I will vote for him even if Madonna did endorse him.
She's trying to be controversial and no one really cares.
It's actually embarrassing because she's trying to sound hood.
In his autumn, before the winter, comes man's last mad surge of youth
She does sound like she's being sarcastic in the clip. It's too bad the clip was so short. It is possible that she believes he is Muslim, which I think is pardonable. I don't think a person's religion has any bearing on their post as president, it just doesn't matter. Besides that, so many people and news corporations have stated that Obama is Muslim that there are now plenty of people who believe it.
Well, she said
I agree with her."It means there is hope in this country. And Obama is fighting for gay rights, so support the man, goddamnit."
She was being satirical with those who do call him that. Has the OP ever read the Onion? I highly suggest it... just don't take it literally lol.
Uh. Duhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.UPDATE, 9/26: As you might have guessed, Madonna was merely joking. “I was being ironic on stage,” she said in a statement. “Yes, I know Obama is not a Muslim — though I know that plenty of people in this country think he is. And what if he were? The point I was making is that a good man is a good man, no matter who he prays to. I don’t care what religion Obama is — nor should anyone else in America.”
The fact that people needed that explained to them is just really sad.
Yes because some don't understand what irony or satire is... doesn't surprise me she had to explain it.
Madge has to do a lot of explaining lately. She's just an old publicity whore has been. So typical.
Inspired - but too tired.
Madonna doing/saying some controversial or being a "publicity whore" is something new or surprising? It is what she does and has been doing since forever.
She doesn't even live here anymore...
...sounds about right.
^ Can't hear that.
But she is fun, right? Remember when she said...
Oh, never mind.
I recently heard that its been 30 years since Madonna released her first single. "Everybody". 30 years!
^^ until she announces the concert is cancelled for whatever reason... LOL
i was just thinking of Madonna and wondered if given a choice would you have a short-lived but incredibly critically acclaimed career, or a long one but without critical acclaim?
Why the hell is she choosing SUPERSTAR as the 4th single why not I'm addicted?
^ "Superstar"!? wow....I am so against that song being a single, but objectively I think people will like it. I enjoy it a lot more than "TUTR".
I agree though--what are they waiting for? Release "I'm Addicted"!!!
(^ Incidentally, just to state the über-obvious, those gratuitously shirtless dancers are smokin' hot. )
Also done for the "VMA Awards" performance (0:19-0:35) of it:
Madonna's official website says that she filmed a full episode of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" that will air on October 29th! I can't wait!!
Can't wait! Love Ellen!
Might be a good time to check for airborne swine ... because Elton John's husband has finally stopped TRASHING Madonna ... and has begun to sing her praises.
Of course, David Furnish fired some nasty shots at Madge back in January she beat out Elton for Best Original Song at the Golden Globes -- calling the singer desperate and narcissistic
But on his way out of the Abbey in West Hollywood last night, Furnish insisted there's no more bad blood between the two ... telling the paps, "I think she's a great artist ... she's an inspiration to all of us."
When pressed about the sincerity of his comments -- Furnish said, "Seriously ... I love her."

Its on multiple lists even on billboard itself. MDNA flopped here, but still went 7XPlatinum in a few countries.
From wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Madonna_(entertainer)Madonna (born Madonna Louise Ciccone /tʃɪˈkoʊneɪ/ chi-koh-nay; August 16, 1958) is an American singer, songwriter, actress, director, dancer, and entrepreneur. She has sold more than 300 million records worldwide and is recognized as the world's best-selling female recording artist in history by Guinness World Records. Considered to be one of the "25 Most Powerful Women of the Past Century" by Time for being an influential figure in contemporary music, she is known for continuously reinventing both her music and image, and for retaining a standard of autonomy within the recording industry. Critics have praised her diverse musical productions which have also been known to induce controversy. Billboard ranked her at number two, behind only The Beatles, on the Billboard Hot 100 All-Time Top Artists, making her the most successful solo artist in the history of the chart
Congratulations Lady Madonna.
This lady is a shrewd business woman. She is the rainbow queen of reinvention. She should do the next album as full MDMA and really be a major influence of ray of light with Dance music used in a new form.
In 2012, she was crowned the "Greatest Woman In Music" by VH1.
A year ago I met her in a market that sells American food not far from where she lives in London. I never ask for autographs and usually do not say anything to stars and respect there privacy. However this time I went over to her and said thanks for the music Ms Ciccone she said thank you. Later someone went over and said Hi Maddy she was not smiling. She is a very nice person.
Is she a bitch?
She so doesn't care, she started a whole fashion trend in the entire 80's and was the biggest artist of the decade.The tour was met with strong reaction from religious groups for her performance of "Like a Virgin", during which two male dancers caressed her body before she simulated masturbation. The Pope asked the general public and the Christian community not to attend the concert. A private association of Catholics calling themselves Famiglia Domani also boycotted the tour for its eroticism. In response, Madonna said, "I am Italian American and proud of it ... The tour in no way hurts anybody's sentiments. It's for open minds and gets them to see sexuality in a different way. Their own and others"; she declared that the Church "completely frowns on sex ... except for procreation." The Laserdisc release of the tour won Madonna a Grammy Award in 1992 for Best Long Form Music Video.
The Immaculate Collection, Madonna's first greatest-hits compilation album, was released in November 1990. It included two new songs, "Justify My Love" and "Rescue Me". The album was certified diamond by RIAA and sold over 30 million copies worldwide, becoming the best-selling compilation album by a solo artist in history. "Justify My Love" reached number one in the U.S. and top ten worldwide. Its music video featured scenes of sadomasochism, bondage, same-sex kissing and brief nudity. The video was deemed too sexually explicit for MTV and was banned from the network. Madonna responded to the banning: "Why is it that people are willing to go and watch a movie about someone getting blown to bits for no reason at all, and nobody wants to see two girls kissing and two men snuggling? ... MTV has been good to me, and they know their audience. If it's too strong for them, I understand. Although, half of me thought I was going to get away with it." The second single, "Rescue Me", became the highest-debuting single by a female artist in Hot 100 chart history at that time, entering at number 15 and peaking at number nine.
just a matter of time before some other female solo pop artist will be taking that spot i think.
I thought Mariah Carey had this spot locked up for good and was close to passing Michael Jackson. The only songs I like by Madonna are Frozen, You'll See and La Isla Bonita
Holiday and Vogue are my favorites !
1. Impressive Instant 2.Bedtime Story 3. Jump 4.Music 5. Hung UP 6.Love Profusion 7. Nothing Really Matters 8.Masterpiece9. 4 Minutes 10. I'm addicted
She has more dance #1's then any other artist in history. Fuck every single from MDNA charted #1 in the clubs/dance. Turn Up The Radio spent 3-4 weeks at #1.
43 #1 hits on the dance chart.
How is this news? This has been established for a long time, but your topic title is misleading. Because, you forgot to note a few things:
1. She ranks #2 on the Hot 100 Artists (this has to do with singles performing on the Hot 100)
2. She does not have the most #1 singles on the Hot 100 for a solo artist (Mariah Carey holds that distinction with 18)
3. While I love me some Madonna songs (Vogue, Frozen, Papa Don't Preach, and a few others) this distinction doesn't make her history's second biggest artist. Billboard only tracks an artist's performance in the US. Furthermore as previously stated this is about Hot 100 performance.
4. Madonna is ranked #16 for album sales in the US. Among female artists, she ranks #2, trailing Barbara Streisand (again, US only). She might drop to #3 though as Mariah trails her only by 0.5 million units and her upcoming album will probably allow her to pass Madonna if it does reasonably well.
5. Should Madonna sell 0.5+ million more albums in the US, she will become the #15 ranking artist in terms of albums sold in the US as she currently trails Bruce Springsteen (who is #15) by just ~0.5 million album sales. Then again given Mariah's upcoming release Madonna will probably be pushed down to #17, so her passing Bruce could just bring her back to #16 again. Either that or she will trade places with Mariah again and push her back down to #17.
6. The biggest artist in the US are probably the Beatles since they rank #1 in both album sales and Hot 100 performance.
