Weekend To-Do List: Harry Potter and the Confessions of the Dancefloor Edition

153254__madonnapotter_lDear readers, I’m throwin’ down a challenge: Please connect Harry Potter and Madge’s Dancefloor in six steps or less. Here’s the catch, though: Each step must provide a good (and viable) entertainment option for one’s weekend. I’ll go first:

1. Madonna’s Confessions on a Dancefloor makes me want to boogie-woogie.

2. Lest we forget, Madonna scored a Golden Globe for her work in Evita, which was directed by Alan Parker…

3. …who also directed Angela’s Ashes, based on the acclaimed novel by Frank McCourt (whose new book, Teacher Man, happens to be out this week).

4. Angela’s Ashes starred Emily Watson, who costarred in Gosford Park with…

5. …Maggie Smith, who graces the screen in this weekend’s likely box-office champ, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (whose characters inspired this particularly jaunty performance by — no joke — Harry Potter and the Hogwarts Dancers). Ch-ch-check it out.

There! It wasn’t easy, but I did it! Now, in the words of Destiny’s Child, ”move, groove, prove you can hang with me” and take the PopWatch Weekend To-Do List Challenge. See you Monday!

    It looks as if Madonna will go down as the BIGGEST RIP OFF ARTIST of all time if Aisha has her day in court!
    On her website Aisha lists all the myriad and various ways Madonna has ripped off other artists and recycled it for her own glory. Lately she has exploited and literally stolen Aisha’s material.
    What a shame. Not surprised though.
    Geeez..can’t believe I was a fan.

    Hahaha, Sara – that’s just fab! You should have seen the velvet coat of doom at the London premiere…
    Anyway: 1) Madonna sampled Abba’s Gimme Gimme Gimme (A Man After Midnight) on the track “Hung Up”
    2) Comedic duo Matt Lucas and David Walliams spoofed ABBA on Rock Profile (special feature on Little Britain series 1 DVD).
    3) Lucas had a cameo role in the UK mini-series Casanova, starring David Tennant.
    4) Tennant plays Barty Crouch Jr. in The Goblet of Fire (and Radcliffe has said he loved him in Casanova).
    Also: 1) Madonna was in a segment of The Hire with Clive Owen.
    2) Owen starred in the BBC show Second Sight, one episode of which guest-starred Tom Felton.
    3) Felton plays Draco Malfoy in Harry Potter.
    Man, I could keep going :P
