Transformation … Madonna goes from epic to annoying
MADONNA used to be awesome - but is now simply annoying.
That’s the conclusion we’ve come to after seeing her latest “shocking" snaps.
The Material Girl, 54, has posed in Muslim headgear and posted the shot on Twitter.
Last month, she pointed a pistol at a man’s head to promote her new film. And on her most recent tour she got her boobs out for a baying crowd, snogged her boyfriend on stage and pointed assault rifles at her fans. It seems the star’s love of shock tactics knows no bounds.
But shock is seldom what Madge fans feel any more - boredom and disappointment are closer to the mark. Sadness, perhaps more than anything, because Madonna used to be a pop genius.
Quirky and cool, she showed a generation of women how to march to their own tune. Through hit after catchy hit, we watched and loved her every move. But the adulation dried up. And instead of ageing gracefully, the Vogue singer has clawed on to fame by pulling ever more dodgy stunts.
Her look rarely changes - those arse-flashing fishnets must be knackered by now - and her music is heading down the toilet. So we now publicly beg this woman to stop the madness. Stop trying so damn hard and please bring back Awesome Madge. Or trot off and leave us with us with our memories before your next “controversial" photoshoot takes what little respect for you we have left.
Let’s look at the case for the prosecution…
Scared of losing the spotlight, Madonna keeps doing this...
She knows that sex and violence sell so she uses them - but only “to make a point".
She’s pretty chuffed with her hot young boyfriend. And wants you to know about it.
She wants to stay a sex symbol … but subtlety is not her strong point.
She thinks guns are bad … so gets them out on stage. A lot.
Right this is the final straw…
But it never used to be like this. Madge used to be awesome. She could wear this…
She made girly style a good thing. And lace sales went through the roof.
She dressed like a bloke. And still looked sexy.
She read books in her boxer shorts. It worked.
She even dried her pits in public. And we LOVED her for it.
She set trends rather than copied them.
She made us all customise our jeans.
With just one pair of Wayfarers and no hairbrush, she took over the world.
Her music and stage shows set the bar for every other pop act.
She teased her fans - and sold the idea of sex without showing a single nipple.
In short, she was strong, stunning and simply awesome. On her own terms. We miss this Madonna.
