Remember when Lady Gaga was being touted as the new Madonna? Well, it appears the original Madonna is the new Madonna. The 56-year-old icon has been tapped to front Versace’s Spring/Summer 2015 campaign. She replaces Mother Monster as the spokesmodel for the Italian fashion house.

“Madonna is one of the true icons of Versace, and I am thrilled to have my friend and the most powerful directional artist as the face of Versace for Spring 2015,” Donatella stated.

This isn’t the first time Madge has taken on this role for the brand. The Material Girl first modeled for Versace back in 1995. This marks her fourth time as the ambassador for the label.

“It’s always exciting to be dressed head to toe in Versace and experience first-hand Donatella’s vivid imagination and passion that she has created for this collection,” Madonna shared in statement

Madonna once again steps in front of the creative lens of photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. These timeless black and white images are a far cry from the racy pics snapped by the duo for Interview magazine released earlier this week. Check out more of the ad campaign below.

With over 300 million records sold worldwide and numerous lucrative business ventures, Madonna has certainly amassed a fortune over the past three decades. According to Wealth-X, the 56-year-old icon is the world’s richest recording artist with a net worth of $800 million. With a new album on the way and plenty of mileage left, expect Madge to pad that number over the next few years. I wouldn’t expect anything else from the best-selling female recording artist of all time according to Guinness World Records.

Coming in the runner-up slot as the second wealthiest recording artist on the planet is Paul McCartney with $660 million in his bank. Rounding out the Top 3 is Dr. Dre. The hip hop mogul doesn’t have a long list of hits, but he makes the list due to selling his Beats to Apple. The youngest person to make the Top 10 is 33-year-old Beyonce. She squeaks in at the No. 10 spot with a personal fortune of $440 million. Check out the rest below.

Mert & Marcus capture The Queen of Reinvention for the December 2014 issue of Interview Magazine. Madonna has a new album on the horizon is back to her old antics to promote it. The 56-year-old poses for a titillating editorial featuring some S&M and religious imagery, with Madge once again baring her breasts.

For the accompanying interview, the “Rebel Heart” singer sits down with illusionist David Blaine for a no-holds-barred interview which covers drugs, prostitution, mediation and more. Check out some images below, along with some quotes.

On Drug Use

“I mean, I tried everything once, but as soon as I was high, I spent my time drinking tons of water to get it out of my system. As soon as I was high, I was obsessed with flushing it out of me. I was like, Okay, I’m done now.

madonna-wash-all-over-me

Poor Madonna is springing more leaks these days than a sinking inflatable boat. She needs to surround herself with people similar to those who kept Beyonce’s surprise album a major secret.

Another rumored track off her forthcoming album has leaked. Like “Rebel Heart,” “Wash All Over Me” is another Avicii EDM-driven collaboration. Both tracks in their entirety have surfaced online on multiple sites. Check them out below quickly, as I have no doubt they’ll be pulled any second now.

Based on what we’ve heard so far, it appears Madge’s 13th studio album is the second coming of Confessions On A Dance Floor. This one is going to be filled with club-ready songs designed specifically to get the gays dancing. I have to say, I’m loving both tracks and can’t wait to hear what else the 58-year-old icon has in store for us.

Demo Of Madonna’s New Single ‘Rebel Heart’ Leaks

In: Donovan, Music

The dawn of Madonna’s new era is almost upon us. The 56-year-old icon has been teasing “Rebel Heart” for months now. At long last, a snippet of her collaboration with Swedish DJ Avicii has leaked.

“I spent some time as a narcissist/Hearing the others say ‘Look at you, look at you!’/Trying to be so provocative/I said ‘Oh yeah, that was me’/All the things I did just to be seen…,” Madonna sings.

The quality of the audio isn’t the greatest since it’s only a demo but it gives a slight glimpse at the vibe Madge is going for on her upcoming 13th studio album. It’s her first since 2012′s MDNA. Along with Avicii, Ms. Ciccone reportedly worked with Diplo and Alicia Keys on her forthcoming LP. Give “Rebel Heart” a preview below.

madonna-bedtime-stories

On October 25, 1994 Madonna released her sixth studio album titled Bedtime Stories. After receiving critical and commercial backlash for her controversial Erotica LP, Madge decided to soften up her image and not be as overtly sexual. Bedtime Stories sold over two million domestically and seven copies worldwide. It was also nominated for Best Pop Album at the 38th Grammy Awards.

Inspired by R&B and new jack swing, the album featured more radio-friendly tracks. She worked with Dallas Austin, Babyface, Shep Pettibone, Herbie Hancock and Bjork to name a few. The title track, “Bedtime Story,” saw Madonna experimenting with electronic music- a sound she further explored for her next album- Grammy Award-winning Ray Of Light. It was this era that spawned one of the pop star’s best ballads in her discography- “Take A Bow.”

Take a walk down memory lane for the album’s 20th anniversary by watching the music videos released by Madonna. “Human Nature” is my favorite with “Secret” a close second. Be sure to weigh in on which of her singles were your favorite during this era

Sister Christina became an Internet sensation with her rendition of Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls Want To Have Fun” during the blind auditions on The Voice Italy. Week after week the singing nun wowed judges and viewers alike. It’s no wonder she ended up winning the second season of the singing competition. In a rather surprising move, Sister Cristina chose Madonna’s then controversial hit, “Like A Virgin” as her first single.

“I chose ‘Like a Virgin’ because I wanted it to bear witness to God’s power to move all things!” explained Cristina in a statement. “I see it as GOD’S TOUCH, when he called me to a new life, giving me back the purity and dignity of being his Daughter and being Loved by Him. And that’s the way it will be till the end of time!”

Sister Cristina’s debut album will feature two original compositions and ten cover tracks. In addition to Madonna’s classic track, she’ll take on “Fix You” by Coldplay and the Cyndi Lauper tune “True Colors” to name a couple.

Like Madonna, Sister Cristina headed to Venice to film the video. Unlike Madge though, she keeps her habit on and doesn’t writhe sexually on a gondola. Check it out below. I have to say, I like her rendition quite a lot. Be sure to sound off afterward.

Just days after teasing their joint editorial, Madonna and Katy Perry’s spread in V Magazine is here in full. The dynamic duo pose for Steven Klein for the publication’s “Power of Pop” issue. It’s Bettie Paige meets S&M dominatrix dungeon.

Even though it’s clearly obvious the amount of Photoshop used to make Madge remotely look Katy’s age, I like the photo editorial. I’d love for these two to collaborate in the recording studio as well.

On The Physicality Of The Photoshoot

Katy Perry: I was sore in my upper body and in my butt area from all that squatting.
Madonna: It’s good to be sore in your butt. My neck is sore from that wonderful moment when I was sucking on your heel.
