Madonna Catches Up With ‘LA Times’

It’s a very good time to be Madonna. (Well, when isn’t it?) Her swiftly approaching Super Bowl set is rumored to include Nicki Minaj, Cee Lo, M.I.A., and LMFAO (and pom poms!), her film W.E. has been nominated for an Academy Award, and of course, she’s got us all suddenly fiending for MDNA. The Los Angeles Times ran a piece that catches up with the radio-friendly superstar about all this and more, including the inspiration for her song “Beautiful Killer” (a sequel to “Beautiful Stranger”?) and the Super Bowl’s strict “no nipple” policy. Read more below.

“I have 12 minutes and 40 seconds to do something extravagant and exciting in the middle of something that’s quite sacred to all of America,” said Madonna. “No one’s asked me to tone down my moves. They were curious about my costumes and the costumes of the dancers…. They were very clear with us up front that they don’t want nipples or anything like that, and I didn’t have any intention of doing that, so I was like, ‘OK, we’re cool.’ I’m more nervous about this than most things I’ve done, simply because … it’s not how I’m used to working. I’m a perfectionist. I like everything to be done just so, and I like to run things and run things and run things until people can do it with their eyes closed.”

We have a feeling she’ll pull it off. Check out the full story here.
