In Brief : Piers Morgan, Lil Wayne, Madonna World Tour, MDNA, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Charts and more…

Guy Oseary and Piers Morgan: A picture is worth a thousand words
Poor Piers Morgan, who has tried getting attention the past couple of months for his talk show by bashing Madonna, is at it again.

On Twitter he posted…

Welcome to Twitter @MadonnaMDNAday – you’re still banned from my show. Love Piers x

To which Guy Oseary replied…

Owned!

LMFAO and Martin Solveig at the MDNA tour
We already know LMFAO are going to open for Madonna in London and Nice.
Now Live Nation UK just revealed that Martin Solveig will join them in London at the Hyde Park concert. He will also be opening for Madonna at the three different dates in Italy.

Madonna Luvin’ and not Leavin’
Madonna’s legend on Billboard’s Dance/Club Play Songs chart grows this week, as “Give Me All Your Luvin’,” featuring Nicki Minaj and M.I.A., rises 2-1 to become her 41st leader on the list. She pulls further ahead of runner-up Janet Jackson, who’s banked 19 toppers.

The coronation adds yet another honor to Madonna’s illustrious chart history.

If we include the Material Girl’s leading entries on other active, current-based, domestic Billboard charts, her chart-topping total swells to a whopping and even 150 No. 1s.

Here are Madonna’s No. 1 sums on the following lists:

41, Dance/Club Play Songs
33, Hot Dance Singles Sales
15, Hot Singles Sales
12, Billboard Hot 100
9, Radio Songs
9, Music Video Sales
7, Billboard 200
7, Dance/Mix Show Airplay
5, Adult Contemporary
3, Internet Albums
2, Digital Albums
2, Digital Songs
2, Hot Digital Tracks
1, Pop Songs
1, Dance/Electronic Albums
1, Tastemaker Albums

Mirroring the tempo of so many of her hits, when it comes to topping Billboard charts, Madonna doesn’t appear to be slowing down.

She could reign again soon on Dance/Club Play Songs, where “Girl Gone Wild” bounds 46-20 as the chart’s Greatest Gainer, indicating potential for the track to become Madonna’s 42nd No. 1 on the tally within weeks.

And, next week’s release of the Material Girl’s 12th studio album of new material, “MDNA,” could lead to No. 1 arrivals on multiple surveys the following week.

Madonna and Quentin Tarantino Gang Bang
In our MDNA review we wrote that “Gang Bang” reminded us of Quentin Tarentino’s amazing “Death Proof” movie.
During the Larry Flick and Jimmy Fallon interview, Madonna said she was inspired by Quentin Tarantino for the track and even told she’d like for him to direct a video.

On the MDNA twitter day the subject was brought up again and a new TarantinoForGangBang Facebook page has been created.

Do you want Quentin Tarentino to direct Madonna’s video for the track “Gang Bang”?
Join the page and spread the word!

“Girl Gone Wild” goes wrestling
“Girl Gone Wild” is the official theme song for WWE’s Wrestelmania 28!
This is huge news for MDNA, knowing that…

WWE broadcasts to approximately 12 million fans per week in the U.S.
The previous WrestleMania XXVII grossed more than $6.6 million and generated more than 1 million pay-per-view buys.
“WrestleMania” was the #1 non sponsored worldwide trend on Twitter the Sunday WrestleMania XXVII took place.

Have a look at the video, around the 35-second mark…

Gene Simmons disses Madonna
KISS has never been inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
At a recent press conference where KISS announced their joint summer tour with Mötley Crüe, KISS bassist/co-vocalist Gene Simmons told Rolling Stone…

It’s become a joke. We’ve been thinking about it and the answer is simply, ‘We’ll just buy it and fire everybody.
In all seriousness for the fans, for something to be called Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is such an insult to Madonna, Blondie and Tone Loc. Who the fuck knows what other disco act is in there? It’s an insult to them because they don’t get to be in the ‘Dance Hall of Fame,’ because that’s what they do.
They’re legitimate dance, disco artists. They don’t belong in rock and roll.

Music is so universal and If there’s any chance that through my performance I can bring further attention and enlightenment to honor the peace efforts in the Middle East and help people come together, it would be an honor for me.
