Elle Ciccone: US versus UK: US wins!
Ummm-hmmm, I am a one-stop Madonna Candy shop:
See Worrapalova for the UK version which is sort of boring. The US one is sort of - wot? - Mary Poppins/Eliza Doolittle? See Absolutement Madonna for a full set of photos and you can watch her shooting the cover here.
Meanwhile, the video for 4 Minutes is quite good even if it doesn't have enough dancing. I don't like the rotting bodies, but I do like her look and the sly nod to the Janet Superbowl controversy when Justin takes off her corset. And yes, she looks totally FIERCE.
The Junkie XL remix of 4 Minutes is fantastic and very Stuart Pricey. Digital Eargasm has that version and Le Jukeblog de Benzen has a shorter variation on it. If you feel it, it must be real.
Other freebies: Absolutement Madonna has an unreleased longer version of Music. Arjanwrites has one of the first reviews of Hard Candy that does not seem like a glowing press release. Sounds like it is a mix of good and bad.
On a final note, Stuart Price must be too busy to remix her new single because he is producing the new albums by Keane and The Killers!
