Well my dear, I have been with you every step of the way, singing and dancing through Celebrate, Like a Virgin (oh did that one piss off the parents), Cherish, Ray of Light...you name it, I was there. 'Cause that's what it's about, right? Music making the people come together? I'm thinking you should be savvy enough to figure out where you lost me, but in case for some odd reason you aren't, I'm gonna clue you in.
It's not that the last couple of times I saw you, I had to plunk down over $100! It's not that even though you had no opening act, you were more than an hour and a half late to the show. I get it, you have to be a diva. I mean, you are Madonna, right? Here's the thing, the last couple of times you came around, you lectured me on religion, world economics, and politics. You have nailed yourself to crosses, and even marched around in Nazi garb while showing pics of President Bush. This really isn't what I had in mind when my best friend and I hustled to get Madonna tickets!
What I can't figure out is, who put it in your head that we, your public, care about your political views? I mean, a fat lot of good your support did for Gen. Wesley Clark, right? Now, I fear your naivety might be showing, and it doesn't look good on you. It has come to my attention that on your latest
On that same notion, even if Obama becomes President, and let's say best case scenario he closes the gap between the rich and the poor, and creates new jobs for Americans, and mends fences between the US and the Muslim world, and lowers Americas dependence on foreign oil (none of which he has done yet). Would that put him in the same league as Gandhi? I'm thinkin' no!
The problem here is that in your middle aged attempt to be relevant, all you have really done is give the Rush Limbaugh's of the world ammo against Mr. Obama. This is an election where the Obama camp is trying desperately to get the American public to view him not as a celebrity or a star, but as an every day man (did you not listen to Michelle Obama's speech?). Thanks for nothin', Madge!
I'm thinking you should take your political views and put them in the closet with your pointy bras and close the door. You're thinking too hard. All we really want is for you to dance and sing Borderline, thank you very much. When you get back to that, I'll be here...waiting. Perhaps you should leave the politicking to Bono...he's way better at it than you.
No hard feelings m'kay,
Oh, and in case your wondering why you should care about my measly little opinion...I am your base. Yeah, I am the one who bought all of your cd's, including the greatest hits. I am the one who buys your concert tickets (until now). I am the one who even goes to see your movies (and some of them are real stinkers). One of the first things you will learn should you ever actually go into politics is "always play to your base"...Just a little somethin' to think about:)
