The Sexual Incarnations of Madonna
In his book Gatecrasher, gossip columnist Ben Widdicombe described Madonna as a near-perfect interview. She knows how to give the media, concisely and efficiently, precisely what they need to get a good story. He said other stars would try to be kind, aloof, or thoughtful.
