Madonna Ciccone gossip, latest news, photos, and video.
In spite of the rumoured rowing and the knock down dirty fights behind closed doors, in spite of her ego at the expense of his ego, and the adoption and the adoption publicity, through thick and thin and injury, Madge and Guy are making it work…still together after all the ups and downs, now going on 7 years of marriage.

Am en route to Cannes, on assignment for eTalk covering the Cannes Film Festival! Needless to say, if there’s any year to come, this would be it: Brad, Angelina, George and the Oceans cast, Jude, Natalie…and many, many more, including those who make the trip just because, just because it’s the place to be. Will have smutty radar cranked, keep you posted…promise.
Have to say… was actually impressed with how Lindsay Lohan handled the heat last week – the worst week to be out on Georgia Rule promo, coinciding with the News of the World exposé on her alleged drug use. Don’t get me wrong - girl is still high off her tree but she didn’t hide and she can actually put a sentence together during an interview…which is the difference between the Lilo and the Hollywood Ebola.
Notice the Media Strategy difference? That they haven’t been sending Prisoner Paris (at press time anyway) out for damage control speaking opportunities? And why not? Because this heiress clearly can’t think as quickly as she can get down on her knees.
Will still be blogging full time while I’m away, can’t wrap my head around time difference so check back often for new posts.
Yours in gossip,
PS. Font all wonky - can"t figure out why. Maybe Europe makes font wonky? Will try to fix...sorry!
PPS. A big gay flick of the wrist salute to Scott and Claudio – birthdays, parties, Madonna photos … love, love, love.
PPS. Heartfelt thanks to Todd Babiak of the Edmonton Journal for the lovely piece in Sunday’s paper. Click here for his take on the "the monster that is the global celebrity market".
Justin Timberlake in Scotland trying to get out of a bunker. Not an easy shot with an uphill lie like that but it coulda been worse. It coulda been right up against that lip, which is what happened to me on Tuesday when I took a f&cking 9 on a par 5, using 3 strokes to get out of a ridiculous sand trap, ultimately screwing up what was looking like a career best round.

Madonna, Guy, Lola, and Rocco on their bikes in London the other day, spending some quality family time in the sun. Another couple not breaking up in spite of tabloid insistence that these two are rowing every day, are on the verge of a split. Needless to say, a split is not imminent. After all, what’s an adoption compared to a few bruises? As for Madonna’s collaboration with Justin Timberlake – rumour has it she was impressed and now trying to order him into some kind of one off performance together. Full Story
Pipsqueak with the enormous ego, who likens himself the saviour of all music and God’s gift to harmony – finally something has come out of his mouth that isn’t sanctimoniously obnoxious. The bad news: Pip is not working with Britney… yet. But as we all know, he wrote a few tracks for Madonna and he is also producing songs for a variety of other musicians from a variety of other musical genres. Full Story
Shameless self promotion? Yes. Undeniably so. But in the good days, pre-KFed, back when Britney was fit and successful and perceived as a young savvy media manipulator and crowned the future heir of Madonna, Britney used her body and showed off her body… repeatedly… to illustrate her point.

Brooklyn Beckham, that is. Madonna is in Malawi making the world a better place – fantastic. But Check out mom and Lola in matching fatigues – total gorgessity, non? Man I feel old. She’s 10 already – a decade of Madonna the Mother. In another decade, she’ll be dating… so can we play Dating Celebrity Babies? I say Lourdes and Brooklyn. Full Story
She’s headed back to Malawi – official reason is because she is “overseeing the building of a children"s health care center” but gossip is already swirling about her intentions to adopt another child. This time a 3 year old girl called Grace. Funny that. Isn’t the newly christened Pax Thien Jolie, brother of Maddox, Zahara, and the Chosen One, also 3? Like last time, her rep is vehemently denying the reports. Full Story
Let’s recap, shall we? Little Pip performed at the Grammys this year. The ratings for the show were solid. Which, really, when you think about it, is the sole purpose for inviting acts that can draw a crowd and make the event as stellar as it can be. But still…he said he felt used. He said he regretted the deal. Full Story
