  1. Madonna is working on new music.

    Nobody records her voice better than Mirwais. I’m so excited for this. Dont Tell Me could come out now and it would still be ahead of its time...
  2. Madonna’s Instagram

    I must say that I’m very excited for the MDNA Lube when it comes out
  3. I was at this show and as she was indeed late, they have a curfew before the show has to end, she had to cut the show short and end the set quickly. there were a lot of pissed off people that night...

    *books-in for fillers and Botox (bless her) 🤦🏻‍♂️😂
  8. Been listening to Billboard’s album ‘Memories’ and feeling more hyped about what she has in store for us. not only did he produce ‘Ghosttown’, which is arguably the best song from her last album, but his album sounds like a more current Daft Punk, which is always a good thing.
  9. "Hard Candy" is 10 years old In April.

    Animal is still my jam. It should’ve made it onto the album

    So cute. The twins are singing Like A Prayer. Now go into the studio and make some new music please.
  12. Superstar Terror Bride

    MDNA really did have the worst single choices, didn’t it? Superstar as the final (proper) single would’ve been career suicide. The visuals sounded interesting though, but would’ve been more fitting for something like ‘Gang Bang’
  13. Rebel Heart Tour on UK TV

    Better late than never I guess
  14. HUNG UP at Live Earth

    I was lucky enough to be at this gig and she completely SLAYED.
  15. http://www.officialcharts.com/chart-news/20-albums-turning-20-in-2018__21264/ Madonna returned after a few years away from pop as a new mum with a fresh techno sound thanks to UK producer William Orbit and lots of lovely long blond hair, thanks to nature and her hair stylist. We spoke to Orbit about the classic album here. William Orbit reflects on Madonna’s Ray Of Light: “It broke all the rules” The Ray Of Light producer reflects on what is considered by many as Madonna's best and most adventurous album. 17 years ago this month, Madonna released with her seventh studio album Ray Of Light. The record, which was helmed by acclaimed producer William Orbit, received widespread praise upon its release and is considered by many as her best and most adventurous album. “It was a long time ago – can you believe it’s been 17 years?” Orbit told Official Charts. “I played all the guitars on that album, which was one of the first times I really showed that I knew how to get a guitar going. It was great to get behind an amp for once because it’s not something I do all the time.” The album, which was released in March 1998, spent two weeks at Number 1 on the Official Albums Chart and to date has spent 137 weeks in the Top 100 (view its full chart run here). “I’m very proud of my work on that record - I think it still holds up today,” Orbit continued. “It still gets mentioned a lot, which always amazes me, even considering the fact it’s Madonna. I mean, you don’t just knock one of those kinds of albums out every year, do you?” Reflecting on their four and a half months experimenting on sounds together in the studio, the producer said: “I’m not even sure the current environment would allow it now in the pop field. Something has happened to pop music at the moment. Back then, there was no fear. Now, everybody is terrified of doing something different and the music industry is stuck in a rut.” Orbit believes there were “a lot of parallels between Ray Of Light" and the recent Queen Forever album he co-produced, explaining: "I recently watched back some of Queen’s videos, which were very cutting edge at the time, and there’s a definite parallel between what they were doing there and the mindset me and Madonna had when making Ray Of Light. We got in studio, broke all the rules and didn’t really think about the consequences.” 14 years later, the pair reunited on Madonna’s MDNA album. Orbit is credited on six tracks, but the process, he says, was almost the complete opposite to that of Ray Of Light. “All I’ll say is that MDNA was a very, very different process in all respects to that which we’d employed on Ray Of Light – from artistically, to time management, to technical approach. I’ll let you be the judge of the result, but it was a very different beast to Ray Of Light.” Did the experience put him off working on pop music for good? “I wouldn’t mind having the chance to go in and lock out the bean counters for a bit and do something different. Right now it feels like the whole music industry is sitting in a corner and rocking itself into a coma. The pop world has become a bit toxic. "That said, you can’t take the pop out of me. I like risk, and – like with Ray Of Light – when someone wants to make an artistic statement and be bold and experimental, that’s when it’s exciting. That's really what's it's all about."
