Madonna talks new album – and much more – in Toronto
“Well, Im right now in the process of talking to various co-writers and producers and talking about where I want to go with my music.”
The Queen of Pop herself talks about her new album soon in the making in a seven-minute long interview with Sarah Hampson from the Globe and Mail at the opening of the Hard Candy Fitness club in Toronto.
When asked about how she choose the venture to pay attention to:
“It depends on the day. I have to divide myself into many categories. Im working on my philanthropic charitable ventures. Im fighting for human rights. Im fighting for using art for a platform to bring people together. Im working on my own art, whether thats music or filmmaking. Im raising four children. Im opening gyms around the world to encourage people to get in shape and feel good about themselves; bringing art through dance to gyms to make my gyms different from other peoples.”
And about her legacy as a feminist icon:
“I hope that I inspire women to believe in themselves, no matter where they come from; no matter what education they have; what particular background they originate from. I like to think Im a role model for women. But I also dont like to just limit it to women. I like to think Im a role model for human beings in general.”
Asked if it annoys her when people say shes too old at 55 to wear certain things and act young:
“You just have to keep doing what youre doing. I think not only do we have to live in a homophobic society, but we have to live in an ageist society, too. Once you reach a certain age, youre not supposed to do certain things. I dont really know where that came from.”
