Madonna's message to YouTube fans
Events: New York City Hard Candy Party

Madonna won't put out free downloads

Pop superstar Madonna is refusing to copy Radiohead by releasing her next album as a free download - even though she is one of the best-selling artists of all time.
The Material Girl star admires the British rockers and their brave move to release their latest album In Rainbows as a digital download - allowing fans to choose their own price for the record.
But the 49-year-old isn't ready to have the public judge how much they should pay for her music just yet.
She says, 'It is a cool idea but I am not sure if it works exactly. It is like a new world out there and people have to try a lot of things and make mistakes.'
'Some things will work and some things will not, but it is kind of revolutionary and we are in that strange moment - the darkness before the dawn before we really know what is next.'
'I don't know if I want to put my songs out there and ask other people what it is worth, but I am definitely ready to try new things.'
Hard Candy, the singer's 11th studio LP, is slated for worldwide release later this month.
