Her 13th album, 'Rebel Heart', features a number of collaborators including Kanye West, who Madge had only kind words to speak of.
'I like that he likes to push the envelope.' Madonna told MOJO. 'He hears music in a different and unique way.'
She went on to add: 'I think Diplo’s the same. I like people who think outside the box ‘cos they take a song I’ve written that’s quite straightforward and pop and deconstruct it. Rip it apart and turn it into something else.'
As for how she started making her own music and who she was inspired by, it's all down to her love of dancing.
'All my friends were DJs so I wanted my records to sound like what I wanted to dance to,' Madonna told MOJO.
'I would go to clubs and I would listen to what would make me dance. And then I would go back and I would work on my music,' she said.
'I mean, I was influenced by Debbie Harry, Talking Heads, The B-52’s. So to me the line was very blurred between what I was working on and what I was dancing to.'
MOJO is on sale in the UK and online from Tuesday 27 January.
