On September 22 2017, Madonna released a hilarious video to promote the MDNA skincare line (released at Barney’s in the USA on Tuesday September 26). In the video, directed by David Sabshon (filmed on July 25), Madonna was joined by Instagram starJosh Ostrovsky (commonly known as The Fat Jewish).
Here’s part of the hilarious dialog between the two:
“You know what I think, Josh? Pampering is the key to youth. I spray my face with Rose Mist spray, and I feel like I’m walking through a garden”
Fat Jew responds: “People ask my all the time, why do you look so glowing? Like you’re pregnant. And I say it’s because I mist myself with Rosé all day long.”
When Madonna asks if she can try the Rosé, “Will it send me down a spiral of shame?”
“You’re gonna make some really questionable decisions,” Fat Jew says.
“I’ve been doing that for 33 years,” Madonna points out.

On April 7 2005, a new Versace campaign featuring Madonna appeared in Belgian Marie Claire.
Donatella Versace describes the campaign:
“When thinking of Madonna, you won’t picture an average business woman. But that’s exactly how she was photographed by Mario Testino for the latest campaign. Talking on the phone in her fancy office, Madonna shows off the summer collection.
She’s an icon, a chameleon, a trendsetter, and she’s the best in her profession. It doesn’t matter how old you are, everybody wants to identify himself with Madonna.”
