Mattel is releasing an Elizabeth Taylor doll meant to celebrate her devotion to the AIDS cause. It's $150. Is any of that going to AIDS?

Not since Madonna: Innocence Lost have I been less interested in a movie on a subject in which I should be mind-bogglingly interested. From Star (December 3, 2012).
Today was the day when fans could spend $164.40 on a Truth or Dare fragrance at Macy's Herald Square and, presuming they were among the first 200 to do so, earn access to an exclusive Q&A event with Madonna tomorrow evening at the same location.
The last Macy's event had taught me a few things. First, it taught me not to take for granted that every employee would know exactly what was going on. More reassuringly, it taught me that events like this—with little more than some print ads to announce it—do not draw fans by the thousands. (Last time, the event was for the first 350 people to spend $75 on Material Girl items and I had no problem strolling into the store an hour after it opened and securing my position.)
Still, if you care, you worry. So I wondered if people might camp out.
Do yourself a favor—if you are interested in celebrity, in self-examination, in New York City, in Marilyn Monroe and/or Liz Taylor, in sex, in humor...check out Mr. Wow Blog, a new, no-frills, all-thrills blog by an anonymous gay man with a talent for writing that will soon be anything but. It's in its infancy but this promising entry should keep you coming back to watch it get through the toddler years and beyond.
Head over to Drowned Madonna for Madonna's Truth or Dare fragrance commercial— it is gorgeous. She looks fantastic! The flashed-out (and, one assumes, digitally enhanced as well) clip is high art among ads, reminding me of a far less campy (no dialogue) version of Elizabeth Taylor's notoriously fabulous White Diamonds spot.
Madonna's halftime show at the Super Bowl drew an average of 114 million viewers, making it the most-watched halftime show (and one of the most-watched ANYTHINGS) in history. The Super Bowl overall averaged 111.3 million viewers, making it the most-watched broadcast in history, and peaked with 117 million viewers toward the end. Seems to be selling some music for her, too.
Just for shits and giggles, here are all the celeb tweets—mostly good, some bad—regarding Madonna's performance. Send me any others you fine and I'll keep this as a living record, a sort of glitterati (because some of these people stretch the definition of "celeb" let alone "stars"!) reactions...
