    Default Radio 1 Bans Madonna For Being Too Old

    Get out of the goove! Now Radio 1 bans Madonna, 56, for being 'irrelevant and old' for its teenage listeners

    Radio 1 has banned Madonna for being 'irrelevant and old' for its listeners

    The 56-year-old singer has been dropped from the station's playlist 

    The singer's latest single has been available since December 20 last year

    It has only been played on the station ONCE since its release  

    By CHRIS HASTINGS FOR THE MAIL ON SUNDAY
    PUBLISHED: 14 February 2015



    She has dominated the airwaves during 30 years as a chart-topper, but now Radio 1 has decided that Madonna is an immaterial girl and just too old for its teenage listeners.

    Despite her determined efforts to look – and sound – youthful, the 56-year-old has been dropped from the station’s playlist that determines which songs are played by DJs during the day.
    Madonna’s latest song is Living For Love and has been available for airplay since December 20 last year.

    Madonna, pictured, has been placed on the Radio 1 no-play list because at 56 she is too old for their listeners


    Yet it has been played on Radio 1 just once – on January 9 when DJ Annie Mac played it on her evening show. But that was after 7pm, when songs not on the playlist can be broadcast.

    The track is the first single from the mother of four’s new album, Rebel Heart. The station last night said the single had been omitted from playlists on the basis of ‘audience relevance’ and ‘musical merit’.

    A Radio 1 insider said: ‘At the end of the day it’s all about relevance. It’s natural that as an artist gets older their audience goes elsewhere and Radio 1 has to reflect that.‘The station has a duty to meet the needs of younger listeners. I don’t think the audience is losing sleep that it is not playing Madonna in the same way that it used to.’

    The snub represents a remarkable fall from grace for the star who notched up 13 UK No 1s between 1985 and 2008. She finds herself alongside Sir Cliff Richard, Take That, Kate Bush and Robbie Williams on a long list of artists who struggle to get new material played on the station.
    Madonna hints at Grammy performance in revealing outfit

    Sir Cliff Richard, and Robbie Williams also struggle to get their music played on Radio One
    Madonna’s single is being played on Radio 2, which caters for an audience aged over 35. By contrast, Sir Paul McCartney’s new single will be played by Radio 1 even though the former Beatle is 72. This is because the track is a collaboration with rapper Kanye West, 37, and pop mega-star Rihanna, 26.

    A Radio 1 spokesman said: ‘Tracks are chosen on musical merit, and while around 40 per cent of the country’s 15 to 29-year-olds tune into Radio 1 each week, an artist’s age is never a factor.’
    Madonna’s spokesman declined to comment.

    Maybe their hint to her to dress her age.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Radio One is pure, unadulterated sh*t. Nobody (not even kids) listens to it. Madonna should see this as a commendation - and continue to dress exactly as she wishes. Go, girrrl!!!

    I am a huge fan of Madonna's material from the 80s and 90s. I'm not quite as keen on her later stuff - but I do admire her willingness to experiment musically and embrace changing styles. I ALSO admire her for her refusal to acquiesce to the demands placed upon her by 'certain people' (ahem ) to look and dress 'her age'.

    It's worth remembering that the pictures we tend to see in the media are those taken at special events / concerts, where it is perfectly acceptable (and encouraged) to dress outrageously, irrespective of years (and / or gender). In contrast, when I've seen sneaky, long-lens shots published, she looks like any other 'normal' woman - jeans, jumpers, no make-up, etc.

    Is Radio One the show with Zane Lowe or does he host something else?
