Nile Rodgers: Madonna knows best

Nile Rodgers advises to always do as Madonna says.

The American hitmaker has worked with music's biggest stars throughout his illustrious career, including Pharrell Williams, Daft Punk and Duran Duran.

However, it is only Madonna's advice that he always blindly listens to.

'Do as Madonna says,' Nile stated to Q magazine as one of his golden rules for life. 'When I did Like a Virgin, I thought Material Girl was the best song to lead with. Madonna was convinced it was Like a Virgin. But I was like, 'Material Girl's ten times better.''

'She taught me that it was about being a girl, losing your virginity, and how relevant a lyric like that would be. Sometimes there's an intellectual component to a record that can trump its primal component.'

While Nile is a star in his own right thanks to his disco funk band Chic, his talents are often called upon by other music stars. Never one to say no, the 62-year-old loves sharing his pearls of wisdom with both budding and established artists.

'Help your fellow musicians. I believe in giving back as much help to musicians as possible. Recording with Daft Punk, we were in the same studio we did the first Chic single. They went, 'How did you make Chic records?' So I taught them the technique. We came up with Get Lucky, then Lose Yourself to Dance and Give Life Back to Music in minutes. All three songs were finished in one day,' he smiled.

I love Nile. He is Right. I hope Madonna and him work together again, not for a sequel but a sexy follow up to Like a Virgin. Something about how to get our virginity back maybe? I will be the first to stand in line then. She is so fine and she is mine, I'll be hers to the end of time wow wow wow ahhhhh oehhhhhhhhh.
