Coming off a 1.287 million sales week for her latest studio effort 1989, Taylor Swift uploaded an Instagram video of herself as a token of appreciation to her fans and other humans who decided to purchase the album. (THE. WORLD. IS. SO. GREAT. SOMETIMES.) Taylor expressed her immense gratitude the way that any pop star would – you know, by lip-synching to Kendrick Lamar’s “Backseat Freestyle”. Taylor is so good to us, fam. Expressing herself in the form of hip-hop isn’t new to Tay. Heck, she was even dubbed ‘T-Swizzle’ by T-Pain. While she may be the reigning champ of non-rapping entertainers who have fun rapping sometimes, Taylor isn’t alone. The genre (?) is comprised of so many greats. Surprise! Even Madonna thinks it’s cool.
Madonna is the queen of controversy, so it’s only fitting her Instagram account comes with its fair of — erm — envelope-pushing posts. However, is it possible the Material Girl has gone a little too far with her (oftentimes) blurry pictures? You tell us.
It seems hard to believe, but Madonna‘s second studio album Like a Virgin turns 30 today. The groundbreaking pop LP did more than establish the Material Girl — single No. 2 off the record — as a cultural phenomenon, it defined a decade. After Virgin, Madonna became a style and music icon; her rough-and-tumble yet glam look was mimicked by teens around the world. With the record, Madonna became arguably the world’s first dance-pop superstar. Oh, and the best.
Here we are again….. So much has transpired over the past few weeks and if you ask me, none of it is quite worthy of my attention; but I’m doing it for you, my fans. Oh, before I forget I want to thank you all for your questions. I couldn’t possibly answer all of them…so why would you send me so many? As I said in one of my songs, “Time goes by, so slowly” but my watch is 10 minutes ahead and I’m late for a studio session with Diplo.
Remember, send me all your video questions via Instagram and YouTube with the hashtag #MadonnaDearest…..and you’re still sitting there reading this post because…..?
While the votes continue to roll in, we’re closer to determining who is the ultimate Queen of Pop. And while Pop Stars are known to be shady as hell, you’d be surprised to know that not all of them are. Let us introduce to you a special breed: the Diva. Shade is the Pop Diva’s second language. It’s Beyoncé coughing. It’s Madonna taking a slow sip of tea. It’s Whitney and Mariah not giving a flying f–k. Bet you’ve never seen Britney throwing these verbal knives!
Madonna bought Chance The Rapper a Razor scooter, Selena Gomez breaks down in tears in her new video, Lollapalooza makes a huge announcement and more on First Dibs.
You already know who it is…Madonna….MDNA…Queen….do we have to go over that again? I didn’t think so. Now that I’ve refreshed your neurons and awoken the spiders that you forgot to remove from your brain since Halloween, get into the groove for episode two of my show #MadonnaDearest. Bethenny, Elton John, Biebs, and Nick Jonas all conspired to entertain in different ways this past week. Subjects in my royal court? Not. I would get into it in writing, but then you wouldn’t watch my show and then we would have a problem. See what I mean? You scratch my back and I’ll let someone else scratch yours? Deal?
Remember, send me all your video questions via Instagram and YouTube with the hashtag #MadonnaDearest and I MAY respond to them…..Keyword: MAY. I’m late for my seaweed wrap. Madonna, OUT!
Watch Madonna Dearest every Tuesday at 11 am.
What’s up? It’s me, Madonna. The Ray of Light needed to heal the world….cause you know. The world needs it….or whatever. Anywho, Lola always asks me about things pertaining to reality T.V. and pop culture. I’m happy that she thinks Mommy is the cradle of all things known. So I decided to take a break from recording my new album, hire a filming crew, and answer a few questions about hot topics. I mean, I’m Madonna. I’m the undisputed Queen of Pop and Music, regardless of the outcome from your silly Pop Queen Faceoff poll. Of course you want to know my opinion of the court jesters who entertain me frequently.
Get into my new show, #MadonnaDearest….and if you have any questions for me, hashtag it Instagram. I’ll get to it….after I perfect my downward dog position!
In a music industry full of dynamite female acts, who reigns supreme as the ultimate pop goddess? It’s a daunting question, but we are determined to find the answer. Let’s get ready to rumble, because the next round of VH1′s Pop Queen Faceoff kicks off today! And it’s not going to be easy. We pit music’s biggest don’t-give-a-f—k divas — Madonna and Rihanna —against each other for one glitter-soaked cat fight. Who will come out on top? You decide!
