…during those early Village days, she was invited to the studio by Madonna, along with producer and Cherrytree Records boss Martin Kierszenbaum. (“Madonna’s dancers play my music during her rehearsals and workouts every week,” Kills says, asked how the collaboration came about.) The trio completed eight songs in seven days for the Queen of Pop’s next album. According to Madonna’s Instagram, they also bonded up a storm. “She writes incredible lyrics, sings beautiful melodies, but most of all she is so fucking funny,” Kills says.
“Madonna and I have never heard of Ariel Pink. The label may have reached out but M has no interest in working with mermaids.”

Madonna has defended her son Rocco Ritchie after he posted a graphic video on Instagram.com which appeared to show the execution of children.
The 14 year old, whose father is Madonna’s ex-husband Guy Ritchie, uploaded the disturbing footage to his account on Thursday (09Oct14) and captioned the clip, “I think if your (you are) still being a d**k to people, I would stop. We’ve got a little worse of a problem on are (our) hands here guys. We don’t need more negative a**holes here.”
Ritchie received a slew of criticism for sharing the explicit video, but his superstar mother has now publicly backed her son by posting a picture of the word ‘Imagine’ to her own Instagram page with the caption, “I applaud my son’s desire to express his outrage by posting footage of Isis (Islamic militant group) on Instagram. Humans are becoming numb to this violent imagery. He is saying our problems are nothing compared to what’s going on around the world. Freedom fighting is in his blood. Let’s pray for Peace!”

MNEK has described Madonna’s new material as “wicked”.
The British singer-songwriter has been in the studio with the US icon to work on a track for her forthcoming new album, which is due out in 2015.
“I almost get quite scared talking about it,” MNEK told Digital Spy at the MOBO Awards launch. “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 confirmed for BBC Radio One that the first single for Madonna’s upcoming album was recorded last week in New York and that she is going to use 5 or 6 songs from the session.
You can listen to the interview bellow, Madonna part starts around 3:30:
Madonna’s been hard at work on her upcoming new album — as evidenced by her prolific posts on Instagram — and is planning for it to be released in 2015, according to a representative.
Among those she’s working with is super-producer Diplo, who has turned up in multiple photos on the diva’s Instagram account. It’s unclear if Diplo (who recently graced the cover of Billboard magazine) is materializing as the album’s primary producer, but it would seem that he could play a significant role in the project.
When asked specifically about Diplo and his involvement in the album, Madonna’s manager Guy Oseary told Billboard, “She’s currently in the studio with Diplo and having a lot of fun,” but didn’t offer any further clues about the project. Alas.
