star John Taylor
has hit out at pop superstar Madonna
, accusing her of copying their collaboration with Justin Timberlake
and super-producer Timbaland
Madonna teamed up with the hitmaking duo to record songs for her new album Hard Candy
, and her single 4 Minutes
- featuring the pair - has become a chart topper across the world.
But bassist Taylor claims the Holiday singer stole the idea for the duet from the 1980s rockers, after Duran Duran joined Timberlake and Timbaland in the studio for their 2007 album Red Carpet Massacre
However, he insists he isn't surprised: "It wouldn't be the first time Madonna's copied us. She's been doing it for years."
