Emilia Clarke’s Game Of Thrones impressive costume has been much replicated by fans.
But when Madonna decided to dress up as her character Daenerys Targaryen, she wanted the real deal.
The pop star contacted HBO, and asked to borrow Emilia’s fantastic black leather corset and long dress.
‘I thought I was dreaming,’ she told Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show.
And she explained: ‘I got an email [from HBO’s publicity department] asking “Madonna wants to borrow the costume is that ok?”
‘I was like ‘I must be dreaming.’

Madonna recently donned the Daenerys Targaryen look from “Game of Thrones” to celebrate Purim, posting the results on Instagram over the weekend, and the Mother of Dragons, or rather, the woman who plays her – Emilia Clarke – was impressed.
“Oh my goodness. It’s insane. I thought I was asleep, I thought I was dreaming,” Emilia told Access Hollywood at Tuesday night’s “Game of Thrones” premiere at Lincoln Center in New York City of seeing Madonna dressed as her character.
“It’s a huge moment,” Emilia added. “And, damn! She looks good.”
For Gwendoline Christie, who plays Brienne of Tarth, a character that challenges female stereotypes in HBO’s fantasy drama, it was a big deal.
“I got really, really excited. Madonna’s always been a favorite of mine. I love her strength and her transformative nature and the idea that she might be dressing up as a brilliant character in the TV show I’m in is pretty exciting,” Gwen told Access.
Eurosong-jurylid Jef Martens heeft het verzoek om nummers te schrijven voor Madonna naast zich neergelegd. Hij heeft momenteel geen tijd, omdat hij een nummer met popzanger Mika moet afwerken.
Het zal in menig woonkamer de voorbije weken gevraagd zijn: wie is die man, naast Bart Peeters, Ozark Henry en Ruslana? Het vierde jurylid van Eurosong, Jef Martens, is de helft van het duo Lazy Jay en wordt door de grootste artiesten ter wereld gevraagd om songs voor hen te schrijven.
En zo kreeg Martens onlangs de vraag om nummers te schrijven voor Madonna. “Ik werk regelmatig met Interscope, haar platenlabel”, legt hij uit in De Standaard. “Vandaar dat ik werd gepolst. Maar bij zo’n oefening worden verschillende schrijvers in Los Angeles in studio’s samengebracht; je hebt geen garanties over de bestemming van de songs en weet niet of je met Madonna zult werken.”
En dus bedankte Martens, want hij heeft concrete projecten lopen met Mika en Natasha Bedingfield. “Mika en ik hadden vorig jaar een song voor iemand anders geschreven, maar hij wil hem liever zelf op zijn volgende plaat zetten. Waarschijnlijk werken we hem begin april samen af.”
Eurosong-jury member Jef Martens declined the request to write songs for Madonna. Due to his work with Mika at the moment, he does not have the time.
Martens was sent the request to write songs for Madonna. “I work regularly with Interscope, her record label”, he explains to De Standaard. “That is why I was asked. But with a project such as that, multiple writers are brought together in studio’s in Los Angeles; there are no guarantees of the destination of the songs and whether or not you will be working with Madonna or not.”
That is why Martens declined, he has current projects with Mika and Natasha Bedingfield.
Mick Jagger ‘Devastated’ Over L’Wren Scott’s Death: Madonna, Olivia Wilde, Bianca Jagger And More Celebrities React
Madonna, who was found of wearing Scott’s fashion designs, told the Associated Press she was devastated to learn of the former model’s death. “This is a horrible and tragic loss,” said Madonna. “I’m so upset. I loved L’Wren’s work and she was always so generous with me.”
From an article by International Business Times
MIA has asked Madonna for financial help after the NFL demanded she pay them $16.6m (£9.1m) in compensation for showing her middle finger during the 2012 Super Bowl half-time show.
It has been confirmed that the NFL have stepped up their legal action against MIA with the American Arbitration Association on Friday (March 14). The Hollywood Reporter states that the NFL are demanding $15.1m in “restitution” on top of the $1.5m (£900,000) they were already chasing for breach of contract.
The NFL claims that the additional $15m covers “the alleged value of public exposure she received by appearing for an approximately two minute segment during Madonna’s performance,” stating that, “The figure is based on what advertisers would have paid for ads during this time.”
In response, MIA’s spokesperson has said that the claim, “lacks any basis in law, fact, or logic.” Adding that the “continued pursuit of this proceeding is transparently an exercise by the NFL intended solely to bully and make an example of Respondents for daring to challenge NFL.”
The statement also refers to various other explicit moments from previous Super Bowl performances as well as a recent fine issued to a player found to have used racially aggressive language on the field.
Tweeting about the story earlier today (March 17), MIA sent a message to Madonna which reads: “ummm ….. can i borrow 16 million ?”
Remember the good old days of queuing for Madonna concert tickets? Things have changed drastically in the past few years.
In the ‘good ol’ days’ spending a night outside in front of the postoffice was a regular thing to do, as you knew if you were first in line, you had the best chance to get the best seats in the house.
The craziest ticket sale I have ever experienced was for the Re-Invention Tour in 2004 in Arnhem. After spending a night outside and getting the first tickets, we went home without knowing a second date would be added. When we found out we rushed back but it was sold out. Thankfully we got to take tickets that weren’t picked up, however when the lady arrived and she found out we had her tickets she slapped my boyfriend.
The pictures below were taken for the Confessions Tour ticket sales. We spent an entire night in front of a postoffice in Purmerend, a man that was drunk kept on harassing us throughout the night so we had the call the police.
Thankfully in the morning we got our tickets, and this time we waited for the second date announcement. After getting our tickets we went to visit the record fair in Utrecht, needless to say we were extremely tired!
Madonna has uploaded a photo of her wearing a costume of Daenerys Targaryen, the Mother of Dragons from popular fantasy series “Game of Thrones”. The 55-year-old singer wore the costume to celebrate Jewish holiday Purim. “Happy Purim!!!!! All Hail All Queens! ##certainty,” she wrote on Saturday, March 15.
In the snap, Madonna can be seen sporting a platinum blond wig and small dragon figurines on her shoulders. She also wears some bangles to channel the character from HBO series, which is played by Emilia Clarke.
Purim is a day to commemorate Jewish community’s escape from destruction during the ancient Persian Empire. Madonna was raised a Roman Catholic, but she converted into Kabbalah in the 1990s. Her Hebrew name is Esther.
The Material Girl was spotted at the Kabbalah Centre in New York on Saturday. She wore all-black outfit, a beanie and a scarf as she exited a car. The singer had no make-up on during the outing.
A few days ago, Madonna shared a photo of her seductively licking a glass shower door. The photo shows her wearing make up and a beautiful head piece. “Still cleaning house! A Woman’s work is never done! I should have worn a wife beater. But i like getting dressed up! #bowdownb****es,” she said of the house chore.
