Madonna compares herself to Picasso.

Madonna thinks artists deep into their careers should stop if they don’t have anything more to say. The 56-year-old star claims she will continue making music until she dies because she is so “inspired” to keep working, just like the late artist, who died in 1973.And speaking about what motivates her to keep delighting fans with new sounds, Madonna revealed some of the creative industry’s most famous names serve as inspiration. “I like to compare myself to other kinds of artists like Picasso,” she said in an interview with The Canadian Press. “He kept painting and painting until the day he died.

Life inspired him, so he had to keep expressing himself, and that’s how I feel. “I want people to walk out like they’re feeling inspired and like they’ve seen something they’ve never seen before [and] felt something they’ve never felt before.” And while the singer admits the prospect of having a stand-up comedian open her concert is a gamble, she is looking forward to seeing how it goes down with the audience. “Amy’s a role model for women, and I am too, and I think it’s a good match,” said Madonna. “I love her and … I just thought, ‘That’s interesting.’ [I’ll] try something new and different rather than the usual run-of-the-mill — have a band, have a DJ. Madonna also teased her forthcoming Rebel Heart tour, saying while she wants to sing her new stuff it’s tough to have to pick from her history of songs that she wants to include. ‘The theme I really truly explore in this show more than anything is love and romance. I sit there for weeks and weeks and weeks trying to figure out which of my old catalog I want to do. “It’s a puzzle that we have to put together ’cause thematically the songs — the old and the new — they have to go together; sonically they have to go together.” Has a comment offended you?
