Elton John truly has not been the biggest fan of Madonna as of late. He’s made that very clear in multiple interviews and even in publicly dissing her Super Bowl halftime performance. It looks like Elton’s opinion hasn’t changed at all especially after checking out clips of her latest MDNA tour. John has some strong words for the music legend. In a recent interview with Molly Meldrum, Elton John exclaims that Madonna’s “career’s over” and even drops the “C” word on her. WOW! Here’s what he had to say about her newest album.
“If Madonna had any common sense she would have made a record like Ray Of Light and stayed away from the dance stuff and just been a great pop singer and make great pop records, which she does brilliantly,” Elton said. “She looks like a fucking fairground stripper.”
In the same interview, Elton poised some serious praise upon pop singers Rihanna, Katy Perry and of course, godmother of his son Zachary, Lady Gaga. Elton goes on to discuss how Madonna has been terrible to Gaga and explains how great Gaga is stating, no matter where she is in the world, she’ll call or text. When she’s around, she’ll come over and bath baby Zachary and sing to him. How adorable is that? Check out the video interview below.
Madonna has just released the music video for her “Turn Up The Radio” single and we’ve got your first look below. As you saw in the preview, the video is set in Florence, Italy features Madonna being chased by all of her fans.
As the video starts off, she leaves her hotel only to be bombarded by paparazzi and camera flashes. She gets into her car, hides her face, and signals for the driver to take off. As she drives away, she starts to sing about her problems until she finds some guy dancing outside and decides to take them into her car (which now has the top off). She continues to pick up more people along the way as they all pile into this party-mobile. By the end of the video, the hot driver gets out and has his pants around his ankles and Madonna and her crew drive off with out him. That’s not very nice!
I liked the idea of the video, but overall I found it kind of boring. Maybe I’m just a little tired this morning or something. Watch it below and let me know what you think.
I’ve got a couple previews for you, and since they’re both so short I decided to save you time and include them into one post. The first preview is for another song from P!nk titled, “The King Is Dead But The Queen Is Alive” and the second is for Madonna‘s new music video for “Turn Up The Radio,” which comes out on Monday.
P!nk’s song preview sounds promising, but it’s almost too short to be able to determine the feel of it. It’s worth checking out though. I think she’s gonna be coming back to the music scene with a bang with this album and I can’t wait to hear it all!
In the clip from Madonna‘s “Turn Up The Radio” music video, Madge drives around in a convertible with a bunch of hot guys while crowds of people chase after her. The video comes out on Monday. Check out the preview for this video as well as P!nk‘s upcoming track below.
If you’ve ever been to a Madonna concert, you’ll know that she often has a video that she plays where she’s trying to send a message or make a political statement. Her current MDNA tour is no exception.
The official tour backdrop video for “Nobody Knows Me” has hit the web and it’s worth checking out. Lower quality versions had previously hit the web when the tour first started, but now they’ve made the video readily available to watch online. In the video, we see Madonna morph into several different versions of herself, later focussing on political figures, hate, discrimination, and more. She even takes the time to make special mention to a few of the unfortunate bully suicides that took place over the last year.
I recently shared the “Justify My Love” interlude video from her concert with you so now check this video out and share your thoughts below.
As you know, Madonna is on her MDNA tour right now, and one of the video interludes from the tour has surfaced online – a good quality video too! The video interlude is a remixed version of “Justify My Love” made specifically for the tour.
As evident by the screenshots above, the video is all in black & white. At the beginning of the video, Madonna is running away from these creepy masked men that are laughing at her. She then makes her way into a room where she can hide. There we see Madonna sexing herself up, and at one point saying “You can f*ck with me.” It cuts between normal clips and faux security camera footage, as the exhibitionist that Madge is puts on a show for the cameras. The way she’s dressed reminds me of the Madonna from Dick Tracy.
Watch the video below and let me know what you think. Do you have tickets for the MDNA tour?
Madonna’s MDNA tour kicked off in Tel Aviv, Israel this week and the first images and video footage from her tour have hit the web. From what I’ve seen, I’m glad I didn’t buy tickets.
One of the videos included below shows Madonna in a cheerleader’s outfit singing “Express Yourself” which then mashes up into Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way,” concluding with “She’s Not Me“. The message is heard loud and clear. Now we’ve already discussed the fact that she was doing this mashup, but after watching the video, I think after this MDNA tour, Madonna should stop being so sexual in her dance moves. I get that she’s in great shape, but there comes a time to act & dance age appropriate when your 53-years-old. I think she can accomplish what she wants to accomplish without it.
The other thing that is sparking discussion is the fact that she used Nazi imagery among visuals of violence, war, political protests, and more. Despite the context, should she really be showing this in Israel? Watch both videos below and share your thoughts.
Truth be told, I haven’t listened to anything from Ingrid Michaelson since, “The Way I Am“. Loved that Lilith Fair-sounding adult contemporary hit. Since then, she’s released a couple of albums that haven’t garnered much press. Perhaps, she thought of that lack of media attention when creating her latest music video for “Blood Brothers“. What better way to grab headlines than with a buzzworthy visual, right?
In a time-lapse video, Michaelson employs hair and makeup artists Brian Hennings and Ryan B. Anthony to work their magic and transform her into famous female artists like Madonna circa “Material Girl” era, Lady Gaga, Beyonce and the late Amy Winehouse. Ingrid’s team do a solid job embodying each singer. Her transformations aren’t just limited to women either. She’s made up to look like John Lennon and KISS frontman Gene Simmons also.
Sure, her impersonations will grab attention, but they also relate to the lyrics for “Blood Brothers” as well. “We’re all the same under a different name,” she comments on the song. Watch the clip below.
Yesterday, I came across what is believed to be the audio of Madonna in a rehearsal for her upcoming MDNA tour and I just had to share it with you. Remember all of the controversy with Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” sounding extremely similar to Madonna’s “Express Yourself”? Even Madonna herself had said in an interview with GMA that “Born This Way” was “reductive”. Well, the mashup heard in this audio clip are these two songs…along with a third song: “She’s Not Me“.
Leave it to Madonna to stir the pot a little. You can’t say for sure if she’s taking a dig at Lady Gaga with the song that has lyrics like, “She’s not me and she never will be” or if she’s talking to the media. The other scenerio is that this whole audio clip could be fake, but I personally have a feeling it’s not. It’s probably just her making a statement saying, “stop comparing me to Lady Gaga”.
Give it a listen below and let me know what you think. As bitchy as it could be interpreted, it’s SO Madonna and it would totally get fans all riled up at her concert.
