    I did see one online that looked like it a bit but I didn't post it because I do not know if Madonna is cool with all pictures of her mother being shared on the internet.

    I wonder if she is trying to have her mother's hairstyle in that do that she hasn't changed in awhile?
  4. My flip comment is I remember how many times I heard male vocalists try to sound like Eddie Vedder and I was bothered by it. I haven't paid much attention to radio in last 15 years lol but I listened to to 3 seconds of it the other day and heard a woman singing in that vocal fry and immediately switched it off. It sounds that way to me anyway but yeah Im like I heard this already and I probaly never heard the song before.
  5. I love the compliment coming from someone whose words are everything. ❤
  6. Goldie working with Madonna would have been fun. I love it when artists I love work together.
  7. Well of course we can only go by what she portrays or shows. That is why I often say "I think" or "it seems."

  9. In your paragraph that begins "as for the sexy," does that equally apply for men and women?
  10. You know I agree with Sharon a bit on this. I want to be careful though on holding up one image of an older woman as the "image" that all older women must strive for. Helen Mirren could just be "being Helen Mirren." She is being herself and that is what is most attractive about anyone. Being proud of who they are. I am not sure if Sharon is saying Helen Mirren is the template for older women or if she is saying she is proud of herself and that's why she admires her. "I am thinking" the latter is what Sharon is saying and if so I would agree that I am not sure Madonna is being completely true to herself. What I agree with is "Madonna is a victum of her own ageism," or fight against ageism. It's complicated. It's very very complicated. Madonna has never accepted unfairness. She has always fought against it. Nature is unfair to women. Ultimately it is unfair to everyone but it begins with women while they still have many years before them. Madonna fought unfairness that could be moved. Nature can not be moved. So the fight seems futile....or is the fight to see people for who they are on the inside? The soul/ spirit is forever, the body isn't. This is where Madonna confuses me and where I think she loses the plot. I believe she believes this but her actions suggest otherwise. I think she is caught in between rebelling against the unfairness towards women and empowering her strong belief in one's own spirit. The less spiritual we become the more power the physical mindset has and ageism will thrive. Feminism has in some ways hurt the lives of older women because of the unmovable physical unfairness towards women. I think the feminist side to Madonna's art has been lost on the "so called liberal minded" youth culture of today. Everything Madonna exposed about the use of women is celebrated. They love younger "beautiful" women and women in thier 90s. We now live in a society where women can be discarded with no repercussion. Guy Ritchie went on his merry way and Madonna gets scrutinized for taking a bath and having a thought. I think Madonna is trapped by her need to rebel. Does she show ageism against older men out of revenge for what society allows them to do mostly unscathed? I like to say my concern for Madonna not my problem with Madonna because my problem is not her problem. My concern for her is I do not think she is being or is showing true authenticity to herself. I have heard it in her music still thank goodness but have seen kind of a empty life besides her relationship with her children which I am sure she has not let go of as she seems to have done with her love live and public life. I do agree with Sharon but I think she is a victum of rebelling against ageism which in itself can look like ageism. It's complicated.

  12. Postmodernism In art, postmodernism refers to a reaction against modernism. It is less a cohesive movement than an approach and attitude toward art, culture, and society. Its main characteristics include anti-authoritarianism, or refusal to recognize the authority of any single style or definition of what art should be; and the collapsing of the distinction between high culture and mass or popular culture, and between art and everyday life. Postmodern art can be also characterized by a deliberate use of earlier styles and conventions, and an eclectic mixing of different artistic and popular styles and mediums. I am not familiar with Grace Jone's work. I have to be pulled in by an artist and she never pulled me in. Kinda like Bowie which annoys me. What's wrong with me? I can however have the opinion that artists are inspired whether they choose to showcase that inspiration or not. They are all inspired. The best artists attach their own feelings to something that inspired them and elevate the thought behind it to another level....another way of thinking about it. What is the intention of the artist? Is it admiration, validating a feeling, a commentary, mocking?? Copying to me is to do something exactly like another with no other intention but to do just that. No thought behind it, no feeling. Brings nothing to the table.

    Isn't it called a "zoom" party? Steven Klein is also a filmmaker. I am not convinced. For the most part I honestly do not think Madonna's instagram is a reflection of her real life when it comes to posts about herself.
