    Found this throwback to these two divas reacting differently to fans giving them the very same gifts lmao.

    Very dumb but kind of entertaining tbh

    I can offer this one personal anecdote. A few years ago we were attending an outdoor Madonna Concert at the Miami Dolphins football stadium. We got there over an hour early, to avoid the crush, and of course didn't.

    She arrived by helicopter just as we got there. One ASSUMES she had this road show rehearsed and ready to go. It had been all over the US.

    It was an unusually cold night for Miami. We sat outdoors shivering until 10 PM, for a show billed as starting at 8. No explanation for this delay was given, and no entertainment provided. We just sat there waiting.

    I was ready to leave, when it finally began 2 hours late, without an apology or anything from Madonna. I'll never attend another of her concerts again.

    Compared to a few of the other divas I've seen. Cher, Liza, and Bette Midler all started their shows to the minute, time as advertised. And had great audience rapport, and interaction. Whereas I felt like I was watching a Madonna video, with no personal connection whatsoever.

    So maybe this TV appearance was telling. I haven't seen Lady Gaga live yet, but I look forward to the opportunity when I get it.

    I'm assuming this is from a few years ago.

    At any rate, Madonna just keeps getting more charmless. She just looks like she doesn't want to be there...

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidMadonna has a reputation for staring her concerts very late.

    She loves pulling that cunty bullshit and knows she has all of her fans wrapped around her little finger.

    Well, it was my first, and subsequently my last, Madonna concert. Despite being a nobody, I'm one of thousands of nobody's who have bought her concert tickets & recordings, and thereby bankroll her career.

    If she thinks that little of me, fine, let someone else be made a fool with her disrespectful behavior. I've known some stars & celebrities over the years, and for the most part they are thoughtful & considerate to others, no matter how "little" they are.

    I've never been to a concert that started on time.
    I thought it was an industry norm to start late.
    Lauryn Hill was almost 2 hours late. That was the last time I went to see her.

    The only shows I've ever had start late were Madonna, and drag shows. A late start is kinda the tradition with drag queens, too, which I likewise hate. And then most of them run over, too.

    I saw Liza twice, and she started on the button. Even the Grand Diva Cher was right on time. And as for Bette Midler, well, I think they probably have to keep her confined in a box backstage until her first cue, or she'd race out on stage early.

    But then what can you say about a woman whose early career included performing to gay men wearing only white towels, at the old Continental Baths in New York City, with the unknown Barry Manilow as her pianist/arranger? Is it any surprise she'd still have great audience rapport? And nowadays you can wear more than a towel at her concerts. icon_biggrin.gif

    But I'm sure it's a mixed bag, and maybe some of the younger generation of performers and divas act more like Madonna. I mostly don't like their music anyway, although I'm starting to warm up to Lady Gaga, and would attend her concert to see & hear for myself.
