Just a bit of an observation here of Madonna’s Superbowl performance. With all the talk of late that Lady Gaga has been ripping off Madonna with her tracks and stageshow persona, we find it quite interesting that Madonna’s performance at the Superbowl reminded us of a chunk of Australia’s Kylie Minogue’s recent live shows. In particular the Aphrodite section and the cheerleader section of Kylie’s gigs.
You can make up your own mind whether Madonna has embodied Kylie’s stage show or not. If you search Madonna and Kylie on twitter and online there’s a fair few tweets/postings flying around implying that it was in fact a bit of a Kylie ‘Live’ impersonation. It’s fair to say that there are some similarities…..although Kylie sang live (no lip syncing). Obviously Kylie and Madonna both took their inspirations from historical figures Aphrodite and Cleopatra.
It’s all a bit sad really. It’s all entertainment too, so as long as peeps enjoyed it, that’s what matters right? We just thought that any folks out there not familiar with Kylie should know about her stuff too. Maybe it’s all a big coincidence. Either way, we are certainly no Madonna haters as we’re looking forward to her new tracks and hope (with all fingers and toes crossed) that the new stuff is closer to some of her better work and not near the bottom end of the scale.
Do you think the track and performances are similar?
Click on the projection video below to listen to the Kylie’s ‘Heart Beat Rock’ track live and see if you can make out anything that sounds like Madonna’s new song?
Feel free to comment below if you like. It would be interesting to get readers thoughts on this one.
Is it really another year until the next Superbowl? Boo!!!
