Madonna asks Adele for songwriting help

She’s been in the pop music industry for more than 30 years, but Madonna (55) has asked for help from newcomer Adele (25) for her next album.

The Material Girl is meeting with the British songstress to help her write a “grown up” album of ballads.

“They have met in London and plan a writing session to produce a track for each other’s new albums,” says a source.

In 2012, Madonna spoke highly of Adele when fashion designer Karl Largerfeld called the Rolling in the Deep singer “fat.”

“That’s horrible. That’s ridiculous, that’s just the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard,” Madonna told The Sun.

“Adele’s a great talent and how much she weighs has nothing to do with it.”
