Madonna Invites Superstar Dj Avicii To Perform At Yankee Stadium

Madonna has invited Grammy nominated superstar DJ, remixer and producer AVICII, aka Tim Bergling, to join her at Yankee Stadium on September 6 & 8 for her MDNA shows in New York City. Bergling is reciprocating Madonna’s surprise appearance at his headline show at Ultra Fest this year, when the two debuted AVICII’s remix of her “MDNA” track “Girl Gone Wild”. “She showed up and supported us, and this is my way of showing up and supporting her,” Bergling told USA Today. The critically acclaimed AVICII, whose sets DJ Times called ‘euphoric, epic, fun’, will throw a massive dance party for 50,000+ fans expected that night.

No stranger to stadium size audiences, the 22 year old AVICII has, this year alone, headlined the ULTRA Music Festival, Electric Daisy Carnival, performed at Coachella and headlined at Lollapalooza.

Avicii announced his fall college/major market tour earlier this month. For more info, please visit www.avicii.com

Madonna ‘funny’ fashion director

Madonna was “cracking jokes” when Georgia May Jagger modeled for her.
The singing iconic selected Georgia as the latest face of her Material Girl clothing line. The model flew to meet Madonna and was amazed by how kind and fun she was.
“Madonna was funny. She was cracking a lot of jokes. I love it when women are as powerful as she is. People have been looking up to her for 30 years,” she recalled.
Georgia’s mother is model Jerry Hall. She spoken about borrowing items from her mom’s closet in the past and now says Jerry is ruthless when it comes to clearing out clothes. Thankfully, there are certain items she can’t bear to part with.
“Oh yeah. Whatever ones will fit me,” she told British magazine InStyle, when asked if she borrows from her mom. “She’s got rid of a lot of her old stuff, though when there was that ‘80s revival a few years ago, she was like, ‘I never thought I’d be able to wear my shoulder pads again, this is so cool!”

Jennifer Lopez was almost Part of the Madonna-Britney Kiss

The famous on-camera kiss between Madonna, Britney Spears, and Christina Aguilera was at one time also expected to include Jennifer Lopez, according to Entertainment Weekly.

The three pop superstars appeared on MTV’s 2003 Video Music Awards to mark the 20th anniversary of the VMAS and honor perhaps the event’s most all-time famous performance, Madonna’s superstar-making take on “Like A Virgin” during the 1984 broadcast.

With the 2012 VMAs scheduled tomorrow, MTV Music Group President Van Toffler shares his memories of the wildest moments from the awards. At number 2 he lists what EW calls “Britney and Madonna Swap Spit.”

Toffler recalls, “This may be the first time it’s been revealed: Originally, J.Lo was in the mix. That didn’t happen. And Britney and Madonna, they had history so it was not easy to get them together on the stage. [But] Britney and Christina [Aguilera] obviously respected Madonna. Only she could pull that off.”

Last week rumors circulated that Aguilera and Spears would join Madonna onstage when her MDNA tour is performed in Los Angeles, but Madonna’s spokesperson Liz Rosenberg quickly denied this.

Rumour: Madonna and Elton in Nice

Madonna and Elton John have had more catty exchanges than in a whole year’s worth of EastEnders.
Only last month Elton took his latest pop, comparing Madge to a fairground stripper.
So when the pair bumped into each other at a posh restaurant in the south of France last week, fellow diners couldn’t be blamed for hiding behind their breadsticks.
But the stars have finally managed to put their public battle behind – as they kissed and made up in front of everyone eating at La Petite Maison in Nice. A source said: “Elton goes to the Petite Maison for dinner fairly regularly as it’s near his villa in Mont Boron.
“But Madonna was also there for a bite before her show, which was down the road and didn’t start until around 10.30pm.
“Just as he was leaving, he went over to talk to Madonna and they were laughing and smiling.”
The insider added: “They even hugged each other.”
Perhaps that snowball does have a chance in hell…
