Madonna has spoken out about the reported leak of her next album, calling it “artistic rape” and “a form of terrorism”.

The singer took to Instagram to comment, writing: “This is artistic rape!! These are early leaked demo’s half of which wont 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?”.

In an earlier Instagram post, she explained that the songs that are currently online are “unfinished demos stolen long ago”. She also thanked fans for their loyalty by not listening to the tracks. The full comment reads: “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”.

The album, which is set for release in 2015, is allegedly called ‘Iconic’ or ‘Unapologetic Bitch’. Scroll down for the full, leaked tracklisting, via ONTD, which includes songs called ‘Bitch I’m Madonna’, ‘Joan Of Arc’ and ‘Unapologetic Bitch’.
