  1. Who is Dino D'Santiago, the new darling of Madonna in Lisbon [My English google translation is shite, so fluent/native Portoguese speakers are welcome to do the correct honor if they wish:] by Maurício Meireles Dino D'Santiago was born into a family that believed in God. In the poor neighborhood of the Algarve where they grew up, he and his brothers started singing in the church - so he says, they had a passion for harmony before the rhythm. In the 1990s, rap began to grow in Portugal. He still remembers when he met Rational MCs. "For the first time the voice of the people crossed the Atlantic. And we recognized this cry, "he says, remembering that the fishing village where he lived had no electricity or running water. In Quarteira, the chic houses flank the huts. He left the sacred music for the invitations he received from the rappers, who wanted someone to sing the choruses. And he went. Today is another moment. Already living in Lisbon, one day she sang "Petit Pays" by Cesária Évora - the song that speaks of a dry land but full of love, and saudade dela- in a presentation. There she received another invitation from a friend to meet a person who, she said, would like him. When he saw it, he was sitting on the floor of a party with a blond American who had moved to the Portuguese capital - it was Madonna. He sang "Sodade" by Cesaria, of whom she is a fan. The singer asked him about his life. "She says, 'Give me a hug, thanks to you, I found a strong reason to stay in the city,'" says D'Santiago. He, who started there to present the lusófona sonority to the pop diva, became the musical guide of Madonna in the Portuguese capital. At one time, Italian Vogue would publish a photo of the singer on his lap, one night in the Tejo Bar, famous for musicians in Alfama, one of Lisbon's Bohemian neighborhoods. In interviews, Madonna is grateful for the collaboration on the new album. "He introduced me to everything," she said, putting a song in one of the album's videos. In addition to the musical references, it was D'Santiago who trained with her the Portuguese part of "Faz Gostoso", sung with Anitta. He says that on the album's tour, Madonna tries to reproduce on stage a homey atmosphere that parties in which he took her. "It's nice to see something that you dreamed of. You have something unique in the city of Lisbon. She's going on an intimate tour, she's going to take the 14-wheeler road. " D'Santiago refers to the Batukadeiras Orchestra, which he presented to her and is on the album "Madame X". Last year, Madonna shared an Instagram video that featured a prayer with the women of the group - they sang "Mary, mother of Jesus / Mary, our mother". "It was all very beautiful. She is a very noble woman. Catapulted my life to another record, made people look at my work. " It's true that having Madonna talking good about you is not bad at all, but D'Santiago has a different road. It began to take off with the Portuguese band Expensive Soul, in which it was 11 years. "I started listening to Marvin Gaye, Sam Cooke, Herbie Hancock. It was my college, "he says, who still went through the band Nu Soul Family. The meeting with the musicality of Cape Verde, which among others enchanted Madonna, is the story of the meeting of an identity. It is the country of his father and his mother, a mason and a cook. He traveled there for the first time 30 years ago and hated it. "It was traumatizing. I went inland, went from donkey to church on the mountain, there was no drinking water, there was no light. I was 20 years without coming back. " Only when he returned with his father after that time did he make a sentimental journey into the family's origins. "I slept with my father in the same bed because it was a very poor house. Without wanting to, he hugged me. I had a strange feeling, but that lap made me feel good. Creole creation is hard, parents do not say 'I love you', they want you to be strong. " As a child, he saw the street through the window, the kids playing, and he felt bad for not having permission to leave. "We were locked up so we would not mix in the street. I dreamed about it. Most of these friends were arrested or died. We were saved by the loving prison of our fathers. " He did not dream of being a musician, because he wanted to study art history and teach. "At puberty, the manga had a lot of influence, drew nude women and exposed my need to grow. I passed it on to the songs, this revolutionary side of those who did not understand the Catholic Church. " The trip to the land of his parents changed his music and his name - added the D'Santiago, reference to the island of the country. When it was composed, there was a writing without revolt, with humor. He began to tread a different path and included the Cape Verdean creole in the letters. "I feel something of Creole in the Portuguese of Minas Gerais." Not to mention the rhythms that, in "Mundu Nôbu", his newly released album, appear with a tailor-made clothing for dance floors, dressed in urban aesthetics. D'Santiago has already appeared wearing a shirt that says "funaná is the new funk" - besides it appear the batuku and the kizomba, this one of Angola, among other rhythms. "The funaná accelerated just like the Brazilian funk. At first it was at 90 BPM, now it is at 160 BPM. We only do it with grog, our brandy, "he laughs. One of the album's most successful songs is "Como Seria", with the refrain that mixes Portuguese, Creole and English - "I give you much more of me / des k'um ta xinti / like Beyoncé and Jay-Z". The second verse means "the way I feel." When he left the stage to sing "Nôs Funaná" in the midst of a small crowd watching him on the EDP Truck, in the parallel programming of the last Flip, the audience jumped as if it were already intimate with that song. He even chanted Zeca Pagodinho's "I Leave It to Life". The songs are danceable, but also political. D'Santiago created "Raboita Sta. Catarina" on a visit to Cape Verde during the festivities in honor of the saint. At the same time as they celebrated, the volcano of Fogo island spat lava-the musician imagined Catarina in fury, because the people rebuffed while the policy was enough to push laws down his throat. "Our belief" sings against mental slavery. It was imagined during a two-hour trip between Viana and Luanda in Angola. "He has the remnants of war. You find dead people on the ground and no one touches them, because you're afraid of being found guilty. I felt a lot of submission. " It demonstrates a lyrical sensitivity formed in hip-hop. "It's a movement to spread. They are the new revolutionaries. As long as the industry does not accept this phenomenon, I will have to agree with Criollo when he says that he is a giant that no one wants to see, but when the garden dawns it is wrinkled. " THE QUEEN OF THE QUEEN The origin Claudino de Jesus Borges Pereira, Dino D'Santiago, is 36 years old and was born in Quarteira, in the Algarve region of Portugal. The beginnings He began to sing at the invitation of friends rappers. In 2004, he performed with the band Expensive Soul. Later, he was part of Nu Soul Family The work His first solo album was 'Me and Me' in 2008. In 2013, he released 'Eva', influenced by Cape Verdean music. At the end of last year, came 'Mundo Nôbu' The diva After meeting Madonna in Lisbon, she became a kind of musical guide for the singer in the Portuguese capital Quem é Dino D'Santiago, o novo queridinho de Madonna em Lisboa Grande influência por trás do disco 'Madame X', músico renova a sonoridade de Cabo Verde com roupagem dançante Atualizado: 17.jul.2019 às 10h40 Maurício Meireles Dino D’Santiago nasceu numa família que acreditava em Deus. No bairro pobre do Algarve onde cresceram, ele e seus irmãos começaram a cantar na igreja —por isso, diz, nutriram paixão pela harmonia antes do ritmo. Nos anos 1990, o rap começou a crescer em Portugal. Ele ainda se lembra quando conheceu os Racionais MC’s. “Pela primeira vez a voz do povo atravessou o Atlântico. E nós reconhecíamos esse grito”, conta, lembrando que a vila de pescadores onde viveu não tinha luz ou água encanada. Na Quarteira, as casas chiques ladeiam os casebres. Deixou a música sacra pelos convites que recebeu dos rappers, que queriam alguém para cantar os refrões. E ele foi. Hoje o momento é outro. Já vivendo em Lisboa, certo dia cantava “Petit Pays”, de Cesária Évora —a canção que fala de uma terra seca, mas cheia de amor, e da saudade dela— numa apresentação. Ali, recebeu outro convite de uma amiga para conhecer uma pessoa que, dizia ela, gostaria dele. Quando viu, estava sentado no chão de uma festa com uma americana loira que se mudara para a capital portuguesa —era Madonna. Ele cantou “Sodade”, de Cesária, de quem ela é fã. A cantora lhe perguntou de sua vida. “Ela diz então: ‘Dá-me um abraço, graças a ti encontrei um motivo forte para ficar na cidade’”, conta D’Santiago. Ele, que começou ali a apresentar a sonoridade lusófona à diva pop, se tornou o guia musical de Madonna na capital portuguesa. Dali a um tempo, a Vogue italiana publicaria uma foto da cantora no colo dele, numa noite do Tejo Bar, famoso por reunir músicos em Alfama, um dos bairros boêmios de Lisboa. Em entrevistas, Madonna tem agradecido pela colaboração no novo disco. “Ele me apresentou a tudo”, já disse ela, que pôs uma música dele num dos vídeos de divulgação do álbum. Além das referências musicais, foi D’Santiago que treinou com ela a parte em português de “Faz Gostoso”, cantada com Anitta. Ele conta que, na turnê do disco, Madonna tenta reproduzir no palco um ambiente caseiro que remete às festas em que a levou. “É bonito ver algo que tu sonhaste. Tens algo único na cidade de Lisboa. Ela está a fazer uma tour intimista, vai levar para a estrada 14 batucadeiras.” D’Santiago se refere à Orquestra Batukadeiras, que ele apresentou a ela e está no disco “Madame X”. No ano passado, Madonna compartilhou no Instagram um vídeo em que participava de uma prece com as mulheres do grupo —elas cantavam “Maria, mãe de Jesus/ Maria, nossa mãe”. “Foi tudo muito bonito. É uma mulher muito nobre. Catapultou minha vida para um outro registro, fez as pessoas olharem para a minha obra.” É verdade que ter Madonna falando bem de você por aí não é nada mau, mas D’Santiago tem estrada independente disso. Começou a decolar com a banda portuguesa Expensive Soul, na qual ficou 11 anos. “Comecei a ouvir Marvin Gaye, Sam Cooke, Herbie Hancock. Foi a minha faculdade”, diz ele, que ainda passou pela banda Nu Soul Family. O encontro com a musicalidade de Cabo Verde, que entre outras encantou Madonna, é a história do encontro de uma identidade. É o país de seu pai e de sua mãe, um pedreiro e uma cozinheira. Ele viajou para lá pela primeira vez há 30 anos e detestou. “Foi traumatizante. Fui para o interior, íamos de burro para a igreja na montanha, não havia água potável, não havia luz. Fiquei 20 anos sem voltar.” Só quando voltou com o pai, depois desse tempo, fez uma viagem sentimental às origens da família. “Dormi com meu pai na mesma cama, porque era uma casa muito pobre. Sem querer ele me abraçou. Tive uma sensação estranha, mas aquele colo me fez bem. A criação crioula é dura, os pais não dizem ‘eu te amo’, querem que você seja forte.” Na infância, via a rua pela janela, os moleques brincando, e se sentia mal por não ter autorização para sair. “Ficávamos trancados para não nos misturarmos na rua. Sonhava com aquilo. Grande parte desses amigos foi presa ou morreu. Fomos salvos pela prisão amorosa de nossos pais.” Não sonhava ser músico, porque queria estudar história da arte e dar aulas. “Na puberdade, o mangá tinha muita influência, desenhava mulheres nuas e expunha minha necessidade de crescer. Passei isso para as músicas, esse lado revolucionário de quem não entendia a Igreja Católica.” A viagem à terra de seus pais mudou sua músicas e seu nome —acrescentou o D’Santiago, referência à ilha do país. Quando foi compor, surgiu uma escrita sem revolta, com humor. Começou a trilhar um caminho diferente e incluiu o crioulo de Cabo Verde nas letras. “Sinto algo do crioulo no português de Minas Gerais.” Isso sem falar nos ritmos que, em “Mundu Nôbu”, seu álbum recém-lançado, aparecem com uma roupagem sob medida para as pistas de dança, revestidos de uma estética urbana. D’Santiago já apareceu vestido com uma camisa que diz “funaná é o novo funk” —além dele aparecem o batuku e a kizomba, este de Angola, entre outros ritmos. “O funaná se acelerou igual ao funk brasileiro. No começo era em 90 BPM, agora está em 160 BPM. Fazemos só com grogue, nossa aguardente”, ri. Uma das músicas de maior sucesso do disco é “Como Seria”, com o refrão que mistura português, crioulo e inglês —“dou-te muito mais de mim/ des manera k’um ta xinti/ like Beyoncé and Jay-Z”. O segundo verso quer dizer “da forma como eu sinto”. Quando saiu do palco para cantar “Nôs Funaná” no meio de uma pequena multidão que assistia a ele no Caminhão da EDP, na programação paralela da última Flip, o público pulava como se já fosse íntimo daquela música. Chegou a entoar o refrão de “Deixo a Vida Me Levar”, de Zeca Pagodinho. As músicas são dançantes, mas também políticas. D’Santiago criou “Raboita Sta. Catarina” numa visita a Cabo Verde durante as festas em homenagem à santa. Ao mesmo tempo em que celebravam, o vulcão da ilha do Fogo cuspia lava —o músico imaginou Catarina em fúria, porque o povo rebolava enquanto a política aproveitava para lhe empurrar leis goela abaixo. “Nôs Crença” canta contra a escravidão mental. Foi imaginada durante uma viagem de duas horas entre Viana e Luanda, em Angola. “Tem os resquícios da guerra. Encontras pessoas mortas no chão e ninguém toca nelas, porque tem medo de ser considerado culpado. Senti muita submissão.” Ele demonstra uma sensibilidade lírica formada no hip-hop. “É um movimento a se espalhar. São os novos revolucionários. Enquanto a indústria não aceitar esse fenômeno, vou ter que concordar com o Criolo quando ele diz que é um gigante que ninguém quer ver, mas quando amanhece o jardim está amassado.” O MUSO DA RAINHA A origem Claudino de Jesus Borges Pereira, o Dino D’Santiago, tem 36 anos e nasceu na Quarteira, na região do Algarve, em Portugal Os primórdios Começou a cantar a convite de amigos rappers.

  2. So Madonna rolled out 6 (that's right six) stellar music videos so far within a couple months of the Madame X era. Which is your favorite? If you need a refresher here you go:
  3. 15 years ago, this CLASSIC film was released in the US! The film opened at #2 at the North American box office making USD$5,870,387, behind The Whole Nine Yards. The film grossed $14,990,582 domestically and $24,362,772 worldwide on a $25 million budget. Did you know!?! In the original script, Abbie worked as a swimming instructor. After reading it, Madonna decided that the character should be a yoga instructor. Helen Hunt was originally slated to play the female lead of Abbie, but Madonna later replaced her. It's rumored that Ryan Murphy and Rupert Everett extensively re-wrote the script. The house that Rupert Everett stays at is actually Cecil B. DeMille's old house. During rehearsals, Rupert Everett accidentally bumped into John Schlesinger. Schlesinger fell and chipped his coccyx. Not many people are aware of this, but The Next Best Thing is also an award winning film! Madonna won a Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Actress, and the film was nominated for other Razzies including: Worst Director - John Schlesinger (lost to Roger Christian for Battlefield Earth) Worst Picture (lost to Battlefield Earth) Worst Screenplay - Thomas Ropelewski (lost to Corey Mandell and J.D. Shapiro for Battlefield Earth) Worst Screen Couple - Madonna and either Rupert Everett or Benjamin Bratt (lost to John Travolta and "anyone sharing the screen with him" in Battlefield Earth) It was nominated as Outstanding Film at the 2001 GLAAD Media Awards, but lost to Billy Elliot. The film also gave us this LEGENDARY photoshop failure of a movie poster One of the most memorable moments that came from this era was when a "not so pregnant" Madonna appeared on TRL, and picked a fan out from the street because she had a box of donuts.
  4. From her Facebook page: Working hard and hardly working...new album...wheeeee!
  5. On November 28, 2014, Thanksgiving came with a suprise: a snippet of 'Rebel Heart' leaked to the internet. We all know now how the story ends! http://www.billboard.com/articles/news/6334591/new-madonna-song-rebel-heart-leaks A snippet of a new Madonna song, rumored to be titled "Rebel Heart," leaked to the Internet on Thursday (Nov. 27). Who's Working on Madonna's Album? 22 Possible Collaborators Madonna's publicist had no comment about the leak, but the diva's manager, Guy Oseary, Tweeted: "I would be grateful to any Madonna fans that can assist us in finding those responsible for the leak. We appreciate your help." About 40 seconds of the dance-meets-acoustic track materialized with Madonna singing, "I've spent some time as a narcissist, hearing the others say 'look at you, look at you.' Trying to be so provocative, I said, 'Oh yeah, that was me. All the things I did just to be seen.'" Madonna Aiming for 2015 Album Release, 'Having a Lot of Fun' With Diplo It's assumed the song is titled "Rebel Heart," as Madonna is heard singing the phrase at one point in the snippet, and because she used the #RebelHeart hashtag on her Instagram for months. The song might be a co-production withAvicii, as Madonna used the #RebelHeart hashtag in a photo of her with him and his team nine months ago. It's unknown if the song clip is from a demo version of the song or a recording of a finished track. (As the audio quality of the snippet is questionable -- it sounds like it was recorded through speakers -- some observers have suggested the song is unfinished.) Madonna has been working on new music throughout 2014, frequently updating her Instagram feed with photos and messages regarding her progress. A new album from the entertainer is expected in 2015. It will be her first studio effort since 2012's MDNA, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart.
  6. http://thestudioexec.com/madonna-to-star-in-narcos-season-2/ HOLLYWOOD – After weeks of speculation, Netflix have announced that Madonna will play a leading role in season two of their latest smash-hit original show, Narcos.“We looked at several actors but we kept coming back to Madonna,” said a studio insider: She’s got exactly the right qualities the character requires, She’s feminine, glamorous but she’s also also a tough businesswoman. Wagner Moura was exceptional as Pablo Escobar and we needed someone with that kind of gravitas. Although Netflix were reluctant to reveal which character Madonna is playing, rumours on social media have suggested she will be taking on the role of Griselda Blanco, a key member of the Medellín Cartel known as La Madrina (The Godmother). “We’re very pleased that Madonna, a woman, is going to play such a significant role in a major television series,” said feminist writer, Ruth Bloom. I was hugely disappointed when they cast a man as Pablo Escobar. Netflix had the opportunity to make a real statement and I know that Jessica Alba narrowly missed out. The company is a trailblazer when it comes to equal opportunities but there is still a long way to go. For example, I actively campaigned for them to cast Melissa McCarthy as The Punisher in Daredevil season two but they sent me a polite message saying that on this occasion, the creators of the series have decided to opt for a male actor to play the role. Meanwhile in other VOD news, Amazon Prime are said to be cutting costs after pouring their entire 2016 budget into acquiring the car show, Top Gear. “It’s a disgrace,” said community manager, Ross Nee on Twitter. Our free Friday bacon sandwiches have been reduced from four rashers to three! I’m seriously considering moving to HBO. Narcos season 2 is due for release in 2016.
  7. I know setlist forums have been going on forever, but I wanted to share what I found. This is the setlist that's making its way around Twitter and other Madonna related websites/forums. Allegedly is the closest to the official tour setlist. What do you think? OPENING - Iconic (Feat. Mike Tyson on Backdrops) - Unapologetic Bitch - Don't Tell Me - Hold Tight A LESSON IN SEXOLOGY - S.E.X. (backdrop) - Holy Water / Vogue - Deeper & Deeper (ends with GGW sample) - Like a Virgin - Inside Out - Devil Pray GATSBY - Candy Shop (backdrop) - Ghosttown - Between the Bars - Body Shop / La Vie En Rose - Music Remix - True Blue - Take a Bow FRIDA - Love Don't Live Here Anymore (interlude) - Living For Love - Dress You Up / Give me All Your Luvin' - La Isla Bonita - Who's That Girl - Rebel Heart ENCORE - Illuminati (backdrop feat. the celebs mentioned) - Bitch I'm Madonna - Holiday What do you think?

  11. http://www.earone.it/news/madonna_hold_tight_radio_date_24_07_2015_15735864/ Madonna - Hold Tight (Radio Date: 07/24/2015) Radio stations in Italy will air 'Hold Tight' , in spite of "Bitch I'm Madonna", and there's no information about releasing it commercially as a single or else, at the moment. New single for Madonna, the queen of pop. It is "HOLD TIGHT," available for the radio programming from Friday, July 24. "Hold Tight", written by the same Madonna with Toby Gad, Thomas Wesley Pentz, Maureen McDonald and Uzoechi Emenike, is the third single from the album "REBEL HEART" - GOLD certified for sales in Italy after only two weeks after - after "Living for Live" and "Ghosttown" (also certified gold in the individual). After recording immediately sold out for Italian first two stages of Rebel Heart Tour on 21 and 22 November at Pala Alpitour of Turin, has added a third on 19 November.
  12. I don't know if this has been posted before but it's worth a look. http://www.madonnarama.com/posts-en/2015/06/25/madonnas-rebel-heart-tour-setlist/ Do you think this means something? Do you think she will actually do one of these songs or is just trolling us? IDK You but I would so much rather hear oldies she hasn't performed in over a decade or more (D&D, True Blue) and oldies she has never done live (Love Don't Live Here Anymore) than the same oldies she's been doing for the past 3 tours (Like a Prayer, Vogue, Human Nature)
  13. Madonna Is Actually a Lot More Like Picasso Than You Think http://www.vogue.com/13288490/madonna-picasso-amy-schumer/ Anyone who has ever gone to a Madonna concert knows the woman has stamina. And at 56 years old, Madge has no plans of slowing down. In a recent interview with the Associated Press, Madonna said that she wants to continue working into her golden years. “I like to compare myself to other kinds of artists like Picasso. He kept painting and painting until the day he died.” Madonna continued: “I don’t think there’s a time, a date, an expiration date for being creative. I think you go until you don’t have anymore to say.” If anyone can serve as proof that an expiration date is meaningless, it’s Madonna. Her career took off in 1983, when she was only 25, and her pop songs and fishnet stockings quickly became a staple of the eighties. She continued to reinvent herself decade after decade, outlasting all her contemporaries. So, she might be on to something when comparing herself to Picasso. Madonna’s trajectory, much like the Spanish artist’s, is divided into clear, defining eras: Picasso had his Rose and Blue Periods; Madonna had her Blond Ambition phase and sexually charged Erotica era. Picasso revived his painting with Cubism; Madonna found Kabbalah and reinvented her sound with “Ray of Light.” There are even similarities in their personal lives. Picasso was a notorious womanizer with a weakness for younger women, while Madonna has made no secret of herfondness for 20-something men. Surrounding herself with young, talented people is another way that Madonna has managed to stay relevant. In 2003, she made VMA history when she locked lips with Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera during a medley performance of “Hollywood” and “Like A Virgin.” For her 2008 album, Hard Candy, she collaborated with Justin Timberlake and Pharrell. Last year, she popped up for a surprise duet on Miley Cyrus’s MTV Unplugged special. This June, she released a new video for her song “Bitch I’m Madonna,” which rounded up an impressive cast of cameos including Beyoncé, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Chris Rock, andKanye West. And with age, comes an even savvier strategy: Madonna has now conscripted this summer’s most popular star, Amy Schumer, to be the opening act during her Rebel Heart tour. Really, if Taylor Swift learned the art of assembling a squad from anyone, it was from Madge.
  14. Let's share all your favourite Madonna GIFs in this thread.
  15. Let me start by saying that this topic is NOT meant to bash Madonna. But listening to the album and especially songs such as BIM, Holy Water, Inside Out and S.E.X. (my all-time fave guilty pleasure!!!) I can't help but wonder how Madonna would have felt about this album and these songs if she could have had a glimpse of the future let's say during 1990-2004. Back then she was so proud of what she was doing, getting more serious as an artist and it paid off with huge sales for her ROL and Music albums. My guess is that American Life's flop ruined everything. She wanted to get back on top as soon as possible. I can't help but wonder how it would've turned out if AL had actually done good. One thing i know for sure, RIT wouldn't have been the Greatest Hits tour it was. Now she needed to remind the world of her back catalogue and then decided to return to pop with the disco oriented Confessions album. Thank God, because I love COADF. Hard Candy is where it really went wrong. From the extremely tacky cover to the average songs and weaker voice... Did she felt inspired by Britney? On songs such as Incredible, Dance 2night and Heartbeat she really sounds like Brit now and then. And then that crappy tour... S&S was the first time I felt Madonna made a complete fool of herself on stage. That whole 'a girlfriend that wanna fuck your boyfriend' crap... Madonna... hello... you're 50, not 15, but you damn sure sounded like a 15 year old when you asked the crowed that silly question. I could go on and on, but I'll try to keep it short. After Confessions the woman who wasn't that much into collaborations and duets all of a sudden seemed addicted to them. The trend setter became a trend follower. Everything to appeal to a younger crowd who wants nothing to do with her, and in doing so, she's ignoring and alienating people that did grow up with her. This is her failure. Had these collabs at least paid off I wouldn't have mind that much, but they don't! Maybe Justin did okay, but the others... Let's be honest folks, what is BIM doing for her career? NOTHING!!! It's not a hit by any means. I can't help but wonder why she keeps doing these kind of things. Yes, she should do whatever she wants. But do you guys really believe she is enjoying herself? The younger generation is only making jokes about her and will continue to do so. Why isn't she sticking to what she gained, a very loyal fanbase? Imagine how pathetic it would be if all of a sudden Bruce Springsteen would collaborate with Justin Bieber, releasing something like 'fuck you, I'm the Boss' or George Michael ft. Adam Lambert 'suck me, I'm gay'. Yes it would be hilarious, but they would be making fools of themselves. And I as a Madonna fan for almost 10 years hate to see her make a fool of herself. Yes, she achieved a lot, more than most of us ever will, but that does not mean she isn't making a fool of herself. We may enjoy these song but I think deep down inside most of us feel that she is making a fool of herself and hate it. She's our idol and we want her to shine, at least I do. But sorry... Hard Candy, Sticky and Sweet? MDNA? Rebel Heart? No matter how many times her last tours will (and continue to) be the best selling of all-time, she isn't really shining anymore. And no matter how many people claim Ray of Light is a boring album, GOD was she shining back then. She was on top and everyone wanted to follow her, but now... And this has nothing to do with me wanting a ROL pt. 2, since I don't want her to repeat herself. But that is exactly what she's doing for the last couple of years, repeating herself with desperate attempts to appeal to the younger generation. Again, this is not meant to bash Madonna, just sharing how I feel. I still really like most of the RH album, but let's keep it and say it as it is.
  16. Anybody heard this? I came across this yesterday before Madonna posted a clip of herself playing it on her guitar. I'm sure she's heard it and liked it. "Whole Lotta Love" is my favorite Led Zep track, and I'd love it she performed this mash up on the tour. I apologize if somebody's already posted this. https://vimeo.com/129186668

  19. MAdonna is on the US Weekly magazine Madonna: 25 things you don't know about me1. My all-time favorite Madonna song is "Bitch, I'm Madonna" - naturally. And my least favorite is "Material Girl." I never, ever want to hear it again! 2. My favorite city is Rome. It's so beautiful. The light is soothing and calming to me, the architecture is splendid and the food is incredible. I totally love it. 3. I can't stand mushrooms. Or escargot. Yuck! It's like snot. Expensive snot. 4. The person I idolize most is Paul Farmer. He's a doctor and activist who rebuilt the health-care system in Haiti even before the 2010 earthquake. He's done the same in Rwanda. 5. The last time I went grocery shopping was a year ago. 6. I miss absolutely nothing about growing up in Michigan. Nothing at all. 7. The person I most want to meet is President Obama. When the heck am I going to meet him? He just needs to invite me to the White House already. He probably thinks I'm too shocking to be there. I'm serious. If I was a little bit more demure . . . or if I was just married to Jay Z. Hey, if Jay would only take me as his second wife, then I'd score an invitation. 8. The one thing I'd never be caught dead wearing is a fur bikini. 9. My happiest moments were when my children (Lourdes, 18, Rocco, 14, David, 9, and Mercy, 9) were born and when I got married both times (to Sean Penn and Guy Ritchie). 10. My favorite part of my body is my eyes. My least is my dancer's feet. They are pretty disgusting. 11. I have found marriages don't last if you share bathrooms. The best thing about being single is there's no one to throw out of the bathroom when I want privacy. 12. The thing I miss least about marriage is being called "the wife." The worst. 13. My most fattening food indulgence is either pizza or french fries. Or potato chips, actually. Love them all. 14. The last time I was starstruck was when (French actor) Alain Delon called me while I was in Copenhagenduring my last tour. I was trying to get him to do an onstage cameo during a small show in Paris. I was shaking because I love him so much! I never met the dude and only knew him from movies. He was my ridiculous teenage crush. 15. I don't really watch TV. I only like two shows - True Detective and an Irish series called The Fall - and I'm not embarrassed about them. Many people say, "The Fall with Jamie Dornan," but I say, "The Fall with Gillian Anderson." She's so good. 16. The lifelong ambition I still want to fulfill is to go on a dream date with Drake - and only kiss him. 17. The most embarrassing moment of my life was falling off the stage - let me rephrase that, being choked off the stage by two little Japanese girls - at the 2015 Brit Awards. Extremely embarrassing! 18. The most beautiful thing I've ever seen was my daughter (Lourdes) playing the ukulele and singing "La Vie en Rose" for me. 19. My secret beauty ritual is to put ice on my eyes every morning. Ice, ice baby. 20. Speaking of, if I were trapped on a desert island with either (ex-boyfriend) Vanilla Ice or Dennis Rodman, I would pick Dennis. He has a better sense of humor. Plus, he could always wear my clothes. 21. The quality I most loathe in people is making assumptions. Not doing research, investigating or asking questions and just assuming something. Oh, that drives me bonkers. I also can't stand when I'm talking to someone and they're texting. My kids do it! It drives me up the wall. I always put my hand on their phones and ruin whatever they're doing. 22. I can't say what my worst date was, but there have been many. I'm a woman of the world, baby. One nonnegotiable attribute in a lover: He must not ever want to be away from me for more than two weeks at a time. 23. I have major claustrophobia. I don't like being stuck in small, enclosed spaces or in crowds. They freak me out. 24. My ideal day off is spent lying in bed all day - sleeping for a few hours, then waking up and watching old movies, like my favorite, Breathless. I eat in bed, have my children come and hang out with me, and then I fall back asleep. I never leave my bedroom. 25. My favorite memories of Michael Jackson were getting him to let down his guard. He was so shy. The time I succeeded most was after I got him drunk at the Ivy in Beverly Hills. I was driving my Mercedes and dared him to throw his sunglasses out the window. We couldn't stop laughing.
  20. I just want to share what happened to me this week. A friend of my mom told hey that his wife wanted her Madonna collection. (why?? haha) She bought everything to me for 100$ But you wont believe what it contains. The SEX Book A lot of vinyls from pre famous madonna songs to interviews That nude photoshoot she made before she was known It worth so much more than that!! They are so nice, the know I'm a huge fan so.. What a week! Also there's more to come!! I can't wait!! My collection takes a interesting turn this years!! I'm so happy Everything I got this week!!
  21. Interviewed by Edge Media Network, Madonna talked also about the possible video for Bitch, I’m Madonna. Check it out: MADONNA: I don’t know. I don’t want to make every video the same. But I did love the richness of that video (Living For Love). To me it felt like a painting that came to life. That’s what I was trying to do. But I wouldn’t want to do that for every video. Like when I do “Bitch, I’m Madonna,” it’s going to be a whole different aesthetic. ROUNDTABLE: Well, I’m glad that one’s getting a video! [GROUP LAUGHS] MADONNA: If Diplo has his way, there will be one. Source: drownedmadonna.com
