UPDATE: Madonna New Album to UMG–As We Said
I told you on November 6th that Madonna’s new album would come from Universal Music Group. http://www.showbiz411.com/2011/11/08/exclusive-madonna-new-album-headed-to-universal. No big deal, Page Six reports it today. I told you it would be with Jimmy Iovine at Interscope. And it is. Madonna is now on the same label as Lady Gaga, who sounds a lot like her. The new album will debut this spring–probably late–and watch for Madonna on “American Idol” since she has as much trouble selling product–CDs or digital downloads — as anyone. Who knows? Maybe she’ll (tor)mentor some kid. Anyway, Madonna had to make a record deal since her famous $120 million Live Nation deal didn’t have a recording component. In February, Madonna will try and combine her terrible “W.E.” movie release with her SuperBowl appearance and a new single called “Masterpiece.” It will be a marketing blitz to kick re-start her music career. Look for a summer/tour fall no doubt. That’s how the real money is generated.
How often do we have to re-start her music career. Granted there are no trail blazers around but there comes the time when IT is over. I don’t know what the woman is supposed to do with the rest of her life but to watch her spread her legs and torment the audience with her thinning voice is more than my patience can bear. She was role model once-a woman who controlled her life and her money, I remember how I admired her, now, I find it embarrassing.
