The Lady in Cannes

Madonna's been making the rounds in Cannes this week for her documentary I Am Because We Are. She did an interview with Cynthia McFadden last night on Nightline. On the ABC blog Cynthia reveals tbat she tunred down Liz Rosenberg and Madonna's request for the interview (due to other committments) and Madonna accomodated her schedule.

The interview itself was very good. Madonna clearly felt comfortable with McFadden, because she joked a lot and seemed more at ease than usual. That's her big problem - she may actually be very likeable/nice, but she rarely lets down her guard to reveal that side of herself.

In the interview Madonna revealed that Pharrell Williams made her cry when she was recording vocals for the new album. He said something that upset her and she took him out of the room to talk to him - can you imagine? Yikes! When she started to cry, he said "Madonna has a heart!" and that made her cry more! Looking back, she said it was just part of the process of making music and that she gets along really well with him. He produced her next single, Give It To Me, which is one of just a few killer tracks on Hard Candy.

You can watch a teaser for the interview below, where Madonna, looking younger than she has in years, talks about her "big Italian thighs." Right! And check out her Hard necklace...

M with her frequent matron / serious artist look, but hotter, in Cannes. The Lady likes a good shoe.

If you live in North America, you can spy on Madonna going to a yacht party in Cannes. Stars, they're just like us. I was on a yacht last night too. Maybe.

Aww, we have dueling Madonna posts today. Except mine has her original face, from a low point for her which she's probably likely forget.

Interesting about the Pharrell bit. Will have to go watch!

Hmmm .. promotion for the new album has been suspiciously modest.

Not a fan of the Olsen twins mid hair parting.. but overall she does look amazing.
