Madonna to Anderson: 'I Like Your Mom'

Added: Jan 31, 2012

Description: When asking Madonna if she reads what critics write about her, Anderson shares advice his mom, Gloria Vanderbilt, which was to never read anything about yourself.

"I like your mom," says Madonna.

She continues "I don't think you should read anything about anybody, to tell you the truth. I think that most things that are written about pop culture these days are not very objective. I think that we should be able to watch, listen and experience art and entertainment with open minds, without people telling us what we should be thinking or feeling, or cluttering our brain with ideas... because then you are going to go in with an expectation and then you can't really experience it the way you should."

The Greatest Show On Earth

Madonna Is 'So Nervous' About Super Bowl Performance

By Aaron Parsley

Tuesday January 31, 2012 08:00 AM EST

Madonna may have had only "4 Minutes" to save the world with Justin Timberlake, but putting on the halftime show on Super Bowl Sunday has her even more wound up.

"Oh my god, I'm so nervous. You have no idea," the superstar told Anderson Cooper in an interview to air on his talk show Thursday.

"First of all, it's the Super Bowl. The Super Bowl is kind of like the holiest of holy in America," Madonna, 53, said. "I'm going to come in halfway between the church experience and I'm going to have to deliver a sermon that's going to have to be very impactful."

She also put it this way: "I have to put on the greatest show on earth in the middle of the greatest show on earth."

Clearly, the timing of the performance is something that concerns the performer. "I have eight minutes to set it up and seven minutes to take it down," she said. "I have 12 minutes to put on the greatest show on earth. Okay, that's a lot of pressure."

Asked for a hint about what she'll be doing in those 12 minutes, Madonna said, "I'll be singing."

Something tells us it will be a bit more than that! Super Bowl 2012 pits the New York Giants vs. the New England Patriots and airs Sunday (6:30 p.m. ET) on NBC.

The Gay Wedding Planner

ANDERSON COOPER was a different kind of host on Saturday evening. A source says the “Anderson Cooper 360” anchor held a birthday party for openly gay party planner Josh Wood, of Josh Wood Productions, in the converted firehouse in Greenwich Village that Cooper bought for $4.3M in 2009. Cooper, “dressed casually in a T-shirt and glasses,” was “really social at the party [and] talked to all of his guests.”

Josh Wood, 22, ladles pasta from a pot at the "Teen Iron Chef Cookoff" at Rouge Tomate on Wednesday afternoon for a panel of celebrity judges including Laura Posada and Cornelia Guest.

Version 2 for 2012's Trends

In the post below you can see Matt's version of the Trends for 2012. Now, see what Anderson and his guest, Jennifer Romolini, said about it yesterday. Who Is The Correct One!?

Trends in 2012, from Yahoo! Shine

Monday, January 30, 2012 -- 8:01 AM

Jennifer Romolini, Editor-in-Chief at Yahoo! Shine, joined the show to talk to Anderson about what's hot and trendy in 2012. From beauty to tech to finances, Jennifer has the inside scoop on what you'll be seeing more of this year.

Money: More Negotiations

Because jobs are still scarce in this economy, Jennifer says that people are trying to get the most out of the jobs they already have, rather than looking for new work. People are inquiring about how they can get a raise. Jennifer encourages that employees evaluate their value and test the waters by asking for a raise when it's appropriate.

Beauty: Cosmetic Eye Color Surgery

Colored contact lenses are out, and cosmetic eye color surgery is in. A $5,000 laser surgery that lasts 20 seconds will remove layers of your eye pigment to reveal the blue pigment underneath, changing eye color to blue.

Dating: Relationship Apps

Online dating is quickly becoming outdated, as relationship apps take hold. The apps allow users to check-in and instantly broadcast where they are, and then meet up with other users in their same vicinity. Rather than browsing online profiles, people will meet who is actually nearby.

Technology: Designer 3D Glasses

We've all had experiences with those big bins of 3D glasses at movie theaters. Jennifer and Anderson discuss how they not only make you look "dorky," but they're also reused and can be filmy, slimy and generally gross. Designer fashion brands are trying to revolutionize the traditional 3D glasses by creating stylish, designer 3D glasses of their own.

Moms: Mom Confessions

"Bad is the new good," Jennifer says. In blogs and comments all over the web, Jennifer says moms are talking to each other about mistakes in their life, whether it's "trial and error" parenting, cooking mishaps, career mistakes or anything else.

What Is "Grindr"?

Watch Anderson Cooper Pretend Not To Know What Grindr Is

“Is that just for hookin' up?” On his daytime talk show today, Anderson Cooper had on an “expert” to discuss “hot new trends for 2012,” including “location-based apps” for “relationships,” which he knows “nothing” about. Suuuure.

I don't know who Matt is licking on his avatar;
but on my version! of course he is licking my Idol!

Of course, by "expert" I mean "random Yahoo! lady," by "hot new trends for 2012" I mean "things we've all been using since 2009," by "location-based apps" I mean "Grindr" and by "relationships" I mean "hookups."

I almost forgot! And lastly, by "nothing" I mean "Oh dear god please don't let me slip up and say anything that would indicate I know what she's talking about I swear I only did it that one time at EBloc because I was bored and Ben told me I should be less uptight so I figured hey why not just download it quickly just to see if there are any guys on it in the bar because that would be a funny story to tell later on but then that one latino twink kept sending me messages and honestly the details aren't really important but long story short I deleted it the next morning and have only downloaded it again like three times since then."

Life coach Mel Robbins is on hand to dole out a four-step plan that can help save your relationship during tough economic times.
