Sounds like an incredibly promising advance in the push for an HIV vaccine.

“Hanging out with Keith and Jean-Michel deeply influenced me. Their approach to art was aimed at making it accessible to people, in the subway, on the street. It wasn’t elitist, you didn’t have to pay for it, go to a museum or gallery or frequent rich people, you could be anyone.”
Interestingly, the pop icon most frequently praised for her business acumen and branding speaks out against commodification of art:
“By allowing ourselves to be consumed by corporate branding, worrying about having the approval of others and promoting only what is acceptable and popular, we destroy our art and everything about it that’s unique.”
She also comments on her use of self in her work, comparing it to Frida Kahlo; an apt comparison if ever there was one.
The images by Tom Munro surprised me in that I've never been a fan of his work with Madonna, though to be fair he most famously shot her during a period when her face was kinda in transition. This spread looks more Mert + Marcus to me, Madonna seems very engaged, and there are several memorable shots—I especially like her shouting with her cane and the slightly insane-looking shot of Madonna seated in a chair.
The shot that will get the most play will be the one in which her right breast is exposed, and probably because it's been so retouched it looks like the boob of a blow-up doll. Madonna has great tits...why go overboard trying to perfect them?
A good, solid, perhaps even classic Madonna cover story that effectively teases her next album, making it sound like it couldn't possibly be made up of disposable disco. But maybe it will be Daft Punk-like transcendant disco...if this snippet on Billboard is (praying...praying) Madonna.

Buzzfeed Contributor (!) Madonna identifies the 11 "freedom fighters" who have most inspired her. For longtime fans, there won't be any surprises, for others, there won't be any odd men out.

Now is not the time for Matthew to be haunting Madonna auctions, but I did my darnedest anyway at the Myers Fine Art auction of Martin Burgoyne's personal effects. Burgoyne, you will recall, was Madonna's gay BFF and one-time roommate who designed her early record sleeves, designed her first album cover (which was not used) using Edo Bertoglio photographs and who died in his twenties of AIDS. Madonna was generous with Martin, helping him out personally and financially. I've always been fascinated by him and would have loved to have owned something from what was repeatedly called a "treasure trove" in all the media surrounding this auction by his elderly parents.
Drag fabulosa Linda Simpson is too young to remember when her alter ego, Les Simpson, took these wonderful photos that are a part of NYC, c. 1985, a show going up at ClampArt Gallery (521-531 W. 25th St., between 10th/11th Aves.), so she's probably just as amazed as we are by the early AIDS activism and '80s fashions he captured.
(The final three images in the above gallery are from the after-party of 1982's Night of 100 Stars, and include shots of Elizabeth Taylor, Linda Evans and Liza Minnelli.)
The show also features: Amy Arbus, Catherine McGann, Nan Goldin, Larry Clark, and other familiar names.
I'll be stopping by the show this Saturday to eyeball this work in the flesh. I expect it will be like stepping into a time machine. Thirty years really does fly by when you're having fun.
More of Les Simpson'80s shots here.
