  1. That was actually pretty sweet!

    I felt the love of an homage...not a desperation. Refreshing.

    Don't stop, indeed!

  2. I wonder if MTV would allow two male pop stars - say Adam Levine and Jay Z - to have a grinding hoedown together like Miley and Madonna. Somehow, I doubt they'd allow it.

    Just goes to show that there's a homophobic double standard in the music industry, one which Towleroad appears to promote. Sorry, Towleroad, but you are failing to point out homophobic double standards such as the one exploited by Miley and Madonna.

    It's time that Andy Towle stopped claiming to represent the GLBT community.

    Let the hate commence now.

  8. @BRIAN -- Your mouth called. It wants you to make room for your other foot.

  9. Why did this performance, like so many others of theirs, have to be "sexualized" with all the grinding?! Can't the songs just stand on their own merits and performance be about something other than simulated sex? Adele anyone?

  10. Hey Stu,

    -you didn't have to watch
    -you could have changed the channel
    -have you never grinded? sorry for you.
    -grinding isn't sex (only in YOUR mind)
    -grinding is fun (for some)
    -the songs do stand on their own merits
    do you want them both to just stand there like Mariah Carey and just sing and not move?
    -don't compare Adele to these 2
    -go watch Adele then.

  11. There is a double standard as to what is acceptable for two women versus two men but I haven't seen any way that MTV or Andy or Towleroad has endorsed or promoted it.

    Brian, you need to keep your powder dry to use against our real enemies.

  12. As usual, that woman-hating comment comes from Jason just using one of his many names.

  13. Marc, I don't think he watched-you can tell from the pictures and the fact it's two of the most attention seeking pop stars around at the moment who use sex ALL the time to sell music and themselves.

  14. I don't think it was homophobic or even over sexualized (it's Madonna and Miley, there could have been any number of nipples out!) I just think it was bad. Bad bad bad. Madonna can't sing and ages herself by trying too hard to look cool (a grill on your dentures, really?!?!) it was just a desperate idea of a performance.

  15. That was actually really fun. They both look fantastic and like they're having a blast. Regarding tone, the two songs don't mash that well, but lyrically, they're perfect together. Good for them!

  16. Fun and trashy...these two are always a beautiful train wreck thats hard to look away from. Silly pop..with positive vibes..

  17. I'm a huge fan of Madonna. Let's get that out of the way.
    However, this is definately her blue period, as in truly depressing. Feel like she's completely off brand and sinking into the mess that is today's version of entertainment. Walls have doors. Keep your focus , girl!

  18. I thought it was really fun. The "sexualized" bumping and grinding wasn't, really. It was mock-sexy, the equivalent of Miley's protruding tongue. It's not meant to really be erotic.

  19. I thought it was very touching that a grandmother would spend time with her granddaughter on stage for a performance.

    Seriously, I think standing next to someone as young as Miley makes Madonna look so OLD.

  20. OK, I watched 1m30s, blurgh, neither of these two is remotely appealing. What is this thing with the cowboy look? It ain't gonna happen. Although I suppose that Madonna's channeling Johnny Depp here. Have a little dignity, I'm going with Adele. At least she doesn't smell (or sound) of desperation.

  21. the grandmother job is tired... she's not a grandmother... none of her children have had children yet. Stop being ageist... and sexist.

  22. I didn't think I would, but I liked it.

  23. O Gays! O Gays! True to your gaze.
    Do you see your wrinkles through the haze?
    You too will someday be shunned for your grays,
    and for your deeds and joys you will be razed.
    And when you are secretly desperate for praise
    you will find your wicked young brothers and sisters laze,
    Basking in the ephemeral glory of their days
    In the sun without a hint of it all being a phase. And a very short one at that.

    Madonna. Always making people who are uncomfortable with themselves even more uncomfortable! Hooray.
