  1. MDNA Skin U.S Launch

    I think with the previous MDNA spot she was all serious and tried to make it like a European indie film on expressionism or something. This one is just plain fun and weird. I like the new one. It's just random and silly. I enjoy it when she doesn't take herself so seriously (need we re-live the SER-oooom moment?).
  2. Oh my god. I almost feel sorry for her. Welp, thanks for playin' Gag.
  3. It sounds like the wishes for a more "organic" album may come to fruition. If she stays true to form, we'll know by Fall 2018.
  4. This. If she did do a residency, I don't think it would be Vegas. My bet is on NYC, London, or Paris. It has to be some place where people from all over travel often, and is reasonably classy. Vegas is a shit hole.
  5. Rebel Heart Tour DVD/Blu-ray

  6. The Portugal Album : official thread

    I know that. "Shanti/Ashtangi" is a prime example. However, Ray of Light was not 12 songs like "Shanti/Ashtangi". Like I said, there will be shades of world music, but a full-on fado album is unlikely unless she's planning to wind up her career as a pop artist.
  7. Madonna in Lisbon, Portugal

    More details on her Lisbon musical outings of late: https://nit.pt/coolt/musica/madonna-passou-a-noite-em-alfama-a-ouvir-fado Forget the international fairs, the promotions in the travel agencies or the millionaire publicity campaigns. Madonna, the latest inhabitant who has made it a point to show on social networks how passionate she is for her new city, is promoting the most of Lisbon's tourism at the moment. On the night of this Saturday, September 9, the American star published a video showing that she went to Casa de Linhares in Alfama to listen to the fate of Vânia Duarte. Madonna says it's "so inspiring". A day earlier, the singer had also passed through Lisbon's historic quarter to be enchanted by the warm Cape Verdean Dino D'Santiago. The natural musician from Quarteira made a version of the famous song "Sôdade" , by Cesária Évora, accompanied by Ricardo Toscano. The performance was integrated into the Lisbon Living Room Sessions series, of concerts that take place in private houses in the center of Lisbon. It remains to be seen how fado, PALOP's African rhythms and life in Lisbon will influence the work of Madonna, who in recent days has met with Vhils and shared an image of a work by Wasted Rita, another street artist who collaborates with the Underdogs Gallery. In addition, Instagram has shown several graffiti and tags on the walls of Lisbon. It may be that we meet her at the Imminent Festival next weekend, September 15, 16 and 17 - an event of music and urban art curated by Vhils - in the Municipal Garden of Oeiras, just 15 minutes by train Alcantara, the neighborhood Madonna now calls home.

  8. The Portugal Album : official thread

    She's a pop artist. All of her albums have been pop, or at least pop/dance, oriented at their core. I really doubt the entire album will be Portugese music. I think it's obvious there could be some influences and I bet the next tour will have a section inspired by her new geography (and probably also some Puglia). I'd love to see shades of world music, but I don't think she's going to go that far off script. If she does, it will definitely be a career changing moment.
  9. Madonna Instagram Thread

    You know there is going to be some kind of Cesária Évora influence on the next album and tour, at least one or two songs. I'm not saying she'll sing in Cape Verde Creole, but that style is basically a stone's throw away from something between "La Isla Bonita" and "To Have And Not To Hold".
  10. Well, the notes say Nikki. You both could've posted about it but I only saw that one.
  11. I have one but I've never posted it like I did for albums. An abbreviated version: November 2009 - Madonna pens letter to ICON saying she has finished the script May 2010 - Gus Van Sant interviews Madonna for INTERVIEW magazine in which she says she will start filming the movie this summer [2010]. In the same month, the Daily Mail reports Andrea Riseborough is cast as the Duchess of Windsor. Oscar Isaac is also reportedly cast. July 5, 2010 - Principle photography begins in England. A press release is put out announcing the full cast. September - Madonna does final shooting in NYC for the film. February 2011 - Some rough cuts of the film are previewed at the Berlin Film Festival for potential distributors March 2011 - Abel Korzeniowski is reportedly starting the score May 2011 - Arianne Phillips reports via Twitter that the film will see its official debut at the Venice Film Festival (in August/Sept. 2011) June 2011 - The Weinstein Company acquires U.S. distribution rights.

  12. The very first news about Avicii was in January 2014: DJ Avicii is currently in Australia touring & he did an interview on Foxtel's Music station Channel V this morning & said what his plans are for the rest of year & he said he has some work with Madonna lined up soon. - that was posted by an MNation forum member (Nikki) on January 23, 2014. The first day they actually worked together (that she posted) was March 7, 2014: Doing some house work after 4 hours of sleep which is why i cant spell! On my way to the studio to work with Avicii! #clean (Madonna on Instagram). Also, she started following Diplo on Instagram on Feb. 17, 2014. However, she didn't start working with him for a little bit (mid-May 2014). Based on past experience, I'd say a Fall 2018 album would be likely. However, she's been gravitating toward spring releases the past few albums (less competition for #1). So Spring 2019 is a probably back-up plan. Although I imagine the majority of her focus will be Loved and any delays on that might slow the album too.
  13. MDNA Skin U.S Launch

    As a previously corrected by another member, that figure I quoted was for the MTG line of business, not just M. I read the WWD article a little too quickly and I should've been more thorough as I am not one to post just for posting's sake. I wasn't trying to spread misinformation, so I'll own that error. However, the large increase in their annual revenue could be attributed to M's line. If they are expanding it in the U.S. and spending money to promote it, I assume it's doing well enough. Anyway, I just wanted to say that.
  14. MDNA Skin U.S Launch

    Not likely. According to MTG - that Japanese company she teamed up with (via WWD.com) - the line did $383 million in revenue this year so far (up 46% over the previous year thanks to the expansion in other Asian markets). Even if Madonna only takes 10% of that (and I am certain she gets more than a standard celebrity cosmetics line), she's raking in close to $40 million a year. Just posting randomly about it on Instagram. Easy cash gig. Hell, in 3 years she probably makes just as much as an 80 date stadium tour and she doesn't even have to leave her bathroom.
