IndieNewsroom: Madonna’s New Album Cover…Blake Lively Wants Tranny Kids…Ellen Writes a Check to MObama Her Pecs Can’t Cash


- Madonna is back in a big way. In addition to a new film (that may or may not be awful), a Super Bowl halftime performance this weekend (that may or may not feature an exposed nipple) and a video with Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. that debuts tonight during American Idol (that may or may not involve a threesome), the Queen of Pop also has a new album coming out called MDNA. And this is the cover. I’m getting a little Breathless Mahoney. [Paper]

- Red-hot raptress Azealia Banks is apparently bisexual. But then again she’s a 20-year old kid from New York, so that’s like saying she apparently carries a knife on her. No big deal. [NYT]

- Blake Lively, speaking to Elle about her future baby plans, expressed an interest in trannying up America’s youth. ”I hope to have a few girls one day. If not girls, they better be trannies. Because I have some amazing shoes and bags and stories that need to be appreciated.” Now that’s the hallmark of a good mother. Meanwhile, some people take offense at Lively’s — and others — use of “tranny,” but those trannies need to grow a pair. Through hormone injections, natch. [Elle]

- And speaking of trannies, Lana del Rey on the cover of Vogue UK everyone! [E! Online Twitter]

- Remember those jerks who were trying to oust Ellen DeGeneres from JC Penney’s new marketing campaign? The gays are not having it. [The Cut]

- And in other Ellen news, the talk show host challenged the First Lady of the United States to a push-up contest. And Michelle Obama was not having it. [Styleite]
