Madonna Getting Ready in a Red Lip, Bold Liner and Hair Rollers Is as Glam as You’d Imagine

Come on, vogue! Madonna’s longtime hairstylist Andy Lecompte shared a photo of the star on Instagram on Wednesday, March 14, that confirmed what we already assumed to be true: the Material Girl is never not glam. Giving us her best vogue pose, Madge looked #flawless sporting a hair net and rollers as she got ready for the day. Needless to say, these were not your grandmothers curlers.

Rocking a bold red lip and radiant skin, the 'Like a Prayer' singer already looked ready for a night out in the pic Lecompte posted. Her striking eye makeup included super fluttery lashes, graphic liner and brushed-up brows. And while we never got a look at the finished look, Madonna makes the hair net and roller look so chic (and not all that more outrageous than some the avant-garde styles we are used to seeing her in), we wouldn’t have been surprised if she left the house just like that.

Also, if there was any doubt the 59-year-old songstress DOES. NOT. AGE. this photo puts it all to rest. Madge has long talked about being fastidious with her skincare regimen, and, as founder of MDNA SKIN, she worked with a team of Japanese experts to create masks, moisturizers and mists that utilize thermal mineral water, volcanic clay and olive oil from Italy for nourishing and anti-aging effects.

The mom of six has waxed poetic about the moisturizing and glow-inducing powers of the Rose Mist, which she admitted to liberally spritzing throughout the day. The tightly curated line of products also includes a high-tech Magnetic Flow tool that can be used like a magnet with the line’s Chrome Clay Mask to further remove impurities or with the Serum to improve penetration and effectiveness.

Basically, we’re onboard to try whatever she’s doing, and she may actually inspire us to dig out that roller set we haven’t thought to touch in years!



Madonna is making her comeback as a movie director

Madonna has announced that she’ll be making her directorial comeback at the helm of a new film about the life of Dutch National Ballet’s Michaela DePrince.

Taking Flight will tell the life story of the dancer who started life as a a war orphan in Sierra Leone before rising to worldwide acclaim as one of the most celebrated names in ballet. It will be an adaptation based on the memoir by Camilla Blackett.

'Michaela’s journey resonated with me deeply as both an artist and an activist who understands adversity,' said Madonna. 'We have a unique opportunity to shed light on Sierra Leone and let Michaela be the voice for all the orphaned children she grew up beside. I am honoured to bring her story to life.'

As well as acting in the likes of Evita, Dick Tracy, Swept Away, Shadows And Fog and Shanghai Surprise, Madonna’s directing credits include Filth And Wisdom, and 2011’s Wallis Simpson biopic W.E. Her work on the screen has been met with varying degrees of critical and commercial success.

As well as being among the rumours for headlining Glastonbury 2019, Madonna is also at work on her 14th album.

She has however, shot down rumours that a biopic of her own life was in the works at the hands of others.

'Nobody knows what I know and what I have seen,' she wrote on Twitter. 'Only I can tell my story. Anyone else who tries is a charlatan and a fool. Looking for instant gratification without doing the work. This is a disease in our society.'

Kim Kardashian Recalls Spying on Madonna as a Kid

Kim Kardashian was once next door neighbors with Madonna.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star shared a childhood memory with the singer at the MDNA x KKW Beauty event on Tuesday in Los Angeles.

During their conversation with Kandee Johnson, Kim revealed that while growing up in L.A. she lived next door to Madonna's manager.

'She, at a time period in her life, moved in with her manager who happened to be our next door neighbor growing up,' Kim said (via People). The KKW Beauty founder went on to share that she and sister Kourtney Kardashian would walk her next door neighbor's dog and when they went over to the house, they would see Madonna.

'We were shaking,' Kim recalled.

In addition to receiving some jewelry from Madonna, Kim and her BFF also got to watch Madonna film her music video 'Cherish' in 1989.

'My best friend Allison Azoff and I were at her parent's beach house and we went outside hearing music and saw you on the beach filming,' Kim shared with Madonna. 'We sat there all day and watched you and the team let us and we sat there on the little stairs and we were mesmerized and we just talk about it all the time.'

Kim, who would've been around nine at the time, called the experience the 'best memory ever.'

While at the event on Tuesday, Madonna shared a selfie with Kim on Instagram. 'Thank you @kimkardashian and all the folks @mdnaskin,' she captioned the post.

This comes just days after Kim and Madonna were spotted hanging out at the singer's 2018 Oscars after-party, where the duo posed for a photo with Cardi B.

Inside Madonna’s Oscars 2018 Afterparty With Kim Kardashian, Cardi B and More

Her Madgesty knows how to party! Madonna hosted a star-studded 2018 Oscars afterparty on Sunday, March 4, that drew in some of the biggest names in film, TV and music.

Kim Kardashian, Cardi B, Jennifer Lawrence, Margot Robbie, Timothée Chalamet were among the many stars who showed up to celebrate with the Queen of Pop, 59. 'Madonna was an amazing host,' a source tells Us Weekly exclusively. 'She worked the room all night and chatted with all the guests.'

The guest list also included Chelsea Handler, Leonardo DiCaprio, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Aniston, Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis, Sam Rockwell, Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone, Paris Jackson, Offset, Greta Gerwig, Amy Adams, Miley Cyrus, Liam Hemsworth, Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher.

'Madonna was dancing up a storm all night!' the source tells Us. 'She and Margot Robbie were on the floor at one point. She spent a lot of time with Kim and Cardi B. Madonna and Cardi B are talking about a collaboration on Madonna’s upcoming album.'

A second source adds, 'Cardi B performed ‘Bodak Yellow’ at the party. Madonna was in a great mood, bouncing around.'

Chalamet, 22, 'kept to himself' throughout much of the bash, according to the first source. The Call Me by Your Name actor, who was nominated for best actor at the Oscars, dated Madonna’s daughter Lourdes Leon in 2013 while they were students at Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts in New York City. It is unclear if Leon, 21, attended her mom’s party.

The 'Vogue' singer’s longtime manager Guy Oseary shared an epic picture on Instagram of Madonna, Kardashian, 37, and Cardi B, 25, posing in what appears to be a photo booth at the fête.


'Remember when....I was allowed to be a visionary?'

On Friday, Guy Oseary shared a post to commemorate the 20th anniversary of Madonna’s seminal album, ‘Ray Of Light’, noting:

'Love this woman. Love this album. One day she will hopefully do a tour for this album. It deserves to be performed from start to finish... respect to [music producer, William Orbit] for his brilliant work on this album... also two groundbreaking videos [‘Frozen’] by Chris Cunningham and [title track, ‘Ray Of Light’] by my dear friend [Jonas Akerlund]. Those were really fun times.'

Two days later, Madonna shared some comments on the post, which revealed things weren’t going so well behind the scenes of her latest musical offering.

Apparently comparing her current work with the making of ‘Ray Of Light’, she fumed: 'Remember when I made records with other artists from beginning to end and I was allowed to be a visionary and not have to go to song writing camps where no one can sit still for more than 15 minutes....'

She also joked to her manager: 'Can you help me now please!!'

Throughout her career, Madonna has notably worked with only one or two producers on each of her albums, such as Stuart Price on ‘Confessions On A Dance Floor’, William Orbit on ‘Ray Of Light’ and, more recently, ‘MDNA’ or Patrick Leonard on ‘Like A Prayer’.

Her most recent collection, ‘Rebel Heart’, featured a much more eclectic mix of collaborators, though the majority of tracks saw either Diplo or Avicii listed as co-producers, among several others.

Groundbreaking ceremony for new schools excites Madonna

United States pop star Madonna has expressed her excitement following the groundbreaking ceremony for four new schools she plans to build in the country.

Writing on her official Facebook account, Madonna said she is excited for the new four schools that will be built in Kasungu.

'So exciting! Ground breaking ceremony in Kasungu district in Malawi. Building four more schools,' Madonna said.

Madonna fell in love with the country as she has been helping in various sectors like health and education.

The US Pop Star is doing the job through Raising Malawi. Founded in 2006 by Madonna, Raising Malawi’s mission is to bring an end to the extreme poverty and hardship endured by Malawi’s orphans and vulnerable children.

Raising Malawi supports community-based organizations that provide these children and their caregivers with critical resources including food, clothing, shelter, education, medical care, and psychosocial support.

Raising Malawi has recently expanded upon its long-standing support to the paediatric surgery program at Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital by building the country’s first paediatric surgery and intensive care unit, The Mercy James Centre for Paediatric Surgery and Intensive Care.

Madonna has four children adopted from Malawi namely David Banda, Mercy James and the twins Estere and Stella.

What Gianni Versace's Death Tells Us About Madonna's 'Ray Of Light' Renaissance

'Traveling, traveling / In the arms of unconsciousness,' Madonna cooed on the Björk-assisted single 'Bedtime Story,' released in 1995. Overexposed and castigated after the ruckus surrounding 'Erotica' and the carnal coffee-table book Sex, she’d forged a reverie about disconnecting from reality. 'Today is the last day that I’m using words / They’ve gone out, lost their meaning.'

But by 1998, Madonna had awoken again. On 'Sky Fits Heaven,' the seventh track from the enlightened electro-rock masterpiece 'Ray of Light,' she repeated a familiar phrase - except here it ended on an upbeat: 'Traveling, traveling / Watching the signs as I go.' This time, pop music’s doyenne of reinvention was anything but unconscious.

Her footpath from the 'Bedtime Story' era to 'Ray of Light,' which turns 20 on Feb. 22, places Madonna at the nexus of celebrity culture circa 1997 (when she spent five months writing and recording the album) and early 1998 (when she released and promoted the album, which went on to win three Grammys and six MTV Video Music Awards). Nearing 40 and competing with a fresh generation of A&R-packaged teenyboppers, Madonna had risked aging out of mainstream stardom, one of the many sectors of society that isn’t kind to mature women. Instead, the ambient fizzes and mystical flurries on 'Ray of Light' formed a cutting-edge benediction that rehabilitated Madonna’s image - a coup few legacy acts could hope for today. She was a new mother, animated by Kabbalah and Ashtanga yoga, but uninterested in maternity leave.

Madonna’s late ’90s eminence can be further distilled through one morsel about the creation of 'Ray of Light,' her seventh studio disc: On July 15, 1997, the day she recorded the gritty meditation 'Swim,' Donatella Versace called Madonna to report that her brother Gianni had been shot outside his Miami mansion.

William Orbit, the English producer who helped shape 'Ray of Light,' has related this anecdote at least twice. The first time was in 1998, during an interview with Music Week.

'The day she [recorded ‘Swim’] she got a call on the way to the studio that her next-door neighbor Versace had been murdered,' he said. 'Lyrically it was written before that, but it is topical.'

Madonna: 'My son is Malawi's future president'

Pop star Madonna has called her son, David Banda, 'the future president of Malawi' in a tweet praising the 12-year-old adopted from that country.

The US singer has six children, four of whom she adopted from Malawi.

Madonna has reportedly had a fractious relationship with authorities from the south-east African nation.

In 2013, Malawi accused Madonna of 'bullying state officials' , exaggerating her contribution to the country and demanding VIP treatment.

Madonna's manager accused Malawi's government of having a "grudge" against the singer's charity, Raising Malawi, which she founded in 2006, the same year she adopted David.

David Banda is the oldest of four adopted children.

His adoption raised a strong public reaction as Malawian law required would-be parents to live in the country for one year before adopting. This requirement was waived for the pop star, who told Oprah Winfrey at the time that there were no written adoption laws that regulated foreign adoption.

In 2009, the country's high court rejected Madonna's application to adopt a girl, on the same grounds she had not lived in the African nation for the now required 18 months.

Serayah McNeill Is the New Face of Madonna's Material Girl Spring 2018 Campaign

When Serayah McNeill isn’t singing and acting on the hit show Empire, she makes time for a little modeling. The 22-year-old actress just became the face of the spring Material Girl ad campaign and she’s showing us that being a material girl is so much more than fancy clothes. “I’m excited to be the face of Material Girl because of everything she stands for,” said Serayah in a press release announcing the partnership. 'A Material Girl is edgy, fierce and owns who she is, and she’s guaranteed to look cool in anything and everything she puts on.'

The brand, which was launched by Madonna and her daughter, Lourdes Leon, in 2010, is using its spring collection to embrace female empowerment through bold colors, floral designs, and edgy silhouettes. Following in the footsteps of Rita Ora, Sofia Richie, and Zendaya, all of whom have starred in campaigns for the brand in the past, McNeill brings the designs to life as she adds her own energy and individuality to each piece. From lace-up track pants to a canary yellow skirt, McNeill isn’t afraid to experiment with her look as she gets ready for a night out at the iconic Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood.
