Madonna reclaims the cover of ‘Cosmo’ for the magazine’s 50th anniversary issue — 25 years after the last time she posed for the mag! See the pictures here before her sizzling cover hits stands April 14 right here.
Madonna strikes a pose for Cosmopolitan‘s 50th anniversary issue, and talks about remaining relevant, sexism and her latest collaboration with Kanye West. Always one to make a statement, Madonna shot four different covers for the magazine — all of them proving the singer has hardly aged since she shot the 25th anniversary issue.
Madonna’s ‘Cosmopolitan’ Cover — 50th Anniversary Shoot:
Wearing lots of black lace, retro blonde waves and bold red lip, Madonna’s 50th anniversary cover is the polar opposite of her more casual 25th anniversary cover with the magazine, where she was pictured in a simple white tank with a dark bob hairstyle.

The singer, whose career has spanned over 30 years, opened up to Cosmo about the longevity of her career, saying, “Popularity comes and goes. You need to know who you are, what you stand for, and why you’re here.”
But despite her successful career, Madonna shared the struggles she faces in the industry as a woman. “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,” the singer said. “For me, the fight has never ended.”
