Is the term 'Madonna scandal' played out?
AOL Music has put together a gallery of Madonna’s most controversial moments, along with a reader poll to determine whether said greatest hits were ultimately shocking, boring, or entertaining. As of this moment, readers (52 percent of ’em, to be specific) rate Madge ticking off Planned Parenthood with the ”keeping my baby” hook on ”Papa Don’t Preach” as the most yawn-inducing, while her Truth or Dare documentary ranks as the most crowd-pleasing. (Good taste, people!)
Still, here’s what I want to know: How come the article makes no mention of the latest (and most baffling) Madonna-related hullabaloo — girlfriend’s inability to score any kind of serious airplay for ”Get Together,” the spacey-fabulous third single off Confessions on a Dancefloor? In my opinion, what Madonna really needs to reivigorate her airplay fortunes is a big-budget video that returns her to the storytelling vibe she favored on ”Take a Bow,” ”Bad Girl,” and ”Music.”
How ’bout this for a concept? Madonna as a frustrated Nebraska housewife who begins a passionate extramarital affair with the foxy extraterrestrial (Josh Holloway) she meets during a kinky alien-abduction experience. Am I on to something here, or have you got a better idea? Holla back!
