21 Madonna Lyrics to Live Your Life By

There must be a reason Madonna’s been able to maintain a flawless music career, releasing albums since 1983 (and still going). She’s able to teach us about life through her songs in ways that are often overlooked because of her antics. Really though, she’s more valuable than she’s often given credit for these days.
She perfected the art of being yourself.
“Express yourself, don’t repress yourself.” (“Human Nature”)
“I’m breaking all the rules I didn’t make.” (“Human Nature”)
She’s never afraid of taking a chance.
“I’m not afraid of what I’ll face, but I’m afraid to stay.” (“Jump”)
She always challenges beauty standards.
“Should I lose some weight? Am I gonna be a star?” (“American Life”)
“Beauty’s where you find it, not just where you bump and grind it.” (“Vogue”)
She didn’t let her gender stop her from saying what she wanted.
“Would it sound better if I were a man?” (“Human Nature”)

She also mastered the kiss-off long before Beyoncé directed men “to the left, to the left.”
“Does it make you feel good to see me cry? I think it does. That’s why it’s time to say bye bye.” (“Bye Bye Baby”)
“The next time you want p***y, just look in the mirror, baby.” (“Waiting”)

She understands that disappointment in love is not her fault.
“It was so easy in the beginning, when you didn’t feel like running from your feelings. What happened? What do I remind you of? Your past, your dreams, or some part of yourself that you just can’t love?” (“Waiting”)

She won’t let anyone else boss her around.
“Poor is the man whose pleasures depend on the permission of another.” (“Justify My Love”)
She doesn’t let other women intimidate her.
“Here she comes, little Susie ho-maker, thinks she’ll get respect if she screws it.” (“Thief of Hearts”)
“She’s not me, she doesn’t have my name; she’ll never have what I have.” (“She’s Not Me”)
She speaks of social injustices and problems in loving and accepting ways.
“Brothers, sisters, why can’t we learn to accept that we’re different before it’s too late?” (“Why’s It So Hard?”)
“He was like a father to me, nothing in the world he wouldn’t do; taught me to respect myself, said we’re all made of flesh and blood. Why should he be treated differently? Shouldn’t matter who you choose to love.” (“In This Life”)

She’s never willing to settle.
“Second best is never enough, you’ll do much better, baby, on your own.” (“Express Yourself”)

She knows exactly what’s important when looking for a lover.
“‘Cause the boy with the cold hard cash is always Mister Right.” (“Material Girl”)
Even the Queen knows a thing or two about unrequited love.
“I don’t know what I mean to you. The only thing I know is I dream of you.” (“I’d Rather Be Your Lover”)
She always manages to see the silver lining.
“Who needs the sun when the rain’s so full of life?” (“Sanctuary”)
She encourages people to love themselves (as much as she loves herself).
“Until I learned to love myself, I was never ever lovin’ anybody else.” (“Secret”)

She values her experiences and has no regrets about her past.
“I have no regrets, there’s nothing to forget. All the pain was worth it.” (“I Deserve It”)
“You could take all this, take it away. I’d still have it all.” (“Nothing Fails”)

What a Diplo-matic dude!

American producer-DJ-remixer Diplo, famous for his high profile collaborations with pop artists such as Madonna, Britney Spears and others, is set to perform in India.


Currently, he has been working with Queen of Pop Madonna for her upcoming album and has collaborated with Skrillex to create the group Jack Ü. “I loved working with Madonna. The tracks have come out great and crazy- sounding. She is one of those few artists who started the trend of reinventing themselves before anybody else. She kind of began that trend of actually coming back with a refreshingly new look, music style and fresh tunes; winning it and hitting the top of the charts. She was ready to experiment while collaborating with me and was very open-minded to my ideas.”

Simon Cowell guru Ryan Tedder working with Madonna for new album

Madge is desperate to ensure her new material is a success, and has been tapping up some of the industry’s biggest hitters to help her out, including One Republic’s Ryan Tedder.

Madonna has drafted in Simon Cowell’s favourite hit maker to pen tracks for her new album.

The singer, 56, is desperate to ensure her 2015 material is a success, and has been tapping up some of the industry’s biggest hitters to help her out, including One Republic’s Ryan Tedder.

The pop maestro has been Cowell’s first port of call to compose songs for the label’s priority acts including One Direction and Ella Henderson, after he wrote and produced Bleeding Love for Leona Lewis. Ryan, 35, tells 3am Madge’s new music is “her best stuff in over a decade – it’s really strong”.


Keeping tight-lipped about his contribution, he says: “The tracks I’ve done with her are really hard to explain.” Clever way to keep a lid on things, Ryan. That’ll keep Madge happy.

It comes after the Material Girl teamed up with one of the world’s biggest DJs, Avicii, 25. Their track Rebel Heart, was leaked online along with another song, Wash Over Me, which the singer said “broke her heart”.

Ryan, who performed with his band at Capital FM’s Jingle Bell Ball at London’s O2 Arena on Saturday, adds: “I was actually working on something with Madonna when her tracks leaked.

“So I panicked because I thought it was the song I was working on, but luckily it wasn’t.

“People have way too much time on their hands.”

Unlike Ryan, who fits being the lead singer of a band – which performed on Strictly at the weekend – in with creating for
the rest of the industry. Not bad going.

Madonna is also rumoured to be working with DJ Diplo, 36.
