do we appreciate madonna, of course

madonnais it nice that she got naked and semi-naked for a recent Interview magazine spread

duh.

should everyone get lingerie and pose in motels with forgiving lighting? probably.

but heres the thing about madonna: she is incapable of shocking us any longer, but that doesnt mean it’s over for her.

however, this ultra strong image is played out. we expect it from her. and i dont wanna say it’s boring but it’s, well, it’s boring.

how about show us some vulnerability. you can be strong and confident and the boss and still be fragile.

if i was the photographer id say madonna, lets try to work on a scene where you play the role of the near-virgin

i know it’s a stretch, but heres something you havent done in forever. lets try to take pictures that would fit into that Springsteen song he wrote for the Pointer Sisters.

you know the one

I’m driving in my car
I turn on the radio
I’m pulling you close
You just say no
You say you don’t like it
But girl I know you’re a liar
‘Cause when we kiss
Ooooh

Fire

because sadly this bored dominatrix who has run out of men to overpower no longer has any edge

how many times are you gonna sing the same song?

Interview is andy warhol’s magazine

would we have loved him if all he painted was soup cans his whole life.

madonna in disney princess costumes

madonna in petticoats

madonna in pretty things.

that would be photos that would go viral.

but this is just one more session that people are going to forget. sadly.
