The Material Girl living in a material world. Material as in schmatta.

Ever since Madonna jumped into the schmatta business, it has been a head-scratcher. Why the lame move from musical icon to tween celebrity-turned-fashion-designer extraordinaire? Sure, she’s made some cute moves like hiring Taylor Momsen, the Gossip Girl cast-off as the original face of the label, Material Girl. But overall, Madonna & Schmatta was just an odd lot job lot. The news that LA Triumph, a garmento company in California, is suing Madonna, claiming the rights to the name Material Girl is really annoying. Sure, the tween Macy’s fest is somewhat beneath my Material Girl but Madonna is and will always… Read More »

Y’all know my opinion on celebrity designers. And y’all know that at no time soon, even if I was a tween, would I be caught dead wearing Madonna & Lola’s Material Girl, or Kim Kardashian for Bebe or Lindsay Lohan 6126 or Katy Perry’s upcoming California Girl presented by Steve Madden, or Selena Gomez’s Dream Out Loud or Miley Cyrus for Max Azria for Wal-Mart.

I am sure she was just thrilled to have to placate 350 screaming kids, all of whom had to purchase… Read More »

Oh Madonna, Madonna, Madonna. Madge, Madge, Madge. You are making me all fatootzed (confused in Yiddish). I am soooo not feeling the Material Girl–brought to you by Macy’s–thing at all. I know, through Kabbalah, you are like officially Jewish now. But that does not mean you have to automatically go into the schmatta business. And does Lourdes need to have a career at thirteen years of age? What’s wrong with a Bat-Mitzvah at Leonard’s of Great Neck and some dance classes? I know, you are a great mother. But I am not so sure that you are a real Jewish… Read More »
