Il y a 25 ans - le 9 juillet 1985: "Pas de clé de la ville pour Madonna".

Years Past: This date in history, from The Bay City Times
Published: Friday, July 09, 2010, 12:00 PM

United Press International contributed to this report.

July 9, 1985

25 years ago

When Mayor Timothy G. Sullivan heard the bare facts about Madonna’s upcoming unveiling in Penthouse magazine he did what he could to enforce moral standards - he reneged on his offer to give her a key to Bay City.
No key to the city for Madonna,” Sullivan said. “We’ll give her a warm welcome, but the key represents the citizens of the community and it would not be in good taste to give her the key given certain circumstances.”
Sullivan is trying to get the Bay City born rockstar to return to Bay City for a “homecoming” concert.
But recent revelations - Bob Guccione’s plans to print nude photos of Madonna in Penthouse - have had “somewhat of a chilling effect” on Sullivan’s plans, as he put it.
The mayor wants to let things cool off.
I think it’s best for all concerned if some distance and time is placed between this disclosure and Madonna’s visit,” he said.
Sullivan said although Madonna grew up elsewhere and went to high school in Rochester, he still considers her a local citizen.
She’s certainly Bay City’s most prominent export,” Sullivan admitted. “Don’t mind the pun, but those are the bare facts.”
She’s achieved a great deal of notoriety and fame for her musical contributions and has brought the community some degree of recognition,” he said. “I’m sure she’ll come back at some time, when this is all over.”
In spite of the uproar created by Guccione’s announcement of the planned 17-page section of nude pictures, reportedly taken in 1979, the flamboyant teen idol has remained mute on the subject.
Word of the projected publication did prompt court action by a photographer who says he never agreed to sell the photos to the magazine and doesn’t want them printed.
The photographer, Herman Kulkens, has filed a $2 million suit over the pictures. He claims he took several nude pictures of Madonna when he lived in Michigan.
Madonna, whose full name is Madonna Louise Ciccone, lived in Ann Arbor and the Rochester area as a teen-ager and has relatives in Bay City.
Madonna’s uncle, Chris Fortin, 30, of Bay City, said there are plenty of “vultures around ready to cash in on his niece’s success."
If you have a reputation people try to stir up some dirt,” he said. "People probably won’t pay much attention to the pictures,” he added.
He said Guccione is trying to stir something up  like he did with Vanessa Williams, the short-term Miss American whose sexually explicit published photos cost her crown in 1983.
The magazine says the Madonna pictures belong to Penthouse because it sent the photographer a $25,000 check, but Kulkens said there was no agreement and that Playboy offered at least $50,000 for the pictures.
The photographer’s suit seeks the return of the photographs and $2 million in punitive damages and costs.
Susan Kulkens, the photographer’s wife, said in an affidavit the picture ere taken “several years ago” and that “Ms. Ciccone signed appropriate model releases granting to my husband the right to print, publish, sell or otherwise disseminate those photographs as he deemed appropriate.”
Guccione said he considered the deal “binding and enforceable...The Kulkens sold their Madonna pictures to us. We have a binding and enforceable agreement.”
A spokeswoman for Madonna said the rock star is “not even really sure” when and where the photos were taken.
She doesn’t feel that she’s done anything she’s ashamed of,” Liz Rosenberg said. “She has acknowledged many times that she posed nude for art classes. They probably were taken in her late teens while she was a student.”
Madonna, 26, catapulted to stardom with two hit albums in the past two years and a featured role in the comedy film, “Desperately Seeking Susan.” Her current hit single, “Into the Groove,” is from the film.
Her hits include “Like a Virgin” and “Crazy For You.” She briefly appeared nude as a rape victim in a low-budget thriller called “A Certain Sacrifice.”
Michael McKenzie, who wrote the biography “Madonna: Lucky Star,” said the nude scenes were tasteful and questioned. Guccione’s claim that the pictures he obtained are “fully explicit.”
Madonna is engaged to be married Aug. 16 to actor Sean Penn.

Citation du Jour sur 'l'acolyte de la danse de Madonna, Lady Gaga'.

Quote of the Day: How the Middle Class Destroyed Romance and Eroticism
More By Heather Horn on June 27, 2010 11:25am

"Late Madonna ... went bourgeois and turned scrawny. Madonna’s dance-track acolyte, Lady Gaga, with her compulsive overkill, is a high-concept fabrication without an ounce of genuine eroticism.
Pharmaceutical companies will never find the holy grail of a female Viagra--not in this culture driven and drained by middle-class values. Inhibitions are stubbornly internal. And lust is too fiery to be left to the pharmacist
- Camille Paglia in The New York Times, using the FDA rejection of a "female Viagra" as a peg for a more thorough examination of sexuality in modern society

Madonna sketches for Material Girl clothing line at Macy’s
by: Rod Hagwood June 23rd, 2010 | 2:00 AM

Madonna sketchy?
You bet.
Today Macy’s released three sketches of Madonna’s “Material Girl” clothing line which will hit store shelves and the retail chain’s web site on August 3rd…just in time for back-to-school.
Which is perfect since the pop superstar says most of the new juniors label’s direction is channeled through her 13-year-old daughter Lourdes, who is borrowing heavily from the world of dance for her inaugural season.
Madonna and Lourdes (nicknamed “Lola” by family and friends) have formed a company called MG ICON, which will produce the collection of apparel, footwear, handbags, jewelry and – wait for it – fingerless gloves.
The collection will retail from $12 to $40.
Look for an ad campaign to launch on June 29. Word has it there is a celebrity muse, but we don’t know who it is…yet.
There will also soon be launches of a site as well as “Material Girl” Facebook and Twitter pages with more imagery and behind-the-scenes video.
Madonna, 51, says that it was fashion designer and good friend Stella McCartney who encouraged the burgeoning design talent of Lola when she was 8 years old.
But it is the Material Mom is a fashion icon. Madonna is currently in Dolce & Gabbana spring/summer ads.  Previously she has modeled in ad campaigns for Louis Vuitton, Versace and the Gap.
In 2007 she created a limited-edition capsule collection with H&M stores called M by Madonna.
Madonna would join a long line of celebrities entering the fashion biz in a big way (as opposed to throwing your name on a line of T-shirts and hoodies):
1. Sarah Jessica Parker is “chief creative officer” for the still-influential designer brand Halston.
2. Lindsay Lohan was jeered for her “artistic adviser” role at the house of Ungaro, for both derivative looks on the runway and for having Miami-based wunderkind Esteban Cortazar to be unceremoniously dumped to make way for the tabloid tart.
3. Beyonce Knowles has added a Sasha Fierce label to her already successful House of Dereon brand. Her fragrance Heat is doing well.
4. Jay Z has expanded his Rocawear line to include made-to-measure customized looks. He has also been quietly buying up other labels and folding them into his fashion empire.
5. Gwen Stefani and the Olsen twins have also had major retail success with their fashion brands.
But it hasn’t gone as well for the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Eve, Paris and Nicky Hilton. Jessica Simpson has had mixed results; her clothing – not so much – but the shoes are doing very well in stores and online.
Madonna’s next film project is said to be a bio-pic about the romance between Wallis Simpson and Edward, the Prince of Wales. The couple (after his abdication in 1936) became the Duke and Duchess of Windsor.

Comment Madonna est vraiment un Rayon de Lumière dans le monde.

By Frances Burscough
Monday, 14 June 2010

We’ve had a rollercoaster relationship over the years, Madonna and I. When I was a teenager I actually wanted to be her; so much so, in fact, that I modelled myself on her like a saddo and at college ended up with the nickname Sadonna.
Then, when I grew up and matured (ever so slightly) I shunned her out of embarrassment for reminding me of all those hideous early-Eighties fashion mistakes I’d made on her behalf. Oh, the leg-warmers! Oh, the pointy bra! Oh, the back-combed perm and the nightclub regulation Ray-Bans!
Fast forward a few years to the Nineties, Madonna reinvented herself for an amazing comeback and I started to like her again. After all, she’d proved defiantly resilient (and there, but for the grace of God, go I, only five years behind her in age).
But soon she started all that weird Jesus/Pope fixation-fantasy stuff (being crucified in stockings and suspenders, snogging statues of Jesus etc ... like you do) and, as a practising Catholic at the time, I felt morally obliged to stop liking her again.
Then she recorded Ray of Light — her best ever song in my humble opinion (and one of the best music videos ever) and I reluctantly welcomed her back into the bosom of my CD collection.
That, however, was short-lived. In 2005, she was off my Christmas card list yet again, after the Live8 appearance where she clearly struggled to contain herself and her gargantuan ego on the main stage at Wembley.
But now, finally, after so much water under the bridge, we’re back on an even keel. I can finally and proudly admit I’m a Madonna fan for keeps. Forever. Amen.
Ok, so her music sucks. She’s still a bit of an embarrassment to my generation, like mutton-dressed as, well, Madonna. She’s doubtlessly an egomaniac, a dodgy religious nut and probably a pain in the ass in every possible way.
But at least she’s doing something worthwhile with her fame and fortune. More than worthwhile, in fact. Exceptional.
Unlike most of her ridiculously wealthy peers, the former Material Girl has spent the best part of the last decade actually doing something positive to alleviate poverty and suffering in the Third World.
For most celebrities, charity begins — and ends — once the paparazzi pack up.
But Madonna has been making poverty history in a real way by pouring her own money into charitable projects in the third world, most specifically in Malawi, the central African country that has been ravaged by famine, drought and disease in recent years and whose population has been reduced by almost a half by Aids.
For the past five years her Raising Malawi foundation has built a £750,000 care centre for orphans of the epidemic, and has provided vital medical supplies, teachers, exercise books, mosquito nets, clothing and shoes for the most needy. The second phase of her relief work included new housing developments, schools and hospitals across the stricken country.
Not only that, but she’s used her considerable influence to raise questions and to bring an end to certain human rights violations in the country, too. The most recent was the case of Steven Monjeza and Tiwonge Chimbalanga, the Malawi couple sentenced to 14 years hard labour for the ‘crime’ of homosexuality.
After publicising their plight on the internet, 50,000 of Madonna’s fans (including me) signed a petition that Madonna personally presented to the country’s president. As a result, he immediately ordered their release. One could say he knew on what side his bread was buttered.
Steven and Tiwonge were freed last Saturday night and the laws in that country are about to be changed forever as a result. Further, Madonna sent a personal “thank you” to every single person who supported the cause.
Think what you like about the woman, her image and her bizarre lifestyle, but no one can deny she is setting a fine example to the rest of us as to how influence and fame can sometimes be used for good.
And, if it encourages other megalomaniac celebrities to compete for humanitarian brownie points, then all the better.
Let’s hope that this becomes one Madonna-inspired fashion trend that can actually benefit mankind in some way.

A Lady Gaga: Madonna l'a fait la première et mieux.

Word of advice to Lady Gaga: Madonna did it first and she did it better
Joanna Molloy
Saturday, June 12th 2010, 4:00 AM

Poor Lady Gaga.
She gets all dolled up - okay, in little more than her underwear - and treks out to Citi Field to catch a Mets game. She doesn't arrive until the fifth inning and she's shocked, shocked to find photographers there.
Then she did what any woman who wants to stay incognito at a ball game would do - strip down to her bra and panties. They were studded, just what you want covering your posterior on a steel stadium seat, no?
Then, for good measure, she stood up to flip the bird at the offending lensmen in front of numerous Little Leaguers actually trying to enjoy baseball on a Thursday afternoon in June.
The lensmen weren't the paparazzi she sings about, but professional sports photographers who were probably paying more attention to the game than to Herself.
All these dramatics wouldn't have anything to do with the fact that she just released a new single, would it?
It's hard to picture actual ladies like Audrey Hepburn or Jackie O flipping the bird - the double bird no less. It's even hard to picture Madonna, to whom Gaga is most compared, engaging in such declasse behavior in a family venue.
But the undeniably talented musician had already chosen marketing over manners a day earlier, when she showed up as a beekeeper at her little sister Natali's high school graduation.
Natali's already living in Lady Gargantua's shadow, and it should have been her day to shine. Wouldn't it have been classy for Miss Thing to hang back in sunglasses and pearls and let Li'l Sis have the spotlight?
Nah, this is all about marketing and business, which Lady Gaga is as good at as she is at dance music. She has three out of the top 25 songs downloaded on iTunes of all time and, as of last month, she'd sold 40 million singles and 15 million albums.
Like her style icon Madonna, she's brilliant at realizing the street is her dance floor, the sidewalk her stage - even her skivvies are costumes. Wherever Lady Gaga is, theater is.
Image, and getting that image swirling around the globe, is everything in the digital age.
In her new single, "Alejandro," all the "shocking" visuals on the checklist are there:
Ripped, shirtless guys who look like Nazi stormtroopers dance around. Check.
Gaga simulates sex with one of them in her underwear. Check.
Gaga puts on a red latex nun's habit and does outrageous things to get controversy going in the Catholic press. Check.
Hmmm . . . Sounds familiar. Wasn't there someone else who messed around with Catholic iconography in a music video? Oh yeah, Madonna, in "Like A Prayer!"
Except then, it wasn't just for marketing purposes. Madonna's actually had meaning, a story. When she hooked up with the saint, it was sexier, yet somehow Okay for Little Leaguers to see.
You know. Like a lady.

Madonna n'a pas libéré les gays du Malawi – elle a juste signé une pétition!

Celebrities don't make the difference they think they do
Hadley Freeman, Tuesday 1 June 2010 21.00 BST

What a slew of dispiriting headlines greeted the first morning of June yesterday: The Fall of the House of Henson and Church; the departure of the only person in the cabinet generally agreed to be any cop whatsoever; Israel.
But it's not all bad! There was one cheering headline amid the dross, like a clean duckling swimming happily and untouched in a giant puddle of BP oil: "Madonna helps free gay Malawians!"
That's right: the singer I once watched masturbate on stage surrounded by Christian paraphanalia (it was my 12th birthday present – this is how important stages of life were marked in the 90s, children) has, it was claimed this weekend, announced that she succeeded where international human rights law failed and effected the liberation of Tiwonge Chimbalanga and Steven Monjeza – imprisoned for 14 years' hard labour for being gay – as successfully as she has destroyed various film directors' careers. And I thought being asked to poke my own mother on Facebook was proof that the modern world was not quite all that 1960s sci-fi films promised.
But did Madonna actually save the Malawian couple? Let us embark on a mystery worthy of the denizens of 221b Baker Street, one we shall call The Mystery of the Celebrity Saviour.
Our story began this weekend, when large swath of the celebrity press spontaneously credited the singer with freeing Chimbalanga and Monjeza. "Malawi Releases Gay Couple After Material One Protests", squealed E!, the entertainment news behomoth named after the substance one must be on in order to watch it. "Madonna Saves Malawian Couple!" trilled another, apparently not having heard of the UN's Ban Ki-moon, who met Malawi's president before the men's release. But then, has anyone ever seen Ban masturbate on stage? Case. Closed.
My mind was wild with the possibilities. Perhaps we should send Madonna to Gaza to sort out that little squabble over there! "Madonna brings peace to the Middle East": a headline with the definite smack of inevitability, I thought, seeing as she had claimed to have overturned homophobia and prison sentences in Malawi. Except that the briefest of glances at Madonna's blog shows this was not what she had claimed at all. Despite at least one celebrity magazine insisting the contrary, all Madonna did this weekend was announce that the Malawian couple has been freed from prison. Yes, she said she signed a petition; no, she has not said it was the petition that liberated them.
This means that we have now reached a rather interesting pocket in time, where the celebrity press puts more store in the power of Madonna than Madonna does herself. It may take a few minutes to digest this concept – but how this has happened is not difficult to fathom. I'm wary of sentences that begin with phrases like "Such is the power of celebrity today . . ." because celebrities have always held sway of some sort over the public, or at least the media. But it is fair to say that celebrities are accorded more time and credit than ever. This is simply because there are more of them, and if you're going to claim Miley Cyrus is worthy of a cover interview, then, logically, a celebrity of Madonna's standing is capable of international miracles. To quote Albert Einstein (very D-list), it's a question of relativity.
This ramping up of hysteria may also be why a (slightly) younger generation of celebrity thinks they really, truly are central to world affairs. To wit, Jude Law recently whined-I-mean-protested that people are too cynical about celebrities who get involved in charities: "You talk to any charity, if they don't have someone like Angie [Jolie. They're friends, you see? Hence the ever-so casual nickname] involved, they find it very hard to raise finances – very hard. People like her are a really important element to the jigsaw of getting things done," he said, offering neither proof nor confirmation that he grasps why people find that so depressing. But let's not blame Jude (entirely). Blame the magazines who feed him his own ego, and the charities and news stories that follow suit in thinking that a celebrity presence really is crucial.
Jude's claim brings us back to the Malawian miracle, and what makes it even more of a miracle is that some of us didn't even know Madonna was involved at all – and yet, nonetheless, the couple were freed. Which is almost as amazing as the thought that, comparatively speaking, Madonna now comes across as almost modest.

La Montée des Jeunes Architectes: Les Protégés trouvent la Gloire avec Madonna et les Musées.

The Rise of Young Architects: Protégés Find Fame With Madonna and Museums

Leaving the Nest, Protégés Find Fame
Published: May 24, 2010

IN the video, on YouTube, Madonna is seen laying the first brick at a school in Lilongwe, Malawi. But to connoisseurs of architecture, the real star of the video is the man standing next to Madonna, alongside a rendering of the 40-acre campus. He is Markus Dochantschi, the German-born, New York-based designer of what is called the Raising Malawi Academy for Girls.
For a young architect it’s hard to imagine a higher-profile project than a school backed by Madonna. And if the attention mostly goes to the pop star, Mr. Dochantschi isn’t complaining. He spent seven years working for the architect Zaha Hadid, a larger-than-life figure, learning how to stand outside the spotlight.
Mr. Dochantschi, who is 42, left Ms. Hadid’s practice in 2002, making him one of a small group of foreign-born architects who have broken away from Pritzker Prize-winning mentors to work on their own in the United States. The ranks include Kulapat Yantrasast, 41, who was born in Thailand, worked for seven years for the Japanese master Tadao Ando and then moved to Los Angeles in 2003. He has already designed one American museum from the ground up and has several other museum buildings in the works.
And there is Florian Idenburg, 34, a Dutch-born architect who spent eight years working for Sanaa, the partnership of Kayuzo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa, designers of the New Museum building on the Bowery. This spring Sanaa was awarded the Pritzker Prize, the profession’s highest honor. Just weeks before, in what seems like a generational passing of the torch, Mr. Idenburg and his wife, Jing Liu, who live and work in Brooklyn, won the Young Architects’ competition sponsored by the Museum of Modern Art and its Queens affiliate, P.S. 1. Their creation — a jaunty installation called Pole Dance — will open at P.S. 1 on June 27.
(One thing all three architects have in common, besides moving thousands of miles from home to set up shop in the United States, is that those shops have somewhat cryptic names: Mr. Dochantschi’s is Studio MDA; Mr. Yantrasast’s, in which he has two partners, is wHY Architecture, and Mr. Idenburg’s is SO-IL Solid Objectives Idenburg Liu.)
The rise of the young architects is good news for the industry, which is in a deep recession — so deep that even star architects aren’t in a position to give work to their former employees. The protégés accept that. Asked about Mr. Ando, Mr. Yantrasast said, like a loyal son, “No one ever handed him anything, and he wants me to learn the same lesson.”
The dance of young architect and mentor is a tricky one, and may involve hurt feelings on one or both sides. When he decided to leave Sanaa, at the end of 2007, Mr. Idenburg published an article in the architecture journal A+U in which he described himself as setting strategy for the office’s modus operandi outside of Japan, a claim that, reportedly, left the firm’s partners miffed; through a spokesman, Ms. Sejima and Mr. Nishizawa declined to speak about Mr. Idenburg.
“I was a handful for them,” Mr. Idenburg said. “I was outside of the Japanese hierarchical system. That was something they had not experienced before.”
Mr. Yantrasast also apprenticed in Japan. He moved from Thailand to Tokyo to pursue a Ph.D. in architecture. But after hearing Mr. Ando lecture, he followed him to Osaka, in 1996, where he worked on Mr. Ando’s competition entry for the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. When Mr. Ando won the competition, he asked Mr. Yantrasast to stick around, and soon he was something of a surrogate son to the childless Mr. Ando and his wife, Yumiko. Mr. Yantrasast left the firm to move to Los Angeles in 2003; he speaks flawless English and is building himself a house with a pool in the Venice neighborhood. When the trustees of the Grand Rapids Art Museum in Michigan were looking for an architect for their new building, they wanted someone up and coming — and chose not Mr. Ando but his protégé.
The Grand Rapids building not only contained a number of green features but was a stunning piece of architecture reminiscent of Mr. Ando’s best work. Mr. Yantrasast, however, sees it as more open than Mr. Ando’s buildings. “The Japanese sensibility,” he said, “is about tension, control and discipline. Thai people love the openness of things.” He said he had unconsciously incorporated that openness into his architecture.
His wHY Architecture now has museum commissions in Tyler, Tex., and Louisville, Ky., and is renovating several galleries at the Art Institute of Chicago, which is known for its exacting standards. Mr. Yantrasast attributes his success, with a modesty that may reflect the years he spent in Japan, to luck. Meanwhile he still acts as the eyes and ears for Mr. Ando in the United States and says he hopes to help his mentor land a job in a major American city. “Frank Lloyd Wright without the Guggenheim would not be the Frank Lloyd Wright we know,” he said, explaining his desire to find a career-capping commission for Mr. Ando.
Mr. Dochantschi too has had his share of luck. After studying in Germany, he made several trips to Japan — he worked for both Arata Isozaki and Fumihiko Maki — but in 1995 went to work for Ms. Hadid. He described her as a “very demanding but very trusting” boss. Back then, she had fewer than a dozen employees, he said, and even fewer built projects.
But in 1997 she won the commission to design the Rosenthal Center for Contemporary Art, in Cincinnati, and with it a chance to prove herself in this country.
Mr. Dochantschi was named project architect, an assignment that soon had him spending most of his time in New York. Eventually he married an American, and when the museum was completed, he decided to stay in Manhattan.
Suddenly he was working out of his apartment and doing projects as small as a kitchen addition in Maplewood, N.J. “I went from master-planning thousands of acres to trying to figure out what kinds of door hinges to buy,” he said.
In 2008 an intern in Mr. Dochantschi’s office met the director of the Raising Malawi Academy and recommended that Mr. Dochantschi design it. He was hired by Philippe van den Bossche, who handles Madonna’s philanthropy, and agreed to donate his time. The campus he designed, on a 40-acre site, consists of a series of origami-roofed buildings made out of mud. (He chose not to use brick because the need to fire brick is leading to rapid deforestation in Malawi.)
Far from being merely a designer, he studied the culture and economy of Malawi to try to make the school not only environmentally, but also educationally, sustainable. He is using some of the same ideas for a school under construction in Congo, also a pro-bono project.
But he also has to pay the bills, which is why a commission in Aachen, Germany, came along just at the right time, he said. There he has designed a $50 million laboratory and classroom building for the University of Applied Science Aachen, which is expected to break ground at the end of this year. It doesn’t look like Ms. Hadid’s work. Mr. Dochantschi isn’t emulating her style, but more her approach to the profession, which, he said, involves patience and the realization that even a losing competition entry is a way to advance ideas. “This isn’t the art world,” he said. “You can’t expect to be an overnight success.”
Asked what he learned from his mentors, Mr. Idenburg too described an approach to work, rather than a style. In the Netherlands, where he grew up and was educated, the prevailing method, under the influence of Rem Koolhaas, was “you diagram a building, and then you build the diagram,” he said. “In Japan they diagram, but it’s a starting point for something more subtle.”
Mr. Idenburg said he found the Dutch architecture world “self-congratulatory” and “based on pseudoscience.” After Ms. Sejima taught at his school in Delft, he went to work for her and Mr. Nishizawa in Tokyo, helped by a Dutch government program that paid most of his salary. When that stipend ran out, he took a pay cut, he said, to work for the firm full time. But when Sanaa won the commission to design the Toledo Museum of Art’s Glass Pavilion, he began spending much of his time in the United States. Then came the New Museum, Sanaa’s first project in New York, where Mr. Idenburg and Ms. Liu settled. (They now have two children.)
In addition to the MoMA project — a low-budget affair on which they will be lucky to break even — Mr. Idenburg and Ms. Liu are designing a gallery in Seoul, South Korea, which will be covered in a stainless-steel mesh that they are having made in China. (Like Mr. Yantrasast and Mr. Dochantschi, he also earns money by teaching.)
Mr. Idenburg agreed that “architecture is a profession of patience,” adding, “For the first 10 years you just hope to survive.” Mr. Dochantschi said it’s hard for young architects to break away from established firms because their low salaries don’t let them accumulate start-up capital. Then too, “you have to wait until you have enough experience,” he said. “But if you wait too long, you’ll have a family to support.”
He added: “So you have to find just the right moment to jump.”

Wendy Shanker: Madonna est ma gourou.

Madonna is my guru
Wendy Shanker has been obsessed with the pop icon since childhood, and even – briefly – became her assistant. She explains how Madonna transformed her life
Wendy Shanker
The Guardian, Monday 10 May 2010

Traditionally, a guru is a spiritual teacher who guides a student on the road to Enlightenment, or finding God. In Sanskrit, "gu" means darkness and "ru" means light. Madonna is my guru.
Relax: I'm a fan, not a fanatic. I don't think she's channelling messages from the Almighty while dolled up as Evita Peron. Besides, I'm Jewish. My people don't worship idols, pop or otherwise. But I disagree with anyone who dismisses Madonna as a pop diva with revolving boyfriends and an obsession with her glutes. For more than a quarter of a century, she has entertained and enlightened us – and now a new generation is becoming M-powered.
The Power of Madonna soundtrack from the hit TV series Glee has put her back at No 1 in the charts again. The kids on the show weren't even born when she first hit the scene, but they all know her as an "icon" and a "Hall of Fame MILF". In the show, music teacher Will Schuester tells them, "Culturally, Madonna's legacy transcends her music because, by and large, the subtexts of her songs are about being strong, independent and confident, no matter what your sex. More than anything, her musical message is about equality." But perhaps cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester – like me, a Madonna obsessive, whose performance of the song Vogue is now a YouTube classic – comes closest to nailing that guru vibe when she says, "Madonna. Simply saying the word aloud makes me feel powerful."

Life is a mystery
At the beginning of her career, Madonna was that naughty girl with the belly button vamping around on MTV. As I watched her grind on a giant boom box on The Virgin tour in 1985, it occurred to me that I was a pre-teen with a lot to learn.
Then I discovered that Madonna, like me, was born and raised in Michigan. That her mother died at an early age, as mine did. That she, too, had an authoritative father. I couldn't relate to her Catholicism, but as a Jew, I shared her turbo-powered association with guilt.
I started to dress with the M-vibe: cut-up sweatshirts, bright leggings, fluorescent lacy bows in my Aussie sprunch sprayed hair. My dad made me take off an Egyptian ankh I wore to school one day. He said it looked like a crucifix.
I saw Madonna perform again on her Blond Ambition tour, during my freshman year at the University of Michigan (the same school Madonna attended, before dropping out to seek fame in New York City). She wheeled around in her whip braid and cone bra, humping the bed and tonguing her dancers. By the time she pranced, Fosse-style, over mirrored chairs and triumphantly sang, "Keep it together . . . forever and ever!" I was a goner.
Was it fascination, or an obsession? In the spring of 1993, I took a page from the Madonna playbook and moved to Manhattan myself, hoping to find my future there . . . and maybe even the Girl herself.

Everyone must stand alone
A month later, I saw her up-close for the first time. My dad and stepmother were in town staying at the Plaza Hotel, where a premiere party for Sleepless in Seattle was being thrown. At the time, "Mo" was BFF with "Ro" (the actor Rosie O'Donnell) and showed up to support her pal. Her dark-rooted, strawberry-blond hair was tautly pulled into pigtail braids. She wore a red dress made from what looked like an Adidas jogging suit, and a man's jacket around her tiny shoulders.
Irrationally, I wanted to cry. It felt like the punch I'd get from seeing my mother in person, even though she'd died when I was a girl. Not that my (non) relationship with Madonna had any connection to my mother – did it?
I couldn't bear gawking with everyone else. My forceful father noticed my suffering, and proceeded to do The Coolest Thing Ever. He ran up to his hotel room, and returned carrying a portable police scanner that looked like a walkie-talkie. (Precisely why he was travelling with a portable police scanner is another story.) He grabbed me and pulled me through a discreet door that led to the Plaza's kitchen. We wound past ovens, refrigerators and bustling cooks, as he pretended to confer on the walkie-talkie and muttered, "So sorry, miss. There must have been some confusion. We'll get you in there right away." He pushed open another door – and we were at the bash.
Hello, Meg Ryan! What's up, Tom Hanks! But Madonna had disappeared. Of course, I don't know what I'd have said had she actually been sitting there, snapping gum and dishing about bisexuality with Rosie. My dad and I waved to our astounded family members, their faces still pressed to the other side of the glass. We each grabbed a gift bag (I still have my cute Sleepless in Seattle nightie) and exited through the red ropes in the lobby. There's a saying that when the student is ready, the teacher appears. Apparently, I wasn't ready yet.

I hear you call my name
In October of 1993, I saw The Girlie Show at Madison Square Garden. Tickets weren't hard to scrape up: Madonna had been dismissed as a super-slut after her unholy trinity of Erotica album/Sex book/Body of Evidence film. She'd recently appeared on Late Night with David Letterman, wearing combat boots and swearing like a sailor (Oh Dave, how the tables have now turned). Madge's sexcapades left me feeling ambivalent, too. I hoped seeing her again would clarify my confusion.
Here's what I wrote in my journal that night: "Just saw The Girlie Show at MSG. Felt proud of Madonna, but distant too. She looked beautiful, never sang better. 'Rain, feel it on my fingertips . . .'"
The next day, a friend scored a single ticket for the last MSG show on the tour. Did I want to go again, by myself? Why not? And here's what I wrote afterwards:
It had finally dawned on me what was at the heart of my fascination: Madonna could show me the way to my heart, my spirit and myself. I just didn't know you called that a "guru".
I wangled my way into an assistant job at MTV, despite not being able to tell Pearl Jam from Nirvana. And a year after I started, my boss pulled a few strings and got me my dream gig: I would serve as Madonna's talent liaison at the 1994 Video Music Awards.
Curiously, when I finally met her, I felt completely calm, totally prepared. She was shockingly petite. Her eyes were a light, clear blue – in all the pictures I'd seen of her, I had never noticed their true colour. Managers, assistants, publicists, bodyguards and label reps surrounded her. A slew of producers assaulted her with instructions. In frustration, she turned to me and said, "I want YOU to know everything."
Now I like to think she was giving me her blessing ("I want you to") and offering me the wisdom of the world ("know everything"). In reality, she was ordering me to keep track of the details that would keep the night running smoothly. I swiftly guided her through Radio City Music Hall. I lined up the Spice Girls outside her dressing-room door (after their audience with their idol, Ginger squealed: "Oh my God, we just met MADONNA!" as they all hopped around on their platform boots). Madonna barely paid attention to me. She couldn't. Everyone wanted something from her. Every move had to be calculated.
The next time I saw her face to face was in 2000
, when I was hosting a women's cable show and she was promoting her film, The Next Best Thing. Madonna had changed the role she played from a swimming instructor to a yoga teacher, reflecting the eastern spirituality she'd explored in the album Ray of Light. I thought I caught a gleam of recognition in those bottomless blue eyes. As a producer clicked a stopwatch to start our three-minute interview, Madonna leaned forward to whisper something in my ear. "Go ahead," she told me, "be brilliant."
Be brilliant, Wendy. Say something incredibly witty and memorable. About a yoga movie. In three minutes. The stopwatch clicked ominously. A cameraman rolled his eyes as I hesitated. And then I realised – Madonna wasn't commanding me to be brilliant, she was giving me permission.
From then on, I followed her advice. Be brilliant, bright and confident. Speak up when superiors take credit for your ideas. Demand respect if a man tries to make you feel small. Work hard, and take the risk. I tried to bring "brilliance" to my career and my relationships.
Then I got really, really sick. Back in 1999, I'd been diagnosed with a rare auto-immune disease called Wegener's Granulomatosis, in which the body unwittingly attacks the sinuses, lungs and kidneys. At the end of 2003 it flared up again, forcing me into intense treatment with steroids and chemotherapy. I swore I wouldn't become one of those people who gets ill and discovers The Importance of Life – but I couldn't help asking myself some big questions. And, after modifying the directives of western doctors and embracing some eastern alternatives, I began to heal – so I travelled the world to see Madge in concert.
During each show, I'd have a moment when I would feel an almost religious ecstasy as I bounced along to Into the Groove, or crooned What It Feels Like For a Girl. In 2006, I returned to Madison Square Garden for the Confessions on a Dance Floor tour, feeling so grateful to be in a body that was strong enough to twirl around. As we revved up to the chorus of Ray of Light ("And I feel . . . like I just got home!"), I hit the spiritual jackpot. The expanse of the Garden, every seat in the house, radiated with golden light.

And it feels like home
As Madonna gets older and writes more of her own songs, her artistic vision matures. I often wonder if her love songs are written about a man in her life, or a bigger spirit that envelops all of us.
I think Madonna is still searching for her (inner) guru. It shocks me when she's criticised for changing and reinventing herself. What, she was supposed to remain a sex-crazed dance machine, power-hungry exhibitionist, ambient earth mother, lady of the manor, charitable Kabbalah scholar, or African adoptive mom for ever? We all evolve – Her Madgesty just does it on a bigger stage, with a better wardrobe.
A guru is like a parent who raises a child to flourish on her own. What values does Madonna impart to us? Female empowerment. Body consciousness. Religious and sexual tolerance. Cycles of imperfection and improvement. Evolution of the self. You got a problem with that?
Sure, it's possible that Bruce Springsteen could direct you towards your true purpose ("Baby, you were born to run"). Or U2 – though I reckon they still haven't found what they're looking for. Bono once called Madison Square Garden "rock and roll's great cathedral", and more than once I've had an ecstatic experience there – thanks to my guru. Maybe, all this time, Madonna has been guru-ing you too, and you just didn't know it.

Wendy Shanker is the author of The Fat Girl's Guide to Life. Her new book, Are You My Guru: How Medicine, Meditation & Madonna Saved My Life, will be published in September.

L'histoire derrière la couverture de "Libération" avec Madonna en 1987.

Y en a qu’une, c’est la une
Livres 04/05/2010 à 00h00
Détournements de titre de film, de livre, de slogan; citation, calembour, formule choc, provoc… De l’art de trouver le ton juste chaque jour. Making of.

«Une une? C’est un temps. Un état d’apesanteur, entre 18 heures et 22 heures, où l’on a le sentiment que tout est possible. L’impression d’être embarqué dans la confection d’un objet à la fois très en phase avec le reste du journal mais aussi très différent
Pour cet éditeur, longtemps responsable de la première page, l’exercice est définitivement un moment à part dans la vie du quotidien. La une se monte au «Central», à l’étage réunissant la maquette, la photo, l’édition, le prépresse et la direction de la rédaction. Chaque soir, les pages Evénement bouclées -quand tout se passe bien-, les journalistes concernés viennent tester leur sens du bon mot, de la formule qui marque ou du titre qui claque. «Qu’est ce qu’on veut dire», «comment le résumer?», «le texte et la photo fonctionnent-ils ensemble?» Depuis plus de 9000 numéros, la même alchimie se répète. Un caractère un peu plus gros que d’habitude, une couleur qui vient appuyer l’image, un dessin, une émotion qui se dégage… Et toujours ce souci de surprendre ; d’être là où l’on ne nous attend pas ; tout en sachant que le lendemain, toutes les radios matinales nous attendent pour alimenter leurs chroniques. «On intègre une sorte de grammaire du titre. Il faut gérer le ton, que ce soit plaisant, convaincant, que cela donne envie d’acheter tout en étant immédiatement accessible
Blague Carambar. Détournements de titre de film, de livre, de slogan; citation, calembour, formule choc, provoc… La frontière est souvent mince entre le titre qui va faire mouche, la blague Carambar et le cliché que l’on retrouvera partout. A la mort de Coluche, en 1986, on pouvait parier que la plupart des journaux allaient titrer «Tchao Pantin», en référence au film de Claude Berri, sorti trois ans plus tôt avec l’humoriste en vedette. Libé évite le piège avec un «C’est un mec, y meurt…» devenu culte. Même logique lorsqu’Augusto Pinochet, venu se faire soigner en Grande-Bretagne en 1998, voit son immunité rejetée par la Chambre des Lords, le jour même de 83e anniversaire. Libération ne croit guère à son extradition en Espagne afin d’y être jugé pour génocide, et refuse le titre politique ou moralisateur. La manchette «Happy birthday», accompagnée du visage fermé du vieux dictateur en uniforme, dose avec réussite insolence et humour. «L’URSS présente ses meilleurs vieux», «Tout fout Lacan», «L’odieux du stade» (au lendemain de la bousculade meurtrière au stade de Sheffield en Grande-Bretagne, le 15 avril 1989), «Mururoa, son amour», «Cinq ans ferme» (après la réélection de Chirac en 2002), «Waterbraguette»… Ce cocktail est devenu la marque de fabrique de Libé. «C’est un travail d’ajusteur, poursuit notre éditeur, parfois au signe près. C’est vraiment de la marqueterie
Typographie. Souvent, l’ampleur de l’événement exclut la plaisanterie. Guerre, catastrophe, attentats, mort célèbre… La photo s’impose alors «plein pot» et les mots s’effacent ou se font minimalistes. Ainsi, lors de la chute des Twin towers. «Ce soir-là, nous étions nombreux à chercher un titre de une. Les adjectifs fusaient pour qualifier cette chose inimaginable vue à la télévision, raconte une rédactrice en chef. Et soudain, un éditeur a dit "attendez, on va juste mettre 11 septembre 2001". L’idée nous a semblé inouïe, mais il avait raison, la date qui traverserait l’histoire se suffisait à elle-même. Ce numéro de Libération a reçu le prix de la meilleure une de l’année.» D’autres fois, c’est la typo qui reprend ses lettres de noblesse, supplantant des images prévisibles ou déjà vues. «NON», en énorme et en capitales, au lendemain de l’éviction de Lionel Jospin lors du premier tour de la présidentielle de 2002. «LA GUERRE», le 17 janvier 1991, jour de l’invasion de l’Irak par les forces de l’ONU...
Passons sur les bourdes. Le 15 septembre 1982, sur la foi d’une dépêche de l’AFP, Libération titre «La baraka de Gémayel» pensant que le président libanais est sorti indemne de l’attentat qui lui a en fait coûté la vie. Une vraie scoumoune! Et comme un malheur n’arrive jamais seul, ce même jour, à côté de l’article fautif, un dessin de Soulas ironise sur l’accident de Grace de Monaco survenu deux jours plus tôt. Là encore, le communiqué officiel ne faisait état que de légères blessures… Plus anecdotique, en novembre 1993, une édition annonçant la qualification de la France pour la Coupe du monde de foot aux Etats-Unis a été rattrapée de justesse à l’imprimerie; les pages avaient été envoyées quelques minutes avant la fin du match France-Bulgarie, perdu in extremis par les Bleus.
Pas masochiste. Il arrive enfin qu’un détail ou un regret de dernière minute modifie l’objet patiemment construit. Le soir de la réélection de François Mitterrand, en 1988, la manchette «Bravo l’artiste» s’est transformée en «L’artiste» en deuxième édition. «On s’est dit que le sens y était et qu’il était inutile d’ajouter "bravo"», se souvient un rédacteur. Récemment, lors de la visite de Joey Starr et Kool Shen au journal, «NTM nique Libé» a été remplacé par un «Libé nique NTM», insolent mais pas masochiste.
Et quand on est chanceux, une erreur technique peut même améliorer l’original. En août 1987, Libération annonce le méga concert de Madonna à Sceaux avec une manchette «Mado à pleins Sceaux», accompagnée du visage de la chanteuse en couleur et en gros plan. Le titre saute à l’imprimerie et seule la photo est imprimée. Lumineux! L’événement déjà ultra-médiatisé se passait de titre. «Quelqu’un a eu le flair de dire que c’était mieux comme ça et on n’a pas rectifié le tir», raconte un journaliste.
Aujourd’hui, bon nombre d’anciens jurent que l’effet était voulu au départ. De l’art de réécrire l’histoire des manchettes…
