Childhood dream coming true : Madonna was the sparkle that made me start dancing when at 11 , I saw her concert on tv . It was love at first sight : her deep voice , her furious energy , her dionysian moves galvanising crowds. She gave me so much strength during my teenagers years , being an outspoken fighter for gay rights and against aids epidemic in a time when very few were taking a stand. She was and is still using her music and body to viscerally confront sensitive subjects , transforming herself like a fire taking many shapes . When she proposed me to join her creative team for the next theatre tour , it was an offer I couldn’t refuse . I am happy to announce I created with her 4 numbers, including the opening act , for the Madame X tour that launches tonight at Brooklyn Academy of Music . It been an amazing and challenging experience . A huge thanks to my other half @aimiliosarapoglou , for the invaluable inspiration and strength , The wonderful and talented @meganguwre , the creative director of the show , @luigiandiango , Lola, the ground-breaking dancers and musicians , all the management team and of course to Madonna , who is a real lighthouse . Let the games begin ... Picture taken by @ricardogomesinst on the birthday we share #madonna, #madamex, #damienjalet
Damien Jalet explains the concept behind that gorgeous Frozen performance, which is a 'pas de deux' between Madonna and daughter Lourdes.
« Frozen » is a pas de deux between Madonna and her daughter Lola Leon . The choreographic score of Madonna is an hommage to one of her her artistic mother : Martha Graham .We worked separately with her daughter , The dancer Lola Leon, on a solo based on the idea of shape shifting. Through the song Lola evolves from a close, inward static position to free, twirling movements around her mother , like an energy coming out of her , finding freedom and emancipation though her moves . Madonna was studying modern dance at the current age of Lola . The two in some moments are like a mirror of each other . The film was shot by @luigiandiango . And both solos were created with the assisting help of @aimiliosarapoglou and @shhhrrera .

It's a match made in makeup heaven. Madonna and Too Faced created a makeup collection — but there's a catch. The collection is comprised of two super exclusive kits that will only be available at a specific location, as revealed by Too Faced co-founder and chief creative officer Jerrod Blandino and Madonna on their individual Instagram feeds on Sept. 12.
The collaboration is inspired by looks that Madonna will actually be wearing on her upcoming tour in support of her latest album Madame X. The Madonna x Too Faced makeup kits will be sold at each tour date.
However, the collection is also temporarily available at the NYC Madame X pop-up shop from Sept. 13 through Sept. 19. The pop-up is located at 430 West 15 Street in Manhattan.
Blandino emphasized in the caption of his post that the kits are extremely limited. However, the brand could eventually sell the sets on its website at a later date if the demand is high.
Blandino also shared his signature "sneaky peek" of the products in a series of Instagram stories that he filmed while perusing the pop-up. He posted a picture of the price listing from the mobile store, which shows that the makeup collection costs $75. Overall, these products just might inspire fans to hurry up and nab tickets to the tour.
Here is all of the intel on the makeup collection, based entirely on Blandino's big reveal. Each kit can be used on its own or together. Together, they equal a full face kit minus foundation and concealer.
The I Rise kit, which takes it name from a Madame X song, features a wallet-sized palette with exclusive eyeshadow and blush shades. It also boasts a brow pencil, the best-selling Better Than Sex mascara, and the Melted Matte lipstick in the Sell Out shade. The eye and cheek shades are named after Madonna's biggest hits, like "Material Girl" and "Dress You Up." The packaging features Madonna rocking a beret and golden curls.
The Medellin collection also shares its name with a Madame X track and boasts a palette with five shades of eyeshadow and a blush — all of which are also named after Madge's mega hits, such as "Ray of Light" and "Like a Virgin." It includes the brand's semi-new Damn Girl! mascara, a Better Than Sex liquid eyeliner for perfecting those cat eye flicks, and a Melted Matte lippie in a burnt red shade. The pop legend and fashion icon has statement lips on the packaging.
The pop-up shop includes additional merch, such as patches, lapel pins, arm bands, fanny packs, pendant necklaces, scarves, hats, and shirts. It's a fully immersive Madonna experience. The merch will likely be sold at the tour dates alongside the Too Faced makeup. Bustle reached out to Madonna's reps for more information.
UPDATE: Madonna reps confirmed this merch drop is exclusive to the pop-up.
If you have already bought tickets to Madonna's tour, which begins with a unique residency in Brooklyn this month, you now have two more reasons to pop over to the merch booths before heading to your seats. These Madonna x Too Faced makeup kits offer you the tools to to replicate the singer's signature style. They will also inspire you to get creative when drafting up your own unique looks.
Rhino has announced the reissue of Madonna’s first four iconic albums – three studio and one soundtrack – on crystal clear vinyl on November 8th. Madonna, Like a Virgin, True Blue and Who’s That Girl: The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack will be available separately and as a bundle exclusively from the Rhino store.
Madonna’s seminal, self-titled 1983 album is certified five-times platinum and sold over ten million copies worldwide, captivating audiences with Top 10 hits including “Holiday”, “Lucky Star” and “Borderline.”
Madonna cemented her status as a cultural icon a year later with her follow-up release, Like a Virgin. Produced by Nile Rodgers, the record was her first to top the U.S. albums chart, its title track becoming her first No. 1 single. Certified diamond, Like a Virgin has sold over 21 million copies worldwide. The record features hits including “Dress You Up”, “Angel” and “Material Girl.”
In 1986, Madonna co-wrote and co-produced True Blue, which topped global album charts in 28 countries and the U.S. The critically acclaimed release has sold more than 25 million copies worldwide, making it one of the best-selling albums in history. All five of its singles reached the Billboard Top Five, including three No. 1’s – “Live To Tell,” “Papa Don’t Preach” and “Open Your Heart.”
Madonna next starred in the film Who’s That Girl and recorded four songs for its soundtrack. Released in 1987, Who’s That Girl: The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack has sold more than six million copies internationally thanks in part to its chart-topping title track and “Causing A Commotion.”
The news comes as Madonna is set to kick off the highly-anticipated Madame X Tour on September 17th. The trek will see the pop star play theaters throughout the world when it kicks off in New York City and stops in Los Angeles, London, Chicago and more.
With the Madame X Tour set to launch September 17th, Live Nation is pleased to announce that due to demand, a 7th and final Chicago show at the Chicago Theatre October 27th has been confirmed.
Additionally, to ensure fans in northern California don’t miss out, 3 San Francisco concerts – October 31, November 2 and November 4 have also been confirmed for the Golden Gate Theatre. These will be the only area dates to be added and tickets for shows in both Chicago and San Francisco will go on general sale this Friday, September 13th (10am local times).
ICON is Madonna's official fan club and Lifetime Legacy members of ICON will be eligible for a special presale for the newly announced dates starting Tuesday, September 10th (10am) through Thursday, September 12th (5pm). Legacy members, please read the detailed FAQ page here.
Ticketmaster has sent out an e-mail to New York ticket holders, explaining that the event will be a "phone-free experience". This is common practice for theater events, and ever more artists are opting for this practice to avoid having dozens of mobile phones in the air, blocking the view for others.
How does it work?
When your ticket is scanned, you will receive a Yondr case, which locks with your phone inside. You can then take the case with you, but you can't access your phone. However, you can always go to a Phone Use Area where your phone can be accessed. At the end of the show, the Yondr case is unlocked for you.
We think this is a wonderful idea to make sure people are focused on this very special and intimate show.↑ Back to top of page
