Marina & the Diamonds on Madonna

“She’s a really diverse artist. I think creatively she’s obviously very talented. She doesn’t have to define herself. Generally she’s pop, but she’s really unlike any other musician out there in that her albums only form a small part of her youthful identity.”


Elton John: The Feud with Madonna is Over

Sir Elton John and David Furnish sat down for an exclusive interview with “Extra’s” Terri Seymour, in which they revealed that there is no longer a feud with Madonna.

John explained, “We were in a restaurant in France in the summertime. She came in, and I sent over a note. She was very gracious. I apologized profusely because what I said should never have appeared in public. She accepted our apology, and then we bought her dinner. That’s over and done with.”

John said Madonna was glad to move on. “She was fantastic. She was just like, ‘Okay, let’s get a move on.’”

Furnish added, “We don’t believe in putting negativity out in the world, both of us were embarrassed when all that stuff came out.”

Madonna’s Brother Arrested

Anthony Gerard Ciccone, better known as Madonna’s older brother, is in trouble with the law once again. Ciccone’s most recent brush with the law came Monday night in a bar in Traverse City.

While his sister is a multi-millionaire, he’s homeless and has a history of drinking problems, and locals say he’s known to bum around from bar to bar in Traverse City. That’s what police say he was doing Monday when he allegedly got into a fight with a female police officer who tried to get him to leave a bathroom after what was described as a long night of boozing. Police say Ciconne had an outstanding warrant for trespassing.

Ciconne was also reportedly injured in the struggle and when taken to the hospital, his blood alcohol level was a .40, nearly 5 times the legal limit.

Ciconne is to be charged with a felony for resisting a police officer…..and is being held in jail without bond.


Madonna’s First Ever “Fashion Evolution” Pop-up Exhibit

Madonna, Material Girl and Macy’s are offering consumers the ultimate insider experience with the unveiling of a thrilling one day pop-up fashion exhibit, “Madonna’s Fashion Evolution” at Macy’s in Century City, California. On Thursday, April 25th, from 6-8pm, several of Madonna’s most iconic fashion items including her infamous Jean Paul Gaultier cone bra corset from her Blonde Ambition Tour, her Reinvention Tour ensemble by Christian Lacroix , her “Like A Virgin” wedding dress, and other legendary pieces will be on display for fans to get a firsthand view of the evolution of Madonna’s fashion. The exhibit will take place surrounded by the hugely successful fashion forward Material Girl line that Madonna created exclusively for Macy’s with her daughter, Lola.

Madonna personally handpicked eight of her favorite costumes from a vast archive of tour costumes and her personal collection for the one day pop-up exhibition. Madonna and the Material Girl team went to great efforts to gather these iconic pieces for the exhibition, which marks the first time these items have been displayed together for the public to view. The cone bustiers were flown in from a Jean Paul Gaultier exhibit in Amsterdam, her “Like A Virgin” wedding dress is on loan from the legendary Hard Rock, while the remaining items are from Madonna’s personal archives.

“The pop-up exhibit at Macy’s perfectly exemplifies the inspiration and spirit of the Material Girl line and will give my fans a great opportunity to see the evolution of my style over the years,” commented Madonna.

Arianne Phillips , Madonna’s longtime collaborator, styled and helped to curate the exhibit. About the “Like A Virgin” wedding dress Madonna wore to the MTV VMA’s in 1984, Phillips commented, “This was one of the most shocking, liberating and influential moments in pop culture/fashion history.” “Fashion has never been the same. Bold and unforgiving, humorous and shocking, we can depend on Madonna to challenge us to rethink fashion. Madonna has taken sacred garments like the wedding dress and religious embellishments, and re-contextualized them,” she added.

“It’s a magical thing to bring all these iconic pieces together in one place,” said Dari Marder chief marketing officer at Iconix Brand Group, Inc. “This will show customers how influential Madonna has been to fashion and how that influences Material Girl today,” she added. read more →
