Off Topic: Now That's A Material Girl

When I first started listening to Madonna, I was young. Now I’m a rapidly aging former hipster. But Madonna still continues to amaze us with her trendsetting ways, most recently for dumping her record label and signing up with Live Nation.

Today The Sun (UK), that shining star of tabloid journalism, reports that Madge is going to get about $25 million for two gigs (one public and one private) in Dubai. Each concert will run some 90 minutes, which, according to our buddy Cody Willard, translates into about $167,000 a minute. Nice.
