Madonna talks to Jonathan Ross about BRITs fall, family, fashion and comedy

This Saturday sees the episode of The Jonathan Ross Show Madonna fans have been waiting for air, as Madge sits down with Jonathan for an in-depth chat.

From 9.20 on Saturday March 14, Madonna will open up about everything from THAT performance at the BRITs, to her love of London and what the future holds for her career.

She will also delight with two very special performances from her Rebel Heart album, donning a black and red matador ensemble for Living For Love and a black Marc Jacobs dress and boots for new single, Ghosttown.

Speaking about her BRITs performance and the now infamous fall, she told Jonathan: “I didn’t hurt my butt, I hurt my head. I did. I know how to fall, I’ve fallen off my horse many times and I tucked and I have good core strength… but the thing is, I had a little bit of a whiplash and I smacked the back of my head so there was a man standing over me with a flashlight until about 3am making sure that I was still compos mentis.”

Madonna – who did not want to watch the clip back during her interview – continued: “It was a horrible nightmare because I like to be amazing. Seriously I rehearse and I rehearse and I rehearse so that when I do the show, it’s effortless and I create magic and I did the opposite. I actually created a horror show for everyone!” Far from it, Madonna.

Jonathan asked whether her records are more personal now and she said: “I think I always have a handful of songs on all of my records that are quite personal but I think on this record in particular, probably the majority of them are quite personal.”

On the lyrics to her song, Joan of Arc, which are about feeling hurt by what people say about her, Madonna said: “I like to think of myself as a soldier who is going to get through it and after over 30 years in this business, I have learned to tune out the noise and to focus on my work and to focus on what matters in life but there are times when what people say does get to me and especially when I feel wrongly accused of something or seriously misunderstood. I know it goes with the territory but I’m not going to lie, it does bother me from time to time so I guess that’s what that song is about, that I can’t always brush it off my shoulder and sometimes I am wounded by things that people say.”

Madonna may have returned to America to live, but she still has a house in London and loves life in the UK.

“Do you know what I really liked about being here? I felt like I could start all over again, and I really enjoyed, I felt like I was in an exotic place even. England is very similar to America in many ways, it’s very different so I learned to love and appreciate things about English culture that I didn’t grow up with.”

The Queen of pop went on to praise those she has collaborated with, in particular Kanye West.

“First of all, I have to love their music and I think that Kanye [West] is definitely ahead of the curve when it comes to music and especially his production. I love the sound, he always has unusual and unique ideas and I wanted to work with him and at first it didn’t seem like it was going to happen and then it did at the last minute and I’m glad that it did.”

So what does the future hold for Madonna? As well as the tour, she said: “I’m going to do stand up comedy!”

Find out more about that and watch the full fascinating interview on The Jonathan Ross Show on Saturday at 9.20pm. Heading out? Don’t worry, you can catch up on the STV Player.

Extra show Amsterdam Sunday December 6 Ziggo Dome Press Release

Extra concert Madonna op zondag 6 december in Ziggo Dome
Wegens de grote vraag naar kaarten voor het concert van Madonna is er zojuist een tweede concert in Nederland toegevoegd op zondag 6 december in Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam. De concerten maken deel uit van de Rebel Heart Tour waarmee ze 35 verschillende steden aandoet. De kaartverkoop voor het extra concert start donderdag 19 maart om 10.00 uur.

De ‘Rebel Heart’ Tour volgt op de release van Madonna’s nieuwe album Rebel Heart dat wereldwijd al lovende kritieken kreeg.
Zo schreef The Sun ‘De Queen of Pop zal wederom regeren – Madonna zal haar beste album in 17 jaar uitbrengen en het is één van de beste van haar hele carrière.’
Na het geweldige optreden van Madonna tijdens de Grammy Award uitreiking belandden drie songs van Rebel Heart in de top van de iTunes charts. Haar huidige single “Living For Love” staat op nummer 1 in de Billboard Dance Charts. Dit is de 44e keer dat zij bovenaan de top van die lijst prijkt

Naast haar buitengewone succes als artiest, songwriter en producer, heeft Madonna ook de reputatie van één van ‘s werelds meest succesvolle live-artiesten aller tijden. Haar ‘Sticky & Sweet Tour’ uit 2008/2009 gaat de geschiedenisboeken in als de meest winstgevende tournee van een soloartiest en de MDNA tournee uit 2012 was het meeste succesvolle van dat jaar.

Ga naar www.madonna.com en www.livenation.com voor de volledige informatie over de tournee en ticketverkoop.

Van maandag 16 maart 10:00 tot woensdag 18 maart 15:00 is het al mogelijk kaarten voor dit concert te kopen via de speciale American Express presale via www.americanexpress.nl/livenation.

Where Madonna partied until dawn — and more on the Material Girl’s NYC life

Move over, Gaga, and take a hike, Taylor — the true Queen of Pop has returned for her crown.
This week, Madonna released her 13th album, “Rebel Heart,” and it finds her in a reflective mood. In particular, one song called “Veni Vedi Vici” references her early days scraping together rent while living on the Lower East Side before her rise to fame in the mid-’80s. More than 30 years later, the 56-year-old has certainly left her mark around Gotham — and the city is full of Madonna-related history. This is her New York.

Like so many wannabe stars in the 1980s, the Roxy and Danceteria were two places Madonna played to help hone her act. Legendary New York photographer Bob Gruen recalls seeing her perform at both venues. “I first saw her play at the Roxy in 1983,” he tells The Post. “It was the style to wear a lot of belts back then, and she had six or seven of them that would fall down to her knees. She looked pretty awkward, but a few months later, she played on the roof of Danceteria. She had already gotten a lot better and this time, the show was packed.”
