The Movies, the Mafia and a Miami nightclub
Posted: 30 October 2002

From OK! magazine:
Madonna will soon be returning to cinema screens soon - only this time someone else will be playing her in the story of Liquid, the Miami nightclub.
The club was run by acquaintances of Madonna - Ingrid Casares and Chris Paciello - and that's where it gets embarassing. Paciello turned out to have had ties with the Mafia, and was implicated in the murder of a woman while he and his friends robbed her home.
He moved to Miami, reinvented himself and helped launch Liquid. Eventually he was discovered and, rather than go to prison, he volunteered to give evidence against the Mafia.
He's now sold to rights to his life story, as has Casares, and the script is being written. But just who will play Madonna?

Madonna causes a mini sensation in London
Posted: 20 October 2002

Madonna was snapped yesterday as she drove into London's West End in her new Mini Cooper S. After parking in Soho, Madonna stopped at a studio to record some new album tracks.
Madonna tried to disguise herself wearing a flat-cap over her eyes, but the logo on her designer jacket gave the game away. It clearly says 'Madonna' alongside 'Baby Phat' - the name of a New York fashion firm.

"I think he's married his mother"
Posted: 07 October 2002

Guy's mother, Amber Leighton gave an interview in The Mail on Sunday, she only briefly mentioned Madonna for fear of jeopardising the opportunities she gets to see her grandson Rocco ('a real sweetie') and his half-sister Lourdes.
As she spoke about her life she gave this explaination for why Guy may have fallen for Madonna.
My children - especially the boys - are quite uncomfortable with women. I look at Guy sometimes and think he's married his mother in some respects. I used to be as rude as Madonna can be, and that's what he knows: female iconoclastic behaviour. He wasn't going to marry some little mousy.

Tears before bedtime?
Posted: 04 October 2002

From www.peoplenews.com
Singing, dancing, acting, directing and now writing - is there no end to the talents of the Ritchie household? Guy Ritchie and his missus, the artist normally known as Madonna, have announced that the children's books they have co-penned will be in the shops in time for Christmas. Marvellous.
But why children's books? 'We thought we'd do better to start with young fresh minds that haven't been contaminated by all the terrible things that the media bestows upon them,' explained Ritchie.
Such a statement might raise the eyebrows of certain cynics, who may wonder exactly which parts of the media Madonna - famed for using sex to sell records - and Guy - whose biggest hit glamourised East End gangeterism - might be thinking of. Let's just hope there's no tears at bedtime.
