Lately, celebrity magazines have suggested she's less enthusiastic about Ritchie, although she has said they are very much together.
Madonna has made no secret of her devotion to the Jewish mystic faith. This spiritual warrior has no problem being photographed in a track suit sans makeup on her way to a meeting.
"I don't think she's necessarily concerned about making a statement," Billboard's Caulfield said. "She's interested in getting her point of view across and saying something important about the world and how her life relates to the world."
"But that doesn't mean she can't glam it up," he added. Should those track suits turn up on stage for her tour, Caulfield said, "I think they'll be highly stylized, with a lot of bling."
Parmenter is waiting to be surprised at what new image Madonna will put into the zeitgeist. "You can never second-guess her," she said.
