Live (On Tape) From Madonnastan

By Debbie Schlussel
Given the Europeans’ love for all things Madonna, all things effeminate, and all things surrendering to Islam, I’ve coined a new term for Europe: Madonnastan.
The Madonna concert broadcast on NBC, Thanksgiving Eve, said it all. It’s emblematic of what Europe is all about, these days. I forced myself to watch some of it, and tried in vain to find a straight man or even a solitary woman in the crowd. Both were not to be seen. A lot of sweaty effeminate looking wimps in wife-beater tank tops, though.
Washed up here, Europe loves the extreme botoxed aging pop star resembling a drag queen who did too much yoga and fake Kabbalah. Europe loves her little can’t-we-all-just-get-along dances with washboard-ab endowed, gay, look-alike dancers with Islam and Judaism tattoos.


As for the rest of us, we ain’t buying this dated, ’80s pre-9/11, cheesy tripe.
For all the hype over NBC’s broadcast of has-been Madonna’s European concert and whether the network would show her hoisted on the cross (fortunately, the network declined after much protest), the concert was a total flop in the ratings, here in much-saner America.
The New York Times reports that “Madonna: The Confessions Tour, Live From London” finished fourth, with a paltry 4.8 million viewers.
We’re tired of Skank-donna. Frankly, when we’ve already seen and heard every inch of her, there’s no mystery–or curiosity–left. She’s just another self-absorbed American woman (who hates America) soon to turn 50. Who cares?
Even William Shatner’s awful “Show Me the Money” game show beat her.
And, pretty soon, Europe–paying far too much attention to Madonna and far too little attention to the Islamofascist takeover all around–will be beaten, too.
And we’re not talking Madonna’s whips or spankings to her gay dancers. So long, Madonnastan.

I was shocked for a moment when I saw the above photo of Man-Donna dancing with two girlie-men representing Judaism and Islam.
For some reason Man-Donna reminded me of Jesse Jackson.
Don’t ask me why.

William Shatner vs Madonna, like it’s even a competition. At least Shatner actually knows his persona is a joke.

Madonna is the ZsaZsa Gabor of her generation: famous for being famous.

Well, I usually skip on the cultural stuff, but this is one I have to chip in.
Madonna–who buys her stuff and keeps her famous? I saw Danny Deutch last week referring to her as a “genius” for how she keeps coming back and reinventing herself around a sexual theme. I guess I just have to say–give me a break. puke.
This crapola with her pretending to be crucified as a part of her act–hello? This girl, as always, plays the slut and makes her big money mocking everything of virtue. She behaves like Howard Stern’s sister on the highway to hell.

Becuase of this slut who’s experation date was past due some 10 years ago, most of the females of my generation is dressing like her and acting like her….not to mention like the other slut-stars out there.

Wow. The vitriol of the responses would be impressive were they not outshone by the juvenile, mysogynistic, homophobic insults (“slut” “Man-donna” “girly-men”). Impressive.
Famous for being famous, eh? Did any of you see the show? Sorry, why did I ask?
She’s 48 years old and capable of thrilling a live audience of tens of thousands with choreography the rest of us could never imagine in our best physical condition.
I know, if Madonna were a real woman, she’d starve her blonde-self and make millions selling books full of right-wing lies. Too bad Ann Coulter has a lock on that market. I still don’t understand why Annie’s got an Adam’s apple, but that’s another day’s discussion…

So NoHaters,
I take it you like the slut act, eh?

BB on November 28, 2006 at 10:36 pm

I don’t think her act is about being a slut. There’s a lot more to Madonna than that. Calling her a slut is very 15 years ago and fails to recognize all that she cultivated re: her image.
Moreover, I think a 48 year-old woman in control of her sexuality is hardly a slut. If a woman her age can look that good, how can you fault her for wanting to show it off? At what point has a woman lived long enough to be able to own her sexuality without being called names?
In her concert, she was sexually provocative, but she was also politically provocative. She was also retro. She was also a rocker. She also tried to raise people’s social awareness. It’s more than a “slut act”. Characterizing people with such broad strokes is rarely going to leave an accurate picture.
Unless you’re talking about Britney Spears. She’s just trash. (JK!) 🙂

OK Nohaters–
I don’t think we will ever see eye to eye on Madonna or on the definition of a SUCCESSFUL or SLUT…. I agree that Madonna is in control of her sexuality and works out. Who/what is she doing this week? Did she ever marry?–or, wasn’t it Madonna who hired for a “looks based sperm donor” in Central Park to have a kid with??? –A cousin of Rosie O in this respect–who needs a man? Madonna’s looks do nothing for me–I only see a skank.
Her success is just like Howard Stern’s (the king of all media)–they both destroy the limits of acceptable behavior in order to get a headline. Howard attracts young (and old) voyeurs to watch “the Lord of the anal ring toss” and “who wants to be a butt billionaire” with today’s guest porno star. Just like Einstein–sheer genius!
Paris Hilton achieved her fame with a SINGLE homemade video and look at what she has done with her “slut-dom/” Overnight she became a household word.
On Britany Spears–one of the “BS sisters” with Babbs–now that is a slut of a different color. This week, she’s apparently been doing DS’s favorite thing (we know from reading so many of DS reviews), using the crotchless panty for a cheap headline on Entertainment Tonight (or is a panty-less crotch?).
Oh well, I should not comment here. The entertainment page is not my element–so don’t take me too seriously. But you know DS loves to stir us up.

Agreed that we can agree to disagree on this one, although I still take issue at lumping Madonna in with Stern (who is outright crude and little else), Hilton (who is truly only famous for being famous), or Spears (whose talent is dubious at best and intellegence is non-existant).
If nothing else, Madonna’s Ray of Light album in 1998 is accepted in most critical circles as an artistic success ( see “Critical Response and Awards”). Personally, it’s one of my favorite albums ever (if it’s not your style of music, so be it).
There were little, if any, sexual overtones to this album, and it includes a very touching song written for her daughter Lourdes (“Little Star”). Even if you don’t like her music, consider checking it out on iTunes, or at least read the lyrics. It’s a very sweet song. ( I don’t expect it will change your overall opinion of her, but if you’re a parent or even an aunt or uncle, it’s very sweet.
Stern, Hilton, and Spears will never offer that kind of artistic contribution to popular culture.
Also, FYI, Madonna has been married to movie director Guy Ritchie for 6 years now, which may not seem like much, but is pretty impressive in the world of celebrity marriages! To the best of my knowledge, not even the sleeziest of tabloids have hinted at any marital infedelity there.
It’s World AIDS day today everyone. Remember those lost to and living with this horrible disease and ask yourself how you can make a difference in the fight against HIV/AIDS.
