Madonna loves a lounge party

For most women within touching distance of their 50th birthday, one of London’s trendiest nightspots would be an unlikely venue to host a party.
Not so for Madonna. She chose the ultra-hip Lounge Lover bar in Shoreditch to celebrate her 48th birthday and the end of the UK leg of her Confessions world tour.
It was a clear sign that the singer is not yet ready to surrender her status as pop’s queen of cool.
It would have been difficult for the Material Girl to have picked a more stylish venue. A short walk from Brick Lane, the private function room is filled with Swedish and French furniture from the 18th and 19th centuries, while surreal artwork adorns the walls.
She arrived at the party with husband Guy Ritchie following her show at Wembley Arena.
The 12,000 fans – most of whom had paid an eye-watering L160 for their seats – sang Happy Birthday to her while she was on stage.
The singer then thanked them before making a well-thought out birthday request – world peace. She added: “I cannot think of a better way to spend my birthday than with you.”
It was a shame then, that she had to rush off for her bash where guests included Gwyneth Paltrow, Jamie Oliver and wife Jools, former England rugby captain Lawrence Dallaglio, artist Tracey Emin and actor Kevin Spacey.
Madonna jets off to Germany for the next leg of her tour, but may find herself falling foul of the authorities.
A scene during her show where she is hoisted up on a crucifix has sparked outrage among religious leaders. Madonna’s representatives insist it is not disrespectful to the Church.
