iTunes history made with pre-sales of Madonna's 'MDNA'
The pop legend scores the biggest day of pre-orders ever for her 12th album
Her label Interscope confirmed the news and relayed a message from Madonna, in which she said: "Thanks for all the L-U-V!! from around the world." 'MDNA' is now Number One in the pre-order charts on iTunes in 50 countries across the world. Madonna releases 'MDNA' on March 26. It is her 12th studio effort and is the follow-up to her 2008 record 'Hard Candy'.
Earlier today Madonna criticised MIA for flipping the middle finger during her Super Bowl performance on Sunday (February 5) though did say that the move was "punk rock".
Madonna admitted that she did not find out about the incident until after she'd left the stadium and added that she "wasn't happy about it". Speaking this morning (February 10) on KISS FM, Madonna said: "To tell you the truth, I didn't even know about. I didn't find out until I left. I found out about it in the elevator to get to the car and get to the airport. I wasn't happy about it. I know it's kind of punk rock and everything, but to me, there was such a feeling of love and good energy and positivity, and it just seemed negative."
Madonna will play two UK stadium shows this summer, performing at London's Hyde Park on July 17 and Edinburgh's Murrayfield Stadium on July 21.
