In Brief: D’Angelo, Garbage, Girl Gone Wild, MDNA Tour contest, Chocolate, Israeli fans and more…

Israeli fans love Madonna
As part of their excitement for Madonna’s upcoming MDNA Tour, which opens in Tel Aviv, some Israeli fans decided to make this funny tribute video clip and dedicate it to all Madonna’s fans around the world.

D’Angelo thinks Madonna’s rude
In his first major print interview in several years, D’Angelo talked to GQ magazine about Madonna.

When Madonna turned 39, she asked D’Angelo to sing “Happy Birthday” at her party. According to one press report, Madonna sat on his lap and French-kissed him. In fact, two sources say that ultimately D’Angelo rebuffed her advances at another gathering not long after. At that event, the sources say, Madonna walked over and told a woman sitting next to D, “I think you’re in my seat.” The woman got up. Madonna sat down and told him, “I’d like to know what you’re thinking.” To which D replied, “I’m thinking you’re rude.”

Shirley Manson from Garbage sings Erotica
Garbage is currently touring with their latest album “Not Your Kind of People” and pays homage to Madonna. Right before their song “#1 Crush”, Shirley Manson sings a few lines from Madonna’s Erotica.

Have a look at their performance in New York…

MDNA Tour Chocolate
Tony “The Pastryarch” Albanese has made an original Madonna MDNA Tour chocolate piece.

Posing with the edible chocolate piece I made free hand of Madonna’s MDNA Tour promo photo. I had one shot to get it right, there’s no erasing or starting over with chocolate! It is accented with luster dust and pearl dust. More of my cake photos and videos can be seen on www.facebook.com/thepastryarch and twitter.com/#!/thepastryarch. I can also be seen on season 1 of “Cake Boss”.
