Madonna, Madonna, Madonna!

Madonna's new album is called 'Licorice' and it will be released in late April. This will be her eleventh studio album, the follow up to 2005's 'Confessions On A Dancefloor'; her electro-Clash/nu-disco album which was a bit late to the party but admittedly grew on me after a few spins.

'Licorice' will also be Madge's final record for Warner Brothers. Madge was signed by Seymour Stein back when it was Sire and she was bro's with whats-her-face who was recently beaten to death with a yoga stick.

The NME suggests her new platter, 'Licorice', will be a "dance record with a hip-hop edge" (shudder), "reflected by Madonna's collaborations with Kanye West and Pharrell Williams". When I hear 'dance record with a hip-hop edge' I think C&C Music Factory. And I don't want to think C&C Music Factory.

Meanwhile, Madonna is suing because her upper West Side co-op allegedly won't let her expand her material world into a neighbouring apartment.

Madge filed a summons in Manhattan Supreme Court against the board and management company at her Central Park West pad, a luxury building where she already owns a 6,000- square-foot duplex with its own gym and beauty salon.

The two-page summons accuses the co-op board and Midboro Management of breach of contract for allegedly holding up the sale of Julie Clark Thayer's seventh-floor apartment and orders the transfer of 868 co-op shares to the singer. I have no idea who Julie Clark Thayer is but the Daily News namechecks her so I guess she's just some rich bitch.

Madonna moved into the building overlooking Central Park after she was rejected by the board at the San Remo in 1985. Ya heard?
