What is Going on With the Wall Street Journal and Madonna (off-topic)

This morning, in a post at the WSJ's MarketBeat blog we saw "Reading: On Hong Kong and Madonna". Okay, possibly industry shaking development. Unaware that we may have had a pointer to a cult at the heart of the DJ & Co. blog empire, we go blithely about our business.

Then this is brought to our attention, at the WSJ's Deal Journal "Live Nation’s Breathless Madonna Deal". Hmmm.

At 1:30 p.m. EDT the extent of the Madonna madness begins to crystalize with a third post, "Madonna Deal: Like a Prayer?"

Fearing that I was projecting some suppressed Kabbalistic fetish of my own, I checked the Energy Roundup. Praise be to YHWH. It's not me. Two posts from the LiveEarth era, "Gore-a-Palooza" and "...Big Concerts, Small Impact?" turn up with Madonna refs.
What's going on?

A Google search reveals this cryptic clue at the Huffington Post:
...O.J. Simpson briefly steps on the stage -- only to be abruptly yanked off again by Rupert Murdoch. Madonna and Barbra Streisand come out and do a brief duet rendition of their new song, "George W. Bush is the Anti-Christ" -- and then the stage falls mercifully silent.

Who would know the secret?
