Why do her voice/accent sound different AGAIN? and also she sounds old even though she's trying to be all cool mom.
Her son seems normal enough though.
Holy Shit! He is adorable and she fucking knows how cute he is.
Some reports say Madonna made Rocco get circumcised a few years ago when she became involved with Kabbalah. She made Guy Ritchie do so as well.
nooo.. r5 that can't be true.. no one would do that.. not even her..right?
[quote]Karen Berg, a spiritual adviser to Madonna, is reported to have said that Ritchie underwent the surgeon’s knife to please his then-wife, according to New York magazine.
[quote]The mother-of-two who co-founded the modern Kabbalah Centre in L.A. is reported to have said that Madonna: ‘keeps a kosher home, she observes Shabbat, she circumcised her son and had her [ex-] husband circumcised’
Kabbalah is such shit. No real Jew thinks anything of it. It's for phonies like Vadge.
I don't get it. Rocco gets to dance in the show, Lourdes helped with the costumes and David gets to DJ with the opening act. Where the fuck is Mercy??
He actually seems like a nice, cool kid. As much as I dislike Madonna, I like both her kids. I hope they are just as nice when they are adults.
He replaced his beloved Crocs with...FLIP-FLOPS!!!
Mercy is way too young to be involved and Madonna knows that. I think she's probably a great mom.
I doubt Rocco is that nice, being raised in a super-rich family with a control freak mom. He's Guy Richie's son though, so he'll probably be a hottie (another reason why he won't end up that nice.) Madonna has good taste in beefcake, I'll give her that. And it is interesting seeing her human side as an actual mother who loves her son.
How bizarre that Guy submitted to a circumcision. Maybe he's into dominatrixes and that was his attraction to her.
She seems like a good mother.
Cute! This kid reminds me of one of my nephews - just a regular 12 year old boy.
The British accent seems to be gone. She sounds like her old self again.
that was adorable! Great segment.
Someone didn't up her calcium levels during menopause. The change totally robs a woman's skeleton but we now know this so it can be prevented. Madonna didn't really research menopause when it hit her. She opted for denial. Her upper back and neck area betray her anti-aging campaign.
She'd be soooooooooo fucking hot if she'd just allow herself to age a little more gracefully rather than fighting it tooth and nail. Madonna with just a little extra fat around her ass and hips? HOT SEXY BROAD. Madonna won't surrender to ANYONE"S schedule but her own. Not even mother fucking nature's.
I find it interesting that she is almost terrified to do something on TV that she is not good at. But I guess I would be exactly the same about throwing a baseball.
It's refreshing that Madonna forces her kids to work ON her show instead of trying to pimp them out like Will Smith and his demon spawn as celebs. Reminds me of when I had to work for the family business during summers. Even when her son appears on the show, it's more like "Oh, here's my son, how great" instead of a sleazy "Here's my kid - go buy his single and see his latest movie" said with a shit-eating grin/smirk.
You queens don't know what kind of a mother she is. It's quite presumptuous to call her a "good mother" on the basis of an Ellen show appearance. By the way, the Ellen show sucks.
Her son seems normal. I'm impressed that she sends her daughter to a public New York City high school instead of some snooty private school.
Her obvious vulnerability during public appearances with her son is what makes me think she is a good mother.
r20 Her daughter is in s public school????
As much as I can't stand the old ho, I wouldn't blame her for sending her kids to private schools. First, because public schools suck. Second, because they are the kids of the most famous woman on earth who also has more money than god. I'd be scared out of my mind of kidnappers and other freaks who would try to hurt them because of my (her) fame, resentment, jealousy or whatever.
All public schools DO NOT suck. Please don't buy into the lies that they do. NYC public shcools have produce 8 Nobel Prize winning scientists (including the Chemistry winner this year).
Her daughter goes to LaGuardia H.S. which is the famous perfomring arts h.s. in NY. I am surprised that Madonna does it for safety reasons but it seems to have worked out.
Guess she isn't bright enough for Stuyvesant.
Ellen sure knows her way around the softball field!
I can't presume that Madonna is a good mother based on this clip, but she DID lose her mother at a young age, and she's talked about the void it left in her life, so I imagine that she would be the good mother to her kids that she wishes she had.
That clip is the first time I've found anything likeable about Madonna in a long time. (Not really a fan. Still not.)
Oh and she is not a hunchback, it was that stupid cage thing she's wearing. Weight bearing and flexibility exercise help your bones more than calcium. And we all know how diligent she is about that. In fact too much calcium is bad.
I bet she gets her hormones checked and blood panel work-ups every five seconds too, considering she gives herself B12 shots in the ass and slathers herself in some sort of skin cream at night.
[quote]Madonna won't surrender to ANYONE"S schedule but her own. Not even mother fucking nature's.
So much truth, R19.
[quote]Some reports say Madonna made Rocco get circumcised a few years ago when she became involved with Kabbalah.
Madonna started with Kabbalah in 1996. She gave birth to Rocco in 2000.
You're thinking of Guy Ritchie.
Young Madonna and Rocco side-by-side.
The Ciccone genes have kicked in!
Her daughter goes to LaGuardia which was made famous by the movie Fame. You have to audition to get in. She's not with the riff raff, believe me r23.
Why does Ellen make celebrities do embarrassing and stupid things? I would never go on her show. If she told me to take off my shirt, I would tell her to take off her shirt.
Oh, and I would have told Ellen that I want to dunk her.
It's très Jolie, Coco.
You're out of control, R35.
His fake brother's black and his half sister has a unibrow.
That appearance made me like her the most I have in years (and I am a fan). If you had told me that boy was from some suburb in Wisconsin, I'd believe you -- extremely normal/likeable and that can't be easy. No airs, no brat. Maybe it's the Guy side for balance.
That has to be the first time I have seen her smile and it looks genuine. It's a nice clip as far as celebrities on TV go.
He's going to grow up to look just like his uncle Christopher.
I'll bet Madonna performed Guy's circumcision herself.
I really like this, she seems almost human, which is new. And I say this as a former fan who came of age during Ray of Light and then quickly became disillusioned.
I loved hearing her laughter.
R35 to make them more relatable to normal folk.
How does Rocco feel about being circumcised?
That clip is easily the most I've liked Madonna in at least 12 years.
I have a feeling that kid keeps her on her heels.
"This is what twelve is like" was rather corny, yet also seemed genuine on Madonna's part. However, she was annoying with that hand movement she kept doing while Ellen was talking about the fundraiser -- she had to keep the focus on her even during that.
For his part, Rocco was absolutely adorable and likeable -- I had ASSumed (bad me) that he'd be more of a schmuck. His laugh when he was dunked seemed so genuine. And the braces also add to his "regular kid" presentation. Nice.
I agree Mo looked very likeable and Rocco seems like a good kid...
Well this is a new sentiment about Madonna that you usually don't see on the DL.
She was actually vulnerable and that was nice to see.
[quote]However, she was annoying with that hand movement she kept doing while Ellen was talking about the fundraiser -- she had to keep the focus on her even during that.
She is the world's most anxious person. Her control freakism is pathological, but I imagine it's the root of all her "evil."
[quote]"This is what twelve is like" was rather corny, yet also seemed genuine on Madonna's part
It sounds like a Mom. Very nice.
Ellen shouldn't have asked him what he did when his mom was flashing the audience. Was she looking for a cheap laugh?
I don't think I've ever seen a picture of Rocco where he wasn't smiling. I hope he keeps his natural effervescence as he gets older. He's always been a cutie.
It seems that Madge is getting nicer with age, according to the video. At least Rocco isn't a brat like that Jaden Smith.
r48, they were talking about breast cancer. That's how you check and Ellen started to talk about the breast cancer deal with the chips company.
[quote]NYC public shcools have produce 8 Nobel Prize winning scientists (including the Chemistry winner this year).
Thank you r26.
[quote]Was she looking for a cheap laugh?
It's a chat show. Why the faux-rage. MDNA pimped her son and quit the 'he was comfortable with it' line before you post it.
Yes, I thought Madonna & child seemed normal and likeable in that clip, too.
I don't think she is hunchbacked, either. It was the angle and what she is wearing. She seems quite normal by the end. And as stated upthread, I am sure she has had everthing tested. Exercise helps re bone strength as well and she does enough of that.
Oh, I just got that. I know I'm months late.
[quote]R48, they were talking about breast cancer. That's how you check and Ellen started to talk about the breast cancer deal with the chips company.
Although the dunking booth is for breast cancer, I hadn't made that connection. Coming into the clip when I did, I thought that the hand movement was all about Madonna's cone bra, as that item has become so associated with her. It still seemed as if she was drawing the attention from Ellen; however, your post puts her action in a new perspective for me.
You don't realize how skinny Madge is until she stands next to a woman of average/normal weight.
I think Rocco is cute, but I don't see him becoming handsome. Both of his parents have round faces. Those do not look that great on grown men (think Leo DiCaprio).
For some reason I was expecting a British accent from him.
I want that t-shirt--"So Much Sucks."
This kid is growing up in the shadow of a legend. The fact that he's anything but an asshole speakes volumes about Madge's nanny.
"So Much Sole"
anyone watch? If so, how did Madonna come off?
Madonna looked so physically weak. I can't believe she couldn't even get the ball to the target only 20' away. I thought she was some sort of workout fitness woman.
She seemed to have good interaction with her son though.
what did they talk about for an hour? lol
I like Madonna and likely always will. She's a far more normal than her publicity might indicate.
Rocco is not cute at all. I don't even watch this show but happened to catch this part because I turned on that channel to watch the news which comes on after Ellen.
W&W for R63!
The Ellen interview was good. She seemed normal and not so on guard and cunty the way she usually is in interviews.
[quote]She's a far more normal than her publicity might indicate.
Getting nude in front of your kids, dating 20 year olds at 54, and tonguing them and grabbing their junk, again, in front of your children, is not normal. Being part of a cult is definitely not normal either! Does she honestly believe her kids are not seeing her tits flopping out when they're not on stage for the bit? Give me a break. She's showing her puss now with a sheer thong.
Eat shit Grandma [R72]
r72 Madonna said when she flashes Rocco is backstage.
Madge needs to work on her faux UK tongue, she's lost it
R71 well her current album and singles BOMBED so she's trying extra hard to be more likable than ever. It's all in vain though. Bye bye Vadgegranny. You may still chart on the dance charts but that's all. No more air play for your ass.
R77 her album is among the years top 10 biggest sellers worlwide, how's that a bomb? And her current tour is this years highest grossing and most attended, earning her hundred of millions more this year alone! As for airplay, radio DOES NOT play songs by older artists no matter what, it's not her fault that they discriminate! Name me another over 50 artist that's been as successfull as Madonna this year? They would kill to have her success. Even Barbara Striesand probably wishes her duets album could sell 1.6 million like Madonnas so called bomb album.
Lionel Richie's album totally sold more in the US than Madonna's did.
and LOL we got a Vadgebot in da house.
Madonna sold more worldwide,which is what counts. MDNA could have sold a lot more if she did promotion for it, but Madonna was rehearsing for her tour and aside from the Superbowl couldn't fit it in her schedule, Richie was EVWRYWHERE promoting his album. But who could blame Madonna, why promote when your tour will make $300 million at the box office and your the first female to sell out Yankee Stadium not once but twice! Madonna's contract also enables her to get 90% of her tours PROFITS which itself maybe as much as $200 million. Madonna did score a minor top 10 hit with first single Give Me all Your Love, which became the first time an artist in their 50's had a top 10 this millennium, that's how rare it is. That song like the album have both beeb certified gold in the US. Springsteen, McCartney, and Striesand have all released new albums and singles this year none of which qent gold or had the success of Madonna's releases, yet people call Madonna's album a flop, it makes no sense and shows you how some people like to hate on her.
He's going to be a cockhound, just like his mother.
Sooner rather than later, I'd guess. Give it a year or two.
So how does he feel about being circumcised?
[r80] = Janet Troll
calm down R80 lmao Maybe you feel Vadge's current album and singles are doing great, but most people would disagree.
That's not all Madonna did on Ellen...watch this video in which she gives quick quips about some pop singers Ellen lists...
from same show, Ellen describing what Madonna did while Ellen was coming out in the "Yep, I'm gay" time in 1997.
PLUS, if you've ever wondered, pictures of Fran Drescher's gay husband
And Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka Halloween photos. Not the family ones.
she looks quite old in that clip except for the outfit. Hair and makeup don't make her look any younger, and even her voice is sounding old. Vadge just can't escape the aging process, no matter how hard she tries.
I'm surprised she pulled her hair back for the interview. You can tell she had a facelift when you look at the right side of her face from her ear to near her eye.
Rocco really seems like your typical All-American kid. I was not too surprised that he didn't have a British dialect. Several years ago someone documented Madonna's life behind the scenes (don't remember for what) and it showed her children playing/interacting and they sounded American. Makes me think Rocco and his family are probably not that involved in their lives.
Not sure about Rocco, but Lourdes speaks perfect french.
Looks like his MOM??
The kid is a mini-me of Guy Ritchie.
Nobody cared for either the album or the singles, r80.
Not because she's 54 -- but because her music has become boring and weak.
And you are very mistaken to think "promotion" could have saved that album. It was destined to underperfom, simply because the music on it is LAME.
I wish they would've stripped Rocco down to a speedo for that bit, he's hot for an adolescent. It would probably have launched him as a legitimate sex symbol for his age group.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
