The pop star has recently shared that raising her six kids has been the hardest battle she has ever fought.
“Today I am still struggling to understand how to be a mother and do my job,” Madonna shared. “Because, whoever you are, having children and raising them is a work of art.”
“No one gives you a manual,” the 64-year-old continued. “You have to learn from mistakes. It is a profession that requires a lot of time. It is exhausting because there is never rest.” However, she is proud that her children learned how to thrive in their own way. “I have never encouraged my daughter Lola to make music or my son Rocco to paint,” Madonna continued. “But I’ve always exposed them to art, to music, and I’m happy that they’ve found ways to express themselves. I have respect and admiration for them and for what they do,”
