At the age of 53, Madonna still considers herself a romantic. While promoting her new album MDNA (which drops March 26), the songstress opened up on Larry Flick’s SiriusXM radio show about her philosophy on love and what exactly it is that she looks for in a man these days. As you may suspect, her expectations are extremely high.
When discussing her upcoming single “Superstar,” Madonna explains how the song basically describes the kind of man her future suitors should attempt to emulate. “It’s about finding a man you can look up to, and comparing them to archetypes that I obviously adore—John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever, Bruce Lee, Abraham Lincoln,” the Material Girl reveals. “I name people who I look up to and admire. I compare the object of my affection to all these people.”
And while that seems like almost impossible standards to live up to, the pop star has been dating French dancer Brahim Zaibat, 24, since September 2010. That boy must be quite the disco dancing, political, martial arts extraordinaire.
