Seen her many times. Great performer/ You both has not seen much in life. Madonna will sell out regardless of opinions.

One thing is for sure, I'm not going to shell out hard earned hundreds of dollars / yen just to see some nearly 60 year old woman thrash about onstage because she's 15 in her own mind. That, would be...over the Borderline.

Nobody is asking you. You don't need to thrash her because you never seen the show. She's a great performer if you have not seen her. You don't need to see her.

Will she be bringing her walker and a handful of her 500000000000 ex boyfriends to this show?

It figures. I've been there a couple times. Aren't 1/3 of them muslims? Madonna must be the ultimate "satan." I bet she's banned from indonesia too, like Pit Bull was. Those people don't know a good concert even if it slapped them in the face-

She has a very high IQ

Unfortunately, having a high IQ doesn't necessarily mean one possesses common sense.

This is progress of a sort. Still tremendously square by any normal standard, but not quite as much as it used to be.

The old days:

"There was one period of time when Singapore was cracking down on crime in general and I think that what happened was they discovered that if there was any drug trafficking it was usually done by long-haired hippies. My hair was not so long but it was definitely below my collar. I wasn’t going to actually perform at that stage, but they took my passport away and I had to leave the next day. Then we came to Australia and we did the tour. And when we came back about a month later, I just had my hair cut."

(Wild man of rock Cliff Richard)

During the 1970s and 1980s, many performers were told to choose between their hair and their concert when entering Singapore. This is Singapore's idea of long hair.

Kitaro stood up for his principles and cancelled two shows in 1984. With the long hair ban, if you were a SIngaporean fan of inoffensive synth noodlers, you were shit out of luck back then. When you consider Jean Michel Jarre, Vangelis, Tangerine Dream, and Klaus Schulze, crew cuts don't exactly spring to mind.

I guess that would just leave Kraftwerk, but I have to say, this can't be everyone's idea of fun, even in Singapore.
