Madonna’s Classy New Show!
This sounds like a real classy show:
Later on, (Madonna) donned a crown of thorns and suspended herself from a giant mirrored cross to deliver the ballad “Live to Tell.” Video screens showed images of third-world poverty and reeled off grim statistics.
During one of her half-dozen costume changes, another video montage juxtaposed images of Bush, members of his administration and British Prime Minister Tony Blair with footage of Adolf Hitler, Osama bin Laden, and Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe. Midway through the new song “I Love New York,” she deviated from the script and made a crude reference to Bush and oral sex.
Crucifying herself, huh? Maybe she can stick that on the cover of one of her children’s books.
Of course, the only thing she was trying to do with this whole Hitler and pony show was to attract attention and get people to write about her which is….oh. Well, I guess it worked.
Still, I think I’m safe. I mean it’s not like I’m suggesting that people boycott her and how many RWN readers are going to a Madonna show? Particularly since, despite the fact that she keeps in shape, she’s not aging that well — and should middle-aged women really be crucifying themselves in public? Should anyone really be crucifying themselves at all these days?
No, I don’t think so.
