    Default Madonna Appreciation thread - For fans

    Surely, the only other artist apart from Michael that has emerged in the last 25 years that is still relevant today is Madonna.

    She is still at the top of her game and unlike Prince (who I do like) can release an album or single today and it will hit the top.

    I know this will get many responses that she's only famous for re-inventing herself & using her sexuality to get where she's got but that's simply not true.

    My argument against the re-inventing thing is that she simply knows how to move with the times. Take 'Hung Up' for example, just when you thought her best days were over she releases a track that pop artists today would kill to make. At 47 she made a song that sounded so up to date it was futuristic.

    She's also not a puppet, she has written more number one hits than any other female. Her concerts are ground breaking, and dare I say it, more enjoyable than even Michael's because every tour has something new. Although Mike slightly refines each routine. You know what Billie Jean, Beat It & the J5 medley will look like each time, where as Madonna will perform fully different versions of her hits to keep them fresh and she's learned to sing live. In fact her voice has developed amazingly in the last 10 years.

    Where Madonna lacks compared to MJ is the quality of her albums. Although she is a lot more prolofic than Michael (in the last 7 years we've had 2 albums and one confirmed for this year) there are only 2 that I can fully play without skipping any tracks. Michael's are more complete.

    Singles wise, however, she has made some amazing pieces of work:

    Like A Prayer
    Vogue
    Hung Up
    Music
    Don't Tell Me
    Papa Don't Preach
    American Life
    Ray Of Light
    Secret
    Rain


    To name just 10. She has had approx 70 Top 10 hits in the UK and has inspired every female artist going today.

    I have to agree with you on that one!!!

    I like her, I have almost all of her albums. My fav albums of her are Like a prayer and Confessions. It's funny because there are almost 20 years between these 2.

    I love Madonna, her and Michael are like my parents, I grew up with them all my life. I saw her live 2 years ago for the first time and I was amazed by her performances, so much energy. But I have to say if MJ and Madonna performed for one night only, on the same date...I'd be buying my ticket to see Michael.

    Any news on Madonnas new album, Im sure it must be out soon?

    Madonna's new album is slated to hit stores this April. She is rumored to be performing her new single "4 Minutes to Save the World" at the Super Bowl. We'll see.

    Madonna is obviously a huge part of my life. I have every album there is to have. I love her just as much as I do Michael. Both are incredible artists, each in their own way. The days of true legends and icons like Elvis, MJ, and Madonna are over.

    I like Madonna, but I think she's kind of overrated. Her singing isn't all that, and she's mostly known for her personal life, not her music.

    Rest in peace, Michael. Teach the angels to moonwalk.

    Madonna is certainly known for pushing the envelope but the music is just as memorable.

    Madonna is a wonderful she has been such an icon for the gay community and has helped reclaim female sexuality, and she has such an array of great songs like MJ.
    Borderline,lucky star,take a bow,human nature ( my favourite from MJ aswell )express yourself..even confessions, her latest album is catchy as hell!
    thats the short version.I could go on about Madonna.

    I am not sure what to make of this album and the people she chose to work with. I heard 'Candy shop' and its not my thing, the lyrics are so 'immature', something I would have expected from 50, JT etc not her. (imo). But we'll wait and see.

    I saw an "art photo" of a naked guy bending over as Madonna, on her knees and also nude, bites his ass. I told a Madonna fan that it wasn't art, but rather just a picture of Madonna biting some guy's butt, and she got all mad and started saying some feminist mumbo jumbo in defense. So I stopped listening and went to watch Nelly's Tip Drill on YouTube, which by the way is in fact a work of art.

    Anyway, my favorites are Beautiful Stranger and Die Another Day. Can't really get into any of the vintage stuff.

    A proper artist / performer will be contraversial and get people talking. That's what Madonna does, it's what Michael, Eminem, The Beatles & Elvis all did.

    WIth Madonna (and Mike) you get excellent music quality as well.

    You don't get superstars anymore, any existing ones started in the '80's and music is missing that right now.

    No new release gets me excited like going and buying a new MJ or Madonna album.
