It’s been a while since I’ve been excited about a celebrity interview, but sign me up for this one! ABC News reporter, Cythia McFadden sitting down with Madonna and it looks like she’s digging for the juicy stuff! With so much on the go, including a brand new album (Titled: “MDNA”), the timing is right for an interview like this.

ABC wanted had viewers tweet what they wanted to ask Madonna with the hashtag #AskMadonna. “Out of all these, there’s one question that blew up the Internet,” says McFadden in the preview below. Madonna looks intrigued. McFadden then slowly reads the question. “They want to know… what you think… about Lady Gaga.” I KNEW that was what she was going to ask.

We don’t know what Madonna actually says back for sure (editing certainly builds the tension). Madonna does say, “Look it up” though, as part of her response. Feisty! Makes it look like it’s worth watching. Check out the preview below!

My Most Anticipated Albums For 2012

In: Music, Tyrell

With the coming of a new year comes a new set of albums from some of our favorite artists. While a few are follow-ups to their debuts, some are continuation of a musical journey we’ve been following for years. This year, it seems that an exceptional amount of albums are coming even before summer hits and I can’t wait to check a majority of them out. However, there are a few that are standing out more than others and I want to share them with you. While some details on certain albums are few and far between, there is some leaked info out there to keep our whistle wet until official announcements are made. Check out what albums I am most looking forward to in 2012 below.

Scissor Sisters

Release Date: TBD, Early 2012
I CANNOT wait for this album. I’ve been hooked on the Scissor Sisters ever since their release of their self-titled album in 2004. Their follow-up album was an adventurous ride and Night Work released back in 2010 house some of my favorite tunes from the group. Fresh off accompanying Gaga on her Monster Ball tour, the group is ready to release some fresh tunes for their fans and I couldn’t be happier. They’ve already sizzled us with Shady Love and I look forward to hearing more this year.

Check out more albums I can’t wait to hear in 2012 below.

Capital Cities Covers Madonna’s “Holiday”

In: Donovan, Music

Given that today is New Year’s Eve and the majority of us will be partying it up til the early morn, this seemed the ideal time to share this pop synth goodness. “Holiday” was Madonna’s first Top 40 hit and began the dawn of Madge’s reign over the pop charts during the decade. Even though the track is almost thirty years old, it’s still as fun as ever and can always get the party started. Why mess with pop perfection, right?

Well, Los Angeles duo Capital Cities decided to take on his monumental task and surprisingly delivered an excellent cover. The synth pop duo’s version manages to give “Holiday” a modern touch without losing the retro fabulousness of the track, all the while giving it their own unique twist. Check out the end of their cover to know what I’m referring to. Definitely a worthy tribute of this classic track. I believe, even Madonna would approve and we all know how picky she is. Hydrangeas, anyone? Check out Capital Cities version below. If you’re interested to hear their other music, head over to iTunes and purchase their debut EP.

Christmas may be over, but I thought I’d still share this festive goodness with you today. Originally intended for “Glee’s” holiday episode a couple of weeks ago, this musical number was unfortunately cut from the final edit. Thankfully, the producers decided to release it online. Speaking of the last episode, how awesome was that black and white portion of the show? Looooooooved it.

Using Madonna’s classic cover of “Santa Baby” as inspiration, Santana (Naya Rivera) definitely channeled her inner Material Girl to deliver a solid performance. It’s very reminiscent of Madonna paying homage to Marilyn Monroe but with a sexy brunette Latina twist.

The clip takes place in a jewelery store where Santana flirts with the sales clerks while trying on some serious bling. Only the expensive ones of course. It’s Santana we’re talking about after all. Gotta admit, McKinley High’s resident lesbian looks smoking hot. Wearing a tight-fitting sweater dress coupled with a pair of slutty wintery boots, this woman is muy caliente. Obviously, she’s trying to use her feminine wiles to score a discount. One of the most interesting parts of the video is who she’s in the store with? Betcha you can’t correctly guess. Find out below to see if you hit the nail on the head.

Super Bowl XLVI is still a couple of months away, but that hasn’t prevented Madonna from rehearsing for the big day. We all know how much of a perfectionist she is, so this shouldn’t come as a surprise. Word has it, Madge started working on her 15-minute halftime show this week. According to fan site, her performance will include a medley of five songs from her discography.

Seeing that her 13th studio album drops next year, one of the tracks will be her lead-off single, “Gimme All Your Luvin’“, previously titled as “Give Me All Your Love”. Expect both Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. who appear on the track, to join Madonna in Indianapolis for Super Bowl XLVI. I can’t wait to see what Minaj is going to wear.

Have any guesses on what the other four songs will be? Being that it’s a sporting event, don’t expect any of her hit ballads, but rather her biggest dance pop hits instead. I have to say the “Material Girl” singer did an excellent job of picking songs to represent different parts of her long career. She has something from her debut album all the way to her upcoming one. See if you can correctly predict the other four tracks before reading ahead.

How I missed this Britney Spears morsel last week is beyond me? On Spears’ 30th birthday, fansite gave Brit’s fans a gift in the form of new music. I should’ve probably air quoted “new” since the track seems more like leftover scraps from a previous studio album rather than new material. Still, if you’re a fervent Spears fan… any new material is music to your ears.

“This is a girl who stays strong through the toughest of times, yet continues to carry on with a positive attitude and inspires millions of people around the world. She is truly my favorite artist and gives me strength and passion for craft. Britney gave me this song ‘Love 2 Love U’ several years ago, and am very happy to be able to share it with fans today. Happy Birthday, Brit. We love ya.” –

Love 2 Love U” is heavily inspired by Madonna’s huge 1987 hit, “La Isla Bonita“. Not only does it sample the beat, but also borrows heavily from the song’s lyrics. Madge’s version was island-inspired, and so is Brit’s. Her take seems to be more Caribbean-infused though. I guess, Brit was listening to a lot Rihanna, Sean Paul and Sean Kingston at the time. Check out the previously unreleased track below.

Madonna Reveals Her “Masterpiece”

In: Music, Tyrell

I cannot wait for Madonna’s new album next year. After we got a taste of Gimme All Your Love, I was hooked and ready for some more Madge. Now, a new song has hit the web and it reminds us all of the American Life days. The song is titled Masterpiece and will be featured in the final credits from her directorial debut, W.E.. The song is about falling in love with someone who is like a work of art. The lyrics sing out:

“If you were the Mona Lisa. you’d be hanging in the Louvre.
Everyone would come to see you, you’d be impossible to move.”

William Orbit produced the down-tempo track which has been confirmed to appear on her upcoming album. I think it’s a nice addition in comparison to what we’ve already heard which makes me think this album will be more eclectic in comparison to her dance heavy confessions and her hodge-podgey Hard Candy. Give a listen to Masterpiece below and tell us what you think.

In the music industry, women are pitted against each other all the time in a game of “she said / she said”. This is partially to do with their ego and partially to do with the tabloids making matters worse. Either way, people seem to love the drama and controversy of it all. I came across a video uploaded a couple days ago by Rich Juzwiak (the arts writer at The Daily and blogger at has put together clips from interviews where one diva has talked trash about another. It’s absolutely amazing. The one rule for the video is that the person speaking in each clip must have been talked about in the preceding clip. It’s interesting to see how they all come together.

One major source of drama was definitely Mariah Carey. Whether it’s the former rivalry between her and Whitney Houston, Madonna, Christina Aguilera, or even Jennifer Lopez, Mimi seemed to be at the center of it all. Another rivalry I forgot about was between Janet Jackson and Madonna. In one of the clips, Janet is asked how her music compares to Madonna’s, and she responds: “It’s dance music, I’ll say that… which is very similar. I think… How do I put this? I think what I do has class to it. I’ll say that.”

The montage even features more current rivalries such as a more media driven, Lady Gaga vs. Christina Aguilera. Enjoy the video below and stay on Mariah’s good side!
