Too bad the video is just shit ! As everything else on the Hard Candy era.
Not my favourite video and song. But i have a question. When we are looking at Gaga and Madonna we are talking about imitation. But Madonna and Marilyn, is this imitation or inspiration? Often Madonna looks very like Marilyn, especially during BA era. Often Madonna has look-like images, e.g. Girlie Show - Marlen Dietrich, etc. What do you think about it?
You are really sick, Pud. I'm worried about you.
She'd have looked better if she'd worn hot pants rather than biefs. On the last S&S 09 Show she wore hot pants rather than briefs and looked amazing.
Madonna has so cohesively combined Marilyn into her style, art and persona that its seen as more of inspiration than imitation. The difference is that Madonna hasn't jusy copied Marilyn, but updated her. You can see the Marilyn-inspiration as far back as the photo shoot for her first album. This inspiration, imo, makes Madonna a contemorary of Marilyn's. In contrast, Anna Nicole Smith more closely copied Marilyn. Smith (while successful and entertaining) didn't really add anything new to the image.
Marilyn was around many, many years before madonna came on the scene. Gaga copies people still current and in the biz and thing sfrom last year. BIG difference.Also, Madonna is much prettier then Mariyln was, IMO.Love Give it 2 me. Classic Madonna. Anyone who doesnt like it, doesnt like Madonna's first album. Sorry.
Madonna being prettier than Marilyn?? are you mentally challenged? please. No one is more beautiful or alluring than Marilyn, she's the be of it all, she's the end. Give it to me was a horrible video. And she looked dreadful.
Marilyn was a plain jane. Sorry. The ray of light video was awful, give it 2 me was fun. are you slow?
Madonna being more beautiful than Marilyn ?? LMAO ! What kind of joke is that ???
Of Course Madonna is more beautiful than Marilyn, what is wrong with you people??

I see many retards joined Pud's blog, nice
1) Tony you are completely right about madonna's and gaga's inspirations!2) give it 2 me is one of the best M's songs!3) i don't know if madonna is more beautiful than marilyn monroe, but definitely marilyn monroe is not more beautiful than madonna. i thing they are in the same level. they are not the most beautiful women on earth, but they are the two sexiest women ever for sure! and sex appeal has nothing to do with beauty.
Well Tonya, you just proved how much of an IDIOT you are. Marilyn Monroe a plain jane?? what an imbecile. Marilyn Monroe was way more beautiful than Madonna and everyone else, and she's almost 40 years dead and she's more relevant than Madonna.
I find a number of comments which are absolutely right... Vivaana i agree with you. Most of you guys blame gaga saying that she's copying madonna. But are you blind to see madge imitating monroe? Then rl81 said that she'd look better in pants instead of briefs. You're right man. And next i have to tell some of the fucking intruders in this blog that MADONNA IS DEFINITELY MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN MONROE. Hey Daniel babe, we agree we're retards. It's not an area for a wise man like you to graze. so bye. Hope you won't be here anymore...
Hey Munawar, I think Ramón should go, don't you agree?!Also Madonna once said "she has nothing in common with MM, except the haircolor! And that's pretty much all about it.long live the queen*****
Elizabeth Taylor in her prime was more beautiful than both of them put together.
yes, scount. both were beautiful, but not the most attractive in the world. it was their 'it' factor that made them so beautiful. ramona clearly is missing a screw or two. jorge, is that you?
Nick, absolutely, Elizabeth Taylor was definetely the greatest face of cinema, and the most beautiful. Marilyn was also incredibly beautiful but she had more sex appeal than Liz Taylor and that was her thing basically, but still a gorgeous woman.Madonna doesn't qualify as a beautiful woman AT ALL.
ramon, i agree. neither is jennifer lopez, megan fox and especially angelina jolie. all barf buckets.
Yep I've always believed that Taylor was the most gorgeous creature God ever created. Ramon, what movies/eras do you think she looked her best in?
Guys, excuse me for interrupting you. But I think you can argue for ages who is more beautiful and nobody will right, because it's all about your own taste and there is no the real truth answer on this question. But let say what Marilyn and Madonna have in common - this is a sex appeal or sexual energy (thanks JS for explaining:). So sex appeal makes Madonna look like Marilyn (even when Madonna is not inspired by her). Anyway they are both a human beings so they have to have something in common.
Munawar blabla just shut up, I'm here because I love Madonna and enjoy Pud's blog, so it should be you who needs to fuck off, you're obviously a Gaga loon ergo you can't be that bright, bye
Madonna is NOT beautiful. She's average. Period. But she AFFECTS beauty by using artifice. And that is what keeps her fans enthralled. She projects the image she wants to, with more or less success, and her fans hail each of those incarnations as if they were something extraordinary. Hey guys, its nothing more than make up, wigs, lighting, good photographers and airbrushing.
lmao@madonna being average. Those beautiful, wideset eyes, that stunning semetrical nose, that beautiful hair, gorgeous round face. Madonna is FAR from average. She has the ability to look like shit one day (hall of fame acceptance) then come out looking hot as hell (2005 grammies in the pink dress). Make-up can definitely make someone look better but ive seen PLENTY of woman who still look awful even with make up on. Madonna is a beautiful woman. Simple as. End of.
and ..., if it were that 'simple' as lighting, make up and airbrushing, why hasn't that female weird al, Gaga, utilized any of those yet? Ouch.
where would the world be without makeup?
