Madonna Hits The Studio With Natalia Kills, Martin Kierszenbaum

Madonna’s in the studio with Natalia Kills and Martin Kierszenbaum.

The Queen of Pop shared an image on Instagram late in the evening on Wednesday (April 9) with the caption “Working the midnight shift with Natalia Kills. 2 girls on a couch… don’t it taste like Holy Water? #artforfreedom #rebelheart #revolutionoflove”

In the photo, Madonna is sitting with pop singer/songwriter Kills, in front of two microphones. In the foreground is Martin Kierszenbaum, the founder and chairman of Cherrytree Records (Kills’ label) and senior executive of A&R for Interscope Records.

Among his many credits, Kierszenbaum A&R’d Lady Gaga’s debut album “The Fame,” and co-wrote and produced four of the songs on the set. He also did A&R for Gaga’s “The Fame Monster” EP.

 Madonna’s next studio album will be released on Interscope Records.

Her collaboration with Kills comes shortly after Madonna confirmed that she had worked with DJ/producer Avicii in March. On March 12, she posted a photo of her and the EDM superstar to Instagram, saying: “The End of a long week with Viking Leader AKA DJ Virgo AKA Avicii! So many great songs! #icantwait #revolution”

Back in February, Madonna said that “plans” were “in the works already” for a new album. That followed a comment by her manager, Guy Oseary, in January, where he said that Madonna was “eager to get started” on her next album.

Madonna’s forthcoming set will be the follow-up to 2012’s “MDNA.” It debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart and has sold 536,000 copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Madonna boos op makers Everybody Dance Now

Madonna is niet te spreken over de nep-Madonna die vorige week was te zien in Everybody Dance Now. Omdat een oud-danser van de Amerikaanse zangeres met zijn dansgroep meedeed, zetten de makers als grap een lookalike in het publiek. Madonna kon echter niet lachen om de actie.

Danser Steve Nestar stuurde beelden van de Everybody Dance Now-aflevering op naar de zangeres. “Ze heeft me geantwoord. Ze vond de show erg leuk, maar ze vond niet leuk wat ze in de show deden”, zei hij vrijdagavond in RTL Boulevard.

“Die namaak-Madonna vond ze niet gepast”, gaat de danser verder. “Ze zei: weten mensen wel hoe ik eruit zie? Ben ik zo lelijk? Daar kwam het eigenlijk op neer.”

Madonna Photo Shoot Robbed of $2,500 Bra, Police and Designer Say

CHELSEA — Thousands of dollars in pricey lingerie were stolen from a racy Madonna photo shoot last month at the Highline Stages, according to the NYPD and a designer’s representative.

As the Queen of Pop posed in sexy underwear for L’uomo Vogue, the magazine’s Italian version for men, staff for designer Deborah Marquit stowed a $2,545 Italian lace bra, $345 thong and $515 brief under a chair about 4 p.m. March 20, they told police.

Hours later, as the shoot at 440 W. 15th St. wrapped up just after midnight, a staffer noticed the bag had disappeared, police said.

“It was a Madonna shoot for L’uomo Mag and It would be ideal is if [sic] someone found the bag of lingerie,” a spokesperson for the company wrote in an email. “Deborah would love to get her collection pieces returned.”

Madonna posted photos from the shoot to her Instagram account, identifying some of the clothes as Armani.

“Working Armani For. L’Uomo Vogue! #artforfreedom,” she wrote.

Marquit’s high-priced bras have appeared in magazines like Cosmopolitan and Vogue and have been worn by celebrities including Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez and Hilary Swank, according to the company’s website.

“I am at a loss and wish the pieces would be found,” Maquit wrote in an email. “I am sure there is no one from the shoot that was involved, since nothing like this has ever happened before. There are alot of people on shoots and maybe whoever found them will return them.”

A spokeswoman for Madonna did not respond to a request for comment.

Madonna writes for BuzzFeed, asks readers to submit art for her review

Pop music chameleon Madonna has unveiled her latest persona: listicler.

The music superstar made her debut as a BuzzFeed contributor this morning, when her post, ”11 Freedom Fighters Who Have Inspired Me,” went live. Madonna’s heroes are artists and revolutionaries, icons, and legends-in-the-making — from John Lennon to Malala Yousafzai, the people who inspire her have made an everlasting impact on the way we view the world.

But Madge isn’t simply writing tributes for you to read between taking the quizzes “How Bad Are Your Life Choices?” and “Which SpongeBob Character Are You?”. Her listicle was soon followed by another post, titled: Are You With Me?.

It’s an open letter explaining the real reason why Madonna joined BuzzFeed — to promote her website ArtForFreedom.com and solicit readers for submissions. The singer founded ArtForFreedom in September 2013 “to give artists everywhere a platform to define what freedom means to them and to allow them to express their right for freedom of expression,” she writes.

Madonna then asks readers for their own “artistic expression of freedom” — everything from photos to videos to poetry. She’ll be checking out entries on April 14 at 6 p.m. and offering feedback. “An artist has the responsibility to not only reflect society, but to shape it,” says the pop star who encouraged every woman to “Express Yourself” — cone bras optional.

Submissions can be entered here.
