Madonna's Smirnoff Vodka Groove
Forget her age 53, her 24-year-old lover Brahim Zaibat and Madonna's love of club kids.
As the gift that keeps on giving, Madonna has signed on with Smirnoff vodka in a global marketing deal that kicks off with a dance contest supporting Smirnoff's Nightlife Exchange Project. The goal is to get 10 million people across 50 countries to exchange their personal 'nightlife stories' on Facebook. In a grand finale Nov. 12, Smirnoff will throw 50 parties simultaneously around the world.
Madonna is offering a spot on her next tour for one lucky dancer, chosen from hopefuls submitting a 60-second video to Smirnoff’s website before Oct 10. The winner will be chosen at a dance-off among 10 finalists at one Nov. 12 Nightlife Exchange Project parties. via Brand Channel

Family Values Strikes Again
In the aftermath of ABC's 'Pretty Little Liars' star Emily Fields coming out as a lesbian earlier this year, the ultra-conservative Florida Family Association launched a campaign against advertisers on the show.
Calling photos like this one "irresponsible imagery", the FFA described the show as "using salacious and glamorizing scenes portraying young, pretty women as lesbians", saying it "sends the wrong message to these young girls, a message that reinforces and legitimizes this homosexual lifestyle in a manner that could affect these young girls' sexual identity for a lifetime."
Remax pulled their ads almost immediately from the show. E!Online reports that this week General Mills announced that they are pulling their ad support. When asked by AfterEllen.com if GM pulled the ads due to lesbian content, a rep for the company said that was not the reason.
"The decision is entirely based on the relevance of the show's audience for our brands, not because of the sexual orientation of individual characters." the rep told the website.
