Madonna Kicks off her Sticky and Sweet Tour with a Bang
Madonna kicked off her "Sticky and Sweet" tour at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, Wales on August 23rd to critical acclaim. The Material 50 Year Old danced, skipped double dutch rope and is said to generally have kicked up a storm at the concert.
I am a Madonna fan but I know that the pop queen has perhaps as many detractors as she does admirers; there is something about the woman that rubs some people the wrong way. That's just as well. As far as I'm concerned, I get a kick out of the way Madonna manages to manipulate the general public with her antics on and off stage. Whether she's wearing pointy bras outside her clothes or getting crucified or making out with her female dancers or Britney Spears, the pop icon thrives on creating controversy. That's what she does best. Create controversy to remain in the public discourse. And people eat that stuff up and fall for it over and over and over again. LOL. In the YouTube videos below, Madonna performs "Vogue" and "Get Stupid"
"Get Stupid" is a quasi-political song of sorts which ends with an image of presidential candidate Barack Obama. The video shows lots of images of Madonna singing, of people, dead animals, Adolf Hitler and a whole lot of other shit. Furthermore, the video's quality is not that great but there are some really cool images.
