Okay, BOXsters, generally I would save my type time for really important stuff, but all this hub bub about Madonna has made me want to take up the pen (keyboard) and toss my two cents into the ring.
Firstly, lest we forget, that this … is Madonna. Personally, I totally applaud the naughty girl for whatever she does, in public or in private. She is the epitome of a 21st Century woman : AFiercekitty Domme with the entire planet – but a cheeky, real woman/girl who has always put home, family and the traditional structure first, in private. She was never ashamed to admit that she needed a strong man to temper her over-the-top creativity and antics; and she inspired me to live those same principals.
Now, I won’t get on the anti-feminism train here – but it isn’t easy trying to be a “girl” in a world that demands I re-raise a generation of men who had no male role models; or that my only choices for colleagues and friends are women still trying to espouse an ideology in a world that no longer needs the feminist rhetoric. But Madonna gives me that strength and exemplifies that a balance can be found if it’s sought and lived by, no matter what.
But, back to the topic at hand here ….
So, she had a wardrobe malfunction in a predominantly Muslim country. Well, you know what? Every single person that bought a ticket to that show was hoping for exactly that. They got it. The rest of the world is just pissed that they missed it. Let’s move on, shall we?
I cracked up when I heard she’d mooned the audience in Rome, subsequently. That’s my girl. Express Yourself. My only sadness was that there weren’t six of the best displayed there, as well.
More seriously, though, and it’s likelier GaGa deserves a spanking than Madge for this, but the feud between the two must stop. They’re both the same. To my mind, GaGa is going to continue the legacy of loving yourself and not being ashamed of ANYTHING you are or do into the next century. Egos are the real issue here, but together these women would be a force for rehabilitating this post-gender destructive world once and for all. (I’d do it, but nobody listens to me).
Who cares if Born This Way is similar to Express Yourself – Um, am I mistaken or don’t they both sing that same message anyway? Madonna should be flattered that Stef was inspired –whether consciously or not; and, Stef should be grateful that Madonna paved the way for who she’s allowed to be today.
As for me, I love you both. Keep on keeping on; and, in the paraphrased, immortal words of my friend that just this morning passed from this earth, “just get along”.
