Top US magazine Entertainment Weekly have published a list of what they consider to be the 25 Essential Fansites - and madonnalicious makes #10!
They're sites made by fans for fans - obsessively tracking every episode, casting announcement, and live gig from our favorite TV shows, films, and musicians. We've whipped up the 25 sites that truly put the .com (or .net, or .org) in community....
Launch Date January 2003
What You'll Find:
London-based blogger Clare puts a decidedly European spin on Her Madgesty's comings and goings, from German tabloid scans to an archived BBC audio interview with Madonna's producer/collaborator Stuart Price.
Why It's Essential
Madonnalicious' basic HTML isn't pretty, but the site is incredibly meticulous - from constant updates on the Material Woman's estimated $120 million deal with Live Nation to camera-phone snapshots from the U.K. premiere of the new Desperately Seeking Susan stage show, all accompanied by Clare's chatty, conversational musings. There are also reams of vintage and obscure photos with handy links should you feel compelled to download a 1987 Madonna-starring Mitsubishi ad.
Official Site madonna.com
Find a feature on the singer's current cause, raisingmalawi.org, and design your own Madonna T-shirt; membership (which costs $39.99 a year) also gets you the digital magazine Icon - but none of the juicy pap shots or behind-the-scenes 'licious drama. - Leah Greenblatt
And Entertainment Weekly will be pleased to know that our basic HTML will get a little bit more prettier on Christmas Day when madonnalicious relaunches! ;-)
