54 Most Anticipated Albums of 2018

Rolling Stone magazine published a list of the 54 most anticipated albums due in 2018:

MADONNA
Album: TBA
Release Date: TBA

Now living outside Lisbon, Portugal, the shape-shifting superstar hinted that she'd be returning to the pop world when she dropped by Live with Kelly and Ryan in December. '2017 was soccer mom in Portugal - 2018, I'm coming back, baby,' she told fellow guest Anderson Cooper, who asked about her tour plans. 'I'm traveling the world right now and listening to lots of different music,' she told Entertainment Weekly in September. 'I'm getting inspired by people and I'm just soaking things up right now. ... It's time for me to take a different approach and really get back down to the beauty and simplicity of music and lyrics and intimacy.'


Madonna: 'Finally some solidarity!'


All the Details on Madonna's Personalized 'MAMBO' Necklace

Madonnaโ€˜s children are with her wherever she goes, thanks to Lana Jewelry.

The pop superstar, 59, has shared multiple snaps of herself rocking a nameplate necklace that reads 'MAMBO': the nickname her kids Estere and Stella, 5, Mercy James, 11, and David Banda, 12, call her. (She is also mom to son Rocco John, 17, and Lourdes, 21.)

The brandโ€™s founder and designer Lana Bramlette spoke with PEOPLE about her new Get Personal collection that the Material Girlโ€™s necklace is from, as well as the inspiration behind Madonnaโ€™s particular piece that she made as part of the collectionโ€™s launch.

'My publicist coordinated with [Madonnaโ€™s] stylist, Eyob Yohannes, to design the piece,' says Bramlette, whose personalized nameplate necklace is also worn by Jennifer Lopez. 'I think she is excited to wear something meaningful, and I love watching her proudly rock it every day on social media.'

'I want to give my clients pieces to wear that make them feel good about themselves and that express their values. She also wears my diamond Crossary necklace daily,' Bramlette explains, adding with a laugh, 'I tell my clients, โ€˜If Madonna wears her necklace around the world and back daily without damaging it, you donโ€™t have an excuse for a repair.โ€™ '

Madonna-1

The Get Personal collection includes nameplates that read 'BONITA,' 'TAKEN' and 'HONEY,' but they are fully customizable for clients to specify their size, color and phrase of choice.

'I wanted to say thank you in a big way to the talented women who have supported the brand for years,' Bramlette tells PEOPLE of how her music-legend clients got the necklace. 'Madonna and Jennifer have always been muses for me.'

'My team has amazing relationships with their stylists who coordinated the design process and we customized pieces that meant something special to them,' she continues, 'whether it was a classic nameplate like the one Jennifer and I wear, or a unique and special phrase like MAMBO.'

Bramlette, who founded Lana Jewelry in 2002, shares that she had 'so much fun' bringing her newest collection to life - one she created to give clients 'a fun way to express themselves with diamonds in a current, but refined way.'

'The first piece I designed in 2002 was a nameplate with my (then boyfriend) now husbandโ€™s name, ROB,' she recalls. 'I loved that piece and the story it told, and wanted to bring back the idea of Lana Jewelry customization.'

Madonna watches Chris Rock: 'Loved This Mans Show!'


The Perfect 24-Hour Spa Day Involves This, According to Madonna

'You have M from MDNASkin.com,' is how Madonna answers the phone while doing press for her new skin-care line out of Japan, MDNA, named after her 12th studio album, which was named after the pop icon herself.

Cutting right to the chase - youโ€™d expect nothing less from a music legend and cultural symbol who has made a career out of self-empowerment - she delves right into the eight-product line that now includes a light, water-based finishing cream that is packed with hydrating ceramides and derived from the shimmering mineral mica.

It is the culmination of a life spent on the road, she says, where much activity and little sleep is had. After all, good products, sleep, and water are the answer to perfect skin: 'Juice is not water! Water is water!' says the 59-year-old, her enthusiasm making way for her Midwestern accent.

The sun-conscious, Michigan-born mogul, who now has six children, the eldest of which is Lourdes Leon, 21 - 'I have dreams of her laying out by the pool without wearing any sunscreen and I go ballistic,' she says - prides herself on having always taken care of her skin, even when she was a broke artist just starting out on Manhattanโ€™s Lower East Side.

'When I was making the transition from dance to music, I would save the little money I had and get a facial on Seventh Street, sandwiched in between all of the punk stores, once every couple of weeks,' she says. 'I donโ€™t know why we took care of our skin, but we did.'

The 'we' she is referring to is her and best friend Debi Mazar, the actress who moonlighted as her makeup artist at the time, not she and then-boyfriend Jean-Michel Basquiat or good friend Keith Haring. No, she says with a laugh, 'the boys did not take care of their skin. But they were artists and painters and everything was about visuals.'

Madonna Teases 2018 Tour Plans: 'I'm Coming Back, Baby'

On Friday (Dec. 8), Madonna stopped by Live With Kelly & Ryan for a casual interview about her kids, performing and everything in between. The singer joined the two hosts for a game of 'Sketching With the Stars' and brought out her pal (and 'silver fox') Anderson Cooper to be her partner.

In a scene now cut from the YouTube video, Cooper delays the game by asking the singer when she'd be heading back out on tour, to which she replied: ''Soon. I gotta get my show together. 2017 was soccer mom in Portugal. 2018....Iโ€™m coming back, baby. Iโ€™m coming for you!'

Onlookers stunned as Madonna hops off economy

Stunned passengers were left open-mouthed as they watched Madonna get off an economy flight - loaded with her Louis Vuitton luggage - after their plane was diverted on its way to Lisbon.

The music legend, worth around ยฃ600 million, was flying from Heathrow with Air Portugal earlier this week when the crew told passengers that the plane had to refuel in Porto instead.

The American, 59, looked tired as she wore a long, black and white multi-checked coat, a monochrome striped scarf and hid her make-up free face under a grey fedora hat, reports Daily Mail.

She had been hiding completely unrecognised in the cheap seats - which cost from just ยฃ42 instead of ยฃ180 for business class tickets - until the flight landed in Porto and her agent whisked her through business class to the front of the plane.

An onlooker said: 'We'd been on the ground for about 20 minutes when I saw her assistant speaking with crew members at the front of the plane. Then I noticed all this Louis Vuitton luggage being carried past me down the aisle too. And Madonna literally walked by me. I couldn't believe it. She had no make-up on but I Googled her and I discovered that she's recently bought a place in Lisbon, so her being on the flight suddenly made sense.'

'I thought to myself 'Madonna is on my flight!'

021217SPLMADONNA3

'She looked tired as she sat and waited at the front of the plane for about half an hour. I could barely see her face, she was constantly turning away or hiding her face in her scarf. She didn't say or do anything while her agent was on her phone. Madonna was just sitting and waiting. Then she got off the plane and I saw her get on to an airport bus. I'd heard her agent saying that her car was waiting out front - they must have meant outside the airport.'

The assistant appeared to have told the crew she was Madonna but they remained professional and didn't react. No one else appeared to recognise the Holiday superstar in their midst.

The lunchtime flight sat on the Porto runway for about an hour before flying on to Lisbon.

The source continued: 'Then a lady asked why two women had left the flight at Porto. A female crew member whispered to her that it was Madonna. She was gobsmacked!'

The rest of the passengers eventually arrived in Lisbon three hours late yesterday evening.

When MailOnline spoke to Madonna's publicist Barbara Charone about this story, she refused to comment.

A spokesman for TAP said heavy rain in Lisbon meant there was bad air traffic over Lisbon.

The pilot was told that they would be in a holding queue for half an hour when they got there so they decided to touch down, he said.

The spokesman added that while TAP always carried sufficient fuel they decided that the better course of action was for the plane to land in Porto.

'TAP confirms Flight TP359 from November the 28, from Heathrow to Lisbon, diverted to Porto (distance between the 2 cities around 300 km) due to bad weather in Lisbon.'

Madonna's long-time supporter and columnist Liz Smith dies

It has been announced that Liz Smith, legendary gossip columnist and long-time Madonna supporter has died. We at madonnalicious always loved her columns and insights on Madonna and will miss them and her.

Former New York Post gossip columnist Liz Smith, who won her own A-list status with her witty chronicling of the glitterati, died of natural causes on Sunday, said her literary agent, Joni Evans. She was 94.

An affable blonde known for pealing laughter, Smith wrote a column that celebrated her famous friends, from Tom Hanks to Liza Minnelli to Madonna, and was read around the world for more than a quarter-century.

Despite her towering reputation, Smith held a lighthearted opinion of herself.

'We mustnโ€™t take ourselves too seriously in this world of gossip,' she said in 1987. 'When you look at it realistically, what I do is pretty insignificant. Still, Iโ€™m having a lot of fun.'

Born in Fort Worth, Texas, in 1923, Smith graduated from the University of Texas in 1949 with a degree in journalism and, a year later, moved to the Big Apple.

For nearly 30 years, Smith bounced from job to job - publicist for singer Kaye Ballard; assistant to Mike Wallace and 'Candid Camera' creator Allen Funt; ghostwriter for Igor Cassiniโ€™s Cholly Knickerbocker gossip column.

Smith ultimately wrote for nine New York newspapers and dozens of magazines, but it was a stint writing for Cosmopolitan that led to her big break.

While establishing herself as an authority on Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, Smith attracted the attention of the New York Daily News. She started her own column at the tabloid in 1976 - and a gossip star was born.

By the 1990s, she began a syndicated daily column that ran in Newsday and the New York Post.

The column, which was reprinted across the country and abroad, reportedly earned her more than $1 million a year.

Her scoops included Donald Trumpโ€™s 1990 split from first wife Ivana. Later, in The Post, she supported her celebrity friends, including backing Billy Bob Thornton after word got out that he and Angelina Jolie had gotten married and exchanged necklaces adorned with vials of each otherโ€™s blood.

Smithโ€™s 2000 memoir, 'Natural Blonde,' in which she admitted she was bisexual despite having married two men, was a best-seller.

In an interview with the New York Times this past July, Smith revealed that she was having trouble moving after suffering a minor stroke.

'I canโ€™t walk. I canโ€™t talk as well as I used to, but Iโ€™m relatively healthy otherwise,' she explained. 'I needed access to people,' she said. 'And youโ€™re not supposed to seek access. Youโ€™re just supposed to be pure and you go to the person youโ€™re writing about and you write the truth. Nobody can do it totally.'

'But everybody gives up something to be able to do a job, a demanding job,' she added. 'And being a reporter is a demanding, dangerous job. It may be glamorous or put you in harmโ€™s way. I gave up being considered ethical and acceptable, for a while.'

Madonna Shares an Intimate Cover of Elliott Smith Performed While โ€˜Everyone Else Is Asleepโ€™

Madonnaโ€˜s children get the best lullabies at bed time, if the singerโ€™s latest video is any indication.

The Grammy winner, 59, shared a cover of Elliott Smithโ€˜s 'Between the Bars' on her Twitter page, where sheโ€™s softly singing and playing guitar during a late-night music session.

'Strumming my favorite song when everyone else is asleep,' she captioned the black and white video posted early Thursday, adding the hashtags #prayer #lullaby and #love.

This isnโ€™t the first time Madonna has expressed her love for the track off Smithโ€™s 1997 album Either/Or. In a 2006 interview with Q magazine, she named 'Between the Bars' as the song from the last 20 years she wished sheโ€™d written.

She also covered the tune at a 2013 screening of the short film #SecretProjectRevolution. The singer was dragged into the room by men dressed as prison guards. Halfway through the performance, she was accompanied by a masked dancer dressed head-to-toe in blackโ€”who just happened to be her son Rocco.

Madonna proves she's no material girl as she shocks passengers by flying economy to Lisbon

She may be the Queen of Pop, but Madonna opted to shun first class travel in favour of economy on a recent flight to Portugal.

The 59-year-old shocked passengers after she jetted out of the capital to Lisbon on Halloween.

The Material Girl singer was pictured using her phone in a window seat on the Air Portugal flight in what appeared to be economy class.

The picture was taken by a fellow passenger who captioned the image: 'If you fly with M! London - Lisbon. 2017.10.31.'

Despite denying herself first class travel she did allow herself the luxury of extra leg room.

Fans struggled to believe their eyes with one tweeting: 'Can you imagine boarding a plane and then sitting next to the f****** QUEEN?! I JUST CAN'T. @Madonna.'

Another posted: 'If I got on a plane and MADONNA was sitting next to me in coach I would LOSE MY MIND.'

A third was shocked that she doesnโ€™t own her own plane, writing: 'Wtf madonna doesnt have her own plane? Xd.'

Madonna was reportedly in London to visit her son Rocco Ritchie, who she has with ex-husband Guy Ritchie, before boarding the flight to Portugal to visit her second son David Banda.

The 12-year-old, who Madonna adopted from Malawi in 2006, recently signed to the Benfica football team youth academy.

Madonna is said to be splitting her time between the UK, US and Portugal and recently bought the 18th century โ€˜palaceteโ€™ Quinta do Relรณgio in the hilltop town of Sintra in Lisbon.

Madonna dodges punishment in worn underwear lawsuit

Madonna ducked a legal sanction Thursday for refusing to have her deposition videotaped in her lawsuit over the auction of some of her memorabilia, including a pair of worn satin panties and a love letter from late rapper Tupac Shakur.

The Queen of Pop is suing former pal Darlene Lutz for consigning her 'highly personal items' to the online auctioneer Gotta Have It! Collectibles last summer, claiming the ex-friend did not have permission to sell her property.

Madonnaโ€™s lawyers barred Lutzโ€™s videographer from attending her deposition in the case in August.

On Thursday, Lutzโ€™s lawyer asked the judge to punish the 'Vogue' singer for the move.

'[Madonnaโ€™s] credibility was called into question a number of times' during the legal grilling, the lawyer, Judd Grossman, told Judge Gerald Lebovits in Manhattan Supreme Court.

For example, Grossman said, he asked Madonna during the deposition about a pair of panties sheโ€™d sent to a former lover over 20 years ago that were yanked from the auction block when she sued Lutz.

'Do you have any good-faith basis to allege that my client, Darlene Lutz, took these underwear from you?' as the singer has alleged, Grossman pressed.

'I do not,' Madonna admitted.

She also conceded that fan-club letters and snapshots from a Miami bachelorette party that are at issue in the suit had previously been published, according to Grossman.

'[Madonna] was visibly uncomfortable during the deposition. There were periods of time when she closed her eyes, struggling to find an answer,' Grossman said.

But her behavior during the questioning is forever lost to history - and to a jury - because the deposition was not recorded, Grossman argued.

So should the case go to trial, the jury wonโ€™t be able to fully asses her credibility, he said.

Madonnaโ€™s attorney, Brendan Oโ€™Rourke, countered that he believed that the judge had told the parties there would be no videotaped depositions. The judge said he couldnโ€™t recall either way.

Oโ€™Rourke added that Lutzโ€™s counsel couldnโ€™t point to one specific instance of perjury in Madonnaโ€™s testimony.

Judge Lebovits said that recorded depositions are not the norm, before declining to sanction Madonna.

'I would say that theyโ€™re exceptionally atypical,' the judge declared.

Lutz is asking the judge to toss the case based on Madonnaโ€™s alleged admissions that many of the items are not, in fact, personal.

Madonna visits the community of Providence

This picture of Madonna was posted by the official military police account of Rio de Janeiro: @UPP Police and #Madonna, during the singer's visit to the community of Providence, on the afternoon of Wednesday (25/10) #ServireProteger'


Ready For Wedding Bells!

Madonna joined other celebrities including Bono, Paul Oakenfold, Helena Christensen, Dakota Johnson, Ashton Kutcher, Demi Moore, Karen Elson, Jennifer Meyer, Noel Gallagher, P Diddy and Chris Rock, Matthew McConaughey, David Arquette, Owen Wilson, Anthony Kiedis and Flea at Guy Oseary's vow renewals in Brazil.

Madonna posted several pictures on her Instagram account from Rio:


Madonna's Pre-wedding moment!

Madonna and family descended upon Rio de Janeiro on Tuesday to celebrate Guy Osearyโ€™s wedding to Brazilian model Michelle Alves. While the pair have been married since 2006, they dubbed their celebration a wedding.


25 Years Later, Madonnaโ€™s โ€˜Sexโ€™ Book Is Still Popโ€™s Most Radical Moment

Twenty-five years ago, Madonna put the world in a trance with the release of Sex. Well, she put some of the world in a trance: During its first day in stores, the $50 coffee-table book, which lived up to its carnal title, sold 150,000 copies, and it soon topped The New York Times Best Seller list. Of course, because it was mainstream art promoting libidinous pleasure, a puritanical outcry followed. Many critics, cultural theorists and fans alike found the BDSM-themed photo collection scandalizing, even repulsive. In their eyes, Madonna, who already faced accessions of overexposure following a decade of chart-topping provocations, had crossed the line.

Today, Sex is still the most radical career move a pop star has ever made.

During Madonnaโ€™s imperial phase - the ephemeral period in an artistโ€™s career when everything turns to commercial gold - she sang about teenage pregnancy, introduced the famous cone bra, burned Christian crosses, simulated masturbation on an arena tour and made a video so prurient that even the youth-centric MTV refused to air it. That was childโ€™s play.

The publication of Sex - on Oct. 21, 1992, one day after its companion album 'Erotica' arrived to mixed reviews - marked the moment Madonnaโ€™s priorities graduated from making you dance to making you horny. Michael Jackson had been grabbing his crotch for years, and Prince wore an assless pantsuit to the 1991 MTV Video Music Awards, but women were only allowed to push so many buttons. The competing female pop stars of the 1980s couched their sexuality in other aesthetics: punk camp (Cyndi Lauper), androgyny (Annie Lennox), anthems about respect (Janet Jackson), love-hungry wholesomeness (Whitney Houston). For Madonna, however, there was a continuum between 'Like a Virgin,' the 1984 single that sparked her first brush with controversy, and 'Erotica,' a concept album about fornication, conceived in the shadow of the conservative Reagan era and the ongoing AIDS crisis.

My night with Madonna (and Sean Hughes)

Journalist Tim Cooper wrote this article about the late comedian Sean Hughes, and how they both ended up waiting to meet Madonna:

Back in the late 1990s I used to run into Sean Hughes all the time at parties. He was a Perrier Award-winning stand-up comedian and team captain on Never Mind The Buzzcocks who would go to the opening of an envelope, so long as it included a free drink. I was the Showbusiness Correspondent of the Evening Standard so I was often there too.

Such was the case when we both found ourselves in a room at the ICA waiting to meet Madonna one night in November 1999.

Madonna had expressed an interest in seeing the band Sneaker Pimps and, unbeknown to most of the audience (but not me and Sean, who were in on it), had sequestered the upstairs area of the music venue so that she could watch them without having to mingle with the plebs - me and Sean, and all the paying punters. The first most people knew of that was when we were all herded out of the bar and into the downstairs auditorium before the gig began.

We then waited, muttering darkly, while security men blocked the exits for Madonna and her then-boyfriend Guy Ritchie, riding high with his film Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, to ascend the stairs to the balcony and take their seats in the front row. It was like the Royal Box at Wimbledon: all that was missing was a regal wave from Her Madgesty to signal to the band that she was ready for her command performance to begin.

#MadonnaFanParty 28 is on Saturday 21st October!

Come and join all of Madonna's biggest fans as we celebrate 25 years of the Erotica album!

Madonna's Erotica single was another Gold selling single. In the UK, her then-record company Warner Brothers continued it's catalogue of mismanagement of Madonna's releases and prevented her getting a number 1 by failing to release the Erotica Remixes CD in the UK, instead opting for 4 formats containing the same 3 edits, with a folded up poster as a lacklustre 'bonus' with the 12". Nonetheless the track still hit number 3!
