Skype Users, Madonna Is Calling

EBay’s web-based phone service Skype has been given the go-ahead by EMI Music Publishing and Warner Music Group to sell song downloads from the two companies at an online music store.
Skype could sell the songs via its existing online store, which offers Skype-compatible hardware and accessories to the service’s nearly 95 million users. The music store has not yet launched, but more information will be available this week, according to a company spokeswoman.
At the site personal.skype.com, users can already purchase generic ring-tones for $1.20 each, but the deals with EMI and Warner could include tracks from artists such as Madonna, Rob Thomas and Green Day at undetermined pricing.
According to EMI, Skype now has license to use songs from the publisher’s catalog for downloading, subscriptions and master-tones on a world-wide basis, though in order to do so, Skype must also get permission from individual record labels. So far, only Warner has consented.

Gossip : Jolie’s lesbian ex reveals Madonna affair

Jenny Shimizu is claiming that she once had an affair with Madonna.
The model, who last week spoke about her relationship with Angelina Jolie, has revealed how the Queen of Pop chose her for romance.
“She spotted me on a casting video and called me out of the blue,” Jenny told the News of the World. “She asked me to dinner and I went to her house. Nothing happened that night, but we both felt an immediate attraction.
“Then two days later I went back to a party and instantly we both knew that we’d end up in bed together. From the age of 14 I’d watched her videos and thought, “~I’m going to have sex with that gorgeous woman one day.’ And that night my fantasy came true – again and again and again.”

Madonna plans stunts for world tour

Madonna is planning to perform dangerous stunts while on stage during her new world tour.
The singer has become interested in Parkour, or “free running”, which includes jumping and climbing techniques, and has met up with the sport’s founder Sebastien Foucan.
“She’s only learning the most basic elements so far,” a source told the Daily Star. “It’s incredibly dangerous. She’s learning how to fall properly first. Seb is a great guy and they’ve really hit it off.”
