Tori Amos has Madonna's back

Tori Amos believes people want to 'shame' Madonna.

The star has been making music since the late 80s and her sound is recognisable thanks to her unique lyrics and impressive piano skills.

While she may not be in the same genre as popstar Madonna, they share an age bracket and icon status. And Tori has leapt to the 56-year-old's defence, following criticisms after Madonna fell at the Brit awards earlier this year while performing Living For Love.

'Madonna is an entertainer. There are very few people who could’ve gotten up off that floor. It wasn’t because of her that she fell, but it was because of her that the performance carried on. Some of the vilification comes from women as much as men,' Tori, 51, sighed to British newspaper The Guardian.

'She’s making choices and she’s able to do things physically that a lot of people 25 years younger can’t; she got up and refused to allow that to shame her. I think people want her to be shamed into a role that they find acceptable for her age. It makes me sad that we can’t embrace Madonna and say, 'Wow, this is an artist who’s expressing herself in a certain way.''

Tori has had her fair share of malfunctions on stage, falling off her piano stool many times in her 20s and even performing on her knees due to a mic stand not staying up. She believes it takes something special to carry on after a blip and that people should admire Madonna's agility, even if they don't agree with her 'sexuality'.

Madonna's rep denies star's play texting

Madonna's representative is dismissing reports the singer was not invited backstage at hip-hop stage show Hamilton because she was allegedly caught texting throughout the performance.

The pop superstar was in the audience for a performance of the musical in New York City on Saturday, when she was reportedly called out by star/writer Lin-Manuel Miranda as he hosted a charity auction at the end of the show.

'Tonight was the first time I asked stage management NOT to allow a celebrity (who was texting all through Act 2) backstage #noselfieforyou,' Miranda tweeted

The message was later deleted, but editors at the New York Daily News reported that Miranda was referring to Madonna.

'It's not true. She was invited backstage four different times. She texted post show when they were doing their fundraising pitch. Madonna had already made a generous donation.'

Madonna is given 'backstage ban' after tweeting during show

Madonna has been slapped with a backstage ban due to her lack of theatre etiquette, according to reports.

The Queen of Pop had attended the evening performance of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s acclaimed off-Broadway musical Hamilton, but was not invited to meet the cast afterwards because she kept using her phone during the show, reported Playbill.com.

Lin-Manuel tweeted a post, which was later deleted: 'Tonight was the first time I asked stage management NOT to allow a celebrity (who was texting all through Act 2) backstage. #noselfieforyou.'

A source told Playbill.com that the singer arrived late to the performance at The Public Theatre’s Newman Theatre, and was seen using her phone throughout the first and second acts.

The Emmy-winning actor is well-known for taking celebrities, including First Lady Michelle Obama, backstage for a post-show picture with the cast.

Madonna has not mentioned the snub or referred to the show on Twitter.

This isn’t the first time the Grammy-winning singer has been in trouble over her phone etiquette.

She was banned from Alamo Drafthouse cinemas in October 2013, after reports that she was texting during a New York Film Festival screening of 12 Years A Slave.

Madonna Deletes Margaret Thatcher Message

Madonna has deleted an image of Margaret Thatcher from her Instagram account after fans blasted her for praising the controversial former UK Prime Minister.

The Like A Virgin hitmaker posted a picture alongside one of the late politician's famous quotes - 'If you set out to be liked, you would be prepared to compromise on anything at any time, and you would achieve nothing' - and added the caption, 'Thank you Margaret Thatcher! #unapolgetic #rebelheart'.

After posting the image, the star faced a backlash from followers who slammed her for lauding Thatcher, who was infamous for her divisive policies, which prompted both praise and vitriol following her death in 2013.

Madonna did not comment on the controversy but removed the photo and later posted a racy image of herself in underwear surrounded by roses, alongside the caption, 'He sent me roses begging my forgiveness. I said I'd think about it. These guys....'

Earlier this year, the star was blasted for sharing images of iconic leaders including Martin Luther King, Jr. and Nelson Mandela with their faces bound with black wire to replicate the cover of her latest album, Rebel Heart.

Jamie Foxx: Madonna loves my little girl

Madonna thinks Jamie Foxx's daughter has 'good taste' after the youngster praised her Grammys performance.

In February, Annalise was Jamie's special guest to the annual music ceremony in Los Angeles, where she mingled with A-list stars including Katy Perry, Taylor Swift and Jay Z.

But it was pop legend Madonna the little girl was most excited about seeing face to face.

'What's crazy about this is, is that she wanted to meet Madonna more than anybody that night. Because she saw the performance and she said, 'Dad, I gotta meet Madonna because I love her performance,' and I said, 'She's right up there,'' Jamie recalled to Jimmy Kimmel. 'So she goes up to Madonna and says, 'I think your performance was the best,' and she [Madonna] says, 'Why do you like it?' 'Because you guys had the horns, so I think you were the best.' And you know what Madonna said? 'Good taste.''

The 56-year-old singer performed her track Living For Love, with scantily clad male backing dancers wearing sparkling silver masks and black horns on their heads.

Annalise has a photo gallery to treasure forever following that evening, and in each snap she pulled the same pose, where her arms are crossed and fingers pointed out.

'She's six... My daughter trademarked it, that's her thing. She's been doing it since she was like two and a half, three. She just came out the womb like, 'I'm here!'' he screeched, pulling the pose.

Jamie also touched upon his career as a musician and actor. He always dreamt of getting into music, but "just fell into the movies and just fell into winning an Oscar" he joked, referring to his best actor Academy Award for Ray.

Madonna: Hooray For Refusing To Turn Your Sexy Off At 56!

Madonna - you’re absolutely right to stay and act as hot to trot as ever in your 50s. Who says that when a woman hits fifty she should shut off her sex appeal? Kiss Drake, show off your thighs, and ignore your age!

Madonna, pay no attention to anyone who tells you to act your age! When they say that, what they’re really telling you is that you should stop being sexy because you’re 56. That’s ridiculous!

You’re a beautiful, brilliant, talented woman who’s in amazing shape. You can still dance your a** off and in fact, you can still dance circles around women and men half your age.

When you surprised Drake onstage with a kiss during your performance together at Coachella on April 12, the internet was abuzz and some commenters were aghast. This was partly because Drake himself was so surprised by your bold move, and his shock was misread as horror.

But Drake, 28, himself has set the record straight and Instagrammed on April 13: 'Don’t misinterpret my shock!! I got to make out with the queen Madonna and I feel 100 about that forever. Thank you @madonna.'

I bet he does feel that way. Madonna is a groundbreaking legend and Drake gets that. She broke open so many doors for female and male popstars with her trendsetting, uninhibited style, behavior and hit records, that every musical star respects her and is in total awe of her.
