Madonna Previewing 3 New Songs This Week

In: Music, Patrick

Each week starting tomorrow, Madonna will be previewing songs from her highly anticipated MDNA album. The album is a “dark album,” writes reviewer Matthew Todd of Attitude magazine. “MDNA is a fuck you ­to her marriage, the life that came with it, and partly to herself for losing her identity in a partnership. She’s out to recapture who she is, and she has demons to slay.”

Also in his album review, Todd added, “Overall, this might not have the serious pop intensity of Confessions, it’s not as drastically new or experimental as music critics might like, but it’s fun, f*cked up, dancey and full of drama. It’s what her fans have been waiting for: a wallop enough of an album to put her back up there, at checkmate against Lady Gaga, who, despite her brilliance, doesn’t quite give you songs that are as easy to disco dance to as some of these are. Is Madonna still ‘the Queen’ as Nicki Minaj gabs at one point? On the strength of MDNA, it’s hard to argue against.”

She will release the song previews in 60-second snippets to wet our appetites for more. The new album will be released on March 26. This week, she’ll start with teasing three songs. Find out which ones below.

Amidst all the hype for Madonna‘s upcoming next music video for “Girl Gone Wild“, her upcoming MDNA Album release, and worldwide tour later this year, the Queen of Pop is releasing her 1991 documentary, ‘Truth or Dare‘ on Blu-Ray. Brilliant. As the trailer begins, you hear Madonna narrate:

“People think that being a star is about being fabulous, being in the spotlight, having your picture taken all the time, and having everyone worship and adore you. Being rich, rich, rich…having it all. And you know what? They’re absolutely right.”

It’s so interesting to see her back then and how she’s been able to consistently maintain her star power and evolve with the times. In trailer, you see some of her famous friends backstage that include Warren Beatty, Al Pacino, Sandra Bernhard, Olivia Newton John, and more. Go backstage and under the covers with the icon as Lionsgate debuts Miramax’s Madonna: ‘Truth or Dare’ on Blu-ray Disc April 3, 2012. Watch the trailer below.

The sun is shining and Madonna has just released the lyric video for her second single, “Girl Gone Wild“. Such a great start to the week! If you have a sharp eye for detail you’ll have noticed that it’s seems that the song has gone from “Girls Gone Wild” to the singular version. This is more than likely the result of lawsuit threats from Joe Francis, the creator of the “Girls Gone Wild” video series.

As the song starts off, the lyrics Madonna sings are: “It’s so hypnotic / The way he pulls on me / It’s like the force of gravity | Right up under my feet. / It’s so erotic / This feeling can’t be beat | It’s coursing through my whole body | Feel the heat | I got that burnin’ hot Des-I-Re.”

It’s a definitely a hot track to give your workout a boost and to kick the dance floor into high gear. Give the new song a listen below!

Madonna recently broke records with her Super Bowl performance, with the highest viewership ever and I for one loved it (minus M.I.A. pointless middle finger). Today, I came across a video of a drag queen in Brazil that recreated the Super Bowl performance in front of a live audience and it is simply amazing.

At a club in Brazil called Victoria Haus, drag queen Alexia Twist took on the role of Madonna while the original footage of Madge’s performance played in the background. The lengths they took to replicate the set and costumes is definitely appreciated by the audience as the crowd cheers throughout the show.

The performance is complete with impersonations Nicki Minaj, M.I.A., Cee Lo Green, LMFAO, and several people as part of the ensemble. See for yourself below.

Madge’s manager Guy O’Seary recently tweeted that Madonna would be shooting the music video for “Girls Gone Wild” this week. The video is to be directed by Mert and Marcus, who also photographed the MDNA album and the Interview mag photos. O’Seary added, “I believe this would be their first video shoot… #girlsgonewildvideo.” Excited to see what they come up with!

In case you’ve forgotten what the “Girls Gone Wild” song will sound like, listen to the mini-album teaser below. The megamix starts off with a clip of “Girls Gone Wild” before going into “Gimme All Your Luvin‘” and “Turn Up The Radio“.

In other Madonna news, it’s been reported that her daughter Lourdes will tour with her Mother when she hits the road this fall. “There are risque dancers and some blatantly sexual dance routines – but Madonna is really excited about Lourdes making an appearance,” a source said.

With the Grammy’s coming up tomorrow, it’s only fitting that all week long, people have been compiling their favorite performances from Grammy’s past and People Magazine is no exception. However, it appears that a few performances happening at this weekend’s Grammy’s may raise a few eyebrows and be added to some lists for next year’s posts.

For example, The Beach Boys are ready to make a comeback with an upcoming tour and are kicking it all off at the Grammy’s. Joining them on stage will be Foster The People along with Maroon 5. If you’ve been watching the Grammy’s for the last few years, you’ve noticed that they are all about unlikely collaborations and making them happen on stage.

Another unlikely combo will the Grammy’s tribute to dance music. The performance is set to include David Guetta and Deadmau5 alongside Chris Brown, Lil Wayne and The Foo Fighters. Who ever thought you’d see all of these artists on stage together. Not me, that’s for sure. Check out People’s Top 10 list below.

Madonna’s Record Breaking Week By The Numbers

In: Donovan, Music

At 53-years-old, Madonna is proving she’s still got it. Like they say, numbers don’t lie and Madge certainly put up some pretty impressive numbers this week. No doubt buoyed by her AH-MAZ-ING Super Bowl Halftime performance which broke viewership records. About 117.8 million people watched the Material Girl sing a medley of her hits along with her current single, “Give Me All Your Luvin‘”. Sure, her performance was reminiscent of Kylie Minogue’s recent Les Folies world tour (swap out the Greek imagery for Egyptian ones), but I loved it.

Madonna’s upcoming twelfth studio album is on its way to becoming another huge hit for the singer. “MDNA” pre-orders have propelled the album to the top of iTunes stores in 50 countries, making it the largest one day pre-order of any album in iTunes history. The lead cut from “MDNA” is also making its voice heard. It debuted at No. 13 on Billboard’s Hot 100 Chart. Appreciative of all the fan support, Madonna commented, “Thanks for all the L-U-V!! from around the world.”  See more interesting numerical facts of Madonna’s week below.

If you’re tired of reading about Madonna’s half-time show, M.I.A. flipping the bird or anything Super Bowl-related, then this isn’t the post for you. But if you loved the tracksuits Madge’s breakers were sporting, then you’ve come to the right place. During Madonna’s “Music” segment, her backup dancers wore these wicked white track suits with music note details. They looked familiar but I couldn’t place them until I did some research. The athletic gear were part of Jeremy Scott’s collection for adidas Originals Spring/Summer 2012 line.

Scott has collaborated with adidas for several seasons now, but his most recent is probably his best, IMHO. While it’s still too daring and bold for most consumers, it has a few wearable pieces for those wanting to take a fashion risk but not look like they’re heading to perform a gig. Sporting a cohesive theme for the first time, the pieces have an Americana and musical theme with a flashes of cowboy accents and animal-inspired prints. All and all, if Elvis Presley were kickin’ around today, I can totally see him rockin’ out a few of Scott’s pieces.

“the collection pays tribute to American pop culture and brings a little jungle flavor to the urban scene and dresses the now ubiquitous wings in stars and stripes.”

Check out the adidas Originals by Jeremy Scott Collection’s Spring/Summer 2012 look book featuring Mexican male model Jorge Villarreal below. My personal fave, along with the white music note track suit, is the gold winged tasseled jacket. I can’t think of a place to wear it, but I LOVE it.
