Madonna has fired back at journalists for printing her age in articles, claiming it is an attempt to make her seem irrelevant to a younger generation!
The 28-year-old Material Girl (+ 25) made the comments in an interview for the latest edition of
Harper's Bazaar magazine, on which she appears on the cover (wearing rubber bracelets and a lace, off-one-shoulder shirt, because it is, after all, still 1984). The self-confessed Queen of Pop told the magazine, "I find whenever someone writes anything about me, my age is right after my name. It's almost like they're saying, 'Here she is, but remember, she's this age, so she's not that relevant anymore." She also compared being famous with being in high school, where everything is always a popularity contest. That's like, you know, totally true!
In order to combat being thought of as out-of-date, Madonna has recently hit the recording studio again. She has reunited with musical uber-producer William Orbit, who produced her most critically acclaimed album of all time, 1998's Grammy-winning Ray of Light. She has also added director to her list of credits, directing the film W, loosely based on the life of the Duchess of Windsor, Wallis Simpson. Although the film has not been treated kindly by critics or movie-goers alike, Madonna has said she enjoys the entire process of directing and would like to try her hand at it again in the future.
I think they will still be including your age in any articles about those possible movies in the future, Madge...
