In The Press: Shock Value
M Illustrated"The beautiful part of where we were - we had shock value. But what came with shock value was hit after hit after hit. Madonna was outrageous - but she had a catalogue of music that was unbelievable."

Lionel Richie, talking to the Evening Standard, questioning the longevity of new popular acts and comparing them with those from the 80s and the 90s who had "nothing but the most fabulous catalogue".

"At the end of all the theatrics with Michael (Jackson), he had nothing but the most fabulous catalogue. Now, we’ve got a lot of theatrics - but where's the song that is going to stick around forever?"

"Twenty years from now, let's take anybody - where's the body of work? I’m going to judge you not by your popularity but by your longevity, your staying records. I'm thinking about Miley, Justin Bieber."

What it feels like for... Guy Sigsworth
Live from the UKMusicRadar.com discusses with British composer, producer and songwriter Guy Sigsworth the art of the pop collaboration,and what it feels like working with Madonna.

How did you approach working with someone the stature of Madonna when you collaborated on What It Feels Like for a Girl?

"That song was quite an unusual situation. I sent Madonna a backing track, which already had the spoken word bit in and then she wrote a vocal to it. At the start of our meeting together she sang me her guide vocal, which I thought was great. There was just one thing, in that it worked perfectly against the chorus but it was a little odd against the verse.

"Madonna said she wanted the music adjusted to better fit her melody so I moved a bar to bring it in line with the verse and she said she thought was too simple. She wanted to use the sounds that were already there so there was no question of overdubbing things so what I did was to create the arrangement by basically just chopping up and re-positioning sounds that were already in the mix in different positions around her vocal to create the verse.

"That was a wonderful challenge because I stuck with what I'd brought on the demo, obviously Spike (*co-producer Mark 'Spike' Stent) made sure it sounded even better but we never went into opening up a load of new synths or samplers to find new sounds. It was just 'where do we place the sounds we have to make the verse work?' It was a problem but in a way it was brilliant in the way she imposed a restriction on it that made us be more creative."

"It's nice to be able to play a chord or a melody idea even when you're not routed into the DAW"

So, restrictions aren't always a bad thing in production?

"Exactly. I'm not a minimalist but some of my best productions are ones where I had some kind of idea in mind of what it was going to be like right from the start, or at least very early on. I'm not claiming that I heard every hi-hat of a final mix but it's like there was a particular vision that I was working towards. Those productions tend to come out better than the ones where I'm just trying things out to see what works. Maybe that's because there's such infinity of possibilities these days that you can drown in it.

"I did a track where I'd only use sounds that had come off a piano even though it wasn't just chords; knocking the piano to create a bass-drum and other noises generated from the piano. That wasn't just to be arty and it was interesting as it gave it a character it wouldn't have had it we'd just thrown everything we had at it."

Quotes on Madonna: Madonna track sounds wicked, says MNEK
New AlbumBritish singer-songwriterMNEK, who has been in the studio with the Madonna to work on a track for her forthcoming new album, has described her new material as "wicked".

"I almost get quite scared talking about it," MNEK told DigitalSpy at the launch of the MOBO Awards 2014, where he is nominated for Best Newcomer.

"It's happened, obviously. I did meet Madonna and I did work with her. It was great and amazing. The song sounds wicked - I'm really proud of it. Diplo's dope, Madonna's dope, her people are great and that side of things is working out great."

Diplo first mentioned his work in the studio with MNEK on the Madonna album in his Billboard interview - click here to read it again.

Madonna adds DJ Dahi and Blood Diamonds to collaborators list
New AlbumFrom Billboard.com:

The list of possible collaborators for Madonna’s next album continues to grow as she posted an Instagram photo on Saturday of DJ Dahi and Blood Diamonds working behind a computer, with the caption, “Nothing can stop the Sex Boyzzzzzz!”

DJ Dahi is the producer behind Drake's "Worst Behavior," and has worked with other artists like Kendrick Lamar and Lily Allen.

Pop act Blood Diamonds (aka Mike Diamond) is a frequent collaborator with Grimes.

Madonna has also been working with super-producer Diplo, who has turned up in multiple photos on her Instagram account. In his Billboard magazine cover feature, Diplo said that he's had multiple studio sessions with Madonna that have resulted in at least three "amazing, smashes."

Based on a glance at Madonna’s Instagram feed, the set may also feature collaborations with Toby Gad, MoZella, S1, Ariel Rechtshaid, Avicii, Natalia Kills and Martin Kierszenbaum.

Quotes on Madonna: Street-smart Madonna
Madonna"Madonna is very crafty. She’s street-smart. The video directors who did the best work with her - romantic, amazing stuff like what Jean-Baptiste Mondino did - were the ones she allowed to take risks and the ones who made videos she would throw herself into."

Director David Fincher - the man behind what we can easily consider among the best Madonna videos of all times, in an interview by Stephen Rebello on Playboy magazine.

"I made commercials to make money, but I did music videos as a kind of film school. I learned that the way to be with Madonna was to follow her impetus, because the artist in a music video is not only the star but also the studio. I could say to Madonna, “I need you to do it again. I need you to stop blinking. I need you to get your fucking chin down. And I need you to be better.” Whether it was Madonna, Brad Pitt or Ben Affleck, I’m well aware that the work got financed because of them. But they needed to know I had to get them off their mark, get them to a place where it might get warm, because there might be friction."

Books: Encyclopedia Madonnica 20th Anniversary Edition
M IllustratedA message from our friend Matthew Rettenmund:

It's been almost 20 years since I published "Encyclopedia Madonnica", so what better time to create a sequel? I'm using Kickstarter to fund a self-published follow-up, one I want to be all-inclusive of Madonna's life and career. That means I'll have to overhaul existing entries as well as write new ones to cover (almost) everything she's been up to for the past two decades.

Books can't take the place of up-to-the-minute Web sites like MadonnaTribe, and the first edition was kind of like a Google search of Madonna spiced up with my own take on things. But I think a sequel in 2015 (planned spring publication) can instead serve as a sort of record of all the things we, as fans, have cherished about Madonna, and all the things society has loved, hated or just plain noticed about her. It says something about our culture that Madonna's grills were such a big deal...but what? That's part of what my job will be in writing the updated version.

I'll also do something I wasn't able to do in 1994 when I was first writing the book - I'll seek out interviews with a host of Madonna consorts and collaborators, and if my Kickstarter is a success, I should be able to release many unpublished photos, too.

I would like to invite Madonna's fans to support this project, which in turn supports Madonna: There's only one queen, and the world needs reminding!

Thank you, MadonnaTribe, and thank you to everyone who decides to make a pledge on Kickstarter. My goal will be to under promise and over deliver.
