Clean Bandit would ‘love to work’ with Madonna

She may be hitting her 60th birthday next month – but Madonna remains a musical force, with Clean Bandit becoming the latest act who want to work with her.

They are hoping to get her to sing on one of their songs after she lip-synced to Solo, their hit with Demi Lovato, on her Instagram last month to celebrate LGBTQ + Pride Month.

Jack Patterson, one third of Clean Bandit along with his brother Luke and Grace Chatto, told The Sun newspaper’s Bizarre column: “We couldn’t believe that. We’re big fans. We’d love to work with her … if she’s reading this.”

Clean Bandit replied to her Instagram message at the time, writing: “OMG glad you’re enjoying Solo @madonna [sic]”

Demi Lovato was just as blown away by Madonna miming to Solo, writing on her Instagram: “THE QUEEN HERSELF SINGING SOLO!!!!! What is life…?!?!!!! [sic]”

Amanda Cazalet on Madonna

“At the time I wasn’t offended but, looking back, I realise I was taken advantage of by someone who, at the time, was my boss.”

Madonna, who turns 60 next month, was 32 when she spotted Amanda, 25, strutting the catwalk for fashion designer Jean-Paul Gaultier in Paris in 1990.

The English beauty was Gaultier’s muse, his model for all his illustrations, shows and campaigns. Her figure was even the inspiration for his torso-shaped perfume bottle.

Madonna had gone to the show to talent-spot models for her upcoming video for single Justify My Love.

Mum-of-two Amanda, who lives near St Albans, Herts, told us: “Jean-Paul and Madonna were friends so when she was looking for models she came to his show. I wasn’t a fan but I was flattered to be picked.” read more →
