This is pretty funny. Apparently, Elton John & Madonna think that just because they used to have songs on the radio, that radio stations should play their new music, no matter how shitty.
Elton John & Madonna blame “ageism” for the lack of radio airtime for their new shitty music, but the washed-up dinosaurs need to realize that they aren’t popular anymore, and should probably just go ahead and retire.
The truth is that Elton John and Madonna are ancient libtard losers, making crappy music for themselves; and while they may find their new music appealing, the huge majority of music-listening people would rather listen to fingernails scratching on a chalkboard, instead of listening to their so-called “music”.
Elton John & Madonna obviously didn’t age gracefully, and definitely think way too highly of themselves, if they think that radio stations don’t play their new only music because of their age.
IF Elton John & Madonna actually made good music, that people actually wanted to listen to, (which they don’t) the radio stations would play it. Period. End of story.
Sir Elton John turns 70 later this month. While he’s very much still standing—touring extensively and releasing records—evidently he’s increasingly upset about his new music not getting played on the radio anymore.
“There comes a point where you have to admit that you’re not gonna get played on the radio in America because it’s ageist,” John claims in the new book Captain Fantastic by Tom Doyle, a biography of the singer, which is due out later this month. “There’s a whole stream of different music come along now. And you have to face up to it.”
It’s not John’s first brush with American radio. In 1976 he came out as bisexual to Rolling Stone magazine and was reportedly dropped by some radio stations as a result. But ultimately his sales didn’t suffer.
Yet the last time his new music—as opposed to his classics such as “Your Song” and “Tiny Dancer”—received extensive airplay on US radio stations was 15 years ago with the singles from his Songs from the West Coast album.
Sir Elton is not the first pop icon to hit out at radio for being ageist. In 2015 there was an outcry in the UK when BBC Radio 1, Britain’s premier pop music station, wouldn’t play Madonna’s new music.
Radio 1 DJ Scott Mills defended the decision saying, “If you ask a 17-year-old about her [Madonna], they go ‘don’t care’ […] it’s a sign of the times, things change, it’s a generational thing.”
But Madonna told The Sun: “I thought it was so discriminatory and unfair. We’ve made so many advances in other areas—civil rights, gay rights—but ageism is still an area that’s taboo and not talked about and dealt with.”
