Madonna: 'Ask me what you really want to know'

Madonna would rather not waste time with the pleasantries and nonsense of another junket interview. She is sitting on a sofa in a posh midtown Manhattan hotel, wearing a blue silk dress and fingerless black leather gloves, and she has just been asked, perhaps for the 50th time today, how she began making her upcoming movie.
'Not that question,' she says, putting her head in her hands. 'Anything but that question. Ask me what you really want to know.'
It’s not exactly what you expect someone will say to you two minutes into a conversation, but there’s also something refreshing about her bluntness, her impatience, what Liz Smith calls her 'lack of concern with being loved by people.' One of the interesting things about Madonna is that although she has been offending people throughout her entire career, she seems incapable of being offended by anything - except stuff that bores her.
