I was starstruck by ‘hot’ Barack Obama – Madonna

Madonna recalled being ‘starstruck’ by ‘hot’ President Barack Obama on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Thursday and also proposed to the host.

Madonna met Obama in June 2016 backstage at 30 Rockefeller Plaza while both were taping appearances for The Tonight Show.

Oh, my god. That is probably the most nervous I’ve ever been in my life. I had butterflies in my stomach. I was completely and utterly starstruck. I was gagging

Madonna said.

I’ll never forget. You said to him, ”You’re the only reason I’m doing this show”. I can hear you, I can hear you. I was right there

Jimmy said.

‘The truth hurts,’ Madonna said before telling Jimmy that there were no ‘illusions’ this time and she was only there to see him.

Madonna earlier beat Jimmy in a Neon Dance Challenge in which they wore suits lined with neon lights while dancing.

She asked house band The Roots afterwards if they were ‘mad’ at her or disapproved of her dance moves.

‘You seem grumpy,’ she teased them.

She then poked fun at Jimmy about his dancing and called it ‘physical comedy’.

‘A good comedian has to be able to dance,’ she said when Jimmy took exception.

‘You do need a new hairstylist, but that’s another story,’ she quipped.

The Michigan native was promoting her fourteenth studio album Madame X that Jimmy noted was number one in 60 countries on the iTunes Charts.

‘I’m shocked and grateful and it never gets old. It’s like the first time every time,’ Madonna said.

Jimmy praised the singer for her ‘brain’ saying that she’s ‘smarter than the average bear’ and then stumbled while trying to say that it’s hard to guess her next step.

She may be the Queen of Pop.

But Madonna joked about having no friends as she shared a topless photo of herself clutching a Louis Vuitton handbag to her bare chest.

The 59-year-old, who rocked a very plump pout, shared the image to her Instagram account on Thursday.

The Like a Virgin singer drew thick black lines over her chest to comply with the photo sharing site’s community guidelines.

The mother of six also wore a grill as she pulled her golden locks back into a tight ponytail.

‘Still drooling over a handbag,’ the blonde wrote and then added hashtags, ‘@louisvuitton #nofriends #lisbonisfar #werktodo #whatwedoforlove’.

Singer Madonna’s 16-Year-Old Son Rocco Ritchie Was Arrested For Possession Of Cannabis

It looks like Rocco Ritchie ran into some trouble recently, but managed to keep it under wraps for nearly two months.

E! News confirms that Madonna’s 16-year-old son was arrested in September for possession of weed following a stop and search by officers from Camden borough.

Ritchie apparently was taken to a north London police station and was subsequently bailed and dealt with by Camden borough’s Youth Offending Team.

Authorities add that Ritchie was dealt with by way of Triage, which uses multiple strands to engage and educate young people in order to prevent re-offending.

Ritchie, who currently lives with father Guy Ritchie, was reportedly called on by the neighbors who were bothered by what they believed was drug use in their upscale neighborhood, according to TMZ.

The report continues to state that after coming across Rocco and a friend sitting on the wall and tossing something into the air, they found a small quantity of weed in his backpack and traces on his clothing.

rocco-madonna

Unfortunately, Rocco has been in the middle of a very public and ugly custody battle between his famous parents.

The battle ignited in December when Rocco refused to return to the United States after living with his director father in London.

While a New York Supreme Court judge ruled at the time that the teenager should return home to his mom, Ritchie’s lawyer chimed in to say that Rocco didn’t want to come back. The judge then suggested that the teen take up his concerns with his mom.

Little progress seems to have been made, and tension between the mother and son have been palpable in the months over the custody battle, however Madge continues to make subtle pleas to her son on her own account with nostalgic shots of him in all phases of his life.

She’s Not Happy! Madonna’s Ex, Guy Ritchie Wins Bitter Custody Battle For Their Son Rocco, 16

She may have just lost the custody battle for her son Rocco.

But in truly defiant style Madonna took to social media on Wednesday as she hit back, writing that sometimes a mother ‘need to be a b****’.

Sharing a series of pictures hours after it was revealed Rocco would live with his father Guy Ritchie in London, the singer, 58, appeared to take a swipe at the decision and her detractors.

Madonna

In the pictures (shot by Mert Alas) shared on social media, the Vogue singer can be seen in a black hoodie with a crown drawn atop her head above the words ‘Queen’ and ‘B****’.

Posting the photos to both Instagram and Twitter, she seemed to take a thinly veiled swipe at the days events.

Next to the one reading ‘B****’, she quipped: ‘Because sometimes soccer Mom’s need to be a… The caption attached to the ‘Queen’ image read: ‘And be treated like a…’

Madonna

Her posts came just hours after it was revealed Guy, 47, had won the bitter nine month custody battle he has been entrenched in with Madonna over where their son should live.

The Sherlock Holmes director reached a settlement with the pop star hours before they were due in court in New York on Wednesday.

Speaking outside the court Guy’s lawyer, Peter Bronstein, said that the 16-year-old-year-old would continue to live with his father in London.

MADONNA-SON-4

According to Page Six, Bronstein said: ‘The case is settled and everyone agrees that Rocco’s needs changed and he’s going to be living with dad. ‘Everyone’s agreed to that and there’s no further need for any kind of a court case.’

Court spokesman Lucian Chalfen confirmed Madonna and Guy had reached a settlement, which was filed on Tuesday.

RICHIE-SON

The website claims that Madonna thought Guy ‘had poisoned her son against her’ and, ‘as the disciplinarian [parent], she felt guy was way too permissive’.

The terms of their agreement remain confidential, but it is understood that Rocco will be schooled in London, with regular visits from his mother.

Madonna And Guy Ritchie

The parents entered into a legal battle at the end of 2015, when the teenager ignored a court order to fly back from Ritchie’s London home to live with her in New York.

Madonna and Guy – who remarried in 2015 has three of children under five with Jacqui – divorced in 2008 after eight years of marriage.

Though Madonna has a daughter, Lourdes Leon with ex Carlos Leon, and two adoptive children, David and Mercy; Rocco was their only child.

Madonna Children

During the most recent dispute, Madonna reportedly hired private detectives to spy on Rocco, while Ritchie launched a parallel legal action in London’s High Court.

The row began when Rocco left his mother’s Rebel Heart world tour when she reportedly confiscated his mobile phone, and he subsequently refused to return home with her to the States.

Rocco spent Christmas in London with his father, who is the director of films including Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels, and has largely been living with him ever since.

Meet the strict celebrity mums

Just because these women are rich and famous it doesn’t mean that their children get what they want when they want.

This is not because their  parents are unable to give them, but its because they are being taught the value of money and hardwork.

These parents have it all but believe that the same way they work hard is the same way their kids have to work hard.

Jennifer Lopez
According to Jennifer, her daughter and son have to earn their weekend fun by ‘behaving’ through the week. And only if they do, does she allow them to use iPads, sleep in with her, have late breakfast and watch TV on Sunday. And JLo rightly calls it the Sunday Funday.

Kate Winslet
Kate Winslet has no qualms accepting that she is a ‘strict mom’ as she makes sure her children are off to bed at 7:30 pm for a good night’s sleep. Other fun stuff like jumping on the bed is also strictly prohibited, while, following a strict daily routine is strictly asked for.

Victoria Beckham
Victoria and David Beckham might be the richest parents in the world, but their kids, sure have to make their way up on their own. Their eldest son Brooklyn had to take up a job as a barristo to earn his pocket money. There is a ‘Punishment Chair’ for those who behave badly as well.

Madonna
Madonna, mother of four, surely comes across as the strictest mommy as she has laid down a number of rules for her kids. While there is a strict no to watching TV, having ice-cream, milk, mobiles and reading magazines, the kids are supposed to do their daily chores by themselves.

Madonna reveals she dated Tupac Shakur before his tragic death

After making candid comments about her marriage to Guy Ritchie and relationship with Kanye West, Madonna gave another glimpse into her life and career in her first-ever interview with Howard Stern on Wednesday.

After two decades of speculation, Madonna has finally confirmed that she dated Tupac Shakur before his untimely death. The 56-year-old singer has revealed she enjoyed a short-lived relationship with the late Ghetto Gospel rapper in 1994 – two years before he was shot and killed – who she claims got her ”all riled up” and ”feeling very gangsta”.

Referring to a specific interview she did with chat show host David Letterman, she told SiriusXM’s Howard Stern: ”I was mad at [David] when I said the F-word a lot. I was in a weird mood that day. I was dating Tupac Shakur at the time and the thing is he got me all riled up about life in general. ”So when I went on the show I was feeling very gangsta.”

Speculation about a supposed relationship between the pair has been rife for years, although Madonna had not previously confirmed they dated. Meanwhile, Madonna, who is currently single but counts directors Sean Penn and Guy Ritchie as her ex-husbands, recently revealed she would ”never say never” to getting married again, admitting she doesn’t like to set boundaries for herself.

Madonna speaks on her attraction to younger men

Madonna thinks younger men are more ‘adventurous’. In a latest interview with NewYork Daily,  Madonna confesses to dating younger men although she is not exclusivey drawn to them. She once dated her dancer Brahim Zaibat who was 28 years her junior.

She said, ”It’s just what happens. Most men my age are married with children. They’re not datable. I’m a very adventurous person and I also have a crazy life.

”I’m a single mother. I have four children. I mean, you have to be pretty open-minded and adventurous to want to step into my world. People who are older, and more set in their ways, are probably not as adventurous as someone younger.”

The 56-year old singer was previously married to Guy Ritchie, 46 and Sean Penn, 54. She also admitted she would wed a third time if she found the right man.

Kim Kardashian’s blonde hair inspired by musician Madonna

Madonna is inspiration to Kim Kardashian West’s new hair colour. Kim revealed that she had been wanting to dye her hair platinum blonde for a long time after being inspired by the ‘Material girl’ hitmaker.

“I’ve always had this image of Madonna with platinum hair in my references folder on my computer and I’ve been waiting a long time to try the look. I thought what better time than right now for Paris Fashion Week. It was a really last minute decision,” she told PEOPLE magazine.

The 34-year old Keeping Up With The Kardashians rocked the look at the Paris fashion week while attending the Balmain fashion show alongside husband Kanye West.

Madonna Falls Hard, Drops Mic During Brit Awards Performance (Video)

Madonna returned to the Brit Awards for the first time in 20 years to perform her Rebel Heart single “Living for Love.” But it wasn’t an entirely seamless return to her one-time adopted home country.

At the beginning of her performance, she fell down a staircase when the lengthy cape she was wearing was tugged by a backup dancer/minotaur; it appeared that the cape was supposed to be easily removed but pulled Madonna along with it instead. Madge was yanked backward hard and fell down the stairs. (Yes, she fell during a song that features the line “watched me stumble”.)

Madonna dropped her mic and missed singing several of the song’s lyrics entirely. When she picked the mic back up, her voice still seemed shaky, like the fall had knocked the wind out of her. On the plus side: those who accuse her of lip-syncing (Elton John) can sod off. Check the video below

Madonna sparks outrage with Mandela, Martin Luther King Jnr ‘Rebelheart’ images

Madonna has sparked outrage after posting several doctored images in which civil rights icons are made to look like the 56-year-old singer, as she features on the cover of her new album ‘Rebel Heart’. Madonna has been criticised for defacing images of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Nelson Mandela.

The 56-year-old singer has posted several doctored images of civil rights icons to mimic the cover of her recently released mini-album, ‘Rebel Heart’, with other famous faces who have featured in the trend including Jesus and Bob Marley, alongside current musicians Miley Cyrus and Skrillex.

The ‘Unapologetic Bitch’ hitmaker – who rush-released tracks from her thirteenth studio album in December after they leaked online – attempted to clarify her reasoning for posting the images, assuring the public she is simply ”admiring” the stars by including them in the series of photos.

Writing on her official Facebook page, she said: ”I’m sorry. I’m not comparing my self to anyone. I’m admiring and acknowledging there Rebel Hearts.

“This is neither a crime or an insult or racist! I also did it with Michael Jaclson and Frida Khalo and Marilyn Monroe. Am I saying I am them?

“NO. I’m saying they are Rebel Hearts too. And, I didn’t do it. My fans did. And I just re posted those photos. My fans aren’t racist either.”

 

 

Furious at leaks, Madonna releases songs early

Madonna on Saturday suddenly released six new songs months ahead of schedule, furious that early versions had leaked online in what she had described as “artistic rape.”

The songs will appear on the pop icon’s first album in three years, “Rebel Heart,” which comes out in March. The six tracks show Madonna going further in a hip-hop direction and include a collaboration with leading female rapper Nicki Minaj.

The Material Girl said she decided to put the songs on sale online after in-studio versions of her tracks dripped onto the Internet.

“I would prefer my fans to hear completed versions of some of the songs instead of the incomplete tracks that are circulating. Please consider these six songs as an early Christmas gift,” Madonna said in a statement.

 

People take drugs to feel closer to God: Madonna

Madonna has revealed she thinks people take drugs to get closer to God and admitted that she herself tried most narcotics but didn’t enjoy their side effects.The 56-year-old star believes people take drugs in a bid to feel closer to God and claims she’s tried them all at one stage or another during her life.

She said: ”It’s about how people take drugs to connect to God or a higher level of consciousness. I keep saying, ‘Plugging into the matrix’. If you get high, you can do that, which is why a lot of people drop acid or do drugs, because they want to get closer to God.

”But there’s going to be a short circuit, and that’s the illusion of drugs, because they give you the illusion of getting closer to God, but ultimately they kill you.”

The Like A Virgin singer confessed, however, that she didn’t enjoy the effects of most narcotics and instantly regretted her actions once they entered her blood stream.

Nun sings Madonna’s ‘Like a Virgin’ for debut album

A singing nun who won the Italian version of the The Voice has released a cover of Madonna’s Like a Virgin for her debut single.

Sister Cristina Scuccia, who won the singing contest in June, says she chose the song herself “without any intention to provoke or shock”, but says she is ready for any criticism.

“It’s a song about the ability of love to make people new, to redeem them from their past. And that’s how I wanted to interpret it,” she tells the Catholic newspaper Avvenire.

Far from copying the original upbeat pop song, the 26-year-old Sicilian has turned the track into a ballad.

And where Madonna’s video saw her writhing around in a Venetian gondola while apparently being pursued by a lion (See video below) the Italian’s effort is a more sedate affair.

Sister Cristina says she doesn’t think Madonna has heard this new take on her song. “But I’d love to see her face when she does, and when they tell her it’s a nun singing.”
