Madonna teases Messiah

By | Published on Thursday 3 July 2014


Madonna is up to her old (but oddly young-looking) tricks again; hashtagging this and that meaningless phrase, and spreading a million weird hints/red herrings to hide her tracks. Literally. Or not. I really don’t know what Madonna’s game is.

Whatever her game might be, it may or may not involve a thing that’s “coming soon” entitled ‘Messiah’, seen here as the header to a piece of sheet music with some notes on it. Notes you can hear being played here on a load of violins! It’s a song, perhaps.

Madonna’s game might also involve a collaboration/collaborations, possibly in the form of a track titled ‘Bitch, I’m Madonna’, with Diplo, who has confirmed (as we already knew) that he and Madge spent time writing together recently.

Speaking to Mexican site Helisa Tolipan on his and Big M’s working relationship, Diplo said: “I met Madonna because of her kids and then she invited me to a party. We ended up writing seven songs together. I do not usually feel pressured to write hits, but when it’s an artist of this calibre, it’s obvious that I want to push the boundaries a little bit further and surpass myself. One of the songs we wrote is very cool and is called ‘Bitch, I’m Madonna'”.

So there you go. One last thing. Disclosure will definitely not be on Madonna’s new mystery LP, despite her posting a pic online of herself and them together at the Governors Ball in New York last month. Which, as these things tend to do, stirred up a whirlwind of gossip that the Disclosure boys were ‘doing’ her new record. Well, they’re not.

This is Disclosure’s Howard Lawrence with the real story (via Billboard): “She came to our gig at Governors Ball, and within a few hours, there were articles being written about how we were producing her album – and we had [only just] met her that day. How could we even have done that?”

Exactly, it’s impossible. The end.
