Madonna Shows Her Masculine Side
At the Diane von Furstenberg & Claridge Launch Party in London on Wednesday, Madonna showed up in a black two piece suit, fedora and pinstripe button-down. Her masculine female approach was pulled off flawlessly, but it’s probably because this trend isn’t new to the icon. In the 80’s, Madonna sported a similar look in her music video for “Express Yourself.”
It’s always great seeing women in such empowering silhouettes, especially when they go all out like M
Madonna launches clothing line for girls
Is Madonna too cool - or not cool enough - for school?
That’s the question teen girls will decide when shopping the pop icon’s debut clothing line this summer.
The Material Girl collection, a design collaboration with Madonna and daughter Lola, will hit Macy’s in August. But sketches released yesterday give a first glimpse into how Madge thinks girls should express themselves.
The line, so says the press release, is intended for the “spontaneous and f

Simon is going to leave a gaping hole. Not only is he an expert, he's also a big star in the States," a source told the U.K.'s The Sun newspaper in a Tuesday report.

Madonna at work: Another day at the office as singer strips off for photoshoot
There aren't many 51-year-olds who would be happy stripping down to their underwear in front of an audience. Let alone striking a provocative pose with a younger man.
But after years of outrageous outfits it was just another day at the office for Madonna.
The singer was surrounded by a team of helpers as she shot the advertising shots for her new MDG sunglasses collection.

A MADONNA'S EMAIL
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: http://www

Kylie Minogue has been known to tear a page out of Madonna's book, but now it looks like she's even borrowing a look from her closet, donning Gaultier's famous conical bra (which first appeared on Madonna in 1990) in a promotional shot for her new album, Aphrodite.
The 41-year-old looks just as sexy as Madonna did when she wore the slightly more scandalous version at 32.
Course, it looks as if she's had plenty of help from a little friend called "Photoshop!"
Still love her, though!

Lady Gaga does a Madonna after collecting seven music gongs
Lady Gaga was awarded with seven Echo music awards in Berlin but she looked more like she was taking part in a wacky Madonna lookalike contest.
The Poker Face singer attended the Platinum Award Ceremony in Germany where she was given seven music gongs – so many she could barely carry just two of them.
Lady Gaga collected an armful of trophies in Germany
Later that day she then performed a concert for her fans looking eerily like
Like M.I.A., Joanna Newsom isn't buying into the Lady Gaga hype. In a recent article in The Guardian, the indie singer-songwriter-harpist had some choice words for the world's most fashion-forward pop star: "I'm mystified by the laziness of people looking at how she presents herself, and somehow assuming that implies there's a high level of intelligence in the songwriting. Her approach to image is really interesting, but you listen to the music, and you just hear glow sticks. Smart outlets for m
Madonna plants 'thousands' of hedges at horse ranch
Madonna has planted thousands of hedges at her summer horse ranch - to keep prying eyes away, it has been claimed.
The Material Girl is said to have demanded more privacy at the property in the posh Hamptons resort on New York's Long Island, so gardeners have been hard at work planting.
Neighbour Benny Graboski estimated that "a couple of thousand" hedges - each about eight to 10 feet tall - had been put into the ground.
