Madonna: Massive Hypocrite On Cigarette Stance?

Madonna is taking a major stand against cigarette smoking — just one month after glamorizing smoking in her latest music video. The Queen of Pop was on ”Today” this morning, where she was grilled over 15-year-old daughter Lourdes being caught puffing away on a cigarette.

Madge says she “wasn’t very happy” about the photos, adding “I don’t approve of anyone smoking cigarettes, most of all my daughter.” Read more…

After half a century on this planet, Madonna has creative expression and power, intellectual curiosity, beautiful children, financial security (and then some), and a team of friends and colleagues who she can love and trust. Only one thing is missing.

Madonna needs a mensch. A good man, a stand-up guy with means and influence. “Mensch” is a Yiddish word meaning “a person of integrity and honor.” Yiddish lexicologist Leo Rosten says a mensch is “someone to admire and emulate, someone of noble character. The key to being a real mensch is nothing less than a sense of what is right, responsible, decorous.”

I’m thinking that since Madonna got such a life-affirming boost from Kabbalah, maybe she would be equally inspired by a Jewish connection in her love life. Keep reading »

Madonna’s book was large and black, with SEX embossed on the front. The coffee-table book of all coffee-table books was an enigma to me, sort of like Madonna herself. One day she was telling you to “Open Your Heart” and the next she was telling you to open your legs, but whatever her message, people were listening. To Brad, my new gay friend, Madonna’s book was the Holy Grail. To me, a tough biracial girl from a small town in Pennsylvania, it wasn’t that big of a deal. Hadn’t we seen her naked already? But I stood next to him in his freshman dorm room itching for a glimpse; there were rumors of bestiality and naked pictures of Vanilla Ice. Cradling the book on his forearm, Brad opened it to a random page and the words “I like my p**sy. Sometimes I stare at it in the mirror” burned up my retinas. My face got hot and I smoothed a hand over my brittle straightened hair. Keep reading »

Reminisce About Your Most Madonna Moments

Love her or hate her, it’s nearly impossible not to have an opinion about Madonna. Even though she’s an international icon, I think most women would attest to having had an intimate moment with the Material Girl. The first time I laid eyes on Madge was in her “Lucky Star” video on MTV. I was a six-year-old aspiring performer, so naturally, the first thing I did after seeing it was run to the bathroom and attempt to style my hair like hers, with too much hairspray and a floppy, black bow. And I’m sure I wasn’t the only little girl to do so. Most of us remember being influenced in some way by Madonna’s music, attitude or edgy style. But deeper than her multitude of memorable pop culture moments are the ways in which she has influenced us as women. In the new anthology Madonna & Me, nearly 40 female authors write about how their own Madonna moments changed their lives. This book is sure to be a compelling exploration on topics every woman can relate to from sex to spandex. Keep reading »

Can We Give Up The Marilyn Monroe Impersonations Now, Please?

Hollywood is filled with blondes — both bottled and born — doing their best Marilyn Monroe imitations. Courtney Stodden, teen bride, was just the latest in a long, sordid trail of celebs to break out the pin curls and red lipstick when she did a photo shoot as the star in Hollywood this week. I’m pretty sure Norma Jean is rolling over in her grave. Seriously: stick a fork in this look ’cause it’s done.

Madonna Says M.I.A.’s Behavior Was “Teenager”

“I was really surprised. I didn’t know anything about it. I wasn’t happy about it. I understand it’s punk rock and everything, but to me there was such a feeling of love and good energy, and positivity it seemed negative. It’s such a teenager … irrelevant thing to do…there was such a feeling of love and unity there what was the point? It was just out of place.”

Madonna finally speaks up about rapper M.I.A. flippin’ the bird during their SuperBowl Half-Time Show performance. So, yeah, I totally agree it was juvenile — or that big of a deal. I must admit, I will never understand why anyone would freak out over a middle finger (or pasty-covered nipple) when they’re watching an event in which dudes pummel each other sometimes to the point of incurring serious injury, in between 30-second advertisements that objectify women. Real love and unity type stuff, you know. (Sasha Frere-Jones delves into the matter quite eloquently in a column for The New Yorker this week that’s worth a read.) [Dlisted]

This year’s Super Bowl halftime show was pretty epic. And the most epic thing about it, besides the marching bands and oiled warriors and light-up bleachers and gymnastics? Madonna’s giant horned tiara crown thingy, of course! We wondered how this dramatic headgear would look superimposed onto iconic paintings, photographs, and movie scenes, so we took some artistic license and used photoshop to find out. Click through to check out the results (spoiler alert: Hannibal Lecter looks awesome in it) …

MIA flips the bird photo
  • NBC is very sorry that M.I.A. flipped the bird during the Super Bowl halftime show. And something tells me M.I.A. is going to be very sorry she upstaged Madonna. [Starpulse
  • Katy Perry dedicated her ode to the penis, “Peacock,” to Tim Tebow, of all people, at a pre-Superbowl show. Is she just messing with us now? [Celebitchy]
  • Demi Moore has checked into a second treatment center “for addiction and an eating disorder,” possibly at Cirque Lodge in Utah, sources tell People magazine. [People]
  • Ryan Phillipe is dating a 22-year-old model named Paulina Slagter, who once appeared in an episode of “Entourage.” I’m pretty sure that makes Ryan’s new girlfriend closer to his daughter Ava’s age than his own age. [PopSugar]

4 Reasons Why Madonna Is The Perfect Choice For The Super Bowl Half-Time Show

In case you’re above following these sorts of things, Her Madgesty has been all over the news, the blogs, and the tabloids again lately. There was September’s much-disparaged hydrangeas incident. Critics’ chilly reception to her new movie, “W.E.” The “narcissistic” acceptance speech she gave upon receiving a Golden Globe award for best original song (beating out rival Elton John, who later snarked that she’d better “lip-sync good” at her upcoming Super Bowl performance). 

As a devout Madonna fan since age six, as far as I’m concerned, she’s worked hard enough to earn every blip of press she gets. Say what you want about her — and you will — but if there’s one thing M knows how to do, it’s bust her ass to get something she wants. And if the recent onslaught of press is any indication, what she wants right now is to build buzz for her upcoming studio album, “MDNA” (to be released on March 26). What better way to do that than by performing at America’s most center-stage stage of all, the Super Bowl’s halftime show? Here’s why Mads is the perfect pick for such an exclusive gig — which, in classic overachiever form, she’s striving to make “the greatest show on earth.” Keep reading »

Watch Video

Madonna has returned! The Material Girl has laid low for a few years, but the new video for her song “Give Me All Your Luvin’” proves that 30+ years after rising to fame, she still somehow looks, sounds, and even moves like no time has passed. That’s the extent to which I will allow myself to compliment the pop star’s recent musical debut.

I shouldn’t “hate” on someone who was just resurrected from the grave, but after watching the video, I am tempted to believe that Madonna may actually be a zombie trying to turn me by way of music video zombification. I was literally stuck in a trance-like, brain-dead state after exposing my senses to the neuron-murdering chant: “L-U-V Madonna, Y-O-U, you wanna” compounded by the confused high school football-themed visual diarrhea.  Keep reading »
