Madonna Covers Rolling Stone Magazine’s March 2015 Issue

The Queen of Pop Madonna is the cover girl of Rolling Stone Magazine’s March 2015 edition, Madonna talked about Kanye West, Lady GaGa, ageism, her ass and Taylor Swift. Read excerpts from the interview below:

On Kanye; “He’s a brilliant madman. He can’t help himself. Like, he doesn’t have the same filters other people have. He has to blurt things out—he’s always saying inappropriate stuff. But he also has brilliant ideas in the studio, if you can get him to pay attention long enough. I don’t always agree with the things he says or does—I don’t always like his music, even. But he’s a beautiful mess. I love him…I think he takes award shows too seriously…So that part of him I can’t relate to. Like, what’s the point of fighting for somebody to…like, ‘This person should have got it?’ Don’t come to an award show looking for justice!”

On Lady Gaga; “I don’t think she wants my crown…We live in a world where people like to pit women against each other And this is why I love the idea of embracing other females who are doing what I’m doing. The only time I ever criticized Lady Gaga was when I felt like she blatantly ripped off one of my songs. It’s got nothing to do with ‘she’s taking my crown’ or ‘she’s in some space of mine’. She has her thing. I do think she’s a very talented singer and songwriter. It was just that one issue. And everybody’s obviously run with it and turned it into a huge feud, which I think is really boring, quite frankly. And you know what? I don’t care anymore. Here’s the thing: one day everyone’s going to shut up about it. You’ll see! I have a plan.”

On Taylor Swift; “She has an opinion, and she’s going against the norm. So in that respect, she is similar to me, yeah. And also, people just want to give her a hard time all the time because they think she’s a goody-two-shoes, so of course I want to embrace her.”

On ageism, in pop writing and in society; “It’s still the one area where you can totally discriminate against somebody,” she says, “and talk shit. Because of their age. Only females, though. Not males. So in that respect we still live in a very sexist society. No one would dare to say a degrading remark about being black or dare to say a degrading remark on Instagram about someone being gay,” Madonna continues. “But my age – anybody and everybody would say something degrading to me. And I always think to myself, why is that accepted? What’s the difference between that and racism, or any discrimination? They’re judging me by my age. I don’t understand. I’m trying to get my head around it. Because women, generally, when they reach a certain age, have accepted that they’re not allowed to behave a certain way. But I don’t follow the rules. I never did, and I’m not going to start.”
