Madonna is coming to London, there are pics of her inside the flight taken by passengers must be insane having M walk past you!

She looks great too...people are speculating that she may do V Fest this summer (as it coincides with her birthay and rumours of her doing a festival to launch new material)

i wonder what she is up to? are the boys in tow? perhaps she is escorting them to london so they can spend time with guy? one of her recent posts came with the tag "getting ready for summer fun!" so why london?!

she's clearly up to something, but what exactly is unclear, apart from her teasers we all know about.

in other news, alicia key signs with guy oseary to co-manage her career.

Been having a very HARD CANDY day......sounds so fresh for summer days, so many memories with the album I lvoe the themes across the album and how she nailed her higher pitches...I also love the production mix of tribal/afrikaan rhythms some retro pop/disco vibes and synthpop....very fresh

And who knows? Maybe she will be promiting summer long? we shall soon see.

New pictures of Madonna here in London.

http://allaboutmadonna.com/2014/07/p...ly-19-2014.php

She looks fantastic!

Does anyone think there is a Stevie Nicks vibe to the lyrics of Messiah? Like the references to sorcerers and magic? I've always wanted Madonna to do a Stevie inspired look with long wavy blonde hair and flowing gypsy like dresses? What do you think? It would be a little different for her. Stevie is to me one of the most iconic female performers. The other day I heard Gypsy by Fleetwood Mac in a store. It moves me everytime. I think it's one of the great songs of all time.

I love STevie.....I think M would definitely rock that spiritual/witchcraft influenced melody....In fact Witch House is an area i would have adored M to cover as a genre (a la grimes/Charli XCX styles) and potentially still could have?

I would adore Madonna to have a tougher imagery influenced with the next era and album....Mind you she could nail that in a dress too...battle armour love her looks of late....I am so very excited.

And yeah MESSIAH does seem to have references to spirtuality and magic and sorcerers and witchcraft elements....really excited for it i am into all things supernatural so that will be yet another covered area yay!

Funny enough i rewatched a Charmed episode recently that had "Planets of the Unvierse" used in it and thought WOW if M did something like that

Yes, I'm really liking this whole witchcraft/magic/supernatural idea. I think it's a great imagery for her to explore that she hasn't done too much of before.
I really like this artist Zola Jesus. She has explored those kind of darker and more magical type of themes. She has a new album Taiga coming out this fall. She has a great new single Dangerous Days, which is more pop and accessible than some of her stuff and which I could actually see Madonna singing.

Think I best check her out

Lykke Li is another who kinda explores these themes and turning into the Pop world...she eatured on David Lynch (yes the director/filmmaker) last album on a bonus track which was very Twink Peak-ish )) I can see M exploring these themes.

Loved seeing the image of M and Yoko at the grammys earlier this year really had me thinking YEAHS this is the year Madonna will just go all out there...and I truly hope so!

oh my, the fail are at it again. the original headline was "she's so vein", haven't they been peddling this non story about her hands for over a decade already? madonna doesn't wear gloves and gets a parking ticket, oh what drama, hold the front page.

this story did make me laugh though, typical madge. does anyone know why she's here yet? the second story suggests the elder kids are in tow and "the sun" link has a picture of her at the airport with her guitar.

Yes, I thought the album would be finished by now. I read that Diplo has some dub versions of their songs that he may play at his dj gigs so they must be done. It would be great if she did a festival, but isn't festival season almost over? But I guess there's still time for her to do something. She doesn't come to London too much anymore so something must be up.

Lmfao @ the Daily Mail, same old boring veiny hands story, what's their beef? She's 56 in 3 weeks or so not 26 and she's no fat on her body hardly so what do they expect?

As for the air travel story surely she can afford first class tickets for the whole family? Or else stay in ordinary class with them.

I bet those stewardesses were mighty pissed off with her.

Well i am not sure really...it has been hot tipped she may premiere new material at a live music event.....and it looks like she is doing something musical so who knows?

I would ador eif she did V Fest her birthday weekend and launch new material...lead son/video out that week leading up to it and BAM wahoo, Itunes Festival is acros 30 days in Sept and i think half have been announced so they may save M for a later announcement? Not sure. They must not leave it too long however.

But i would assume the album is done...unless it is being used in a video she is filming in London???? I have no idea....time shall tell.

well we all know madge is rather careful when it comes to money, so that didn't surprise me tbh. it does sound like she was behaving like a bit of diva, but perhaps the kids were booked in a separate class due to lack of availability in first class, who knows. her behaviour was hardly in the same league as naomi campbell for instance though.

OK...so we have had a MADONNAMANIA overdrive thus far

We have heard her re-record La Isla especially for Diplo for his Dub sets recently as exclusively previwewd for Annie Mac there!

He said he only managed to get her to sing one of her hit sbecause they have been hitting it hard in the studio...sounds really fun she seems to be having so much fun with who she is recording with which i love! Makes for great chemistry.

Ok and then we have had the London gospel Choir singing on MESSIAH as she shwocased two days ago with Ariel Rechtshaid there snapping pics off of the session....that is INSANE...so so glad he is heavily involved too and those that lsitened out...the last second showcased the sound/direction of MESSIAH it sounds like it will be very uptempo driven ....lovely sneaky peaky

Also various sites the past month now have compiled a "what we know so far" NME, Attitude, Q now Digital Spy today...so yeah we are slowly but surely hitting fever pitch.....really cannot wait for more teasers...it sounds as though we are getting very close to it but a little while to go yet.

Ok so i think the album is definitely in its final stage because

How insane will this be! Sounds like it will continue tradition of a haunting final song for the album <3

LOVE the EROTICA album love today...all over new sites and magazine pages/websites they are showcasing the two demos from the album that leaked in full last night

"You Are The One"

and
"Shame"

both very different and great rough cuts recorded with Pettibone...continuing some of the House/Latin Pop/Deep House elements that the album showcased.

Both also I feel are earleir recordings....probs summer 1991 when recording first started as Madonna sings in a very higher pitch than the final album songs....but they are still good.

Has anyone seen this fan created cover where Madonna is dressed as Joan of Arc? It's really cool. That might be an interesting look for the next era? What about a medieval Madonna!

Surprisingly quiet on here considering the rumours and speculation circulating.

We have -

Madonna being heavily speculated as being a main performer to commemorate 25 years since the fall of the Berlin Wall...which i very much would love to see her do...it will be so relevant for this era all the moreso!

There is also Rita Ora instagramming Madonna potentially performing at this years VMAS! "Madonna where you at?, VMAs, MTV, LA" indeed hmmmmmm and she was sportin a blonde ponytail a la- Blond AMbition!

Hmmmmmmm MESSIAH debut late August live performance?? Lady gaga did with Applause and Katy Perry did with Roar as a main promo event....would be great to see her on her homeland...MTV and showcase what a real pop music event will be and with masses of audiences watching it is quite the way to do it and really easily enter this current era

And of course on her birthday Madonna is having MADONNADAY to get fans posting in various outlets what freedom means to them as a "gift" to her....very intriguing.

The latest news is Madonna is going to Ibiza. She's there with her creative team including photographers Mert and Marcus, her hairstylist, and the people who do her visual stuff as well as fashion designer Riccardo Tisci Not sure if it's a party for her birthday coming up or they are doing the album cover.

Well she posted a pic today of her un her undies and dress hung up in the bath so hmmm?? and hse said getting ready for her birthday errrm?? this far in advance?

I had a feeling Mert & Marcus were involved when a few months ago she played the album thus far to them...so i definitely think something visual is going down...but for Ibiza?? hmmm maybe she will do first video/album artwork and also party across the same few days.

It also rules out last minute addition to the V Fest lineup as was speculated...hmmm I just wonder what is going down.

I would aos rule out the VMas with Rita Ora...just using her name for promo for her own hair :-/

I saw that pic on Instagram, she's not leaving a lot to the imagination is she?

And she seems to be preparing for her birthday well in advance, oh well at least we know she waxed!

she is primed and ready for action.

Also it is worth notinv ever since Kylies performance at the Commonwealth hr sales have had a massive increase the past few days ....also her Kiss Me Once album is great IMO took me some time butshe warmed me to it

So it just shows promo is still key...you dont need to be on telly every week as a name but getting music out there and showcasing why you are of such status is KEY and that showcases it.

So I genuinely hope this is not wasted....so many people try and say "oh she is irrelevant, kids dont like her" etc....well in a world where THAT audience is so fickle anyway with Bieber/Katy Perry/Miley IN right now? then who wants to be in that crowd? Let the music and artistry stand out above fickle music buyers because "it is hot right now"

Madonna ahs more than proven herself and knowing these music buyers.....they will lap it up if it is broadcasted to them large scale anyway relevance is in the eye of the beholder...if you arent a fan why would you rate it when its not marketed to your tastes you know?

Here's a picture of Madonna and her boyfriend in France. Not so sure about the floral dress look. Is she going more conservative for the next era?
