60-year-old ‘La Isla Bonita’ singer MADONNA covers June 2019’s British VOGUE, and reveals A LOT!
This is Madonna’s first Vogue cover since February 1989, and says of her career being a battle: “People have always been trying to silence me for one reason or another, whether it’s that I’m not pretty enough, I don’t sing well enough, I’m not talented enough, I’m not married enough, and now it’s that I’m not young enough. So they just keep trying to find a hook to hang their beef about me being alive on. Now I’m fighting ageism, now I’m being punished for turning 60.”
On having no living role models, Madonna says: “There are no living role models for me. Because nobody does what I do. And that’s kind of scary. I can look back at women who I think were great and amazing – freedom fighters, like Simone de Beauvoir or Angela Davis – but they didn’t have kids. Being a single parent of six children, I continue to be creative and be an artist and be politically active, to have a voice, to do all the things that I do. So I mean, there isn’t anybody in my position.” Take a look at her cover below and for more click here and let us know: DO YOU LIKE MADONNA’S COVER? IS IT AMAZING FOR 60?
