UK The Voice Wants Madonna

Madonna is being lined up as a guest performer on the UK version of The Voice, it has been reported.

A source told the Daily Star Sunday that producers on the hit BBC show were keen to secure an appearance from the pop icon - who is currently promoting her latest album MDNA.

The mole said: "Getting Madge on to sing is bound to pull in the viewers. You don't get much bigger than her - she's a living legend.

"The show has regularly been getting ratings of over 10 million. Having Madonna, plus the all-important results, could push it past the 12 million mark.

"The X Factor's finest hour was getting Britney Spears on - but there's no doubt Madonna is a much bigger name. Simon Cowell will be furious if The Voice upstages him with a massive guest performer like Madonna in its first series."

Lana Del Rey performed on last night's results show, while Emeli Sande is set to sing on next Sunday's show.

We told you on Friday how the start of Madge's world tour had been delayed by two days due to production issues.

Perfumer to the stars was intimated by Madonna

Madonna's perfumer suggests the popstar remains a hard to woman to please

Perfumer Stephen Nilsen has a starry client list, but none have been as famous, or (somewhat unsurprisingly) demanding, as Her Madjesty

"Madonna has no patience for stupid people," said expert perfumer Stephen Nilsen, at the recent London launch of the popstar's debut perfume. But as the veteran "nose" discovered, she doesn't make it all that easy on the clever ones, either. The creator of fragrances for Sarah Jessica Parker, Tom Ford and Tommy Hilfiger, Nilsen is comfortable working with the biggest names in the industry. But even he was thrown by Madonna's chilly demeanour on their first meetings to produce her perfume Truth or Dare, during which she refused to remove her sunglasses. "It was a little intimidating," he admitted. And that was when he was granted an audience. More often than not in those first months of development, Nilsen was left in the dark about the actual direction Madonna intended for her perfume.

"She told me she wanted white florals, and she loved the 'addiction' accord I created," – a blend of vanilla, caramel and amber. But it was hard to schedule face time with the busy performer, essential when trying to peg a client's tastes and establish a common vocabulary. Instead, Nilsen found himself scurrying back and forth between his Manhattan lab and Madonna's £20m Upper East Side compound every time he made a revision. "I'd throw each new sample over her 8ft-high black steel wall," he joked. Fortunately, his pitching arm was saved: "Security always magically appeared behind me when I would ring the bell, as if they knew I was coming.

"She needed the latest versions delivered by 2pm on a Friday afternoon so she could evaluate them over the weekend at her horse farm in the Hamptons."

Her Madgesty's notes would then filter back – broad critiques such as "too sweet", which given the vast palette of a perfumer, could mean any number of things. It turned into a game of pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey as the perfumer struggled to second-guess the source of Madonna's displeasure, blending endless modifications in order to secure her approval. "Once we started working together in person, it became much easier," he recalled with evident relief. As they developed their rhythm of working, Nilsen was impressed by the accuracy of Madonna's sense of smell and her increasing ability to identify individual elements. Not unexpectedly, the multimillionaire star was drawn to the most expensive raw materials in recreating the memory of her mother's perfume from more than 40 years ago, the perfumer revealed. "She has a real appreciation of luxury," he enthused. But when cautioned about safety restrictions on her favourite ingredients imposed by the International Fragrance Association (IFRA), she became exasperated. "Fuck IFRA!" she snapped at one point.

Despite having no training in the world of perfumery, Madonna was adamant that she did not want musk in Truth Or Dare's formula. "I tried to explain to her that it needed musk to round the edges, like you sand and seal a stippled wall," Nilsen remembered. In the end, he took a chance and went ahead with a version that included the much-needed musk. When he nervously presented it to Madonna, he said she smelled it sceptically, then grudgingly conceded, "OK – you were right. Leave in the musk."

After working with the expert perfumer, surely Madonna must have received quite an education in fine fragrance? Was she Eliza Doolittle to his Henry Higgins? Nilsen pauses, then responds with a sheepish smile, "I think I was the Eliza Doolittle." Oh yes? And what did Madonna teach him? "She taught me to be a better perfumer."

And how can he not be a better perfumer, given the number of Truth Or Dare variations Nilsen was required to submit before the demanding star was satisfied with her signature scent. "There were 200," he confirmed, adding that a perfume is often completed with half that number. "But I have had clients who've required even more." He may regret letting that slip if Madonna ever decides to try out more fragrances for perfume number two.

Madonnas MDNA tour starts May 31 (Date Change)

Madonna's MDNA Tour Now Opens in Tel Aviv on May 31st at Ramat Gan Stadium

LOS ANGELES, April 26, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- The highly anticipated opening of Madonna's MDNA Tour is now planned for Thursday, May 31st at Ramat Gan Stadium in Tel Aviv, two days later than previously scheduled due to production delays. The change in the opening date was announced today by promoters, Live Nation and Shuki Weiss. All tickets dated May 29th will be honored at the rescheduled May 31st event.

The Material Girl has already announced 76 concert dates in arenas, stadiums and special outdoor sites throughout Europe and North America with confirmed sales of over 1.4 million tickets to date. The MDNA tour has already sold out in Berlin (2 shows sold out), Amsterdam, Barcelona, and Istanbul (45,000 tickets sold) as well as Philadelphia, Boston, Montreal, Quebec City (70,000 tickets), New York's Yankee Stadium (73,000 tickets over 2 shows), Washington DC and the Staples Center in LA. The tour has recently announced additional concert dates in Mexico and South America, which will be followed by a visit to Australia, where Madonna has not performed in 20 years.

Along with state of the art technical components, including the largest video screens ever created, Madonna, her band and her dancers are expected to reach above and beyond her Super Bowl performance where she performed to an audience of over 117 million people around the world, the highest number of viewers in Super Bowl history.

Madonna's latest studio recording "MDNA" debuted on iTunes at the #1 spot in over 40 countries. Her newest single "Girl Gone Wild" is #1 on Billboard's Dance Club Songs Chart - her 42nd time in the top slot. She remains the artist with the most #1 songs in the chart's 35-year history. MDNA has received glowing reviews including USA Today which commented, "Madonna's MDNA is rocking and revelatory... her most personal effort to date.

The woman is pop's most durable alpha female, coolly courting fascination and controversy on her own terms." Added The Sun in the UK, "The album should be the spine of an incredible live show - just what her army of followers will want to hear."

The MDNA Tour is produced by Live Nation Global Touring and presented locally in association with Shuki Weiss.
