Sick of Madonna
May 22, 2008 § Leave a comment
I reluctantly purchased Madonna’s eleventh studio album, HARD CANDY, about three weeks ago. I was reluctant to get it at first because I was like…I don’t know how I feel about Madonna pumpin’ out that hip-hop.
In general, I think it’s a good album. However, after three weeks I am already sick of it. I think it’s because I’ve been listening to so much “hipster” music that I can’t do a processed beat. Give me some M.I.A. irony, or a piece of Arcade Fire apocalyptic thunder. Live instruments, please!
Usually when I buy an album – I sometimes get a couple a week – I play it on repeat for months at a time. Eventually, of course, I get sick of that shit, and then I’m all…UM, NEXT!
Vampire Weekend’s self-titled debut, for instance, I got the day it came out way back in January. I got Radiohead’s newest wonder the day it came out, too. I’ve played them both about 1,000 times each since then, prolly putting a dent in my ipod. And you know what? I’m not sick of them yet. It took me 3 weeks to get over Hard Candy; 5 months and I’m still not over Radiohead In Rainbows or Vampire Weekend.
Does that mean that Madonna is OVER?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
Of course, The Gays will continue to flock to Madonna and contribute to her billion dollar empire. They will buy every last ticket to her concert and it will obviously sell out within miliseconds.
