Madonna at 60

"“Being a single parent of six children, I continue to be creative and be an artist and be politically active, to have a voice, to do all the things that I do. So, I mean, there isn’t anybody in my position.”

Isn't she special?

There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution.
~ John Adams, Letter to Jonathan Jackson (October 2, 1780).

She hasn't put out a song with a compelling hook since the 90's. (And all she had were good hooks).

One need look no further than that article to get what a narcissist is all about. It's hard to fathom that somebody could think that they are that fucking special.

And Cher too, she's still performing. She must have missed the memo about ageism.

This is just Madonna trying to be controversial. She's always seemed to live by the "there is no such thing as bad publicity" thing, and it's worked out pretty well for her. It got someone on ST to start a thread about her.

When your image is about sex, youth & shock value it shouldn't be a surprise to you Madge that at 60 people aren't buying your schtick anymore. May I suggest writing children's books?

Exactly, very few people think of 60 year old's as sex symbols and even fewer people want to see them parading around on stage in lingerie. Plus, if she's so concerned about ageism why did she have some young guy who's less than half her age join her on stage at the VMA's?

that's another thing. She was famous once for reinvention (of her looks at least). But it's been the same old same old with her for the past twenty years. And she gripes like it's the world's fault.

It doesn't count if Lindsey Buckingham isn't with them. I love Stevie Nicks, but WTF, you can't go and fire one of the greatest guitar player in history

Babs is 77, and is playing Hyde Park this summer.

I'll concede that Madonna has a gripe: her act doesn't go so well for a 60 year old. If she could sing like Barbara, then she would still be raking in the money when she performs and wouldn't be complaining.

I vote for ageism, at least for some of those.

Springsteen is still solid. Plant had to go bluegrass to stay "relevant." The rest should retire.

I didn’t say they were still any good but they’re still selling out shows (well, jagger is out of commission)...

Madonna was never good, she was just a whore. Nobody likes 60 year old whores...

...shit, I guess she has a point then...

I saw Joan Jett open for the Who a couple years ago. She killed it. It really felt like she wanted the audience to get their money's worth.
No gimmicky BS, just her rocking.

From my reading of the internets, her last tour was 2009. Maybe she has done smaller shows since then.

Ummm, no, actually she never could.

I have a Pat Benatar album my brother gave me around 1982. It's been played once; certainly no more. You want it? :-)

Plant did a single album with Alison Krauss in 2007. His subsequent releases and tours have been vastly different. Pinning his relevance to one album is a misguided.

I've seen him twice with the his Sensational Shapeshifters band. The first time was about 5 years ago and the repertoire and arrangements were impressive.

Never lost it and still got it.

Yeah, saying Plant went bluegrass to stay relevant pretty much ignores his entire lifespan as an artist. At what point in his career was he not drawing from delta blues and all its offshoots?

I saw him play with Krauss in Asheville, NC some ten years ago. They were phenomenal. Seeing T Bone Burnett playing in the band was a special treat.
