MADGE BASHING ON QUEERTY.COM
I remember a couple of years ago I wrote a lengthy blog with some negative things to say about Madonna. That post got more responses than anything else I'd ever written. A couple of years later, Queerty.com writes an "open letter" urging the Material Girl to age gracefully and stop the unflattering surgeries. The comments are bizarre--from "She'll always be the the queen and she's never had any surgery" to "I'm over her and her music". I actually like her latest album more than any other--SHE'S NOT ME has a Paradise Garage feeling to it and I love THE BEAT GOES ON. I'm certainly not averse to plastic surgery either, but stars do tend to get carried away. Her cheek implants are odd and while she still has beautiful eyes, she is heading into Madame the puppet territory with the high cheekbones and her nose is starting to meet her chin--kind of a witchy look which comes from her genes and is emphasized by being thin. It's as if her face didn't need another strong angle which she just gave it with the sharp cheek implants. It's crazy to claim as some have, that she's had nothing done. Remember that time she fell off a horse and "broke her collar bone"? And then went on a rigorous world tour with lotsa dancing shortly a month or two later? I'm not a doctor but I think a break like that would take a while to set, especially on over age 40 bones.
Anyhoo, here's the link, and be sure to check out the comments--it's a top priority issue for gay men!
HERE'S A FEW EXCEPTS OF COMMENTS:
Her plastic surgeries are what disappoint me most. All the way back to "Vogue" she was starting to have work done, and it took away my belief that her confidence and chutzpah were a force of nature. It saddens me to see her riddled with the same human insecurities we mortals have, she is supposed to be a goddess!
"Look, we're the gays, your biggest fans, we're with you no matter what you do."
Speak for yourself, fool.
A simple " Your music has sucked for the last 15 years would've sufficed".
Madonna is NOT Gay-friendly (anti Gay Marriage)
Cher is GAY Friendly (has always been)
Her madgesty seems to be on her way to looking like a bad fast-lifted newsreader on CNN!
Things not in her favor:
Italian women do not age well. Guy Richie discovered that!
Her jogger's face syndrome has an aging gravitational pull
Her legs on "Confessions" looked like your Grandmas
Mae West was prettier at her age.
Emulate women who age well and stop trying to look as young as Natasha Bedingfield because everyone is laughing AT you.
You come across as desperately needing Britney to hitch your Vegas-bound 80s act to when you were more believable with friends like Rosie O'Donnell and Sandra Bernhard who were your age group.
Drop the fake British affectations as we still know you were trailer trash from Detroit who discovered Hollywood-God
Get a hot Spanish lover (what you always wanted) and live life a little unkept (Hippy chicks get tha Dicks!)
BUNNY NOTE: Amen to that! I think the time I Madonna inspired me the most was when I'd hear rumors that she used to ride around my old Loisaida neghborhood offering a "ride" to latino studs who were over 8 inches! Now THAT is a diva I can identify with!
