The funny thing is that most people here don't realize Madonna is actually my #1 female fave. Ask every person that has run a females countdown thread in here and they'll tell you that I've always Madonna as my #1 and Britney always #2. :)

So yep, I'm not just a Britney fan. I'm a fan of many artists and Rock music and Madonna is my #1 female and hell yeah can give criticism whatever the hell I want. :wink:

Although you're becoming one of my favorite posters here, I have to tell that there are a few shows missing from that list.
Especially the one in Maracanã stadium in Rio with over 115k people in attendance.

Edit : sorry I didn't see the dates :wink:

Thanks :D

Istanbul barely missed the list i guess. They could've easily added a second date and that would've been a sold out show too.

i just came across this from The Rebel Heart Tour
Macau Studio City Event Center 7,446 / 7,446 $8,265,771

That makes the average price paid per ticket to be about $1110. That's just insane !!!!!!!
Are there any other shows with the same numbers?

Then you need to come in here more often... just try not to piss off the regulars :lol:

I’m a huge Britney fan too. She is very obviously a huge Madonna fan herself, but what I like about that is she is inspired by Madonna in the right way... unlike others.

Warner uploaded Human Nature!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XPL_qGqSJxA

It's almost 10 years since most artists out there got their whole videographies uploaded on vevo, and Madonna is only getting few uploads this year, once again on channel that is irrelevant to her. Her legacy online is treated like a joke :roll:

Come on Madonna... give us something new :lol:

Next month it’s 2 years since she released her first 6 songs from Rebel Heart. I was reading up on the album the other day and the turn around of how those 6 came to be on iTunes - I never realised she finished off the production herself and then mastered them herself... all within 48 hours of getting the go ahead from iTunes.

(Good job the airbrushing was finished on the album cover) :lol:

I always found it odd she released Ghostown in the initial 6 songs, considering it hadn’t leaked. I’m always fairly annoyed she ended up releasing 3 singles from the first 6 songs put on iTunes... I know it was all last minute, but in hindsight she should have saved a Ghostown and BIM until the album dropped.

I have a strange relationship with Rebel Heart. I only sort of like some of the songs, some I sort of think are quite subpar and others I think are some of the strongest tracks she’s ever done. But please don’t ask me which category LFL falls into - I like it much more when I’m listening to it than I do when I’m rating it :lol:

The ‘problem’ I have with LFL is that despite the structure of the song (which is very Madonna) I don’t think it’s lead single material. I find very little of Madonna in the song actually. The other thing is that Madonna lead singles tend to introduce the album sound - and the only song that sounds like LFL is LFL. It doesn’t represent the album at all for me.

My favourite song - from the very first listen - was always Devil Pray. When I bought the songs from iTunes and listened, I loved it so much on first listen I went back and listened to it again instantly - screw other new Madonna songs, I needed to hear this again. I love the dark sound, it’s such a brilliant lyric and Madonna singing about religion - its everything my Madonna does, and I hadn’t heard it in quite a while. The other song that stood out instantly as my Madonna was Bitch I’m Madonna. I know it gets a bad rap, but I love it.

The song I can’t stand is HeartbreakCity. I doesn’t go anywhere and really brings the mood down imo. I’m not the biggest fan of the album version of Rebel Heart. I find it very hard to accept that version when I know the original version would have been a huge hit for her.
