re: Third Sign of the Apocalypse: Madonna

Posted by on November 2 at 14:34 PM

I’ve seen some ink on Madonna recently, but mostly it’s been about the Blender cover Mrs. Thing was supposedly supposed to get but was instead handed to one untalented fembot named Ashlee Simpson. In theory, it’s great that Madonna’s still going strong—physically, spiritually, as a mother…not as an actress—but in actuality her edge has been blunted to a soft corner, something that the big media machines will tip their hat to at times but the rest of us could really care less about. (The last thing I’ll credit her for is introducing people to William Orbit years back…)
