Madonna: “I Have All Three; Love, Children And Work”

Madonna: "I Have All Three; Love, Children And Work"

Madonna admits she can’t live without love, children and work. With busy projects such as promoting W.E. and planning a new album, the 53-year-old tries to juggle raising her kids, Rocco, 11, Mercy, 5, David, 5, and Lourdes, 14, and being in a relationship with 24-year-old Brahim Zaibat.

She told the Daily Mail, “You can [have it all] but what you can’t then expect is a good night’s sleep. I have all three; love, children and work. Lucky me. I can’t imagine not having children. I can’t imagine not being in love and I can’t imagine not being creative and doing the work I do.”

She added, “Either the kids aren’t going to be getting all your attention, or the man isn’t or the job isn’t and I can’t contemplate living without all three. You can’t always get what you want, but compromise pays off in the end, right?”

And it’s compromising that has made Madonna realize how to make her relationships work.

She said, “The older I get, the more I understand about the nature of relationships and how to have a successful one. The more I realize that it has to do with compromise and sacrifice and that’s just the way it goes. And unless you want to be alone for the rest of your life you have to realize that.”

    No I saw it too the woman needs to get over herself..

    All of these boys she been dating she seems to be farthing their career getting them job and once she drops one she has another one lined up. It’s kind of sad that she messes with her face with all that plastic surgery to get these younger boys only so she won’t be alone but if a warm bed at night is her idea of love than at least she knows what she wants

    Aw! Great article :)

    (but FYI: Mercy is 5, since she was born in January 2006 and Brahim is 25 since his birthday is September 6th 1986)

    Having sex with a 25 year old when you’re 53 years old? She could almost (but not quite) be his grandmother! That gives me the creeps. Obviously it doesn’t give them the creeps, so more power to ‘em.

    I’ve notes that Madoona never takes her boy toys to events with her their never there to support her in anything. It seems she likes to show them off by taken them out to eat, the club or in front of the Paparazzi, and her new boy on the month never looks happy to be out with her I mean put on a smile she paying for your living and everything else you wants you can at least look happy to be with her.

      I believe you are seeing what you want to see. You don’t like her so you are projecting.

      She doesn’t take them to public events so as to NOT show them off. She hardly talks about her relationships in general and tries to keep certain things private. Going out to dinner or a club, is something normal, not a press event, but because she’s Madonna, she’s going to be stalked by the paparazzi often. She often goes in through the exit door instead of the front door or tries other things to avoid the paps. “Boy” of the month? She was with her previous boyfriend for 2 years and her current one for over a year already, that’s longer than any of Guy’s relationships with young girls since they’ve both divorced. It’s always about double standards though. Guy has been seen “showing off” his relationship with much younger women but nobody seems to have an issue with that.

      As for not smiling? Are we seeing the same pictures? Because when Brahim doesn’t have the camera a few inches from his face, he’s often smiling (there are lots of pictures of them on vacation like this). He doesn’t like the press, so when they’re that close to him, he’s often serious.

      Madonna looks happy, her kids look happy, and Brahim looks happy. It doesn’t matter what other people think and they’re both adults so they can date whatever other adult they please to date. End of.

    Madonna has it all. Except hydrangeas. She LOATHES hydrangeas, people. DO NOT FORGET! EVERYBODY SHOULD BE AWARE THAT MADONNA LOATHES HYDRANGEAS. NEVER GIVE HER HYDRANGEAS.

    I’m not the only one who saw that video this week, am I?

      LOL! We mustn’t forget that she loathes hydrangeas or else risk being humiliated by Her Greatness 2 seconds after presenting her with said hydrangeas.

      I’m sorry, but I can’t feel anything but disappointment when I read about this woman. Yes, she has it all, but she certainly doesn’t have a sense of humility about herself. I mean, really. She has talent, yes, but she’s not the greatest talent that ever walked this earth, so why does she expect that EVERYONE should know everything about her? She needs to come down off the pedestal she seems to have put herself on.

        Have a little sense of humor. She was polite to the man (who was actually a comedian reporter pulling pranks on celebs and not a fan), what she said after was said in private.

        It’s pretty hypocritical of people to act as if they’ve never accepted a gift and later admitted they disliked it. I think people are making this out to be a bigger deal than it is.

    The whole interview from the source was actually great. She was pretty charming, self-deprecating, and playful throughout. Most of the interviews from Venice were pretty good and she had a good sense of humor throughout. There were lots of journalists that were charmed by her in those one-on-one interviews. The flower thing (given to her by a Borat-style TV personality who plays pranks on celebrities) was a joke and so many are acting so self-righteous about it, but it only show their own hypocrisy. Some of the most scathing and rude comments were made by people complaining she was rude. Nobody sees the irony in that?

    While some are getting their panties in a twist about her and trying to control and dictate her life, she’s busy out there actually living it and having a great time.

    I like Madinna too but the fact is the woman is vain, If she was so happy with her life should be getting all the Botox, fillers and plastic surgery to look younger because it would matter.

      Rubbish. What a narrow way of seeing things. Unlike lots of regular people, her likelihood in pop music depends partly on her looks. There aren’t many successful older women in pop music, which is a very youth-obsessed arena. If she didn’t do any upkeep, she would be attacked for that too. She’s damned if she does, damned if she doesn’t. In acting, there is more opportunity for women to age or have wrinkles, but not in popular music. There’s isn’t anyone Madonna’s age who has the same level of success in that arena. Just because she takes care of herself and takes steps to improve her looks, it doesn’t mean she isn’t or can’t be happy.
