The memoir based on Ciccone’s life and 47 years of growing up with and working with his sister — Madonna— the most famous woman in the world, now has a cover.

The Sun reports the book will include Madonna’s past lesbian flings (hint: Gwyneth, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera mentioned), her rocky marriage to Hollywood actor Sean Penn and her rows with film director husband Ritchie.

The book will be available on July 15th

Amanda Seyfried’s Gimme Gimme Gimme

This is the music video of Amanda Seyfried’s attempt on ABBA’s Gimme Gimme Gimme to promote Mama Mia: The Movie which also stars Dominic Cooper and Meryl Streep. The ABBA song is still good after so many years but promoting the movie with Seyfried’s singing? I’m not so sure. What’s for sure is that her attempt is definitely not the best cover out there.

Pete Wentz: Gay Circus Act

Pete Wentz from Fall Out Boy has landed the cover story of the August 2008 issue of OUT Magazine. In the interview, he talks about sexuality, his childhood and Andy Warhol:

“Warhol impacted you in the ’80s whether you wanted or not,” he says, but after seeing Piero Manzoni’s Merda d’artista (literally, cans allegedly filled with “artist’s shit”) as a kid, he followed the theme to Warhol. Tributes to his hero fittingly run the gamut, from T-shirts — one has Warhol’s name across the chest of a baseball-style jersey; another is a set of cartoon monster portraits with “Warholier than thou” as tagline — to a new bar with an underground space modeled after Warhol’s less glamorous hangout, Max’s Kansas City.”

Listen to Cyndi Lauper’s New Song

After more than 2 decades in the music business, Cyndi Lauper continues to surprise us with her music and performances.

Check out her brand-new song “Into The Night Life,” an electro-driven dance stomper taken from her forthcoming new album “Bring Ya To The Brink.” The singer explains in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that the song title was inspired by Henry Miller’s book Into the Night Life that “inspired Lawrence Ferlinghetti’s A Coney Island of the Mind, which inspired me to describe the images of nightlife here in NYC.”

The track was produced by savvy soundboard wizard Peer Astrom who previously worked with Britney Spears and Madonna. It is good to get some hot fresh material from the singer after she previously released cover and acoustic albums.

The pup and Hayden Christensen (the young adult Anakin Skywalker from Star Wars) are neck to neck in terms of cuteness in the cover of the spring/summer issue of GQ Style Italy photographed by Guy Aroch. I know, it’s a tough decision isn’t it?

Marc Jacobs: Illustration to Photograph

Designer Marc Jacobs covers the June/July 08 issue of Interview magazine (celebrating what would have been Andy Warhol‘s 80th birthday on August 6), donning false eyelashes and a classic white Warhol wig for a series of portraits that seem to shift from illustration to photograph. A very Andy Warhol drag homage.

In the interview, Marc Jacobs says; “Warhol is Warhol. He’s practically a god. I thought, ‘I’m going to get a lot of hell for this.”
