  • 'She's playing "B***h I'm Madonna"': Pop icon angers neighbors by putting up fake 'No parking' [tr]

    Madonna has angered her neighbors by hogging almost four cars' worth of prime parking space outside her $40 million Upper East Side townhouse - arranging to install fake 'No parking' signs to scare other motorists away. The fake signage includes a 'No parking' sign posted on the singer's security gate, and a 'Tenant parking only' sign mounted on a pole in a flower bed on the sidewalk. Both signs threaten that 'unauthorized vehicles will be towed away.' The signs differ in design and language from official Department of Transportation notices.

    Singapore (AFP) - Singapore's Roman Catholic archbishop has expressed concern at an upcoming concert by pop diva Madonna in the city-state and warned his flock against supporting those who "denigrate and insult religions". Archbishop William Goh said in a statement posted on the diocese website on Saturday that he had met various government officials to express the church's concerns about the February 28 concert, part of her global Rebel Heart Tour. The concert, at the 55,000-seat National Stadium, will be Madonna's first-ever in largely conservative Singapore. She was barred from performing in Singapore in 1993 after police said her performances...

    Madonna's 15-year-old son has flown the coup so he could stay with his dad ... the teen refuses to come home, Madonna went to court, Guy Richie went to another court ... it's a mess. It seems Rocco is sick of tagging along with mom during her world tour, and Thanksgiving on the road with her may have been the final straw. Rocco jumped ship and decided to live with his dad, Guy Richie over in London, and refused to return to Manhattan to spend XMAS with Madonna. That enraged her and, according to the NY Post, she personally ran...

During an interview with Europe 1 radio that is set to be aired in-full on Friday morning, the pop diva said "anti-Semitism is at an all-time high," in France and Europe.

    Madonna falls and the world gasps in laughter. Lets be honest, most of us howled ourselves hoarse watching the self-acclaimed Material Girl morph into Material Hurl at the BRIT Awards, Britains answer to the Grammys. For me, it perfectly personified the state of this once great legends career: dying on her a** in a pit of ignominy. I dont say that with any glee. I say it as someone who used to worship the ground she gyrated on. I watched Madonna perform at Londons Wembley Stadium in 1987 with a great friend of mine. We were both 22, shed just...

    Madonnas show-closing number at the 35th Annual BRIT Awards, held Wednesday at the O2 Arena in London, marked her first BRITS performance in 20 years. It should have been a triumph for the Living for Love diva, but a scary onstage wardrobe malfunction ruined the moment and nearly led to disaster. After a processional through the crowd with Madonna dressed in a full-body shroud, the singers devil-horned dancers attempted to remove her cape as she stood precariously at the edge of the stages upper platform. It appears, from almost instantly posted YouTube and Vine videos of the live broadcast, that...

Madonnas latest song is Living For Love and has been available for airplay since December 20 last year.

The video shoot for Like A Virgin would cement Madonnas place as a bona fide star and help turn her into a global pop icon. But for several turbulent days on location in Venice, Italy, in 1984 it was, recalls Weisner, like a fury had been unleashed. When I bitched back at her she...

For it appears the queen of re-invention may be on the verge of one of her most startling changes yet, after she revealed she was studying the Koran. The 55-year-old was raised a Roman Catholic, but for the past 17 years she has been a devout follower of Kabbalah, a mystical offshoot of Judaism. Now the singer, whose current partner is a Muslim, has begun investigating Islam....

But it wouldn't be a surprise if she did. When the ABC reporter, whose interview was relayed by the network's Sabrina Parise and posted at, questioned the diva's use of gun choreography in her current tour's stage show, she certainly expected a robust defense. But she probably didn't expect a trip into the land of the Second Amendment. Nonetheless, that's...

    <p>Republicans spend too much time complaining about liberals boycotting the advertisers on conservatives shows and not enough time doing the same thing to the Left. If movie stars trash conservatives, we should be very publicly telling people we're not going to their films and we should take credit if they bomb. If a corporate CEO embraces liberalism, don't buy that companys products and tell the world why you're doing it. Let him explain to his board of directors why standing up for gay marriage or abortion was worth losing millions of dollars. Seventy percent of the country is Christian, roughly half the country supports the Republican Party and forty percent of Americans are conservative. There are a lot of businesses, artists and musicians who simply cannot survive without the support of people like us. The only reason they dare to trash us or publicly support people who hate our guts is because we all too often shrug our shoulders and then willingly hand over our money to people who despise us.</p>

" Here is an opportunity for Mitt Romney to make a Pascal's Wager-like appeal to independent voters. You may be uncertain as to whether Romney will be a good president, but what you stake is finite, whereas the...
