"Madonna has released three new singles in a short time."
"Have you noticed them?"
"If the answer is no, no one should be surprised."
"Madonna unobtrusive in the flooded world."
"If a new song is not top ten list of ”New music Friday” on Spotify and many major record labels in the day that there is a failure."
"The last three singles by Madonna has barely passed the kvalgränsen."
"None of them can be seen either to on the music service's global list of the 50 most streamed songs."
"Billie Eilish has, by comparison, the five songs on the same list."
"Her hit ”Bad guy” has so far streamed over 263 million times, Madonna's ”Medellín” has streamed modest 12 million times."
"the Same song with Madonna has more than 20 million views on Youtube while Billie Eilish has over 150 million for the ”Bad guy” and ”Bury a friend”, per piece."
"Spotify and Youtube, says a lot about an artist's current popularity, but not everything."
"Madonna is no novelty, but has a fanbase that has followed her for 35 years, and many of them use certainly not streamed services as their primary music source. Their idol currently belong to a small and exclusive group that people at least want to get to see, or see again, before they themselves or the artist in question dies. What they think about Madonna's new songs probably does the same. Rather a ”Like a prayer” than seven numbers after 2005."
"In an interview with british Vogue says Madonna that she is being punished for, she is 60 years old, that she is not enough young anymore."
"She has a great score."
"It is difficult for a woman to continue to be a world leader and of the modern pop star after 50, especially because the youth is the genre's most important currency. Most of the artists who manages to have long and successful careers to preserve a sound that they created when they broke through. Others can continue to carve in more traditional terms as rock, blues and country."
"From that perspective, it is Madonna right alone after 60. She has no role models, either past or present, who can match her situation."
"In many ways it is probably easier to be Bruce Springsteen. Personally, I think it is barely possible to compare them."
"Springsteen is Springsteen, Madonna has always been something different and greater."
"Play with the idea to pick off any of them out of the pop - and rock history. I love Springsteen, but if he had never left New Jersey, we would still sit and talk about Bob Dylan."
"If Madonna, however, had never released ”Like a virgin” in 1984 would pophistorien not have been the same."
"Along with Michael Jackson and Prince, she invented the modern pop star. What she has done as a feminist icon and the LBTQ activist is not possible to measure in streams or money."
"On Saturday, leaving Madonna all possible radio and mediaskugga when she does mellanakten during the final of the Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv. The performance will consist of a new song and an old hit, it is funded by the billionaire financier Sylvan Adams and, according to the british mediauppgifter cost a million dollars (9.6 million euros)."
"the Last single ”Crave” is, but to be directly impressive, a case forward where the Madonna absorb new musical currents without sounding like anyone other than himself."
"However, neither any age - or gender-based discrimination to be the whole explanation behind the two earlier singles struggling for air and attention. "
"It requires much stronger songs than ”Medellin” and ”Rise” to fight up on top today."
"Both are among the faintest and the worst Madonna has done."
"And then we are talking still about an artist who once gave out the song ”Also panky”. "
"1. ”Chernobyl” (miniseries, HBO Nordic)nFörsta section was a klaustrofobiskt great things. The radioactive threat went straight through the box. If you had a geiger counter in the sofa watching tv, it would have started snapping dangerously high and intense."
"2. ”Prayer for Chernobyl” (the book, Svetlana Aleksijevitj)nKärnkraftverkets collapse and the deadly repercussions of which are depicted here quietly, mercilessly. Belarusian nobel prize winner and author Svetlana Aleksijevitj interviewed people affected by the disaster in three years ' time. Their words are unforgettable."
"3. The ”environment” (tv episodes, Filip & Fredrik)nEtt something, ehm, different perspective on the Chernobyl accident, which aired in 2010. In the tv program ”Boston Tea Party” challenged hypokondrikerna Filip Hammar and Fredrik Wikingsson themselves by pulling to the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. They wanted, among other things, examine whether the red wine protected against radiation. The rest is... any form of history. "
