    That cover modernizes the movie too much I think... the gold doesn’t work, neither does the red. But this release is a special one.

    Maybe because he’s been completely hounded for years and thinks saying it wasn’t filmed will stop people asking? Also, he said he only filmed the songs he thought would fit the film, however how would he know what would fit a film that wasn’t even finished at that point? And if he already knew what songs were going to be included in the film, why did he also film Like a Prayer and Hanky Panky? And why did Madonna say she’d release the tour when she found it in the archives? I think it was filmed in its entirety personally.

    Before the digital age made physical singles a thing of the past, it was a joy and pleasure as a Madonna fan finding singles at the CD section of a store, in second hand shops, listening to the remixes of the accompanying single, the artwork and B-Sides and excluded tracks used as bonuses. I know the fanbase has its world of collectors who are knowledgeable in the different versions, editions with different artwork and rare versions of tracks released. What are some of your favorites and some your own? Tried to create a different type of thread from "If Madonna did this, what would you change" threads? Feel free to post your own stories of your collection and pics if you'd like. For me, it was always the Express Yourself run up until Rain singles that seemed to stick out to me. Seeing the brunette Madonna on Express Yourself single art, the inclusion of Supernatural on Cherish, the different mixes to Justify My Love and others. Not to mention how despite some being video shots of previous works managed to make it look iconic. See "Vogue" using an "Express Yourself" photo. I remember buying the Erotica maxi single and getting a huge poster of Madonna from a Meisel shoot included with it.

    This article has such a cool interview featured with Tracy Young. Tracy talks of how she's already won a Grammy (see why below). She talks on her mentor, Madonna, too. Tracy Young, Madonna's Favorite DJ, Is Breaking the Grammy Glass Ceiling Tracy Young has made herstory as the first woman nominated in the category of Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical at the Grammy Awards. For Young — who has spent more than 25 years in the music industry, and who was recognized for her Pride radio remix of Madonna's "I Rise" — the nomination is "overwhelming." "First of all just to be recognized, I feel like I won already," she told The Advocate in a recent interview. "If I do win, that would just be a bonus." A win for Young would also be a major victory for women and LGBTQ people. For Young's entire career in the music industry, the lesbian DJ has worked in a field dominated by mostly straight men — particularly in music production and remixing. This lack of representation reflects itself in her category. Since the Grammys first launched Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical in 1998 (that year, the trophy went to Frankie Knuckles, the "Godfather of House Music"), not a single woman has received a nod — a span of over 20 years. "It's just hard for women to break through in this industry," Young said. "It's just very male-dominated and I think always been that way." Young's commitment to her craft is one of the reasons she was able to have a breakthrough. She has worked to create remixes of hits by over 100 top artists, including Lady Gaga, Cher, Celine Dion, Britney Spears, Mariah Carey, and Madonna, with whom she has 14 collaborations. Over 50 of her tracks have reached the number 1 spot on the Billboard Club Chart Hits. "Music for me is not an option. That's the only thing I know how to do. So it has to work for me," Young said. Young points to a number of factors that need to be addressed in order to tackle this disparity at the industry level. One, those in power in the artists and repertoire department — essentially, talent scouts at music labels — need to look beyond the "usual suspects" like men in creating a remix. Mentorships are also key to breaking into this field — and one of the reasons women have been encountered hurdles to entry. Young counts one of her own mentors as key to her beating the odds. "Madonna has been a huge supporter of my music and my career," Young said. "I'm not sure if I would have been able to break in without her." "You would think in 2020 there would be more women in the forefront. It's going to take those secure men that aren't threatened by a powerful woman to hire those people," Young added. "Look at Madonna. She gets beat up all the time for being a strong woman and having a mind of her own. They don't give her an easy time, but it can be done." Madonna has been a longtime role model for Young. The pair met around 25 years ago through a mutual friend, Ingrid Casares — an out club owner and ex of Sandra Bernhard's who was memorably featured in Madonna's Sex book kissing the pop icon. At the time, Young, who got her start DJing frat parties at the University of Maryland, had been trying to find work in Washington, D.C. But all too often, she would be told by club representatives, "You're a girl. Girls don't DJ." However, Casares agreed to pass on Young's demo tape — on a cassette, in those days — to the pop icon. She did. And Madonna was impressed. "Madonna liked the girl DJ," Young said with a laugh. "Then my career just blew wide open." Young would go on to DJ the premiere party for Madonna's film The Next Best Thing and then her wedding to Guy Ritchie. The pair have been creative collaborators ever since. In fact, when it was announced Young would be receiving a Grammy nomination, Madonna texted Young. She told her she was proud of her. "She's super sweet," Young confirmed. "I know she probably doesn't want people to think she's sweet, but she's sweet." In fact, Young's remix of "I Rise" would be the only Grammy nomination featuring Madonna's name from the icon's latest album, Madame X. Although critically praised, it was snubbed by the Recording Academy — yet further evidence of bias in the music industry toward women of a certain age. Yet this bias is not contained to the straight world. Young also says members of the LGBTQ community may be unappreciative of the icon's contributions to music and the movement. "She basically opened a can of sexual freedom for the world to see," Young said. "I don't think she gets the credit for what she's done for the gay community." Of course, anyone who undercuts Madonna is ignorant of history. The Advocate ranked the "Vogue" singer as the greatest gay icon in a 2012 cover story, which chronicled her many contributions: her liberation of sexuality in pop music, her activism during the AIDS crisis when most celebrities were silent, the impact of gay visibility in her Truth or Dare tour documentary, and her ongoing fight against stigma. She won a GLAAD award for her lifelong allyship last year. It's fitting, then, that "I Rise," which Young remixed, is Madonna's love letter to LGBTQ people. “I wrote ‘I Rise’ as a way of giving a voice to all marginalized people who feel they don’t have the opportunity to speak their mind," Madonna said about its release on the eve of WorldPride last year. "This year is the 50th anniversary of Pride and I hope this song encourages all individuals to be who they are, to speak their minds and to love themselves.” For Young, the ability to collaborate with such a legend and be part of her history leaves the DJ momentarily speechless. "I couldn't be happier that it's a Madonna song that I was nominated for and to be part of her legacy. I have no words for that," she said. That her remix of "I Rise" has become a staple of Pride's playlist is also important to Young, who has spent her career spinning music at Pride celebrations around the world. "Music is Pride," Young declared, citing anthems like "You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)" by Sylvester, "I'm Coming Out" by Diana Ross, "I Will Survive" by Gloria Gaynor, and Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" as integral to festivities. She pointed to C&C Music Factory's "Pride (A Deeper Love)" as a personal favorite. "The gay community has always come together on the dance floor in celebration of music," Young said. "When we have those songs and they come on, it's like we're free." However, Young, who has had a front-row seat to Pride, from the AIDS crisis to a post-marriage equality world, has seen a disappointing change in the annual event that began with an uprising at the Stonewall Inn. "In recent years, [Pride] is more of a party and I think that we've lost sight of some of the messages that we were fighting for in the earlier days," Young said. "We've made progress, but sometimes I think the message is lost, at least from my vantage point." "I don't think people know the history anymore," she added. "We do drag, but people don't know why they do drag or where it came from. That part makes me a little sad." Happily, Young is herself now officially part of LGBTQ history. The city of Miami Beach declared December 11 to be Tracy Young Day, in celebration of the artist's contributions to the music scene of South Florida, where she presided over much of the nightlife. "I'm gonna cry. It's just amazing," Young said of the proclamation. "All the hard work is finally paying off and it's been 30 years." However, Young also recognized that success takes a village, and she expressed thanks to those who supported her throughout the years to help her rise. "You don't get to become a Grammy nominee overnight. It takes a lot of work and a lot of perseverance, especially as a woman," Young said. "And I feel like if I could think every person who has been on this journey with me to get to this point, trust me, I would." "I'm just a girl from Virginia with a love for music. And to have made history and to be Grammy nominee for a Madonna song [tells the world that] if you have a dream and you go for it, you can do it." Listen to the Tracy Young Pride remix of Madonna's "I Rise" below.

    It seems to be the only sibling she is really close to at this point. Glad to have seen her make a cameo at one of the Madame X shows in her stories. The resemblance between them all is uncanny.

    Post Madonna Quotes!

    It may not be a quote (an actual interview piece) but where she mentions her relationships with Melanie and how she's often gone to her place to escape the madness of the world and fame she deals with it and feels like a safe space. Think it was a 95/96 interview with the "You'll See" hairdo.

    I think instead of GOD CONTROL she (and Casey Spooner lol) should have written: "We've lost NET Control" It's absurd - and annoying - how all these social networks keep posting things totally detached from reality. The worst one is M's IG account, where Ricardo Gomez (if it's him) keeps posting pictures regardless. So, 5 minutes after a cancellation, you might see a new Story with M smiling and performing on stage. On the opposite side, madonna.com is the last to know and basically doesn't update any info, or they do it when it's too late and the news is out everywhere. And now - worse than ever - Live Nation announces the beginning of the London residency TOMORROW when EVERYBODY knows tomorrow is not happening. Ok, it's automatic: well, keep an eye on it. Don't they realize how unprofessional and disturbing it is? Is M aware of that?

    At this point I think it wouldn't be bad if they released a live video of IDSIF to promote the single with the remixes and the tour too. It's the only song without a video.

    For me i would consider singles: 1. Medellin (It was sent to radios + have many remixes packs sold separately through iTunes, stealing platforms etc. + sent to dj's + promoted + videoclip + a single cover) 2. Crave (radios + remixes packs sold separately +sent to dj's + videoclip + a single cover) 3. I Rise (radios + remixes packs sold separately + sent to dj's + videoclip, yes videoclip, another thing is that you don't like it becase Madonna is not on it + 12" physical release + 7" release) + single cover) 4. I Don't Search I Find (remixes packs + sent to dj's + single cover…. to me enough to consider it single) 5. God Control AS A FUTURE SINGLE (Will have a remixes pack sold separately + Will be sent to dj's + videoclip + i suppose it Will have a single cover) All this facts about the songs in separate are nothing but as a pack i think are good to make the song ¨a single' PROMO SINGLES 1. Future (sold separately with it's own cover but nothing more) 2. Dark Ballet (same as Future but with a video.. but now a days a cover and a video it's not a single) What's Batuka? a song with a video

    'Looking For Mercy' vs 'I Rise'?

    The two ending ballads on Madame X, which is your favorite? Both are amazing, but I have to go with "I Rise". I loved it right from the first listen(and dedicated it to my sister). So full of heart for rising above hardship, the impossible, and injustice. I can't wait to see what Madonna does with it on tour.

    How can it be that something that is available to buy, it's called 'promo'. Promo is a word for free things, in this case I don't search I find is there to be purchased, and more remixes will come too, so it's an official single release.

    I would say: Medellín - Official Single (April 17th) I Rise - Promo Single (May 3rd) Crave - Official Single (May 10th) Future - Promo Single (May 17th) - Had Future done well after Eurovision, it probably would have gotten full single treatment. Dark Ballet - Promo Single (June 7th) I Rise - Official Single (June 20th) - It was upgraded to official single when the video was released and remixes were commissioned. They probably saw the opportunity to profit off the 50th anniversary of gay pride. God Control - Promo Single (June 26th) - Also part of the "pride promo". I think we can call this an official single once they remixes of this are being released. So technically, I'd call I Rise / God Control a dual single. Batuka - Video Single - Just a video release and nothing else. I Don't Search I Find - Promo Single - Just a remix single. So...all in all: 1. Medellín 2. Crave Future / Dark Ballet (Promo) 3. I Rise (Remixes) Batuka (Promo) 4. God Control / I Don't Search I Find (Remixes)

    The old concept for "single" (a full release with music video, radio promo, performances, etc. each 3/4 months) is obsolete now. These days different songs are used to promote an album/project/era/artist. When any of them sticks, then the artist has a hit. Sadly not the case with "Madame X" :( You could say "Medellín" and "Crave" were the two songs pushed for radio (without success), but "Madame X" has had all these releases so far: "Medellín", "Crave", "I Rise", "Future", "Dark Ballet", "God Control", "Batuka" and "I Don't Search I Find". All of them have been promo tools for the album/project, and that's what singles were all about in the old days - and I guess they still are nowadays.

    The existing recorded mediums are as follows: VT- HD/4k possible, film (? 16 or 35mm) WTG - SD 4:3 BAT - SD 4:3 and HD:4K (35mm) GS - SD 4:3 DWT - SD 4:3 (unreleased Barcelona show presumably also same) RIT - both HD/4K 35mm film and SD 4:3 CT - HD Film 35mm S&S - HD Film 35mm MDNA - Digital HD Rebel Heart - Digital HD So a 4K is possible yet unlikely for VT, BAT, RIT, CT and S&S. Presumably also MDNA and RHT As I find it hard to believe they show digital as 1080i/p.

    So I'm kind of doing this remake of the GHV2 Thunderpuss megamix video and I want to do all the cool framework that was done in the original video. If you don't know what I mean by framework,this is what I'm talking about: I'm absolutely clueless about how to recreate that effect in any 3D rendering software. Is there any way I can recreate the effect without having to use 3D software?
