  1. Snooze. I don't know why the media panders to this woman.

  2. but not of her support for the gays?

  3. What a strange time we live in where women in their 50's like Madonna and Demi Moore think they need to look like a 20 year old high school girl to be current or desirable to me it looks just bad. Just caught Madonnas new music video, I think it proves my point. Be elegant, age gracefully...please.

  4. So she's not aging gracefully? She looks pretty good to me. I'm 54 and I say, go Girl!

  5. Never have understood why she's considered such a gay icon...maybe because I'm not crazy about her music. Oh well...

  8. In the first clip, she says about Nicki and MIA, "They are unique and have individual voices." Now she doesn't care for Lady Gaga, but she'll collaborate with Nicki, MIA, and Britany Spears. I think she's on the wrong side of talent.

  9. I have lost interest in her music over the years, was baffled by the whole British accent thing, and actually know from experience that she can be kind of an unpleasant person (that can be said of most people who are that driven), but I can't understand why she's the center of so much negative feedback here. You'd think she was politically aligned with Ann Coulter. Jeez.

    I am just amazed at the vitriol lately.

    And, Vern, I think Madonna and Demi look great. What the hell do you think people in their 50s should look like? How old are you?

    If Madonna was wearing her Like a Virgin or True Blue getups these days you may have a point. But she looks completely appropriate befitting a pop diva her age. Do you complain about the clothes Mick Jagger, Bono and Bruce Springsteen wear?

  11. I think many dislike her for a variety of reasons but primarily because she lacks any real talent other then being able to market, remarket and re-market herself. Think about it. Ten years after she fades from the limelight will you be able to recall and/or sing one song she has ever released? Many gays clung to her because she saw, used and dupped them into being her a base to make money and become infamous but she has never really helped the plight of gay people. Yes, she openly kissed another women but she did that for publicity's sake, for shock value and the financial attention the act would draw to her.

    She was the only openly female "icon" of a generation which produced few if any classic singers or actresses. No matter what film she acted in she was always panned by the public and the critics. She is little more than a pop singer, someone who knows how to promote a popular repetitive tune. She's a known meglomanic, control freak and has left a wake of detractors throughout her career. As history goes she will be noted as a blip in the music industry and not in a good way.

    You'll forgive me, of course, for I hope I'm not being too tough here. ;-)

  12. OS2GUY.

    She's been around for 25+ years and has an incredible body of pop singles that are classics--hello, Holiday, Into the Groove, Like a Virgin, Material Girl, Borderline, Papa Don't Preach, La Isla Bonita, Open Your Heart, Live to Tell, Like a Prayer, Express Yourself, Vogue, Take a Bow, Secret, Ray of Light, Frozen, Music, Hung Up. I'm sure most people who know pop music know these songs. Not to mention her iconic music videos.

    Um, Elvis Presley was just a pop singer who could promote a popular repetitive tune and we still remember him. I think history has already shown she will be remembered alongside Elvis, Michael Jackson, and Prince as one of the great pop stars.

    I don't love everything she does, but I feel that the Madonna hate is the new straight acting. We just need to prove "we're not that kind of gay." Can we hate someone more deserving like Katy Perry?

  13. "Ten years after she fades from the limelight will you be able to recall and/or sing one song she has ever released?"

    I'm not a huge fan at all, I have almost zero interest in her as a personality and I'm totally tired of the gay = Madonna fan thing, but c'mon, the woman has been involved in some really terrific records: Like a Virgin, Material Girl, In to the Groove, Papa Don't Preach, Vogue [lost track of her at that point until >] Ray of Light (my favorite), Beautiful Stranger and Music spring to mind.

  14. @Alejandro: You're arguing with a guy who thinks that gay characters can only be played by gay actors. Don't waste your time... not exactly a real deep thinker.

  15. Alejandro, Demi doesn't look great. She looks the opposite of great. She is anorexic and allegedly drug-dependent and existing on an energy drink for nutrition. She is the opposite of the picture of health - at her or any age.

    Posted by: UWSGUY | Feb 1, 2012 1:31:32 PM

  16. I have no idea what Demi looks like right this second post Ashton, but she looked pretty good in those Ann Taylor ads she was in last year.

  17. im just not sure what Good comes from making a point of letting everyone know that you dislike madonna.

    i've listened to her music for as long as I can remember. She's contributed an incredible amount to the catalogue of great american music.

    my gay ass has always loved Madonna, and hearing Ray of Light at age 16 inspired me to Come Out.

    How well has "not liking Madonna" served some of you gay men? truly.

    Os2Guys comments are weird. for someone who claims to care so much about Gay this and Gay that, you have to wonder why when you click "about me" on his own page you get jackoff material called "Amateur Straight Guys"

    call me crazy, but i thought us gay guys liked other gay guys...

  18. Not a gay rights supporter.. ex madonna fan.

    Posted by: steve | Feb 1, 2012 1:39:29 PM

  19. At a point with these women it would be interesting to see the real woman inside them.Rather than the youth obsessed "ion" You can be over 50 and look good with out looking like you can't move on from the that past image of your self.

    Alejandro I am also 50's and do not in any way think the material girl looks good. In many recent getups as you call them,she seems to vacillate between May West and Britney Spears As far is what she should look like herself of course what ever that is.

    But really beauty is in the eye of the enjoy her.

  20. Funny Irony Of The Day: gay men who hate Madonna for "not doing enough for Gay Rights" who, for some reason, have no problem voting Republican.

    riiiiight. ;-)

    *massive eye-roll*

    every generation sees the same argument from lame-ass insecure homosexual males.

    ""i'm not one of those gays who likes Madonna!"
    "i'm not one of those gays who likes Lady gaga!"
    "I'm not one of those gays who likes Kylie!"
    "I'm not one of those gays who likes Cher!"
    "I'm not one of those gays who likes Barbra Streisand!"
    "I'm not one of those gays who likes Dame Shirley Bassey!"
    "I'm not one of those gays who likes Judy Garland!"

    no, you're just one of those gays who feels a need to let people know that you're not like "__________" because you have no sense of security in any form of gay identity. You're still living each day trying to tell people what you think you're Not.

    what a lame way to live.

  21. @ENDO
    You got that wrong!

    Posted by: Vern Dufford | Feb 1, 2012 1:54:07 PM

  22. "Can we hate someone more deserving like Katy Perry?"

    And once again we have the gay equivalent of two drunk straight dudes arguing about the Yankees and Red Sox. I think that's sad, female pop singers as tribal marker, but whatevs.

    Posted by: Henry Holland | Feb 1, 2012 1:54:45 PM

  23. Henry, I think divas as tribal markers is a great gay tradition. You should hear some opera queens go off on the Callas vs. Tebaldi thing. It's all in good fun. Katy Perry though I despise. Despise. Cherry chapstick fauxbian whipped cream titted firework(s?) but willing to tell an ex UR So Gay that she is.

    Little Kiwi . . . xoxoxoxo :)

  24. END OF SUBJECT...Henry your right.

    Posted by: Vern Dufford | Feb 1, 2012 1:59:02 PM

  25. 'Take a Bow" - probably my all-time favorite. Others have been fun, too, even the one I sprained my ankle to during a dance contest in the 80's (or was that the Pointer Sister's "I'm So Excited"? So long ago...). But my point is, I find her extremely annoying, personality-wise. Not a fan. If you are, well, it's a free country. I don't think that ought to make me the enemy of all things gay. I don't think personal preference equates with self-hating or trying to appease the straights. Even with all of my Bette Midler CD's, and actually having enjoyed the two concerts I attended (25 years passing between them), I don't worship her. Stars may occasionally brighten my humdrum life, but I don't depend on them or find my purpose in them.
