Here's hoping Lourdes favors us with a tell-all book after Madonna croaks.
It seems to me that she is trying to show off her face and body without actually doing so ("Don't mind me, just casually putting on panty hose, teehee!").
Madonna is a case study in how not to age gracefully.
Ah c'mon. People sing in the shower because bathrooms tend to have the coolest acoustics to sing in, it concentrates, amplifies and echoes back and she spent millions on that bathroom and had never gotten it into a magazine spread of her house before. Opportunity and all that.I kinda hope post plague she follows Mae West's footsteps and starts going all Myra Breckinridge/Sextet to attract attention.
Grace has also done some good music in the last twenty years. Then again, I adored Grace in the day and knew Madge was a poseur.That's the thing: not everyone can be Grace Jones and age as well as she did (partly because black don't crack, partly because Grace is probably a witch).
To be fair, Babs can be pretty exceptional from time to time and she's self-absorbed as fuck (she's been that way since she started dating Jon Peters back in the 70s and the remake for A Star Is Born being a complete clusterfuck during production), but it's not a constant stream of cringe either. She's still a good performer who can put on a good show, and who's also aware she's not getting any younger and can also adjust her repertoire depending on how her voice changes. Unlike Madge.
That's her during a concert in 2019:
Compare that to Madge during Eurovision the same year (putting a filming of the live performance instead of what was on TV since the latter got autotuned:
I wonder if that woman has a single real friend in the world. Plenty of sycophants, no doubt, but is there anybody who actually likes her?
She looks as awful as she likely is. A big black hole of need filled with phoniness.
She had to cancel a lot of tour dates late last year due to a knee injury. She resumed performing in 2020 but that only made matters worse.She mentions how much of her quarantine days have been spent recovering from an injury. Does anyone know what she's talking about?
Something about Hollywood makes women start to hate their nose. Jennifer Grey was recently mentioned as one of Madonna's old friends, and she essentially killed her career via nose job.I can somewhat understand why a loon might want to erase all wrinkles and get an (or many) eyejob trying to not age, but why did she do that to her nose? It makes the rest of it look even worse and noses usually don't age until you're extremely old.
I have great respect for Loreena Mckennitt in that regard.Madonna is a case study in how not to age gracefully.
Joan Jett was born the same year as Madonna, and she looks so much better. She looks like a normal sixty-year old woman with some slightly ostentatious eye shadow, which I think is a lot more tasteful than the Vulcan-Realdoll-look Madge has going on.

Celebrities need to realize that plastic surgery is not the answer. It's okay to age, Jesus Christ. We're human beings, not naked mole rats.
Yeah, Guy Ritchie mentioned that. He said he couldn’t hold her at night when they went to bed because she was pretty much wrapped in plastic. They eventually started sleeping in separate bedrooms because he couldn’t stand it.Didn't her ex have all sorts of stories about her basically sleeping with her entire body slathered in $300 per jar face cream and zipped up in a body bag to retain moisture? I remember hearing about 4 hour treadmill sessions, forcing the kids onto weird diets, obsession with botox etc.
Aside from her nightmare-fuel face, she has a fold in her left shoulder, like a baby or a deathfat. She definitely has something implanted there.Yeah, Guy Ritchie mentioned that.

I couldn’t watch that video. Madge looked way too much like some weird alien emerging from its primordial slime.
