ELLE (April 1998)

Herman: Apparently you’ve "changed your mind" about family. What do you want now? Madonna: There was a great longing in me to find myself. Throwing myself into the entertainment world was like a journey. I was looking for a certain kind of fulfillment. And while it was a great and fulfilling experience to know that people loved me for what I was giving them, there is nothing that compares to one true act of love or intimacy with someone you truly reveal yourself to, whether that’s my daughter o

Q Magazine (March 1998)

Jesus, it’s Madonna. She’s got new hair and loads of religion, she knows what ketamine is and the hippest DJ’s in the world think her new record is swell. “You guys are still taking ecstasy?” she enquires of pharmaceutically retarded Danny Eccleston. According to the ever-reliable Sunday People, Madonna throws one hell of a dinner party. Foie Gras, it seems, is for the plebs. Pre-natally engorged veal is off the menu. Lark’s tongues, otter’s noses – the comestible exotica of the merely-rich and

People (October 28 1996)

It is a wonderful time for woman, that moment when she realizes a new life is within her, stirring, growing, forcing her to think about eventually removing her gold belly-button ring. For Madonna, that revelation came in Buenos Aires last March during the shoot for the musical Evita, when she learned that, after years of talking on the Late Show with David Letterman and in similar intimate venues about trying to get pregnant, she was finally tangoing for two. Delighted but already feeling protec

In this Life - Lyrics

Sitting on a park bench Thinking about a friend of mine He was only 23 Gone before he had his time It came without a warning Didn't want his friends to see him cry He knew the day was dawning And I didn't have a chance to say goodbye Chorus: In this life I loved you most of all What for? 'Cause now you're gone and I have to ask myself What for? What for? Driving down the boulevard Thinking about a man I knew He was like a father to me Nothing in the world tha

Spin (January 1996)

In the more than ten years since she appeared on SPIN’s first cover Madonna has grown boy-toy to mature balladeer without sacrificing her passion, her sensuality, or her integrity. In perhaps her most revealing interview yet, the world’s most famous woman opens her heart to Bob Guccione, Jr. In November, Madonna released Something to Remember, a greatest-hits collection of her ballads, 11 previously released, and three new recordings: a remake of Marvin Gaye’s classic "I Want You," and two Mado

Q Magazine (December 1994)

Knickers up, Madam. Cease and desist with your oaken thespianism. Curtail your wrist-strengthening publicatory activities. And while you’re at it, knock off the self-absorbed psycho-navel analysis. All we ever wanted Madonna to do was make great pop music. And talk sense. Well, now she has. And she is Interview by Paul Du Noyer. Mmm. Now. Yeah. Let me see if I remember … ‘My love is a glorious, something, of song  A fabulous … extemporanea. And love is a thing that can never go wrong …  And I a

She’s the whore in our living room and tiger in the bedroom. But in her bedroom, she’s little Ms. Understood. Chris Heath Discovers That When A Tough Cookie Crumbles, Things Get Messy And Sweet. Madonna is in the shower. I wait upstairs in her New York apartment, and soon enough she arrives, her hair slicked back, a cocktail of three perfumes – Black Narcissus (her lucky perfume), gardenia, tuberose – waiting my way. She picks up my tape recorder. "I’m seeing if it’s turning," she says, "that’s

Madonna makes dance! Primally sexual, stripped down and muscular, Martha Graham’s aesthetic is here made eternally new by Madonna, who recalls her first meeting with the legend. Photographed by Peter Lindbergh Its NBA Ali-Star Weekend and I’m sitting in front of my television, excited, full of anticipation, completely sucked in. It’s gotten to the point where I’m happy to watch NBA players simply walk down a hallway. They don’t even have to be doing anything; their accomplishments, them talent

Madonna in Tears after Huge Donation Offered

US pop star Madonna broke into tears when Brazilian billionaire Eike Batista announced that he would donate $7 million for her welfare projects, a media report said. During a dinner at Batista’s home Thursday, the tycoon asked the singer how much money she collected and how much more she needed. When she answered that she had $3 million and needed to raise $10 million, the billionaire announced his readiness to complete the sum. It was at that moment that Madonna was moved to tears, the Folha

Interview (June 1993)

Madonna: Hello? Mike Myers: Is this Madonna? Madonna: Well, unfortunately, yes. [laughs] Mike Myers: How’s it goin’? Madonna: I’m O.K. I’m getting my nails done. Mike Myers: Which nails? Madonna: My toenails. Have you ever gotten a pedicure? Mike Myers: Yes, I have. Madonna: Isn’t it wonderful? Mike Myers: It’s heavenly. Sort of takes you back to having monkeys pick out your lice. Isn’t that a charming thing to say? Madonna: Where are you calling me from? Mike Myers: I’m calling you f

Icon (1992)

Told by Shep Pettibone (producer & remixer) I remember when Madonna and I first started working together on Erotica. We were listening in my home studio to one of the first songs and I turned to her and said "It’s great, but it’s no Vogue." She told me that not every song could be Vogue – not every cut could emerge as the top-selling record of all time. She was right, but I pressed my case anyway: "I guess I’m always trying to out-top myself," I told her, "the next thing should be bigger th

YM Magazine (Dec 1992 / Jan 1993)

Since none of us would dare play truth or dare with Madonna, we opted for a game of 40 questions instead. We randomly called YM readers, too their best questions and convinced the workaholic material girl to take a break from her frantic schedule (a new album, Erotica; a new book, Sex, and a new movie, Body of Evidence) to lay her answers on us. Read all about what she had to say on life, sex, finding the right guy and fighting her fat phobia. 01. At what point in your career did you feel like

Smash Hits (April 15 1992)

Smash Hits: So what have you been up to lately? Madonna: I’ve just finished working on the movie A League Of Their Own, which I’m very excited about. I’ve also been working on material for my next record but that probably won’t be released for a couple of months. Smash Hits: Are you planning any amazing tours and perhaps finally popping down to Australia along the way [hint hint]? Madonna: Yes, absolutely. But right now I want to concentrate more on film. I’ve always wanted to become an actre

US Magazine (June 13 1991)

This is Madonna – The introduction seems a trifle unnecessary. She is probably the most famous woman on the planet and you are, after all, standing in the middle of her living room. Up above you, as you shake hands, is a beautiful Langlois ceiling painting of the naked Hermes flanked by similarly unclad women. All around the walls are works of art from Mexico, England and France, and original black-and-white photos – mostly female nudes – by Edward Weston, Man Ray, André Kertész and Herb Ritts.

Vanity Fair (April 1991)

On New Year’s Eve, Madonna had her fortune told. She was giving a party in her Nanhattan apartment for forty friends, including her brother Christopher and her then boyfriend Tony Ward, and one of the guests was a palm reader. The first time this woman looked at Madorina’s hand, she would not read it. She said, I am affraid of your hand, your hand, reveals too much. But Madonna pressed the woman to tell her what she saw. “She looked at my palm.” Madonna says a month later, “and she said I’m nev

Smash Hits (July 11 1989)

Madonna has just given her most revealing interview for years. It was done for an Australian TV station and will probably never be shown over here. And this is what happened. Ihe first thing you see is a close-up of Madonna’s face smiling. Then she lets out the most enormous belch, says “Hi. I’m Madonna” and bursts into hysterical laughter. Most odd. Then she starts talking about love: “I guess you know when you’re in love when you finally decide that you want to make sacrifices for somebody e

SongTalk (Summer 1989)

"The image gets in the way," she answers, when asked why people don’t generally think of her as a songwriter. It’s an image she’s worked hard to establish in people’s minds, taking her from the Midwest to Manhattan and presently to a home high in Hollywood’s highest hills. As we speak, Madonna is more than famous: she’s gone from the musical to the mythic while still alive, as much a part of our collective awareness as were Marilyn Monroe, John Kennedy or the Beatles in their day. It hasn’t hap

Interview (May 1989)

Madonna Louise Veronica Ciccone, the one with the mature new image, still admits to being a seductress in pain. In Los Angeles, Becky Johnson heard her out on rebellion, religion, and irreconcilable differences. By now, if you’ve glanced at half the magazines recently gracing the newsstands, you’ve probably noticed that Madonna – the New Madonna – has commanded front and center spot on the shelves. She is everywhere. The New Madonna has long, dark, center-parted hair, she’s still as beautiful a

Vogue (May 1989)

Barring heads of state and the fast-fading Liz Taylor, the Ten Most Famous Women in the World is a list of spouses — I married Ron; I married Gorbachev; I married JFK (before I married Ari); and so on. And then there is Madonna. Madonna Louise Veronica Ciccone was born poor and Italian-American in Bay City, Michigan. She is now thirty and worth a million dollars for every year of her age (some say two million). She didn’t marry her money. She made every last dollar herself. She couldn’t work ha

Smash Hits (Dec 30 1987 / Jan 12 1988)

What’s it like to be the most famous woman in the history of pop? Shortly before the news broke about her marriage to Sean, Madonna sat down and poured out her heart. Smash Hits listened. “Do I ever wonder ‘God, what have I created?’” Madonna nods. “Oh yes.” It’s hardly surprising. Five years ago Madonna Ciccone was just another ambitious American girl in her early 20s. She’d tried to be a dancer but had given up. She’d tried to be an actor – even appearing in a low budget porn film called A

Rolling Stone (September 1987)

With a new movie, another hit record and a world tour, she’s bigger than ever. But does anybody really know the person behind the celebrity? It is a severe, wind-swept Saturday night in the teeming city of Tokyo, and Madonna – the most notorious living blonde in the modern world – sits tucked into the corner of a crowded limousine, glaring at the rain that is lashing steadily against the windows. "We never had to cancel a show before," she says in a low, doleful voice. "Never, never, never." Wi

Vanity Fair (December 1986)

Sweep away the high tack of the Desperately Sought Susan and Madonna is revealed as a startling beauty of almost eighteenth-century purity. The skin, the eyes, the hair. Michael Gross chronicles her change of face. All make-overs should be like this. The gooey girl has become a glamour queen. The slept-on hair is now soigné and platinum white. The swelling belly is flat as a board. The tarty look has softened to a cinematic siren’s. The teenage-rebellion clothes are suddenly svelte. And there i

Time (May 27 1985)

On the long bus ride from Houston to Austin, the green flatlands float past the window and Madonna settles down for an interview. She is wearing a Kelly green knit skirt, which is peeled down over her belly, and a Paisley shirt knotted above her waist. Her streaked blond hair is twisted into a bun and held in place by a big red bow. Her lips are painted bright red and exaggerated. Her voice is a little raw and raspy. FATHER. My father is firstgeneration Italian. He was the youngest of six boys.
