Madonna and Diplo are not dating
According to Star, Madonna has been “going at it” with Diplo ever since she and the DJ collaborated on Madonna’s new album Rebel Heart.

Madonna 89th on the SPIN “300 Best Albums of the Past 30 Years” list
SPIN hit a milestone this year: Their 30th birthday. To celebrate, they’vee ranked the 300 best albums of the past 30 years.

Madonna’s Like a Prayer album is 89th on the list…

89. Madonna, Like a Prayer
(Sire, 1989)

The controversy surrounding Like A Prayer’s title track overshadowed the fact that the album solidified Madonna’s evolution from pop tartlet to savvy adult artist.
