The moment a fanbase becomes a majority of people just saying "YASSSSSSSSS" to everything and thinking everything's fantastic is when it loses its grip on reality and ventures into the land of delusion. I love Madonna, and have had very little to complain about during this era. Yeah okay so the Living For Love video wasn't "amazing", but it was okay. I didn't feel I needed to complain about it - I just lost interest in it pretty quickly to be honest. I absolutely ADORED Living For Love, but i was extremely disappointed that it didn't have a properly designed cover for the single. It's almost like they forgot, or couldn't be bothered. I dunno. But as a fan, I think I have the right to complain about it. I bought the single, I paid for a product. If i found fault with it, then I think i'm allowed to voice my opinion.
Hasn't Madonna taught us - express yourself, don't repress yourself?? :wink: "Negativity" is subjective. I think that a lot of fans have struggled this era, and had a hard time with a lot of things. Living For Love "flopping", the album not hitting number 1 in the US or the UK, and all the shitty press that she's got. People are allowed their opinion, and they're allowed to complain. It only makes matters worse when you get people complaining about people who are complaining. It's a bit hypocritical. Surely what matters is what YOU think of what Madonna's currently doing. If you like it, then that's the important thing. If someone else doesn't like it, then that's their prerogative. Telling them to stop being "negative" or whatever won't change anything.
