    The Brazilian pre-sale in favor of her fan club was suspended and the company selling the tickets fined, because it's considered illegal to privilege a group of customers. Everyone must have the same right to buy the tickets.

    I don't see why it would be considered illegal being that everyone has the very same opportunity to be a part of her official fan club or not. If you are and pay for a membership, then why not reap the benefits? It's perfectly fair.

    I'm also going to see her live!
    I'm going to her Florence concert in June. I've actually wanted to go to only one concert of hers (I can't afford a second concert on my own as I'm studying right now), but for my birthday I've got tickets for her Zurich concert in August too, so I'm going to see her twice!
    I can't wait, it's my first time I will see her live!

    Too bad I can't afford and have the time to go to one Immortal show, though...

    @ Travis and Ashtanga: Which kind of seats did you guys get?

    Middle section. I can't afford front row. -_- ... But it will still be amazing.

    Anyhoo...

    So...

    On to Madonna's Truth or Dare perfume...

    I bought it. I couldn't help myself. I wanted the bottle and bags. The tote is actually very nice as is the gift bag. Total class. The fragrance itself is also super classy and high society. I imagine this is what it smells like to be Madonna. To be honest, at first, I didn't like the smell of it but after a few minutes it became really lovely, light and yet intoxicating. I've heard some a-holes say it smells like old lady but that couldn't be any further from the truth. I think it's really sweet she did this in honor of the memory of her mother's scent. I hope that she does a future mens line as well.

    Garbage star Shirley Manson has hit out at the public's obsession with Madonna's ageing process.




    The Scottish singer can't understand why there is so much focus on the 52-year-old pop star's image, and she was shocked when she saw close-ups of Madonna's wrinkly hands.

    Manson tells Bullett Media, "The tabloids complain about Madonna looking old, and people laugh at her for that. Then Madonna goes and fixes her face, and they laugh at her for that. Even though they begrudgingly say she looks amazing, they'll still laugh at her for trying to look young.

    "Then she steps out, looking amazing, and the tabloids go and blow up a picture of her ageing hand. Nobody's doing that to George Clooney, blowing up pictures of his hands!

    "I look at these magazines, and I want to say to them, 'What's your point? That she's aged? Does that surprise you? Or is your 'point' an attempt to undercut what she's achieved?' I think it is, even if it's on a subconscious level... And you probably wouldn't turn down those hands if they were grabbing you under the table, you f**king idiots!"

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I'm glad someone is speaking out and I hope more do. It's incredibly sexist and ageist of the media and society in general and it really needs to stop. Why are people so threatened by this woman? Why must so many try to cut her down? Madonna is damned if she does and damned if she don't.

    It took me awhile to get into MDNA, but I'm really liking it. Some killer tracks on it.

    I like Madonna's "MDNA" album. But I think there needs to be a major new promotion campaign for this album during her tour, like album/tour promo TV spots and a few decent music videos that she could make during breaks in the tour. And she should release "Masterpiece" as a video-only single at least for the music media TV programs. I think the album was probably a promotional item for her upcoming concerts. But I also think that the album could have still had a longer decent showing on the album sales charts if the promotional campaign before the tour had been stronger. I hope that her album sales improve with this tour though.

    ^ Just as I suspected, Madonna is selling better everywhere else. MDNA is currently the #2 best selling album worldwide but with a little promotion could uptick in the US. The album isn't dead, it just need a little thing called PR. I'm still dumbfounded as to why Madonna chose to concentrate solely on the tour. Unless she has something up her sleeve (and she may), I'll forever be confused about the MDNA era which started so strongly with the Super Bowl and critical praise.

    I just searched the previous pages and noticed that her Girl Gone Wild video wasn't even posted yet...So, for anyone who missed it:






    By the way, time to UPDATE this thread! New rehearsal pictures of her MDNA tour were posted on FB :wild:














    And here all other pics previously posted:

    March:









    April:







    Those were all :lol:

    Her first concert will be on May 31 in Tel Aviv. Then, she will go to Abu Dhabi for 2 concerts and to Istanbul for another concert in early June, and the European leg of the tour will start on 12 June in Rom. It will last until the end of august, after that she'll be in America until November and then she'll go to South America in December. It's highly possible her tour will come to Australia in spring 2013 too

    I can't wait, I think it's going to be amazing

    ^ Looks really really good. Rumor is Madonna is doing an "Express Yourself/Born This Way" mash-up. I hope it's true, it will be a really smart move/PR stunt.
