Lady Madonna Edition

So how do you like your Madonna? Do you like the young pop princess from the 1980s or the mature diva of the new century. I have to admit that I really don’t get the appeal of Madonna anymore. I’ve liked some of her music, mostly her 1980s stuff and some of the 1990s music.

I got burned out on the Madonna machine. Every new album had to have its own controversy or some sort of spectacle to go along with it. It got to the point you could tell when she was getting ready to release a new album by how she acted in front of the cameras.  Once it got to that point I just lost interest in her.

I blame Madonna for laying the groundwork to celebrity whoredom. Madonna’s the talent to back it up, she has had a great career. The problem is people like Paris Hilton and the Pratt-Douchebags who have picked up on her strategy and don’t have any talent to back it up. Can’t sing or act? No problem, just be sure you get your picture taken a lot and learn the art of the sound bite. That’s neither here nor there for the sake of this Thunderdome I guess, but I point the finger at you Madonna.

So, how do you like her?

Borderline young?

  1. Also, Borderline is a Personality Disorder that the song kind of awesomely (and unintentionally) captures:

    Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is a psychiatric diagnosis in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV Personality Disorders 301.83)[1] that describes a prolonged disturbance of personality function characterized by depth and variability of moods.[2] The disorder typically involves unusual levels of instability in mood; “black and white” thinking, or “splitting”; chaotic and unstable interpersonal relationships, self-image, identity, and behavior; as well as a disturbance in the individual’s sense of self. In extreme cases, this disturbance in the sense of self can lead to periods of dissociation.[3] These disturbances can have a pervasive negative impact on many or all of the psychosocial facets of life. This includes difficulties maintaining relationships in work, home and social settings. Attempted suicide and completed suicide are possible outcomes, especially without proper care and effective therapy.[4]
