Madonna's gifts to Malawi's children

Madonna shipped boxes and bales containing toys, chocolate and sweets to six orphanages in Malawi. Along with the goodies, the Queen Of Popincluded a handwritten note that read "To my Malawi children on Christmas and Boxing Day. I wish I was with you. See you soon, M." Officials at Madonna's charity, Raising Malawi, distributed the items and other miniature Christmas cards signed by Madonna and children Lourdes and Rocco. The notes read: "Mercy, David, Rocco, Lourdes and I send you a blessed Christmas to all of you!" Also in the bales were new clothing and items that Madonna, Lourdes, Rocco and Mercy have outgrown and can no longer use, officials tell UsMagazine.com. Madonna also threw an open-air party at Consol Homes, an orphanage near Lilongwe, the town where she teaches a Kabbalah spirituality class to children. Over 1,000 people from the surrounding villages were invited to celebrate with the 2,500 orphans and underprivileged children. "Madonna says she always enjoys the traditional dances the villagers perform for her when she visits," Yacinta Chapomba, director of Consol Homes, tells Us. "She asked us to invite as many villagers as possible for the Christmas party." Source: Us Magazine

To all my dear friends on Icon Madonna!

My dear friends,  
First of all, I'm very sorry for  not have contacted you for so long!  
As some Iconers know, because I explained the situation to them, this year which ends, I dedicated to the full recovery of my health.  
It was the worst year of my life, although I don't enjoy exposing my situation - I like more, to share the good things that happen to me.  
I never get away from you, however, I have responded to all your posts, both at Icon, and Facebook. You know that.
I also imagine that you face many problems and that you like to keep them reserved and, some of you, also know why I distanced myself a little from Icon.
Well... I'm here primarily to wish all friends of Icon, an excellent year of 2011 filled with health, peace, love and much prosperity for your entire life. May all your wishes come true in the fullness and your spirit rises to the highest values of humanity.
Your friend forever, Oscar Casares

Pharrell on M

Pharrell confirm to be working with Madonna Again
New rumour apparently coming from The Herald Sun Australia (even though it’s nowhere to be found on the paper’s website)
Speaking from a Miami studio, Williams talks about his jam-packed calendar for 2011. “I’ve just been all over the place from project to project. Right now I’m working on lil’ Neptunes music. And there’s another Despicable Me. We’ve also got some stuff going on with Madonna.” The most-mentioned celebs in UK over the last decade
Madonna has been crowned the most talked-about celebrity of the noughties. She has had her name mentioned in UK print media more than any other star since 2000.
Brian Merron, of researcher Kantar Media, said: “This shows why she’s hailed as a legend.”
Decade’s top 10: 1 Madonna, 46,017.
2 Simon Cowell, 29,888.
3 Robbie Williams, 28,563.
4 Kate Moss, 28,056.
5 Britney Spears, 27,588.
6 Victoria Beckham, 25,833.
7 David Beckham, 24,953.
8 Michael Jackson, 24,688.
9 Paul McCartney, 21,556.
10. Kylie Minogue, 19,694. Ozzy Osbourne “Lady Gaga could be the next Madonna”
The metal legend and unlikely reality star sat down with Us Weekly to talk about Gaga being the next Madonna… “I do think Lady Gaga should take a break for a little while. She’s getting too much. And she doesn’t watch the the exposure of her clothes. She’s just too overexposed. She could be the next Madonna if she played her cards right.” Too Hot For MTV: Ten Controversial Music Videos That Got Banned Billboard made a chronological list of the 10 truly controversial videos deemed too hot for MTV (at least during daylight hours) — four by Madonna alone! Duran Duran, “Girls on Film” (1981)
A series of erotic vignettes, including suggestive pole dancing, pillow fights, sumo wrestling and one very oily massage, was more than enough to get Duran Duran’s breakthrough hit banned by the BBC, and that’s before anyone factored in full-on nudity (see the six-minute uncensored version here). Shot just weeks before the launch of MTV, the band savored the controversy, which didn’t just give them exposure, but anointed them music video pioneers. Mötley Crüe, “Girls, Girls, Girls” (1987)
Shot at the Seventh Veil Strip Club in Hollywood, Motley Crue’s raunchy tribute to bikes, babes and booze could have just as easily been titled “Boobs Boobs Boobs.” The video lap dance came as the band had reached its commercial peak, and while it was banned by MTV – for nudity, ‘natch – it did little to thwart album sales, which eventually topped four million. Madonna, “Like a Prayer” (1989)
Now regarded as groundbreaking, when “Like a Prayer” made its TV debut, the country let out a collective gasp. Using Catholic iconography to tell the story of a black man wrongly accused of murdering a child, Madonna bears witness to the injustice in the video, and is later shown kissing the Saint on the mouth. Critics of the clip insisted Madonna was locking lips with a black Jesus, and the ensuing controversy cost her a national Pepsi promotion — the commercial only aired once – but won her the MTV Viewer’s Choice Award that year. Madonna, “Justify My Love” (1990)
Never one to shy away from controversy, Madonna took MTV’s banning of her 1990 video for “Justify My Love” all the way to the bank, releasing it as the first-ever VHS video single (packaged in a plain black slip, to resemble other seedy videos). Racy even by Madonna’s standards, the video put sadomasochism, bisexuality and androgyny on full display, along with a host of explicit bedroom acts. The song did make its way onto broadcast, however, when ABC’s Nightline aired it along with a Madonna interview. Weeks later, it topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Garth Brooks, “The Thunder Rolls” (1991)
The country superstar used the music video for his 1991 hit “The Thunder Rolls” as a way to raise awareness to the growing problem of domestic violence. Deemed too graphic for CMT viewers, the network pulled it one day after its premiere, stating that the company was “in business to entertain, not to promote or condone gratuitous violence or social issues.” The controversy centered around one scene in which a husband comes home and beats his wife to a pulp while their daughter looks on, which is about as gratuitous as a hole in the head. Madonna, “Erotica” (1992)
MTV aired Madonna’s post-”Justify My Love” video “Erotica” a total of three times, after which it pulled the sexually charged clip. Featuring cameos by Naomi Campbell, Isabella Rossellini, and Big Daddy Kane, the star is undoubtedly Madge as a masked dominatrix, in what are essentially scenes played out from her 1992 book, Sex. A more explicit version, containing full-frontal nudity, was released in Europe and Australia. The Prodigy, Smack My ***CENSORED*** Up (1997)
With a title like “Smack My ***CENSORED*** Up,” it’s no surprise that The Prodigy’s breakthrough hit would anger feminists, but the video took shock value to the next level (see the uncensored version here). Playing out like a mini version of Trainspotting, the clip dives in for a close-up of the toilet, a sink with vomit, a seedy strip club, warts — and breasts — and all. Relegated to after-midnight viewing on MTV (preceded by a disclaimer), it didn’t hurt Prodigy’s showing at the VMAs that year — the band was nominated for four awards and won two, including Breakthrough Video. Enrique Iglesias, “Sad Eyes” (2000)
This rarely referenced early clip directed by David Lachapelle is as hot as the Latin heartthrob himself. Playing the part of a lonely pop star named, er, Enrique, it paints a picture of life on the road that includes picking up prostitutes, calling sex chat lines, pole climbing and lots of masturbation. The steamy video was promptly shelved, but has since been rediscovered online. Madonna, “What It Feels Like For a Girl” (2001)
Madonna as vigilante is the theme of this 2001 clip, directed by her then husband, filmmaker Guy Ritchie. Relegated to overnight play by MTV and VH1 due to its violent content, Madonna and an elderly accomplice launch into a massive crime spree in which they blow up a gas station, kill an innocent bystander and then commit suicide, all under the influence of pills and liquor. M.I.A., “Born Free” (2010)
In the YouTube era, M.I.A. carries the controversy flag with her ultra-violent video for “Born Free” (directed by Romain Gavras). Making reference to bloody rebellions like the Palestinian “Intifada” and the Irish Republican Army’s decades-long campaign, the nine-minute clip also shows S.W.A.T. teams shooting a young boy in the head, raiding an elderly couple’s bedroom mid-coitus and assaulting anyone and everyone who stands in their way. Removed temporarily by YouTube (it was later reposted with an age requirement), the war of words continued in the press, where the Sri Lanka-raised Maya found herself on the defensive.

White Christmas 4 U?

Are any of you expecting a White Christmas this year? They're predicting snow where I live, but not sure yet. I hear Europe is getting kicked badly this year with so much snow. A Lady Gaga show in Bercy, which was cancelled before because of the strike in Paris, now the show the other day was cancelled because her trucks were stuck because of the snow. She performed the next day I think.....she even tweeted she was stuck on her bus.   As for Madonna? I hear she's spending it in London with Guy....but I also heard she also was affected by the bad weather and got off a Virgin/Atlantic flight earlier than the other, regular people on there.... I hope she had a good Christmas with her family.   I wish all Iconers and Madonna fans all over the world PEACE AND JOY throughout the Holiday Season and throughout the New Year 2011.... Love and hope, Kel

Stalker Gets Backstage At Gaga Show

Lady Gaga stalker gets backstage at London show .slideImage { } Lady Gaga performs to a sell out crowd at the Odyssey Area in Belfast, Northern Ireland, Saturday, Oct. 30, 2010. (AP / Peter Morrison) Date: Wednesday Dec. 22, 2010 9:02 AM ET Lady Gaga was left "shaken" after a stalker got backstage at one of her shows. The 'Bad Romance' singer's team were forced to call police after a woman forced her way into the holding area of London's The 02 during her concert last Thursday and was found heading straight for the pop star's dressing room. An insider said: "Gaga was understandably shaken by the incident but was a consummate professional and continued as per normal, putting on a dazzling show." The obsessed fan - who was already known as a nuisance to the 24-year-old star's team - had gone to "great lengths" to get to Gaga and was found carrying forged backstage passes and laminates which helped her evade security measures. A security source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "This was a serious breach of security and the woman was heading in the direction of the stage and, more worryingly, Gaga's dressing room. "This woman has gone to great lengths to produce all the fake documentation so she could move at ease in the holding area backstage." The fan was detained by two members of security until police arrived to quiz her on site before letting her go. The incident is not the only time security was breached during the 'Alejandro' hitmaker's current tour. On Monday a fan reportedly grabbed her breast outside her hotel in Paris.

Madonna’s charitable donations in 2009
Of the nearly $2.9 million the singer donated to different causes, in 2009, through her Ray of Light Foundation, a vast proportion went to organisations with links with the Kabbalah movement.
She gave $2.25 million to Raising Malawi, $200,000 donation to Spirituality for Kids and $10,000 to the Jewish Big Brothers and Sisters scheme, a charity, based in Los Angeles, that runs mentoring programmes for Jewish children. Madonna given royal treatment on Virgin Atlantic flight
According to The Daily Mail, Madonna and her entourage were let off a Virgin Atlantic plane that was stuck on a snowy tarmac two hours before any of the other passengers.
The flight from New York was originally destined for London’s Heathrow Airport but instead it apparently landed at Stansted Airport due to bad weather, where the plane sat for about three hours.
According to other first-class passengers, Madonna and her associates were let off the plane first and were taken by bus to the terminal, said the story.
“As the plane was diverted to Stansted due to very difficult weather conditions, disembarkation was delayed while ground staff waited for buses to transport customers back to London Heathrow.
We apologize for any inconvenience this diversion caused, but for safety reasons this action was unavoidable.
It is common across airlines that business and first-class passengers disembark first and this is reflected in the higher cost of the ticket.” said a statement from Virgin Atlantic.
Still, no other first-class passengers were allowed off the flight for another two hours, though they were reportedly treated to a performance from the Queen of Pop herself, passengers told the Daily Mail. Jellybean sued over $10m worth of royalties
The Spirit One Music group has sued John “Jellybean” Benitez, for keeping 10 million dollars worth of royalties for Madonna’s 1983 hit “Holiday” away from them.
According to documents filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, Benitez and Spirit were to split royalties for the song, still popular after nearly 30 years, and Benitez was in charge of distributing the royalties between the two, reports the New York Post.
But the suit claims Benitez “repeatedly and unrepentantly misstated and underreported revenues due to its joint owner, Spirit,” and “repeatedly, systematically and intentionally made delinquent and tardy payments” to Spirit.
The suit says Benitez has “concocted flimsy, bad-faith excuses for its inaccuracy.”
Spirit wants 10 million dollars allegedly unpaid royalties, said Spirit’s lawyer, Wallace Collins.
However, reps for Benitez did not comment on the report.

Madonna, NYC, 1982 by Laura Levine

December 21st, 2010 Laura Levine contacted us at Madonnarama with quite an interesting time limited offer.
Here’s what she wrote… I’m releasing one of my favorite photographs – Madonna, NYC, 1982 – as a signed limited edition archival pigment ink print. Madonna and I did an extended portrait session in my Chinatown apartment back in 1982 for Andy Warhol’s Interview magazine. This was right before her debut album and first single (Everybody) were about to be released. She arrived by herself and we spent the next several hours shooting away. She was very professional, open-minded, and a terrific collaborator. Between now and the end of January I am pleased to offer this fine art print at a very special price to my friends and collectors. Madonna, NYC, 1982 by Laura Levine is available in three sizes: 8 x 10 inches – edition limited to 100 ($95. + 10 US shipping)
11 x 14 inches – edition limited to 75 ($200. +15 US shipping)
16 x 20 inches – edition limited to 50 ($350. +20 US shipping) Each archival pigment ink fine art print in this limited edition is printed on Cansone Platine Fibre Rag paper and is hand-signed and titled by the photographer in ink on the front. I’ve been working with a master printer whose work is exceptional and quite honestly you’d be hard pressed to tell the difference between one of these luscious archival prints and a traditional silver gelatin print. Please click here to place your order:
(International orders, please email us first for shipping rates.) This introductory offer is only for a limited time. After January 31, 2011, the print will be available at its regular price, which will be $250, $350. and $500. Gelatin silver prints are also available, starting at $1200. Please allow three weeks for delivery.

Tracy Young:

DJ Tracy Young has been remixing Madonna’s songs for many years.
According to the legend, while she was remixing at a millennium party attended by Madonna, the queen of pop was so impressed with her that she utilized her talents by asking Tracy to spin at her movie premiere for “The Next Best Thing” in New York, her CD release party for “Music” in LA, and even at she and Guy Ritchie’s wedding reception in Scotland.
She recently gave an interview to Miami New Times… Miami New Times : Who has been your favorite artist to work with?
DJ Tracy Young : It’s hard to pick a favorite. [but] I would have to say Madonna. She is someone I really admire, look up to musically and career-wise. Every choice Madonna has made is mind-blowing to me. Miami New Times : Was DJing her wedding a highlight of your career?
DJ Tracy Young : It was symbolic in some ways. I am in a field where you hear “No” a lot, especially because of my gender. So when Madonna and I started working together, it was like, “Yeah, I did it.” And her wedding was an honor to perform at because I felt like she trusted me [with] one of the biggest days of her life. I was completely honored and, to be honest, really nervous.

Snow, Flights and Yoga

With snow causing shutdowns at UK airports, passengers on a diverted Virgin Atlantic flight from New York are complaining, not about the weather but about special treatment given Madonna and her entourage. Flight VS010 was supposed to land at Heathrow, but was instead diverted to Standsted Airport, where passengers sat on the plane for nearly three hours -- except for Madonna, who was reportedly allowed to disembark two hours before everyone else. "After about an hour, a bus came along and took her and her party of about 15 off the plane. It seemed a little unfair, it's not like she is the President or anything. The rest of us all had to wait for another two hours," a disgruntled fellow passenger tells the UK'sDaily Mail. A statement from Virgin, obtained by AOL Travel News, says the plane was "diverted due to very difficult weather conditions" and the disembarkation was delayed by ground crew until buses arrived to take passengers to London's Heathrow. "We apologize for any inconvenience this diversion caused, but for safety reasons this action was unavoidable." As for Madonna's special treatment, Virgin says, "It is common across airlines that business- and first-class passengers disembark first and this is reflected in the higher cost of the ticket." An unidentified passenger, who was also in Virgin's Upper Class, says "Madonna was taken off the plane way before the rest of the first-class people. We were all grumbling about it." The passenger also complains the Queen of Pop used her hour-long delay to do yoga in the plane's aisles. Source:AOL/Daily Mail
