Picture By Adi Piper takes up modelling on Madonna's advice
Posted: 28 February 2005 - From the Sunday Mail

The hunky Scots piper handpicked by Madonna to perform on her world tour has been signed up as a model after she encouraged him to pursue a catwalk career.
Lawyer Lorne Cousin, 32, travelled the world with the pop icon on her sell-out Re-Invention tour last year. He returned to his old job as a conveyancing solicitor in Edinburgh last October after five months travelling the globe on private jets and staying in luxury hotels. But now the 6ft 1ins Scot is launching a career as a male model, on Madonna's advice, and has just been signed up by modelling agency Colours Model Management.
Lorne, from Campbelltown, said: 'It's not something I would have ever considered before. During the tour we were always doing different photo shoots for various magazines and Madonna suggested I should try modelling. When I came back to Scotland, I put together a portfolio of photos and was signed up by this agency. I've just started to do it and fit it in with my job in conveyancing. It's a hobby at the moment.'
Madonna invited Lorne on her tour after hearing him play at Stella McCartney's wedding on Bute in the summer of 2003. Earlier this month, Lorne was flown to Milan to play at the Pringle of Scotland fashion show, piping the models on stage.
He said yesterday: 'I'm still in touch with Madonna. I would consider her a friend, as I think she does me.'

Madonna's new TV project
Posted: 24 February 2005 - From contactmusic.com

Pop superstar Madonna has teamed up with British comedian Eddie Izzard (pictured left) to make a new TV drama.
The Material Girl will produce, and possibly appear, in the show - about an Irish conman (Izzard) who tricks the residents of Baton Rouge, in America's deep south.
The transvestite comic explains, 'It's very dark and sinister. It's a cracking script, but so far we're only on the pilot, so I don't know whether she's going to appear in it herself.'

Madonna shows us her collection
Posted: 23 February 2005 - From the Evening Standard

Madonna is to lend two of her most cherished works of art to Tate Modern for an exhibition, it was revealed today.
In June the Tate will hold the first ever British exhibition dedicated to Frida Kahlo.
The eccentrically moustached Mexican painter was the subject of an Oscarwinning film Frida in 2002, starring Salma Hayek.
The Tate Modern exhibition will star more than 70 of her 144 paintings - including Madonna's canvasses Self-Portrait with Monkey and My Birth.
Madonna's art curator, Darlene K Lutz, has said of the self-portrait: 'The Kahlo painting is so powerful and enigmatic that we hope people will get beyond its personal history, as Madonna has, and see the artistic genius....it is the number one love of her collection.'
Self-Portrait with Monkey is one of the most cherished pieces in Madonna's art collection and has pride of place in her London home.
The singer receives up to 10 requests a year to lend her works - which include paintings by Picasso, Léger, Salvador Dali and Man Ray.

The best UK TV pop debuts
Posted: 21 February 2005 - From the Evening Standard

They are the moments that reshaped pop history. From Madonna defining the sound and style of the Eighties with her first appearance on British TV to the Sex Pistols outraging the nation almost a decade before, they are debut television performances which launched the careers of some of music's biggest stars.
A poll today lists the top 10 most important music television debuts in history, the landmark moments when those who would go on to become legendary stars were first seen in action by audiences far bigger than those at their concerts.
The list was put together by a panel of experts to mark the launch of the ITN Archive, a new database of music footage from commercial TV channels.
Some performances may have seemed innocuous at the time, but went on to become much more meaningful.
When Madonna came to the UK to perform Holiday on The Tube, her record company almost refused to foot the bill for her trip, believing that the 25-year-old singer was destined to be a one-hit wonder.

Madonna is at number 4 in the list, behind The Sex Pistols, Nirvana and Oasis:
Madonna performing Holiday on The Tube, 27 January 1984. Before this, Madge was a dance music novelty. But by the end of the year she would be a pop colossus.

Christopher answers back
Posted: 21 February 2005 - Thanks to Mo

The Rush & Molloy's column in today's edition of the New York Daily News spoke to Madonna's brother, Christopher Ciccone about their alledged rift:

'Our relationship is in very good standing, we speak to each other all the time,' the jewel-eyed designer told us. 'You know that every large family has its ups and downs, and we are no exception.'
As for speculation that Madonna's devotion to kabbalah, a mystical branch of Judaism, fueled the now-healed split, Ciccone says it can't be: He's into it, too. 'I practice kabbalah,' he told them, 'in my own way.'

Dress You Up: The Immaculate Clothing Collection
Posted: 21 February 2005 - Thanks to MadonnaMegaCollection for the scan

The NY Times Style Magazine (Women's Fashion Spring 2005 issue) features a small piece on how Madonna's clothes and stage costumes are in the process of being catalogued for a possible future exhibition:

All that cabalah and yoga has taught Madonna to look deep within....her closet. So she hired Karine Prot to catalog every incarnation of her wardrobe, from tour and movie costumes to outfits from 20 years of public appearances.
Going through the Material Girl's material isn't as easy at it seems, even for someone like Prot, who assisted Hamish Bowles, of Vogue, on the Jacqueline Kennedy exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Not only does Prot have to clean and pack each item, but she also has to identify it. 'I do my own informal research,' Prot says. 'A lot of the Madonna-fan Web sites are really helpful.'
When stumped, she can turn to the expert. 'Madonna usually remembers everything about a piece.' The matriarch of pop agrees, saying, 'God gave me a steel-trap memory, which serves me well most of the time.'
While she has yet to locate the Jean Paul Gaultier cone bra from the Blond Ambition tour, Prot says her favorite find so far is the skirt Keith Haring designed for the 'Borderline' video in 1984. 'It was in perfect condition,' she says. With work about half complete, Prot estimates it will be another year and a half until she's finished her treasure hunt, which may eventually go on tour: Madonna is thinking about mounting an exhibition. Could MoMAdonna be far behind?

Madonna to play Candy Darling on film?
Posted: 18 February 2005

Pop superstar Madonna has signed up to play a prostitute in a new movie - and was so desperate for the role she waived all payment.
The Material Girl has finally secured the chance to play cross-dresser Candy Darling, after chasing the part for years, writes British newspaper The Sun.
Darling starred in a number of Andy Warhol films and provided Lou Reed with the inspiration to write Candy Says and Walk On The Wild Side.
An insider says, 'Madonna has been desperate to make a film where she can earn respect for her acting abilities. She is still trying to shake off the bad publicity from the movie Swept Away. She sees this as her big chance.
'She has wanted to play this part for so long because she feels so strongly about the character. She said she would do anything for the part and has agreed to work for free.'

Madonna to rock out on next album
Posted: 16 February 2005

Music website contactmusic.com reprise a story that was first featured in UK newspaper The Sun today:

Pop superstar Madonna is heading in a new direction on her next album, which will see her ditching dance-flavoured tracks in favour of a more rocking sound.
The Material Girl, who spends much of her time in England where she lives with her film-maker husband Guy Ritchie, has been listening to various British rock bands which have proved a huge influence on her almost-completed new record.
An insider says, 'Living in Britain she has become a real fan of Franz Ferdinand and loves the kitschy sound of The Darkness.
'She is moving more in that direction - real sounds, like a real band.'
'Madonna always keeps in touch with what is popular in the charts and has been really into the guitar-based rock bands of 2004.'
'The new album is taking shape as one of her best ever.'

madonnalicious visitor Jamie sent in this email regarding the Re-Invention tour DVD:

I have just come back from a week in Barcelona and whilst I was in the giant music store FNAC, I noticed that there was a huge sign advertising the Re-Invention Tour DVD with a release date of the 4th April 2005.
When I asked, the guy behind the counter showed me a list of all the pre releases and he told me that was definitely the date that is is due to be released! Fingers crossed ah?

Billboard.com were asked about a release date for the tour DVD and had this to say:

Guy speaks about Madonna in Revolver
Posted: 08 February 2005

The new edition of UK film magazine Empire features a small interview with Guy Ritchie about his forthcoming film Revolver which is produced by Luc Besson and is due for release in November.

Shot in secrecy over ten weeks on the Isle Of Man, the filmed had wrapped just two hours before the director phoned Empire to give us the lowdown. 'It was a long one to write,' he says. 'Snatch and Lock, Stock took three months, but this one took about a year and a half.' And? What's it about? 'Let's just say it's about a gambling man who realises he's in for more than he thought.'
Like Ritchie's previous films, the script changed constantly throughout the writing process and then, just for laughs, metamorphosed completely a week before filming. 'It's a funny thing, writing. Particulary a script like this. Don't ask me what sort of genre it is because I'm left scratching my head. It was an endless process of tweaks, then for some reason it all just solidified'
Not only does the film put Ritchie's surreal humour on a back-burner ('It's a lot more serious than my other movies'), there's also no truth in the rumours that Mrs Ritchie, aka Madonna, has a cameo.
'No, she's not in it,' he insists. So the stories are made up? 'Completely made up.' He laughs. 'That's rare, isn't it?'

Madonna takes up karate

Jennifer Lopez, who is due to launch her first catwalk show for her fashion brand Sweetface had this to say about her early fashion inspirations:
I was the girl who would take my dad's sweatshirt and cut it up, so it had all these straps. I remember being very young and looking at Madonna and thinking she was the coolest: her bracelets up to her elbow, her lace and gloves and tights. Seeing how music is so correlated to fashion, or even how movies are so correlated to fashion, it's something so natural to me.
