Madonna pays tribute to former lover

Feb 18 2013, 9:34am CST | by

Madonna has paid tribute to a former boyfriend following his sudden death.

The 'Hung Up' hitmaker briefly dated Mark Kamins - who passed away after suffering a "massive coronary" attack last Thursday (14.02.13) aged 57 - when, as a DJ and producer, he helped her launch her career when she was an aspiring singer in New York.

Madonna told The Hollywood Reporter: "I'm very sorry to hear about Mark's death.

"I haven't seen him for years but if it weren't for him, I might not have had a singing career. He was the first DJ to play my demos before I had a record deal.

"He believed in me before anyone else did. I owe him a lot. May he Rest in Peace."

Mark, who dated Madonna briefly at the start of her career, passed her demo onto Seymour Stein, boss of Sire Records, who immediately saw her potential and signed her to the label.

The DJ also produced her first single 'Everybody' in 1982.

The exact details of his death are unknown but it is believed he has been struggling with heart problems for some time.

Dustin Diamond Talks Porn, ‘Celebrity Fit Club’ Regrets

The rank of mega-stars who are known simply by one name includes, of course, Madonna, Cher, Beyonce and Bono. Oh, and one more, surely — that man-boy known as Screech. Samuel “Screech” Powers of the 1990s TV show Saved by the Bell has become almost an icon — for gross ineptitude. He was adorkable before there was such a thing. He even had a cat ...

But apparently, Gaga hasn't spent enough time bowing before Her Madgesty's throne recently, because Madonna's latest desperate bid for relevance involv ...

Why Janet Jackson Is a Deserving Gay Icon

Aug 27 2014 7:44pm CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

Why the singer is one of the greatest icons ever?In the echelon of pop divas, few rank higher than Janet Damita Jo Jackson. And as a gay icon, you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone with her multi-platinum track record of LGBT support. Yet, for some reason, when lumping together the great ladies in our iconic pantheon — the Chers, the Madonnas, the Judys, even the Beys — her name is often and conspicuously absent. Meanwhile, what has Streisand done for you lately?Though Ms. Jackson neither confir ...
