Madonna's people bring the hammer down
Our latest "cease and desist" comes from the material girl's peeps. Warner Brothers Records, Inc. sent us a little letter politely requesting that we take down the link to Madonna's leaked single, "Candy Shop."
Madonna's people claim this song isn't even going to be on the album. Then why do they care if it has "leaked."
Your wish is our command, Madge... the :16 seconds of your lame song have been removed from our humble little blog.
