We here at the Chaliceblog have mixed feelings on Madonna. Anyone who tries as hard to shock people as she does is sort of pathetic, but she is great blogfodder, so I'm always quick to read gossip columns about her. I had an unusual reaction to this today.
I was kinda touched.
It seems Madonna's father attended her concert in Chicago the other day, so she seriously toned down her act. Sources report far less swearing and she only gave the audience the finger once!
Late in the show, she asked the audience to applaud extra loud "so her dad would know she's made something of herself."
That is so deserving of snark, yet, awww...
