Madonna On “Rebel Heart” Leak: Unspeakably Embarassing


The "Autotune Baby" singer says she felt a knot in her stomach regarding the entire "Rebel Heart" leak and release.

“I mean, it’s a process. Music is really personal to me. A lot of the stuff is out there that I had no intention of ever finishing. They’re, like, scribbles on a pad. You know what I mean? It’s unspeakably embarrassing.”

Madonna handled the unfathomable "artistic rape" like a champ, releasing the record and performing the album's chosen singles like nothing horrific happened previously.

"In terms of sounds, honestly the way that I approached this record was first to write great songs. I wanted to be able to write songs that... if all the electricity went out I could still sit and strum a guitar and sing the song."
