Madonna stops by ''CSI'' -- The pop legend will preview her new album on CBS' flagship show

A lot has happened since Madonna’s been away. For one thing, in the two-plus years since her last album, even superstars like U2 are showcasing new songs on TV dramas (see The O.C.). So, Madge being Madge, she’s taking the trend to a new level. The producers of CSI: Miami and CSI: NY paid her to preview a dance song from her upcoming album, Confessions on a Dance Floor, during two special crossover episodes. ”Hung Up” will play at a pivotal moment on Miami Nov. 7: A serial killer literally crashes into Miami (his plane takes a nosedive on a Florida turnpike) and Lt. Horatio Caine (David Caruso) discovers he’s a fugitive from New York. Caine will then travel to New York Nov. 9, where he and Det. Mac Taylor (Gary Sinise) follow the clues to a party — and a different mix of Madonna’s tune. ”We wanted the song to be relevant to what’s going on,” says Miami exec producer Ann Donahue. ”The killer is hung up on the daughters of a wealthy family and the reason he keeps killing is because the victims are stand-ins for these girls.” First motherhood, then yoga, then religion, now CBS. Can we officially agree that Madonna is middle-aged?
