It looks like the rain isn’t going anywhere this weekend so we’ll be staying indoors instead of enjoying barbecues and trips to the beach.

Luckily, you will be pleasantly entertained with dozens of shows and movies airing on the TV across the weekend.

As usual, we will be tuning into The Graham Norton Show which never fails to brighten our Friday nights. The chat show is bound to cheer us up on this dreary Friday with another stellar line-up.

The Corkman will be joined by pop royalty this week as Madonna will join Graham to discuss her new album, her controversial Eurovision performance and her iconic career.

Also joining Graham is legendary actor Ian McKellan, who is always a joy on the show.

Stars of Yesterday Lily James and Himesh Patel will join the movie’s director Danny Boyle to chat about their new flick.

There will also be music from Sheryl Crow who will perform her new single Still the Good Old Days.

The Graham Norton Show airs at 10.35 pm on BBC One.


Latch on to your Manolo Blahnik's, it looks like Carrie Bradshaw is set for a mysterious, and no doubt glamorous, return to our lives.

Sarah Jessica Parker uploaded a video to her Instagram account in Full Carrie Character over the weekend, strutting down New York City's streets like she owns the place.

The brief clip was set to the music of Sex and the City, and featured SJP in a vintage-Madonna-esque outfit; gloves, a mermaid-like tulle skirt, a purple beaded clutch and a pair of white lace heels.

SJP confirmed in the video's caption that her beloved character is back in our lives for a vital reason;

"My old friend. She is making a brief reappearance. Partnering with a great brand and supporting a cause we all care about. More to come. X, SJ," Parker wrote.

Sadly, this isn't a promotional video for a third Sex and the City flick; it's been confirmed multiple times that the movie isn't going ahead.

Rumours of a three-quel were being whispered about for years, but those hopes have been dashed,

We're going to assume it's just an upcoming brand partnership with a social responsibility/activism angle, which will feature SJP in Carrie character.

At this stage, we'll take what we can get after the feud between Kim Cattrall and her three co-stars…

A documentary focusing on sexual abuse allegations made by two men against the late King of Pop Michael Jackson will be aired this spring.

Leaving Neverland features stories told by two men who claim to have been abused by Jackson when they were kids.

Channel 4 commissioned the documentary and say it will be shown on TV in two-parts, to be premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in late January.

A portion of the Sundance website reads;

"At the height of his stardom Michael Jackson began long-running relationships with two boys, aged 7 and 10, and their families. Now in their 30s, they tell the story of how they were sexually abused by Jackson, and how they came to terms with it years later."

Michael Jackson's estate sent a statement to Variety saying;  “This is yet another lurid production in an outrageous and pathetic attempt to exploit and cash in on Michael Jackson.”

In 2005, the former child star was acquitted of child molestation charges. Close personal friend and actor Macaulay Culkin was among those who stood on the stand to defend him.

Amos Pictures are creating the film and Dan Reed is heading the production. Reed created the BAFTA award-winning documentary The Paedophile Hunter as well as From Russia with Cash.

The documentary will air on HBO in America in the same week that it airs on Channel 4 in the UK, but no date has been set as of yet.


Twitter is freaking out over Madonna’s recent tribute to the late Aretha Franklin, calling her speech ‘a very moving tribute to herself’.

And it seems most people are in agreement with that perspective.

At MTV’s Video Music Awards on Monday, Madonna entered the stage dressed in a floor-length, black dress, appropriate for her mourning of the legendary ‘Queen of Soul’.

“Aretha Louise Franklin changed the course of my life.” The pop singer began her speech to honour Aretha.

Madonna told her story of how singing Aretha’s "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman" at an audition changed her life, causing her discovery, and setting her on a course to fame.

The Pop Queen continued her rags to riches tale, saying that “none of this would have happened, could have happened without our lady of soul”.

She led me to where I am today and I know she influenced so many people in this room tonight,” she said. “I want to thank you Aretha for empowering all of us.”

However, contrary to her intended effect, the American singer’s anecdote immediately encountered opposition online from viewers everywhere.

Comedian Roy Wood Jr joked on Twitter: “'If it wasn't for Aretha, we wouldn't have Madonna'- Madonna.”

Author Michael Arceneaux tweeted: “‘You’re probably all wondering why I am telling this story.’ Yes, Madonna”.

The singer also came under attack for her outfit choice: chunky, silver jewellery with pops of red, and a matching headband adorned with spikes.

Commenters said that her ‘African jewellery’ was an attempt to claim black culture.

One user ranted that “this was not an #Aretha tribute but a monologue on how another iconic Black woman is being reduced to how she helped a white woman.”

Others  have come to Madonna’s defence, calling her speech ‘moving’ and on point by  ‘thanking [Aretha] for empowering all female artists.’

While Madonna has yet to respond to her recent tribute haters, we expect she will feel forced to clarify her intentions soon.

Meanwhile, other influencers have spoken out in tribute to the legendary soul singer, including Adele, Ariana Grande, and Paul McCartney.

Former American president, Barack Obama said that ‘Aretha helped define the American experience. In her voice, we could feel our history, all of it and in every shade—our power and our pain, our darkness and our light, our quest for redemption and our hard-won respect.”

It is clear that Aretha has made an impact on musical history, not just in the genre of soul but for women everywhere, demonstrating how a legendary voice and raw, feminine power can change the world.


Well, it was certainly a birthday party to remember.

The infamous Noel Gallagher celebrated his 50th birthday last weekend, and it couldn't have been more star-studded.

The guitarist had a Narcos-themed bash (standard) and among the guests were Bono, Michael Fassbender, Alicia Vikander, Madonna, Stella McCarthey, David Walliams, and many, many more.

The music, the drinks, and the social media snaps were flowing all night long and it certainly seemed like everyone had a great time:



Pepsi have pulled their controversial ad featuring Kendall Jenner, and now celebs are weighing in on the issue.

The commercial, which was protest-themed, received a lot of online backlash, and last night, the brand apologised to consumers, saying they "clearly missed that mark."

Now, pop icon Madonna has weighed in on the drama.

Taking to Instagram, Madge posted a clip of the commercial. 

"When you wake up and realise that s**t just really doesn't make sense!" said the singer, captioning the post.

"Side note: my Pepsi commercial was pulled 30 years ago because I was kissing a black saint. #Ironic"

She then threw further shade by posting a throwback picture of herself carrying a can of Coke, the main rival of Pepsi. 

Madonna's sentiments are reflected in the public outcry that followed the advert, as some social media users felt that Pepsi was attempting to capitalise on activism. 


From Michelle Obama to the Red Hot Chili Peppers, most stars fall all over themselves to take part in The Late Late Show's Carpool Karaoke segment.

And it looks like Madonna is no exception.

And while thousands of her Instagram followers are pumped at the idea of seeing the Queen of Pop duet with James Corden, not everyone is that impressed by the announcement.

Sharing a snap of herself with James on Instagram last night, Madonna wrote: "Riding around Manhattan with the Hunk of Burning Love" in a move which sent social media into a tailspin.

"Awesome! It's about time," gushed one of her followers, but not everyone is on the same page.

"This b*tch needs to retire" wrote one Instagram user while another added: "The most overrated popstar of all the time"

While the upload itself racked up 113,000 likes, many of The Late Late Show's followers wasted no time sharing their thoughts on Madge's imminent appearance, with another writing: "Terrible choice."

"Why she decided to do this right after Gaga? Isn't she jealous of Gaga? smh," added someone else on Twitter when the news broke.

Well, let's just see how it goes, shall we?



Madonna is no stranger to controversy and after more than thirty years in the spotlight, there's no doubt the music icon can take pretty much ANYTHING that's thrown at her.

Having been slammed for her choice of ensemble at last night's Met Gala, Madge took to Twitter and Instagram, and proved she couldn't care less what people had to say about her Edward Scissorhands-inspired look.

Sharing an image of herself with the caption 'No F*cks To Give', the 57-year-old performer reminded everyone that she'll do, say and wear whatever she wants for as long as she wants.(And the rest of us will just have to DEAL.)

The mum-of-four shared a number of snaps from one of the biggest celeb events of the year, and made sure to grab a photo with fellow stars who also chose to rock the goth look for the NYC bash.

Cosying up to Nicki Minaj in a photo which has been liked almost 60,000 times on Instagram since its upload today, Madonna looked pretty amazing for a woman approaching her sixtieth birthday.

We're with you on this one, Madge.





For the past four months, Madonna and Guy Ritchie have fought over the custody of their son Rocco, who is refusing to live in New York with his mother.

And Madonna has apparently been left devastated after a social media account set up by her son has branded her a "bitch."

The Instagram account in the name of Rocco Ritchie, puts the description as a "son of a bitch" in the bio.

Although the IG’s name, image and biography are public, all of the uploaded pictures shared are private, prompting speculation that it is not a fake account and it does belong to Rocco.

The profile pic on the page changed three times last week, and all appeared to be selfie-style close-ups of the 15-year-old's face.



Madonna has grabbed headlines once again today as it was revealed that she exposed the boob of an underage fan during her live gig this week. 

At a packed house in Brisbane, Josephine Georgiou, a 17-year-old aspiring model, was invited up onstage to perform with the iconic singer where Madge proceeded to pull down her top. 

"She's the kind of girl you just want to slap… on the ass… and pull," said the 57-year-old to the crowd. 

She then proceeded to tug at the top, exposing a breast before adding: "Oh sh*t, oh sorry, sexual harassment. You can do the same to me." 

The incident has caused criticism across social media this week but Josephine has come out to say that she is okay with the whole thing. 

"Only I get to decide if I'm humiliated or not – why would people assume I am humiliated by my own breast, nipple or body?" Georgiou reportedly said to the Courier-Mail in Australia. 

"I didn't realise my boob was such a big deal, it was nothing to me." 

The incident comes less than a week after Madonna missed a court hearing for her custody battle over son Rocco and having several meltdowns onstage. 

Watch a clip of the incident below:




Ah, Madge. You're not in the best of places at the moment, huh?

Madonna is after having her second on-stage meltdown this week as she took to a Melbourne arena in Austrailia.

While in the middle of her concert she decided it would be a good time to tell her fans that Guy Ritchie is a "son of a b***h," as well as asking "someone please f**k me."

She also appeared to take a few swigs out of a fan's hip flash while on stage and fell off a tricycle, the Daily Mail reports.

Her son has decided to live with his father in London rather than choosing to stay with Madge in America.

The custody battle with Guy Ritchie has clearly taken a toll on her and we hope she bounces back to herself in no time.



Pop royalty Madonna is super proud of her daughter right now and not without good reason. 

Lourdes Leon has just nailed her first ever modelling campaign with top designer Stella McCarthy. 

The 19-year-old looks divine as she poses in the first official pics from the line with her faded, purple hair pulled back into french plaits. 

Madonna's eldest is joined by other female up-and-comers for the campaign including singer Grimes, model Kenya Kinski-Jones and actress Amandla Stenberg who is known for playing Rue in the Hunger Games. 

"I miss this Beautiful Girl! Looking forward to seeing her very soon!," reads the caption of a photo shared by Madge from the campaign. 

Meanwhile, Lourdes' famous Mum is off finishing up her Rebel Heart tour as she fights for her son Rocco's custody. 

Rocco left the States in December to be with his dad, Guy Ritchie, in London and a bitter legal battle has ensued between the parents. 

Most notably Madonna missed a court hearing over the dispute in the UK this week as she had a show in Australia.
