Madonna asked to credit Eyelash Designer

Pop superstar Madonna is being asked to credit lash designer Sol Rafael or return the diamond-trimmed mink eye accessories she wore on a chat show in October (05).
A source close to Rafael tells America’s In Touch magazine that the designer worked with Madonna’s stylist when the singer appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman.
But she has yet to return the fluttering lashes.
The source quotes Rafael as saying, “If she’s going to keep them it would be nice to have her acknowledge me as the designer.”

Whose Retro Madonna Tribute?

Madonna has worn this lass’ name on a t-shirt in the past, so at a post-Christmas trip to the sales she repayed the tribute.
But just who has put Madge’s name across their ample chest?
Of course, it’s Britney.
We bet you’ve never worn the name of one of your mates across your boobs, but then in showbiz-ville a bit of mutual back-slapping is par for the course.
Madonna wore a rhinestone Britney t-shirt for her 2001 live gigs and then the pair shared that onstage kiss at the 2003 MTV awards.
They teamed up for Britney’s single Me Against The Music and rumour has it Madge has got Britney interested in Kabbalah.
It looks like the self-love is set to continue too as thrifty Britney hit the post-Crimble sales with a stretchy, Madonna sweater over her generous post-baby boobs.
She must have snapped up the pink top at retro store as it comes from Madonna’s 1985 Virgin Tour and Britters would only have been four at the time.
But what did Brit snap up in the Malibu sales? More Madonna memorabilia?

Madonna Join NAB’s “Hear It Here” Campaign

Madonna and Good Charlotte have signed on for the NAB’s “Radio: You Hear It Here First”? campaign to promote terrestrial radio.
Launched in January of 2005, the initiative features testimonials from newly emerging and established recording artists, describing how AM and FM radio played a key role in advancing their careers.
“Madonna is a superstar with an unparalleled following,” said David J. Field, president/CEO of Entercom Communications and chairman of the NAB Radio Board. “It would be difficult to find a more effective spokesperson to communicate free, local radio’s strengths.”
The Hear It Here First spots air voluntarily on radio stations nationwide. Throughout 2005, every major radio company aired the ads, donating more than $40 million of airtime to the effort.

Pop Candy – Top 100 People of 2005

#6 Madonna. For the 472nd time in her career, the dancehall diva bounded back into the spotlight with a new album and a new, Jane Fonda- and Farrah Fawcett-inspired look. She may be older now, and her lyrics may get nutty sometimes, but I still have feelings for Madge. How could I not? For more than 20 years, I’ve been dancing to her music in my bedroom while wearing high heels and socks.

Madonna hopes Elton will be ‘happier married’

Madonna has hit back at newlywed sir Elton John after he criticised her for not attending his pre-wedding party on Monday.
British newspaper the Daily Mirror reported John labelled the Material Girl a “miserable cow” after she snubbed his star-studded bachelor party at London nightspot Too2Much, which was held ahead of the Rocket Man hitmaker’s civil partnership ceremony with David Furnish yesterday.
In response, Madonna’s spokeswoman Liz Rosenberg tells, “Madonna wishes Elton all the best, and hopes married life will make him a happier person.”
