Madonna is Kind of Weary of Fame
In an interview for Grazia, Madonna said she uses her fame for “the greater good”…

“I am aware that everything I say and do is judged.
I use that to the greater good, I know I can influence people.
I think people often misunderstand my power and get intimidated by that, rather than trying to understand me.
I’m interested in fame as I am kind of weary of it.
I think it has its pluses and minuses.
I think everyone is intrigued and wants to have a part of that kind of world, but if you are smart, you realise the trap that it is as well.”

Julie Frost, Masterpiece and a Golden Globe
Julie Frost may not be a household name, but she’s one of the songwriters behind Madonna’s Golden Globe “Best Original Song” win.
She told CBSnews.com…

As Adam Levine and Jimmy Fallon announced the award for “Best Original Song”, I thought, no matter what happens, I’m proud of our song and to be included in the same category as so many of my musical heroes.
Being acknowledged by the Hollywood Foreign Press amongst a room full of so many people I admire, and accepting the award next to Madonna, was such an honor.

Madonna not featuring on Paul Oakenfold’s new album
In a recent interview with Express&Star Paul Oakenfold was asked about Madonna…

Is it true Madonna is collaborating on one of the tracks?
Not on this album – no.

Famously you toured with Madonna and worked with her on ‘Celebration’, what is it like working with such an icon?
Memorable and inspiring are the words that come to mind. Madonna, as we all know, is a pioneer of music. She is amazing in the studio, inspirational, and she delivers that and more to her live show.
