Madonna Looks Back On Cover Of Rolling Stone

The 50-something sounded off to the mag about her transformations, biggest hits and being a "geek".

“I think people put a lot of emphasis on the whole reinvention of my image, and it’s always been a lot less calculated than people think,” Madonna told the mag. ” I think it’s boring to stay the same. A girl likes to change her look.” Really? Still referring to herself as "a girl" at 51?

“I was a geek in high school. I didn’t really have a drink until I got divorced for the first time [from Sean Penn] when I was 30,” she says. But just after that she recounts a time in the 7th grade where she sang The Who's Baba O'Riley for a talent show in a midriff top and body paint. Doesn't sound too "geeky" to me.

But Madonna also said some things that actually make sense. Madge recently told Contact Music that "I see myself in Lady GaGa."

"When I saw her, she didn't have a lot of money for her production," Mama Madonna said. "She had holes in her fishnets, and there were mistakes everywhere. It was kind of a mess, but I can see that she has that 'It Factor'." Hmmm, holes in her fishnets and mistakes everywhere? Sounds like the old Madonna indeed!

I just wish their first collaboration had been better than this disaster. Oh well, there's still time. GaGa is still in her twenties and Madonna's gonna bio-engineer herself to live forever so maybe we'll get a duet out of them yet!

Last night Madonna went out in New York solo, without any of her five children (yes, including Jesus.) Guess while she wanted to "look back" on her life, she thought it might be best to be with people who were actually alive in the 80s!
