It all went down when she left Warner and signed that deal with Live nation.
I can't name one good thing that she did in the last 10 years. She even managed to ruin SuperBowl with terrible guests and disgusting new song.
Weather we liked HC era or not she was still one of the biggest artists out there, 10 years ago she was basically riding high and now she managed to ruin everything that she worked on up until that point. Her image and artistry is ruined to the point of no return, no one sees her today as an artist. She's nothing but a joke, and she doesn't even realize that, she's blaming ageism for that.
Look at Mariah for example, she realized where she was, fired whole team, got her new team, got new high profile gigs, she brought class to her style, diva antics are fading etc. She's rebuilding her image.
What's Madonna doing? Spamming IG with MDNA skin.
I understand, as sad as it may sound I don't even know if she did something "amazing" in the last 10 years, probably the SuperBowl show for me, but thats it.
However I don't think she reached Mariah's low levels either, or at least she hasn't reached such levels yet. Mariah literally became a joke doing reality TV and let her fiasco get her on stage in the many disastrous performances she pulled in the last years. Madonna is lazy, repetitive, tiring and non-creative these days but she kept it professional every time she stepped on a stage always putting on good shows by not bringing her lazyness to the stage at least.
I feel like Madonna and her manager don't know how to market her career these days (and I don't mean the charts) but her public persona / image. She needs Celine Dion's public image's team and Cher's plastic surgeon's number because her face is also starting to give me Priscilla Presley teas.
Mariah def reached lower point, but she realized that, and she started cleaning mess that she made. Last few months have been the best months for Mariah probably since mid 00s, everything is working for her now, from great looks to her team hyping her up and praising her in press, giving her good word of mouth. Madonna never does that, she never uses her accomplishments in her advance, instead of reminding people why is she the biggest she reminds them that she is desperate hasbeen with her antics.
Madonna is only sinking lower and lower and i don't see her recovering, she only has die hard stans now, you know, those loudest ones who would call her burp the best song in years!!!!!!!!!1!!!!!
Everything is mess, from her online persona, to press, her catalog being forgotten and not pushed at all on Spotify and youtube, her image, from once upon a time fashion queen to cheap ugly looks.
Oh god i just googled that face and it's actually scary how much Madonna looks like her, i am seriously afraid of her next era, she not only gained a lot of fat since RHT ended but her face got even worse. She really has terrible genes and she's aging very bad.
