Weirdly, this one didn't hit me too hard. Finding out that Kevin Bacon was hitting 50 this year, now that made me feel old.

Fuck off, whippersnapper! I was young once, and you'll be old someday (if you're lucky).

Thank god time marched us right on out of the eighties.

I thought she already was fifty.

The same terrible fate befalls me, your beloved Fnarf, in just a couple of weeks.

Posted by Fnarf | August 16, 2008 10:49 AM

Don't worry, Fnarfness. Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth turned 55 (!) this year, and she's still as cool cool cool as ever.

Madonna, meanwhile, was already a pathetic old cow in 1985 at age 27, and therefore really, no really--no, I mean really--needs to STFU ASAP, IMHO.

firstly: cookie monster? you are so right it hurts.

lastly: oh, no, farf, no! i forbid it! by the power invested in me by the voices in my head, i now declare you 39 forever! zap! zam! kapowie!

so don't worry, now--i've done that for a lot of people. it totally works. every time.

She looks fabulous for fifty.

She looks fabulous for forty, frankly.

And she's still got it. Have you heard her new song, "Miles Away"? I am really looking forward to the tour.

Posted by Rachel | August 16, 2008 12:06 PM

Her new song is not called "Miles Away."

It is called "Give it 2 Me."

"If you can handle it, undress me" ???!!

Remember when it was okay to have a little belly fat and thin lips? This video brought it all back...oh to be 11 again and getting lace shirts and rubber bracelets for Christmas from indulgent relatives.

Oh that we all look as hot at 50! =)

Posted by dawicksta | August 16, 2008 2:54 PM

You know... 50 is nothing.

Do you know who's at the top of the dance charts right now? In fact, she just knocked Madonna (and Give It 2 Me) of the top spot.

Give up?

It's Yoko Ono. She's seventy-fucking-five years old.

Madge is going to have to keep bringing it for another 25 years if she wants to break that record. Yoko is the oldest ever at the top of the dance charts.

There is an Arabic word which is pronounced almost identically to the word 'Madonna'. It means "something which is no longer fresh".

youth cult is so passe

That's what old people say to feel better about themselves instead of admitting they are jealous.

Also, I loved Lucky Star. I still sing along in the car when it comes on the radio (and I look like such a queer). But I could take or leave Madonna otherwise.

My theory is that in the next 5 years they should be releasing the anti-aging drugs.

So, the savvy bachelor should go around visiting nursing homes, and like ask to see the ladies yearbook.

Then, marry someone who looked good in like 1934, dope her up with the pills, and voila!

Mike in MO - with the jerking knees

I am younger than you - I just do not get all the age crap - if you love life and people - and lots of different textures - well then - youth age cult is stupid, sterile, uni vision and big time rube

too, it helps to understand how good some older guys are in bed - oh, my God - I told the secret

some one has reading my beloved MichaelK . . .

I once picked up a book of photos taken when Madonna was 20 and achingly beautiful -- vulnerable and a lot more virginal looking than in the video.

Did that video remind anyone else of that old "Beauty and the Beast" TV show?

Posted by not famous | August 17, 2008 8:59 AM

She looks like she has NO ARMS in the video!

(The Give It 3 Me Video, not the Like a Virgin video.)

Posted by carialisis | August 17, 2008 2:33 PM

This is what she looked like yesterday, at her birthday party.

What do you thinK? Hag?

Posted by glabula | August 18, 2008 7:01 AM

What does it say on her purse?

What's with the Wonder Woman arm bands?

Posted by John | August 18, 2008 7:34 AM

She looks kind of good.

@ Freddy (if anyone is still reading this thread): I'm joking for gosh's sake! I'm dating a guy in his fiftys and, yes, he is wonderful in bed.

But it is nice to be (relatively) young and hot ;-)

Posted by Mike in MO | August 18, 2008 8:38 AM

You want to know who looks REALLY hot for her age?
