Madge Still Trying to Push Buttons
Madge's Confessions of a Tired Vagina tour opened last night in Los Angeles. She went on 50-minutes late and performed for 2 hours and mostly did songs from her latest album. Madge again tried to push buttons by dressing up as Jesus and screening images of Bush with Hitler.
The enthusiastic crowd at the Los Angeles Forum included Nicole Richie, Rosie O'Donnell and Madonna's Kabbalah guru, Rabbi Yehuda Berg.
On Sunday, Madonna made her entrance lowered from the ceiling in a giant disco ball. Outfitted in dominatrix-like riding gear, she sang her new song "Future Lovers" accompanied by shirtless male dancers with ball gags in their mouths.
During "Live to Tell," she wore a crown of thorns and hung from a giant mirrored cross as video screens showed scenes of third-world poverty.
Another video montage mixed images of Bush and Tony Blair with footage of Adolf Hitler and Osama bin Laden. Midway through the new song "I Love New York," she cracked a joke about Bush and oral sex.
Madge will tour the country for 2-months before heading to Europe and Japan. There are also rumors that she will perform in Russia's Red Square for the first time.
I was going to go see this shit, but I'm not about to drop $350 to see some half-assed dancing and singing. Besides, they will show this shit on HBO or Showtime and that way I can ridicule her from the privacy of my sofa without getting bitchy stares from old ass queens.
