Christopher Ciccone revealed that he and his sister, Madonna, are finally on good terms and are back in contact.
"I sent her an email saying I really like the Girl Gone Wild video and she looked great," Christopher told E! Online. "It is really nice not to have that negativity hanging over our relationship anymore."
Christoper confessed that they exchanged emails last week. "I came across a choreographer I thought might be good for her. She is checking him out."
"We are past the dark days," Christopher added.
Madonna wanted Adele to join her on stage during her Super Bowl performance, she confessed to ITV1's Daybreak and Lorraine, to be aired tomorrow, April 20.
"She's cool," Madonna told ITV1 about Adele. "I wanted her to be in the Super Bowl with me, but I think she was having her throat problem or throat operation or something so..."
When asked if she would like to work with Adele, Madonna replied: ''Yes, I would love to. I would love to meet her, I think she's brilliant, I love her."
Madonna is instead unawared or The One Direction.
Madonna has a second fragrance for men, a companion to Truth or Dare, in the works and it is due out "sometime next year," Madonna revealed to WWD.
"I think it would be good to do a men’s fragrance, as well," said Madonna. "My daughter thinks so. She wants to wear it. She likes to wear men’s cologne — don’t ask me why.”
"I love musk and amber and woody kind of fragrances on men. I love the smell of whiskey — we should make a men’s cologne that smells like whiskey. I can’t drink it, it’s too strong, but it smells amazing — a really good old whiskey."
Long-time Madonna's dancer Sofia Boutella has revealed how working with the Queen of Pop prepared her for StreetDance 2.
Sofia toured with Madonna twice (Confessions Tour, Sticky & Sweet Tour) and most recently performed alongside her at the Super Bowl halftime show.
"It's amazing to work with her. She's a really strong woman and she's really inspiring," Sofia said. "Working with her taught me a lot in terms of discipline and what it takes to accomplish what you want artistically. She's also a great woman and an amazing mother. It has been eight years since I started working with her."
"When you dance with Madonna, you're not only dancing," adds Sofia. "She's also telling stories so you are acting as well. So it felt natural to come into acting."
"My kids are brutally honest when it comes to what they don't like," Madonna told The Sun. "They have no tact whatsoever. They'll just say, 'Mum, get that song off' even when mine. It's hurtful but at least they're honest."
Madonna also talked about how hard she is working for her upcoming 2012 World Tour. "I have to say that in more than 25 years of performing I have never worked so hard or been so scrupulous," confesses Madonna. "Or freaked out more than I have at the minute."
"My whole life has been a combination of hard work and prayer. Preparation is essential but you need as many angels watching over you as possible as well. I'm getting ready for rehearsing my world tour so I have been in training."
"There's been lots of cardio and I'm doing a combination of pilates and dance cardio. And there's been plenty of skipping rope work. The envelope I'm pushing for is as spectacular a show as I can. It should be a feast for the eyes and ears."
In an interview to Yahoo! Voices, Madonna's long-time guitarist Monte Pittman talks about going on tour with Madonna again and how much he loves her MDNA album.
"I'm deeply in love with her new album," says Monte Pittman. "It's one of my favorite things she’s ever done."
"I think these are some of her deepest lyrics I've heard from her," adds Monte. "I'm blown away and can't wait to play some of this stuff live. For me, it kind of sums up everything we all have ever loved about her in one."

On the day two of an exclusive interview to The Sun, Madonna talks about her upcoming 2012 World Tour. "Oh God, I hope somebody is going to give the middle finger at my show. It probably won't be me because I've done it too many times."
"I hope I have some ideas," Madonna adds. "The creative well is dry but I just started rehearsals last week and mostly I have been focusing on music. I do have ideas and I have a lot of work ahead of me. I'm incredibly anxiety-ridden about it."
Then, Madonna has her says about legendary fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld calling Adele "a little too fat". "That's horrible," says Madonna. "That's ridiculous, that's just the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard."
"Adele's a great talent and how much she weighs has nothing to do with it," she adds.
Over the past six months, two of the brightest female stars have passed away in tragic circumstances: last July Amy Winehouse and lat month Whitney Houston. "I, probably like everybody else, was hit by this shocking sense of disbelief – especially with Whitney Houston," Madonna confesses. "It had not been a secret, the struggles Amy had been through — both brilliant, brilliant artists and obviously both huge losses. But when these things happen, I'm always shocked by the first thing you say — 'It's such a loss' — which doesn't quite cover it. Then you reflect and you think, 'How did it happen? How did the people around them allow it to happen?' We've lost so many great artists that way when you think about it. So history just kind of repeats itself over and over. One thing I was struck by with Whitney Houston is I remember she sort of came out as a singer around the same time I did. I remember looking at her singing and hearing people talk about her, and just thinking, 'Oh my God. She's such a beautiful woman and my God, what an incredible voice. I wish I could sing like that.' I just remember being extremely envious of her and also touched by her innocence. I was watching a documentary about Serge Gainsbourg, the French songwriter, and there's a famous talk show he did that happened a while back when Whitney was just starting. It was funny, because I'd just watched it the week before she died, where he was making a kind of play for her on national television and he was basically saying in French that he wanted to 'f' her — and the look of shock on her face... I mean, she was so innocent and so young, and so cute, and really she blushed. And I was thinking, 'We are all innocent at one stage in our life. It's just interesting, the paths our lives take.' I was struck by that — how well she started and where she ended up and the tragedy of it."

MDNA title has led to critics accusing the star of making light of MDMA — the chemical used in the illegal Class A drug Ecstasy. But Madonna quickly brushes off the accusations, insisting: "It's an anagram of my name. I don't really think about controversy — I think about irony."
As you already know, Lourdes has recorded backing vocals on the track Superstar. "Yes, she's my background singer," Madonna told The Sun. "She just came over to the studio that day. Then I said, 'Oh, can you sing this part?' and she agreed to. She has a very good voice. She's quite shy about it and won't admit it. Lots of people are knocking on my door to meet her about everything, movies and what-not. But she's not really interested in any of it. She just wants to go to school. She says to me, 'Mum, I just wantto be a normal kid. I'm not ready for any of that'. I respect that, and if she ever wants to work with me on any level I welcome it."
Discussing song I Don't Give A, Madonna explained: "It's about the life of a single mother. It's a challenge juggling everything — multi-tasking is my middle name. I try to express that."
"Everybody has something to say about the way I live my life," she added. "At the end of the day I'm doing my best. If people don't like it, then that's really their problem."

He announced it yesterday. And tonight as a guest of BBC World Service's The Strand, William Orbit actually share a couple of insights on Madonna's MDNA.
William said that he originally recorded six tracks with Madonna for her MDNA album, but "we keep adding special tracks."
And he revealed that Madonna "has decided to do is extra acoustic versions. There's some pretty hard, rocking tracks. There's a very different variation of styles. Mostly pretty savage, actually."
"The singles that have come out aren't necessarily representative," added Orbit. According to him, Madonna wants to do some sort of more downbeat versions... "kind of the banjo."
William Orbit also said that they "tend to get into the guitar zone now. We get the accoustics out and do it campfire style."
"I'm not a great singer, I sound like a mosquito trapped in a bottle," Orbit added. "She's a fabulous singer, but she's very forgiving. She just wants it to work as a song. That's where we start."
