Singer Madonna has opened up about her fight against ageism in the music industry, saying she is being punished for turning 60.
In an interview to British Vogue, Ms. Madonna, who has sold more than 300 million records worldwide in a four decades-long career, has detailed her fight against ageism, reports dailymail.co.uk.
“People have always been trying to silence me for one reason or another, whether it’s that ‘I’m not pretty enough’, ‘I don’t sing well enough’, ‘I’m not talented enough’, ‘I’m not married enough’, and now it’s that ‘I’m not young enough’,” said Ms. Madonnna, who broke into the music scene in 1982. “So they just keep trying to find a hook to hang their beef about me being alive on.”
“Now I’m fighting ageism, now I’m being punished for turning 60,” added the singer, who turned 60 in August last year. She also spoke about her relationship with her children.
