Madonna denies marriage split rumours

Pop queen Madonna has dismissed reports that her marriage is on the rocks.

It has been suggested that the 49-year-old singer and her film director husband, Guy Ritchie, 39, are to split.

The pair, who have not been photographed together for weeks, were said to be leading separate lives. Madonna was reportedly planning to take the couple’s children to the US, while Ritchie would stay in London.

But Liz Rosenberg, Madonna’s US spokeswoman, said: “I am delighted to confirm that Mr and Mrs Guy Ritchie remain happily married.

“Though they were in different countries recently – Madonna in the US doing promotion for her upcoming album Hard Candy and Guy finishing up post-production on his new film RocknRolla as well as completing a Nike commercial and working on several scripts in England – the family are joyfully back together at home in London.

“All is well and wonderful in the Ritchie household.”

Sonia Kruger’s Interview with Madonna

It seems like an eternity but finally we can release part one of the exclusive Madonna interview! You might remember that last month I flew over to Los Angeles where I interviewed Madonna – she was absolutely wonderful and I’m really proud of the interview – we had a great time. Although she was obviously fairly intimidating (without even wanting to be I’m sure) – she was actually heaps of fun and down-to-earth. We’ll have more of the interview in a few weeks time – so without further ado: enjoy part 1

“4 Minutes” – The Observer Review

Madonna, Four Minutes (Warner), single
4 stars

After failing to ignite interest in Duran Duran, Timberland and Timberlake apply their ample tricks to a more fail-safe ticket. One provides the horn-led double funk groove; the other his most boyband chorus since leaving *NSync. The result is a barnstorming urban makeover. Gwen? Nelly? Those P45s are waiting. Grandma’s come to reclaim her crown.

4 Minutes in ‘Get Smart’ – confirmed

When it came time to choose cover art for her upcoming album Hard Candy (due April 29), Madonna went for a literal interpretation. The newly revealed photo shows the Hall-of-Famer looking tough in over-the-knee boots and a wrestling belt, with a background of pink peppermint swirls.

Like sugar, Madonna is addictive, so we’ve got more three more pics to satisfy your sweet tooth after the jump, including the Justin Timberlake-adorned cover art for the album’s first single, “4 Minutes to Save the World.”

In related news, Warner Bros. confirmed that “4 Minutes” will be used in the upcoming film remake of “Get Smart.” What is it with Madonna and spy spoofs?

Madonna’s Single ‘4 Minutes’ to Debut in New Sunsilk Ad

Madonna, whose new album “HARD CANDY” is scheduled for an April 29 release, will debut her first single “4 Minutes” in a new Sunsilk commercial, announced today by Unilever. The pop artist and ever-changing chameleon and superstar originally appeared in the first Sunsilk “Life Can’t Wait” Campaign alongside Marilyn Monroe and Shakira, but will now be the sole focus of the brand’s new styling product spot that will debut on March 17.

The spot will trace Madonna’s ever-evolving look throughout the years as a means to inspire girls to play around with their current styles — with the help of the new Sunsilk styling aids — and will include the music of Madonna’s new single “4 Minutes.”

“We’re proud to unveil a powerful advertisement that features a truly inspirational icon along with our new styling products,” said David Rubin, director of U.S. Hair Care Operations, Unilever. “Madonna continues to be such an inspiration for young girls by continuously reinventing her looks, and we expect the new commercial will also encourage girls to evolve by changing their looks and making their hair and lives happen in a variety of exciting ways.”

The spot launches advertising for the new Sunsilk Shower to Style Collections, including Daring Volume, Captivating Curls, Waves of Envy and Straight to Perfection. Girls do not have to make do with just one look — they can have a fling with their hairstyles and change up their looks and their lives with the Shower to Style Collections. Specially formulated and designed for each hair care need, the Collections actually start styling hair in the shower. The fun gets into full swing with styling products to create a variety of different looks depending on a girl’s hair … and her mood.
