Lighting up the stage with an electric performance, Madonna looks like a woman who”s on top of the world.
The Queen of Pop thrilled the crowd at a music festival in Miami when she made a surprise appearance to promote new album MDNA.
And fans will be surpised to learn that the new material draws on the pain of her divorce from Guy Ritchie.
Her latest release is already a hit – breaking iTunes pre-record sales – its inspiration draws on the demise of her eight-year marriage.
“This album is about a woman who’s been hurt, who”s trying to get through it and who is living every day with her own disappointment as well as her success,” a friend recently told Grazia.
And the lyrics certainly seem to reference their failed union.
On a track titled in Madonna”s inimitable style I Don”t Give A, she sings: “I tried to be a good girl, I tried to be your wife, diminished myself, and I swallowed my light.”
While Madonna powers on juggling her colossal career with children and a romance with French dancer, Brahim Zaibat, her ex-husband Guy Ritchie recently welcomed a son with model partner Jacqui Ainsley.
And according to friends, the singer is steeling herself for the announcement of their wedding.
While opening up through her art, the music maven continues to be as rebellious and controversial as ever.
Criticism over the risqué video for MDNA“s second single, Girl Gone Wild was waved off in Madonna”s typically irreverent fashion: “I”m supposed to be a girl gone wild in the video! How could you go wild and not grind” she quipped.
