Madonna: ‘Fifty Shades of Grey is not very sexy’

'I kept waiting for something exciting and crazy to happen,' said the singer of the EL James book

Madonna has branded 50 Shades of Grey “not very sexy”.

The singer was asked if she had read the book – which has recently been turned into a film – by Billboard.

“It’s not very sexy, maybe for someone who has never had sex before,” she commented. “I kept waiting for something exciting and crazy to happen in that red room thing, and I was like, “Hmm, a lot of spanking.” I also thought, “This is so unrealistic because no guy goes down on a girl that much.” I’m sorry, but no one eats pussy as much as the guy in that book.”

She also discussed her appreciation of Miley Cyrus. “I like her,” she said. “She seems like she doesn’t care what people think. People are always telling her she’s dirty or crazy or trashy, and she doesn’t care. I love that about her. In her peer group, she stands out.”

Meanwhile, Madonna is set to talk to her fans on Grindr as part of a Valentine’s Day themed competition. The pop singer will chat with five fans via the gay social networking app in the run-up to the release of her new album, ‘Rebel Heart’.

Earlier this month Madonna revealed the video for her new single ‘Living For Love’ after its 24 hour stint on Snapchat expired. The video, which sees Madonna dressed in a matador’s outfit and surrounded by men in bull’s horns as she performs the song, was made available through Snapchat’s new Discover function on February 5.

‘Living For Love’ appears on ‘Rebel Heart’, due for release next month. The follow up to 2012’s ‘MDNA’ is out on March 9. On Christmas Day last year, 14 tracks supposedly taken from the record were leaked, while six unfinished demos were previously released without the singer’s consent earlier in 2014.

Madonna will also perform at this year’s Brit Awards, having confirmed her appearance via Instagram.
