Today, during a pre-recorded interview that will be aired on Friday’s episode of The Graham Norton Show, Madonna told host Graham Norton that her upcoming 12th studio album (due out in March) will be called MDNA, according to Glamour. MDNA? The first thing that comes to mind? Drugs! The second thing: Madonna DNA. Cute. Meanwhile, lead single “Give Me All Your Luvin’” is apparently set to impact radio in the States on February 7, i.e. mere days after the singer/director’s film W.E. hits theaters and she performs during halftime at the Super Bowl. That Madonna, always using her noggin.
Madonna joked with Norton about her album’s release date. “It’s soon. It depends how quickly people hack in to my server and leak it,” she apparently said. “Can people wait? It’s terrible.”
Madge seemed to be less tongue-in-cheek — and more careful about her word choice — when commenting on Lady Gaga, who the Internet loves to pit her against. “When I first saw her I was really impressed by her and she was cool. She did remind me of me back in the day,” Madonna noted, according to Glamour. “I do think she is very talented.”
What do you think of the title of MDNA for Madonna’s upcoming album — clever or totally WTF?
