Spider-man star Tom Holland’s awkward run-in with Madonna

If you’re meeting a legendary pop star on a whim, you’d best hope you can keep it cool.

Tom Holland has opened up about the first time he met Madonna — and it didn’t go as smoothly as he hoped.

In a recent interview on the Graham Norton Show, the Spider-Man star said meeting the pop star was “one of his most embarrassing experiences”.

New Madonna Interview for E! News

You don’t have to be a music icon to get great skin. But being Madonna helps.

Even at a young age, the “Like a Virgin” singer has always been diligent about maintaining a healthy complexion. When she didn’t have much money, she used to get facials from a heroin addict, Madonna shared at the U.S. launch of her beauty brand, MDNA Skin, in September 2017. Now the 59-year-old queen of pop has the resources and platform to share her devotion to skin care with the masses.

“The biggest challenge is getting the story out there—where does this line come from and why it is important to me, that it’s not a vanity project, why I developed it in the first place and connecting to people on a human level,” said Madonna to E! News in a phone interview.

You could just scoop up her latest launch—a four-in-one (toning serum, lotion, cream and mask) product appropriately titled, The Reinvention Cream ($75). Like all MDNA products, the lightweight jelly-cream features M.T.Parca Thermal Water, which comes from four different springs in Montecatini, Italy, known for its healing properties. The cream also features three African Resurrection plants (the ones that can sustain extreme dehydration then spring back alive with water). But as Madonna can attest, basic lifestyle choices—the ones that cost almost nothing—can improve your skin, too.

Here, the Material Girl reveals the skin-care tips she imparts on her kids, three beauty products she always has in her bag (hint: one is crazy affordable!) and more!

E! News: It’s been three or four years since you first launched in Japan. What are you most proud of?
Madonna: The ingredients are important to me—the fact that they are made with all-natural ingredients, that the hero ingredient of the line is thermal water that comes from Tuscany and that have been a part of healing people for thousands of years. I feel like there’s history to it; there’s authenticity to it. It’s not just talk; it’s also walk. It’s great when you’re not wearing makeup; it’s great when you are wearing makeup. My 17-year-old [Rocco Ritchie] son uses it. It’s something that everybody loves, and I’m very proud of that. read more →

Christina Aguilera: “Madonna paved the way for my generation”

Aguilera is excited for what’s happening with new artists in the entertainment industry, because of how much more progressive it is. “They don’t have as much backlash when they come out on the scene. And I did. It was a very interesting and controversial time for me.” She points out how much more accepted it is now for an artist to take risks and to also be sexually empowered than it was back then. “Either women are not sexual enough or we’re not fulfilling enough of a fantasy for you, but then if we’re overtly sexual or feeling empowered in a certain kind of way, then we’re shamed for it.” She’s proud of herself during the “Dirrty” era, even with the harsh criticism she received. “Madonna had to go through it in her day, and she paved the way for my generation to come up. And paying it forward, now a younger generation is coming up and I’m loving what I’m seeing. It’s so incredible.”

Madonna Set to Direct Michaela DePrince Biopic ‘Taking Flight’

Madonna will direct the upcoming film Taking Flight about Michaela DePrince, the Sierra Leonean ballet star who also appeared in Beyoncé’s Lemonade. The new film will be adapted by Camilla Blackett from the memoir Taking Flight: From War Orphan to Star Ballerina.

“Michaela’s journey resonated with me deeply as both an artist and an activist who understands adversity,” Madonna said in a statement. “We have a unique opportunity to shed light on Sierra Leone and let Michaela be the voice for all the orphaned children she grew up beside.”

Madonna to direct Michaela DePrince Biopic

DePrince was born in Sierra Leone in 1995. Both her parents were killed in the country’s civil war, and her uncle took her to an orphanage. She was later adopted by a family in New Jersey. DePrince excelled in ballet and eventually joined the Dutch National Ballet, where she is now a soloist.

DePrince co-wrote her memoir with her adoptive mother in 2015. “It was a therapeutic outlet and a way for me to reach out to other people,” she told The Guardian. “… I always wanted to be a role model and to let people know that it’s OK to dream and to live for something.”

The same year, Beyoncé reached out to DePrince to enlist her to dance in Lemonade. “[Beyoncé] said I looked like I was a creature from another planet,” the dancer told the Wall Street Journal. “She walked up to me and said, ‘It’s such an honor to have you here.’ I was really cheesy and said, ‘The honor is mine.’ I was on cloud nine.”

Taking Flight marks Madonna’s third gig directing a feature film. In 2008, she helmed Filth and Wisdom. She also co-directed 2011’s W.E. In addition, she’s currently working on a big-screen adaptation of the novel The Impossible Lives of Greta Wells.
