Rita Ora inspired by Madonnas work ethic

A new tour will follow the album later in the year. How much involvement in the planning process do you have? 
"I'm so involved with production - it's a part of me! I re-watched In Bed With Madonna recently - I haven't seen it for ages - and literally I'm so inspired by her work ethic and how she's involved with everything. I've always been like that, but not to that extent."

Madonna gets her lawyer fees paid after VOGUE lawsuit win



A California federal judge on Monday agreed to award attorneys' fees and costs to Madonna and others after their successful defense of a copyright suit over the 1990 hit single "Vogue,".

U.S. District Judge Beverly Reid O'Connell said Madonna, producer Shep Pettibone and others were entitled to a total of $670,000 in fees and $50,055 in costs after winning a November ruling that plaintiff VMG Salsoul LLC couldn't sue over a single horn chord allegedly sampled from the 1977 disco song "Love Break".

"Having listened to the sound recordings of Chicago Bus Stop, Love Break and Vogue, the Court finds that no reasonable audience would find the sampled portions qualitatively or quantitatively significant in relation to the infringing work, nor would they recognize the appropriation, the Court finds that any sampling of the Horn Hit was de minimis or trivial."

The plaintiff alleged that it was only through new technology that the "deliberately hidden" sampling had been detected.

In march, it was reported that american recording artist Moby is being sued by VMG over alleged unlicensed sample use from 22 year old recordings.

Last Nights Party : Madonna attends THE XX show at the Armory in NYC

Where: Park Avenue Armory
Who was there: Guests included Romy Madley Croft, Oliver Sim, Jamie Smith, Jay Z, Beyonce, Madonna, Devonte Hynes, Samantha Urbani, Jessie Ware, Humberto Leon, Leandra Medine, Abie Cohen, Ethan Silverman, Molly Hawkins, Jamie Burke, and Sophie Auster.
Other details: On Saturday, The xx gave their final performance of their 10 day, 25 show run at the Park Avenue Armory, and enjoyed a special closing night party to celebrate. The band had played in a groundbreaking and critically acclaimed series of shows at the venue, allowing about 40 people per show in the large Drill Room, where a large visual installation was set up in the center. Over the course of the week, everyone from Harley Viera Newton to Kanye West attended the shows, with Madonna, Jay Z, and Beyonce at the final performance. Madonna stuck around afterwards at the after-party, joyously taking pictures in the large and elegant space with her children. After having drinks in the adjacent rooms where Blood Orange and Ethan Silverman took turns DJing, guests headed back into the drill room where they gathered around the performance area for more drinks and dancing. UK singer Jessie Ware was happy to be in town and work on her upcoming album, and was gleaming over Jamie xx's newest single "Sleep Sound," released just last week. Opening Ceremony and Kenzo's Humberto Leon spent the night hanging out with model Jamie Burke, Devonte Hynes, and the members of The xx, as expected of the eclectic tastemaker. The tall Oliver Sim was easy to spot in the crowd, and spent much of the night graciously accepting fans' photo requests with a big smile on his face. The night was a huge success, and capped off one of the most memorable events in New York in years. - source; guestofaguest.com
