Madonna slams age stereotypes

ThSuperstar Madonna has criticised society's long-held stereotypes for the middle-aged, insisting she will never conform to most people's expectations of a 50-year-old woman.
The singer is apprehensive about reaching her landmark 50th birthday in August 2008 - but adamantly refuses to become a victim of ageism. She says, 'Not only does society suffer from racism and sexism but it also suffers from ageism. Once you reach a certain age you're not allowed to be adventurous, you're not allowed to be sexual. I mean, is there a rule? Are you supposed to just die?'

Thanks to all the readers who have written in to us saying that this is an OLD quote from an interview way back in 1992....before she'd even turned 40! Not sure why the press chose to revive this quote.
