M-Tribe column writer and Community member Cristian aka CristianLuvsMadge is back with a new piece for his “‘Cause I Got Something To Say About It…” column.
Well… almost. At 49 years old we find Madonna on the verge of releasing her new album “Hard Candy” with a cover picture that leaves little to the imagination. Madonna is in a seductive pose — legs spread open, mouth apart — wearing a body hugging, boxer-inspired outfit probably only a stripper half her age would wear. She becomes something of an oddity at her age. After all, this woman is in her menopausal era. She isn’t supposed to be sexual anymore. She should be concentrating on baking sales, PTA meetings, and her children’s school recitals at this point in her life.
But Madonna has never really been one to follow the pack much has she? In a comical way, Madonna has become like the Sally O’Malley character from Saturday Night Live. Sally O’Malley does aerobic-like exercises and wildly flails her body to and fro, much to the confusion of bystanders, while pronouncing “I’m 50! And I like to kick! Stretch! And kick!” The viewer can’t help but laugh at the absurdity of it all. 50 year-old women aren’t supposed to be as tough or physical as Sally. She looks incredibly out of place at times, but therein lies the underlining hidden question of the skit. Is it that women aren’t supposed to be like Sally, or is it that we don’t want them to be like Sally? My thoughts are it’s the latter, and something tells me Madonna is all too aware of this at this stage in her life.
