From The Vault: Madonna – ‘Human Nature’

This week saw us ask you who you who you considered to be the reigning Queen of Pop. For many, that title belonged to none other than Madonna!

By constantly reinventing herself, she has tackled numerous musical genres and has amazed the masses by being equally comfortable singing Pop-by-the-numbers tunes or fearlessly riding a Hip-Hop beat.

Today we will travel back to a time when her Madgesty was experimenting with R&B, cue this week’s From The Vault ‘Human Nature’.

The final single from her underrated sixth album, 1994’s‘Bedtime Stories’, the G-Funk tinged cut is an open-letter to the press after the backlash she had suffered following the ‘Erotica’ era (especially the Sex book). She adopts an unapologetic attitude and explains that she shouldn’t be stoned for exploring her fantasies, for expressing herself – urging the listener to do the same.

‘Nature’s accompanying visual is even more notorious than the song. Deemed by many as avant-garde, the latex-heavy video depicts a corn-rowed material girl as a bondage queen, backed by a group of dancers, executing intricate choreography and acrobatics. What sets it apart from other clips is its remarkable art direction and cinematography as well as its simplicity, once again proving that less can indeed be more.

No matter which blonde currently rules the world charts and no matter what her naysayers think of her, Madonna should forever be respected, if not for her impressive back catalogue, amazing videos and critically-acclaimed tours; at least for universally raising the bar for Pop acts, especially female acts, and making it the norm to constantly want to push social or cultural barriers release after release.

Hot Shots: Aubrey O’Day Celebrates Gay Pride

Pop vixen Aubrey O’Day continued to show her on-going support for the gay community this weekend, when she hosted a Pride celebration at the Shark Club in Costa Mesa, California.

Ms. O’Day looks good and all, but an update on her album wouldn’t go amiss. The material was sounding hot tamale. Yet, all has gone noticeably silent since the end of Oxygen’s ‘All About Aubrey’ and the announcement of her record deal with SRC/Universal.

In any case, peep more pics of the singer, 27, spreading that rainbow love below…

The Next Queen Of Pop Will Be…

Titles in Pop music are about as common as gratuitous  yodeling is on a Trey Songz LP.

Ever debated and ever changing, the last twenty years have seen some artists rise to the dizzy heights of Pop royalty and seen some fall from grace to find themselves in the pits of Pop peasantry.

Of course, the most coveted title for any female artist with half a glass of ambition is the title of Queen Of Pop, a title which many  argue is still held by both  Madonna and Janet Jackson.

Now it’s time for you to decide who you feel the next Queen of Pop will be by voting for each artist in the following categories:

Vocal Ability

Stage Presence

Music Video Epicness

Fan Interactivity

Choreography

Overall Artistic Credibility

Impact On Pop Culture To Date
