By all accounts, Madonna is entrenched in a custody battle over her 15-year old son Rocco Ritchie, who is refusing to leave his father's home in the U...
Hearing these stories can make people believe in romance and the value of a shared history. But it also raises the questions: How do you know when an old loved has the potential to come back to life, and when is it best to leave an old relationship where it is: in the rearview mirror?
She always managed to find that sweet spot where half the people loved it and the other half were so outraged they couldn't stop talking about it.
No, adopting a black child is not an opportunity to prove you're not racist or be heralded for wanting the undesirable and loving the unlovable. It means understanding and accepting that despite the notion of race as a purely social construct, there are physical differences between us.
I wish I could sing, and belt out every feeling like Nina Simone or sing a love letter to my daughter like Paul Simon. I love music and have long been impressed with the artists that enrich our world in so many ways.
"We all bounce off each other. I will sing Nate a bass line...sometimes Weedie will sing me drum parts...as a matter fact, Weedie sang me this incre...
In what was described as the Miracle at Marie Calendars after a waitress's narcoleptic fit caused a major Boysenberry Pie stain to occur on one of the restaurant's walls. Immediately, customers began debating whether it looked like the Madonna, Jesus' mother, or Madonna, the pop icon.
It's not always easy being a Madonna fan. Her occasional slip-ups notwithstanding -- even I cringe at the opening lines to Rebel Heart's "S.E.X." -- the real challenge is listening to and reading the criticism that's been riding the Queen of Pop's coattails for 30 years.
After reading this book, I discovered that Michelle is not only all of the things you would assume of her, but so much more. She is a fighter, and really an inspiration that keeps me dreaming big. This diva has so many exciting things going on in her life, I had to ask her, "15 Questions."

I feel almost obligated to be a Madonna fan, since I write novels about the intersection of sex and spirituality. Madonna is probably the world's leading living artist who deals with this sizzling and controversial combo.
I am going to see Madonna in concert this Saturday night. Now I am well aware that some of you will be excited for me, and some of you will roll your eyes. For me this concert will be epic. Legendary. Mind blowing. I may explode in a pile of lace gloves, layered belts, crucifixes and gummy bracelets -- if you see all that stuff lying in a pile on the sidewalk Sunday morning, it's probably me.
Have you ever been so excited that the top of the "excitement" meter blows off and you're super calm? And then you start to worry because something ALWAYS goes wrong...? That's exactly how I felt when I found out I was actually going to MAKE IT to see Madonna in concert 25 years after I saw her live at her Blond Ambition tour.
I found myself looking for modern day philosophers whose style and teachings I could adapt and apply more easily in my own life. And by being the right place at the right time, these great minds appeared -- Amy Schumer and Maya Rudolph.
If you're not black you shouldn't be saying "Nigga". It doesn't matter how many black dudes or girls you've slept with or that your best friends are black or that your best friend's dog is black or even that you live in the "ghetto"; if you're not black that word should not leave your mouth.
