Madonna‘s arm muscles are still a thing of wonder. So her newest venture sort of almost makes sense. Madonna is opening up a chain of gyms called Hard Candy Fitness Centers, named for her last album, natch. The first gym is opening in Mexico City and branches will also be heading to Russia, Brazil, Argentina, as well as multiple locations in Europe and Asia. What, no US of A? Keep reading »
Over the course of the weekend, Madonna has been accused of dating two different men named Brahim. I don’t know how many guys named Brahim you know, but there actually is more than one Brahim in Madonna’s life. And they’re both dancers! The original gent mentioned was Brahim Rachiki (left), who was the choreographer for Madonna’s “Sticky and Sweet” tour and also performed second assistant choreographer duties for Michael Jackson‘s “This is It.” But other sources claim that Madonna’s actually seeing Brahim Zaibat (right), who’s a backup break dancer from France. After the jump, we’ve untangled some of the confusion for you. [Ace Showbiz] Keep reading »
Anytime you hear about un-Photoshopped celeb pics, you assume you’re in for a scandalous treat. We love these gossip items because they make us feel better about ourselves by showing us that famous people aren’t actually flawless demi-gods. Apparently, however, in the case of Madonna, she still looks pretty damn fine without photoshop magic. Here, for your viewing pleasure, some pre-Photoshop pics from her much talked about Dolce & Gabbana campaign. And we must say … we can only hope we look this good at 52 years old. After the jump, some more photos for you to closely inspect with fascination (because we know you will). [StyleFrizz] Keep reading »
A Madonna and Lady Gaga double bill seems way too good to be true. But the word on the street, according to London tabloids and unnamed sources, is that the two pop music shapeshifters are coming together for a tour. Could this be true? Keep reading »

“LA is crazy. The women all look the same now. That thing with the cheeks. Like Madonna. Who do they think they’re fooling? It doesn’t make them look young. You end up looking like a freak.”

Madonna‘s romances and breakups have always been front-page tabloid fodder, but the Material Mom has done an excellent job keeping her children’s lives private. Since her arrival 13 years ago, the world has seen little of her first child, Lourdes Maria Ciccone Leon, other than in paparazzi photos. (Her father is Carlos Leon, a Cuban-American trainer.) Lourdes, who goes by “Lola,” is inching more and more into the public eye with her Macy’s clothing line, Material Girl, and her mega-adorable blog that’s developed a following by more than a few Frisky staffers. On her blog, Lola likes to share her made-up words — fabnosity! — and her favorite bands — My Chemical Romance. But don’t let the normal tween-y behavior fool you: Lola leads a pretty charmed life.

When you hear that a certain not-yet-available-in-America skincare line is how famous English roses like Victoria Beckham and Kylie Minogue — along with in-the-know and often on-the-beach celebrities like Jennifer Aniston, Renée Zellweger — keep their cellulite under control, even the most jaded beauty editor snaps to attention.
When you hear it’s how 51-year-old Madonna helps keep her muscle tone as taut as someone half her age, you start slathering it on, fast and furious. Read more … Keep reading »
Fashion catchphrases come and go. Everyone was obsessed with “fierce” for a while, “fashionista” had its reigning moment, but now Lourdes Ciccone is working hard to add a new term to the world’s vocabulary. She’s been blogging non-stop about the new Material Girls’ Collection for Macy’s, and in between her style stories, It Girl features, and personal pictures, Lola’s introduced a new fashion term to her followers.
“I’m not the designer of the line but my mom and I inspired it and do the styling and the putting together, staying on trend, yadayadayaaaahh. No but for rizzle, it’s a great line and if you guys like it that that is FABNOSITY.”
We’re going to assume that fabnosity is a mix of fabulous and generosity, which would make sense given the context. Despite her genuine attempts to make the term work, this seems like a word that’s limited to the realm of 13-year-old girls who would use it for a week before it dies out again in favor of the latest hot vocab mashup.
