Madame X-ed: A second listen to early Madonna

As her new concert movie streams, harking back to when young Madge was the sound of the NYC streets.

In what looked like a publicity stunt gone slightly off the rails, Jimmy Fallon, host of the Tonight Show, seems to have been a little uncomfortable and downright ‘shook’ during a Madonna sit-down Thursday Night. Madge was on the show promoting her Madame X concert film that is currently screening on Paramount +. Was it the diamond grillz? Her stretching out on his desk very seductively—or the flashing of her rear-end on a nationally televised show—that got Fallon freaked-out and nervous?

MADAME X on MTV Nederland tonight! REMINDER

MADAME X will air on MTV Nederland tonight at 21.30. ViacomCBS Benelux has communicated that despite of the scheduled TV listings (21:30-22:00) they will be airing the full show.

Thankfully the correct running time has finally been added to the digital TV guide today, the new scheduled time is 21:30-00:00.

Unfortunately the show has been advertised in the physical Dutch TV guides as ‘Madame.’ without the X and no mention of ‘Madonna’, so hopefully the special won’t go completely unnoticed by the audience.

Madonna: Madame X review – tour doc prostrates itself before queen of pop ***

This film lays out the impressive staging of a dramatic tour but is intent on capturing its subject from only the best angles

This documentary opens with the old James Baldwin quotation about artists being here to disturb the peace, alongside a montage of the many controversies Madonna has sparked over the course of her career.

‘Madame X’ review: Madonna concert movie proves the Queen of Pop is still in her prime ****

Though Madame X is billed as a “documentary film” and a “concert documentary”, it’s really a concert film – albeit a highly stylised and beautifully executed one. If you’re expecting backstage footage of Madonna grappling with the knee injury that sometimes interrupted 2019-2020’s ‘Madame X’ tour, you’ll be disappointed. But if you want to see the pop queen reinvent her live show with an even more devil-may-care attitude, it definitely delivers.
