    I never knew people considered Madonna a bad singer until I started using message boards and you hear these kind of complaints. I think unless you have a terrible singing voice, then a singer is only as good as the songs they're singing. Nobody complains that Paul McCartney isn't a technically gifted singer, so why do they bring it up with Madonna? Sexism?

    Possibly. So many artists I like aren't technically good at all but they've got a unique style. Heck, Dylan live fails to pronounce words! I like Madonna on her albums but live sometimes she slips into almost talking. That is why I rhetorically asked "The most talented?" In terms of technical ability no, but again, it's not about that, she hasn't proclaimed herself to be pavarotti and this is pop music.

    Actually I should have just stated that I like her without trying to over analyse something that wasn't asked.

    I don't know if it's sexism. I just think that with females everyone expects them to sound like Adele, or Celine Dion or Mariah Carey (when she ould still sing). But although there's a market for torch singers, with pop it's irrelevant to a degree.

    And anyway, since she trained for Evita, Madonna's live voice has been really strong. Yeah, she'll never be Aretha Franklin. But at least she should be given some Respect.

    You're welcome.

    Also, like with MJ, take away all the frills (the controversy, live shows, great videos, attitude etc) and just listen to the music and you have some of the best pop songs of all time.

    Like A Prayer
    Holiday
    Music
    Don't Tell Me
    Ray Of Light
    Papa Don't Preach
    Open Your Heart
    Into The Groove
    La Isla Bonita
    Express Yourself
    Vogue
    Justify My Love
    Take A Bow
    Live To Tell
    Hung Up
    Borderline
    Lucky Star
    Crazy For You


    and that's just a handful of singles...

    Thats exactly what she brings! Stellar pop classics! And by the way, I agree with what your saying and that was the point I was trying to make.

    Finally, Rebel Heart DVD and CD gets a release date. September 15th.

    Looks like it will be great as will include all the acoustic extra songs.

    Madonna announced her new concert film, Rebel Heart Tour, will be released September 15th. The live film originally premiered on Showtime in December 2016 and was taped during Madonna's Sydney, Australia concerts in March 2016.

    Bitch, She's Madonna: The Genius of the 'Rebel Heart' Tour
    Sentimental, unapologetic show comes 30 years after her first MSG performance

    The film includes bonus content such as live and behind-the-scenes unreleased footage. The career-spanning set list featured hits from throughout Madonna's discography, as well as reinterpreted renditions of classic tracks, acoustic versions of "Like A Prayer," "Secret" and "Don't Tell Me" and her first ever in-concert performances of "Take a Bow."

    Madonna fan Aldo Diaz designed Rebel Heart Tour's cover art, while the singer's frequent collaborators Danny Tull and Nathan Rissman co-directed the film. Rebel Heart Tour will be released as a digital download, DVD/Blu-ray and a standalone CD featuring highlights from the concert.

    At last. I've been waiting on this.

    Did you go to see any of the RH gigs Tony?

    Unfortunately not. I was in Golden Circle for MDNA though!!

    I've seen the show on Showtime & it seemed really good on the whole. I love the RH album and the fact she did so many extra special songs she'd never done before or for a long time.

    I love the Confessions tour blu-ray! They did a superb job with that one, I'm hoping the RH show was filmed in a similar way, to really capture the excitement of the show.

    I saw it at the O2, first time I've seen a show of hers in the flesh since Drowned World. It seemed lighter and airier than the denser and darker Drowned World Tour with it's goth punk, industrial, and cowboy aesthetics (I loved all that), but the setlist was fantastic.

    I think this will unfortunately follow the way MDNA was shot. Lots of cutaways, slow motion shots and massive crowd noise. Still looks amazing though. Great mix of over the top theatrics as well as some more intimate moments.
