The images are great, but I hate the blonde eyebrows. :(

Can someone photoshop them to make them darker? :D

oh fuck, now it'll be even harder to get the full interview if we can't even get ONE fan to scan the magazine, let alone 4 magazines...

Yes, I wondered about that too. The interview in my copy ends too after the question about UB. It seems an odd way to end an interview. The whole interview is only slightly over a page. Seems kind of short. I got my copy at the supermarket where I was grocery shopping and they only had one cover, where she was wearing the black jacket with the safety pins and the bunny ears. I will have to look elsewhere for the other covers and see if they have more of the interview or that's all.

I don't like this photo at all, it's a terrible pose and the hair and look is like I said before JML 2012 MDNA tour. I am also bored of seeing her in black underwear, it's been done to death over the last few years with the last tour and other photo shoots. I want to see her vibrant and in colour, having fun. Also we need a ban on fedora hats so fed up of seeing them crop up again and again zzzzz

Yes I agree that particular look of her has become very very tired.

Thankfully most of the other pics are stellar though! The ones with the bunny ears, the purple hat, the cake pics etc. Love all of these! She's incredibly vibrant

Completely disagree. The masks, the black lingerie, even the fedoras are becoming a hallmark of modern Madonna...and I love it. Plus, that JML interlude was fabulous...so why not still use some of those ideas. They work. And the pink fedora shot with the white coat is one of her best...absolutely stunning. Plus, there is plenty of color in the other shots from this shoot, so offsetting that with something a little darker works. I think she's done a good job with this shoot in bringing in color and vibrancy, mixed with some classic Madonna elements.

Most articles in the magazine have an icon at the end of the article.... This doesn't. It just abruptly ends. I'm really curious

Madonnaramma posted a transcript and more HQ photos...here: http://www.madonnarama.com/posts-en/2015/04/10/madonna-unapologetic-bitch-is-about-a-guy-who-fucked-me-over/

Cosmpolitan: Let’s talk about the album title, Rebel Heart. After 30 years, what are you still rebelling against?
Madonna: Don’t be fooled, not much has changed – certainly not for women. We still live in a very sexist society that wants to limit people. Since I started, I’ve had people giving me a hard time because they didn’t think you could be sexual or have sexuality or sensuality in your work and be intelligent at the same time. People still like to put women in categories – good girl, bad girl, virgin, whore. When I was starting my career, people tried to put me in a category and diminish me. Now I’m being discriminated against because I’m 56 years old, and people don’t think I have the right to continue to be successful, to be sexual, to have fun. That is a kind of sexism and discrimination. No man ever gets criticized for his behaviour because of his age. It’s only women. So for me, the fight has never ended.

Cosmpolitan: Why do you think people get so worked up about the sexuality of older women?
Madonna: You can have a successful career, but eventually, it’s “We want you to get married, have children, and go away.” Or “We’re comfortable with you if you desexualize yourself in some way, shape, or form. If you can neuter yourself or become man-like, then we can accept you.” The reason I look up to women like Frida Kahlo, Lee Miller, and Martha Graham is that they did not fit into the conventional role of how a female should act. They didn’t fit into what society expects a woman to do.

Cosmpolitan: It’s been 50 years since Helen Gurly Brown brought a new sexually liberated message to Cosmopolitan. Did you think a lot about feminism when you were starting out?
Madonna: I didn’t think about the word feminism as much as I thought about women who were feminists. I was influenced by writers like Anne Sexton, Sylvia Plath, Carson McCullers – women who didn’t take the path most traveled. I wasn’t thinking “Oh they’re feminists and I want to be a feminist.” I was just thinking “They’re strong women and I want to be like them.” I wasn’t categorizing or labeling, but I was certainly grateful that they existed as role models.

Cosmpolitan: And now? How do you feel about calling yourself a feminist?
Madonna: I think humanist is a better idea. I don’t like the idea of segregating. Human beings all need to be treated with dignity and honor and respect – gay, straight, bi, black, white, male, female, Muslim, Christian, Buddhist, whatever. The revolution of love is not about just pushing the rights of women, it’s pushing the rights of every living creature on this planet.

Cosmpolitan: Do you date or is that just impossible given that you’re, you know, Madonna?
Madonna: It’s a challenge. I generally meet people through work. Musicians, writers, producers, dancers. I’m attracted to people who are creative, but I don’t have a dating manifesto.

Cosmpolitan: It seems like nothing can break your spirit. Would you say that’s true?
Madonna: That’s absurd. Even strong women have moments of weakness and vulnerability. I have my nervous breakdowns; I just do them privately.

Cosmpolitan: This album reads like a who’s who of the music industry – Kanye, Diplo, Nicki Minaj. How do you go about choosing who you work with?
Madonna: We pick one another. It was my manager’s idea to work with Avicii’s team. I didn’t know that Tim [bergling] was a songwriter. I thought of him as a DJ/producer, but he had two teams of writers. I would go from room to room, sitting and writing with them. I called them my Viking Harem. I don’t remember how Diplo came along, but he was somebody whose music I liked a lot. He brought a whole army of people with him. I think he thought I was going to be quite difficult. He was nervous, but then little by little, all the people started getting pushed away. [Writing] is a trust game, some people you immediately have a connection with and they get your sense of humor. You click into their frequency. Other people are strangely uptight and you’re thinking, “Okay I can’t wait until this is over.” Natalia [Kills], I loved her from the minute she walked in the room. And MoZella, she’s a Michigan girl. I clicked with her immediately.

Cosmpolitan: How hard was it to have so many people involved?
Madonna: The whole writing process was like a train that kept running. I kept picking people up. Some people stayed on the train longer than others. They would get off at stations, and they would get on at other stations. Diplo kept coming and going. Kanye would come and go. We’re living in an age when these DJ/producers are working with lots of artists. Nobody’s doing entire records with anybody. So I was going crazy thinking. “Can’t I just have you for a whole week? Why do I just get you for two days?” There was a constant battle for people who were very busy traveling. That drove me bonkers. But that’s how everybody ended up getting into the mix.

Cosmpolitan: You and Kanye in one room must be pretty intense. What was it like working together.
Madonna: It’s a little bit of a bullfight, but we take turns. He knows that he’s walking into a room with a person with a strong point of view, and I do too. I listen to what he has to say, take it in, and he listens to what I say and takes it in. He knows that I have the final say on my songs at the end of the day, but I respect his opinion. We didn’t agree on everything, but he has good ideas. There was no screaming match ever on this record. Actually, I may have screamed at Diplo once. But that’s only because he ran out to do a photo shoot in the middle of a session without warning me [laughs].

Cosmpolitan: Tell me about the song “Unapologetic Bitch.” What was the inspiration?
Madonna: It’s about a guy who fucked me over. It’s got nothing to do with society.

I was at the grocery store and they had a few different covers there. I looked inside and they all have the same interview. So it's not true that you have to buy all four covers to get the entire interview.

I second that. i have a feeling Cosmo isn't really on import here. Saying that I never found Interview either, which is usually everywhere.

I only managed to find one of the covers for Interview in London and I don't want the same thing happening with these Cosmo ones
