Madonna has yet to announce what her 12th album, scheduled for release next year, will be called, but her new single, "Give Me All Your Love," has been leaked.

With hints of what made her '80s music great and elements of current-day pop, this song may get what its title demands among diehard fans of Her Madgesty.

Some are already calling it the musical equivalent of hydrangeas, though.

Madonna and her manager, Guy Oseary, responded that the leak is merely a demo and that completed versions of her new tracks won’t be released until 2012.

Damage control? Listen to the new song below and see what you think:

Anthony Ciccone is the brother of one of the richest entertainers in history, yet his address is currently under a bridge in Traverse City, Michigan.

Madonna's sibling claims that he has been homeless for over a year since he's been out of work after he lost his last job at his father's vineyard.

How did he fall that hard in life? He says the following:

MADGE Pic

"My family turned their back on me, basically, when I was having a hard time."

"You think I haven't answered this kind of question a bazillion times - why my sister is a multibazillionarie, and I'm homeless on the street?"

"I guess it's true, never say never. This could happen to anybody. I don't have any income, I've got to go collect bottles and cans, do odd jobs."

Madonna's relationship with her brother is not explained in any detail in this article and should be explored in order to understand the situation.

But it's sad in any case.

File this under Lost Causes: The Catholic League is calling on the NFL to ban Madonna from performing at the Super Bowl, which she recently agreed to do.

Bill Donohue wrote to the NFL, saying they "would do well to drop any plans it may have about having Madonna perform during the Super Bowl." Why?

Because in 2004, the NFL invited 'N Sync's JC Chasez to sing during the halftime of the Pro Bowl, only to rescind the offer due to some suggestive lyrics.

That was JC Chasez. This is Madonna.

"The NFL cannot expect Catholics to be treated any different," the group writes. "For decades, Madonna has blatantly offended Christians, especially Catholics."

"Her offensive lyrics, lewd behavior and misappropriation of sacred symbols are reason enough. Worse, Madonna has repeatedly ridiculed the heart and soul of Christianity: Jesus, Our Blessed Mother, the Eucharist and the Crucifixion."

She also hates hydrangeas. Don't forget that.

Spoiler alert: We already know who's going to be in the Super Bowl.

Well, the halftime show anyway. Madonna will headline the extravaganza, according to SB Nation (dot) com. The 53-year-old Material Girl continues the NFL's recent tradition of recruiting musical legends to perform between halves.

Over the last 10 years, the Super Bowl halftime show has featured such artists as Prince, The Who, The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney and Bruce Springsteen.

The move toward securing older artists came in response to the outcry over the notorious Janet Jackson-Justin Timberlake "wardrobe malfunction" of 2004.

The Black Eyed Peas halftime show this year was kind of terrible, which didn't do younger artists any favors either. Anyway, Madonna will surely bring her A-game.

A cautionary note to halftime show producers, though: Do not, under any circumstances, adorn the stage with hydrangeas. Super Bowl XLVI is set for February 5.

Madonna's apology to the hydrangeas of the world was poignant and touching.

Until it wasn't. Then it got hilarious. Well played, Madge. Well. Played.

Titled "A love letter to hydrangeas," Madonna posted a video on YouTube in response to the viral clip circulating online in which the Material Girl, unaware she's being taped, hates on hydrangeas gifted her by a fan in Venice.

Watch her "apology" below ... and don't get on her bad side. Talkin' to you, Gaga.

Is Lady Gaga like a hydrangea to Madonna?

The Material Girl didn't overtly slam the current pop phenom when asked about her by a French newspaper recently, but she also didn't have much to say in the way of encouragement or appreciation for Lady Gaga.

What did Madonna say about her exactly?

"As for Lady Gaga, I have no comment to make about her obsessions having to do with me because I don't know whether her behavior is rooted in something deep and meaningful, or superficial," she reportedly told Le Soir.

Ouch. Not an insult, but far from glowing and a bit accusatory.

Back when "Born This Way" first came out, the Lady was accused more than once of ripping off Madonna's "Express Yourself." Gaga said on The Tonight Show that she had received an email from Madonna's camp in support of the song.

Madonna really likes Brahim Zaibat. Hydrangeas? Not so much.

Right before a press event for her new film W.E. at the Venice Film Festival, a fan presented the Queen of Pop with a branch of blossoming purple hydrangea.

Madonna thanked the fan, but didn't realize she was being taped when she quickly put the thing under the table, leaned over to some unknown person and said:

"I absolutely loathe hydrangeas. He obviously doesn't know that."

For real. Consider this a cautionary tale brought to you by THG and whoever filmed this incident. Don't make this same mistake, fans. You've been warned.

Brahim Zaibat has it pretty good these days.

Not only does he hook up with Madonna, she hooks him up! Madonna recently took her boyfriend and his family on a week-long vacation in Cap d'Antibes, France.

She footed the bill for Patricia Vidal, his mom, and five cousins!

Madonna, Brahim Zaibat

A source reveals: "Madonna went all out to impress Brahim Zaibat's mum and cousins. She told them all to order whatever they liked - which they couldn't believe as the bill for one meal alone came to more than a thousand pounds."

The crew apparently all went clubbing together too. Madonna certainly pulled out all the stops for her (24-year-old) man and his family!

Check out an additional pic of the couple below, along with some shots of Madonna and daughter Lourdes Leon, who sure grew up fast ...

Madonna and Brahim Zaibat haven't publicly clarified their relationship status, per se ... but they did have quite the cozy weekend together in Paris!

Her Madgesty and her reported beau, who were first linked in early 2011, were seen dancing and dining just weeks after they supposedly broke up.

The pop superstar, 52, and the French break dancer, 24, arrived in Paris on Friday and dined at The Ritz's Espadon restaurant that evening ...

On Saturday, Madonna was out on her own, flea marketing at Clignancourt's Marché aux Puces, before reuniting with Brahim Zaibat for a private dinner.

Also at the meal were Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci, who did some of the Material Girl's Sticky & Sweet tour outfits, and model Mariacarla Boscono.

But the evening didn't end there: At midnight, the pair stopped in at the VIP Club for a few hours of disco fun. These two definitely seem like an item.

Madonna and Zaibat have been linked since last year, following her split from Jesus Luz ... who's the same age as Brahim. She certainly has a type.
