William Orbit interview on Madonna M.D.N.A.

Tonight, William Orbit guest edited the BBC World Services arts programme 'The Strand' this Wednesday the 29th. From Bush House in The Strand, London.
He was interviewed by Marc Coles and of course talked about Madonna and MDNA.

Here's the interview..

You've been kind of busy lately with Madonna. Was it six tracks on MDNA, the latest album which is about to come out?
WILLIAM ORBIT: It was six the last time I counted, but we keep adding special tracks.

You keep adding or she keeps adding?
WILLIAM ORBIT: She's driving the train, but I come along happily.

She always says musically you finish one another's sentences. What does that mean, musically? Give us an idea of what it's like collaborating with her?
WILLIAM ORBIT: We definitely been working together for a long time, so there's a certain telepathy. We tend to get into the guitar zone now. We get the accoustics out and do it campfire style.
I'm not a great singer, I sound like a mosquito trapped in a bottle. She's a fabulous singer, but she's very forgiving. She just wants it to work as a song. That's where we start.

You just strum it out and work it out that way?
WILLIAM ORBIT: Yeah, yeah…

You're in touch [with Madonna], you've got to work with her tomorrow?
WILLIAM ORBIT: Probably tonight… What she has decided to do is extra accoustic versions. There's some pretty hard, rocking tracks. There's a very different variation of styles. Mostly pretty savage, actually. The singles that have come out aren't necessarily representative.

She wants to do some sort of more downbeat version?
WILLIAM ORBIT: Downbeat…kind of the banjo and things like that. "

Stars Gather at Madonna's Fifth Annual Oscar Party

Gucci sponsored the post-Academy Awards bash, gifting celebs with special luggage that was embossed on site.



You don't think Madonna's going to just give your average post-Oscar party, right? A goody bag with a lipstick in it? Not on your life. They don't call her the Material Girl for nothing. No less that Gucci sponsored her fifth annual Oscar night party, which was held in the home of her manager Guy Oseary. 

For a guest list that included such heavyweights as Leonardo DiCaprio, Salma Hayek-Pinault(who's husband owns the Gucci Group), Emma Stone, Gwen Stefani, Jack Nicholson, Davidand Victoria Beckham, Kristen Wiig, Bradley Cooper, Jodie Foster, Colin Firth, Harvey Weinstein, Mila KunisPenelope Cruz, Katy Perry and Sandra Bullock, it had to be a one of a kind evening -- and God knows, there were lots of competing parties to which they were invited.
So Gucci -- who dressed Christian and Sibi Bale, Robert Downey Jr. and Cameron Diaz for the Oscars — flew in a special Florentine artisan, whose work bench was set up at Oseary's home so he could hand-emboss the initials of attending guests on signature pieces of Gucci luggage that they received as gifts. As if that weren't enough, stars were given pairs of Gucci sunglasses to be able to deal with the light of dawn as the sun came up the day after Oscars. For those jumping on flights, they were obviously completely prepared. 
Now, will we see a Gucci artisan showing up at cool parties around town in the future? We doubt it. Not everyone's Madonna. But if Salma were to host an Oscar party

Madonna to open innovative new gym in Chile

Santiago will be the new home of the superstar´s third gym.

"Material Girl" star and fitness fanatic Madonna will bring her very own gym chain called Hard Candy Fitness (HCF) to Chile's capital this April.

The announcement comes just months before the launch of the artist's latest album, scheduled for release in March, titled "Gimme all your Luvin.'"

madonna-gym 

Gym-goers in Santiago looking for a body like the 54-year-old Queen of Pop can expect zumba, cardio kickboxing, and Latin moves classes as well as being able to sign up for dance and toning classes that reflect the superstar's own style of workout.

Madonna's collaborator and CEO and founding partner of Energy Fitness, Alex Wiesner, announced the opening on Tuesday. He promises that the gym will be like no other in the country.

"Hard Candy will focus on the playful aspects of dance and toning. We will bring Chile group classes created personally by Madonna and her international team of experts," Wiesner told press. "Our members will be able to enjoy exercising using activities that will be unique in South America and of the highest quality."

HCF already has two centers. The first opened in November 2010 in Mexico City and was followed in December 2011 by another in Moscow. Santiago will complete the trio of gyms already renowned for being lavish, top-of-the-range gyms offering fitness experience closer to that of a five-star hotel.

"If any of you have seen my shows, you know that I don't skimp on them, and the same is true for the gym. We spend what it takes to make a globally first-class gym," Madonna said following the opening of the first Hard Candy gym in Mexico City.

Madonna, as with her other two gyms, has been very hands-on with the project from designing fitness programs, dance classes and the layout and decor of the center to advising on the music played in the gym.

The name Hard Candy Fitness was taken from Madonna's album released in 2008 and is a combination of "hard body" (toned body) and "eye candy" (pleasing to the eye), two concepts that sum up the spirit of Madonna's fitness mission.

The almost 10,000-square-foot gym in Santiago, located in the Parque Araucano mall in Las Condes, has cost $3 million to build and will have two levels, a spa, and two heated pools, one semi-Olympic and the other equipped with Jacuzzi technology for relaxation.

Other features include comfortable locker rooms with steam and sauna areas, personal trainers certified by HCF, and the latest in cardio and strength equipment.

The gym will also have a Hard Candy Energy Bar - a lounge area, which will offer healthy food as well as displaying artwork and music from some of Madonna's favorite artists.

The real highlight, however, Wiesner says, are the group classes designed by Madonna's personal trainer, Nicole Winhoffer.

"They are very motivating, very entertaining and they change quite often, every three months there are upgrades to the group class programs in order to constantly be offering something fresh, new and different," Wiesner told La Tecera.

The project is a collaboration between Madonna, her manager Guy Oseary, Wiesner and Mark Mastrov, a leader in the global fitness industry, creator of New Evolution Ventures (NeV) and CEO of 24 Hour Fitness.

The news comes amid rumors of a possible visit to the country by the celebrity in late 2012 as a part of her world tour. Whether the songstress herself will attend the opening of the gym like she did with the first HCF opening in Mexico has yet to be confirmed.

It is yet to be seen if the gym will be popular with Chileans, who were recently recorded to have the sixth highest rate of child obesity in e OECD and whether many will fork out the US$125 monthly membership as well as a one-time enrollment fee of US$210.  The gym is, however, encouraging Chileans to register early online at www.energy.cl or at a stand in Parque Arauco mall for a reduced membership rate of US$88.

Mel C on meeting Madonna

Mel C's Madonna nerves

Mel C is 'useless' around Madonna because she is such a fan.

The former Spice Girl has met her musical idol numerous times and even enjoyed a memorable dinner with her but Mel admitted she gets nervous in the 'Girls Gone Wild' singer's company.

She told The Sun newspaper: 'I've met Madonna a few times. She once called me in my hotel room to invite me to dinner - I was convinced it was one of the girls winding me up. I'm a bit useless in her company being such a fan. I think I may even have offended her once.'

Mel also revealed she and her Spice Girl bandmates Emma Bunton, Victoria Beckham, Mel B and Geri Halliwell are closer than ever because they are not in competition with each other.

She added: 'Luckily, we aspire to different things and we're very proud of each other.'

Along with working on her solo career, Mel raises daughter Scarlet with partner Thomas Starr, who she met in 2002 during a holiday in Barbados and Mel admitted she never thought the relationship would last.

She said: 'Tom is lovely and tall, has big blue eyes and a cheeky grin. We had a good old dance to The Prodigy and I thought 'He's my kinda guy'.

'I was sure it would fizzle out when we got back to the UK but it didn't - hurray!'

Madonnas costume designer teases us about the tour!

W.E.'s Oscar-nominated costume designer on working with Madonna - and why Cartier wants to destroy her replicas of Wallis Simpson's jewellery 


 

Arianne Phillips

Oscar-nominated: Arianne Phillips designed the costumes for Madonna's film W.E.

Madonna's directing skills on W.E. may have received some mixed reviews, but when it comes to costumes, the response was universally positive.

So feted were Arianne Phillips's efforts at dressing lead actors Andrea Riseborough and James D'Arcy, she won a Costume Designer's Guild award last night, and is up for an Academy Award this weekend.

Now, in a new interview, the stylist, who had long collaborated with Madonna on costumes for her tours, describes her painstaking research into the clothing and jewellery worn by Edward and Wallis Simpson, and how she recreated their looks for the big screen.

She told Refinery29.com: 'I knew [Wallis] was fashionable, but I didn't realize the kind of scope of what a devoted couture client she was.

'I didn't she know she was a client of Gabrielle Chanel or Madeleine Vionnet. I unearthed all of these cool treasure troves of incredible Parisian haute couture from the '30s. It was fantastic!'

Ms Phillips revealed that recreating the jewellery - an important part of the film's narrative - was one of her biggest challenges.

'To use the real clothes and jewelry that belonged to the Duke and Duchess was an impossibility because it's privately owned or in museums,' she explained.

'I knew we needed to reach out to Cartier because the cross bracelet was famously the centerpiece of the film. I needed the context of what their jewelry was about.'

Enlisting the help of jeweller Neil Lane, she told how they scoured auctions for original pieces, and even persuaded Cartier and Van Cleef & Arpels to make replicas. Not that she - or indeed anyone else - gets to keep them.

W.E.

Painstaking research: The stylist, who dressed actress Andrea Riseborough for the lead role, discovered that Wallis Simpson was a loyal couture client of Gabrielle Chanel and Madeleine Vionnet

1940: Portrait of the Duchess of Windsor
W.E.

Ms Phillips persuaded Cartier to create a replica of the priceless cross bracelet that the Duchess of Windsor (left) was often seen wearing. The replica worn by Miss Riseborough (right) though, will now be destroyed

'We recreated 10 pieces with Cartier,' she revealed. 'They own them because it's their design and copyright. They are housed in Switzerland, I believe. 

 

'They are going to dispose of them and destroy them this year, just because it's like trying to recreate a Picasso or another great work of art. It would devalue the original that's privately owned.'

W.E.

Historical accuracy: Ms Phillips' attention to detail is clear to see in the W.E. wedding scenes...

Edward, Duke of Windsor, and formerly Edward VIII of England, and his wife Wallis Simpson, are seen, 03 June 1937, during their wedding, at Chateau de Candé, Monts, France

...She has closely referenced the actual headpiece and gown worn by Wallis at her 1937 wedding to the Duke of Windsor at the Chateau de Candé in Monts, France

Van Cleef & Arpels also owns the bracelet it recreated for the film, but has not told the stylist what it intends to do with it.

Designing the costumes for W.E. also offered Ms Phillips the opportunity to work alongside Madonna. But for a woman who has styled the star for the red carpet and countless tours, this was nothing new - and in fact the process was remarkably similar.

'We still had the same kind of conversations,' she said 'She's been directing me for 14 years and is the captain of her own ship.'

Madonna

Longtime collaborators: Ms Phillips has worked with Madonna, pictured performing at this year's Super Bowl, for over 14 years, and will co-ordinate the costumes for her upcoming tour

She explained that the difference was really in seeing Madonna on the other side of the camera, as a crew member.

'She's so disarming, though,' Ms Phillips continued. 'She's very focused on the work, and doesn't treat anyone really any differently. But you still really have to step up to the plate!'

Ms Phillips will be returning to her stylist roots to design costumes for Madonna's upcoming tour, which she says is top secret, but promises 'will be the most incredible tour of all time'.

'You can get a hint of that from the Super Bowl, although it won't look like that at all,' she teased.
