The decision to release the songs much earlier than anticipated was due to the leaking of several work-in-progress demos earlier this week.

I was hoping to release my new single ‘Living For Love’ on Valentine’s Day with the rest of the album coming in the Spring. I would prefer my fans to hear completed versions of some of the songs instead of the incomplete tracks that are circulating. Please consider these six songs as an early Christmas gift,” commented Madonna.

Madonna Dismisses New Album Leak

Before Madonna had even announced the official title and release date of her upcoming 2015 album, leaked Madonna tracks allegedly comprising the entire album have hit the Internet. Shortly after Twitter exploded with the news, Madge herself took to Instagram to comment on the situation. She dismissed the leaked versions as “unfinished demos stolen long ago” and thanked fans for their “loyalty” in “not listening” to the unfinished material.

‘Thank you for not listening! Thank you for your loyalty! Thank you for waiting and if you have heard please know they are unfinished demos stolen long ago and not ready to be presented to the world’Madonna via Instagram

Madonna & Versace Get Together Again

madonna versace 2015The campaign, which was photographed in New York City by Mert & Marcus captures the unapologetic power of Madonna wearing pieces from the new Versace collection.

Madonna Stars in New Versace 2015 Ad Campaign

The new ad campaign for Versace featuring Madonna is scheduled for next spring. Perched on the edge of her chair, fixing the camera with a smoldering gaze, she looks feral, poised for the kill. She is Madonna, enshrined in a new advertising campaign showcasing Donatella Versace’s spring/summer 2015 collection. Lean and faintly menacing, she appears, at least in the lens of the fashion photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, the image of candid aggression.

She is that and more, said Ms. Versace, whose latest print collaboration with the star (a 12-page portfolio set to break next spring in magazines including Vanity Fair and the American, French and Italian editions of Vogue) is but the latest expression of a running theme. “Madonna says it best herself: She is unapologetic,” Ms. Versace said the other day. “She is her own woman, a role model who shows other women how we can do what we want, and get what we want, and do so for all of our lives, with no compromise.”

“When Madonna asked me on set, ‘Which character do you want me to play?’ ” Ms. Versace recalled, “I answered, ‘I want you to be Madonna and yourself.’ And she laughed at me.”
