Justin Bieber and Madonna play ‘Never Have I Ever’ with Ellen

justin bieber madonna ellen

Justin Bieber just can’t stay away from Ellen lately, so of course he had to pop in when Ellen was interviewing Madonna this week to play a round of ‘Never Have I Ever’. You won’t glean anything new and/or shocking from this ~totally kewl game~, but here are a few highlights, if it’s something that interests you:

  • Madonna has had sex with more than one person on the same day
  • Justin claims he’s never been kicked out of a bar
  • Madonna flirts terribly with Justin because she likes younger men

I mean, I was really struggling to even come up with 3 good bullet points there.

Well, that was… fun?

Madonna thinks gays have it better than women

madonna

Madonna can’t go too long without saying some dumb shit, so she decided to run her mouth to OUT about how the gay community has it so much better than women do, which… oh man.

“Gay rights are way more advanced than women’s rights. People are a lot more open-minded to the gay community than they are to women, period.” For women, she feels, the situation has hardly improved since 1983. “It’s moved along for the gay community, for the African-American community, but women are still just trading on their ass. To me, the last great frontier is women.”

Coming from Madonna, the analysis seems significant. I ask her to elaborate. “Women are still the most marginalized group,” she says. “They’re still the group that people won’t let change.” To be a successful woman, she asserts, “you must fit into this box: You must behave this way, dress this way.” Immediately after our first interview, Madonna was snapped by a paparazzo upon exiting the building and endured criticism from The Daily Mail for wearing a “sheer corset, which left little to the imagination.” This seems to be Madonna’s point: Thirty-three years after she became, by her own reckoning, the first female pop star to make use of subcultures and to express herself “with an overt sexuality through her work” (“Before me, if it was anyone,” she says, “maybe Debbie Harry, but she was less overt”), Madonna’s costume changes are still attracting harassment from tabloid moralists.

She continues: “You’re still categorized — you’re still either a virgin or a whore. If you’re a certain age, you’re not allowed to express your sexuality, be single, or date younger men.” Now in her 50s, Madonna has become a cougar virtuoso, cycling through three male-model boyfriends under the age of 30 in less than four years. This is behavior, Madonna points out, for which “a man would never be questioned or criticized.” Madonna seems to be thinking primarily of straight men: Grand old queens with a taste for youth, like Liberace — or Stephen Fry — might empathize with Madonna’s predicament.

As a woman, I think I’m pretty qualified to speak on this. Yeah, we have a LONG way to go. Feminism is still REALLY important – particularly because of how badly people STILL react to that word. But to sit there and say that no group is more marginalized than women is absolutely fucking ridiculous, I’m sorry. Of course, Madonna’s straight, white and rich, so of course she can say something so ignorant without even thinking twice. I should be surprised, but I’m just not.

Time to retire, Madonna.

Madonna has some advice for Kanye West

madonna rolling stone

If anyone has been around the musical block a few times, it’s Madonna. While lately she’s lost it a bit, you can’t deny her legendary status and the fact that she kinda knows what she’s talking about in a lot of ways. To that end, she’s got some advice for Kanye West, with whom she’s worked a bit in the studio (when she could actually get him to pay attention to anything) which all boils down to the fact that he needs to chill the hell out.

From Rolling Stone:

“Don’t go to awards shows looking for justice,” she says in interviews for Rolling Stone‘s new cover story. “That’s like trying to find a needle in a haystack. Just go and have fun. I never got too engaged with who wins awards or not, because I don’t honestly think it’s that important. So that part of him I can’t relate to. Like, what’s the point of fighting for somebody to … like, ‘This person should have got it?’… I think sometimes he takes things too seriously.”

She also offered her thoughts on West as a creative force. “It’s really hard to describe Kanye in one sentence, so I may have to use several,” she says. “He’s a brilliant madman. He can’t help himself. Like, he doesn’t have the same filters other people have. He has to blurt things out – he’s always saying inappropriate stuff. But he also has brilliant ideas, if you can get him to pay attention long enough, working with him in the studio. He would come and go. He would drive me bonkers, because he’s got so many things going on in his life. And this seemed to be the theme of my record, working with people who can’t get off their phone, can’t stop tweeting, can’t focus and finish a song. It drove me crazy. But when they did pay attention, it was brilliant. I was, like, running around with a butterfly net. But I feel like the music business needs him, because everyone’s become so politically correct, so safe. I don’t always agree with the things he says or does – I don’t always like his music, even. But he’s a beautiful mess. I love him.”

Pot calling the kettle black there about the saying inappropriate shit, isn’t it, Madonna? Also, it actually kinda sounds like she doesn’t really like Kanye at all. He’s an ADD-ridden madman who takes himself too seriously and has no filter. Wow, he sure sounds like a barrel of laughs.

Madonna ate it at the BRIT Awards – Yikes!

madonna

Tonight was the BRIT Awards over in London – think of the Grammys, but slightly (only very slightly) less awkward. Taylor Swift performed, Kanye West performed, even Madonna performed… and promptly ate it when her dancers yanked her backwards down the stairs. Uh oh… someone’s getting fired!

Thankfully, someone was around to take a Vine:

Enjoy this visual for years to come, because it’s so, so good.  What the hell happened here? I mean, potential problems like this are usually what dress rehearsals are for, but… who knows.

Madonna wants the word police to “f*ck off”

madonna

Madonna lets a lot of reckless shit come out of her mouth. She uses words she’s not supposed to (lest we forget her referring to her white son as “#disnigga” on Instagram), uses the likes of Nelson Mandela to promote her shitty new album, over-utilizes the word “bitch”… I mean, that last one is not as much offensive as it is stupid. Anyway, Madonna may be a hot mess, but it’s not your place to tell her what she can and can’t say. Like, for real. In fact, she wants the “word police” to “fuck off”. Huh.

From Billboard:

On the album, you use the word “bitch” a lot (“Bitch I’m Madonna,” “Unapologetic Bitch”), which some bloggers have suggested should be banned.

I think that’s bullshit. The word police can f— off. I don’t want to be policed! I’m not interested in political correctness. The word “bitch” means a lot of different things. Everything is about context. When I first moved to England and heard the word “c–t,” I was horrified. People were calling each other c–ts! And then I realized that, in that culture, it was different — they slapped each other on the back and said, “Who’s the c–t, right, you’re my best mate!” The word “f—” doesn’t just mean sexual intercourse. I mean, “You’re a stupid f—,” “Are you going to f— with me?” “F– off!” (Laughs.) Sex has nothing to do with any of those expressions, and the same goes for “bitch.” If I say to you, “I’m a badass bitch,” I’m owning myself, I’m saying, “I’m strong, I’m tough, and don’t mess with me.” If I say, “Why are you being such a bitch to me?,” well, that means something else.

I mean… what is she even talking about? I love that she’s suddenly on her British shit now, which has exactly zero to do with anything, to distract from the issue at hand. I mean, I get her point, to be fair – if Madonna wants to say “bitch” every other word and make it desperately obvious that she’s old and out of touch (I mean “old” in the figurative term, like not with the times, not age – I know some amazing old people), then fair play. Knock yourself out. But I really love when people use the “free speech” and “context” bullshit to avoid taking responsibility for their nonsense. BYE, MADONNA.

What Do We Think Of Madonna’s Video, “Living for Love”?

madonna

Madonna is pulling out all the stops for her latest album, like flirting with Drake on Instagram and pissing people off with the album cover, but now there’s a video out and I think it’s damn time we let the work speak for itself, because when Madonna speaks for the work, shit gets messy.

SO here’s the video for “Living for Love” from her official Vevo page. Basically she’s running around dressed as Matador while her voice sounds like it’s been filtered through a Pac Man machine. Seriously, what’s with all the bullshit they did to her voice? She barely sounds human anymore. Gotta say though, her bod is still amazing, and will forever be amazing. I just wish that the song was better. For me right now, pop music is all Katy Perry and Taylor Swift and while I adore them in their own ways, I kind of wish Madge would just swoop in and reclaim her throne…but it’s just not gonna happen with stuff like this.

But what do you think? Here’s the video, and if you don’t feel like watching it, I’ve included some stills for you to peruse through. Enjoy!

Madonna and Drake are flirting on Instagram and it’s creepy

drake madonna insta

Madonna is still desperately trying to be “down with the kids”, so she’s pulling out all the stops. She released her latest video via SnapChat, of all fucking things, and now she’s renting rappers to appear on her songs in hopes of making anyone, of any age, want to listen to them. (Seriously – have you HEARD the new album? It’s absolutely awful.)

With that in mind, I suppose it’s not all that surprising to see that Madonna decided to get her flirt on with Drake via Instagram. Even more bizarre is the fact that Drake is the one that initiated this, writing “I wanna ride with you”. What followed was a bizarre exchange that I just do not understand.

drake madonna

Help me understand. Please.

Apparently Madonna hired Drake to rap in the final part of “Best Night”, one of the “highly sexual” tracks on Rebel Heart. Make it stop.
