Duran Duran bassist John Taylor has accused Madonna of copying their ideas by installing Justin Timberlake and Timbaland as producers on her new album, ‘Hard Candy’.
It’s the same partnership that worked on Duran Duran’s 2007 album ‘Red Carpet Massacre’, which entered the UK charts at number 44.
Taylor said that he wasn’t surprised to see Madonna employ both artists but claimed it was their idea.
“It wouldn’t be the first time Madonna’s copied us. She’s been doing it for years,” he told the Daily Star.
