Madonna is coming. Look out.
Madonna has announced a world tour, including 14 dates in North America. "I'm going to turn the world into one big dance floor," she says in her press release. So far, the world only includes the US, Canada and Europe. Which is probably as it should be; the Kabbalah-loving Material Girl in Baghdad sounds like a really crummy idea.
If you're a Madonna fan (are there still Madonna fans?) you'll be thrilled that the tour of North America kicks off here in LA, at the Forum, on May 21.
Apparently some people are enthusiastic about the uber-buffed 47-year-old: her brand new tour site is entirely down. Maybe that's because compared to Jessica Simpson and the American Idol parade, Madonna is breathtakingly talented. Or maybe it's because the '80s are back ... and the Madonnabes are coming back, too.
