Please, I am trusting my longtime-((some quarter of a century) felow TCM-ITES on below views on what she used to like to be called THE QUEEN OF POP among other nicknames, Madge is another, matter of fact she left England tired of that last name.  (MADONNA LOUISE VERONICA CICCFCONE) (Born August 16th, 1958 in Bay city, Michigan-(Ironically ELVIS wet on same date but shen she was jus age 19 in 1977) Grandparents from PACHEMO, ITALY.  MARRIED TWUCE 1985-89 & 2010-2008)

 

BORN: MADONNA LOUISE VERONICA CICCONE   HTT WAS 5'4, now 53 WAS ALWATS A MUSCLED UP 114lbs, having trouble thesedays at 139. ATHLETES ARE LIKE THATAS YOU ALL KNOW. & KNOW MANY MAY TAKE OFFENSE< BUT OLD FACT THAT ITALIAN LADIES FIGHT THE LBS MORE THENTHE REST, SHE ALWAYS EVEN ADMITS IT. MOTHER (MADONNA) DIED IN 1963 at only age 30. DAD ANTHONY CICCONE-(l931-) & CAN YOU BELIERVE SHE HAS 7 SIBLINGS, 2  BLOOD CHILDREN & 4 ADAOPTED TRYING TO KEEP BUSY I RECKON' HER WORKOUT SCHEDULE-(recall no fun?)  YOGA, WEGHTS, RUNNING, BYCYCLE & IT WAS *SEAN PENN _(l985-89) THAT GOT HER INTO THE WGTS.   (P.S. COULD SHARE A LOT MORE, BUT SOME IS PRIVATE JAZZ)

 

DOES CURRENTLY RESIDE NEAR FOX NEWS TV & IN SPAIN-(all can tell)

 

Now, most nitwits in the masses have ABS(LUTELY no idea as ton just how superlative this girl is in concert/on stage! Vids don't do her justice by any means  EPIC 2 & 1/2 hour concerts!!!

 

Yes, I am well aware it s fun to make fun oh her-(LOOONG STORY!) & you folks simply cannot tell me anything more personal, professional, the works about her then I already know, trust me  (books, mags, tapes,-(NOTE: Dig this record, I musta studied her superb & mt. summit 1990 concert "Blonde Ambition tour Concert"/"Truth or Dare" (l99l) so many times I blew the dvd, (over 150 times sports fans! Hope to get another, only about $6 on amazon thesedays. files, online-(which is a lotta bs much of the time as you know)

 

THIS IS NOT MEANT TO BE SOME CHILDISH YOUNG BOYS FAIRY TALE EITHER, HAD NUMEROUS GIRLFRIENDS-(mostlty dancers, exotic dancers & maybe that's where it started? LOUISE WAS THE POSTER CHILD FR ALL OF THEM< I;m SERIOUS, ESPECALLY ONCE VIGUE WENT UNTI THE STRATOSPHERE IN 1990!-(I;m only 6yrs her younger by the way) BUT, & TRUST YOU FOLKS, I DONT GET EMBARRASSED, BUT THIS COUPLE CONFESSIONS SOMEWHAT CAN DO) THE TRICLOK   1st OF ALL SHE'S MADE ME NERVOUS SINCE THE MID TO EARLY 1980's FRIGHTENING IS MORE LIKE IT, SOMETHING ABOUT THE WOMAN DOES TO THEM & MOST YOUNG '80's GIR:S & STILL TODAY_(SHE SET AN ATTANDANCE RECORD N ARGENTINA OF OVER 85,000!)

 

WRAP IT UP HER FAVORITE SONG PERFORMING ON STAGE "LIKE A PRAYER"_(1990 IN FRANCE BLONDE AMBITION TOUR)-(any naysayers, check that epic out!!!)

SIONG: "LIVE TO TELL" From powerhouse 1986 film "AT CLOSE RANGE" (l986) WITH *PENN & *WALKEN-(superb!)

PATIENT & A PLACE IN THE SUN    BOOKS  KUBALA & ZOHAR ANTHER IDOL_(Dietrich, Marilyn & of course *SEAN!) & I MUST SEEM IKE A MABIAC< LOUISE'S TOP FOODS  RCE CRISPIES, BURRIOTS & SALAD, A VEGETARIAN< BUT LETTERMAN-(had 8 encounters with Dave, she must like him) GOT HER AFTER ALL THOSE YRS IN NYC ALONE FOR FIRST TIME TO TRY NYC PIZZA ONE

DRINKS  GUINNESS-(MY BOOZE!). CRYTAL WINE,-(lots) & MARTINI's & SHE PUTS ON HERS & DES SMOKE, NOT LIKE PENN-(see his forehead lately?) 3pks a day BUT SHE SNEAKS HER CIGS  SHE PREFERS TERMS "GRASS"& "PUBS"

 

& ON A DOWNER, WHEN 2qst GETTING TO NYC AROUND AGE 21/22 SHE WAS ATTACKED & RAOTED AT HER JUDDFGLDER ON HER NYF ROOF!  ANOTHER TIME SOME SCUM POINYED A '38 TO HER HEAD, LOUISE FINALLY STOPPED LOCKING THE FPPT SHE GOT SOSICK OF BEING BROKEN INTO< SHE JUST STOPPED LOCKING HER DOOR IN NYC AFTER AWHILE

 

NETWORTH $550m

JACKSON AGAIN, OK!!! & HER NEMISES CHER ONLY ONE ONCE TO DATE!

 

& MOST ARE IN AWE WHEN I TELL THEM SHE'S WORKED ON (27) MOTION PICTURES, TRUE, LOOK IT UP!)  HER FAV OF THEM ARE  "LIKE A PRAYER" ON STAGE PERFORMING THE MOST (l990l/91) HER MT SUMMIT!

WON A BEST ACTRESS IN A MUSUICAL OR COMEDY GOLDEN GLOBE FOR '96's EVITA, still no AMPAS nomination though? (TRIVIA: EVITA HOLDS RECORD I GUINNESS FOR MOST COSTUME CANGES WITH 134!  ANIOTHER RECIRD SHE's NOT VERY CRAZY ABOUT IS THE ANNUAL "GOLDEN RAZZIE WORST ACTRESS OF THE YEAR AWARD" (5 victories to date!)

 

THINK HER PHENOMENAL 2012 SP HALFTIME SHOW IS EITHER A #! or #2 LARGEST WATCHED IN HISTORY

 

NOW, NOT CRAZY ABOUT THE INFAMOUS 1992 SEX BOOK, TRYING FOR REBEL JAZZ & STILL TRYING TO GET BACK AT HER OLD MAN A BIT   Doesn't like to talk about it

 

IN & AROUND 2011 HER LEFT EYE WAS SHUTTING< ALMOST COMPLETELY ON STAGE AT TIMES, SO SHE NOT ONLY GOT IT FIXED-(BOTOX & A COUPLE OTHER UTEMS) BUT HAD OTHER WORK DONE IN 2011 AT AGE 53. "WHY IMPROVE UPN IMPECTION?"

The problem I have with Madonna is that, while she is quite successful in pop music and performances, she thought she could just slide over into acting without taking classes and working her way up from the bottom. And it shows, unfortunately.

I wish she had taken the time to be a believable actress but, she is probably too arrogant for that. And frankly, its embarrassing for her.

BODY OF EVIDENCE (1993), which is arguably her worst film, has an 8% score of approval on Fresh Tomatoes. The late great Roger Ebert included it on a list of most hated films of all time.

Well, Joe, SOMETHING had to work in that fiasco( and what I've always called "Desperately seeking substance!") 

But though I haven't seen every movie Madonna happened to be in, I can't comment much on that beyond it being an uneven filmography.  

Never too, cared for her "music", but my girls just HAD to see her in concert, and a brother in law somehow manged to "cop" us free tickets to her '85 Cobo Arena appearance.  And I have to point out....

That after openers THE BEASTIE BOYS, Madonna WAS a welcome relief.  :huh:  And too, gotta admit I enjoyed her live presentation of the song "Crazy For You".

HEY BUDDY, we have a big split of the 27 she's been involved in so-far  By far her worst was a flick that was never officially a theatrical release  From 1979 A CERTAIN SACRIFICE  It's staggeringly awful! even I must admit that  Shanghai surprise was also really a flat mess, at least Who's That Girl? was bad but never boring.  & of all people for some reason I;ve yet to be able to catch all of BODY OF EVIDENCE?  They released that on the heels of Basic Instinct (l992) which was a big hit at ($117m.) thinking it could hit the same target audience but on hit ($14m.) One of the problems & I like Willem (Elias) Dafoe is his being cast in that role? No, but in A Certain Sacrifice she still had her normal dark brown hair & 6yrs later when the producers of that mess-(she never even mentions it!) they saw her around time of Desperately Seeking Susan-(a nice little movie by the way, Rosanna Arquette however was furious because it was to propel her upward & Madonna was getting all the oppress) ) & asked each other "Is That The Same Girl?"  she likes to makeover about every month.  THE BEASTIE BOYS, where are they now, she's ben at it almost 37 years!!! Survived her contemporaries, never got into hard drugs, loves pot-(she always calls it grass), wine, Guinness-(in Ireland called black beer) my favorite as well! Martini's  BIG-TIME!   as for GGG Gerard, by no means pal she's not the first to glide into acting from music or another medium though, She made a fool in a press conference on just that back around '85 when DSS came out, it was Oates from Hall & 0ates & he had the... to insist someone in music cannot do both, WHAT? what about SINATRA, ELVIS, BING, Tony Bennett  Dino,  W. Houston, Cher,etc  She really burned him down to the ground folks!!! & not one of them took any acting classes either. Not that she's Streep or even Cher in the acting dept-(though was probably snubbed of an Oscar shot for Evita!? Winning the Golden Globe, but the AMPAS ignored her per. & where she has a problem with emotion on the silver-screen, in that bio/musical they sang entirely though it, so it was a perfect fit, she actually beat out Streep & Faye Dunaway for that role! & one must admit-(wonder how she feels about this, but never discusses it  TOUCHY) Lady Ga Ga is better an actress-(not entertainer as she calls herself a performance artist, playing virtually every instrument on the stage, plus a stunning choreographer!) then Ga Ga gets an acting nom first time out of the shoot!  Anyway, thanks for the input, especially TopBilled  She's been hoping to do a 28th project about 5yrs now, not starring then It's from a novel, personally I think she's putting it off this time. Does have a new album out now, unfortunately she'll never again be in her prime when she did VOGUE-(though she admits she was a jerk & an idiot during her earlier era with her arrogance)  Mellowed with age I reckon'   Like to hear more on tis from cigarjoe sometime?  Not bragging, but I must admit I don't think there is an individual that knows more of this extraordinary & of course controversial entertainer then myself, except of course herself.  I write long lists on a superb & arguably her finest club/page titled THE REVOLUTION -(easy to find for those interested) & it took me hours  grand gal from Aussie runs it & has tried contacting M since before the net vis regular mail, never as et got a response  for some reason I broke through to her about 4yrs ago_(though haven't heard back since late February& she was a wee bit mean & frustrated w/me, due to my head injury around election time & I can't repeat here the first words she blurted out to me concerning it!) there are a lotta' imposters pretending to be stars too, you can easily tell if they are fake though. Cannot divulge too much here, but she mostly loves-(she reads everything to begin with, surrounded by books & several monitors) & her fav dog Gypsy.  Twitter & Instagram, likes hearing about my mom because my mother was a NYC Rockett circa 1962, then owned her own dance studio.  She'll often say something to the effect in regard to mum "One Dancer to Another"   By the way, this being an old movies & the mt. summit of classic cinema her favs are TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD, E.PATIENT-(not old though) & A PLACE IN THE SUN. Dietrich & Monroe    THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME

By the way, speaking of a certain little blonde Italian female from Bay City,MICHIGAN. Her dad is now 88!  She bought him 3 wine vineyard in MICHIGAN-(has it's own site & he doesn't even mention who his daughter is on it)  Considering her mama (MADONNA CICCONE) died at only 30 in 1963 of Breast Cancer Another reason she's a health nut, plus Penn got her into it. (NOTE: You can probably find some funny shots of Sean jogging, lifting weights but always has a cigarette dangling from his mouth) Stunningly she has & siblings! oldest brother is a raging alcoholic & homeless in MICHIGAN area, always blaming his sister for how he is. Almost every photo of him (Anthony CICCONE, same name as his pop) he is beaten up & bloody.   again cannot give away too much, but awhile ago she purchased the fmr mansion-(18th century) of Alexander Dumas in Spain. & lives-(public knowledge this pt) in Manhattan & not far from tv's Fox News.  Anybody on her that judges someone from just their videos, you gotta check out the epic 2 & 1/2 hr concerts & know he also has his detractors, same goes with ELVIS, especially after his '68 comeback. He hated those 1960's silly MGM movies, but kept his word to Col tom Parker-(A TRUE SCUM BUCKET!)   THANX AGAIN

WHAT YEAR WAS THAT BY THE WAY?  JUST SAW 1985, SUCH A DFFERENT PERSON THEN.  Then you likely know "Crazy For You" was same yr as DSS & from a nice little film w.M. Modine called "Vision Quest."  Her big role-(though incredibally sexy there!) was just girl or singer in bar.   WHAT DID YOUR GIRLS THINK OF THE CONCERT && HER IN PARTICULAR??? & FREE!

Her FIRST BIG TRANSFORMATION IN OPUBLIC WAS IN 1987 IN A CONCERT CALLED "WHo'S THAT GIRL?"-(like the bad movie) BT I;VE NEVER SEEN HERSO HAPPY OR SINCE!

 

Her body was sculpted-(due to Penn) she didn't have 1 once of fat of her tiny self-(she was 5'4 & usually 114lbs, but with feet size '8) this cioncert was in Italy, she knows that language very well Speaks 5 languages

 

THANX   TELL YOUR GIRLS THEY MADE OUT LIKE BANDITS    AVG TICKET & NOT EVEN FRONT ROW AVERAGE $250.00

 

THOUGH NOW-(got it's sickening) things are changing for her though   A woman's worst nemises I would image  AGE

It was the first concert for both, one being 13 and the other 10 at the time.  AND of course they were overjoyed.  Probably would have been REGARDLESS of who it was.  ;)

BTW:  The tickets, if we paid for 'em, would have only been &25 a piece.

Interesting you should bring that one up TopBilled. That was the first movie to cross my mind when someone said "Madonna". I remember critics saying it would drive a stake through the heart of Madonna's acting career once and for all.

If she hadn't redeemed herself with EVITA, it probably would have!
