Explain Madonna.



Can someone explain what happened to her face? Has she had all her molars extracted? I'm actually getting scared!

I'm thinking she was sucking in her cheeks momentarily, because I just saw pics of her the other day without the sunken face.

Freder Frederson said...

Has she been seen in daylight recently? Looks like she has discovered the secret of eternal youth and has started drinking the blood of young virgins. I bet if pressed a crucifix against her forehead it would burn the skin.

Synova said...

Not that celebrities never have their molars removed but I was going to suggest what Jennifer said.

Maybe she just happened to be sucking her cheeks in just as the picture was taken. Her jaw looks small, too. If her jaw was parted/pulled down just a little during the sucking in of the cheeks...

Jennifer said...

Hmm, yes but I like Freder's explanation better.

MD said...

Too little body fat is good for the Madonna-yoga arms, but unfortunately, leaves the face without much softness....and please, don't get cheek fat implants or whatever people get injected into their faces to youthify them, Madonna!

SteveR said...

I'm with Freder on this one.

Explain Madonna?

Can I start with something easier, like Einstein's relativity Theory to a Kindergarten class?

Troy said...

I think she's going for the Goya look.

Hoosier Daddy said...

I think she was licking a lemon.

Rick Lee said...

I think it's partly just the lighting... but I dunno... here's
another one that looks really odd. Look at where the jawbone meets the ear. It looks like an extreme lack of body fat I suppose.

Madonna used to be the best-looking Italian-American woman in the country, but ever since she made Evita she's been looking more and more like Ruth Bader Ginsberg every year. I can't explain it.

TMink said...

Her jaw line on the referred photo looks like the jawline of an anorectic person.

bill said...

Looking a lot like Icepick's xray. I'll leave it up to him explain, or not.

Well, let's see. There's the too-prominent cheekbones, the sunken eyes, the drawn, nearly emaciated visage -- yipes! Madonna should learn from another music legend that came (and went) before her.

S.T. Steiner said...

Madonna is working out too much, and is chasing the kids all day. Her Japanese chef has her on a strict diet, whereby, I think she needs Italian homecooking at our home and a chance to relax at the holidays.

Freder,

"Looks like she has discovered the secret of eternal youth and has started drinking the blood of young virgins."

My thoughts exactly. Looks like she is channeling an Ann Rice movie:

You got me! La Madonna, c'est moi!

MadisonMan said...

Drew, I thought you were gonna link to a picture of this legend.

Meade said...

Madonna mi! Sure that's not a man?

robert said...

>>Madonna used to be the best-looking
>>Italian-American woman in the country...

Uh, sorry, no... Marisa Tomei.

Dwilkers said...

Explain Madonna.

Please tell me that isn't on the test professor Althouse.

Maxine Weiss said...

And, her hair is curled !!

See, how pretty long cascading curls.

Althouse was supposedly copying Madonna's hairdos. I think she should also adopt this one. Make friends with your curling iron.

Peace, Maxine

Maxine Weiss said...

It's one of the prettiest hairdo's I've ever seen. She let her bangs grow. No layers, no graduated bangs, just let 'em grow and then you just curl them.

All these gay hair dressers that are chopping off women's hair. Of course, why do they want women to look good?, women are the competition!

Isn't it funny how all the gay hairstylists want women in short short short hair. Gee I wonder why?

But I think men look good with longer hair too. I love long, sleek waves and cascading curls.

Althouse is only in her 50s, how short is she going to go? When a woman is in her 70s, or late 60s...chop it off. But for a woman in her 50s, with good skin, no wrinkles, and good hair.....there's no reason not to grow it long ! You'll have plenty of time when you get older to go the short route.

Enjoy life, grow your hair---then curl it!

Peace, Maxine


Peace, Maxine

Rich said...

Hoosier Daddy...maybe she was sucking on a Spears.

John said...

I think she's channeling Madeline Kahn, from the end of Young Frankenstein...

Maxine Weiss said...

When Althouse's children were young, they used to watch their Mother brush her long hair, and they were mesmerized.

They were hurt when she chopped it off. It caused a lot of trauma.

When a mother changes her hairdo, it throws the whole family into disarray. And for sons....a Mother's long hair takes on mythical elements.

It matters.

Peace, Maxine

Robert - well before Marissa Tomei - think "Material Girl."

Curtiss said...

"...she's been looking more and more like Ruth Bader Ginsberg every year. I can't explain it."

Madonna is Ruth Bader Ginsberg.

Tibore said...

Explain Madonna?

What? Not possible!

Oh, wait... explain that picture. Whew!... thought this was an impossible task for a minute.

No... can't explain the picture. Still too much for me. But explaining Madonna in general... too much for anyone.

Disagree... No "used to be" about it, Tomei's still one of the best looking Italian-American women in the country. Rrrrrrrow!!! Woo-hoo!! Yeeahooooo!! Hamahamahamahamahama...

No... not obsessed much... what makes you think that?...

Omaha1 said...

Maybe Madonna is ill. If not, she is just too thin, and doesn't look healthy.

johnstodder said...

Marisa Tomei and Madonna provide an illustrative comparison.

I've never talked to any heterosexual male who found Madonna desirable at any point of her career.

But Marisa Tomei? (Makes Bob Hope 'Grrrrr' sound.)

I agree with whoever said she's sucking on a lemon. She's trying to become a Brit, you know. I think she's in her Victorian phase.

rgajria@uwm.edu said...

Madonna looks awful but then she has looked awful since the beginning of the 90s. Scrawny, Stringy muscles, and a face that looks sucked in like a vaccum cleaner.
She looked so much nicer in the 80s.

Maxine Weiss said...

Listen to me:

Boys care deeply how their Mother's look. Girls---not so much. Girls don't like their Mother's to get old, it's actually quite devastating to see your Mother get older. But, boys care more about things like hairstyle, and that Mama always keeps the same hairstyle he remembers from when he was a child. ---That she keeps wearing the same type of perfume etc..

We marry our Mothers, all of us, (we're all looking to get back into the womb) ...and so when Mama does something so severe like chop all her hair off, her sons are irrevocably "cut-off" from the comfort of the womb.

Dr. Helen will back me up on this---(not that I need her help-mind you).

A woman's hair is her crowning glory. The 60s hippies had much more of an effect because of the beautiful long hair. I disagree with their politics and the terrible drug use, but I adore the fashions and hairdos.

Today's protesters---because they are so skanky and grungy-looking simply don't have the power of the Hippie fashion style to carry forth their message in.

Lindsey Beyerstein---she'd better grow out her hair if she wants to be heard!

Peace, Maxine

Bob said...

Combination of yoga and kabbalah, probably. Or maybe she's discovered Scientology, and will soon be jumping up and down on couches and scorning psychiatry.

Then she can hook up with some young actor and get a team name รก la Brangelina or Bennifer or TomKat.

Tibore said...

Okay, honestly? In the beginning, when Madonna first hit the scene in the 80's, I thought she was hot, but I also thought she went out of her way to be garish too often. But in the pic at the top of this page??

(*shudders*)

Good Lord!... she looks like she's ready for Interview with the Vampire 2: Needs More Blood. I mean, I don't always say this, because I sorta like the slender look, but my God! She sooooo needs a lasagna and spaghetti diet for 6 months! If that skin gets any tighter, she's gonna be Mummy-donna.

But Marisa Tomei! (Any chance to say "Marisa Tomei"!): Woo-Hoo! Rrrrrooow! Hamahamahamahamahama....

No, really, I swear... I'm not obsessed with her...

altoids1306 said...

Why hasn't anyone said the obvious...she's slowly turning into Michael Jackson!

Steve said...

She looks like a robust australopithecine.

I've been studying for Anthropology a bit too much.

I think she just has her mouth in a weird position in this shot. Look at her just two seconds later.

Sissy Willis said...

It's an empathetic response to all those undernourished Third-World youngsters she keeps adopting.

dax said...

I think it's a cramp.

Ruth Anne Adams said...

Bob: Yogbalahology?
Guydonna?

Wade_Garrett said...

Chris - Her cheeks don't look sunken in the second photo, which is an improvement, but I still don't think she's aged very well at all.

I've seen Malawian orphanage babies that look healthier.
