The Material Girl was just in DC and took the Verizon Center by storm to show why Madonna is the Queen of Pop Music. There is no one in the world that can compete with her after this show and the MDNA tour. People have been giving her slack lately because her new album MDNA kind of sucked (which I agreed with until I saw the show. Now I love it. Kind of like when you’re listening to a cast recording before you’ve seen a show and songs that you didn’t like now become your favorites.) and because of the Elton John comments. Unfortunately, Madonna doesn’t take crap and if you challenge her, she gives it right back to you and takes it to another level. It was clear in the show who she was giving a big F you to which included Gwen Stefani (according to my friend but I didn’t see it), Guy Riche and Lady Gaga.
Don’t get me wrong, I love some of Lady Gaga’s music, but Madonna can create music that doesn’t have to rhyme to make me love it. Instead she can go out on stage and sing anything and you cannot take your eyes off of her. She is an absolute diva and one of my favorite moments, which you’ll see in the video below, is when Nicki Minaj says “There is only one Queen, Madonna.” Madonna took on her ex husband with a bunch of songs about anger and amazing effects. She took on Gwen Stefani (which I still don’t agree with) with having a marching band and drum line suspended in the air and moving around the rafters while drumming. It was freaking insane. The best though was when Madonna took over a Lady Gaga song on tour and did it 1 million times better than Gaga ever could. No wonder Elton John was pissed. Madonna sang Born This Way by Lady Gaga on the MDNA tour and then went into she’s not me.
Not only did Madonna’s MDNA Live Tour rip into everyone who compared Lady Gaga to her, but it also set the standard that Lady Gaga will have to reach if she ever wants to reach the fame and talent that Madonna has. Lady Gaga is amazing at theatrics and puts on an amazing show, but Madonna made it clear that she is still the one to beat. Lady Gaga talks about singing in her shows so Madonna flat out said that she’ll be singing this entire song live before she did instead of having parts of it pre recorded. If you challenge Madonna, she gives it right back to show that she really is the queen of Pop Music and that there will never be anyone who could beat her. Madonna’s live tour MDNA was amazing and her show at the Verizon Center was incredible. I’m still recovering from it. Here is one of the videos I found of Madonna’s live tour at the Verizon Center in Washington DC. She was amazing and is definitely my favorite above Lady Gaga. Please feel free to leave your comments below or other favorite parts of Madonna’s live tour if you have them. Lady Gaga is still amazing and has an incredible voice, but Madonna showed that she is still Queen. I love them both, but there is no comparison that I would rather see Madonna than Lady Gaga and will always love her music more.
