Madge looks sensational here.
|I remember her.|
Madonna marches onstage and in the very first sentence (or so it seemed) dropped what clearly was a pre-planned and gratuitous M-F bomb. I was disgusted and so disappointed and thought of those mothers with that needlessly awkward moment they shouldn't have had to deal with during family hour.
I read of Madonna's erratic behavior on her recent tour...especially the Australian leg of that tour. In one instance, she pulled a random 17 year old girl onstage and then pulled down her shirt exposing her breast. It turned out the 17 year old girl loved being in the International spotlight for a couple of days. Enough has been said about that already and Madonna has had some family issues to deal with in the public spotlight which can't be easy. Geniuses like Madonna are wired differently and are genetically predisposed to erratic behavior. She is too talented and had astonishing Artistic output as a performer to have her career be most remembered for a tragic ending. Whatever missteps she's made are far outweighed by her positive contributions. I hope she can get people around her that are helpful.
Sean & Madonna. Two enormously talented and volatile performers.
Let's hope they both continue to share their great gifts for many years to come
During the comments section of that previous post, there was a spirited exchange along with a rumored allegation regarding Sean Penn physically abusing Madonna and it lowered my then very high opinion of him. Just a few days ago, Sean Penn won a settlement from Empire Creator/Director Lee Daniels who also made those false allegations only during an interview. Lee Daniels issued a formal apology and in the settlement donated an undisclosed amount to Haiti for ongoing support of those 2010 earthquake victims. Madonna provided a sworn affidavit stating that Sean Penn never abused her. As I stated in this post, I was with Sean Penn when he worked tirelessly for months on his own dime in Haiti back in early 2010.
