More news on Will and Grace
Posted: 29 March 2003

From The Dish!
Madonna plays a low-level music-executive whose randy ways can't stop her from hitting on the same hunk that Megan Mullally's character Karen Walker also wants to 'de-flower' at a disco.
'Everybody dance y'all....' will blast as they go toe-to-toe on the dance floor, trying to outdo each other to win the poor sap's affections.
He so freaks out at the sight of these two writhing about like a couple of cats on heat that he flees the scene!

Madonna video ends with image of 'President' Bush with grenade in his lap
Posted: 29 March 2003

From The Drudge Report:
A final shock scene in the video of recording artist Madonna's upcoming release - is that of the singer throwing a grenade in the lap of President Bush!
'It is not me being anti-Bush, it's me being ironic and tongue in cheek,' Madonna explains to NBC's Access Hollywood this weekend.
'My kind of wish for peace and my desire to sort of turn a weapon of destruction, which is a grenade, into something that is completely innocuous.'
Madonna uses a Bush look-alike in the final scene of American Life. The 'president' picks up the lit grenade that Madonna throws - and lights his cigar with it!
The image is 'my wish to find an alternative to violence to war and destruction,' the singer says.

Q Magazine - Madonna Interview
Posted: 28 March 2003

The May 2003 issue of the UK music magazine Q features Madonna on the cover and a total of 8 pages inside featuring an interview by Paul Rees and photographs by Craig McDean.
The magazine also features a full-page advert for the single and album release of American Life.
Madonna talks frankly about her life at the moment, including her thoughts on living in London, 'I love my Mini Cooper, I was too scared to drive a big car in London, the roads are too narrow and I'm always afraid I'm going to hit people on both sides.'
The magazine also gives some hints of the new songs on her album, A gospel choir arrives out of nowhere to propel the dreamy ballad Nothing Fails to a rousing climax, the stripped down Nobody Knows Me erupts in a barrage of electronic effects.
A full-page is also dedicated to Madonna's single releases during her 20-year career, and a mini-review accompanies each song.

Will and Grace - On-Set Pictures
Posted: 27 March 2003

From Entertainment Tonight Online!:
When it comes to material girls, Will & Grace's Karen (Megan Mullally) tops the list -- that is until she meets the original. Brace yourself as Madonna gets into the groove as a guest star on an upcoming episode of NBC's Must-See TV sitcom.
In an episode that mostly likely will air this May, Karen meets Liz (Madonna), a peculiar yet high-maintenance office worker, and the two discover that they have a great deal in common, including their taste in the opposite sex. Karen has been through a lot since divorcing Stan, and while the two gals don't wind up being roommates (Karen's search for a roomie is how they meet), Liz does rock Karen's world in the 'Dolls & Dolls' episode.

Swept Away - Deleted Scenes
Posted: 25 March 2003

The 29 March-04 April issue of heat magazine, shows pictures of several deleted scenes which are featured in the forthcoming DVD release of Swept Away in the UK on 05 May 2003.

The scene that's changed most from the cinema release of Swept Away now features a fully nude Madge lying on the sand - but she has nothing to be embarrassed about as her yoga regime and macrobiotic diet has kept her body in great shape.

NME's American Strife
Posted: 20 March 2003

The 22 March 2003 issue of the UK music paper NME features a full-page article on Madonna's 20-year career, and gives a small review of her new single. To read the excellent article by Alex Needham, click on the image to enlarge. Here are some highlights:
....her new single, 'American Life' is a magnificently addictive confection of glitchy techno and creamy pop with a daft comedy rap on the end. Then there's the video, which starts as a fashion show and ends in hand grenade, dead baby-strewn carnage. At a time when anti-war sentiment, particularly in the US is unwelcome, 'American Life' shows that Madonna's balls are steelier than the rest.
....she doesn't have to put herself through the pop mill now, let alone antagonise half her own continent. She does it because she is, in the end, an artist. An artist who's brought the most avant garde ideas and influences into the mainstream since The Beatles and transformed the landscape of pop culture for good.

Madonna's stolen bicycle inspires Guy
Posted: 16 March 2003

The Sunday Express tells the story behind Guy's new TV show Swag:
The theft of Madonna's bicycle has inspired her husband Guy Ritchie to make a TV crime show set to make the couple millions. Madonna and Guy were furious when her £600 bike was stolen from outside their London home last summer.
But movie director Guy then hit on the idea of making a television show that tempts people to commit crimes and catches them red-handed on hidden cameras.
Now, even before the eight-part series called Swag has been screened in Britain, TV networks in America, France, Germany and Japan are so convinced it will be a ratings winner that they are preparing to buy the format from Guy's production company Ska Films.
A source at Channel Five, which will screen Swag from next Sunday, said: 'Guy was fizzing with anger when Madonna's bike was stolen. They didn't get it back, but suddenly he had this idea to turn the tables on petty thieves using television. Bizarrely, the bike theft is now going to make him and Madonna a lot of money.'

A League Of His Own
Posted: 07 March 2003

From IMDB.com:
Pop superstar Madonna is blaming her black eye on an accidental crack from son's baseball bat - laughing off reports she and husband Guy Ritchie were involved in a violent fracas.
The Material Girl claims her son Rocco was given the bat for his second birthday, and has developed a confident swing. A family friend says, 'His mom is keen to encourage his natural ability and she pitches up balls to Rocco in the yard every afternoon. Nine times out of 10 he hits them, but this time, he lost control of the bat and whacked Madonna in the eye.'

Madonna and Guy climbing up the money charts
Posted: 02 March 2003

Madonna and Guy have climbed the Daily Mail Rich Report (a look at the Top 300 British Millionaires) - last year the couple were at number 172 with earnings of £180m, this year they have climbed to 150th with joint earnings of £210m.
Here is what the Daily Mail have to say about the Dance music diva and her film director husband:
Like Pierce Brosnan in the latest Bond film, Madonna is planning to Die Another Day. She is putting the box office disaster Swept Away, directed by British husband Guy Ritchie, and her slated performance in the West End production Up For Grabs, firmly behind her.
With her title track for the Bond film giving Madonna her 44th Top 40 US hit, nobody can deny that the Queen of Pop still reigns. Her earnings for the year were £27m. And the year before she made £14m in a deal with Microsoft which used her rapid dance track Ray Of Light to launch it's Windows XP software.
With the proceeds from the 150m albums she has sold, Madonna is worth £200m. At 44, she is easily rich enough to spend £9m on a 1,200-acre shooting estate for Guy (and then change her mind about letting him shoot there).
But after three years in the UK, Madonna, now pregnant with her third child, has headed back to the sunnier climbs of LA.
However the mobve is only temporary and her agent is adamant she will return to her London home in a few months. With Guy, 34, she is worth £210m.

Wham Bam Van Damme rips into Madonna
Posted: 02 March 2003

Jean Claude Van Damme has ripped into the many celebrities that are taking an anti-war stance, he had this to say about Madonna in an interview with the National Enquirer:
He is particulary incensed with Madonna. The Material Girl's latest video spouts a atrong anti-war message, showing her dressed in military fatigues and throwing grenades in a landscape of bloody babies and limbless adults.
'To use George Bush and the Iraqi people as a publicity stunt is disgusting' he blasts.
'She should realise that in the Middle East they think of her as less than human - she'd be stoned to death there. So why is she defending them?'

He also rips into Martin Sheen, Sean Penn, George Clooney, Richard Gere for their anti-war stance, and critical views on George W. Bush.
