An Open Letter to Madonna's Golden Grill

Madonna's GrillRemo Casilli/Landov

Dear Madonna‘s Grill,

When you first came into our lives on Instagram two months ago, we didn’t hate you (even though Madge instructed us to do just that with the caption “Dont hate me. Hate my #grilz”).

Her lashes and bright pink lip were just so fiercely on point in that photo, we hardly even noticed your golden glare all over her top teeth.

But then she took you out for another spin in Rome on Wednesday with your friends the fingerless leather biker gloves and black peek-a-boo lace bra shirt and we’re sorry, we just could not get into the groove.

So listen up, Madonna’s grill. We want you to leave our 55-year-old Queen of Pop alone and go hang around with pop stars who don’t remind us of Amy Poehler’s “cool mom” character in Mean Girls when they wear you.

No one does reinvention better than Madonna and while we’ll always appreciate her dedication to experimenting with her style, we think we can all agree that blinging out the mouths of Rihanna, Beyoncé and Miley Cyrus is much more your scene.

Your friends,

The People Style Editors

Tell us: is Madonna’s grill still in vogue or should she put it back in its case, never to see the light of day again?

She looks horrible AND silly

jeez, grow up, you are embarrassing yourself. Embrace aging, it happens to everyone… look ridiculous.

Bibi on

Nothing about Madonna is vogue. Just desperate and pathetic.

Lisa on

I agree with all three of the previous comments posted.

Madonna and her grill are smiling all the way to the bank.

pam on

I am embarrassed for her.

She looks like an idiot. You are not 25 anymore Madonna…you look like a 13 year old with bad braces and the face lift isn’t working it either.

Trvlgrl712 on

Didn’t grills go out a couple of years ago?

Zoe on

To quote some other people on these boards…desperate and pathetic. She needs to get a little class and people would admire her more instead of laughing at her.

Tash on

Just ridiculous….that is all.

Rai on

She is revolting. Retire it girlfriend!

Barbara on

Wow – way sad.

Help on

Horrible doesn’t even begin to cover it

I love Madonna… her extraordinary career, her excesses (looks… habits…her cougar attitude by picking a french cub …) but this piece in her mouth is just 100 % pathetic. She did not need it ! Au secourrrrrrrs…..

skye on

She looks ridiculous…Geez!!!!!

Oh Madonna, I adore you and everything you stand for. Why should you act your age? You are 55 and a strong and amazing talent (people aren’t in this Industry for that length of time without talent) and you don’t just suddenly die when you get past a certain age. Live life to the full, as long as you are happy with what you are doing who cares, you cannot please everyone… Saying that though, the grills are vile and need to go :-).

Madelyn on

OMG, Why is she so desperate for attention? Leave that silly nonsense to the young ones like Rhianna and Miley. It’s embarrassing and she making herself look pathetic.

Jonny on

Queen! Love it ir hate it. She has everyone talking about her. Madonnas ugly grillz more relevant than say gagas applause. 2013

adam on

i love and adore madonna, but i dont think the grillz do anything for her to be honest. madonna u are so much better then this. but yet again it is madonna so she can please her self!!

Grillz on

I want some!
I love her, the grillz, and the fact that she’s done it again….got you all talking. ALL of you. 30 years, baby! They’re GRILLZ! TEMPORARY!
You guys are sad haterz.

Grillz on

AND…Madonna isn’t desperate for attention….these sites are. She didn’t show up and say “MAKE MY GRILLZ FRONT PAGE NEWS!” Guys, get a grip on life. Promote what you love, not what you hate. If you don’t like it….MOVE ON!

Sadonna on

Madonna can do whatever she wants, people who say she is pathetic and desperate need to realise that what she has achieved in the past 3 decades and what she is still standing for is ICONIC, and far from pathetic. And we all age, so better make up your mind about her age when you yourself turn 55 years old. As far as the grills go, i don`t really like them either, but they are just a temperarely ‘thing’, so no worries.

To quote the Queen: I’m gonna be okay – I don’t care what the people say- i do ten things all at once and if you a problem, I don’t give a…

I feel kind of sorry for her. The strange thing I’ve noticed with myself is that if you dress with classic clothes you actually look younger. She needs to get rid of silly accessories like the glove and she’ll be fine.

Markness on

The reason it doesn’t fit Madonna is because she already did this back in the 90’s. Anyways, I think it should go. Just do something else like oversized sunglasses or something. ;)

Tina on

can you afford it? if you can’t then shut up.. leave her alone.
