Hello! Yes, it's been awhile since my last update. Sorry. Life gets busy. A lot has happened in the time I've been away. First up, Madonna!
Yes, Madonna has a brand new song out called "Give Me All Your Luvin'". She didn't spell it "Gimme" as that would be ABBA-esque. However, why oh why couldn't she have spelled out "Loving" … OK, she doesn't pronounce the g, but "Lovin'" would have been better. Oh well. It's not that bad. I'm not sold on the single cover either. I kinda like it. I kinda don't. It reminds me of Dr. Suess's Star-bellied Sneetches.
There have been a lot of negative reviews about the song, and even when I first heard it, I wasn't impressed. However, after listening to it a few times, I liked it. And seeing the video really made me like it even more. In fact, I might like the video more than the song. Watch the video here!
I'm not the biggest fan of either rapper. I kinda like Nicki Minaj, but not MIA, even though she is pretty and has nice hair in the video. However, I much prefer Nicki's rap to MIA's rap.
At the end of the day, this is a FUN pop song. And I get annoyed that people are making ageist comments about Madonna making "age appropriate" songs. I don't care about that. The song makes me tap my foot and smile. That's what a great pop song is all about.
And while we are talking about Madonna … the Super Bowl performance was incredible. Who cares if it was all lip-synched. It was an incredible performance! A pity about MIA flipping the bird. Otherwise, it was awesome!
Madonna's album MDNA is out March 26. Can't wait!
