Madonna is still very much aware of her powers. And her Rebel Heart Tour is a showcase fit for a queen. Tuesday’s show at Toyota Center was masterful and majestic, a perfectly balanced blend of old and new. The diverse crowd — soccer moms and couples, gaggles of girls, gay men and millennials — waited…Details
“Rebel Heart” is Madonna’s finest work in a decade, a diverse collection of songs that find her alternately defiant and vulnerable. And like her or not, you’ve probably grown up with her music in some way. It didn’t hit me until “Like a Prayer” in 1989. Something about that album, sonically and visually, resonated with…Details
it really be more than 25 years since Madonna launched her Blonde Ambition tour in Houston? In 1990 she appeared before a sellout crowd at The Summit (now Lakewood Church) in a Jean Paul Gaultier cone bra and an I Dream of Jeannieponytail, thrilling a sellout crowd with such hits as “Express Yourself,” “Like a…Details

Mention Madonna these days, and folks still tend to envision dark roots, conical bras and maybe a rosary necklace or two. Hey, at least they aren’t remembering “Swept Away.” But Madonna always shuddered at the thought of becoming a nostalgia act. Over the past 15 years, she’s released five albums and 24 singles, and although…Details
he emerged from a steel cage onto the stage after about an hour between her and the opening act, DJ Mary Mac. But that’s okay, she’s the unapologetic Queen of Pop and you’re not really paying for punctuality. Instead you’re paying for the experience of seeing Madonna’s first visit to San Antonio. Dressed in Kimono-like garments, Madonna started the evening with “Iconic,” the pop song that features sound bites by none other than Mike Tyson. She undresses into “Bitch, I’m Madonna,” a Japanese Samurai-inspired backdrop that definitely pumped up the lady behind me who proclaimed that, “this was her motherfucking song,” and then proceeded to butcher every single word except for the repetitive “who do you think you are,” and “bitch, I’m Madonna.”
Madonna then makes it to center stage to grab a guitar and play a rocked-out version of “Burning Up.” This gives way to the risqué nuns and Shibari clips in the background to which she’s singing “Holy Water,” that, by far, left nothing to the imagination. She centers the stage with a Last Supper orgy that if you didn’t feel any kind of heat you should immediately check yourself for signs of life. The song is mixed with “Vogue.” This happens a lot; she remixes her hits and breathes new movement into them by putting them into her newer songs.Details
“I found him so inspiring and innovative. Unique and provocative. A real genius,” singer writes of Bowie Tributes from the music community continue to pour in following the death of David Bowie, with Madonna penning a tribute to the rock icon to thank him for having such a profound impact on her career. “I’m devastated,” Madonna wrote after…Details
Let’s got back to the Fall of 1983 when Madonna starred in her first ‘major picture’, her first ‘real’ debut in a movie. Even though Madonna acted in the student film ‘A Certain Sacrifice’ before, this was never considered a serious movie. Like we mentioned before, we have launched our Filmography again and are frequently…Details
Madonna was among the many artists to share her admiration for David Bowie upon hearing news of the singer’s death in the early morning hours of Jan. 11. Tweeting that she was “devastated” and that Bowie changed her life, Madonna referenced her very first concert in Detroit at age 15, where, while living in her father’s house,…Details
IF YOU’RE going to call a woman a bad mother, you better have evidence to back that claim up, proof that she has completely and utterly failed in her duties as a carer for her children.
For me, it doesn’t get much worse in terms of insults. They’re heavy, damaging words to throw at a woman and they cut deeply, no matter who that mother is.
Madonna proved this by posting a photo on her Instagram of her and her four kids on the road together.
The caption speaks for itself. It reads, “It’s possible to be an entertainer and a good mother!!! Too bad we don’t live in a society where many encourage strong independent single working Moms! The next great Frontier!”
One can only assume she is addressing the recent controversy that has surrounded her custody arrangement with ex-husband, Guy Ritchie. In December, their son Rocco failed to return to New York for Christmas and the start of the school year.Details
