M.I.A: 'Madonna Rejected Song For MDNA LP'
Rapper reveals how Madge "gave back" track Sexodus...
The rapper - who worked with the Queen of Pop on Give Me All Your Luvin' - has told The Guardian that Madge turned down her song Sexodus for her MDNA album.
Speaking of the song, M.I.A. told the newspaper: "I actually played that song to Madonna when I wrote it. [I] said, 'Oh, you can have this.' She gave it back to me."
Reminiscing about the moment when she asked Madonna what you do "when you have it all", she replied: "So I was like, what d'you do? And she said, 'You spend it!' And I said, no, I don't think that's the right answer."
When asked if her answer had changed her impression of Madge, M.I.A. said: "No, because Madonna is true to Madonna. She always said she was a material girl."
After Madonna snubbed Sexodus, the track now features on M.I.A's new LP Matangi as a collaboration with The Weeknd.
Matangi is due for release in the UK on November 4.
