Madonna’s clothing regret

Pop superstar Madonna has one regret about her new clothing line the English Roses Collection – she’s too old to wear it.
The Material Girl recently launched the line, based on her children’s books, and the mother-of-two says she’d love to be able to wear some of the items herself.
She says, “I wish I was eight years old again and could fit into an English Roses outfit. I have tried to squeeze into one of my daughter’s shirts and I looked ridiculous. No fair!”

Gwen Stefani influenced by Madonna

For her solo debut, Love, Angel, Music, Baby, out November 23rd, No Doubt frontwoman Gwen Stefani cast her net wide, seizing the opportunity to work with a vast array of artists.
“The whole idea was to collaborate,” says Stefani. “To do a solo record means trying to pour my heart out, which I feel like I already do in No Doubt. This is more of an art project. I wanted to play different roles and work with a ton of people.”
Expect hip-hop beats from Dr. Dre and the Neptunes, as well as OutKast’s Andre 3000. Dallas Austin (Pink, TLC) and Nellee Hooper (Massive Attack, Soul II Soul) give some tracks a dance feel, and the album’s New Wave sound comes by way of Depeche Mode’s Martin Gore, ex-Eurythmics Dave Stewart and New Order.
“I knew exactly what my influences were — Club Nouveau, Lisa Lisa, Prince, New Order, the Cure, early Madonna,” says Stefani. “Everybody was under strict instructions.”
The album’s first single, “What You Waiting For?,” is set to hit airwaves this month. And Stefani will make her Hollywood debut in December, when she plays Jean Harlow alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in Martin Scorsese’s Howard Hughes biopic The Aviator.
