Back when we all were too young to drive, had only been drunk a few times, and had never even come close to having sex (except maybe with ourselves), Madonna seemed kinda cool, subversive, hip, and radical. Hell, I was excited when she first performed “Like a Virgin” at the MTV VMA’s way back when, and I probably could not have coherently explained why.

My, how things have changed.

Madonna has become something that bores me. Actually, pity might be a better word to describe how she makes me feel. It is interesting, if predictable, when an up and coming singer or actress pushes sexual boundaries when establishing herself as a star. (The attempt can fail spectacularly, but it is usually a pretty safe bet.)

Madonna, however, has been around for over twenty years. Granted, her last movie could not have been more of a bomb, and her last album continues to suck Kelly Clarkson’s dust (at least in terms of sales). Still, watching this supposed pop icon (who also happens to be well into her fifth decade) resort to kissing young girls in an attempt to kick-start her stalled career is depressing, sad, and, really, a little boring.

Could this be another reason they hate us? And whose career were they trying to kick-start? Isn’t Brittney pretty much last year, especially after revealing that she’s not so innocent. Make sure you follow the link to ‘Swept Away,’ the bad reviews rock. “Festers in just such a dungpile that you’d swear you were watching monkeys flinging their feces at you” may be the best.

Regardless, I’m of the opinion that the internet is ringing the death knell of this kind of exhibitionism. Google “hot girl-on-girl action” and you get 32,600 hits in half a second. Madonna and Britney or Christina? Who cares?

You are both such cynics. Who are you to say that Madonna, Britney and Xina didn’t create this performance as a way to poke fun at male sexual fantasies? (Did you know about the porn site that sells a video of a Britney and Xina look-alike couple?) It is a performance piece that only these three could do and have it ring true. Or maybe they were just giving back to their male fans.

Besides, you are both too young to not appreciate Britney giving tongue to another girl (even if it is Madonna). Mind you I would rather have just Britney and Xina (with maybe Avril) but I was aroused.

I think you mean Xtina. Xina, I believe, was a warrior princess (or maybe a princess warrior… I never could get that straight)

It is probably not my place to tell people when they are misspelling their own name (or mispronouncing in the case of Melissa Montes), but I have to question how Christmas is abbreviated X-mas but Christina is abbreviated Xtina. There is probably an allusion to intellect due here but I will refrain.

Wouldn’t it be easier to spell it “Christina”?
