Crave – Official Audio and Lyrics

I’m tired of being far away from home
Far from working home
Far from where it’s safe
Hope it’s not too late
Rush rush rush on you
Love love loved on you
Love you like a fool
Put my trust in you

‘Cause you’re the one I crave
And my cravings get dangerous
The feelings never fade
I don’t think we should play with this
Say come come give me strength
I don’t think we should wait for this
‘Cause you’re the one I crave
And my cravings get dangerous

My cravings get dangerous
I don’t think we should play with this

My cravings get dangerous
I don’t think we should wait

‘Cause I’m just me That’s all I can be
Something real
Something I can feel
You know I just can’t change
This is how I’m made
I’m not afraid
Take me to the place

‘Cause you’re the one I crave
And my cravings get dangerous
The feelings never fade
I don’t think we should play with this
Say come come give me strength
I don’t think we should wait for this
‘Cause you’re the one I crave
And my cravings get dangerous

My cravings get dangerous
I don’t think we should play with this

My cravings get dangerous
I don’t think we should wait

You’re on me
I don’t think you should wait
You’re on me, one pull up away
You’re down to ride
Ride me like a wave
I gave you a sensation
Loner days you used to chase
It’s do or die and my love life can’t get crazy
It’s on the line girl you’re risking everything
It’s over ex rated

Ran so far to try to find the thing I lacked and there it was inside of me
Ran and ran and ran so fast a thing to last and there it was I hear you breathe

‘Cause you’re the one I crave
And my cravings get dangerous
The feelings never fade
I don’t think we should play with this
Say come come give me strength
I don’t think we should wait for this
‘Cause you’re the one I crave
And my cravings get dangerous

My cravings get dangerous
I don’t think we should play with this

My cravings get dangerous
I don’t think we should wait

It’s on the line girl you’re risking everything

Madonna breaks her silence over Michael Jackson abuse allegations

Madonna has broken her silence over the Michael Jackson sex abuse allegations, saying “people are innocent until proven guilty”.

Two men, James Safechuck and Wade Robson, alleged in graphic detail in a documentary that they were sexually abused as children by the King of Pop.

The Queen of Pop, who took Jackson as her date to the Oscars in 1991, said she has not watched the film Leaving Neverland.

But she told British Vogue: “I don’t have a lynch-mob mentality, so in my mind, people are innocent until proven guilty.

“I’ve had a thousand accusations hurled at me that are not true. So my attitude when people tell me things about people is, ‘Can you prove it?’”

Asked what would constitute proof of Jackson’s guilt, she replied: “I don’t know, I haven’t seen the film.

“But I guess it would be people recounting actual events – but then, of course, people sometimes lie.

“So I always say, ‘What’s the agenda? What do people want out of this? Are there people asking for money, is there some kind of extortion thing happening?’

“I would take all of those things into consideration.”

She said of the HBO and Channel 4 documentary: “I guess I’ll get around to seeing it. I haven’t seen it yet.”

Quavo to perform with Madonna at Eurovision final

Quavo, one third of the wildly successful rap trio Migos, on Monday announced a surprise pop-up concert in Tel Aviv next week.
The rapper is slated to perform at Hangar 11 on Thursday night, May 16, the same evening as the second Eurovision semi-final. And shortly after Quavo leaves the stage, the venue will turn into the Euroclub after-party. But for a couple of hours, the rapper will light up the Tel Aviv nightclub with a string of hip hop hits.

This might not be Quavo’s only performance in Tel Aviv next week. According to Live Nation, Quavo – who appears on the track “Future” on Madonna’s upcoming album – will also take the stage with the singer during the Eurovision final on May 18. Walla reported last month that Madonna was trying to choose between “Future” and “Dark Ballet” for her Eurovision performance, in addition to her classic hit “Like a Prayer.” Now, it looks like she’s decided – and brought her collaborator with her.

Madonna gives emotional speech at GLAAD Awards

Madonna, a pioneer for gay rights, accepted the Advocate for Change Award at the 2019 GLAAD Media Awards with a rousing speech that went from playful to emotional, bringing the audience to its feet.

The 60-year-old pop icon turned heads as she walked to her table at the Hilton Midtown in New York on Saturday night, before taking the stage to celebrate her three decades of advocacy work in the LGBTQ community.

“Why have I always fought for change? That’s a hard question to answer. It’s like trying to explain the importance of reading or the need to love. Growing up I always felt like an outsider, like I didn’t fit in. It wasn’t because I didn’t shave under my armpits, I just didn’t fit in, OK,” she said. “The first gay man I ever met was named Christopher Flynn. He was my ballet teacher in high school and he was the first person that believed in me, that made me feel special as a dancer, as an artist and as a human being. I know this sounds trivial and superficial, but he was the first man to tell me I was beautiful.”

Madonna went on to say Flynn took her to her first gay club in Detroit, and that the evening changed her life.

“For the first time I saw men kissing men, girls dressed like boys, boys wearing hot pants, insane, incredible dancing and a kind of freedom and joy and happiness that I had never seen before,” she said. “I finally felt like I was not alone, that it was OK to be different and to not be like everybody else. And that after all, I was not a freak. I felt at home, and it gave me hope.” read more →
