What Should Madonna Do In Houston This Week? (Besides Show Us Her Ass)
Pop grand dame Madonna is in Houston for two shows this week at Toyota Center that are close to selling out. They are sold out, right? I figured that was why she was here two nights in a row, unless she just loves Houston that much.
Hey Madonna, I know this great local place called CiCi's where you can have all the pizza you want.
Our Nathan Smith will be on the front lines at tonight's gig, with a report and pictures in the morning, unless Madonna's radiant light is too much for our photog's camera. It's sure to be a good time in the ol' downtown tonight.
I can't wait to see all the costumed revelers spilling out onto the street as the rest of us stumble out of the Band of Horses show at House of Blues, drunk on sad folk-rock songs about trees and shit.
Read between the lines, guys: I am jealous I am not going. I like her material just as much as any drag queen worth their weight in glitter, if not more.
With Madonna stationed in Houston for two straight days, I wondered what a star of her caliber would do to pass them time here in town while she wasn't yelling at assistants, sleeping, or carrying on onstage.
Of course, I made a list.
Eat At One of Our Fine Restaurants!
If you read Rocks Off's sister blog Eating Our Words, you know that Houston has some badass restaurants and food trucks. Madonna could check out (name of whatever new place is popping right now) before or after one of her concerts, and berate the staff repeatedly through her handlers for looking at her in the eye, or wearing pleather shoes. I don't know if I see her waiting outside of a food truck herself, though. I imagine her pulling up in a limo and getting an assistant to order one of those six-pound burgers from Bernie's Burger Bus.
Don't be surprised if you see Madonna visiting a few of our best record stores here in Houston, perusing the aisles and bins for all the Elton John and Lady Gaga she can find to burn onstage at Toyota Center to the delight and fright of thousands.
