The Madonnathon continues. Last night on Letterman’s Late Show, Dave got Madge to mount a horse for the first time since her rib-cracking riding accident in August. He saddled up too, and they rode down 53rd Street together. (You can see a clip here.) Madonna described her feelings about riding again as ”a bit of excitement tainted with fear.” Remember when that used to be an apt description of how Letterman must have felt whenever the singer would visit, when a Madonna guest spot meant Madge baiting Dave with enough bleepable swear words for a David Mamet play? We’re all getting old.
Oh, and her effortlessly great new single ”Hung Up” is streaming now at her website. ”Time goes by… so slowly,” she sings over a ticking clock. Alas, no it doesn’t.
