For anyone who hasn't seen it yet, here is a look at Madonna's "creepy" new video for "Give Me All your Luvin".
Creepy for a number of reasons; Madonna was born in 1958 and appears in the video as though she was born in 1988 (she looks roughly to be the same age if not younger than M.I.A and Nicki Minaj), bizarre scenes of Madonna faux breast-feeding a doll, sailor-moon styled all dancing, all pashing, all drinking cheerleading clones. There is plenty of other stuff going on, however the listed are the apects of the video that may induce nightmares in some viewers as they try to sleep at night.
The video, not surprisingly, has already had over 6 million views on Youtube and is yet another example of Madonna's genius for self promotion.

New Order have added second shows in Manchester and London to their April UK tour.
The band will play two hometown shows at Manchester's O2 Apollo on April 26 and 27, two shows at London's O2 Academy Brixton on May 2 and 3, and gigs in Birmingham and Glasgow on the tour.
New Order, who are also set to play a series of European festivals during this summer, announced in late 2011 that they had reformed, but that founding member and bass player Peter Hook would not be part of their line-up.
Instead keyboard player Gillian Gilbert, who hadn't performed with the band for over 10 years, rejoined and bass duties were taken up by Tom Chapman, who was part of frontman Bernard Sumner's recent project Bad Lieutenant.
The tour is the band's first in the UK for over five years.

O2 Apollo Manchester (April 26, 27)
