Do you think Madonna is despondent over Kylie Minogue's INCREDIBLE success with "Disco"?
Let's face it, Madonna has done everything to piss on her legacy as Queen of Pop. I say this as a fan of Madonna's since 1983. The last few years have been painful.
I've always thought of Kylie as the Princess of Pop (although I guess one could argue Britney takes that title).
But, Kylie is now deserving of the title of Queen of Pop. She cares about her fans. She seems to enjoy herself. Her music is still fun and it's uniting people during a time like this. That's what the Queen of Pop SHOULD do.
Madame X, who?
Do you think Madge is going on a bender and yelling at the kids?

"INCREDIBLE success"? I've only ever heard of this album here.

Nope. Madge’s last album went number 1 in the US and 2 in the UK because Springsteen also released an album that week. Neither M or Kylie had a big hit single, they both get big first sales weeks based off of their legend status/core fanbase and then have a big drop-off.
Madonna already did the disco throwback album better 15 years ago anyways. (I love Disco but it’s no Confessions)

Kylie Minogue is somewhat similar to Little Mix and Girls Aloud. Nobody gives a fuck about any of them in the US yet their fans make it sound like they invented pop music.

Brits are very parochial and inward-looking.
They really can't grasp that not everyone thinks the same as they do.
What number of people in the US have even HEARD of Kylie Minogue?

Kylie's biggest US hit was THE LOCOMOTION...over 32 years ago.

Kyle had two (sorta) hits in the US. "Locomotion" in the 80s and some dance song in the early 2000s. We would consider her a "One Hit Wonder".
I find her songs weird and unpleasant. I watched a concert she did in Sydney and noticed that her songs lacked "a hook". Not sure if it was just that album or all her music. Americans just don't dig her for some reason.

Hmm, doesn't that make her a TWO hit wonder?

Probably. But nobody asked Madonna for some shitty Portuguese inspired hip-hop album or to work with Mirwais (who hasn’t had a hit in 20 years) again, so that was her fault.

Kylie has always fucked hotter guys, which is funny because she wasn't the one promoting a hyper-sexualized image.

I'm fans of both Kylie & Madonna but what makes me like Kylie more is that she doesn't take herself too seriously. She knows her music and style is camp and she goes with it. I saw her "Les Folies" and "Golden" tours at the O2 and they were fun, campy spectacles.
Madonna used to be like that in the first half of her career but then became an "artist" and her music and style became less fun.

Never heard any of those except Locomotion (a cover) and Can't Get You Out of My Head (which she didn't write). I hate both of them but at least Madonna pretends to be an artist.

I like both of them. Kylie still puts out upbeat, fun music like Cher. Madonna has been trying way too hard for far too long.

I think Madonna would be pretty upset. Kylie is shining on an album that she wrote or co-wrote, very melodic and interesting and fun songs that are also weird and make you want to listen again and again. It's great dance music. People are right that there is no filler.
I was tepid on Kylie because I thought "Golden" and "Kiss me once" were not really my thing, but this album is great.
For a legacy act, on Spotify usually the top songs are all old classic. When I was looking at Kylie's spotify, four out of the five songs are from the new record. For Madonna, when Madame X came out, all her top songs were Vogue, Material Girl, Like a Prayer, etc. Yes, they're bigger songs but as they were still being played more than her recent material shows that no one was interested in the harsh, amelodic Madame X

Don’t hold your breath. She only releases albums every 3-4 years these days. You’ll be lucky if she releases something in 2022, and by then she’ll be 64. Nobody has a comeback at that age.
She would be better off just not releasing new albums and just doing a greatest hits Vegas show.

Madonna and Dannii are allegedly pretty close friends for about 20 years now (and I think were probably romantically involved back in the day), but Madonna notoriously refuses to meet or interact with Kylie despite wearing a Kylie t-shirt like 15 years ago.

Except that technically 2020 is not part of a new decade (there was no year zero, do the math), so we’d need to wait until 2021 to see who has new decade hits.

This isn't strictly true - Madonna and Dannii have been friends for longer than 20 years, they met when they both auditioned for Showgirls, Dannii in the Nomi Malone role and Madonna as Crystal Connors.
Dannii was recommended to Simon Cowell as an X Factor judge by Madonna and Madonna and cowrote Dannii's biggest hit All I Wanna Do Is Make Love To You.
Madonna still holds a grudge against Kylie for recording The Locomotion and having a worldwide hit with it - Madonna had recorded it for the Like A Prayer album and had to scrap it.

Madonna and Dannii were on-again off-again lesbo lovers for like 20 years. I saw them at dinner in NYC together like 15 years ago and I swear to God Madge was finger banging her at the table while Dannii was giggling in this crazy Versace barely there gown. I have no idea why Madonna loathes Kylie so much when she's been shagging her sister all these years. Probably professionally threatened? I dunno.

R37 - oh and let me add that DL fave Carrie Ann Inaba was at the same dinner and seemed pissed at their foolishness and left after only an hour or 2.5 hours. She had a crazy good dancers body. I still remember it like it was yesterday when she was walking out in this really tight but long navy blue dress. I'm gay but Carrie Ann is a damn sexy woman. Or she was then.

The track listing on the second side of the album was meant to be Cherish - Dear Jessie - Oh Father - The Locomotion - Spanish Eyes - Act Of Contrition.
When Madonna heard about Kylie's version of The Locomotion being a huge hit she threw a chair through a glass screen in the recording studio. Steve Bray tried to calm her down and got her to do some deep breathing exercises. He kept saying to her "Keep it together" and as they did their relaxation techniques together a new song was created!.

That would be impossible R52 considering Kylie released the Locomotion single in 1987 and Madonna didn't record/release the Like a Prayer album until 2 years later in1989.
At least neither Madonna or Kylie were fat.
