Madonna: Album Leak “is a form of Terrorism.”

The 56th GRAMMY Awards - Arrivals

Madonna might be having a rough week, but c’mon…

As we reported yesterday, Madonna’s seemed to be very diplomatic and level-headed about her album having leaked months before its release. The 56-year-old singer dismissed leaked audio on Instagram, noting that the tracks were “unfinished demos stolen long ago.” She also said that the tracks “are not ready to be presented to the world” and thanking fans for respecting this breach.

Madonna was doing SO WELL until she wrote a follow-up Instagram post (which has since been deleted), with a message that said:

“This is artistic rape!! These are early leaked demo’s half of which wont even make it on my album the other half have changed and evolved.”

“This is a form of terrorism,” she went on. “Wtf!!!! Why do people want to destroy artistic process??? Why steal? Why not give me the opportunity to finish and give you my very best?”

A form of terrorism? Artistic rape? This is where someone as huge and as celebrated as Madonna kind of loses perspective. I understand how frustrating a leak would be, but Madonna- who has been active politically and altruistically- should know better than to throw around those kinds of words.

54th 'Jazz A Juan' Festival - Day 8

Steve Wonder has another thing to sing about!

The pop star welcomed his NINTH child into the world today; his second child with girlfriend Tomeeka Robyn Bracy. Us Weekly confirms that the little girl is healthy and that the baby is named Nia, alluding to “purpose,” one of the seven principles of Kwanzaa.

Wonder, 64, has seven other kids from previous relationships, and Wonder confirmed that he and his girlfriend were expecting another child during an appearance on The View last month. Wonder joked, “I got, how many, 22 kids?” before clarifying, “It’s not true. The truth is we’re going to have a wonderful daughter, born in December, [and her] name is going to be Nia, which is ‘purpose.'”

Aww, I love that he has a sense of humor about his kiddies, and the name is personal to Wonder’s heart.  Congrats Stevie Wonder!

Taylor Swift Talks Spotify

Z100's Jingle Ball 2014

Taylor Swift knows how to take a stand.

It’s probably easy for her to do, as she’s basically the world’s biggest pop star AND first female artist to have back-to-back No. 1 singles on Billboard‘s Hot 100 (“Shake It Off” and “Blank Space,” if you’ve been living under a rock the last two months). But the fact is, it was a risky decision NOT to stream 1989 on Spotify, which is now the most popular listening service on the web.  Her controversial action has become a bastion in the debate over fair royalties during the digital age.

“I didn’t think that it would be shocking to anyone,” says Swift via The Hollywood Reporter. “With as many ways as artists are personalizing their musical distribution, it didn’t occur to me that this would be anything that anyone would talk about. But I could never have expected so many text messages, emails and phone calls from other artists, writers and producers saying thank you.”

I do, Taylor! I feel like royalties on your music must be the sweetest 25th birthday present of all. That being said, I also think your music should be available to the masses. Where do you, fine readers, stand on this debate?
