"This song is for the emotionally retarded. Maybe you know some people who fall into that category. I know I do," The Telegraph quoted Madonna as telling her fans. In fact, even at the time of its release, the song from the album Hard Candy was seen as depicting Madonna and Guy Ritchie's rocky marriage, as they stayed on opposite sides of the world for long intervals.
The show was reviewed by the Boston Globe, which said: "Everyone was worked up about Madonna's latest drama. Well, everyone except Madonna. "In an act of defiance at the TD Banknorth Garden last night, Madonna went on with the sold-out show just as expected. "She made it clear that 25 years of being a provocateur has taught her this: Madonna will let you know when she''s in crisis mode, and last night was not the occasion."
