Madonna and Her 24-Year-Old Boyfriend


I won’t even put his name because there’ll probably be another one in a few months.

But what do you think of this chronic “cougar” situation for the superstar singer/director?

Before you start throwing proverbial rocks of outrage, let me say I think it’s absolutely fine, actually.

Madonna is completely entitled to enjoy herself with some unretouched flesh.

The only tragedy comes if you start thinking you’re 24, or thinking this is some kind of balanced true love for the ages.

And if I haven’t fallen into those tricky traps, I’m pretty sure Madge won’t either.

She’s earned it!

Men do it all the time, so why not the ladies too?

Let’s face it, no one wants to sleep with someone their own age.

(Including the boyfriend, I guess.)
