To celebrate their May 2015 cover star Madonna, Cosmopolitan magazine also re-visited their May 1990 25th Anniversary issue which also featured the iconic singer. On the cover shot by Ellen von Unwerth, Madge is clutching over-sized pearls between her teeth while wearing a embellished mask, a lace top, lace gloves and statement rings & bracelets. Her look was topped off with her signature red lip and curly locks.
Madonna received a lot of buzz today because she debut a teaser to her next video & my favorite song 'Ghosttown' which you can see on Tidal. In the issue, she talks about longevity in her career, her collaboration with Kanye West, internet haters and more. Continue below to read some excerpts from her interview and for more details on her feature, go to Cosmopolitan.com. The issue hits newsstand on April 14th which also features 4 different covers featuring Madonna.
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."
