MADONNA as Daenerys Targaryen! | madonna | Happy Purim!!!!! All Hail All Queens! ##certainty | http://bit.ly/1gvRXQ7

MADONNA participated in a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) last night, in which she fielded a whole bunch of questions from fans in real time. (She hasn’t completely become “one of us,” though; don’t fret. When asked if she was typing the answers herself, she responded, “i’m vacuuming the housekeeper is typing.”)
That sardonic dryness pervaded the entire Q&A. No vagaries or platitudes, so prevalent these days among the pop star set, here; Madonna, refreshingly, responded with the caustic directness of your most blunt friend at Sunday brunch. […]
She would “love to work” with Daft Punk; she’s “just waiting for them to return [her] call.”
The most recent dream she remembers having? “Brad Pitt and I were living together and there was a small blonde child in the bed. Sorry Angelina, it was only a dream.”
How does she calm down when she gets angry? “I dont its a hot mess.”
When asked, saucily, “Where should I put these hydrangeas?” Madonna responded, “up your ass.”
If she could “turn” any gay man straight, it would be Frank Ocean (she also cited Frank and Jay-Z’s “Oceans” as her favorite song of the moment).
When asked a question that began “If you were a gay man…” she immediately responded “i am a gay man.”’
Would she ever “wear a disguise and go to Walmart”? “id just go to walmart and not wear a disguise.”
To a ballsy fan who asked what they need to do to score a date, she responded with the simple “send photo.”
And in perhaps her most succinct message for the current crop of pop stars (and one they’d take well to heed), Madonna had this to say when asked why she thinks some people “have such a hard time wrapping their head” around her actions: “because i don’t explain everything nor do i feel the need to.”

The A-list was circling now, wanting a taste of D’Angelo’s authentic flavor. When Madonna turned 39, she asked him to sing “Happy Birthday” at her party. One press report had her sitting on his lap and French-kissing him. In fact, two sources say that ultimately D rebuffed her advances at another gathering not long after. At that event, the sources say, Madonna walked over and told a woman sitting next to D, “I think you’re in my seat.” The woman got up. Madonna sat down and told him, “I’d like to know what you’re thinking.” To which D replied, “I’m thinking you’re rude.”

Madonna & Patti Smith, BFF’s

newsweek | 

In the new movie W.E., which Madonna wrote and directed, Abbie Cornish plays a young woman named Wally Winthrop who’s stuck in a bad marriage, and has a kind of imaginary, sister-sister, platonic affair with Wallis Simpson (Andrea Riseborough), the American woman King Edward VIII fell in love with and abdicated the thrown to marry. “How could any man love a woman so much he’d do that?” Winthrop wonders, as she seeks to find out every thing there is to know about Simpson.

In real life, Madonna has been having her own sister-sister, platonic love affair, with Patti Smith, the 65-year-old godmother of the punk movement.

The two met about a year ago at The Berlin Festival and Madonna instantly felt they were “kindred spirits.”

In December, she invited Smith to the Cinema Society screening of W.E at the Museum of Modern Art.

Smith, it turns out, had been a secret admirer of Madonna’s music, their divergent musical styles being no impediment to mutual respect. “I never compared myself to her,” Smith says, “I just loved her songs and enjoyed dancing to them.” (She is particularly enthralled, for the record, by “Into The Groove.”)

Madonna, it turned out, had been a secret admirer of Smith’s for many years, and had devoured Smith’s best-selling memoir, “Just Kids,” which in 2010 won the National Book Award. (She is particularly enthralled by “Because The Night.”)

There was a fair amount in common, although Smith says she’s no “sociologist.”

Smith booked a one way ticket New York in the late sixties, having taken $32 from a purse she found in a bus station in South Orange, New Jersey. She scrounged around the lower east side (and the outer-buroughs), looking for food and shelter, and did time at the Hotel Chelsea. Her best friend (and for some time, lover) was Robert Mapplethorpe, the artist and photographer with whom she discovered the world before he died from AIDS.

Madonna booked a one way ticket to New York in the in the late seventies, arriving with $35. She scrounged around the lower east side looking for food and shelter, and eventually did time at the Hotel Chelsea. Her best friend during the early years was an artist and designer named Martin Burgoyne, who was gay, discovered the world with her, and then died from AIDS.

There were other similarities: both were iconoclastic artists with a penchant for pushing people’s buttons.

Smith did songs like “Rock N Roll Nigger” and had album covers featuring her hairy armpits.

Record stores refused to stock them.

Madonna did music videos featuring overt-sexual imagery.

MTV refused to play them.

And both women are a strange brew of high and low culture, with a taste that ran from Jean-Luc Godard, Pablo Picasso and Diego Rivera to the sidewalks.

If there’s an essential philosophical difference between Smith and Madonna it’s that Smith really opted out of commercial culture, while Madonna took what she learned on the margins and made it mainstream.

When Madonna got up to give her speech about W.E. at a screening in December, she got positively verklempt upon noting Smith’s presence in the audience. She said it was “humbling” to be in front of Smith, an artist she’d “looked up to,” for many years, a “revolutionary in her work, “a renaissance woman.”

Later, when the movie ended, it was Smith who practically led the standing ovation.

“I loved the film,” Smith says. “I was completely engaged from the first minute. It’s beautifully shot and beautifully cast. I enjoyed the story. The performances are all excellent but Andrea Riseborough’s performance is brilliant.”

The following month, when it made its official debut at The Ziegfeld, Smith was back to see it a second time. “I was invited to see it again and I saw it again. I like to see movies multiple times. I thought Madonna did an excellent job. To me it stands on its own. I don’t look it as a Madonna movie. It’s W.E. and I liked it very much.
