Madonna talks about her new fashion line

Madonna, the myth, the music
What with all her many talents and incarnations we could almost overlook Madonna's primary career as a musician. A career that is a triumph of style and substance as demonstrated by how skillfully she has taken on new music genres and new looks... all the while remaining true to herself and her best design allies.
While Madonna's music career has always been an everchanging affair (and has gone from strength to strength for that very reason) but some elements ha
Campaign exclusive: Madonna is the ultimate poster girl
A SWIDE EXCLUSIVE! Never-seen-before shots from Dolce & Gabbana's S/S 10 campaign with added backstage snaps; Madonna keeps surprising us, this time by inventing a new form of exercise. Housekeeping is the new yoga.

The windows of the Dolce & Gabbana flagship store in Via della Spiga have been tuned up for the new Spring/Summer 2010 campaign featuring Madonna, and four of her Steven Klein portraits are now capturing everyone's eyes in the Italian capital of fashion.

Madonna is set to take a new rap/rock direction on her next album.
The ‘Celebration’ singer is working with both rap producer A-Trak and rock producer Brendan O’Brien – who has previously worked with Pearl Jam – and attempting to merge the two genres on the follow up to her hip-hop influenced 2008 LP, ‘Hard Candy’.
A-Trak, real name Alain Macklovitch, told the Daily Star newspaper: “It’s my production, turned into song structure – halfway between rap and electronic and whatever else I listen to.

SIX DIRECTIONS FOR MADONNA’S NEXT ALBUM
Madonna is currently at work on a new album, which is expected to be unleashed some time in 2010. She has stayed relevant in the music business by constantly reinventing herself, taking in new genres and musical experiments and making them her own. She is meticulous about how she selects collaborators, because they inform the sound of the albums as much at Madge herself.
One of the confirmed producers working on the still-unnamed work is Brendan O’
WWD reports on the new Dolce & Gabbana campaign revealing that the designers' 18-year friendship with Madonna wasn't enough to ease the fears that Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce had about doing something "more business-y" with the pop icon explaining that they "were always afraid it would ruin our relationship". WWD mentions the format of the entire printed campaign, made by eight black-and-white, horizontal pictures shot by Steven Klein in a former lay convent in uptown Manhattan, add

Maripol comments on her photo of Madonna
Madonna photographed inside New York City’s Danceteria in 1983.“The picture is talking in a way. It’s saying ‘Look who I am. I’m not famous but I’m going to be.’ She didn’t drink much but she liked her Martini. I don’t think she smoked. Maybe I gave her the cigarette for attitude. I never saw Madonna smoking cigarettes as much as other people. She never did coke. That’s why she was Madonna, why she became as big as she did: because she was al

He's notched up two No.1 singles ('When Love Takes Over', 'Sexy ***CENSORED***'), seen his One Love album go gold, and produced a transatlantic chart-topper for Black Eyed Peas in the form of 'I Gotta Feeling'. Now he's taking on the role of ambassador for DJ Hero, a new game which allows us mere mortals to become superstar knob-twiddlers in our own right. Keen to find out more about his ace 2009, we called D
