The legendary singer certainly made her mark during her most recent sit-down with Jonathan Ross. Not only did Madonna give a few interesting facts about her life but she also performed her hit single ‘Ghosttown’ off her newest album, Rebel Heart. Thus far, the record has not garnered the attention and sales that Madonna had hoped, which is something that she blames on ageism.

“My manager said to me, ‘If you’re not in your twenties, it’s hard. You might get your record played in your thirties …if you’re in your fifties, you can forget it,”” said Madonna during a recent interview with The Sun in which she responded to BBC Radio One’s decision not to broadcast her single ‘Living For Love’ over its airwaves. “I didn’t know it was anything to do with my age,” Madonna further explained. “I just do my work. We’ve made so many advances in other areas – civil rights, gay rights – but ageism is still an area that’s taboo and not talked about and dealt with.”

Madonna has four children. The singer adopted David out of Malawi several years ago. Rebel Heart is currently the number one album in Australia.
