■ Madonna announced she hired 19-year-old singer and social media phenomenon, Pia Mia, as the new face and (first ever) “fashion director” for her exclusive Macy’s juniors line Material Girl.
“Her creativity, confidence and unique sense of style make her a perfect addition to the brand,” Madonna told WWD.
“The fact that Madonna chose me to do this literally makes me die,” she said, admitting to wearing Material Girl since she was 13. “Her confidence really attracted me and she can pull anything off. I take risks with fashion and Madonna always does, so she inspires me in that way. And I love her music like everyone else.”

“You’ve heard me say it many times before, but the coolest part of having this job is that I get to meet incredible artists and heroes of mine and they perform right here in front of me,” Ellen said. “Of all the bands and artists that I’ve had on the show there was no one like Prince.
“He was an artist, he was an icon, a genius, and he was kind enough to appear on my show in the very first season, in 2003, which you have to understand is a big deal because most stars wait to see if a talk show is going to be successful,” she continued. “They wait to see if it’s a cool thing to do before they say yes, so he did it on the first season, and it meant the world to me that he did that.”
