Nobody looks like that at 53 and is really upset.
Madonna, may claim to be "Very upset," about the leak on the internet of her forthcoming song "Give Me All Your Love," But believing that she has nothing to do with it (The leak), is a hard candy to swallow. No one, not even a die hard fan can't help but think this is rather a compliment Madame at your age to have your music floating on the world wide web. Huhh? What*@%$????. Hargh!!! Oh non... Mon Dieu" lol "Sacre Bleu"[ lmao] In my French accent " FUCK! I kill you"...Hahah and Miss Ciconne you are a master at manipulating the media.
Well, hold yout fire. I love Madonna; I always did. Once upon a time I heard "Holiday" (Celebrate) her break trough funky song. "Holiday," was all the rage on the radio in the early/mid 80's and for some stereotypical reasons I assumed the singer was black. To be fair about my ignorance; at the time most of us did, and as a viral video would catch fire today on Youtube; Maddona's, "Holiday" started playing all over the world and into the clubs and on the FM. Simultaneously a movie co-starring her "Seeking Desperately Susan," hit the theater. This was an instant blockbuster it had been filmed prior to Madonna's new found fame and at the time she got paid a mere $4000 the equivalent of $7000 today. A star was born and thus I grew up loving Madge.

Rihanna is one of today's stars inspired by Madonna
In 1994, I tried desesperately to get in the Roseland, where Madonna, was performing. No luck then. In early 2000, I designed a hat for her, I delivered it backstage at the Roseland. At the time I had a little store front in The village within"Tattoo Seen" selling hats; belt buckles with names and scarves with rhinestones. I had made hats for Prince's website so I thought let me design something for her too. But this is only in 2008 that my dream came true. I got to see the Queen of Pop up close and personal, at her intimate concert she was throwing for her fans kicking off her for Hard Candies tour for her last studio album "Candy Shop," with former label Time Warner.
Madonna is a true star! I will never forget how stunning she was. Such a pro; focused and shining trough. Madonna, has mastered the art of entrance. So far in her career she has made a point to collaborate with anyone in the moment. Looking at her music and videos is like looking at the history of music since the mid 80's. I remember Timberlake; Pharell; performing with her with a strong of break dancers coming out of a train on stage. #Insider Madonna is currently dating a French Break dancer. She has been famous and center stage for over 25 years. Married twice;infamously with Sean penn, she has children from different parts of the world and a teen daughter designer!. She was booed often when her "Sex" book was published and was seen as a new low in pop culture; mainly by critics who did not even take the time to read it. The book is a collector item now. She survived the storm; actually it made her an even bigger star. She is vindicated by new comer like Lady Gaga and Rihanna who have both been influenced by her either they acknowledge it or not. Long are gone the day Britney Spears was prematurately crown the new Princess of pop. To answer that Madonna, gave Britney the "kiss of Death," live at the VMA. Seriously tough, Madonna has proved to be a master of survival for her relevance for both her image and music trough the last 2 decades. How she does it? She had to survive on the streets of NYC when she first arrived from Michigan Detroit. Later she flew to Paris and became a back up dancer for Patrick Hernandez. She found herself on TV, for the first time for his Disco hit "Born to be Alive." As a dancer she follows a strict discipline and stay in great shape by eating healthy and marrying and now dating younger guys. Madonna, is Street wise and in her movie "In Bed With Madonna," one gets a chance to see what it takes to be her touring the world. She kissed girls long before katy Perry; dated her dancers long before J-Lo. She is the epitome of Diva in show biz today with a majority of gay fans. Lady Gaga is the direct product of Madonna; for better or worse (depending who you ask). She would arrive at events and the paparazzi would wait religiously. Once she arrived they would scream "Madonna!! over here, over here!" and if she did not stop for pictures she would be called a whore. I always thought this was sexist because Prince would not stop for pictures either and no one called him a whore. #Fact Michael Jackson (R.I.P), Prince, and Madonna all became famous at the same time and age. Madonna had a song produced by Prince in her first album. This was probably facilitated by the fact that they were label mates. Still she hooked up with Michael Jackson for a very well documented entrance to the Oscars. Ironically MJ and Prince always competed; or at least the media made it look that way. Madonna, staying power has been her abilitiy to live in the present and to be able to interpret the new trends with her new look(s) and her music. A mogul, Madonna has a real estate empire a music catalog, fashion holdings trough her daughter Lourdes'clothing line Material Girls a line of Eyewear in collaboration with her friends Dolce & Gabbana, A $130 Millon deal with Live Nation. This is her first album with Live Nation who surprisingly paid more Lil Wayne, Jay Z and 50 Cent, to follow suit. Under Time Warner she even was given her own label Maverick in a multi million deal over $10 million; that was a record then. Madonna true love is acting even though she never was recognized as a major force in that industry. she notoriously fought for the lead role for Evita, to portray the Argentina, legend; she got it and nailed it. Today she is also a movie director. "She has penned a "beautiful ballad" for her movie "W.E."The picture, Madonna's second feature film as director, follows the life of Wallis Simpson, the American divorcee whose relationship with King Edward VIII sparked a constitutional crisis in Britain and led to his abdication.The film, which had its world premiere at the Venice film festival, hits U.S. theaters in December and British cinemas in January."[quote from Reuters article] 2012 will be Madonna year. She has made million people around the world happy with her music ;videos and films. She deserves it.
Welcome back Queen of Pop and for the memories bellow arguably the song from Patrick Hernandez, that made it all possible for you - DR

PICKING UP MY CAMERA AFTER A FORCED FEW MONTHS HIATUS WAS LIKE GETTING BACK ON ROLLERBLADES; IT TOOK ONLY 5 MINUTES. Like my photography page HERE.
Never been much of a cigarette smoker I started at 13 years old and I had quit by age 15. But when it comes to pot or hashish; I smoke a joint whenever I feel like it. This is natural and it feels good. This week marks the 40th anniversary of the U.S.-led war on drugs following it's announcement by President Richard Nixon, on June 17, 1971. " The global war on drugs has failed, with devastating consequences for individuals and societies around the world" by The numbers 40 M Total drug war-related arrests since 1971. Drug offenses remain the No.1 cause of incarceration domestically, high above arrests for violent crimes. 11M+ approximate number of arrests for marijuana-related offenses since 1980, based on figures from "Drug War Facts." $500 Cost to government, per second, in the war on drugs. $15B U.S budget for drug war related activities for 2011-2012. $1T Estimated cost of prosecuting the war on drugs for 40 years, according to an AP report. To illustrate the absurdity of all of this even Justin Timberlake came clean this week on his pot habit "The only thing pot does for me is it gets me to stop thinking...Sometimes I have a brain that needs to be turned off. Some people are just better high." the 30 year old star said. See what Wiz Khalifa, makes of all of this in the video bellow, LOL. Everyone knows someone who does drugs; withstanding the fact that prescription drugs in some case can be as dangerous or more dangerous than street drugs. IE Anna Nicole Smith; Marilyn Monroe; Michael Jackson all dead from prescription drug related addictions. Source-metro news. Analysis & additional text - DR

"Just Married" Levi's window on 14 st & 10th Ave 06/16/11
I was shot in the face when I was 5 years old for being black. More details in my V.I.P Various Imbecile Protected book. Today in New York, marks a decisive day in the LGBT fight for equal civil rights.
At the time I am writing this; only 1 vote is needed to pass the same sex marriage bill in NYC. Any kind of discrimination; any way you put it is WRONG. Labeling yourself is also wrong. People have the right to love/sleep with who they want. A caring sexual partner will make a point to use protection though. I was born in Switzerland, and I am naturally inclined to be neutral. I will talk more about my personal experiences in my book but on D-Blog, I want to be clear today. Let everyone marry. Let everyone know what it is to commit to a relationship. Let everyone take their responsibilities without having to hide behind false pretexts. Let equality be the rule. Text and photo by Djamee- DR
