Madonna wore a tragic ensemble for her Times Square screening of ‘Madame X’

Madonna and boyfriend attend Madame X event in Times Square

When Madonna made a surprise appearance at the VMAs earlier this month, I think a lot of casual Madonna fans were sort of shocked by her appearance. Madonna mostly exists on social media these days, in carefully curated images which still show off the massive amount of plastic surgery she’s gotten in the past decade. But public appearances are increasingly rare, because Madonna can’t always control which unflattering photos are taken. Still, she came out to Times Square last night to support her Madame X concert-documentary film, which will air/stream on Paramount Plus next month.

As with Madonna’s appearance at the VMAs, I’m arguing with myself about what to say about Madonna lately. She’s 63 years old and she can do whatever she wants, plastic-surgery-wise or whatever. It’s not about her “right” to get chin implants, face lifts, butt implants, etc. It’s about the sh-tty quality of the work and the energy behind it for me. Like, I just think Madonna looks and seems sad. Like she’s holding on for dear life to this idea that THIS is what she needs to do to be relevant. And it’s not at all.

The outfit is hilariously bad too – it looks like she’s so desperate to dress like a kid, and then she dons the “F–k You” tiara and walks around like her back hurts and her hip is about to give out. Good lord.

    Holy fillers. I am almost her age-so I get the wanting to look and feel younger (and I can’t even imagine the internal pressure for someone who has always been so image conscious.) It makes me sad for her.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      yeah, I get wanting to look younger but this isn’t “upkeep”, this is alteration. and while yes, she can do whatever she wants to her body, she is venturing into Jocelyn Wilderstein (or whatever her name is) territory. it’s sad.

      • Still_Sarah says:

        She really has gone into Mae West territory in the last decade. I always felt she wouldn’t simply retire and go quietly. Too much ego involved. But if it makes her happy, then go for it.

      • Agreatreckoning says:

        Her face is beginning to look like a bowl of lumpy mashed potatoes and that’s sad.

      • s says:

        Mae West had a camp style, when young. as she aged, she generally toned it down. i’ve never seen photos of Mae looking so frail. it seems to me Madge only needs to work out and cut back on the makeup and she’ll stand straighter and look years younger.

      • LahdidahBaby says:

        Great post, WhatWHAT?, and I agree. It’s sad, really.

    • The Hench says:

      Paulina on the other post is only 7 years younger and yet is showing Madonna how it could be done. Again: good for your age, ladies, not a totally different decade. And the outfit is so blatantly try-hard that it has slid into emphatically uncool.

      Sad indeed.

      • Turtledove says:

        “And the outfit is so blatantly try-hard that it has slid into emphatically uncool.”

        This just kills me. She has access to whatever clothing she wants. Can you imagine what a bad ass she could have been if she was not trying to chase “1994″? She is still very fit, she has great features and bone struture. She could have aged so gracefully, still looked incredible and she could have been SO COOL. I am not even saying “don’t be sexy”, but ugh, just not this drunken birthday party dom crap.

      • SchillIT says:

        Paulina is NOT the same type as Madonna. How can we expect to have fierce independence in youth- then BE EXPECTED to age homogeneously?

        I was shocked by madam x at 1st- but I’m feelin in FOR HER. why do we give any pause?

    • minx says:

      Kaiser put it perfectly, there’s nothing more I can add. It’s just sad.

    • J says:

      I’m a little late here…and maybe this has already been said… but I don’t think this is about good or bad plastic surgery. It’s about her next reinvention/evolution/whatever. Each one stopped us in our tracks…for a time…they were meant to. None of them were subtle. We were supposed to look, then look some more. Loving it or hating it was never the point. Her determining the reaction was. She did it again…

  2. Jessie Quinton says:

    I feel the same — yes she can do what she wants with her body, she has the money and the right. But…this isn’t it. It makes me sad.

    • BayTampaBay says:

      Madonna really needs to take a meeting with Stevie, Cher and Dolly.

    • HeatherC says:

      She’s not getting her money’s worth with these procedures. They’re just not good.

      • Chaine says:

        Her facelifts have reached Faye Dunaway territory. It’s got to be painful. I saw other pics from this event where her 20-something boy toy was bent over with his tongue on her cheek and I wanted to scream “Don’t lick Grandma!”

    • Ravensdaughter says:

      The thing is, I’m sure that she would age gracefully if she allowed herself to because she is so disciplined with regards to her diet and exercise. But she won’t allow herself to age, and I wonder if her fans won’t allow it either.
      The outfit worthy of a rebellious twentysomething doesn’t help either.

  3. Silent Star says:

    I just keep trying to remind myself that telling her what’s appropriate for her to wear now, is not much different from telling her what was appropriate for her to wear when she was younger. Meanwhile, I’ll just call this an “interesting choice”.

    • MF1 says:

      To be fair: this is outfit is bad no matter what age you are!

    • Eurydice says:

      I would say “interesting choices” in the plural, because it looks like she’s put on everything she could find in the house, including her kitchen apron.

      I don’t think it’s a question of appropriateness – it’s just that any one of those items, even the tiara, even those ratty braids, would work if the other choices were well thought out. In her earlier years, Madonna would look like she threw on any old thing, but every chain and bead and bauble was carefully considered to create a specific effect. This is just a mess.

      • Mac says:

        This. Madonna spent decades carefully curating her look. It’s sad to see her chasing youth instead of being at the fashion forefront.

    • Monica says:

      I wouldn’t tell her what to wear at any age. But I have eyes and a brain and what I’m seeing is sad.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        Not only is it sad but she appears to be that Madge is constantly having “something” done. She has lost herself in the past 5+ years as well as going overboard with the plastic surgery. She needs to sit down and be honest with herself, but that hasn’t happened and it may never happen.

  4. Amy T says:

    I’m roughly the same age and it makes my heart hurt to look at her because all I see is fear and loneliness and the parts of me that are most afraid of getting older.

    (Note: “the parts of me that are mostly afraid of getting older” are well in hand. I’m just referencing them in the context of Madonna.)

    • Roo says:

      Amy, your response resonated with me. This is how I feel. I am sad for her and I understand the fear of getting older and being invisible to society simply because of age. I understand it, but do not necessarily empathize with it because my self-image and career were never based on my appearance. I can’t imagine what it’s doing to someone who apparently hasn’t moved beyond that type of affirmation.

      • Amy T says:

        1,000 percent, Roo.
        “my self-image and career were never based on my appearance” – THIS. And I didn’t know how lucky I was, but I do now.

        re: “I understand the fear of getting older and being invisible to society simply because of age.” – There’s an incredible song about this by Amy Rigby. – live
        Original recording –

      • Silvie says:

        I really had though that Madonna was the one female star who would age courageously. She was so in everyone’s faces about convention when she was young. Her attitude was so groundbreaking. It’s crazy to think now in 2021 how much her work normalized gay imagery in pop culture, normalized healthy female attitudes about sexuality. But it turns out her vanity got her in the end. So disappointing. The caricature she’s turned into undermines everything she accomplished in the eyes of Gen Z. People under the age of 30 will never truly understand what a megastar she was.

    • Linda says:

      You nailed it. She’s an icon and if anybody could justifiably walk around like the cock of the walk and just be comfortable in her iconography it’s freaking Madonna. She totally rewrote the book on women in pop music. She has the absolute right to do what she wants with her body and her image, but I don’t see the in-your-face, f-you confident provocateur. She strikes me as lacking the confidence and ballsiness that was part of what made her so successful.

      • Lucy2 says:

        I agree, I was such a huge fan of hers back in the day, it makes me sad for the Madonna we could’ve had now. I wish she had just embraced all of it, her icon status, her own style, her age, all of it. She really should be at the IDGAF stage, but she’s clearly not.

  5. Minnieder says:

    Super sad. I loved her in the 80’s

    • VoominVava says:

      I agree, it’s so sad. And disappointing. She was a trailblazer who I would have predicted would become an icon in every era. More like J Lo who shows that a healthy lifestyle helps keep you looking and feeling younger (not saying she hasn’t done anything extra, but she is very healthy and takes care of herself) . Madonna used to promote not drinking, no smoking, eating healthy, exercising … even though she was rebellious and always pushing the envelope. Also feminism. This isn’t feminism. It’s quite the opposite, in my humble opinion.

      I also think about her adopted daughters. What kind of message is she giving them? She’s exaggerated her breasts and butt so much it’s almost a caricature like the Kardashians… and so many say that the Kardashians are culturally appropriating by doing that. I think of the Kar/Jenner mixed race children too. It’s almost disrespectful to their cultural heritage. I don’t know. It’s problematic at the very least isn’t it?

    • SchillIt says:

      How can we love a 20 something who does this (“loved Madonna in the 80s)
      Yet “feel sad” when the exact person does this at age 60+? She looked gawdAful in some of her getups then…I’m not into the age fear. So what. I’m 60 & have sex. Geez ppl. Do we really care??

    • noerdlinger says:

      “I loved her in the 80s.” Why did I read that as “I love her in her 80s?” Telling.

  6. STRIPE says:

    I agree Kaiser. There’s a desperation coming from her that is heartbreaking. It’s a distinctly different energy from other divas who get plastic surgery like Cher and Dolly

    • olliesmom says:

      Exactly! Cher and Dolly do it for themselves and no one else. They aren’t trying hard and they know that they are still at the top of their game. They both have moved with time, but somehow at the same time have kept their classic images also.

    • VoominVava says:

      It is shocking isn’t it. I always thought Madonna was so confident, but this is showing insecurities beyond what I’d have ever guessed she’d have.

  7. iconoclast59 says:

    She. Looks. Ridiculous.

    I’m only 6 months younger than Madonna, and while I believe that you don’t have to put away the miniskirts just because you’ve reached a Certain Age, you do have to tread carefully, lest you come across as desperate and try-hard. Madonna’s definitely crossed that line; she looks pathetic and, ironically, out of touch — the exact opposite of what she’s going for.

    • olliesmom says:

      Yes! She could still wear the mini skirt and be elegant and still edgy. It’s all in how you style it.

      She needs a new stylist.

    • HeatherC says:

      Tina Turner wore some awesome minidresses while performing well into her fifties and beyond and looked fabulous! Madonna needs a stylist or assistant who will encourage her to edit her outfits, too much going on it looks like chaos.

      • smcollins says:

        Yes to Tina Turner! She’s the epitome of aging gracefully while maintaining an edge without looking ridiculous & try-hard. I used to think that’s how Madonna would do it but unfortunately it looks like I was wrong. I think the big fail comes from it all being at service level and not a “youthful” spirit shining from within (as corny as that sounds).

      • schmootc says:

        And that was years ago – there’s much better technology, procedures, etc. now so you can look better longer. Helen Mirren too. But yes, you have to pick and choose. Madonna’s lost the thread.

    • Bella says:

      I agree 1000%. I am older and I wear short skirts too, but I also ear skirts and dresses of all lengths. I saw a video of her dancing in 1993 and she was amazing. She really could have aged gracefully, as everyone has mentioned. She is now, the opposite– the desperation on her is not a good look.

  8. Amy Bee says:

    Could it be that Madonna is having trouble accepting that she’s getting older and that she’s no longer the centre of the pop universe? And you have to wonder what effect the early deaths of some of her contemporaries have had on her.

    • iconoclast59 says:

      I don’t think it’s the early deaths of her contemporaries so much as it is her ego, which is the size of Montana. She can’t bear the idea of fading into obscurity.

  9. Willow says:

    Never thought I would miss the Material Girl.

  10. Betsy says:

    If you told me this woman was 85 years old, I would believe you. She looks awful. If she just looked her age, I genuinely wouldn’t care. Hell at this point, I would applaud it. But this is all plastic surgery. It just does not look good.

    • olliesmom says:

      If you didn’t know her age you would have no idea if you looked at her face.

      I think that she would have aged really nicely because she always seemed pretty health conscious and she has the money for the best topical/surface treatments, skin care and make up that money can buy.

  11. olliesmom says:

    So sad. She’s not much older than I am and I always thought that she would age much more gracefully than this. She could be so elegant and still current.

  12. K says:

    This is depressing and unnecessary. Her face was Beautiful and she would have looked amazing if she had left herself alone.

  13. Lala11_7 says:

    35 years ago….I would have bet BIG $ that Madonna would have seized the narrative regarding aging…and did what so many older women in my life did…which emulate French women…they are very comfortable in their skin as they get older….that along with their confidence…life experience and impeccable fashion sense…make the women sexy AF❣ My 84 year old Mama and ALL her friends are sexier than Madonna and it makes me sad….she was on the right track when she released the album “Music”…I don’t know what happened after that….🥺

    • Monica says:

      She could have OWNED aging. Honestly, it breaks my heart that her self-esteem was so fragile. Oh, well, we’ll always have the ’80s and ’90s.

    • Shannon says:

      I know I’m in the minority here, but I never saw Madonna as some fearless trend-setter, and I’m the right age (early 50s) to have worshipped her. She just always seemed like a pathetic narcissist to me, choosing outrageousness solely for the attention it would get her not because she’s actually marching to the beat of her own drum. I thought she was being a pathetic show-off when she sang “like a virgin” at the mtv video awards back in her heyday, a desperate egotist when she made that book “sex,” a desperate baby Jane when she kissed Britney, and a lame edge-lord when she used all that Christian imagery in her videos solely to piss off the Vatican. She’ll do anything to get attention, and she mistakes that attention for admiration. She seems like just another aging narcissist to me, and they don’t tend to age well.

  14. Mel says:

    She could be 18 and that outfit would still be terrible. I don’t care if she has work done, what I don’t get is why, with all that money that the work is so bad and obvious?

  16. GrnieWnie says:

    Man when she was in her 40s in her leotard phase (that album with the song Hollywood)….she looked great. Just great. I love a woman who looks like she’s taking care of herself at any age, who has put some effort into it. I don’t want to judge her looks now, only say that a woman in her 40s, 50s, 60s working what she has can look amazing. No cosmetic surgery needed at all.

    • Susan says:

      Yes! And remember the Ray of Light phase, with the natural hair, makeup, kind of a yoga rebirth hippie phase? Her best looks ever IMO and it would have translated to this age. So sad she went back to the Material Girl phase.

      • Lucy2 says:

        Ray of light was a good era for her. I also liked her high fashion glam of Vogue, but as an 80s kid her original style will probably always be my favorite.

  17. locamg says:

    Yikes. I am 36 and hate that I have noticeable wrinkles…..but the way people reshape their faces is just not for me. Which is worse? Looking old or looking… You know? At this stage, I choose looking old. (I also am not famous and constantly photographed, so… do you.)

  18. FHMom says:

    I was at the dermatologist with my mom yesterday and had to look up the age of the doctor because my mom had been going there for years. Turns out she was 62, same as Madonna. She wore no makeup and could easily pass for 50, maybe younger. She looked amazing. I don’t know what her skin care regime is or if she had work done. She looked very low maintenance to me. I wish I could say the same about Madonna.

  19. jb says:

    i feel tremendous empathy for Madonna. She defined the NY downtown subculture, exploded that message into the mainstream then moved the needle for women’s autonomy and sexuality in pop music and pop culture. Her oeuvre and attitude were absorbed deeply into the cultural psyche, and yet 40 years into her career, she’s now a has-been, forgotten, tossed aside. We don’t owe everything to Madge, but women in pop culture wouldn’t be where they are without Madonna.

    Can you imagine being one of society’s great icons and polemics, then as you age, like the cruel fate of us women, deemed irrelevant and unf*ckable? She’s not the first to have this happen to her, nor the last, but we don’t really have a female pop power-player of Madonna’s scale and impact who’s remained public for this long. The kids, the Tik-Tok Gen barely know who she is, and yet owe so much of their liberated attitudes towards dressing, sexuality and bad-autotune to her. Madonna must be paralyzed by such sheer terror that she really has become irrelevant—when relevancy and dictating tastes was her whole life’s work.

    • Prairiegirl says:

      This is a very insightful comment.

    • Eurydice says:

      You’re very kind to show empathy and I agree about Madonna’s contributions, but I don’t think that women’s autonomy is tied to being “f*ckable” – that’s something Madonna might want to explore and would be entirely relevant to today’s conversations. And, I don’t think Madonna’s been cast aside just yet, either. Covid has prevented a lot of activity, but she released a new album, went on tour, produced a documentary and is now reissuing her older music. She’s going to be around for a long time

    • Silvie says:

      All of this. YES. I can’t help but look at Debi Mazar, who’s only six years younger than Madonna. Debi’s had some work done, too – fillers, injections – but she still looks like herself as a very beautiful woman who’s being mindful of how she’s aging. She also posted a lot of very raw, candid footage of herself while recovering from COVID, so she seems to have a much healthier grasp on vanity. Madonna has to realize that if she hadn’t gone down this path, her fans never wouldn’t have abandoned her. Cyndi Lauper is still adored. Lisa Lisa still looks great. Debbie Harry is f$#king 76 years old and still looks pretty badass.

  20. Deanne says:

    To be honest I’ve never been a Madonna fan, but get how much she meant to so many and seeing what she has become is really sad. This is the opposite of what I would have expected from her. The insane amount of bad plastic surgery. The clothing choices that scream insecurity. The F#ck You tiara that isn’t edgy or controversial, but looks desperate and pathetic. She looks almost feeble in these photos. Someone up thread said it well. Cher and Dolly have had surgery and don’t dress “ their age” , but they both look good and don’t come across as desperately clinging to youth and relevance. I can’t imagine what she’ll look like 10 years from now. I actually feel terrible for her.

  21. Lkay says:

    This entire outfit/styling is making her look even older. She’s look about 10 years older going to a costume party. I think her posture is also adding to that. I’m all for doing whatever you want appearance wise but this just doesn’t feel authentic.

  22. Queen Meghan's Hand says:

    Madonna walks around like her back hurts and her hip is about to give out because her back hurts and her hip is about to give out. Performing and touring is BRUTAL on the body and Madonna has done it for so long–maybe too long. Multiply that intense physical work with years of restrictive dieting and yeah, at 63 your back will hurt, your joints will be a bit worse for wear. Remember that injury she got that just wouldn’t heal?
    She’s like these tech bros who believe they can conquer aging with the right combination of fitness, dieting, and plastic surgery.

  23. LadySwampwitchGivsneaufux says:

    does anyone think that maybe she is on drugs? I just cannot understand this version of her.

    • psl says:

      I have heard she is addicted to painkillers, she had knee and hip replacement surgeries. It makes sense to me, she had been acting so bizarre for a couple of years now.

      She makes me sad.

    • Size Does Matter says:

      My first thought, she looks a bit addled. Like Granny got into the medicine cabinet again.

  24. anniefannie says:

    I can’t believe in what world Madonna looked in the mirror, snapped her finger, wheeled on her heal and thought “ yep, I look fabulous!”
    I mean is there no one in her life that has the ability to say to her “ Dial it down”
    I was a huge fan, and still am of her music but these pics are just overwhelmingly depressing.

    • Chaine says:

      I don’t think there is anyone who tells her no, other than maybe Rocco when he was going thru his teen rebellion. In other pix from the event, Rocco and David were both there with her (and looking absolutely amazing I might add–we should cover their fashion) and I wondered if that was to keep an eye on her, because otherwise I would think teenage boys would be embarrassed to go to an event with their mom dressed like a geriatric stripper and her boyfriend who’s just a few years older then them.

  25. Northernlala says:

    She was always so in control and on top of her image. Her personality seems to have changed so drastically it makes me wonder about pain meds (you can see a limp from her injured hip) God I wish she’d just stop trying to be the same person she was and grow into her age. I’ve loved her since the 80’s and now she just makes me sad for her and kinda pissed off at her for all the stupid plastic surgery- The old Madonna would be so pissed at this Madonna. Maybe she needs a good rehab? She needs something. It’s like she lost her mind in lockdown 💔

    • Margo says:

      Good point about meds!! Remember that Prince, who never drank or did recreational drugs, got hooked on pain meds due to years of stage performance-related injuries. I hope that if she does have pain med issues that she gets help.

  26. BW says:

    I’m getting a Mae West in Sextette vibe. On second thought, Mae West looked better.

  27. Ana Maria says:

    she almost looks like Bette Davis in Whatever happened to baby Jane (and I say that with sadness)

    • JanetDR says:

      Yes, exactly. I’m a year older than Madonna and was never a big fan, but admired her evolving fashion looks in the past. But not this.
      People just don’t seem to know when to say stop with plastic surgery.

      • Lucy2 says:

        I think it can be very addictive for many people. Plus if you get an unethical doctor who’s willing to do whatever, as long as the patient pays…

  28. Margo says:

    It’s such a shame to see someone so talented and vibrant becoming a cartoon character. Honestly, I am surprised. I thought Madge would be one to age gracefully, continue to make music, and stay relevant to the millions of fans who adore her. Sadly, she seems to have lost touch with reality or is following horrible advice (which I find hard to believe), but in any event, I really hope she emerges from this phase, dials back on the filler, and gets the credit she deserves for being a music icon and business tycoon.

  29. Restless Bitch Face says:

    I sat with those pictures for a minute, then it hit me. She is Eddy from Absolutely Fabulous. Trying so hard to appear fresh and contemporary that it’s all lost in translation. She will always be an icon, she doesn’t have to try, she just IS. I also think that since she’s lived longer than her mother did, there might be a glitch in her matrix about aging.

  30. Leskat says:

    She just can’t let youth go, can she? To be blunt, she looks awful and grotesque right now. She doesn’t look “good for her age”, she doesn’t look like she got “work to make herself better”. She looks like she got budget work in an alley by someone who catered to her every whim and wasn’t realistic or upfront with her on what is possible for a sixty year old woman.

    I rewatched “Truth or Dare” a month ago and I was blown away by how stunning she was then. Not classically beautiful but so intriguing and watchable and stunning to look at. Even in the early 2000s, she was aging so well. But she’s lost her way and no one told her no. It’s a shame.

  31. observer says:

    i 100% feel the same. kaiser nailed it.

    i know it’s kind of stupid to feel pity for celebrities, but i’m on a celebrity gossip website so: i actually do feel pity for her. no schadenfreude, if anything the opposite of that. her “energy” is desperate, and that’s just sad. kaiser worded it very well.

  32. Seraphina says:

    It saddens me to see the message she chose to send is TRUST NO BITCH. Really? How sad.

  33. Coco says:

    Who ever is doing Madonnas plastic surgery is using her a a cash grab at this point. She in the territory of Donatella Versace and Jocelyn Wildstein at this point.

    How did they make her look 20 years older than what she is and I believe they talked her into getting the butt to get more money out of her.

  34. Pocket Litter says:

    I feel for her. Aging isn’t easy for anybody.

  35. Tanya Nguyen says:

    Her butt implants have caused her many health issues. That’s why you see the fragility in her walking, her hips and her legs.

  36. atorontogal says:

    She’s got a whole Nora Desmond vibe going on now.

  37. TisMe says:

    Aw man. The fillers are not good and perhaps she’s had issues with them moving?
    It’s ok to age (it’s a freaking privilege!) and it’s ok to dress however you’d like…but wish she’d chosen something more flattering??

  38. Courtney says:

    This is just so sad but also maddening. Madonna has always tried to be subversive and a risk taker. You know what would have been subversive and risky? Aging like a normal woman in her sixties while trying to maintain her musical career. She probably would have looked fantastic had she not gotten all this terrible plastic surgery because she has always been so disciplined about diet and exercise. But her face would also look human.

  39. original_kellybean says:

    So many of these women get so much work done and they start looking like the puppet, “Madame”. All you youngsters can google it “Wayland Flowers and Madame”.

  40. elfie says:

    She is about one outfit away from being Baby Jane dancing randomly om the beach, surrounded by horrified gawkers.

  41. Andrea says:

    This is sad. Fillers/surgeries aside…she looks like she has dementia and was found wandering around. Dressing this way at her age makes her look unwell, not hip

  42. Valerie says:


  43. February-Pisces says:

    She looked great all throughout her 50s, but since she turned 60 she’s morphed into a plastic emo teenage sex doll. It’s sad because I do love Madonna. I do believe she can do whatever she wants to herself, but I feel like she’s missing the mark, she doesn’t just want to look younger (literally everyone wants that) she wants to still be a sex symbol too. If she’s in her early 60s but looked like her late 40s that’s a result, but she wants to look like she’s in her twenties, which makes her look worse. Also twenty somethings don’t dress like this either. Also I feel like her look is kardashian inspired ( fake ass, lips, now boobs) which just makes me feel sad, I mean she’s f*cking Madonna ffs.

      It’s a failure of imagination that sex symbols can only look like Playboy bunny Victoria’s Secret angel hookers. Health, humor, intelligence, an open and interested attitude can get you far, even as the years move on. Madonna blasted so many conventions – to bad she can’t blast this one.

    She looks like Hulk Hogan was her stylist

    She should have spent the money on therapy instead of surgery. I don’t like her music but used to think she had guts and no fucks to give. That was clearly just an act. I’d rather be old and ignored than pointed to and laughed at.

  48. remarks says:

    This makes her look older. Shes vey fit but kind of looks like she’s moving like an old person …at 80.

    The only way to age from stage awesomeness into the stratosphere, and keep the crown, is to mimic Tina Turner.

    You can tell that even Madonna fans don’t really like what she is doing to her legacy by how pressed they get when her contemporaries are getting lauded. Lots of bitchiness on social media!

  51. Jaded says:

    This is truly pathetic. There’s a great German word — fremdscham — which means feeling embarrassment for another person who doesn’t realize they’re embarrassing themselves. That’s what I feel.

    • TEALIEF says:

      It really is pathetic and pitiable. The procedures are aging her, not maintaining her and, certainly not making her “look younger”. Where are her real friends? She’s walking around in a stage costume from her Blonde Ambition tour. She has become a caricature of herself. I look at those pictures and all I see is Wayland Flowers’s puppet Madame.

  52. Cole says:

    The problem with Madonna isn’t her age or that she even wants to look hip. She’s been fiddling with her natural looks for decades and there was time I really thought she was intentionally morphing in to Kate Winslet. I mean she made drastic changes not a little here, a little there. From head to toe she was becoming another person appearance -wise.

    I’ve never been a fan. She was trash from the beginning of her career, imo. The only sadness I feel is for her children.

  53. Bread and Circuses says:

    Okay, I’m going to buck the trend and say…she looks great.

    Given she is 63 years old and wants to look in her 20s, she has come remarkably close to pulling off exactly that. Realistically, if that’s your goal, you couldn’t do much better than this. Her look is a success.

    Back away from the fillers, woman. You’re going to be a senior citizen soon! Jesus, the ego.

  55. Heat says:

    This screams BDD to me (body dismorphic disorder). It is really sad and she likely needs a lot of help.
