The pop superstar was in the audience for a performance of the musical in New York City on Saturday (18Apr15), when she was reportedly called out by star/writer Lin-Manuel Miranda as he hosted a charity auction at the end of the show.
Taking to Twitter.com to blast an unnamed, famous audience member following the show, he wrote, “Tonight was the first time I asked stage management NOT to allow a celebrity (who was texting all through Act 2) backstage #noselfieforyou.”
The message was later deleted, but editors at the New York Daily News reported that Miranda was referring to Madonna.
However, Liz Rosenberg is now clearing up the reports, saying, “It’s not true. She was invited backstage four different times. She texted post show when they were doing their fundraising pitch. Madonna had already made a generous donation.”
The Like A Virgin hitmaker posted a picture alongside one of the late politician’s famous quotes – “If you set out to be liked, you would be prepared to compromise on anything at any time, and you would achieve nothing” – and added the caption, “Thank you Margaret Thatcher! #unapolgetic #rebelheart (sic)”.
After posting the image, the star faced a backlash from followers who slammed her for lauding Thatcher, who was infamous for her divisive policies, which prompted both praise and vitriol following her death in 2013.
Madonna did not comment on the controversy but removed the photo and later posted a racy image of herself in underwear surrounded by roses, alongside the caption, “He sent me roses begging my forgiveness. I said I’d think about it. These guys…”
Madonna is the all-time pop music champion. She’s won seven Grammys, sold over 300 million records and just released Rebel Heart, her 13th album. She’s also a sex icon that pushed boundaries long before Lady Gaga or Miley Cyrus. Look no further than her artful nude pictorial in the September 1985 issue of Playboy to see Madonna’s pursuit of sexual freedom.
For the upcoming May issue of Playboy Martin H.M. Schreiber, one of the photographers who shot the Material Girl for the 1985 pictorial, returns to the magazine with a feature titled “Madonna: The Lost Nudes.” In 1979 Madonna posed for an ethereal photo shoot in his Manhattan studio, before she became the pop diva we know today. These images are collected in a book showcasing Schreiber’s work called A Retrospective 1966-2014 (Duncan Meeder/Leica Store Lisse, Netherlands), which will hit bookshelves this June.

How do you dress Madonna—that inveterate fashion changeling, that master of reinvention, that brightly burning star now on her third decade of pop icon-hood—for her next move? How about her next video, in which she busts many a move? In the case of B. Akerlund, who styled the Queen of Pop for her video for “Ghosttown,” premiering tomorrow from her March release Rebel Heart—which features such tracks as “Bitch I’m Madonna” (as if you needed reminding)—you take the runways’ military-cum-bandleader-meets-Victoriana trend and you run long. Really long.
“The silhouette and feel is real rock ‘n’ roll,” says Akerlund of the Chrome Hearts leather greatcoat replete with billowing train. (And top hat. And cane.) “It’s always inspiring to work on a special project with an artist as creative as Madonna,” said Laurie Lynn Stark, co-owner of Chrome Hearts, the line also behind the painstakingly crafted topper. As for Her Madgesty? “It was magical,” the musician said via email, “it perfectly represented the vibe that we wanted to bring to the video.” And there you have it. When in doubt: Go for drama.
In 22 hours: Be here at 10am PST tomorrow for the world premiere of Madonna’s Ghosttown video! #meerkat http://mrk.tv/1xXNgOt
