Madonna Taking Break From Music

| Filed under: MadonnaMusic MinuteFilm FlickersSad Sad



Madonna is taking some time off from her music to focus on family and her upcoming movie, W.E.

And we hate the idea!

She told Interview Magazine:

"I haven't really been focused as much as I should be on the music part of my career, because the movie has consumed every inch of me. Between that and my four children, I don’t have the time or energy for anything else.”

It's weird. I don't have a record deal right now with anybody. I don't know how I'm going to get my music out the next time I make a record."

We'll sure Madge can find a way!

So sad. Her music will surely be missed.

    maybe there is a god after all…… not

  2. 2

    Great way to build hype! GO MADONNA!

  3. 3

    thank the Lord!

  4. 4

    Utmost respect for Madonna. She's every bit the icon that she gets billed as. And, not to say her musical efforts over the past decade and change have been BAD. She's released some pretty catchy stuff. But, she hasn't released anything that has really resonated.
    In that sense, she's kinda taken a break from music since the mid nineties… or at least since Evita.

  5. 5

    I think you are misreading her comments. She didn't say she is quitting music. She said she has been focusing on the movie for the last two years. But I'm sure she will make new music again soon after the movie is done which is being filmed this summer.

  6. 6

    YAY. it was the right thing to do. u need to know when to stop though she should have had announced this way back in time. no one cares about her here in the states LOL i never listen to her on the radio, she was banned since 2004 LOL. Madonna = FLOP

  7. 7

    take a break from breathing…

  8. 8

    not by me — she is boring and there are a lot of other more innovative and interesting artists out there. What she really needs to do is take a break from plastic surgery. Now THAT is a good idea!

    wow - those are some cheek implants

  11. 11

    uh thank god. maybe she can come back like cher did and SUCK!

  12. 12

    Right Sure! heard that story before. taking care of her 4 kids. She must mean the nannies. Old Hag!

  13. 13

    she just needs to say "sign me" to the press and she'll get alll the calls from any label to sign her

  14. 14

    Jesus is stuck up in her vagina… pretty much all she has time for.

    BTW she is fucking her face up!!!! Cat Woman!!

  15. 15

    Shes released some great songs in the past decade: Music, Hung Up, etc…..As for the record deal, many huge artists dont have one now.

  16. 16

    She's going loca with the plastic surgery.

  17. 17

    Perez will sign her right up!!!!

  18. 18

    Hate this! Clearly most of the people that are going to rag on her are Mariah's LAMBS. Madonna had massive success in the 2000's and Music and Confessions were brillant albums….American Life and Hard Candy were ok. I want her to focus and come back with something revolutionary like Like a Prayer or Ray of Light. I know she still has that in here especially when she takes her time.

  19. 19

    Re: Loverboy19 – WTF are you smoking? 4 Minutes was a huge hit in 2008

  20. 20

    Jesus !! She's looking like somebody deflated her face in that snap !! Is she doing some kind of 'plump up my face and make me look 10 years younger' type cosmetic treatment that WEARS OFF in like 24 hours or something ?!?

  21. 21

    shes delusional to think that anyone will care about her film carrear whether it be directing, producing, or "acting". music is the only thing she was remotely decent at. that is shes good at stealing other peoples musical ideas and making them her own.

  22. 22

    Is she going to the same esthetician as Roger Ebert ?!?

  23. 23


  24. 24

    translation - despite my hubris I have realized that I am a washed up old hag that 1994 doesn't even want anymore so I'll stop torturing the world with my "sad, old cougar embarrases family" phase and the deriviative albums it produced, lay low for a couple years and either;
    a) do the tiresome Vegas show route a la Babs/Celine
    b) drop a cookie cutter "greatest hits" album every couple years so fat, fifty yr old divorcees can wax nostalgic about the '80's when they - and me, the immortal Madonna - mattered

  25. 25


  26. 26

    Good for her. Enjoy life gurl!

  27. 27

    She needs to take a break from the cheek implants. Yikes!

  28. 28

    Re: jp1988 – Yes, thanks to Justin Timberlake. Her next single spent only one week in the Top 100. LOL. "Celebration" did terrible, not even Akon could help her. Get over it honey.

  29. 29

    Intelligent readers all know that Mad Donna has run out of people to steal from and be hailed as original. It's true! OHHH, woe is Madonna. If only Lady Gaga had remained a club act, the favorite of gays, Madge the Vagisil could be running around with a lobster on her head in her underwear. ajajajajajajajaja

  30. 30

    I think 'ethical' adoption agencies around the world should be put on ALERT … that Madonna's really an old lady … and that she shouldn't be bypassing any legitimate queues because she's 1.) famous … 2.) has lots of $ … and c) artificially youthful and can, minimally, make it to her kids' graduation ceremonies !!

  31. 31

    A-fuckin-MEN!!! Now retire PERMANENTLY!!! Alfabravo, you summed it up perfectly!

  32. 32

    Not that I believe she's quitting music, and I know that her children are with nannies a lot more than they are with her, (more so the younger children, as Lourdes goes out a bit with her mother), but, you know, Madonna's not young anymore. She's in her fifties, and I think that, if she finally wants to spend more time with her children, then that's wonderful. She SHOULD be spending time with those kids, she SHOULD have a family life, and her career should start taking a backseat to them.

  33. 33

    Those are some seriously huge cheek implants. WTF is up with this copious plastic surgery she's got going on?

  34. 34


  35. 35

    great move… exit while you are ahead…

  36. 36

    evil tranny

  37. 37

    It's sux but in a way she needs to rest and get inspired. I'm sure she will get a very lucrative deal with a major company soon.


  38. 38

    people should chill about her being old…. get a grip people… if you're lucky to live, we ALL age!

  39. 39

    What happened to her deal with Live Nation? I thought it included albums?

  40. 40

    Eeeeewwwwwlllll, Madonna's face is starting to resemble a female version of the Scream Mask.

  41. 41

    Yikes! I wouldn't have expected anything better than the comments on here since it's perez. I'm in my mid 20's and I love Madonna!! I'm sad she isn't focused on her music like she should be. All these bitches here need to pull their head out of Gaga's ass. Madonna IS the definition of not only a star, but an artist. As usual perezs' readers are sadly misinformed. She had the biggest WORLDWIDE hit of her's ever in 2005 with "Hung Up". She followed that up with another SMASH "4 Minutes". Which was, at the time, the fastest selling to 1,000,000 downloads in itunes history… if it was because of Timberlake he'd have 5 songs in the top 10 right now…yet "Carry Out" languishes on the charts and couldn't break into Top 10 even though it was the EXACT SAME ARTIST/PRODUCER COMBO? The only thing missing was…Madonna. Some people are just so stupid. Perez has got to have the most inane and ridiculous idiots who frequent this place. Sad.

  42. 42

    Looking at that picture what she really needs to take a break from is all the cosmetic surgery….yikes!!! Oh yeah, and don't let the door hit you on your way out!

  43. 43

    GOOD! Spend time with your family lady!

    "But, she hasn't released anything that has really resonated.

    OK, you seriously don't know what you are talking about. After Evita, she released Ray of Light (considered by many to be the best album of her career), Music, Confessions - all of which 'resonated' (to use your word) in major ways.

  46. 46

    Her cheekbones frighten me.

  47. 47

    good for her putting her family first.

  48. 48

    I'm sorry but I have to say I can't look at her anymore!!! She looks like a skeleton with cheek implants! And as for her music—- Please enough already!!! She's no spring chicken and she'll never top the albums that made her famous!!

  49. 49

    Just because this hag has been around a few decades doesnt mean shes a great talent. She cant sing, her "controversy" is contrived and always has been. She isnt a song writer to any degree. and she certainly cant act. I dont understand why she is being praised as some great music icon.. people are just sheep.

  50. 50

    Does anyone know what Madonnas job is when shes hired in a movie?
    To make everyone else look young…

  51. 51

    I thought her LiveNation contract included albums. She's so full of shit, trying to sound like she's edgy by going the indie/DIY route. Don't know what she's trying to prove directing, either..sorry, but you're no Streisand!

  52. 52

    She is sure MISSED…the crone hasn't got a hit since Moses parted the Red Sea. She's never on radio and the charts….and she'll NEVER be!!!

  53. 53

    Madonna is the best female artist in history. The female Elvis. Its sad the music industry is a horrible place she can't even make her own music she has to make what they want her to make.

  54. 54

    Thank God. Wish she would go away forever. So gross she is.

  55. 55

    Re: oopsimawesome10 – the ONLY reason "Hung Up" was a hit was because it sampled ABBA's "Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!", thank you

  56. 56

    Sell it on QVC.
    You could follow Joan Rivers.
    Jeanne Bice of Quacker Factory could open for you.
    Think of the possibilities.

  57. 57

    That's a baaaddd picture of 'Madge.' All I see are those godawful cheekimplants. She's starting to look like that puppet "Madame" from the 70s & 80s.

  58. 58

    Oh, Thank God!!!! It's about time!!! Maybe she will finally go away for good.

  59. 59

    she looks like the puppete madame

  60. 60



  61. 61

    Wait! Doesn't she have a $120 million contract with Live Nation…over a 10 year span that includes 3 albums?? Was this not inked a few years ago…No record deal my ass!

  62. 62

    Is she looking more and more like JOAN RIVERS????????????????

  63. 63


  64. 64

    bout time

  65. 65

    noooooooo!! Please my Queen! I hope its a trick and shes just saying that, the Queen will surprise us with a amazing new album before the end of 2010!

  66. 66

    Madonna take a year off but just one year & come back with a fantastic album as everything you do my dear !

  67. 67

    I've never been a massive fan of hers but I don't think she has anything to prove to anyone, her success and longevity speaks for itself. I do think she should retire from music though, she is in her 50's now and if she were to try another comeback I think she will find it hard to be seen as relevant, best to bow out gracefully while you can, that way people remember her for the good stuff instead of the cringeworthy.

    what she needs to take a break from is plastic surgery. she looked like a chinese who spent all night cryin at the haiti telethon

  69. 69

    it's about time she give it up for a while, she hasnt made a decent album since Ray of Light, which was about 12 years ago.

  70. 70

    Her cheek implants need to be a little smaller, kind of like her ego.

  71. 71

    More nannies stat!

  72. 72

    The Queen needs a break.

  73. 73

    Who is that old fart and what did she do with the 80s popstar madonna?

  74. 74

    NO NO NO!!! Make some new music M. We love you!

  75. 75

    Yo, Madonna, your movies SUCK, OK? Every single one except Desperately Seeking Susan, which was made before you had any "artistic control" over the film. I'm not a big fan of the music either, but at least it doesn't suck.

  76. 76

    She'll have an album out by early next year. And who can really say anything about plastic surgery-look at Fatriah's ridiculous boob job or the 6 inches Tranny CaCa chopped off her gigantic nose.

  77. 77

    Love her, but those cheek implants. Ugh. Gotta go.

  78. 78

    Sorry Perez but I don't agree. I'm happy she's taking a break with music and trying to focus on her children now: her #1 priority. Good for you Madge :)

  79. 79

    please do…

  80. 80

    I feel…that she's too old to be taking a "break" from anything lol.

  81. 81

    She needs to take a break from cheek injections for christ sake

  82. 82

    There's a reason you don't have a record deal. Quit trying to make music for kids and start doing music for adults over 21.

    No Problem

    Take your time BITCH=I Wait :)

  84. 84

    OH NO

    "it's about time she give it up for a while, she hasnt made a decent album since Ray of Light, which was about 12 years ago."
    Ever hear of "Music" or "Confessions"?

  86. 86

    her plastic surgery makes it clear she doesn't have enough soul to make great art.

  87. 87

    Her cheek filler is holding up…

  88. 88

    Man oh man this skank looks creepy and ugly

  89. 89

    There's the Madonna who was innovative and relevant to what music is today and then there's this washed up old plastic woman who is struggling to maintain that place. Madonna, you're old, why not just be old and at least have some respect for yourself. You're ruining everything that you were by reminding us that you will never be that again. Let it go.

  90. 90

    Lol, Madonna putting someone else before her. Doubtful

  91. 91

    Maybe she should take a break from surgery, nasty!

  92. 92

    She is great. She has such a beautiful voice. I love her so much. BTW, I saw her ad on 'Ric h kis s . co m' yesterday. She has her blog, album, friend circle there. Very popular.

  93. 93

    THANK GOD……… this tire old HAG needs to take a break, Lady Gaga has taken her CROWN anyways, R.I.P. MADONNA.

  94. 94

    madonna's face is gnarly now. im sorry, but my mom is the exact same age as her and looks way younger. granted my mom didn't participate in coked out sex parties for decades either.

  95. 95

    Some of you assholes need to get over the age thing asap. We're all going to get old some day and Madonna still happens to look awesome for 51. It's ok for George Clooney or Brad Pitt to get doing what they do and fuck people 10-30 years younger but God forbid a women does the same thing. Madonna is still a phenominal artist. She still had massive success in the last decade. Hate to break it to you trolls (and I'm calling on Phibes and Jesereyne esp) she ISN"T going anywhere.

  96. 96

    She should stick to music. It's what she does best. Every time she tries film it's a disaster. The only reason Evita worked is because it was a musical. She also needs to knock off the plastic surgery. She's looking too pulled.

  97. 97

    That sucks but that's OK; I'm STILL blast her "Hard Candy" album daily (plus a shitload of her older stuff), so when she's ready to return, I'll be around!!

  98. 98

    Re: CherryMalice – Very well said and I agree 100%. She hasn't stopped working since the 80s. It's OK to take a break if she wants to. I will ALWAYS love Madonna no matter what!!!!!

  99. 99

    And we all know what a wonderful actress she is…

  100. 100

    Thank god.She is so past her sell by date.fed up of hearing about her
