Madonna Covers 'Harper's Bazaar' Daring Issue for Nov. 2013!

Madonna looks super fierce on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar‘s “Daring” issue for the month of November 2013.

Here is what the 55-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag:

On adopting her son David: “This was an eye-opening experience. A real low point in my life. I could get my head around people giving me a hard time for simulating masturbation onstage or publishing my Sex book, even kissing Britney Spears at an awards show, but trying to save a child’s life was not something I thought I would be punished for. Friends tried to cheer me up by telling me to think of it all as labor pains that we all have to go through when we give birth. This was vaguely comforting. In any case, I got through it. I survived.”

On her teenage years: “Most people thought I was strange. I didn’t have many friends; I might not have had any friends. But it all turned out good in the end, because when you aren’t popular and you don’t have a social life, it gives you more time to focus on your future. And for me, that was going to New York to become a REAL artist. To be able to express myself in a city of nonconformists. To revel and shimmy and shake in a world and be surrounded by daring people.”

On her career choices: “If I can’t be daring in my work or the way I live my life, then I don’t really see the point of being on this planet.”

    THE QUEEN! Hope we get new music from next year! the MDNA tour was nothing shorty of breathtaking.

  • anony

    She has substance. On the other hand, Miley Cyrus is vapid, and does not compare to Madonna. I wish Madonna were moreso in the media than Miley.

    I thought she had already gone to her reward. I can’t believe she is still with us.

    The article is amazing.. She looks so good

    I find this disingenuous. Madonna was a cheerleader in high school, this is well documented. To say that she was ‘strange’ and had no friends is just misleading and really spits on people who actually were outcast in school as kids and suffered for it. I am quite sure she has been working her charm since she first discovered she had it, it seems to be a common characteristic of popular girls.

    @anony: Madonna has NEVER had any substance, that is her defining feature, and why she still costumes her surface in this way. I am a fan of neither her or Cyrus but I think Cyrus has more potential and depth though she hasn’t tapped very deep into either.

  • BGO


    Not really.. Cheer leaders arent always popular

  • BGO


    You think Cyrus has more substance? GKY

  • Adriana

    I love her! A true artist, queen and someone you can admire. If you don’t appreciate her as a person, you have to appreciate her outlook on life and that fighting spirt she has. She’s beautiful inside and out. And Terry Richardson did a great job with the photography! Is that Chanel and The Blondes?

  • Dirk_Reese-Fan

    She looks ossom on that beautiful art-pictures ! Bling-Bling !***
    Her sex-appeal will never end. Just like her creativity. And that is fine !***

    Madonna was the miley of her time, but it was a different time then, we were more innocent and a hint of BDSM seemed soooooooo controversial. Now we’re so jaded we need to see furries before we get our knickers in a twist. Two talentless women who depend on creating controversy to sell product, only it’s getting harder and harder as we get more and more jaded. What’s next? Full on Brony love?

  • DMR

    @elena: Exactly. Are you kidding me? People are rewriting history and putting Madonna up on some pedestal. Miley is so much more talented a singer and actor than Madonna is or ever was. Madonna was never that talented, she’s just a self-promoting pop star that used shock just as much as anyone to get ahead.

  • RSG

    Miley is merely riding the wave that Madonna started for her. There IS no comparison; to do so is to insult The Queen herself…

    M looks great! Can’t wait to read the article.
