Madonna And Her Hairy Armpits Are Back In The Studio

With all the armpit flashing, shower door licking and other weirdness taking place on her Instagram page, it’s easy to forget what Madonna actually does for a living: make music. Lately she’s been acting more like our crazy Aunt Winifred than the Pop Goddess we once worshipped, but that’s another story.

Well, folks, get ready to “throw your hands in the air like you just don’t care,” because the Queen of Pop is planning a comeback. She recently revealed that she’s hard at work on a follow-up to 2012’s MDNA.

In case you forgot (which would be perfectly understandable), MDNA received lukewarm reviews upon its release, suffered an 88 percent sales drop between its first and second weeks, and spawned no memorable singles. It was, hands down, Madge’s most uninspired album to date, which seemed impossible after 2008’s Hard Candy, but she proved everyone wrong. MDNA is currently selling for $5.99 on Amazon, a full dollar less than her half-baked Remixed & Revisited EP from 2003.

(To be totally fair, MDNA did result in one of the highest grossing concerts of all time, but that likely had more to do with Madonna the brand than the album itself.)

Earlier this month, the 55-year-old Kabbalist posted the following photos of herself in the studio with Swedish superstar DJ Avicii to her Instagram page:

We’re excited about this new pairing. Let’s be honest, Madonna has only ever been as good as her collaborators, and this time around she’s picked an especially talented one. We love Avicii’s fresh, country-inspired club sound, and we think it will highlight Madonna’s thin but catchy vocals nicely. (We can’t help but think of her twangy dance track Don’t Tell Me from 2000’s Music, which we loved.) Also, he’s not totally overexposed yet, unlike the majority of her collaborators from the past ten years. (Most notably Timbaland in 2008, or, worse, Nicki Minaj in 2012.)

Now that we know what to expect musically, how about lyric content? Madonna’s go-to topics have historically included the following: sex, having no regrets, music, sex, partying, dancing, sex, being famous, and, occasionally, when she’s feeling particularly vulnerable, heartbreak. Can we expect more of the same this time around?

Yesterday, she posted another picture on Instagram:

The photo is paired with the caption, “Day turns into night. I won’t give up the fight. Don’t want to get to the end of my days……….saying I Wasn’t amazed! #revolutionoflove.” Some have speculated that she’s teasing lyrics to one of her new songs. Time will tell.

No word yet as to when we can expect to hear these new tunes. Though her last few offerings have admittedly turned us into fair weather fans, we’re still holding out hope for one more great Madonna album. We know she has it in her. Here’s hoping it arrives soon. Summer is fast-approaching and we’ll be needing some new jams to blast by the poolside.

    MDNA was great. I hate when people act like their opinions are facts.

    disgusting article, stay pressed

  • jckfmsincty

    Surely, she has plenty of money to retire.

    MDNA was a great album! Sure, the lyrics got a bit dorky in places but that was part of the fun! She seemed like she was just doin’ her thang without a care in the world! Several of the songs are some of her best work IMO. For those that missed out on them, Turn Up the Radio, I’m a Sinner and Love Spent are a great place to start on MDNA. One of my favorite albums of hers for sure.

    Totally agree with those posting in defense of MDNA! Don’t know what went wrong with the marketing, but the album was much better than Hard Candy or American Life. Beginning to end, it’s very good, give or take 1 or 2 tracks at the most. Most likely, this article was written by a “Little Monster”.

    Madonna stopped being good after Ray of Light..lets stop kidding ourselves.

  • Madonnaids

    Who cares about this disease-ridden OLD hag. In the meantime, Lady Gaga is the new Queen of Pop.

    MDNA is one of my favorite albums from her. It has some interesting music within. That said, I accept that not everyone loves her or her music. Still, it is an interesting choice mixing opinion with fact in a piece like this. In the end both become obscure. The catty responses are cute. Oh look, a multimillionaire has haters. How original.

    @Madonnaids: Funny how you call Madonna “old” in bold type, yet it’s your Mama Plagiarist who can’t tour without breaking a hip. Just like Gagme, you have no new material.

    MDNA didn’t deliver like she did in Confessions on a Dancefloor.
