It's the 20th anniversary of EROTICA, and that for me was exactly when I realized she was just ridiculous and a famewhore. I've liked some of the things she's done since then (particularly "Ray of Light," one of her all-time best songs), but I've just not respected her generally for twenty years.
Exactly when did you get over Madonna?

Loved her from the beginning, followed her through the years, and still love her today. No other artist has a repertoire like hers. She continually changes her musical style, collaborating with different artists and producers to give her fans something new every time.
If you got "over her", you are stating that you lost interest in her music, or were turned off by the way she was acting at that time.
I always felt like she was a good singer who put out catchy pop and dance music. She was always fighting the system - promoting women's rights, gay rights, abortion rights, sexual oppression, violence, ageism, etc. Because of this, a lot of folks just couldn't relate or lost interest.
Just my two cents. And I'd say judging from the sell-out tour that will break her own record, many others would agree.

Defending Eminem is what made me hate her guts. I had bought most of her cds and albums up to that point, and I haven't bought a single one since. Her best dance-pop stuff was fun despite her vocal limitations, but I was also a fan because I thought she respected her gay audience and was in our corner. I always knew she was a poser who couldn't really sing, so when she betrayed gays with her gushing Emimen endorsement, all that was left was an annoyingly overpraised marginal talent who had exploited the gay audience.

American Life is a criminally underrated album. I started to tune out when she collaborated with Justin Timberlake and Timbaland. There were some great songs on that album (Miles Away, Spanish Lesson, Voices, Dance Tonight) but she was incredibly lazy during that era. She thought the Justin feature would ensure big sales, but the album flopped hard.

Well, as a kid I was always a fan. I was born in the 80s and grew up in the 90s. I was turned off a bit with her American Life album but then I liked her next album Confessions on a A Dance Floor or whatever it's called. After that album is when I started going online and reading more about her (mid 2000s). I learned all kinds of bad things about her, such as her copycat/thievery ways, her stank attitude and how she's just a gimmick queen/contrived controversy starter to make up for her lack of talent. So for the last 6 years or so, I've been permanently turned off and can be classified as a "hater" if you will.

With the release of 'Music'. After that, I very nearly lost track of her recording career other than a small handful of songs I briefly heard on the radio. Prior to that, I was pretty engaged in her music, I liked it a lot. I knew what she was up to though, because she always tries to get herself attention. The whole British duchess thing was a complete turn-off, it made my skin crawl. I came back to her when she released 'Hard Candy' in 2008, I thought it was a good album. I was disappointed with MDNA though.

I've liked everything she's done. I give her credit for not always doing the same thing over and over (I'm looking at you, Janet). She hasn't always produced the best stuff, but she's changed it up.

Britney is then loaning this technology to Gwen Stefani (Madonna's cousin) who will then scan Aisha's brain to steal all of Aisha's creative work so Gwen can release two new albums.

She lost her connection to the public after the adoptions and has gotten even worse since. The British accent may have gone but was replaced with some unfortunate drastic surgeries and toddler boyfriends.
It all changed after Sex. Then in came the kaballah and she went from bitchy but fun cunt to preachy hypocritical cunt. She's now nearly 60 and a heritage act and needs to accept that.

She can't sing, dance or act, and is a mediocre songwriter at best - which makes her success all the more outrageous.

Her last good album was Bedtime Stories. Great adult contemporary album with an R&B feel. Her voice also sounded decent on it.

Madonna is an act. It's a pop act. Music is secondary since she's not really a singer. Hers is an act from music videos early days. She will end up in Vegas .

The "Music" album from 2000 is when I got over her. That album was such a piece of robotic shit with stupid lyrics and when I realized how talentless she truly was. Every song on that album had her vocals put through a vocoder and Autotuned to death, and she's done that with her vocals ever since.
Oh, and that was also when she showed how fake she was when she married that homophobe Guy Ritchie and ignored her gay fans for years until her career was in the shitter and then she wanted to come crawling back pandering to them.

She became a joke with "Body of Evidence". She was clearly trying to be Sharon Stone, and that was sad.

Body of Evidence is an interesting film to watch to study actors. I just saw it recently and I was struck with how genuinely bad Madonna is yet somehow Julianne Moore with the same script and director and everything manages to be really good. (or as good as anyone can be under the circumstances.)

When she got up on her high horse after marrying Guy Ritchie.
Proclaimed, in her fake British accent, that she was moving to the UK because it was unsafe to raise her children here.
Fast forward a couple of months...someone breaks into her house in the middle of the night, while they're all sleeping, burgles the place, takes her car keys & steals her car.
If that's not a karmic kick in the cunt, I don't know what is.

She takes credit for other artists' work. And it's so blatant. I thought maybe Ray of Light was original, but even that was stolen.
The writer of the song, Curtiss Maldoon, sued her and won. She's been sued so many times.
|by Anonymous||reply 132||07/20/2014|
L I E S @ r132. Maldoon was credited as a writer in the album's booklet. There was no lawsuit.
From the December 1998 issue of SPIN:
"Muldoon's niece Christine Leach later updated it [Sepheryn], and sold the rights to Madonna and William Orbit after Muldoon died."

She is ridiculous now because she lives in a bubble. But one thing I can relate too is the question of are you supposed give up the music you grew up with after a cetain age? I started listening and dancing to house and all types of dance music when I was 17 (1987) and I still love it but now that I 'm getting older (43] I somehow am supposed to not like it anymore because it's "young" music. Society says you shouldn't care about new music after a certain age. I'm not even going to get into how you are supposed to dress.

She needs to move to different avenues. She's middle aged, but trying to stay revelant by thinking she's hip and stylish. But then she turns off most go her fans, who are middle-aged themselves.

I was never a huge Madonna fan. That's probably because I started watching MTV when Madonna was in her Music/English Duchess era and I didn't really like the music nor the stuff I read about her in the tabloids. All the albums she released after that were even worse. But listening to some of her older songs (Live to Tell, Frozen, Like a Prayer/Virgin, Vogue, Sanctuary...) makes me understand why she was so big back in the day - she was actually making some really good pop music and even though she was always pretentious/annoying/attention whoring, her music at least made up for it. But the moment she stoped making quality music she became a joke. But even though some of her older stuff was very good it's obvious that she would never become that big without all the crazy antics. Unfortunately she just didn't know when to stop with all the gimmicks (just like Lady Caca) and her attempts at staying relevant are getting more and more pathetic.

The concert tour following "Confessions On A Dance Floor". She was late by 2 hours, she was having dinner in Detroit's Greektown. Did not mind her being late a few years earlier in Manhattan... But Detroit? I think her dad was in the Detroit audience show, so she subsituted the 14 minute masterbating scene with a 14 minute nap on stage. She tripped on a jump rope and told us she would make it up to is later. The. Confessions tour had her land in a space ship in the intro... The show a few years later was the pitts... A shallow hommage to Kieth Harring, a Vegas limo etc. She is smart though, the country almost went under with the housing crisis, what I paid 40 for in Detroit cost 300 a few years earlier.. Why should she have put much effort or money into a show that was not going to make her rich. She got the money again with later tours. All artists have only so many tricks in their bag and usually a limited amount of years when God let's the joy flow out, that is early to mid-Madonna. Somewhere she went off track.

I stopped caring during the break after Bedtime Stories. I was starting to get into grunge/alternative/indie, and by the time her next thing came out, I had become 100% Rock and roll and would've been mortified to maintain my fandom.
I was 10 when I became a fan because of "Like a Prayer" (the video controversy caught my interest, and then I worked backwards) and fifteen when I started to get better/weirder taste in music.
Nothing to do with the quality of her output, which I guess has always been slight. Just me growing up.
It's funny how briefly I was a Madonna fan. It felt like a lifetime at the time, like all things do when you're a kid. But I've been a fan of so many other musicians and songwriters and bands way, way longer than I was a fan of Madonna.

I always thought she had a ridiculous side starting with "Like a Virgin," but I always thought she was cool until she released "Erotica," which i thought was awful and pretentious, with the "Sex" book, which I thought was ridiculously unsexy. That's when I decided I was tired of her as a performer and thought she was just a humorless tool. I still liked her music through "Ray of Light," though--that was her last song I liked.

Two parts: A. When her arms got so worked out she began to look like an ape (the video where she is driving the Rolls in an evening gown.) Her body fat was so low she looked aged even though she must have been in early- to mid- thirties.
When she married Guy Ritchie. It was the first time I remember openly pitying her for having to be in the spotlight still - looking ridiculous for her age - on such an occasion. Specifically I remember plaid in a limo?
