W.E. Nominated For 2 Golden Globes

Madonna's next foray into film direction, the royal love story "W.E.", picked up a pair of Golden Globe nominations Thursday morning, including best original score and best original song, for the star's new track "Masterpiece."

The singer's slowed-down, moody ballad features simplified production reminiscent of her sound in the 1990s, while the lyrics lean on the emotional side and tie into the film's love story. "And I'm right by your side," Maonna sings in the chorus. "Even deep in the night, I stand in front of the masterpiece."



Yesss :wub:

Madonna’s Latest Track From Forthcoming Album Is Revealed

Little by little, Madonna fans are learning the titles of tracks that will reportedly be found on the singer’s highly-anticipated forthcoming album, slated for release next year.

This week, Madonnarama, a large fan site dedicated to all things Madonna, revealed the name of another track that will be supposedly be included on the pop singer’s upcoming collection of tune. ‘Birthday Song’ is said to be a “fun, ultra-catchy pop song,” which was produced by William Orbit.

‘Birthday Song’ is also rumored to be one of the duets that will be featured on the album. The album is set to have multiple duets, including the song ‘Gimme All Your Luvin” which finds Madge collaborating with M.I.A. and Nicki Minaj. No word yet as to which artist will appear on ‘Birthday Song.’

Previously announced tracks on the new album will include ‘Gimme All Your Luvin’,’ ‘Masterpiece,’ ‘Bang Bang,’ ‘Girls Gone Wild’ and ‘Turn Up the Radio.’

Madonna fans will hopefully get a sneak peak at the singer performing some of these new tracks when she plays the half-time show during the Super Bowl in 2012. While the singer has not confirmed any particular set list, reports are saying that she will play ‘Gimme All Your Luvin’ with Minaj and M.I.A., as well as her classic hits ‘Vogue,’ ‘Holiday,’ ‘Ray of Light’ and ‘Music.’

Rapper 50 Cent went into a tirade on his Twitter account after his label, Interscope Records, mistakenly released the cover art to his single, ‘Girls Go Wild,’ without his permission. This seems like an odd move on Interscope’s part considering that he is currently promoting music from his new mixtape ‘The Big 10.’

Nevertheless, Fiddy jumped on Twitter on Tuesday (Dec. 13) and posted, “Man, interscope put out the single art saying its coming out on the [Dec. 31st] but its not coming out. I’m not putting my album out till we are all on the same page.” He then goes on to tweet, “This is nuts to me. I try to do everything I can to keep my cool you know what? If they don’t care I don’t care I’m putting out a video now.”

In another strange twist, Madonna has just secured a deal with Interscope Records and is releasing a song called ‘Girls Gone Wild,’ which has a nearly identical title to 50 Cent’s ‘Girls Go Wild.’ WTF?

“These people are gonna make [me] kill one of them,” 50 vented. “Now madonna’s single is called GIRLS GONE WILD. This is some bull s–t.”

Now the Internet is in a tizzy over a possible music war between 50 Cent and Madonna. We don’t know what the heck is going on, but a beef between two superstar artists on one label is bad for business.

What do you think? Who do you think will win in this battle — 50 Cent or Madonna? Tell us in the comments below.

'W.E' Composer Talks Golden Globes, Making Music With Madonna

In talking about mainstream award shows and the predictability of their annual nominees lists, the Golden Globes are often the hardest to predict in that their nominees always include a few unexpected surprises. This year, no one was perhaps more pleasantly surprised at hearing the 2012 nominations than composer Abel Korzeniowski, who scored a Best Original Score nomination for his work on "W./E.," the Madonna-directed romantic drama that has yet to be released wide in theaters.

"It’s quite difficult when a movie is not really in theaters," Korzeniowski told MTV News recently of his disbelief in being nominated. "So far we’ve had only the qualifying run which was one theater in Los Angeles so almost no one had seen the film. It was even more surprising because we have no ads anywhere, not on the Internet, not in newspapers so I thought it wouldn’t be possible."

In short: "It's a big surprise."

The Polish composer, whose most recent work was the score for "A Single Man," went on to say that becoming involved with "W./E." in the first place was an even bigger surprise.

"One day I got a call that Madonna wanted to contact me and I just couldn’t believe it. 'What do you mean Madonna? The Madonna?' She wanted to send me a script and I got it and in the script itself there were already references to my music," he recalled. "This was really flattering. Most of the time after our initial meetings we had to work on the phone, which is not ideal situation but at least when we spoke on the phone she was able to sing a little to me which was really thrilling, if you think about it. Madonna is singing my music on the phone and hearing this and she doesn’t need auto tune, it was just great."

Korzeniowski explained that this particular scoring experience, for which he employed a 60-piece orchestra and various piano, violin, cello and viola solos, as well as the appropriately anachronistic inclusion of a Sex Pistols song, was unique in that Madonna flew out to Los Angeles to work with him at his studio and he composed music on the spot.

"This was a really great adventure because basically I had to compose having her behind my back. It was a very stressful situation because it’s unusual. A lot of time it’s not such an immediate process, but at the same time it was really thrilling and it worked well. The most surprising thing about working with Madonna? Well, the tempo of work. The four months we worked together felt like the final stage of any other movie, the stage where everything speeds up and you have to work to your fullest ability. I loved it, she’s such a perfectionist and she cares about every little detail, how it affects the story and I think this was the biggest thrill and challenge."
