A few words for Madonna…

A few words for Madonna…

Madonna, 52, has a new toyboy lover, 24-year old French backup dancer Brahim Zaibat, and her dad Tony Ciccone is not happy about it at all! In fact, he’s announced that “enough is enough” and has told her Brahim is not welcome in his house, according to sources.
Madonna has had differences with her dad for many hears. The time for him to be critical of her male friends was when she was 12, not now. And if Madonna were a 52-year-old man with a 20-something girlfriend, it’s doubtful that anyone would be saying “enough is enough.” Madonna is known to be a loving mother and this fling is hardly the most outrageous thing she’s done in her life. I think her dad is overreacting and needs to back off. At this stage, Madonna’s new beau is not an embarrassment, he’s just her latest fun project.

Jesus Luz ensures Madonna and he are still going strong
DJ Jesus Luz gave an exclusive interview to Revista Caras. He explained…

“Nothing has changed…
I’ve always been able to tell apart the woman from the myth. It’s more like it since we’ve met. I was not dumbfounded, staring at her and stuck for words.
Of course I have admired her, but not really changed my way of acting. I can see her as my girlfriend, without the label of star. She is a person like any other.
At the beginning of the relationship, there was too much attention focused on me, people treating me differently…
That freaks you out and wakes up a self- centered side in us. I have had moments when looking in the mirror and seeing myself as ‘the hot stuff’.
Now I’ve built my new family in Manhattan and all of us get along quite well.”

Once Again Piers Morgan says he’s irritated by Madonna
On Thursday, Piers Morgan revealed that the first guest that will sit down for an interview on his new CNN show, Piers Morgan Tonight, will be Oprah Winfrey.
He also mentioned Madonna once again…

“She’s kind of been an irritant in my life for 20 years, so I’ve banned her from the show.
It’s probably quite childish. Make the apology on CNN. Other than that, it’s a lifetime ban.
Lady Gaga’s half her age, twice as good looking, twice as talented and twice as hot, so why would I bother with Madonna.”

Morgan is apparently still peeved at Madonna for all the legal mumbo jumbo “her people” took him through during his stint as editor of Britain’s notorious News of the World tabloid.

New book on Anna Sui Mentions Madonna
A book on American fashion designer Anna Sui which, she says, is an autobiography in pictures, mentions Madonna.

Sui was there with Madonna when she wore a sheer black babydoll at the Gaultier show, linked by mutual friend and top photographer Steven Meisel.
“She came out with a coat on, and I couldn’t wait to see what she was wearing. I thought it would be some outrageous outfit, and then she said, ‘Anna, I have a surprise for you.’”
Madonna also wore Sui when she was photographed by Meisel in 1992 for Vogue.

I can’t believe I made that joke.”

The 250 best albums of Q’s lifetime
Q Magazine listed The 250 best albums of Q’s lifetime (1986-2011) and we must admit this chart is a total mess.
Only 2 Madonna albums in it (at #175 and #214), while Lady Gaga’s first effort, The Fame is charted at #40, surpassing the likes of Madonna or George Michael’s whole career, but also most of Prince’s or Michael Jackson music and many many more…

214: Like a Prayer
Madonna at her most Earth-conquering and musically fearless.

175: Ray of Light
Still her best work to date, Ray of Light was also Madonna’s smartest career move; combining traditional pop hooks with up-to-the-second dance music. Thirty-nine years young, it made her a next-generation pop star.
Key Track: Ray of Light

In a storied career as am music journalist, I’ve played darts with Cher, carried Bono’s ghetto-blaster, and asked the tiny one out of Kasabian to “run along – can’t you see I’m trying to talk to Kasabian?” But does anyone want to hear this stuff? Do they fuck? They want to know about the Christmas pudding I gave Madonna.
It was Christmas 1997. I was interviewing Madonna for Q, as she unveiled Ray of Light, and I’d noted a Times interview where the writer was advised to take her a present. This had struck me as shockingly craven, ingratiating and… not a bad idea at all.
Madonna, then 39, was deep in a touchy-fely phase shaped by 14 months of motherhood, emotional stocktaking and mix’n’match religion, but she was as she always is, a tough nut. So I can only assume it was my gift of a Harrods’ Christmas pud that spared me a karate chop when, our interview still in the sparring stage, I described Carlos Leon (daughter Lourdes’s bio-dad) as an alleged “spunk donor”. A week after Christmas, Madonna rang me at home to clarify one or two points. Match Of The Day was on, and my missus answered the phone. “It’s that Madonna for you,” she announced. As the fame-fuelled madness of her life was further reviewed, Madonna sighed: “I guess I won. But it’s not terribly much fun, being a rebel or a pioneer.” At the mention of the pudding, however, she brightened. “It was delicious,” she purred.
And – I reflect as I dine out on it for the trillionth time – worth every penny.
