For many, Madonna is the blueprint for Pop supremacy and longevity. Indeed, she’s widely regarded as the definitive Queen.
However, even royalty isn’t exempt from the rigour of the music industry.
Madge’s longtime manager Guy Oseary recently shared a celebratory post on Instagram to mark the 20th anniversary of her critically acclaimed ‘Ray Of Light’ album.
And while the singer was similarly excited about the milestone, she used it to vent about how different things are for her now.
See what she had to say…
In decoding Madge’s not so covert sentiments, it’s clear she referencing some of the politics she’s faced when making her recent projects – the last of which was 2015’s ‘Rebel Heart.’
It’s intriguing though, because it’s always seemed as though she’s a) had the wheel of her career and b) wilfully hopped on musical waves during each of her “reinventions” and teamed with the “in” artists/producers for that very reason.
In any case, it looks like she’s driving in a different direction this go round.
With her 60th birthday and new music brewing, 2018 is shaping up to be a notable one for Pop’s most enduring superstar.
