Backstage at the Golden Globe Awards, Madonna certainly didn’t seem to harbor any ill will toward Elton John, following his red carpet dis of the Material Girl. “I hope he speaks to me for the next couple of years. He’s known to get mad at me,” Madge said while fielding a question about trumping John, after her Best Original Song win for “Masterpiece”. She also talked about collaborating on her upcoming album MDNA with producers Martin Solveig and William Orbit. Watch below!
“He’s brilliant and I adore him,” Madonna continued while talking about Elton. “He’ll win another award. I don’t feel bad.”
John’s Gnomeo & Juliet track “Hello Hello” was one of four other soundtrack tunes that Madonna’s “Masterpiece” beat out for the Golden Globe win.
The W.E. director was later asked about what the sound of her upcoming 12th studio album MDNA will be. “Well, I did a good majority of the album with Martin Solveig… I love his sound — it’s really fresh, doesn’t sound like anybody else’s,” Madonna said. “Happy. I would say his music is happy. It puts a smile on your face.”
She also talked about working once again with English producer William Orbit, who handled the bulk of her Grammy-winning 1998 album Ray Of Light: “His songs tend to be, I don’t want to say dark — more thoughtful and introspective.”
But lest anyone worry that this won’t be a dance album, Madge put her fans’ minds at ease. “Oh, yes — lots of dancing, cheerleading, football players,” she noted.
MDNA is due out some time in March. First single “Give Me All Your Luvin” arrives in early February, and will coincide with Madonna’s Super Bowl halftime performance.
