Macklemore, Madonna: ‘Same Love’ Grammys wedding

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis were joined by Madonna for a historic performance of their LGBT equality anthem Same Love at the Grammys last night (January 26).

Some 34 couples, gay and straight, were married onstage during the performance in a mass wedding ceremony officiated by Queen Latifah. “This song is not a love song for some of us, but for all of us,” Latifah told the audience at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles.

After the couples had exchanged rings, Madonna took to the stage as Same Love segued into her own song Open Your Heart. She took the lead on a slowed-down version of her classic 1987 hit before trading vocals with singer Mary Lambert on a few bars of Same Love.

“I mean, I wouldn’t do any old song with any old artist,” Madonna told Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet beforehand. “But history is going to be made tonight.”

Madonna en Queen Latifah trouwen homostellen

Madonna heeft tijdens de Grammy Awards een optreden gegeven met Macklemore & Ryan Lewis en Mary Lambert. Het gezelschap bracht het nummer Same Love, over het homohuwelijk, ten gehore. Queen Latifah verbond tijdens het optreden 33 homostellen in de echt. Madonna sloot de ceremonie af met een opvoering van haar hit Open Your Heart.

Het publiek in het Staples Center in Los Angeles reageerde met luid gejuich en een staande ovatie op het optreden, schrijft het Amerikaanse tijdschrift Us Weekly. Veel aanwezigen konden hun tranen niet onder bedwang houden, onder wie countryzanger Keith Urban.

Eerder op de avond vond er al een memorabel optreden plaats van ex-Beatles Paul McCartney en Ringo Starr. Ze stonden voor het eerst sinds 2009 weer samen op het podium. Het is dit jaar vijftig jaar geleden dat de Beatles in New York aankwamen.

Madonna, Son David Wear Matching Tuxedos at Grammys 2014 Red Carpet: Picture

For the Grammys 2014 red carpet walk, Madonna was upstaged . . . by her little boy David! The pop legend, 55, brought her son David Banda, 8, as her date on the red carpet outside L.A.’s Staples Center. The duo opted for matching, black-and-white tuxedos by Ralph Lauren and top hats. (Nursing a recent injury, the Material Girl accessorized with a cane.) Although the “Celebration” diva is is opinionated on matters of fashion, little David was the evening’s stylist.

“Did you pick this out?” E! News’ Ryan Seacrest asked. “Yes I did!” the cutie replied.

“For this look, i followed his lead,” Madonna explained. “He dressed me tonight. I wanted to dress like him.” The seven-time Grammy winner was, however, rocking one thing David wasn’t: grills. “I’m grilling,” she said, adding that she sports the teeth accessories “when it matches my outfit. I have learned to eat with my grill!”

Chirped little David (whose siblings are Mercy James, 8, Rocco, 14, and Lourdes, 17): “She said she’s getting me a grill!”

Madonna was less direct when asked about her performance of “Same Love” with Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, which will reportedly also feature Queen Latifah officiating 34 weddings live onstage during the marriage equality anthem.

“I wouldn’t do any old song with any artist but history will be made,” was all Madonna would say on the subject.

Grammys 2014: Madonna to wear Ralph Lauren tuxedo

It’s been a banner season for Ralph Lauren on the red carpet.

First he dressed fashion It girl Lupita Nyong’o at the Golden Globes and now he has a lock on Madonna for the Grammys.

Madonna will be wearing look 49 from the spring 2014 Ralph Lauren collection (above, left), a black cady double-breasted tuxedo jacket, matching wool pants and a white cotton shirt.

And ratcheting up the adorable factor, she will be joined at the ceremony by a mini-me. Her son David will be wearing a Ralph Lauren Boys tuxedo. 

Of course, Madonna has never met a tuxedo she didn’t love. She’s been wearing the gender-bending look since her “Vogue”-ing days. 

And back in June, the queen of pop made headlines when she attended a screening of her film, “Madonna: The MDNA Tour” in New York, wearing a Tom Ford tuxedo, top hat and tails, and channeling Marlene Dietrich.,0,5131018.story#ixzz2rY7Qsfri

Queen Latifah to Officiate 34 Weddings During Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Madonna’s “Same Love” at Grammys

The 2014 Grammys will be a special night, not just for the honored nominees, but also for the 34 couples who will be getting married live on stage at the awards ceremony.

As exclusively reported by Us Weekly, iconic pop star Madonna will be joining rappers Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and featured singer Mary Lambert on stage for a special duet of the duo’s marriage-equality anthem “Same Love.”

But that’s not the only momentous element of the performance. While the group is performing, The New York Times reports that Queen Latifah will officiate 34 on-air weddings, including the wedding of Ryan Lewis’ sister Laura and her boyfriend Alex. (Two sources also confirm this to Us Weekly.)
The Times reported that the featured couples will be “gay, straight, old, young, of many races and colors,” and revealed that they were left in the dark for months about where the special services would be taking place. Per their confidentiality agreements, the couples weren’t even allowed to tell their families.

DJ and producer Ryan Lewis talked with The New York Times about the Grammys, describing them as, “A night that is already tremendous for me, for the music, but to have my sister get married and my family there watching it — that makes it a whole other level of amazing.”

Producers for the Grammys promise this isn’t a simple publicity stunt.

“We don’t need to stoop to the level of trying to find gimmicks and sensationalistic approaches to what we do,” said Neil Portnow, the president of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are nominated for seven Grammys, including Best New Artist.
