Generating headlines due to a surprise kiss is old hat for Madonna. Who could forget her infamous kiss with Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera at the 2003 MTV VMAs? Her latest victim was none other than Drake.
The 56-year-old diva planted a huge sloppy kiss on the Canadian rapper during his Coachella set. After the make out, she yelled, “I’m Madonna Bitch,” as she walked off stage.
I don’t blame her for seizing the opportunity to lock lips with Drake. He is pretty fiiiiine. Plus, I’m sure this is the secret to Madonna staying youthful. Sucking the life out of younger recording artists ;)
The whole thing went down during a surprise performance of “Human Nature.” Drake reportedly didn’t expect it. He expected the “Living For Love” singer to only walk around him while he sat on a chair.
As headline-worthy the kiss is, it’s Drake’s reaction that has social media buzzing. It appears he was disgusted, but sources tell TMZ say that’s not the case. He liked the kiss, but just not the aftertaste of the Material Girl’s lipstick. Ummm, okay. Who believes that? Check out the clip below and decide for yourself.
From Rebel Heart tracks leaking months in advance of the album’s official release date to Madge using Instagram, Snapchat and Grindr to premiere new content, social media has definitely defined Madonna’s latest era. This time around, the innovator that she is, the 56-year-old icon picked video broadcast app Meerkat to debut her latest music video.
A post apocalyptic world is the backstage for “Ghosttown.” While exploring the devastated city, Madonna bumps into Empire’s Terrence Howard who’s been hunting her down. It appears they’re about to battle but instead they dance seductively with each other. The clip ends with them walking hand in hand with a boy in between them.
It’s a bit random but the video is beautifully shot. Madonna looks pretty fantastic in it. Check out the clip below and weigh in afterward.
When it comes to Cosmopolitan celebrating anniversaries, Madonna is no stranger. The publication previously tapped the 56-year-old icon for its silver anniversary back in 1990. 25 years later, the Material Girl has once again received the call to be the glossy’s cover girl.
Madonna sits down with the publication to celebrate 50 years of power, provocation, and living that Cosmo-girl life. She posed for four collectible covers and an eye-catching editorial snapped by famed photographer Ellen von Unwerth.
For the accompanying interview, Madge chats about her career longevity, ageism, Internet haters and more. Check out a few quotes below along with more photos.
“Popularity comes and goes. You need to know who you are, what you stand for, and why you’re here.”
The second annual iHeartRadio Music Awards took place over the weekend at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. The event honors the best artists and biggest songs from the past year in several categories.
Taking home the big prize was Taylor Swift. She beat out the likes of Luke Bryan, Iggy Azalea, Ariana Grande and Sam Smith for “Artist of the Year.” The 25-year-old entertainer also snagged “Song of the Year” and “Best Lyrics” for “Shake It Off” and “Blank Space” respectively.
In addition to the expected categories, there were a few interesting out-of-the-box ones as well including “Best Fan Army” and “Renegade” awards. Justin Timberlake was bestowed the iHeartRadio “Innovator Award,” following in Pharrell’s footsteps who was last year’s inaugural winner.
Among those to hit the stage were Kelly Clarkson, Nick Jonas, Jason Derulo, Meghan Trainor, Rihanna and Sam Smith to name a few. Taylor Swift surprised the audience when she joined Madonna for “Ghosttown.” Check out the performances below.
It’s Madonna Week on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The 56-year-old pop icon is on hand all week long to promote her new album, Rebel Heart, in stores now.
On today’s appearance, the “Living For Love” singer plays Never Have I Ever with newly-roasted Justin Bieber. For the most part, the questions are pretty PG and tame. The most salacious thing they admitted to is hooking up with siblings. Who hasn’t ;)
What I would give to play an actual game with these two with a few drinks consumed, naturally of course. The tea that would be spilled would be epic. Watch Ellen play with Madge and The Biebs below.
A little whiplash after her epic fall at the 2015 Brit Awards isn’t going to slow Madonna down. The 56-year-old pop icon announced a tour to support her 13th studio album. Fingers crossed she doesn’t tie that Giorgio Armani bull fighter cape next time around.
The Rebel Heart Tour kicks off on August 29 in Miami. The 35-city engagement will span cities in North America and Europe. Additional tour dates for Asia and Australia are expected to be announced soon. Pre-sale begins tomorrow with general tickets available on Monday March 9. Check out all the tour dates below.
Madonna has the distinction of gracing more Rolling Stone covers than any other female. With so many under her belt, some repetition was bound to happen.
For her latest cover, the 56-year-old poses for a close up rocking a sexy red lip. The visual is very reminiscent of her Marilyn Monroe-inspired cover in the 90s. Hey, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right?
Inside the issue, Madge gets fiery and introspective. One of the topics she discusses is ageism in pop culture. Recently, the “Living For Love” singer felt the sting of that when a radio station in the UK banned her for being ‘irrelevant and old‘ for its teenage listeners. OUCH!!!
Madonna also reveals her real feelings about Lady Gaga, her marriage to Guy Ritchie, her relationship with Judaism, her assessment of Kanye West, calling him a ‘brilliant madman‘ and Taylor Swift. Check out some quotes below.
“She has an opinion, and she’s going against the norm. So in that respect, she is similar to me, yeah. And also, people just want to give her a hard time all the time because they think she’s a goody-two-shoes, so of course I want to embrace her.”
Who knew her lyrics for “Living For Love” would be so prophetic? Madonna may stumble, but she’ll still carry on. Not even an epic fall due to a wardrobe malfunction could stop Madge at the 2015 Brit Awards.
“Armani hooked me up! My beautiful cape was tied too tight! But nothing can stop me and love really lifted me up! Thanks for your good wishes! I’m fine! ??#livingforlove” Madonna wrote on her Instagram.
After falling backwards some five steps, the 56-year-old entertainer got back up and danced like nothing had happened. Given the magnitude of the stumble, I’m impressed she only missed a few notes and didn’t break her hip. That looked like it hurt hardcore. I’m sure though she’ll be sore and bruised tomorrow. Check out the fall below.
