A New York judge has apparently decided to reinstate charges against Robert Linhart, a crazed fan arrested outside Madonna's apartment two years ago.

This after dismissing his case earlier ... don't see that every day.

Linhart, a retired New York City firefighter, was arrested in September 2010 after carrying a sign that read, "M, the Universe brought us together in 1992 and again this year in Prague. Meet me please XXX." Yeah. Real normal.

Linhart was charged at the time with a host of offenses: criminal mischief, graffiti, and possession of a weapon ... an ice pick he allegedly had in his car.

But lucky for him, area prosecutors failed to bring him to trial within 180 days of his original indictment, so a judge dismissed Linhart's case in March 2012.

However, a judge now says that the 180 days were previously miscalculated and that prosecutors have 15 more days to formally bring him to trial.

Good for Madge. Bummer for him, and the first judge who can't do math.

Madonna recently went out of her way to once again not-so-subtly remind everyone that she is, in fact, in a sense, an older version of Lady Gaga.

The queen of pop was performing "Express Yourself" at a rehearsal in Tel Aviv, Israel when she suddenly trotted out a cover of "Born This Way."

Of course, the two tracks blended seamlessly, reviving debate over whether Lady Gaga ripped off Madonna with her 2011 smash hit single.

Although she stayed mum on Gaga's song for some time, Madge eventually referred to it as "reductive" and undoubtedly influenced by her earlier work.

There is no actual feud here, but the whole thing seems to have an air of condescension, as if Madonna is wielding the cover over her head.

Or, on the other hand, is Madonna merely winking at the controversy while celebrating the younger performer and the highest form of flattery?

Tell us what you think in the comments below.

A literally smoking-hot photograph of a nude Madonna lying seductively on a bed almost two decades ago is set to go to auction in New York next month, MTV reports.

The pic in question was taken by fashion photographer Steven Meisel for her controversial 1992 book Sex, but for whatever reason was never included in it.

Featuring a bleach-blonde Madge, the picture shows the queen of pop wearing nothing but a strategically-placed sheet and holding a cigarette to her lips.

Judith Eurich from the auction house selling the photo suggested that the cigarette was merely for dramatic purposes, telling the UK's Daily Mail:

"Madonna is, by all accounts, a very healthy person and I'd have to imagine the cigarette is just a prop to make her look sexy and sultry."

Indeed, Madonna recently blasted accusations of hypocrisy over her daughter Lourdes' smoking habit and insisted she doesn't even partake.

The latest photo of Madonna nude is expected to fetch more than £5,000 ($7,500 US) when it goes to auction at Bonhams on May 8. Sweet.

Madonna is taking a stand against cigarette smoking, yet glamorizes smoking in her new music video for "Girl Gone Wild," setting off cries of hypocrisy.

The topic came up when The Queen of Pop appeared on Today and was grilled over her 15-year-old daughter Lourdes being caught smoking recently.

Madonna says she "wasn't very happy" about the Lourdes Leon picture, adding "I don't approve of anyone smoking cigarettes, most of all my daughter."

Well, except in the "Girl Gone Wild" video:

Pressed on the apparent hypocrisy of herself smoking seductively in the video, she says it was just an "accessory" and she doesn't smoke in real life.

That's very possible. She can use it as part of her video art form and have no interest in partaking, and certainly wish that her teenager daughter not.

However, its mere presence in the video may influence others, given that Madonna is one of the more glamorous, legendary performers of all time.

Well, at least before MDNA album sales tanked.

What do you think? Hypocritical? Or totally different because a music video is an art form and does not dictate how Madonna lives her personal life?

Madonna's new album MDNA has sort of crashed and burned, posting nowhere close to the kind of sales figures one would expect from the Queen of Pop.

The record sold 359,000 copies when it debuted at #1 on the Billboard charts, but has since plummeted to 46,000 copies in its second week of release.

While many acts would be grateful to sell 400,000-plus units, it's a letdown for one of the all-time greats, not to mention a record-setting dropoff.

Is she the Immaterial Girl?

Interestingly, in its first week of release, her manager Guy Oseary said of MDNA:

“People are really digging it. We feel good about the album. It's her 12th album and the same story she had 30 years ago. That’s an amazing accomplishment.”

Some critics agree that it's the same story as 30 years ago. They just don't see it as a big selling point for Madonna. Said the Los Angeles Times:

"MDNA more than anything sounds like an album made by someone who lost touch with the desires of today’s music... the Madonna of today has lost the art of surprise."

Ouch.

Piers Morgan has banned Madonna from his show.

The reason why is a mystery, but Piers tweeted to Madge on Tuesday night, "Welcome to Twitter. You're still banned from my show. Love Piers X."

That about clears up his feelings on the singer.

Madonna's manager, Guy Oseary, replied, "Really?" and attached a letter from Morgan's producer inviting Madonna to be a guest on his UK chat show.

  • Madonna at the Golden Globes
  • Morgan, Piers

Piers then tweeted back: "Madonna has only been banned from my CNN show, not my UK show, which sent that invite. But I'm now banning her from that too."

According to TMZ, Madonna sources have absolutely no idea why Piers is angry at her, adding, "She doesn't even know who he is."

Piers said in January 2011 that banned Madonna from his show for life because she's been "an irritant in my life for 20 years." Well, that'll do it.

The invite to Piers' UK show is therefore baffling, however, perhaps whomever issued it wasn't aware Piers thinks she's a grotesque con artist.

Madonna has made peace with Deadmau5 after a comment she made at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami led to him launching a tirade against her on Twitter.

The DJ, real name is Joel Zimmerman, took issue with Madge asking "How many people in this crowd have seen Molly," believing she was advocating drug use.

Molly is a slang term for MDMA, or ecstasy, and with Madonna's new album titled MDNA, the electro music star assumed she meant that. And he was PISSED.

"Quite a f'n philanthropist. But hey, at least yer HIP AND TRENDY! F***ing cant smack my head hard enough right now," Deadmau5 railed against Madonna.

"That's your big contribution to EDM? Thats your big message to ultra attendies? Hipsterspeak for looking for drugs? F**k off you f***ing IDIOT. F**k."

"Seriously, I giveth not a f**king single F**K for slating on Madonna ... i appreciate her meteoric career and good deeds done, but WHAT THE F**K WAS THAT?"

In response, Madonna she posted a picture of herself in Minnie Mouse, writing: "From one mouse to another, I don't support drug use and I never have."

"I was referring to the song 'Have You Seen Molly?', written by my friend Cedric Gervais who I almost worked with on my new album."

Open mouth, insert foot, Mau5.

Madonna has come under attack from Deadmau5, one of the world's most famous DJs, for glamorizing ecstasy use, allegedly, during a recent concert.

Her Madgesty took the stage at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami this weekend, asking crowd, "How many people in this crowd have seen molly?"

"Molly" is a slang term for MDMA, one of the key ingredients in ecstasy, a drug hugely popular within the electronic dance music community.

Incidentally (or not) Madonna's new album, which drops today, is called MDNA. Watch her address the crowd at the 45-second mark below:

The crowd apparently loved the veiled inquiry from Madonna, but Deadmau5 is not a fan at all, going on Facebook and tearing her a new one.

"Very classy there madonna. 'HUR DUR HAS ANYONE SEEN MOLLY???' such a great message for the young music lovers at ultra," he wrote.

The Mau5 added, "Quite the f'n philanthropist. but hey, at least yer HIP AND TRENDY! f*cking cant smack my head hard enough right now."

Bottom line: Mind-altering drugs are not cool, ravers. So says a man-mau5 whose fan base is probably on them 97 percent of the time.

Is Madonna's new album MDNA one giant shot at ex Guy Ritchie?

The icon's eight-year marriage to the director  ended bitterly in 2008. One year later, she opened up to Rolling Stone, admitting the union was "challenging."

Had their marriage not ended, the singer said she might have "thrown [herself] off a building." That's a bit extreme, but it sounds like ending it was best.

Still, is her bitterness at Ritchie on display in her 12th album?

Madonna, who's now dating dancer Brahim Zaibat, 24, has come up with an intense set of pumping synth-pop and electronic dub-step tracks for MDNA.

The lyrics contain the really hard-hitting material, however, and not just in the cryptically titled "I F*%ked Up." There appear to be overt shots taken.

"Didn't have a prenup," she bemoans in "I Don't Give A." On the blistering "Love Spent," Madge cracks, "Would you have married me if I were poor?"

Ouch. Looks like the Queen of Pop always gets the last word. MDNA drops on Monday morning. Will you be purchasing Madonna's latest release?

Madonna's big new album MDNA finally drops next week, and her latest offering from it has leaked online. In "I F*%ked Up," she sings about ... how she did just that.

As the title indicates, her Madgesty contemplates a past misdeed.

“I f*%ked up,” she sings. “I made a mistake ... Nobody does it better then myself ... I’m sorry ... I’m not afraid to say ... I wish I could take it back, but I can’t.”

For what, she doesn't say, but deep stuff, right?

She soon kicks up in a notch to a mid-tempo dance groove, so it's not entirely a downer of a track from our favorite "Girl Gone Wild." Take a listen to it below:

Madonna Quotes

Leave her alone. She’s gonna be 16 soon and then 17 and then 18, and then she might show her knees and then what's gonna happen?

Madonna [on Miley Cyrus Vanity Fair photos]

My husband and I are not planning on getting a divorce. I know Alex Rodriguez through Guy Oseary, who manages both of us. I brought my kids to a Yankee game. I am not romantically involved in any way with Alex Rodriguez. I have nothing to do with the state of his marriage or what spiritual path he may choose to study.
