Madonna: I’d Be Invited to Meet Obama If I Were Married to Jay Z — The Complete 25 Things You Don’t Know About Madonna


Living for this! As teased last week, the Queen of Pop, 56, recently chatted with Us Weekly’s Entertainment Director for an extended interview about her legacy, her romantic past, her kids, her famous friends (including her crush, Drake !) and much, much more.

1. My all-time favorite Madonna song is “Bitch I’m Madonna” — naturally. And my least favorite is “Material Girl.” I never want to hear it again!

2. My favorite city is Rome. I’s so beautiful. The light is soothing and calming to me, and the architecture is splendid and the food is incredible. I totally love it.

3. I can’t stand mushrooms. Or escargot. Yuck! It’s like snot. Expensive snot.

4. The person I idolize most is Paul Farmer . He’s a doctor and activist who rebuilt the health-care system in Haiti even before the2010 earthquake. He’s done the same in Rwanda.

5. The last time I went grocery shopping was a year ago.

6. I miss absolutely nothing about growing up in Michigan. Nothing at all.

7. The person I most want to meet is President Obama. When the heck am I going to meet him? He just needs to invite me to the White House already. He probably thinks I’m too shocking to be there. I’m serious. If I was a little bit more demure…or if I was just married to Jay Z . Hey, if Jay would only take me as his second wife, then I’d score an invitation.

8. The one thing I’d never be caught dead wearing is a fur bikini.

9. My happiest moments were when my children [Lourdes, 18, Rocco, 14, David, 9, and Mercy, 9] were born and when I got married both times [to Sean Penn and Guy Ritchie ].

10. My favorite part of my body is my eyes. My least is my dancer’s feet. They are pretty disgusting.

11. I have found marriages don’t last if you share bathrooms. The best thing about being single is there’s no one to throw out of the bathroom when I want privacy.

12. The thing I miss least about marriage is being called “the wife.” The worst.

13. My most fattening indulgence is either pizza or french fries. Or potato chips, actually. Love them all.

14. The last time I was starstruck was when [French actor] Alain Delon called me while I was in Copenhagen during my last tour. I was trying to get him to do an onstage cameo during a small show in Paris. I was shaking because I love him so much! I never met the dude and only knew him from movies. He was my ridiculous teenage crush.

15. I don’t really watch TV. I only like two shows — True Detective and an Irish series called The Fall – and I’m not embarrassed about them. Many people say, “The Fall with Jamie Dornan ,” but I say, “The Fall with Gillian Anderson.” She’s so good.

16. The lifelong ambition I still want to fulfill is to go on a dream date with Drake — and only kiss him.

17. The most embarrassing moment of my life was falling off stage — let me rephrase that, being choked off the stage by two little Japanese girls — at the 2015 Brit Awards. Extremely embarrassing!

18. The most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen was my daughter [ Lourdes ] playing the ukulele and singing “La Vie en Rose” for me.

19. My secret beauty ritual is to put ice on my eyes every morning. Ice, ice baby.

20. Speaking of, if I were trapped on a desert island with either [ex-boyfriend] Vanilla Ice or Dennis Rodman, I would pick Dennis. He has a better sense of humor. Plus, he could always wear my clothes.

21. The quality I most loathe in people is making assumptions. Not doing research, investigating or asking questions and just assuming something. Oh, that drives me bonkers. I also can’t stand when I’m talking to someone and they’re texting. My kids will do it! It drives me up the wall. I always put my hand on their phones and ruin whatever they’re doing.

22. I can’t say what my worst date was, but there have been many. I’m a woman of the world, baby. One nonnegotiable attribute in a lover: He must not ever want to be away from me for more than two weeks at a time.

23. I have major claustrophobia. I don’t like being stuck in small, enclosed spaces or in crowds. They freak me out.

24. My ideal day off is spent lying in bed all day — sleeping for a few hours, then waking up and watching old movies, like my favorite, Breathless. I eat in bed, have my children come hang out with me, and then I fall back asleep. I never leave the bedroom.

25. My favorite memories of Michael Jackson were getting him to let down his guard. He was so shy. The time I succeeded most was after I got him drunk at the Ivy in Beverly Hills. I was driving my Mercedes and dared him to throw his sunglasses out the window. We couldn’t stop laughing.

On the show the character, played by Emilia Clarke , is known as the “Mother of Dragons” or the ”Queen of Dragons,” and is considered by many to be a feminist icon.

Miley Cyrus, Madonna Performing Together for Miley’s MTV Unplugged Special


Don’t stop bracing yourselves: Madonna’s epic collaborations continue. After joining Macklemore, Ryan Lewis and Mary Lambert (plus mass-wedding officiant Queen Latifah) onstage at Sunday’s Grammys, the pop legend, 55, will be performing with fellow provocateur Miley Cyrus for the younger star’s MTV Unplugged special , two sources confirm to Us Weekly . The stripped-down, acoustic concert tapes in L.A. on Tuesday, Jan. 28, and airs on MTV the following evening. ( E! News was first to break the story, noting that Madonna and Cyrus, 21, were rehearsing together on Monday.)
One source close to both divas tells Us that the planned duet came together “last minute” thanks to the efforts of MTV and their respective managers.
No word yet on what the women will sing together, but Madonna and Cyrus’ natural kinship isn’t difficult to figure out: The elder pop queen was pushing the envelope — with brazen, frank depictions of female sexuality and more — in her music, videos, live performances and attention-grabbing interviews before Cyrus was even born.

Madonna, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis to Perform “Same Love” Together at the 2014 Grammys


Let the fun begin! The Grammy Awards are well known for organizing surprise collaborations between huge artists in the music industry, and this year is no exception. Madonna and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis will be taking the stage together at the Staples Center in L.A. for the 2014 Grammys, sources confirm to Us Weekly .

Her appearance was officially confirmed Friday.) “Same Love” is an anthem for LGBT equality and same sex marriage.
This has been a hugely successful year for the old friends, who won for both Favorite Rap/Hip-Hip Artist and Favorite Rap/Hip-Hip Album at the 2013 American Music Awards last November. At the Grammys on Jan. 25, they are up for seven nominations — including Album of the Year for The Heist , Song of the Year for “Same Love,” and Best New Artist.

Madonna Apologizes For Using N-Word: “I Am Not A Racist”


Madonna is apologizing for using the N-word to caption an Instagram photo of her son Rocco on Friday.
As i previously reported, the singer posted a picture of Rocco boxing and wrote, “No one messes with Dirty Soap! Mama said knock you out! #disn*gga.” On Saturday, Madonna issued a statement saying, “I am sorry if I offended anyone with my use of the N-word on Instagram. It was not meant as a racial slur…I am not a racist.”
The “Material Girl” continued, “There’s no way to defend the use of the word. It was all about intention… It was used as a term of endearment toward my son who is white.”
“I appreciate that it’s a provocative word and I apologize if it gave people the wrong impression. Forgive me,” added the star.
Earlier this month, Madonna defended herself against an online backlash when she posted Instagram pictures of 13-year-old Rocco holding liquor bottles.

Madonna lashed out at critics after using a racial slur to describe her son


The pop star posted a photo of 13-year-old Rocco Ritchie boxing on Instagram Friday night, infuriating users with the caption: ‘No one messes with Dirty Soap! Mama said knock you out! #disn***a.”
Followers took aim at the singer for using the racially-charged term. But Madonna swiftly fought back, deleting the original image and re-posting it with a defiant message.
‘Ok let me start this again. #get off of my d**k haters!’ she wrote.
Within minutes, thousands of users had liked the image. But commenters were not as kind.
‘Spreading ignorance is awful!’ one user wrote.
Addressing others rushing to her defence, another said he was shocked by the star’s lack of understanding despite having adopted two young African-American children.
‘There are haters. Then there are people offended. Like myself being of the same race as Ur African son. Ur account is public. I know Ur smart enough to know that word originated as offensive. I’m disappointed. I loved u. But I have a line. I’m done (sic),” the user wrote.
Another accused the 55-year-old star of grasping at straws in her old age.
‘Madonna – you are trying wayyyy too hard these days to be down with the younger crowd. give it up granny!’ the commenter wrote.
Madonna has yet to issue comment on the controversy.

Madonna has a new young boyfriend according to reports


The 55-year-old superstar only broke up with backing dancer and boyfriend of three years Brahim Zaibat in early December.
But the singer reportedly introduced her new beau, 26-year-old Timor Steffens, at designer Rudolph Valentino’s private New Year’s Eve Party in Gstaad, Switzerland.
‘The chemistry between Madonna and Timor was pretty intense,’ one party guest told Radar Online.
Like 25-year-old Brahim, Timor is a backup dancer and according to the website the couple have been working on a dance project for several months.
But having reportedly debuted their relationship at the party, not everyone in the crowd of A-listers, which included Madonna’s arch-nemesis Elton John, was impressed.
‘Some people at the party were whispering about how Madonna had just broken up with her ex, and now she’s already with a new guy,’ the source added to Radar.
‘It’s that kind of crowd. Plus, you can’t really ignore the fact that Timor is SO much younger than Madonna. I mean, he’s basically a replacement for her ex. He looks just like Brahim.’ Not that the gossip bothered the mother-of-four.
Madonna, who has been married to actor Sean Penn and director Guy Ritchie in the past, supposedly partied with her new beau regardless.
‘Madonna didn’t give a f**k that people were whispering!’ the source recalled. ‘She was really showing him off, drinking and dancing with him all over the place.’
Madonna spent the Christmas holidays in Switzerland with her children Lordes, 17, Rocco, 13, Mercy James, eight, and David Banda, eight.
And according to the party source, it’s Timor’s relationship with her children that appeals to Madonna.
‘It was obvious he was already close to all her kids, especially Rocco,’ the insider said.
‘They spent a lot of the night on New Year’s joking around with each other.’

Madonna Slammed for Posting Photos of Kids With Alcohol, Tells Critics to “Get Sense of Humor” — SEE PICS HERE


Madonna is fighting back against critics who accused her of promoting underage drinking on Saturday.
The singer, who is vacationing with her family in the Swiss Alps, posted an Instagram photo of her 13-year-old son Rocco and his pals holding bottles of alcohol.
“The party has just begun! Bring it! 2014,” she captioned the shot.
Commenters quickly slammed Madge for the pic, but she hit back hours later.
“No one was drinking we were just having fun! Calm down and get a sense of humor!” wrote the music star.
She added, “Don’t start the year off with judgment!”
