Pedro Almodóvar on Madonna

Pedro Almodóvar has presented his new film “Los abrazos rotos” in Madrid and he was asked about Madonna and Antonio Banderas and their scene in “Truth Or Dare” (In Bed with Madonna) and he said:

“When she came with her Blond Ambition tour I prepared a dinner for her, and that “little thief” didn’t tell us that everything she was recording was going to be part of her film.”
“Madonna was asking for Antonio Banderas’ phone number all the time, because she wanted to screw him and I never gave it to her. When she went out jogging she always had her six bodyguards and I told her: “Madonna, babe, this kind of things are not very attractive here in Spain. In this country, that thing about bodyguards is like an offense, nobody is going to shoot Madonna or whoever in Spain. But in United States bodyguards seem to be, like a part of the body of the star.
She asked me if I didn’t have bodyguards and I said “I would only have them to f*ck them”

Madonna spotted at Britney’s Concert

Madonna made a surprise appearance at Britney Spears’ sold-out Circus show Wednesday in New York City.

Shortly before Spears, 27, took the stage at the Nassau Coliseum on Long Island, Madonna, 50, arrived with her manager Guy Oseary (and several bodyguards) and headed to one of the VIP suites.

“She purposely walked up the main stairs in front of everybody so they would all notice her,” an insider told “Celebrities definitely don’t need to go up the main stairs to get to their suites.”

During the 90-minute show, Spears gyrated her way through mostly tunes from her last two albums, Circus and Blackout.

Madonna left right before Spears’ encore of “Womanizer.”

As hordes of screaming fans gathered around her, Madonna had a little smirk on her face.

Madonna and Guy reached a custody settlement over kids

Madonna and Guy Ritchie last night reached a custody settlement which will allow their kids to live in the US.

The singer and Brit movie director, who divorced last year, have been locked in a fight over sons Rocco, eight and David Banda, three.

The pair were heading for a New York court showdown yesterday because Guy wanted them raised in the UK.

But lawyers agreed a last-minute deal that allows Rocco and David to live with Madonna, 50, while Guy, 40, will get regular visits and see the children in the UK during holidays.

Madonna in Cut-Rate Concert ?

Pop star Madonna will be paid her “lowest-ever” fee for a concert in St. Petersburg in August, the concert’s promoter said Wednesday.

The singer will perform on Palace Square on Aug. 2 as part of her “Sticky & Sweet” tour. She won’t visit Moscow.

“It will be the lowest fee in the whole history of Madonna. Madonna really will receive little. She wanted to come to St. Petersburg herself,” said Yevgeny Finkelshtein, the president of PMI Corporation, RIA-Novosti reported.

He did not give a figure for the fee.

Madonna will be performing on Paratroopers Day, a notoriously rowdy holiday when servicemen usually gather on Palace Square. They may be moved to the Field of Mars, Finkelshtein said.

The 50,000 tickets go on sale March 16, costing from 2,000 rubles ($55).

Jesus’ mother denies Madonna slur

Jesus Luz’s mother Christiane has denied criticising her son’s relationship with Madonna.

Christiane was recently quoted as saying she believes the megastar “kidnapped” Jesus and is controlling his every move. However, she now says this is not what she thinks.

“All I will say is that I was misquoted. I don’t know Madonna, but I know my son, and I know him to be very sensible. I think he knows what he’s doing. I would like to hear from him more, yes. But boys his age don’t report everything they’re doing back to their mothers, do they?” she told Hello! magazine.

Christiane also refuses to stand by published accusations that Madonna was “brainwashing” her son in the ways of the Kabbalah. “That’s all been blown out of proportion. I guess this is what happens when normal people get caught up in someone else’s crazy world.”

Pet Shop Boys were suppose to produce Hard Candy

from PopJustice Blog (Thanks to Ericka):

Yesterday Pet Shop Boys gave media the chance to pre-listen to “Yes”, their forthcoming new record, in London, for review purposes only and, after the album listening, Neil Tennant (Pet Shop Boys frontman) held a Q&A session with reporters.

One of the several questions they asked was about Pet Shop Boys latest (scrapped) collaborations and Neil shockingly stated that after remixing “Sorry” in 2006, they were contacted again by Warner, in 2007, and asked to write & produce some tracks for an album Madonna was planning at the time (which later became “Hard Candy”)

Sadly, the same week Warner’s changed mind and according to Neil own words “we got told to forget it as they decided to shove her down the r&b route” Neil stated Parlophone asked them to write for Kylie’s “X” as well, before deciding to send Minogue out to other producers instead (one of the tracks featured on “Yes” (titled “Pandemonium”) was actually written & demoed for her, along with other 5 cuts)
