Madonna Does Yoga & Pilates, Do You Think She’s Satisfied?

January 30th, 2014 // 2 Comments

Do you guys remember where that’s from? Hopefully Madonna singing “American Life” will ring a bell.

The Material Girl was spotted in Los Angeles today leaving the gym with the help of a mystery friend. I guess that leg of hers hasn’t completely healed yet.

Although it seemed fine as she performed with Miley Cyrus last night for Miley’s MTV Unplugged. I’m sure you’ve all read my thoughts on that already. You know, I don’t know how I feel about Madonna anymore. 

She really seems like she’s trying to cling on to a youth that no longer wants her. Is that too mean? Maybe. But she’s a serial boy-toy dater, and she keeps finding these young singer and vaguely latching on to them–see Britney Spears2003.

I have a lot of opinions of Madonna right now, but we’ll get to all of them another time. For now, launch the gallery and check out all the photos of Madonna being helped around. Also, her hat says, “Commes Des FuckDown”. I love that.

  1. As much as people say she’s latching on to young stars, remember they too are also, in great numbers, latching on to her… maybe they see it as just as advantageous to their career as Madonna does to hers. Madonna has been pretty decent about “passing the torch” to several younger pop-tarts over the years, with the exception of you-know-who-who-has-tried-to-steal-her-career. I think that a lot of younger artists want to learn from someone who has 30+ years in the business and has had pretty consistent and stellar instincts, both in songwriting and in performance and image. She’s got a killer track record of hits, after all.

    What I think Madonna has been doing for the last few years is challenging our ideas of what a mature woman should do or should be like. Most of society seems to want her and pretty much anyone over the age of 40 to “go away” because of their age and say they aren’t relevant any more. The only older women who seem to get respect are people like Meryl Streep or Judi Dench who, for the most part, “act their age” whatever that means. The fact is, Madonna has always been a woman to defy convention. She’s always been more physically active and more apologetically sexual than most women. “I’m not sorry… it’s Human Nature… absolutely no regrets”. Why should she change who she is as a person because she’s over 50? Because we are uncomfortable with it? That’s nuts. Yes, celebrities have a “product to sell” and therefore have to consider their image and such, but at what cost? To redefine who they are as people? And let’s not forget that men like Mick Jagger and Steve Tyler can squeeze into pleather pants and shake their asses at ages 70+ and most people don’t give a crap and still go to their concerts. I just saw KISS was performing a little while ago… and they are still in that ridiculous drag kitty cat make-up all these years later. But does anyone say “oh, they’re too old”… “they should go away”… no? Hmm…. why not, I wonder?

    The only women I can think of that have gotten away with aging in the pop/rock genre is Cher and Tina Turner. I think people liked Tina’s come-back story and she seems to be a pretty awesome person. Cher, well, Madonna is basically in the same spot as Cher was in the 80s… people treated her as a joke (plastic surgery, younger men, outrageous outfits), as well as admiring her longevity (Cher and cockroaches will survive the Apocalypse).

    It seems a lot of people also think Madonna’s a bitch, and want to tear her down for that, but I think her roughness is really a cover and she just has a very caustic, sarcastic humour that goes over a lot of people’s heads. She’s also done a tremendous amount of social work and activism… I can’t think of too many others who have done more… Bono, Elton John and Bob Geldof are definitely up there.

    I say go ahead and show your boobs and wear your Quaker hat and hate hydrangeas and date Brazilian boy-toys… live and let live. People are far too concerned about trying to make her something that’s she not. She’s never backed down before so why now?

  2. This is not all that objective… “Either she’s faking it or she’s hurt” is bogus and shallow. You’re being far too over critical.

    Who’s to say she didn’t legitimately hurt her leg and is taking some level of mild pain killer, enough to let her work out a bit and even perform?

    Hell… I’m 29 years old and hurt my lower back. This morning, I was having trouble standing up, but a few tabs of ibuprofen and I don’t feel much pain until I move around for 30 minutes.

    It’s called being human. Sometimes you hurt. Sometimes OTC pain killers work and sometimes they don’t. She wouldn’t be the first person in the history of the human race to experience function-impairing pain for a short time period.
