Is Madonna Collaborating with Miley Cyrus on a New Song?

By Shane Lou

Mert & Marcus/Warner Bros. RecordsIn January, Madonna made an appearance on Miley Cyrus‘ MTV Unplugged special. It’s possible that their collaboration didn’t end there.

Madonna has posted onto Instagram lyrics to a song that may be titled “Rebel Heart.” She wrote, “Wash all over me…………….. #rebelheart.”

The most interesting aspect of the post is that Miley and a songwriter with whom the “Wrecking Ball” singer has worked, MoZella, were initially tagged on it, according to MTV. However, the tags have since been removed.

Miley may have dropped another hint regarding a potential duet by uploading a photo of herself wearing a T-shirt that features a naked Madonna. She tagged Madge on the post, too.

Madonna’s “Rebel Heart” post includes the following lines: “All of my illusions/could be shattered in a second/You can thread a needle/with a teardrop from my eye.”

Earlier this month, Madonna teased on Instagram another song that may be titled “Messiah.” She’s currently focusing on the follow-up to her 2012 album MDNA.

By ABC News Radio

Bon Jovi, a founding owner of the Arena Football League’s Philadelphia Soul, has reportedly been interested in owning an NFL team for a long time and is friendly with a number of NFL owners. New York magazine reports Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft and John Mara, the owner of the rocker’s beloved New York Giants, have all endorsed him for NFL ownership.

In June, Bon Jovi was reportedly seen having lunch with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in Manhattan.

According to New York magazine, Bon Jovi is unable to meet the team’s likely selling price of $1 billion, so he’s teamed up with a group in Toronto that also owns the Maple Leafs, Raptors and the Air Canada Centre, …read more

Colbie Caillat's "Try" Inspired by Label's Request for Her to Be Poppier & Sexier

By Shane Lou

Courtesy: Republic RecordsColbie Caillat‘s song “Try” — especially its video, where she and other women go makeup-free — is getting a lot of attention for its powerful message about women not bowing to pressure to look or act a certain way. But Colbie initially wrote the song after a major dispute with her record label about the direction of her music.

“I recorded an album, I was so proud of it. It had a kind of style…free-spirited, acoustic, happy — more like my old stuff,” she tells ABC News Radio. “And they wanted that changed, and they wanted it to be more pop. And what comes with pop is what all those pop artists do: the girls dress very sexy and revealing, and the videos are over-the-top. And they were requesting that of me.”

As you might expect, this didn’t sit well with Colbie: she loved the music she’d created, and was furious that she was told it wasn’t good enough.

“I was just so mad, because I made this beautiful album that I wrote with amazing people, and I was so proud of …read more
