Starts crying for no reason during LIKE A VIRGIN and can barely finish the song. Very odd.
I've ragged on her before but I feel bad for her after seeing this. And don't tell me she's acting. As if.
I do hope she's okay. She's not had the best year.
Cheer up, Madge.
Perhaps she caught a glimpse of the many empty sections facing her.
She recalled it has been a life time since she was a Virgin.
She was emptying her ballast tanks to ease her pain from moving on stage. All the big tanker ships do the same after leaving port empty.
Being old and hitless is never a pretty sight.
This is heartbreaking to watch, I'm actually crying as I'm typing this!
This reminds me of the beginning of the book "Gypsy and Me" in which the middle-aged Gypsy Rose Lee walks out on her last stripping job after feeling ashamed of herself onstage for the first time in her career.
I couldn't watch the rest of the video, because I started crying like a Mary.
Oh she's going down a strange road now
Is her voice really like that in concert?
Are we sure she wasn't just leaking Botox?
I get nostalgic for the 80s & my lost youth, too. Just usually at home by myself late at night, with a glass of bourbon.
[quote]Janet's cry during "Again" in Barcelona from 1995 was much more realistic and gut-wrenching.
She did that every single time she performed it, and a ton of other staged emotional shit. She's the same as Madge.
Fake crying for publicity and no one care, that's why she's crying.
Totally staged. Every dramatic pause. The perfectly choreographed support from the backup dancer. She doesn't cry real tears. They're probably the tears of Malawain children she picked up on a shopping spree. Her real tears look like ash and smell like sulphur.
Are the tats on her (No Fear) permanent? If so, she's just trash with $$$cash..... they really look bad on an older gal.
OMG, the video of Madge was so sad. What actually happened??
Weird that if she doesn't want people to notice how old she is, she uses a cane and acts as if she's fallen and can't get up.

I have a couple of her concert videos on DVD. And, Janet didn't cry while performing "Again" but would pause for a long time before hitting the last lyrics of the song. This is the first time I've seen her cry while performing this song, and it doesn't look fake.
r33, it's a fake tattoo.
And btw, I don't understand why you guys are writing mean comments. I'm actually worried for Madonna. We have lost too many great singers lately.
Madonna isn't a great singer.
Oh please r38. How stupid are you? You really think that narcissistic old bag would cry honest tears on stage?
LOL @ r35!
I guess she's sad coz this time she didn't make it through the wilderness.
Nobody said the truth like r40. And if the tears were real, good. She deserves to feel some pain. Maybe she realizes how foolish she looks.
I read this thread when I woke up. Never had a better laugh so early in the day.
She was, in her clumsy and overwrought way, Making A Statement.
Poor Marge, I wish I could send her hydrangeas to make her feel better
Bruce Springsteen, Madonna
Way before Nirvana
There was U2 and Blondie
And music still on MTV
Her two kids in high school
They tell her that she’s uncool
Cause she's still preoccupied
With 19, 19, 1985
She should record better music, then she wouldn't have to cry about the state of her career.
Her singing is horrendous.
She looks like a drunk Marlene Dietrich.
Those are sweat tears from a hot flash.
You should all be ashamed, I was crying along with Madge. She needs our support!
The R38 & R39 combo have me cracking up.
Looks staged to me. Perfect TIMING for those crocodile tears inserted into the song seamlessly. And that stupid version of the Like a Virgin is funny. Hell, what's next, "Into the Groove" as a ballad?
[quote]I have a couple of her concert videos on DVD. And, Janet didn't cry while performing "Again" but would pause for a long time before hitting the last lyrics of the song. This is the first time I've seen her cry while performing this song, and it doesn't look fake.
Right. Janet was feeling some shit in that performance @ R16. Those were REAL tears.
Her back freaks me out--not the billboard messaging, just her back.

When was Marlene Dietrich NOT drunk?
I remember when Gaga cried at 90% of her shows LAST YEAR. Anyone else notice Hagdonna's big black veil outfit + the machine gun, Gaga did that on her current tour (which started before MDNA) oh and let's not forget Hagdonna's shade while singing BTW lifting up her skirt implying Gaga was a man and that lovely backdrop. Hagdonna's time is done, talk about 2000 & late, the only she is even relevant these days is when she is attacking Gaga.
r60, aka one of Haha's Little Ghouls, please fuck off. You can't call anyone else a hag while promoting Lady Haha. And if Gaga was indeed crying at 90% of her shows last year, it was probably because she lost her dealer's number.
When your precious little ex-queen can make headlines without involving Gaga you can call me back xo
Don't be so cruel to Madonna

I'm betting something happened this summer with Lourdes while Mommy was on tour.
Lourdes is doing the nasty.
What true professional, having a stroke on stage in front of all those people but working right through it! The show must go on!
That was actually one of Madge's jumpier numbers. The rest were all ballads.
Plus, I think it was the only song she sang live. You know, to prove to the audience that her microphone worked and that the rest of the show wasn't lip-synced.
Madonna cries at that very same spot in every performance, but not because she grieves her long-lost virginity. It's actually because that's when the house lights come up and she sees just how old her audience is.
I guess she's crying because she has to suffer through her crappy live vocals. If one performance artist should be required to lip synch on stage it should be Madonna. I have all her albums and even I can't stand her real singing voice.
It was either embalming fluid or formaldehyde.
A bit irrelevant but what exactly happened between Madonna and Gwyneth and their relationship grew suddenly so cold? They were very close a time. They had a verbal fight?
Everyone of Madonna's friendships "suddenly goes cold"!
Think about it.
[quote]A bit irrelevant but what exactly happened between Madonna and Gwyneth and their relationship grew suddenly so cold? They were very close a time. They had a verbal fight?
In 2010 when the fallout rumors had already been going, Gwyneth said in a magazine, "I can ice people out and I can definitely harbour revenge. In fact, I'm having a situation right now with a friend where I'm feeling pretty angry." In the same interview when asked why Gwyneth's trainer quit training Madonna as well, Gwyn said, "It's good that she doesn't train Madonna any more. It was too much. She keeps people waiting - it takes up your whole day."
No doubt that pissed Vadge off, on top of the fact that Gwyneth became friends with Cameron Diaz, who dated A-Rod not long after Vadge did.
Vadge only likes people who will kiss her ass (which she said from her own mouth in Truth or Dare). That's why the majority of her "friends" are people who work for her.
Lol, ok R74.
Thanks for answering.
Bitches, please! The reason poor Madge is a mess is because 3/4 of the gay community has turned its collective back on her recently. She probably reads the shit you bitches post about her on DataLounge. She has feelings too, you know? She has given her heart, soul, blood, sweat and now her tears to us, and this is the repayment we give her? We owe her, bigtime, mother-fuckers! She needs us now more than ever before. I suggest that all gay men gather in the streets, right this minute, and join hands. It will be a sort of "Gay Hands Across America" to show our support. I know she will be touched. Remember, Madonna loves each and every one of you. Let's show her how much we love her. She needs us, bitches!
Madonna Queen for 30 Years
Madonna is more fascinating now than she was in her hey day.
It's like watching Hal break down in 2001. She, the perfect star machine, is shorting out. I wouldn't be surprised if she starts singing "Daisy, Daisy" in concert.
It's not only age. Her old tricks aren't working because the rules of media have changed. There is too much sharing of information via social media. She hasn't adjusted and she hasn't learned how to use it. She can no longer control her image the way she used to.
On the bright side for her, she's stinking rich. She should just go buy herself an amusement park like Dolly and live there.
Self indulgent crap! Badly performed. Trying to channel Marlene in Berlin?
She owes her audience a proper performance. Try some discipline missy.
God knows you are old enough and have been in the business for long enough.
Maybe others are right . . . . . . Too long?
