MADONNA to PEOPLE Magazine: “Dress like Britney and Think Like Me!”


SWEPT AWAY, the couple's critically panned film, was pulled from theaters only three weeks after its release. "Everybody wants to know, 'God, weren't you really bummed out by the reaction?' Yes, I was," she says. "But did it affect my relationship with my husband? No. If our relationship couldn't have handled the failure of that movie, what would have been the basis of it?" Besides, she says they had fun filming it. "Contrary to what people think," she says, "I take direction very well."


 "I symbolize the American dream, someone who came from nothing and then supposedly had everything. But did I? Is the American dream everything? I think the answer is no. There's more." Not only that, but the former Material Girl — whose personal fortune is estimated at more than $300 million — says she has changed her tune. "Don't get me wrong. It's fabulous I have these beautiful homes and paintings," she says. "But the most important thing in life is love. I know it sounds corny, but everybody knows it's true."


For now, Madonna is looking ahead, hoping to make another movie — "There's a completely original musical I want to do, a bit of an extravaganza" — and trying not to scrutinize herself too closely. "At one point I only cared about clothes and boys and french fries," she says. "I've grown. I've discovered things I had no idea of when I was in my 20s." Among them: the value of inner peace — and the fact that fashion trendsetting is best left to those with more youthful Blonde Ambition. "I don't want people to dress like me anymore," she says. "Now I want them to think like me. Dress like Britney Spears and think like me, and everything will be fine."
