After collaborating with her during her time on the X Factor, many believed Will. I.Am was to sign Cher Lloyd, in a bid to launch her career Stateside.

However, as we now know, it was Simon Cowell who was to take Lloyd under his wing, releasing her debut album ‘Sticks & Stones‘ in the UK last year, and introducing her to Epic exec LA Reid who signed her to his label shortly after.

Now, Will has criticized Simon’s handling of Cher, belittling her efforts in music.

Today brings with it the global release of Madonna‘s twelfth studio album, ‘MDNA’.

Given the length and breath of the Material Girl’s success, the LP’s arrival has been a three month long “event”. One which saw the 53 year old rock the Super Bowl, release singles ‘Give Me All Your Luvin” and ‘Girl Gone Wild’ (along with their accompanying videos), and announce a world tour.

Together, these have proved a potent potion for whipping up excitement amongst fans. Indeed, as at writing ‘MDNA’ sits at #1 on iTunes tally’s in a whopping 17 countries.

And, yet there remain certain pockets of press who simply aren’t swallowing her youth-soaked sing-a-long songs. Many have christened such material beneath her and not at all what she she should be serving up at this stage of her career.

So, ever keen to pierce through the smoke and mirrors, we want know …

Your thoughts?

If you thought Azealia Banks would be here today and gone tomorrow, think again.

For, in further bid to showcase her skills, she releases ‘F*ck Up The Fun‘, a cut  aimed at Rap upstart Iggy Azalea.

The pair, with eerily similar names, have been feuding since Azealia criticized XXL Mag for featuring Azalea on their 2012 Freshman list, after spewing an allegedly racist line in 2011’s ‘D.R.U.G.S’.
