Madonna has teamed up with a number of producers over the years but one person she refuses to work with is hitmaker David Guetta and the reason is quite odd.

The DJ and producer, who has worked with Sia; Nicki Minaj; and more, spoke with YouTubers Mcfly and Carlito where he talked about Madonna, revealing that she won't allow him to produce her music because of his astrological sign, Just Jared reports.

"I did a remix for Madonna a long time ago ['Revolver' in 2009] and I won a Grammy for the remix [best remix of a non-classical recording]," he said. "She calls me afterward...she tells me that she loves this remix and she suggests that I produce her next album.

"I arrive for lunch. We talk about everything, the music, what she wants to do with the album. Super nice," Guetta continues. "It's just her and me. Very relaxed, very cool. We have lunch. It's happening. very good and you wonder when we start working together. She asks me for my astrological sign. I answer her Scorpio. Suddenly, she makes a face and she says to me, 'I'm sorry, we're not going to be able to work together. It was a pleasure to know you. Goodbye.'"

That seems about right.
