Darren Hayes is ‘frightened’ by Madonna

14 Comments

Darren Hayes has admitted that he finds Madonna’s overt displays of sexuality “frightening”.

The former Savage Garden star watched the pop queen on her most recent tour and was shocked by a sequence in which she pole-danced to her 1986 hit ‘Like A Virgin’.

He told Attitude: “I adore Madonna, of course. But the moral dilemma I have from watching Madonna and then watching something like The Pussycat Dolls is that their sexuality is almost a little bit frightening.

“She sets up the premise that she is the master. When she got on a pole on her last tour it kind of worked because she wasn’t the object of everyone’s desire. ”

Madonna’s Adoption Makes Progress

Comments

Madonna’s adoption of Malawi-born David Banda is taking baby steps in the right direction.

Malawi’s Child Welfare Services Director, Penstone Kilembe, was given permission to visit her Madgesty andobserve the family after initially being refused an exit visa. The refusal, he claimed, could’ve hindered Madonna and Guy’s efforts to adopt Banda. Kilembe arrives in London September 4.

“There has been a change of mind by my government minister,” Kilembe said. “I am expected to spend two weeks.”

Madonna is “looking forward to this so her adoption process is not hampered,” Kilembe told Reuters Tuesday.

Mr. and Mrs. Ritchie were granted temporary custody of David after his biological father Yohane Banda, placed his son in an orphanage after the death of his wife (and David’s mother).

Madonna is top bad girl gone good

2 Comments

Madonna has topped a new list of bad girls gone good, beating off Drew Barrymore and Mary J. Blige.

Editors at In Touch magazine have crowned the Material Girl as the ultimate reformed woman in their upcoming issue.

They write, “Madonna is a devoted mom these days, but back in the ’80s and ’90s, she was every mother’s worst nightmare! “Whether expressing herself in racy videos or posing nude for her Sex book, she was determined to shock.”

The top five:
1. Madonna
2. Drew Barrymore
3. Mary J. Blige
4. Fergie
5. Christina Aguilera

Is Justin Madonna’s New MTV Boy-Toy?

Comments

from E!Online :

Justin Timberlake and Madonna!

Are the two really teaming up to perform together at MTV’s Video Music Awards next month in Las Vegas?

An MTV rep just told me, “It’s a fantastic rumor.”? Reps for Timberlake and Madonna did not comment.

Here’s what I’m hearing: There are no concrete plansyet.

Producers, a source tells me, have spoken to J.T. about it. And the idea has been presented to Madonna. “She is interested,”? my source reports.

Madge should be interested. There’s no one better at transforming herself into what people want right now than the original Material Girl. A hookup with the 26-year-old Timberlake could mean only one thing: more fans!

Four years ago, Madonna made international headlines by kissing Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera onstage at the VMAs.

The Beat Goes On – new song lyrics

The Beat Goes On
by Madonna and Pharrell

Here comes the sun
(here comes the sun)
I’m tired of coming undone
(oh, coming undone)
There’s been so much darkness
Too much of the time
I think its a sign
(must be a sign)

Here comes the rain
(Here comes the rain)
Wash away all the pain
(wash away the pain)
Coming together, going apart
I want you to stay
(Hope you wanna stay)

Always the bride’s maid, never the bride
Two steps behind, you’ve got too much pride
Always supporting, never the star
Get it together, cause the beat goes on

On and on the beat goes
On and on the beat goes
On and on the beat goes
On and on the beat goes
On and on the beat goes
On and on the beat goes
On and on the beat goes
On and on the beat goes

Here comes my hand…
(here comes your hand)
Take it while you can…
(take it while you can)
Ill throw you some rope
if it will give you hope
want you to understand….
(understand)

Here comes your smile
(here comes your smile)
Hope it stays for awhile
(stays for awhile)
You know its contagious
It might sound outrageous
But I feel so alive…
(feel so alive)

Always the bride’s maid, never the bride
Two steps behind, you’ve got too much pride
Always supporting, never the star
Get it together, cause the beat goes on

On and on the beat goes
On and on the beat goes
On and on the beat goes
On and on the beat goes
On and on the beat goes
On and on the beat goes
On and on the beat goes
On and on the beat goes

I can’t keep waiting for you
I can’t keep waiting [take it down]
Anticipating with you
You keep me Waiting [take it up]
I can’t keep waiting for you
I can’t keep waiting [take it down]
Anticipating with you
You keep me Waiting

Always the bride’s maid, never the bride
Two steps behind, you’ve got too much pride
Always supporting, never the star
Get it together, cause the beat goes on

On and on the beat goes
On and on the beat goes
On and on the beat goes [take it down]
On and on the beat goes
On and on the beat goes [take it up]
On and on the beat goes
On and on the beat goes [take it down]
On and on the beat goes

INSTRUMENTATION

I can’t keep waiting for you
I can’t keep waiting [take it down]
Anticipating with you
You keep me Waiting [take it up]
I can’t keep waiting for you
I can’t keep waiting [take it down]
Anticipating with you

Cause see the beat goes on”

Liz Rosenberg comments on Madonna’s contract with WMG

1 Comment

Madonna is considering leaving her current label Warner Music Group (WMG) after her next two albums are released, her publicist told FOXNews.com.

Among the alternatives the pop music icon is considering is a deal with Los Angeles-based Live Nation, Britain’s leading promotions company and venue owner, said Liz Rosenberg, who represents Madonna and also works at WMG.

Music industry insiders have estimated such a move could be worth $100 million to the Material Girl.

But before any new contracts with Live Nation, WMG or any other company can be arranged, Rosenberg said, Madonna will release her forthcoming and as-yet untitled album set to come out later this year or early next and a greatest hits album with WMG, the label she has been with throughout her career.

“Once that’s done, Madonna is a free agent,” Rosenberg said. “Her management is considering a move to another company.”

The news comes only weeks after WMG stock dropped to an all-time low, dipping below $10 to $9.79 a share, as reported by FOXNews.com’s 411 on Aug. 7.
