Exclamation Paul McCartney lashes out at Madonna’s onstage performance

Paul McCartney lashes out at Madonna’s onstage performance

http://www.topnews.in/light/paul-mcc...ormance-219168

London, Dec 5 : Former Beatles member Sir Paul McCartney has lashed out at Madonna’s onstage performance, in front of 12,000 fans.

McCartney, 67, spoke out at the opening night of his European tour in Hamburg at the Colour Line Arena.

“That’s the big wardrobe change of the night,” the Daily Express quoted him as telling the German crowd, baring a white shirt and black braces.

“Madonna eat your heart out – or words to that effect. I’m wearing something simple, do you like it?” he added.

In October Madonna, 51, had commented how she would be “too bored” if she copied McCartney’s performance skills.

“People have told me: ‘You could just go out there and play guitar and sing your songs like Paul McCartney’ but I’d be too bored,” she had said. (ANI)

I don't see it as "lashing out", more like teasing, on Paul's part, at least.

True talent has never needed all of the onstage distractions that non-talents utilize like 20 costume changes, skanky dancers and theatrics--it's all eyewash so people don't pay too close attention to how much they suck. People like Sinatra and Paulie could/can just walk out onstage and mesmerise by their sheer presence and talent. Madonna has done for music what syphilis did for petri dishes.

Yeah I think I'd have to agree... well, if I might have been offended if I were Paul, as it tended to imply his shows were boring. But it sounded like Paul was just teasing back.

Madonna is known for putting on a show though - I think most people who watch her concerts go more for the show than the music, actually. Macca is known more simply for the fantastic live music. You just can't compare the two!

I must disagree here. I'm a big fan of Cher, for instance, who ushered in the idea, I think, of costume changes and what not. It was born from the era of 70's variety shows, when there was plenty of time to orchestrate each skit. Each number was it's own separate segment. In one part of the show she and Sonny might be farmers being silly with straw hats, in another she was caberet on top of a piano in sequened outfits, and in another, in another a wild west character, and in another the lights went low and Cher would come out solo with her hair all up or really really different- soft lights glimmering off the jewels of her dress... so pretty... mezmerizing.

Maybe others did this before Cher, I cannot honestly recall, but to my knowledge I think she was the one who took this costume change into the concert area. She made it heaps of fun! I've seen her many times in concert since the early 80's. I just loooved seeing her change outfits. I'd go over them in my head and think which I loved most. Gosh, when I was small I'd try to make those costumes for my Cher and Barbie dolls. :)

Anyway, I think it is personal style is all. Cher has plenty of talent and doesn't "need" the costumes for sure... but she also is gorgeous and knows how to work it. It's so special to see her dancing and singing and all those beautiful costumes. I just love it. Props, too, like this big shoe she had in her show and slid down when she did the song about shoes... or the mechanical bull she rode (with a cowboy/dancer!) during that same concert tour. So much fun!

Michael is another one who I love to see what he chose to wear. And his dancers were amazing in This Is It! They said they were "extentions of the man"... and they appear this way. Yeah, I'd have loved to see Smooth Criminal with just MJ, but get the line of dancers aside him as he sang and it was COOL! And also it was so cool when they were all crawling the scaffolding with a 3D NYC behind them, like an urban sunrise... MJ had heaps of effects in This Is It because he wanted his fans to have the best experience, pushing boundaries. That's just sweet.

But then there are people like Lily Allen who I just love. She said it is hard on her because singers are also expected to be dancers, and she felt unqualified that way. I would be perfectly happy, too, to see Lily just standing up there singing her songs. She doesn't have to dance or anything. Her voice is amazing. (I also think she dances cute... but that is just how I see it. I respect she feels differently.)

So, yeah, Paul doesn't need costume changes. And he is certainly not boring! But Madonna is cool, too.

And ... I think Paul was just being cheeky. :)

Well, regardless, Macca has more talent in his right (and therefore, non-dominant) pinky finger than Madonna has in her whole body.

Naa, that's only because a snappier headline sells a few extra copies. I didn't pay any attention to it myself. "Paul McCartney teases Madonna" sounds kinda lame, doesn't it?

I like a lot of Madonna's songs. I think she is talented. She's a great dancer and I think she can sing.

For someone who has this on on stage



yes it would be time to change clothes

what a silly issue...people have been changing clothes at shows since the 40's like in cabaret but in Pop music give me one reason why Paul should change clothes. It would only hold up the concert. And most people do not go to a pop/rock concert to watch a dressing party. Sure someone like Cher does it maybe and I think that is all part of her show and what the audience likes but for people like Paul, nah. What is the added value.

Don't you mean put on some clothes, FP? I realize she needs to be quick between the changes but that's no reason to go onstage in her undies, surely?

Looking at Madonna's body. Covered? Nope. Protected? Nope. Adorned? Nope. Ergo, she's not wearing any clothes!

And, before you ask, adorn means to enhance the appearance of something by adding something unessential!

Madonna needs to either stop dressing like a whore or somehow look like she did back in 1985 again.
