Madonna insists she is just a 'simple girl' at heart

Madonna is just a 'simple girl' at heart. The 57-year-old singer is currently in the midst of her 'Rebel Heart' tour and says the overriding theme of the shows is about believing your dreams and overcoming adversity.

She said: 'The theme of the show is romance, love, living for love, being a rebel heart....They're all kind of intertwined. It's about rising above, believing in your dreams, overcoming heartbreak, things like that - you know, the simple things in life. [Am I just a simple girl at heart?] Deep down inside I am, yes. But I tackle pretty complex themes, I guess, in my work.'

The 'Like a Virgin' singer appreciates her 'provincial' upbringing in Detroit and thinks she wouldn't be the artist she is today if she'd grown up in luxury.

She told HELLO! magazine: 'I appreciate my provincial upbringing - it's my people, y'know. To me it's really important that I come from the Midwest. My father and the people that I was surrounded with had a very strong work ethic and a very practical approach to work. There weren't a lot of frills. The fact I come from a small town in the Midwest has a lot to do with the kind of open notebook that I had to start my journey, creatively. I don't think I would be as creative as I am if I had grown up surrounded by everything at my fingertips.'
