Madonna didn't hold back during her Reddit Ask Me Anything session on Monday, Sept. 16. In a Q&A resulting in more than 12,000 comments, the pop icon and original Material Girl, 55, fielded queries about upcoming projects, her thoughts on censorship, the weirdest (best?) gift she's ever gotten, and the strange dream she had about a hunky (and taken) A-lister.
Here's a look at some of her most outrageous and revealing answers.
On the most embarrassing moment of her life: "There's so many. When I went out on stage and said hello to the wrong city. Sleep deprivation."
On the last dream she remembers and is willing to share: "Brad Pitt and I were living together and there was a small blonde child in the bed. Sorry Angelina, it was only a dream."
On the best gift she got for her birthday: "I got a bong in the shape of a penis."
On why she admires painter Frida Kahlo: "She was the subject of her art. All of her work is a self portrait and yet she shared universal stories and feelings by sharing her personal story. Also she was a freedom fighter and she lived a controversial life and was a survivor, so I admire her life story and art."
On the issue she feels most passionately about, creatively speaking: "Censoring of artists, around the world. Censorship -- for instance, Pussy Riot."
On her upcoming secret project: "It's a very ambitious project because it deals with very controversial issues...both global and personal. I'm extremely passionate about it. It means more to me than anything I have ever done before. In one week it won't be a secret."
On the one gay guy she wishes she could turn straight: "Frank Ocean."
On her advice to her 20-year-old self: "Don't take any of this personally."
