Who’s That Girl – Amazon Pre-Order
Brace yourselves people, Madonna, who’s been dictating make-up trends since the 80s when she graced our screens in the ‘Like A Virgin’ music video, is finally getting her very own make-up collection.
The music icon already has her own skincare line MDNA SKIN, which would set you back £302 for a face cream, but thankfully these products are slightly more affordable.
Teaming up with Too Faced, the brand famous for their Better Than Sex Mascara, the collection includes two make-up box sets, both inspired by Madonna’s stage looks from her hotly anticipated Madame X Tour.
The idea? To give fans their own piece of Madonna to take home and achieve the exact make-up looks Madge wears on stage. Anything that gets us a little bit closer to being Madonna is all good in our books.
Kit number 1, named ‘Medellin Set’, consists of a ruby red shade of Too Faced’s Melted Matte Liquified Long Wear Lipstick, a five part palette with four eyeshadows ranging from matte peaches to red shimmers and a baby pink blush. The set also includes the brand’s Damn Girl! Mascara and Better Than Sex Liquid Liner.
Kit 2, named ‘I Rise’ (in honour of the lead single from her new album) repeats the format but in soft dusty pink and rose gold shades.
Don’t even get us started on the packaging. Needless to say, it’s also pretty major, featuring the Madame X Tour logo with promo images of the queen herself. Make-up with Madonna on the front? We’re sold.
Whilst the exact prices haven’t been released yet we don’t expect it to come close to her skincare line. With average Too Faced prices ranging from £30-£40 for a decent-sized eyeshadow palette, we hope the Madonna collaboration will be along the same lines.
The collab officially drops tomorrow at the Madame X pop up shop in New York but lucky fans can also get their hands on it at the concert dates. Can all gigs have make-up merchandise from now on? Thanks.
Madonna’s Eurovision performance earlier this year was panned by many critics. Now she’s being sued over it as well.
The KAN Israeli public broadcaster, which produced the Eurovision Song Contest in May, filed a lawsuit in a Tel Aviv court on Thursday against Live Nation and Live Nation Israel. The suit, first reported by Israel’s Yediot Aharonot daily, alleges that Madonna’s representatives violated the terms of their agreement and reneged on financial promises.
A spokeswoman for KAN confirmed that the suit was filed, but declined to comment further. According to online court records, KAN is suing Live Nation for 1.375 million shekels ($390,000). A date for an initial hearing in the case has not been set yet. Live Nation Israel did not respond to a request for comment.
According to the court filing, KAN provided Madonna with technical and logistical support that went beyond the Eurovision production, costs that were supposed to be covered by the singer’s team. The additional support included projectors, headphones, additional stage assistants, tents, security and other extra staff. KAN alleges that Live Nation agreed to cover those costs but never paid up, and attempts to recoup the money since the show have been unsuccessful.
Madonna’s appearance fee for the 2019 Eurovision was covered by Canadian-Israeli billionaire Sylvan Adams. KAN publicly battled with the Israeli government over funding for the show, and was forced to take out a 70 million shekel loan (about $20 million) to cover the costs.
The Material Girl’s Eurovision performance was controversial from the start. After drawn-out negotiations, Madonna signed a contract only two days before she took the stage during the show’s grand finale. And KAN producers and the Eurovision organizers were not pleased that the singer displayed Israeli and Palestinian flags on the backs of two dancers during the show, something that had not appeared during rehearsals.
Madonna (The First Album), Like A Virgin, True Blue and Who’s That Girl soundtrack are set to be released on Clear Vinyls.
Release date is November 11th 2019 (Europe) and November 18th 2019 (US).

Madonna earns her record-extending 48th No. 1 on Billboard’s Dance Club Songs chart (dated Aug. 31), as “I Rise” ascends 2-1.
The chart, and all rankings dated Aug. 31, will refresh on Billboard.com on Tuesday, Aug. 27.
With 48 toppers on Dance Club Songs, which measures reports submitted by a national sample of club DJs and which launched as a national survey in the Billboard issue dated Aug. 28, 1976, Madonna outpaces runner-up Rihanna (33 No. 1s), while Beyoncé and Janet Jackson follow with 22 and 20, respectively.
“Rise” is the second leader from Madonna’s album Madame X, following “Medellín” with Maluma. The song led the June 29-dated Dance Club Songs chart, while Madame X launched as Madonna’s ninth No. 1 on the Billboard 200 the same week.
“Rise” marks Madonna’s eighth consecutive Dance Club Songs No. 1, her longest such streak. (Katy Perry holds the record with 18 straight No. 1s in 2009-17.) Twice before, Madonna managed seven straight No. 1s, first with “Causing a Commotion,” from the Who’s That Girl soundtrack (1987), through “Justify My Love,” from her first greatest hits opus, The Immaculate Collection (1991), and then with Ray of Light’s “Nothing Really Matters” (1999) through Music’s “Impressive Instant” (2001). Madonna’s current run began with “Give Me All Your Luvin’,” featuring Nicki Minaj and M.I.A., from her 2012 set MDNA.
“Rise” was first remixed by Miami-based DJ Tracy Young, who has remixed a plethora of other Madonna tracks, including No. 1s “Music,” “Hung Up” and “4 Minutes” (featuring Justin Timberlake and Timbaland). Young’s remix also propelled “Rise” onto the Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart (where it spent two weeks at No. 37 in July), marking Madonna’s first visit since “Living for Love” (No. 25, March 2015).
“Even after 20 plus years of creative collaboration, it is always an honor to work with Madonna,” Young tells Billboard. “When I heard the original version of ‘I Rise,’ I immediately had the vision to create tempo for the inspirational song and connect the message of empowerment to the LGBTQ+ community, especially in celebration with the 50th anniversary of Pride. I asked Madonna if she’d let me remix it and she said yes, which was exciting. It always feels amazing when something I produce is well-received, and that will never be a feeling that gets old.” read more →
Madonna sent her support to Miley Cyrus after the pop titan made the decision to pen a brave note to deny rumors of infidelity in her marriage to Liam Hemsworth.
“Thank GOD!! You are human! A woman who has lived. No need to apologize!!” Madge replied to Cyrus’ Instagram post, which also gained celebrity support from the likes of Juicy J and Bella Thorne. It’s been a whirlwind few weeks of press for the pop superstar after it was announced that she and Hemsworth called it quits and the follow-up divorce announcement. Still, Cyrus had to put a halt to the recent accusations that she and Hemsworth split because of infidelity.
“But the truth is, once Liam & I reconciled, I meant it, & I was committed. There are NO secrets to uncover here. I’ve learned from every experience in my life. I’m not perfect, I don’t want to be, it’s boring. I’ve grown up in front of you, but the bottom line is, I HAVE GROWN UP,” the 26-year-old wrote. “I can admit to a lot of things but I refuse to admit that my marriage ended because of cheating. Liam and I have been together for a decade. I’ve said it before & it remains true, I love Liam and always will.”
