  1. Madonna rules out TV talent shows B Madonna Madonna would never be a judge on a television talent show. The 'Masterpiece' hitmaker - who was at one point rumoured to be in talks for a slot on the US "X Factor' - insists it is not a route she would want to go down because she doesn't want to judge people. Asked if she would ever consider sitting on a panel, she said: "I haven't really thought about it to tell you truth and I've never actually seen any of those shows - I don't watch television. And the contests, well everybody's a bit contest obsessed. "I don't actually like the idea of being a judge. It's so subjective - like what's good and what isn't?" The 53-year-old singer - who has daughter Lourdes, 15, son Rocco, 11, and adopted son David, six, and daughter Mercy, also six - admits that despite the worldwide hype, she does not know who boy band One Direction are. On the subject of the 'X Factor' runners-up, who have been whipping young girls into a frenzy across the globe, she said: "That's a pop group, right? Sorry," before confessing: "I haven't seen them yet, no, sorry. Slap my hand." But one artist she does have her eye on is Adele, who she reveals she would "love" to work with. In an interview with UK morning show 'Daybreak', she said: "I would love to. I would love to meet her, I think she's brilliant, I love her."
  2. MDNA,' Madonna's great new CD, is an exhilarating return to her pop-dance past Album is loaded with upbeat songs like 'Give Me All Your Luvin' ' and 'Superstar' Powered by Inform Madonna by Mert + Marcus. 5 STARS The 53-year-old superstar turns back the clock on her latest disc. On her latest CD, Madonna chirps through a rash of odes to puppy love, blows out the biggest bubblegum song of her career (“Give Me All Your Luvin’”), and corrals the whole disc under a title that cheekily refers to a hallucinogenic drug. Do these sound like the moves of a 53-year-old mother of four to you? In fact, much of “MDNA” — out Tuesday — has more the flip zip of a disc by Katy Perry or Ke$ha than something by a woman who may be older than both their mothers. Then again, we are talking about Madonna, a woman who, at this point, seems just as hellbent on giving the finger to expectations about age that she once gave to assumptions about sex. That stance alone might be enough to give Madonna’s youthful channelings a sense of defiance rather than desperation. But the music itself is what makes her flagrant act of regression not embarrassing but both pointed and exciting. “MDNA” expands on the best elements of Madonna’s last CD, 2008’s “Hard Candy,” her most easily embraced disc since her very first. For “Candy,” the singer abandoned her least attractive feature — her self-importance. Finally, Madonna stopped marring her albums with songs meant to educate us about starving children, world politics or (gag) spiritual growth. Instead, she gave fans what they wanted all along: pitched dance anthems that doubled as smart pop songs. Once again, upbeat tracks dominate “MDNA.” The sole ballad, the droopy “Masterpiece,” comes from another source: the soundtrack to the Madonna-directed bomb of a film “W.E.” Better, Maddy has ditched that post-“Evita”/post-elocution-lessons voice to sing again like either a snotty or an ironically innocent imp. In “Turn Up the Radio,” she sounds blissfully infantile. In “Girl Gone Wild,” she plays teen bad girl with nutty verisimilitude. It helps that the songs themselves have so much snap coursing through them. “I’m Addicted” and “Some Girls” have the dark disco élan of druggier dance club anthems — just the thing for your next trip into a K-hole. “I’m a Sinner” and “Superstar” show a Cee Lo-style love for ’60s Day-Glo pop. They rate among her zippiest songs ever. So many good tracks crowd the disc, in fact, that even the four extras on the deluxe version rate as must-owns. The dance songs that dominate aren’t pushing mainstream club music ahead, as Madonna did on albums like “Erotica” or “Ray of Light.” But they’re in step with the most pleasurable tics and beats of now. Some listeners will see the aftermath of Madonna’s divorce from Guy Ritchie reflected in the lyrics. But the four cuts that promise to be the most autobiographical contradict each other. Two strike an apologetic or regretful tone (“Best Friend” and “I F--ed Up,” both in the deluxe version). The other pair turn vindictive (“I Don’t Give A,” and “Love Spent”). The only song that inescapably mines Madonna’s life for material — “I Don’t Give A” — reads as too literal and, so, self-indulgent. Worse, it suffers from a draggy melody. The song gossip-lovers may most wish were about her ex — “Gang Bang,” in which she imagines not just gunning a boyfriend down but chasing him into hell to do it again — is a hoot. It’s also historic. It may be the world’s first murder-ballad-as-disco song. Better, the piece references Cher’s zippy ’60s hit “Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down).” Couple that with a reference to “The Beat Goes On” in “B-Day Song,” plus Madonna’s queenly getup at this year’s Super Bowl, and it seems as if the star has, at last, fulfilled a goal many of us have long held for her: She’s becoming Cher. Still, the album’s greater feat has a far more subversive, if not superhuman, dimension. It finds Madonna aging in the most nose-thumbing way possible — in reverse Read more: http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/music-arts/mdna-madonna-great-cd-exhilarating-return-pop-dance-article-1.1048414#ixzz1q7x2KTUZ

  4. Chains, gyrations, and barely there outfits: Youtube bans Madonna's Girl Gone Wild video By Iona Kirby PUBLISHED: 00:36 GMT, 25 March 2012 | UPDATED: 00:36 GMT, 25 March 2012 Comments (8) Share A raunchy video for the latest single by Madonna has been banned from being seen by under-18s on YouTube. The video for Girl Gone Wild features the 53-year-old singer dancing in black PVC hotpants with topless male dancers in black tights and stiletto heels. YouTube rules say videos can be restricted if they contain ‘nudity and dramatised or implied sexual conduct’. SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO... Still got it: Madonna shows off her flexibility in her music video for Girl Gone Wild Sex appeal: The 53-year-old doesn't hold anything back in the newly released raunchy video Fans who want to watch the five-minute black-and-white film on the site have to sign in to website Google – YouTube’s parent company – and confirm their name and date of birth. More...Forget The Voice... it was about the fashion for the girls! Jessie J upstages dowdy Holly Willoughby in skintight leotard A spokesman for Google said the video breached ‘community guidelines’. It is understood Madonna has been sent a list of scenes that must be cut if the restriction is to be lifted. Madonna’s video for the single Justify My Love was banned by MTV in 1990. The star’s spokesman Liz Rosenberg said: ‘Some things never change.’ Skimpy: The sexy video is shot in black and white and sees Madonna scantily clad Living up to its namesake: Madonna gyrates up against the wall in one of the scenes Bondage: Part of the music video shows Madonna's silhouette as she dances while in chains The video has a distinct bondage style and appears to be something of a rehash of her Sex era. At one point the pop icon can be seen enjoying an embrace with several topless and oiled up young men, who later dance around in just leggings and stilettos. The highly anticipated video was released on the internet today and quickly became a top trending topic on Twitter. Users of the social networking site had varying opinions, although some did their best to fuel the ever-present row between Madonna and Lady Gaga.

However others scotched this idea. One Twitter user, Callum J R Davies, wrote: ‘So Madonna stole Girl Gone Wild form Alejandro, but that was taken from Vogue, Express Yourself & Human Nature... Madonna stealing her self. [sic]’ Most people had praise for the video and one Twitter fan described it as ‘breathtaking’.

  5. http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1681501/madonna-girl-gone-wild.jhtml Madonna's 'Girl Gone Wild' Video: Five Key Nods To Her Past From 'Vogue' to 'Human Nature,' MTV News points out the many nods to the Queen of Pop's legendary music videos. By John Mitchell The video for video for "Give Me All Your Luvin," "GGW" is not plot-driven, but rather an assemblage of striking images that recall the dark, sexed-up era she ushered in with her "Vogue" video and which reached its apex with the release of her "Sex" book and Erotica album. Madonna makes references to her iconic past throughout the video, meshing vintage M with her current self seamlessly. Below are the five key references we noticed in the "Girl Gone Wild" clip: "Erotica" From Madonna's big, diva-like bleach-blond hair to those chains and leather-brief-wearing men, the dark, sexy vibe here is pure "Erotica"-era Madge. The clip for "Erotica" was markedly grittier, employing camera filters and sleazy locations (and, you know, bridles and whips) to give off an S&M vibe. If "Girl" isn't as gritty in its approach to sex, it's also far less off-putting. The sex stuff in the "Erotica" video is more of an artful expression of fetishism than it a series of "wow, that's hot" moments, like those featured in "GGW." But as usual, M delivers plenty of edgy eye candy. "Vogue" Those moves! Those angular, cutting arm, leg and body movements. Check. A bunch of scantily clad male dancers posing in formation. Check. In addition to being shot entirely in black-and-white, the dancing in "Girl Gone Wild" is a direct callback to the sharp moves from "Vogue." A few times in the video (check 1:10), Madonna and her dancers are definitely "vogueing" — or at least as close to it as she's gotten since she struck her most famous pose in 1990. There's also something to be said for the gay culture references in both videos. Madonna made vogueing mainstream in 1990 with her hit, but the highly stylized form of dance was actually born in the late-'80s Harlem gay ballroom scene (see the amazing documentary "Paris Is Burning" if you want to know where vogueing really came from). She embraced the connection then and appears to be doing the same here. In "GGW," we have two male models gnawing on the same apple, dancers in heels (and little else) and many, many suggestive close-ups celebrating the male form. "Human Nature" The "Human Nature" video is most remembered for Madonna's black latex bodysuit, and she resurrects the look for "GGW ." Beyond the suit itself, the "Nature" video also cast Madonna and her dancers in all black and set them against an all-white background, a style choice she uses frequently throughout "Girl." Like the "GGW" clip, the vid for "Nature" was directed by a well-known fashion photographer, Jean-Baptiste Mondino, who also helmed Madonna's controversial video for "Justify My Love." "Justify My Love" Speaking of which, Her Madgesty is getting awful handsy with her sexy dancers here, and late in the video, we find Madonna and her dancers really going for it, writhing in a pile and feeling each other up. The "Love" video was, of course, banned from MTV in 1990 for its depictions of sex acts. Set in a voyeuristic hotel, the "Love" clip includes what we can only refer to as an orgy sequence, and she recalls that a bit here, albeit in a tamer fashion. The scene in "GGW" is less explicit because it's not as direct about its subject matter — being sexy is part of the "GGW" narrative, while making a grand observation about full-on sex was at least part of the point of "Justify My Love." "Like a Prayer" Madonna wouldn't be Madonna without a direct reference to religious iconography. Here, we get a dancer wearing a crown of thorns. Her video for "Like a Prayer" famously featured Catholic symbols, including stigmata and burning crosses, and a dream about making love to a saint on an alter. Madonna herself has even donned a crown of thorns onstage. During her performance of "Live to Tell" on her Confessions Tour, Madonna sang from a massive mirrored cross while sporting the crown.

  7. 'Adele fat? That is ridiculous. She’s great, how much she weighs has nothing to do with it' Madonna hits back over jibe that shocked pop Speaking her mind ... Madonna opens up to Gordon Smart in Day Two of her exclusive interview ExclusiveBy GORDON SMART, Showbiz Editor Published: Today at 01:12 IN her three-decade reign as the undisputed queen of pop, Madonna has never shied away from controversy. Related Stories Madonna on her family life SHE tells Sun she feels her ‘head is going to explode’ from the stress of being single mum Madonna is singing the bruise Girl Gone Wild is pure Mad-gic Madonna rolls back the years Madonna may be set to wed And she has lost none of her appetite for a good verbal scrap — as she demonstrated when she sprang to the defence of Brit star Adele after Karl Lagerfeld called her "too fat". In Day Two of an exclusive interview with The Sun, Madonna branded the legendary fashion designer's comments "horrible" and "ridiculous". Last month, the eccentric Chanel designer claimed Tottenham-born Adele was "a little too fat" when he guest-edited a French magazine. But Madonna, 53, stuck up for the Grammy-winner, hitting back: "That's horrible. That's ridiculous, that's just the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. "I don't like it when anybody says anything bad about anyone — I don't like it. Adele's a great talent and how much she weighs has nothing to do with it." Madonna, who has won seven Grammys and two Brit awards, explained how she has sustained a career in music spanning more than a quarter of a century — and said it is decent advice for Adele, 23, to stay on the right track. No weigh ... Adele was labelled 'fat' by Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld She said: "The thing for Adele to remember is at the end of the day, whether you rise or fall, it has so much to do with how you sustain yourself and keep your integrity and your inner strength. "It is all about who you surround yourself with — friends and people who really do care about you, and care about your well-being beyond being a superstar. That's the most important thing." Over the past six months, two of the brightest female solo stars have passed away in tragic circumstances. Last July Amy Winehouse died aged just 27 after suffering a public battle with drugs and alcohol. Then last month Whitney Houston was found dead in her hotel bath in the Beverly Hilton in LA. She was 48. 'Horrible' ... Madonna has hit out at Karl for his comments about Adele Like all music fans, Madonna was shocked by the deaths before their time. She said: "I, probably like everybody else, was hit by this shocking sense of disbelief – especially with Whitney Houston. "It had not been a secret, the struggles Amy had been through — both brilliant, brilliant artists and obviously both huge losses. "But when these things happen, I'm always shocked by the first thing you say — 'It's such a loss' — which doesn't quite cover it. "Then you reflect and you think, 'How did it happen? How did the people around them allow it to happen?' "We've lost so many great artists that way when you think about it. So history just kind of repeats itself over and over. Star files ... how Madonna and Adele compare "One thing I was struck by with Whitney Houston is I remember she sort of came out as a singer around the same time I did. "I remember looking at her singing and hearing people talk about her, and just thinking, 'Oh my God. She's such a beautiful woman and my God, what an incredible voice. I wish I could sing like that.' "I just remember being extremely envious of her and also touched by her innocence. "I was watching a documentary about Serge Gainsbourg, the French songwriter, and there's a famous talk show he did that happened a while back when Whitney was just starting. "It was funny, because I'd just watched it the week before she died, where he was making a kind of play for her on national television and he was basically saying in French that he wanted to 'f' her — and the look of shock on her face... Gone too soon ... Amy Winehouse "I mean, she was so innocent and so young, and so cute, and really she blushed. "And I was thinking, 'We are all innocent at one stage in our life. It's just interesting, the paths our lives take.' "I was struck by that — how well she started and where she ended up and the tragedy of it." Madonna is about to release her twelfth studio album, MDNA, and kicked off the promo cycle for the release with a high-profile gig during half-time of the Super Bowl last month. The gig, with Brit M.I.A and New York rapper Nicki Minaj, sparked huge controversy in the US when M.I.A flicked a middle finger at the camera. If you blinked, you would have missed it. But it didn't stop a conservative audience complaining in their thousands — with a very different finger of blame pointing at Madonna. 'We've lost so many great artists' ... Whitney Houston died in February But the mum-of-four has mixed views about the uproar. She said: "Well, you know, the thing is we were in NFL territory. "We were in the sacred ground of football and I think that it's a very important and well-viewed event. "It was accepted and understood by everyone performing that we would be — what's the word I'm looking for — politically correct. "I think the NFL were more worried about me than anything else, thinking that I was going to do something crazy or provocative. And I really had no intention of doing something shocking. "I was working too hard in putting the show together to think about how I was going to do something to p*ss people off. "They fought hard for me to get me more rehearsal time, and to give me what I wanted creatively for the show. Flipping out ... M.I.A caused outrage after she swore during the Super Bowl "I felt like I owed them to give them back what they wanted. "So on that level, I was upset because I knew that I got some people into trouble that really went forward for me. "And I don't wanna do that — I don't want anybody to get in trouble at my expense because they worked so hard to give me what I wanted, so there's that side of it. "On the other hand, I didn't know M.I.A did it, and everybody was outraged about it so I viewed the footage and I kind of almost missed it. "And I was like, 'Oh, okay'. It didn't seem like that big a deal at the end of the day, so there's two sides to the story. "You know, that's her thing, it's pretty punk rock and actually, in the bigger picture of things, much crazier things have happened." Fans around the UK and Ireland have already bought tickets to see Madonna perform this summer in London, Edinburgh and Dublin. And she hopes the shows will cause as much of a stir with her own fans in the stadium. On stage ... Madonna performing with M.I.A right, and Nicki Minaj, left She said: "Oh God, I hope somebody is going to give the middle finger at my show. It probably won't be me because I've done it too many times. "I hope I have some ideas. The creative well is dry but I just started rehearsals last week and mostly I have been focusing on music. "I do have ideas and I have a lot of work ahead of me. I'm incredibly anxiety-ridden about it." There is no sign of Madonna packing up her fishnets and leotard either — even though she has passed the half century. And fans will be pleased to hear she is as motivated as ever to carry on her illustrious career. She said: "I guess I love doing what I do. I have a voice, I have opinions, I have things I wanna say. "I love music, I love telling stories. So I guess as long as I feel that way I'll keep doing what I'm doing." MDNA is out on March
