Madonna Is Ready to Come Back Strong

Madonna looks ready to kick some ass in April's Interview! The almost 50-year-old pop icon is showing off her super-toned body while sporting some sexy boxing gear. She is about to hit the promo road for her new album, Hard Candy, and we can't wait to get our hands on it. In the article, M talks about her kids, working with JT, and her thoughts on freedom. Here are highlights:

  • On working with Justin: "I really enjoy writing with Justin . . . We had psychoanalytic sessions whenever we wrote songs first. We'd sit down and we'd start talking about situations. And then we'd start talking about issues or problems or relationships with people. That was the only way, because you know, writing together with somebody is very intimate . . . that was fun, because he's open and he's got talent. He's a songwriter. I haven't worked with a lot of songwriters where I'm instantly connected and start riffing and playing with the rhythm of the words. He's as interested in the rhythm of the words as the meaning of the words."


  • On freedom: "Freedom is a funny word because when we think we're free, we're not really. I think freedom is quite illusory . . . When I stop thinking about myself all the time and put other people before me on a regular basis, that's real freedom. When I can love unconditionally . . . then that's real freedom. So it's something to strive for, but I'm not free."

To see what she had to say about her kids, just

  • On bringing Lourdes to Malawi: "She spent several weeks working in the orphanages, particularly one with newborn children, and most of them were HIV-positive. She so came into her own and was so responsible and stayed for eight hours every day and worked tirelessly. I thought, why am I babying her so much? She's capable of so much more. We don't let kids do anything. We think, Oh, they're kids — they can't take care of other kids; they can't do this; they can't do that. And after you go to Africa, you drop all that silliness."
  • On adopting David: "He wouldn't have lived if I hadn't taken him. It's not even a possibility."

Sometimes it's still hard to believe that Madonna is both a pop legend and a full-time super-mom. This is one woman who continues to impress us year after year.

Wow. Here's a novel concept: Growing up & older with dignity. Here's another: becoming a bit wiser and smarter as you get older. Her last good single: "Borderline".

She doesn't look 50 in posed photos because they get airbrushed.

i wish she would just go away. she's way past her expiration date. i don't find anything about her and her music appealing. i don't really get the fascination with her either. i could live without hearing about her ever again.

That photo is so unappealing. Coffy said “ there comes a time when the crotch shots should stop." Personally I think the crotch shots should NEVER begin.

I like Madonna, too. That woman is very brassy, which I respect. She gets a lot of heat for being her, but she makes no apologies, and keeps being herself.Physically, she's in incredible shape for any age. But given she's almost 50 years old, and birthed two children--more kudos to her.Also, I think she's very smart. She knows how to keep herself in the media after all these years, and gets the public to talk about her. Great longevity.
