Madonna is the Queen of Cannes

Madonna is the Queen of Cannes

Madonna (in Chanel) joins director husband Guy Ritchie and actress pal Sharon Stone at the premiere of her new film, I Am Because We Are, at the Palais des Festivals during the 2008 Cannes Film Festival on Wendesday in Cannes, France.

I Am Because We Are is a documentary written, narrated and produced by Madonna. This movie documents the concern over the millions of orphans in the African country of Malawi who have lost parents and siblings to HIV and AIDS, many of whom live on the streets. The film also shows the efforts with Madonna‘s charitable organization Raising Malawi in helping with improving their lives and conditions.

UPDATE: OH MY, THAT DRESS IS MIGHTY SEE-THROUGH. ACK! MY EYES!

    “Some of you Angelina Jolie fans are so paranoid. You think anyone who is beautiful or doing charity or adopting a child or have beautiful kids are in competition with Angelina. You trash Madonna, Gwyneth, Tom Cruise or anyone you think is in competition with Brangelina. Angelina has been a superstar for 3 years. Madonna has been a superstar for more than 25 f***ing years and still going strong. She is also the most famous woman in the world and the biggest female in music in history.”

    I completely agree with you. I love Angelina too. But Madonna has been around for so much longer and she has really evolved as a human being. Have any of you even heard of Malawi before Madonna showed the way? Show some respect.

    THE QUEEN OF CANNES IS ANGELINA JOLIE!
    MADONNA IS VERY UGLY

  • joey416

    Madonna is gorgeous…shes pretty much worn every kind of dress you could possibly imagine from every designer, in every style, fabric and colour imaginable…this one is very couture, and glam and only Madonna could pull this off…

    A Peice of Art – showcased on a living work of Art!

  • Larry Brown

    “Queen” is absolutely correct, since Madonna is TRANSGENDERING before our very eyes-LOL!! Must be a side effect of that Kaballah/New Age crap she embraces. Her husband looks SCARED, as he should be- RUN FOR THE HILLS, MAN! RUN FOR THE HILLS to escape this New Age He/She entity!! “She” and Jolie are nothing more than GARGOYLES in dresses- LOL!!!!

  • l dobermann

    Madonna is the only modern style icon. Period.
    Someone above said that she never had any fashion sense. Madonna has never needed to follow fashion. She is fashion. And that’s not my opinion so don’t give me the ‘everybody’s entitled to blah blah’ speech, it’s a historic fact. And as for Angelina Jolie, I don’t see why anybody would want to come off as stupid as comparing her social influence with Madonna’s makes them seem. Angelina has made a few respected films – or at least one, I believe (no?) – and she’s a good humanitarian but as far as legend goes, she’s invisible next to Madonna. No one should take this negatively though – few people are comparable with Madonna.

    Have your idols but be sophisticated enough to recognise certain people’s social and historic importance. Maybe then you’ll understand why people go more crazy over Madonna than Angelina.

    Yes, the dress is SEE THRU, but this is Madonna we’re talking about. And she looks stunning by the way, love that damn dress!

  • holly wood

    i’d love to know who did her plastic surgeries…they made her look better than she ever looked even in her 20′s…but, still a stuck up jersey bitch.

  • Roadwork

    Dont you ever compare Jolie to Madonna, I get greatly offended. It make me sick to my stomach to think someone could compare the two. I love Madonna. Ive been waiting for her return to Cannes ever since that one greatest red carpet moment of all time with the Truth or Dare Premiere. Where she wore the retro white underwear under the pink cape with a big black buffont of curls on her head.

  • bet

    Queen my ass. She always seem to forgot she is 50 years old. They called it Cannegelina not cannemand. People do things for her not because they love her but because they afraid her big mouth . Not talent just big mouth that is all that work for her\

  • bet

    I don’t agree to compare a 50 year old to 32 year old. The age different brings the time the bussiness.
    In the billboard profile they say Maddonas talent is s manuplation. Check to see it. But for Mariah Carrey they said it is her talent her amazing voice made her carrier.

  • chantall

    no offense i love the song 4 minutes and maddona but she looks FUG!! seriously the dress is nasty!

  • maggie

    OMG…. Fugly dress.
    She should’ve been arrested by fashion police!!!!

  • Icones

    Wow Madonna and Sharon Stone reunited in a picture!!!! the 2 biggest stars,evryone in canne say that this is the picture of ” cannes” that will stay there for some long years the 2 hottest icones together! everyone were crasy about today’s premiere a real storm .

    AS for “Bet”no offense, but i think it’s an insult and a bit ridiclous to compare the level of talent and fame of the queen with your littel new popular ” brad stealing ” idol ,if ppl talkedabout your idol it’s only because of brad pitt no one was pay attention to her before,every one knows that, she had been in cannes in 2004 for a cartoon no one pay attention to her , she was just known to get f*cks in the limos, cut herself and wear a vial of her blood, a psychotic ho, nothing more.

    “Can you dress me up in Botox, in Botox all over my body… ”
    Her face is FROZEN.

    Aslo Madonna’s hair colorist must make a fortune to put in the “pretend” dark root hair growth. We know your gray in there Madonna. The deliberate dye job is so obvious.

    lcones,
    Maddona was known for being a fu*ck when she was around her age 20 years ago.. I am talking about now . Did maddona get the standovation like angiea for her work? Not.Did she become who she is because of her talent not. She become famous because of Manuplaion , big mouth and sexuality.Angie is young her pouplariy grown because of her hard work and talent next of her beauty. Off course Brad won’t hurt. He is a very successful actor . If that was only for her just assocation with the Brad , why no body gives a shit for Guy Richi he is with maddona right?
    I am not comparing them because of age diffrence , time in the business and all but don’t barage about Maddona as though she is a singer with the voice like Mariah Carry.

  • bae

    bet you’re a dumbass.. known for being a fu*k? what does that mean? Madonna did get a standing ovation smartass. Yes Madonna did become who she was from talent. Angelina wont be remembered 100 years from now. Why? Because she hasnt done anything that important in terms of pop culture. Sorry

  • yi

    BET is stupid to compare angelina and madge!!!! angelina is , yes, beautiful, but so what ? what great movies she had done? none at all!!! except the effect action movie tomb raiders that’s all !!! what else could she do???? only B grade movies!!!!

    well and for mariah!!! she’s famous in the US but to the world she not even 1/10 of madge!!! she has a great voice , gifted not talented, she’s like a stupid barbie with big boobs, just like a sex toy for men, very embrassing!!!

    check out the statistic in GLOBAL CHART / UNITED WORLD CHART , dude ! who is the real queen of pop ( not queen of USA) madge has 13 no.1 hits for GLOBAL CHART while mariah has only……………4!!! who really cares about US billboard chart ! it’s just only one country can’t represent the whole world!!!

  • ReadTheLetter

    I agree with the masses Madonna is and has been the Queen of Cannes… the papparazi went absolutely insane when she stepped out of her car onto the red carpet. Brangelina is just a media fad.. there is no real substance to it. Madonna has been in the game for over 25 years

  • Louis

    WOWOWOWOWOWOW!!!!! Madonna looks amazing. The gown is Chanel haute couture. Very sexy and always edgy. I applaud Madonna for never conforming to the stereotyping of what a 50 year old woman should look like. That’s right Madge, show your tits. They look fabulous.

  • elaine

    The dress that several of you have criticized for being “trashy” is a Chanel Haute Couture. It may not be to everyone’s liking, but it certainly isn’t boring.

  • sandra

    she looks sexy and beautiful.

  • coco

    I like madonna and chanel may be haute couture but not anyone can wear a chanel. It is like one cannot buy class no matter how much money you got. Her choice of chanel doesnt go with her age. Sharon stone is appropriately dressed. Sorry but madonna doesnt look classy in this chanel. She made the chanel dress look trashy.

    Angie is an a class of her own. Madonna belongs in the music industry not films. Dont want to put madonna down but Madonna will never ever star in a clint eastwood movie.

  • coco

    no one in high society will think of buying this dress after madonna made it trashy

    Icones,
    I hate to do this, but it seems necessary.
    Sorry M’s fans,
    Brad Pitt is NOTHNG compared to Angelina Jolie, just an ex pinup.

    Years B.e.f.o.r.e. him, Angelina a.l.r.e.a.d.y:
    1.
    had all the most important awards, like an Oscar, 3 GG, 3 SAGs,
    etc, etc. (Pitt still hasn’t!)
    2.
    Angelina, ALL by HERSELF, sold TR (Lara Croft) for about $350 millions at the time.
    Nobody knew her?? !!!
    3.
    She was ALREADY an activist and humanitarian, GLOBALLY respected. He said he was just an actor who puts makeup on!
    4.
    She was already a MOMMY to Madd.
    5.
    She was ALREADY a PILOT.
    6.
    Also, all the men were already drooling over her, and
    she was already the sexiest, the most beautiful..

    Pitt, who is TWELVE years older than Angelina,
    didn’t have ANYTHING of all that — BEFORE ANGIE !
    It still wouldn’t, w/o her.
    He flies now, he’s humanitatian now in his 40s (hm?),
    he has kiddies NOW, he has an amazing girl in his life,NOW.
    Breaking News: Pitt REALLY DUMPED that tv.actress from “Freaks”.
    HE did, and so did the OTHERS.
    SHOCKING!
    Don’t be so angry with Angelina, she’s been the only one graceful in all that shite.
    Then you have those RESPONSIBLE for that effin fake merger, and their huge PR-machines (Huvanuston!)
    THINK a tad.

  • maria

    Madonna has a terrible dirty nail on the first picture. I think she’s much happier when Guy is by her side. He looks bored but is she who’s saving this marriage. Sharon hasbeen.

  • zara zabrina

    dat dress din suit her at all….and the hair..gosh! din she brush it or smtg? its look so messy. i’ve seen her do better with the hair. not this one apparently….

  • hello

    Madonna is wonderful. She is very talented and has been around a long time. I liked the dress but I wish she hadn’t worn the belt and the jewelry and done something differently with her hair. And maybe wore different shoes. In other words, I think she overdone it on the accessories.

  • Marta

    at least she covered her awful, manly arms

  • dita

    She is the Queen of the world….

  • ah!

    Madonna said “I am not a great singer but I’m a great entertainer”, and she was right. She’s always put on a show and careful crafted her image of controversial pop star through sex. She still does now with the latest kiss with her female back-up singer. She was on tabloid constantly in her heydays and constantly selling her bisexual fondness. She bared all deliberately on a book and performed oral s*x to a coke bottle on film. So she was scandalous than Jolie. In fact she was more.

    She was Queen of Cannes yesterday and Jolie was Queen the day before. Why the need to compare? In entertainment industry, there’s always a new queen and sometime the queen reign only a day. If it were otherwise, it would no longer be called entertaining.

  • ReadTheLetter

    Thats some hot haute couture she is wearing… wow her body fills it out perfectly. Guess those millions of hours at the gym paid off

    Gorgeous

  • http://http QUEEN & QUEEN MOTHER

    THE THE QUEEN and QUEEN MOTHER -
    Naturally, Angelina and Madonna.
    TRUE.
    REMEMBER MADONNA? She “killed” everyone on her way up –
    that’s her biggest talent by far.
    Angelina is not my idol – I don’t have one – but she could EASILY
    be a role model to girls everywhere on how to GROW UP and
    EVOLVE into this beautiful human being.
    Brad Pitt?
    He once was with PLAIN JANEs, homely next door nonentities,
    America’s SH$Thearts,
    and he looked GOOD. Now he blands into the background and plays
    body- guards in his real life.
    I like Madonna’s husband, cool guy.

    LONG LIVE THE QUEEN AND THE QUEEN MOTHER!
    —————————————————————————-

    For now I Didn’t Get the Dress
    But You Must Agree
    She’s Not So Simple, and She’s not Dressing by Her Own
    +Actually at some pictures the Dress’ Really Great –

    MADONNA RIDES AGAIN…

  • Lola1

    “Gross. Not even women in their 20’s should have on see-through dresses. So trashy.”

    People have strange ideas of trashy. It’s 20′s. I bet your idea of classy is… Aguilera ?

    “shes still pretty for an old lady lol”

    She’s not old. Maybe you’re just… stupid ? : )

  • Lola1

    #26: It’s classy couture. Perhaps you should take a 101Style class..

  • Lola1

    “LONG LIVE THE QUEEN AND THE QUEEN MOTHER!”

    There is no QUEEN Mother, Madonna is the Queen. End of.
