An eBay seller is claiming to have a boatload of Madonna?s personal items, including journals from 1988 to 1992, an address book with famous contacts like Antonio Banderas, Dennis Hopper, Lenny Kravitz, Matt Damon, John Malkovich, Oliver Stone and Al Pacino, as well as personal family pictures. The set, which is now being sold on eBay, is said to have belonged to the Queen of Pop?s personal assistant Melissa Crowe, who worked for the singer from 1987 to 1996. There?s no word yet on how the seller obtained the items but Melissa has told a fan site that she wants the items back and tells fans to not bid on the items. I can only imagine how juicy those journals are.
Kiely Williams, formerly of 3LW and the Cheetah Girls, released a rather offensive song and video this week called ?Spectacular?. It?s some desperate attempt to get some recognition in the music industry that ended up being a total failure because while people did get talking about her, they don?t have nice things to say. The singer posted a lengthy note in the description for the music video on her official YouTube page saying ?I am playing a character in the music video for the song Spectacular, as I did in the Cheetah Girl movies. Young women across the country get intoxicated and have unprotected sex. That’s a fact. I recorded the song to bring attention to this frighteningly prevalent activity. It is absurd to infer or suggest that I am condoning this behavior.? She goes as far as comparing herself to Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Rihanna, Madonna and Monique. She wishes.

Madonna has returned to Malawi to oversee the first steps toward the construction of her Raising Malawi Academy for Girls. The Queen of Pop will even have the esteemed honor or laying down the first brick on the school. The singer also spent some time at the Millennium Village, a United Nations initiative in the central border district west of Lilongwe. I wonder if she brought David and Mercy along for the trip to meet with their families. Let?s hope that the school is all that she gets herself into and not another adoption. I?m all for her helping others but let the other kids grow up a little first, yeah?
Up and coming singer Jason Derulo, who just finished a stint on tour with Lady Gaga, is on his way into the studio to work with none other than the Queen of Pop herself, Madonna! The R&B singer said ?Lady Gaga’s as awesome offstage as she is on stage. She actually said something which was really, really cool. She looked me in my eyes and said, ?Jason, I’ve worked with a lot of talented people, I’ve seen a lot of talented people, but you’re special. You’re star.? That meant a lot coming from her. I’m about to work with Madonna, and I?ve been watching her for years. I would love to be a part of another reinvention. She?s been able to reinvent herself time and time again. I?ll probably be part of that.? I can?t wait to hear what they come up with.
Lady Gaga recently spoke to UK?s OK magazine about the comparisons between her and the Queen of Pop Madonna. The record-breaking singer said ?It’s funny when people say they see a lot of Madonna in me. I just feel so flattered because I love her and I am just her biggest fan. She is very strong. I love the way she does interviews -you know you won’t get anything past her.? I actually think that Lady Gaga is this generation?s Madonna. She?s going to be the one that everyone still knows of and still has a career going at the age of 50. Heck, she may even reach Cher status!
Feb 5, 2010 Madonna
Madonna was spotted making out with rumoured ex Jesus Luz – before burying the hatchet with ex-husband Guy Ritchie at the same party, according to U.S. reports.
In what would have been a dizzying night for Madonna watchers, the Material Girl was said to have spent time with the two most important men in her recent life at the after-party for the London premiere for A Single Man on Monday night.
An insider insists Madge made out with Jesus – then made up with Guy, spending time chatting with her ex-husband to the amazement of onlookers.
The insiders said that her actions made it very clear she was still with Jesus – at least on Monday.
“They were all over each other and were even kissing in front of everyone,” said an insider who snuck into the afterparty in Harry’s Bar. They looked like they were still very much an item.”
The onlooker said Jesus left right before the party ended, but Madonna stayed until the venue closed.
“Tom Ford was there, and she looked like she wanted to talk to him before she left for the evening,” the source says.
“But there’s no doubt she and Jesus were at the party together.”
Madonna is reportedly back in the studio hard at work for the follow up to 2008?s ?Hard Candy?. For the yet to be titled album, the Queen of Pop is bringing in a long list of collaborators including French DJ David Guetta, Fernando Garibay and Kanye West?s DJ A-Trak. The latter of the DJ?s talked about the collaboration saying ?It’s my production, turned into song structure – halfway between rap and electronic and whatever else I listen to.? And with Pearl Jam?s producer Brendan O?Brien on board with the singer as well, it leads me to believe that there?s going to be some rock infused music as well.
Lady Gaga is featured on the January 2010 cover of 944 magazine. The 23-year old pop singer impressed the magazine?s editor-in-chief Martine Bury so much that they could only pick her for the cover of their Vanguard issue. Martine said ?Lady Gaga has liberated music and fashion the way David Bowie and other Brit Glam rockers did in the seventies – using costume, artifice and drama while bending gender norms and conventions. But she also one ups everyone with her phenomenal vocal talent and truly unique aesthetic. She?s way ahead of her time and the only universal artist to truly break ground and provoke thought since Madonna.?
Madonna has been linked to shamed Tiger Woods – through their doctor.
Madge and golf superstar Woods were both patients of Canadian sports-medicine specialist Dr. Tony Galea, according to reports.
Dr. Galea was arrested in October after an associate was arrested at the US border with a bag containing human growth hormone.
HGH is banned in most sports leagues.
Dr. Galea was reportedly treated by Galea after a horse-riding accident in the Hamptons last year.
Woods was reportedly treated by Galea following his knee surgery, also last year.
“Information regarding Madonna’s doctors has never been available to me, but I knew that sooner or later, the names Madonna and Tiger would be in a sentence, and I’m delighted that it’s sooner,” said Madonna’s publicist Liz Rosenberg.

It looks like the superstar?s profession is finally catching up with her. One of Madonna?s neighbours from New York is suing her because of frequent loud music and dance sessions. It seems that all of Madonna?s neighbours are bothered by the fact that she?s using her appartment as a rehearsals studio and she has previously been threatened with eviction. Madonna has probably already thought of a sollution for this one. She?s most likely going to bring her boyfriend by much more often? but of course, that?s no guarantee that the decibel level will get any lower than it is now.
