Dix Cadeaux Essentiels pour les Fans de Madonna.
By Jennifer Sale, Yahoo! Contributor Network - December 18, 2010 1:11 AM PST
We Madonna fans really don't need a reason to celebrate the Superior Mother Goddess of Pop. It doesn't matter if there's anything new she's doing we're always excited to have a Madonna inspired gift! So if you have a devout worshiper, I mean fan of the Material Girl in your life, here's a list of gifts you can give them for the holidays.
1. Something from "Material Girl" at Macy's.
We bought all of those track suits and other accessories when Madonna launched her mini-line at H&M, but now we want Material Girl! Anything will do, really. Yes, we know we're probably too old for most of it, but who cares, they're Madonna clothes.
2. Membership to Madonna's new gym "Hard Candy" in Mexico City.
Sure, it's going to cost you a lot of Pesos, and we'll probably never even go there, but how cool would it be just to whip out your membership card to one of Madonna new gyms?
3. The directors cut of "Evita" on DVD.
We've already worn out 5 VHS copies, and a couple of DVDs so we could always use a new copy of the movie that sorta proved Madonna can act. Or lip sync convincingly, since she really doesn't talk throughout the movie. Added bonus? Antonio Banderas. Always a winner.
4. A hot, much younger Brazilian boyfriend.
Self explanatory. We want our own Jesus Luz!
5. A donation to Madonna's charity "Raising Malawi" in our name.
We always want Madonna to be proud of us. So make a donation to "Raising Malawi" where her two adopted children David Banda and Mercy James are from, to help a great cause, and make us believe that we did something good for the world while making Madonna happy.
6. Make all of our concert T-shirts into a cozy quilt...except from the "Reinvention" tour...those are the best.
We haven't been able to wear most of our concert shirts since 1995 anyway, so you can be awesome and turn them into one of those nifty T-shirt quilts! Just don't touch our favorite shirts from the "Reinvention" and "Blonde Ambition" tours. We love to still wear those.
7. Her "Sex" book...we're old enough to have it now.
This book freaked our parents out back in High School, because it was a big coffee table book full of a naked Madonna photographed with other naked people. We haven't bought it since then because we are still afraid of our mother freaking out a bit, even if we are old enough now. But if you get it as a gift, it's ok.
8. A Ringtone of "I'm going bananas," from "I'm Breathless" (Dick Tracy Soundtrack for you young'uns)
Any die hard fan of Madonna's has the Dick Tracy inspired "I'm Breathless" Album at the top of the must have list. One of the songs on there is "I'm Going Bananas" where Madonna sings a silly Latin song in a silly Latin voice. She's probably a little embarrassed that she recorded it 15 years ago. But it would seriously be the greatest ringtone of all time.
9. The jacket from "Desperately Seeking Susan"
When we were kids and saw "Desperately Seeking Susan" that green metallic "Dollar Bill" jacket officially became the coolest thing we have ever seen and have wanted one ever since. Sure, twenty-plus years later it is hideous and we would embarrass you to death if we wore it out in public, but we want one.
10. 4 Goldfish named Lola, Rocco, David and Mercy
Humor us here. We didn't have the guts to name our own kids that, so give us a little goldfish bowl and let us have our little Madonna family. Even better if you find a big goldfish that can be "mommy Madonna." We promise to clean the tank and feed them every day!
So there you have it, the ultimate gift list for Madonna fans. Any one of these gifts would make us happy, and you would be our favorite gift giver, ever because you get us.

Ordre au fan de rester éloigné de la maison de NY de Madonna.
Fan told to stay away from Madonna's NYC home
Fri Oct 8, 8:56 pm ET
NEW YORK – He might want to tell Madonna he's crazy for her, but a fan who was arrested while proclaiming his love near her New York City
apartment is being told to stay at least 10 blocks away.
A judge made that a condition as he set bail at $20,000 on Friday for Robert Linhart.
The 59-year-old retired firefighter was arrested last month. Authorities say he scrawled messages of adoration for the "Crazy for You" and "Material Girl" singer outside her apartment building near Manhattan's Central Park.
Linhart's lawyer has said the messages weren't threatening — just signs of being a fan.
A grand jury declined to indict Linhart on graffiti charges. He pleaded not guilty Friday to resisting arrest and weapons possession. Authorities have said he had a knife and ice pick.
Fan Ordered To Stay Away From Madonna
09 October 2010 14:12
A man who was arrested for loitering outside Madonna's New York home last month (Sep10) has been ordered to stay away from the pop superstar.
Robert Linhart, a retired firefighter, was taken into custody in September (10) after the singer's security guards spotted him outside her Manhattan apartment. Police allegedly found a knife on Linhart's person as well as an ice pick in his car.
On Friday (08Oct10), Linhart pleaded not guilty to resisting arrest and weapons possession. A grand jury declined to indict him on graffiti charges, according to the Associated Press.
The judge released the 59 year old on $20,000 (£13,300) bail on the condition that he stays at least 10 blocks away from the Material Girl's property near Central Park.

Judge draws 'border' for Madonna stalker
By LAURA ITALIANO

A Manhattan judge drew a borderline around Madonna's Upper East Side apartment -- ordering a love-lorn retired firefighter to stay at least ten blocks away.
The order came this afternoon, as the hot-headed former fire-eater, Robert Linhart, 59, pleaded not guilty to charges he resisted arrest -- and possessed a knife and an ice-pick -- while waving hand-scrawled love-professing posters outside her Upper East Side apartment last month.
"A condition of his release will be that he not be within ten city blocks of Central Park West and 64th Street," Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Laura Ward told Linhart, who was attempting to make $20,000 cash bail last night.
"He can visit his son somewhere else," the judge said, when Linhart's lawyer said that his son works in a nearby firehouse. "Somebody else can pick it up for him," the judge added, when the lawyer said that Linhart's car had been parked nearby.
Prosecutors today had asked that three times as much bail be set -- $60,000 -- noting that Linhart had a DWI conviction from the late '90s, and was facing felony weapons charges.
Linhart had twice parked outside the singer's apartment, where he proceeded to open cans of paint and create poster-board signs in her honor.
"Madonna, I need you," read one. "Tell me yes or no," read another. "If it's yes, my dream will come true. If it's no, I will go. XXX."
Pedestrians had to walk into the road to get around Linhart's sappy arts and crafts project, according to prosecutors. But when cops confronted him, he allegedly shouted, "I don't give a f--- I'm a retired police officer" and flailed his arms to avoid arrest.
There was a gravity knife in his fanny pack the first time he was busted, and an ice pick in his car the second time, prosecutors allege
Linhart, who retired from the FDNY in 1998, must return to court November 9.

A Manhattan judge drew a borderline around Madonna's Upper West Side apartment yesterday -- ordering a lovelorn retired city firefighter to stay at least 10
blocks away if he makes bail.
The directive came after Robert Linhart, 59, pleaded not guilty to charges that he resisted arrest -- and possessed a knife and an ice pick -- while waving hand-scrawled, love-professing posters outside the singer's home last month.
"A condition of his release will be that he not be within 10 city blocks of [Madonna's address on] Central Park West," Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Laura Ward said of Linhart, who was attempting to make $20,000 cash bail last night.
Prosecutors yesterday asked that bail be set at $60,000, noting Linhart has a DWI conviction and is facing felony weapons charges in the Madonna case.

Crazed Madonna fan Robert Linhart cleared of stalking charges, indicted for weapons possession

A love-sick retired firefighter busted outside Madonna's building was released on bail Friday but ordered to stay far away from the pop icon.
Robert Linhart, 59, pleaded not guilty to weapons possession and resisting arrest.
A Manhattan judge set his bail at $20,000 on the condition he not step within 10 blocks of Madonna's pad at Central Park West and W. 64th St.
He imposed the restrictions even though prosecutors did not pursue stalking charges against the 21-year FDNY veteran - who was busted twice in one week outside the star's apartment with a knife, a box cutter and a big stick.
Though they did not ask for an order of protection for the singer, prosecutors made it clear Linhart is obsessed with Madonna.
"He had signs that were directed at Madonna," Assistant District Attorney Tatiana Fernandes said, arguing to keep Linhart behind bars. "There is a fixation on her."
Linhart's lawyer insisted he's not a danger to Madonna or anyone else.

Un fan arrêté à l'extérieur de la maison de Madonna.
23 September 2010 Last updated at 09:32 GMT
A Madonna fan has been arrested after scrawling messages of adoration outside the star's New York apartment building.
Retired fireman Robert Linhart, 59, was arrested on Tuesday while spray-painting messages on the pavement to the singer asking to meet her.
He was charged with creating graffiti, resisting arrest and criminal possession of a 7.5 inch (19cm) ice pick which was recovered from his car.
A Manhattan judge has set his bail at $20,000 (£13,000).
One of Mr Linhart's messages read: "M, the universe brought us together in 1992 and again this year in Prague. Meet me please."
His lawyer, Cheryl Bader, defended his actions telling the New York Daily News: "There was no threatening conduct. My understanding is it's not a crime to adore Madonna. If it were, the court would be a lot more crowded."
The New York fire department said Mr Linhart retired in 1998.

La charité des fans de Madonna pour Raising Malawi.
Name change Madonna fans plan new venture
Published Date: 01 February 2010

They changed their names in honour of their idol.
And now three Madonna superfans from Leeds are hoping their new fundraising venture will work Like A Prayer and raise lots of money for the star's favourite African charity.
And this time they are hoping a bit of help from another music legend, Michael Jackson, will make the night a real Thriller.
Gemma Mitchell and twins Lianne and Emma Dawson – also known by their Material Girl-inspired monikers – are holding a themed charity night in honour of the official King and Queen of pop to raise money for Raising Malawi.
The charity is supported by Madonna, whose adopted son David Banda was born in Malawi.
Gemma said: "Raising Malawi is such an amazing charity and as we are such huge Madonna fans we really wanted to do something to support it. We are looking forward to paying tribute to them both and raising lots of money for the charity."
Gemma, Lianne and Emma, all 23 and from Wortley, are former pupils of West Leeds High School, and appeared in the pages of the YEP last year when they all changed their names in homage to Madonna.
Twins Lianne and Emma are now officially called Lianne Madonna Vogue On The Cover Of A Magazine McHale Dawson, and Emma Madonna Confessions On A Dance Floor McHale Dawson.
And their best friend ditched plain old Gemma Mitchell in favour of Gemma Madonna True Blue Strike A Pose Carroll McHale Dawson Me Me Mitchell.
Performers at the fundraiser will include professional Michael Jackson impersonators from the MJ Fusion Dance Company, who recently appeared on the Move Like Michael Jackson TV show.
The fundraising pop party, called A Royal Night with Music from the King and Queen of Pop, will be held at the Elbow Room in Leeds on Thursday. Tickets are £4 on the door.

Why 2009 was KT’s year in music

Madonna! (Yes, Madonna!)
Another item on my bucket list was catching Madonna live. Last March, I had pestered my friend Monique in Paris to grab me a
ticket to Mother Madge’s gig at Bercy.
That same day, I ran an errand at Place Vendome for a friend, and just my luck—I discover from a mob of people in front of the Ritz that Madonna was about to leave the hotel! A mix of paparazzi, curious tourists, and die-hard Madge fans had been waiting for two hours to catch her. Thanks to my minute size, I was able to squeeze in and weasel my way to the front of the crowd to catch her graceful, makeup-less exit! I posted the pic I took on Facebook and Twitter as soon as I could!
My Madonna sighting brought the concert experience to a whole new level. Imagine, I was just a few feet away from her earlier that day! And I really thought I knew what to expect from her concert as I’ve seen a lot of her videos but I was wrong. She has so much power live—I could not help from dancing like a lunatic, her energy is unparalleled! She was over an hour late to the gig, but the show was worth the wait (and not without an MJ Tribute either—a doppelganger of his made a cameo onstage). I especially love how she now totes an electric guitar for her gigs, she can even pull off “Rock Star” with aplomb. That woman is a force of nature, and more!
After the show, I was pleasantly surprised to see Marco and Jackie Antonio who managed to grab some last-minute tickets to catch the gig. From Manila, all the way to Paris, Madonna fans unite!
