Danser laat Rotterdam zien aan ‘vriendin’ Madonna

ROTTERDAM De Rotterdamse danser Timor Steffens (26) heeft zijn ‘vriendin’ Madonna de Maasstad laten zien. Woensdagavond nam hij de 55-jarige wereldberoemde popster mee uit eten naar het Japanse restaurant Ono, waarna het stel de nacht doorbracht in het nabijgelegen Hotel New York. Gisterochtend vroeg is Madonna weer met een privéjet vertrokken. Dat bevestigen bronnen aan het AD.

‘Ik herkende Madonna in eerste instantie niet’, vertelt medewerkster Wing Sai van restaurant Ono. ‘Ze had een grote jas aan en haar capuchon op. Toen ze aan tafel ging zitten en haar jas uitdeed, zag ik pas wie het was.’

Ze was samen met Timor, die jaren geleden meedeed aan talentenjacht So You Think You Can Dance. Hij was ook een van de uitverkorenen die zou dansen tijdens de laatste tour van Michael Jackson.

Wing Sai: ‘Ze hadden het heel gezellig samen, hielden elkaars hand vast.’ De twee zouden zelfs hebben gezoend aan de restauranttafel. De overige gasten hadden niets door, omdat de zangeres met haar rug naar hen toe zat. Madonna en Timor hebben ongeveer 2 uur in het restaurant doorgebracht.

Madonna spotted at restaurant in Rotterdam

Singer Madonna had a dinnerdate last Wednesday evening in the Japanese restaurant Ono on de Kop van Zuid in Rotterdam with the dancer Timor Steffens. They might be dating.

“it wasn’t until she laughed and I saw the gap in between her front teeth, that I knew for sure that she was Madonna”, an employee of Ono tells. She was ‘warned’ by her boss that evening that some famous people would show up, but didn’t have a clue who they were. “We reserved a table in the back, so that they would have some privacy”.

‘Good tip’
She says Madonna entered with a big coat and hoodie on, she only took them off when she sat down at the table. ‘She sat with her back to the wall, so it obstructed the view of other people seeing her. Nobody that had dinner had a clue she was there.”

She did not take any photographs of Madonna. ‘I did inform my colleagues, but of course we handle this discreetly.” She adds that Madonna ordered a lot of stuff off the menu, but didn’t finish it all. They left quite a large tip. “it is not of anyone’s business how much they left exactly.”

Rumors
The rumors that 26-yeard old Timor is dating 55-year old Madonna have been doing it’s rounds lately. Timor’s manager denies the rumors, and states that this is a friendship. The employee of Ono only wants to add to that, that “they had a great time….” Where Madonna stays in Rotterdam is unknown.

Madonna en Timor hebben romantische date

Vorige week bracht RTL Boulevard al het sappige nieuwtje dat Madonna het zou aanpappen met de 26-jarige Nederlandse danser Timor Steffens. Nu blijkt dat de twee samen een vorkje hebben geprikt in het Rotterdamse restaurant Ono. Dat bevestigt de eigenaar van de Japanner aan onze redactie.

“Ik herkende Madonna meteen”, laat de eigenaar weten. “Ze had gezelschap meegenomen. Eerst herkende ik Timor niet, maar later kwam hij me bekend voor”, vervolgt ze.

De tortelduifjes hadden niet op één van hun eigen namen gereserveerd, maar op schuilnaam. “Ze wilden geen bekijks en vroegen om een aparte tafel.” Niemand in de zaak herkende de zangeres, want zij zat met haar rug naar het publiek toe. Er zijn dan ook geen kiekjes van de twee genomen. “Het personeel mag bij ons niet met hun mobieltje de werkvloer op”, zegt de eigenaar resoluut.

Ook internationale websites als RadarOnline en Daily Mail schrijven onophoudelijk over de twee. De Queen of Pop en Timor werden voor het eerst samen in het Zwitserse Gstaad gespot. Madonna was met Oud en Nieuw te gast op het privéfeestje van ontwerper Rudolph Valentino. Daar maakte ze gretig van de gelegenheid gebruik om met haar nieuwste aanwinst uit te pakken. “De chemie tussen Madonna en Timor was behoorlijk intens”, laat één van de gasten weten aan entertainmentsite RadarOnline.

RadarOnline kwam na een beetje zoekwerk te weten dat Madonna en Timor al een paar maanden samenwerken aan een dansproject. Dat kan ook de bron van op het feestje bevestigen: “Het was wel duidelijk dat hij al erg close was met haar kinderen, vooral dan met Rocco. Ze hebben tijdens nieuwjaarsnacht samen heel wat afgelachen met elkaar.”

Of het sprookje tussen Madonna en Timor blijft duren, valt echter af te wachten: “Zelfs al is hij ‘maar’ een toyboy, hij zag er best zelfzeker uit. Hij heeft erg veel charisma. Ik ben er zeker van dat hij de druk aankan”, besluit de bron.

Madonna Names Katy Perry As January Guest Curator For Art For Freedom

Madonna has confirmed Katy Perry as the first guest curator for Art for Freedom in 2014 for the month of January. Katy will collaborate with Madonna to select daily submissions to be showcased on artforfreedom.com. Since launching in September 2013, Art for Freedom has received over 3,000 submissions globally via artforfreedom.com and its social media platforms.

“Art can change the world, but first it needs to be seen and heard, said Madonna. “Katy Perry and I are asking you to be that voice and show us how you define freedom in 2014. This will be a year of monumental changes for human rights, and we want you to be a part of that change. Let us hear from you.”

“I am so fortunate to have the freedom to express myself through music,” said Katy Perry. “Now I’m calling all of my incredibly creative KatyCats to use their talent to show Madonna and me how they express their freedom. I believe that 2014 can be a year of great social change. Together we can all stand up for Human Rights. Join the conversation, and let your art be your voice.”

As part of the Art For Freedom initiative, Katy Perry will work with Madonna to select one artist during the month of January whose creative expression demonstrates a unique view of the fight for human rights. Madonna will then award a $10,000 grant to a nonprofit organization of the winning artist’s choice. All projects must be focused on the values of Art For Freedom. David Blaine served as Art for Freedom’s guest curator for the month of December.

Launched in September 2013, Art For Freedom is a global digital initiative, led by Madonna in partnership with VICE Media, designed to fuel free speech – to respond, address and protest persecution and discrimination around the world. It is an online public art project encouraging people to express their personal meaning of freedom and revolution, in the form of video, music, poetry, and photography. Public submissions become part of the Art For Freedom website: contributors can join the project by uploading original artwork or tagging original posts #artforfreedom. The project was launched with the film secretprojectrevolution, co-directed by Madonna and Steven Klein.

Test Your Madonna Knowledge Against TheBacklot’s Louis Virtel On The YouTube Game Show “The Experts”

It feels bizarre to claim that I’m a Madonna expert when, really, casual fans of the 55-year-old Material Monarch can accidentally know everything about her too. Madonna’s history is pop history, so even if you’re a Radiohead fan or a sports junkie, you still might know that “Take A Bow” is Madonna’s biggest single and that Christopher Walken guest-stars in the “Bad Girl” video. (Though you might not know that Madonna’s cited inspiration for the “Bad Girl” video is Looking for Mr. GoodbarDiane!)

Nonetheless, I’m the anointed “Madonna expert” on this week’s episode of The Experts, a YouTube game show that tests savants on a specific area of expertise and pits them against other geeks. I’m competing with a Batman expert and a Melrose Place expert, so whether you’re a dead-eyed Madonna zealot or a low-key Daphne Zuniga fan, there’s something here for you. I won’t apologize for not knowing much about Evita. I won’t.

The game works in four rounds with an additional bonus round for the winner. Click through to see all the Virtel vogueing in action. And below, I ask a few tough Madonna questions I came up with on my own.
