Madonna & Me: Women Writers on the Queen of Pop
Edited by Laura Barcella
If the way the Interwebz blew up the minute she hit the stage at the 2012 Super Bowl is any indication, Madonna has not lost her ability to provoke and fascinate—even as she approaches the end of her third decade as a pop icon. This fact is on abundant display in the new anthology Madonna and Me, edited by journalist (and BUST ... Read More

Madge is back with another video, and aside from the obvious "damn she looks GOOD!" comment I could make, I'll point out that the video for "Girl Gone Wild" is definitely a step up from the fun-but-kinda-weird "Give Me All Your Luvin'." For me, the oddness of the latter video could be attributed to the grating misspelling of "loving," but also because focuses on a topic that's not dear to my heart--football. (I understand it was a tie-in with her Super Bowl ... Read More

VH1 counted down their list of the 100 Greatest Women in Music last week, and while I feel some ladies were overlooked and others given a spot they shouldn't have, I do applaud VH1 for recognizing the contributions that female musicians have made to the music industry.
The list spans the past two decades— wow, has it really been that long since the 90s? Many of the ladies on this list broke musical barriers, fighting their way into arenas that were ... Read More

M.I.A. ain’t M.I.A. no more! (I…couldn’t stop myself from typing that.) After releasing a not particularly well-received third album in 2010 and having some beef with the New York Times, the rapper/singer-songwriter had a pretty slow 2011. But in the last month, she's made it back to the forefront of your internet news feeds: she released the single, "Bad Girls," signed on to perform at the Super Bowl halftime show with Madonna and Nicki Minaj, ...

Attention Madge fans, the new trailer for Madonna's movie W.E. has dropped. Will it be her comeback into the film world? From the looks of the trailer, the cinematography looks beautiful and the music is lovely.
The film, written and directed by Madonna, takes place in 1930s England, and is Madonna's take on the affair between American socialite Wallis Simpson and and King Edward VII. King Edward later abdicated the throne to be with Ms. ... Read More

The formulas for success in the Land of Show Business are quite clear. Playing a politician or mentally challenged character will get most men an oscar, making a movie about war or funny-looking people in lands unknown will get most directors 9 oscars, and wrinkles on a woman can cost her a career.

we want to know what you think of it.

Best-selling author Wendy Shanker opens her latest memoir, Are You My Guru? How Medicine, Meditation and Madonna Saved My Life (Penguin, September 2010), with a comparison of sick bodies. Her own--as a person living with a rare autoimmune disorder--and Madonna's--as a person who "could crush your head between her thighs while she's prancing around singing 'Holiday.'" From the first page she lets us know that Madonna provides "an example of unrelenting strength." ... Read More
Forbes Magazine has just released its annual list of “The 100 Most Powerful Celebrities” and it appears the past year was particularly good for Hollywood’s most talented and versatile ladies.
Raking in a ridiculous $315 million from her media empire, the one and only Oprah Winfrey kicked Angelina Jolie out of the No. 1 spot to reclaim her throne.
She’s followed by Beyonce at No. 2 who earned $87 million largely due to her ... Read More

The Naked Truth, a photographic & video survey of 50 years of Voyeurism, Nudity and Sex, curated by Ruben Natal-San Miguel opened today at the housprojects gallery on Howard Street, Soho, NYC.
There are the classic couplings of Bert Stern & Marilyn Monroe, David La Chapelle & Amanda Lepore and Herb Ritts & Madonna. But some of the most powerful images are from artists I was less familiar with, like Marla Rutherford's Spring Cleaning ... Read More
