British popstar, Madonna, is on the cover of Cosmopolitan US magazine’s anniversary edition. It is to be noted that 35 years ago, she was on the cover of their 25th anniversary edition. Surely, this 56year old is not backing down any time soon as she wore a sexy lacy lingerie.
In this issue, the mother of four talks about how ‘we still live in a very sexist society that wants to limit people’ she added ‘Don’t be fooled, not much has changed, certainly not for women.’
On longevity in her career: “Popularity comes and goes. You need to know who you are, what you stand for, and why you’re here.”
On sexuality and ageism: “Don’t be fooled, not much has changed — certainly not for women. We still live in a very sexist society that wants to limit people. Since I started, I’ve had people giving me a hard time because they didn’t think you could be sexual or have sexuality or sensuality in your work and be intelligent at the same time. For me, the fight has never ended.”
On collaborating with Kanye West on her album Rebel Heart: “It’s a little bit of a bullfight, but we take turns. He knows that he’s walking into a room with a person with a strong point of view, and I do too. I listen to what he has to say, take it in, and he listens to what I say and takes it in. We didn’t agree on everything, but he has good ideas.”
On Internet haters: “You can hide behind your computer or your phone and say whatever you want — you’re not known. Could you say it to my face? Would you say it to my face? I doubt it.”
