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.

Phillip of West Hollywood Nights got (contrary to what he thinks) good shots of Darren Criss at Madonna's pop-up fashion retrospective at Macy's in L.A. this past week. Check out some of his shots of the duds in the above gallery, and visit his site (Work Unfriendly) for Madonna, men and more.
Here's his haiku-like report:

It was 24 hours of Desperately Seeking Susan for me this week, meeting Madonna on Wednesday for the celebration of her and Lola's Material Girl line and then meeting a surprisingly large contingent of the cast and crew of that '80s classic the following night when the Film Society of Lincoln Center hosted a 25th-anniversary screening.
Tickets to the event and after-party had been hard to come by, and it's no wonder—on top of some members of the press, the 268-seat theater must have had at least 25 people who'd worked on the movie, plus all their guests.
Left to right, top to bottom: Susan Seidelman's intro; Rosanna Arquette's bond with—and Mark Blum's raunchy screen-test with—Madonna; rushing the film out in case Madonna was a "flash-in-the-pan"; and funny casting stories...
