Herman: Apparently you’ve "changed your mind" about family. What do you want now?
Madonna: There was a great longing in me to find myself. Throwing myself into the entertainment world was like a journey. I was looking for a certain kind of fulfillment. And while it was a great and fulfilling experience to know that people loved me for what I was giving them, there is nothing that compares to one true act of love or intimacy with someone you truly reveal yourself to, whether that’s my daughter o
Jesus, it’s Madonna. She’s got new hair and loads of religion, she knows what ketamine is and the hippest DJ’s in the world think her new record is swell. “You guys are still taking ecstasy?” she enquires of pharmaceutically retarded Danny Eccleston.
According to the ever-reliable Sunday People, Madonna throws one hell of a dinner party. Foie Gras, it seems, is for the plebs. Pre-natally engorged veal is off the menu. Lark’s tongues, otter’s noses – the comestible exotica of the merely-rich and
Like a Virgin is the second studio album by American singer-songwriter Madonna, released on November 12, 1984 by Sire Records. The album was re-released in 1985 world wide (not in North America) with the bonus track "Into the Groove".

"Justify My Love" is the first single by American singer-songwriter Madonna from her 1990 greatest hits compilation The Immaculate Collection and was released on November 6, 1990, by Sire Records. It caused international controversy due to the accompanying music video which was sexually explicit and even banned by MTV. This outraged Madonna and she appeared on ABC's Nightline to defend it. The single was also released as a video-single and became the highest selling video single of all-time.
I'm talking, I'm talking
I believe in the power of love
I'm singing, I'm singing
I believe that you can rescue me
With you I'm not a little girl, with you I'm not a man
When all the hurt inside of me comes out, you understand
You see that I'm ferocious, you see that I am weak
You see that I am silly, and pretentious and a freak
But I don't feel too strange for you
Don't know exactly what you do
I think when love is pure you try
To understand the reasons why
And I prefer

Visitors to Madonna’s $6.5 million Beverly Hills mansion on a recent afternoon could stroll through and behold masterworks by Picasso. Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo and … raident artist Lourdes Leon, age 6. Alas, Lourdes belongs to the enfant terrible school of art, which has her famous mom clenching her teeth in frustration. “My daughter spilled apint paint on the bedroom rug,” says a stressed Madonna. ‘We’re not really sure how it happened. She was left alone for two minutes, and, well, it’s not p
She made it through the wilderness, all right. And she’s remained at the center of global pop culture ever since. The mother of reinvention talks about her art, her husbands and her early years as "an ego-driven nutcase."
It doesn’t really matter whether you buy the transformation of the world’s onetime reigning sex kitten — okay, lioness — into a New Age Mother Theresa determined to bring a ray of light into your spiritually parched life. It doesn’t matter at all.
Because she believes it arde
Gather round! Madonna has something to tell you. Prepare for a full briefing on global conflict, life after death and Mini Cooper.
Madonna arrives on time, looking as inconspicuous as the most famous woman in the world can. She is dressed down in chocolate brown and charcoal, with a tweed cap pulled low down over her eyes.
"Hi, I’m Madonna," she says, as she squeezes, with some inelegance, into our corner booth. Heads do not turn as readily as they might, thanks to her newly brunette hair.
I stand outside the backdoor of our 1970s colonial: green aluminum siding, a two car garage, and a massive oak tree out back. Mom and Dad aren’t home so I take my very first cigarette from my pocket – it’s a Kool. I light it, inhale its mentholated smoke, and am not sure whether to faint or vomit. I know that I am on the verge of middle class cool. As I fight the urge to up-chuck the bologna sandwich I had for lunch, I see a jet plane streak across the blue sky. Thoughts of local cool fall from
Looking very much the young married couple, Madonna and her husband, the English filmmaker Guy Ritchie, sat on a sofa in their central London home one recent afternoon to talk about Mr. Ritchie’s new movie, “Swept Away,” which stars his wife.
In this remake of Lina Wertmüller’s 1974 Italian-language sex-and-sand movie, “Swept Away . . . by an Unusual Destiny in the Blue Sea of August,” Mr. Ritchie has cast Madonna as Amber, a rich, arrogant American shipwrecked on a deserted Mediterranean islan
Inspired by motherhood, Hinduism, yoga and a "dwindling" English dance producer, the world’s most successful female singer set about reinventing herself. Armed with a "gaffer-taped" Atari and with her baby daughter manning the mixing desk, Madonna made Ray Of Light.
The mid-’90s showered material girl Madonna with a string of life-changing experiences, from the birth of her daughter to an awakening of interest in Eastern mysticism. Then, in May 1997, following the Evita soundtrack, she started
Regan Cameron knew the most crucial moment of the most crucial photo session of his young career was about to hapen. In front of him was no less a personage than Madonna, the icon immortalized in images by the likes of Herb Ritts and Steven Meisel. Now it was his turn, and he was feeling the pressure. “It was certainly the biggest celebrity I’d shot yet,” says Cameron. He’d received the assignment to shoot Madonna last fall from InStyle magazine, and now they were standing in the SmashBox studio
Soon to tour for the first time in eight years, she’s ready to take on the world.
[The telephone rings.]
Madonna: Hi, Ingrid. How are you?
Ingrid: Good. How are you?
Madonna: Fine, thank you. Long time no talk.
Ingrid: I know. But before we say anything, I have to ask you something. Are you connected to the phone, or is it loose?
Madonna: Am I connected to the phone?
Ingrid: In other words does it have a wire that goes into the wall?
Madonna: Oh yeah, yeah. I can’t stand
With Music, Guy Ritchie, and motherhood, Madonna has reinvented herself again. and has always, it’s ok to adore her. Just ask. Equipment Manifest:
1. Three Sony TCM-313 tape recorders. 2. Six 90-minute HF Sony tapes. 3. Extra AA Energizer Advanced Formula batteries. 4. One Canon ZR10 digital camcorder, loaded. 5. Extra batteries for that.
6. One notebook. 7. One CIA spy pen that writes in zero gravity, upside down, underwater, over grease, and in all weather conditions. 8. Four Sharpie
The driveway leading up to Madonna’s Mediterranean-style house is long enough to make the walk for the morning newspaper pass for exercise. But the arduous climb has its rewards. Just inside the glass-and-iron front door, there are two Frida Kahlo paintings. Nearby, on a table, is a breast pump and a stack of magazines. Turn right, and you walk down a hallway lined with many black-and-white photographs. There’s a step down into the spacious, sun-filled living room and a Diego Rivera oil hanging
Madonna is hot. The city of Los Angeles is baking in a late-July heat wave, and the very pregnant pop icon’s home does not yet have air conditioning.
"I feel like a walking furnace," she says with a weary giggle. "None of my friends will come over and stand in front of the fans with me."
Save for the wilting temperature, the venerable artist is in high spirits. She’s weeks away from giving birth – in more ways than one. And while delivering "Music," her first studio collection since 1998’s lau
Madonna insisted on wearing a bullet proof vest during her visit to a Rio de Janeiro slum even as she was accompanied by a squad of bodyguards.
The state governor also gave company to the 51-year-old hitmaker, reports the Daily Express.

Boy toy. Pop tart. Diva. Cultural icon. Sexual revolutionary. Living legend. Good girl. Bad girl.
A lot of labels have attached themselves to Madonna, but none has sparked more curiosity than her latest: Mom. When Madonna gave birth to her daughter, Lourdes Maria Ciccone Leon, on October 14, 1996, the news generated international headlines. Had any other woman ever produced
With the sexcapades, scandals and wild times behind her, pop’s former boy toy tackles the roles of adoring mother and mature woman in love – by Jim Jerome
This is Lola,” Madonna announces as Lourdes Maria Ciccone Leon bounds into the sitting room of her mother’s four-story mansion, a reported $ 15,000-a-month rented home in Kensington, London, where the singer is currently recording her 13th album. “No,” the wide-eyed 3-year-old declares. “I’m an alien.” Madonna scoops up Lourdes (whom she alwa
Let history record that exactly 33 hours before the end of civilization, Madonna remains firmly in charge.
It is three P.M. on December 30, 1999, an unseasonably cool day in South Beach, the unreasonably cool section of Miami Beach. All day long, news trucks have been negotiating the crowded streets, trolling for signs of impending doom, and policemen, wearing tight smiles, have been arranging barricades and assuring German tourists that everything is under control,’ a television in an open-air
I met Madonna in 1990, quite by chance, when a friend took me to a party in Los Angeles. Upon entering the house, I was suddenly surrounded by stars, and the only person I didn’t recognize was me. I searched the room for my friend who had seemingly been sucked into the celestial vortex, never to be seen again. Seated on a couch nervously pulling my wayward dress closer to my knees, I surveyed the land: Michelle Pfeiffer here, Jack Nicholson there, Al Pacino, Andy Garcia. Was there no end to this
TV WEEK – Were you responsible for choosing Amercian Pie for this film?
MADONNA – No, I wasn’t. At the start of TNBT a character dies, and Rupert wanted the song to be included and for the characters too sing it in protest against the family and how uptight they are. It was also Rupert who said “You should do a cover of it”. At first I was like, “no way”. I loved the song when I was growing up, but it never occured for me [to cover it]. Also the lenght of the original song is eight minutes and
Interviewing Madonna – whether it be an invigorating round table discussion or during a one-on-one wet dream interview come true – is an event.
During a recent Q & A, the chanteuse’s latest film role was examined. Throughout it one could not help but wonder which role Madonna herself feels best suited. Is she: A] an icon; B] an entertainer; C] a mother; D] all of the above?
Before you answer this question, remember that Madonna is undoubtedly the most iconographic personality in the world.
Thirty-nine-year old Madonna Louise Ciccone could easily have hacked out an album of Babs-and-Celine-style schmaltz and laughed all the way to the ashram. Instead, says Barry Walters, she delivered Ray Of Light, the riskiest, most revealing record of her career.
When a musician rooted in an underground sensibility achieves massive success, she has three options: She can stick to what she knows until the public grows bored and inspiration dries up, she can maintain her popularity by sucking up t
