Price put on priceless Madonna songs
Gonna have a celebration? All across the nation? Not gonna happen — unless you’re willing to fork over a truckload of money to the original Material Girl. In an interview that aired Friday on New York’s Z100-FM, to promote the release of her forthcoming album, Hard Candy (due April 29), Madonna hinted that fans may have heard “Like A Virgin,” live for the very last time.
”I’m not sure I can sing ‘Holiday’ or ‘Like A Virgin’ ever again,” said the singer, who then quickly amended her statement upon recognizing the opportunity to advance from ridiculously rich to absurdly wealthy. ”I just can’t — unless someone paid me like $30 million or something.” Well gosh, I guess I can just go ahead and cancel this gazillion dollar check, then. Who knew Madonna came so cheap? This holiday’s more affordable than the Budget Inn.
(Here’s a photo of Madonna at 1985’s Live Aid concert, where she sang “Holiday,” presumably for free, along with “Into the Groove.”)
How much would you pay to hear Madonna’s classics live? Did you know you could have Tara Reid, Michael Bolton, Nick Lachey, AND Mariah Carey to come to your birthday party, all for less than 3.5 million dollars?! And hey, I bet for an extra 20 bucks you could convince Tara to sing “Like A Virgin.”
