AMP Music Minute: Madonna P.O’ed at M.I.A., Kanye West To Unveil New Line In Paris And Katy Perry’s “Complete Confection”

[photogallerylink id=144305 align=left]It’s clear Madonna worked hard on her performance at the Super Bowl Halftime show. Countless hours and rehearsals that all led up to a live national event that was supposed to celebrate how awesome Madonna still is. But then here comes underground sensation, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]M.I.A.[/lastfm] flipping the bird right in the middle of her near flawless (we saw you slip off that bleacher!) set!
The nerve!
It should come as no surprise that Madge is a bit P.O.’ed about the whole thing. Her publicist issued a statement saying quite shortly, “It was not rehearsed or planned. No comment from Madonna.” A source close to M.I.A. came to the Sri Lankan singer’s defense sayingshe wasn’t thinking. She was caught in the moment and she’s incredibly sorry.”
But sources claiming they know Madonna reveal the pop diva was not in the least bit sympathetic “Madonna wasn’t impressed. She prides herself on professionalism. M.I.A did nothing similar in rehearsals. Nobody knew she was going to pull this stunt.”
Truth is, it’s likely Madonna is more mad that M.I.A. stole the spotlight from her performance. The source continued, “Madonna wanted to put on a world-beating performance. But everyone ended up talking about this girl’s middle finger.”
True story, here we are…talking about her middle finger…
Luckily, this morning Madonna stopped in to talk with Carson and here’s her side of the story!

[photogallerylink id=121086 align=right]Remember that time Kanye West was a fashion designer? Well it’s happening again!

The Chicago bred rapper is back to the drawing board and about to unveil his latest women’s wear collection at Paris Fashion Week. He and his models hit the runway on March 6th.

While his women’s line debut last year drew an A-List audience, his garments received mixed reviews. Last time, Ye’ asked his critics to go easy on his collection, claiming he put his all into it, and that it was his first sincere attempt at designing. This time isn’t isn’t asking much but for a fair shot at this designing thing.

I know I’d rock a Yeezy scarf.

Her smash 2010 release Teenage Dream has been so very good to Katy. Producing 6 number one hits now that her latest “The One That Got Away” finally crept all the way up the charts and breaking [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Michael Jackson[/lastfm]’s Bad record (no big).

So it’s been hard for her to let go of even the songs that didn’t make the final ct of the album. Luckily she didn’t have to let go of them for long because she is bringing them to the light with her new album Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection. This anthology of teenage dreaming will feature the 12 original tracks from the album as well as three brand new, never-before-heard songs.

Her producer, Tricky Stewart, clued us in to the fact that Katy was reworking some songs that never made it as well as remixing ones we already knew. Confection will also include “E.T.” with Kanye West and “T.G.I.F” with [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Missy Elliot[/lastfm]. This is the complete story of ‘Teenage Dream,” Perry said in a statement. “It was an incredible honor to tie the King of Pop’s Billboard Hot 100 record, but I’m moving forward and had a few things left to get off my chest. So this is the complete special edition of my album for my fans.”

Katy Perry will release Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection on March 27th.
