So. Madonna has been in the studio. This is fact. As it happens, she's been in several recording studios. An album is being made.
What if Madonna's studio adventures were not quite what we were allowing ourselves to believe?
What if it was true that Madonna had been in the studio working on music, and what if it's also true that Madonna may have been recording some tracks for herself, but what if most of that material was for a different girl?
What if Madonna was taking an extremely hands on role in executive producing an album for someone else?
What if Madonna was on the verge of helping to launch a new artist?
What if that artist was directly connected to Madonna?
What if the song Diplo mentioned — 'Bitch, I'm Madonna' — was actually performed not by Madonna, but by one of the few other people on the planet who could conceivably pull off such a song title?
What if Diplo's statement that "I met Madonna because of her kids" is quite a significant clue?
WHAT IF LOURDES IS ABOUT TO EXPLODE OUT OF NOWHERE AS THE GREATEST POPSTAR THE WORLD HAS EVER SEEN?
We'll just leave that thought there.
