Madonna was understandably livid when several of her unfinished songs leaked on the Internet.
But as we all know, Madge is a fighter.
That's why she chose to hit back by whipping those tracks into shape and putting them out the way she intended!

Well, maybe not quite how she intended.
Her Madgesty says that she had a master plan for Rebel Heart that the song leaks threw into a cocked hat. She said:
"Originally I wanted to put everything out together. I have an overabundance of songs, and actually, the reason I wanted to call the record Rebel Heart was because I felt like it explored two very distinct sides of my personality. The rebellious, renegade side of me, and the romantic side of me. In my mind, it was almost like I wanted to do a two-record set. So you get this chunk of songs, and that chunk of songs. That was my original goal. But then all the demos leaked and I can't really go down that road anymore, so I put out (the six songs) first and then, I think a few more songs are going to come out during the time of the Grammys. Then the rest of the album will just come out together (in March), and they'll just get my rebellious and romantic side all mixed in together."
Ooh, around the time of the Grammys?? That can't be a coincidence that she mentioned that for her timeline.
Might we get a live premiere on music's biggest award show?? When asked, Madonna said:
"That's possibly something that's gonna happen."
AMAZING! We can't wait to see these new songs LIVE!
But we will, because unlike whoever leaked those tracks, we are True Blue fans!
