Madonna just lurves talking about Kanye West. She's previously called him "a brilliant madman" and "a beautiful mess" (both interesting turns of phrase) - and now she's dubbed him "the black Madonna".

Speaking to the* New York Daily News* about collaborating with Kanye on her new album Rebel Heart, she said they bonded because they are both criticised for pushing boundaries in music:

"Kanye is the black Madonna," she said. "We know, and recognise, that we have that in common. We're comrades in the envelope-pushing genre."

We wonder what Kanye would think of her comments - after all, he's always banging on about how he's totally original and no-one has his genius. And do these comments mean Madge is looking to pass the controversial gauntlet on, so she can retire?

Not bloody likely.

In the interview she got REALLY feisty about all the negative comments she faced about her age and displaying her body on stage - and she didn't hold back at all:

"Bitch, this is what my ass looks like - show me what your ass looks like when you're 56," she said. "I take care of myself. I'm in good shape.

"Who's to say when I can show my ass? It's sexism. It's ageism. And it's a kind of discrimination."

She added that it was mainly women that slammed her for her appearance:

"People have always judged me, and given me st about one thing or another. Now they're giving me st about age," she said.

"It's bulls**t. And mostly I hear it from women. I feel I should be hearing support - like, 'Good for you'.

"It's like everything else. I'm opening doors for women behind me who one day won't have to deal with this s**t that I deal with."


So in conclusion, don't hate on Madonna - she's going to keep getting her ass out, and you can't stop her.
