Bon Jovi Apologises To Madonna

Jon Bon Jovi has apologised to Madonna after wrongly accusing her of exploiting her children by proudly displaying them at movie premieres.
The Livin’ On A Prayer hitmaker berated the pop superstar for allowing Lourdes, nine, and Rocco, five, to attend public events, advising her to shield them from media intrusion.
But the 43-year-old soon realised his mistake after the Material Girl hit back, insisting her children had never attended a single film opening.
He says, “I put my foot in my mouth recently with a comment about Madonna. Let me apologise because I don’t know the woman.”

Fogel To Produce Upcoming Madonna Trek

Arthur Fogel, president of TNA International, Live Nation’s global touring division, has nailed down the promotion rights for the as-yet-unannounced 2006 tour by Madonna in support of her album “Confessions on the Dancefloor,” according to sources.
Fogel, who produced Madonna’s ReInvention tour in 2004 and Drowned World tour in 2002, which grossed a combined $200 million, got the nod from Madonna’s camp despite what sources say was a concentrated effort from rival promoter AEG Live to promote the tour.
Fogel, who declined to comment, seems to be solidly in place in the Madonna touring business. “Arthur Fogel knows how to make the impossible possible,” she was quoted as saying in Billboard last summer. “He’s a touring genius.”

Rumour : Madonna’s Diva Demands

Material Girl, indeed ! In order to commit to a tour this summer – a 12 week production that could earn her up to $150 million – Madonna has some specific demands, says a source close to the singer. On her wish list : a private jet for her family and entourage (including her kabbalah teachers, a personal chef and a masseuse). Plus she’ll tour only from June through August, during her kids’ school break. “Madonna has been driving concert promoters crazy,” the source says. Meanwhile, the singer’s longstanding feud with Mariah Carey continues ! Although both divas are set to appear at the upcoming Brit Awards and the French NRJ Music Awards, “Madonna wants the queen dressing room and her choice of when she will perform in the shows,” says the source. Madonna’s rep did not respond to a message.
