Today in Madonna History: May 20, 2012
On May 20 2012, Madonna was asked what she would do if she were the President of the United States for one day, and she replied:
“You can’t really change much in one day. I think I would like to be president for a longer time. I wouldn’t spend as much money for weapons of mass destruction but instead for education and art.”
She was also asked if it is more difficult to become famous or maintain fame:
“It’s harder to stay famous than become famous. I don’t think there’s a rule for staying successful. You have to really love what you’re doing. You have to feed your soul with ideas and you’re not allowed to stop growing as a human. That’s what helps to create art. When it comes to my work I don’t take anything for granted.”

On May 5 2012, Madonna expressed her condolences for the death of Adam Yauch:
“The Beastie Boys were one of a kind! And so was Adam! They were all an important part of my musical history and integral to the musical revolution that was happening at the time. I’m very sad to hear about Adam’s passing. God bless him and his family”
Adam “MCA” died of parotid gland cancer at the age of 47.
The Beastie Boys were the opening act, supporting Madonna, during her 1985 Virgin Tour.
