Madonna’s new video Girl Gone Wild has received mixed reviews from media critics and the general public. On the internet some people feel Madonna is too old to be sexy since she is fifty three years old.
She seems desperate trying to hang on to her youth and reach a new generation. Twenty years ago, Madonna was controversial during her sex era with Justify My Love & Erotica. I like Madonna but she seems to be trying too hard to fit in with the younger female pop stars such as Beyonce, Britney Spears, Rihanna, and Katy Perry.
Girl Gone Wild is not shocking or a surprise at all it seems to me Madonna is recycling her old tricks. The male nudity, gay dancers in high heels, and same sex kissing isn’t going to shock anyone this is the year 2012.
Tina Turner, Cher, Bette Midler are older than Madonna yet they realize they have to evolve with the times. I am not suggesting Madonna can’t dress sexy but I feel she’s just trying too hard to be young.
