The Morning Mix: Madonna’s Hung Up On Having Another Kid

Jan 21st, 2010 // 3 Comments

Good morning everybody! We’re not sure who that girl on Vampire Weekend’s Contra album cover is, but we’re officially starting the rumor that it’s Ke$ha.  Let’s get to the mix:

Did You Hear?

:: Is Madonna really trying to get pregnant at age 51? Why doesn’t she just pretend Jesus Luz (pictured above) is one of her offspring and call it a day? [The Superficial]

:: Bow Wow may have dropped the ‘Lil’, but he can’t shake his mom. Because she’s taken over Twitter. [Gawker]

:: Ludacris has released a new mixtape, Conjure: A Hustler’s Spirit, to build buzz for his official album and his own cognac line. Don’t tell Bill O’Reilly Luda’s back in the beverage business. [Smoking Section]

:: 50 Cent is reportedly working on a more “mainstream” album. You know what that means: the Twilight cast will be featured on every track. [Hip Hop Wired]

:: Mariah Carey calls her Golden Globes-baring dress from Sunday night’s awards ceremony “conservative.” The funny thing is, Rush Limbaugh wore the same exact dress on his show last week. How embarrassing. [WWTDD]

Behind the jump: a visionary music video director goes from indie romance to superhero blockbusters on the big-screen.

VIDEO REWIND OF THE DAY: Marc Webb, who directed the delightful (500) Days of Summer, in addition to countless music videos, has been tapped to take the reins on the rebooted Spider-Man franchise. Headline writers are already licking their chops over the web/Webb puns to come.

Although Webb has directed dozens of music videos featuring everyone from Green Day to Regina Spektor, our favorite has to be My Chemical Romance’s “I’m Not Okay (I Promise),” which helped launched the screamo-rock dudes into the mainstream. Love that it feels like it could actually be the trailer to a John Hughes movie—just an eensy bit louder. (And is it just us, or is that Scarlett Johannson’s long lost twin playing a cheerleader?)

Have a great day, everyone!

    The Raising Malawi (Raising Madonna) 'foundation' has already squandered a fortune in donor funds on private jet rides and super-exclusive resort stays for Madonna and her PR team. I say we demand to see itemized progress/efficiency/asset reports for the years '06' – '09'. Then, we demand that Madonna reimburse this 'foundation' for her own outrageous travel/stay expenses and pay for her own private jet rides and luxury resorts stays from now on. Then, we demand that Madonna donate all proceeds from the 'I am because we are' DVD to the impoverished country she has chosen to exploit for profit (Yes, the 'I am because we are' DVD is for profit. Madonna herself founded Semtek Films. Its all for profit.). I say we demand that she donate those proceeds to the country she claims to have “fallen in love with” (Which by the way, is a lie.). I say we demand that Raising Malawi (Raising Madonna) open its books for any independent charity watchdog like CharityWatch.org and earn itself a decent rating. So far they have failed to do so. If the Raising Malawi (Raising Madonna) foundation would simply focus more on Malawi and less on Madonna and drop the ulterior motives (Like the opening of Coorporate juggernaut retail outlets, the promotion of 'for profit' merchandise, and the constant celebration of their pop star figurehead), they would be able to accomplish more 'dollar for dollar' and possibly even earn the support of skeptics like me. But I won't send one dime without those itemized progress/efficiency/asset reports. Legitimate efficient charities always provide these reports for their potential donors. Raising Malawi (Raising Madonna) should provide them as well. So far, they have absolutely refused to do so. (888-72-DONOR)
