Ethan Hawke Praises Madonna For Gypsies Support!

Actor Ethan Hawke on Saturday praised Madonna for her boldness in speaking out against discrimination against Gypsies, words that provoked boos from thousands of fans at her concert in Romania.

Hawke, visiting Romania to help promote his mother’s charity supporting education for Gypsy children, placed the pop superstar alongside Bob Marley and John Lennon as part of a tradition of artists speaking out against racism.

“She transcended being a pop star,” he told reporters. “She drew international attention and shone the spotlight on a level of racism and the need for greater education,” Hawke said.

At an August concert in Bucharest on her “Sticky & Sweet” tour, Madonna called for an end to widespread discrimination against Eastern Europe’s Gypsies, also known as Roma. Thousands of fans responded by booing her.

“I don’t have an agenda, Madonna doesn’t have an agenda. We aren’t politicians,” Hawke said.

Hawke, 38, was to speak later Saturday at the Ovidiu Rom charity Halloween ball. He and his mother, Leslie Hawke, the charity’s president, were already dressed in costume: the actor in top hat and tails and his mother in a Japanese-style kimono, black wig and geisha-like makeup.

Madonna Promises Power For Village!

Madonna has promised electricity to a village in Malawi, the impoverished southern African country where she runs a charity organization and from which she has adopted two children.
Speaking in Mphandula, some 50 kilometers (30 miles) from Malawi’s capital, Lilongwe, the singer said Thursday: “I know you work in darkness. I will bring you electricity.”
Madonna’s Raising Malawi charity already has donated $500,000 for a child care center in the village that feeds and educates 3,000 orphaned children.
Madonna arrived in Malawi on Sunday accompanied by her four children. On Monday she broke ground for her $15-million Raising Malawi Academy for Girls.

So there is no doubt that we are proud to present this exclusive video of “Into the Groove” from her Buenos Aires show before its world premiere on EPIX.

New Madonna Photo Book to Come Out Next Year!

We have heard more exciting news about a new project by Fabien Baron, the French art director that is currently the editor of Interview magazine.
Baron, who filmed the footage on the set of the SEX book that was used in the Erotica music video he directed and who shot the Erotica single cover and various other images of Madonna as Dita on the set of that same video, is putting together a Madonna photo book that will feature for the first time ever many unreleased photos of the Queen of Pop.
The book will include unreleased Madonna photos by many different photographers from all the eras in her carrer and is scheduled to be released sometime in 2010. Another great thing to look for next year!

The news is that lots of remixers have been contacted to remix the song and among them we find Tracy Young, David Guetta and Paul Van Dyke.But for die hard fans the most exciting news regarding her music is that for Christmas we'll also get brand new house remixes of two of her biggest classics: Holiday and Into The Groove!

Madonna Outtake

Madonna's "Celebration" Tops Euro Chart!

Madonna’s “Celebration” (Warner Bros.) overtakes Muse’s “The Resistance” (Helium 3/Warner Music) to debut at the top of Billboard’s European Top 100 Albums survey. There’s a fourth week as the European Hot 100 Singles No. 1 for “Sexy Chick” (Gum/Positiva/Virgin/EMI) by David Guetta featuring Akon.
The “Celebration” retrospective is new at No. 1 in the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, Ireland and Denmark, No. 2 in Spain, Portugal and Finland, No. 3 in Switzerland, No. 4 in Austria and No. 5 in Norway. The compilation’s 77,000 first-week U.K. sales give Madonna her 11th No. 1 album there (including 1996’s “Evita” soundtrack). That draws her level with Elvis Presley with the most U.K. chart-toppers of any solo artist, only behind the Beatles’ best total for any artist of 15.

Madonna: Do you have some cash on the side? Would you like to invest in me as a filmaker? Ryan: I would like to get closer to you, yes. Madonna: Ok, well... Ryan: What's the film? Madonna: It's called "We". It's a long story, it's like two parallel love stories, and it's told from a woman's point of view obviously.
