No mermaids for Madonna
It was just a matter of hours since the quotes by indie singer and songwriter Ariel Pink were published on Australian music website FastLouder.com and made their way through the Madonna community, and we got to hear the other side of the story straight from the horse’s mouth.
In his interview Pink – who coincidentially has a new work coming out in November – said Interscope were calling him to help write Madonna’s record – and quite a few non-flattering remarks on the quality of Madonna’s records that – according to his quotes – “it’s been a downward slide” since the First Album.
They need something edgy. They need songwriting. She can’t just have her Avicii, her producers or whatever, come up with a new techno jam for her to gyrate to and pretend that she’s 20 years old. They actually need songs. I’m partly responsible for that return-to-values thing.
Madonna’s manager Guy Oseary had some clear words on the story from his Twitter:
