Madonna Captures Instagram's Attention With Arab-Israeli Kiss: PHOTO


No stranger to controversy, Madonna has once again found herself embroiled in a fevered internet debate, this time over one of her recent Instagram posts that appeared to depict a young Orthodox Jewish man and Palestinian man about to kiss. She captioned the photo, "This image is 💯. ❤️#rebelhearts". However, though the intent of Madonna's posting may be unchanged, the reality behind the photo is that it was first created to promote a gay party, as reports:

The photo is actually of two Israeli Jews: Imri Kalmann, 28, and Dekel Aiden, 24, two Tel Aviv party promoters who host a periodic gay club party called Dreck.

“I am not really Orthodox and he is not really Palestinian,” said Kalmann.

The picture first appeared last summer on a poster promoting a Dreck party in Tel Aviv. Kalmann said his team planned on something racier, but changed its concept after the start of Israel’s war with Gaza.

“We decided to do a photo shoot to say something that we feel regarding the war.”

Some commenters on Instagram were not pleased with the lack of authenticity behind the photo:

“You do not know at all what is happening here in Israel. Do not post such a picture here again,” one wrote.

Others were supportive: “Love is love my friends — doesn’t matter if you are Jewish or Muslim or whatever.”

The gay party that the photo was originally intended to support, Dreck, has also come under fire for using imagery familiar in ISIS' beheadings to promote its parties.

With every celebrity comes hundreds of impersonators and look-a-likes. 

"There's a statistic somewhere in the world that says you have approximately two dozen to thirty-six doppelgangers in the world," states Bill Clinton impersonator Dale Leigh in the new film Just About Famous. The documentary, which recently completed a successful Kickstarter campaign and is currently making its way through the film festival circuit, chronicles the surreal life of Leigh and other celebrity impersonators as they converge at the annual Sunburst Convention for Celebrity Tribute Artists in Orlando, Florida.  

The film features some spot on impersonations of Elvis, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Lady Gaga, KISS, Madonna, Hugh Hefner, Barack Obama, Whoopi Goldberg, Dame Enda Everage, Britney Spears, and other A-listers.

Madonna Sucks Face with Drake at Coachella: VIDEO


Madonna has been known to punctuate her performances with a news-making kiss.

And the one she hoovered on Drake at Coachella is making news for its length, its intensity, and Drake's rather negative reaction.

Seems as though this has been in the wings for a while, though, given that he named a song for her and she has said that "the lifelong ambition I still want to fulfill is to go on a dream date with Drake — and only kiss him."



Madonna responded to the commotion over the kiss on Instagram:
