I don’t care how old Madonna is. Or how fit she is. I’d like her to keep her clothes on during her live shows. In fact, I’d love for all singers to stay dressed during concerts. So Madonna’s recent reveals — her left breast in Istanbul on June 7 and then her badonkadonk in Rome last night (June 12) — give me a sense of pride that the country singers I see will never start adding mini stripteases to their shows. So far, the raciest thing I’ve seen at a country show is Luke Bryan in tight jeans shaking it for me, or maybe Gretchen Wilson wearing her corset tops a little snug, or Tim McGraw bragging about wearing nothing but his buffalo briefs. And that’s sexy enough for me. What do you think about the Madonna baring-it trend? If a country star you loved started exposing themselves, albeit bit by bit, would you think twice about going to see his or her show again?
