There goes Madonna, classing up the joint again. To show her support of Malala Yousafzai, the 14-year-old Pakistani girl shot and critically wounded by the Taliban because of her advocacy for girls' education, the Material Girl (a.k.a. Madge, Esther, the Queen of Pop, the Hottest Bod in the AARP) took the opportunity during a recent concert at L.A.'s Staples Center to pull her pants down and reveal a (fake) tattoo of the girl's name inked across the small of her back. Take that, Taliban!

MY FRIEND Walla Dubois, from Tanzania, came to see me. When I visited his country, Walla entertained me at a tribal music festival in his village, and I thought it only fair to reciprocate."

Boston. -- There is no doubt that ''Sex'' can be an educational experience.It was for Madonna. At the very end of the Mylar-covered, spiral-bound, X-rated picture book of the author and her buddies in the buff, Madonna thanks her editor for ''teaching me how to spell.''It's not clear exactly which words she couldn't spell before she started writing the text for this unfamily album. Masochism? Pornography? Or is it possible that she couldn't spell the very same words that I cannot print?Well, whatever.

Once again, sex and controversy is proving to be a potent combination at the cash register.The evidence this time is in the brisk local sales and rentals for Madonna's steamy new "Justify My Love" video, which gained notoriety last month when MTV executives decided it was too hot to handle and banned it from the cable channel.The five-minute video, which retails for $9.98, was officially released at the beginning of the week, although some local outlets have had copies for the last two weeks.

ON AND OFF THE AIR:* So much for sophistication. Madonna's pale shadow of the late Marilyn Monroe seems more attractive to Baltimore movie viewers than the real thing.The material girl's awful 1986 film "Shanghai Surprise" greatly out-polled Monroe's sublime "The Seven Year Itch" (from 1955 with Tom Ewell and directed by Billy Wilder) in this week's renewed summer stunt on WNUV-Channel in which viewers get to choose between two movies.The option is offered for Monday's 8 p.m. movie each week, and voting takes place by calling a telephone number for the movie you want.

Nobody asked me but . . . . Few things are worse than having the aromas and flavors of a warm, brick-oven, wood-fired pizza (with rapini and soppressata) wiped away by a waitress who sprays Windex-type disinfectant on the table next to you while you're still dining. The Super Bowl has come and gone - time to protest the new puppy store in Columbia! Scientists who track these things believe last September's big storms may have drowned much of the region's stink bug population.

I was supposed to review NBC's telecast of the Super Bowl itself. You know, what kind of job did Al Michaels, Cris Collinsworth and Bob Costas do? And I will deliver a short, fast version of that. But you cannot review the Super Bowl without talking about the ads and the halftime show. The ads are a barometer of our culture. And what they said to me is that we have become a truly dumbed-down, crass, trashy and even cruel society -- and somehow proud of it. And if seeing that kind of straight culture talk upsets you, stop reading now, because when I get through the game review and get back to the ads at the end of this piece, you will really be angry.

Regarding your article "Christmas, courtesy of The Walters" (Dec. 16), I say hurray to the U.S. Postal Service for publishing Raphael's "Madonna of the Candlelabra" on one of its 2011 holiday stamps. Now, if we could get that same office to publish an image of the "Seated Ballplayer" from the Walters' collection, it would not only celebrate Opening Day for the Orioles and Ravens, it would also raise awareness of the pre-Columbian history of our hemisphere, where a 3,500-year-old ball game is still being played in Sinaloa, Mexico.

Madonna might perform at M&T Bank Stadium next year, according to an alleged tour itinerary that was posted earlier this week. A spokeswoman for Madonna has dismissed the rumor. If confirmed, it would be the first concert at the stadium since U2's blockbuster show in June.  The singer, whose tours are highly anticipated because she holds the record of the highest-grossing tour by a solo artist, has been widely rumored to go on tour next year. Earlier this month, rumors also surfaced that she might play at the Super Bowl.

Not that I have anything against Socrates. I agree with the wise Greek who said that the unexamined life is not worth living. But he came up with that one-liner before the invention of film and videotape, all the paraphernalia of electronic recording.Now I wonder if it's the over-examined life that isn't worth living. Or the inner life that is suffering from overexposure.This highly un-Socratic notion first occurred to me at ''Eating,'' a kind of docu-drama about female eating disorders in which some L.A. women endlessly obsess about food at a birthday party.
