Madonna’s daughter, Lourdes, has caused quite the Web chatter these days. Between her collaboration on a clothing line with mama M and Macy’s and her shot to fashionista stardom, people seem to think she’s on the path to becoming a model, singer, actress and/or blogosphere fixture. Well, German magazine Quality has picked up on this little trender and graced her image (surely a paparazzi still, not an actual photographed picture) on their July issue, and with it we wonder, in the great game of magazine cover subjects, does a teen of a pop star really sell? Maybe it piques curiosity…or maybe she’s just big in Europe. What do you think of Lourdes’ cover debut?

shot-by-shot remake of “Vogue” revealed, will be an all-out Madonna extravaganza, featuring such hit songs as “Express Yourself,” “Like a Virgin,” “Like a Prayer,” and “4 Minutes.” In the episode, Mr. Schuester asks the girls in glee club to select various Madonna tracks to sing, and the episode already has one major supporter — the Material Girl herself. “I think Mr. Schuester is very cute,” Madonna said in a statement to Fox, “and I’m glad he’s doing such a good job empowering the girls.” And… that’s all, Madonna? No comment on what you make of the show’s interpretation of your music? No praise for Glee‘s young ensemble cast? And no mention of the pure awesomeness that is Jane Lynch? Grumble, grumble…Next Tuesday’s Glee, as Jane Lynch’s
Well, maybe Madge is simply going to let the episode speak sing for itself. PopWatchers, how pumped are you to see an hour’s worth of Madonna goodness? And do you think Glee will do justice to the pop star’s catalog, or does the whole tribute run the risk of coming off as hokey?
I love Sue Sylvester’s shot-by-shot recreation of Madonna’s “Vogue” video (embedded after the jump), but part of me wishes she’d put even more of herself in it. My favorite bits are the Sue snarl that accompanies the choreographed elbow at 1:50, her pushing away the hairstylist at 2:07, “Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire, Sue Sylvester, dance on air” at 2:25, and “Lauren, Katherine, Lana, too, Will Schuester, I hate you” (followed by Kurt’s confused look) at 2:33. I suppose they needed to establish that it was a an all-out remake of the video, so they didn’t want to deviate too soon. (Jane Lynch’s dancing at 1:38 is priceless by itself.) And the bits they did tweak toward the end didn’t feel forced. Did it live up to your expectations, exceed them, or leave you wanting more? READ FULL STORY
This new commercial for Glee‘s April 13 return, featuring Lea Michele’s Rachel belting out a Broadway-flavored version of “Like a Prayer,” presumably from the upcoming all-Madonna episode, gives a little taste of everything I love about the girl. Michele’s huge voice, born-to-be-on-stage persona, adorable comedic half-smile, and smokin’ hot, half-size-too-small school girl sweater dress all serve as reminders that she alone is reason enough to for me to keep watching Glee. (And yes, the sprinkling of awesome Sue Sylvesterisms certainly adds to the allure.) READ FULL STORY
After high profile-stints as the face of luxury labels like Dolce & Gabbana, it was only a matter of time before Madonna stepped behind the scenes to design her own label, and lo and behold, it was announced today that the Material Girl will be launching her very own fashion brand, MG icon, with Iconix Brand Group, Inc., starting with a juniors line for Macy’s this summer.
Why on earth would she start her new design career with a juniors line? Well, the inspiration came from her 13-year-old daughter Lourdes, who, judging by these pictures, has a raging interest in fashion herself. The aptly titled “Material Girl” line will be unveiled this August and include apparel, footwear, handbags, and jewelry priced from $12-40.
A low-priced line bucks the trend of high-end designers starting big and introducing diffusion lines later down the line, so it’s a bit perplexing that Madonna would follow the lead of someone like, say, Jennifer Lopez, whose J.Lo-brand has been at Macy’s for years.
This being the queen of Pop, I would’ve liked to have seen her start out with something a bit more abstract, since she is an artist after all. As December 2008 ads for Louis Vuitton proved, lady M certainly knows how to work her couture.
What do you guys think of Madonna’s venture into the fashion world? Would you buy something with her stamp of approval on it?

I generally don’t get into telethons. I mean, if I’m going to give, I’m just going to give—I don’t need a cheesy Regis Philbin or whoever trying to cajole me into donating dollars while Howie Mandel demonstrates how many different ways he can wash his hands and Goldie Hawn revives a forgettable sketch from Laugh-In.
But I must say: This Hope for Haiti Now telethon tonight is sounding like something that I can’t miss, especially now that divas extraordinaire Beyoncé and Madonna have come on board. Looks like B is gonna hit the stage in London, and M will be in NYC. Yes! Loving it. I’m in. And I’ll probably text in even more money than I already have.
In case you were wondering, those already slated to perform tonight at 8 p.m. on nearly ever network include Christina Aguilera, Taylor Swift, Stevie Wonder, Justin Timberlake, Mary J., J-Hud, and Bruce Springsteen. Pretty A-list, clearly.
But what about you, PopWatchers? Does the prospect of Beyoncé and Madonna on screen entice you to tune in tonight? Will it entice you to give more money — or just enjoy the performances without forking over any dough? Were there other artists that immediately made tonight’s telethon a must watch/must give?

In this week’s episode of Sound Bites: The late-night hosts react to the Letterman situation, The Office has a wedding party and everybody comes…down the aisle, our Twitter followers go Swimfan levels of crazy for Glee, Jacko comes back to life on South Park, and…sandwiches. Sentences? SANDWICHES. Plus: I stick to my #1 policy: When there’s a will to relate anything/everything to Arrested Development, there’s a way. Can you blame me? Has anyone in this family ever even seen a chicken? Press play below.
The NY Post‘s Page Six is reporting today that the nuns of the Convent of the Sacred Heart, a Catholic girls school on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, are none-too-pleased with the antics of their former student, Stefani Germanotta, a.k.a. Lady Gaga. Specifically, the Post found that the sisters were appalled at Gaga’s blood-soaked performance piece at the VMAs last week. (The nuns want their MTV, do they?)
It got me thinking — aside from ‘duh’ — about other pop provocateurs who started out life as Catholic schoolgirls (or boys). Could it be that a solid, strict Catholic upbringing is almost necessary for the kind of intense, life-long acting out that rock ‘n roll requires? Madonna, of course, went to Catholic school at one point. Help me out and prove my theory — who else?
