Madonna has partnered up with Hulu. to show her entire documentary I am Because We Are. This enables us and all of you to embedded the documentary on your own site, just like we have here.
I Am Because We Are is a film about pop star Madonna’s journey, which she embarked on to explore the effects of AIDS in Africa. Along the way, she stops to meet the people affected most, the children. As well as the leaders trying to make a difference in this forgotten part of the world. Some of the people in the film are former President Bill Clinton, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Jeffrey Sachs, and Dr. Paul Farmer.
The funny thing is, when Madonna decided to take on this project, she didn’t have to look too hard (or too far, for that matter) to find the perfect director. She already had one in the family — and no, I don’t mean Guy Ritchie. I am talking about her nanny’s husband, Nathan Rissman.

Stuffing yourself with pies could even qualify one to model for the famous painter himself. Imagine that. I just need to put on 10 more pounds (hopefully around the mid-section), and maybe I’ll be his “Venus at the Mirror”.

As of this writing, Vanity Fair’s Green Issue has yet to hit the newsstands. But seeing as how they’ve handily provided an (aptly eco) online version, here are some early highlights. The video introduction from editor Graydon Carter turns out to be harder to play than it is to justify their “green” cover girl Madonna. After 72 attempts, I finally gathered the wherewithal to seek it out on YouTube Continue Reading / See Additional Photos
Remember Madonna’s striped house in the Hollywood Hills? Back in the mid-‘90s, she owned a spectacular nine-story Spanish castle just below the Hollywood sign. And for whatever reason, she painted red and yellow horizontal stripes on the outside of it. Reportedly, the neighbors were not pleased.
Now she’s gone crazy with the colors again – and this time she’s pissed off more than the neighbors.
For a recent Vogue photo shoot at her Ashcombe Estate in England, the singer had her sheep dyed blue, pink, yellow and green. Not sure what look she was going for there, but the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) responded by labeling it “an irresponsible publicity stunt.”
