In a revealing new interview with Harper’s Bazaar UK, Madonna opens up about her first year in New York and about being raped on a rooftop at knife point.

Talking about her first year in New York, the pop singer says:

“New York wasn’t everything I thought it would be. It did not welcome me with open arms. The first year, I was held up at gunpoint. Raped on the roof of a building I was dragged up to with a knife in my back, and had my apartment broken into three times. I don’t know why; I had nothing of value after they took my radio the first time. The tall buildings and the massive scale of New York took my breath away. The sizzling-hot sidewalks and the noise of the traffic and the electricity of the people rushing by me on the streets was a shock to my neurotransmitters. I felt like I had plugged into another universe. I felt like a warrior plunging my way through the crowds to survive. Blood pumping through my veins, I was poised for survival. I felt alive.

Madonna is still studying Kabbalah:

“When the world discovered I was studying Kabbalah, I was accused of joining a cult. I was accused of being brainwashed. Of giving away all my money. I was accused of all sorts of crazy things. If I became a Buddhist—put an altar in my house and started chanting “Nam-myoho-renge-kyo”—no one would have bothered me at all. I mean no disrespect to Buddhists, but Kabbalah really freaked people out. It still does. Now, you would think that studying the mystical interpretation of the Old Testament and trying to understand the secrets of the universe was a harmless thing to do. I wasn’t hurting anybody. Just going to class, taking notes in my spiral notebook, contemplating my future. I was actually trying to become a better person.”

Madonna on how she sees her life now:

“I have been blessed with four amazing children. I try to teach them to think outside the box. To be daring. To choose to do things because they are the right thing to do, not because everybody else is doing them. I have started making films, which is probably the most challenging and rewarding thing I have ever done. I am building schools for girls in Islamic countries and studying the Qur’an. I think it is important to study all the holy books. As my friend Yaman always tells me, a good Muslim is a good Jew, and a good Jew is a good Christian, and so forth. I couldn’t agree more. To some people this is a very daring thought.”

    Madonna used to be relevant by taking what was bubbling up in the underground and taking it to the mainstream, but with her last 2 records of new material, she lost that edge…it’s now like she’s mimicking what’s already popular. She needs to dig deeper for new inspiration again…

    Wow, all that her first year in NY. As a person she sounds enlightened and as
    an entertainer she has always been right on.

    I saw that short art film she just released. Anderson Cooper interviewed her about it….4got what’s it called…..something with Art and Freedom in the title and got mixed messages from it.

    What a lot of people don’t understand is that Madonna was punk before she became Madonna. A wise woman once told me: “Women give Sex to get love/Men speak Love to get sex…so true
    BTW, studying the Kabbalah, is not such a bad thing

    “About those ticket prices” indeed. I got to be centimeters from Prince during the Live Out Loud tour for less than it cost to be in the nosebleeds for Madonna’s MDNA tour.
