Let me start with this...... I've been a Madonna fan for decades: have a lot of her records, seen her in concert four times, held my breath during her superbowl appearance out of fear she'd fall......... Say what you will about her, she's left an indelible mark on pop culture. Lately though, she's fallen into the trap that a lot of women (and some men) have where their face looks like an overly-inflated balloon. Fillers! Frickin filers man. It's that jiffy pop face phenomena. I recently saw a photo of her with the most extremely swollen chipmunk cheeks and it took a moment to figure out it was her. Thought at first it was Kylie, then maybe Ashley Judd, or perhaps even a newly blond Sharon Osbourne, but no.... sadly it was Madonna. Easy up girl.
Aside from the filler-face, I personally think it would be more interesting at this stage in her life and career if she kept her cloths on. That's just me. But a boob and ass flash at 54 and her legs constantly spread seems more sad than provocative. I'm not being agist, far from it. Of course you can be extremely attractive and desirable in your 50s and 60s but I believe that's accomplished tastefully.
I will continue to appreciate Madonna for the mark she's made thus far, but I hope the next stage in her career will be one that's blazing a trail of aging gracefully and not acting like a teenager seeking a hookup.
