Madonna Used Album Leak Criticism To Perfect Her Songs

Madonna is convinced her album leak actually helped her make a better record because she let criticism of the unfinished tracks 'guide' her as she finished off the project.

A suspect was arrested in Israel last month and charged with hacking into the Queen of Pop's computer and leaking songs from her upcoming Rebel Heart album in December.

The hacking prompted Madonna to share a handful of tracks nearly three months before the album's intended March release, but the Music hitmaker admits the incident actually helped her make improvements.

During an interview with U.S. host Ryan Seacrest on the E! Live from the Red Carpet special before the Grammy Awards on Sunday, Madonna said, 'It was an interesting process, because it was kinda like the music came out unready and people commented on it and even though I was p**sed that I got hacked and s**t got leaked I was like, 'Ooh, I better change this'. It actually helped guide me a little bit.'
