In addition to discussing Lady Gaga's 'plagerism', in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, legendary pop icon Madonna has spoken out about Kanye West's 'Grammy-gate' – dishing out some advice to the 37-year-old father of one. 

"Don't go to awards shows looking for justice," Madonna warns, referring to West's infamous stage hijacks, with victims including Taylor Swift and Beck. 

"That's like trying to find a needle in a haystack. Just go and have fun. I never got too engaged with who wins awards or not, because I don't honestly think it's that important. So that part of him I can't relate to. Like, what's the point of fighting for somebody, like, 'This person should have got it?' I think sometimes he takes things too seriously."

Madonna did have some praise to dish out too, referring to the rapper turned fashion designer as a "Brilliant madman."

"Like, he doesn't have the same filters other people have. He has to blurt things out – he's always saying inappropriate stuff. But he also has brilliant ideas, if you can get him to pay attention long enough, working with him in the studio," she continued, adding: "But when they did pay attention, it was brilliant. I was, like, running around with a butterfly net. But I feel like the music business needs him, because everyone's become so politically correct, so safe. I don't always agree with the things he says or does – I don't always like his music, even. But he's a beautiful mess. I love him."
