Another look at Madonna's diary:Oct. 14: The Big Day! Went into labor at 3: 30 this morning, which is when I reached over, gently shook Carlos and said: "Hey, wake the #$%& up! We gotta get to the #$%&* hospital!"Carlos was to be my "coach." But he was a little unclear on the concept, arriving in the birthing room with a whistle, clipboard and cassette player blaring the Notre Dame fight song. Sigh. This is what happens when your baby's father is a 30-year-old personal trainer you picked up in Central Park while jogging.

For the road trip to Madonna, it was 71 degrees with a Windex-blue sky in early fall. This is why God made sun roofs.An out-of-towner can get lost four, five times trying to find this cranny of rural sprawl. Blink and you'll miss Madonna; blink and you'll hit a silo. For company, we turn on the radio and, coincidentally, the first song out of the box is "Live To Tell" by Madonna, the singer:"How would they hear the beating of my heart?. . ."They've heard you, but they don't get you.Madonna (singer)

When he was first elected to the General Assembly in 1974, William J. Madonna Jr. was, in the words of a colleague, "a bright young man.""He is straightforward, and he is going to do a fine job," then-state Sen. Julian L. Lapides, a reform-minded Democrat from Baltimore, told a reporter.Like Lapides, Madonna, now 46, was a member of the Mount Royal Democratic Club. He served in the House of Delegates until 1978, when he went down to lopsided defeat by a candidate backed by a rival political group, the New Democratic Club.

NEW YORK -- Just three batters into last night's game at Yankee Stadium, Hensley Meulens had a terrific diving catch, Jose Canseco had a fit over taunts about Madonna and a fan named Kenny Shabs had a police escort to the parking lot.All on the same play.The trouble started moments after Canseco hit a bullet to Meulens in left. Trotting off the field after the out was recorded, the Oakland A's 230-pound muscleman ran toward the box seats to the right of the Oakland dugout, where Shabs, a 30-year-old telemarketer from Lyndhurst, N.J., had been taking photographs.

Did you know that on her first night in New York City, Madonna slept in an alley with rats crawling on her?Really, it's totally true. It's right there in the Fox docudrama "Madonna: Innocence Lost," starring Terumi Matthews, which airs at 8 tonight on WBFF (Channel 45). And the film is made by the same folks who brought us "Amy Fisher: My Story" and "Honor Thy Father and Mother: The True Story of the Menendez Brothers," two other totally true docudramas. So, like, let's not even question whether this is true, OK?

You can understand the Catholic Church, Pepsi-Cola or other tradition-bound institutions finding Madonna just too hot to handle. But MTV? That hip music video channel that often plays like a Fredericks-of-Hollywood catalog set to music?In the wake of MTV's deciding not to air a new Madonna video -- reportedly because of its steamy scenes of bisexuality, voyeurism and mild sadomasochism -- some observers are crying sexism. The music channel, they say, is reacting against the messenger -- read: a woman -- rather than the message.

OH, WHAT a circus! Oh, what a show! ... we've all gone crazy!" So go the Tim Rice lyrics for one of Evita's rousing songs (music by Andrew Lloyd Webber). Appropriate words as Cannes awaits the arrival of Madonna. The Hard Candy pop empress will join AmfAR's activist deluxe Sharon Stone for Harvey Weinstein's annual Cinema Against AIDS gala tomorrow night. The anticipatory hysteria and nerves around the convergence of the two blondes is so thick you can cut it with a needle full of collagen.

On April 28, Madonna's final album for Warner Records - her home base for 25 years - debuts. The first single, a duet with Justin Timberlake titled "4 Minutes," has rocketed up the Top 40 Countdown meter faster than any song in the chart's 38-year history. It is No. 1 on iTunes. Perhaps most significantly, Ellen DeGeneres shimmies to it every day on her TV show. (Ellen now equals Oprah in shaping cultural cravings. If either of these women says, "Buy it! Love it!" - millions do.) So Madonna's swan song for Warner might be her biggest hit ever.

Almost eight years ago, in her hit "Material Girl," Madonna declared that "the boy with the cold hard cash is always Mr. Right."Yesterday, the suitor was media conglomerate Time Warner Inc., which announced it signed the pop star to a multimedia contract that, according to her manager Freddy DeMann, has worth "dramatically greater" than $60 million.The pact, at its maximum payoff, is the most lucrative ever negotiated by an entertainer, superceding Michael Jackson's reported $50 million signing last year with Sony.
