  1. A lot of people are difficult and demanding in the world. If you don’t take it personally you are fine. I very much doubt she is like that the majority of the time. If she was people wouldn’t want to work for her.

  2. I have a feeling she will prove me wrong but I think she might need to rethink her way of presenting her music. These tours pushing her physical limits are not only harming her, I do not think they truly represent all of her work. I think she is too focused on proving how tough she is because she is getting older. She seems stuck. Innovation Madonna. You were always a champion of innovation. My opinion of course has to be said but putting that aside I hope she gets the care she needs to heal and not be in pain anymore. ? Wishing and sending her all the positive energy I can for her to be well. ❤

  3. Well, no news or leaks, just a thread to wish Madonna a speedy and nice recovery. I felt a pain in my heart with her description on the insta post. I could feel her pain showing on her facial expressions. It must not be easy for her, she's really pushing it to the limit, seems she underwent a speedy diet to be in shape physically forthe tour and the bruises and pain won't stop. We wish you well Queen! <3

  4. If I remember well, the Lucy o' Brien one is the most concentrated on music. It also has an updated edition:

  5. I think I'm too sensitive to work for Madonna. I love and admire her too much, if she were rude to me (in a non joking way ofc), I would be devastated. I don't think she's quite as difficult as most people make her seem though. I believe she's just very disciplined and hard-working

  6. Yes I could and would. I would be honoured. You learn a lot working for difficult people, they can be stressful but also very inspiring and it changes your life. I have done it with lesser mortals so Madonna would be the ultimate experience. I don’t know if she’d want to hire fans though?

  7. In my personal life I am lazy but my work ethic is very good. She would probaly like my no nonsense approach to work. No phones, no fooling around...I'm honest and often put work's needs ahead of my own. I'm respectful of management but do have a problem if they are unfair to me in anyway. The things I think would bother her about me would be that I apologize a lot, can be slow in my work...not from laziness but perfectionism. I can also be emotional. I am also very concerned with how people feel about me. I am also easily hurt by blunt criticism. I need to feel supported. I am not "late" but I also do not manage time well. I am like the tortoise. I guess it would depend on what she would hire me for because I do have some traits I think she would like.

  9. Hey Madonna, I doubt you'll read this LOL but if you happen to do so, let it be known that we all know how strong and courageous you are. I remember when you fell off your horse and broke two ribs. Nevertheless, two days or so later you were filming the Hung up video on morphine to assuage the pain. This stuck in my brain to this day. You have no need to prove anything to anyone. Please get all the rest you need and take all the meds that are necessary to come back on top form and continue to delight us as you've always have. We won't be happy if you feel bad. I wish you the best recovery and the best for 2020!

  11. I would put Something to remember on the list but I don't consider it an album. I would put Music too, but she looks like someone impersonating Madonna, as if she were somehow detached from herself, cannot explain it.

  14. I loved BS at first listen, I think M is so sexy in the video. I remember I didn't like Amazing at all when Music came out, now I like it a lot, maybe because I met a person who made me feel exactly how the song says...

  21. Anyone can recommend me some books that cover Madonna from the earlier days? I feel like it's hard to find info on the time period of the first album that seems accurate and is written not vaguely. Thanks.

  22. Madonna, I love you and respect you so much for trying to carry on and push it to the limit, but, now you MUST do this with your health above all else. Please listen to the doctors and if they want you to stop, do it so you can come back to us fully in the future. Thank you for being you and please please get better soon!!! With lots of love, hugs, and prayers, Lisa xxxxx ✨??????✨

  24. I'm sending all of my love and well wishes to Madonna! I've seen several rude posts (not on here, thankfully) from 'fans' who expect her to put their entertainment over her body. She's a 61 year old woman who has been dancing and performing for what, nearly 50 years now? Her body needs time to rest and recover and we need to respect that. She's given us so much over the past FOUR DECADES. The very least we can do is give her the time and space she needs to heal. I'm praying that all goes well and she's back to her normal self soon!

  27. 1) True blue 2) LIke a virgin 3) Erotica 4) None 5) None I've always thought that M's album covers were somehow less attractive than many of her photoshoots and that she wasn't fully exploited.

  29. Give me just three days and a large hard drive to collect all the unreleased material. Then she can fire me! But at least we'd have "First is a Kiss"! (Oh, yes, I know, maybe it's included in the forthcoming LAP 131st anniversary edition)

  30. Depends on the fan. Imagine if someone said "Your fans want your tours on a proper format. Your YouTube channel has poor quality videos. So are we getting bonuses, re-releases or nah?" She'd no doubt throw that MDNA skin vibrator at you and fire you in a second.

  32. Exactly this. I’d be fired after 2 days for pushing for the Blonde Ambition BluRay or casually suggesting her removing the butt implants.

  33. https://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/hip-hop/8477004/vibe-magazine-oral-history Mimi Valdes (editorial assistant, 1993-94; assistant editor, 1994-95; style editor, 1997-98; executive editor, 1999-2002; editor-at-large, 2002-03; editor-in-chief, 2004-06): Jonathan booked Madonna and Dennis Rodman as a cover. And Eddie Murphy’s publicist was mad as hell that Madonna was getting the cover over Eddie. We all wanted Eddie over Madonna, so we were upset about it too. When [word of the cover choice] started to get out in the industry, we all felt the need to save Vibe’s reputation. Poulson-Bryant: I said [to Jonathan], “The staff needs to have a conference. People are really not happy about this.” Van Meter: I said, “This isn't The Village Voice. We’re not unionized. You can’t come in here representing the staff.” Valdes: We were all standing by waiting for Scott to give us the go-ahead to come in. When Jonathan saw us, he got really upset. Van Meter: I felt like I was losing control. And I said [to Scott], “You’re fired.” People in the hallways started crying. Mimi Valdes was screaming as if she’d just found out her mother was shot and killed. And I was like, “Oh, my God, I made it worse.” Poulson-Bryant: He came to my office: “You’re not fired. Look, we’ll have a staff meeting.” Jones: I was staying away from editorial policy. I got involved when Jonathan put the Beastie Boys on the cover and told me he was following up with Dennis Rodman and Madonna. He had already shot it! Van Meter: I guess Quincy was getting a lot of shit from people for putting the Beastie Boys on the cover, and when he sees the Madonna cover, he went crazy. Jones: I said, “Over my dead fucking body! That’s the way you blow an urban magazine.” Van Meter: Madonna was queen. You can’t not put her on the cover. I couldn't conceive of killing the best cover story we had done so far. [Quincy and I] ended up having a fight on the phone, and I smashed my phone into a thousand pieces and cleared off the top of my desk onto the floor. I think I said, “I quit.” I went home. And then the phone calls started. Everyone tried to get Quincy to change his mind. Even Madonna called me at home. She was really pissed. Jones: I called Madonna and I said, “I’m telling you as a friend: it’s not personal, but you cannot pander with an urban magazine this early.” She said, “Quincy Jones, you and I can take over the world if we want to. See you around, pal.” I haven’t talked to her since then. Van Meter: No one could get Quincy to change his mind. Carol Smith and Robin Wolaner called and said, “Just get as much money as you can and walk away.” By the way, I think it was a terrible idea that they hired me. I look back now and realize how incredibly naive I was. Valdes: For all the criticism he got, Jonathan really established the tone and the vision for the magazine. We had a research department. We had a fact-checking department. A photo department. Our art department was top-notch. He created a beautiful magazine.

  34. The point was that they didn't want a white pop star on the cover after having a white group in it, on a black magazine. It's about representation and not anything else. They have every right to put black artists first.
