Very few people have experienced the exhilarating feeling of being on stage with thousands of people chanting your name. One of those who have been lucky enough to share that experience is Madonna, and she will always remember the first time she experienced it. She told The Guardian, “It took my breath away. I can’t begin to tell you … It literally sucked the life out of me, sucked the air out of my lungs when I walked on stage. I sort of had an out-of-body experience.” However, being the successful musician she is and going on tour all the time, she revealed that “eventually, you get used to it.”
Not only is touring something artists get used to, but having to sing their most famous music also becomes repetitive. Having to perform a song over and over can make it become one of their least favorites in their catalog, and that is what happened with Madonna, per The New York Times. Her old hits can get stale “because I’ve had to hear it five billion times already, and I want to escape that,” Madonna shared. Not only does she have to perform them, but because her songs are so popular, Madonna is sure to hear them even when she is offstage.
