Was it though? That always felt like The Sun making a story out of a song title. How many times have we read a story from them about A List singer's new comeback single and the source is a song title that fans discovered on ASCAP or was name-dropped by a co-writer in a casual interview.
Are there different versions of it on the various Fever variants then? I didn’t know that.
At no point in White Diamond did they say "and this was supposed to be a double A-side with "Come into My World"".
I don't think he meant Kylie talked about it on White Diamond.
And therefore, it's an example of a song title becoming known about and the press making a story out of it.
Didn't White Diamond have excertps of other unreleased songs as well? I don't remember which ones, maybe Lose Control?
"I don't think Madonna has ever given a song to another artist," Kylie.
I don't think we can just blame the press as this is a direct Kylie quote. Sounds like Kylie's team started talking about this song, it didn't pan out in 2002 for whatever reason but it was used in 2007.
And the story was thus "it's a double A-side on the next single release". It was the press who said that, not Kylie, Madonna, or either of their teams. I'm not disputing that Madonna giving Kylie a song isn't newsworthy, I just have never been convinced that the reporting of it was not embellished.
