A slideshow accompanying a June 19 New York Times article about the premiere of Madonna’s new concert film now includes a couple of corrections.

The first corresponds to this image of Madonna’s daughter, Lourdes Leon:

An earlier version of this slide missidentifed what Lourdes Leon was wearing. She is wearing a black tank top and pants, not a slinky black dress.

The second, a caption for this image of Salman Rushdie.

An earlier version of this slide misspelled the given name of a guest. it is Salman, not Salmon.
