Madonna Spends Thanksgiving With Homeless LGBT Youth: 'Everyone Deserves to Be Loved'

Madonna knows the power of love, which she demonstrated on Thursday, when she paid a visit to homeless LGBT youth at a New York City shelter.

The 58-year-old pop icon brought her rebel heart to the children and teens at Brooklyn's Ali Forney Center for Thanksgiving, documenting her random act of kindness in an Instagram pic posted on Friday.

'Had so much fun sharing Thanksgiving at the Ali Forney Center in Brooklyn!' Madonna wrote, explaining that the center is an empowering safe haven for LGBT youth. Named after a gender non-conforming teen who fled his home at age 13, the center cares for more than 1,200 youth who face rejection from their family for their identity.

The center's motivation, she wrote, simply, is 'because everyone deserves to be loved and everyone deserves a home.'

Madonna stands by son Rocco Ritchie after reported arrest

Madonna says she is supporting son Rocco Ritchie after reports surfaced Wednesday that the 16-year-old was arrested for possession of marijuana in London.

Madonna released a statement to The Associated Press Wednesday calling the September arrest 'a family matter.'

She said: 'I love my son very much. I will do whatever I can to give him the support that he needs, and I ask that you respect our privacy at this time.'

Rocco was the subject of a months-long custody dispute between Madonna and ex-husband Guy Ritchie. The couple divorced in 2008. They finally agreed in September to allow Rocco to continue living with his father in London.

According to a report in The Sun newspaper, Rocco was arrested on Sept. 28.

Madonna is desperately seeking transportation: The singer will be James Corden's next passenger on Carpool Karaoke.

Madonna broke the news on Wednesday via Instagram, sharing a picture of herself cozying up with the host of The Late Late Show with James Corden and noting: 'Riding around Manhattan with this Hunk of Burning Love @latelateshow carpool karaoke.' Meanwhile, The Late Late Show tweeted: 'Just a typical Wednesday with @Madonna. NBD. #CarpoolKaraoke.'

Madonna and more celebrities join NYC anti-Trump protests

Star power fueled a handful of New York City anti-Donald Trump protests.

Madonna, Mark Ruffalo, T.I., Meek Mill and Taran Killam were among the famous faces who found themselves in the midst of New York City 'Love Trumps Hate' protests on Wednesday night.

Thousands turned out across cities like New York, Chicago, Portland, Seattle, Austin and Atlanta to express that they wouldn't buy into the hate that President-elect Trump represents.

Nearly 10,000 protesters marched down Fifth Ave. holding signs that read 'Donald Trump's Victory Doesn't Speak for Me,' 'Wall St. Is The Enemy, Not Muslims or Immigrants,' and 'Liberty For All Americans, Not Hate.'

Madonna - an outspoken Hillary Clinton supporter - shared a video of marchers chanting 'Not My President,' with the caption: 'Need to Turn these Words into Action..........So Now What? Us Rebel <3's Unite. N.Y.C. Start A Revolution of <3. Do Not Lose Hope! We will Rise Up! We will Shatter that Glass Ceiling. Do Not Give into Fear. This is the Reality of our collective consciousness. Now more than ever we need to take responsibility!'

Madonna Performs Acoustic Set at NYC Park to Support Clinton

The singer held an impromptu performance at New York Cityโ€™s Washington Square Park on Monday night, just one day before the election. Madonna, who first announced the intimate acoustic concert on social media Friday, was surrounded by hundreds of fans as she strummed her guitar next to 11-year-old son David and her guitarist Monte Pittman.

During the 30-minute gig, the 58-year-old Madge sung her hits like 'Like a Prayer,' 'Donโ€™t Tell Me,' 'Express Yourself' and 'Rebel Heart' along with an emotional cover of John Lennonโ€™s 'Imagine.'

In addition to her five-song set list, Madonna delivered a speech as to why sheโ€™s supporting the Democratic nominee.

'This is a concert about unifying us, and itโ€™s about keeping America great, not making America great,' she told the crowd. 'This is a concert about peace, and we are trying to elect - we are going to elect - a president that is going to keep America the great country that it is and has the potential to be.'

While Madonna was in N.Y.C., Clinton was in Philadelphia for a rally at Independence Hall attended by President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, Bruce Springsteen, Jon Bon Jovi, daughter Chelsea Clinton and husband, former President Bill Clinton.

Madonna to play surprise acoustic gig for Hillary Clinton

Madonna has announced she will be playing a last-minute acoustic gig next week in support of Hillary Clinton.

The surprise show will take place in New York City this Monday (November 7), on the eve of the election.

'Bitches Are You In My Gang???' the singer wrote an Instagram post. 'Doing a surprise intimate very small acoustic concert Monday night in support of Hillary. Stay tuned!'

She has yet to announce the gigโ€™s venue or a stage time for her performance.

Madonna endorsed Clinton earlier in the Presidential campaign and showed her support for the Democrat when she introduced Amy Schumer at her recent NYC stand-up gig.

She previously followed Katy Perryโ€™s lead by posting a nude photo on social media to show her support for Clinton.

'Living For Hilary!,' she wrote. 'Yes I vote for intelligence. I vote for equal rights for women and all minorities.'

'Sheโ€™s the Best we got!' Madonna added. The Presidential election takes place on Tuesday (November 8).

Idris Elba tells Madonna fans not to believe the hype

Idris Elba and Madonna sparked speculation that they are dating after the pair were reportedly spotted kissing after the Luther star participated in a boxing match.

The couple were spotted together at London's M restaurant on Friday night following the actor's fight which was filmed for his upcoming TV show Idris Elba: Fighter.

She also shared a snap of herself lying on the floor with the actor, writing: 'I kicked his butt'.

The pair met for the first time back in 2015 after he DJ'd for her Rebel Heart tour. Opening up about meeting her while promoting Luther, the actor said: 'I was excited, I had a great time. Madonna is a legend. I got there, I met a beautiful person that has been working for ever and ever, amen, and is still going.'

However on Monday, Idris responded to the rumours by posting this tweet:


Madonnaโ€™s โ€˜Make My Videoโ€™ MTV Contest Winner, 30 Years Later

Thirty years ago, MTV actually played music videos. And the network played a lot of Madonna videos. So many, in fact, that it devoted an entire day - Oct. 30, 1986, also known as 'Blue Thursday' - to Madgeโ€™s 'Make My Video' contest, running a marathon of fan-made 'True Blue' music videos that ranged from semi-professional film-school projects to amusingly amateurish camcorder clips of tots in ballet-recital tutus or tweens in Desperately Seeking Susan lace hair-bows lip-synching into hairbrushes.

A week earlier, the top 10 contest entries even took over the cable channelโ€™s regular Dial MTV countdown show, and one of those contenders - a sepia-toned depiction of โ€˜60s malt-shop romance, lensed by Venezuela-born, Miami-based college student Angel Gracia on a $600 budget - won the $25,000 grand prize, and became the official video for 'True Blue' in the States. And MTV history was made.

'Itโ€™s a bit shocking, actually. Sโ€”, Iโ€™m getting old,' Gracia laughingly tells Yahoo Music when he realizes he won the 'Make My Video' contest three whole decades ago, when he was just 21. Gracia credits 'True Blue' with launching his legitimate film career, which has included shooting commercials and even working with Ridley Scott. But he recalls that his video almost didnโ€™t make it past MTVโ€™s submission process at all.

Hoffman knows his Madonna and started the event in 2007 after seeing her ground-breaking Confessionโ€™s Tour.

'Back then it was just a bit of fun,' he says. 'Weโ€™ve now been on an amazing journey and worked with some of the best acts and DJs going.'

Topping the bill this year will be Melissa Totten, a highly-respected Madonna impersonator, who will be treating revellers to key moments from the Sticky and Sweet tour.

'David Bowie and Prince are just two of the truly unique artists weโ€™ve lost in 2016,' she muses. 'Madonna is one of our last icons, and even if she hung it all up today, she would have left a deep and lasting impact on pop culture. Music is not what it once was. Madonna floats high above the formulaic, canned pop you get on reality TV shows. There wonโ€™t be another like her, so we need to enjoy her now.'

Melissa will be joined by gay scene legends Mzz Kimberley and Seth Stomboli, along with the kind of super-human dancers youโ€™ll see cavorting with Madonna in one of her legendary shows.

The night will also be raising money for local charity Wandsworth Oasis which supports local people living with HIV.

Madonna opens show for Amy Schumer in NYC and tells fans to vote for Hillary

She said what?! Madonna made an extremely NSFW proposition to fans during her opening act for Amy Schumer at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday, October 18.

During the comedian's New York City show, the Queen of Pop made a surprise stand-up appearance, and jokingly offered to perform a sex act on male fans if they cast their ballots for Hillary Clinton in November.

'One more thing before I introduce this genius of comedy,' Madonna, 58, told the audience moments before Schumer, 35, took the stage. 'If you vote for Hillary Clinton, I will give you a blow job - and I'm good!'

Giving fans a thumbs-up, the no-holds-barred entertainer added, 'I take my time, I make lots of eye contact and I do swallow.'

This wasn't the first time the duo shared the Madison Square Garden stage together. Last September, Schumer opened up for Madonna's Rebel Heart tour during three of her NYC stops.

Madonna Is Billboard's 2016 Woman of the Year

When the 11th annual Billboard Women In Music event hits New York City this winter, royalty will be present.

Following a year where she extended her record as the highest-grossing female touring artist of all time, Madonna will receive Billboard's 2016 Woman of the Year award.

'Madonna is one of a miniscule number of super-artists whose influence and career transcend music,' said Janice Min, president and chief creative officer of The Hollywood Reporter-Billboard Media Group. 'With her creative vision, relentless innovation, and dedication to philanthropic causes, she is an inspiration to hundreds of millions of people around the world, all while shattering every career record out there. She is an important feminist on top of that, a one-of-a-kind artist who's used her influence to change the conversation around women, sexuality and equal rights.

From her Prince tribute alongside Stevie Wonder at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards to her political Met Gala appearance to her indelible commentary on the 2016 election, Madonna has remained a constant force in pop culture and source of cultural conversation over the past year.

Her Rebel Heart Tour, which wrapped in March, solidified her status as one of the biggest touring acts of all time. Madonna sold more than 1 million tickets and walked away with $170 million. That makes her the highest grossing solo touring artist in Billboard Boxscore history (the archives go back to 1990) with a staggering $1.31 billion in total concert grosses.

In addition to being the first female pop star with true control of her career and image, Madonna is the best-selling female recording artist of all time. She's earned 8 No. 1 albums (and 21 top 10 albums) on the Billboard 200 and 12 No. 1 singles on the Billboard Hot 100. With her 46th No. 1 on the Dance Club Songs chart in 2015, she extended her own record for the most No. 1s on a single Billboard chart. She also holds the record for the most top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with 38.

In addition to her ongoing chart dominance, her philanthropic efforts are effecting real change in the world. Madonna's Raising Malawi organization is currently constructing Malawi's first pediatric surgery and intensive care unit, which will double the number of life-saving surgeries performed on children each year, provide intensive care after critical surgeries, and train specialized Malawian medical staff. The Mercy James Institute of Pediatric Surgery and Intensive Care facility will open in 2017.

The seven-time Grammy winner will receive the honor at the 11th annual Women in Music event, held Dec. 9 in New York City and airing nationally on Lifetime on Dec.12. The star-studded event is held in conjunction with the publication of Billboard's Women in Music list, which identifies the 50 most powerful female executives in the industry each year.

34 Years Ago Today....it all started!


Madonna goes topless in solidarity with Katy Perry's naked 'Rock the Vote' video

The Queen of Pop wants to rock the vote - in the buff.

Madonna tweeted plans to cast her ballot while naked in solidarity with Katy Perry after the pop artist released a parody public service announcement through Funny or Die and the nonprofit Rock the Vote.

The provocative 58-year-old pop icon showed off a topless selfie early Wednesday and said she would be supporting Hillary Clinton in the November election.

'I'm voting naked with Katy Perry,' wrote Madonna, hinting that more nude pics for a voting series may be on the way.

Madonna was sporting a grill plate on her teeth for the cropped photo.

The Material Girl has a history of pushing sexually suggestive motifs to encourage young people to complete their civic duty.

Madonna famously draped her bikini-clad body with an American flag for the controversial commercial that aired on MTV, kicking off the first โ€œRock the Voteโ€ drive in 1990. The progressive voter outreach group recruits celebrities to campaign.

Madonna defends BFF Rosie Oโ€™Donnell from Donald Trump

So, you probably watched Mondayโ€™s presidential debate (it kinda feels like the entire world was watching), and chances are you remember the part where Trump slammed Rosie Oโ€™Donnell, whom heโ€™s made derogatory comments about in the past.

To refresh your memory, this is what Trump said exactly: 'I said very tough things to her. And I think everybody would agree that she deserves it, and nobody feels sorry for her.'

This came right after Clinton had raised the point that Trump has a history of slandering women ( relevant, because itโ€™s not exactly an ideal quality for the president of the United States).

And then longtime friend Madonna came to Oโ€™Donnellโ€™s defense like a champion! We donโ€™t hear from this superstar very often, but she didnโ€™t waste any time in showing her support.

The two have been friends for years, and in times like these, itโ€™s pretty easy to see why. Trumpโ€™s comments were immature, unnecessary, and uncalled for, and weโ€™re glad that heโ€™s being called out for his behavior in such a graceful way. Quite simply, women deserve better.

Madonna Hits Premiere of Beatles Documentary

On Thursday night, it was girls' night out for Madonna as she hit the premiere of director Ron Howard's new documentary on The Beatles.

The film, The Beatles: Eight Days a Week - The Touring Years, chronicles the best-selling band during the years of their initial success, focusing on their history-making world tours and their power as a live act.

With two gal pals by her side, the 58-year-old singer rocked the blue carpet โ€“ wearing a button-down black and white varsity dress. Her blonde locks down by her side, Madonna accessorized her look with gold hoop earrings, and array of necklaces and a pair of black Alaรฏa ankle boots.

'Just perfect,' the Detroit native wrote on Instagram, of the film after its premiere. 'An inspiring and sobering reminder of this genius band.'

'Epic,' she wrote in another post.

The movie inspired the 'Material Girl' singer to try her hand at her own cover of a classic Beatles tune, singing their 1964 track 'A Hard Day's Night' in an Instagram video with her friends.

Madonna and Ritchie reach custody deal over Rocco

Madonna and ex-husband Guy Ritchie have settled a court dispute over the custody of their 16-year-old son Rocco.

A spokesman for the New York State court system said the pair had reached an agreement, but did not reveal with which parent the teenager would live.

Ritchie's lawyer Peter Bronstein said Rocco would continue to live with his father in London.

The dispute arose in December when Rocco ignored a court order to fly back to live with his mother in New York. He has since stayed with his father in the UK capital and enrolled in a school there.

Madonna's lawyers have not commented on the settlement.

In December, a judge ruled that Rocco should return to his mother. But she decided not to issue a warrant to enforce the order, urging the pair to reach an agreement.

New York State Supreme Court Justice Deborah Kaplan said: 'No-one is disrupting his household other than the inability of the parents to reach a resolution. If they cannot resolve this matter then eventually the court will.'

Madonna and Ritchie married in 2000 and divorced eight years later.

Liz Smith: 'This is stardom. Please stand back'

She came, she saw, she wore red, and she stayed for the whole movie! I do mean our girl Madonna. The iconic M put in a totally surprise appearance at the special screening of director Alek Keshishianโ€™s classic documentary, 'Truth or Dare' at The Museum of Modern Art on Wednesday night. (Alek, choreographer Vince Paterson and two of Madonnaโ€™s dancers, Salim Gauwloos and Jose Guitierez, stayed for a Q & A after.)

MoMAโ€™s Joseph A. Berger, who had put together the event - along with other Madonna-themed tributes this month - was totally flabbergasted by La Cicconeโ€™s presence. But that stop didnโ€™t stop him from sticking to his original remarks, which were funny, fierce, personal - he was a 12-year-old gay boy struggling, in 1991, when 'Truth or Dare' hit screens; the daring glimpse into Madonnaโ€™s life - her matter-of-fact embrace of her gay dancers lives and issues - altered his own life and perceptions.

AIDS was still pretty much a death sentence in 1991. There wasnโ€™t much positivity for gay youth. The freewheeling, vibrantly liberated 1970s and early 80s had devolved into fear, loathing and religiously sanctioned indifference. Madonna brazenly danced, sang, spoke up and finger-snapped away a great deal of that darkness.

As for the great star, she looked gorgeous, and upon leaving, she appeared pleased, having watched herself at the white hot pinnacle of her fame. The movie is as political, powerful, funny, cringe-inducing, sexy, gritty, without vanity, totally self-obsessed, artful, artificial, genuine and as awkwardly practiced as ever. Itโ€™s a genius slice of life. And not just her life, or her particular career.

'Truth or Dare' is fashioned as a vehicle to display fame at its most intense, pleasurable, invading and isolating.

A hundred years from now, the 'Vogue' segment alone - Madonna onstage performing, interspersed with scenes of her being mobbed and adored - will be introduced thus: 'This is stardom. Please stand back.'

Madonna Celebrates Michael Jacksonโ€™s 58th Birthday

The Queen of Pop is missing her King. Madonna took to Instagram to pay tribute to her late friend and fellow superstar Michael Jackson on Monday, August 29, what would have been his 58th birthday.

Her Madgesty, who herself just turned 58 two weeks ago, posted four feels-inducing throwback pics of the pair from the โ€™80s and โ€™90s, including a snap from their iconic red carpet appearance at the 1991 Academy Awards.

'Happy Birthday to this wonderful and glorious creature!!' the 'Vogue' singer captioned the collage. '๐Ÿ‘‘ The King! Gone too soon! โค๏ธ โฃโค๏ธโฃโค๏ธโฃโค๏ธโฃโค๏ธโฃโค๏ธโฃ.'

Jackson tragically passed away in June 2009. That same year, Madonna honored her pal and his chart-topping career during a heartrending speech at the MTV Video Music Awards.

'In a desperate attempt to hold on to his memory, I went on the internet to watch old clips of him dancing and singing on TV and on stage, and I thought, โ€˜My God, he was so unique, so original, so rare. And there will never be anyone like him again.โ€™ He was a king,' she told the star-studded audience in 2009. 'But he was also a human being, and, alas, we are all human beings, and sometimes we have to lose things before we can truly appreciate them.'

During an October 2009 interview with Rolling Stone, the Material Girl revealed that while she and Jackson made a failed attempt to work together, they ended up spending the entirety of their friendship having fun. 'So thatโ€™s what we were doing: watching movies, having dinner, hanging out, going to the Oscars, being silly, seeing if we could work,' she told the magazine. 'He got relaxed. He took off his sunglasses, had a glass of wine, I got him to laugh.'
