Madonna Does 'Harpers Bazaar'

Check out the Queen of Pop Madonna and nobody you've ever heard of W.E. star Andrea Riseborough giving good face for the cover of Harper's Bazaar's December 2011 issue:


 

















More highlights from inside the mag:

On her insecurities: “For some reason, I feel like I never left high school, because I still feel that if you don’t fit in, you’re going to get your ass kicked. That hasn’t really changed for me.”

On her upbringing and the double standards she faced for boys vs. girls: “One of my father’s famous quotes — and I love him dearly, but he’s very, very old-fashioned—was ‘If there were more virgins, the world would be a better place.’” (Ed. note: Madonna acknowledged he probably wouldn’t say that now.)

On her look as a teen-ager: And then, going to high school, I saw how popular girls had to behave to get the boys. I knew I couldn’t fit into that. So I decided to do the opposite. I refused to wear makeup, to have a hairstyle. I refused to shave. I had hairy armpits.”

On Lourdes’ Material Girl blog: “I proofread her blogs and edit them and give her a hard time when I think she’s being a lazy writer.”

On having a lover just for the fun of it: “Well, it can also be more than just sexual, um, appendages. I don’t necessarily like to use the word lover because it sounds like they just come over and have sex with you. I aspire to more than that, and I need more than that.” (She’s currently dating a French breakdancer.)

On being annoyed when publications put her age right next to her name: “When you put someone’s age down, you’re limiting them.”
