  1. Madonna's "method," so to speak, seems to be writing songs with 1 or more collaborators before booking actual studio time. She has admitted that she is quite frugal with time in the studio (as it is very expensive to waste it) and she enjoys being prepared when she enters one to record. I suspect the writing has been going on since September when she first announced she'd be working on new music. Of course there are exceptions: With many Rebel Heart collaborators, it would appear they wrote the demos and recorded them during the same week (all in the studio). I am sticking with September-November release. Her odds of a #1 album are probably better in Q1 of 2019, but at this point, who cares about that anymore?
  2. Hmmmm...I tried watching her response and was so annoyed within minutes, I had to stop. On the one hand, she's obviously a very naive young woman. The older I get, the harder it is for me to completely blame these kids who grew up in such a shitty age of technological transition - however - this is life, babe. School of hard knocks. You live and you learn. You can't expect fame (even in this global piss pot called social media) to be roses all the time. Maybe you need a little bloody nose to feel some humility. Obviously, that isn't the lesson she took from this and thus her life will continue to be a major disappointment to her. And the fact that she starts this video with "I never, ever, feed into drama..." is laughable. Bitch, you don't even know who you are. This has to be one of the most overly dramatic reactions I've ever seen. If she was talking about Syrian refugees dying, it would warrant this level of emotion and disgusted. Your email got released and trolled. You're still sitting in your comfy bedroom with electricity and soft pink clothing. Give it a rest, you idiot.
  3. I am wondering if that might be one of the reasons he was invited back? He was pretty discreet through that whole RH recording process. We didn't even know he was a producer until an actual press release for the album came out in mid-December 2014. Anyway, stoked for sure. "Ghosttown" was sheer pop brilliance. If Starrah is as versatile as many have claimed, this could really be something amazing.
  4. Listening to the Starrah reel made me laugh out loud. Those all sound the same like the washed out electro-hiphop-pop which has plagued this entire decade thus far. HOWEVER...I never underestimate M. Ever. She has pulled pop brilliance from mega producers and songwriters just as easily as from unknowns. I am not harboring ill thoughts until I hear the final product. Even Madonna's worst is miles higher than today's "pop star" drool.
  5. Madonna Instagram Thread

    I agree. She told Le Parisien in September that she was just at the beginning of the process. She typically takes about a year (give or take) from the first songwriting to the actual release. And that works perfect...she turns 60, drops an album, promotes through the holidays and kicks off a tour.
  6. I miss this era in the sense that I was actually excited she was collaborating with Timbaland and Pharrell. I know they'd been around awhile but it was nice she was trying big name producers for once (and revisiting hiphop for the first time since 1994), if not for anything than just to see what their musical cooking came up with. I don't even know any current producers I could recommend. That's how inspiring the current music scene is. Oye.
  7. I think he's talented and I like the work he did with Madonna (although far and away it's not even close to her greatest moments). But the fact that his musical catalog is basically safe, adult contemporary fare, is it really surprising that he thinks winning a Grammy is a symbol of greatness? A Grammy just symbolizes the industry likes you at that moment. Nothing else, really. So I think his portfolio is representative of someone who composes for mass acceptance. Not to change societal structures, challenge norms, or rise above the musical monuments of the past.

    I love it. Lola "I Don't Give a Fuck" Ciccone-Leon.
  9. Madonna's natal Saturn is in Sagittarius. She experienced her second return within the last 2-3 years. It's over now. If you believe in that stuff, you could argue it manifested with the Rocco stuff as well as disappointment around Rebel Heart (the cape choking, virtually no hit singles, having to ride a tricycle in Australia, etc.)
  10. Roy Moore LOSES Alabama Senator race!

    This is a political era like none other. Welp, let's give Alabama some credit. They came through...barely.
  11. Roy Moore LOSES Alabama Senator race!

    Parts of this country truly disgust me. I will be impressed (and surprised) if Jones pulls it off, but we're talking about Alabama here. And in the era of Trump, the sewage is rising to the top. I'm not going to say "America sucks" because many places are still progressive and we'll be back in power at some point, but man, the idiots are really having a moment in the sun.
  12. I completely agree. So many things on this release were in perfect alignment. I hope we get more eras like this. I never want Madonna to end. I want her to keep putting out material like this on my death bed.
  13. Oooh, I love these suggestions, everyone. I'm down with these too: Rescue Me Rain Angel Crazy For You How High (I still can't let this one go from 2005)
