Madonna performed the recording of a “Madame X” special for Paramount+, answering some questions from the public and personalities. One of them was sent by Ariana Grande: how she keeps herself fulfilled, giving her all as a human being and an artist.
“I have a spiritual life, believe it or not. I know it sounds corny. Not, I’m not religious, but I have a spiritual life. What does that mean? That means that I have a understanding 1) is that we are all responsible for our destiny and 2) is none of it is real. Nothing of the accolade and platinum records, none of it means anything if I’m not feeding my soul” Madonna responded.
