Here is What Madonna is Reportedly Going to Perform at the Grammys [SPOILERS]



Madonna will be joining Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, and presumably vocalist Mary Lambert (since she tweeted on Friday that rehearsals were "THE BOMB") for a performance of the gay rights anthem "Same Love" at the Grammys, according to in-the-know bloggers and entertainment sites.

Us Weekly reports:

The "Material Girl" herself, meanwhile, hinted earlier this week that she would be performing during the live show. "My lips are almost sealed! I can't say anything more. #itsasecret," she wrote on Friday, Jan. 24, with a picture of herself covered up in a thin black veil.

She added: "It's official! I'm off my crutches and I'm looking for the perfect pair of heels to wear to the Grammys." (Last Thursday, the seven-time Grammy winner sustained a minor injury from dancing in high heels.)

No further details on the number were available.

Massive Madonna Collection of Singer's Late Gay Friend Martin Burgoyne to Be Auctioned

The collection of Madonna's close friend Martin Burgoyne, who died of AIDS-related causes in 1986, is due to be auctioned by Burgoyne's parents on February 9 in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Burgoyne was an artist and bartender at Studio 54 and the subject of the track "In This Life" from her 1992 album Erotica.

The AP reports Burgoyne "managed her first tour and drew the cover image of Madonna for her 1983 ‘Burning Up’ EP album cover. They partied with artists Andy Warhol, Keith Haring and others. He was raised in England and went to New York to study art at the Pratt Institute."

The collection to be auctioned includes a large number of photos and drawings from that era:

There’s an original hand-drawn portrait of Burgoyne by Andy Warhol. There’s an original invitation to a fundraiser for Burgoyne by Keith Haring — a party written about in the New York Times in September 1986 as AIDS was devastating a generation of mostly young gay men, including Burgoyne. The story is heartbreakingly sad, not only because of its foreshadowing of Burgoyne’s death, but of prevalent attitudes in that era toward those with HIV and AIDS.

Studio 54 owner Steve Rubell noted in the story that “people could be in the same room with someone infected with the AIDS virus without contracting it.” Madonna was at that party, the Times noted.

Madonna has turned to Adele for help putting together a "grown up" album of ballads, the Mail Online reports:

Queen of reinvention Madge has asked the 25-year-old songstress to help her, promising in return to write a song for Adele's next record.  'They have met in London and plan  a writing session to produce a track for each other's new albums,' says a source close to 55-year-old Madonna.

Is Timor Steffens Madonna's New Boy Toy? - PHOTO


Madonna is reportedly dating 26-year-old back-up dancer Timor Steffens.

The Daily Mail writes:

The young dancer joined Madonna on her recent family skiing trip to Switzerland.

In a number of Instagram shots, Timor is seen posing with Madonna's 13-year-old son Rocco, suggesting that he is already friendly with the family. Timor's Twitter account describes him as a 'Creative Director/Choreographer/Actor' and already has over 24 thousand followers - which is surely due to increase.

According to Radar, Madonna is said to have brought Timor along to designer Rudolph Valentino's private New Year's Eve Party in Gstaad, Switzerland.
