The singer had invited 17 year old fan Josephine Georgiou on stage.
With her Rebel Heart World Tour generating increasing amounts of undesirable headlines, Madonna might face the theoretical possibility of a sexual assault charge after pulling down the top of a teenage fan she had invited on stage, briefly exposing her breast.
In the incident at Brisbane Entertainment Center on Thursday evening (March 17th), captured in a fan video which has since gone viral, the 57 year old singer yanked down 17 year old Josephine Georgiou’s shirt, revealing one of her breasts.
“She’s the kind of girl you just want to slap on the ass,” the singer said admiringly of the barista and would-be model standing next to her, but nobody in the crowd could have been prepared for what then happened.

Madonna and Guy Ritchie's new wife Jacqui seem to have become embroiled in a 'who had the best Christmas' competition on Instagram.
Madonna’s custody battle with her ex-husband Guy Ritchie has escalated from the court room to social media, as the former couple traded pictures via Instagram to prove who had the better Christmas holidays.
Over the festive period which she spent with three of her kids, the 57 year old pop legend posted a number of throwback pictures of her brood, including Rocco who was spending Christmas on the other side of the Atlantic with Ritchie and his new wife.
Putting up a clip of her and her eldest son laughing together, Madge wrote “Merry X-mas to the Sun-shine of my Life!” Meanwhile, Ritchie’s new wife Jacqui posted a picture of their wedding day back in July, in which Rocco is standing next to them, writing “Happy Holidays with love from the Ritchies”.

Sandra Bullock welcomes a new addition to her family in the form of her 3-year-old adopted daughter Laila; a little girl from Louisiana who was previously living in foster care. And it seems she has fit in with Bullock and her new brother Louis just fine.
Sandra Bullock has adopted her second child
Bullock, who has no biological children, embarked on her first adoption venture in New Orleans with baby Louis who is now 5. And it seems that she can't get enough of life as a single parent because now she's added a little girl to her brood.

Perry joined Madonna onstage in Los Angeles on Tuesday night, and brought her ultimate fan-girl with her.
Sparks flew when Katy Perry joined Madonna onstage on the latest stop on her Rebel Heart tour in Los Angeles this week, as the two pop titans performed together and got rather close with a few raunchy dance moves.
It’s fair to say that 31 year old Perry brought out her inner fan-girl as Madonna invited her to the stage at The Forum in Inglewood, L.A. on Tuesday evening (October 27th). They joined forces for a rendition of Madge’s ‘Unapologetic B****’, and got rather intimate with their twerking, dipping their butts low and grinding at one point.

After 63 years, Playboy will end its practice of featuring explicit nude photographs in 2016.
Playboy will no longer be publishing nude photos of women. As of next year, as part of the magazine’s redesign, no explicit nude photographs will appear within its pages. Feminists across the World may be celebrating the shift away from such images – the battle still wages with The Sun over its Page Three – but Playboy’s decision does not appear to have been made with quashing sexism in mind.

The singer believes that being able to change his parents' lives makes it all worth it.
He may be one of the biggest pop stars of the moment, but it's not the money, or the awards, or even the screaming fans that make the climb to the top worth all the hard work. Rather, Ed Sheeran says the biggest reward of fame is his ability to change his parents' lives for the better.

Always one to give great copy, the legendary former Smiths frontman attacked the current trend among indie artists for crowdsourced music.
Legendary indie music icon Morrissey has spoken out against crowdsourcing in pop. Currently without a record deal and having a reputation for falling out with record label bosses over the years, the star has vowed never to resort to raising money online as a means of making new music.
In an interview with Spanish newspaper El Pais, the Mozfather took aim at artists who use the internet to source the money for album projects. “It is a desperate measure, and insulting to your audience,” he railed. “We have already provided sufficient amounts of money. What is the next thing you're going to ask?”

Madonna's rep denies that she spent her time at the theatre on her phone, and that Miranda actually did invite her backstage.
In what’s been a pretty appalling week of negative PR for Madonna, there appears to be some good news at last, as the ‘theatre texting’ incident appears to be blowing over.
The New York Daily News reported at the weekend that the singer had started texting during an intimate off-Broadway theatre performance of ‘Hamilton’, a hip-hop musical directed by and starring Lin-Manuel Miranda. Taking the stage to appeal for charitable donations to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, Miranda was reported to have made a barbed reference to someone in the audience who had been practicing poor etiquette.
After the performance, Miranda was reported by Playbill.com to have tweeted “Tonight was the first time I asked stage management NOT to allow a celebrity (who was texting all through Act 2) backstage. #noselfieforyou”. Taking these two statements together, many have assumed that person to be Madonna.

For some reason Drake didn't seem too happy after receiving the smooch from the Queen of Pop and was seen furiously wiping his mouth afterwards. The image of Drake's grossed out looking face and frantic mouth wiping has unsurprisingly led to a slew of internet memes, with Madonna being compared to everything from a Dementor to Dracula.
And the rapper's reaction does not say good things about her kissing technique
When Madonna tells you to do something or even when she just makes you do it, you don’t say no to the Queen of Pop.

And, while rapper Drake did not stop the kiss that the Like A Virgin songstress planted on him at Coachella Festival, it certainly looked like something he was not entirely happy with after it had happened.

Madonna performs 'Holiday' with Jimmy Fallon and The Roots
You never see real musicians using the likes of maracas, cowbells, glockenspiels or tambourines in their compositions (not often, anyway) so why do teachers expect children to learn the art of music making this way? Well, legendary neo-soul collective The Roots and Queen of Pop Madonna have proved on 'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon' that with proper execution these instruments aren't so lame after all.

Madonna is not banned from Radio 1 and just needs to get back to releasing decent songs, according to the station's controller Ben Cooper.

Madonna is not banned from Radio 1, but it appears she has little chance of appearing on the station.
Still, Cooper responded saying that the song wasn't played because it wasn't very good.
