Madonna dedicated a song to the Pope in Philadelphia

Madonna gave her seal of approval to Pope Francis I during a gig in Philadelphia last night, making several references to him throughout the evening – including “I’ve been excommunicated from the Catholic Church three times. It shows the Vatican really cares” and joking that the Pope was “stalking” her, as he has been in New York at the same time as her recently, and was planning a trip to Philadelphia. “”Either he’s a copycat or he’s secretly in love with me,” she said.

She then dedicated a ukulele-led version of Edith Piaf’s ‘La Vie en Rose’ to the pontiff, saying “Since Popey-wopey is on his way over here, I want to dedicate this song to him because it’s a love song, and I firmly believe that love does make the world go ’round. Honestly, I don’t think there’s that much difference between me and the Pope.”

Madonna’s DanceOn Strikes Distribution Deal With Go90

As more music streaming services and social media apps announce their transition into original content, the battle for positioning remains unpredictable.

Power players like Apple Music and Spotify have yet to make a very definitive shift beyond music sharing and discovery to solidify their identity as digital content providers. Snapchat has experienced notable success, as more brands and media partners experiment with different formats that tap into the existing user experience. Netflix and Hulu have mastered their market, creating network-caliber programming designed for the second-screen generation.

While the landscape is still evolving, and such uncertainty builds anticipation, it also presents an opportunity for thriving digital media and social entertainment platforms with an established niche and to remain steps ahead of emerging trends. Announcing a new partnership with mobile entertainment app go90, DanceOn is expecting this move to place its premiere entertainment-focused platform ahead of the pack. read more →
