Madonna just got real about ageism, sexism, and her family and we applaud her honesty
When it was announced that Madonna had won Billboard’s coveted Woman of the Year, we just knew that the star would give a personal, controversial, and provocative interview. She is Madonna after all.
The singer is set to star in James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke this week, and the star is prepping for the release of her live concert film, The Rebel Heart Tour, which is set to air on Showtime on December 9th. However, that hasn’t stopped the mother of four getting real about a plethora of issues, including ageism, sexism, her worries, and her unconventional family.
Speaking to actor Elizabeth Banks, Madonna opened up about her life.
When quizzed about ageism by Banks, Madonna had the greatest thing to say.
Madonna went on to say that while that might not be considered “relevant” to a younger audience, relevancy was just a “catchphrase” for discrimination.
Banks also asked the pop music icon about her charity work in Malawi, and the adoption of her two children David Banda and Mercy James.
However, despite being a successful artist and buisness woman, Madonna said that she still worries (just like all of us).

We love how honest and candid Madonna is about her life. Not only that, but we love how dedicated she is to her family and to her work in Malawi. In fact, the star recently hosted a charity event in Florida as part of the Miami’s Art Basel event and raised $7.5 million for her charity, Raising Malawi. She even auctioned off a chair that she’d been sitting on for $10,000.
Seriously, don’t ever stop doing you Madonna!
