Short News!

The Prince and Madonna BS Story
The press is all about Prince and Madonna to have ended their supposedly decades-long feud. We can read everywhere that Madonna was among the celebrities cheering on Prince’s sold-out show at NYC’s Madison Square Garden.
We don’t believe a single word of it!
First of all, we believe that Madonna and Prince never feuded. In 2007, they huged at the Academy Awards after-party (see the pic) and Madonna mentioned Prince as one of her ultimate inspiration during the BET Interview to promote her Hard Candy album, in 2008.
Second, the press published pictures of Gossip Girl’s Leighton Meester and TV host Jimmy Fallon at the show, but not one paparazzi picture of Madonna entering or exiting the show. Tracy Anderson does it again
Madonna’s former trainer has slammed the Queen Of Pop for bulking up… “I reversed the years Madonna spent getting bulky and made her more feminine, but I think she’s going back the other way now.
You just have to look at any of the other women I work with and you can see that’s not what my method produces.
Will we ever be friends again? That’s a tough question. I don’t have rivals in life, it’s not who I am. I try to be a good person and I give a lot.
Some people appreciate that and use it for the right reasons, and some people take from it.
I’ve worked for over a decade to come up with something that’s my own work and my own invention and my own blood, sweat and tears.
I think that’s where the biggest sore spot is. I like to invent things and she likes to reinvent them!” Someone should tell Anderson that she only hurts herself by saying those things. We doubt many celebrities will agree to work with someone who can turn on them in the press, the second they part ways… Madonna on BBC Most Annoying Person List
Madonna is the 22nd Most Annoying Person of 2010 according to the BBC.
She’s blamed for using her daughter Lourdes as a prop.
Unbeliveable! American Idol searching for next Madonna
Randy Jackson says that this season American Idol needs to find the next Madonna or Michael Jackson – artists who have a transformative effect on artistry and culture. “I hope that ‘Idol’ finds a killer vocalist that helps to change music completely. Michael Jackson and Prince just slaughtered the business. Elvis slaughtered the business. I can’t remember a time when someone was that important in the history of the game of music. Madonna, Coldplay, U2, Jay-Z, Biggie and Tupac. No one has come in and changed the game, meaning that as soon as they showed up … everyone was dressing, acting and wanted to be them, full stop,” he said. “I hope that we find that quintessential star.” Taylor Momsen and Kelly Osbourne
Last week, Madonnarama exclusively confirmed that Kelly Osbourne was the new face of Madonna’s clothing line, Material Girl.
Now that it has been made official, Kelly Osbourne and Taylor Momsen share their thoughts on Twitter… Taylor Momsen:
Congrats to @MissKellyO for being the next Material Girl, it doesn’t get bigger than Madonna! U look beautiful! Kelly Osbourne:
@taylormomsen thank you i know I have some pretty big shoes to fill I will try my best!

Christopher Ciccone Talks Trash while doing his own promotion

January 26th, 2011 Madonna’s brother, Christopher Ciccone, has decided that he still wants to reunite with his sister… or maybe he’s only using Madonna’s fame to get media attention again! “The only contact I have had with my Madonna is via e-mail when I try to keep her updated about our family, but often she does not respond, and if she does it is through somebody else. It could take my grandmother’s passing for us to meet again, but one way or another I know it will happen. I’m praying that my grandmother makes it to 100, but I know she is frail now… she is a remarkable person who raised my brothers and sisters and is very important to our family. Look, I no longer get invited to all the same parties, and there are certain agents in Hollywood that won’t touch me, but I have no regrets and don’t really care about that stuff anyway. After I wrote Life With My Sister Madonna, the famous late Hollywood agent Ed Limato told me ‘I understand you now’ while I also think it has given my family a better understanding of me too. I’m not totally black-listed, and there are still plenty of people who will work with me still though. I’ve just formed The Ciccone Factory and I’m mentoring a number of exciting new artists including Erika Anderson and Ashe Wednesday. I’m energized again and just like ‘a gay Simon Cowell’ I intend to mentor these performers and use what I learned working with my sister to help get their careers established. I also have an erotic photography book coming-out in the summer called ***CENSORED*** Polaroids which I’m looking forward to promoting. Life has come full circle for me now and I certainly don’t have any regrets about writing my book – it help me with my own identity and to truly understand the relationship I had with my sister Madonna too.” A few days ago he also had some mean spirited things to say about Madonna, her younger boyfriends and Lady Gaga… “I guess if she continues to date all these much younger guys, it could start to look creepy, but I think that a lot of Madonna’s emotional needs are met by taking care of her children; these boyfriends must really be like a kind of distraction for her. She certainly isn’t following societal values, but then again my sister never has and probably never will either.
Lola has turned-out really well, and I’m sure her mother is very proud of her. Hopefully in time I can have the same relationship with Madonna’s children as I do with my other sister Melanie’s kids.
I can see a lot of my sister’s influence in what Lady Gaga is doing today. It’s like ‘Madonna on speed’ actually.
I think Lady Gaga is a great writer, singer and performance artist, but sometimes she goes too far with her costumes and persona and it must be hard for her fans to identify with that.
Madonna was a genius at changing her image into something that her fans could identify with and replicate if they wanted, and that’s something I’m trying to teach my own acts as I try to mentor their music careers.”

The Best Singles of the

Best Singles of the ’90s
Five Madonna singles are charted in Slant Magazine’s Best Singles Of The 90s. #42. Madonna, “Secret.”
Despite the common misconception that she often sings about sex, Madonna’s songs aren’t always sexy. “Secret” is perhaps the finest exception to that rule. As it slinks along a simple R&B backbeat and an unfussy acoustic guitar figure, “Secret” is also one of the most organic-sounding singles of Madonna’s career, taking its sweet time to get where it’s going and not giving up too much along the way. The arrangement gets off on being withholding, and, at least for one glorious single, so does Madonna: When she sings, “You knew all along/What I never wanted to say,” she sounds positively rapturous. JK #36. Madonna, “Deeper and Deeper.”
Among Madonna’s finest achievements, the angsty pop anthem “Deeper and Deeper” is both an acute distillation of Erotica’s smut-glam decadence and the singer’s lifelong blond ambition. The song, like its video, practically plays out as an autobiography of the singer’s life: Atop sambalicious disco, Madonna delivers a burning, poignant fairy tale of yearning and escape in which she plays both Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf. Armond White once praised Madonna for how she took “outsider art inside herself”—which is to say, justified it by personalizing it. The uncontrolled, fierce tension of the song derives from the feeling that Madonna is taking a plunge into some hedonistic abyss of her own liberated, uninhibited making. EG #34. Madonna, “Erotica.”
Madonna accepts the burden of her throaty, spent-from-touring voice, which makes Erotica’s taunting, aggressive lyrics—an elaborate exploration of sex, from seduction to disease—feel unmistakably honest. The title track, whose opening put-a-record-on scratchiness mirrors that of Madonna’s most divisive instrument, is the singer’s invitation to the dance, a slithering, sinister snake rising from a gaudily ornate chalice. The beats are, by design, hypnotic—at once alluring and devious. With “Erotica,” Madonna promises to get you off, but not without giving you something. EG #16. Madonna, “Ray of Light.”
Once the Material Girl made it her mission to bring electronica to the masses, she could have named her collaborator. Her decision to work with William Orbit shows that, for all the flack she’s faced for “appropriation,” her interest in underground dance music is deep and not wholly commercial. Madonna discovered techno just as she turned 40 and took up Kabbalah, and listening to “Ray of Light,” it’s easy to imagine Madonna finding in rave culture not just a new image, but a way of expressing her spiritual awakening. The beat is restless and Madonna sings breathlessly, but she exudes contentment: “I feel like I just got home!” Her emotional warmth is what establishes the song as a standout single even in a catalogue as replete with classics as Madonna’s. MC #10. Madonna, “Vogue.”
Much has been written (specifically on this site) about the cultural impact of the appropriation of queer and nonwhite motifs in Madonna’s “Vogue,” so I’ll focus instead on the song’s musical archaeology and influence. Lest I completely ignore its substance, Madonna’s message is clear (“Beauty is where you find it”), but the track’s origins are part and parcel with its star’s mining of gay club trends and Old Hollywood: Inspired by the Salsoul Orchestra’s “Ooh, I Love It (Love Break)” by way of Danny Krivit’s remix of MFSB’s “Love Is the Message,” the song has a family tree that even includes producer/DJ Shep Pettibone’s remix of Janet Jackson’s “Miss You Much” and serves as a sort of musical map of disco. Pettibone recorded “Vogue” with Madonna as a B-side for her single “Keep It Together,” making its impact all the more impressive (it would go on to inspire a glut of pop-house copycats) and begging the question: If disco died a decade earlier, what the ***CENSORED*** was this big, gay, fuscia drag-queen boa of a dance song sitting on top of the charts for a month for? SC Get the full list here… Katy Perry discusses Madonna and spirituality
According to the Telegraph, Katy Perry said… “For me, spirituality is something very important and I don’t like it when people take it lightly.
At times, I don’t understand why there are artists who play that card, like when Madonna gets up on a cross to sing.” Milan’s hotel to the stars
Milan’s most exclusive address is a palace fit for a celebrity, as Madonna, George Clooney and David Beckam can attest.
Website news.com.au explains… When Madonna stayed at the Hotel Principe di Savoia in Milan she brought with her about 40 staff members. She was in Milan for five nights on a concert tour. The 40-strong entourage did not include her band and back-up singers. They stayed elswhere. Somewhere a little less expensive, I can only presume. Madonna’s personal staff did, however, include a maid. Madge obviously didn’t want the Principe hotel staff to get their hands on her dirty laundry. Piers Morgan again and again… and again!
In the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly, Piers Morgan answers some questions about Madonna… once again! Entertainment Weekly: You banned Madonna from the show…
Piers Morgan: It can only be rescinded if she makes a formal apology. For all the grief she’s caused me by being Madonna.
Entertainment Weekly: She says she doesn’t know who you are. Let’s keep this going. Your turn.
Piers Morgan: I was interested to see she doesn’t know who I am because Madonna and I have been feuding for 25 years… When I watched her in the days of “Holiday,” nothing was sexier than Madonna. Watching Madonna at 52 going out with 22-year-old kids called Jesus and stripping her clothes off for magazines, it’s like, Please, it’s over. We have a new one, it’s called Lady Gaga. He also gave an interview to The Daily Mail and mentioned the feud once again… “My decision to unilaterally ban Madonna from my new CNN show – on the grounds that she is far more boring and considerably less talented than her new, young doppelganger Lady Gaga – has continued to attract considerable attention in America. So I decided to put my theory to the test on national TV tonight. During an appearance on Chelsea Lately – Chelsea Handler is a wild, crazy, hilarious blonde who hosts a comedy talk show – I asked the studio audience how many of them would rather I interviewed Madonna over Gaga, and not a single person put their hand up or uttered a word. Just total dismissive delicious silence. Then I reversed the question and they all burst into loud cheering. Madonna obviously thought she was being very clever by reacting to my ban by saying she’d never heard of me. But when she sees the clip of that audience, she’s going to realise that there may be a rather unsettling truth to my assertion that she is yesterday’s news.” UK top role models
A nationwide study of more than 1,200 boys from the UK, and their parents found 14% think Madonna is a role model.

Tracy Anderson on Madonna

Tracy Anderson is in the process of rolling out her own international gym chains in association with Gwyneth Paltrow and the head of Madonna’s Raising Malawi charity, Philippe van den Bossche .
At 35, she already has three North American studios. Next step is London.
Anderson gave an interview to This is London and when she got down to the question of Madonna’s Hard Candy centers, here’s what she had to say… “Expanding all over really fast is to me a bit unethical.
Gwyneth and I are really taking our time on doing it right so that each place has integrity.
It’s like… I pride myself on inventing some new things.
She is the queen of reinvention. I spent three years teaching her…
I have shallow feelings for anyone who is not an expert in the field doing something on the back of their celebrity.”

The W.E. controversy

uary 17th, 2011 In Madonna‘s upcoming film, W.E. history is going to take a back seat to fantasy. According to 29 year old british actress Andrea Riseborough, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor were not Nazi sympathizers–even though they visited the Third Reich, appeared in a newsreel with them, and are well documented historically to have made some horrendous social and political choices. As well, the Duchess of Windsor–Wallis Simpson–did not cheat on the Duke. And the Duke–formerly King Edward VIII–was brilliant. Riseborough, who plays Wallis in “W.E.,” told website showbiz411 that people got it all wrong… “Do you know how many people visited the Nazis?
Everyone was enthralled with them.
The Duke and Duchess were just two of lots of people, and shouldn’t be thought of badly.” Also, W.E.’s back story is going to be that Edward was the brilliant brother, and that Bertie – King George – wasn’t much. Riseborough also tells that in the film, her character – Wallis Simpson – will have some fantastical cross-generational meetings in person with a modern character called Wally, played by Abbie Cornish. The film, all done and now being edited, will probably be sent to the Cannes Film Festival for possible inclusion.

Business Deals & Boyfriends, Newspapers & Polls, Designer & Maestro, and more

Madonna to become nightclub owner?… Liz says no!
According to English newspaper, Telegraph, Madonna has held talks with the Malaysian tycoon Tony Fernandes about investing in his Aura Mayfair nightclubs.
The rumour is already all over the net, while Liz Rosenberg denies it:
“A rep for Madonna tells Gossip Cop that stories about the singer buying into the club business are totally untrue.” SPIN Magazine 25th Anniversary Readers Poll
SPIN Magazine just celebrated its 25th anniversary by doing a readers poll.
Madonna is up there right where she should be… #1 – Best Solo Artist: Madonna (32,3%)
#1 – Hottest Sex Goddess: Madonna (25,4%)
#2 – Best Song: “Like a Prayer”, Madonna (19,8%)
#3 – Best Live Act: Madonna (11,8%) A few words for Madonna…
Madonna and her love-life are featured on the Dear Debbie problem page in the National Enquirer. Hollywood actress Debbie Reynolds hands out advice each week, in her “Dear Debbi: Got a problem? I want to help” column, to a celebrity that is in the news…
A few words for Madonna… Madonna, 52, has a new toyboy lover, 24-year old French backup dancer Brahim Zaibat, and her dad Tony Ciccone is not happy about it at all! In fact, he’s announced that “enough is enough” and has told her Brahim is not welcome in his house, according to sources.
Madonna has had differences with her dad for many hears. The time for him to be critical of her male friends was when she was 12, not now. And if Madonna were a 52-year-old man with a 20-something girlfriend, it’s doubtful that anyone would be saying “enough is enough.” Madonna is known to be a loving mother and this fling is hardly the most outrageous thing she’s done in her life. I think her dad is overreacting and needs to back off. At this stage, Madonna’s new beau is not an embarrassment, he’s just her latest fun project. Jesus Luz ensures Madonna and he are still going strong
DJ Jesus Luz gave an exclusive interview to Revista Caras. He explained… “Nothing has changed…
I’ve always been able to tell apart the woman from the myth. It’s more like it since we’ve met. I was not dumbfounded, staring at her and stuck for words.
Of course I have admired her, but not really changed my way of acting. I can see her as my girlfriend, without the label of star. She is a person like any other.
At the beginning of the relationship, there was too much attention focused on me, people treating me differently…
That freaks you out and wakes up a self- centered side in us. I have had moments when looking in the mirror and seeing myself as ‘the hot stuff’.
Now I’ve built my new family in Manhattan and all of us get along quite well.” Thanks to Rodrigo Maestro and the Madonna
German conductor Christian Thielemann has told the Berliner Morgenpost that he’d like to spend some time with Madonna… “I find this woman fascinating.
Not just musically…. I’d like to get to know Madonna a whole lot better.” Tracy Anderson Release Workout DVD
Tracy Anderson who is a famous workout and fitness trainer, who is mostly famed as the fitness guru of Madonna, has just released her workout DVD titled “The Tracy Anderson Method Presents: Mat Workout DVD”. According to her website, the new DVD is loaded with her amazing fitness advice, focused on sculpting and definition of body, which is based on 11 years of research. Once Again Piers Morgan says he’s irritated by Madonna
On Thursday, Piers Morgan revealed that the first guest that will sit down for an interview on his new CNN show, Piers Morgan Tonight, will be Oprah Winfrey.
He also mentioned Madonna once again… “She’s kind of been an irritant in my life for 20 years, so I’ve banned her from the show.
It’s probably quite childish. Make the apology on CNN. Other than that, it’s a lifetime ban.
Lady Gaga’s half her age, twice as good looking, twice as talented and twice as hot, so why would I bother with Madonna.” Morgan is apparently still peeved at Madonna for all the legal mumbo jumbo “her people” took him through during his stint as editor of Britain’s notorious News of the World tabloid. New book on Anna Sui Mentions Madonna
A book on American fashion designer Anna Sui which, she says, is an autobiography in pictures, mentions Madonna. Sui was there with Madonna when she wore a sheer black babydoll at the Gaultier show, linked by mutual friend and top photographer Steven Meisel.
“She came out with a coat on, and I couldn’t wait to see what she was wearing. I thought it would be some outrageous outfit, and then she said, ‘Anna, I have a surprise for you.’”
Madonna also wore Sui when she was photographed by Meisel in 1992 for Vogue. The Blond Ambition Shoes
Kobi Levi designed a brand new shoe called ‘Blond Ambition’ getting his inspiration from Madonna’s (in)famous 1990′s World Tour…



a Mini-Madonna in Toddlers & Tiaras
The last episode of “Toddlers & Tiaras,” airing on US channel TLC, included a Madonna reference, when Mia, 2, transformed from an angel – to a mini-Madonna!
Joel McHale made a delightful totally inapropriate comment during “The Soup” saying…
“She was going to dance to “Like a Virgin” but no believed the “Virgin” part.
I can’t believe I made that joke.” The 250 best albums of Q’s lifetime
Q Magazine listed The 250 best albums of Q’s lifetime (1986-2011) and we must admit this chart is a total mess.
Only 2 Madonna albums in it (at #175 and #214), while Lady Gaga’s first effort, The Fame is charted at #40, surpassing the likes of Madonna or George Michael’s whole career, but also most of Prince’s or Michael Jackson music and many many more… 214: Like a Prayer
Madonna at her most Earth-conquering and musically fearless. 175: Ray of Light
Still her best work to date, Ray of Light was also Madonna’s smartest career move; combining traditional pop hooks with up-to-the-second dance music. Thirty-nine years young, it made her a next-generation pop star.
Key Track: Ray of Light In a storied career as am music journalist, I’ve played darts with Cher, carried Bono’s ghetto-blaster, and asked the tiny one out of Kasabian to “run along – can’t you see I’m trying to talk to Kasabian?” But does anyone want to hear this stuff? Do they ***CENSORED***? They want to know about the Christmas pudding I gave Madonna.
It was Christmas 1997. I was interviewing Madonna for Q, as she unveiled Ray of Light, and I’d noted a Times interview where the writer was advised to take her a present. This had struck me as shockingly craven, ingratiating and… not a bad idea at all.
Madonna, then 39, was deep in a touchy-fely phase shaped by 14 months of motherhood, emotional stocktaking and mix’n'match religion, but she was as she always is, a tough nut. So I can only assume it was my gift of a Harrods’ Christmas pud that spared me a karate chop when, our interview still in the sparring stage, I described Carlos Leon (daughter Lourdes’s bio-dad) as an alleged “spunk donor”. A week after Christmas, Madonna rang me at home to clarify one or two points. Match Of The Day was on, and my missus answered the phone. “It’s that Madonna for you,” she announced. As the fame-fuelled madness of her life was further reviewed, Madonna sighed: “I guess I won. But it’s not terribly much fun, being a rebel or a pioneer.” At the mention of the pudding, however, she brightened. “It was delicious,” she purred.
And – I reflect as I dine out on it for the trillionth time – worth every penny. Vote for the Queen of Pop…
German-Franco culture TV channel ARTE requests fans to vote for the ultimate Queen of Pop!

Avril Lavigne wants to do it like Madonna

Avril Lavigne has revealed that she hopes to emulate Madonna’s music career. The singer, who is gearing up for the release of her fourth studio album Goodbye Lullaby, told the Daily Record that she wants to follow a similar path to Madonna, who has released 11 albums in her 27-year career. “I definitely can see myself still being out there in 20 years’ time.
I want to be around the way Madonna has done it. She’s had her life but still maintained her career throughout.
Well, it’s like you go away and you come back. I put out a record, I’m around doing a million things and then I shut up and go away.
I think it’s good to change but it’s better if it’s a natural progression rather than being forced.”

Vanilla Ice:

January 9th, 2011 Vanilla Ice has revealed to the News of the World that he dated Madonna when he was 24-years-old and she was 33.
The A-hole ex-rapper admitted that it was “exciting” to have a relationship with an older woman, but said he ended it when she published her Sex book… “Going out with Madonna was exciting.
She was older than me and a great lover. She’s still the oldest person I’ve ever been with, so it was an experience.
But I broke up with her after she printed that book because I was hurt to be an unwitting part of this slutty package. It was disgusting and cheap. We were in a relationship yet it looked like she was screwing all these other people.
I thought she was taking pictures and running round naked because she was like that. Then when the book came out I was so embarrassed and ashamed. It was a porno. She threw me in like I was a product off a shelf and I didn’t appreciate it. That was it and I ended it. She said she didn’t have sex with these men but it looked like she was.”

Madonna's Security Teams Help Police With Investigation

Madonna has been embroiled in a police investigation after a suspected thief plunged 100 feet (30 metres) from an apartment block and landed by the back door of the star's London home on Friday afternoon.
The Holiday hitmaker's $15 million (£10 million) Marylebone property was surrounded by cops after a man being chased by officials attempted to climb out of a window in the block next to Madonna's property.
He fell into a communal parking area just a few feet from the star's door and was admitted to a central London hospital, where he is said to be in a critical condition.
Metropolitan Police officers have referred the case to officials at the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC), who will allegedly review footage from Madonna’s CCTV cameras, which are thought to have captured the horror on film, according to Britain's Mail on Sunday.
Madonna's head of security tells the publication, 'We have given the police everything they need. I can't say if it was CCTV film. I also can't say if Madonna was here at the time of the accident.'
The singer was in the U.K. capital on Thursday and was seen partying at Aura nightclub with her new boyfriend Brahim Zaibat, before leaving the venue in the early hours of Friday morning. From contactmusic.com
