Madonna was perfectly turned out and running nearly an hour late for an interview at her Upper East Side home on Wednesday evening. She looked tense as she apologized. “I’m late for everything now,” she said.
She added that she has been in a rush since December, when a hacker put unfinished songs online from her new album, “Rebel Heart”; a suspect has been indicted in Israel. Madonna’s immediate response was to release the finished, and much improved, versions of six songs for sale; they zoomed into the top 10 worldwide. She also worked frantically to finish the rest of the album, which arrives on Tuesday. It’s at once familiar — full of love, dancing, empowerment, blasphemy and raunch — and up-to-the-minute, made with a huge number of collaborators and tweaked by multiple hands under Madonna’s constant supervision.
“I intended to think about things, choose things more slowly — the whole process,” she said. “Then I got forced into putting everything out, and now I’m trying to catch up with myself.”

Nova’s Red Room will offer exclusive access to one stop on the United States leg of Madonna’s upcoming Rebel Heart Tour. This event with the seven-time Grammy® Award-winning icon will be exclusively for Nova listeners from around the country.
In order to gain entry into this once-in-a-lifetime experience, fans will need to listen to the Nova Network beginning Monday 9 March.
A select number of winners will be flown to American during the opening leg of Madonna’s highly-anticipated Rebel Heart Tour where they will attend a soundcheck for the superstar and later that night catch the full concert where she will perform tracks from her 13th studio album.
NOVA Entertainment’s Group Program Director Paul Jackson said, “We’re thrilled to have this type of access to Madonna for this exclusive event. Nova’s Red Room with Madonna will allow our listeners to get up close and intimate with one of the most iconic artists of all time.”
Madonna will bring her Rebel Heart tour to Australia in early 2016 with dates to be announced shortly.
Nova’s Red Room is Australia’s hottest live music experience, showcasing some of the world’s biggest music acts up close and personal. Since launching in 2012, Nova’s Red Room has produced close to 70 events featuring international and local acts including Taylor Swift, Sam Smith, Bruno Mars, Usher, Mark Ronson and Ed Sheeran.
Madonna was tired but cheerful when she sat down in her Manhattan mansion for her Rolling Stone cover-story interview, just after the Grammys in February. She gave a mini-tour of a small portion of her house, pointing out the Debbie Harry and David Bowie photos in her elevator (“nobody in their 20s knows who that is”), the one-of-a-kind collage the late Keith Haring made for her and many photos by her friend Steven Klein. In the interview itself, she discussed ageism, Lady Gaga, Kanye West and much more — but there was even more that didn’t make the print edition. Here’s the best of the rest, including a look at the creative process behind her new album, Rebel Heart.
I enjoyed the Grammys performance — and watching the rehearsals as well.
It’s a process, yeah. I enjoyed the rehearsals more than the performance.
I enjoy the process of everything more than the pressure of the finished product. It’s like everything. When I go on tour, I like the rehearsal. I like the creation of everything. like being able to wear my rehearsal clothes and be sweaty and not having to worry about how I look and just get into what it is I’m trying to say and do. Same with making music.
You know, the process is obviously much more liberating than delivering something for the world to judge. [Laughs] Because then you have to say, “This is the final thing.” But actually, it’s never the final thing. You wish you could do it again, or tweak it just a little bit more, or change things. Well, that’s what art is. So I enjoyed the Grammys. But after I did it, I wanted to do it again, only better. [Laughs] And of course, my experience of it is not what everybody else is experiencing. And then you have the TV aspect of it, which is, who knows what they filmed?
