Madonna talks Super Bowl nerves

The countdown to Madonna's hyped Super Bowl performance is on, and the singer admits that she's feeling some nerves.

"It's the most nerve-wracking thing I've ever done," Madge told Jay Leno on "The Tonight Show" Monday. "The Super Bowl is the holy of holies. It's like the sacred show of America. And I have to go on in the middle of that holy of holies and put on the greatest show that was ever put on before. That's no pressure."

On top of not really getting a lot of rehearsal time - "they're playing football all day so I don't really have time to do a sound check. It's a little bit like a circus act: Get in there, roll out my carpet, put on my show and get the eff off," she joked - there's also the fact that the Super Bowl halftime isn't the place to exercise a lot of artistic license.

Oscar-qualifying songs include Muppets, leave out Madonna

The Academy has released a short list of film songs that are in contention for Oscar nomination consideration, New York Magazine’s Vulture reports.

Notably absent from the list is Madonna’s “Masterpiece,” from her film “W.E.”

Turns out Madge’s song sounds too far into the movie’s closing credits to qualify for a nomination in the category.

Guy Ritchie: I don't regret marriage to Madonna

Guy Ritchie and Madonna ended their eight-year marriage in 2008 – and the former Mr. Madge is finally speaking out, spilling about the union to Details.

"I enjoyed my first marriage. It's definitely not something I regret," Ritchie, 43, tells the December/January issue of Details. "The experience was ultimately very positive. I love the kids that came out of it, and I could see no other route to take."

Ritchie has a biological child with Madonna, son Rocco, 11, and an adopted son, David Banda, 6. (Madonna also has daughter Lourdes, 14, from a previous relationship, and adopted daughter Mercy James, also 6, from after her split with Guy.)

Madonna: I was a hairy high school outcast

Like many celebs, Madonna says she didn’t fit in as a teenager. The 53-year-old pop icon tells Harper’s Bazaar that her refusal to conform didn't go over well with her peers.

"I saw how popular girls had to behave to get the boys," she recalls in the magazine’s December issue. "I knew I couldn't fit into that. So I decided to do the opposite. I refused to wear makeup, to have a hairstyle. I refused to shave. I had hairy armpits."

As a result, young Madge’s hirsute state drew insults like “hairy monster” from students at her Midwest high school, where she says she was “tortured.” “The boys in my school would make fun of me,” she says.

Judge: Madonna doesn't own 'Material Girl' name

She may have sung the 1985 song, and she may have launched the Macy’s clothing line, but Madonna does NOT own the trademark to “Material Girl,” according to Billboard.

Last year, Madge teamed up with Macy’s to create a teen apparel line (with daughter Lourdes Leon) called Material Girl. But a clothing company who trademarked the name in 1997 had to come along and cramp Madonna’s style – they sued the pop star for infringement.

Madonna and her company, Material Girl Brand, have been fighting the lawsuit, claiming the entertainer is the Material Girl.

Don't buy Madonna hydrangeas

We can learn a valuable lesson from last week’s Venice Film Festival: Madonna really, really does not like hydrangeas. It'd probably be wise not to buy her any.

And thanks to a fan’s YouTube upload, we never have to make that mistake.

During a press conference for her upcoming movie “W.E.,” Madge was handed a hydrangea bouquet. It went downhill from there.
