Madonna to Introduce The Pussy Riot at Amnesty International Concert February 5th
Madonna will introduce Masha and Nadya, two members of Russia's Pussy Riot art collective, at Amnesty International's Bringing Human Rights Home concert taking place at Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Wednesday February 5, it was announced today by Amnesty International.

"I am honored to introduce my fellow freedom fighters Masha and Nadya from Pussy Riot. I have admired their courage and have long supported their commitment and the sacrifices they have made in the name of freedom of expression and human rights," commented Madonna.

Tickets are on sale from Ticketmaster. Other confirmed acts include Imagine Dragons, The Flaming Lips, Ms. Lauryn Hill, Tegan and Sara, The Fray, Cold War Kids, Colbie Caillat and Cake. Masha and Nadya were imprisoned for their participation in the Pussy Riot art collective. Hundreds of thousands of online actions by Amnesty International supporters helped bring about their freedom.

Madonna, a longstanding defender of the Pussy Riot art collective's right to speak out in defiance of restrictions in their homeland, is part of a star-studded tradition of prominent artists using the power of music to articulate their support for human rights on behalf of Amnesty International.

The diva singer had her crew carry her guitar case as she walked on ahead giving the photographers a cheeky glimpse of her golden teeth. 

The star first flashed her shiny mouth piece back in August and has been spotted out and about in it on several occasions.

Rumor: Madonna to play Brooklyn Concert Feb 5th!

Madonna Rumored To Be Playing Amnesty International Concert In Brooklyn
Earlier this week it was announced that the massive Amnesty International concert at Barclays Center on February 5th will feature two members of Pussy Riot, who were just released from Russian prison camps last month

 The concert is a return to the Amnesty concerts of the 1980s and '90s (they stopped in 1998), and in that spirit some legendary talent has been expected to return with it—we now have it on good authority that Madonna has been confirmed to play at the show. Madonna was outspoken about her support of Pussy Riot while touring in 2012 She also issued this call to action at the time: "I protest the conviction and sentencing of Pussy Riot to a penal colony for two years for a 40 second performance extolling their political opinions. Even if one disagrees with the location or how they chose to express themselves, the sentence is too harsh and in fact is inhumane. I call on all those who love freedom to condemn this unjust punishment. I urge artists around the world to speak up in protest against this travesty.

They've spent enough time in jail. I call on ALL of Russia to let Pussy Riot go free." Organizers have promised big announcements up until the date of the show, so expect more of these surprises in the next week.

Trove of 1980s Madonna pop culture awaits auction

The parents of Martin Burgoyne, Madonna's former roommate, will send collection of photos, art and drawings to auction next month. ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Long before Newsweek called her a "tarted-up floozy," way before she married and had babies and adopted babies, and a lifetime before she opened an Instagram account, Madonna was a young woman in New York trying to make it big. That ambition — and a good bit of innocence — can be seen in a collection of photos, art and drawings that are on the auction block Feb. 9 in St. Petersburg, Fla.
The collection is owned by the parents of Martin Burgoyne, an artist, Studio 54 bartender and Madonna's best friend during that time. Burgoyne and Madonna befriended each other before she became famous. They were roommates and he played a huge role in Madonna's early career. He managed her first tour and drew the cover image of Madonna for her 1983 'Burning Up' EP album cover. They partied with artists Andy Warhol, Keith Haring and others. He was raised in England and went to New York to study art at the Pratt Institute.
Madonna and Burgoyne also supported each other emotionally and financially during hard times — after she was raped and when Burgoyne contracted AIDS.
Burgoyne died in 1986 after battling that disease. He was 23. Madonna wrote a song about him called "In This Life" that was on her 1992 album 'Erotica.'
For decades, his parents have kept their son's memorabilia from that era private — until now. Mary Dowd, the co-owner of Myers Fine Art, said Burgoyne's parents live in the Tampa Bay area and are in their 80s.
 They are selling the collection at an auction. "I think they came to a point in their lives where they figured that it was time to do something with the collection," Dowd said. "And so they phone us up and asked us if we would come take a look at it, which we did, and so we saw the breadth of the collection, it was really pretty incredible."
There's an original hand-drawn portrait of Burgoyne by Andy Warhol. There's an original invitation to a fundraiser for Burgoyne by Keith Haring — a party written about in the New York Times in September 1986 as AIDS was devastating a generation of mostly young gay men, including Burgoyne.
The story is heartbreakingly sad, not only because of its foreshadowing of Burgoyne's death, but of prevalent attitudes in that era toward those with HIV and AIDS. Studio 54 owner Steve Rubell noted in the story that "people could be in the same room with someone infected with the AIDS virus without contracting it." Madonna was at that party, the Times noted. But in Burgoyne's collection in Florida, there are no photos from that party, only from the earlier, happier years. And then there are the Madonna photos. Some are candid Polaroids of her making goofy faces with Burgoyne. Others are black and whites, intended for an album cover, of Madonna looking poised and fragile. There are also numerous photos of Burgoyne, a handsome young man in a white shirt and suspenders.
Some of the photos were taken by Burgoyne, said Dowd, while it's unclear who took others. She said it's possible that Andy Warhol took some of the Polaroids, because they date to same years that he experimented with Polaroid portraits.
Dowd said one of the more remarkable items in the collection is Burgoyne's sketchbook, in which he inked photo booth sessions of Madonna, and a full-color sketch for her 'Burning Up' EP album cover. The image is totally '80s, all bright block colors. Madonna sports short hair and thick eyebrows. "If you're an enthusiast of entertainment back in the early 80s — and that was a heyday and pivotal time I think — this is kind of a real step back in time to that period," Dowd said.
Dowd isn't sure how much each piece will go for — the original Warhol portrait of Burgoyne should fetch a good price, she thinks — but she's secretly hoping Madonna herself will hear about the auction and bid on some items.
"It seems like it's something she should have for her historical archives," said Dowd. "It's a big part of her life, from the beginning."

KANYE: 'MADONNA IS THE GREATEST VISUAL MUSICAL ARTIST' WEST HAS HEAPED PRAISE ON MADGE

KANYE: 'MADONNA IS THE GREATEST VISUAL MUSICAL ARTIST'

WEST HAS HEAPED PRAISE ON MADGE DURING STEVE MCQUEEN CHAT...


Kanye West has praised Madonna, branding her "the greatest visual musical artist".
During his chat with director Steve McQueen for Interview magazine, Yeezy spoke very fondly of the Queen of Pop when addressing the topic of his own contribution to popular culture. 
Speaking of Madge, the Bound 2 rapper exclaimed: "Madonna, I think, is the greatest visual musical artist that we've ever had.
"If you look at her photo log, the photographers that she was able to work with throughout her career framed her in the proper way. It was the proper context. 
"It was that visual that made sure that everything was gonna cut through in a certain way."
West went on to speak of his other talents, aside from rapping, explaining: "I'm a trained fine artist. I went to art school from the time I was 5 years old. I was, like, a prodigy out of Chicago. 
"I'd been in national competitions from the age of 14. I got three scholarships to art schools - to St. Xavier, to the American Academy of Art, and to the Art Institute of Chicago - and I went to the American Academy of Art. 
"So the joke that I've actually played on everyone is that the entire time, I've actually just been a fine artist."
He added: "I just make sonic paintings, and these sonic paintings have led me to become whatever people think of when you say 'Kanye West'."

Back on her feet! Madonna ditches the crutches but not the disguise as she makes her way through JFK airport

Just last week, Madonna was hobbling around New York on crutches, but on Tuesday she was walking on her own at JFK Airport.
The Material Girl, 55, allegedly bruised a bone in her foot while performing dance moves in high heels, but she appears to have made a quick recovery.
Although she had an escort at the airport Tuesday, she needed no help moving about.

The mom of four was covered head to toe under layers of clothing, just as she was last week.
She wore a black puffer coat with a fur-lined hood over black cropped pants and a hoodie with black stockings and black combat-style boots.
Her warm accessories nearly disguised her completely. Hazards of the job: The pop star injured herself while performing energetic dance moves in high heels

They included a fur stocking cap with long, braided tassels, a black, gray and white scarf tied around her neck and pulled up over her mouth and nose, where they met her large sunglasses, and sheer, black fingerless gloves.
On Friday, the megastar was in a similar outfit, completely covered in a fur-lined Mackage coat and a bandana worn across her face while also wearing large dark sunglasses.
Only then, she walked on crutches as she nursed her injured foot.
No sign of pain: Madonna was still disguised under layers of clothing, but she was more mobile than last week
