Too Shy Comments (9)

A Q&A with Madonna in People (May 14, 2012) reveals some things you may not have known about her, such as her assertion that she is "shy." WTF? Or that her favorite food is French fries. Is this 1985? I want to see a picture of Madonna '12 eating fries!

The Queen's Speech: Attending Madonna's Movie Premiere Comments (25)

** All images in this post copyrighted. Do not remove and post anywhere without permission. **

MadMadonna gets teary thanking her late mom

I was invited to cover the red carpet for Madonna's W.E. premiere at the Ziegfeld earlier tonight. Then I was uninvited. (Space.) Then I was re-invited. I wound up getting to go, and it was a blast of epic proportions. There was a very light turn-out of fans in the cold rain, but the press was packed into a long tent leading into the theater. I was placed two slots from the bitter end, which turned out to be a nice position because anyone who did the red carpet had to pass us to get inside.

IMG_5551

*IMG_1481I've had front row before but A-1...I'd be riding her dress train!

I made friends with a woman covering for Pink Is the New Blog, but she was whisked away ("first, they came for...") to a spot in the lobby so I wound up bonding with Matt from Hard Candy Music. As I told him, we were probably the lowest men on the totem pole so as such would be lucky to sniff Madonna's stardust as she breezed by. Which meant anything else would be a cause for joyous celebration. We also chit-chatted with a sexy, dark-haired (they have those there?) Swede named Pablo (they have those there, too?) who shoots for Vogue. He was much nicer than you'd expect for a Vogue shooter, and him saying, "One shot for Vogue?" had the effect of a brick wall, stopping nearly every celeb who breezed by. (Patti Smith was not impressed, but I was fucking impressed that Patti Smith walked past me, let alone that she was attending a movie by Madonna.)

The carpet got off to a slow start, but the tip sheet was insane! Check out all the names: 

PhotoSome of these people didn't do press or didn't show

The first star on the carpet seemed to be one of the film's two male leads, dreamy James D'Arcy, who looks even better with a shaved head that he does with his foppish blond Edward 'do.

QuickTime PlayerScreenSnapz002Spartacus sexpot Lucy Lawless with Liam McIntyre; she unceremoniously plopped her coat on the carpet to pose. She was fab!

Big, unaffiliated stars slipped past most of the press, namely Ewan McGregor (who was at one point attached to do this film), Julia Stiles (who was having absolutely none of any press except for a shot for Vogue), Andrew McCarthy (who gamely answered my question about a fantasy Madonna collaboration: "A duet, of course!"), a stunning Lucy Lawless with equally stunning Liam McIntyre (she gave me a great answer, he sort of avoided making eye contact rather than give us a "no") and then still others who I only saw fleetingingly like Diane von Furstenberg, Guy Oseary (Madonna's manager said he was too stressed to answer my question), Donna Karan, Calvin Klein (big kiss for and from Madonna and some conspiratorial chatting amongst them, perhaps about hot young guys!), Lady Bunny (I was impressed, too), Zac Posen, Ivanka Trump (pretty, actually) Jack McCollough & Lazaro Hernandez (hotness) and several people even I didn't recognize. (Not Z-listers, more like fashion A-listers.)

In People (January 23, 2012), Madonna grants an interview entirely about her movie W.E. In discussing royalty, she says of Prince Charles:

"I had dinner with Prince Charles once. He stole lettuce off my plate. [Laughs] He was quite fun."

She also reveals that Lola is pretty mature for 15 because "her mother's been divorced twice, so..."

And I Am A Material Girl...That's Debateable Comments (9)

SafariScreenSnapz001
Madonna's search for the next "Material Girl" just got hilarious with this dryly funny clip featuring the Material Mom and her own li'l Material Girl, Lola. I love their interplay. Madonna almost bursts out laughing when claiming she cares about feelings, and Lola's sardonic replies ("That's debateable..." "In old person world...") are priceless. Also, Madonna found her best angle of the moment, no? Gorgeous, much? After the jump...
