Madonna announced on Sunday the first winner in the Art for Freedom online competition that she and Vice, the Canadian culture magazine, have established to encourage visual and video artists, photographers and poets to create works that focus on social justice. Madonna has also expanded her partnerships in the project to include the social website Tumblr.



The winner, Lesmack Meza Parente, from Mazatlan, Mexico, produced "El Gran Dictador," a video mashup using the emotional closing speech from Charlie Chaplin’s film "The Great Dictator" (1940) and contemporary images that provide a modern interpretation of Chaplin’s humanistic plea. Madonna will give a $10,000 grant to a nonprofit organization to be selected by the winning artist, and there will be one prize each month for a year. (Mr. Parente’s choice of organization has not yet been announced.)
Madonna began the project in September, when Vice presented the premiere of “Secretprojectrevolution,” a stark, black-and-white film about intolerance, violence and apathy that she made with the photographer Steven Klein, as well as a 40-minute interview about the film.

At the time, she invited viewers to submit works through her Art for Freedom website, although she is now moving the submissions for the project to Tumblr.
Madonna plans to present some of the entries on Tumblr on November 12, with her own live commentary. The next winner is to be announced in early December.

Lourdes Leon - the daughter of pop superstar Madonna - has landed the role of Betty Rizzo in her high school's production of 'Grease'.

Madonna's daughter Lourdes Leon is to star in her school's version of 'Grease'.

The 17-year-old fashion designer has landed the role of Betty Rizzo in the LaGuardia High School production of the iconic musical, which is set in a 1950s high school, New York Daily News column Confidenti@l is reporting.

The role was played by Stockard Channing in the 1973 movie - which starred John Travolta as Danny Zuko and Olivia Newton-John as his love interest Sandy Olsson.

Wisecracking Betty is a member of The Pink Ladies clique of girls with Sandy and ends up dating T-Birds group member Kenickie (Jeff Conaway).

Lourdes enrolled in the exclusive New York school in 2010 and it was there where she met her boyfriend, 'Homeland' actor Timothee Chalamet.

Shortly after they began dating, Madonna arranged a meeting between her and Timothee so she could get to know the boy who had impressed her daughter so much.

Madonna did it first as usual.



Actually when that Jose & Luis ft. Madonna song premiered at the 1992 Dolce and Gabbana show it was originally subtitled “Work Bitch.” Proving once again that Madonna did everything first, and all others remain reductive.






So when Madonna did Vogue she scooped up Jose & Luis Xtravaganza (of the House of Xtravaganza, naturally) to appear in the video, contribute choreography and tour with her. She also released a few tracks by the duo on her record label, including this forgotten wonderful bit of camp. She contributed uncredited vocals (towards the later half of the song) and its one of the few times she’s appeared on another act’s song, and its so gay and wonderful.

This is the censored video version, but in other mixes the term “Work Bitch” is prominently featured.

Pussy Riot member Maria Alekhina has unfortunately been denied parole and a Russian news outlet’s headline “No Russian Feels Any Respect for Pussy Riot” is less than progressive.

Ooh Gurl. Donna hated Siedah.
But to be fair, why would Madonna pull out Donna to sing, as her main role was echo Madonna's voice exactly?
Since then, Donna has been replaced with computers :/

Madonna visited the Hurricane Sandy-devastated Rockaways in New York. Museum of Modern Art curator Klaus Biesenbach, who has a home in the area has been rallying people to help and tweeted afterwards:

"thanks to madonna for volunteering and keeping the hopes up in the rockaways today!"
