Madonna has chosen Rita Ora as the new face of her Material Girl clothing line! Rita will replace Georgia May Jagger, in the new $760,000 deal.
The 22-year-old Jay-Z protege took to Instagram to share the big news. “Joining forces with Madonna and Lola!” she wrote. “It’s official Ritabots – I’m the new face of Material Girl!” (Did she just say Ritabots?)
Madonna and her daughter Lola, 16, are also excited. They released a press statement this morning saying, “Rita is a talented beauty but what really drew us to her is the confidence she oozes through her music and her unique sense of style. On stage or off, in photos or on the street – she’s a magnet! This is what the Material Girl brand is all about!”
Apparently Rita was chosen by Lola. A source told The Sun, “Lourdes has been a fan of Rita for a while and has been to many of her gigs. She persuaded her mum to see her. Rita jumped at the chance because she’s such a fan of the Queen of Pop. She also hopes it will help her crack the States in the same way she has the UK.”
Rita’s Fall 2013 campaign will be unveiled in July!

As reported in April, Madonna‘s kid Lourdes Leon is currently dating her LaGuardia Performing Arts High School schoolmate Timothee Chalame, whom you may know as the Vice President’s son on “Homeland.” She’s 16, and he’s 17, and Madonna is NOT letting them hang out alone!
Page Six via Celebitchy reports:
Strict Madonna finally let her daughter Lourdes Leon go on a date with her boyfriend, “Homeland” star Timothee Chalamet, without parental supervision. But the Material Girl sent a burly chaperone to keep a very close eye on the young couple. Lourdes, 16, and Timothee, 17, classmates at LaGuardia HS of Music & Art and Performing Arts on the Upper West Side, were spotted Saturday night at Brother Jimmy’s BBQ on Second Avenue. Page Six exclusively reported in April that the two were dating, and shortly after, they were spotted on a double date with Lourdes’ father, Carlos Leon, and his fiancee. But on Saturday, Lourdes escaped the watchful eye of her protective parents to have dinner chaperoned by one of Madge’s bodyguards. While the lovebirds sat at a corner table, the guard sat at another and “never took his eyes off of them,” a source told us. Spies told us Timothee reached a few times across the table and grabbed his date’s hand. “They were leaning close together to talk before food came. He was making her laugh a lot,” a spy said. The teens went Dutch on the $51 bill. When the date was over, the bodyguard swiftly escorted the two to a chauffeured car. Timothee, whose character on “Homeland” was aptly shadowed by Secret Service agents on dates, graduates this year. Lourdes graduates in 2014. Madonna recently told “Extra” about Lourdes’ companion, “She has a very nice boyfriend.” But asked if that was Chalamet, she turned coy and said, “I don’t know!”
Yikes. It can’t be easy dating the daughter of pop royalty! Two more years, and Lourdes is 18 and can legally tell Madge and whomever that she wants alone time with her man!

Ke$ha hit the red carpet last night wearing a very revealing dress! The ‘Die Young’ singer, 26, wore a LBD with a high slit up the side! She toned down the makeup and hair, which I always think looks better on her.
Tweeting a picture of herself before the awards show, the My Crazy Beautiful Life author, wrote “red carpet readyyyy,” clearly excited about showing off her new style.
Introducing Pitbull and Christina Aguilera before their performance of “Feel This Moment,” Kesha looked confident as ever — baring her fit, toned legs in the risque dress.
Her Warrior tour kicks off May 23 in Mansfield, Mass.

Madonna seemed to have gone MEAN GIRL on Gwyneth Paltrow at this year’s Met Gala, which may be why Gwyneth was throwing serious shade at the famous fashion fundraiser!
It’s no secret that the two were pretty tight years ago, but then had some strange falling out and now barely talk. So now, Madonna (apparently!) goes out of her way to be a little snarky to Goopy when they’re in a public context! Says US Weekly Print edition via Celebitchy:
The Material Girl is a Mean Girl! An insider tells Hot Stuff that Madonna went out of her way to make ex-friend Gwyneth Paltrow miserable at the May 6 Met Gala in NYC. Madonna gave Gwyneth the cold shoulder, then buddied up to tablemate – and current Paltrow pal – Beyonce.
“She chatted with Beyonce for most of the evening and didn’t even glance at Gwyneth,” says the source. “Everyone talked about it.”
The feud stems back to 2009, when Paltrow got fed up with the rude treatment from her onetime BFF.
“Madonna would sh-t on her, over and over,” says a Paltrow source. Years after Gwyneth dropped her, Madge is still hurt by the snub, says another insider: “She fels Gwyneth abandoned her. Now Madonna will do anything to make her suffer.”
And apparently she did. Days after the fashion bash, Paltrow told interviewers she would never attend again.
“It was so un-fun, I did not enjoy it at all.”
Wow, I can totally see Madonna being rude, but I can NOT picture Paltrow being a victim. She just seems so…rude (or oblivious) herself, at times. What do you think…did Madonna seriously snub Paltrow, or does this whole story reek of tabloid exaggeration?

Here we have more pictures from last night’s MET Gala. The theme was Punk, although not that many celebrities went with the theme. One who certainly did was Sarah Jessica Parker, who showed up in a faux-hawk headdress. I love it – I think if anyone can rock it, it’s her.
The headdress is by famed milliner Philip Treacy, with Christian Louboutin boots and a Giles Deacon dress.
Madonna’s ensemble was by Givenchy. She definitely looked punk!
Rooney Mara went bridal in this white lace gown by Givenchy.
Gisele Bundchen wore this black and metal dress, I’m not sure who it’s by. Her husband, Tom Brady, stands behind her.

Remember when Gwyneth Paltrow and Madonna used to be BFFs? Well, things are getting ugly, ladies and gentlemen. The two former “work-out” buddies are both still in amazing shape….so is there a little competition as to who has the better body? According to sources, Gwynnie thinks she’s in better shape, but she would never call Madonna to “rub it in.”
While promoting her new movie, ‘Iron Man 3,’ Gwyneth was asked whether or not she would call Madonna up to brag about her washboard abs. The 40-year-old actress replied, “No, I don’t think I would. Why rub it in? Let’s face it. I’ll Polaroid my abs and text them to her,” she told ITN.co.uk.
