Madonna and Lola At The Bent On Learning Function In NYC!

Must Say Looking Might Fine!

Hello Operator....

One of the rare and fantastic photos up for sell on ebay. Seems they were "taken" from Melissa Crowe's (M's previous assistant) things without her knowledge. She would like them returned. People don't bid on them!


The Queen and Her King!

The "Power Of Madonna" Is #1 In The US!

The “Glee”/Madonna celebration is in full swing on the Billboard 200 albums chart, where “The Power of Madonna” soundtrack to last week’s Queen of Pop-themed show debuts at No. 1 with 98,000 copies sold according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Additionally, the “Glee” cast’s version of Madonna’s 1989 No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 hit “Like a Prayer” was the biggest selling individual track from the show last week, debuting at No. 10 on the Digital Songs chart with 87,000 downloads sold. “Prayer” will debut at No. 27 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart tomorrow when it’s unveiled on

But the party also extends to the diva’s own catalog of her original recordings as well. For example, her appropriately titled “Celebration” greatest hits album re-enters the Billboard 200 at No. 85 with 6,000 (up 219%). That’s the package’s best sales week since Christmas. (In the show last week, “Glee” character Sue Sylvester gave the title some ridiculous product placement when she held the CD in her hand during an appeal to have Madonna’s music blasted through the school’s intercom.)

All told, Madonna’s catalog of albums saw a 44% jump in sales, selling 17,000 this past week (up from 12,000).

Her digital song download tally this week also got a big bump. Her total track sales totaled 108,000 for the week ‹ up 169% compared to the week previous (40,000). Her two biggest-selling songs of the week were “4 Minutes” and “Like a Prayer” (each selling 12,000 with gains of 183% and 267%, respectively).

Lessons From M: How The Material Girl Makes It Easier To Turn 40!


Lessons From Madonna
How the Material Girl makes it easier to turn 40.
Apr 24, 2010
By Raina Kelley

I’m turning 40 in a week. But I have no plans … I was thinking of staying home and compulsively turning the lights on and off like Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction. What else is there to do? I don’t want to be 40 but, as my dad says, what’s the alternative? So I’ve decided to sulk. Really, this is not an elaborate public manipulation to get Steve Jobs to pity me and send me an iPad. Well, it’s not just an elaborate manipulation, since an iPad would make me feel better. Seriously, the number 40 is sitting on my chest like a lead weight. Those of you who read my column regularly will know that I am extremely dramatic and unusually self-obsessed, even for a journalist. So trust me, I used to like nothing better than my birthday. Over the years, I’ve thrown parties in my own honor so elaborate, they make the Super Bowl halftime show look like amateur hour. People are still shaking their heads about my 27th at that bowling alley near NYU. There are drag shows that don’t use that many feathers. So the fact that I’m willing to let this birthday go by without so much as a drink after work is a worrying sign that a nervous breakdown is looming. And I don’t have time for a mental collapse—I have a toddler.

So just when I feel like curling up on the floor with some Dulcolax and a bottle of moonshine, who should come to my rescue? That’s right, the Material Girl. I watched last week’s Glee Madonna episode twice with my mouth agape. I have no idea what happened plotwise—somebody lost their virginity, somebody else didn’t, I have to watch it again—but those production numbers rocked my world. Go ahead, roll your eyes, but “Vogue” was the first EP I ever bought on CD (before that I used tapes—OK, tapes!). And I was 21 when Madonna’s tour movie Truth or Dare came out. Already self-aggrandizing, I thought of that movie more as a career blueprint than as entertainment. At that point, my entire adult life was ahead of me and that movie made me feel like there was a place big enough in the world to hold my ambitions—that no matter how narrow our culture seemed to be on subjects of race and gender, there would be room for me to shine.

Flash-forward 20 years and I feel like the world is small and tiring. I feel old, and not just because I don’t get Twitter, but because of the whole generational divide thing. Hipsters get on my nerves and there’s no way to explain why without sounding like something out of Grumpy Old Men. And don’t even get me started on our culture’s chronic misuse of the word ironic. I miss the days when I was young and callow—narcissism is so much more flattering on the young. Back then, I thought, I’m going to be fabulous and live forever, consequences be damned. So it’s hard to accept that what I believe now—every moment is precious, life is short, and there’s no time like the present—may be true but doesn’t exactly make me feel exuberant. Hearing all that Madonna brought my youth rushing back, not the bad choices and worse men, just the ambitious, hopeful part. Somehow the show made me realize that I probably need to stop whining, get off the couch, and just be fabulous. Madonna is once again my model for how to live life.

That’s not because she’s one of the most successful performing artists of all time or an amazing businesswoman, or even because she’s the master of reinvention. But because she’s still fearless. It’s been 26 years since she writhed on the floor at the first MTV Music Awards and she’s still pushing our cultural buttons on how girls are supposed to act. So many women seem vulnerable to the judgments of others, as if they’ll blow away if somebody deems them unworthy or fat. But Madge doesn’t she give a damn what anyone thinks. She started in Detroit and now lives in a English manor with the accent to match. That’s self-confidence. Watch the video for “Four Minutes” and wait for the line “But if I die tonight at least I can say I did what I wanted to do. Tell me how ’bout you?” before you disagree. The woman is snarkproof. Is there another 51-year-old out there who can get away with naming his or her tour “Sticky and Sweet”? At an age when most women are cutting their hair short, putting away the thongs, and preparing for hot flashes, Madonna remains as culturally relevant as she was when she sang “Like a Virgin” and looks just as good in a corset. Oh, sure, people say she isn’t what she was, but what’s the alternative? You grow and change, or you die.

While lots of women are still struggling with work-life balance and deciding which dreams to defer, Madonna is still calling her own shots and adopting children. As she said in a 2008 Nightline interview: “I may be dressing like the typical bimbo, whatever, but I’m in charge. You know. I’m in charge of my fantasies. I put myself in these situations with men, you know, and … people don’t think of me as a person who’s not in charge of my career or my life, OK. And isn’t that what feminism is all about, you know, equality for men and women? And aren’t I in charge of my life, doing the things I want to do? Making my own decisions?” So in honor of Madge, I’ve decided to throw off my mourning clothes, put on my thigh-high boots and take charge of my fantasies. I might even party like a rock star next week. Oh, and Twitter is stupid and hipsters are derivative lemmings.

"Glee" Madonna Sequel In The Works!

‘Glee’ exclusive: Madonna sequel in the works!by Michael AusielloCategories: Glee, News, Scoop

The afterglow from last night’s smashing (and highly-rated) Madge-themed episode has barely dimmed and already series creator Ryan Murphy is talking to the Material Girl about a sequel!
Murphy confirms that he’s in discussions with M’s camp and that “Madonna and her people are into it and want it to happen.” The follow-up would air early next season and feature six more songs from the pop icon’s immense catalogue of hits. (There’s talk that fans might be able to vote on which tracks should be used via a poll on

The Glee-Madonna marriage has already reaped huge dividends for both the show and the star. Tuesday’s episode attracted a potent 13.5 million viewers, down just 5 percent from last week’s record-setting spring premiere. Additionally, the soundtrack from the ep is currently No. 1 on iTunes and two of the singles are in the Top 20.
The power of Madonna indeed.

Thoughts? Is Glee smart to stay in business with Madge? And which hit should Sue tackle next? “Human Nature,” perhaps?

Dolce & Gabbana Working With Madonna Again!

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana are in New York. A rep confirmed they shot the fall 2010 men’s campaign at Mulberry Street Bar in Little Italy yesterday. Spies in the neighborhood tell us the bar was closed with the blinds drawn yesterday, with a trailer parked around the corner on Broome Street. Over the weekend, one large trailer was also spotted on Broome Street, with several walkie-talkie–wielding handlers directing foot traffic. Madonna is reportedly shooting a commercial for the designers with Steven Klein this week in the same neighborhood. It could be for her sunglasses line for the label, though some are speculating she’ll return as the Dolce face for fall. “That’s what’s been going on?” one spy said. “I thought it was Law & Order.” Well it is Little Italy, so you never know. Keep your eyes out for Madonna in the neighborhood, though.

Madonna Gives Props To "Glee" Episode!

Not only is Madonna excited to have her songs used in next week’s “Power of Madonna” episode of “Glee,” she is also apparently hot for teacher.

“I think Mr. Schuester is very cute,” Madonna said in a statement, referring to Matthew Morrison, who plays the glee-club instructor on the hit Fox show. “And I’m glad he’s doing such a good job empowering all the girls.”

In the episode, according to Fox, Mr. Schuester assigns the kids to sing Madonna songs because he thinks the girls have been mistreated by the boys. He wants them all to benefit from the girl-power messages in tracks like “Express Yourself.” “Like a Prayer,” “Like a Virgin” and “4 Minutes” are also covered in the episode.

"Glee" Devotes An Entire Hour To "The Power Of Madonna" Tuesday, April 20, On Fox!

April 14th, 2010
GLEE pays homage to Madonna and the power of her music with a full episode devoted to one of the most revered and iconic musicians of this generation. The sure-to-be-fan-favorite installment of television’s most-loved new series will air in its regular time period Tuesday, April 20 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

In “The Power of Madonna” episode, MR. SCHUESTER (Matthew Morrison) is concerned that the girls in the glee club are being disrespected and bullied by the male members. Looking to Madonna and her musical message of equality as inspiration, he challenges the entire team to choose Madonna songs as their next assignment in the hopes that the girls embrace Madonna’s strength, independence and confidence so that the guys will see the errors of their misogynistic ways. The glee club takes the assignment to heart and performs some of Madonna’s greatest hits, including “Express Yourself” and “Like a Prayer.” Meanwhile, KURT (Chris Colfer) and MERCEDES (Amber Riley) give SUE (Jane Lynch) a vote of confidence with a Madonna makeover that is definitely in “Vogue.

Madonna commenting on the episode said, “I think Mr. Schuester is very cute, and I’m glad he’s doing such a good job empowering all the girls.”

“This episode is our love letter to Madonna, an artist who has inspired me all my life. The hardest part was having to choose which songs to include from her incredible catalogue, as there were so many we wanted to do,” said GLEE executive producer and co-creator Ryan Murphy. “We send her our thanks for her generosity with her music.”

If you missed last night’s Chevy-sponsored world premiere of Sue Sylvester’s version of “Vogue,” which will appear as part of the Madonna-themed episode, watch it now at and . GLEE’s “Vogue” features Sue, Kurt and Mercedes in an homage to Madonna with a brilliant re-creation of the groundbreaking music video.

The soundtrack from “The Power of Madonna” episode will be available in stores the same day it airs, Tuesday, April 20. The album features GLEE’s distinctive and unique take on such classics as “Like A Virgin,” “Express Yourself,” “Vogue,” “4 Minutes” and more.

Madonna Leaves Malawi With Promises Of Twice A Year Visits!

Lilongwe, Malawi – Pop diva Madonna, who arrived in Malawi Monday, has left the southern African country with promises of twice-a-year visits.

“Malawi has become my second home,” Madonna said Thursday night at a farewell reception organized by members of staff of her Raising Malawi, the charity she set up for her Malawi cause.

“I will be coming here twice every year,” she promised.
Madonna first visited Malawi in 2006 during which she adopted a Malawian boy, David Banda, now four.

She adopted her second Malawian child, daughter Mercy Chifundo James – also now four, in 2009.
Contrary to media speculation, there was no reunion of her adopted children with their natural relations.

Madonna’s private jet left Kamuzu International Airport at 4.30 am Friday, according to airport sources.

During her visit, she laid the first brick, signaling the commencement of her US$15 million Raising Malawi Academy for Girls.

With renowned American economist, Prof. Jeffrey Sachs, and Ericsson CEO Hanz Ves tburg, Madonna launched ‘Connect to Learn’, an initiative bank-rolled by the global telecommunication giant, to encourage on-line learning for kids in developing countries.

Madonna and David Return To Malwaian Orphanage!

This file photo is of Madonna and son David, is from one of her previous visits to Malawi.

By Raphael TenthaniBBC News, Malawi

Pop singer Madonna has taken her adopted son David to visit his former orphanage in central Malawi.
Chants of “welcome home, David!” and “we love you, David!” could be heard from inside the Home Of Hope as the four-year-old and his mother arrived.

Journalists were barred from the reunion, which took place during Madonna’s week-long stay in Malawi.
But the head of the orphanage said Madonna did not want to break David’s “emotional attachment” to the home.

“David spent most of his first days on earth here,” Lucy Chipeta told the BBC. “We are delighted to have him back.”
“We have preserved his room including his crib,” she added.

As Madonna engaged in discussions with the orphanage’s directors, David and his older sister Lourdes played with the young residents.
However, the four-year-old’s biological father, Yohane Banda, was nowhere to be seen.
Chipeta refused to comment on why he had not attended.

Madonna, in Malawi since Monday, is scheduled to leave the southern African country on Friday.
The pop star, 51, funds six orphanages through her Raising Malawi charity and is setting up a school for girls on the outskirts of the country’s capital, Lilongwe.

Daughters Lourdes and Mercy accompanied the pop diva to the ceremony.
Madonna arrived in Malawi on Monday day for a week-long charity tour to inspect projects she established since her first visit in 2006.

Madonna's Speech In Malawi!

Madonna Most Played Artist Of The Decade In The UK!

Madonna was the most played artist of the last decade in the UK, according to music licensing body PPL.

The singer, 51, who had her first UK hit with Holiday in 1984, beat The Beatles into second place and Robbie Williams into third.

Queen were fourth and Take That were fifth in the chart compiled for BBC Radio 2.

It was based on plays – between 2000 and 2009 – on TV, radio and in public places including pubs, clubs and shops.

Madonna was the only female solo singer to make the top 10.

Girl band Sugababes, meanwhile, who entered the UK charts for the first time in 2000 with Overload, were the only act in the top 10 who emerged within the decade being scrutinised.

The chart was revealed on Radio 2 show People’s Artist Chart, presented by comedian Patrick Kielty.

In December, PPL announced that Snow Patrol song Chasing Cars was the most widely-played song of the decade.

Last year, another chart compiled for Radio 2 – also by PPL – found that Procol Harum’s A Whiter Shade of Pale was the most played song in public places in the previous 75 years.

The song, which features a distinctive organ riff, stayed at number one for six weeks in the UK in the summer of 1967.

1. Madonna
2. The Beatles
3. Robbie Williams
4. Queen
5. Take That
6. Sugababes
7. Elton John
8. Elvis Presley
9. Abba
10. Coldplay

R.I.P Caresse Henry.

Caresse Henry, a well-known artist manager who handled Madonna’s career during her “Ray Of Light” period, has died unexpectedly at age 44, according to CNN, MTV and other sources. Authorities in Orange County, Calif., where she lived, say Henry died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, CBS is reporting. Details follow.

Henry, a longtime Madonna associate who guided the pop superstar’s career for roughly ten years until 2004, died “suddenly” on Wednesday in Irvine, Calif.m where she lived, according to a statement from Madonna’s longtime publicist, Liz Rosenberg. The statement contended that “despite rumors to the contrary, the cause of death has not been determined and is currently under investigation.” In addition to Madonna, Henry worked with such artists as Ricky Martin, Joss Stone, Jessica Simpson, Paula Abdul and comedian Andrew Dice Clay.
One of Henry’s former clients, Jimmy Demers, a singer who recently collaborated with Paula Abdul, wrote in a post on the Huffington Post that Henry’s death “hit me like a ton of bricks… I’m not sure what details lead her to this dark moment of hopelessness, and I’m not sure there was anything anyone could have done to save her.”

Henry is survived by her two children, Honour Kristen Norman and Ava Caresse Hinojosa, who both live in Los Angeles.
