I found the entire song and even though I said that I hate listening to things before they are suppose to come out, I have to say that I'm kind of glad that I got to listen to the this song because I LOVE it. I'm even more excited for her album to come out...if that's even possible!
And true to Madonna form...even though she collaborated with a few artists on this album, as usual, she has maintained her sound and her style. Madonna merely used the other artist to spice it up a little.
Genius I tell ya.

The signs of a Madonna storm soon to come???
RUMORS RUMORS RUMORS
as well as song leaks.
I, for one, never like to hear snippets of "song leaks" because they're almost never the "finished product" and I'm a finished product type of gal. I can totally wait. I hate having to hear the bad quality versions without all the bells and whistles.
There's two out there right now, one is called "The Beat Goes On" or something like that. I tried to look it up on You Tube but Warner music already pulled it thank goodness.
Another rumor I'm excited about is the possibility that Madge might be the opening act (she is ALWAYS the opening act, because who's bigger than Madonna?? oh yeah. That's right. NO ONE.). Apparently she and Justin Timberlake might be doing the performance together. Interesting how Madge performed with Timberlake's ex and our favorite car wreck Britney. I wonder what the shock value is going to be for this one ..(its Madonna after all, there's gotta be something surprising). Is Timberlake going to come out in a cone bra???
Oh one can only dream.
VMAs is on September 9th, 2007. I'm tivo-ing (or DVR-ing) that shiz.

I really can't explain it but even in early Madonna interviews, Madonna has a certain look in her eye that said: "Yeah bitch, I'm here. Fucking pay attention."
From the very beginning you knew she was the one in charge of everything. She's in charge of her look, her music, the interview, everything. I have yet to see that in any famous pop star out there today. That's why I laugh whenever the press is so quick to say who the "next Madonna" is. I laughed out loud when they said it about Britney. Come on now...look at Britney's eyes..(well, not right now, they're pretty much glassed over..) but PRE-Kevin/PRE-meltdown Britney. When she was everyone's darling...all you had to do was look at her eyes. She wasn't the next Madonna. Not even close. She had the look of the typical pop star puppet that had been carefully created and was carefully controlled by music executives in stuffy suits. You KNOW she's not the one responsible for her look, her music and her interviews are lovingly scripted by someone else. She has the look of prey and the recent Britney proves that she was. Eaten up by the fame machine.
Madonna has lasted as long as she has because she has the combination of sex appeal,ambition, strong work ethic, focus, courage and BRAINS. You would be hard pressed to find a smart pop artist and that's why I think most of them haven't lasted as long as Madonna. Or if they were smart, they don't have the balls to back it up, or the ambition to see it through.
Simply put, Madonna, from the very beginning, was a predator. She wasn't anyone's puppet. Madonna is her own carefully crafted creation. She's the CEO, CFO, secretary, receptionist and janitor of Madonna,Inc.
There is no "next Madonna" because there is no need for a "next Madonna." Madonna's still here and she's left a mark so large on the music and entertainment industry, no pop star will ever fill her shoes.
Seriously, I'm in love with this woman.

Madonna's busy schedule - album, books, tour:
Madonna steels herself for imminent visit by Malawi child welfare officers
With the future of her son's adoption depending on an imminent visit by a child welfare officer from his native Malawi, Madonna is doing everything in her power to make sure she keeps custody of 18-month-old David Banda.
Last week she flew back from New York – where she is recording a new album and house-hunting – to prepare for the arrival of Penston Kilembe, who is due to spend up to five days at the singer's £6.5 million London home.
But the 48-year-old star's plans to be reunited with her family are to be short-lived. She aims to return to New York as soon as the inspection is over, to put the finishing touches to her new album.
After a short break with her film director husband Guy Ritchie and their children, Madonna will then be WORKING non-stop until mid-2008. "The finishing touches still have to be added to her new album, so she is flying back to the States once the officer's visit is over."
Madonna, who has a daughter, Lourdes, 11, and a six-year-old son, Rocco, has already told her husband she will be working back to back from September.
"Madonna has promised to take a six-week break to spend time with Guy and the children before embarking on her mammoth ten-month work regime," adds the source.
"After the new record is released in November she is getting ready for a world tour that kicks off next June, then she is launching a 25th anniversary box set and a set of 12 children's books."
I have nothing to say about this except:
WHOOO HOOOO!!!!!! I'm so excitamated!!!!!
