BREAKING NEWS @ 02/09/2012 at 1:11 pm

Just in: GaGa is reportedly taking a notepad and pen !


MrsDestinyHope @ 02/09/2012 at 1:12 pm

The only people from today’s society that I see having a huge career at her age would be like Beyonce + Timberlake. Gaga + Bieber, NOT A ChANCE! BOW BEFORE THE TRUE QUEEN OF POP

She is a living icon!

it’s not the best track, but it doesnt have to be. the spelling in the song is catchy a la B-A-N-A-N-A-S in Gwen’s Holla Back Girl.

and yet some people call her irrelevant and ready for retirement. go figure!

Stay Tune @ 02/09/2012 at 1:17 pm

Madonna will talk to Ryan Seacrest KISS FM about tour, MDNA & Superbowl tomorrow!!!!

Don’t think much of her personally, but she is a great businesswoman. For once I would like to hear her REAL voice live…

really exciting, glad to have her back in MUSIC rather than other stuff like fashion, books, and movies.

alejandra @ 02/09/2012 at 1:20 pm

LUV the track, it sounds awesome on Super Blast.

if anybody was born to be a star it was her.
her parents named her MADONNA for god’s sake.
she didnt even need to change it!

@Bob Hannah: she sang live at the SB and sounded damn good.

Madonna The Best Selling @ 02/09/2012 at 1:23 pm

Poor Lady Gaga..her album Born This Way is supposedly to be the album of the century yet turned out to be a collection of songs from the 80s Tampax-advert promo.

….sad isn’t it?
