Madonnalicious on EW’s countdown of 25 best fansites
The online website of Entertainment Weekly picked the most essential sites for TV, music, and film buffs in their “Best of the Web” report, and also compiled a list of 25 Essential Fansites.
“They’re sites made by fans for fans” – EW writes – “obsessively tracking every episode, casting announcement, and live gig from our favorite TV shows, films, and musicians. EW whipped up the 25 web pages that truly put the .com (or .net, or .org) in community, and fellow fansite Madonnalicious.com is once again on charge of representing the world of Madonna fans online with a stunning #10 in the Top 25 list.
Here is what EW has to say about Clare’s site (you rock, girl!)
• 10. Madonna – madonnalicious.com
• Launch Date January 2003
• What You’ll Find
London-based blogger Clare puts a decidedly European spin on Her Madgesty’s comings and goings, from German tabloid scans to an archived BBC audio interview with Madonna’s producer/collaborator Stuart Price.
• Why It’s Essential Madonnalicious’ basic HTML isn’t pretty, but the site is incredibly meticulous – from constant updates on the Material Woman’s estimated $120 million deal with Live Nation to camera-phone snapshots from the U.K. premiere of the new Desperately Seeking Susan stage show, all accompanied by Clare’s chatty, conversational musings. There are also reams of vintage and obscure photos with handy links should you feel compelled to download a 1987 Madonna-starring Mitsubishi ad.
