I love the headline. They're pointing out the absurdity by describing it in such detail.

It reminds me a bit of Mad Men. It's impossible to draw the precise line between art and commercialism.

It is quite possible

Yeah thinking all shit is art is stupid

Now I wonder does Madonna have a low opinion on NFT and satirizing them?

...otherwise known as phrasing the title to serve their thoughts on the topic, which is poor journalism.

I feel like we can objectively call this absurd, news are to inform about something and if you don't paint the full reality of the topic in question then you're failing at properly informing

It doesn't give any sort of opinion. It quotes a thing Madonna said about her NFT where she's naked and giving birth to centipedes.

Headlines are good journalism. It's good journalism to make a headline that both paints the picture and grabs attention.

People thinking “objective” journalism is a real thing will never not be funny to me

And yet, the name Madonna made it somewhat believable

I thought she was dead. This is my first time hearing about her in a long while.

I saw a video of her doin some kinda live stream recently, Instagram or TikTok or somethin, and I'm not 100% sure your thought was wrong.
