Madonna continues her media blitz for her upcoming album "Hard Candy." Following on her interview with Vanity Fair, Madge has opened up, way up, to the UK edition of Elle. A few UK papers like the Mirror and Daily Mail, have run excerpts. Among her revelations, including about her sex life with husband Guy Ritchie, are the following:
On the bittersweet love song, "Incredible," where she sings, "sex with you is incredible"
"Sex with Guy is incredible ... And surprise, surprise, it's his favorite song on the album. Actually, maybe it's not his favorite song, but it's definitely his favorite line."
She and Guy sleep with their blackberries:
"We lie right next to each other with our BlackBerrys under our pillows. It's not unromantic, it's practical.
"I'm sure loads of couples have their BlackBerrys in bed with them.
"I often wake up in the middle of the night and remember that I've forgotten something, so I jump up and make notes."
"I had to marry someone as tough as me. Guy's definitely tough. I had to marry a challenge, otherwise I would just get bored.
"Whatever else Guy is, he's never boring. He can be intolerant of my behaviour but he has certain personality traits which need to change as well."
She then joked, "Actually that's not true. He can be incredibly boring on the subject of jujitsu. After 20 minutes of going on about choke holds and various positions my eyes glaze over and I have to tell him to stop or threaten to talk about Pilates for half an hour."
On daughter Lourdes:
"Lola rules the roost. She is extremely maternal toward David. He is the apple of everyone's eye right now. Lola is major competition with Rocco, but he's starting to fight back. But when nobody's looking, the two of them still creep into bed and cuddle."
And her famous figure, for which she says she works out 2-3 hours a day:
"There are no short cuts to being Madonna.
"It's all about hard work. There is no easy way. If you want to know how I look like I do, it's diet and exercise and constantly being careful... I'm not going to slow down, get off this ride, stay home and get fat!"
"One of the worst things about Britain is that it has such fabulous candy... I love Cadbury Fruit and Nut, Crunchies and Maltesers. But my absolute favourite is a Cadbury Creme Egg. I bite straight in to it and suck all that good stuff right out!"
