Madonna directed Miu Miu’s film

Madonna is the secret director of Miu Miu’s a/w 2010 campaign film.

The campaign film for Miu Miu’s autumn/winter 2010 collection has been doing the rounds for a couple of months now and we fell for it as soon as we saw it. It stars models Lindsey Wixson, Siri Tollerød, Ginta Lapina, and Daphne Groeneveld, all decked out in the lust-have embellished dresses that have caused such a stir paired with kitten heels, patent bags and matching eye shadow.

The girls laugh, play and throw shapes to some bass-heavy dance music backed by strobe lights. And it’s just emerged where they got their moves from – Madonna was on set giving them tips.

Apparently Madonna rocked up onto the set of the Miu Miu campaign shoot to meet photographers Mert Atlas and Marcus Pigott and take them for dinner. But she got distracted and ended up directing the video instead.

Ginta Lapina told Love magazine, ‘We were supposed to shoot a video, so Madonna said she wanted to direct it. They said she could do it but they weren’t going to pay her and she started laughing. She put on her iPod and taught us moves and we shot the video for two hours.’

Take a look at the resulting film below and see how many signature Madonna moves you can spot:

Madonna to be featured on David Guetta Album Re-Release

David Guetta is planning on re-releasing his smash album “One Love” and he’s getting help from the Queen of Pop.

According to the Daily Star, Madonna is set to be featured on the upcoming repackage. The French DJ superstar went into the studio with the 52-year-old pop queen for a new song.

“It was the first time I was properly star-struck,” Guetta said about the experience.

Guetta and Madonna previously collaborated on a remix for her last single, “Revolver.” Originally an electro-pop track featuring Lil Wayne off her “Celebration” compilation, Guetta’s “One Love” remix of the track earned Madonna a top 5 single on the dance chart.

Guetta is working on getting other artists to collaborate for the new edition of “One Love,” including Rihanna. “I am talking to Rihanna about doing a song but nothing is confirmed,” he said.

“One Love” already earned Guetta the worldwide hits “When Love Takes Over” with Kelly Rowland, “Sexy B—-” with Akon, and “Getting’ Over You” with Chris Willis, Fergie and LMFAO.

The upcoming special edition of “One Love” is set to be released on October 2nd.

Rumour: Madonna offered $1bn for Vegas residency deal

Madonna could earn $1 billion if she agrees to sign a five-year Vegas residency deal, reports say.

The singer is said to be in talks with promoters which would see her follow in the footsteps of other Vegas acts including Elton John, Celine Dion and Cher.

Metro reports that the deal would push the ‘Hung Up’ star up the list of the highest paid female entertainers in the world to third position, behind Oprah Winfrey and Martha Stewart.

It is unclear whether the arrangement would conflict with her ten-year touring contract with Live Nation, signed in 2007 for a reported £80 million.

Britney plays Madonna in Glee episode

Britney Spears had big shoes to fill while filming her upcoming guest appearance in Glee – she played the part of Madonna in a recreation of the pair’s Me Against The Music video.

The Toxic hitmaker will be the centre of attention on the hit musical show when it returns for a second season, with a full episode dedicated to her music, and she began shooting her cameo role this week.

During the second day of filming on Thursday, Spears donned a white trouser suit similar to the outfit worn by the Material Girl for the promo of their collaborative 2003 track, while Heather Morris, who plays Glee member Brittany, took Spears’ part in the re-imagining.

Madonna sued over ‘Material Girl’

A clothing company is taking legal action against Madonna, claiming the material girl has ripped off the “Material Girl” trademark.

L.A. Triumph, Inc. claims in a new lawsuit it’s been marketing “Material Girl” clothing since 1997, selling millions of bucks worth of threads under its trademark.

According to the documents, obtained by TMZ, Madonna, aka Madonna Louise Veronica Ciccone, has jacked the name “Material Girl” for her junior clothing line Material Girl Brand — which launched this year.

L.A. Triumph wants a declaration from a federal judge that Madonna’s use of “Material Girl” creates “deception” in the marketplace.

In addition to the declaration, L.A. Triumph wants the judge to order Madonna and her company to turn over all of the profits they’ve made from their clothing line.

Joan Rivers mocks Madonna

Joan Rivers has ridiculed Madonna on her twitter page for getting ”old”.

The 77-year-old comedienne attended the pop superstar’s 52nd birthday party at London’s exclusive Shoreditch House over the weekend and has now taken to her twitter page to mock her friend.

Joan jokingly wrote on twitter: “I was just thinking: Madonna sure is getting old. I should have taught her a new birthday game – “Pin The Tail On The Coroner.” Next year”

The blond star also made fun of Madonna’s multicultural family in another “light-hearted” post.

She cheekily tweeted: “I went to Madonna’s birthday party. Wow! The cake had 52 candles on it, one for each child she’s stolen from Africa.”

Liz Smith: Will Lady Gaga Play Lady Madonna?

The media is constantly comparing M and G. And naturally placing Madonna in the “envious older star” category and Gaga as the “image-snatching copycat.” But even so, fans of both are dying for the singers to collaborate on something.

“Sources” say there could be a video pairing, like the one Madonna did with Britney Spears and Gaga did with Beyoncé. (Although it might be best if Gaga didn’t kiss Madonna at any point. It’s sort of a pop music urban legend that Madonna and Britney’s kiss at the MTV Awards was the beginning of Britney’s downfall. It was supposed to be Madonna “passing the torch,” but the joke is “she sucked the life from her!”)

Now, a video or a song is always possible between M and G, but the next bit of gossip? Don’t dress and let’s consider the saltshaker. There’s a rumor that Madonna is planning her own biopic and that she’s chosen Gaga to interpret her life…
