Madonna Splashes $5 Million Of Own Money On Billboard Performance / Prepping CGI & Holograms

Published: Monday 29th Apr 2019 by Sam

Madonna is sparing no expense when it comes to her performance at Wednesday night’s Billboard Music Awards.

The Las Vegas spectacle is the first TV look for the singer’s new single ‘Medellin’ and she’s going all-out to ensure it’s one of the most memorable of her career.

Details below…

According to a new report, Madge is splashing $5 million (notably of her own money) on the Maluma assisted showing.

In a nod to her Pop royal status, the 60-year-old will rock the stage for 7 minutes – double the usual slot.

As for what the hefty cost is being leveraged towards? The diva is drawing on CGI, holograms, and more to set her performance apart from the pack.

It figures why her Madgesty is going the extra mile. Her new album ‘Madame X’ lands June 14th and reliable word has it that she’s gearing up for a mammoth tour in support of the set. As such, showcasing her live gravitas in all its grandeur makes a lot of sense.

    The Queen of big productions is coming. Beyonce?

    • QueenNickiMinaj April 29, 2019

      Who?

    • Jasmine April 29, 2019

      I see another number 1 Dance Chart hit. She is at the point where her catolog has so many hits every time she does a tour she will make millions just like in the past. Where Madonna and Beyonce are compared I see no validity. They were totally different type of artists who cater to different consumers. Beyonce is the reining Queen B with her large fan base and legendary status. Beyonce is the new BOSS just like Diana Ross was. Madge and Janet are the Queens of Pop. Mariah is the reining Empress of Pop. Mary J is the Legendary Queen of Hip Hop Soul. Toni Braxton and Anita Baker are the reining Queens of Sultry R&B. EVERBYODY has ‘titles’ and a fan base who supports them. These are the kind of women the newer artists can take notes from and learn some things.

      • Jasmine April 29, 2019

        Thanks oh plz you too.

    Madonna is Queen of Pop
    Beyonce is Princess of Hiphop and Soul

    • BeyonceIsBae April 29, 2019

      Beyonce is Queen of Music!! Madonna is the deposed royalty.,

      • Vincent Bernard April 29, 2019

        Who the hell are you why do you have my profile pic?

      • SMH April 29, 2019

        LMAO you’re confused dear. Madonna is Eternal Royalty, beyonce needs to get her sales up before she can be Queen of anything.

      • JOHNVIDAL April 29, 2019

        Beyonce Queen of Music? LOL I cannot conceive that title for someone so limited on the artistic front with zero songwriting abilities and lack of new trends. She is dedicated and has so much energy to perform though. That´s her force.

    • ??? April 29, 2019

      lmaoooo gurl please, roach isnt the princess or queen of anything except flopping with 14k sales lmfaooooooooooooooo

    • gina April 29, 2019

      @Queen Nicki um no, the Princess of Hip Hop Soul died on August 25, 2001.

      • XYZ April 29, 2019

        Oh, please. She‘s just held that high cause she died. If she was alive y‘all c**** would call her a flop as well. Honestly, I liked her music but she wasn’t all that and Beyoncé def has more than talent than she had (except of acting)

      • gina April 29, 2019

        Wrong. Aaliyah was given that title before she died and had FAR more talent in singing, dancing AND acting than beyonce. That title belongs to Aaliyah and Aaliyah alone. beyonce has no title except Jay Z’s wife and Matthew Knowles creation.

    • Ty April 29, 2019

      @jhonvidal for a person who loves to pretend you’re so ”knowledgeable” about music just because you stan for has-beens some dead some alive you would think a bald-faced lie like Beyonce having zero writing skills would be embarrassing for some who likes to pretend you have some semblance of intelligence. Also your claims that Beyonce lacks new trends yet her ingenious ways of keeping herself relevant something the dinosaurs you stan for can’t seem to grasp for example madonna premiering her new song on MTV of all places had she hit up Beyonce for some tips she might have got herself a Netflix documentary and actually get a hit song. Oh, interesting you never mentioned Madonna but dedicated a paragraph to the Beyonce though.

      • ??? April 29, 2019

        lmaoooo um, Madonna never flopped with 14k sales and still managed to stay relevant longer than roach has been alive. that little netfix thing still couldn’t keep #HomeFLOPPING from tanking harder than solanges album so your whole essay is pointless lmfaooooo ?? ?? ?

      • JOHNVIDAL April 30, 2019

        Oh yeah because having a docu on Netflix is so NEW LMAO

  3. I love Big Black C** April 29, 2019

    That still won’t save the flop song, nice try tho.

  4. Ty April 29, 2019

    Apart from this blog her comeback hasn’t really been generating that massive buzz…i wander what that does to an artists ego?

    • Seth April 29, 2019

      Yet she’ll have the hugest grossing tour of the year bc people actually pay top $$ to see her unlike the teens streaming BTS bs

      • SMH April 29, 2019

        No she won’t. She hasn’t had the biggest grossing tour of the year for a while now.

      • Ty April 30, 2019

        What does a tour have to do with it? U2 also have huge tours it’s not something exclusive to Madonna I’m pretty even basic as spice girls have a sold-out tour coming up? My comment was about her music and media coverage. Madonna is attention seeking narcissist a guaranteed sold-out tour is not going to stroke her ego. She wants all attention hence spending 5 million on an award show nobody watches.

  5. whut April 29, 2019

    All that money, and the performance will still be meh. Madonna is good for that, throwing grand distractions onstage.

    • Hmmm… April 29, 2019

      Lmao, you said it the best. But yes, this is a waste. The performance will be an uneccessary spectacle. You shouldn’t even need to spend this much money on a small performance like this in order for it to be enjoyable. That’s ridiculous. And people don’t even watch award shows anymore.

  6. QueenNickiMinaj April 29, 2019

    Madonna kicks assss!!!

  7. eric April 29, 2019

    It’s gonna take a lot to sell that song.

  8. K_man April 29, 2019

    Being desperate for a hit will cost you a lot of money. Too bad it’s all going to flop in her face.

  9. Fancy BISH April 29, 2019

    She’s probably gonna announce a tour ??❤️

  10. Seth April 29, 2019

    The song is ok but she will use this performance to remind everyone that her tours are still the best. I hope she does an old classic bop and her new single as this is to sell her tour. Queen Madge doesn’t just have receipts, she owns the MF bank!

  11. Gurlwepa89 April 29, 2019

    I can’t wait to see her performance!! Queen of Pop!! Why bring Beyonce to this, it makes no f****** sense. If you want to go that route Taylor and Adele are the queen of music and sold way more than Beyonce can ever. Google the stats, it’s in black and white unlike the Tidal streams lol.

    • WIll_xo April 29, 2019

      You just sound stupid , honestly , really ok. Beyonce Is a black queen in her own lane , the others have the white factor working for them ;it’s Black and it’s white ok .Carry on.

    • Jasmine April 29, 2019

      I STRONGLY disagree with the comment because Beyonce has sold millions of records as a solo artist and as Destinys Child. Taylor and Adele don’t even sell the same kind of music as Beyonce so why are you comparing them? Just to be mean and disrespectful to Beyonce by lying on her. Check Bey’s album sales and tour sales. She is the BOSS of this generation just like Diana Ross was for her generation. Stop disrespecting her. Your favs are Beyonce fans!

      • Lady Gaga April 30, 2019

        Then you & everybody should not disrespect the Queen Madonna as well, as her achievements are far larger than any pop tarts today. What all these pop tarts are enjoying are due to the barriers that Madonna has broken through.

  12. April 29, 2019

    I can’t wait, I’m always looking forward to seeing the legendary madge do her thing.

  13. Haterz Gon‘ Hate April 29, 2019

    Props to Madge for being one of the few who can splash the cash and bring us pure opulence and grandeur – we know she is an adept business woman – this will be a spectacle to signal the creative direction on the tour.

    However – just like Cheryl Cole’s abysmal last single and unnecessarily over produced live offerings – Madge is doing approximately too much with a DOA single. I mean, gal, summer is coming, give us some tempo or nah??

    No shade because she’s had a hell of a career and touring history, but you can’t rely on that to stay relevant.
    She needs a big production. She’s not the type of person you could drop on a stage with just a mic and a spotlight because she doesn’t have the voice to back it up.
    What a waste on such a poor song… I can’t believe they had nothing better in store especially before summer time and with all those latin flavored songs dominating radio.

  16. Delusion Checker April 30, 2019

    THE NEW QUEEN OF FLOP

    • QueenNickiMinaj April 30, 2019

      Rebel Heart first week sales : 116,000 pure albums
      Beyonce: Homecoming? : 14,000 first two days, 8,000 2nd full week:)

      Yassssssss

      • Delusion Checker April 30, 2019

        Rebel Shart is her WORSE selling album full of mediocrity and terrible songwriters.

  17. RollingInTheDeep April 30, 2019

    Madonna is the Queen and she slays
    Can’t wait to see her again in her next tour
    Her new single and album is fresh and modern with Madonna DNA intact

  18. RollingInTheDeep April 30, 2019

    The Queen of Visuals (album, choreo, live album, music video)

    Thanks for inspiring Beyonce and the rest:)

    Even Queen Adele likes “Ray of Light” album
