This column has been told that Madonna is getting ready to release her greatest hits album, Iconography, in September – possibly September 22. It will be her final album with Warner Brothers and it will contain three new songs.

Madonna is world’s highest earning musician

‘Queen of Pop’ Madonna continued her reign over the music industry as the hitmaker has come out on top of Forbes’ list of highest earning musicians.

The 50-year-old reigned supreme over her fellow singers as she raked in a mammoth USD 110 million between June 2008 and June 2009 thanks to her successful ‘Sticky & Sweet’ world tour, reported the magazine.

Interestingly the second and third positions were also occupied by women. Celine Dion who took home USD 100 million came in second after the ‘Material Girl’.

Beyonce Knowles came in third in the countdown, pulling in 87 million USD after the success of her album ‘I Am Sasha Fierce’.

But it wasn’t all bad news for the boys with rocker Bruce Springsteen and country star Kenny Chesney rounding out the top five with earnings of 70 million USD and 65 million USD respectively.

Rumour: Madonna to recreate Wiltshire mansion in New York

Madonna is trying to recreate her beloved Wiltshire manor in the middle of Manhattan.

Architects in charge of renovating her new £20million pad have been told it has to be a dead ringer for Ashcombe House, which she shared with ex hubby Guy Ritchie.

A source said: “Madonna is obsessed with making it a match with Ashcombe.

“She wants matching wallpaper, fabrics and furniture. She has meticulously documented her old home room, by room with photographs and she’s sent a team of assistants to stores that stock authentic period pieces.”
