For the review of the first 6 tracks, see REVIEW: Madonna, Rebel Heart (Part 1)

By now you know the deal. Dozens of demos from Madonna's upcoming 13th album, then called
Iconic, famously leaked just a week before Christmas and flooded the internet. Team Madonna quickly went into high gear finishing 6 of the songs, mastering them and releasing them via iTunes. Within the hour, the songs dominated the Top 10 of the iTunes chart and sent the pre-order of the album, now renamed Rebel Heart straight to #1 in 47 countries. 

We previously reviewed the first 6 songs of Rebel Heart, and now, the day after her Grammy performance of Living For Love (which was the most watched performance of the night) we have 3 more officially released tracks from Rebel Heart.

57th Annual Grammy Awards Wrap-Up (2015)

2015 Grammy Awards Wrap-Up

2015 Grammys Wrap Up (57th Annual Grammy Awards)
57th Annual Grammy Awards Wrap Up (2015)

The 57th annual Grammy Awards were Sunday night and as always, music's biggest night was one to watch. While many of the performers decided to do a ballad (snooze), there were some definite highlights including Madonna (of course), Annie LennoxKaty Perry and Kanye West. They packed in almost 30 performances while giving away (seemingly) 10 awards. Which would normally be great except for the fact that many of the performers gave amazingly dull performances.

Pop Culture Whore was super busy on Twitter where we live tweeted the first two hours of the event before finally giving up.

We won't even discuss Beck winning because we didn't realize Beck has had an album out since 1994.

Madonna Releases Living For Love Video

Madonna Releases Living For Love Music Video

Madonna Releases Living For Love Music Video
After more than 30 years of pioneering, that doesn't seem to be stopping anytime soon. Madonna debuted her newest music video Living For Love on the Snapchat app. It is the first music video to debut on the popular application. Yesterday, the music video was released to Vevo and YouTube, where it has garnered almost 2 million views already.

The video for Living For Love, the first single off of the upcoming Rebel Heart  album, finds Madonna back in full form as she becomes the matador of an army of men dressed as bulls. Creative, inventive, action packed and full of dancing, it's the Madonna video we've been waiting for.

Check out the music video for Living For Love off of Rebel Heart (out March 10th, 2015) below and pre-order Rebel Heart on iTunes!

Madonna, Rebel Heart (Part 1) Review

A track by track review of Madonna's Rebel Heart album

Madonna, Rebel Heart (track by track review)
By now you've heard the story. The Queen of Pop's upcoming 13th album, which she has been working on and teasing us about over the last year, was leaked. The 13 songs were demo versions Madonna had recorded and many of them weren't to make the final album, then called Iconic. But they were leaked anyway.
The original plan was to release the first single, Living for Love, on Valentine's Day, followed by the video, with the album coming out in March. The leak of the demos of Iconic changed all that. The Madonna camp jumped into gear and finalized six songs, rushing them for release on iTunes Friday night. This makes up the first part of the album, now called Rebel Heart. Six more songs will be released February 9th, 2015 with the final 7 tracks (completing the Rebel Heart album) being released March 10, 2015
