BELLA MADONNA

Jeremy thought to share this HQ scan of the highly collectable UK magazine "Company" to celebrate the anniversary of its June 1985, which is excactly 25 years ago!  "Company" featured a now-vintage portrait of the soon-to-be Queen of Pop by Brian Aris that year and was also one of the first glossy thick magazines to put her on the cover. Most of her previously early cover magazines were stapled issues and this one is not stapled.  Click to zoom. Thanks to Jeremy from Arnhem, Holland.

''It's not my fault that I look like her''

"We're compared to each other, whether we're blonde, brunette, black, white, straight, gay. But on another level, it's kind of funny, because my mother actually looks sort of like Madonna. And the older I've gotten, I look more and more like my mother. So sometimes I just want to say, it's not my fault that I look like her."  Lady Gaga, explaining to talk show host Larry King that the neverending Madonna comparison is just genetics.  From an article by BangShowbiz.

David Guetta was unlucky with Madonna

David Guetta has suggested that record label issues may prevent the release of his collaboration with Madonna. The DJ and producer confirmed to The Guardian that he and Madonna recently wrote and recorded a track together. Guetta said: "It's a tricky situation, because she's now out of a record deal. We don't even know what's going to happen with it. It's a huge record, so it's really frustrating. "The track is part of the Warner deal, but it's not on the album, so why would they invest any mo

With incredible joy, I am writing to share with you that Malawi President Bingu wa Mutharika has ordered their release. Steven and Tiwonge were freed on Saturday night.

Here's a nice look at the Russian edition of the Sticky & Sweet Tour CD + DVD. As you can see by the images below courtesy of MadonnaTribe's longtime correspondent Rinat, the release for the Russian market comes out with a regular jewel box case instead of the digipack available in the rest of the world.  Artwork and booklet are virtually unchanged apart from the obvious necessary format adjustment and small print notes, plus the CD+DVD also comes wrapped with a nice "obi-style" band which

CLIPPINGS FOR FRANCE

When news in Madonna's camp are a bit slow even a simple change of look between a tv appearance and the Carnival in Rio seems to be worth spending some ink... at least from what you see in this snippet from the May 20 issue of French magazine "Envy".  Click on the image to enlarge the scan courtesy of M-Tribe friend and contributorMaurice from Paris, France.

Madonna picks up the bill

Madonnamay be pop royalty but she’s no diva when it comes to partying.  When she hit the trendy Aura nightclub in London last Thursday I hear she insisted on picking up the £20,000 bar tab for her dancers.  A club insider told me: "It's unheard of for a big star to offer to pay when they normally get nights out free."  "All she asked was that none of her own songs would be played, there were to be no sparklers with her drinks and no paps when she arrived."  I spent a good 20 minutes within 2ft

Madonna and Marlene strike a pose

A rare picture of Madonna striking a pose in her "Vogue" outfit with costume designer Marlene Stewart can be found on the Spring 2010 issue of The Costume Designer magazine.  It is worth noticing that the magazine mentions that the pic was taken backstage at theAmerican Music Awards in year 1991, while instead the image is much likely to be from the MTV Video Music Awards the year before.  At the 1990 MTV Video Music Awards Madonna performed "Vogue" in her glorious Marie Antoinette rendition a

Right to love and be loved: Add Your Name to Madonna's Statement

Dear friends,  Steven Monjeza and Tiwonge Chimbalanga will spend the next 14 years in a Malawi jail, sentenced to hard labor.  They aren't murderers. They didn't steal. In fact, they didn't commit a crime.  They were convicted of homosexuality.  I call upon the progressive men and women of Malawi -- and around the world -- to challenge this decision in the name of human dignity and equal rights for all.  Please add your name to mine in a pledge of support for the freedom to love:  www.rais

''Challenge This Decision In The Name Of Human Dignity''

Madonna's official statement on the imprisonment of a gay couple in Malawi."I am shocked and saddened by the decision made today by the Malawian court, which sentenced two innocent men to prison. As a matter of principle, I believe in equal rights for all people, no matter what their gender, race, color, religion, or sexual orientation. Today, Malawi took a giant step backward. The world is filled with pain and suffering; therefore, we must support our basic human right to love and be loved.

Madonna has found her Duchess

Madonna has found her Duchess of Windsor - and it's all thanks to Margaret Thatcher.The singer has injected some energy into her once troubled filmW.E., about Edward VIII's abdication crisis and the so-called romance of the century between Edward and twice-divorced Wallis Simpson, by casting rising star Andrea Riseborough, who portrayed the young Mrs Thatcher in BBC drama The Long Walk To Finchley, as Mrs Simpson, who later became the Duchess of Windsor.

I Am Because We (C)are...

Simply Madonna Down Under

MadonnaTribe reader and contributor Pishpose was lucky enough to be in Perth, Western Australia where the "Simply Madonna" exhibition was on display.  "Simply Madonna" has been seen so far only in London and Melbourne," he writes. "Australian music guru Molly Meldrum added his own touch to the exhibition loaning a framed gift of CD's given to him by Madonna."  Check out a gallery of 26 images from the exhibition at Enex100 in Perth - which shocased a limited number of items but certainly got a
