Check out @georgegustines lovely article in the @nytimes in which my "Love is love" contribution is revealed. This first of a kind illustration was done with #jkrowling's blessing, inspired by her quote: “Differences of habit and language are nothing at all if our aims are identical and our hearts are open.” –The Goblet of Fire #harrypotter #Loveislove is an amazing anthology and collaboration among so many of comicdom's finest talents with all proceeds going to the victims, survivors, and their families of the Orlando shooting tragedy via EQUALITY FLORIDA. I want to thank @idwpublishing editor #SarahGaydos and @dccomics Vertigo group editor @jamie_s_rich for their tireless work in making this book a reality. The full uncropped image available in the book in stores 12/28. Colors by the magnificent @markchidc!

BILLBOARD Woman Of The Year Madonna On Being Okay With Trump The Person, Not Trump The President, Plus: WOMEN HATE WOMEN Comments (0)

Madonna Billboard(Image  by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott via Billboard)

In Billboard's new cover story, Madonna — the trade publication's choices for Woman of the Year 2016 — speaks articulately about the Trump phenomenon, as well as her own past with the Not-My-President-elect. Fabulously, she is interviews by the politically passionate Elizabeth Banks, who deliciously references their appearance together in the abysmal Swept Away, Madonna's so-far-last starring movie role.

Banks writes:

[Madonna] told me that my audition was funny and that I’d be good in the movie, and I just tried to keep ­breathing. I assume it was in that moment that Guy concluded I’d be the perfect, nubile idiot to cast in Swept Away. I won the part. The next few weeks were surreal for all of us. I had seen Madonna in concert as a teenager and had splurged on tickets for her Staples Center show scheduled for Sept. 11, 2001. Needless to say, that concert was postponed as the world came undone. But a couple of weeks after we met, I watched Madonna finish her Drowned World Tour. Before the music began that night, she started with a prayer for peace: “If you want to change the world, change yourself,” she told the crowd. Through tears, I sang along for the entire show.

On the topic of relevance and ageism, Madonna is painfully on-point:

I don’t ever think about my age until someone says something about it. I feel that I have wisdom, experience, knowledge and a point of view that is important. Can a teenager relate to that? Probably not. But that’s OK. I understand that. “Relevance” is a catchphrase that people throw out because we live in a world full of discrimination. Age is only brought up with regard to women. It’s connected to sexism, chauvinism and misogyny. When Leonardo is 60 years old, no one is going to talk about his relevance. Am I relevant as a female in this society that hates women? Well, to people who are educated and are not chauvinists or ­misogynists, yes.

Saying she felt “like someone died” when Hillary lost, Madonna speaks of interacting with Trump in the past. She is surprisingly even-handed, if clearly a critic:

I did a photo shoot years ago at [Trump’s] Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach [Fla.] for a Versace campaign. He’s a very friendly guy, ­charismatic in that ­boastful, macho, alpha-male way. I found his political incorrectness amusing. Of course, I didn’t know he was going to be running for ­president 20 years later. People like that exist in the world, I’m OK with it. They just can’t be heads of state. I just can’t put him and Barack Obama in the same ­sentence, same room, same job description.

On why so damn many women voted for the cheerfully misogynistic Trump, Madonna goes there fearlessly and ain't lie:

Women hate women. That’s what I think it is. Women’s nature is not to support other women. It’s really sad. Men protect each other, and women protect their men and children.

More of Madonna's pearls of wisdom from this fascinating piece here. Madonna will receive Billboard's Woman of the Year award at Billboard's Women in Music event December 9 in New York City. It airs on Lifetime December 12.

Madonna Slams Trump In Miami Art Basel Performance, Pledges To Remarry Sean Penn Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2016-12-03 at 1.35.21 AM(Images via Facebook @madonna)

After an auction at which her Rebel Heart Tour dress was auctioned for the princessly sum of $150K and at which she pledged to remarry ex-husband Sean Penn, Madonna performed an hour-long gig in Miami early Saturday that included a cover of “Send in the Clowns,” rarely performed tracks “Like It or Not,” “I'm So Stupid,” “Beautiful Stranger,” “Easy Ride,” and “American Life,” as well as smash hits “Don't Tell Me,” “Express Yourself” and “Holiday.”

But maybe the biggest surprise was a slow-burn take on Britney Spears's “Toxic,” performed in front of anti-Trump projections. She also tried her hand at stand-up comedy and banter, telling jokes that attendees Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle (!) must have found especially painful. The groaner quality of the jokes was part of her shtick, but she should shtick to singing. [Cymbal crash.]

The memorable spectacle raised $7.5 million for Raising Malawi, Madonna's personal charity established to help the African nation from which she adopted two children. $10,000 of that came from a fan who spontaneously offered her the bread in exchange for a kiss. (No tongue.)

Madonna even tried her hand feet at some tapdancing for the first time ever, allowed a lucky fan to hold the mic for her finale, gave one reluctant dude a lap dance, berated the audience and graciously thanked everyone for their help.

Seems like a good time was had by all, and that included Courtney Love (no compacts were thrown), Leonardo DiCaprio, Dave Chappelle, Petra Nemcova, Bethenny Frankel, emcee James Corden and Ariana Grande, who gamely modeled Madonna's Rebel Heart Tour dress and danced with her idol.
