Madonna Covers The Advocate! Talks GaGa, W.E., Mothering, And More!!

advocate madonna article quotes

Beautiful! The Advocate has written an exquisite article on Madonna, and we really enjoyed reading it!! So much so that we feel it necessary to share the HIGHlights with U!!

In it, they ask her Madgesty how she feels on Time's referral to her "as the Lady GaGa of the 80s," mothering as Madge, and her latest directorial baby — W.E..

Ready to read some of her answers?? Here U go:

On GaGa's relationship with gay men:

It seems genuine. It seems natural, and I can see why she has a young gay following. I can see that they connect to her kind of not fitting into the conventional norm. I mean, she’s not Britney Spears. She’s not built like a brick shithouse. She seems to have had a challenging upbringing, and so I can see where she would also have that kind of connection, a symbiotic relationship with gay men.

On the media and its effects:

When people are writing about you in the beginning and they’re saying nice things, you’re like, ‘Oh!’ You feel this lift of energy. Then they say bad things, and of course, you’re affected by that too. I don’t really dwell on it anymore. I used to be kind of fixated on it and think, It’s not fair, it’s not fair, it’s not fair, but it is what it is, and I just have to get on with my life.

On the haters:

If you are threatened by me as a female or you think I’m doing too much or saying too much or being too much of a provocateur, then no matter how great of a song I write or how amazing of a film I make, you’re not going to allow yourself to enjoy it, because you’re going to be too entrenched in being angry with me or putting me in my place or punishing me.

On mothering:

I’m a strict mother. My daughter doesn’t know why I won’t allow her to get everything pierced or a tattoo or dye her hair blond on the tips and pink at the roots. They just really want me to just be Mom and be normal, and don’t show up dressed in any outlandish way. Just come to school, do the parent-teacher meetings. I can’t even wear a tracksuit. That attracts attention too. You know, they don’t really want to see me as a famous person or a celebrity or somebody. They don’t get it right now. They think I’m a little quirky.

On W.E.:

Like Wallis Simpson, I felt like an outsider. I thought, Life is so different here, and I’m used to being a New Yorker, and I have to learn how to drive on the other side of the road. Suddenly, I found myself living out in an English country house and trying to find my way in this world, so I decided to really take it on and do research and find out about English history and learn about the royal family.

Oh!! Madonna!! So eloquent!! So perfect!!!

We love her, loveLOVElove her!!! Sigh, we wish the Super Bowl was tomorrow, LOL!!

    LOVED IT…. she was nice about G and she loves brit a lot. thats her BF



  2. 2

    Gaga had a challenging upbringing? I need to be enlightened. The only so-called tough parts about Gaga's upbringing that I have heard were her conveniently well-times stories about being bullied.

    Re: lington – i LOVE both brit and madonna but britney doesn't like madonna!! that's a fact. britney hates madonna. sorry.



  4. 4

    Re: rosebud99 – madonna was just making fun of gaga. poor gaga and all her flops! lolllllll :-)



  5. 5

    Re: FatAzzPooHeadDoodle – Ahh. If she was being sarcastic it makes more sense.



  6. 6

    How the hell did Gaga has a hard upbringing?? Private school and private piano lessons - real hard upbringing! I love that Madonna ADORES Britney and dislikes Gaga.



  7. 7

    "I mean, she’s not Britney Spears. She’s not built like a brick shithouse."

    What the f*ck does this mean? Can anyone translate?

    Gawd, she's beautiful! She's possibly the finest example of how much more important steely ambition (and timing), is for achieving success - than having much actual talent.
    If she were even 10% as intelligent as she is arrogant, she'd be positively terrifying!
    Love her!

    Re: FatAzzPooHeadDoodle – How does Britney hate Madonna?? What gave you that impression? Britney has always been a big fan of hers and spoken highly of her and Madonna has been good to her over the years!



  9. 9

    Re: thirdfromtheleft – I took it as her saying that Britney is a really strong person despite the adversities she has faced and overcome in life. Gaga on the other hand is not as strong and people relate to that! I don't know, i'm probably wrong! But that's my interpretation.



  10. 10

    Lol she suck in every articule



  11. 11

    Madonna is jealous of Gaga, plus their new song "Give me all your luvin" filter is already horrible, and has silly adolescent voice



  12. 12

    Re: FatAzzPooHeadDoodle – LOL. are you stupid? Britney does not hate madonna.
    Madonna is her idol, Madonna was featured in her documentary and madonna is like a secound mother to britney.
    your posts reak of uneducation.



  13. 13

    Re: FatAzzPooHeadDoodle – Thats just not true Britney LOVES Madonna!! Re: emireland88 – Your right what Madonna said about Britney is a compliment and anyone who says otherwise is just trying to start shit!



  14. 14

    Re: Rybellion – Oh dear, your posts reek of being a dullard who can't spell.



  15. 15

    Re: thirdfromtheleft – Britney is HOT everyone wants to hit that…as for Gaga maybe a gay man with a stick. Sorry Gaga is very ugly she only started looking descent when she started making $$$.



  16. 16

    Re: thirdfromtheleft – it's kind of well known that madonna's IQ is fuckin' through the roof. the bitch is very intelligent. sure she's not a good actress but do you know how many amazing actors out there who are practically retarded. madonna is a genius.



  17. 17

    Re: SlaveMeh – i'm not starting anything. i WORSHIP BRITNEY!! but britney loved madonna until she got to know her idol. it happens all the time. but i think britney respects her because brit is a kind and innately good human being!! madonna is easy to love but not easy to like!!



  18. 18

    Loving the Cover, Mz. Madge!!



  19. 19

    I dont think it was an insult to either Brit or GaGa. I think she was saying GaGa's "unique-ness" is relate-able to gay men because it's not the conventional beautiful blonde girl (like Britney). It's more of a struggle to make it when you are not particularly the idealistic woman for the job. Madonna really does know how to put things, but it's unclear to many people, she should dumb it down a bit lol.

    Re: comparini – lol i gotta use google translate to understand your comments!! seriously!! what language do you speak?! poor little turds are all twisted because their hood nosed leader gaga is a gigantic flop!! :-)

    Re: Kikikiwi – the cover is pretty smashing!! :-)

    "Haters," what an idiotic word. It's a great way to deflect, though. If someone admire her hard work, I get it. Her achievements in the music industry, I get it. But, her as a person? This I don't get. She is unpleasant, passive-aggressive, vapid, ungrateful and contrived. And albeit she might not have a genius I.Q. per se, she is supposed to be highly gifted, still she has seldom come across as intellectually superior in interviews. That said, I don't doubt her intelligence, as that is what got her here. Stephen Fry, now that's a man who has got it all.



  24. 24

    Re: Everything popular is wrong. – You are clueless - its been quoted many time that she has an IQ of over 142. Genius level. Suddenly you come out of the left field and try to critique her? She has been at the top of her bame forever - and its because she is very intelligent. We are all entitled to our opinions, you just need to chanell some positivity.



  25. 25

    Re: thirdfromtheleft – "built like a brick shithouse" is British slang and it is sort of complimentary - when used about a man, for example "I wouldn't mess with him, he is built like a brick shithouse", meaning tall and muscular. When used about a woman it is derogatory, for example "she was pig ugly and built like a built shithouse" meaning tall and big, and not in a voluptuous or curvy way, its a nasty thing to say about a woman. So, as I don't think Madonna is shading Britney (well, I hope not), then I think she has misunderstood what brick shithouse means and, as for the troubled upbringing bit - is she talking about Gaga or Britney there? It is not totally clear…



  26. 26

    Re: Everything popular is wrong. – you're a #poser. which is even worse than a hater. go dust of that dick, dumbo, and keep *pretending* to be smart. :-) #LittleDickedWannabeSage

    Re: Starfishthrower – Clueless? That depends on the subject, and when it comes to this I am anything but. Madonna scored 140, which is rated as highly gifted, not genius. Ergo; she is very intelligent, but no genius. This has nothing to do with positivity or the lack thereof, it's a matter of fact. And if we're all entitled to our opinions, then constructive critique should be welcomed. Fans seem to think that being a celebrity makes you divine, but it does not change the fact that you're human. 'Fan' is short for 'fanatic' for a reason.

    No one cares about that old whore any more. Lady Gaga is the number one female artist of all time. She is the Meryl Streep of music. Lady Gaga's voice is sensational.

    Re: tellall – #teenypeeny :-)

    Re: tellall – Not really, Gaga's voice is nasaly.

    Re: Saetana – You're confused. She's saying Britney is strong and well-built. "Brick shithouse" isn't referring to Britney aesthetically, but her over-all persona. She's saying she sees where Gaga has struggled to fit in, like most gay men. Britney isn't like that, she's never struggled to fit in, she's well built.
