Is Madonna's new album MDNA one giant shot at ex Guy Ritchie?
The icon's eight-year marriage to the director ended bitterly in 2008. One year later, she opened up to Rolling Stone, admitting the union was "challenging."
Had their marriage not ended, the singer said she might have "thrown [herself] off a building." That's a bit extreme, but it sounds like ending it was best.
Still, is her bitterness at Ritchie on display in her 12th album?
Madonna, who's now dating dancer Brahim Zaibat, 24, has come up with an intense set of pumping synth-pop and electronic dub-step tracks for MDNA.
The lyrics contain the really hard-hitting material, however, and not just in the cryptically titled "I F*%ked Up." There appear to be overt shots taken.
"Didn't have a prenup," she bemoans in "I Don't Give A." On the blistering "Love Spent," Madge cracks, "Would you have married me if I were poor?"
Ouch. Looks like the Queen of Pop always gets the last word. MDNA drops on Monday morning. Will you be purchasing Madonna's latest release?
