Books: Encyclopedia Madonnica 20th Anniversary Edition
M IllustratedA message from our friend Matthew Rettenmund:

It's been almost 20 years since I published "Encyclopedia Madonnica", so what better time to create a sequel? I'm using Kickstarter to fund a self-published follow-up, one I want to be all-inclusive of Madonna's life and career. That means I'll have to overhaul existing entries as well as write new ones to cover (almost) everything she's been up to for the past two decades.

Books can't take the place of up-to-the-minute Web sites like MadonnaTribe, and the first edition was kind of like a Google search of Madonna spiced up with my own take on things. But I think a sequel in 2015 (planned spring publication) can instead serve as a sort of record of all the things we, as fans, have cherished about Madonna, and all the things society has loved, hated or just plain noticed about her. It says something about our culture that Madonna's grills were such a big deal...but what? That's part of what my job will be in writing the updated version.

I'll also do something I wasn't able to do in 1994 when I was first writing the book - I'll seek out interviews with a host of Madonna consorts and collaborators, and if my Kickstarter is a success, I should be able to release many unpublished photos, too.

I would like to invite Madonna's fans to support this project, which in turn supports Madonna: There's only one queen, and the world needs reminding!

Thank you, MadonnaTribe, and thank you to everyone who decides to make a pledge on Kickstarter. My goal will be to under promise and over deliver.

Madonna aiming for 2015 release, 'having a lot of fun' with Diplo
New AlbumFrom the article by Keith Caulfield on

Madonna's been hard at work on her upcoming new album - as evidenced by her prolific posts on Instagram - and is planning for it to be released in 2015, according to a representative.

Among those she's working with is super-producer Diplo, who has turned up in multiple photos on the diva's Instagram account. It's unclear if Diplo (who recently graced the cover of Billboard magazine) is materializing as the album's primary producer, but it would seem that he could play a significant role in the project.

When asked specifically about Diplo and his involvement in the album, Madonna's manager Guy Oseary told Billboard, "She's currently in the studio with Diplo and having a lot of fun," but didn't offer any further clues about the project. Alas.

In his Billboard magazine cover feature, Diplo said that he's had multiple studio sessions with Madonna that have resulted in at least three "amazing, smashes." "I got really lucky because she's been really understanding and open to my ideas. And she's like, 'I hate sleeping…'"

Madonna's next album is due out on Interscope Records, and -- based on a glance at her Instagram feed -- may also feature collaborations with Toby Gad, MoZella, S1, Ariel Rechtshaid, Avicii, Natalia Kills and Martin Kierszenbaum. On last week’s Pop Shop Podcast, Kierszenbaum — the head of Cherrytree Records who also records as Cherry Cherry Boom Boom — told Billboard that he was “very proud” of the work he completed with Madonna in the studio.

“It was a real privilege to write with Madonna, and with Natalia Kills,” said Kierszenbaum. “We ended up writing about seven songs. We were meant to only be there with her for a couple of days, but we really distilled it down to a very traditional writing session. It was just me on the piano, and Madonna and Natalia Kills around it, and we just wrote songs the old-fashioned way, just playing the piano and singing. … I don’t know what she’s gonna use from the sessions, but it was a tremendous honor.”

Books: The Mammoth Book of Madonna
M IllustratedA new book about the Queen of Pop is coming out next year. Written by Michelle Morgan, The Mammoth Book of Madonna is described as a one-of-a-kind look at Madonna's career just in time for the 30th anniversary of her The Virgin Tour.

"Unlike other biographies, this book will not focus on the scandals about botox and boy toys, but instead include reviews, interviews, commentary, and Madonna’s own reflections that highlight her incredible success," the volume's description on the pre-order page says. "Including a specially designed cover and beautiful, full-color photography throughout, the volume will shed new light on Madonna’s videos, books, tours, fashion, and charity work for her millions of fans around the world."

Quotes on Madonna: Madonna the gangster
Live from London"Imagine reinventing yourself like that? It’s so brave. It’s like a snake that sheds its skin all the time. It’s pretty hard to do that. And she’s the nicest woman but really ‘gangster’ with it. I wouldn’t be surprised if she grew up in the ’hood. But above all she’s a business woman, 100 percent."

Singer (and Material Girl) Rita Ora, talking with the Evening Standard for the launch of her new sports range at Adidas Originals London in Faubert's Place.
