From the ELLE archive: Madonna

Since we met Madonna for our May 2008 issue, she’s been as busy as you’d expect. Her albums, Hard Candy, MDNA, and her third greatest hits album, Celebration, all reached number one. In addition to music, she created a 1980s-inspired clothing line with her daughter Lourdes, and opened a series of fitness centres. Unfortunately, just a few months after we interviewed Madonna, she split with husband Guy Ritchie.

Now, she’s rumoured to be performing at the Grammys this weekend, and we hope the rumours are true. We can’t wait to see what the Material Girl will pull out of the bag.

Madonna’s W.E. on Dutch Film1 in February

Romantisch kostuumdrama van Madonna waarin twee liefdesgeschiedenissen centraal staan.

wefilm1Engeland, 1936. De Amerikaanse Wallis Simpson heeft het hart van koning Edward VIII veroverd, maar trouwen mag niet. De Kerk laat Edward via de minister president de keus: de gescheiden Wallis of de troon. Hij volgt zijn hart en besluit na nog geen jaar koningschap af te treden. Wereldwijd worden ze als hertog en hertogin van Windsor gezien als meest romantische koppel van de eeuw. Parallel aan dit verhaal loopt de romance van Wally Winthrop in het New York van 1998. Hoe ongelukkiger Wally zich voelt in haar eigen huwelijk, hoe groter haar obsessie wordt voor het verhaal van koning Edward.

Na ‘Filth and Wisdom’ (2008) is dit de tweede film die geregisseerd werd door popicoon Madonna.

Will Madonna Join Pussy Riot Onstage in Brooklyn?

We’re hearing yes. Earlier this month it was announced that weirdos (Flaming Lips), jocks (Imagine Dragons), legends (Ms. Lauryn Hill), and the recently released from prison (Pussy Riot) will take the stage at Barclays Center on Feb. 5th for Amnesty International’s Bringing Human Rights Home concert. Then it was announced earlier this week that Pussy Riot would also be on hand. Now we’re being told that Madonna will be making an appearance as well, possibly joining Pussy Riot on stage. Of course, Madonna has long been a supporter of the group, writing “Free Pussy RIot” on her arms and back all during her MDNA tour.

We’ll keep you posted if anyone else is added or if this (very likely true) rumor turns out to be just that. Full original press release about the concert and a video of Madonna’s impassioned Pussy Riot speech in Moscow after the jump.

Madonna Rumored To Be Playing Amnesty International Concert In Brooklyn

Earlier this week it was announced that the massive Amnesty International concert at Barclays Center on February 5th will feature two members of Pussy Riot, who were just released from Russian prison camps last month. The concert is a return to the Amnesty concerts of the 1980s and ’90s (they stopped in 1998), and in that spirit some legendary talent has been expected to return with it—we now have it on good authority that Madonna has been confirmed to play at the show.

She also issued this call to action at the time: “I protest the conviction and sentencing of Pussy Riot to a penal colony for two years for a 40 second performance extolling their political opinions. Even if one disagrees with the location or how they chose to express themselves, the sentence is too harsh and in fact is inhumane. I call on all those who love freedom to condemn this unjust punishment. I urge artists around the world to speak up in protest against this travesty. They’ve spent enough time in jail. I call on ALL of Russia to let Pussy Riot go free.”

Organizers have promised big announcements up until the date of the show, so expect more of these surprises in the next week.

Seymour Stein On What Music, Advertising And Marketing Can Learn From Madonna

It’s no secret that record labels have been on the skids ever since mixed tapes, MP3s and iTunes disrupted their musical monopoly. But, why then, do some artists such as Madonna have staying power for decades no matter which way trends blow in the music business?

Seymour Stein, co-founder of Sire Records and vice president of Warner Bros. Records, has seen the ups and downs of the music industry first hand. Stein helped mold the punk and New Wave genres by cultivating artists such as The Smiths, the Ramones, Ice-T, The Cure, and Madonna. But perhaps Stein’s greatest accomplishment is that he’s been able to sustain a label through turbulent music industry headwinds.

Stein’s knack for knowing good music when he hears it and his instinct to sign artists brought about his partnership with Madonna. He was in a New York hospital in 1982 with an infection when he heard her demo for the song “Everybody.” Instantly he wanted to sign her, so he called her producer, a DJ friend of his. Madonna came to the hospital and signed with Sire Records. During a 2009 President’s Lecture at the Berlin School of Creative Leadership, Stein said his onetime client, Madonna, illustrates a few key points about marketing success. Here are some takeaways:
