Absolutely love the pictures but tend to agree with Sean and M.A.


What an eloquent, well-thought out comment, Sean. Sadly, I have to agree with all of it. I'll also add that in my personal opinion (fan since 1985 at 15) this is least partially the effects of Kabbalah.

It may sound controversial, but I remember many interviews and other comments about Kabbalah helping her "understand why she is on this earth", "what she has been put here to do" etc. … a sort of artificial, highly-narcissistic sense of purpose heavily fueled and backed by this belief system. Again, this is my personal opinion.

She's trying way, way too hard … to impress, to stay "current" (whatever that means), to fashion herself as some sort of great visionary or radical. I think she was that a lot more when she wasn't trying so desperately to prove it.


First and foremost I want to emphasise that i am a fan, not a fanatic. I speak as someone who has bought every album, defended every film, purchased every DVD and went to see as many tours, even the West End play, as i could afford. I've been a Madonna fan since 1989, when i was 10 years old. I understand her right to do, say and believe whatever she chooses (within the realms of the law, obviously) and it is in this vein that i respond to the essence of some of her sentiments spoused in this article; i'm not being critical for the sake of it. Comparing yourself to Freida Kahlo, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King? Is she serious? She'd give up everything for human rights? Is she having a laugh? Give up what exactly - hard cash? Her botox treats? I agree with the essence and aspirations but if she continues to spout this garbage i'm done. One can be a humanitarian without presenting yourself as a Messiah and saviour. The world already has Bono and he's a self-absorbed, hypocritical prick. An extremely talented one but a prick and hypocrite nonetheless who waxes lyrically about social justice and world poverty while dodging paying tax and using "charity" as a legitimate tax dodge. Considering her huge wealth and many, many business incentives, i can't help but feel that Madonna's freedom fighting B.S. is a holow facade. The whole grandiose levels of comparison to world leaders and true heroes is mortifying. Get a grip, please!
