The stars didn’t quite align for David Guetta and Madonna. The music producer has revealed the Queen of Pop nixed an album collaboration after she discovered what his star sign was.
In a new interview, Guetta revealed Madonna left him during a lunch meeting about the album after she discovered he was a Scorpio.
Guetta caught Madonna’s attention when he remixed her song ‘Revolver’ in 2009, which she loved so much that she “[suggested] that I produced her next album” Guetta recounted to YouTubers McFly and Carlito.
He continued: “I arrive for lunch. We talk about everything, the music, what she wants to do with the album. Super nice. It’s just her and me. Very relaxed, very cool. We have lunch.”
Although Guetta was convinced things were going “very good” and that it was likely they’d work together on an album, astrology put a pin in their plans.
He said: “She asks me for my astrological sign. I answer her, ‘Scorpio’. Suddenly, she makes a face and she says to me, ‘I’m sorry, we’re not going to be able to work together. It was a pleasure to know you. Goodbye.’”
Although things didn’t work out with Madonna, Guetta has gone on to work with other performers including Sia, Kid Cudi, Justin Bieber and more – alongside releasing his own music.
