Controversial film-maker Oliver Stone has dismissed Madonna’s performance in 1996 musical Evita as inadequate, because she could only play the historical figure like a “hooker”.
The Oscar-winning director, who had long dreamed of making the EVA PERON biopic, admits he made his “biggest mistake” when he failed to see his ambition through.
And Stone was less than impressed when Alan Parker, who ended up directing Evita, cast pop queen Madonna in the title role.
He says, “The thing about Eva Peron was that she was a hooker and a saint.
“Madonna could do the hooker but not the saint.”

Madonna plans to hit the clubs for her upcoming summer tour, because according to her tour director, it wouldn’t be the disco queen’s kind of dance floor if it wasn’t a bit confessional too.
“A typical Madonna show is quite produced,” said Jamie King, who has been the creative director who has been the creative director for Madonna’s last two tours. “She. “She likes things large, she likes things theatrical, but this time, being that [Confessions on a Dance Floor] is an intimate album, we want to try to make people have an intimate experience as well as a big produced theatrical experience. So look for us doing some small venues, some smaller venues.”
To achieve that intimacy, Madonna will have to be able to get close to everyone, so the tour is also going to be more interactive. “I would like to put her as close to her people her fans, her dancers, her fellow supporters as possible,” King said.
While that effect was achieved via the pit and the catwalk on her Reinvention Tour, don’t expect Madonna to merely reinvent that tour and trot out all the hits. The set list has been confirmed, King said, and it’s definitely Confessions-heavy, with “some familiar faces” popping up from the past two dance-themed videos, “Hung Up” and “Sorry.” That said, there will be a few yet-to-be-revealed fan favorites on the set list as well.
“Listen, I love old Madonna songs I don’t know one person who doesn’t,” King said. “But we want to focus mainly on this album. I think people love it and they want to hear it, so expect a lot of the songs from Confessions on a Dance Floor.”
Tour dates have yet to be announced, but rehearsals begin March 1.

Everyone knows that Madonna has beautiful skin! Lately our favorite fair skinned diva has been letting the public in on one of her beauty secrets! Madonna has become so fond of her Oxygen Treatments that she keeps an oxygen machine in each of her homes, she told Harpar’s Bazaar Magazine. Madonna.com sat down with Madonna’s personal Oxygen Treatment Facialist to find out more about this fountain of youth!
Madonna.com: What is an O2 Intraceutical Oxygen Treatment?
Michelle Peck: The 02 Intraceutical Treatment is what I give to Madonna when I give her what is commonly known as an oxygen facial. The treatment reduces the appearance of fine lines, improves skin tone and provides an instant firming and lift by using hyperbaric technology to saturate the skin with oxygen and infuse a rejuvenating hyaluronic acid serum.
Madonna.com: How does a Intraceutical Oxygen Treatment work and what does it accomplish.
Michelle Peck: I begin each treatment with a product from our line called Atoxlene, it is our natural solution to fine lines, made of hexapeptides and amino acids, I infuse it into Madonna’s skin using hyperbaric technology which is simply oxygen applied under pressure. I concentrate the treatment around the eyes, the nasal labial fold and between the eyebrows. Then I move on to our infamous rejuvenating treatment which leaves the skin completely hydrated, plumped, glowing, tightened and lifted ready for the application of make-up. While Madonna takes exceptional care of her porcelain skin, I always recommend this treatment before & after air travel as it can be so dehydrating.
Madonna.com: How did you and the oxygen system come to work with Madonna?
Gina Brooke is Madonna’s make-up artist and is known to use the best and most innovative products on the market. Gina discovered, after intensive research, O2 Intraceuticals is unlike any other oxygen skin treatment existing today. Gina believes taking care of one’s skin is the foundation to beautiful make-up. Gina introduced me and the Hyperbaric Oxygen Technology to Madonna, who has been a devoted fan of the treatment ever since!
