"L-U-V" Madonna? Hopefully you'll feel that way about her supposed new track "Give Me All Your Love," which now has leaked in what sounds like its entirety.
Snippets of the pop song have been circulating on the Web, and by Tuesday the song was a trending topic, reports Billboard. It may also be the first single off the superstar's upcoming 12th studio album, expected to hit in spring 2012.
Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. are expected to be on the actual release, which has led some to suspect that what we've been listening to is just a demo. The intro, "L-U-V Madonna/Y-O-U You wanna?" calls to mind the peppiest cheerleader chant imaginable before you fall into an irresistibly catchy track.

Looks like ‘80s-style clothing isn’t Lola’s only passion.
Madonna’s daughter Lourdes Leon recently wrote about her obsession with “Harry Potter” and dying her hair on her Material World blog, which is also the site for the Material Girl clothing collection she launched with her mom in August.
“I’m in L.A right now hanging out with my friend, we’re both sitting on my bed trying to find something cute to say, in case you all haven’t noticed I don’t spew rainbows, its more like frogs and stuff,” she wrote before declaring her love for J.K. Rowling’s best-selling series.

The children of Malawi have the strength to save the country, “they just need to be given the tools,” Madonna wrote in her blog Monday. The singer traveled to Malawi this week to begin laying a foundation - literally - for the Raising Malawi Academy for Girls.
“Tomorrow the brick I will lay is not just the bedrock to a school - it is the foundation for our shared future,” she wrote.
The academy, funded by Madonna’s charity, will “educate, protect and empower 450 young girls who are Malawi’s hope for the future.”
Madonna’s four children, two of which she adopted from Malawi, were with her.

Like a Twitter account, an iPhone app is a celebrity (or faux-celebrity) must-have.
Within the past year, there's been a slew of them: Diddy's app lets you know where he likes to eat; rapper Soulja Boy Tell ‘Em's app lets the user remix his songs; T-Pain's gives the gift of Auto-Tune and Britney Spears’s “It’s Britney!” app blurts out an expletive when you shake it.
Thrilling stuff, but the Material Girl's new official iPhone app just may top them all. FULL POST
