Madonna had by far the highest-earning concert tour in 2012, raking in more than $228 million from 72 live concerts, according to figures reported by Billboard. The Material Girl's earnings were far ahead of second-place finisher Bruce Springsteen, while Coldplay, Lady Gaga, and the Jay-Z-Kanye West joint tour all placed in the Top 10.
Madonna, that lightning rod for drama and controversy, dodged another legal bullet. The Russian lawsuits that were lodged against the Material Girl after she expressed support for St. Petersburg's gay community by waving LGBT flags on stage, have been tossed out of court. The plaintiffs had been seeking a whopping $10.7 million in damages from Madge.
Celebrities have come to the rescue of those affected by Hurricane Sandy by donating their time and money, and purchasing belongings to donate to various relief centers.
Brazilian little monsters may have edged out the "competition" when it comes to which geographical location is teeming with the most dedicated Lady Gaga fans in existence.
They didn't burn an effigy of Lady Gaga's nemesis Madonna, but they came pretty darn close. Instead, they burned a t-shirt with Madge's face depicted on it. That's some serious love and dedication right there.
Someone won't just let it go. Madonna is milking the Lady Gaga diss train for all it's worth. Madge brought up the Mother Monster -- again! -- at her MDNA tour stop on Nov. 4 in St. Paul, Minn. But rather than referring to Gaga as "reductive" or an imitator, Madge joked that the singer "rejected" her offer to share the stage. Boo hoo. Madge is all butt hurt about being told no.
