Madonna? Who Gives A Shit? (Part 2)

I’m kind of on the fence about the following comment from Madonna. You can read the full text of the article as well.

“We as Americans are completely obsessed and wrapped up in a lot of the wrong values — looking good, having cash in the bank, being perceived as rich, famous and successful or just being famous,” Madonna told the television listings magazine.

“It’s the most superficial part of the American dream and who would know better than me? The only thing that’s going to bring you happiness is love and how you treat your fellow man and having compassion for one another.”

I agree with your statement, but it is coming from The Material Girl’s mouth. I mean, if love and how you treat other people is the most important thing, then why get your panties in a bunch over a few people stealing your album? Yeah, I understand, you have your celebrity image to uphold and protect your “artistic” integrity, but I still have to ask, what the fuck do you think you are doing? If having cash in the bank, of which you have plenty, is of little importance to you, then why not give your album away? Or better yet, call it quits?

  1. call me a cynic, but i always find it amusing that comments about having money or being famous not being all that important always come from those people who have more than their fare share of both. doesn’t this mean that most of her life’s (blonde) ambitions have been for naught? i agree. if it’s not important, give it to those who need it (guarantee well find out how important it really is to her then).

  2. There are so many angles to her hypocrisy that I simply wouldn’t know where to begin.

  3. your comments are spot on. her statements go along with the theory that those who have the least to give are the ones that give the most.

    plus, now that she’s living in england part of the time (love the sudden english accent, madge), she can get high and mighty about what is wrong with america. on the subject of england, she goes on and on about how much she loves it – i would love it if i lived where she does. her viewpoint of “fellow man” is so off kilter from all of her years of protected living.

  4. Yes, Everyone needs money to live and Yes Madonna has got alot.

    I myself was judgemental to her comments on American values. I thought , If she had her money taken away and had to drive my 1978 Oldsmobile with NO air to work every day in 113 degree arizona heat she’d sing to a different tune.

    BUT NO.

    She knows this and she’s only telling us from experience that we should strive for love and compassion=a better quality of life BEFORE we strive for mass quantities of money.


  5. It’s obvious she can say whatever,about this subject, however she wants. But she is also a hypocrite on her words, why can’t she share some of her change with the lower class?
