    Madonna Confirms Grammys Performance

    Madonna will perform at the Grammy Awards.

    A Friday news release from The Recording Academy had no other details about the seven-time Grammy winner's appearance, however, which has been a rumor for some time.

    Also added to the performance lineup are nominees Miranda Lambert and Billie Joe Armstrong. They will sing a tribute to the late Phil Everly of The Everly Brothers. Juicy J and Trombone Shorty have also been added to the roster.

    They'll join a star-studded lineup that includes most of today's top pop stars and leading nominees Jay Z, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Pharrell Williams and Kendrick Lamar.

    The 56th annual Grammy Awards hosted by LL Cool J will air live Sunday night from the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

    Madonna Tops Forbes' World's Highest Paid Musicians 2013 List

    Don't be. According to Forbes' latest roundup, Madonna made a whopping $125 million in 2013.

    "The bulk of Madge’s millions this year come from the tail end of her MDNA Tour, which grossed $305 million," explains Forbes. Add to that heavy "merchandise sales at concerts as well as her Material Girl clothing line and Truth or Dare fragrance," and you've got a clear winner.

    Her runner-up, Lady Gaga, trails behind with a "mere" $80 million. The tour she cut short due to her injury, explains Forbes, still grossed $168 million.

    Bon Jovi lands in third place with a close $79 million. "All in all, the group earned more than Kanye West, Skrillex and Carrie Underwood," Forbes noted, in what might make little sense to anyone born after 1990.

    Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, Elton John, Beyonce and more make respectable cameos on Forbes' Highest Paid Musicians 2013 list. To find out exactly how much each songbird raked, head over to Forbes.com.

    Madonna, 53, is an (old) Girl Gone Wild as she strips to her bra on cover of new single

    The black, triangle-shaped lace bra doesn't hide much, and very nearly leaves the superstar exposed.

    She doesn't cover up in other articles of clothing, either, flaunting most of trim and toned stomach.

    Her mouth is open in a suggestive pose, and her blonde locks are artfully tousled.

    Everything about the cover is suggestive, including the title.

    Girls Gone Wild is, quite famously, a video series created by Joe Francis where college-age girls perform various sexual acts on camera.

    Madonna's new electro pop single even seems to be channelling the films with her lyrics.

    She sings that 'girls just want to have fun' and 'get fired up like a smoking gun' and though she realises that she 'shouldn't act this way' because 'good girls don't misbehave', she's a 'bad girl anyway.'

    Francis, too, thought that Madonna's song was much too similar to his famous brand, and demanded that she change the title of the track -- which originally had the same name as his company.

    He also sent her a cease and desist letter to prevent her from singing the song at the Super Bowl.

    The 38-year-old entrepreneur told TMZ: 'Clearly her label was trying to avoid legal action surrounding the song...BUT [the new title] is still infringement as far as the law is concerned, and we have been in touch with Madonna's people in an effort to resolve the issue.'

    The track, which was recorded in London, was produced by electronic star Benny Benassi and written by Jenson Vaughan.

    This sexual single rides hard and fast on the heels of Give Me All Your Luvin', her first single off of her twelfth studio album.

    She debuted the song, which features cameos by Nicki Minaj and M.I.A.during the Super Bowl halftime show earlier this month.

    Another day, another stunning bikini for Victoria's Secret model Karolina Kurková as she enjoys a family holiday in Italy

    She wowed onlookers yesterday by showing off her enviable figure in a stunning Missoni bikini, while enjoying a family holiday.
    And today, Victoria's Secret model Karolina Kurkova was sporting yet another glamorous two-piece as she relaxed on the island of Ischia, off the coast of southern Italy.
    With her blonde hair up in a loose ponytail, the 27-year-old carried her 21-month-old son Tobin Jack down the hotel steps to lounge by the pool.

    She joined her film producer husband Archie Drury on the sun lounger, before taking little Tobin for a swim in the childrens' pool.
    There was no mistaking her model figure in the bikini, although she seemed to have developed a few tan lines from her previous day's sunbathing.
    The star has previously revealed that she didn't have too many problems regaining her stunning figure after giving birth last October.
    'I didn't gain much weight, and I think the secret was really staying active throughout my pregnancy,' she told W magazine in May.
    'I did Pilates, a lot of weight training, I walked a lot and I travelled. And I was eating really healthy, taking good supplements and vitamins, drinking green juices and just making sure I was putting the best stuff in my body.'

    Madonna’s Life to be Documented in Comic Book

    The highs and lows of the 52-year-old singer’s phenomenal career — which has spanned almost 30 years — will be encapsulated in a 32-page graphic novel produced by publishers Bluewater Productions Inc. as part of their Female Force series, which has previously featured the likes of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, Sarah Palin and Barbara Walters.

    “Our goal is to show the little-known events and influences that resulted in Madonna becoming the phenomenon she remains to this day, more than a quarter-century after she burst upon the scene,” said Jason Schultz, executive vice president of Bluewater.

    “A visual medium provides perspective that is not only accessible but more relatable to the average person without losing any of the information involved.”

    Penned by C.W. Cooke and drawn by Michael Johnson, the comic book is due for release in August.
