Iron Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson: Lady Gaga is way better than Madonna
Iron Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson even told Corus Radio that “Lady Gaga is way better than Madonna”…

I think she’s great, and I agree with her – she’s not the next Madonna. She’s way better than that. Because, first of all, she can sing, she’s got a belter of a voice, and she’s a really good instrumentalist. She’s got a great sense of drama. And anybody that could turn up to an awards ceremony dressed as a bacon sandwich gets my vote. I mean, she’s great.

Sean Penn introduced his daughter to Madonna
Usually it’s kind of a weird thing when you meet someone who used to have a big love thing with your dad, but when that person is Madonna, it instantly becomes cool.
Sean Penn introduced his daughter, Dylan Penn, to his ex-wife Madonna after the superstar’s NYC concert on Thursday, Sept. 17.

The Oscar winner and his model daughter, 24, whose mom is Penn’s second wife, Robin Wright, were spotted in the audience at Madonna’s Rebel Heart tour stop at Madison Square Garden (the second of three Big Apple dates) and a source confirms to Us Weekly that Dylan and the Grammy winner, 57, met for the first time backstage at the show…

She had never met Madonna before, but Madonna was really sweet to her. Madonna and Sean have stayed close friends over the years, so of course she embraced Dylan.
