Attention Walmart shoppers. Beyonce is in the HOUSE!!! In another brilliant publicity stunt, Beyonce visited one of the retailer’s stores in Tewksbury, Massachusetts to buy a physical copy of her self-titled hit album. December 20th marked the first day actual CDs were available to purchase.

In addition to buying her latest LP, she purchased toys for Blue Ivy and $50 gift card for everyone in the store. According to reports, Beyonce paid for 750 gift cards for her fellow Walmart shoppers — totaling $37,500. I wonder if Target is regretting their decision not to carry Beyonce. This is fantastic and free promotion for Walmart.

Bey’s unexpected Walmart visit came on the heels of her album release party at Dave & Busters in New York the previous night. Earlier that evening, the 32-year-old superstar performed her Mrs. Carter Show in Brooklyn. One of those in attendance was none other than Madonna and her daugther Mercy James. “Mrs. Carter crushes the BK with her bad a** show! Girls run the world!,” Madge posted on Instagram. She also shared an adorable pic of Bey kissing Madge’s daughter on her forehead. Check it out below.

Apparently, dancing is all the rage in fashion these days. Instead of models just doing their signature walks, girls are now being asked to shimmy, shake it and grind it on the runway. First Rick Owens showed off his entire collection at Paris Fashion Week using stepping teams, and now Jean Paul Gaultier is getting his groove on. The French designer is best known for creating Madonna’s iconic cone bra back in the 90s during her voguing days.

Speaking of vogue, JPG enlisted Karlie Kloss to show off her skills. While Scissor Sisters’ “Let’s Have A Kiki” played in the background, girlfriend busted out more angles than a protractor. Kloss was facilitating a master class in geometry, for real. Fierce doesn’t even begin to describe the unforgettable moment.

Also busting out in dance was Canadian supermodel Coca Rocha. The former professional Irish jigger (is that a word?) channeled her inner John Travolta for a Grease-inspired segment. From the pompadour to the iconic dance moves, Coco served major Danny Zuko realness. Watch both epic moments below, along with the entire Gaultier fashion show.

Madonna Finally Unveils Her #SecretProject

In: Donovan, Music

I never thought Madonna would ever unveil her #SecretProject. She’s been teasing this mysterious piece of work for months now. Some thought it might be a concert DVD. There was even speculation it had something to do with promoting her boyfriend’s clothing line. Turns out the film is a part of Art For Freedom, the launch of a global initiative to further freedom of expression. The project is in conjunction with VICE and BitTorrent who curated and distributing it respectively.

“My goal is to show by the example of secretprojectrevolution my creative commitment to inspire change in the world through artistic expression,” the Material Mom elaborated. “I hope my film and other submissions to Art for Freedom will be a call to action and give people a place to voice their own creative expression to help fight oppression, intolerance and complacency.” – Madonna

Madonna unveiled the black and white Steven Klein-directed visual guerrilla style, projecting the film on building walls in select cities including New York, Toronto, Berlin and Los Angeles. It’s everything you’d expect from Madge- gorgeously shot, provocative, full of shirtless men, and a tad pretentious. Check out the short film below.

Selena Gomez Banned From Entering Russia

In: Donovan, Music

In the wake of Madonna and Lady Gaga openly defying Russia’s anti-gay law on their soil, the government is making entry into the country more difficult for foreign performers according to the Moscow Times. Russian conservatives tried to file lawsuits against them in the spirit of the controversial law banning the promotion of “nontraditional sexual relationships” to minors that came into effect this summer.

The first one affected by the tougher restrictions is Selena Gomez. The powers that be obviously perceive her as pro-gay, which I assume is probably true. The “Slow Down” singer is forced to cancel two scheduled shows in St. Petersburg and Moscow on September 23 and 25 respectively due to her visa being declined. As someone’s who’s seen her Stars Dance World Tour, they’re missing out. At least from what I can remember ;)

Did Lady Gaga Plagiarize Madonna? (Again)

In: Donovan, Music

You knew it was coming? Within days of “Applause” surfacing online, plagiarism claims have once again befallen Lady Gaga. Not surprisingly, Madonna is involved.

While not completely blatant like “Born This Way” ripping off “Express Yourself,” fans of Madge allege Mother Monster’s latest sounds too similar to “Girl Gone Wild.” Personally, it’s a stretch, but I will say one thing. The two tracks make for one wicked mashup. Check out the audio below and weigh in afterward if you think Gaga has once again dipped in the Material Girls’ pool of hits.

Madonna’s Debut Album Celebrates 30th Anniversary

In: Donovan, Music

The title of “Princess of Pop” is a term thrown around loosely these days. But don’t get it twisted, there is only one queen and her name is Madonna. On July 27, 1983, Madonna’s self-titled debut album was released and the music industry has never been the same since.

Its first single, “Everybody” (a quintessential 80s party jam), was actually released the previous year, in late 1982. The song became a hit in dance clubs and prompted Sire to sign her for a record deal. While Madge’s sophomore album Like A Virgin is widely credited as her big breakout album, Madonna would lay foundation to an illustrious and controversial career with her debut effort. The 8-track record would also give more visibility to the dance music scene and spawned three Top 40 pop hits. The album would go on to sell five million copies domestically and over 10 million worldwide.

Given the momentous 30th anniversary, I found it only fitting to celebrate her debut album. Til this day, I adore “Borderline” and rank it as one of my favorite cuts from the 54-year-old singer. Take a trip down memory lane and rewatch all the album’s music videos below. But before you do, cast your vote on your favorite track from Madonna.
