I'm watching Madonna on TV, it's her performance from the BBC's Big Weekend and my feelings are mixed. I have been a Madonna fan since I was 10 and spent many, many hours dancing to La Isla Bonita when I was a teenager.

The show was going really well; then she decides to play the guitar. It's obvious that she's not a natural musician. She has to concentrate so hard that she is practically standing still throughout the whole song. Her singing which is dodgy at the best of times goes completely tuneless ...

Madonna, please - leave the guitars to guitarists. Stick to the jaw-dropping dance routines, the edgy clothes, the fantastic staging...that's why we love you.
