Madonna has revealed that she was "lonely" and "rootless" when she lived in London.
In an interview with Glamour magazine (and reported by Film-News), the 'Miles Away' hitmaker said: "When you move to a new country, there’s an anonymity; you can start all over again. That was refreshing when I moved to England, but then there’s the feeling of being an outsider, of being lonely, of not having roots, of not quite being understood."
She also went on to talk about her multifaceted career (singer/actress/director/etc) and that the key is to just keep plugging away. "If you want to do anything right," she said, "you have to put your heart and soul into it. There are always challenges, and you have to be prepared to go to the wall and be on your knees to get something done correctly, so if you don’t love something then it’s just going to feel like a form of torture with no reward."
There was also one last slither of advice: “If you want the job done right, do it yourself. Sorry to use that tired old cliché, but it is true!"
