Singer Kavana ignored Madonna’s phone call
Can you imagine missing a phone call from pop superstar Madonna? Well that once happened to Middleton singer Kavana.
The Lucky Star and Into The Groove singer was keen to meet Kav, who found fame in the 1990s with hits including I Can Make You Feel Good and MFEO.
But he ignored her call because her number showed up as unavailable on his mobile phone. He found out it was Madonna calling when he listened back to a message she left on his phone, mocking him for missing the call.
Speaking to Gaby Roslin on the ITV morning show Lorraine, Kav said…
I was at my mum and dad’s place 12 years ago.
I became friends with a director that knew Madonna.
My phone rang and it was an unavailable call.
I thought ‘I don’t need to answer that’.
It was Madonna.
She said “Hi Kavana. We were going to invite you round here tonight but you didn’t answer the phone call. So long sucker.”
Jenny McCarthy crashed Madonna’s Oscar party
Jenny McCarthy and her friends turned up to the ‘Material Girl’ hitmaker’s annual Academy Awards bash a few years ago in their pyjamas after enjoying six bottles of champagne.
Recalling the night, she said…
Me and my girl friends and my sister were hanging at my house in the valley watching the show and I don’t usually watch the Academy Awards because it’s a reminder of everything you failed at, especially if you’re in this business. But my friends thought it would be a good idea to watch the Academy Awards whilst getting completely lit.
So we sat around and between five of us, I think it was, we went through about six bottles of champagne … And one of my friends said, ‘Hey, Madonna has an after party every year at Guy Ritchie’s house. Why don’t we crash it?’
I had one too many and I had confidence like I’ve never had before. And I looked at my girl friends and my sister and we were in our pyjamas. We looked like hot messes; just gross. And it was midnight at this point and I said, ‘Screw it. Let’s do it!’
The group thought they’d try their luck and were shocked when a bodyguard let them in.
She told Entertainment Weekly…
We drove to Guy Ritchie’s house and we get in this huge line. We get to the guy and guys surrounding him with clipboards and I rolled down the window and I go, ‘Jenny McCarthy’. And he goes, ‘I don’t see your name.’ …
And he says, ‘How many people?’ And I say, ‘Just six.’ Now most people can only bring one person … and this isn’t a party where celebrities bring their friends. And the guy goes, ‘Just go.’ So my friend hit the gas pedal and was like, ‘F**k yes!’ So we go in the house and every single person is a huge celebrity.
30-minute Madonna Fireworks Tribute
Madonna by Yoo Hyun
Using an X-acto knife and tweezers, Korean artist Yoo Hyun hand carves intricate cut-paper portraits that feature the likes of movie stars, world leaders, and musicians. Up close, Hyun’s pieces look like abstract designs, but from afar they read as photo-realistic depictions of his subjects. He achieves this by incorporating a zig-zag pattern into his compositions, where each line is specially cut to build a three dimensional-looking form.
Check it out…
Once a portrait is done, its negative space is see-through. That means Hyun can layer his handiwork onto any surface or pattern, making the same piece look radically different, depending on its backdrop. A black ink-splattered background is a popular choice, but sometimes Hyun goes for bold colors and illuminates the portraits in blue and red.
You can find Hyun’s cut outs, works in progress, and inspirations on Facebook, on his Instagram, @yoo.hyun. If you want to see close-up detail shots of his pieces, check out his @yoohyun_artist account. There, his artwork is blown up and tiled, one piece over many photos, allowing you to examine each section of his work.
