There are reports that organisers are working with Madonna’s representatives to sign the singer for a two song appearance for a rumoured paycheck $1 million.
The singer has been working on a new album, which sees her reteamed with French producer Mirwais who worked on her Music album that was released in 2000. Madonna’s last album was 2014’s Rebel Heart.
So far only one new song has been heard, Madonna debuted a new tune when she performed at New York’s Met Gala in 2018. Eurovision would be a huge television audience for Madonna to reveal a new tune to.
Website YNet is reporting that Canadian-Israeli billionaire Sylvan Adams will foot the bill for Madonna to attend, because he wants this years Eurovision to be one of the most memorable.
There have been calls for the singing competition to be boycotted because it is being held in Israel. Madonna has performed in the country several times in the past.
Justin Timberlake performed at Eurovision 2017 in Stockholm, although he later admitted he didn’t know anything about the singing competition.
'Plaintiff is a revered performing artist, and her reputation and success are no secret,' the residents of Harperley Hall on W. 64th St. say in a new Manhattan Supreme Court filing.
'But her unique ability to fund endless litigation, however meritless, prejudices the building’s innocent shareholders who are funding this litigation while also complying with the use provision that plaintiff seeks to invalidate for personal desires,' they gripe.
The Material Mom sued the co-op in 2016 over a rule that said her children and domestic help could not live in her $7.3 million pad unless she was 'in residence' at the time.
She argued she couldn’t possibly comply because she’s a 'world-renowned recording artist' who is 'constantly on world tours' and who 'owns many residences around the world.'
But a judge wasn’t impressed and tossed the suit in 2017.
Madonna has appealed the ruling.
Her neighbors now want her to compensate them for their lawyer’s fees noting that she has 'seemingly endless means to pursue litigation, however tenuous her claims may be.'

The GLAAD Media Awards honor artists, journalists, film and television programs and other forms of media for fair and inclusive representations of the LGBTQ community. The ceremony will take place over two days beginning on March 28 in Los Angeles and culminating with the presentation of Madonna’s honor in New York City on May 4.
Madonna has made innumerable contributions to LGBTQ visibility, including her continued employment and support of LGBTQ backup dancers, speaking out against bullying of LGBTQ youth and related suicide, and boycotting the Boy Scouts of America for their LGBTQ-exclusionary policies (to name a few).
'Madonna always has and always will be the LGBTQ community’s greatest ally,' said Sarah Kate Ellis, GLAAD’s president and chief executive. 'From the HIV crisis to international LGBTQ issues, she fearlessly pushes for a world where LGBTQ people are accepted. Her music and art have been life-saving outlets for LGBTQ people over the years and her affirming words and actions have changed countless hearts and minds.'

In those days, as seen in a throwback photo she shared on Instagram this week, Madonna wasn't allowed to wear anything remotely like the provocative outfits that quickly became a staple of her onstage presence; suffice it to say, there weren't any cone bras in her childhood bedroom's closet. In the photo, Madonna and her lookalike younger sister Paula smile at the camera on a grassy lawn on the day of Madonna's high school graduation, likely in 1976 or '77. They each wear brightly patterned, sleeveless maxidresses that, as she wrote in the caption, they'd made themselves using Butterick sewing patterns. 'I was always so embarrassed we could not afford store bought dresses. In retrospect Im [sic] glad i learned how to use a sewing machine,' she wrote, adding, 'Notice No cleavage or bare knees!! Papa Ciccone was very strict.'
They say all trends inevitably come back around - so there's definitely a chance we'll see Madge rocking knee-covering, cleavage-hiding homemade dresses on her next world tour. (Then again, probably not.)
