Sean Penn is suing Lee Daniels for $10 million alleging that Daniels has defamed him. Here’s a quick background: To promote Empire, Daniels was interviewed recently in The Hollywood Reporter and when asked about Terrence Howard being, um, Terrence Howard, and his history of abusing women, Daniels’s made a point about how Terrence is being unfairly vilified for it when so many high profile white actors have the same sh-t on their resumés: “(Terrence) ain’t done nothing different than Marlon Brando or Sean Penn, and all of a sudden he’s some f*ckin’ demon. Full Story

Madonna’s Rebel Heart tour kicked off in Montreal last night. She’ll perform there again tonight. Are you planning on going when she stops by where you are? I’m seeing her the first week of October here in Toronto, right after Taylor Swift. I’m going with my friend Iain. He’s pretty much a Madonna academic – obsessed but also objective. Full Story

There have been so many pop stars that have quickly been crowned, “The Next Madonna.” Britney, Christina (in her Dirrty phase), Lady Gaga, Rihanna, and now, Miley. Madonna had the white wedding dress at MTV, Miley had the foam finger. Madonna had the gondola in Venice, Miley has the Wrecking Ball. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

It was Madonna’s 57th birthday yesterday. There was a party. She posted some photos on Instagram, none of which are as interesting as the photo she posted a few days earlier, of Sean Penn, who turns 55 today.  Read Full Intro

While Chris Evans spent the weekend repping Marvel at Disney’s D23, his Civil War adversary, Robert Downey Jr, was where he’s been for most of the summer – in the Hamptons, with his family, and one of his closest friends, Gwyneth Paltrow. As I mentioned last week Full Story

Bitch Iโ€™m Madonna, the remix

Madonna released a new video for Bitch I’m Madonna, the remix. More like redo. This is what she should have done in the first place, instead of what we got the first time around, when the launch was f-cked up by Tidal and all we ended up seeing were people making cameos…without actually having to be in the same room as her. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Madonna’s new video, featuring Beyonce and Katy Perry and Minaj and Miley was promised to us yesterday. SHE was the one who promised it. On Instagram last week – her words, not mine. Click here to see.

Yesterday she released the poster. It felt like Taylor Swift. OK but whatever. Beyonce alone can take 25 of #SwiftSquad members, no problem. What happened? I waited. I walked all over DC, eating up data on my phone, waiting. I waited all the way from DC to New York, eating up more data on my phone. Nothing.

And what’s even more embarrassing is that this is the SECOND TIME. You remember what happened with the Ghosttown video in April? How it was supposed to drop on Meerkat and the app couldn’t handle it? So yesterday didn’t happen and now she’s saying that Bitch I’m Madonna will be available Wednesday morning. Well I’ve waited now until 9:30amET because I was hoping to open with it and still, I don’t see it.

Inefficiency has never been Madonna’s problem. Why is it so often her problem now? She makes it worse with messages like this:

Video coming soon! Just tryin to make it perfect for all of you โค๏ธ๐ŸŒนโค๏ธ๐ŸŒนโค๏ธ๐ŸŒนโค๏ธ๐ŸŒนโค๏ธ๐Ÿ˜„โค๏ธ๐Ÿ˜“โค๏ธ๐Ÿ˜ we are hard werking bitches! #bitchimmadonna

This is how it works for someone at the beginning of their career, non? In any business. You open a restaurant and in the early days, maybe the kitchen has timing problems, maybe the restocking schedule is still being figured out and you can’t always offer what’s on the menu. And you apologise to your customers – sorry! we’re new! we are learning, please be patient with us.

But Madonna is not/should not be amateur hour. And lately, all we’ve seen from her is amateur hour. As a fan for 3 decades now, I’m telling you, there’s no joy in this observation. And on top of all that? When the video does – finally – come out, what might save her will be the appearance and performance of OTHER artists: Beysus, Katy, Miley…

That’s not the Madonna I signed up for.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

 

Bitch Iโ€™m Madonna: the video

Let me just tell you, again, how it was when I was growing up, OK? Old people do this. We have to mansplain to the new generation about the superiority of our world. Back then, a Madonna video and/or performance was a major event. It was tight. It was bold. It was always imitated. Over and over again it was imitated from basements to school gymnasiums to stages. Full Story
