Though Madonna and Guy Richie have been done for a while, it appears the Material Girl isn’t quite over her split with the action director. On two tracks from ‘MDNA,’ Madge addresses her failed marriage — and fires some serious shots at her ex.
The first nudge to Richie is in the song ‘I Don’t Give A … ,’ which also features Nicki Minaj. Madonna sings, “I tried to be a good girl / I tried to be your wife / Diminished myself / And I swallowed my light / I tried to become all / That you expect of me / And if it was a failure / I don’t give a …” Well, Madge, if you’re still talking about it, we think you do give one!
Madonna takes it even further in the track ‘Bang Bang,’ an ode to bringing a lover to a violent end — sounds like some of Richie’s movies! “Bang bang, shot you dead / Shot my lover in the head / Now my lover is dead / And I have no regrets / He deserved it / And I’m going straight to hell / And I got a lot of friends there / And if I see that b—- in hell / I’m gonna shoot him in the head again / Cuz I want to see him die / Over and over.”
The tracks were revealed in a private listening party last night in New York City, the New York Post reports. However, in true mysterious Madge fashion, the ‘Give Me All Your Luvin” singer wouldn’t confirm nor deny the inspiration behind the songs.
Madonna’s longtime publicist, Liz Rosenberg, told Page Six, “I have not heard Madonna explain whether the lyrics are autobiographical or not. She doesn’t often explain lyrics to her songs, and she did have a few writing collaborators.” Rosenberg added, “I can only confirm that the response from the music press who heard the album was really exciting. They seemed to love it.”
We can’t wait to hear it! Maybe Richie will respond with a look-alike in one of his movies?
