Madonna News - January 2020

Tracy Young makes Grammy History

Grammy history was made Sunday when Tracy Young became the first woman to win the Remixed Recording – Non Classical category.

Tracy Young wins Grammy for Madonna remix

“We made history, ladies,” an emotional Young said as she accepted the award for “I Rise (Tracy Young’s Pride Intro Radio Remix)” by Madonna.

Young had already made history by becoming the first female producer nominated in the category.

“In a male dominated industry, I proudly accept this for all female producers who have been overlooked.”

Previous winners in the category, which debuted in 1998, include Dave Audé, Tiesto, Skrillex and David Guetta.

“Learning to love Madonna” by Tracey Thorn

The last time I saw Madonna, she fell down the stairs. Although, more to the point, she got straight up again and performed a dance routine. I myself recently fell down a flight of stairs, and as I lay at the bottom, curled up in a foetal position, swearing like Ant Middleton, the image of Madonna flashed through my mind. It took me all evening to recover, and as I nursed my bruises with an ice pack, cups of tea, two paracetamol and a Valium, I remembered Madonna at the Brit Awards in 2015. After her fall she was back onstage within seconds, confirming what we all know about her: that she is NAILS. It’s both her strength and her weakness.

I’m here to see her tonight at the Palladium in central London, an intimate venue for such a superstar, and this evening is another recovery on her part: a total of ten earlier shows on this tour had to be cancelled, including the first London date. She has injuries apparently, and has been seen in online footage warming up backstage wearing elasticated knee supports. She looks amazing in knee supports, and it makes me wonder why we don’t all wear them as fashion items. Perhaps we soon will. read more →

A note to my fans:
As you all know i have multiple injuries and have had to cancel shows to give myself time to recover.
So as not to surprise you i want to let you know ahead of time that I will be cancelling 2 shows- on Feb 4 and Feb 11th at the Palladium in London. because doing 3 shows in a row is too much on my body and in fact my doctors insist i take a day off after every show but i believe can manage if i do 2 shows then I rest!
Its a miracle i have gotten this far but a-lot has to do with the fact that i do 6 hours of re-hab every day.
3 hours before show and 3 after with multiple therapies.
I have also switched to flat shoes and modified difficult. parts of the show. This has helped enormously but i still need to be careful and of course rest is the best medicine.
i never want to cancel any show and Im determined that i will make it to the end if i pace myself.
God Willing 🙏🏼 Refunds will be automatically issued to the credit card on which tickets were ordered.
I appreciate your understanding and sincerely apologize for any inconvenience. Thank you!! Madame ❌ . #madamextheatre #thelondonpalladium

Madonna’s Statement

“I am deeply sorry that I have to cancel my concert scheduled for Monday, January 27th in London. Under doctors guidance, I have been told to rest for a few days.

As you all know I have injuries that have plagued me since the beginning of the tour but I must always listen to my body and put my health first.

The last thing I want to do is disappoint my fans or compromise the integrity of my show. So I will keep going until I cannot.

As always- anyone who purchased a ticket will be refunded for tickets purchased that evening.

The show on Wednesday, January 29th will go as scheduled.

Again I am deeply sorry to disappoint anyone and please know that it hurts me more than you can imagine to have to cancel any shows.

Thank you again for your understanding.” – Madonna

Madonna on 2019 Year-End Lists

Albumism 50 Best Albums of 2019

12. Madonna – Madame X
According to Mark J. Marraccini: “Madonna’s radically adventurous and globally-inspired Madame X polarized fans and critics for good reason. It’s her least accessible album, but it’s also up there with the best she’s ever made….Years from now, we’ll look back on Madame X as the Madonna album that’s most closely aligned with the real Madonna Louise Veronica Ciccone, and one of her most artistically audacious and authentic offerings.”

Billboard The 50 Best Albums of 2019: Staff Picks

46. Madonna, Madame X

After two albums of Madonna sounding like she was largely playing catch-up to mainstream trends (2012’s EDM-courting MDNA and 2015’s collaborator-stuffed Rebel Heart), the pop GOAT decided to go back to blazing her own trail, and not looking over her shoulder at how many were following her lead. Top 40 and streaming audiences might not have been particularly amenable to her genre-hopping free-for-all, but longtime fans found plenty to chew on in the set’s unpredictable excursions — including a Walter Carlos-like dip into synthified Tchaikovsky in “Dark Ballet,” a Random Access Memories-worthy prog-disco odyssey in “God Control,” and a welcome return to Latin pop in the breezy Maluma team-ups “Medellín” and “Bitch I’m Loca.” Madge can rest assured that anyone still trekking along with her at this point is in for the long haul, and excited as ever for what twists and turns lay ahead. read more →
