listened to as an album, taking a few songs out on their own makes for an awkward listening experience.

    I mean yeah it's sad it's not doing better, but it's a big step in the right direction!
  14. Mr. Mendes

    I mean she doesn't really try to. She's never really been one to get out and promote all that much and do things to get her songs up there. She's always been more album focused anyway.

    I was unaware artists were still doing calendars tbh
  16. I get that to a point but at the same time if we always make it about Madonna, the argument itself just becomes another stan battle rather than a legitimate concern.
  17. I would be willing to bet money on the fact that if someone asked her what it was like working with Coldplay and Ed Sheeran, she'd respond with "Did I work with them?"

    While I prefer Onyx Hotel as an overall show, DWAD has a better opening.

    Many for me unfortunately. I to a point sometimes understand why it's so loved but at the same time I don't get it whatsoever. It's always rested toward the bottom of the pile for me personally, but like I said I can see in places why it holds the power it does for so many people.
  22. I honestly think it's because it was so out of left field and calculated that it left a bad taste in people's mouths. Xtina had made a habit out of doing something a little differently with each project, but it never came off like she was doing something because it was popular...until NMT. The song isn't as bad as it's reputation holds, but it's rather soulless and it's clearly trying to capitalize on the electro trend of it's time. It's not a bad song, but it is one of the weaker tracks on an underrated album.

    I'm just glad to see I'm not the only person on earth that likes Elastic Love
