Rencontre de Madonna 'irréelle' pour Robyn.

Thursday, 17 June 2010

Robyn has revealed meeting Madonna was like "an out of body experience".
The Swedish pop star supported the Queen of Pop on the European leg of her Sticky And Sweet world tour.
"It was like an out of body experience because I've been a fan of hers since I was a kid, but also because of the big machine surrounding her - it was on a level that's just unreal to me," she told The Guardian.
"But it was very interesting and I learned a lot. (I learned) just what you have to do to maintain that level," she added.
Robyn - real name Robyn Carlsson - is releasing three short albums this year, which includes a collaboration with rapper Snoop Dogg, following her writer's block after her self-titled 2005 offering.
"When I came off tour, the idea of being in a studio for another year, making an album, touring it for three years, just felt depressing," she continued.
"I decided to release the album in parts so that I could get something out quicker, tour quicker and get back in the studio quicker. It's about me being my own boss."

Robyn Carlsson, meanwhile, slips unnoticed through the gathering crowd into a vegetarian cafe just down the street from Sweden's answer to Abbey Road: Polar Studios, where Abba laid down their run of hits. Even given the distracting presence of the students' truck, her ability to walk around the city unmolested seems surprising: after all, Carlsson – known professionally by her first name – has been a star in Sweden since the age of 16.
Robyn is in the middle of rehearsals, she explains, not for a tour, but as part of "an ongoing process". She elaborates: she is currently engaged in "an experiment to figure out a way of making music that fits my creative process and not the music industry's calendar, an opportunity to question the structure of how I make music". Robyn doesn't sound much like her pop peers – and she doesn't behave much like them, either. This year, she is releasing not just one, but three short albums.
"When I came off tour, the idea of being in a studio for another year, making an album, touring it for three years, just felt depressing. I decided to release the album in parts so that I could get something out quicker, tour quicker and get back in the studio quicker. That's what the song Don't Fucking Tell Me What to Do is about. It's about me being my own boss."
A couple of years ago, Robyn wound up supporting Madonna on the European leg of her Sticky and Sweet world tour. "It was like an out-of-body experience because I've been a fan of hers since I was kid, but also because of the big machine surrounding her. It was on a level that's just unreal to me. But it was very interesting and I learned a lot."
What did she learn? There's a pause through which you could drive a truck laden with Swedish students. "Just what you have to do to maintain that level," she says, and falls silent.
And that's not very appealing to you? "No." She smiles, and slips out into the street.
