Madonna loves "Its a Wonderful Life''

Madonna grew up wishing beloved actor James Stewart was her real father because she adored him in festive film It's A Wonderful Life.

The pop superstar admits she always makes time to watch the Christmas-themed classic during the holidays - and it always takes her back to her childhood.

She says, "I love the message of it; I think it's so beautiful. I grew up wishing that Jimmy Stewart was my father. The story of wanting it all and having it all and then losing it all and then realising what's important, it's like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz - 'There's no place like home'.

"It's kind of corny and cliche but, to me, it's a classic story that stands the test of time. I love it. I cry every time I see it."

Madonna must pay 85k toMalawian employees

http://www.malawitoday.com/news/119435-madonna-agrees-pay-k24-million-sacked-malawi-charity-school-employees 

Pop star Madonna has reached agreement to pay K24 million to eight sacked school employees in Malawi who sued her over unpaid benefits and unjustified sackings after the collapse of her schools project.

The group of sacked workers included chief executive Anjimile Oponyo.

The singer contested that there was nothing unfair about the termination of the employees' contracts, which was necessary due to genuine economic reasons.

The staff had claimed that they were being forced to sign a discriminatory termination agreement which was "unfair and unconstitutional".

The industrial court in Blantyre however told Madonna to pay up.

Madonna had planned to build a $15 million school for girls, Raising Malawi Academy for Girls (RMAG), in Lilongwe Malawi three years ago, but the project was cancelled amid allegations of mismanagement including excessive spending on offices cars and golf membership. An audit found $3.8 million had been squandered.

Madonna, who has adopted two children from Malawi, announced in January 2011 that she was overhauling her plans for Malawi.

She said she wanted to build more community schools that would reach out to more girls than the academy, which would have offered scholarships to 500 girls from impoverished backgrounds.

However, she has not followed up her latest plans and her charity has been inactive in Malawi for more than a year.

Saturday Night Live: Madonna in Claymation!

Madonna pops up in Batman comic book!

"Batman Incorporated: Leviathan Strikes!" has some guest-stars from the pop charts.

 

As Stephanie Brown, Batgirl herself, sets out on an undercover mission at all-girls spy school St. Hadrian's, her instructors bear striking resemblances to a trio of pop favorites: Katy Perry, Rihanna and a gun-toting Lady Gaga, who blasts a photo of Superman.

 

And the bespectacled headmistress? Looks like a certain Material Girl.

 

The one-shot issue, which wraps up writer Grant Morrison's "Batman Incorporated" storyline, is out now.

 

It isn't the first time one of pop's leading ladies has appeared in the funny pages: Gaga made an official appearance in the cartoon world in Bluewater Production's "Fame: Lady Gaga" comic book in 2010. With Perry's Hollywood career heating up and Rihanna set for a role in next year's "Battleship," perhaps a big-screen "Batman" cameo could be next. There's still time, Chris Nolan.

Rihanna dressed up as Madonna

Pop star Rihanna hosted a private party in London on Sunday and reportedly dressed up as Madonna from her Like A Virgin video.
The 23-year-old had just arrived in the British capital before the final three shows of her Loud tour and decided to put on a prom party.
The We Found Love singer is said to have gone all out with her attire.
A source told British newspaper The Sun: 'Rihanna didn't scrimp on detail. She walked around the hall dressed like Madonna and put wrist corsages on all the girls.
'When she helped serve the dinner, she was teasing the guests with the zip on her dress.'
Rihanna has two dates left on her Loud tour which finishes tomorrow at London's O2 Arena after a performance at the same venue tonight.

The madonna leaks investigation catches leaker in spain


(Reuters) - Spanish police arrested a 31-year-old man Wednesday and charged him with illegally leaking an early recording of a new Madonna song on the internet.

At least one demo recording of "Give Me All Your Love" was posted on the web in November, two months before the planned release of Madonna's first new album since 2008's "Hard Candy."

Police did not give the name of the man arrested in the city of Zaragoza in northern Spain, but said his initials were J.M.R. and that he was a big Madonna fan. He was charged and released, a police statement said.

The "Madonnaleaks" investigation began after lawyers for the singer -- who said in November that she was very upset over the leak -- traced the posting to Spain. Police said they found recordings of the song in a search of the suspect's belongings.

Intellectual property watchdgos have targeted Spain as one of the world's largest copyright violators. The Socialist government, which left office this week, prepared a bill aimed at shutting down file-sharing web sites providing copyrighted material. But the law was never sent to Parliament.

Stream the Super Bowl Live online and on your phone for the first time!

Want to watch the Super Bowl on your phone? For the first time, there's a live stream for that.
NBC's broadcasts of four major football games – the two Saturday wild card games, the Pro Bowl and the Super Bowl — will be streamed live at NBCSports.com, NFL.com and through Verizon's NFL mobile app, for the first time, the NFL announced today.
Verizon customers will be able to use their laptops, smart phones and tablets to watch the "NBC Postseason Extra" stream, which will launch with the televised broadcast of the wild card games on Jan. 7 , followed by the Pro Bowl on Jan. 29 and Super Bowl XLVI on Feb. 5, hosted in Indianapolis.
The service will include additional camera angles, highlights, talent interaction, live stat updates as well as instant replay.
NFL spokeswoman Joanna Hunter said the application will allow you to replay key moments over and over again in case you missed that incredible toe-drag touchdown or you had to leave your Super Bowl party to pick up an extra bag of chips.
"We don't see the online offering serving as anyone's primary screen," Hunter said. "We anticipate that our fans will still be gathering around the television screen on Super Bowl Sunday. … We see the computer as a complimentary screen."
Not to worry, those unforgettable Super Bowl ads will be included as part of the replay package too.
Hunter said that the streams will be through Verizon only because the mobile carrier has a pre-existing relationship with the league and NBC. In addition NBC is the only network that already streams football games live and in their entirety for free domestically, Hunter said.
"The technology is already in place," she said.
NBC has been streaming their "Sunday Night Football" telecasts for the past four seasons, typically averaging 200,000 to 300,000 viewers, compared with 21 million for their live telecasts.
Last year's Super Bowl, in which the Green Bay Packers defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers, 31-25, was the most watched television program in U.S. history, racking in a whooping 111 million viewers.
The rights to the Super Bowl currently rotates every year between NBC, FOX and CBS. Madonna will perform at the Super Bowl XLVI half-time show.

Madonna is just like everybody else, says 'W.E.'s Katie McGrath - Movies News - Digital Spy

BYOB Night out in NYC




Madonna took her own wine when she went out to dinner on Saturday night (17.12.11).
The 53-year-old singer and her boyfriend Brahim Zaibat dined out at the Osteria Cotta on New York's Upper West Side, and surprised fellow guests when she whipped out her own bottle of alcohol and two crystal glasses.
An onlooker told the New York Post newspaper: "She brought her own red wine in a bag, along with two beautiful crystal glasses.
"They poured the wine and immediately put the bottle back in the bag, so nobody could see what it was. At the end, they took the empty wine bottle and the glasses with them. We couldn't figure out if Madonna prefers specific wine or is a total germaphobe."
The couple ordered an arugula salad, pizza margherita, bruschetta and a side of roasted cauliflower.
When they finished, the 25-year-old dancer picked up the bill and paid by credit card, and the 'Celebration' hitmaker ordered him to tip well.
Madonna recently claimed she will only date men who her children - Lourdes, 15, Rocco, 11, David, six, and Mercy, five - will respect.
She said: "It's important that my children admire and respect this partner that I would choose for myself. Especially for my sons, who have their father but they need a male role model as well.
"So I need to keep this in mind: What is this person modeling to my sons, what kind of man is he, what values does he have, what energy is he giving off? Because they are impressionable. It's so important."

Why is Madonnas Masterpiece ineligible for the Best Original Song Oscar?



Though Madonna is clearly beloved by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association - having been nominated for a total of six Golden Globes (five for Best Original Song - Motion Picture and one for Best Actress in a Motion Picture - Comedy/Musical) and won once (in the latter category for "Evita") - the venerable performer simply can't catch a break from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Case in point: "Masterpiece", the Material Girl's now-Golden Globe-nominated song contribution to her second directorial effort "W.E.", was not among the 39 tunes announced by the Academy today as eligible for next year's Best Original Song Oscar. So what gives? Was it something she said?

As it turns out, the snub isn't personal - "Masterpiece" really isn't eligible. See, in order to qualify for the category, the song in question needs to:

a) Consist of words and music, both of which are original and used specifically for the film; and

b) Be used either in the body of the film, or as the "first music cue" in the closing credits (i.e. the first song that plays once the screen fades to black).

The latter of the above two criteria appears to be the problem for "Masterpiece", which isn't featured in the context of the film itself and also happens to be the second song featured during the movie's closing crawl. (The first being a continuation of composer Abel Korzeniowski's score.)

Maybe the Oscar-obsessed Weinsteins figured the Academy would overlook the established rules when coming up with the Best Original Song eligibles - you know, because they're the Weinsteins? Or were they simply unaware of the Academy's specific requirements before sending out those "Masterpiece"-touting"W.E." screeners?

In any case, looks like poor old Madge is once again being denied the opportunity to add "Oscar nominee/winner" to her substantial list of accomplishments (particularly given that "W.E." isn't expected to pick up any other substantial nods), a designation that I can't imagine she isn't at least a little bit hungry for (she isMadonna, after all).
But hey, buck up kiddo; there's always next year. And just remember - the Hollywood Foreign Press Association loves you no matter what.
What do you think of the Academy's Best Original Song rules? Should the eligibility requirements be loosened? Sound off with your comments below!

Madonna out of tune with Oscars as 'W.E.' song not among 39 eligible



Madonna racked up her fifth Golden Globe bid for songwriting last week when "Masterpiece" from her film "W.E." was nominated. Her fans will be disappointed to hear the end credits track isn't among the 39 songs deemed eligible for Oscar consideration. Hers is the only high-profile omission in a competitive race.

Madonna on Fame vs. Talent

On Madonnas recent interview with Anderson Cooper, he asked her to
weight in on the latest string of reality stars , who have no real
talent but have acquired a huge amount of fame.
Madonna had, as usually the best answer, she said simply;
"I always say Fame can get you in the door, but it takes talent to
keep you in the room."

Jennifer Saunders on getting Madonna on to AbFab

Source : stylist.co.uk
We love your Madonna impression. Is it true you tried for years to get her on French And Saunders?
Oh, yes. Madonna always said no. I think we were under the mistaken impression that the person we were talking to was somehow her PR or her best friend and I don't think she was. She kept saying [in American accent], "Oh, Madonna would love to do it!" I don't think she even asked Madonna. She was aware of the show. She sent a nice note once. It became a sort of a joke that actually, if she ever did say yes, we'd probably say no!




Madonna sends support to Molly meldrum

Fans and celebrities the world over are sending their love to popular australian music critic Molly Meldrum who is in a coma after falling off a ladder at his Melbourne home.
None other than Madonna has thrown her support behind Molly, telling the Sunday Herald Sun that "he is a one and only."
"I've always adored Molly and I'm praying around the clock."
Molly's long-term pal Kylie Minogue tweeted her love to Molly as well: "#LoveYouMolly Sending LOTS of love to Molly Meldrum ... Get well soon x :)"
Michael Buble has told the industry legend to "fight back" and Molly has reportedly received flowers from Buble, Madonna and Cher.
His manager Mark Klemmens, one of the only people allowed to visit Molly, said he was unconscious and "completely out of it."

"He might be able to recognise voices, but they (intensive care unit patients) never remember.

"It's horrible, it's very upsetting, but you have just got to be optimistic,'' he added.
A spokesman for the Alfred Hospital in Melbourne says Molly is in a critical condition but still stable.

Madonna super bowl performance

I imagine madonna will be performing a least 1 song on guitar!

Billboard magazine had a poll and and readers picked these 4 songs to the set list, as we know now that Nicki Minaj and M.I.A, will be joining madonna on stage to her new single, " Give Me All Your Luvin'" what are the remaining 4 songs?

With the announcement that Madonna will be performing at the Super Bowl XLVI halftime show on Feb. 5, 2012, fans immediately began wondering what songs the Material Girl will perform on one of the biggest stages in rock and roll. Which classics should she play? What modern singles will sound best at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis?

With two months to go until the answers are revealed, Billboard.com allowed fans to vote for Madonna's ultimate Super Bowl setlist on Monday, with each of her defining eras (early 1980s, mid/late 1980s, 1990s and 2000s) given one representative song. With thousands of vote cast in each category, which Madonna anthems made the cut? 

1. Holiday
2. Vogue
3. Hung Up
4.Express Yourself

What do you want madonna to perform?

My top pick would be Celebration!

Madonna single handidly brings Couture house back to life

And it seems that Madonna's interest in Simpson - the American
socialite who prompted King Edward VIII to abdicate the throne of
England in 1936 - has given the clothiers who styled the historical
figure a new lease of life.
Madonna is now benefiting from their period designs: "I have been
wearing Vionnet, who made a lot of the Duchess' (Simpson) dresses and
they're a couture house that closed down for many years and they're
sort of redoing their shop. They made a lot of Andrea's costumes for
the film."

Cartier said No to madonna!

Madonna had begged Cartier to give her jewelry, that was used in the
film, w.e., a bracelet that they made specifically for Andrea in the
film, w.e. but they turned her down,
On the Anderson cooper show, madonna said something similar and
Anderson replied, "they said no to madonna"??!!
Madonna replied "would you stop that Anderson!, I'm. Not god"!
We couldn't disagree with her more., lol
The good news is that which she didn't mention, was that Cartier, did
in fact give madonna a bracelet ,that they made specifically for her.
