Covering the March 12 issue of Rolling Stone Magazine looking timeless. The magazine caught up with the pop-queen and asked her about that infamous spat with Lady Gaga:

"I don't think she wants my crown," Madonna says about Gaga. "We live in a world where people like to pit women against each other. And this is why I love the idea of embracing other females who are doing what I'm doing. . .The only time I ever criticised Lady Gaga was when I felt like she blatantly ripped off one of my songs [referring to the comparisons of Born This Way and Express Yourself]. It's got nothing to do with 'she's taking my crown' or 'she's in some space of mine.' She has her thing. I do think she's a very talented singer and songwriter. It was just that one issue."
