Madonna and Adele Will Team Up to Write Ballads for Old People

Put all your plans on hold and start rearranging your future schedule around the release of an entire album of "grown-up ballads" that Madonna will be writing and recording with help from a very special collaborator (and the Super Bowl co-performer of her dreams), Adele.

A source close to Madonna has said that the singer recently met with Adele in London, and they were so into working together that they pinky-swore to each record a song for the other's next album. Nobody's really sure what the phrase "grown-up" is supposed to mean here, but if the universe is really the complex matrix of hidden meaning that religious people seem to think it is, then "grown-up ballad album" means an album of ballads about different varieties of fancy dildos.

Of course, in the unlikely event that their initial plan fails, they'll play a less remarkable concert at the Las Vegas Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino because it's always best to have a backup plan.
