France's Le Grand Journal is all love for Madonna as she stops by to support her new album Rebel Heart. Madonna has stepped up her game after her world wide fall at The Brit Awards with a remix performance of the house anthem "Living For Love" flanked by her double asian fetale voguers giving us a taste of the 90's New York underground.
Madonna also performed another Rebel Heart track "Ghosttown" which is rumoured to be the second single and might we add it sounds great live, its a grower.
Talk about a "What?!" moment. Apparently way back in 2006 hit maker Pharrell and Stone Temple Pilots legend Scott Weiland worked on a track together that would become Pharrell's own huge world hit single "Happy."
Scott Weiland and Pharrell Williams’ previously unreleased version of “Happy” has surfaced online nearly a decade after it was originally recorded on the discussion section of Weiland’s PledgeMusic site, where a streaming link was shared. Weiland and Williams recorded the song in 2006, but Williams decided to keep the song for himself, so Weiland could not release the song. The copy is from a very limited edition Happy in Galoshes promo CD sent out in 2008. Via alternativenation.net

The Wall Street Journal visits with Melissa Rivers at her late mother Joan Rivers New York Estate where she explains some of the comedians favorite decorative pieces inside the 11 room penthouse.

Jokes paid the rent. For 25 years, Joan Rivers lived in an 11-room triplex penthouse at 1 East 62nd St., just off Fifth Ave. Now, the late comedian’s gilded condo atop a seven-story limestone mansion built in 1903 is on the market for $28 million.
Rivers, who died in September, bought the triplex in February 1988 for $3.2 million, and kept an office and vast card catalog of one-liners there. The comedian, who was president of the building’s condo board, occupied the sixth and seventh floors, while her daughter, Melissa, used the fifth-floor space when visiting.
The 5,100-square-foot home occupies the building’s three-story, 1930s addition. It features four bedrooms, 4.5 baths, five fireplaces, a gymnasium-size ballroom and music room with 23-foot ceilings, a library, and two terraces.
“I live in Los Angeles—what would I do with my mother’s huge apartment?” said Ms. Rivers, 47, author of “The Book of Joan,” recollections about her mother due in May. “Even if I kept my fifth-floor apartment, the stairs to mom’s floors would be sealed off by new owners. It’s too painful.”
The triplex has been on and off the market since 2009. “In recent years, mom came out to L.A. weekly to stay with me and my son, Cooper, while we worked on our TV projects,” said Ms. Rivers. “It was her childhood fantasy to live in New York. She was never going to leave.”
Personal effects and furnishings aren’t part of the listing price. “I’m keeping the more sentimental items,” said Ms. Rivers. She talked about five pieces her mother loved best:
“The wrought-iron cradle planter was originally a sand ashtray that the Plaza Hotel planned to toss out during a renovation in the ‘70s. My parents’ pleas to buy it were rejected, so they sneaked one into their hotel room, emptied the sand in the tub, ran the water and took it apart to carry out. When the tub’s drainage backed up, the plumber arrived and asked about all the sand. My mother looked the guy in the eye and said, ‘My kid just came back from the beach.’ It was mid-December.”
“In the 1990s, my mother and I bought two glass chandeliers in West Hollywood—one for my fifth-floor guest apartment and the other for my L.A. house. They were limited-edition models of Columbus’s three ships. We always hoped we’d find the third. Mom said, ‘Don’t worry, it will turn up suddenly, like Jimmy Hoffa.’ ”
“ ‘Mille Baisers,’ by Kees Van Dongen (1916), was the last piece my mom and dad bought together before my father, Edgar, died in 1987. Mom loved the colors and the fact that the woman bending over the table was the artist’s daughter completing a drawing by adding the words ‘Mille Baisers’ [‘A Thousand Kisses’].”
“My parents started acquiring Fabergé animals, frames and boxes in the 1980s. I think there was a kinship between the craftsmanship and how mom labored over her work for her appearances. She’d say, ‘Look how amazing. Art is in the details.’ ”
“Mom always sat on this baroque-style foot stool in the library when she was on the phone or in meetings. Sitting on the stool was her way of strengthening her posture, which was extremely important to her. Half my life I was told not to slouch. Mom, on the other hand, could fall asleep sitting up straight.”
Hot off the heels of their live duet performance on The Tonight Show, Iggy continues to build her army of Jennifer's (including Jennifer Hudson, Jennifer Lopez, Jennifer Love-Hewitt...I mean, come on, I can totally see Iggy playing the daughter role in a 2001 "Heartbreakers" re-make complete with Love transitiong into the appropriate role as the con artist mom and OG bad bitch mother-now-turned grandma Sigourney Weave...i'm just sayin'.)
The I-G-G-Y looks stunning as a 1970's vintage glam blonde bombshell! Messy money business was thee main conceptual theme of the video. Iggy finds herself accomplicing a prison break for her BF but than gets cockblocked by none other than Officer Hudson in a full on Chips meets Cops TV Show uniform ensemble.
In a tastefully done manner, enjoy the eye-candy retro hugged music video for the new single "Trouble," produced by Invisible Men and Salt Wives!
