Material Girl My Ass, She's a Whore

The old dog can't be bothered to try new tricks.

This week I heard some radio news stories about Madonna's new tour. As expected, the ever-so-clever news writers waste no time in refering to Madonna as The Material Girl. Is it me, or can we dispense with that old nickname? She's 47. The Brit's call her Madge. She's been riden hard (and often) and put away wet... if you know what I mean. All three of those things run contrary to the nickname Material Girl.

There is nothing girlish about Madonna anymore, in fact there rarely was anything girlish about Madonna even in the early days of her career. She's mostly looked like a whore. She's had some good pop songs, but mostly that's the work of great producers and the music industry marketing extremely well. We've seen a lot of success with that kind of help. (That said, I'm sure a number of her songs will stay popular for quite a few years.)

Not too long ago Madonna did the title song for the 20th Bond movie (which was crap, both the song and the movie... mostly the movie.). Shirley Bassey she ain't. She agreed to record the song if she could be featured in the film. Remember the scene? Flashy sword fight with little purpose, but Madonna shows up in the beginning of the scene... looking like a worn out leather handbag. (I wonder why.)

Sorry, Material Whore... you're simply not relevant anymore. Plus, you look like a cow. The last time you looked even remotely sexy was when you were shot in black and white film. (Of course, you still looked like a whore.)
