Madonna's Full 'Rock Center' Interview

Here's Ye Olde Vampyre's interview with Harry Smith on Rock Center that aired last night. Odd that she waited till now to do any type of promo for MDNA — now that it's flizz-opped out of the Top 10 on the Top 200 in its third week — and that she chose this outlet to do so.

Anyway, there's nothing earth-shattering here. She chides Lourdes for smoking, says "it's hard to be #1" and talks about feeling tired of the game at this point.

    I always bristle when Madonna goes on the promotional path, and this interview nails why. There's a righteousness about her that is unappealing to me. You know what would have won me over? If she had just said "you know what, Harry? You're right...maybe I shouldn't smoke in videos so I have a foot to stand on with my daughter when she does the same thing."

    "She ... talks about feeling tired of the game at this point."

    Yeah, no kidding. It shows on her face!

    Yeah, yeah, I know, the interview was taped at midnight or 1 am. But then if she was a professional, she would/should not have allowed herself (1) to give that impression, no matter what time the interview, or (2) to be interviewed at such an hour, no matter how busy she is preparing for her tour.

    I'm with John -- her holier-than-thou attitude is so off-putting. She can't sing for shit anymore and has to depend on auto-tune to make an album.

    She's blessed with good genes that allow her to maintain that smoking hot bod so she can dance like her younger days. And that's where her talents end.

    I adored her right up until she put out the BS "American Life" album. Even "Confessions..." was subpar. What a pity. [/end rant]

    Even I'm not watching this.

    Well I did watch the interview. I didn't get righteous from it in the least, though perhaps a bit tired. She is and always has been very plain spoken. Being from the midwest I know that's a trait I appreciate and share with her. I also think her confidence can read as arrogant or righteous but really disagree that she showed any of that here. She has and always will have her haters, that's one of the prices of success and she's been around a long time. She's had her ups and downs, but the music speaks for her and frankly I like the new album more than I expected to. Hopefully she'll pull a couple of more good singles from it (there's a few to choose from...I'm a Sinner would be particularly appropriate) and tour the album back to the upper reaches of the charts. If not then perhaps we'll see less of her in the coming years and frankly that would be a pity. No one does it better and they've had 30 years to try. Likely no one ever will.
