Will Julia Fox Costar in the Madonna Biopic?

Yes, Madonna and Kanye West collaborated years ago, but Madonna herself gave a little bit more context to why she was spotted hanging out with with West and his new girlfriend Julia Fox this weekend: she’s casting for her biopic. Her interest, it turns out, was more about meeting Julia, with West and the rest of his entourage being an added bonus. “Went to dinner with Julia to talk about my movie and some other folks showed up…………………,” the queen of pop wrote in an Instagram post sharing fresh photos from the power hang.

Hard Candy Showcase Paris May 6, 2008 photo gallery

The longest we have ever queued was for Madonna’s Hard Candy Showcase at Olympia in Paris on May 6, 2008. We spent a total of 27 hours on the streets of Paris and in the end we found out hadn’t needed to. Madonna had performed a promotional set to promote her new record in New York (with Justin Timberlake present as musical guest) and now it was time to delight the French (and those who traveled from abroad) to her Candy Shop. 

Only 30 minutes before tickets and wristbands were handed out to the queuing fans, we received a phone call from Warner Music telling us that there were tickets reserved to our name at the box office…Anyhow we were still very excited and pretty damn exhausted by the time we received the goods to gain entry to tonight’s event. By the time Madonna finally hit the stage that night at 10.30pm our feet felt like they were standing on a bed of nails. In the end Madonna was flawless and totally worth the wrecked feet.

Hard Candy FAME album launch party Amsterdam April 24, 2008 photo gallery

We celebrated the launch of Hard Candy, Madonna’s 2008 studio album with a giant Candy Shop themed party at FAME in Amsterdam.

Once again we were fortunate enough to be able to purchase the album on the night before the commercial release. The turnout was fantastic and even surpassed the success of the Confessions on a Dance Floor launch party. Upon purchase of the album fans were given a free Dutch promotional poster and coasters made available by FAME Megastore.

The album was played loud and everyone danced the night away. A few weeks prior we had been invited for a meeting over at Warner Music to discuss the promotion for the upcoming album and were treated to a very first listen of ‘Give It 2 Me’, and it completely blew our minds, a surefire hit! In Holland it became Madonna’s most succesful single (just behind ‘Hung Up’) spending six weeks at the top spot in the official Top 40 charts.

Check out the full updated photo gallery of the launch party HERE and you might spot yourself!

De succesvolle kunstenaar Rhed blijkt de zoon van Madonna, maar zijn achternaam gebruikt hij niet (Dutch news)

De jonge schilder die opereert onder de naam Rhed en werk verkoopt voor vijfcijferige prijzen, blijkt de zoon van Madonna te zijn. Een echt talent of een gevalletje kruiwagensucces? De critici zijn het er niet over eens.

In een kunstmarkt waar ‘jong, nieuw en aanstormend’ de categorie is waar verzamelaars het meest opgewonden van raken, gooit Rhed hoge ogen. Hij is amper 21 jaar oud, maar heeft nu al zijn derde solotentoonstelling bij Tanya Baxter Contemporary, de Londense galerie die hem vertegenwoordigt.

Live Earth July 7, 2007 photo gallery

On July 7, 2007 Madonna performed as the final act at the Live Earth Benefit in London. 

She performed a brand new song co-produced with Pharrell titled ‘Hey You’ which was used as the theme song of the event. She then performed ‘Ray of Light’, a brand new version of ‘La Isla Bonita/Lela Pala Tute’ with Gogol Bordello and finished the set with ‘Hung Up.’

Right before Madonna’s performance we were allowed standing among security and had a clear view of Madonna’s performance. It was a long day, especially if you weren’t into rock or alternative music, thank goodness for the Pussycat Dolls!

We have updated and enhanced our photographs of the event, click HERE to view them all.
