7 Times Madonna Pushed the Envelope

Madonna was a trailblazer in so many ways during her still-going career. She’s pushed the envelope in the music industry in countless ways from singing about taboo themes such as abortion and homosexuality to putting it all out there—literally—in the pages of her Sexbook. Today, she’s recognized as the best-selling female artist of all time. Musicians today like Miley Cyrus and Beyoncé, among others wouldn’t be as far along as they are without her influence. Could anyone else have pulled off a cone bra? We think not.

Australian ticket website created Madonna waiting list

It looks like Madonna might be gearing up to announce a world tour, after an Australian ticket website published a Madonna waiting list without any shows currently announced there.

The Australian site Ticketek recently created a new section entitled, “WAITLIST NOW FOR MADONNA”, along with the caption, “Waitlist your favourite events and we’ll contact you by email when any information becomes available.”

Artists only usually have waiting lists on ticket websites when they have an upcoming show planned, and many are taking this to mean that Madonna will be embarking on a world tour.

The singer was forced to cancel the Australian leg of her MDNA tour in 2012, and subsequently promised Australia “the greatest show on earth” when she next visited.

Has Madonna recorded a song for ‘The Giver’ soundtrack?

….’I have been reporting, for the past couple months, that Madonna has recorded a soundtrack song. I wasn’t–and still am not–100 percent sure which movie it is for. However, I know for a fact that Interscope, who is producing the soundtrack for “The Giver,” asked Madonna to submit a song. This was around the end of April, even when the soundtrack was supposedly finished. When Madonna announced a song called “Messiah” this week, which would perfectly fit in with the theme of “The Giver,” I was 100 percent sure the song was from ‘The Giver.” I attended an early screening of the film last evening and was one hundred percent sure I would hear Madonna’s song. I even hinted it on Twitter, but had to delete all my tweets about the film because The Weinstein Company (rightfully so) was pissed.

Before I knew it, the closing credits came. However, there was no music being played for most of credits. I have never seen that in such a big movie before. There was another song being played towards the very end of the credits, but I couldn’t make out who it was and was told that the final song playing probably wouldn’t make it in the final cut. I thought that, perhaps, Madonna’s song is not finished yet and that’s why there was no music. I asked a representative from The Weinstein Company, and they were not able to give me an answer–which means yes, right?

Having a song on “The Giver” would be a HUGE career advantage for Madonna. Even if it doesn’t become a huge chart hit, the song will certainly add to her list of already great movie songs. There is also the possibility that Madge would get both a Golden Globe and Oscar nomination. “The Giver” is a movie that Madonna would absolutely love and her involvement can only enhance the already excellent film. The main character “Jonas” is basically a male version of the rebellious Madonna. Let’s hope we get some answers soon.’

Madonna shows up for jury duty in Manhattan, released to prevent ‘further distraction’

The Material Girl — who had been excused in May thanks to a doctor’s note — was flanked by a security entourage as the entered into the first-floor clerk’s office and not the regular jury assembly room on Monday. She was excused because there was ‘ample jurors’ today and bypassed being questioned to join a panel because her presence was causing a commotion at the courthouse.


Who’s that girl showing up for jury duty? Yep, it’s Madonna.
After dodging jury duty with a doctor’s note on May 27, Madonna arrived at 60 Centre St. Monday morning with an entourage fit for a diva.
But she was soon gone. While regular folks summoned to do their civic duty sat through hours of waiting, Madonna was sprung after an hour and a half.
She was about 30 minutes late for her 10 a.m. scheduled arrival time, which is an hour later than the 9 a.m. time regular prospective jurors are asked to arrive.
“I’m proud to do my job,” she said, standing tall as she left the courthouse with a gaggle of handlers and security guards.
She didn’t respond to questions about special treatment.

On her way out of the iconic building overlooking Foley Square, the Material Girl showed she could still turn heads.
“That’s Madonna!” one star-struck onlooker said.
“She looks so thin, right?” another chimed in.
A group of fans stopped in their tracks to capture the pop icon’s court cameo.
The Upper West Sider had been ushered into the first-floor clerk’s office instead of the regular jury assembly room.


Madonna was not questioned for a panel.
A court official said the decision was made to let her go early because her presence was a distraction.
“We had ample jurors today and had we needed her, she would have been sent out on a panel,” said New York State Unified Court System spokesman David Bookstaver. “We had sufficient jurors not to have created a further distraction for the courthouse.”
“She got credit for her service and we’re delighted she came,” he added.
Madonna is off the hook for jury service in New York for four years.
