JAKARTA, NETRALNEWS.COM -- Madonna, adiva of world pop music, admitted that she felt "punished" when she turned 60 years old. Because, many people are questioning their appearance, singing and talent.

Madonna, who released her 14th album - Madame X - next month, said: "People always try to silence me for one reason or another. Whether I'm not pretty enough, I'm not singing enough, I'm not talented enough, I'm not married enough. "

"I struggled with age - now I am being punished for turning 60," she told British Vogue magazine, which was reported by Skynews.

Madonna has enjoyed an extraordinary career journey - it's been 35 years since "Like A Virgin" topped the US charts and reached number three on the UK charts.

Even so, Madonna said that she actually felt lonely because there was no one living like me ".

"Nobody did what I did," she said. "And that's kind of scary."

She added: "I can look back at women who I think are great and extraordinary - freedom fighters, like Simone de Beauvoir or Angela Davis - but they don't have children.

"Being a single parent of six children, I continue to be creative and become an artist and be politically active, have a voice, to do everything I do. So I mean, there is no one in my position."

In the interview, Madonna also told about her daughter, Lourdes, who was considered very talented.

"I am jealous because she is amazing in everything she does - she is an extraordinary dancer, she is a great actress, she plays the piano beautifully, she is far better than me in talent."

In the interview, Madonna said she did not let her son David have a telephone at the age of 13, as she did with his siblings.

"I made a mistake when I gave my older children cellphones when they were 13 years old," he said.

"It ended my relationship with them, really. Not entirely, but it became a very, very big part of their lives. They became too flooded with images and began to compare themselves to others, and that was really bad for their self-growth."
