On April 28 2003, Madonna graced the cover of People Magazine: Madonna’s Real Life

Here’s a snippet of the article that went with the cover:

Once a naughty material girl, the pop icon has turned into a doting mom and devoted wife. But she’s still making waves. Visitors to Madonna’s $6.5 million Beverly Hills mansion on a recent afternoon could stroll through and behold master-works by Picasso, Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo and…resident artist Lourdes Leon, age 6. Alas, Lourdes belongs to the enfant terrible school of art, which has her famous mom clenching her teeth in frustration. “My daughter spilled black paint on the bedroom rug,” says a stressed Madonna. “We’re not really sure how it happened. She was left alone for two minutes, and, well, it’s not pretty.” So where is her husband, British film director Guy Ritchie? “He’s upstairs, working on a script,” she says. “I’m much more the disciplinarian of the house, although Guy is getting more involved.” Then, flashing a playful grin, she adds, “I’d have to fire him as a dad if he didn’t get more involved. I can’t be the hard one all the time.”

  1. I Don’t look at the American Life/Lady of Manor era with much love or Fondness. Sure there are some good songs from American Life-Nobody Knows Me, X-Static Process, Mother/Father, Die Another Day and ballad closer Easy Ride, but on the whole-American Life is Madonna at her most uninspired! Her low point for sure!

  2. Maybe uninspired is the way it works in retrospect. American Life is for me ranks very high. It has a certain quality that was actually way before its time. The songs you mention are great.. but not the only ones in that album!
