”She is never going to be what some of her fans want”
The great Liz Smith talks Madonna again in another of her great column entries at wowowow.com.
“Sorry to oppress you about our friend Madonna but she seems to me to be one of rare ones making any news these days. (Falling off horses, trying to adopt impoverished children; it’s still front-page fodder.)”
“So I just had to ask a member of her inner circle – ” Liz continues – “What was up with Madonna’s wacky outfit at the Metropolitan Museum Costume Gala last week? (Were those antlers on her head, or antennae to contact aliens?) Especially since she attended with her friend, young Jesus Luz, who looked sensational and was wearing a traditional black-tie tuxedo. The answer came: “Liz, she is never going to be what some of her fans want – a woman in classic glamour couture, all the time. She is on the edge, fashionwise, and every other way. Look, she was having fun that night. She wasn’t taking herself or her clothes seriously. Given her workload and a personality that never lets her rest, we’re always happy when she just has fun!”
Well we may not be “her fans” in a traditional way by saying this, but we could not agree more with this. Madonna has always been, and will ever be, above and beyond anything you expect her to be.
