Perhaps Madonna is finally settling into middle age, now that she’s about 90% through it, as the Material Girl is displaying a newfound maturity. First she and sister-from-another-mister Elton John buried the hatchet, surprisingly not into each other’s still-beating hearts, and now it seems she’s calling a truce with upstart poptart, Lady Gaga.
During a concert in Atlantic City, Madge told the audience about Her Ladyship, “I love her. I love her. I do love her. Imitation is the highest form of flattery,” referring to Gaga’s “Born This Way,” which is basically an updated version of “Express Yourself.” But in the World of Madonna, a backhanded compliment is as good as genuine one. Then, in a not-at-all calculated move, Madonna added, “And one day, very soon, we’re going to be on stage together. Just you wait.”
A quick perusal of the dueling divas’ concert dates revealed that they might cross paths in late October when the “MDNA Tour” hits Houston and the “Born This Way Ball” heads to Mexico. Should Madonna’s vague promise become a reality, it would obvisouly trigger the Gay Apocalypse — the Gayocalypse, if you will — which would of course set the trend for the regular, boring Apocalypse months later.
The gays — always ahead of the curve.
