Madonna is gristly, vampiric in new Dolce & Gabbana ads


Here are some new ads and behind-the-scenes photos of Madonna’s latest venture, a sunglasses line under the Dolce and Gabbana label. It’s called the “MGD” line. As CoverAwards points out, the ads pretty much look like every other photo shoot Madge has been doing for the past two years. Fishnets, gristle, younger dude, chicken cutlet cheeks, black, and some extra gristle on the side. Oh, and a dash of Jesus – Christ, not Luz. Madge dons another diamond-encrusted crucifix for the shoot. Here are more photos:




Eh. I never know if Madonna still thinks she’s shocking us? Or at this point, is her image just on “Greatest Hits – Repeat”. Pale skin, vampire red lips, platinum white-blonde hair, crucifix, black dress, rinse and repeat over and over. When I finally saw the video ad (below) it even drove the “been there, done that” vibe even further. There’s a weird chant of “Madonna” that seems to be coming from far away, as we see extreme close-ups of Madge’s parts. It just seems tired.

    It is tired. It was tired in 1989. I know- I was there!

    Oh Madge, we’re not supposed to get emptier as we get older.

    Plug that insatiable hole.

    Eat red meat with the fat on. Brown it, scoff it.

    Youth is for the young, and that’s a joke you only start getting in your late thirties but better late than never.

  5. Amy says:

    She is the least sexy person on Earth, next to her BFF Gwyneth.

  6. Lway says:

    She’s too old to be dressing and acting that way. My god – she’s pushing 60 isn;t she?

    Talk about Grab-a-granny – eeewwwww 🙄

  7. guesty says:

    love it…’specially the lipstick smudges.

  8. jennjo says:

    She looks like Lady Gaga…so does that mean she’s copying herself?

  9. Jimmy Dean says:

    Wow she found a whole new way to look at the ceiling while being kissed on the neck.

    Someone please buy Madonna some sleeves. PLEASE.

  11. cedar falls says:

    Surely the headline should just read, “Madonna is gristly, vampiric”?

  12. Victoria says:

    ha ha ha ha!!! You guys comments are hysterical!!! I agree with all of you! She needs to get OVER herself!

  13. a says:

    Lway: Grab a Granny! I love it!

    Same old, same old.

    I’m amazed how gristly she does look in those photos, considering how heavily photoshopped they probably are to begin with.

  15. texasmom says:

    It looks to me in the video that they only had about 6 seconds of usable images so they just whirred it around in a blender, chopping it up and remixing.

  16. snowball says:

    She’s created a caricature of herself over the years and now that’s all that’s bankable. Can you picture her aging into a pretty, classy woman?

    It’s hilarious to slap her face onto someone like Lauren Bacall or Catherine Deneuve’s body/style.

  17. Persistent Cat says:

    Come on, it’s a shoot for overpriced sunglasses that no one needs, not a call for help for Haiti.

    I don’t see the problem and I don’t find the comments “hysterical.” They’re the same tired comments that appear in all Madonna posts.

    I doubt she chose the look/setting/costumes, etc. We’re seeing grainy shots but I bet the finished results will look fabulous in a glossy magazine.

  18. Emma says:

    Ewww! Someone is molesting my grandmother!!!! OH MY GOD, CALL THE POLICE!!!

    Oh wait, is that Madonna?

    My bad.

    False alarm.

    This is an artful and sexy photoshoot.

    I just got confused.

    Carry on.

    Good one, Emma. Seriously, we need a term that’s a lot less fierce and a lot more gristly than cougar for this one.


  21. jover says:

    Why can’t they use actual models for these shoots – they would probably be cheaper, need less photoshopping, and would like better than a velociraptor (sic) in burlesque – oops, I mean Madonna.

  23. Catherine says:

    I admire the fact that she takes such excellent care of herself but she’s at an age where these types of photoshoots are best left to the 25 year olds. I’m sick of seeing her making out with young guys, sticking her hands down her pants in concerts and screaming mother f**ker to the crowd during each song. Just give it up, Madonna. No one is saying she needs to become a bore, but this is just getting stupid at her age.

  24. moodswinger says:

    “dino-whore”; my kid couldn’t say dinosaur properly so we’d all crack up when she said dino-whore. now i know she meant it for madge.

  25. Luana says:

    Screw all these misogynistic and ageist comments. They just reek of jealousy and envy. She’s not going to stop so get over it. Madonna looks fantastic and she’s always done whatever she wanted regardless of whether it fit the mold or not, so why should she stop doing what she pleases and stop being herself now?

  26. cruiz2 says:

    So sick of her finding “popular” genres & opportunities to be sexy. Be real for once. Madonna burn-out!

  27. hiski says:

    looks more like an ad campaign for cosmetic dentistry

  28. Kali says:

    These photos don’t make me interested in Dolce & Gabbana. Madonna looks artificial in these ads (I know, stating the obvious).

  29. My2Cents says:

    Really guys? I hope to hell that I look that HOT when I am her age.
    God people write crap on this site!

  30. bizzy says:

    the weird thing (*a* weird thing?) about this, imo, is that this ad shot with, say, helen mirren, would be seriously hot and transgressive. it’s the fact that madge is made out of salvaged and reanimated bits of 23-year-olds that makes it so yawn-worthy. like, at first glance it looks like nine million other ads. at second glance, you’re kinda ‘hmm, i guess all the plastic surgery in the world can’t fix crepey knuckles’.
