MADONNA’s representative has denied controversial indie artist ARIEL PINK’s recent announcement that he has been hired to work on her upcoming album.
In a recent interview with Faster Louder, the Los Angeles-based musician claimed bosses at the Material Girl’s record company contacted him about writing songs for her 13th studio album, and he also took a shot at her career in the process.
He said, “Interscope are calling me to help write Madonna’s record. She can’t just have her Avicii, her producers or whatever, come up with a new techno jam for her to gyrate to and pretend that she’s 20 years old… They need songwriting… They actually need songs.
“The first record was so good because of the songs. It’s been a downward slide since. Ray of Light is not cool. And all the other stuff she’s done after that, it’s not like it matters. It really shows a drain of values.”
However Madonna’s longtime manager Guy Oseary has now responded to Pink’s claims, writing in a post on Twitter.com, “Madonna and I have never heard of Pink. The label may have reached out but M has no interest in working with (him).”
