The Daily Mail is reporting today that Simon Cowell has persuaded her to perform at this year's X Factor final on December 13th. Would be great as promotion for a comeback but I hope she doesn't!

I would love it if its for new material. I can't think what else she could perform. Unless she was to do a medley. Its been ages since Madonna was performing on British tv. X Factor would be the perfect return.

This has been speculated so many times before, but I just can't see it happening. As far as I'm aware, she's avoided all of these 'talent' shows so far (I think she thinks they're beneath her!) so why would she do it now? But it would be good to see her performing on British TV again. When was the last time? Promoting COADF?

Yeah I think X Factor is the wrong choice but sometimes she does surprising things, remember when she was on that divorce/marriage game show type-thing?!

I have the vaguest memory of that, was that in the US? I can't remember why she was there though!

From reading the article it sounds pretty legit. You can never trust Cowell though. He sends fake stories to the press like its a sport.

Neither can I! I think it was around the time of the divorce from Guy?

I don't like X Factor too much, but there are a limited number of shows available to promote new music now. It's always great to see her perform.
She has spoken out against these type of talent shows, but she was also on a talent show hosted by Missy Elliott in the US where she was on briefly to give advice to the contestants so I guess she's not totally against them.
But it seems too early to promote the new single/album. I though the album wasn't coming out until the spring of 2015, but maybe a single is coming the end of this year?

Surely many of Madonna's fans would be watching Strictly? A far better platform for talent like Madonna than XF.

ignoring the rumours....FACT - SSION is directing the next video...tomorrow/Friday in Kansas City...earleir this week he posted on Instagram women in their late 30/40s/50s to be apart of the video...with a picture of Desperate Housewives cast.

I for one cannot wait! So i reckon this may indeed be a surprise winter release...late October filmed video.... and plus album art is usually done around the time of the first video so it makes sense.

As for X Factor...she denied any access to it when it was popular! So why would she now? Besides I think actually she should wait a bit just let the first single do it by itself....maybe radio interview but I for one just cannot wait for new visuals and sounds.

Speaking of which I did wish Disclosure worked with M...their new song with Mary J Blige is beautiful! I reckon they may do remixes for her however.

But Diplo/Blood Diamonds/Ariel Rechtshaid/Dj Dahi/Avicii/Martin Kaizenbaum/ should be a eclect mix...and I think that Madonna with Diplo will be the main producer or maybe with all these guys Madonna herself will be the main album producer (which I would say is about time! she has executive produced every album since True Blue anyway!)

So it is... I have no idea whatsoever though.
Perhaps people have realised what a great album it is!

Apparently it's 99p on goggle play.

A very good buy if you don't have one of her great albums. Anyone out there that does not have a copy get it you will not be disappointed.

It is great seeing True Blue re-enter the UK top 40 hope that gets a mention on Radio 1 as they do a countdown they sometimes mention surprise entries as well as the top 5 releases

It is signature and of course a classic album

a great year for re-entries with Kate Bush now Madonna....nice treat!

And yes video shoots, album artwork shoots are all going on across the next few weeks by what i have seen teased so yeah it makes sense if the album is to be ready for spring next year she has been seen doing exercises too in prep i would presume for the video cannot wait to see and hear

W.E is on British TV tonight. Sky viewers can watch it on the Sony channel 157. I'm currently watching as I've yet to see it

It got a lot of criticism, but it's really not that bad. I enjoyed it. Actually, the two movies she directed are much better than the ones she acted in. I know it's an unpopular opinion but I really hope she keeps directing.

slightly off topic, but a true story. a guy commented on leaving the establishment that i work in and had a general rant about 90% of that the product we deliver is crap. then he progressed onto the entertainment industry in general and eventually said that "madonna has been around 30 years and has never made a decent record". the two members of staff assumed i was going to hit the roof, but i just couldn't be bothered to respond to such inaccurate nonsense and i have to think of my professional position.

one of the girls said that she was a very rich lady, but me and the other member of staff just repeatedly answered all of his statements with "its all down to personal taste". he left shortly after he conceded that we had no interest in his opinion whatsoever, because in the end all three of us just said the same line over and over. people like that really do annoy me though, opinion is one thing, but he was talking as if everything everything he was saying was fact. sorry, but i just had to share my experience.

good to see a classic madge album back in the charts. "true blue" is my favourite out of her first three albums.

I was listening to absolute 80's yesterday, they finished playing Like A Prayer and the DJ said "stay tuned for big Madonna news with us in a few weeks".

Possible promo concert that they have some tickets for?
