Dear Gossips,

Madonna is 60 years old today. I will probably spend it reading as many retrospectives as I can about her –her influences, her controversies, her provocations, her legacy. Because while Madonna is often maddening, she is undeniably an icon and there would be no pop culture, the way we know and understand it today, without her.  Read Full Intro

Nicki Minaj’s potential has been long evaluated and dissected. Since Nicki bulldozed her way into hip-hop’s popular consciousness with an exciting, spine-tingling and truly impeccable verse on “Monster,” there are many rap critics and fans who have been waiting for Nicki’s “MOTHERF-CKING MONSTA” to manifest itself in a full cohesive album worthy of that raw and unrelenting talent. Full Story

I read a lot of fiction novels, and lately I’ve noticed a pattern: dead husbands. Men who are brought down (physically, or socially and financially) by an underestimated woman. This isn’t new, of course. Some of the biggest books of the decade have centered around a woman who gains power - sometimes out of want, sometimes out of necessity - over a man who has wronged her. Full Story

A new era of Janet Jackson is coming. She’s been teasing it since May when she performed at the Billboard Music Awards and received the Icon Award. At the time, I wrote that I hoped the support we’ve been seeing for Janet via hashtags like #JusticeForJanet during the Super Bowl (#NeverForget) and the overwhelmingly positive response to her Billboards performance would extend into this album cycle. Full Story

It isn’t here yet. Yesterday, when Twitter was dragging Robert Kelly’s ass for releasing a 19-minute song called “I Admit,” he was trending. Many people, including me, thought that this was finally it, that R Kelly’s judgement day was upon us. Full Story

Last week, Joanna checked in with Julia Roberts on Instagram. It’s been about a month now since she joined. And since then she’s been showing us her work. Lately she’s been at work on a photo shoot – seen in Malibu in several outfits, including a rainbow skirt on Friday and then the next day leaning up against a vintage car in a pink blouse over jeans. Full Story

Taylor Swift made history this weekend as the first female artist to play three straight shows at MetLife Stadium and for Saturday’s performance, it rained the whole time. Which did not affect her energy, the production, or her lipstick. Never get in the way of Taylor when she’s setting a record. Full Story
