Madonna laments ‘artistic rape’

Madonna is upset unmastered songs from her new album have leaked onto the Internet.

The Grammy Award-winning pop icon is currently working on her 13th studio album.

Unfinished demos from the forthcoming offering were leaked onto the Internet this week and Madonna is incensed over the violation of privacy.

“This is artistic rape!” she wrote in an Instagram post on Wednesday, which has since been deleted. "These are early leaked demos, half of which won't even make it on my album. The other half have changed and evolved. This is a form of terrorism. Wtf!!!! Why do people want to destroy artistic process??? Why steal? Why not give me the opportunity to finish and give you my very best?"

Madonna closed out the angry dialogue on a lighter note by thanking her fans.

The star appreciates those who have remained loyal to her work over the years.

“Thank you for not listening! Thank you for your loyalty! Thank you for waiting and if you have heard please know they are unfinished demos stolen long ago and not ready to be presented to the world,” she wrote in another Instagram post.

The 56-year-old Material Girl last travelled internationally performing shows on her The MDNA Tour in 2012.

And a recent report claims Madonna is in early talks to start touring again next year, after she releases her fresh record.

“This is going to be one very special tour. Madonna wants to pull out all the stops, especially because it is 30 years since the Virgin Tour,” a source told British newspaper The Mirror recently.

“Like her 2012 MDNA tour, where she played 88 dates in places including Europe, South America and Asia, Madge will be travelling the world. Once the new record is finished she can concentrate on the concerts.”
