Madonna "Hell" Week On Ellen

RadarOnline.com is reporting "sources" from the Ellen DeGeneres Show are over the moon now that "Madonna Week" is finally over. I was all too eager to read the "13 reasons" The Queen was no-nonsense pure bitch all week, but I am MORE than disappointed that, yet again, it's all hearsay and multiple riffs of basically the same thing: The Material Girl was a total control freak!
I kept looking for a list of what was in the Diva's Rider. How many pages was it? What the hell was Ellen thinking when she said YES to a full week of Madonna? Apparently, it was round-the-clock misery...for everyone!
Some nuggets I culled from the article, which you can read all of it here:
* Largest entourage in the Show's history (it's been on for almost 15 years!)
* Required several trailers
* Refused to use Show hair and makeup staff
* Forced the Show to pay for army of personal hair and makeup artists
* Required executive control of script (and Show schedule)
* Retained veto power on editing and Show material
* Required approval of everything--EVERYTHING!
Now, Madonna may be one of the most challenging guests to have on a show, but I can only count seven unruly bits of behavior--not the "13" as claimed by the online gossip site. What do you think of Madonna's shenanigans? Is she a piece of work or what?
My only final comment is that they KNEW what they were getting into when they agreed to these things. So, for all of Madonna's crazy insane requirements, who's crazier--Madonna or the Show that allowed it?

Oh, Madonna's the crazy one, but the show is the weak one! Didn't they learn to 'Just Say No' in school?

Madonna Reflects on Her Brief Romance with Tupac Shakur (Wait, What?)
Yesterday Madonna was invited on the Howard Stern Show for a reveal-all interview where she talked about a number of hot topics, including her history of drug use (used to, but not anymore!) and her on-again-off-again friendship with Rosie O'Donnell ("I adore her!"). But perhaps her biggest reveal was when Howard brought up her 1994 appearance on 'The Late Show with David Letterman', controversial for her liberal use of the f-bomb. She cursed so much that it went on to become the most censored episode of any late night talk show in history! "I was mad at [Letterman] when I said the F-word a lot. I was in a weird mood that day," Madonna explained. "I was dating Tupac Shakur at the time and the thing is he got me all riled up on life in general. So when I went on the show I was feeling very gangsta." What, what? I don't know what's more brow-raising - the idea of Madonna and Tupac dating, or the fact that dating Tupac apparently brought out Madonna's inner 'gangsta'. According to E!, the couple first were introduced through Rosie Perez, as revealed by Rosie during an interview with Wendy Williams last year. And "Madonna: Like An Icon", an unauthorized biography published in 2007, claimed the two briefly dated one year before Shakur's death. Because of that, Madonna figured it was public knowledge by now. But no, Madge. It really wasn't. And now after seeing this 1994 headline from The Globe, I know I should really be paying more attention to the tabloids.

"B*tch I'm Madonna"
"Who do YOU think you are!?" Madonna is back with another provocative song but this time she's going after Taylor Swift. The 56-year-old legend is pulling all the stops creating her own 'Bad Blood' type of video. She's recruited the top names in the industry : Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj, Rita Ora, Chris Rock, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Alexander Wang, Diplo, David Banda, and Kanye to make cameos in the video. Minaj saves the song a bit with her incredible rap. Anyways, that's quite the line up. Better than Taylor Swift's? Here's the cameos... This was the Instagram pic that caused an uproar on social media pointing fingers at Madonna saying she copied Taylor Swift's 'Bad Blood'. However, imitation is the nicest form of flattery. But really though... It's exactly the same. Pathetic. Here's some more publicity pictures Madonna posted to hype the music video up. The music video debuted on a music sharing service called Tidal. Tidal had a 24 hour advantage as it was the only music service to have the music video posted. Today, VEVO gained the rights to the music video so now most of the public can see the video without having to subscribe and pay for the service. More BAD BLOOD? Here's the music video. Slightly catchy once you listen to it for a few minutes. Overall though it was a crappy attempt to rip on Tswift and it was a bizarre video. Madonna is now too old to be a pop star but she's holding on for dear life. Kinda sad. I guess she's still young at heart. I wonder if Madonna will do well with this song...
Viral Star "Damn Daniel" Meets Ellen
Daaaaaaaamn Daniel. If you haven't seen the viral video of the newly famed star "Damn Daniel" then you're probably living off the grid. With a hilarious voice coming from high school sophomore Josh Holz, he has been making hilarious vines of his friend, Daniel Lara. Daniel is only 14 years old and a freshman at Riverside Poly High School, CA. The young heart throb is now raking in thousands of fans across social media attracting super-fandom overnight. Hundreds of crazy rumors have flooded the web, everything from Daniel being attacked to he's in hiding. Everyone is just looking for a story to add to the media craze. There are currently a pair of white vans online selling for $300,000 hoping to get someone gullible enough to buy them. This quick rise to fame though hasn't come without consequences. A recent news article hit that fans are pranking and storming Holz's home in California to get a glimpse of the kid behind the voice. The vine has also led to some negative parodies online which have garnered some heat. Of course it was a given that "Damn Daniel" and the voice behind it would appear on The Ellen Show. After a hilarious interview between Ellen and the boys, she surprised them with gifts. For Holz, she gave him an epic and brand new surfboard to commemorate his visit to the show. However, Damn Daniel was the one who truly came home with a winning prize by receiving a lifetime supply of Vans shoes thanks to Ellen partnering with Vans HQ. Talk about an awesome gift! "Back at it again with the white vans!"
*BTS × Ellen Spoilers Rant*😤
I just wanted to say WHY!? to anyone who has posted anything regarding BTS on Ellen. It hasn't even fucken aired yet! (The Show is only an hour away from doing so) but NOOOO people just had to post spoilers since of last night. Honestly. You guys couldn't wait? I still love you guys but next time please be considerate of others when posting. Of course I want to know and see everything BTS does but the way they wanted it to be. What was the point of them recording the show and waiting to air it later on when people are going to spoil/post the whole thing before it even had the chance? We dont even know the offical dates for the other shows airings But I basically know everything that happened from The Late Late Show and that one hasn't even aired yet! Like I said I love you guys but next time please be considerate of others feelings when it comes to special things like this. I know I am not alone who feels like this (and the only people I would undertand to be posting & watching the spoilers are K-armys or other Army's that aren't from the US.) But if you are from the US and posted spoilers. Please read the words above again xD. Sorry I just really had to get this off my chest.

Kpop is Actually Born from Korean Protest Songs
Alright so I'm a total history nerd, I majored in East Asian Studies and eat stuff like this up. Read the full (long!) article here - I will try to explain it basically, but its really worth the read. Here we go: It all started with Japan. As you might know, Japan colonized Korea eventually trying to erase Korean culture all together on the peninsula. In the very beginning though, that wasn't the case. Japan was willing to share Korean and Japanese culture, and the Japanese and Korean elite often spoke together and traded pop culture. Japanese elite brought over Western-influenced music because of their connections with the Western world (which Korea didn't interact with other than missionaries at the time) The Korean elite wanted to be modern and successful like Japan, so they adopted this music (called Changga) as their new favorite genre. (You can hear a lot of European influences in early Korean music...) This is where it gets interesting. The Korean elite wanted to be independent of Japan. They wanted Korea to stand alone as a strong nation, not pushed around by China or Japan anymore. They stared the pro-independence movement. Now, most revolutions like this would turn to traditional music, traditional culture to strengthen the country (for example, Korea would use ancient Korean songs to protest the Japanese occupation) but the Korean elite didn't! They wanted Korea to be strong, and to be strong they felt like they needed to modernize - ie be like the West. They used this Changga music (ironically brought to them by Japan) to protest Japanese rule! To this day Korea is always trying to "keep up with" the Western world so that they can be considered modern and powerful. Most things that they do is to modernize and stay trendy because that is how the country has always defined strength. But then, Japan decided to make money off of that... Japan had seen its first real pop music hit in 1914. People were buying records, following tabloids, and really getting into pop culture. That was really the birth of the Japanese music industry. In 1926, Korea had a similar experience. A song called the "Death Song" appeared, sung by Yun Shim-Deok. The singer committed suicide with her lover right after the song was released and the story made HUGE headlines. It was chilling, 'romantic,' and dramatic. Korea ate it up. Japanese record companies came in and started selling the record, selling over 50,000 copies! (In 1926 that number is totally insane!) You can listen to the death song here: The record industry after that was run mainly by the Japanese yakuza and their partnered Korean gangsters. The industry was set up very similar to how it is now, with entertainment industries doing everything in-house (SM has specific song writers that only work for SM, and their artists are actors, singers, models, etc) This is also why so many Kpop artists become actors...because even back in the 1920s musicians couldn't make enough money so the real way to make a living was through acting. That still stands today. So, today's Kpop is based off of this first "Korean pop" hit (the death song) AND protest songs against Japan. So when people say that Kpop is just a copy of Western music, they're sort of right but not in the way that they're thinking. Yes, its a reflection of Western culture, but the reason behind it is that Korea has been fighting to be recognized as a modern, powerful force to be reckoned with since the early 1900s. They want people to know Korea is strong, modern, and a country to look up to, not look down upon. So the next time someone tells you Kpop is a lame copy of American pop - give them this little history lesson. Again, PLEASE read the full article - its so interesting! HERE it is!
