Madonna may perform in Dubai for $20 mill

Dubai goes from business to music mecca



DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Those who fetch $130 for a barrel
of oil can call the tune these days. And it seems the tune is becoming
so catchy that even Madonna, the original Material Girl, might be
singing soon in this rich Gulf city-state.

Flush with oil
dollars, Dubai is no longer satisfied with being just a business,
tourist and sports mecca. It's trying to boost its prestige further by
pouring money into entertainment to lure the music industry's priciest
stars.

Santana's February concert in Dubai was sold out. Last
week, Jon Bon Jovi performed in Abu Dhabi, the Emirates' capital just a
short ride down the coast.

Justin Timberlake, Elton John, Pink,
Aerosmith, Destiny's Child and the Gypsy Kings have all entertained
Western, Asian and Arab expatriates in the last few months in this
string of seven semiautonomous states in the Persian Gulf. Music fans
regularly fly in from Cairo, Beirut and elsewhere across the Middle
East to hear their idols.

But a Madonna concert — if it happens — would take the musical glitz to a new level.

Earlier
this month, the Dubai-based Gulf News daily and the tabloid 7 Days
reported that the pop diva would come to Dubai this year on a tour
organized by a Los Angeles-based events company, Live Nation, to
promote her new album, "Hard Candy."

Madonna might perform twice,
the newspapers reported, citing event organizers familiar with the
plans — at a public concert and at a private party, a first in her
decades-long career. The price tag for the performances: more than $20
million, the papers said.

So far, however, Madonna's publicists are publicly staying mum.

Nasim
Tabatabaei, marketing and public relations manager for Live Nation
Middle East, based in Dubai, said Madonna was still putting her tour
together.

"She had offers from everywhere, and that could include the Emirates," Tabatabaei told The Associated Press.

The
mania over the possible Madonna concert is a reflection of the fact
that the Emirates have seen "a huge jump in events here, both in the
number of people attending concerts and in the significance of artists
performing," said Thomas Ovesen, managing director of Middle East AEG
Live, the regional arm of an international company that produces live
events worldwide.

The music boom fits in with the Dubai ruler's
ambitious plans to make the city attractive for the rich and famous,
and to fuel mass tourism. Glitzy top-level sports, like March's Dubai
Tennis Championship, are another factor.

In terms of the concert
scene, Dubai has people and firms that can pay top dollar "even though
the event might not be commercially viable," Ovesen said.

Artists
who perform in Dubai expect to earn "twice as much" as they do in the
United States or Europe, Ovesen said. He refused to disclose how much
Bon Jovi walked away with after his performance for a crowd of 17,000
in Abu Dhabi. His company helped organize the concert in one of the
most expensive hotels ever built, The Emirates Palace.

Not everyone is happy about the high production costs.

It's
"good that Dubai is on the radar screen of the world's major
promoters," said Abdullatif al-Sayegh, chief executive of Arab Media
Group, which along with Viacom Inc.'s MTV Networks International owns
MTV Arabia.

But it's "not so good that we are paying twice or
three times as much" for concerts as do promoters in the United States
and Europe, he said.

Yet, corporate sponsors are only too eager
to throw their money behind music and sports heavyweights to raise
their company profiles. Paul Idznik, Barclays' chief operating officer,
said his bank invested $9 million to sponsor the tennis championship
the past three years.

An additional attraction for famous
visitors and artists is the privacy in Dubai — filled with gated
communities and a mostly nonintrusive local press.

"Celebrities
come, relax, dine, party and shop without the media ever finding out
they were even here," al-Sayegh said. "That's a great feeling for them
and for us."


Associated Press writer Alfred de Montesquiou contributed to this report.

Madonna: why the dark glasses?

Ah, celebrities. They're really not like me and you, are they?

For a start, they dine at Nobu. Secondly: sometimes they dine at Nobu in their pyjamas. And thirdly: sometimes they arrive at Nobu at night, wearing sunglasses.

Like our good friend Madonna here, last night - clad in black, and that includes her shades.

The last time Madge was out at night wearing her sunglasses, they seemed to be covering up some suspicious bruises. Could that be the case this time? Or is she just a bit tired? Aww...

Lola wants to tour with Mamma

Lourdes, who is known as Lola, is taking dance classes at London's
famous Pineapple studios and the 11-year-old is determined to perform
alongside her superstar mother

A source said: "Lola has really impressed her dance teacher and her heart

is set on a special dance sequence alongside Madonna, possibly at her
upcoming Wembley show."

Although
the '4 Minutes' singer is keen to dance with Lourdes, her husband Guy
Ritchie - who is Lourdes' stepdad - is not convinced.

The
source added: "Guy is worried it could be too much for Lola at such a
young age. He doesn't want her to become a child star."

Lourdes
is Madonna's daughter from a previous relationship with personal
trainer Carlos Leon. She also has a seven-year-old son, Rocco, with Guy
and an adopted son, David, two.

Madonna's 'Sticky and Sweet' world tour will visit London's Wembley stadium on September 11

Madonnas bill for her stay in cannes, $92,800!

Madonna has refused to pay a $92,800 bill after she discovered a film crew snuck in and filmed her bathroom
during her stay at Carlton Intercontinental Hotel for last week’s
Cannes Film Festival. A livid Madge claims a French film crew gained
access to her secluded dwelling and recorded unauthorized footage of
her restroom, specially purified water, and gym equipment that later
aired on France’s Canal Plus television network.

Madonna wins award at Cannes. But not for film.


Madonna



Forget the Palme d'Or. The Festival de Cannes' hometown newspaper - Nice-Matin - gave out its own awards, in the print edition, to famous festival film stars this weekend.



The daily French Riviera newspaper gave Madonna its “Egocentric Award” because she “acted like the whole film festival was organized just for her.”



The newspaper presented festival jury president Sean Penn with the “Addiction Award” for “chain smoking in the toilets” and bestowed Mike Tyson with the “Absurd Award” for simply being Mike Tyson.



Clint Eastwood won the “Cinema Lover Award” because
he intermingled with the international film crowd and even made an
appearance for a "Dirty Harry" retrospective.



Nice-Matin also applauded the ongoing endurance of the 2008 party people, including Sean "Diddy" Combs, Petra Nemcova, Lindsay Lohan, Kerry Washington, Natalie Portman, Naomi Campbell, Kate Hudson, Jay-Z, Beyonce and Milla Jovovich
who managed survive the weekend’s all-night Dolce and Gabbana bash and
Puffy's yacht party, which ended just in time for cafe noir and
croissants.



How do they do it? Let's give these famous folks a big hand!

Woman Jailed for playing Madonna songs too loud!


Neighbour from hell jailed for three months for blasting out Madonna tracks around the clock

A woman has been jailed for three months after breaching an Asbo
forbidding her from upsetting the neighbours by playing Madonna songs
at high volume.


Council officers spent two years and £20,000 of taxpayers' cash trying to silence Tracey Kirby.


But even a court order seizing her hi-fi failed to stop the 33-year-old, who hit back by borrowing another stereo.

After three years of complaints from her neighbours, the mother of
three was handed an anti-social behaviour order in February, banning
her from playing loud music at her home in Rishton, Lancashire.


Having breached the order 11 times, Kirby was sentenced to 90 days
in prison after probation officers said she would not respond to
another court order.


Kirby's neighbour Dave Schofield, 33, who shares his home with
girlfriend Karen Lee, 28, and 11-year-old daughter Jordan-Louise, said:
'At its height this woman played Madonna and rave music at full blast
at all times of the day and night.


'She loves her karaoke, too, but she screams a lot and obviously can't sing.


'Our daughter woke up because her bed was vibrating from the noise. It was that loud.


'It has affected Karen's work because she couldn't sleep at night and was still tired in the morning.


'We've lived here for about four years and it has been going on for about three.'


Hyndburn Council served a noise abatement notice on Kirby in October
2006 after residents' diaries showed how she continually pumped up the
volume while playing Madonna songs.


Last year, noise officers were called to her home again over reports
of yet more loud music and she admitted borrowing a 'little stereo'
from a friend.


Kirby pleaded guilty to breaching the Asbo on March 27, as well as April 19 and 22.


Defence solicitor Graeme Parkinson told Hyndburn magistrates: 'I
have grave concerns about the way Tracey will get on in custody because
it's obvious she has problems.'


He added, however: 'Just what problems she is suffering from nobody can say for sure.'
