Madonna’s been parading around in skimpy outfits, singing torchy anthems that have lit cities on fire for years. More like decades. Since the early 80′s. Before most people reading this were even born.
And it seems she doesn’t like the fact that Lady Gaga came along and stole her swag. The gloves came off a while back and gave us, the audience, another musical feud to feast on.
Madge was onstage in Atlantic City do her thing when she stopped and told the crowd that she wanted to dedicate her next song to Lady Gaga. She went on to sarcastically say that she loved Lady Gaga and that imitation was the greatest form of flattery.
We don’t know if this shot across the bow will start some epic battle of Little Monsters and Madonna minions snapping their fingers a la West Side Story. But if it does, we’ll be there.
Lady Gaga is on the mend! Speaking to fans outside her hotel in Brisbane in asked “How’s your head by the way?” to which she replied “Thank you for asking, It’s much better”.
The singer took a bang to the head during her concert when a backing dancer tried to move a metal bar and it dropped down hard on her head.
She staggered off stage in Brisbane for a short time, but returned announcing that even though she may have concussion she’ll finish the gig.
This isn’t the first time this has happened in the last few days.
Justin Bieber set the precedent recently, suffering a concussion after walking into a glass door while leaving the stage in Paris. He managed to pass out cold afterwards but is ok.
And if its true everything happens in three’s then perhaps Gaga wouldn’t mind if Madonna has a mishap after she played a mash-up of her song Express Yourself into Gaga’s similar sounding Born this Way, supposedly to taunt her rival.
Concussion or not, Gaga had her own dig back at her by ending her Born This Way performance singing, “she’s not me” at the end.
The Splash News picture of Madonna’s 15 year-old daughter Lourdes casually smoking in New York, caused a firestorm of publicity and has prompted the mum of four to speak up on parenting saying “Every day is a negotiation, but cigarette smoking, I’m not very fond of.”
Which is bizarre when in the role model to millions latest video “Girls Gone Bad”, she’s seen seductively holding a cigarette.
Good luck with those negotiations.
Speaking on the Today show she admitted, “I’m probably not as tough as I should be. I think I need to be maybe tougher”
Madonna looked at the problems of parenting philosophically stating “we all have our challenges” and “so far I’ve survived with sanity and humor intact”. And with her kids, she ask the typical mom questions like “Have you done your homework?” and “Why are you wearing that?”
But when you’re Madonna and so much of your career has been about shock value and breaking rules, could this be a case of “Mama don’t preach?”
The original queen of controversy, Madonna, has come under fire from one of the most popular DJs in the music scene, Deadmau5.
While performing at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami, Madge apparently tried to appear “hip” and show her ability to relate to today’s rave-scene culture by calling out a reference to drugs to the crowd.
Madonna asked the audience, quote, “how many people in this crowd have seen Molly?”
They cheered in response.
For those who don’t know, “molly” isn’t a missing friend of Madge’s, it’s a reference to MDMA, a chemical found in the drug ‘ecstasy’ which is notoriously popular with rave seen crowds.
DJ Deadmau5 heard this drug reference and slammed the 53 year-old singer on his facebook page for promoting the drug to young music lovers.
He wrote sarcastically, “Very classy there Madonna” and added, “F**king can’t smack my head hard enough right now.”
No response yet from Madonna on Deadmau5’s criticism, but we’ll keep you posted.
