Michael Bolton Slams Madonna, Discusses Leeching Off Of Working With Lady GaGa

By now everyone likely knows Michael Bolton's upcoming album (out Sept. 21) has a collaboration with Lady GaGa titled "Murder My Heart."

Love how in the below quote from Bolton—where he talks about his label setting her up for a studio session with GaGa before she became famous—he manages to not-so-subtly trash Madonna.
"...I realized she was not only about to have a big hit record but Gaga was a superstar about to launch—energy was so high and her focus excited me," he said. "She reminded me of a young Madonna—with more exuberance and emphasis on the art rather than the marketing."
Only a true craftsman like Michael Bolton could get away with saying this!

Here's "Murder My Heart":
