On May 20 2012, Madonna was asked what she would do if she were the President of the United States for one day, and she replied:

“You can’t really change much in one day. I think I would like to be president for a longer time. I wouldn’t spend as much money for weapons of mass destruction but instead for education and art.”

She was also asked if it is more difficult to become famous or maintain fame:

“It’s harder to stay famous than become famous. I don’t think there’s a rule for staying successful. You have to really love what you’re doing. You have to feed your soul with ideas and you’re not allowed to stop growing as a human. That’s what helps to create art. When it comes to my work I don’t take anything for granted.”

On April 9 2012, Avicii released the Ultra Music Fest Remix of Girl Gone Wild.  The remix kept all of Madonna’s original vocals, but the Swedish hitmaker lent his signature electro sounds to the back beat of the UMF Mix version. While Madonna’s album version of Girl Gone Wild was danceable as is, the revamped Avicii version made the song into an all-out party, with intense synth and Eurodance beats added to the MDNA track.
