While people are sure to see Fifty Shades of Grey over the weekend in substantial numbers, recent reports indicate that Madonna will not be among them, as the 56-year-old "Like A Virgin" singer told Billboard that the story is "not very sexy," as she referred to it as "pulp fiction."
"Yes, I have [read the book]. It's pulp fiction. It's not very sexy, maybe for someone who has never had sex before. I kept waiting for something exciting and crazy to happen in that red room thing, and I was like, 'Hmm, a lot of spanking.' I also thought, 'This is so unrealistic because no guy goes down on a girl that much.' I'm sorry, but no one eats p***y as much as the guy in that book."When asked whether her views on sex had changed within the past few decades, the "Papa Don't Preach" singer said, "Absolutely not. Nope. Sex is a wonderful, necessary part of life." She went on to say that she's a "hopeless romantic" that loves being in love.
"I'm a hopeless romantic (...) I love being in love. I mean, I'm in love with my children, but that's a different kind of love. It's the love that never ends."While she's not a fan of the erotic novel by E. L. James, she has worked with James before, as the author served as an executive producer on There's Only One Madonna, a 2001 documentary about the artist.
James told Us Weekly at the London premiere of Fifty Shades that it was "a long time ago" when they worked together on the 2001 documentary and that she thinks Madonna's an "amazing artist who pushes boundaries" and "good luck to her."
The singer, who was born Madonna Louise Ciccone in Bay City, Michigan, was married to actor Sean Penn from 1985 until 1989, when the two divorced. She was later married to director Guy Ritchie from 2000 until 2008. The entertainer has been active in the entertainment industry since 1979 and had an estimated net worth in 2013 of $500 million.
In other recent news on Inquisitr about the erotic novel, the book's teddy bear from the Vermont Teddy Bear Company has erupted a mixture of ridicule and outrage on Twitter, while leaving some flabbergasted at the bear's existence. We also reported on a surge in U.S. sex toy injuries which correlate with the release of the erotic story.
