Her Madgesty has reportedly brought in more than $120 million from her European tour and has sold out 16 of the 17 shows.
And now, her madgesty herself, Madonna, is getting ready for the American start of her Sticky & Sweet outing.
She’s got five sold out shows just in the New York area!
According to her tour schedule her first concert will start on October 4th in New Jersey and will have four shows in Madison Square Garden.
According to news reports her show includes about “3500 wardrobe elements, 36 clothing designers, 100 pairs of kneepads, 12 trampolines, 69 guitars, a traveling personnel of 250, five keyboards for Kevin Antunes the musical director, three members of the Russian Romani (Gypsy) group the Kolpakov Trio, 18 dancers, and one set of Swavorski crystal encrusted ear phones.”
Aside from her extravagant concert, she’s also been receiving great reviews.
The London Times said, “In the premiere league of song-and-dance spectaculars, the queen of pop remains unrivalled and undefeated.”
The successful tour will then head out of NY and tour North America with stops in cities like Boston, Chicago, Denver, Toronto, Montreal, and ending in Miami on November 26th. She will also have a South American tour where she will head to Mexico City, where two shows sold 100,000 tickets in just three hours.
A fourth show had to be recently added in Buenos Aires as her other stops in South America are already sold out.

This one is a little bit hard to believe but based on the first day sales, Making the Band winners Danity Kane will have the number 1 album on next week’s charts as reported by HITS magazine. Their record is expected to sell anywhere between 250,000 to 275,000 units. Really? I’m wondering how this happened. A reality show winner is on top of the charts. The other top debut is said to be rapper Flo Rida with expected sales of 70,000 to 80,000 units to be moved. I’m no longer wondering why the record business is headed for the crapper, nay, in the crapper already.
Well, it was another episode of The Miley and Mandy Show on YouTube, featuring Miley Cyrus and her bff Mandy Jiroux. The two discussed their fave colors and boyfriends and their religion. They both emphatically answered, “Yes, we are” to a question of whether they are Christian.
Miley said, “We love Jesus! Jesus rocks! She dances for Jesus. I sing, dance, and act for Jesus! Now that I think about it, I do everything for Jesus. We make the YouTube videos for Jesus. We’re all about it.”
No surprise….she also quoted the Bible on the Oprah show a few months ago.
He may have been kicked out of American Idol early but that’s not going to stop former stripper David Hernandez’s hopes of making a name for himself. It’s being said that David has gone to the Big Apple to audition for the cast of Broadway’s ‘Rent’. Paparazzi caught up to the Idol castoff and they say that he seemed a little bewildered by the big city. He kept asking random strangers for help finding a car and even asked a Hasidic Jew whether he was a ‘Pilgrim’. Ok. Moving on, there’s no word whether he got to his audition or is already in. The Broadway production of ‘Rent’ ends its amazing 12-year run on June 1.
Tokio Hotel is returning to the States! Bill, Tom, Gustav & Georg have decided to come back to tour the US sooner than expected.

If music pre-sales was a high jump competition, Madonna would win without any contest. Just a few days ago, the Queen of Pop’s upcoming album ‘Hard Candy’ was at the number 18 spot on the Amazon best sellers list for CDs and it’s not even out until the end of April. Just yesterday, the album is already at number 2. It’s not quite the top, but she’s getting there. Mariah Carey managed to move up on the list as well. She’s at number 40 – a far distance from Madonna but at least she’s already on the list. Her record will be out a full 2 weeks before Madonna’s and she wasn’t even on the top 100 of the list a couple of days ago.
The Jonas Brothers show their patriotic side when they sand the National Anthem on the South Lawn at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington DC on Monday morning for the annual White House Easter Egg Roll. 20-year old Kevin, 18-year old Joe and 15-year old Nick belted out their best rendition of the song as thousands, including the Cat in the Hat, Tweety Bird, Charlie Brown, Mickey Mouse, Snoopy, Clifford the Big Red Dog and the official White House Easter bunnies, watched them perform. It may seem like I’m kidding but really, those are the so-called people in attendance. It is a kids’ event after all.
Madonna’s rep Liz Rosenberg recently went on the record to say that the Queen of Pop and her hubby Guy Ritchie are still happily married. Everyone knows not to believe anything until they see proof and Madonna is more than happy to give us that. She and her director husband arrived arm-in-arm at upscale Italian restaurant Harry’s in Mayfair, London on Tuesday. It looks like they’re still spending time together. But again, I need some hard proof first. They could just be doing this for publicity’s sake. There were a lot of momentous events that Guy could have showed up with Madonna but he didn’t yet he chooses to go out to dinner with her on some random night after a lot of rumors came out about the 2 splitting up. Suspicious.

Eminem was once a rapper, tried to be an actor and is now wanting to be an author. The Detroit native is working on a tell-all memoir which will include details on his life story, photos, journal notes, hand-drawn sketches and lyrics. This would have been hot news if only it happened 5 years ago!
‘Eminem: The Way I Am’ is to be published by Orgion Books. The book is scheduled for release in the UK on October 16 of this year. Eminem’s team is said to be none too happy with the leak of this info as they claim it’s still a work in progress.

X-Factor champion Leona Lewis has already taken the UK by storm and is even one of the best selling artists of 2007 on that side of the pond. Now, she’s set to release her debut album ‘Spirit’ in the US on April 28th. And she has some extra things in store.
Sources say that the singer is currently busy in the studio recording two brand new songs for the US release. One song, ‘Forgive Me’, is by singer/producer Akon and another is ‘Misses Glass’ by cutting edge producers/writers Madd Scientist and Rock City. Additionally, Leona has also re-recorded the video for ‘Bleeding Love’.

Parents everywhere are breathing a collective sigh of relief. Maybe Christmas isn’t ruined after all.
It has been announced that Miley Cyrus, a.k.a. Hannah Montana, is extending her extremely popular tour and adding 14 more shows. The shows begin January 11 in Detroit and go until January 31 in Miami.
Disney says it was an overwhelming response from fans that made them decide to add the additional shows. I’m sure it had nothing to do with the fact that it’s a huge revenue maker.
One downfall - the Jonas Brothers, who are touring with Miley, will not be on the added shows. Instead, Aly & AJ will join Miley from January 11 to January 24, with another “special guest” appearing for the remainder of the shows.
Tickets go on sale this Saturday!!!
Mom-to-be Lily Allen and her Chemical Brothers boyfriend Ed Simons were spotted doing some last minute Christmas shopping in Notting Hill in London on Wednesday. The Sun was first to report that the British singer was pregnant and she recently just announced that she IS pregnant with her first child.
Lily’s rep released a statement on Wednesday saying “I am pleased to confirm that Lily Allen and her boyfriend, Ed Simons, are expecting their first child. However, as the pregnancy is at a very, very early stage, the couple ask that you respect their privacy, as the health of Lily and their child is their paramount concern.”
And this time it’s not a rumor. It’s just not the Spears you’d expect.
Britney comes up clean in this one. Instead, the mother-to-be is Britney’s teenage sister and Nickelodeon star Jamie Lynn. She has announced that she is pregnant at age 16 by 18 or 19 years old boyfriend Casey Aldridge.
Most of Jamie Lynn’s fans are in the “tween” age of 8-12. She is the star of Nickelodeon’s show Zoey 101. Parents are concerned about the lack of solid female teen role models for their children.
Well, at least she has her big sister Britney for advice….on how NOT to raise children. Her family says they like Casey Aldridge and believe he will stand by Jamie Lynn and take care of this baby.
