M.D.N.A.! Translated, this is Madonna, minus two vowels and one N, thus allowing for clever science wordplay, or maybe some confusion with MNDR? Or MDMA? Maybe everyone who is featured on the album will be going by some sort of M abbreve? M.I.A. will reportedly contribute to the album’s first single, “Give Me All Your Love,” along with Nicki Minaj, who we guess would go by MRR. Final theory: Madonna’s latest phase involves communication by initial only (her Wallis Simpson movie, W. E., is in wide release come February). MDNA is due in March.
