When Azzedine Alaïa passed away on Saturday, Madonna and many other stars who worked with him paid their respects to the couturier and shoe designer. Madonna posted a picture of them together, taken by Steven Meisel in the 90s. In her Bad Girl video, she had also referenced Alaïa, when the suit that she takes out of the closet wore his name tag.  

GOD Bless this. Talented and Beautiful Soul! ♥️🌺♥️🌺♥️ Azzedjne Alaia ♥️🌺♥️🌺🌺♥️! I was so Lucky to know him. Work with him and laugh with him!! 🙏🏻 May he rest in Peace! 🙏🏻 @stevenmeisel_

'RuPaul's Drag Race' star Milk is new face of Madonna's skincare line

Who's that girl? It's Madonna... or is it?

In a new video promoting her MDNA skincare line, the icon appears to be revisiting three of the most legendary looks from her storied career ― the "Hung Up" music videothe "Living for Love" music video, and the cone bra from the Blonde Ambition Tour.

"Over the years I've had the opportunity to embody many personas ― to express myself but remain myself," Madonna purrs in a voice-over before daring viewers to "take a deeper look" and ultimately declaring that she wants to start a "revolution of being who you are." 

The irony? The star of the video is actually "RuPaul's Drag Race" fave Milk, who pulls off a stunningly convincing impersonation of the queen of pop.

"From having my makeup done by Aaron Henrikson, to my hair, to secretly getting to try on the original Jean Paul Gaultier cone bra, shooting the MDNA SKIN campaign video was surreal," Milk said in a press release sent to HuffPost. "To be a part of this, for someone who has always epitomized the ideals of being different and unique, was a dream come true."

Madonna shares an intimate cover of Elliott Smith performed while ‘everyone else is asleep’

Madonna's children get the best lullabies at bed time, if the singer's latest video is any indication.

The Grammy winner, 59, shared a cover of Elliott Smith's Between the Bars on her Twitter page, where she's softly singing and playing guitar during a late-night music session.

"Strumming my favorite song when everyone else is asleep," she captioned the black and white video posted early Thursday, adding the hashtags #prayer #lullaby and #love.

This isn't the first time Madonna has expressed her love for the track off Smith's 1997 album Either/Or. In a 2006 interview with Q magazine, she named Between the Bars as the song from the last 20 years she wished she'd written.

Between the Bars............🎼🖤strumming my favorite song when everyone else is asleep. ♥️ Eliot Smith 🙏🏻 #prayer #lullaby #love

She also covered the tune at a 2013 screening of the short film#SecretProjectRevolution. The singer was dragged into the room by men dressed as prison guards. Halfway through the performance, she was accompanied by a masked dancer dressed head-to-toe in black—who just happened to be her son Rocco.

Madonna is not the only one in her family who loves doing their own rendition of a good tune.

The music icon recently shared a video of her son David Banda jamming out to her 1983 hit Holiday while in the car.
