I’m more than happy to see Madonna riding high in the charts, she’s churning out some good quality dance music and dance is a genre that’s been dying on its feet for sometime. There’s so much Mylo style nonsense around you may as well listen to music from the shows.
But this Semtex Girls thing, which has got manufacturers Explosia hot and bothered, leaves me feeling rather uncomfortable, as do her videos. On screen she’s an embarrassing grandma, romping about in that awful pink leotard with the geekiest of kids. A more gormless bunch you will never meet. They don’t explode like Semtex, but you wish they would. I have to look away.
