It looks like I may have the chance to ask Madonna a question this week. Questions are vetted ahead of time, which means 1.) I kind of need to think of one now, and 2.) it needs to be good enough to get chosen, though, of course, 3.) it should also something I'd want to ask. Asking her for a kiss, or asking how many men she's fellated (the only two questions posted on my fb thus far) are not going to cut it.
So if you were me, what would you ask Madonna? Some of my thoughts:
1. About her kids: How would she feel about them getting into show business? (Groan ... everybody asks that), or about her youngest kids specifically: How does she feel about adoption law, international adoption law, the US not ratifying the Convention on the Rights of the Child because of pressure from anti-choice groups, etc.
2. About her new movie: It's about Wallis Simpson, which is a fascinating choice, IMO. I did some googling, and found a lot of ranty crap about Simpson being a Nazi-sympathizer. I don't want to get into that (and really, I mainly keep finding the same photo of her shaking hands with Hitler, which could easily be ascribed to pre-WWII politicking and not some sort of fascism on Simpson's part), but I did ponder asking about her response to those particular critics. Or just a general question about the origins of her fascination with Wallis (which seems an obvious answer: Madonna, too, was a scandalous American married to a Brit, and she's already said how floored she was by the vitriol people spewed in response to the mere mention of Simpson in the UK).
3. The old standby: What's your advice to someone trying to break into the industry, blah blah blah, gush, fawn, etc.
