Why I still love Madonna



I am a big Madonna fan. I practically withdrew everything I had in the bank to get a good seat at her recent Manila concert and it was worth every cent. I would like to point out, however, some instances before and during the show that kind of made me uncomfortable.

Here are 10 of them:

1. The concert producer blasting our mobiles with text messages announcing the gates will open at 5 p.m. You know what? Madonna came out at 10:30 p.m. Most concerts I had gone to usually ended around that time. To think sleeping time for most senior citizens – and some from my generation – is around 11 p.m.

2. Dancers wearing what looked like a nun’s headdress paired with bra tops and panties came out to do some pole dancing. It may be well-choreographed but it was somewhat disturbing.

3. Then there’s that dance interpretation of The Last Supper.

4. Another was what seemed like an orgy involving male-on-male and female-on-female pairs, all simulating sex moves.

5. It was kind of icky, too, that Madonna asked a female in the audience to take a whiff of a bouquet of flowers, after which the singer said her privates smelled like that.

6. Instead of a cheerful hi or how are you, Madonna greeted fans with profanities.

7. She would also, time and again, flash her middle finger to audiences.

8. Madonna went on to enlighten us that b****h is an acronym for: Beautiful, Intelligent, Charming, and Horny.

9. She would also tell her audience to swear at her. I couldn’t.

10. Most of her new songs deal with rebellion, sex, and the so-called Illuminati, a gossip fodder of an organization supposedly involving high profile demon-worshiping Hollywood personalities. I cannot vouch for its existence but you can Google it.

Did I hate Madonna after the concert? Nope. I still love the woman. I grew up listening to her songs. I used to dedicate “Crazy For You ” to every high school crush I had. I used to dance to “Borderline” and “Lucky Star” in what we call discos (places that you now all call clubs) with just water (no blue pill!) to keep me going. In short, Madonna made my teenage life fun!

The Madonna I’ve seen at the “Rebel Heart” concert reminds me of how I felt being spanked by my parents. It was harsh and painful, but you ultimately forget about it. What remains are the good memories, like the day your mom treated you to ice cream, or when dad brought you to the movies.

It’s the same with Madonna. Some aspects of the show might have been too jarring but I know I will forget all about it. But I will still remember all the happy memories I had growing up listening to the pop star – never mind that she has been excommunicated by the Catholic Church thrice.

    sounds like she is a has-been who you used to like.
    So to get in the news she decides to insult you and relies on obscenities. But hey, she got your money and that’s what is important to her: money
