MADONNA WINS LAWSUIT AGAINST TABLOID THAT LEAKED HER ADOPTION DETAILS
A lawyer for Madonna says the star and her twin daughters have accepted damages from the publisher of the Mail Online website over an article that was a “serious invasion of privacy.” Madonna sued Associated Newspapers over a January story that gave details of her adoption of the twins from Malawi. Jenny Afia, Madonna’s lawyer, told a judge in London that the story, which was published while the adoption was underway, could have “threatened the integrity and/or outcome of the adoption process which would have had potentially life-changing implications for the girls.” She said the publisher had agreed to pay Madonna’s legal costs and undisclosed damages. Afia said Madonna would donate the damages to a pediatric hospital in Malawi.

KESHA RECREATES HOME MOVIES IN ‘LEARN TO LET GO’ VIDEO
Kesha relives childhood memories in the new video for “Learn to Let Go,” a song she co-wrote with her mother Pebe Sebert. The singer incorporates actual home movie footage of herself when she was little, including shots of her dancing with abandon, singing into a toy microphone, sitting poolside with her family, and jumping on a bed. As those scenes flash on the screen, Kesha finds herself encountering scenes in her adult world that mimic the home videos. “It’s this idea of reconnecting to my child-like self because that’s when you are so full of wonder and joy,” Kesha explains in an essay for the Huffington Post. She also explains the song’s title, writing, “It’s become one of my mantras over the last few years. As much as our past creates who we are, we can’t let it define us or hold us back.” “Learn to Let Go” appears on Kesha’s new album, Rainbow, due out August 11th.
