Here's some unseen pictures and facts for you guys..... Back from the 80s: @madonna dated artist Jean-Michel Basquiat from 1982 to ’84, when both were still mere twinkles in the eyes of the art and entertainment scene. Madonna had yet to release her debut album. Gallerist Larry Gagosian remembers Basquiat introducing the singer to him, telling him that his girlfriend was going to be “huge.”
Madonna recalls Basquiat’s uncompromising focus on his art. “I remember getting up in the middle of the night and he wouldn’t be in bed lying next to me; he’d be standing, painting, at four in the morning, this close to the canvas, in a trance. I was blown away by that, that he worked when he felt moved,” she told Interview magazine in 2014.
Basquiat died of a heroin overdose at age 27, a devastating end that Madge still grapples with. “He wouldn’t stop doing heroin. He was an amazing man and deeply talented, I loved him,” Madonna said on the Howard Stern Show in 2015.
She would reportedly sing to him, and he would give her paintings to show his love. When the couple broke it off, he asked for them all back. “When I broke up with him he made me give [the paintings he gave me] back to him,” she mused on Stern. "And then he painted over them black.” LIKE & COMMENT, FOLLOW ME @writtenbyraymildo .

"China’s market volume is huge, but for foreign companies, getting into China has always been a problem🇨🇳.
Whilst working in Shanghai, I find it extremely challenging to bring new ideas and find obstacles to bring creativity because they tend to rely heavily on the successes in the past.
Even if adidas's headquarter in Germany introduce new products, there are cases when China will not introduce the product if it looks different from what is currently trendy.
It's a fallacy to say that the Chinese are not creative. It is my job to untangle this chain. Despite its small population relative to China, Japan is good at leading trends and being innovative. If we can bring Japan's creativity to China, I feel that new business opportunities will unravel💫.
Personally, I still lack experience in Shanghai and have not been able to fully understand the minds of consumers in China. I find it fascinating to hear different ideas and opinions on a product, and I feel that I have a lot to learn to make an impact on this emerging market🏃♂️🏃♂️.
Western luxury money has been focusing their attention on Shanghai from a marketing perspective. The new market of 1.3 billion people - coupled with the meteoric rise of both the size and spending power of its middle class holds enormous potential for manufactures of consumer goods.
These challenges not only pushed me further to use sports as vehicles to market products, but they also provided me the opportunity to explore the realm of marketing in China and the Asia-Pacific🌏." Norifumi
