Rumor: “Girls Gone Wild” Benassi Track

from Madonnarama:

We already revealed the first producers that are working on Madonna’s upcoming album: William Orbit and Martin Solveig. Another producer we can add on that list is none other than Benny Benassi.

Madonna and Benny Benassi are again working together for the upcoming 2012 album and we at Madonnarama can reveal the title of the track: “Girls Gone Wild“.

The song has already been recorded and is, for sure, going to be a huge dance track and possibly be released as one of the singles from the forthcoming album.

Madge’s boys head for posh school

Madonna is planning to send her sons to Marlborough College – the smart English boarding school favoured by the Middleton family.

The school costs up to £30,300 a year and counts Princess Eugenie, Otis Ferry and comedian Jack Whitehall among its famous alumni, as well as the Duchess of Cambridge and her siblings James and Pippa.

Now the Queen of Pop, 53, hopes to send her son Rocco, 11, from her marriage to Guy Ritchie, to the 168-year-old Wiltshire school. He is understood to have completed an application to move there at 13. Madonna’s adopted son David, six, would follow in his brother’s footsteps.

“The plan to have Rocco educated in England started as Guy’s idea,” says a source. “He wants Rocco and David to go to a boarding school as he did. He feels strongly that the education system is better here than in America.”

Madonna – who recently released her film W.E. about King Edward VIII – is open to the idea, so she has been over to visit Marlborough.

Guy, 43, who lives at Ashcombe House near Salisbury in Wiltshire, last month had a baby son by model girlfriend Jacqui Ainsley, 29.

But he is said to be focused on his older sons’s education and wants David and Rocco schooled in the British system.

“Guy wants David to be educated at a boarding school when he reaches 13, too,” says the source.

Madonna’s daughter Lourdes, 15, attends LaGuardia High School of Music and Art and Performing Arts in New York, while Rocco is currently educated at Lycee Francais schools in New York and London.

“Marlborough closed applications for 2013 yesterday, so everyone’s keeping their fingers crossed that Rocco gets a place,” says my mole.

A Marlborough spokesman said: “We aren’t able to comment on individual applications.”

Coty Inc. Announces Agreement With Madonna’s MG Icon

Truth or Dare by Madonna

Coty Prestige, a division of Coty Inc., announced today that it signed an agreement with MG Icon LLC, a joint venture between Madonna, Guy Oseary, and Iconix Brand Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: ICON), to launch the icon’s first fragrance. The fragrance, Truth or Dare by Madonna, will debut exclusively at Macy’s in April 2012 in the United States, with global distribution beginning in May.

The agreement with Coty marks the first time Madonna, the top selling female recording artist of all time, with more than 300 million records sold worldwide, will launch a fragrance.

Madonna stated to Women’s Wear Daily, “I have always been obsessed by fragrance and for years wanted to create something personal that was an expression of me but that other people could relate to as well. Something honest, and yet daring, hence the name Truth or Dare.”

“Madonna is the marquis addition to Coty’s unrivaled brand portfolio and further establishes us as cutting edge leaders in the global beauty industry,” Bernd Beetz, CEO, Coty Inc said. “We are thrilled to embark on this new venture with Madonna, a global icon with unprecedented star power and cultural relevance.”

Madonna will be featured in a global print, television, and online marketing campaign produced in collaboration with Fabien Baron of Baron & Baron who she has worked with on many projects including “Sex,” her renowned 1992 pictorial essay on sexuality.

“Madonna is an artistic phenomenon whose vision has helped define the cultural zeitgeist for nearly three decades. Her fans around the world have an unparalleled devotion and will be eager to experience a unique, and more personal, materialization of her talent,” Michele Scannavini, President, Coty Prestige said.

Truth or Dare by Madonna will be a signature floral fragrance. Its unique blend of narcotic florals, balanced with addictive woods and vanilla, creates a scent that is timeless, yet contemporary, simultaneously dark and light. The bottle plays up the Truth or Dare duality – a classic and sophisticated shape, with modern and edgy detailing.

The scent will be available in a 75ml EDP ($68 / euro 62), 50ml EDP ($55 / euro 46), 30ml EDP ($39 / euro 35), Body Lotion ($28 / euro 22), and Shower Gel ($24 / euro 21).

“Madonna is a globally recognized music and style pioneer. The debut of her first fragrance is a dynamic platform to launch her lifestyle brand, Truth or Dare by Madonna,” commented Neil Cole, CEO, Iconix Brand Group. “Coty is a respected leader in the prestige fragrance industry. Their expertise coupled with Madonna’s iconic status is a powerful partnership.”

Truth or Dare by Madonna

Madonna is launching her second lifestyle brand, following the success of her debut Material Girl label. The star’s new line, entitled Truth Or Dare by Madonna, will be targeted at an older audience to her previous offering and will start with fragrance. Accessories are planned for 2012, including footwear, handbags and underwear.
The news comes after the singer signed a deal with brand management company, Iconix Brand Group.
“Over the past several years, I have been approached countless times to create my own brand,” said Madonna. “The timing is right and I have found great partners in Iconix, who can help translate my vision to reality.”
The label will illustrate Madonna’s look as a powerful, female icon and will be targeted at women aged between 27 to 50.
“The interest and excitement globally for brands developed by Madonna are significant,” Iconix’s ceo Neil Cole told WWD. “After the highly successful launch of the junior brand Material Girl, we knew there would be a tremendous demand for a brand that Madonna herself is the face of and that truly captures her essence.”

Give Me All Your Love Lyrics ?

L-U-V Madonna
Y-O-U You wanna
I see you coming and I don’t wanna know your name
L-U-V Madonna
I see you coming and you’re gonna have to change the game
Y-O-U You wanna
Would you like to try?
Give me a reason why
Give me all that you got
Maybe you’ll do fine
As long as you don’t lie to me
And pretend to be what you’re not

(Chorus)
Don’t play the stupid game
Cause I’m a different kind of girl
Every record sounds the same
You’ve got to step into my world
Give me all your love and give me your love
Give me all your love today
Give me all your love and give me your love
Let’s forget about time
And dance our lives away

L-U-V Madonna
Y-O-U You wanna
Keep trying don’t give up, it’s if you want it bad enough
L-U-V Madonna
It’s right in front of you, now tell me what you’re thinking of
Y-O-U You wanna
In another place, at a different time
You can be my lucky star
We can drink some wine
Burgundy is fine
Let’s drink the bottle every drop

(Chorus)
Don’t play the stupid game
Cause I’m a different kind of girl
Every record sounds the same
You’ve got to step into my world
Give me all your love and give me your love
Give me all your love today
Give me all your love and give me your love
Let’s forget about time
And dance our lives away

(Bridge)
You have all the L-U-V
I gave you everything you need
Now it’s up to Y-O-U
Are you the one, shall we proceed?
M-A-D Don’t make me
L-U-V It’s time for
Y-O-U It’s up to
L-U-V I want your

(Chorus)
Don’t play the stupid game
Cause I’m a different kind of girl
Every record sounds the same
You’ve got to step into my world
Give me all your love and give me your love
Give me all your love today
Give me all your love and give me your love
Let’s forget about time
And dance our lives away
