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.

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.

this Friday (Oct. 30)
Millions of Madonna fans – 3.5 million at 85 shows in 32 countries, to be exact – were lucky enough to witness the pop megastar’s record-breaking“Sticky & Sweet Tour” live before it wrapped in September. But there are still millions more who never saw the show, which until now, hasn’t been broadcast for fans in US. 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.

THE NEW DOLCE AND GABBANA MADONNA MENS CAMPAIGN
For their next ad campaign, Dolce and Gabbana is collaborating with Madonna . What is so odd about this collaboration is that she is being used for their menswear campaigns.The glamorous design duo is teaming up with iconic pop songstress Madonna and the Dolce and Gabbana Madonna ad will be shot next month by famed celebrity photographer Steven Klein.It should be interesting to see how Steven Klein shoots her as an advocate for fashionable menswear.Source: http://www.trendhunt...gabbana-madonna

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 “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.
