Madonna Special in ”The Sun”
Madonna Special from The Sun
By Thomas Whitaker
Madonna has spilled the beans on her amazing home life with her slob of a husband, Guy Ritchie.
The singer insists she does ALL the tidying at their plush homes in America and the UK.
And in an astonishing interview with our sister paper The Times, she said: I have accepted that my husband’s a slob and I’m the one who tidies up.
I do stand like a headmistress when he comes into the bathroom and dumps his clothes on the floor and (she points to the floor) I go, Ahem’!
He calls me wife’ wife, where are you?’ or wiff’. And he calls me missus’.
If he ever does call me Madonna, I say, Did you call me Madonna?’ and he forgets that I’m his wiff’ and he actually says my name and I go Wha-a-a-t? Say that again, it’s nice’.
I would hardly define us as calm and serene. A lot of what we used to fight about is really silly stuff based on our ego and taking things personally.
Mum-of-two Madonna, 45, said she has given up her wild days and turned her back on the so-called sex years of the 1990s.
She said her children Lourdes and Rocco had changed her opinions, adding: I protect Lourdes from sex, full stop.
We’ve had conversations about where babies come from but sex is not, and shouldn’t be, part of her repertoire right now.
In the past I was interested in pushing buttons and being rebellious and mischievous and trying to bend the rules.
I probably wasn’t really interested in having a terribly serious relationship. So I made decisions based on how they looked more than what do we have in common’.
Madonna also revealed that her children abide by some strict rules.
She said Lourdes, seven, and Rocco, three, are banned from watching television or swearing.
The star said: If anyone swears (which includes saying shut up’, stupid’ or the hate word’) they have to put money into a pot. My kids are like the swearing police.
Madonna spoke of her interest in the cult religion Kabbalah and how it works for me.
Based on an ancient Jewish philosophy, it has been embraced by a host of celebrities.
She said: If there’s a difference between me and my friends it’s that I’m on a spiritual passage and they’re not.
I can’t stand being around people who whinge and act like victims.
Madonna even talked about terrorism blaming society for creating monsters like Osama Bin Laden’s al-Qa’ida terror organisation.
She said: It’s only a matter of time when people are negative, and the majority of people are for us to open things to an entity like Osama Bin Laden or Hitler.
So the fact that they can do the evil deeds they do, eventually that’s our reponsibility.
We created an opening with our desire to receive for only ourselves’ mentality. That doesn’t mean that I don’t have compassion but it’s not about being a victim. She gave her interview to publicise the first of five children’s books she is writing called The English Roses.
The name was taken after her daughter’s English friends and classmates from The Lycee school in West London Nicole, Amy, Charlotte and Grace.
Each of the five books are based loosely on a different Kabbalah morality tale, Madonna explains.
The first one gives the message that you shouldn’t be envious of others or make assumptions based on appearances.
Madonna who in the recent Sunday Times rich list was said to have a £227million fortune is giving the proceeds to the Spirituality for Kids Foundation for education in Los Angeles.
The star looked back to her own school life and admitted she HATED it. She said: I felt awkward and out of place. Not popular, not attractive, not special in any way, and I was longing for love and approval from someone.
And I started dancing and my dancing is what brought me to New York. It wasn’t until I became successful that I felt like I filled up my emptiness.
Madonna also spoke of Kabbalah’s so-called healing qualities.
Followers can drink or bathe in Kabbalah mountain spring water.
Madonna said: It has gotten rid of my husband’s verrucas and he’ll tell anybody his boring verrucas story.
The water costing £4 a bottle is said to be spiritually-treated.
Makers say it improves the skin, helps the immune system and cleanses the soul.
They say the water’s smaller molecules mean it is more easily absorbed by the skin.
