I think she's pretty cool. I'm not as familiar with her recorded history as I should be (just know the hits) but she's got my respect.


Kinda paved the way for a lot of pop acts over the last 25 years hasn't she?

some of her music is really really good, especially her earlier stuff, or up until the early 90's anyway. In fact i would even call some of her music great.

But she is still an asshole.

I wouldn't be surprised to learn she's a complete and utter asshole.

But she's still awesome.

The video for 'Celebration' is pretty cheap looking. I had expected Warner would send her off with a decent clip - but I suppose there is still 'Revolver' to come in November.

Same here! I've been listening to that album a lot lately. For some reason it flew under my radar when it first came out. In fact, I've been listening to all her stuff a lot lately. I appreciate her more now that when I was younger.

My most vivid memory of Madonna was when I first saw the Open Your Heart video. I was 11 or 12 when that came out, I think? It was the sexiest thing my tender eyes had seen up until then.

whoah whoah whoah! I dont think her new vid is absolutely crap crap crap!

it MAY NOT be as exciting as the likes of Hung Up, Sorry, etc.

but for fuk sake peeps, look at how much more boring her video for Love Dont Live Here Anymore is!

I really love the new song, its a floor filler for clubs, it may not be a fandabbydozzy video for you lot to go crazy over but I bloody like it! its bloody great and catchy. there are good dancers in it. its a fast pace song with vid to match for all the beats in it......and vid reminds me of Give It To Me. ( a little)

and the fuking complaints about her wearing a wig in it, etc.


shes still awesome to me.

"Celebration" is one one Madonna's most uninteresting and poor singles ever. The instrumental screams a lack of imagination and a quick despair for hit Dance Charts only.

Plus, Madonna has already written a song like this ne 300 times before. «Come and dance»/«Let's celebrate»/«Release yourself and join the party»... Madonna has already sang this in similar (and much better) songs like "Everybody", "Holiday", "Into The Groove", "Spotlight", "Get Together", etc etc etc. Another thing is that she has already used the rhyme "Celebrate/ion" with "Hesitate/ion" and similar wasted words.

"Revolver" is a bit better but it belongs to the Hard Candy despair of hitting the urban charts with a cheap hip-hop influenced pop song. Madonna has already made miles much better things.

About the compilation with the same name Celebration, it could be worse.
Madonna is the kind of artists that has so many (but so many) easily recognizable hits that it's even hard to compilate it in two discs.
Given this, I can't understand why did she include songs that almost no one remembers anymore like "Burning Up", "Dress You Up", "Cherish" or the "Miles Away" fiasco-single, instead of other instant hits like "Don't Cry For Me Argentina", "American Life", "Give It 2 Me" or "You'll See", for instance.

On the DVD, there are other non-understable absences... This was the chance of releasing in a DVD compilation the censored version of "American Life" or the (poor but) first video, "Everybody". A bit serious too are the omission of some of Madonna's best videos ever, like the David Fincher's "Oh Father" and "Bad Girl" (first one is a true masterpiece) or the Sednaoui's "Fever", or even the enigmatic "Nothing Really Matters" or "Drowned World/Substitute For Love".

The music video for the single "Celebration" follows the poorness of the title itself and the lack of real artistic vision of the last album (and the last videos since 2006).

Garrison, this is the Madonna "appreciation" thread.

Besides, Madonna is NOT an asshole. She's a prick. And wouldn't have it any other way.

She's definitely a bitch. You only have to look at the way she treated people like Camille Barbone and other early benefactors. She's a narcissist who has proven time and again she'll screw (often quite literally) anyone to get what she wants.

That being said, Like A Prayer, Erotica and Ray of Light are all remarkable albums. It's just a shame her music these days is utter drivel. It reeks of someone trying desperately to hold onto her youth, right down to the horrid plastic surgery. I guess she was the Material Girl all along.

I agree. Ray of Light was her last good work. Everything else after that is her trying to compete with Britney, Christina and Lady Gaga.

And the highlights of Dancefloor are superb.

Hard Candy is completely inexcusable though, so I would content that her most recent work is drivel.

Love, love, LOVE Dancefloor. I was mostly disappointed with Hard Candy, save for one or two bright spots. I'm looking forward to the tour DVD though.

Yeah, the concert was certainly better than the album.

But I still enjoy 4 Minutes, Give it to Me, Heartbeat, Beat Goes On, Dance 2night, and the last two tracks.

It's not a bad album, just a somewhat shallow one.

She did the R&B thing a lot better on Bedtime Stories.
