Madonna praises Eminem on gun control with ‘The Sound of Silence’ cover

Madonna has paid tribute to Eminem‘s support for gun control during her latest London Palladium show.

The singer performed a stripped-back rendition of Simon & Garfunkel’s classic ‘The Sound of Silence’ – the track which is sampled on Eminem’s video for ‘Darkness’, released last month (January 17), which calls for tighter US gun control measures.

Madonna spoke between lines of the song to say ‘yes, gun control,’ and ended the brief performance by saying: “And that’s what you want to hear. Not guns. The sound of silence.” Watch the clip, posted on Twitter by the artist herself, below.

The tweet was captioned “Thank you @Eminem”. In the song ‘Darkness’, from last month’s (January 17) surprise album ‘Music To Be Murdered By’, Eminem raps from the point of view of a shooter targeting concertgoers from a hotel room.

The music video visualises the scene, which is a reference to the 2017 Las Vegas shooter who killed more than 50 people attending the Route 91 Harvest music festival.

Madonna claims she was ‘censored’ after London Palladium show cut short

Madonna has claimed the London Palladium tried to “censor” her by cutting short a concert after she ran over her curfew on Wednesday.

The singer was performing her Madame X show when the lights and sound were switched off and the curtain closed as she went past her 23:00 GMT deadline.

Madonna shared a video on Instagram, which showed her trying to sing her final song in front of the curtain.

The Palladium had warned her not to break the strict curfew.

The pop superstar is in the middle of a residency at the venue.

She wrote: “It was 5 minutes past our 11:00 curfew, we had one more song to do and The Palladium decided to censor us by pulling down the metal fire curtain that weighs nine tons.

“Fortunately they stopped it half way and no one was hurt. Many thanks to the entire audience who did not move and never left us. Power to the people!!” read more →

Tracy Young talks Grammy win, Madonna

She took home the 2020 Grammy Award for “Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical” for Madonna’s “I Rise” (Tracy Young’s Pride Into Radio Remix). “I never thought I would be nominated, so I was just getting used to that, and now I won so it’s another blessing,” she said.

“All of the tracks I was nominated alongside were great, so I was a fan of those,” she admitted. “I think the fact that mine was a Madonna remix helped, but again, I never really expected the win, and I was okay with that since the nomination felt like I already had one.”

“I loved the Madame X album, and in particular, I loved ‘I Rise,’ so I wanted to do a version for the dance-floor. The best part was that this remix happened organically. That’s why this song was really special to me. Also, the song is important in its original form,” she added. read more →

Tracy Young makes Grammy History

Grammy history was made Sunday when Tracy Young became the first woman to win the Remixed Recording – Non Classical category.

Tracy Young wins Grammy for Madonna remix

“We made history, ladies,” an emotional Young said as she accepted the award for “I Rise (Tracy Young’s Pride Intro Radio Remix)” by Madonna.

Young had already made history by becoming the first female producer nominated in the category.

“In a male dominated industry, I proudly accept this for all female producers who have been overlooked.”

Previous winners in the category, which debuted in 1998, include Dave Audé, Tiesto, Skrillex and David Guetta.

“Learning to love Madonna” by Tracey Thorn

The last time I saw Madonna, she fell down the stairs. Although, more to the point, she got straight up again and performed a dance routine. I myself recently fell down a flight of stairs, and as I lay at the bottom, curled up in a foetal position, swearing like Ant Middleton, the image of Madonna flashed through my mind. It took me all evening to recover, and as I nursed my bruises with an ice pack, cups of tea, two paracetamol and a Valium, I remembered Madonna at the Brit Awards in 2015. After her fall she was back onstage within seconds, confirming what we all know about her: that she is NAILS. It’s both her strength and her weakness.

I’m here to see her tonight at the Palladium in central London, an intimate venue for such a superstar, and this evening is another recovery on her part: a total of ten earlier shows on this tour had to be cancelled, including the first London date. She has injuries apparently, and has been seen in online footage warming up backstage wearing elasticated knee supports. She looks amazing in knee supports, and it makes me wonder why we don’t all wear them as fashion items. Perhaps we soon will. read more →

Madonna’s Instagram Feed: January 2020

A note to my fans:
As you all know i have multiple injuries and have had to cancel shows to give myself time to recover.
So as not to surprise you i want to let you know ahead of time that I will be cancelling 2 shows- on Feb 4 and Feb 11th at the Palladium in London. because doing 3 shows in a row is too much on my body and in fact my doctors insist i take a day off after every show but i believe can manage if i do 2 shows then I rest!
Its a miracle i have gotten this far but a-lot has to do with the fact that i do 6 hours of re-hab every day.
3 hours before show and 3 after with multiple therapies.
I have also switched to flat shoes and modified difficult. parts of the show. This has helped enormously but i still need to be careful and of course rest is the best medicine.
i never want to cancel any show and Im determined that i will make it to the end if i pace myself.
God Willing 🙏🏼 Refunds will be automatically issued to the credit card on which tickets were ordered.
I appreciate your understanding and sincerely apologize for any inconvenience. Thank you!! Madame ❌ . #madamextheatre #thelondonpalladium
