Like, loads. Her response through her music is usually resilience; pushing it off as unbothered and coming back stronger than before. So I guess, after over thirty years, she was due at least one song where she admits, "Hey, that actually kind of hurts sometimes." and... who can blame her? When Madonna's career is looked back on in retrospect years from now, I hope there's focus on the truly brutal turn she had from the press for most of it. I also remember thinking that this song hit doubly hard around the Rebel Heart era because it felt like the first time she was treated as something truly... repulsive in the pop sphere. Like the very idea of her doing everything she was doing at her age warranted eradication. The incident with Drake at Coachella in particular, where he spent months flirting with her on Instagram only to run away like a child when he got what he wanted was the height of it. I guess MILFs are only a sexy concept when you're harassing them on Instagram, I guess. But yes, I like this. Queen sounds lovely on it, and... I think it just manages to avoid hitting my saccharine barrier because in general it's rather sonically buoyant. It probably boasts one of the more surprisingly catchy choruses on the album too. And plus, like I said above, sis has kind of earned a little moment of self-pity and telling people to back off for two seconds. It's easily one of the best ballads on Rebel Heart, so it makes sense that it has made it as far as it did while the more maudlin, treacly numbers faded away. The song, oddly enough, didn't get a slot on the Rebel Heart Tour despite it being an obvious favourite of Madonna's. I think it might have been rumoured to be part of the section that ended up getting entirely cut, but we'll never know. So instead, enjoy these performances of it on the Ellen Degenerate Show, and during the iconic Tears Of A Clown show.
