Madonna Reveals Her Frustration With Making Music in Songwriting Camps

Madonna Reveals Her Frustration With Making Music in Songwriting Camps

Madonna is making her feelings known about modern songwriting.

When her manager, Guy Oseary, posted a throwback MTV video on his Instagram on Friday (February 23) of himself and Madonna discussing her then-new album Ray of Light, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this month.

“Love this woman. Love this album. One day she will hopefully do a tour for this album.. It deserves to be performed from start to finish,” he wrote.

Madonna then responded to the post in the comments on Sunday (February 25), and made her feelings known about the popular hit-making practice of songwriting camps.

“Can you help me now please!!” she commented on the post.

“Remember when i made records with other artists from beginning to end and I was allowed to be a visionary and not have to go to song writing camps where No one can sit still for more than 15 minutes,” she wrote, adding several flame emojis with the words “coming soon.”

    what the hell are songwriting camps?

    a disgusting and repugnant woman

    I guess she means teams of song writers who write hit songs for pop stars like Selena Gomez

  • Hattie McDish

    Stfu Madonna. Snob, with way too much plastic surgery.

  • Antonio Beardall

    Which has what to do with her songwriting? I swear, people will just always remain bitter and throw hate on her. How about you STFU, guess you are too ugly you need to have that avatar? Take several seats. Madonna will always make waves, you can hardly get a ripple.

  • Antonio Beardall

    Am sure she is sobbing in pain that your precious opinion of her actually matters.

  • cafeast

    This is sad. No inspiration or talent left to create smthng, but is still desperate for relevance. I can understand why her latest albums all came out shitty.

    if i were an icon and out of new material i’ll just call it a career and retire peacefully celebrating what i did to pop culture instead of embarrassing myself

  • metɡɑɭɑ™₆₁₂₅ ʷᵃʳʳ’ºʳˢ ˢᵗʳºⁿᵍ

    She is still and will always be the Queen of Pop. We are all looking forward to her new material. She will no doubt extend her reign.

  • matthewriddick1

    She loves the spotlight too much to do that

  • Angelette Holtrust

    OMG these women need to age naturally, they look ridiculous with all the work done

  • Originals

    But that would be because you’re out of material. She’s not.

  • Michael Hupertz

    Lol, kids of today take more sugar in their coolaid.

  • Raven

    “guess you are too ugly you need to have that avatar?”

    Could be worse. He/she could look like you.

  • e jerry powell

    Hmm. Ray of Light. The only Madonna album I own.

    Has it really been that long?

  • Wayne

    I tried googling “Songwriting Camps” but I still don’t quite understand the concept.

  • Mia

    don’t make it about me and face it; her new material is trash compared to her early stuff..if that doesn’t mean “out of material” i don’t know what is.

  • Originals

    Her new stuff isn’t trash at all. Her latest album, unfortunately, we’ll never get to experience as intended, since it was leaked and she revamped and had the production change to make it “new” and “unleaked” again.

  • lastgoddessblog

    If she’s missing the experience of working one-on-one with another songwriter/producer, I hope she considers calling one of her former collaborators, Patrick Leonard. She wrote some of her most beautiful lyrics and melodies with him.

    “Take several seats.” I’m going to appropriate that comment. It’s the best one since, “Take it down a thousand.” Thanks!
