Photobucket Madonna Answers "The Advocate's" question about Lady GaGa..."Recently Time magazine referred to Madonna as “the Lady Gaga of the ’80s.” When I ask about this, a bit of a chill sweeps over the room. “I have no thoughts,” she says. “What’s the question?” So I ask it a different way: What do you think of how Gaga connects with her fans, and is it parallel to the relationship you had with gay fans early on?

Madonna pauses for a moment, composing herself. “It seems genuine,” she says, also seeming genuine. “It seems natural, and I can see why she has a young gay following. I can see that they connect to her kind of not fitting into the conventional norm. I mean, she’s not Britney Spears. She’s not built like a brick shithouse.“"

Following a broadcast, bloggers try to identify the dressmakers through praise as well as the inevitable nasty critiques – and only for the most positive public response will a designer come forward and acknowledge their creations. Guessing there’s no Chinese equivalent to Joan Rivers then? What a shame." - - via

A few things worth noting: Lea Michele ranks ahead of Rosie H-W, and Adele is five spots ahead of Megan Fox – who doesn’t even crack the top 95. Unsurprising spoiler: All men want Sofia Vergara." - - via

In an industry obsessed with weight, dress sizes, and recently created regulations to promote healthier lifestyles, is this really the best way to approach someone like Renn who once suffered from crippling anorexia?

The Voice Judges Play For Ellen

The Voice judges Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine (minus Cee-Loo Green who is "secretly" in Indianapolis to perform with Madonna at the Super Bowl) visit the Ellen Degeneres show to promote their upcoming season of the smash hit vocal show.

The trio give us the inside info on the newest season which is expected to be bigger and better then the debut season with more contestants making to try outs and Maroon 5 front man Adam Levine had some straight forward words on some competition rivalry with another American show.

The fun and games all happen below.

Extra| Christina Aguilera on the cover of Latina Magazine and exclusive behind the photo shoot video.

Music superstar Christina Aguilera graces the cover of Latina magazine’s March 2012 issue, which hits newsstands on Tuesday, February 14. The 31-year-old Ecuadorean singer opens up to Latina about marrying young, her estranged relationship with her father and being a proud Latina woman.

On getting married and divorced at a young age: “Was I too young? Not at all. I did the exact right thing at the time….I definitely wasn’t too young. I have always been older than my age.”

On growing older: “I was on the set of a film and the choreographer was 19 and I looked around at all the dancers and I was like, ‘Whoa! I’m the oldest person in this room. When did that happen?’”

On reconnecting with her father: “I’ve talked about how rough things were for me and I’m sure he’s heard it. He can’t be thrilled about it. So maybe one day we can do lunch…I’m 31 years old now. Maybe it’s time.”

On resting up from the intensity of shooting The Voice: “When I’m shooting The Voice, it’s intense. On a day like today, my ex has my son and we are not shooting, so I slept and I just slept. I love doing everything in my bed. Eating, sleeping…It’s my domain and my throne…I do it all in my bed.”

On how she handles gossip and brutal reviews: “I don’t read them. Ever…Why read what people are saying—good or bad?”

On criticisms of not being Latina enough: “I’ve dealt with that my whole life. I don’t speak the language fluently. And I’m split right down the middle, half Irish and half Ecuadorean. I should not have to prove my ethnicity to anyone. I know who I am.”

On planning another Spanish-language album: “All I know is no one can tell me I’m not a proud Latina woman…I dove headfirst into a Spanish-language album for that reason and I’m planning another one even though I don’t speak the language. I’m sure that doesn’t sit well with some people.”
