Y’know, we were among her biggest fans. We were one of the few things left supporting Madonna, other than her pointy space-alien bra.
While most people were complaining about how Madonna had lost it – gotten all mature and “mysticalized,” and others were hoping she’d shut her socially-conscious mouth and only open it to sing, we were the first to rush to her defense.
We rather enjoyed her ventures into politics and charity, thoughtful activism and spiritual exploration. Meanwhile, her music matured, yet you could still dance to it.
Well, Madonna released another new song from her upcoming album yesterday. It’s called (dry heave) Girl Gone Wild. And it kinda just sucks. In an apparent quest to reclaim her own youth and the dollars from today’s youth Madonna has regressed into a parody of her 1980s-self – only not as good.
And she’ll probably get a cease and desist letter from Girls Gone Wild boob-peddler Joe Francis!
UPDATE: Damn. She did.
Is it as bad as her first pre-pubescent single Give Me All Your Luvin’?
Well, no – if one poke in the eye with a pointy bra doesn’t hurt as bad as two pokes in both your eyes.
But what the hell, you’ve got ears. You decide:
Madge’s new album will be released on March 26th. If we still have eyes and ears left.
UPDATE: Cease and desist, Madonna.
