Madonna, 64, In Pigtails, No Eyebrows, Waxy Skin, Announces World Tour in Disgusting Video with Amy Schumer, Jack Black


What is it with Madonna? Why can’t she class it up?

She’s announced a world tour for this summer in video featuring a disgusting conversation with her, comedian Amy Schumer, and actor Jack Black. It’s not funny or smart or cute. She’s 64 and acts like prurient pre-teen.

Add to that the fact that she looks extremely weird. She wears pigtails (Lene Lovich, circa 1979), has no eyebrows, and her skin seems waxy. What she doesn’t seem to get is, aside from hardcore fans, the general audience isn’t interested in this approach.

Will this be her final bow? The only people who hope not are all the songwriters who wrote her hits and will get paid. Madonna is promising all greatest hits, many of them were written by other people.

The domestic tour features two nights each in New York and Los Angeles, with stops in all major markets.
