"Madonna doesn’t embrace new artists" - Lady Gaga

There’s a difference between embracing new artists and clinging to them for the sake of relevancy. And that’s clearly the case for 3/4 of those.

I miss the time when Madonna would be her own woman, with only very few collaborations. Britney, Christina, Missy Elliott… it was another level, their impact was bigger. Now she’s desperate to appeal to a young audience and ruins her legacy for it.

What Lady Gaga said is obviously wrong, but look: I really, really don’t like Gaga but the fact is that she matures throughout the years. Who does she collaborate with? Elton John, The Rolling Stones, members of Queen… She does everything to be taken seriously as an artist. Madonna? She’s regressing. Who hasn’t collaborated with Nicki yet? Miley is a cheap so-called controversial popstar who’s only famous for her disgusting tongue and the fact that she used to be Hannah Montana, there’s nothing special about her. Katy is insignificant, fun though, but still insignificant. Natalia Kills, on the other hand, is a talented still-to-be-known artist, the only one Madonna didn’t collaborate with for the sake of a pathetic publicity stunt.

I’m saying that as really big BIG fan of hers, but I don’t like what she’s turning into. Madonna embracing new artists should be about her finding new producers like she did with William Orbit, Mirwais, Stuart Price… not trying to be down with the kids.

i think this is the first time i’ve ever seen a madonna stan make a coherent argument

They forgot to mention it’s not just relevancy she’s seeking - once she gives any of these half-baked pop stars any of her attention they run to the media about it and call her “Queen”. She solidifies her self-given title this way and has moved herself from the media given “Queen of Pop” title to just “Queen”. Yeah right, bitch. I can name at least 100 female artists/performers outside of pop that blow her out the water.

Taylor and Eamonn being interviewed by A. J. Calloway for ExtraTV

Everybody read for another invasive interview where Taylor tries to laugh off this guy’s creepy questions.

Talk about the damn show, A.J.


Interesting how a “fading” artist:

  • Scored her third #1 album in a landscape dominated by pop music with a jazz album
  • Managed to score TWO #1 albums in less than one calendar year (ARTPOP and Cheek to Cheek)
  • And became the first female solo artist to earn three #1 albums this decade

Really interesting

Girls face so many challenges and people are constantly telling them they can’t do things, they can’t be funny, they can’t run the companies. My advice is just not to focus on anyone telling you that you can’t do anything or the politics of your situation. Just think about your art, or that thing you want to do.

Taylor’s middle name is ‘Jacks’.

I like it! It’s just probably a hipster way of shortening Jackson, kinda like “Jax”.
