Madonna's Instagram: 'Mmmm something's coming over me'
Happy 10th Anniversary to the Re-Invention Tour

V Magazine: Cover #1 Revealed

In a worldwide exclusive, V Magazine and Steven Klein come together to capture Madonna and Katy Perry in their element, under the sartorial eye of Arianne Phillips. Did you know that these two, the most famous acts on the planet, are also fast friends? Here are a few of their choice quotes from the accompanying story, the entirety of which will appear on newsstands this Memorial Day.

KATY PERRY: I was sore in my upper body and in my butt area from all that squatting.
MADONNA: It’s good to be sore in your butt. My neck is sore from that wonderful moment when I was sucking on your heel.

M: I would always say, Dad, I’m an artist, I have to express myself. You don’t understand. I think he’s finally come to terms with it. It’s only taken 30 years. He’s like, Do you have to simulate masturbation on the bed? Do you have to? Yes, Dad, I do.
KP: I haven’t gone that far yet, but maybe under your great mentorship I might reach that point.

M: A couple of weeks before my production rehearsals I look and feel like a truck ran me over.
KP: [laughs] Oh, I look like that now.

KP: Im so OCD that I want those letters in alphabetical order. C-D-O would be my preference.

@Lulu--yes--actually I remember an interview with M a few years ago talking about a new artist she loved called Katy Perry--in particular a song called 'youre so gay'--watch this space!! ;) xx


Steven Klein's once innovative photography is now as predictable and samey as Madonna herself is.


@Terry: funnily enough, I have ALWAYS thought that Katy Perry looks like a cartoon character when on stage and caked with make-up. And that is not a compliment!

@tracy: a very strong rumour has it that even as far back as "I Kissed A Girl", Madonna was desperate to 'get in' with Katy Perry as she seemed to be getting good songs written for her (hello, the great Cathy Dennis!)!

@jeffrey: Agree totally. This is just like Hard Candy/Sticky and Sweet revisited, with a bit of Lady Gaga's "Telephone" video thrown in for good measure! Reductive, moi? ;-)


As a hardcore Madonna fan I must say this is getting to be a bore. For someone who has stated that she hates to repeat herself this is all regurgitated hard candy/sticky sweet looks. To be repeating herself after only 6 years is a total yawn. What happened to the cutting edge lead not follow Madonna that took the world by storm with a creative force unparalleled?!? I truly hope she has found a new creative spark for the new album. I will definitely buy the new album and I am sure I will enjoy it as I have all Madonna albums before it, but my concern is all this instagram, social media crap is becoming a wizard of oz moment. Revealing the person behind the curtain, and losing the illusion.


Exactly, Terry. They both look like mannequins.


i LOVE these pictures--gorgeous & erotic!!!such beautiful creatures--I don't even mind the photo shopping--adds to its edge!! I wouldn't mind these two working together musically ;) xx


SO very HOT.


I still love her and will but that photoshopping (not only M's) really hurts my eyes. They don't look like humans, more like cartoon characters.
