On the eve of Madonna’s very first appearance in Vancouver, I sit here, wrapped up in a snuggly blanket, wondering how Madge is braving the wet and nippy West Coast weather without pants.
If there’s any ever-present, consistent force in the spectacular, often jaw-dropping 25-year career of the Queen of Pop, it’s the lack of pants.
For Madonna, laced under-things and nude fishnets trump all pants. I’d be genuinely shocked if there was a 3 to 1 ratio of leotards to pants in Madonna’s wardrobe. And hey, who can blame her, the woman could give Olympic gymnastic gold medalist, Nastia Liukin, a run for her money in Spandex’s “World’s Tightest Limbs Competition”.
If you’ve got it flaunt it. And that’s just what she’s done. For better or worse, Madonna has stayed in the harsh glow that is super stardom for over a quarter-century. And she’s done it without ever shaving her head, entering rehab, or attacking anyone with an umbrella. And that’s saying something since she’s lived in Soggy Ol’ Britain for 8 years.
I’ll skip the recent details of her personal life because as you know from my previous Perez Hilton bashing article, I’m not a fan of celebrity gossip. But in this case, I’ll allow one cheesy phrase and say that no ‘pants’ will ever get in the way of Madonna’s superstardom.
I am on pins-and-needles to see what kind of hip-thrusts and alternative disco/pilates moves Madonna pulls out at her sold out show at BC Place Stadium tomorrow night. To be sure, they will be both “Sticky & Sweet”!
I want to hear about what you think of the Queen of Pop
