Let's have dinner - but you're paying!
Live from BrazilMadonna met graffiti artist Simone Sapienza aka Siss last Tuesday, backstage at Morumbi Stadium right before her MDNA show in São Paulo.

Simone was the only woman among the Johnnie Walker's Keep Walking project finalist, and it's not by chance that her own work was a tribute to the women's strenght itself.

Siss adapted one of her signature graffiti art, creating a Madonna Wonder Woman holding two spray cans, replacing the iconic face of Linda Carter with the one of the Queen of Pop herself.
"My work is connected to women's conditions," Siss told Brazilian newspaper Folha. "I like strong women, who stand for what they believe is right." Siss used some Wonder Woman sentences on what became the cover of Madonna's "Superstar" single: "let's have dinner!" is written on her shorts, and "but you're paying!" is on the whip. Simple and right to point, as Siss likes it.

Giovanni Bianco, Madonna's art director and collaborator for eight years said: "Siss was very sensitive in capturing the song's idea and Madonna's pop world in her language. She captured something from the streets and from Madonna. It was very clever."

As previously reported on MadonnaTribe, the "Superstar" 2-track CD single was distributed for free with each copy of the Folha de S.Paulo last Monday.

The Eddie Amador Remix, the b-side to the single, can be downloaded for free as Madonna & Johnnie Walker are treating their fans with 10,000 free downloads of the remix, available until December 12. Visit UOL and get it now.

Madonna checks out Rio's Carnival
Live from BrazilMadonna has enthusiastically embraced Brazil's spectacular Carnival in Rio and even wanted to try some samba moves herself during parades overnight, Brazilian media reported Monday.

The US entertainer attended the spectacular shows with her Brazilian toyboy boyfriend, model Jesus Luz, her two children and a coterie of US friends.

Other celebrities, including Paris Hilton, "300" star Gerard Butler, and Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger were also in town to catch the festivities rolling out in summer heatwave conditions.

According to Globo, the Brazilian television broadcaster of Rio's parades, Madonna tried to join in on the fun in an overnight parade, but the frenzy she triggered among cameramen and security agents as she got close to the event prevented her from busting out some samba steps.

Instead, she watched from VIP boxes along the parade route, the guest of Rio governor Sergio Cabral and a Brazilian beer maker.

The parades were to continue to early Tuesday, with the winning samba school announced on Wednesday.

Madonna helps Brazilian kids
Live from BrazilMadonna has secured a $7 million donation from Brazil's richest man to help set up a children's charity in the South American country.
She met with wealthy business people and politicians during her recent five-day trip to the South American country and managed to secure donations for Success for Kids from Brazil's richest man, Eike Batista.

Madonna was invited to the father-of-two's estate on the island of Angra Dos Reis on Saturday to discuss the project after Batista agreed to fund a large proportion of her latest charitable venture.
During dinner, Batista - who has an estimated $7.5 billion fortune - offered to give Madonna $7 million after asking how much more she needed to set up her charity's initial projects, leaving the pop superstar in tears.

At the meal, Madonna declared her love for the country, saying: "I worship Brazil."

This new report partly corrects the news from the AFP which reported that Madonna was raising money for her Malawi charity, while it appears that donations will be destined to a new project based in Brazil.

She tells New York Post gossip column PageSix, "I am going there strictly for fundraising and humanitarian purposes.”

The singer is also sponsoring a documentary on the children living in slums.
