The superstar claims that the secret to her success is remaining flexible in all her work whether that is singing, acting or directing.
The 53-year-old believes that throughout her career most people have been respectful of her decision to try anything.

Madonna believes that this stems from her own open-mindedness. The icon has always been willing to experiment.
''ve always been adventurous both in my life and in my creativity ' I've always let myself be open to new things, experiences, opportunities, meeting people,' she smiled.
