OK OK. We swear that LeFag is not going to be giving exhaustive coverage to old Madge's new album as it trickles its way into existence. We shared this last week because Sean O'Pry was in it, and now we bring you the latest preview track that dropped today, which is a full track called 'I Fucked Up.' Now, it ain't the most amazing song (and we don't know why she has to translate "I'm sorry" at one point into French, "Je suis desolee"...), but in addition to the track titled 'I Don't Give A,' we're getting the idea that Madonna is just apologizing to the world for Guy Ritchie and apologizing to Guy Ritchie for even trying to make that work. But whatever. It turns dancey around the 2:00 mark, giving you an idea of what the 900 dance remixes will sound like. The White Party's coming up. They will play it there, we're sure. The end.

Swear to God, the only reason we're posting this is because the new video from Madonna features former Le Fag pretty, pretty boy Sean O'Pry. And the fact that other male models such as Simon Nessman, Jon Kortajarena, and Rob Evans are also in it and we get some model-on-model lip sucking has nothing to do with it. Honest.
So Madonna directed this movie, everyone. She has officially taken her passion for England to a new level, from fake British accent to actual British history flick, telling the story of Wallis Simpson, the divorced American woman who stole the heart of King Edward VIII and caused him to abdicate the throne for love -- a story that gets partially told in The King's Speech. It's called W.E., which stands for Wallis and Edward, and this was apparently how they signed letters after they were married. And because Madge probably thinks it's Academy Award-worthy, she's waited until year's end to release the thing. Anyway, the costumes look nice.
"Maybe next season, we should sing a song." — Friend of Madonna Stefano Gabbana regarding the aging material girl's new "lifestyle brand" clothing line, Truth or Dare, which will include shoes, handbags, and accessories. [Grazia, Earlier]
Amy Winehouse is dead. Lady Gaga is collaborating with Britney Spears. Justin Bieber exists. Clearly we live in the age of a musical apocalypse. Just for a moment, let's pretend it's 1990 and we're back at Madonna's Blonde Ambition Tour - the "Greatest Concert of the 1990s" (Rolling Stone), which gave us not only Truth or Dare, (with wet-dream dancer Slam) but also introduced cone bras to millions of tranny imitators. Happy birthday, bitch.
How can you not love Beth Ditto of Gossip? Here she is in Moscow, wearing nothing but a bra and panties, performing Madonna's Vogue. Beauty's where you find it!
Sort of. Out magazine has posted a number of covers that they, in hindsight, regret publishing, including the shiteous alien Madonna, forcing Jake Shears to wear sheers, and declaring Paris Hilton a gay icon. See all 12 embarassing regrettables after the jump.
Please give a round of applause for Robert Jeffrey, a 29-year-old screenwriter living in Boston who found, digitized, and uploaded this incredible video of himself, shot in one of those make-your-own-music-video booths at the Hampton Beach Casino in Hampton Beach, New Hampshire, in the summer of 1991. We remember that summer well. We were a couple of years older than Robert, too self-conscious and semi-closeted by that point to be fagging out quite so freely. But goddamn. Werk, girl. [via SFist]

We're sure Jeffery and Patrick were among the gays and ladies losing their ever-effing minds yesterday when Madge walked out on stage at one of Oprah's final shows, being shot at the United Center in Chicago, which is filled with thousands of O's "most loyal fans." Even Oprah herself looks surprised, but she should know by now that even if Lady Diana rises from the grave and walks out on stage in vintage Vivienne Westwood she shouldn't be shocked, because she's fucking Oprah. Madonna says Oprah's the only living, self-made woman who she looks up to. Also, she says Oprah has balls. She sounds like she means actual balls. [Boy Culture]
So, it seems that the boyfriend of Madonna's former trainer might not have been the best choice to head the Board of Directors of the foundation she started to raise funds for a $15 million school for girls in Malawi, called Raising Malawi. He's been ousted and the entire board fired, with a caretaker board put in its place including Madge herself. The reason? Outlandish expenditures on cars, golf, housing, etc. that was eating up the foundation's monies that was supposed to go to build the school in the impoverished African nation. According to the NYT, "Madonna has lent her name, reputation and $11 million of her money to the organization that she founded with Mr. [Michael] Berg [co-director of the L.A. Kabbalah Center]." Philippe van den Bossche, the aforementioned trainer's boyfriend who has worked for Madonna since 2004, is faulted in a report by a global philanthropy watchdog group for misappropriating funds, and for not breaking ground on the school despite having spent $3.8 million on the project already, including designs and cars for two employees who hadn't even been hired yet. Madonna pledges to continue to work to improve education in Malawi via the foundation. [NYT]
Photographer Richard Corman shot a bunch of photos of an unknown Madonna a year before her first album dropped, while she was playing her little gigs at Danceteria and generally bopping around NYC wearing a lot of bracelets, knowing deep down she would one day be a huge a pop star, then an even huger pop star, then an aging pop star with a yoga body, and then a chupacabra. Known Madonna enthusiast Matt Rettenmund at Boy Culture came out with a few preview photos earlier today, antipating this OUT Mag photo spread, admitting that he owned a number of them until Corman bought them back from him in a deal we imagine was struck over Cosmos at the Monster. Anyway, here's the cover, and there a few more below. She looks a lot like Lourdes, right!? Given the pace of culture these days, the Gaga can probably only hope to have a career one fourth the length of old Madge's... but who kows. Tenacity pays. So does a well-placed birthmark.
We just can't get enough of that Damiana Garcia (Michael Lucid), and here she is interviewing faux Madonna (the spot-on Nadya Ginsburg) about her Valentine's Day plans (which include a 16-mile run and some quinoa toast), and helps her put together an OK Cupid profile, because, you know, she's still a single gal on the make. ("The first thing people usually notice about you: 'My vascularity.'")
Sex in Drag, shot entirely on Fire Island, is clearly the must-have coffee table item this Christmas for all of the gayest gays. It's a send-up of seminal 90s tome Sex, featuring Madge herself, and in the role of Madonna we have gender illusionist Greg Scarnici, with a pair of latex titties. Also featured in the book are Chris “Go Go” Harder, Dallas Dubois and Logan Hardcore.
See the NSFW wonder, below.
Matt Siegel, our fag-brother-in-arms over at The Unabashed Queer, has noticed a disturbingly (and amusingly) large number of YouTube videos in which troubled gays sing the obscure Madonna ballad "Oh Father" in some *deeply gay* attempt at working through their daddy issues. Here, Matt takes us through the wondrous examples of this phenomenon, and we have to say that Paulywood GaGa has to be our favorite -- he reminds us a little of porn world hanger-on Angel Benton, no?
