David Guetta has claimed that Madonna refused to work with him because of his star sign.

The French DJ was discussing the singer in an interview on the McFly et Carlito YouTube channel on Sunday (4 October), during which he revealed that Madonna had been interested in working with him after he won a Grammy in 2011 for remixing her song “Revolver”.

Recalling a meeting that took place shortly afterwards, Guetta said: “She tells me that she loves this remix and she suggests that I produce her next album. I arrive for lunch. We talk about everything - the music, what she wants to do with the album. Super nice. It's just her and me. Very relaxed, very cool. We have lunch. It's happening. Very good and you wonder when we start working together.”

Guetta then revealed his astrological sign is Scorpio.

“Suddenly, she makes a face and she says to me, ‘I'm sorry, we're not going to be able to work together. It was a pleasure to know you. Goodbye!’” he said.

According to Cosmopolitan, Scorpios are “emotional, imaginative and intense” and “you don’t mess with the turbulent, deadly scorpion, their sting can be fatal”.

Madonna has worked with Scorpios before. In 1994 she hired Björk to co-write the track “Bedtime Story”. It received favourable reviews from music critics and reached the top ten in the UK charts.

The Independent has contacted Madonna’s representatives for comment.
