Nile Rodgers has revealed that Madonna was not invited to perform on the ‘We are the World‘ charity single because some of her peers felt that she did not deserve a spot on its lineup.

Madonna wasn’t invited to sing on the recording and it was a slap in the face because everybody was in Los Angeles for the American Music Awards and it was really sort of not nice. I know she felt bad.
Nile shared the story during an interview with SIRIUSXM and explained that he felt that there was no real need to exclude her from the track because she, like all of its performers, was in town at the time.

No great loss as far as I’m concerned! Plus there were plenty of others not on the track too ... While it would have been disappointing, I’m sure she was ok in the grand scheme of things 😜
