Getting old sucks. Getting old also makes some of us (*cough* me *cough*) get a little crazy. My version of the crazy has been odd, inappropriate mood swings, anxiety, and general malaise. Madonna’s version appears to involve lots of nudity and provocative behavior. And it’s unsettling.
The above picture was posted (with the banner) to Madonna’s Instagram with the comment, “What I wanted to wear to Met Ball but Anna said Not this year! So I’m gonna work on music instead? #artforfreedom.” Is she serious? Did she really want to wander over to the Met Ball wearing a few strips of duct tape strategically placed? Yes, she has a great body, but…sigh. And if she was joking, it’s still not the best look.
Oh, Madge. I’m allowed to display my crazy here online and make a spectacle of myself. That’s the only thing people know of me. But you are fucking Madonna for fuck sake ! I need you to try to do this getting old thing a little more gracefully. Show the rest of us how it is done!
Oh fuck it. Maybe it can’t be done. Maybe we all need to let our crazy hang full-out. Maybe the crazy-assed attention seeking is just part of the journey. Carry on, Madge. Express yourself!
