Madonna at the Grammys: ‘I wear grills because it pisses people off’

Madonna has opened up about her unusual choice of mouth-wear at the Grammys.

The ‘Hung Up’ megastar walked the red carpet with her son David in matching Ralph Lauren suits, and wore her now-commonplace golden grills.

Speaking to E!’s Ryan Seacrest, she said: “Yeah, I’m grillin’. It pisses everybody off when I wear my grill, so that’s why I wear it. I wear it when I don’t have to eat. Actually, I’ve learned to eat with my grill in.”

8-year-old David told Seacrest: “She said she’d get me a grill for this birthday,” to which the singer responded: “We haven’t had the time, you’d have to go to the dentist and get moulds.”

David also told Seacrest that he picked out their suits and, when asked if his adoptive mother follows his lead, he quickly replied: “Yeah, very well.”

Madonna conceded: “He wanted me to dress like him, so I obeyed him.”

Madonna took to the Grammys stage with Macklemore, Ryan Lewis and Mary Lambert to perform a mash-up of ‘Same Love’ and ‘Open Your Heart’. The performance also featured Queen Latifah performing a mass wedding ceremony for 34 couples.

Speaking before the duet, Madonna said: “I wouldn’t do any old song with any old artist, but I feel like history is going to be made tonight. So I want to be part of that.”

Remember When: Material Girl Madonna has her moment on The Tube

You can count on one hand the number of international pop stars who haven’t played in the region.

North music fans have been lucky enough to see everyone from The Beatles to Led Zeppelin over the years.

I can only think of maybe Elvis, Abba and, possibly, Prince who never graced local stages.

But one other act who hasn’t set foot in the Toon is, of course, Madonna.

The closest she came was on this day 30 years ago – on a Friday teatime to be exact – when she appeared on the Tube, the groundbreaking music TV show produced here in the region by Tyne Tees.

Today, the 55-year-old multimillionaire is one of the biggest names in showbusiness, an icon of the MTV age, actress, author, producer and entrepreneur.

Back in 1984, Madonna Ciccone was an unknown American singer-dancer, desperate for fame and fortune.

The video slot, which appeared on The Tube, was filmed at Manchester’s famous Hacienda club.

The young New Yorker, backed by two dancers – her brother, Christopher, and Erica Bell – strutted and mimed her way through two songs.

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
