Who cares what a "pop artist" says? These people are incredibly jumped up. We may all be immigrants, doesn't mean Islam can coexist with Western Ideals

Has Madonna even read a book? Last time I checked she thought Obama was a black Muslim.

Kind words. Bit she's not a politician, academic or even a charismatic philanthropist.

I can confirm she is very well read.

Lots of people who read books don't actually have a wide range of knowledge.



That's not the purpose of reading books.

Not really. If you honestly can't deduct the sarcasm from my post then it's really not worth my time.

About time. I've been thinking since the attacks that we really need to hear more wisdom from pop stars right now.

Ah,you were being sarcastic. Good.Glad I asked.

It's not worth your time yet you did it anyway


Let's see now,I think on this forum I have seen several people point out that sarcasm is easily misunderstood in text.

But hey if you think I'm an idiot,no problem

Glad we ended this amicably. I don't usually enjoy talking to idiots, but I like you for some reason.

Nice sentiment but a bit self-indulgent. People go to pop concerts for escapism. We see/hear the news everyday and it's depressing, that's why we go out and do things we enjoy like going to pop concerts or clubs etc. Madonna is there to offer escapism - that's her industry, not offering speeches and minutes silence. Those people payed a lot of money for escapism, not for her to lecture them about how to change the world. A dedication of the song for the victims would have been sufficient without the pontificating.

What if that is part of the act. Say for example the counter culture in American rock music in the 60s was often anti-Vietnam war.

The notion that pop music should not say anything and just offer a 'product of escapism' is a political statement and it is one I find rather :sick: :puke: I don't want all music to be the equivalent of going into TESCO to buy a product. :-/

Personally, that's what Rock and Roll is for. Pop is cookie cutter music - which I don't mind, by the way. I buy into it when I want cookie cutter music. Rock and Roll speaks to generations. Whether that was The Beatles with Revolution, The Sex Pistols with God Save the Queen, Springsteen with Born in the USA or Oasis with Cigarettes and Alcohol. Rock and Roll is for political statements, Pop is for escapism. Madonna isn't Rock and Roll. We just don't have any Rock and Roll artists around at the moment - since Oasis the scene has been dead. No one has the balls to make real music and real statements anymore, they're all too busy with pre programmed drum tracks and feature artists.

Ye I got nothing against the cookie cutter as you call it. But that's all there seems to be in the mainstream. (I'm not cool enough to be in the underground/indie/whatever the hell you call it scene). It;s like we have been lobotomized into mindless consumer zombies incapable of thinking outsides the confines of narrowly prescribed consumerism. Or something. I feel like I am unaware and stuck inside the Matrix but can not identify why it is I feel so detached

Also Oasis suck :P
