  • Wow

  • fiona

    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.

  • cookie

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

  • Stay Tune

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

  • http://www.nationwidelawcenter.com/attorneyprofile.html Bob Hannah

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

  • pia

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

  • alejandra

    LUV the track, it sounds awesome on Super Blast.

  • kendra

    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!

  • isla

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

  • Madonna The Best Selling

    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?

  • Snookie

    @Madonna The Best Selling:

    Lady??? That fugly? LOL

  • nev

  • Luna Maya

    ****comeback of the year*****

  • ENOUGH SAID

    Gaga is a trying-hard copycat & wannabe!

  • MADONNA-LYP-SYNCS

    FUK MADONNA…the single debuted at number 13. GAGA DEBUTED AT NUMBER ONE. MA-DONE-A won’t outsell BTW with that trash of an album. UGLY GAP TOOTH BIT##. It dropped down on itunes quickly. Call her your queen, but she damn sure isn’t mine. Madonnas fans are old as dirt anyway.

  • PetraUK

    Her album MDNA is going to open 500k in the US…according to music insiders.

  • Dan

    What’s funny is the only way for madonnas fans to love their tacky icon is to attack Lady Gaga, who is a lady not a cunt like madonna. Madonnas old wasted pussy is just capitalizing off the super bowl viewership….HER ALBUM SUCKS ASS. Let madonna have an HBO special and see if 112 million watch it….yeah right….edge of glory, new york born gaga song came on right after the commercial break from wrinkled madonna. And they won too.

  • Snookie

    My family just watched, ate, talked during her performance. The intro was very GAGA like. Madonna never did anything but spread her legs and steal other peoples style, class, accent, music, and young men..lol.

  • Nomadic

    Lady Gaga is tacky. Period.

  • Live Well

    @Dan:

    ^
    another little donkey who is pressed :(

  • My Vote Goes To (drum rolls)

    I choose Madonna over Gaga; hype with no substance !

  • Snookie

    Madonna has 7 Grammys
    Lady Gaga 5 Grammys already bit@@. And she wrote all her hits unlike madonna.

    Lady Gaga nominated 3 TIMES for Album Of The Year. 3 YEARS IN A ROW.

    Madonna only nominated once…too bad cause this new album is so trashy. Have you even seen the song titles? She has a song called I Fuc@@@ Up. Yeah, ya sure did winch. She thinks the super bowl was going to make GMAYL go number one. FLOPPED….FLOPPED..FLOPPED

    Let Princess GAGA perform at the super bowl with the single releasing the same time and watch her 18 million record breaking twitter followers take it to number ONE.

  • Lame Monster Delusional Farts

    @Snookie:

    Madonna The Best Selling Female Artist of All Time and The Queen of Pop.

    Save your drama to your mama .

  • Snookie

    and nobody said gaga has outsold ma-done-a. Madonnas fans are reaching. But I do know BTW debuted number one..Express peaked number two. Also, Bad Romance or Just Dance outsold any madonna single. Gaga has 25 years to rack up other accolades madonna won’t by that time. In 10 years madonna will be 60 plus and her dwindling ass fans will still hang on that wasted poosy. MIA FLIPPS FINGER AT MADONNA FANS…

  • Godney Spears

    cant stand lady gaga these days. she is just a disgusting vile p*g. her attitude are so fake and she is just using her fans to buy her garbage @ her music and art.

  • They Just Insecured

    see the only stand who is insecure is a monster from Gaga’s wet fart @ss.

  • Oh Well

    @ENOUGH SAID:

    Gaga the copycat Xerox wannabe !

  • LISTEN by Beyonce

    THIS IS THE ALBUM OF THE CENTURY IS GOING TO BE LIKE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • JOKE SPEARS TEARS

    Britney is the joke.
