The Queen of Pop says Taylor Swift is her favourite industry princess.

Madonna, who is about to release her 13th album, told Nine Network's Today's Richard Wilkins "It's good to have princesses" like Miley Cyrus, Rihanna and Katy Perry in the industry.

"It means there's lots of pretty dresses around," she said before singling Taylor Swift out for praise.

"I like Taylor Swift. I think she writes some really catchy pop songs.

"(I)Can't get them out of my head."

Madonna recently made headlines when music from her latest album Rebel Heart was leaked early by a hacker.

The FBI investigated and an Israeli man has been arrested.

The 56-year-old says she was "devastated" by the incident.

"For an artist it's the ultimate violation to have your work taken from you before you're finished."

"I can't begin to tell you how betrayed I felt.

"It's a great relief to know (a suspect has been arrested) but also extremely disturbing.
