Back in 1983, Madonna burst on to the scene with her song Borderline. The song made her Internation star, so you would think that she would never destroy it and leave it just as it has always been.
Yesterday, on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon she performed her first huge hit and it was horrendous. She slowed it down and lowered the accompanying music to the point that you could hear her singing voice. There are a lot of things that Madonna is as a performer and having a great singing voice is not one of them. She was able to hide that fact throughout her career behind the music, but here you can hear it. Which I would’ve forgiven for her, if she didn’t take all the joy out the song.
I actually listened to this performance all the way through, hoping it would get better but it never did. It had me losing my mind half way through. I kept praying she was going to do what Ike and Tina Turner did with Proud Mary. You know start off slow and finish it off fast, but she never did.
I don’t know why she did with this Borderline. I’ve seen her in concert a few times, and she has been great. But this intimate performance sucked more than well, you know where I am going with that.
I get it, she is ageing and she wants the song to age with her. Then why is she so desperate to look, act and dress young? But that is a whole other rant.
So Madonna, please leave your old hits along and just screw up your new songs.
Oh and what is up with her stealing Gwen Stefani’s fashion sense.
Finally, you can listen to her original version of Borderline below to cleanse yours ears.
Madonna is a sad because her son Rocco would rather live with his dad than her. So yesterday in Melbourne she dressed up as a clown and sang the depressing Broadway tune, Send In the Clowns. I don’t know what is scarier, her singing the song or how she looks dressed up as the circus attraction. I say both together prove why kids and adults have nightmares from something that is supposed to bring us joy.
Madonna shared a topless photo of herself holding a horsewhip getting her horses, as she says, ready for the show. By the looks of the horses’ faces, just like us, they don’t want to see that. Her back is so muscular that it isn’t sexy at all. So imagine what she looks like from the front? Let’s not.
When Madonna sings Material Girl she has her backup dancers throw a long thin veil on her; and during a recent show in Bangkok, I think she regretted that decision. That’s because it got caught on her and as they were pulling it off, it almost knocked her over. Somehow she was able to maintain her balance as she eventually helped them get that lace material off of her unscathed. Embarrassed and pissed, but unscathed. You would think after The Brits, she would’ve learned not to have her backup dancers pull things off of her. Guess not. Maybe now she did, but I doubt it.
Madonna had someone take a photo of her from above as she was getting ready for a concert in Bangkok; and I think we can all agree this is not a good look for the singer.
At first, I thought it was her son Rocco before I read the caption saying it was her. Which now has me wondering who Rocco looks like because I always thought he was Guy Ritchie’s mini-me; but now I am thinking he might be hers. Who do you think their son looks more like?
