MADONNA W.E.? Mixed Reviews

Madonna landed stateside last night to premiere her directorial debut “W.E.” in New York at the Ziegfeld Theater.

 While the dresses Madge wore to the
European premieres were a bit more understated, like the black and pink L’Wren Scott and the blue gown with Chanel leather gloves
for a photocall, you just never know what’s going to happen when you’ve
got one of the world’s most famous faces in front of the camera.

Madge didn’t disappoint. Madonna opted for full-on red
carpet drama in a sheer black Marchesa gown with a lace and sequinencrusted bodice and gravity-defying ruffles on the sleeves

With Madonna’s “W.E.” taking home a Golden Globe
just over a week ago (her “Masterpiece” won Best Original Song), much
of the buzz at the film’s NYC premiere Monday night (January 23) was
about the upcoming Oscar nominations. (Today).

the night’s well-wishers: star Andrea Riseborough , Oscar Isaac, David
Harbour & James D’Arcy + Lady Bunny , Carson Kressley, Diane Von
Furstenberg, Calvin Klein, Julia Stiles, Craig O’Connor, Ivanka Trum,
Vinny Moschetta, Zac Posen, Joey Selden, Mark Nelson, Arik Azulay, Donna
Karan, Christopher Jiménez,Ewan McGregor, Kristopher Haigh and Keith

Lady Bunny, whose opinion I do value says,I did not enjoy the very confusing film, which Madonna introduced to a
very impatient audience cuz it was almost an hour late and she gave a
dud of a speech.

And then the film? Make that W/E for
whatever? She fancies herself a story-teller? You can’t act,
so…direct? A complete head-scratcher whose plot lost me in the
second scene. In the very first scene, a woman does two things no one
ever does: takes a drag from a cigarette and then gulps some booze
before exhaling (!) and then unzips her dress before removing her high
heels? Never! Ladies, don’t we always kick off the uncomfortable heels
first? Unless you have a crap director who doesn’t know what she’s doing
and isn’t capable of catching stuff like that. Had to split halfway

When Madonna takes the Super Bowl stage next month, her performance will
reportedly be “imagined” by Cirque du Soleil and Madonna’s longtime
choreographer/ creative director Jamie King. The event may also feature
appearances from her “Gimme All Your Luvin” collaborators, including
Nicki Minaj. According to reports, the set list for the Super Bowl show
will include “Luvin” as well as Madonna classics like “Ray of Light,”
Vogue” and “Music.”
