Iron Maiden's Bruce Dickinson On Lady Gaga: "She's Way Better Than Madonna" (VIDEO)

It is well known that Lady Gaga is a huge metal fan, especially of Iron Maiden



Not only Iron Maiden's lead singer Bruce Dickinson likes Gaga, 29, but he thinks she is way better than the Queen of Pop.


"I think she's great, and I agree with her: she's not the next Madonna," Dickinson, 57, revealed to Corus Radio in a September 23 interview, noting: "She's way better than that."

Bruce also praised her vocal and instrumental skills.



"First of all, she can sing - she's got a belter of a voice - (and) she's a really good instrumentalist. And she's got a great sense of drama. And anybody that could turn up to an awards ceremony dressed as a bacon sandwich gets my vote. I mean, she's great," he claimed.

Check out the video below…
 
 


As for that Madonna comparison, the Iron Maiden frontman was possibly referring to a recent Gaga interview with CR Fashion Book. 


"I always used to say to people, when they would say: "Oh, she's the next Madonna." No, I'm the next Iron Maiden," Gaga was quoted as saying, adding: "Those guys were filling stadiums, and they still are. And it's because of the culture of the music, the poetry that's so powerful, that whenever the fans come together, they unite in the essence of what Iron Maiden is all about.”

Ariana Grande Befriended Madonna Over Kabbalah

According to femalefirst.co.uk, Ariana Grande became friends with Madonna over Kabbalah and is inspired by her "fearless" attitude.

 


Grande, 22, befriended the Queen of Pop because of their mutual interest in the religion.



In case you hear "Kabbalah" for the first time, it is a popular faith - an offspring of Judaism and is followed by many Hollywood A-list stars.



""I practice Kabbalah as well", so that was one of the first things she mentioned, because I had my Zohar in my pocket," Ariana revealed to V magazine.



"And we danced together at her Oscar party. That's all I can ever ask for. She inspires me endlessly. I'm so inspired by her fearlessness. She was like: "This is me and if you don't like it, then go." That's so cool, you know?" the singer added.

Madonna Brings Anderson Cooper On Stage During "Rebel Heart Tour" In Brooklyn

Madonna has followed Taylor Swift's footsteps by bringing CNN anchor Anderson Cooper onstage during her "Rebel Heart Tour" in Brooklyn, New York.






In case you don't know, Swift, 25, has brought numerous celebrity guests onstage during every leg of her "1989 World Tour".



Madonna, 57, appeared flawless rocking a skintight, provocative black number for the performance, which was covered with chains of crystals, along with a pair of gloves.


Cooper, 48, wore a fitted, black, short-sleeved T-shirt, matched with a pair of dark wash jeans.






Anderson seemed in good spirits as he shared the stage with the pop icon.



The Queen of Pop took to social media after the show to thank the TV personality for joining her onstage.



"Anderson thanks for being my B***h tonight!!! Hope you enjoyed the Banana‼️‼️‼️(heart emoji) U!!! (heart emoji) #rebelhearttour," Madonna tweeted.

Madonna And Lady Gaga Sing Edith Piaf's "La Vie En Rose": Coincidence ? (VIDEOS)

Madonna paid tribute to Lady Gaga during her "MDNA Tour" back in 2012 with a mashup of "Born This Way" and her own "Express Yourself"






On the pop icon's "Rebel Heart Tour", which rolled through Madison Square Garden with a huge success, Madonna, 57, paid homage to another track related to Gaga: Edith Piaf's "La Vie en Rose," calling it "one of the greatest love songs ever written."



That's the same all time classic French song Gaga, 29, belted out a few times in 2015 (before the "Rebel Heart Tour" began), including during her knockout Atlantic City concert with legendary singer Tony Bennett.


The strange thing, however, is that both artists are covering "La Vie en Rose" on tours in 2015.







Do you think it's a coincidence? Who performed "La Vie en Rose" better?

Madonna and Amy Schumer are famous for their provocative performances. So, it wasn't shocking that when the two celebrities share the stage together on Wednesday at one of Madonna's Madison Square Garden stops during her "Rebel Heart Tour", things got out of hand.


After opening for Madonna, 57, Schumer, 34, joined her onstage for a track, during which the pop veteran lifted up her dress and slapped her butt.




The comedian strolled out onstage to join the Queen of Pop, showing off a black dress and strappy sandals.




Amy soon turned around and made to lean over as Madonna took a peek at her lacy black underwear and gave her several slaps across her bottom.



Four backup dancers in tuxedos cheered as the two superstars had fun together.



Schumer seemed to be enjoying every single minute, waving her arms in the air and flaunting her dancing moves on stage as the pop icon sang to her. 



As the actress went to stand up, Madonna could be heard saying: "I'm not done!" before faking to hit Amy's derriere and then twerking behind her.



Madonna later lifted Schumer back up and the two could be spotted leaving the stage together.

Sean Penn Introduces Daughter Dylan To Madonna After NYC Concert

Sean Penn introduced his daughter Dylan Penn to his ex-wife Madonna after her "Rebel Heart" NYC show on Thursday, September 17. 








Penn, 57, and his model daughter, 24, whose mother is his second wife Robin Wright were seen in the audience at the Queen of Pop's "Rebel Heart" tour stop at Madison Square Garden and according to a source Dylan and Madonna met for the first time backstage at the concert.



"She had never met Madonna before, but Madonna was really sweet to her," the insider told US Weekly, noting: "Madonna and Sean have stayed close friends over the years, so of course she embraced Dylan."


Sean was also spotted standing and smiling during the show when Madonna sang her 80s smash hit "True Blue." 



In case you don't know, "True Blue" was dropped in 1986, when the couple were still married and in the notes for the "True Blue" album, the pop icon wrote: "This is dedicated to my husband, the coolest guy in the universe."


The two superstars were married for four wild years before going their separate ways in 1989. Just last month Madonna posted a sultry throwback image, taken by Herb Ritts, with her ex in celebration of their mutual birthday on August 17. (Madonna's pals have referred to the actor as the artist's "one true love.")

It's not the first time Sean has been spotted at one of Madonna's concerts. He also attended a "MDNA" show in L.A. back in 2012, where a concertgoer revealed to Us Weekly that "their chemistry was off the charts."

Grace Jones Talks Madonna, Miley Cyrus, Beyonce, Lady Gaga And A Lot More

Grace Jones has opened up about several pop icons including the Queen of Pop: Madonna in her new memoir "I'll Never Write My Memoirs". 






At one point Jones, 67, revealed why she can never follow the A-lister zeitgeist.


"Trends come along and people say: "Follow that trend." There's a lot of that around at the moment: "Be like Sasha Fierce (Beyonce). Be like Miley Cyrus. Be like Rihanna. Be like Lady Gaga. Be like Rita Ora and Sia. Be like Madonna." I cannot be like them - except to the extent that they are already being like me," the controversial artist explained.

Madonna Stuns In Her "Rebel Heart Tour" Debut

Madonna began her "Rebel Heart Tour" on Wednesday at the Bell Center in Montreal and she looked absolutely gorgeous. 







Not only Madonna, 57, wowed the audience with her once again amazing performance but also with the number of her haute-couture costume changes.


The Queen of Pop rocked looks created by Jeremy Scott for Moschino and Alessandro Michele for Gucci and as well as outfit ensembles from Alexander Wang and Fausto Puglisi's eponymous lines. 





According to WWD, who talked in detail with the pop veteran's costume designer Arianne Phillips, she also modeled designs from featured Miu Miu, Swarovski and Prada on the stage.


With each creation, it's really important that the costume will boost Madonna's performance and not inhibit it. If urged to select between fashion and function, she would choose the latter.







"For her, the performance comes first," Wang revealed to WWD, adding: "She has to be able to dance and move and feel comfortable in it."



Phillips, the stylist for her "Rebel Heart tour", agreed, noting: "(Madonna) doesn't really finalize any of the designs until 100 percent of the choreography is set...It's a real back-and-forth conversation and it's a brutal process for most fashion designers. You're hanging in the balance while all the practical aspects are worked out, like the choreography and the quick-changes."

 
The end result definitely looks awesome!
