My Lovely Assistant: INTERVIEW Gets Madge-ical With Topless Madonna & David Blaine Comments (0)

See all the shots in the gallery above!

Madonna has co-created another memorable cover and spread for Interview, this time with her most recent photographers of choice, Mert and Marcus.

Madonna-Interview-14See them up-close-and-personal in the gallery!

In a series of images for the venerable magazine's “Art Issue,” she is serving attitudinous trout pout, a full helping of boobs, and the kind of daring that involves snakes, crosses, and sitting too close to the TV (which can cause cancer...move back! screams everyone's mom).

Madonna-coversThree girls three

Touches of the Like a Prayer era as well as the “Hollywood” video, but otherwise, it's a really fresh, bold shoot and look for her.

She tells the mag:

“We’re in the world of creating illusions and giving people the ability to dream and be inspired.”

Her interviewer? Publicity-whisperer magician David Blaine.

Madonna-Interview-7One of my favorites—it's so New Wave!

Madonna also brings up her roommate Martin Burgoyne, who died of AIDS, as well as the artists Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat (an ex) and Andy Warhol, all of whom she has survived by many years:

“I was attracted to creative people. You don't want to be the smartest person in the room; you want to be the dumbest in the room. You want to be surrounded by other thinking people who are going to say something that makes you think, 'Oh, my God, that's an amazing idea. Why didn't I think of that?' And somehow we found each other in Manhattan. That's the crazy thing. We found each other and we connected to each other and we moved around the city together. They supported my shows. I supported their shows. We were a unit. And I don't even know how it happened. It just did.”

It's a fantastic interview to match the great portfolio. The magazine describes her thirteenth studio album as coming in 2015; no word yet on whether all the leaks in recent days will affect that.

Quinto

Zachary Quinto has written a personal response regarding the backlash his Out Magazine comments on PrEP and HIV received. I don't see what the uproar is about—it's as if being cautious and measured and thoughtful is the new sin.

Persecution Cumplex: Is There Really A Truvada Backlash? Comments (0)

Truvada

I find parts of this Truvada video infuriating, but not for the reasons the makers think. It's supposed to cover (albeit in the space of a couple of minutes) the concept that Truvada, the drug you should really know about by now (most gay men I encountered still hadn't heard of it as recently as a year ago), and its backlash.

The introductory paragraph above the video states that Truvada is being called a party drug , but I've only ever seen it called that by a couple of very vocal critics.

I actually think the bulk of the alleged backlash is imaginary.
