Once Again Meghan Markle Speaks Up For Ethical, Sustainable Fashion

Meghan Markle has hit the news again championing her fashion choice with the STAUD sustainable fashion during her African tour. The royal family has always been in the limelight so she has stepped up with her choice in clothing that’s dear to her heart.  Sarah Staudinger, the co-founder of STAUD, was so honored that Meghan chose to wear one of her designs, a recycled nylon dress.

During her visit to the Auwal Mosque with Prince Harry, she wore an olive green shirt dress with a cream-coloured headscarf and flats.  Not only was the look very chic but was made entirely from recycled nylon, showing her need to speak up for an eco-friendly lifestyle.

The designer told the press that the response to Meghan’s choice in clothing has been incredible and has given her great exposure to a much larger audience.  This dress can be pre-ordered for $325.

Zero-Waste Fashion

From the beginning of the tour, her sustainable theme in clothing was apparent with her black and white print dress from Mayamiko.  Mayamiko is an ethical, zero-waste fashion line that uses reclaimed, re-cycled materials along with locally sourced fabrics from Malawi.

Mayamiko has stepped up and trained disadvantaged women in their workshop and many of these women suffer from the HIV pandemic.  Their line of clothing is produced in limited supplies and therefore Meghan’s Dalitso Dress was sold out almost immediately.

Meghan has also worn outfits she has re-cycled from her own closet, such as her blue Veronica Beard shirt dress and her striped Martin Grant maxi dress which she wore on her last tour.

This is not the first time the Duchess has chosen clothes from her closet, she also revamped a black jumpsuit from her Everlane collection which she wore in a video for British Vogue last September. This video was called Forces For Change which she played a large role in editing.

She has become a positive role model for women everywhere with her views about eco-friendly fashion.  Zofia Day, Los Angeles-based and founder of Lisette Polyn Jewelry, said Meghan chose her pave diamond and gold bracelet to accessorize her Everlane jumpsuit.

She went on to say that Meghan is showing women that it’s beautiful to be conscious of our environment and you can make choices that make a difference.

This project has been a passion of Meghan’s since she and Harry announced their engagement.  As a matter of fact, during one of her first royal walking tours, she wore a sustainable Welsh denim brand from Hiut Denim Co which creates organic sustainable jeans and employs from their own community.

The Duchess also dons ethical and socially conscious lines like Gabriela Hirst, Maggie Marilyn, Reformation, and Outland Denim. She chose Stella McCartney to design her evening wedding reception dress.  Stella is considered an early pioneer of ethical fashion.

Many women have watched Meghan emerge as someone passionate about our environment and feel a need to make a strong statement to other women that it is chic and fashionable to wear clothes from recycled materials.  Not only does she always look amazing, but she will not be a hypocrite when it comes to how she addresses concerns for our planet.

Each one of us should take a little time and go through our closets and see what we can bring back into the light of day.  How many of us have clothes we have worn once and then just locked up in our closets never to be worn again?  Maybe it’s time to reconsider!

Which Members of the Royal Family Fly Commercial, and Why

With recent developments and concerns regarding the environment, the ethics of flying private have been in debate, so after the siting of Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex on a private jet to Spain and France, many questions have arisen in terms of if and when royals fly commercial.

Prince Harry and his spouse have voiced concerns multiple times about the current condition of the environment and where it’s headed; they have shown themselves to be highly committed to environmental efforts, but it was exactly this that confused many when they flew to Nice with their son Archie on a private jet provided by Elton John and David Furnish.

Friends With Jets

Elton has been Princess Diana’s – Harry’s mother – friend, for quite a long time, so when contention arose, he tweeted that the flight was made carbon-neutral by donating efforts to reduce emissions.

This occurrence has many wondering, however, how often royals are flying on private jets and if they fly commercial at all. According to Hello!, most royals fly commercial some of the time.

The main exception to this is the Queen herself. Her Majesty only flies private, so you would never site her on a commercial flight. Both Prince William and Prince Harry, however, have flow commercial on multiple occasions.

They even flew economy during a low-profile visit to the States in 2014. People have also seen William and Kate on commercial flights, but most often in the first-class section.

Harry and Meghan along with a few bodyguards were spotted last December in the back row of a commercial flight to France, according to the Telegraph, but they kept a few empty rows between them and the rest of the plane.

Very recently, on August 22, the Daily Mail reported that the entire Cambridge family took a budget flight to Scotland.

Of course, they were surrounded by security guards and assistants – so much so that you may not even be able to see members of the family even if you’re on the same flight!

One passenger professed as much to the Daily Mail: “The family were sat right at the front. I fly this route all the time and we were none the wiser. No one knew they were on the flight. Later on, I realized that Kate’s mother was sat a few rows in front of me.”

When the royals do fly commercial, they often try to fly with British Companies, specifically British Airways, according to Hello!.

The royal family has a special connection to the airline since the Duchess of Cambridge’s parents both worked for them back in the day before shifting to a party décor business in the late 1980s. In fact, it’s where they met and fell in love!

Depends Where They’re Going

According to Vogue, however, the main factor that influences whether a royal chooses to fly private or commercial is why they are flying.

Basically, if a royal is on public or state business, he or she is able to fly on a private jet, most often because senior members of the royal family are traveling as representatives of the family and British government.

If a royal is traveling for family trips or personal travel, they are to travel just like any other private citizen – on a commercial jet.

Of course, because of their wealth, they can always fly first class or purchase all the seats around them in economy, but they do fly commercial when it’s for their own personal purposes because of both budget and public perception.

In addition, concerns of the environment’s state have also come into play.

Many protested back in 2011 when Prince Charles borrowed a friend’s private jet. According to BBC, the royal family claimed that it was a cost-saving measure.

It most likely was, saving tax-payers from having to pay for his flight, but many were still displeased with the future king’s apparent disregard for the environment.

Mark Zuckerberg Innovates New Sleeping Aid for Mothers

While Mark Zuckerberg might not be seen as the savior of humanity as he once was, the Facebook guru is still a hugely respected name in innovation. Known for Facebook primarily, he’s enjoyed a massive and stellar rise to the very top of the tech industry.

However, clearly still burning bright with ideas and innovations, Zuckerberg has been working on a very cool, very considerate product – a sleeping aid for mothers.

With two young kids at home, the Facebook supremo is someone who understands the value of caring for his kids. So, after seeing how exhausted everyone was at home, he decided to act. To do that, he came up with the aptly named Sleep Box. He gave it to his wife, Priscilla Chan, who immediately found it useful to get her to sleep at night.

Speaking about the invention, Zuckerberg was clear about why he made it:

“Being a mom is hard, and since we’ve had kids Priscilla has had a hard time sleeping through the night,”“She’ll wake up and check the time on her phone to see if the kids might wake up soon, but then knowing the time stresses her out and she can’t fall back asleep.”

It’s a confusing process, but it is part of being a parent. Therefore, this new invention might go some way to overcoming this problem and helping Chan get to sleep a whole lot easier than she is at the moment.

This simple but effective little tool works by putting on a dim light from 6-7AM. It might seem simple, but it does a lot for improving quality of sleep for the duo.

Smart but Simple

The light is good enough that it will wake one of us to get the kids without it being too early. However, it’s also dull enough that, if they wish to keep on sleeping, the light is not going to wake them up too early.

It’s a simple but smart little invention and one that a lot of parents would like having around the house. Now, waking up in the middle of the night is not going to feel like such a stressful experience.

Indeed, Zuckerberg himself noted that even he was impressed at just how well the product had done at improving sleeping quality, saying: “As an engineer, building a device to help my partner sleep better is one of the best ways I can think of to express my love and gratitude,

“A bunch of my friends have told me they’d want something like this, so I’m putting this out there in case another entrepreneur wants to run with this and build sleep boxes for more people!”

What a cool little product. Be sure to keep an eye out for this, as it is very much likely to be made by someone else who can see the potential in this small but simple little box. Who knew the genius behind Facebook would also be the genius behind saving mothers from restless nights!?

Why Does Queen Elizabeth Wear Gloves?

Over the many years that Queen Elizabeth has occupied the throne, there are a few things that stand out when it comes to her attire such as a bright colored coat, her matching hat, always a huge brooch, and lastly, her perfect gloves!  She has also been known to wear many different sunglasses in many different colors including blue, yellow, and fuchsia.

Back to the question about the gloves.  Actually, there is a really good reason, the queen must shake a lot of hands during the course of a day.  She is constantly exposed to germs so her gloves protect her!

Ever since her honeymoon in 1947, the glove manufacturer Cornelia James has kept the queen in a large supply of gloves.  Genevieve James, the current director, and daughter of Cornelia told Good Housekeeping, the gloves may serve a practical purpose but have also become her trademark over the years.

In 1947, the royal couturier Norman Hartnell, who designed the queen’s wedding dress, ordered a suitcase of James’ gloves.  James was well-known for his gloves coming in a multitude of colors as well as traditional shades which the queen loves.

Family Business

In 1979, manufacturer Cornelia James received her Royal Warrant as the official glove manufacturer to Queen Elizabeth.  After Cornelia’s death in 1999, her daughter took over the business.  It’s estimated that since that time, the company has made around 60 to 70 pairs of gloves for the queen.  Genevieve said that she can tell the difference between her creations and those of her mother’s.

Unlike your standard glove, the queen’s gloves are made from pure cotton with a suede-brushed finish. Another favored style of gloves uses a lighter Swiss jersey.  The gloves are from the Francesca or Regina collection and the length is customized for the sleeves to reach 5 inches from the base of her thumb to her arm.  This allows the gloves to reach beyond the cuff of her coat and keeps her wrists covered.

The queen has been known to keep at least 2 or 3 gloves with her at all times.  The queen is also known to be thrifty, she is likely to get her gloves washed and/or repaired due to the cost of £110 per pair. The queen has been known to keep her gloves for 40 years.  The royal family has always wanted to appear as economical, not wasting money.

It’s believed the British people are in favor of their economic spending, seeing the family in a much more favorable light. I’m sure we would all love to have these incredible gloves to add to our fashion statement, but for now, let’s just say “God Save The Queen”!

Jackson Kids – The Unspoken Victims

It’s safe to say that the majority of the world are familiar with (or heard of) the King of Pop, Michael Jackson. Micheal spent his life in the public eye, from the day Jackson 5 kick started his music career, at age 13.

During the chaos of his career, he also became a father to three children; Michael Joseph, Paris and Prince Michael.

There is no denying that the late artist went through his fair share of adversities before he passed away. However, with the focus mainly being on Michael, it was easy to forget that his three children were attempting to lead normal lives in the process and were going through their own difficulties…

So who are these Jackson children? How did they cope with their bizarre situation? where are they now? Each child has their own story filled with events and experiences that might shock you.

Gordon Ramsay Posts Pictures Of Raw Food. Why?

When you are cooking for your friends, you can pretty much serve whatever you want.  But raw food? You might want to store that in a folder labeled “What Not To Serve At A BBQ”.

That’s probably easier said than done when you are a famous international chef.  The food you prepare is going to be noticed by millions of people.  That’s a given for Gordon to deal with on a daily basis.

He has spent years shouting at chefs in kitchens, making derogatory comments about their sandwiches because they couldn’t seem to grasp how to cook a simple egg.

He is well-known for berating others and making comments that are a far cry from decent. Rarely does he have the focus turned on him or his cooking skills? It seems the tables have turned and many people have taken issue with his latest concoctions during a BBQ.

Controversial Chateaubriand

That said, people had taken issue with one of his latest accomplishments in the kitchen and placing it on social media revealing a delicious looking Chateaubriand.

The dish is served on a wooden board with a Bearnaise sauce, tomatoes, and green garnish.  The pictures, alone, will definitely stir up your appetite, but some people had questioned when the meat was going to be properly cooked?

His post was covered in comments from people saying the meat was way too raw to serve for their liking.  One person said, quite sarcastically, that if they could get a veterinarian on the scene quickly, he or she could probably resuscitate the poor cow.

Others have suggested that Ramsey place it back on the BBQ.

Secret Sauce

What many of these commentators do not understand, this is exactly how you serve Chateaubriand along with a Bearnaise sauce!  It is a tenderloin cut that is located between the sirloin and top sirloin parts of the cow.

Even though he’s not wrong, some people find the image a little beyond upsetting. Moving on to the popular online show, First We Feast, which consists of people asking questions while eating hot wings.

What you might call hot wings might not be the same, these hot wings are super HOT!

Ramsey is the most requested guest on the show and it was his kids bullying him to go on.  They told their dad he is always shouting and screaming all day because he has a big mouth, but can he actually take on some of these hot wings?

During the interview, he couldn’t help but make negative comments about the hot wings, asking how long these wings had been cooked and followed up with “because they are a bit “f**ing” overcooked. He said one of the wings looked like his grandfather’s big toe and quite simply they are just not good.

He managed to take on the wings but as the heat started to rise, he started breaking into a sweat and started tearing. Final comment, as he wiped back tears, he said “I haven’t cried this much since AA Gill’s funeral”

Way to go First We Feast! What goes around, sometimes comes back around!

When you are cooking for your friends, you can pretty much serve whatever you want.  But raw food? You might want to store that in a folder labeled “What Not To Serve...

Kanye West Loves “Rick & Morty”

We knew this before, Kanye West never has minced words when asked what his favorite TV show is, he always says it is “Rick & Morty.” Over the years, Kanye has talked about the show on his social media pages and TV. He says the episodes are so good; it is easy to watch them five times without getting bored.
The “Rick & Morty” TV show is an animated adult science fiction sitcom. It was created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon. The TV show can be seen on Cartoon Network during the late hours every day because of its PG rating. The sitcom is about a crazy scientist called Rick Sanchez and his grandson Morty Smith who go on different adventures across the galaxies. So far, there are over seventy episodes of the show.

The press caught up with Kanye in NYC. He had come with Kim Kardashian to enjoy the Versace fashion show. Kanye was about entering the venue of the event when he was asked the all too familiar question, “What is your favorite TV show?” and he mentioned the name we have heard for many years.

We wonder why Kanye is so fascinated by this show. The crazy humor and adventures of Rick and Morty are good for a laugh. It is warming to know that Kanye can find time to unwind with such a hilarious show despite his busy schedule.

We won’t be surprised to see a cameo with Kanye on the “Rick & Morty” show in the nearest future. He has made the show quite popular. Last time Kanye mentioned the TV show’s name, the search results online increased because many people were interested in seeing the show Kanye was so passionate about.

We also noticed a bromance forming between Kanye and the creator of “Rick & Morty” Justin Roiland. The two have been communicating on Twitter, and there are plans to hand out. Kanye has also taken an interest in the characters of the show; he posts pictures of Rick and Morty on his social media pages. The special one happened during Kanye’s birthday. His wife Kim Kardashian launched a new Rick and Morty song titled “Kanye’s B Day,” which was originally composed for Kanye’s birthday

UPDATED: The Winners At The 70th Emmy Awards

UPDATE 18/09/2018: The list of winners at the 2018 Emmy Awards has now been added to the end of this post.

Predictions abound for the 70th iteration of the Emmy’s with several of television’s most celebrated shows set for a big night at the Television Academy Awards held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Monday, September 17, 2018.

“This year’s nominations continue to represent increased diversity and inclusion in front of the camera,” said Television Academy Chairman and CEO Hayma Washington. “And, there is a wealth of new and returning programs that reflect so many of today’s critical issues.”

Among all shows up for awards, Game Of Thrones has the most nominations (22) in all categories, followed by Saturday Night Live (21) and Westworld (21). Leading the nominations in totals by platform are Netflix (112), HBO (108) and NBC (78). With over a hundred awards on offer, we’ll take our pics among the contenders for the Drama Series category’s main awards.

Outstanding Drama Series

The award for the best drama series seems like a two horse raise between downtrodden handmaidens and the dragon-riding royalty of Westeros. With Game of Thrones famously absent from last year’s awards, the Handmaid’s Tale swooped in to collect the gong. This year, the two go head-to-head. Critics are predicting a win for the Hulu drama to repeat the feat again this year.

Lead Actor In A Drama Series

It looks to be a threepeat for actor Sterling K. Brown. The This Is Us star comes in having won consecutive awards for The People v. O.J. Simpson and This Is Us. With his fictional father, Ron Cephas Jones, winning the Guest-Actor award in a stunning upset this past weekend, it means voters have been paying attention to the storyline. Realistically, Brown’s main threat is his co-star and fictional adopted father, Milo Ventimiglia, who perhaps had a more emphatic role this past season.

Lead Actress In A Drama Series

Likewise, except a repeat for Elisabeth Moss to win this year’s gong. The Handmaid’s Tale star’s compelling portrayal in the series seems impossible to beat, with the show’s success due in large part to the star’s series-carrying performance. Having been overlooked for her past work on Mad Men, Moss is a shoe-in for this year’s award once again.

Supporting Actor In A Drama Series

Last year’s winner, John Lithgow for The Crown, isn’t in the running this year, which leaves the field wide open. Both Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Peter Dinklage can consider themselves contenders for their roles on Game of Thrones. Dinklage already having two previous wins and Coster-Waldau being tasked with the season’s most poignant moments. However, Matt Smith for his perfectly petty and occasionally sympathetic portrayal as Prince Philip in The Crown is apparently tipped to win.

Supporting Actress In A Drama Series

The Handmaid’s Tale has three nominees this award, making up it a favorite to win this award. Interestingly the show has yet to lose an acting category in which it has been nominated. The real question is not if but who among its nominees will win. Samira Wiley was awarded this year’s Guest Actress award, just as Alexis Bedel, who won last year’s Guest Actress prize, is now a season regular and up for a Supporting Actress award. Ann Dowd and Yvonne Strahovski who also star in the show are nominated. Dowd might have been the early favorite, however, as the season progressed it was Strahovski who really stole the show, having previously worked on both Chuck and Dexter.

As for the Outstanding Directing For A Drama Series, and Outstanding Writing For A Drama Series awards, there’s little to separate between Game of Thrones, The Handmaid’s Tale, and This Is Us.

“It’s been another record-breaking year with more than 9,100 entries in 122 unique categories for the initial nomination round of voting,” said Washington. “The continued growth of the industry has provided opportunities for acclaimed new programs to emerge while allowing last season’s break-through programs to thrive.”

Meek Mill Donates 6,000 Backpacks to His Hometown School District in Philadelphia

Meek Mill is giving back to his Philadelphia community just in time for the back-to-school season.

He didn’t have an easy childhood as together with his sister and mother were living in poverty after his dad was killed when he was just 5 years old.  Now after climbing out from the streets, he has decided to give something back to the community in order to help kids face the same life he did.

The 31-year-old rapper is donating 6,000 backpacks and school supplies to low-income students at 12 schools in the neighborhood.

“Growing up in Philly, I’ve watched families struggle to make ends meet and buy basic school supplies for their kids,” Meek Mill said in a statement.

“Those memories stay with me and that’s why I’m committed to giving back to families in my hometown, putting smiles on kids’ faces and helping them start the school year on the right note with the right supplies,” he continued.

The lyricist visited his alma mater, James G. Blaine Elementary School, to personally hand out the supplies to students on Wednesday.

“I’m also a native of North Philadelphia, so to have [Meek Mill] come back and be a model of what it is to work hard and make your dreams come true, as you can see, it’s exciting for the students,” Assistant Superintendent Amelia Coleman Brown told Philly.com. “It’s great motivation to start the school year.”

No Parole For John Lennon’s Killer

It is the tenth time the killer of John Lennon will be denied parole. His ‘debt’ has not been paid in full. After hearing his plea for a parole consideration, the board concluded and was quoted to have stated that releasing Mark David Chapman “would be incompatible with the welfare and safety of the society and would so deprecate the serious nature of the crime as to undermine respect for the law.”

Mark Chapman had indeed neglected the legal consequences by willfully pulling the trigger of the gun that killed John Lennon. Now 63 years old, he is still paying for the crime he committed, the public has commended the board for rejecting his application for parole while other groups have criticized the parole rejection as unfair.

Chapman was convicted for the murder of John Lennon and was given a life sentence. He has been incarcerated at the Wende Correctional Facility in western New York. John would have been 78 years this year if not for the unfortunate event that led to his untimely death.

In its denial decision, the parole board stated that Chapman has consciously planned and executed the murder of the famous John Lennon because he wanted to gain a ruthless reputation. The board also noted that he had consciously chosen to assassinate a popular figure without regard to the pain and anguish his family and fans from all over the world would suffer.

The parole board is of the opinion that setting Chapman free would only send a message that such as act could be condoned or pardoned over time and in the process undermine the seriousness of such crimes.

The next parole hearing for Chapman is scheduled for August 2020. However, the public outcry for him to remain behind bars cannot be overlooked. Over the years, the impact of the loss and suffering Chapman caused millions of fans all over the world remains ‘fresh in their memories. Chapman confirms that he still receives letters from anonymous fans of John Lennon condemning his act many years ago and he wishes he had made different choices at that time. However, the deed was done, and now, it is so difficult to forget.

Cardi B was also the most nominated artist of the night. Even more than the Carters (Beyoncé and JAY-Z) who received “only eight.” Drake also got eight, and Childish Gambino got seven.

Other performers that night were Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj, Post Malone, Travis Scott, Logic and Ryan Tedder, and Jennifer Lopez. By the way, Lopez was given the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. That’s something to hang up on your wall!

The most enjoyable moment of the show, according to entertainment outlets, was Ja Rule who joined J Lo for the performance of “Ain’t It Funny.” Her performance exploded on stage making the night amazing.

Madonnas’ tribute to Aretha Frankin was weird. Her clothes and speech were missed by the audience and online fans who criticized her for her tribute.

Will POTUS Trump Lose His Hollywood Star?

For a celebrity, few things can be more damning to be told: losing your Hollywood Star. Easily one of the most important accolades that a celebrity can get, the fact that you can actually lose your star is a major kick in the teeth. Well, it looks like one person might be finally about to stand up to the President of the United States, Donald Trump, in the most innocuous way: removing his Hollywood star.

While we suspect that the Teflon-infused POTUS will just laugh it all off and make some wild comments about it on Twitter, it’s nice to see the celebrity world take a bit of a stand for once. The celebrity world is loaded with a lack of fire when it comes to making a political message stand out, and it’s nice to see self-preservation take a back seat for a change.

The five-member West Hollywood City Council has apparently voted unanimously to have the star removed from the ground. While the council lacks the authority to do so itself, it intends to try and send out a formal message to Eric Garcetti, the Mayor of Los Angeles, to see if he’ll do something about it. They also messaged the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, the key decision maker, and the Los Angeles City Council, to push for the star to be binned.

Citing all manner of reasons to remove the star, including “disturbing treatment of women and other actions that do not meet the shared values of the City of West Hollywood, the region, state, and country,” it’s likely that this will fall on deaf ears.

According to John D’Amico, the West Hollywood Mayor, this isn’t to do with political affiliation, but that the star is an “honor” and that when one belittles and attacks minorities, immigrants, people with disabilities or women—the honor no longer exists.”

Turning Up the Heat

While such superficial battles won’t make one bit of difference in the long-run, it’s nice to see a bit of backlash against Trump. The Walk of Fame star that he has in Hollywood has already been the victim of vandals, and was even chipped away at by someone with a pickaxe. It’s also been spray-painted with Nazi imagery and various other profane stickers, so it might just be for the best to remove the star in the long run.


Given that other stars in the past have not been removed, though, it’s not likely to happen. According to ex-President and CEO f the Chamber, Leron Gubler, it’s not something to consider. Speaking in 2015 regarding the removal of Bill Cosby’s star, Gubler said: “once a star has been added to the Walk, it is considered a part of the historic fabric of the Hollywood Walk of Fame.”

If that’s the case, expect this bit of drama to carry on for a good while yet.

Bringing Sixty Back: Maddona Turns 60

“People say I’m controversial,” Madonna, who turns 60 today, told a music-industry audience in 2016. “But I think the most controversial thing I have ever done is to stick around.”

The celebrated pop star, actress, writer, and director was born on the 16th of August 1958 and given the name Madonna Louise Ciccone by her Catholic parents. Since first breaking onto the music scene in the late 1970s, The Material Girl has now sold more than 300 million records worldwide and performed on 10 concert tours. According to Guinness World Records, she is the best-selling female recording artist of all time.

In 1977 the Queen of Pop moved to the Big Apple to study dance while working as a model. She soon decided to pursue a musical career and began to record demos with her boyfriend Stephen Bray. After a stint as a band member in the Breakfast Club, she decided to embark on a solo career.

Holiday” was Madge’s first breakthrough hit in the US, peaking at number 16, with “Material Girl” reaching number 3 and “Like A Virgin” being the first of her twelve number-one hits. 1985 proved to be a landmark year for “M” as her debut tour sold out. She also played at the historic Live Aid charity concert. The same year she featured in her first mainstream film, Desperately Seeking Susan for which she received generally positive reviews from both critics and viewers.

A polarizing figure, the Queen of Reinvention has never been one to shy away from controversy. From burning crosses and kissing a black saint in her hit single “Like A Prayer“, tackling teenage pregnancy in “Papa Don’t Preach“, supporting the LGBT community during the peak era of HIV news, publishing a controversial “coffee table” photo book of herself in a number of explicit poses in the early 90s, locking lips with Brittany Spears and Christina Aguilera on stage at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2003, the MDNA singer has certainly had her fair share of iconic moments. Throughout the 1980s, 1990s, 2000s, and 2010s, Madonna has maintained her unapologetic sex-positive, no-holds-barred image.

The singer’s list of accomplishments include Grammys, MTV awards, Billboard awards, and a Golden Globe for Best Actress for her role as the eponymous Evita in a musical or comedy, among numerous others. In 2008 Maddy was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in her first year of eligibility. She is also the highest-grossing solo touring artist of all time with over $1.4 billion earned from concert tours alone. She has also written a series of children’s books, having released seven picture books and twelve chapter books so far.

Twice married, once to American actor Sean Penn, and once to English director and Producer Guy Ritchie with whom she had a son, Rocco. Madonna is the mother to six children, including four she adopted from Malawi where she has focused most of her charity work. She had her first child Lourdes Maria with then-boyfriend and fitness trainer Carlos Leon.

Recently, Madonna told the BBC in 2017 that performing at smaller intimate shows “is something I’m exploring right now”. She said she is looking to perform at a set venue as opposed to touring, “The idea of doing a show that doesn’t travel the world but stays in one place.”
