We have collected 16 different pressings, including this rare promo from Brazil with different artwork!

Lady Gaga, Pink NOT Writing “Anti-Madonna Anthem,” Despite Report

Lady Gaga and Pink are not writing an “anti-Madonna anthem” together, despite a bogus new report claiming the singers are teaming against their legendary predecessor. Gossip Cop looked into the situation and we’ve exclusively learned the truth.

According to OK!, Pink is supporting Gaga in her feud against Madonna, who once called the singer’s music “reductive” and accused her of ripping off one of her songs. “Pink feels sorry for Gaga and is taking her side in her Madonna feud,” a so-called “source” tells the magazine. “She thinks Gaga’s been treated rotten and is really talented and vulnerable right now.”

The outlet’s questionable insider adds, “Pink’s a tough girl and she doesn’t like the way Madonna’s been trashing her friend all over town, saying that Gaga’s music is a bad rip-off of hers.” The supposed source further contends that Gaga and Pink are currently “writing lyrics that target Madonna as superficial and a fraud.” But Gossip Cop checked in with multiple sources close to the situation, none of whom had heard anything about Gaga and Pink teaming up on new music. A rep for Gaga also confirms that the tabloid’s tale is “not true.”

It’s possible this article was concocted simply because Pink defended the fellow singer earlier this year. After Gaga was accused of stealing Pink’s moves by performing a high-wire acrobatic stunt during the 2017 Super Bowl halftime show, Pink wrote on Instagram, “Let’s celebrate a woman who has the guts to jump off a roof and stand up there in the first place. Who cares if I flew first? Cause I didn’t! Cirque and Peter Pan been in the air for years!” Pink clearly admires the pop star, but that doesn’t mean she’s collaborating with her on a Madonna diss track.

This also isn’t the first time Gossip Cop has had to debunk a phony article surrounding the tension between the two singers. We recently busted OK!’s sister publication, the National Enquirer, for making up a ridiculous story about Madonna challenging Gaga to a boxing match in Las Vegas. This latest report is similarly false.

Vote for Desperately Seeking Susan Design for #PINLORDCOLLAB

Ryan Arya’s latest enamel pin design is based on the Desperately Seeking Susan pool scene, and it’s the finalist to be produced as a limited-edition run via pin giant, Pin Lord. He submitted the design because he wanted to introduce 80s Madonna to their 100k following (it’s a young-ish following).

If you like it, and would be kind enough to help him out, all you need to do is write @windowblues (that’s my Insta) on the post below.

Mega record and CD fair Utrecht – report

Even though I have been visiting the record fair in Utrecht since the early 90’s, it seems like it has never been more popular than it is now. I remember a time when the amount of visitors was declining and more and more empty spaces would turn up at the fair. However it seems that those days are gone as it looked like the biggest turn out ever! In fact it was so crowded that people (grown men to be exact) were actually fighting with each other when gaining entrance. You could compare it to queuing at a Madonna show, a lot of pushing and shoving!

So many dealers from all over the world brought along some excellent Madonna gear. Unfortunately still too many bootleg vinyls around (and they just keep on coming), dealers please do us collectors a favour and focus on the real collectible items! The fair is open again tomorrow from 10-17, for more info visit www.recordplanet.nl

We managed to find a lot of very rare Madonna goodies and brought it home. Here is an example of what I bought (stay tuned for HQ scans of all of the items in our discography soon).

  • MADONNA – CD West Germany (silver CD, not the target version)
  • Like a Virgin – Germany mispressed disc
  • de baile – Spanish compilation PROMO from ’83 including ‘Everybody’ 
  • Express Yourself – Brazil PROMO 12″
  • Live To Tell – Italy 12″
  • Hanky Panky – UK 12″
  • American Life – Swedish sales presenter
  • Who’s That Girl – Bolivia LP
  • Live To Tell – Canada 12″
  • Like a Prayer – UK sales presenter with biography and promotional vinyl record
  • Like a Virgin – Sales Presenter (MEGA RARE)
  • Like a Prayer – Israel test pressing LP (MEGA RARE)
  • Like a Prayer (France 7″), Vogue (UK 7″), Crazy For You (Spain 7″)
