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":

    Dear Mr. Bolton -

    Remind me again exactly where the art is in Lady Gaga and where the marketing isn't.

    Thanks.

    I really agree with Bolton's assessment of Gaga. She's got more talent and exuberance in her cock than in any shriveled, dusty inch of Ye Olde Vampyre.

    The song really isn't that bad, even by Michael Bolton standards.

    I think Madonna would be honored to be trashed by the likes of Michael Bolton. What a cheeseball sellout. Yuck.
