Madonna's Come-To-Jesus Moment Comments (24)

Daddy, I want an ever-lasting gob-stopper nowwww!

W Magazine's 46-page Steven Klein portfolio starring Madonna and the newly-famous Jesus Luz (who may or may not actually be Klein's real-life boyfriend, not Madonna's) is about to pop, with 24 shots available on its Web site here.

Fass_madonna_25_v-1The cover is cool, but I'm not crazy about it, even if it is very fitting for a "Justify My Love" remake.

Or you can stay with me as I react to what I see as Madonna acting her age (50) but never acting anything less than sexually engaged (which is okay at any age) right here...

UPDATE: Please do keep reading below, but also, I said the few shots I don't love remind me of Sylvia Miles. As a sharp-eyed commenter notes, it's Andy Warhol's Heat that this whole sleazy (in a good way) affair most specifically recalls. Though Madonna is—ya gotta admit—a better catch in 2009 than Sylvia was in 1972:

The opening is very Sunset Boulevard to me, even if it's a hotel.

Madonna's rockin' the old-school cross but her styling suggests her character is herself old(-school).

Fass_madonna_03_h
Gigolos be swarmin'.

Cancer sticks are not sexy! Jezebel makes a good case for this as a boytoy-selection process.

Fass_madonna_05_h
She looks gorgeous and nothing like herself in this one.

Fass_madonna_06_h
One of my favorites! I want this on my wall now, please.

Fass_madonna_07_h
Easily one of the best. Beautiful.

Fass_madonna_08_h
Another amazing shot—love her eyebrows.

Fass_madonna_09_h
There is a defeated feel to this...the older woman knows the score, the men know the score and, worst of all, she knows they know.

Fass_madonna_10_h
Here is where things go undeniably Sunset Boulevard on us.

Fass_madonna_11_h
Love this. So predatory. Madonna could be every gay man of any age seeing this same thing.

Fass_madonna_12_h
This is probably the single best shot. Exquisite faces, so charged.

Fass_madonna_13_h
I hate this picture. It's out of place.

Fass_madonna_14_h
I guess the pants had to come on for the reverse walk of shame from pool to suite.

Fass_madonna_15_h
I'm going to tell you a secret.

Fass_madonna_16_h
Ugh, very Sylvia Miles and it looks like they're being photographed.

Fass_madonna_17_h
Lovely but so rude to French in sunglasses.

Fass_madonna_18_h
"I've done this 1,000 times before. But there's no reason not to go for 1,001."

Fass_madonna_19_h"Now might be the wrong time, but...did I tell you I have three children?"

Fass_madonna_20_hThis is a lovely picture. Will someone be restrained with that black tie?


Fass_madonna_23_h"I did it. It's done. I'll do it again."

Fass_madonna_24_hThis looks like a vintage movie still, less Gloria Swanson than Tippi Hedren via Monica Vitti (see following image).
