Song lyrics revealed?

UK 'newspaper' The Sun published some leaked lyrics from Madonna's sessions for her new album. They state these songs 'might not make the final album....'

What are your thoughts? Real or not? And who could these songs be about?!

'Heartbreak City'

'Cut me down the middle, f***ed me up a little. You said I was your queen. I tried to give you everything. And now you want your freedom.'

'You got just what you came for, a bit of fame and fortune, and I'm no longer needed.'

'You tore me into pieces, you didn't have no damn reason. I let you in my kingdom, you helped yourself with everything.'

'I curse the day we met. This memory is haunting me. I wish I could forget.'

'Two Steps Behind Me'

'You're a copycat, Where is my royalty? You're a pretty girl, I'll give you that. But stealing my recipe, it's an ugly look.'

'Did you study me hard enough? You're never gonna be, you're just a wannabe me. Like a sister all messed-up, who's gonna help you out? In your fantasy, you can try it all. But you can't be me.'

'You can walk the walk, even talk the talk. But you'll always be two steps behind me.'

'We got drunk in the studio and wrote a super weird song'

Diplo has offered some details on his recent team-up with Madonna.

The DJ and producer was enlisted by the Queen of Pop earlier this year as she worked on new material.

Speaking to Billboard, Diplo said that the duo ended up getting drunk in the recording studio whilst writing.

He said: 'One [song] is super weird. Late one night in the studio we got a little bit drunk and she improvised a little hook and we made a song out of it. I think it’s going to be a breakthrough if she can manage to get everything together and get it out properly.'

Talking meanwhile about another track they wrote together, Diplo said:

'That song is on like version 20. It went from a piano ballad to a 'Turn Down for What'-style song, which I didn’t like. Now it’s somewhere in the middle.'


Madonna clothing, lyrics to hit auction block

Madonna memorabilia including nude photographs of the Queen of Pop will go on sale in November at an auction that will also include some of her most famous outfits and some of her lyrics.

The Marilyn Monroe-inspired gown and jewelry that Madonna donned in her 1984 'Material Girl' music video will also be up for grabs, Beverly Hills-based Julien's Auctions said Tuesday.

Highest bidders will also be able to take home some of the many awards won by Madonna, as well as handwritten notes on concert choreography and working lyrics.

More risque are negatives and prints of nude photographs taken of the diva for Penthouse magazine.

Fans could even snap up Madonna's 1972 junior high school yearbook and signed checks, as well as a document related to her separation from Penn.

Outfits Madonna wore in movies such as 'Evita,' 'A League of Their Own' and 'The Next Best Thing' will also be on offer.

With price estimates ranging from $600 to $40,000, the auction will take place on November 7 and 8 over the course of four sessions.

Kate Moss parties with Madonna

Kate Moss partied with Madonna at her birthday party over the weekend.

The 40-year-old supermodel joined the 'Material Girl' singer in celebrating her 56th birthday at a lavish 1920s-themed celebration in a private villa in Cannes, France, where the pair were pictured cosying up together in revealing flapper outfits.

Madonna posted the photo of herself wearing a beaded black dress next to the iconic model - who was clad in an strappy black gown - on her Instagram account.

She captioned the image: 'Bow down Bitches! #whatitfeelslikeforagirl'

The 'Holiday' singer also shared a shot of partygoers posing in front of giant 'M' and intertwined with pink feather boas, who were clearly enjoying their evening.

Setting the Guinness World Record for The Largest Gathering of People Dressed as Madonna

Saturday August 30, 2014
4 - 8 PM
102 Scaup Walk
Music by DJ Marc Coté
Full Drag is Mandatory

We're attempting a world record! Because of that, we’re asking our guests to register ahead of time so we can get a head count.

Darlings, if it was up to us we’d tell you to just show up and surprise us at the door. We're always glad to see you.

But the Guinness people have rules and one of their rules is that we need at least 250 guests dressed as Madonna or we won’t set the record and everyone will see us fail and that would be confusing and disappointing, like a Guy Ritchie film.

Registration takes only a minute. Are you in? It won't be any fun without you!

With passing of Bacall, all Madonna's 'Vogue' icons have died

The death of famed actress Lauren Bacall on Tuesday, the husky-voiced starlet known for her sultry sensuality, not only meant the loss of a true Hollywood legend, but also the end of a golden era of icons.

As first reported by Slate, all of the 16 Hollywood icons named in singer Madonna's pop song, "Vogue," have now died after the passing of Bacall on Tuesday.

The song, released in March 1990, was inspired by the New York City dance community. Voguing is a stylized dance that evolved from the Harlem ballroom scene in the 1980s.

One section of the song contains only spoken words in which Madonna quickly lists off 16 celebrities that are considered part of the golden era of Hollywood: 'Greta Garbo, and Monroe / Dietrich and DiMaggio / Marlon Brando, Jimmy Dean / On the cover of a magazine / Grace Kelly; Harlow, Jean / Picture of a beauty queen / Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire / Ginger Rogers, dance on air / They had style, they had grace / Rita Hayworth gave good face / Lauren, Katharine, Lana too / Bette Davis, we love you.'

The black and white music video was famous for its unique choreography, an homage to classic Hollywood. The video was directed by David Fincher who went on to direct films such as 'Fight Club,' 'Se7en,' and 'The Social Network.'

At the time of the song's release, some of the stars mentioned had already died, including Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, Jean Harlow and Bette Davis. Now, 24 years after the song's release, Bacall's was the final name on the roster.

The following is a list of the legendary stars in the order they are mentioned in the song:

Greta Garbo, 84 (died April 15, 1990)
Marilyn Monroe, 36 (died August 5, 1962)
Marlene Dietrich, 90 (died May 6, 1992)
Joe DiMaggio, 84 (died March 8, 1999)
Marlon Brando, 80 (died July 1, 2004)
James Dean, 24 (died September 30, 1955)
Grace Kelly, 52 (died September 14, 1982)
Jean Harlow, 26 (died June 7, 1937)
Gene Kelly, 83 (died February 2, 1996)
Fred Astaire, 88 (died June 22, 1987)
Ginger Rogers, 83 (died April 25, 1995)
Rita Hayworth, 68 (died May 14, 1987)
Lauren Bacall, 89 (died August 12, 2014)
Katharine Hepburn, 96 (died June 29, 2003)
Lana Turner, 74 (died June 29, 1995)
Bette Davis, 81 (died October 6, 1989)

Madonna wanted for UK X Factor performance

It would be her X Factor debut, as Madonna is rumoured to be lined up for a live performance on the UK's ITV talent show.

With Simon Cowell returning to the judging panel, alongside Cheryl Cole, it would seem the music mogul is pulling strings for some A-list guests.

Madonna has never appeared on any kind of talent show before, but it seems the queen of pop is set to make her debut this autumn.

A source told The Sun: 'It's looking very hopeful Madonna will perform, possibly in November on one of the live shows. There are a lot of big names releasing music at that time, but she's absolutely the number one name we are trying to secure.'

They added: 'She needs her next album to be a success in the UK and a performance on ITV in front of 12 million people would be the best platform.'

Madonna is reportedly being lined up for the much-coveted live final performance - but she's not alone.

X Factor producers are reportedly sweet-talking Irish rockers U2 and British superstar Adele for the slot.

Madonna and Lady Gaga clash over Berlin Wall show?

Lady Gaga and Madonna are said to have clashed over a performance to mark the fall of the Berlin Wall.

The two pop superstars are both keen to sing at a special event to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the historic collapse which united Germany on November 9.

A source told the Daily Star newspaper: 'Madonna and Gaga are equally desperate for the honour of performing. They both like to think of themselves as very political, and will also have new albums to promote by then.'

The pair have clashed in the past over claims the 'Applause' hitmaker has copied Madonna's image, and it is said the 'Papa Don't Preach' singer is the favourite to perform at the event.

The insider added: 'It could reignite their long-running feud as the date draws nearer because neither are used to being told no. However, it's highly likely organisers would choose the Queen of Pop over Gaga, if push came to shove.'
