Is Madonna heading to Eurovision?

Rumours are flying that Madonna might be the interval act at Eurovision in Israel this year.

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.

Madonna’s neighbors want her to cover their $140K legal tab

Madonna’s Manhattan neighbors are fed up with her 'endless litigation' against their apartment building - so they’re asking a judge to force her to cover their $140,000 legal tab.

'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.'

Madonna to Receive GLAAD’s Advocate For Change Award

LGBTQ advocacy organization GLAAD has announced plans to honor Madonna with their Advocate for Change Award at the 30th annual GLAAD Media Awards. Reserved for public figures who have dedicated their work to advocating for LGBTQ rights, Madonna is the second person to receive the honor after Bill Clinton in 2013.

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.'
