I'm sure Brian Buzzini was a lot of people's first crush, but The Smoking Nun's Chuck Taylor (formerly the ultimate singles reviewer at Billboard, where he was pop music's BFF) outdoes himself with this tribute.

With thanks to Keith (follow him on Twitter): Liz Rosenberg and Interscope (Warner who?) have dropped an info-packed press release on all of Madonna's accomplishments of the week: Madonna by the numbers!
Most interesting to me:
David Guetta, in a live chat with Billboard.com's Keith Caulfield, denies rumors that he's working on Madonna's new album or has done anything other than "Revolver." Suffer or rejoice, as you like...
In the past year, my pal Simon Curtis has seen his debut album 8Bit Heart downloaded 150,000+ times and has attracted 20,000+ Twitter stalkers. Now, he's seeing his first Billboard feature and unleasing a mega-mix of four upcoming tracks from his second album, RΔ: "Don't Dance," "Enemy," "Pit of Vipers" and "Laser Guns Up."
And don't cross him. If you mess with Taylor Swift, you get a charming, bittersweet, countrified power pop in the chops; but if you piss off Curtis, you get a foot-tapping dose of sonic cyanide.
