Madonna has responded to BET’s criticism of her tribute to the late Prince at the Billboard Music Awards.
Welcome to Retro Rewind, the TGJ original feature carved out to celebrate TV and Film’s glorious past.
Today, we return to 1993 to revisit Madonna‘s erotic thriller ‘Body of Evidence.’
Directed by Uli Edel, the movie tells the tale of a young woman named Rebecca Carlson who is charged with the murder of a wealthy man.
His cause of death? Erotic asphyxiation.
What happens when the lawyer enlisted to represent her in court finds himself trapped in her deep, dark and dirty web.

Organizer Claps Back At Fans Disappointed With Queen of Pop’s Inclusion On Tribute Bill
Prince fans who can’t exactly get into the groove with Queen of Pop Madonna tributing her fellow music royal at this year’s Billboard Music Awards will be sorely disappointed to learn she’s still being billed as the show’s most highly anticipated feature.
According to Mark Bracco, the ceremony’s executive producer, the show will continue as planned despite a viral petition calling for Madge’s removal from any tribute to the fallen icon. Their efforts, Bracco suggests, were noticed…but disregarded.

Singer Has Locked Horns With Both Ladies In Previous Years
Surely, we’re not alone in wanting Mariah Carey to stop by Watch What Happens Live more?
The show must be serving truth serum at its famed bar because Mimi, like many of their guests, waxed all sorts of honest about the juiciest subjects – such as Jennifer Lopez.
In newly surfaced footage, the 46-year-old also opened up about Madonna and Nicki Minaj – two names she has exchanged shade grenades with in the past.
So what’s her take on the ladies these days?

Billboard’s planned Prince tribute with Madonna has not impressed certain corners of the late singer’s fanbase.
The Pop queen has been tapped to perform at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards and, as at writing, she’s the only act enlisted for the “unmissable” tribute at the May 22nd ceremony.
Angered, a supporter of the Purple one started a petition demanding an amendment to the mono Madge line-up. And it’s gaining traction.
Pop Queen Will Pay Homage Electrifying Emperor
The Billboard Music Awards 2016 just added a mega-star to its already stacked line-up of performers.
For, it has been officially announced that Madonna is set to honor the late great Prince – who died suddenly on April 21st aged 57.

It’s that time of year again!
Indeed, with May comes the highly anticipated Met Gala and its resplendent red carpet. Boasting foot traffic from stars like Taylor Swift, Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Ciara, and so many more, the jaw-dropping annual event boasts a high-tech theme this year.
Tuck in for pics and tell us who nailed it:
Singer Extends History Making Reign As Queen of the Road
Queen of Pop Madonna‘s ‘Rebel Heart’ era may have been accompanied by her worst-selling album ever and lowest grossing tour in over a decade, but that hasn’t stopped her (in true Madge fashion) from still emerging a winner.
As previously reported, this time last week the ‘Living For Love’ singer saw her name listed in history books as “the highest grossing female artist in touring history” as her current effort, the ‘Rebel Heart’ tour, helped push her career-long gross past the $1.2 billion mark.
Joining an exclusive group of hitmakers (all-male) who have grossed more than $1 billion over their collective efforts (Rolling Stones, U2, Bruce Springsteen, Bon Jovi, and former nemesis Elton John), Madonna – with the inclusion of receipts from the tour’s last stop in Australia – can now boast leadership of the entire pack of solo artists.

Singer’s Career-Long Ticket Sales Cross $1B Mark Thanks To Her 9th World Tour
Queen of Pop Madonna proved a long time ago her reign was far from limited to pop charts.
Currently holding the record for the most successful tour ever by a solo act (see: 2008’s whopping $408 million-generating ‘Sticky and Sweet Tour’), the songstress is now making more noise in touring history books thanks to her current outing ‘The Rebel Heart Tour’ (christened after her 13th album of the same name).
And, while the ‘Living For Love’-led project is the worst-selling of her career, its supportive tour is singing a much different tune.

Janet Jackson Dethrones Madonna’s ‘Justify My Love’
Readers of That Grape Juice know what avid music lovers we are – especially of hits past.
So, just as our retrospective features ‘From the Vault’ and ‘TGJ Replay’ allow us the chance to re-spin the gems and jams of yesterday of one artist, our newest feature Chart Rewind – a variation of our current Retro Rewind assay – accedes salutes to an entire era of music history.
This week we’ll go back to our jam ‘Love Will Never Do’ – the 7th and final single from Janet Jackson‘s magnum opus ‘Rhythm Nation.’ Reaching the summit of the Hot 100 this week in 1991, the song knocked nemesis, Madonna, from the top spot with her controversial hit ‘Justify My Love.’ This feat, we’re sure, gave Jan’s fans added satisfaction (as if they didn’t already have enough to boast). For, ‘Love’ not only made the pop icon the only artist in history to achieve 7 top five singles from one album, it also gave her the distinct honor of being the only artist in history to have a #1 single over three different calendar years from one album.
Talk about iconic!
