Madonna’s longtime Publicist Liz Rosenberg set to retire

1 Comment

Madonna relied on her, so did Cher.
Now, ever-quotable p.r. queen Liz Rosenberg exclusively tells us she’s abdicating her throne to retire.
“I think two centuries is long enough, don’t you?” quipped Rosenberg, who’s also repped Michael Bublé and Stevie Nicks and worked with Prince, Rod Stewart, Carly Simon and Ashford & Simpson.
Madonna portrayed her on “SNL” in 1992 — “the good ol’ days,” Rosenberg recalled.
She launched Liz Rosenberg Media in 2010 after nearly 40 years at Warner Bros. Records.
“It reminds me not to take it all too seriously,” Rosenberg said of her look — regularly wearing bunny ears on starry red carpets.
She’s looking forward to an extended break, but, “I’m going to consult, advise and protect my peeps from the likes of Page Six forever. I love them too much to do otherwise,” she said. “On a serious note, these people are part of my family. I could never step away completely. I envision myself like Sue Mengers, doing my work from a round bed with a lot of lip-shaped pillows.”

Amy Schumer To Open for Madonna at NYC Shows

Comments

A select group of comedians can claim that they’ve performed at sold-out arenas, but how many can say they’ve performed at sold-out arenas as Madonna’s opening act? Amy Schumer will earn that bragging right when she opens for the pop superstar during her three-night stay in New York City this September.
The Inside Amy Schumer star shared the news on Twitter on Thursday (June 18), writing, “Guess who auditioned for @Madonna and got the part?” She also shared an impossibly adorable clip of herself “auditioning” for the part — as in, singing along to “Like a Prayer” as a pre-teen.
Madonna will be joined by Schumer at Madison Square Garden on Sept. 16 and 17, as well as at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on Sept. 19. Tickets are on sale now.

Jonas Akerlund talks about “B*tch I’m Madonna” video

Comments

On Coming Up With the Concept
“Madonna called me about ‘Ghosttown.’ We hadn’t worked for a while because of different circumstances so when I heard all the songs [on Rebel Heart], I was very excited about ‘Ghosttown.’ I connected to it creatively. And, yeah, we enjoyed working together. I was supposed to start something else right after and that got pushed and she asked me to do ‘Bitch I’m Madonna.’ I saw it being so completely different from ‘Ghosttown,’ something a little bit less serious, just fun and crazy.”

On Preparing for the Shoot
“It became almost mathematic figuring out how to shoot it. We had a detailed shotlist. We also rehearsed, which is rare for a music video.”

On Filming Over One Night in New York City
“It’s always a challenge. Madonna is a celebrity enough for any music video. But with the nature of the song and the playfulness of it, we thought, ‘Let’s have some friends and family and go crazy with it!’ Everyone was spread out and their time is tight, but the good news is we all love Madonna and everyone wants to be involved. That made it really fun and playful.”

On Fighting Against Daylight
“On film shoots, you normally fight against losing daylight, but on this job we were fighting against the sun coming up. But you do see parts of it at the end, the sun on it’s way up.”

On Downtime on Set
“It was fun! That’s the only way to do it really. But it was technical. Everybody needed to be on their place and do their job. Everyone had cues and everyone was ready. And when we left the shoot, we thought, ‘If the video feels half as good as we feel, then it’s a homerun.’”

On Why He Loves Working With Madonna
“We’ve built trust between us through the years and she’s one of those people who really gets the best out of you. She wants to do something great. Every time we do videos, we want to change the world. A lot of artists don’t do that, but she does. She has that extra thing that makes her job worth it.”

Madonna’s Summer Anthem revealed

Comments

“When I think about what a summer song is, at first, I think of something celebratory and up – but that’s not quite really it, because I’ve dug some incredible summer songs that weren’t. But it defiantly has to have a phat groove. It’s not about Enya in the summertime, you know what I mean? For example, ‘Don’t You Want Me” by The Human League reminds me of the days of Danceteria, New York. I lived…
