Madonna Is Sizzling Hot Again!

Madonna has done the impossible.

Just by sticking it out, playing the game, and being simultaneously fabulous and appalling, she's made herself buzz-able again.

Among her strokes of genius:

*The annoying but hugely watched fashion-line promo video with the daughter, which some slow-witted observers refused to see as satirical. (Did they ever find the face of Material Girl, by the way? I never got a callback.)

*The remarks about Gaga. (Madonna admires her talent, but felt "Born This Way" was "reductive." You can bitch about that critique all you want, but we all said the same thing when it came out.)

*The upcoming Super Bowl appearance and the buzz she's managed to create about the surprise twist. (She'll sing "Born This Way"?)

*Working that movie of hers like a madwoman, appearing on talk shows, doing red carpets, and even copping a Golden Globe for the song, as if the bad reviews never happened!

*Her remarks when she won, which sent Elton John's man into a public venting spiral, not to mention her pretentious affirmation of her own love of international auteurs.

*Her continual entreaties for us to reject ideas that Wallis Simpson was a racist gold digger with Nazi ties and to instead think about what she sacrificed on the road to world disdain!

*And let's not forget Hydrangea-gate!

Oh, yes, you doubters and naysayers. Madge is on fire again.

I just hope she can get some good product out there to cash in on that.

She is acting like a spoiled twenty-five year old with no wisdom, and I hate saying that because I love Madonna and have for over twenty years now.  The masses (at least the heterosexual masses who care about football are not excited for her Super Bowl performance) and dissing "Born This Way," (the song, of course, not the album because the remainder of the album is nothing like the title track) as reductive shows her immature and threatened by an artist who looks up to her.  I will say this ... I HATE that Madonna feels the need to work with Nicki Minaj (who is extremely subpar compared to Gaga) on her headlining single ... This feels like a repeat of 'Hard Candy,' which was nowhere near as innovative and hot as 'Confessions on a Dance Floor.'

So many negative comments….. I don't get it. Never, has there been a better entertainer! This woman puts on a show like no other. I have seen her live 6 times! Each time is better than the last! Even you don't like her music, movies, fashion, fragrances……THEN DON'T BUY THEM!!!   She has been around for almost 30 years people! She's not going anywhere! 

LONG LIVE THE QUEEN!!!!!!!!!!!!

She was on the Graham Norton show last week.  Kind of funny in a bitchy, snide way, with her midAtlantic accent.  I haven't missed her, but don't mind her being around.

She also has a track coming up with Nicki Minaj and MIA. Pretty smart.

I hate to admit it but you are, of course, right. Blame Team Elton

Ehrenstein is right. Dukie and "Wally" visited Hitler on their honeymoon!

Adolf planned to set The Duke up as the puppet monarch of England after conquering it.

Then Wallis could be Queen!

With what we know now about the Windsors, he was an empty-headed lay-about and she was an acquisitive virago who had better clothes sense than her in-laws and maybe had some sex tricks up her sleeve. At least she knew that after a certain age one should WEAR sleeves, preferably three-quarter-length.

Hollow, shallow  and ultimately very sad people.

I agree, she also is looking alot better. I dont now what she had done but her face looks more natural than it did some years ago where it looked very puffy and pulled...if you compare a photo of her face from 2001 and now, she looked much older back then..Body looks amazing, even though she has the scary arms, at least shes covering the veiny hands with fingerless gloves..I think the fashion line gave her a big boost..as pretentious as she is, her daughter seems the opposite. ..The surpise twist of the superbowl, the ultimate would be lady gaga or elton coming out, LOL

Pop her into the toilet with the other turds. And flush twice to ensure direct delivery to Sandra Bernhardt.

I'm so glad she said something about "Born this Way"!  It would be so great if she sang it at the Super Bowl.....intermixing the words with "Respect Yourself"

Next Madge will star as Leni Refenstahl under the direction of Jodie Foster.

Re:  "Born This Way"/"Express Yourself":  Considering the fact that "BTW" is, indeed, a complete rehash of "EY," I thought she was fairly restrained in her comments.  I'm wondering if the reason may have something to do with the fact that "Express Yourself" is, itself, a rather shameless rehash of the 1971 Staples Singers' "Respect Yourself"?  Life goes on...and on...

And all she had to do was sell her daughter, sell her soul, and sell her crap movie.

Ugh. I hate to admit it but you are right. She's getting a lot of buzz again. Unbelievable.

Well all the hoopla means nothing if no one goes to see the movie or buys the music. We'll have to wait and see.

Yeah, but Lady gaga no doubt turned her down (wisely), so she ended up with Nicki Minaj.

She looks youthful now? yeah, if you consider Bette Davis in "Baby Jane" youthful looking.

the only thing rehashed from "Respect Yourself" is the line "Respect yourself / hey hey hey hey"...not the melody, chord progressions, etc.
