Madonna Admits It Isn’t Easy Working with Kanye West: ‘It’s a Little Bit of a Bullfight’
By Shannon Carlin
Madonna is gracing not one, but four different covers of Cosmopolitan’s 50th anniversary issue and sharing even more secrets.
In the interview, out on newsstands April 14, Madonna talks about working with Kanye West on her new album, Rebel Heart, admitting it wasn’t always easy. Not at all.
“It’s a little bit of a bullfight, but we take turns. He knows that he’s walking into a room with a person with a strong point of view, and I do too,” she says of working with the rapper on her track “Illuminati.” “I listen to what he has to say, take it in, and he listens to what I say and takes it in. We didn’t agree on everything, but he has good ideas.”
Throughout the interview, Madonna asserts herself, admitting from music to everyday life, being a strong woman can be tough.
