Freemasons: We had to turn down Madonna

Chart-topping dance duo Freemasons have revealed that their popularity meant they were forced to say no to a Madonna remix.

The Brighton pair – whose recent remix of Kelly Rowland’s Work reached number four in the UK singles charts – told inthenews.co.uk that they had to turn down the chance to remix the Material Girl as they were simply too busy.

“We turned down Madonna the other week,” explained Russell Small.

“Not because we wanted to but because of a time issue. We’ve got two more remixes to do and we’ve just co-produced a track for the Will Young album so we just didn’t have time.

“And we want to make an album at the end of the summer, so we’re not taking on new material.”

Small also admitted that the pair almost turned down the chance to rework Rowland’s Work.

“We were expecting Matthew Knowles – Beyonce’s father, who also manages Kelly Rowland – to ask us to do a house mix of the song,” he explained.

“And we’re very precious about our vocals and when we sped the Kelly Rowland vocals up, it sounded… dreadful.

“So we went back to them and said we wanted freedom to do what we wanted. And they said we could do whatever we liked!”

Freemasons’ new single When You Touch Me, featuring Katherine Ellis, is released on June 23rd.

Madonna loves “Will and Grace”

Madonna may have starred in a few big-screen blockbusters but her favourite acting job ever was in the sitcom Will And Grace.

She said: “It was purely and simply very fun to do. I got to invent a new catchphrase – ‘Cut to me’ – which fans say to me all the time. I loved it.”

Pharrell Williams: ‘I made Madonna cry like a baby’

Pharrell Williams admitted he reduced Madonna to a sobbing wreck while working on her recent album ‘Hard Candy’.

The producer said he made the icon cry like a baby during recording sessions for the record.

“I totally made her cry like. Like a baby. I had to get her a towel,” he told Shortlist. “We were alone recording the album and she kept talking a lot of rubbish, so I shouted a lot of rubbish and she started crying her eyes out.”

The N.E.R.D man admitted he had been quite nasty to Madonna, but said he had no plans to make their scrap public until the singer spoke about it herself.

“I just said some really nasty stuff, I guess. And yeah, she cried for a really long time actually,” he said. “To be honest I can’t believe she told someone about it. The whole situation was quite intense. It’s totally weird to make Madonna sob, but even stranger when she tells everyone, ‘Pharrell made me cry’.
