Madonna Nude Photo Auction

So a nude photo of Madonna taken 30 years ago goes to auction next month.

The full frontal shot was taken before Madonna hit the big time and needed a few bucks to get her through the week.  It appeared in Playboy in 1985, so if you still have a copy then you do not need to bid in the auction.

Madonna was paid $25 at the time and the expected auction price is the the $10,000 region.

So the question is.  Will Madonna be putting in a bid?

Remember she is nude, so NSFW.

Guy Ritchie richer

Guy Ritchie is rich

Guy Ritchie is now $48 million richer because Madonna wants to keep one of their homes.

Madonna wants to keep the house they owned together in Marylebone, London so for a quiet life and a big pile of Benjamins, Guy has signed on the line.

Guy just wants to get on with his life and spend time with the kids.  $48 million is going to make that a bit easier for him.

Madonna sues British Tabloid

Madonna has successfully sued the Mail on Sunday after they printed photographs of her wedding to Guy Richie.

Madonna is looking for damages in excess of $7.5million after a judge ruled that the newspaper had breached her privacy and copyright by printing photos of her 2000 wedding in Scotland.

The photos were given to her by photographer Jean-Baptiste Mondino as a gift. He said Madonna put the photographs in an album that she kept at her home in Beverly Hills, California.

The Mail on Sunday paid $7500 to an interior designer who Madonna said stole the photographers from her home in Beverly Hills.

A ruling on compensation will be made in the new near with Madonna saying any money she wins will be given to her charity Raising Malawi.

Madonna gets a 'quickie'

Madonna and Guy Ritchie have been granted a 'quickie' divorce.

Neither was in London's High Court to hear that a preliminary decree of divorce had been granted.

Madonna filed for divorce and cited "unreasonable behavior" on Ritchie's part.  I bet that was because he insisted on watching the television while pouring milk on his Cheerios.  No wonder she filed, who could put up with that sort of behavior day after day.  The woman is a saint!

So now we watch to see who they move onto next.  Top of the list is Alex Rodriguez for her and Kelly Reilly for him.

Madonna Face of Louis Vuitton

Madonna is rumored to be the new face of Louis Vuitton.

Madonna who is currently in the middle of divorcing Guy Richie and a World Tour (who says women can't multi-task!) is said to be the new face for their Spring 2009 campaign.

Louis Vuitton, as I am sure you all know, design luxury luggage amongst other things.  Maybe Madonna has taken this gig, so she can speed the separation by giving Guy some designer luggage.

Madonna to divorce

Rumors abound that the marriage of Madonna and Guy Richie is officially over.

Madonna's London based spokesperson has made no comment on the rumor which is a possible indicator that the marriage is over because when the rumors surfaced in June a denial was issued.

The couple who married in December 2000 in Scotland have two sons, while Madonna has a daughter from a previous relationship.

I am sure that Madonna is a savvy enough woman to have a pre-nup in place, so this is not likely to be a messy affair.

Madonna not Sarah Palin's BFF

Madonna confirmed her Democratic leanings by having a go at Sarah Palin.

During her concert at Meadowlands, New Jersey, Madonna shouted to the crowd, "Sarah Palin can't come to my party. Sarah Palin can't come to my show. It's nothing personal." She went on to say, "Here's the sound of Sarah Palin's husband's snowmobile when it won't start," followed by a loud screeching noise.

You would think that with such a vast back catalog of songs Madonna would not have time to vent her politcal feelings at a concert.  If she wants to get political could she do it in the correct forum.  I really don't think people pay huge sums of money to go and see Madonna vent her political spleen. I am pretty sure they go for the songs and spectacle that is a Madonna concert.   

At a concert on the UK leg of her world tour Madonna made her feelings known regarding John McCain.  To find out more click here.

Madonna sued

Madonna is being sued for unpaid movie debts.

The lawsuit states that Madonna borrowed over $400,000 along with her manager Guy Oseary to finance Maverick Girls, a 2006 film starring Hilary Duff.

The money was lent by Jay Dykes Jr, of Dykes and Dykes LLC who also says he did not get the promised co-producer credit.

I have to say who in their right mind would lent Madonna money for a film.  She does not have the best track record.   In music she is the business, but where movies are concerned even I would keep my money in my pocket!

Is Madonna a John McCain fan?

Well Madonna kicked off her Sticky and Sweet tour in Cardiff, Wales at the weekend.  During a performance of Get Stupid, images flashed on the screen of Robert Mugabe, Adolf Hitler and John McCain.  So it would be safe to say that Madonna does not support John McCain. 

To reinforce the point the next set of images to flash on the screen were Gandhi, John Lennon, Al Gore and Barack Obama.  I think it is safe to say that Madonna believes Barack Obama is the way forward for America.

John McCain did not take this lying down. Tucker Bounds, a McCain campaign spokesman said, "It clearly shows that when it comes to supporting Barack Obama, his fellow worldwide celebrities refuse to consider any smear or attack off limits."

Madonna adopting again

Madonna is set to adopt another child.  Madonna has renewed her efforts to adopt Mercy James, a three-year-old girl also from Malawi.  Madonna and Guy Richie put the adoption on hold to concentrate on rebuilding their marriage after rumors of an affair with Alex Rodriguez surfaced.

Apparently they now feel strong enough to continue the adoption which is close to being finalized.  This will  increase the Madonna brood to four, still nowhere near the Jolie-Pitts!
