Skip to comments.Is that stress showing in your face, Madonna, or attempts to defy the ravages of time?

Dressed up to the nines and wearing plenty of make-up, Madonna still manages to look pretty sensational for a woman rapidly approaching her half century.
But bare-faced and in short sleeves, she reveals some of the gruelling health and beauty regime behind the glamour.
Madonna, seen holding hands with her daughter Lourdes as they left a Kabbalah centre in New York, wore a T-shirt which exposed the veins standing out on arms subjected to endless workouts.

“we pick?” Your reality is a bit off. THEY pick the raod they take.
And speak for yourself!
I think what a woman has on the inside shows more as she gets older.
I was kind of surprised that she went back to that after she seemed to be trying to gain some British respectability with her childrens' books. Maybe the video with Justin should have clued everyone in about the impending split with her husband.
Very funny posts. Looks a little like Steven Tyler, no?
Ok, educate me. Why am I supposed to be glad that she looks older than 25?
She may be rich but that certainly hasn’t bought her way out of ugly.
You are good... although, of course, Madonna was never anyone's 'coy' mistress.
> There are lots of beautiful women past 50 (Dana Delany, Linda Carter, and Mel Harris come to mind) but Madonna is not and will never be one of them.
Madonna has been ridden hard and put away wet for many years, and it shows.
Desperately Seeking Calories.
No, what’s horrifying is that she has obviously had implants inserted into her face and collagen injected into her upper lip, and is meanwhile starving herself down to cadaverous levels in order to look 30. Better to just look 50.
The face that over cocktails looked so sweet
May not look that sweet over shredded wheat.
Damm he was smart.
> We pick a small percentage of the population. We give those people money and put their pictures on TV constantly. Then we try to kill them.
Hand me a crying towel! In the case of Madonna, this is something that she pursued vigorously, and nobody put a gun to her head to do it. “We” didn’t do anything but watch.
Celebrity is a double edged sword: fun while it lasts but it sucks when its past its use-by date.
Self-inflicted injury should always be punished as such.
Does your life model include ridicule for those who look older than they want to look? If so, good luck.
> Does your life model include ridicule for those who look older than they want to look? If so, good luck.
My life model includes ridicule for people who feel the need to pretend to be something that they are not.
In Madonna’s case, “mutton dressed as lamb.”
BUT LOOK AT THOSE HANDS/ARMS!!!!!
Does that do something positive for you?
Yah. I’m 43 myself. I don’t think anyone’s mocking her for reaching 50. They’re horrified by how grotesque she’s become in fighting it.
When they open their ignorant pie holes, well, I sure do. Metaphorically speaking. Kill your TV now; get 2 birds with one stone..
Oh Yeah, she’s the bomb now. Glad I waited till she was in her prime to make my move.
> Does that do something positive for you?
Just dispensing Justice without fear or favor, ma’am. This is every good Citizen’s sworn duty.
Thank you. There's nothing wrong (or necessarily unattractive) in growing older. But Madonna has given herself the Waylan Flowers and Madam look with those cheek implants.
Madonna’s pretty handy with those B-12 shots, according to usmagazine.com.
Back in March, Timberlake admitted getting a B-12 shot from Madonna while working on her album “Hard Candy,” according to people.com.
Its not just Justin Timberlake who dropped his pants for Madonna, for Scottish actor Gerard Butler too did the same for the stunning singer.
The 300 star revealed that the Queen of pop also asked him to bare his bottom to give him a vitamin jab.
“I got in a B-12 shot in my a— by...” the Hollyscoop quoted him as saying.
“I was sick, and she was a nurse basically. Guy introduced me to her and she said, ‘’You’’re the sick one?’’ and I said, ‘’Yes. Well, she was amazing. She just said, ‘’Drop your pants,’’ Butler said.
“I stood there with my little bottom out, and she gave me a shot in the bum!” he added.
“Every time I do a show, I die a little bit, but no sh** is worth doing unless you’re willing to die for it.”
Madge needs to embrace being fifty and accept that there are 25 year olds now in ‘her’ place now in the music industry and evolve forward...not try to hang on to 1983. And the smart girls on top now in the music business need to invest well; surround themselves with honest people; and learn from Madonna’s (and others—think Cher for one) mistakes...and learn to age gracefully. Helen Mirren rocks...she looks her age...but with a healthy gusto that she (HM) is comfortable in her own (read ‘own’) skin.
To His Not-So-Coy Mistress
Times Wingèd Chariot (poets say)
Warns us to love while yet we may;
Must I not hurry all the more
Who find it parked outside my door?
For those who sipped Love in their prime
Must gulp it down at Closing Time.
She’s always sort of had arms like that.
She’s a dancer, my guess is she’s totally worked away and lost all her body fat. If she’s used to giving shots, maybe she’s done some steroids.
People don’t realize that as you get older, if you have no body fat, you get haggard and skeletal.
Madonna’s a Catholic-angsted endorphin/adrenaline junkie. She began as a classically trained ballet dancer (like Sarah Jessica Parker), then morphed into the NY pop scene where she dabbled in ballet/modern fusion, got discovered (probably by Soros if you consider her heathenization of American youth).
Her mom died when she was 6. Her father was hard on her; her videos reflect that.
She’s nuts, she almost single-handedly steered our culture nuts, but her psychoses are easy to identify.
She’s also a Leo as are Barack Obama and Bill Clinton. Attention whores at the highest level.
Finally...good news for PaMom...given my ample reserves, I shall look rested and healthy in my coming years.
I have wondered about the 'roids myself. She is too muscular looking (but, hey...its not like she has a time limit on how long she can work out).
Mama Don’t Eat.
I recall an interview w/Madge and Rosie O'Donnell (during the time they were promoting their picture, A League of Their Own). Rosie said she knew, before she actually met Madonna, that she too had lost her mother young. My mom passed away when I was young also, and I too have always figured out who was raised with a mom, and who wasn't.
And my very close companion
gets me fumbling, gets me laughing
she's a hundred but she's wearing something tight!
and I lift my glass to the Awful Truth
which you can't reveal to the Ears of Youth
except to say it isn't worth a dime.
And the whole damn place goes crazy twice
and it's once for the devil and once for Christ,
but the Boss don't like these dizzy heights
we're busted in the blinding lights,
of CLOSING TIME
She looks like pics I have seen of meth addicts.
Remember Colleen Dewhurst? Now that was a lady.
Hey, my daddy and my oldest daughter are Leos (Dad shares a birthday with Madonna, something he’s not thrilled with.) Dad’s the good kind-of Leo and proudly humble. We’ll see with the daughter!
Say, I wasn’t dissin Leos, just demostrating what power they have when the MSM gets behind them.
I love Leos, except when they’re running for Planetary Leader.
I think the problem is she is a perfectionist and is AFRAID to age, so she does things that are unnatural- like the cheek implants, working out way too much, and allegedly uses growth hormones (which also gives the harsh look). That, coupled with the fact that’s she’s a wee bit unlikable are why people take pleasure in her looking like sh*t. I, personally, don’t take pleasure in it, but I do wonder what the heck she is thinking!! I’d rather see someone age naturally and gracefully. Madonna is rich enough, she doesn’t have to fight aging. She has “f*ck you money,” which means she doesn’t need to impress anyone, anymore.
Oh, plus she is allegedly a homewrecker right now, and no-one likes those.
What did Mae West ever do to you to deserve such a despicable attack.
Recently Bridgette Bardot was in the news for her sensiblities regarding her beloved France being taken over by Islamists (BB is very smart and well spoken). She was just trounced (here and on the celeb sites) for...HORROR...looking like a women in her late sixties! Wow...forget what she has to say...but, gee whiz, why hasn't she been under the knife?
Ha ha! Great post.
Lucky Star.. probably her best, imo.
So, basically what you are saying is, "Shelayne, get your butt in that kitchen and eat some brownies!"
Oh, I think Leos can go really bad when they do go bad, and entertainment and politics are full of the bad ones, because they need the adulation to survive. I once worked for a Leo that went to the Stalin school of leadership, but I have a boss now who is a Leo, and she's great. It's been a test of my patience to raise a Leo daughter, let me tell you...
