Oldie But Goodie: Madonna and Gorillaz

File this under "you're not a spring chicken anymore." I was very impressed with Madonna's performance at the Grammy awards. I hate Madonna, but she looked great and was dancing like the old days. I thought to myself, "I guess she's still got it." Unfortunately, appearances can be deceiving. She actually gave herself a hernia during her dance number and was taken to the hospital afterwards. I also stumbled across this old article from 2001 where Madonna's reps vigorously denied that had a hernia operation. I'm guessing that was true, and this Grammy incident was only an aggravation of an old injury. Which once again proves my theory, gossip is true until proven false.

BONUS: They took down the link at Yahoo Music, so watch the video at Devil Ducky instead.

She does look really good, but I suspect the scalpel and corset helped. Still, great dancing for a 47 year old.
Thanks for the link. Devona told me about it, but I never got to see it myself. Go Gorillaz!
By the way, I think you put the wrong link in the first article.

I thought the CGI of Gorillaz was awesome. When I heard they were going to perform live, I figured it would be a cartoon projected onto a videoscreen. But it looked almost three-dimensional. Great stuff.

Yeah, I'm on the fence as to how they did it. It looked like a rear projection only because the characters never left the back end of the stage. But, then Madonna walked between them. Maybe she was a rear projection too? We'll never know.
