Sandra Bernhard: we really were Patsy and Edina
November 9th, 2010
Frienemies? Back in the day, Sandra Bernhard and Madonna were BFFs. Twenty years later, their friendship has dissolved. Bernhard went on The Wendy Williams Show and talked about the fall-out. We feel she kinda misses that AbFab friendship even though she uses cynism to cover it up.
Wendy Williams: Let’s talk about your old friendship with Madonna. Is that still an active friendship? Sandra Bernhard: (singin

“From Where I Stand” by Mary McCartney
November 5th, 2010
A few days ago, photographer Mary McCartney released a book titled “From Where I Stand.” The book reveals her best work from the 1990’s to date. Her photographs are decadent, often voyeuristic peep-ins, sprinkled with backstage and onstage depictions at fashion shows, rock concerts, the theatre, and the ballet; all stylistically represented in a visual narrative.
McCartney’s archive represents her friends, her family and her ido

You were so close. Rosie O’Donnell: Yeah, yeah. She’s doing well. She’s in England and directing and she’s got her kids and her life. And so do I. But,

Ricky Martin talks about Madonna on Oprah
November 3rd, 2010
Ricky Martin was on Oprah, today, and Madonna came up in the conversation…
Oprah: There was a time when – you describe in the book – Madonna comes up and she said to you “Stop doing interviews, because people already know who you are.” And you said it wasn’t until later that you really understood what she meant. What was it that you understood?
Ricky Martin: That you need to step out of the picture for a second and look at

02 November - Something to remember: All by myself Fifteen years ago, the video of one of Madonna's most ambivalent single releases premiered on MTV: November 2nd, 1995 saw You'll See debuting. By that time, Madonna was busy with the ambitious Evita project, working on the soundtrack in London. Perhaps that's the reason why it became Madonna's first ever sequel-video. Helmed by Michael Haussman once again, You'll See became the direct sequel to the Take A Bow video, which had just won a M

According to music/popular culture anthropologist Marc Andrews’ Twitter, Swedish House Mafia’s Sebastian Ingrosso could be involved in Madonna’s forthcoming music project… But it’s still very unsure…
The Swedish House Mafia is a group of three house DJs and producers: Axwell, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso. Ingrosso is ranked #25 in 2009 on DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJ list and has co-written and coproduced the track Cupid

The Holy Grail
Made in the U.K. circa 1992, this is considered to be one of the rarest and most sought after Madonna collectibles in the world. The story goes that Warner Bros. produced about 50,000 of these to promote her album Erotica, but then ordered all of them to be destroyed due to a scandal that had developed at the time involving tabloid photographs of Fergie sucking on someone's big toe. Warner Bros. didn't want to be seen as cashing in on a scandal involving royalty. After

Screen-Captures from Uli Edel's 1993 movie 'Body of Evidence'. The film is starring Madonna, Willem Dafoe, Joe Mantegna, Anne Archer and Julianne Moore. The film opened in US theaters on January 15, 1993 and was trashed by critics - as so often with films starring Madonna. The film obviously suffered from bad publicity and from a so-called Madonna overkill which happened in late 1992 / early 1993. Constant comparisons to the controversial thriller Basic Instinct didn't help much either. Madonn
