True confessions of a ‘spiritual’ Madonna
Madonna spoke to Ben Mulroney from eTalk in in New York City and here’s a report by CTV.ca.
She’s been a movie queen, a dominatrix, a dance floor diva and a political activist but Madonna‘s latest reinvention may catch some of her more hard core fans off guard. With a new CD and documentary soon to be released the Material Girl is ready to tear up the dance floor.
Her latest CD, Confessions on a Dance Floor once again proves that just when you thought she was in danger of slipping out of ‘Vogue’ Madonna reinvents herself and in the process rejuvenates an entire genre.
This time she’s turned dance music on its ear, producing what Madonna describes as a much more personal recording with deeper lyrics. Optimistically hoping fans will think while they dance.
“Generally people don’t make dance music that makes you think, but I wanted to do that, to reinvent the whole genre of dance music,” she told eTalk Daily’s Ben Mulroney in New York.
Take the album for what it is, she added. “You can dance or you can psychoanalyze me. It doesn’t irritate me when people do that at all.”
Madonna’s more ‘spiritual’ self is also seen in her new documentary I’m Going to Tell You a Secret that chronicles her 2004 Reinvention Tour and shows Madonna sharing screen time with her musical director, dancers and choreographer, as well as other members of the crew. It also shows rare scenes with her children who travelled with her on tour.
“To me confession means revealing something about yourself, telling the truth, being courageous,” she told eTalk. “I think the nature of the documentary is to go behind the scenes. You have to be willing to tell the truth. If I’m going to make a documentary of life on the road I have to include my family, so I couldn’t just leave them out.”
And Madonna’s next move could lead her to the stage. She told eTalk that she would consider writing musical theatre. In fact she wrote 20 songs with theatre in mind, some of which ended up on the new CD. But when asked if she would take centre stage, she had a different choice in mind. “Maybe I’ll just wait a couple of years and my daughter can do it,” she said with a smile.
Asked by Ben what she’d most like to be remembered for, she said with a laugh, “It ain’t over yet.”
“I think firstly to be able to have a successful career that spans two decades is a blessing, so I’m grateful for that. I’ll be remembered for tenacity, I guess.”
