Is Madonna’s Kiss Her Way Of Anointing The Next Big Thing?

Posted by John Mitchell On December - 8 - 2011

Madonna

So everyone’s going crazy because Nicki Minaj tweeted that she locked lips with the Queen of Pop, Madonna, on the set of the music video for “Give Me All Your Love,” the buzzed about first single from Madonna’s forthcoming 12th studio album.

Apparently, kissing Her Madgesty is oh-so good … “OH MY f’ingggg Gahhhh!!!!! MADONNA jus kissed me!!!!! On the lips!!!!!!! It felt sooooo good. Soooo soft!!!! *passes out* aaahhhhh!!!!!!!!!” Nicki tweet-screamed to all of her Brabz and Kenz late last night. She continued her swoon-athon with a series of tweets (which you can check out after the jump!) for over an hour after.

Which got us thinking about what a kiss from Madonna really means. Of course, any time Madge locks lips with another lady, our mind is immediately drawn back to the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards, where the Queen and the Princesses – that’s Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera, for those who don’t know (and how is life under that rock?) – performed a “Like A Virgin” medley that included one of the most famous lip locks of all time.

In its own weird way, a lot of people read the performance and kiss and Madonna’s way of anointing Spears as her pop successor. Sure, she kissed Christina too, but that’s not what anyone remembers. They remember that jaw-dropping lip lock with Spears, who was then at the height of her global fame and still a few years removed from the personal drama that nearly consumed her career (blessedly, she got the help she needed and is back and as good as ever today).

Does that mean she sees something special in Nicki too?

Minaj has had a very big year. She had a multi-platinum record with Pink Friday and earned a ubiquitous radio and chart hit with “Super Bass.” And everyone loves her – from Taylor Swift to Justin Bieber’s number one girl Selena Gomez to Britney Spears herself, who handpicked Nicki for her Femme Fatale tour, everyone is gaga for Nicki. Minaj is also beloved by critics and the hip-hop community.

So maybe getting a publicized smooch from Madonna is her way of showing faith in a young performer. After all, when Spears returned to the big time for her comeback album Circus and appeared in the MTV documentary “Britney: For the Record,” Madge was there to lend a hand to the resurgent superstar, proving her support for Spears wasn’t fair-weather. Spears went on to release the best album of her career this year with Femme Fatale, which at least one MTV Newser thinks was the best album of the year.

Perhaps puckering up with Nicki means something similar. We can see Madonna taking a liking to the sexy and sassy rapper. Nicki seems exactly like Madonna’s kind of girl. Or maybe it was just her way of wishing her a happy birthday!

Rihanna Joins Madonna And Lady Gaga On Esteemed List Of Banned Videos

Posted by MTV News On November - 21 - 2011

Rihanna

By Henna Kathiya and Carly Kilroy

With Rihanna causing a stir in the music world with her controversial outfits and racy music videos, it comes as no surprise that her most recent hit “We Found Love” has been banned from being played in France before 10PM. But she’s not the only mainstream artist to have her video banned from television. We spent some time looking through some of other videos that have been banned over the years and came up with a list of our five favorites.

Just make sure you don’t get caught watching these videos on your work computer. They got banned for a reason, after all!

Lady Gaga, “Alejandro”
What list would be complete without resident badass chick Lady Gaga? Lady Gaga has made her fame off of being weird and raising a lot of eyebrows with her fashion and compelling videos. The video for “Alejandro” is no different. Complete with religious and political symbolism, the Grammy Award-winning artist does not make her opinions subtle. As a LBGT activist, this video pays homage to the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell policy with the classic raunchy Gaga twist. The video features a homoerotic military theme, with shirtless boys serving as her backup dancers. The video also shows Gaga wearing a latex nun’s habit. Other than making a blatant political statement, the video shows Gaga gyrating on a bed with one of the scantily clad dancers and openly making sexual gestures while wearing the nun’s habit. The end of the video also shows Gaga ripping off her latex nun’s outfit and having all the dancers grope her body. No wonder some sectors of the public were up in arms about this video.

Read on for more!

Erykah Badu, “Windowseat”
While the video starts out looking fairly innocent, it quickly takes a turn in the opposite direction. The video begins with Erykah walking on Elm Street (the site of the John F. Kennedy’s assassination) during the day, before she begins stripping off her clothes in broad daylight – much to the horror (or delight) of some people. She disrobes one piece at a time, until she is down to nothing but her birthday suit. Badu is completely nude as she approaches the spot on Elm where Kennedy was shot (which is marked with an “X” on the pavement). The sound of a gunshot can be heard and Badu collapses as if she has been shot. Streaks of blue “blood” then spill from her head as she lies in the street, spelling the word “groupthink.” Even more interesting was the fact that Badu did not obtain permission to shoot this video, making it a piece of guerilla filming, so the reactions of the passersby in the film are completely real. Talk about racy.

Madonna, “Justify My Love”
In classic Madonna fashion, this video is one of the most famously banned clips. After watching the video it’s not hard to understand why. The black-and-white video features risqué hotel room antics with Madge using her co-star, model Tony Ward, as her sexual play thing. The video mixes film-noir elements with sexual fetishes (leather, latex bodysuits, and corsets) with Madonna rolling around in a bed wearing skimpy lace underwear, a garter belt and stockings while various shadowy figures come and go. The only actual nudity occurs when a topless dominatrix — suspenders partly covering her breasts — appears and roughly grabs a bound man by the hair. The sexualized, androgynous theme of the video certainly struck a nerve with the general public.

Also banned from playing during daylight hours:

Enrique Inglesias, “Tonight I’m F**king You”
Even changing the racy song title to “Tonight I’m Loving You” couldn’t save this player’s anthem from landing on the banned music video list. Within the video there are multiple sporadic clips of Enrique, um, “entertaining” a number of different women, but that isn’t all. It’s the cluster of barely dressed women all grouped on a bed behind Inglesias, grabbing at him, that pushes this video over the edge.

Ciara, “Ride”
Ciara is known for her spicy and confident choreography, but the moves in her music video “Ride” feat. Ludacris proved to be just a little too provocative for television. Not only was the choreography too much for some, but her wardrobe (which included a barely there black body suit and a wet white T-shirt) had parents up in arms about what their children were watching.

M.I.A., “Born Free”
M.I.A.’s “Born Free” was banned for its war-like graphic content. The video is based around the violent round up and transport of a group of redheaded young men and adolescent boys to a remote dessert where they are scorned, beaten and eventually killed. Every last grueling detail is played out on screen and nothing is left to the imagination. It could be interpreted that the video is in protest of brutal acts of genocide which M.I.A. witnessed as a young child growing up in Sri Lanka.

Madonna Picks New Dancer At Event In New York

Posted by John Mitchell On November - 14 - 2011

Madonna

NEW YORK – On Saturday night at the Roseland Ballroom, the Queen of Pop held court with some of her biggest fans and ten of the world’s best dancers for the Smirnoff Nightlife Exchange’s Dance 4 Madonna competition, with one lucky dancer chosen to join Madonna’s dance crew.

The event was the culmination of a months-long online search where contestants were encouraged to submit 60-second clips of themselves getting into the groove. The best of the best then made their way to NYC to audition in front of Madonna for a spot on her next tour.

Madonna arrived fashionably late – let’s say she was very fashionable on Saturday – and as soon as she was in the house, things kicked off with a massive group performance. International groups mixing both modern and traditional dance hit the stage first to warm up the crowd. After the opening number wrapped, Madonna emerged from under the main stage in a revealing black body suit (that booty!), knee-high boots and a bloused white shirt.

The crowd went nuts, of course.

M then moved to a side stage, where she reclined on a lush white couch with her trusted choreographers to judge the competition. Her Madgesty’s massive entourage – from manager Guy Oseary and longtime publicist Liz Rosenberg to her fashionable daughter Lourdes and boyfriend Brahim Zaibat – were also all on stage to give the Queen their thoughts on the dancers.

The ten finalists – Maya Shino, Bouyahaoui Sarah, Hanany Christopher, Delphine Nguyen, Brice Larrieu, Ouachek Mehdi, Bgirl Manuela, Niek, Charles “Lil Buck” Riley and Princess Lockeroo – traveled from around the world to compete for a spot in Madonna’s dance crew. The dance solos took place all over the Roseland on a variety of stages (there was even a small dance platform on top of a video booth adjacent to the side stage) and the dancers gave their all during their time in the spotlight.

“What attracted me to the Smirnoff Nightlife Exchange Project is the combination of participating in the celebration of nightlife around the world and the opportunity to discover the world’s best unknown dancers,” Madonna said a press release. “The best dancers are always in the clubs looking for the most original experience, just like Smirnoff is doing.”

Ultimately, there could only be one winner and it was a hard enough choice that Madonna first narrowed it down to four finalists who then had to face off against each other in a bit of a freestyle dance-off.

So who was the last man standing? Ultimately, it was the very flexible Charles “Lil Buck” Riley who found himself in the Queen’s favor. “This has been an incredible journey and a dream come true,” Riley said after winning.

Once the formalities of the evening were behind her, Madge relaxed a bit, enjoyed a glass of champagne and even danced in the DJ booth where Martin Solveig, who is producing tracks for her much-awaited new album, was spinning a mix of her biggest hits (“Music,” “Hung Up”), his hit “Hello” and radio-friendly jams like “New York State of Mind.” She seemed to be having a great time late into the evening then, just as abruptly as she’d arrived, she was gone in a flash without so much as a farewell wave to the crowd.

Madonna Is Pretty Pissed About The ‘Give Me All Your Love’ Leak

Posted by John Mitchell On November - 9 - 2011

Oh no, you guys, the Queen is pissed!

Yesterday, a demo version of what was widely assumed to be the lead single from Madonna’s forthcoming record leaked online and everyone lost their minds about it for a hot second. The song, “Give Me All Your Love” featuring Nicki Minaj, received a standing ovation from the Internet, even in its unfinished form. “Give Me” is like a hybrid of early-80s Madonna and early aughts Madonna – think “Jimmy Jimmy” from True Blue meets “Beautiful Stranger” – and yeah, it’s pretty great.

Except Madonna is all, “Why’d you guys blow my spot?” Actually, what she said, according to her manager Guy Oseary, is much worse – in that sad way where you feel bad about something even though you had nothing to do with it. Earlier today, Oseary took to Twitter to lament the demo leak, saying, “Madonna told me this morning ‘my true fans wouldn’t do this.’”

He went on to admit that he, and presumably Madonna, were happy with the positive reaction to the song, but asked that whoever leaked “Give Me All your Love” stop. He even requested that Her Madgesty’s fans “police any more leaks.”

Sounds Like ___: Breaking Down Madonna’s ‘Give Me All Your Love’

Posted by MTV News On November - 9 - 2011

Yes, we are still caught up in the pop whirlwind that is Madonna’s leaked-may be finished-is it really her single ‘Give Me All Your Love’ (and yes, we still have a version here even though its being pulled feverishly from every corner of the Internets as we type).

What struck us most is how the song is wholly original while it also borrows from countless corners of pop and dance music. Everyone in our newsroom heard little bits and pieces of something else in it.

Haven’t Heard It Yet? Do Yourself a Favor and Hit Play:

So, without further ado, we break down just what we heard between the lines.

First off, there’s that L-U-V Madonna, Y-O-U you wanna chant that acts like a call to arms.

You don’t have to think to hard to land at Gwen Stefani’s ‘Hollaback Girl’ with its cheerleader chatter geared for the dancefloor.

And any cheerleading reference lands you back at the grandmother of all the rah-rah pop songs: Toni Basil’s ‘Mickey.’

Producer Martin Solveig’s fingerprints are all over the single. There’s more than one portion of the song that references his work with the Canadian dance-pop group Dragonette … particularly the infectious ‘Boys & Girls.’

Boys & Girls – Martin Solveig ft. Dragonette by djmajr

The more out-of-left-field reference comes from the song that rang through our head when Madonna sings ‘and dance the night away.’ It sounds identical to the la-la-la-la refrain from The B-52′s 1983 single ‘Song for a Future Generation.’ Don’t believe us? Listen around :46 below and tell us that Fred Schneider and Co. don’t have a case:

03 Song For A Future Generation by 401K Music Inc

And can Madge borrow from herself? She does a bit here. There are tinges of ‘American Life’ lyrically, especially when she references pricey Burgandy wine, similar to her much-criticized pilates callout in the 2003 single.

And of course Madonna’s callout to ‘my lucky star’ in the second verse is a good enough excuse for us to go back to this classic:
