Madonna Sparkles On Her 50th Birthday

August 17th, 2008 // 18 Comments

Madonna celebrated being half a century old by throwing on some shiny accessories over an all-black ensemble and stepping out with her husband Guy Ritchie. The couple hit up the Volstead club in London’s West End.

At least these two aren’t breaking up over her birthday. That in itself is quite the present. Also, she looks good in these pics and that’s not always the case, even with her “new new” face.

Here’s to hoping for 50 more years of scandal and peroxide!

    You really think she looks good? I would hate to see those appendages on my husband. Furthermore, I find it deeply offensive that anyone would find it “looking good” that a woman treats her face as it was playdough in order to look “young”. The results making her look like an alien instead of looking her age, i.e. 50. Shame on anyone that celebrates this travesty. Madonna, stop taking steroids, stop having surgical alterations, stop making music, stop thinking you are twenty (or 36), start enjoying your life and money. Don’t go out as a pitiful laughing stock to us former fans.

    I would hate to see those appendages on my 90 year old father let alone a woman of 50.
    I also resent the implication that a woman should be said to “look good” when she has spent a million dollars on treating her face as a surgical playboard. Shame on you.

    Strange to see these comments, Shame on what? Why does everyone assume everyone that looks good has had surgery? It’s a strange assumption. She may have she may have not, you don’t know so don’t assume. My mother turns 66 this week and she has no wrinkles, and looks 40. She has never had surgery or even visited a beauty spa. The truth is if you eat well. have good genes and look after yourself you will always look good. Stop winging.
    The other truth is that stars with talent got to where they are for a reason…no need to bitch and moan and gossip

    Oh gross what are they wearing!!! Guy is so serious all the time and that’s a pathetic excuse of a smile.

    Guy is HOT and she… well, you gotta give it to her, she made harself, she is now insanely rich and the best part is that she probably doesn’t give a rat’s ass for what we all think about her. I say that’s the way to go!

    I can’t believe that anyone that looks at Madonna imagines her looks are not “made” in a surgical establishment. Furthermore I don’t believe that anyone who is secure in their skin needs constant visits to such places. She was spunky, she was strong, now she is sending the message aging is BAD.

    The best thing about her turning 50 is knowing that a narcissistic witch like her is probably in agony. Nothing signals the end of youth like a 50th birthday. You would have to be an idiot not to know that Madonna has had massive amounts of surgery, botox, and other injections to try appear as if she is still 25. It’s pathetic that she tries so hard to cling to youth.

    old hag, she does not sparcle!

    She looks pale and exhausted to me.And those veiny arms! They could be in a horror movie. She certainly has had work done, she has that stretched up over her ears and zipped look about her face. Hopefully she’ll have enough sense to stop soon before she ends up looking like a freakshow.

    I think it’s time for her to retire gracefully now. She had a long reign as the Queen of Pop but she needs to give up the throne now and take her place as a legend. 50 year olds are has beens to teenagers and young people in general.

    Haggard from the struggle for youth.

    This pathetic need to look young is starting to make a lot of women look very, very weird. It’s disappointing that a woman who was supposed to be such a maverick, and rebel, and different, chooses to fall into that trap just so (she thinks) she can still be hot. I miss the days of aging gracefully.

    She looks like sh$t

    well, i wonder what most of you monkeys look like in the flesh…so what if she had some work done! maybe she did – maybe she didn’t.

    that’s her fuckin’ business!

    i think she sets an example to me of living a healthy lifestyle — exercise, foods, etc. and if she wants to ehance her features to make her look younger then who gives a shit. lord knows she gots the money to do it.

    you haters need to shut the fuck up and do a sit-up or two!

    Madonna is the queen of pop and an American icon. She has not been arrested for drugs or a DWI. She loves her children. They cannot watch TV and eat hamburger helper and end up weighing 300 lbs like the rest of America. She takes care of herself and her family. She is to be admired and appreciated not criticized. You go girl!
