Madonna, What The Fuck?
Against all expectations Madonna has recorded a cracking new album. Obviously I'll never again feel the way I did when I first fell in love with her at my first sight of the 'Open Your Heart' video, but this new stuff is good. I just have one small criticism, the lyrics are extremely poor,
take this, for example
'I don't like cities/But I like New York/Other places make me feel like a dork/Los Angeles is for people who sleep/Paris and London Baby you can keep'
'If you don't like my attitude/Then you can F off'
Now the old Madonna, the Madonna I fell in love with would have said 'fuck', 'F' strikes entirely the wrong note. It's too genteel. My mother says 'F'. I used to report my brother for 'effing and jeffing' in the vain hope my parents would drown him and start liking me again. I had an excuse, I was nine, Madonna is far older than nine. Say 'fuck' woman, oh yes and less of the rhyming doggrell if you don't mind.
Lord knows she was never a poet, but really!
