[Video] Madonna surprise kisses Drake on-stage, says we still live in a sexist society

“I’m 56 years old, and people don’t think I have the right to continue to be successful, to be sexual, to have fun.” – Madonna in Cosmopolitan, May 2015

Madonna showed off plenty of success, sex appeal and fun when she surprised Drake with a Spiderman-reminiscent kiss at Coachella, leaving him spellbound on stage. M’s sneak-attack came right on the heels of an edgy new photoshoot and interview with Cosmopolitan for the magazine’s 50th anniversary.

madonna-cosmopolitan-magazine 

Remember her majesty on Cosmo’s 25th anniversary cover? Barely see an age difference? Same here.

On sexism: “…No man ever gets criticized for his behavior because of his age. It’s only women. So for me, the fight has never ended.”

On feminism: “I think humanist is a better idea. I don’t like the idea of segregating. Human beings all need to be treated with dignity and honor and respect.”

On her “type”: “I’m attracted to people who are creative, but I don’t have a dating manifesto.”

On working with Kayne on the new album: “It’s a little bit of a bullfight, but we take turns.”

Guest Curator Neil Binkley: the best photography & design in Next Issue now

Next Issue says: Hope you enjoy Neil’s unique insights on photojournalism, cover design, and ads!

Ready to be the next Guest Curator? Shoot us an email.

Guest-Curator-neil-binkley

Hi, I’m Neil Binkley. As a Photography Consultant and Designer, I’m constantly immersed in the world of magazines.

The consultant side of me helps commercial photographers (the ones who shoot for Rolling Stone, TIME, and pretty much every magazine in Next Issue) curate their portfolios. My designer side is what compelled me to start BINKLEY+, a creative collaboration with artists of all stripes.

I’ve always loved magazines, and Next Issue is like the key to the candy store. I’m endlessly curious about travel ideas, interior design, politics, cooking, plus a good story like what you’d find inside The New Yorker. Magazines also provide me a ton of research material on everything from layouts to typography to color combinations.

I used to go to the big bookstores and pore over magazine covers, leaving with a few issues each time. Now, Next Issue allows me to consume everything imaginable—without the added cost and waste. One other, major advantage: all of the cool digital features like links to websites, video and animation, and sharing articles easily with friends and colleagues. WIRED’s iPad edition is one of my all-time favorites!

These are the themes I chose to curate below. Happy Reading!

The Nonstop Photo Festival:

Next Issue is like a non-stop photo festival, showcasing the work of the world’s best photographers. Aside from the obvious, great photojournalistic work in National Geographic, other magazines known for having excellent photography include Vogue, WIRED, Dwell, ESPN, Bon Appétit, New York Magazine, and more.

I Heart Magazine Covers:

Sometimes you can judge a book by its cover, especially when it’s a magazine. I love magazine covers so much that I created a Pinterest board for them 3 yrs. ago.  They say something about the sophistication of their inside pages, and they have to do it so quickly while competing for shelf space. I tend to like ones that focus on big, bold images and not too much text.

There’s Beauty in Advertising:

Yeah, I said it. Some ads are actually artistic, employing great craft and creativity. Their creators often went to art school to be painters, illustrators and photographers. So why can’t their work sometimes be inspiring in ads, too?

I Heart Magazine Covers

Cover Story: Almost Niño

Surfer

I admit to being a total wannabe surfer. I tried once and found it insanely difficult. But the freedom of the sport is so appealing, and this cover (shot in Mavericks, the Cali surf spot which inspired the Apple OS of the same name) is both beautiful and terrifying at the same time. I like the gold font, too.

Cover Story: Us & Them

Esquire

Esquire’s current issue includes both the funny and the naked on their cover. So, that pretty much covers everything. Plus, I think Nick Offerman is a talented actor and comedian. Great, clean design.

Cover Story: Cycladic Ideal

Condé Nast Traveler

Why wouldn’t you want to just jump into this cover and start your vacation now? Condé Nast Traveler has always included elegant travel photography, and this destination in Greece looks pretty enticing.

Cover Story: Anne Dorval, Super Mommy

Chatelaine (French)

That’s right, it’s the “Mai” cover of this magazine for French speakers/readers. My high school French will only get me through the page numbers, but I loved this cover for it’s bold background color and striped subject. I also think it’s great that I can dip into Canadian culture, plus bone up on mon français. This woman is a proud Quebecois and film star, Anne Dorval.

There is Beauty in Advertising

Ad for Canada / Newfoundland Labrador / Air Canada

Travel + Leisure

“Inspiring boxes of crayons since 1497″. Get it, ’cause the buildings are so colorful? I love all the history and a travel aesthetic tied into one clever ad, and good copywriting for ads is an art in and of itself.

Ad for NARS Cosmetics

W Magazine

Tilda Swinton makes everything more dramatic, including this ad for NARS cosmetics—shot in a somewhat classic Dutch painter school of soft light.

Ad for Adidas

ESPN The Magazine

Sneaker ads have been cool to me ever since Nike took over the game. Adidas does nicely too, and this ad has some great color and 3D graphic fantasy elements to it. Extra credit for the crazy hashtag .

Ad for Brown Jordan

Architectural Digest

This ad for furniture designer Brown Jordan is a lighthearted view of outdoor chairs, showcasing them in all their colorful glory. Love the whimsy in this photo.
