Madonna still yearns for experiences
Madonna tells a British magazine that she is more grateful for what she has these days, but still wants to experience and learn as much as possible.
In an interview with Q Magazine, Madonna said a bad fall from a horse last year changed her outlook on life.
“It was a wake-up call to appreciate my life, to be more grateful for what I have,” she said. “It reaffirms my continued aspirations to learn and do as much as I can while on this earth.”
The 48-year-old singer said the high points of her life thus far were the births of her two children, but the lows came in the form of friends who died of AIDS over the years.
The interview comes out September 30 and was detailed Monday in The Mirror. Madonna is one of 20 different artists and celebrities who will be featured on 20 different covers for the Q’s 20th anniversary issue.
• Madonna reveals all, highs & lows
Pop diva Madonna has bared her heart about milestones in her life, including the birth of her children, her horse riding accident and even her worst hairstyle.
The singer revealed that her horse riding accident made her appreciate her life and be thankful for the things that she has.
The material girl will sport a retro look in one of Q Magazine‘s 20th anniversary covers.
In the magazine, Madonna tells how her horse-riding accident last year, in which she broke her collarbone, ribs and hand, changed her whole outlook.
“It was a wake-up call to appreciate my life, to be more grateful for what I have. It reaffirms my continued aspirations to learn and do as much as I can while on this earth,” she was quoted by the Mirror, as saying.
The 48-year-old, who first appeared on the cover of Q in June 1991, also reveales how the birth of her children, Lourdes, nine, and six-year-old Rocco were the high points of her life.
But the lows, she adds, were “watching many friends die from AIDS“.
Madonna also touches on other lighter issues, such as her hair – and particularly her worst-ever style.
“It was when I made an attempt to do the Princess Leia buns. But she had hair extensions. Not fair,” she added.
And despite her sometimes controversial past, she owns up to a rather low-key favourite vice… double espresso.
