I’m Not Convinced, Madonna

This is bad, Madge. Just bad. It sounds like cheap video game music and are you singing with that stupid, affected British accent? Is that what I’m hearing?

As for you, Nicki Minaj and MIA, I get it. You want to be featured in an iconic legend’s music video. And that’s fine. Not many people can say they did that, and as far as furthering your career, I can honestly say I don’t blame you. If I were in your shoes, I’d probably do the same thing, and that makes me no better than any of you. I bow in submission.

I don’t know. Maybe I’m jaded because it seems like whenever Madonna opens her stupid mouth anymore, stupid things come out. And though that shouldn’t surprise me, it still doesn’t fail to leave me mildly appalled. Maybe it’s because I don’t personally think Madonna’s done anything worthwhile since ‘Ray of Light’, and everything thereafter has been poisoned because it just doesn’t stack up. Honestly, come on. What was better than this:

Honestly. “Oooh oooh oooh oooh – if I could melt your heart; oooh oooh oooh oooh – we’d never be apart.” That’s some good quality musical crap right there, folks. Even if she does kind of sound like Miss Piggy when she sings that song, it was one bad-ass song with one bad-ass video. This? This football game BS? Even if it’s for the Super Bowl? It’s overplayed. Ever hear of Gwen Stefani, Madge? ‘Hollaback Girl’?

It’s been done to death. Nada Surf? ‘Popular’?

I rest my case. Let’s get real, shall we?

  • I heard the lyrics as “L-U-V McDonalds!” etc. and was rather astonished that Madonna was hard up enough to do an ad for them. It’s certainly very much like one.

  • she has a great body for her age, she knows how to produce catchy music, and she has done an amazing job of keeping her name circulating. HOWEVER. this is like…some avril lavigne shit. i would have so much more respect for her if she would cut the “i’m still able to compete with the young’ens!” crap and embrace the fact that she’s a world-renowned superstar who doesn’t have to stoop to this level to become relevant again.
