  1. Weird that we all prayed for a nice performance, without braids, without grills, not missing any cues, blah blah blah. She delivered everything we wanted... and the discussion is still about her implants, performance skills, body, age etc. You just want more and more and more.
  2. It will by kinda hilarious if she just performs to the NFT straighties with no livestream or socials upload, so none of her fans or gay audience will even see it.
  3. This is a very good example of how Madame X is an intelligent album and does go over the heads of people who can't see past vocal effects.
  4. You missed the point. Before Madonna, the only female headliner was Diana Ross which was decades before her. Madonna revolutionised the Super Bowl for female performers - and its thanks to her that we got Beyonce, Katy Perry, Gaga, Jlo and Shakira following in her footsteps.
  5. I think it's about expectations. Pride 2021 was hyped to the point people thought it was the launch of a new era, only to be... the performance it was. Realistically she probably didn't rehearse for it and just loosely planned to crawl for HU and vogue during IDSIF. If that was a surprise appearance at a club where she spontaneously got on stage, I think we'd all be more accepting of it. I may be wrong but wasn't the Red Rooster thing only rehearsed for 1-2 days? I'd consider that spontaneous too.
  6. People hoping for no grills and no ass? Wake up I'm expecting 2019 Pride level performance at the very least. If she is out of breath, missing cues and attempting under-rehearsed choreography after all the rehearsal pics, maybe it is all over. I think she'll surpise us though.
  7. In no particular order: Vogue, Deeper and Deeper, Into the Groove, Material Girl (with Saucy Santana), Holiday, Frozen remix, Music
  8. Anyone else hearing an updated production of Holiday in her latest Tiktok? They must be working on the Pride performance.
  9. I'm taking the news with a mountain of salt since we've heard nothing from Madonna herself, but assuming its true: I do wish she picked someone that actually looks like her, as her face and body (and sexuality) is much more important to her story and iconography than artists like Elvis, Elton or Cher. Julia is only compared to M because her hair looks a lot like the Vogue era, and because she sometimes wears red lipstick. Her eyebrows, face structure, lips, cheeks, chin, nose are all the polar opposite of Madonna's. And then if its her acting that reedeems it, why not Meryl Streep Florence Pugh? I can't stress enough how much Madeline Brewer was the clear right choice in every way, especially looks... but I can see Madonna only picking from actresses with notable fame and acclaim in 2022. Having said that, if Julia eats up her demeanor/mannerisms/delivery and choreography, I will happily suspend all disbelief.
  10. Maybe ridiculous to say on a Madonna forum, but I think a greatest hits tour is coming. She said this year that she intends to return to stadiums and I'm sure she's aware another studio album won't enable that after Rebel Heart and Madame X were downgrades to arenas and theatres respectively. The soonest I see it happening is 2026 if she starts working on once the biopic era is over, and with a stadium tour (and another infamous post-tour 3 year drought) it could be 2028. This is all assuming she will take 400 years to cast, shoot and edit the film. She may surprise us all and drop something before the biopic anyway. Madame X would be a wonderful way to end her discography, but the way she finally tapped back into her 1994-2003 creative peak, it would suck to never have a follow up. I agree she still needs to dedicate an album theme to ageing.
  11. The Mother of Technology one sounds so much like her 1992/Erotica voice?
  12. The black/brown NYC gay community, no? When did it turn into trans? It's politically incorrect and offensive to many, sure... but is it wrong? It's yet another nuanced topic - the gay men who end up transitioning tend to have physical and behavioural traits that resemble the stereotypical 'female' gender role, while the straight men who transition mostly have to actively learn new behaviours (ie makeup, nails, behaviour, posture, vocalising, hobbies and interests) and persue things that wouldn't otherwise come naturally to them in order to perform the gender role effectively. In fact, that is what a lot of the culture is centred around. To say this is "like black-face" ("used predominantly by non-Black people to portray a caricature of a Black person") is just a controversial observation. I'm not in defense of his comment/s but as I've said, anyone using "transphobe/terf" lightly needs to have an objective understanding of the nuances of the topic first - and denying any similarity or validity in that observation screams biased and detached from reality.
  13. I don't think so. Firstly, her stance (or lack thereof) on extreme radical trans activism has nothing to do with trans or LGB individuals and their respective communities. As for actual trans people, there is very much a generational divide between the rational and levelheaded (pre-2010s) and what we have now. Most older trans people will agree that the cult-like self ID/neopronoun/endless sexualites/gender conformist/witch-hunting women mentality that has taken over is unhealthy, delusional and regressive. Reminder that JK focuses on the latter issues and not trans people themselves. Not to mention the modern culture of self ID has become a trend for vulnerable neurodivergent (cis) teens, a tool of conversion therapy for gender-non-conforming (cis) gays and lesbians of all ages, as well as an opportunity for (cis) men to scam their way into the LGBT community for personal gain, oppression points and/or raping lesbian women. People who work to prevent those problems are labelled TERFs and yet none of these people are trans. I encourage anyone flinging 'transphobe/terf' around, especially towards people like JK to really educate themselves on the topic and form their own opinion, outside of social media and virtue signalling propaganda.
  14. My post detailing everything wrong with the design was before I found out who made it. What now?
