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.

Regina! When a song called “Baby Love” came out in 1986, my ears immediately told me it was a Madonna song, because it sounded like a Madonna song and her voice sort of sounded like Madonna’s voice. We didn’t have MTV or anything like that back then so a lot of the time I never […] ...

Ariana Grande Started Questioning Catholicism After Brother Came Out as Gay

Oct 23 2014 1:41pm CDT | Source: 92.3 NOW

Ariana Grande and Madonna at least have one thing in common: their disdain for the Catholic Church. When the Catholic-raised Grande was growing up, Frankie, her older brother by 10 years, came out as gay — and the church was not supportive about it. That’s when she  says she started questioning Catholicism. “When my brother was told that God didn’t love him I was like, ‘OK, that’s not cool,’” Grande said in an interview with The Independent. “They were building a Kabbalah center in Flori ...
