Madonna & Guy

Madonna & Guy

It’s nice to hear that Madge and Guy can actually be civil to one another despite all the rumors of a mud slinging divorce. Our sources tell us that Madonna and Guy Ritchie spent the weekend together in New York.
Guy met Madonna at the New York Kabbalah centre just a few days after the singer won custody of their children.
An onlooker said: “Guy was smiling and in good spirits. He still spends time with Madonna as a family.”
This was reportedly the second weekend in a row the estranged couple have met at the Kabbalah centre with their children: Rocco, eight, adopted son David, three, and Madonna’s daughter Lourdes, 12.

Guy’s father, John Ritchie, has recently said the couple are maintaining an amicable relationship because of their children, but he is delighted Madonna is distracting herself with “lots of boyfriends”.
The protective father, 79, said: “The worst thing would be if they reconciled.” Meanwhile, the marriage of one Madonna’s reported love interests, baseball star Alex Rodriguez, has officially ended.
Documents issued at a US county court stated his marriage to Cynthia was “irretrievably broken”. Rodriguez - known as ‘A-Rod’ - split from his wife of five years in the summer, following reports the sportsman had been dashing out for night time visits to Madonna’s New York apartment.

Gary Barlow has been voted the Greatest British Songwriter.

The Take That star was voted top in the poll, beating Beatles legends John Lennon and Paul McCartney, who were named second and third respectively.  Gary is responsible for some of Take That’s biggest hits, including UK number one singles ‘Pray’, ‘Back for Good’ and ‘Patience’.

He also penned a series of hits for other artists including former child singing sensation Charlotte Church and boy band Blue. Gary has won five prestigious Ivor Novello awards for his songwriting. Gary, who recently released album ‘Circus’ with Take That, feels his best work to date is his most recent.
He said: “This album has been the most enjoyable record I’ve ever made. It feels perfect and it feels like it could be our ultimate record.”
A spokesperson for research company onepoll, who conducted the survey of 3,000 people, said: “Gary has been responsible for some of the biggest hits of the past decade.”
Other artists to feature in the poll include Gary’s former Take That bandmate Robbie Williams, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin and George Michael.
