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.

Leonard Cohen is not a man for manifestos. Peripatetic bohemian, Montreal native, Zen meditator, diaspora Jew: Rock's almost-octogenarian philosopher emeritus inhabits identities that are multiple, contested, and resistant to orthodoxy. He is, however, willing to lay some things on the line. "I'm slowing down the tune, I never liked it fast," he intones over a burlesque blues line in the first track on his 13th studio ...

Notes on the London fashions.Louise Gray’s influence was well communicated in Lulu & Co’s Spring Summer 15 collection. Noted as Kennedy (Lulu, of Fashion East, whom founded the label)’s Creative Consultant, her aesthetic shone through via foil textures, sequin details and colourful (almost scientific esc) prints; fantastic tinsel covered hoops sealed the deal.

Is Mariah Carey seeking a boytoy?

Sep 12 2014 3:34pm CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon broke up, and for once, there was nothing Mariah could do to save her marriage and avoid divorce. Trust me, her ego didn't take kindly to that fact, and she's struggling immensely with the end of her relationship with Nick.Contrary to popular opinion, it was neither her ego nor her diva antics that were the catalyst for their divorce (although I'm sure they played their part). According to our sources, it was mostly Nick's affairs with ot ...
