Posted: 29 January 2003

Today's Daily Mail newspaper, reporter David Thomas gleefully tells the world why he is glad to see Madonna leaving Britain.

More Leaving London news....
Posted: 28 January 2003

Now her father-in-law is spilling the beans....from Hello!:
Madonna's love affair with everything English seems to be coming to an end. Two years after hubby Guy Ritchie persuaded her to move to London, the Material Girl has decided she's tired of the city's overcast skies and it's time to head back to sunny California.
'I think Madonna is very happy to be out of London because the harsh winter weather was getting her down,' explains her father-in-law John Ritchie. 'They have a pool at their home in Los Angeles and there are beaches nearby. I think the climate suits her much better.'
'Guy does miss London and obviously he misses his family and friends,' says John. 'But Lourdes, Rocco and Madonna are all much happier with the weather in Los Angeles.'
The sudden decision Guy's dad says the family 'packed everything up two days before Christmas and just left' was foreshadowed by the Music singer's recent comments as she looked over the LA skyline. 'Why are we stuck living in a ****hole like London,' she reportedly said, 'when we could be living here?'

Madonna leaving London? - Liz answers back
Posted: 22 January 2003

Madonna's rep Liz Rosenberg has set the record straight on from rumours that surfaced last week that Madonna had removed Lourdes out of her London school because The Ritchies were leaving London and moving back to Los Angeles.

Madonna's rep, Liz Rosenberg, says the reports are greatly exaggerated. 'The family is in L.A. now and Lourdes is going to school there,' she says, 'but they're returning to London sometime in the spring and she'll be back at school in London then.'

From the NY Post - thanks to Jessica.

Q Magazine - 100 Songs That Changed The World
Posted: 18 January 2003

A special-edition of the UK music magazine, Q features the 100 Songs That Changed The World and Madonna's Like A Virgin is at number 30.
The case for Like a Virgin being one of the songs that changed the world is that it Created the video age's first female superstar.

Here is an extract from the article by Andy Cowan:
Like a Virgin was a calculated masterstroke. Allying lyrics loaded with suggestion and innuendo to producer Nile Rodger's gossamer grooves and a timeless bassline was powerful enough, but doubly potent when combined with a video of Madonna alternately writhing on a gondola and being stalked by a lion while in full bridal garb. The video age had spawned it's first female superstar.
A US chart-topper for six weeks and an enduring karaoke classic, it confirmed Madonna's iconic status, still intact many changes of image and musical direction later. Beat that Kylie.

Site Information: What happened to Madonnalicious
Posted: 12 January 2003

Sorry to anyone who tried to access Madonnalicous over the past 10 days and found it had disappeared - my webhosts deleted and disabled Madonnalicious due to the fact this site was monopolising their resources.
It seems the relaunch was just too popular and the site's bandwidth usage was extreme.
In order for me to have Madonnalicious online again, I have had to move to a new webhost.

A big thank-you to everyone who emailed me with their support over this issue (especially everyone on the mailing list).

Posted: 06 January 2003

UK magazine heat (04-10 January 2003 issue) asked bookmakers Blue Square what the odds were for Madonna to win an Oscar this year.

Blue Square gave odds of 500/1 - so unless you are really sure she is going to win for Swept Away, I wouldn't bother putting any money on her!
