Her Madgesty, the International Correspondent

Madonna ArmsMadonna’s been published in Yediot Ahronot, as their “international correspondent.” Is it any good? I love Madonna as much as the next child of the 80s, but let’s just say I don’t feel like she and I are competing for the same columnist jobs. Forget the Random Acts of Capitalization that make the piece resemble a JDate profile–is what she’s saying interesting and relevant to the average person who reads the piece?

All the puzzle pieces started falling into place.

Life no longer seemed like a series of Random events. I started to see patterns in life. I woke up. I began to be conscious of my words and my actions and to really see the results of them.

I also began to see that being Rich and Famous wasn’t going to bring me lasting fulfillment and that it was not the end of the journey; that it was the beginning of the journey.

I’m thrilled for Madonna that she’s found more meaning to life than being “Rich and Famous.” But isn’t it easier to delve into one’s spirituality when the “Rich and Famous” is already set and reliable?

Madonna says in the title of the piece, “I found an answer.” But after reading the piece, I’m not sure I understand what her “answer” is, other than “Kabbalah,” which we already knew. For me, the question of Madonna’s journalistic ability aside, the real question is what can we, people who are not rich and famous and probably never will be, learn from her journey, and is she doing a good job of conveying her lessons to us through her writing? Or is this all part of the marketing campaign to ensure that her incredibly high-priced concerts in Israel this September sell out, in which case this article is part of ensuring that she remains “Rich and Famous”?
It’s unfortunate that this week’s column won’t dispel an interest in Madonna’s sinewy arms. Leave it to Best Week Ever to opine that beyond Kabbalah, what Madonna really wants is to have challah arms. Challah arms may look a little twisted, but they do taste delicious.

    Right on the mark Esther. She’s found the wrong answer, just a route to more PR. Kabbalah is about humility, purity, depth and modesty.
    All the things that Madonna doesn’t “sell” to the public.
    Just convert to Judaism and have the world despise you, that’s the right answer Madonna.
