Promoter: Madonna tour schedule a hoax

'Madonna has the same celebrity staying power as Marilyn'

Harvey Weinstein says Marilyn Monroe's future would have looked a lot like Madonna. At Sunday's world premiere of the Weinstein Co.'s 'My Week With Marilyn,' which stars Michelle Williams as the late film icon, we asked Weinstein to name a modern celebrity whose fame will be as lasting. Weinstein responded with her Madgesty's name.
'She's the most extraordinary modern celebrity that we have,' Weinstein said at the Dior-sponsored premiere, adding: 'Madonna is Marilyn Monroe with women's emancipation.' We think he makes a viable point, but we should also point out that the marketing-savvy Weinstein is also releasing Madonna's sophomore directorial attempt, 'W.E.,' on Dec. 9.

I Think I Love You

Andyy, you're making Madonna fans look like saps. If you mean Weinstein is riding on her coat tails, then why didn't he release Filth and Wisdom? I believe he was asked...
Madonna may be considered 'number one' in many aspects of the media business, to you and some others. But as a director, I'd be surprised if she's in the top 100 of directors!!
I think you'll find in this arena, Madonna is riding on Wiensteins coat tails. He has a *far* better track record for movies than Madonna - who is just starting out in the business of actually making the movies.


oh please, give it a rest, he is riding on her coat tails, i mean come on, everyone knows she is the number one greatest singer, mom, philanthopist, spiritualist, pffff, duhh!
