All Hail Her Madge-esty!

graphic of a question mark How did Madonna get the nickname "Madge"? --Melissa

MadonnaMelissa, lots of people have to be wondering the same thing. "Madge" is a name the UK press gave to Madonna, a shortened combo version of "Her Majesty" and "Madonna." No one in her professional or personal life refers to her by that name ... we're guessing it didn't stick, or she just doesn't care for it!

For more Madonna, don't miss this.

--Sarah

Brad RenfroSarah, former child star Brad Renfro is not married, nor is he engaged at this particular moment. So keep your fingers crossed -- maybe you'll find your paths crossing!

Renfro was last seen in "10th & Wolf," a mob movie based on the life of a kid who returns from the military and gets caught up in his old ways. Brad has had some bad luck in real life, but seems to be steering clear of trouble now. Way to go, Brad.

For some hook-ups that have happened (and one we can't believe our eyes about), you have to check this out!

graphic of a question mark Is Matchbox Twenty done? --Kiki

Matchbox TwentyKiki, Matchbox Twenty has been on hiatus to allow band members a chance to pursue solo careers, but no, they're not done. Frontman Rob Thomas took advantage of the opportunity and released his first solo album, "Something to Be," and toured with Jewel this past summer. Kyle Cook hooked up with high school bandmates to create The New Left, which has seen some success.

Take a look at their site to see how they've been doing!

graphic of a question mark Where has Jessica Alba been lately? --Jody

Jessica AlbaJody, Jessica Alba has been suuuper busy working on a slew of films scheduled for the next two years! She's working on "Sin City 2," as well as "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer," along with co-star Julian McMahon.

Alba and loverboy Cash Warren are still going strong -- they were recently seen spending a lazy afternoon at a Tinseltown restaurant.

For all things Alba, don't miss out on this.

graphic of a question mark Where is Zack Morris??? --Heather

Mark-Paul Gosselaar aka Zack MorrisHeather, we could all go for a little Zack Morris in our lives! Mark-Paul Gosselaar is between gigs right now. But fear not -- he's being presented with lots of options and is weighing them carefully. Since his stint on "Commander in Chief," he appeared in the thriller, "The House Next Door," a TV movie that aired on Lifetime just in time for Halloween. Keep your eyes open for this guy ... if we learned anything from his time on "Saved by the Bell," it's not to underestimate him!

How About Calling Madonna this?

Used-Up Skank Bag and Narcissistic Low-Talent Superficial Malawian Black Baby Accessorizer Obsessed With Being Relevant Long After She's Become Like Someone's Uneducated Trailer Park Granny Who Still Wears Hot Pants and Hits on People of Inappropriate Age.

That's sorta better than plain ol' "Madge." Get's right to the heart of Madonna, too.

Just a thought.

Madonna is a low life pig who I'm surprised doesn't have AIDS.
Keep trying to get the media attention sweetie. You are so over.

you have to admire how a no talent skank was able to build that career.
BUT, its really easy to root against her when you see that pruneface interviewed.
she really is affected, thinks she's brilliant and puts on that fake stupid british accent, won't let her kids watch tv, her politics and religion, writes her stupid kids books etc etc.

liked her better when rodman was banging her

Madonna forever!!! Also, for being a skank used up so over pop star lets see who blows up the rating scan with her concert tonight you pieces of shite. If you don't like her stop making her relevant by commenting on her. You constantly talking about "Her Madgesty" only means she's still important and wether or not you buy her music I can assure you other people are not to mention watching her shows which being the highest paid singer lets you know that!!! So, shutup, we're tired of hearing your silly little insults

What an overblown Egotist . I would rather watch OJs' special than this English tarts NBC crap. Her skin is so mashed potatoes from sun, drugs and sperm that she is a designated " English woman" . She has to steal a kid from Africa so she gets the press time . She is starting to look like an older version of an Olson twin ... and most of all her MUzic sucks Dennis Rodmans' Oxygen pump . Dickhead .

All of you MADGESTY Madonna haters are completely wrong. FACT! Madonna is the QUEEN and you are just mere peasants. Bow to your QUEEN! Madonna is the most talented and successful female artist EVER! It kills you all to see here continue to thrive while you continue to rot in your bitter inadequate existence. Madonna for president! MadonnaNation loves you Madonna!!!

TMZ your explanation for "Madge" is all wrong. It's the nickname Guy Ritchie gave his wife. She even has clothes with the name on them. In a pic taken while on location shooting the movie "Swept Away" some years ago, Madonna is wearing a suede tracksuit with the name on it. The name literally stuck, right to her clothes. So she must like it.
