Sassy? yes. Rude? yes. Daring and faithful to the Icon they love ? Till death. I'm so SO f disappointed with some of the comments I read here. Is this community dying or like we are left we the bad leftovers? the name calling, the over the top attitude, the addiction with 1990  even tho its 30 YEARS LATER now. I'm angry, I'm disappointed and I wonder how some of you call yourselves fans. You are not fans, you just love a ghost of the past and are obsessed with not keeping up with

Sorry but this is SO extra. You can say anything about Madonna but she ALWAYS had that fuck you attitude. Just because she says that shit on stage now, it doesn't mean she's regressing mentally or she's "slaved" by the industry, you really had the audacity to call her an industry victim as if she's got destroyed and killed by fame (example is the poor Britney), just because some fans don't like her "fuck u hater I do what I want" attitude, bro are you even ok? How is that even a bad thing. She h

Ummm I don’t know what you’re talking about. Britney, as much as I love her, is pretty boring and mainstream as an artist. Madonna has always been extremely polarizing and caused extreme reactions of adoration and hatred. That’s what she wanted for herself and I’m sure she wouldn’t want it any other way. This duality has been a constant throughout her career and always existed in her fan base. I think you’re just more aware now because it’s easier for people dialogue and put their opin

This has nothing to do with being a woman, is for everyone, I'd love to see many of you acting that way when you're 63, in real life. Anyway, I guess that each and one of us loves a different angle from her and is an endless discussion. 

why do people compare themselves to madonna like this i see it all over her social media 
madonna is a celebrity not some nobody trolling on facebook 

if you do not get why madonna behaves like she does they you have not been listening ..you think she behaves like the way she does at home when chilling ? she does it to annoy narrow minded idiots and it works

And this is the perfect example o what @Blond Ambitionsaid "a group of zombies who worship the ground she walks on and says she can do no wrong", like for real?, everything she does has to be an statement? C'mon that's ridiculous, then evrything I do is a statement. I did not even born in the 80's lol, and that's not my favourite persona, I became a Mafonna fan since Confessions. And it does not suit every human healthy reaction lol

No it's just you being stupid. Don't turn things around.It's not because YOU think something is true that it is. It's just opinions, that's all we got here. All of us. But don't be defensive when you are being called stupid because what you say is stupid otherwise you are not only stupid but a hypocrite who does not practice what you preach. Go listen to beige Adele. She won't bother you with an opinion.

I find it funny when fans get defensive as if an artist needs protection from the playground bullies. If it affects your life, it is time to get a grip on reality. tough love. Rebel heart.

I dont get triggered when they are on twitter being nasty but when they follow her pages etc etc and even fan forums i take issue , its obsessive :) i dislike certain artists and i certainly do not follow them lol - sick of seeing the old " i was a fan of madonnas but now i cant stand her time to unfollow her a" and they dont unfollow  and i see them saying the same thing on madonnas next post - lots of haters posing as fans and i dont know what they want to achieve lol - i always hate it when a woman that looks like a bag of spuds gets nasty about how madonna looks ..bitch LOOK IN THE MIRROR first before being a bitch about how somebody looks

Not some of you acting like you're above 'fan behaviour' whilst posting on a Madonna forum?

You spend the same amount of time admiring Madonna as Britney/BTS/Gaga/Taylor/Beyonce fans... The difference is they work together to achieve more for their idol.

If their idol is under attack, or unfairly reviewed, or 'cancelled', or going viral for the wrong reasons... They get unified and fight for their Queen.

Madonna fans use their platform to attack eachother, attack her and rate her work 5/10 on public sites. See the difference?

If you can't be bothered to do right by her, that is your choice. But don't delude yourselves into thinking it's beneath you.

I honestly dgaf and just ignore when they get attacked or else (I mean, I'm a bit sad and mad at the way people always jump to hate etc oc but I ignore it cause it always happens with celebs and goes by so why caring? Idk if it's clear lol), I only answer and join these discussions when I see fans saying gross shit like M fans always say to her, assuming she's suffering from senility dementia, alcoholism, severe mental illness about her body (like wtf?!) etc, all of this because they are stuck with her older incarnations... and always being the first ones at making ageist remarks about her.

That's why I answered in this topic yesterday, idgaf about morons offending her in general cause unfortunately it's usual for humans to hate and being attracted to negativity lol, but I HATE when fans are the first going against her by assuming things like this and almost playing with delicate topics like this to "prove the point she got worse", it's absurd. I criticize her too sometimes, but I never thought shit like this, it's just gross and ageist af. Still they think it's OK and they're "mature fans", i don't get what's going on in this people's minds lol

Are you serious with this? 
We are not her PR company. People get paid to do that. If she fucks up we’re not responsible to clean it up. That’s her job and the people she pays to do that for her.

And even more so, many times she know what her fans want and she does the opposite. Which is her right to do but can’t be expected for her fan base to like it.

We’re a very diverse fan base and we don’t follow her blindly like a creepy cult like some other artists’ fan bases. 
And that’s perfectly ok.

"People get paid to do that" doesn't really stand when you spend so much time on this forum, for free. Which is the exact point I made. Other artists' fans spend that same time actually benefiting the artists online presence and reputation.

You look down on them for doing that for free? I look down on you for speaking negatively about Madonna every day for free. People get paid for that too, yet here you are.

Like I said - If you don't want to engage as a fan you have that right. But not only are you acting like its beneath you (it isn't: you're on this forum) but now you're shaming the people that do put in the effort for her.

As much as there are people who bitch and moan about everything she does, there are also those that would eat up her shit if she took a big dump in their hand - and then ask for more.

There are also those in the middle.

The beyhive is fanatical and insane - say one bad word and they will murder you

Little Monsters are just as bad and so are the Lambs. And I mean they are scary.

These are not fanbases - they are cults. 

I am certain there are people who don't agree with everything their YASSS QUEEN does, difference is, unlike M fans, other fan bases are so unhealthy, if you say one bad or even level headed thing they percieve to be against their QUEEN, they will reduce you to dust.

No fan base is perfect. I prefer to scroll past a few negative comments here, than feel like a hivemind cult member in other fan base forums.

The monsters don’t like the jazz albums. They don’t like the album version of Babylon. They don’t like the lack of promo for Chromatica. 

The beyhive don’t like I Am Sasha Fierce. They don’t like it when she tours with her husband.

They tweet and Insta that shit all the time. If you wanna be a Care Bear Angel, go to the ICON forums.

Lol I’m not looking down on anyone. Everyone’s entitled to spend their time online however they want.

You’re the one who demands we should all provide free labor for Madonna just because we’re fans. Nevermind most of us are spending a small fortune on her releases and tours

I’m spending time here because I enjoy most of what Madonna does (past and present) and I like to read what many of the members have to say. 
Unlike some of you, I’m able to respect peoples opinions even when they’re not worshiping Madonna.

I wouldn’t know… I got banned from Gagadaily in 2011 for saying The Monster Ball is trash and I never looked back lol

You can admire some artists' work and spend time, money and energy on them.
As a natural instinct you like to meet more people that share your interest. Having common things unified and helps you to be social, and human after all.
But not everyone has the same relationships with their passions and fads. Some people find that the artists’ work helps them to deal with their sexual identity, preferences or the bullying because of it. For others it is just a  beacon to follow and replicate, others just feel good about their music.
The idea that everyone needs to act in the same way and protect this creative like an idol is dangerous, for the mind of the individuals and for society in general. When people gang up  idolizing one person and becoming their army, nothing good comes from it (Hello America!)
Britney was abused, mocked and destroyed for years by the media and by everyone else that accepted that she was wasted, crazy and burnt with no way back. She became a victim. And what's happening right now is a social response to that. Guilt and pity.
If Madonna would go through some horrible event in her life , like death, illness or accident, the media will turn around her and make her like this strong woman battling for years and defying norms.
Because she is healthy , capable and doing whatever she pleases she is facing , what she faced her whole life: backlash and criticism.
But you just need to watch every other interview from the late 80s onwards and she talks EVERYTIME about this. Too old to do things, being a whore, not  a classy woman , too vulgar and so on.
Because you like someone’s work it doesn't mean you need to be gullible to accept every splinter they break and every opinion they have.
I would stand against those that belittle her for not acting her age or being a lady, not because is Madonna but because I can’t stand misogyny and ageism. But it is up to everyone how and what they want to do about the way they feel.
Some people have followed her work since the 80s, 90s. Some only know her since CODF. Some buy every record and go to every concert, some come here and download all the music because they can't afford it. All of them share a common interest in her work.
But nobody has the right to say that one is less than others to enjoy or relate to the artist or that fandom needs to follow rules and steps. There’s no indoctrination to hobbies and pleasures in life, do things you enjoy because you enjoy them, not because you need to do what someone else tells you to do.
