Madonna Says No To David Guetta Over Astrological Conflicts
In a recent interview with YouTubers Mcfly and Carlito, David Guetta discussed working with Madonna... or rather, how he didn't work with Madonna. The "Titanium" hit-maker talked about a Grammy-winning remix he did for the singer in 2006 for her song, "Revolver." Madonna was so impressed by the remix that she wanted Guetta to produce her next album, but when the pair met up for lunch and Madonna found out Guetta was a Scorpio, she terminated their working relationship. Ouch! We guess Madonna's pretty "Hung Up" on that sort of thing. (via Radio)
