Earlier this week, a spokeswoman for Madonna was quoted as saying that her ex, Guy Ritchie, would receive at least £49m.

"'Circus' echoes its title through the album with unnerving beats and creepy riffs. Britney can hardly smile sweetly after such a public breakdown, so it's an album of dark electronic drums, demure only on "Out From Under" and in the bizarre cover artwork." - Talia Kranes, bbc.co.uk/music
