Nothing’s ever boring when Madonna is concerned and at 56, the queen of pop has proved she still has the ability to provoke with her new racy shoot for Interview magazine. Photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, Madonna poses topless in one shot, while another shows her wearing a mask, with a daisy placed in her mouth.

MadonnaMadonna left little to the imagination for Interview magazine

Inside the mag, Madonna is interviewed by her good friend magician David Blaine, who encourages her to open up on a variety of topics. Referencing Blaine’s stunt which saw him spend 44 days inside a glass box Madonna said “I think I would really enjoy it, stillness and quiet, because I feel like people are always talking to me, at me, asking things, questioning me, wanting information, work, music, loud noises, children — it's endless. So the idea of a whole day of silence sounds very seductive to me.”

The singer also explained she feels drug use is often a a spiritual thing for people, saying, “I keep saying 'Plugging into the matrix.' If you get high, you can do that, which is why a lot of people drop acid or do drugs, because they want to get closer to God.”

“But there's going to be a short circuit, and that's the illusion of drugs, because they give you the illusion of getting closer to God, but ultimately they kill you,” she added.

However as for her own drug use over the years Madonna revealed, “I mean, I tried everything once, but as soon as I was high, I spent my time drinking tons of water to get it out of my system. As soon as I was high, I was obsessed with flushing it out of me. I was like, Okay, I'm done now.”

Madonna also described herself as being obsessed with death saying, “I became very obsessed with death, and the idea that you never know when death will arrive, so one has to do as much as possible all the time to get the most out of life.”

But with a career in the music business spanning over 30 years what does Madonna see as humanity’s most important profession? Artist, entertainer, doctor? “Prostitution, of course,” the singer answered jokingly, proving she really has lost none of her knack for knowing the right 'wrong' thing to say.
