Madonna is up in arms over an internet leak prematurely exposes a demo of her new song, Give Me All Your Love.
Madonna’s manager, Guy Oseary, confirmed her displeasure by stating Madonna’s was “very upset” regarding the Wednesday leak which has already been downloaded by thousands of fans worldwide.
According to Reuters, the song was expected to be the debut track from Madonna’s upcoming album, her first studio release since leaving Warner Bros to join Live Nation.
“Madonna told me this morning ‘my true fans wouldn’t do this’… whoever is responsible for this leak, we ask that you please stop!”
“I’m very happy with the positive reaction to the demo, but we are very upset with whoever leaked the song!!!!!!!!”
The leak comes on the heels of Madonna’s recent interview with Harpers Bazaar where the former material girl opened up about her tortured youth, aging in the music business and her upcoming film, W.E.
Madonna candidly recalled her experiences with painful, playground taunting by stating;
“The boys in my school would make fun of me. They called me ‘hairy monster.’ You know, things like that.”
She continued by expressing why venturing to gay clubs helped build her confidence during her formidable teenage years.
“Straight men did not find me attractive. I think they were scared of me because I was different.”
Although Madonna’s fans are often in awe of her ability to retain her youthful looks and seemingly endless energy, Madonna explained that she’s grown tired of having her age constantly mentioned in the press.
“I find whenever someone writes anything about me, my age is right after my name. It’s almost like they’re saying, ‘Here she is, but remember she’s this age, so she’s not that relevant anymore.’ Or ‘Let’s punish her by reminding her and everyone else.’
“When you put someone’s age down, you’re limiting them. To have fun, that’s the main issue. To continue to be a provocateur, to do what we perceive as the realm of young people, to provoke, to be rebellious, to start a revolution.”
Madonna has certainly not allowed her age to limit her as the now 53 year old singer is set to make her first directorial debut in the movie, W.E., which is slated for release this December 9th.
W.E is a romantic drama based on the affair between England’s King Edward VIII and American divorcee Wallis Simpson; a topic the singer found to be strangely polarizing during her time spent in London..
“When I brought up the subject of Wallis Simpson to people when I was living in England, I was astounded by the outrage that was provoked by her name. The movie is all about the cult of celebrity. We like to put people on a pedestal, give them one character trait, and if they step outside of that shrine-like area that we blocked out for them, then we will punish them.”
Madonna certainly has her work cut out for her. Juggling the demands of motherhood, music stardom and Hollywood fame can frazzle anyone. However, Madonna is one tough cookie who’s been around for quite some time; and if present ventures prove similar her previous ones, she’s sure to be around for many more to come.
