“I don’t even think about my age, to tell you the truth. I just keep going … I don’t ever think about the limitations of time and when I should be stopping.

I say to them, ‘Wait a second. Why do you think I do what I do?’ Why do you do what you do? Do you have a stop date for yourself?”Madonna speaking to playwright Jeremy O. Harris in the latest edition of V Magazine about trolls telling her to retire.
