Madonna gives us a taste of her upcoming music video for “Turn Up The Radio” shot in Italy!

As you may know Madonna is currently on the road for her MDNA World Tour right now, but she found some time to shoot a new much video for the third single off her latest album, “Turn Up The Radio”. We’ve been given a first glimpse at the video via footage shot by a fan and a tweet from her manager, Guy Oseary.

The pic tweeted by the pop queen’s manager shows Madge wearing a black cap, black gloves and black cleavage-baring leather top. She is sitting in a car full of outlandish dancers in Florence, Italy. The tweet read, “Video shoot right now in Florence ‘Turn Up The Radio’…”

Another sneak peek of the shoot is from a video clip seen on Italy’s Repubblica magazine site. We see Madge rocking an Adele-style bouffant hairstyle and cat-eye makeup combined with black dominatrixy clothing. According to the Italian press, Madonna shot some of the footage at an abandoned gas station in Mugello before shooting in Florence.

The Cadillac car scene seems appropriate since the lyrics of the song chant, “I just wanna get in my car, I wanna go fast and I gotta go far.”

I don’t know about you guys, but we can’t wait to see the full music video premiere. What do you think of Madonna’s look? Is it too much for a 53-year-old, or do you say go for it Madonna?

We have a new development in the Madonna VS Lady Gaga saga! Has Madonna finally said something nice about Mother Monster?!

As you know, Madonna and Mother Monster haven’t exactly been each other’s biggest fans lately. Madonna did an interview with ABC News in January, calling Lady Gaga’s music ‘reductive’ and currently covers Gaga’s song ‘Born This Way’ on her MDNA Tour. The song is mashed with ‘Express Yourself’, a classic Madonna song that critics feel Lady Gaga has copied with ‘Born This Way.’

Lady Gaga recently responded to the blatant song diss at one of her New Zealand shows. During a rendition of “Hair,” Gaga took the high-rode saying, “It sometimes makes people feel better about themselves, you know, to put other people down or make fun of them or maybe make mockery of their work.” She added, “I don’t even want to fight back because it’s more important to me to keep writing music,” alluding to Madonna’s diss.

And now, it seems Madonna has responded to Gaga’s indirect comments towards the 53-year-old singer, and we’re happy to report it’s all positive. In a chat with Italian Magazine ‘Repubblica,’ Madonna was asked, “Is Lady Gaga a threat or only another temporary ‘spice girl’?” First of all, those iconic Spice Girls are still making headlines, so we’re not sure about the validity of the question, but according to That Grape Juice, Madge responded, “She is an artist with a great, high level of talent.”

There has so far been no evidence of this interview online, or when it was actually taped, but we’ll wait to see the full interview to gauge Madonna’s tone when answering the question. For now, we’re proud of Madonna for the kind words of Mother Monsters and we’re going to give her the benefit of the doubt.

Now, it’s your turn. What do you think of Madonna’s answer? Do you think Gaga will respond to this development at one of her upcoming shows? Leave us a comment!

Lady Gaga responds to Madonna covering her song on tour!

As you know, Madonna is currently touring the world on her new MDNA Tour, and during her set she sings a mashup of her classic song “Express Yourself” and Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way.” Many critics feel that “Born This Way” is a copycat of “Express Yourself” and apparently Madonna thinks so too, because she blatantly sings the two songs together and finishes by repeating “she’s not me” during her show.

We previously heard from one of Gaga’s producers, Fernando Garibay, that he is happy that Madonna covers her song because every time she does, he gets paid royalties. But now, Mother Monster has responded (without mentioning her name) to Madonna’s insult.

Speaking to the crowd atop a motorcycle while playing the piano during her song “Hair” at her show in New Zealand she explained, “It sometimes makes people feel better about themselves, you know, to put other people down or make fun of them or maybe make mockery of their work.” She added, “I don’t even want to fight back because it’s more important to me to keep writing music,” alluding to Madonna’s diss.

But! She wasn’t done there, continuing a bit later, “Things are really different now than they were 25 years ago, and that’s what makes ‘Born This Way’ so relevant for me.” She continued on, “We’re socially in a completely different place and it’s OK, we don’t have to all slice and hate each other anymore.” OUCH. Madonna, looks like Gaga’s taking the high rode on this one, and she may have won this round. We wonder if Madonna will combat these remarks in anyway?

Tell us who you think won this round Madonna with the mashup or Lady Gaga taking the high rode?

Watch Lady Gaga Respond to Madonna’s Insult:

Madonna unexpectedly covers Lady Gaga’s ‘Born This Way’ track at rehearsal, and it’s caught on tape!

During rehearsals for a concert in Israel, an onlooker caught Madonna performing a cover of Lady Gaga’s ‘Born This Way’ song mashed with Madonna’s classic ‘Express Yourself.’

If you recall, many feel ‘Born This Way’ is a rip-off of ‘Express Yourself,’ so either Madonna is officially showing Lady Gaga whose boss or just poking fun at the controversy. Madonna told ABC News earlier this year regarding ‘Born This Way’: “I thought, this is a wonderful way to redo my song. I mean, I recognized the chord changes. I thought it was… interesting.”

It’s no secret that Lady Gaga is influenced by Madonna, but did not take the rip-off accusations lightly, saying, “I’m a songwriter. I’ve written loads of music. Why would I try to put out a song and think I’m getting one over on everybody?” she told website NME last year.

We can’t wait to see what the fans think of the mashup when Madonna finally performs it. And will Mother Monster respond? Check out the mashup link in the description and let us know what you think! Be sure to subscribe to ClevverMusic for more breaking news. See ya!
