- On her perspective of death, after her mother's passing.

- On hanging out with artists (Martin Burgoyne, Keith Haring, Basquiat, Warhol etc.) in her early days
I was attracted to creative people. You don't want to be the smartest person in the room; you want to be the dumbest in the room. You want to be surrounded by other thinking people who are going to say something that makes you think, "Oh, my God, that's an amazing idea. Why didn't I think of that."

It's about how people take drugs to connect to God or to a higher level of consciousness, [...] that's the illusion of drugs, because they give you the illusion of getting closer to God, but ultimately they kill you. They destroy you. I mean, I tried everything once, but as soon as I was high, I spent my time drinking tons of water to get it out of my system. As soon as I was high, I was obsessed with flushing it out of me. I was like, "Okay, I'm done now."

Not sad, but upset about something.Take a look at Madonna's entire spread for Interview magazine's Art issue below and head over here to read the whole interview.
