When wearing a Madonna Virgin Tour shirt gets you suspended from school

“When Rachel, the shirt on her back, walked into the office of Harrison school principal Gary Friedland to ask him a question “he told her she would be suspended; that’s the word he used, ”  said Mrs. Dior. “She was hysterical when I got there 45 minutes later.”

Rebel Heart Tour Berlin photo gallery (November 10, 2015)

Madonna played the first of two nights of her Rebel Heart Tour in Berlin on November 10, 2015 at the Mercedes Benz Arena. Right before the show Madonna’s son Rocco was hanging around on the floor with friends, talking to girls in the audience. Whenever a Madonna fan approached him, he turned his back and walked the other way, it was obvious he didn’t want to be ‘bothered.’

Idris Elba (“Luther”) was tonight’s pre-show DJ as well as the one and only unapologetic bitch. Madonna performed “Secret” and “Rebel Heart” after the 80s medley, skipping “Who’s That Girl.”

“Burning Up” early German review

To celebrate “Burning Up” turning 40, check out this early review of the single from a (unknown) German magazine. This has been added to The First Album page.


“Madonna is a girl from Detroit who prefers to hang around in the New York rap/break/disco scene, her “Everybody” was one of my most played singles last year. Burning Up doesn’t quite have the same instant effect, it also reminds a little too clearly of the digital downtown disco with which Bobby O(rlando) is currently making a fortune. It’s amazing that James Mtume of all people is behind it, the same Mtume who has now presented his first solo maxi without his longtime shadow Reggie Lucas “Juicy Fruit” (Epic) a slow, intensive song that really breaks out in a great refrain. By the way, if you’re having trouble finding the maxis, it’s best to check out Disco-Pool”
