Since the weather is finally turning (knock on wood) it made me want to feature an upbeat, bright, shiny song this week. Madonna's Ray of Light, the album and the song, took Madge in a completely different direction in her career. After a break from making albums on her own and after the success of Evita, Madonna had given birth and turned to kabbalah. This more spiritual, earth-mother side was evident in her 1998 album Ray of Light. The second single released off the album was the title track and it came out soaring. The song was written by Madonna, William Orbit, Clive Muldoon, Dave Curtiss and Christine Leach, and was produced by Madonna and Orbit. Ray of Light was a fast-paced dance floor burner that found Madonna stretching herself vocally beyond what she had ever done before. Reaching #5 on the Hot 100 in July of 1998, the song and video, directed by Jonas Akerland, were everywhere. The song one two Grammys for Best Dance Recording and Best Short Form Music Video and was nominated for Record of the Year. Truly one of Madonna's most recognizable and popular hits, Ray of Light is a staple of her live performances now. Enjoy the amazy, luminescent hit Ray of Light. Do you feel like you just got home?


Picture this: A young boy of 13 in a small Texas town eagerly awaits Madonna's new song. The day of it's release to radio, November 6, 1984, he pretends to be sick so he can stay home from school and record it EVERY time it comes on the radio. That homo was me, and that song was LIke a Virgin. True story. Of course the song (and the boy) go on to be super classics and remain a staple of Madonna's catalogue to the very day. It was the first of 12 #1 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 and stayed in the top spot for 6 consecutive weeks and the first of 4 Top 5 hits from the album of the same title. The video (below) was filmed in Venice and does not disappoint. Sexy Madge writhing around on a gondola and making love to some dude in a lion mask. Shutever, it's hot. Anyway, here's Like a Virgin. Enjoy it or be punished.


Madonna is practically made of money, and in 1989 she was beginning to realize it. She was (is) the queen of everything and was riding the wave of her latest #1 album and single Like a Prayer. Her second single from LAP was the funky, hard-driving smash Express Yourself. Madonna decided to put some of that money to use and make, what was at the time, the most expensive music video EVER, coming in at $5 million (it's still the 3rd most expensive). Directed by David Fincher, the video was a tribute to the silent film Metropolis and featured Madonna as the ruler of an industrial world, using men as her playthings and getting chained up in the process. Hot! The song itself hit #2 on the Hot 100 and opened her 1990 Blond Ambition World Tour. A fan favorite and one of Madonna's signature songs, Express Yourself sounds as up-to-date today as it did back then. Check out the video below.


Madonna has many, many classic songs, but high -- WAY high on that list would sit a little song I like to call (because it's the name of the song) Into the Groove. Jebus lawd, this song is amazy!!! What most people DON'T realize is that it was never actually released as a single in the U.S. It was merely a B-side to Madonna's song Angel from her Like a Virgin album. Her record company released as a B-side so it wouldn't compete with the songs on her LAV album, but also to promote her film debut in Desperately Seeking Susan. The song was released in the UK, reaching #1 in the summer of 1985, and in many other countries around the world. The song is without a doubt a highlight in not only Madonna's long career, but in the dance music genre in general, changing the beats, the sound and the groove of the 80s. The music video is made up of clips from Madonna's first starring role in a movie, Desperately Seeking Susan, and shows THE image of Madge's early career. Madonna still performs it in concert, most recently and notabley on her Sticky & Sweet tour she sang it while doing double-dutch. She's over 50, people!! She is working for you! Anyway, here is the classic song Into the Groove. Love love love it!


Romantic, girly, rapturous, splendid: just some of the words to describe the love song from Madonna's album of the same name, True Blue. The song bops along to a classic 60s girl-group beat and conjures hearts and rainbows all the way through. In September 1986 Madonna's True Blue album was already a smash with two hit singles under it's belt (Live to Tell and Papa Don't Preach) and the time came to get cozy and lovey-dovey. Written as a Valentine to her husband at the time, Sean Penn, True Blue is the ultimate song-as-a-kiss. "No more sadness. I'll kiss it goodbye. The sun is bursting right out of the sky. I've searched the whole world for someone like you." Sigh..... The song became Madonna's 10th consecutive top 10 Billboard hit, reaching #3. The video that Madonna made didn't air in the US, being replaced by an MTV contest for "Make Your Own Video", but did air overseas and featured Madonna's good friends Debi Mazar (Entorage) and Eric Belle. A simple 6os inspired clip directed by James Foley, it is shot on a sound stage and is simple and clean. Classic Madonna femininity. Enjoy the summery, blissful True Blue. I LOVE this song.


I'll start you off with a slow jam today. Ah, I love to love! Don't you love to love? Well one of my fave love songs of all time was a little boy's anthem of love for me, Crazy for You by Madonna. Released in 1985 from the Vision Quest soundtrack, it was one of the two songs (the other being Gambler) that Madonna sang as a nightclub singer in the film. It was Madonna's first ballad to be released and actually competed with her songs from Like a Virgin on the charts, even reaching the top 5 at the same time as Material Girl, which peaked at #2. The reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 on March 30, 1985 (knocking We Are the World out of the top position) and earned Madonna a Grammy nomination for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. Here is one of Madonna most loved and least performed songs, Crazy For You.

How do you make an already perfect perfectER? Add ABBA! That's exactly what Madonna did in October 2005 when she unleashed her monster first single from her album Confessions on a Dance Floor, Hung Up. Pumping up the elements of all that was right with disco, Madonna sampled ABBA's Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight) to perfect effect, hitting #1 in 45 countries and entering the Guinness Book of World Records as the song hitting #1 in the most countries. The song tied Madonna with Elvis Presley as the artist with the most top 10 hits, that being 36!!! (Madonna surpassed Elvis with 4 Minutes). FYI: Hung up was Madonna's first single to be released to iTunes. The music video, directed by genius David LaChapelle, had a documentary look to it and showed kids from London, Paris, New York, L.A., Shanghai and Tokyo (Madonna's dancers and dancers from LaChapelle's film "Rize") all coming together in a nightclub to dance and celebrate with Madonna. Parts of the video, like Madge dancing in the studio in a pink leotard in the beginning, are inspired by Saturday Night Fever. Madonna, 46 at the time, was looking better than ever and kept up with the "kids" in the video like the Queen she is. Anyhoo, here is Hung Up. Enjoy and remember, "time goes by so slowly for those who wait."[source]


Dress You Up was the fourth single released from Madonna's already MASSIVE Like a Virgin album, the album that made her an icon, and her sixth consecutive Top 5 hit on the Billboard Hot 100. The song caused quite a bit of controversy upon it's release as it was added to Tipper Gore's list of the "Filthy Fifteen" songs (along with Prince, Sheena Easton, Def Leppard, Cyndi Lauper and others) for what she felt was it's overt sexual content. Hilarious!! I'm sure that doubled it's sales. Tipper also commented on Madonna herself saying, "Popular culture is morally bankrupt, flagrantly licentious and utterly materialistic—and Madonna is the worst of all." Well, if you got it, flaunt it. The video for the song was a clip of Madonna singing Dress You Up during her first ever world tour aptly titled The Virgin Tour. It's a time capsule of sorts showing Madge in all her glory from her earliest days in the spotlight: crazy hair, lace gloves and tights, wild makeup. Makes me yearn for my youth. Enjoy Dress You Up....NOW!!


Music makes the people come together, and no one knows that better than the Queen of music, Madonna. On August 21, 2ooo Madonna released a song that took us all back to the time she was all about shakin' the boot-ay!!! Music was the first single from the album of the same name. The song was an immediate, worldwide hit and made Madonna one of the few artists to have #1 hits in the 80s, 90s, and 2000s. It was her 12th #1 in the US. The video features a VERY pregnant Madonna (disguised in a big coat most of the video, she was pregnant with Rocco) and her two gal pals, Niki Harris and Debi Mazar, riding around to hot spots in a limo driven by Ali G. (Sasha Baron Cohen). Because Madonna was in a family way (and keepin' her baby) an animated action sequence was put in the video. There are also A LOT of strippers and a license plate that says "MUFF DADDY". Brills!!!! Anyhoo, enjoy Music by Madonna. [picture source]


Madonna was the ragamuffin girl with the bow in her hair, the piles of bright makeup and the torn tights. Much to the surprise of everyone in the music industry, Madonna did the very first of her MAJOR image changes when she popped up on screen with a pixie haircut and a very lean physique. Papa Don't Preach was the first official single from her smash hit album True Blue (Live to Tell was out before the album as a track from the film At Close Range). The song caused controversy for it's "keeping my baby" stance and, for the first time, parents were praising Madonna for a pro-life message, while some women's organizations condemned Madonna for encouraging teen pregnancy. It's a story in a song. Madonna told the New York Times, "Papa Don't Preach is a message song that everyone is going to take the wrong way. Immediately they're going to say I am advising every young girl to go out and get pregnant. When I first heard the song, I thought it was silly. But then I thought, wait a minute, this song is really about a girl who is making a decision in her life. She has a very close relationship with her father and wants to maintain that closeness. To me it's a celebration of life. It says, 'I love you, father, and I love this man and this child that is growing inside me'. Of course, who knows how it will end? But at least it starts off positive." The song reached #1 on the Hot 100, becoming Madonna's fourth song to top the charts. The song, along with the music video, are among Madonna's most memorable and important. Truly a classic by any standards, here is Madonna's giant hit from the summer of 1986, Papa Don't Preach. [source]


Madonna's Ray of Light album from 1998 introduced a new musical direction for Madge and sparked a trend of electronic influenced music that spread like wildfire throughout the industry. The first single from ROL was Frozen. Full of string and Middle-Eastern influences, Frozen marked a sharp departure for Madonna. Fresh off the vocal work she had done for Evita, you can hear that Madonna's voice is stronger and her range increased on this beautiful electronic ballad. The song was a great success, reaching #2 on the Billboard Hot 100, hitting the top spot in many countries, and debuting at #1 in the UK (her first single to do so). The video, directed by Chris Cunningham, was shot in the Mojave Desert and contains some amazing special effects. Frozen is one of Madonna's most successful singles and certainly one of her most gorgeous videos. Take a look and enjoy Frozen or you are stupid.


In 1992 Madonna was in one of my fave movies of all time, A League of Their Own. It was about the early years of the women's baseball league. Give it a watch-see if you haven't already. put a cherry on top of that sundae, Madge recorded one of her most beautiful songs, This Used to be My Playground. It's a haunting ballad about loss and memories and all that good shizz. The song went to No. 1 on the Hot 100. The video, directed by Alek Keshishian (the director of Truth or Dare), is exceptional. It is set up as photos in an album and as the pages turn Madonna is seen in different locations and different outfits as the pictures move and she sings the song. It's really gorgeous and if you don't think so, you're stupid. Enjoy Madonna's This Used to be My Playground.

She's already a pop goddess, so why not pattern her album after an actual goddess? Aphrodite, Kylie Minogue's new album, is certainly fit for deity. Kylie has strung together an slick, danceable, delectable group of pop sugar that will have you dancing all summer long. I have already fallen in love with lead single All the Lovers (and if you have any taste, you have too!!), but there are so many gems on the new record you will be bloated with sonic happiness. Get Outta My Way pumps with guitars and booms and Put Your Hands Up (If You Feel Love) is a throwback to early 90s Kylie and shows that she was always ahead of her time. Closer and Everything is Beautiful slow it down a little bit with dreamy arrangement and lyrics of love. Aphrodite starts off a little like Speakerphone, but the end product is nothing like it at a good way. Minor keys and soul with a bit of R&B thrown in to the mix. This is a single crying to be released. Illusion starts with a trippy vocal intro before kicking into an electro beat and funky blips. Better Than Today was introduced on Kylie's American tour, but here it is in full, studio effect. Better than ever!! Too Much is a groovy song that again hearkens back to early Kylie with it's cute, girlish tone and dance beats that would make Paula Abdul swoon in her heyday. Cupid Boy has an indie feel and could easily be Kylie's next single. It's sex and love at it's lyrical best and musical orgasm with a bare chorus that is pure heaven. Looking for an Angel and Can't Beat the Feeling round out the album with an uplifting, dreamy one-two punch. This is an amazy summer album that will be HARD to beat. Good luck everyone else releasing music this summer. GO KYLIE!!! A+


Human Nature was the 4th single from Madonna's 1994 album Bedtime Stories. A fan favorite, the song was not wildly successful on the charts, only reaching #46, but was a success in club play, reaching #2 on that chart and was a top 10 hit is Canada and the UK. The thing that is most remembered about Human Nature is the AMAZY video!!! It is really one of Madge's best and should be worshiped daily by all the Madonna-wannabe's working today. Directed by Jean-Baptiste Mondino, Madonna, with her hair in cornrows, and the (sexy as hell)dancers and her chihuahua, Chiquita, are dressed in black leather S&M gear. Lots of whips and ropes and M in a black bikini. It's all very tongue-in-cheek with Madonna making faces and crossing her eyes at the camera and the choreography (done by Jamie King who would later become a frequent collaborator) is super-superb!!


Thought I'd swith things up and save Madonna for the end of the day. Madonna's third single from her Like a Prayer album was quite a gem. Cherish is a tribute to those sweet sounding girl groups from the 60s, much like the song True Blue before it. The song was released August 1, 1989, eventually peaking at #2 on the Hot 100 and becoming Madonna's 16th consecutive top 5 single, 17th top 10. Definitely one of Madonna's sweeter songs, Cherish is all about love, comparing the lovers in the song to Romeo and Juliet, but better! The video is a simple black and white shot on the beach by famed photographer Herb Ritts. Madonna is joined by a bevy of hot, hunky mermen, including her boyfriend at the time Tony Ward (hot hot hot. see here). The song stands the test of time and is as fun to listen and sing along to as it was in 1989. Enjoy Cherish by Madonna.

Of all the songs Madonna has recorded, the one she has said she most regrets is Material Girl. Why? Not because she doesn't like the song, but because it was misunderstood and gave her the nickname she hates the most!!! The second single from her smash sophomore album Like a Virgin, Material Girl has become one of Madonna's most recognized and popular songs of all time. Meant to be ironic, the song casts Madonna as a girl not interested in relationships and love but money and fame. The video was even inspired by one of the most famous gold-digging songs of all time, Diamonds Are a Girls Best Friend, with Madonna doing her first "Marilyn" look and mimicking the dance sequence from the film "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes". Material Girl shot up the Hot 100 to #2 on the charts, eventually sharing the top 5 with her next single, Crazy For You. Interesting side note, Madonna met her first husband and the man she called the love of her life (in the film Truth or Dare), Sean Penn, on the set of the video for Material Girl. Worldwide hit, classic 80s song, a defining moment in the career of the most famous woman in the world, Material Girl is truly a gem.


In early 1989 Madonna decided to make a little masterpiece and blow my 17 year-old mind. "Like a Prayer" was a gospel inspired, enchanting song about how her lover's voice sounded....well, you know how it goes. The song came out to radio in February and was used in a Pepsi ad depicting Madonna as a little girl on her birthday. Very cute and innocent and a great little commercial. THEN THE SHIT HIT THE FAN!!!! Madonna released the video. Burning crosses, stigmata, a black Jesus, rape, stabbing. Oh, my!!! It was HEAVEN!!!! Of course everyone went batshit crazy. People started threatening to boycott Pepsi, so they stopped airing the commercial (pusses). Consequently, Madonna got to keep the 5 million dollars she was paid (cha-ching) for the spot and the video is on just about every "most kick ass videos in history" list you can find (suck it). The delicious controversy turned the song into an epic event. It was a number one hit and sold 5 million copies worldwide at the time of it's release. Arguably one of the most inspired songs of her career, "Like a Prayer" is a little slice of pop music history that will live on and on and on .......


Vogue in an undeniable pop classic, one of Madonna's most successful singlesand has glamour running out of it's ass! Originally released in 1990 on the album I'm Breathless (Music from and inspired by the film Dick Tracy), Vogue was written originally to be a B-side for the single Keep It Together from Like a Prayer. Shep Pettibone and Madge wrote it, but the record company thought it was too good to be a B-Side and so they included on the I'm Breathless album, adding in the middle spoken part about classic movie stars to tie-in with the theme of the album. I think anyone worth their salt knows that part of Vogue. If you don't, you must be a deaf nerd. The song reached No. 1 on the Hot 100 and also reached No. 1 in 30 countries. It was a record at the time for Madonna. (Since taken over by Hung Up which hit No. 1 in 45 countries). The video is thought by many to be one of Madonna's greatest. Shot in black and white with bright, beautiful lighting, Madonna and her dancers "vogue" and dance their way through several setups inspired by 1930s Hollywood and the Art deco artist Tara de Lempicka. The song and video are, dare I say, pop masterpieces that have really stood the test of time. Enjoy Vogue.


Awww yeah!!!! Lucky Star is the first song of Madonna's that I was OBSESSED with. I remember dancing around my room for hours trying to do the "Madonna kick" (that's what my friend Traci and I called the hitch kick) from the video. I have often cited Madonna as being responsible for just how gay I am, (I believe I once was quoted as saying "Madonna is my gayness") and this song is a BIG part of that. Originally the song was going to be released before Holiday, but since Holiday was already a club hit, Lucky Star ended up being released two singles later. It's a classic, the video is a classic, and just look at that hair!! YEAH!! Here it is, from 1984, Lucky Star!!!!


It's Gay Pride week here in NYC and in celebration of that amazy occasion, That's a Good Blog is having a Madonnathon weekend!!!! Watch for all Madonna, all weekend. Exclusives you can't see anywhere else (except on the internet and pretty much anywhere else you want to see them. ha!) All right. Let the games begin!!!!!!

Scissor Sisters are releasing their album Night Work the end of this month, (available for preorder on iTunes now) and they are making the rounds all over the world to promote it. Here they are performing their new single, Fire with Fire, on Friday Night with Jonathan Ross.


Hot mess from hell reality star, Danielle Staub from the Real Housewives of New Jersey, isn't letting the fact that her eyebrows have been pulled to the back of her head stop her from jumping on the "I'm a singer too" train started by some other "housewives" alums. She debuted her new single, Real Close, on Bravo's late night show Live on Bravo last night. Andy Cohen looks like he enjoyed, but then again, I'm not sure his face moves from that expression without manual manipulation. Anyhoo, she actually conned legitimate musician Lori Michaels into singing with her. The isn't actually that bad, but that face kinda ruins it. If she gets one more face lift she's going to have a beard. Enjoy?


Cyndi Lauper, one of the most beloved singers of our generation, is 57 today. It doesn't seem possible!!! Cyndi has been rockin' since the late 70s, originally with a group called Blue Angel, then hitting fame with her debut solo album She's So Unusual. She's won two Grammy awards, sold over 25 million records worldwide, and won two Emmys. Icon, advocate for Gay rights and all around super lady, it's an all day Cyndi celebration in my brain. Enjoy some classic Cyndi! [source]

Kylie is not the only Minogue working the music biz right now. Dannii Minogue, Kylie's little sister, has reportedly inked a $1.5 million deal with Ministry of Sound, a dance label, for a new single. Dannii, who is pregnant with her first child, hasn't released any new music since 2007 when she began judging on X Factor is the UK. There are also reports Dannii will film the process of recording for a reality show. No stranger to the music scene, Dannii has racked up 12 #1 hits on the UK dance charts in her long career. She also flirted with success on the US Electro charts, hitting #17 with her Neon Nights album in 2003, and putting four singles on the Dance Charts: Who Do You Love Now? (#12) Put the Needle On It (#17) I Begin to Wonder (#9) and Don't Wanna Lose This Feeling (#8). I'm excited to see what Dannii puts out next. [source][image]

...and #1 might be a some. MJ's most successful singles were ranked by Billboard magazine, and to ensure fairness eras were weighted since the Hot 100 has been determined differently over time. This list included solo, duet and tracks form the Jackson 5. Coming out on top is Michael's duet with Paul McCartney from late 1983 Say, Say, Say. The song spent six weeks on top of the Hot 100 starting in December 1983. Now, I remember this song very well and it was a HUGE success. The song and video, in which LaToya Jackson plays Michael's love interest for some reason (CREEPY), were everywhere. The rest of the top 10 are a tour de force of hits by MJ and the Jackson 5 and another duet with McCartney. Here it is:

10. The Girl is Mine (duet with Paul McCartney)

9. ABC (Jackson 5)

8. I Want You Back (Jackson 5)

7. Man In The Mirror

6. Dancing Machine

5. Rock With You

4. Beat It

3. I'll Be There

2. Billie Jean

1. Say, Say, Say (duet with Paul McCartney)


Madonna rarely does covers. She doesn't have to. She's Madonna. For her 1992 album Erotica, she was not intending on doing a cover, but while working on a song called Goodbye to Innocence (which later surfaced on the charity record Just Say Roe) Madonna started singing the lyrics to Fever, the classic song by Peggy Lee, over the track. She liked it, and the rest is history. Though never released as a single in the US, appearing only as a B-side for Bad Girl, the song was a massive club hit, reaching #1 on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart. The song was the highest debuting song from Erotica in the UK, charting it's first week at #6. The video for the song shows Madonna is various costumes and features a remixed version, not the album version. The most famous performance of the song is from Madonna's Girly Show Tour and I will show it to today!!! Along with the amazy video. Yay me!! Enjoy the hot track from Erotica, Fever.

Poor Christina Aguilera. Her new album didn't debut at #1.....or #2. Bionic comes in at #3 behind two soundtracks. Holding down #2 is the soundtrack to the crapfest that is Twilight: Eclipse (barf) and #1 is Glee: The Music, Journey to Regionals. YEA!!!! This is the third Glee album to hit the top spot (Vol. 3: Showstoppers and The Power of Madonna being the first two). To make it sting even harder, the Glee soundtrack only has SIX songs on it. Christina's album isn't that bad, it is just nothing to rave about and she needed it to be. Good for Glee though!! [source]

YEA!! Cyndi's back. Lauper's new album, Memphis Blues, is set to be released June 22nd and here she is performing on David Letterman. Watch!


Kathy Griffin was on The View again (I guess the ban was lifted. Ha) and Elizabeth Hasselbeck tried to start shizz with her, and Kathy was ready. Not only does it not make sense what Elizabeth said because Kathy had just said it herself, but the audience was CLEARLY on Kathy's side. I guess even the audience at The View thinks Elizabeth is the weakest link. Watch the action below. The new season of My Life on the D List started last night on Bravo.

You would think that after her criticism of Lady Gaga's Alejandro video that Katy Perry's video for California Gurls would be about abstinence and the importance of monogamy. Not so much. Watch Katy get completely naked and suck on things in whorey clothes. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE it. Of course, I like my women a little on the whorey side.

He's still cute, but he has two faces...LITERALLY!!!


YEA!! Adam is back again with a video for his excellent single If I Had You. The video also features Ke$ha!! Check it out below.


Once again, Cate Blanchett can do no wrong. Only she could rock this pant suit. Lovely. [image]


This is awesome. As Grand Marshals for L.A. Pride, Kelly and Sharon Osbourne took their duties one step further, out-yelling anti-gay protesters during the festivities. When the group of ignorant bigots started yelling at the people attending the parade, Sharon took to loud speakers shouting, "you should be ashamed of yourselves!" Indeed!! Then Kelly took the lead, starting a chant that caught on "God loves gays" and got so loud that the protesters were completely drowned out!! Hooray for the Osbourne ladies!!! That's what we need, some brassy, big-mouthed hags on our side!! Love it. [source][image]


Boy George is hardly a boy anymore!!! The singer turns 49 today. Boy George and Culture Club are among the biggest stars of the 80s music scene, arguably the most diverse and prolific of any decade in music (and my fave). George has seen his rough days (kidnapping a hooker and handcuffing him in a hotel is one that come to mind) but I still love his crazy ass. A pioneer in many ways, including for the gays and cross dressers, Boy George is an icon of the first degree. Enjoy some Culture Club today!!!


What do you get when you cross the Oscars with the Grammys? The Tony Awards apparently. The winners last night were a varitible who's who of the music and movie industry with Scarlett Johansson winning for Best Featured Actress in a play, Catherine Zeta-Jones winning for Best Leading Actress in a Musical, Denzel Washington and Viola Davis walking away with Best Leading Actor/Actress in a Play and Greenday's American Idiot walking away with a couple of minor awards but most of the show's performance spots. Lea Michele and Matthew Morrison from Glee, Broadway vets themselves, even appeared on the show to bring in some ratings. Not that any of these people don't deserve their awards, but it seems the theatre community is having to embrace "names" in order to fill seats, which is really unfortunate in some ways. As long as the work doesn't suffer, then I guess it doesn't hurt. Sean Hayes, who was nominated for Lead Actor in a Musical for Promises, Promises, did a great job hosting and Kristin Chenoweth, also riding high on her Glee appearances, popped up every few minutes. All in all, not a bad show, but not a great year for Broadway. Click HERE for a full list of nominees and winners.

Here are clips from the tracks on the Scissor Sisters album, set for release at the end of the month, Night Work. I can't wait to hear this whole album. Scissor Sisters never disappoint. You can pre-order the album HERE on iTunes.


on Germany's Next Top Model, of all places. Ha. Well Heidi Klum does host, so I guess it's a little more high-brow than here in the US. Anyway, check out Kylie's rockin' performance of her new summer smash hit All the Lovers. Can't wait for the album!!!!

I have always loved a good Madonna ballad (Live to Tell, La Isla Bonita, You Must Love Me, et al). There is nothing like it. Like a Prayer had a couple of amazy ballads that really stand the test of time, but the depth and sorrow that accompanied Oh Father was mesmerizing. A tale about her, it also shed light on the abusive relationship she had been in with her ex-husband Sean Penn and the feelings of guilt that come even from being a victim. The song itself, the fourth single from the Like a Prayer album, is one of Madonna's most beautiful ever. Unfortunately, it didn't connect with her audience at large and only hit #20 on the billboard Hot 100, becoming Madge's first single since Holiday in 1984 not to go top 10. Boo!! The video is a masterpiece. It never fails to bring a tear to my eye. Semi-autobiographical in theme, we see a young girl in an abusive relationship with her father after her mother's death, and Madonna as the adult version in a bad relationship with her boyfriend. It was directed by David Fincher. So if you are in the mood, watch an emotional video below, then go back and search for a "happy" Madonna Friday song. BUT WATCH THIS ONE NOW!! I COMMAND THEE!!

Look, this is nothing that new. Madonna used religious imagery way back in the 80s. This territory has been covered. America's Catholic League is briging a lot of helpful press to Lady Gaga's brilliant video that she described as "a celebration and an admiration of gay love" by claiming that it's imagery is "Catholic bashing". In a statement they write:
"Lady Gaga is playing Madonna copy cat, squirming around half-naked with half-naked guys, abusing Catholic symbols - they're always Catholic symbols - while bleating out Alejandro enough times to induce vomit... She has now become the new poster girl for American decedence and Catholic bashing, sans the looks and talent of her role model."
There are SEVERAL problems with this statement. I don't believe the image of a cross in any way belongs to Catholics. Secondly, this video is not a copy of Madonna. Sure, some of the images are similar, but the director, Steven Klein, has worked with Madonna also. Lady Gaga responded on twitter saying:
"So many will try to destroy me. So many, over and over, coming in periods of greatness. But in this period, I cannot be broken. ...Prejudice is a disease. And when they come for you, or refuse your worth, I will be ready for their stones..."
Gaga has the back of those she supports and we have hers. All this controversy does is bring more attention, and ultimately more sales, to Gaga. The director, Steven Klein, even denotes just the opposite of Catholic bashing, telling MTV:
"The religious symbolism is not meant to denote anything negative, but represents the character's battle between the dark forces of this world and the spiritual salvation of the soul. Thus at the end of the film, she chooses to be a nun (and she swallows the rosar beads to represent) the desire to take in the holy."
Well there you go. GAGA FOREVER!!! I truly think this might be my second favorite Gaga video of all time (behind Bad Romance). It's gorgeous. I think I'll post it again. Here ya go. [source]


My fave male model of ALL TIME, Tony Ward, is 47 today. He is possibly hotter than EVER at that. Tony ( has been a top male model for about 25 years. He is also famous for dating Madonna in the early 90s, appearing in her SEX book, and his movie Hustler White. Check out Tony through the years.
