Madonna made a surprise appearance at the Stonewall Inn in NYC on New Year’s Eve to officially kick-off 2019 and the 50th anniversary of Stonewall.
She recently signed on as a Stonewall Ambassador, a program launched by Pride Live in June to elevate awareness and support for the 50th anniversary and Stonewall Day on June 28, 2019.
People expected something a week ago when Stonewall Inn — the bar in New York’s Greenwich Village where the riots that kicked off the modern LGBTQ movement took place in 1969 — announced that Madonna had been named an ambassador for the 50th anniversary celebrations. However, they may not have expected it quite so soon. On New Year’s Eve, word leaked out that Madonna would be making an appearance, and not long after midnight, she did, giving a speech and then performing two songs accompanied by David Banda (her adopted 13-year-old son) on acoustic guitar.

The Stonewall Inn on Sunday announced that Madonna has been named a Stonewall Ambassador for the upcoming 50th anniversary Stonewall celebrations this June, marking the riots that kicked off the modern LGBTQ rights movement.
Wrote The Stonewall Inn and Pride Live Official in an Instagram post: ‘Rebel. Maverick. Barrier breaker. Trailblazer. Icon. Activist. Mother. Ally. Stonewall Ambassador. Today we are insanely proud to announce Madonna is a Stonewall Ambassador supporting Stonewall Day + the 50th anniversary of Stonewall!!’
Madonna visited the Stonewall Inn last week ahead of the official announcement.
The move comes as Madonna prepares to release her 14th studio album. She has been teasing it on Instagram with the hashtag #magic for many weeks.
Pride Live Official posted this to an Instagram story. So much “magic” coming, eh?
And who’s TeamID?
Variety reports that it’s Madonna’s new public relations firm: ‘Madonna has a new public relations team. The singer has signed with Kelly Bush Novak of ID, whose clients include Serena Williams, Alfonso Cuarón, Ben Stiller, Pamela Adlon, Cynthia Erivo, Hannah Gadsby, Ellen Page, Janelle Monáe, and David Oyelowo, among many others. Bush Novak founded ID in 1993 and the company, which has offices in New York and Los Angeles, is home to veteran Hollywood publicists Mara Buxbaum (Michelle Williams, Jake Gyllenhaal, Sean Penn), Bebe Lerner (Emily Blunt, John Krasinski) and Matt Labov (Seth Rogen, Bill Hader), among others. Its music division is headed by Allison Elbl (James Taylor, Steve Martin, Marshmello). Madonna is managed by Guy Oseary of Maverick.’
Next summer, WorldPride comes to New York City and the United States for the first time to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising. The sixth edition of the culturally-diverse WorldPride will attract millions of LGBTQI+ revelers for the largest celebration of Pride in history.
Will the queen of pop be performing? We shall see.

Madonna had previously been represented by BB Gun Press, which was founded by veteran music publicist Brian Bumbery — he left for Apple to head up publicity for Apple Music in August, Variety reported. Prior to that, she had been represented for more than 20 years by Liz Rosenberg, who runs her own New York City-based shop with a roster that includes Cher and Michael Buble.
According to an insider, Madonna was looking at several top public relations firms in search of a company that could provide a “team” of support. Indeed, in Bush Novak’s Instagram — her account is private — announcing the signing, she notes, “As a life-long fan of this incredible artist, I’m proud to share I’m leading a passionate team at ID for Madonna.” She thanks Oseary, who also manages U2, “for the opportunity.”

Cape Town – Musician and actor Nakhane Toure has been living his best life in Europe and after revealing that he headed to Portugal for some time out and to write some music, the singer also discovered that he had a legend as a fan.
The Queen of Pop, Madonna took to Instagram to express her excitement at meeting Nakhane as well as American rapper, Mykki in Lisbon.
The 60-year-old also referred to the The Wound actor as one of her favourite artists.
It’s come to light that Madonna and Michelle Pfeiffer were apparently considered for the lead in classic movie ‘Working Girl’ before Melanie Griffith landed the role.
“Was such a treat introducing my 2 favourite artists tonight in Lisbon! @_mykki_ @nakhaneofficial #fearless#unique#inspiring,” she captioned a picture of the two artists.
Posting the same picture which was taken by Madonna herself, Nakhane wrote a heartfelt post about how the introduction to Mykki’s music changed his outlook on the LGBTIQ+ community and how it helped him become honest with himself.
“I’ve been in Portugal taking a break and writing music. At a dinner I finally met @_mykki_ A few years ago when I was still a Christian and in severe denial of my true identity, @felagucci introduced me to Mykki’s music. I was confronted with myself in a way that I couldn’t handle. I remember rejecting not only Mykki, but his music too. It was too much for me. What I was really thinking was that it was ‘too gay’. I was using the language of the people who were oppressing queer people (whether they knew it or not. “It’s alright to be queer, but don’t be too much. Stop being ‘over-the-top’ with it. Assimilate!” It was too honest,” he began.
“It was forcing me to deal with a part of myself that I was trying, with every fibre of my being, to suppress. Fast-forward to 2018: I came across his ‘High School Never Ends’ song and it’s @dielamb directed music video. It encompasses so much that I love about art: It is beautiful, brutal, romantic, honest and confrontational. I was ready. Looking back now, maybe Mykki’s music and image were part of the things that nudged me to come forward and be honest with myself about myself , “ he continued before crediting Madonna for the image.
