The new Louis Vuitton ads will feature Madonna. Yes, Madonna of the thin voice, cookie cutter electronic dance grooves and fake Brit accent. YAWWNN.........I think this is absolutely in keeping with LV's choosing celebs having a moment, but it is a little predictable and old hat in my humble opinion. Marc Jacobs, LV's creative directress, stated to WWD that he had seen her in a concert and loved her energy and some things that she said. I am glad that she inspires him because we each get our 'hit' from different places, but she does NADA for me (I am glad that she was an Obama supporter, though).
Her performances and appearances seem to be so robotic and over rehearsed - devoid of passion and spontaneity (Check out Beyonce for the art of passionate performing). Granted, she can't make it up as she goes, but you can't come across as devoid of emotion and heart, either. Nothing about her interests me - not her divorce, her alleged affair with A-Rod, her questionable adoption, her ultra lean physique or her music (and definitely not her acting). For over 2 decades, this woman has represented the dreams and desires of 99.99% of gay men all over the world. Since I am part of the .01% minority and I don't buy Louis Vuitton bags, I guess my opinion is a moot point. And on top of it all, I don't think she has been a true style icon since EROTICA (The MUSIC period was a bunch of hateful ugliness). I am not being a hater. I give her props for her success and brilliant business sense, but that is where my affection for Mo ends.
