Forget Madonna’s Grammy Outfit – It’s Her New Song Living For Love We Should Be Talking About

Forget Madonna’s Grammy Outfit – It’s Her New Song Living For Love We Should Be Talking About

Madonna proved she doesn’t get any less controversial by revealing her bum on the red carpet at last night’s Grammy Awards. But isn’t it about time she started letting the music speak for itself, asks Niki Browes

If ever there was a walking advert for Pilates, it was Madonna at last night’s Grammy Awards. Revealing her ridiculously pert derriere in none other than a ‘bum scrunchie’ (that’s what we’re calling it, anyway) there was not a dimple of cellulite in sight. If you didn’t know this was a woman on the wrong side of 50 ( her Madgesty is 56, to be precise) it wouldn’t have been a stretch to imagine it was the behind of someone at least 25 years younger.

Whilst we all hold our opinions on whether this behavior is fitting for a woman of her age – and here I shall keep my thoughts to myself - the point is this: it was an unnecessary stunt.  After all, Madonna was at last night’s Grammy’s to perform her new single Living For Love – and it’s bloody brilliant. Featuring a regal piano line that harks back to eighties house music, it also recalls classics like Express Yourself and Like A Prayer, both tracks from the Golden Era in the singer’s back history. In the accompanying video, she even busts some Papa Don’t Preach footwork and Vogue shoulder rolls – she’s clearly cottoned on, at last, to the fact that her die hard fans have had enough of over produced dance songs and instead want what she’s best at: great pop music.

And next time she’s on the red carpet? Take a tip from us - you might have an amazing arse but let the music speak for itself and keep that butt covered up.
