When you look at Madonna, is her gorgeous skin the first thing you admire? Probably not. However, she clearly believes people want to follow her routine, as she’s releasing her own line of skincare products called MDNA Skin. The line is coming out SOON, with a pop-up shop opening in the next week Omotesando, Tokyo.
You can get the products at that shop ’til February 23, when you can then get them everywhere else around the world. There are only a few products in the line to start with – a clay mask, a skin rejuvenator and a facial serum. I’m assuming Madonna doesn’t use her own products.
Michelle Peck, skin care artist and Madonna’s brand ambassador, released the following statement:
“The brand’s goal is to challenge women and their awareness about the art of beauty and skin care.
Using these products routinely as part of daily skin care regime creates firm, resilient and radiant skin overflowing with energy after every use.”
Nah, I’m good.
I’m not ragging on Madonna for getting older – we all do, and I don’t think that’s anything to be ashamed of or anything that makes a woman “less beautiful”. I do, however, think Madonna has had so much plastic surgery that it renders anything she might have to say about “skincare” and “rejuvination” completely moot. Why should I believe your products are going to work when they clearly didn’t work for you, or else you wouldn’t have gone under the knife so many times and/or shot yourself up with so much Botox?

Let’s take a look at what celebs were wearing this week and dub a “winner” for BEST, WORST, and WTF.

We just can’t seem to get Madonna back in her cage lately, it seems. Beyond the grasping-for-straws desperation of her addition to Macklemore’s Grammy performance, to her Miley duet and now her performance alongside Russian political and feminist punk group Pussy Riot at an upcoming concert, I’m fucking sick of her. We get it, Madonna – it’s tough getting older and you want the kids to still like you. This ain’t the way, girl.
That’s right, Madonna will be introducing the recently freed Maria Alyokhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova at the Amnesty International concert being held in New York on February 5. She said in a statement that she admires them and can’t wait to join them on stage… because what better free publicity could you ask for than aligning yourself with one of the biggest news stories of the past several years?
I know, I know, I’m being cynical, but… seriously? Why won’t Madonna just go away and let us remember the good times? Your legacy is still your legacy – you don’t have to keep trying to make new shit work. Madonna paved the way for so many of the young female artists out there right now, and that’s fantastic! But now it’s time for her to chill out.
On one hand, I really do enjoy the fact that she’s refused to give in to society’s view that women are of no value once they’re past a certain age, but my reasoning for wanting Madonna to retire has nothing to do with how old she is and everything to do with how old her CAREER is and how desperately she’s trying to relive the heyday that’s long since passed, which is making her become like that embarrassing drunk aunt that no one ever wants to invite to family events because you spend the whole time cringing at her.

Miley Cyrus got her very own MTV Unplugged special which aired last night, and on it, she and Madonna teamed up for a mashup of Madge’s ‘Don’t Tell Me’ and Miley’s ‘We Can’t Stop’. It was about as strange (and actually strangely good) as you might expect:
You can say what you’d like about Miley – and she’s a hot mess of a human being – but I do think she’s musically talented and while I’m not a “fan”, I do have high hopes for what her musical career could be once she gets this bullshit out of her system and settles down into her artistry a bit more. Plus, Bangerz does have some really good tracks on it. She’s got potential, for sure.
As for Madonna… girl, keep trying.

I don’t think anyone would deny that Madonna is an absolute legend. She was an incredible artist spanning several decades who changed the world of pop music forever and offered provocative cultural shifts unlike any we’d seen for a long while. But her time has passed. Madonna is now in her 50s and has lost touch with “the youth”. She’s trying her hardest to stay relevant and hip, but it’s not really working. Even wearing a gold grill and referring to her white son as “#disnigga” is only serving to piss people off more than anything. Turns out, that’s apparently why she’s doing it.
As she told Ryan Seacrest at the red carpet of the Grammys:
“Yeah, I’m grillin’. It pisses everybody off when I wear my grill, so that’s why I wear it. I wear it when I don’t have to eat. Actually, I’ve learned to eat with my grill in.”
Well, that’s… special. You’re really showin’ em who’s boss there, Madonna! In a way, I understand her love of antagonizing people. I do it to you guys every day! ;-) But at the same time, there’s a limit. When you’re doing things that are potential cultural appropriation or even outright racist (no, adopting a black kid does not make you exempt from this) to “piss people off”, there’s a serious problem. Madonna needs to have a few seats and sit and think about what the hell she’s doing.

So The Grammys bore a new meme: Pharrell‘s hat.
Sorry, but I’m not ready for this to be a new thing.
Let’s take a look at what others wore to this craptacular awards show!
