Music legend Madonna proves that she still got it even at the age of 56. The queen of pop showed off the not-aging figure of a series of whooping shots for Interview Magazine.
The inside provocative and risquĂ©Â photoshoot, taken by renowned Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, features âLike A Virginâ singer flashing her perky assets in boudoir-style sexy underwear by Alexander McQueen.
Itâs not the first time when the 56-year-old superstar took off her clothes. In the past, she famously posed for several nude photos for Herman Kulkens back in 1977 at the age of 18, and the images later were at the center of a legal battle in 1985 when both Penthouse and Playboy attempted to print them.
The December issues featured not only a controversial photoshoot, but also a revealing interview with magician David Blaine, where the mother-of-four spoke about death, drugs use, prostitution and how she’s attracted to creative people.
âI keep saying, âPlugging into the matrix,ââ she said about how some people take drugs to connect to God. âIf you get high, you can do that, which is why a lot of people drop acid or do drugs, because they want to get closer to God.â
She added: âI mean, I tried everything once, but as soon as I was high, I spent my time drinking tons of water to get it out of my system. As soon as I was high, I was obsessed with flushing it out of me. I was like, âOkay, I’m done now.ââ
However, Madonna said she would rather just indulge a day of isolation and silence, especially as a mother of four. “I feel like people are always talking to me, at me, asking things, questioning me, wanting information, work, music, loud noises, children –itâs endless,” she shared. “So the idea of a whole day of silence sounds very seductive to me.”
The singer, whose mother passed away, when Madonna was five year old, also talked about the spiritual side of her life and discussed her strong connections to the concept of mortality.
âI became very obsessed with death and the idea that you never know when death will arrive, so one has to do as much as possible all the time to get the most out of life,â she admitted. âAnd death was a big part of my life growing up. I went to lots of funerals.â
The multi-millionaire singer continued: âThe ritual of prayer isn’t a religious thing as much as it is having a ritualistic moment to acknowledge things and not take things for granted.
âFor instance: the fact that you wake up and there’s air in your lungs; the fact that you have a job to do; the fact that you have friends; the fact that you have your health. You’re going to do something that’s going to bring you joy. We take these things for granted. And, you know, I think it’s important to call angels to you to protect you.â
Madonna’s magazine spreadÂ recieved notÂ just positivŃ reviews, but was also critiszed byÂ some colleagues. Annie Lennox theÂ Eurythmics singer called the Intervoew photoshoot as âattention seeking.â
âI did get things off occasionally but not to that extent,â she explained.Â âI don’t think it’s down to me [to judge Madonna]… I think already the verdict is probably out, would you not agree on that one? I think the question is, âWhat is Madonna telling us?â Anybody know?â
