After leaping to popularity, the Queen of Pop thrived in controversy, and she has managed to remain current and at the top of her game ever since. She is already a confirmed icon, and at 64 years old, she shows no signs of slowing down.
On the contrary, Madonna seems to be on the rise in terms of being a topic of conversation. Just this month, the internet reacted strongly to her participation at the 2023 Grammy Awards, with people from all walks of life expressing alarm.
Her new partner, on the other hand, has piqued her curiosity, owing to the age difference between the two of them.
Madonna has never shied away from controversy.
Yet, it seems that a lot of her manoeuvres away from the stage are garnering a lot of attention these days. Specifically, her choice of partner after her breakup with model Andrew Darnell, whom she dated for five months.
According to sources, Madonna, 64, is now dating boxing instructor Joshua Popper, 29, and was ringside last Friday night to cheer him on as he won at a gym in Brooklyn.
Madonna posted a series of photos earlier this month in which she was seen cuddling up to Popper. This could have been a declaration of their relationship, since it happened soon after she broke up with Andrew Darnell, a 23-year-old skateboarder.
Popper graduated from Rowan University in 2015, where he was a potential defensive lineman, and then tried out for two NFL clubs but did not make the cut.
He supposedly started Bredwinner’s boxing facility three years ago after leaving his job as a life insurance salesman and now lives a significantly calmer life than his megastar girlfriend.
Madonna’s new relationship comes barely a month after she faced harsh criticism for her unsettling appearance at the 2023 Grammy Awards.
Celebrities in the present day seem to be obsessed with maintaining their youthful appearance for as long as possible. It’s not simply about leading a healthy lifestyle and using smart cosmetic procedures to obtain the desired appearance.
No, it seems that cosmetic surgery and physical alteration are more popular than ever. It’s been a staple of life among the world’s A-listers for decades, and rather than declining, it’s only gotten more prominent in recent years.
Today, we believe it is important to remind people that everyone is attractive in their own unique way. There is no need to feel compelled to meet any artificial beauty standard. Aging is a natural aspect of being human, and in a perfect world, we’d all accept it for what it is: evidence that you’ve lived while so many others haven’t.
That’s why it’s so painful to witness some public figures drastically alter their looks as they age.
We’ve discussed numerous instances in recent months—just last year, for example, we discussed fans’ concerns over Simon Cowell’s new style—but we’d be remiss if we didn’t take a brief look at a specific Madonna clip that went viral after the Grammys.
Madonna paid tribute to the world’s “troublemakers” when she presented before Sam Smith’s performance, saying that she was here to honor all the rebels out there who were building a new path and taking the fire for it. All those troublemakers out there, you need to know that your courage is not going unappreciated. She added that, you are seen, you are heard, and most importantly, you are valued.
Madonna’s remarks, although powerful, did not get nearly as much attention as her face, which admirers online were quick to notice. With her big lips, bloated cheeks, and braided hair, several said they couldn’t identify her.
Madonna then said that the surgery just made her face bigger, and she called those who didn’t like it “mysogynistic.”
Are you a Madonna fan? Do you believe she should be seeking someone her own age? Please share your ideas in the comments section.
