For Madonna’s Boyfriend, Fame by Association

THROUGH the penthouse windows, New York City, foggy and soft-looking, was spread out in every direction. Jesus Luz, best known as the 22-year-old Brazilian model who is dating Madonna, was about to step up to the D.J. station in a club atop a Lower East Side hotel.

Young models in sheer cocktail dresses shimmied near chrome buckets holding bottles of the vodka brand sponsoring the party.

A freelance reporter for Life & Style magazine prepared to sidle up for a quick interview. "I'm here because I'm supposed to ask him questions about dating Madonna," she said.

Asked if she knew how to say Mr. Luz's first name, she ventured, "Hay-soos? Or maybe Gee-zus?"

Life has changed so fast for Mr. Luz, it is not surprising that not everyone in his orbit knows how to pronounce Jesus in the proper Portuguese way. Matt Levine, a club owner who had organized the party and refers to Mr. Luz as a friend, was going with "Hay-soos." Josh Holland, who has been his personal trainer for several months, after the two met through a Madonna connection, was snapping photos and calling him "J."

A year ago, Mr. Luz was earning about $500 a day as a model in Rio de Janeiro, said Sérgio Mattos, his agent at the time. Then in December 2008 he landed a shoot with Madonna for W magazine in which the two played lovers in a Rio hotel.

"At the moment he met Madonna, I never see him after that," said Mr. Mattos in a telephone interview. "I sent him to the job and after that he changed phone numbers and I never see him again."

The months since have been a study in ascension. Mr. Luz signed with Ford Models in New York, escorted Madonna to the Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute Ball in the spring and appeared on the runway for Dolce & Gabbana in Milan.

He enrolled at a D.J. school in Manhattan and in no time has landed high-profile gigs. For the 90-minute set he was spinning Nov. 12, only his second professional D.J. outing in the city, he was being paid around $15,000, said Matthew Isaacs, a promoter who had booked him, at a lower cost, to spin two nights later at Hiro in the meatpacking district.

Mr. Luz is hot, and he is enjoying it.

"I love the energy of the crowd," he said, stepping away from the D.J. stand to pose for photos with admiring female fans. "It's good to have two careers going on, modeling and D.J.ing. I feel good."

Before Mr. Luz, muscular and curly haired with piercing blue eyes, returned to the laptop and mixing board, he explained the proper way to say his first and last names: "Zhay-ZOOSE. Loose."

If dating Madonna were enough to make it big in New York, Carlos Leon, the personal trainer who fathered her first child, might own a citywide chain of Get Cut with Carlos gyms. Jellybean Benitez, the D.J. who remixed songs for her when they were a couple in the 1980s, might be a judge on "American Idol."

Mr. Luz, the son of a hospital clerical worker and a hairdresser, is charming, friendly, sincere and hard-working. As his star has rocketed upward, he has shown one of the qualities of a great New York: the ability to use the opportunities presented to their fullest.

If you want to say he owes it all to Madonna, go ahead. He isn't concerned with responding to those who say he'd be nothing without the singer, who included Mr. Luz at her 51st birthday party aboard a boat in Italy in August, with her children and the designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana.

"I don't talk about my girlfriend," Mr. Luz said. "Let them come to their own conclusions." (Through a spokeswoman, Madonna declined to comment for this article.)

Jesus Pinto na Luz, who has two younger brothers, moved frequently as a child, especially after his parents split when he was almost 5 years old.

"I grew up with many ups and downs," he said. "I also saw the beauty of people who were living an intellectual life and also people who were humble and had nothing."

As a teenager he pursued modeling and acting, working odd jobs, including as a salesman at a surf shop in Ipanema.

"When I was a teenager, I thought I couldn't do nothing in my life," he said. "I felt very hopeless. And then something started to happen."

He studied Buddhism and yoga and an ex-girlfriend introduced him to kabbalah. "I'm just looking for something to make me strong, and kabbalah has given me that," he said. "I'm looking for something to make me comfortable and happy in my life."

In 2006, he spent six months in New York, living with an aunt and learning English.

When he met Madonna, also a kabbalah devotee, last December, she had been divorced from the filmmaker Guy Ritchie for one month.

Once back in Manhattan, things happened very quickly for Mr. Luz. He became friendly with Mr. Holland, the personal trainer, who was an assistant to Madonna's trainer, Tracy Anderson. "I was helping Tracy train Madonna," Mr. Holland said. "And that's how I met him, because he was always there."

Mr. Luz works out five or six days a week, Mr. Holland said.

He also began studying at Dubspot, a D.J. school. "I like music," Mr. Luz explained. "I like electronic music. I'm learning how to produce. It's great to be a channel of music. It's great to have the energy of the people going through you."

Although some gossip Web sites have reported that Madonna pays Mr. Luz an "allowance," he said that was ridiculous. "I'm laughing so loud," he said.

He has landed paying jobs, whether by association with the singer the British newspapers call "Madge," or not. He walked the runway in Milan in June for Dolce & Gabbana and appeared in an ad campaign for the company this fall. He is in campaigns for the winter collection of Pepe Jeans and the spring-summer collection of the Argentine fashion label Ona Saez.

In May, he and Madonna attended the 30th birthday party of Lorenzo Martone, a Brazilian publicist for models who is the boyfriend of the designer Marc Jacobs. Mr. Martone and Mr. Luz became friends.

At the party, attended by about 150 people including Amanda Setton from the cast of "Gossip Girl" and the artist Terence Koh, Mr. Martone gave Mr. Luz a turn as D.J. Photos appeared on the W magazine blog and other Web sites.

"Of course being with someone high-profile helps," Mr. Martone said, "but if you don't work hard, that doesn't last more than a couple of months in New York."

New York has been good to him, Mr. Luz allowed. "I like the strong energy of the people in the city and how they work and run behind your ideals here," he said. "It is very contagious in a good way. Sometimes when I look at the Statue of Liberty, I feel a sensation similar to when I look at the statue of Christ in Rio."

About six weeks ago, a D.J. agent for Mr. Luz began spreading word that he was available for parties. It didn't hurt his prospects that Madonna attended his first significant gig in New York, a Nov. 3 party at the Boom Boom Room at the Standard Hotel to promote the documentary "Valentino: The Last Emperor."

"Every club person in the city, including me, jumped on it in the hopes of having her at the party as well," said Mr. Isaacs, the promoter for the club Hiro. "There's a lot of media hype around him. Girls seem to be interested in him."

Mr. Isaacs said he had tried to help book Mr. Luz for a party at a club in Las Vegas, but the club balked at the fee Mr. Luz's representatives were requesting, $30,000.

It is a lot of money for a D.J. who has not worked enough nights to find his own voice, said D.J. Manero, who followed Mr. Luz one night. But, D.J. Manero added, "He had an opportunity and he took full advantage of it."

At Hiro last Saturday, Karl Templer, the creative director of Interview magazine, stepped onto the D.J. platform to pat Mr. Luz on the back. Mr. Luz danced to the rumbling electronic music he played, stamping his right foot, throwing out his rear end and, occasionally, throwing an arm in the air like a rodeo rider.

After climbing down, Mr. Templer said he had come to offer support as a friend, following a shoot Mr. Luz had done that day for Interview.

When did Mr. Templer first meet his friend?

"Today," Mr. Templer said.

Will it last? Can it last? Should it last?

Hard work is helpful, but there is a lot of competition at the top. After the Lower East Side penthouse show, Marie Cuccurullo, a publicist with Think PR, which had been hired by the promoters, was bemoaning the lack of A-list turnout. Christian Siriano, of "Project Runway," was arguably the most famous person there — besides Mr. Luz.

"We were hired to get celebrities, but we were competing with the 'Twilight' premiere and after-party, the Victoria's Secret show and after-party, and P. Diddy's 40th birthday," she said. "Every prospect was like 'Are you kidding?' "

Mr. Luz is not quite ready to fly solo in such a universe.

He has mixed two of his own songs so far, one called "Sweet Mystery" and another called "We Come From Light." (In Portuguese, luz means light.)

He finished his sets last weekend by mashing together "We Come From Light" with a Madonna hit.

"Revolver," he explained. "I mix it with my song. You can hear my voice and her voice together."

Susan Boyle Sings You'll See Reviewed

I thought it was a great effort, its an orchestral version. The music builds up towards the end. She sings with alot of passion and conviction, good range. Sounds alot like something Sarah Brightman would do. I give her 3 stars for her first effort.

Nelly Furtado attacks Madonna for being a hardworking badass

According to reports, Canadian singer Nelly Furtado has blasted Madonna over her freakish effort to look young and the lengths she goes to maintain her looks.

Furtado insists that she will never try and cheat father time in order to reverse the aging process, and would rather just sit around her kitchen and eat instead.

"I am not ready to adjust physically, just to be marketable. My sell-by date will run out eventually," she said.

"Unlike Madonna, I wouldn't be willing to do Pilates round the clock, just to slow down the deterioration of my body. I prefer to sit in the kitchen, drink tea and eat biscuits," she added.

Furtado recently revealed that she rewrote her new album, Mi Plan, just to please her daughter.

"I had English writer's block so I decided to make an album in Spanish," she said. "I played it to my daughter and she said to me, 'Mummy there are too many slow songs. You need more fast songs.'

"So mummy went back to the studio and put a couple more fast songs on the album.

"She's like a little A and R person and is pretty musical for her age."

Do you think Madonna looks good at 50?

Madame Tussauds Hong Kong launches Madonna Dance Promotion

As part of the lead-up to Madame Tussauds Hong Kong's unveiling of Madonna's wax figure, the attraction is calling all Hong Kong locals to compete in an online 'dance-off' with the Queen of Pop.

Competitors have until December 11, 2009, to submit their own dance moves on video to Madame Tussauds Hong Kong, set to Celebration, the first single off the Material Girl's recent greatest hits album also titled Celebration: particularly apt as the competition will be played out through the festive season.

Participants will be judged and shortlisted via open online voting on YouTube and by representatives of Madame Tussauds Hong Kong. Five finalists from the YouTube competition will then be invited to compete in-person for the ultimate prize. They will be judged by a panel consisting of popular local celebrities, dance experts and representatives from prize sponsors and Madame Tussauds Hong Kong.

General Manager of Madame Tussauds Hong Kong and Shanghai, Bret Pidgeon said, "At a time when we are all in the mood to celebrate, this dance competition is really going to kick the festivities up a notch. While Madonna has made some of the best dance videos in history, I am sure some of our local dancers could really give her a run for her money. Set to a song that would make even the most sedentary of us want to get up and dance, I can't wait to see the outcome."

There will be a total of three winners which will be announced at the official unveiling of Madonna's latest figure on December 17, 2009.

Madonna wears bullet proof vest in brazil

Madonna is brave -- but why take chances? Her Madgesty insisted on wearing a bullet-proof vest under her black leather jacket on a visit to the Dona Marta shantytown in Rio the other day, the Globo newspaper reported. Madonna -- accompanied by the governor of Rio de Janeiro state, Sergio Cabral, and a platoon of bodyguards -- spent 40 minutes in the lawless favela having raised $10 million from local businessmen to build a school there, like the one she built in Malawi.

Entertainment Weekly turning into tabloid trash

in this weeks upcoming issue,Entertainment Weekly talk about Guy Ritchies new movie, SHERLOCK HOLMES but its main focus is on his divorce with Madonna and how he managed to work during that ;difficult period;, in his life, ..yawn

one commenter said it best:

Of course the divorce didn't bother him. I'd be happy too if my future ex-wife was worth $700 million dollars and I was going to $76 mill! Oh yeah, and Steve, it was the other way around. Madonna got sick of him. He was a rude and verbally abusive husband who would constantly degrade Madonna to the point she was in tears. SO glad Madonna sucked the life force out of him. He was only ever good before Madonna. Just like Madonna was only ever good when she was single.

JESUS WORKING THE DJ BOOTH AT PENTHOUSE

last night in NYC, Dj Jesus spun at an exclusive party at the RIVINGTON Hotel, at the top floor, called the PENTHOUSE. Celebrity sitings included, Christian of Project Runway Fame. The Music was good, and got better as the night progressed. I think Jesus has career as a DJ cause he has alot of fun energy, easy going, and ads a young fresh vibe to his mixes. It wont be long, i'm sure, till we see him collaborate on some remixes for one of Madonnas futures singles!

Rare Madonna tape up for bids

from NBC:

Another unique item is a demo tape an unknown performer named Madonna made in 1979 to send to record companies in an attempt to get a recording contract. Accompanied by an acoustic guitar, it's just Madonna, her music unadorned by post-production magic and elaborate orchestration. The songs on the tape include "All My Love," "Hear Me" (a song that evolved into "Shine a Light"), "Simon Says" (which became the familiar "Love Express") and "Little Lost Boy."

Julien estimates the tape will bring $1,000 to $2,000, noting that the Material Girl still holds the copyrights to all the songs.

Madonna delares her love for Brazil

M and her boy toy Jesus were in Brazil for the past week to help set up a new children's charity. 

During her visit, Madge managed to secure a $7 million dollars donation for Success for Kids from Brazil's richest man, Eike Batista. 

That's all in a days work for Madonna! She met the billionaire at his estate on the island of Angra Dos Reis on Saturday and after a brief discussion, Batista agreed to fund a large proportion of her latest charitable venture.

Madonna was left in tears as she declared her love for the country, saying: "I worship Brazil." 

Madonna does definitely worship all things Brazil! Her boy toy is proof of that!

Now Madonna sets her sights on saving Brazil's children as she teams up with the country's richest man

She's already put millions into her adopted children's home country of Malawi, and now it looks like Madonna has set her sights on saving the youngsters of Brazil.

The 51-year-old singer is setting up a new Brazilian children's charity Success for Kids and managed to secure a $7million donation from the country's richest man.

During her five day trip to the South American country with boyfriend Jesus Luz, Madonna met billionaires and politicians as she tried to raise funds for her latest project.

Loaded: Billionaire Eike Batista is Brazil's richest man

Over the weekend, Madonna flew from Rio De Janeiro via helicopter to billionaire Eike Batista's lavish home on the island of Angra Dos Reis (Cove of Kings).

Madonna was invited to the father-of-two's estate on Saturday to further discuss their new project after Batista agreed to fund a large proportion of her latest charitable venture.

On Thursday, Madonna and Batista, 52, dined together with some of Brazil's most powerful men, including Rio de Janeiro Governor Sergio Cabral and the city's Mayor Eduardo Paes.

Over dinner, Batista, who has an estimated $7.5billion fortune, asked how much Madonna needed to set up her charity's initial projects.

After already raising $3million earlier in the week, Madonna said she was aiming for a total of $10million, so Batista offered to make up the difference.

An emotional Madonna broke down in tears after Batista disclosed his generous offer.

At the dinner, Madonna declared her love for the country, saying: 'I worship Brazil.'

In an attempt to sell herself as a successful philanthropist, Madonna spoke about her Raising Malawi charity - which also involves the Kabbalah - and the work she has done in the African country.

Television host Luciano Huck, who attended the dinner, told local press how he was 'very impressed' by her plans and that she was a 'truly special person'.

Madonna hopes the project will see many impoverished youngsters get the chance to go to school. The programme will start with 10 schools, with plans to expand to 150 in Rio and Sao Paulo.

 

Success For Kids was previously known as Spirituality For Kids, a children's charity set up by Madonna's close friend Karen Berg, mother of Rabbi Michael Berg, leader of the Kabbalah Centre.

During her short trip to Brazil, Madonna was also given a tour of Rio's Morro Dona Marta slum with the city's governor Cabral.

She also met her boyfriend's mother Cristiane Regina Da Silva - who at 36 is 15 years younger than Madonna.

Mining tycoon Batista is one of the few billionaires who has grown richer during the worldwide recession.

Last year, he gained $900million in his net worth, moving him from number three to one in the list of Brazil's richest men and number 61 in Forbes magazine's list of the world's richest people.

Batista, whose father Elicer Batista is former mining minister and executive at mining giant Companhia Vale do Rio Doce, was previously married to Playboy model Luma de Oliveira.

Earlier this year, Batista donated $4.5million to Rio's successful bid to host the 2016 summer Olympics.
