Madonna on love: "No one's ever given up their kingdom for me yet"
Madonna, who is currently dating 24-year-old Brahim Zaibat, is a strong believer that women are traditional when it comes to matters of the heart and just want "to be swept off our feet by the perfect man."
Speaking to Britain's Hello! magazine, the singer, actress and now director explained that although the fairytale love story is probably what every female really wants it's important to remember that "happiness lies in our own hands":
"We women still want what we've always wanted. So much has changed for us over the last few decades, in that we have the opportunity for better education, for many different kinds of jobs, for being independent in ourselves."
"But we all still find ourselves wanting the same thing at the same time - to be swept off our feet by the perfect man. We all think that perfect love is going to change our lives immensely. And of course love does change your life. But what we also have to understand is that happiness lies in our own hands, not someone else's."
Referring to her new film and directorial debut, 'W.E.', she added that "when a man gives up his kingdom for you, then it's your job to make him feel like he's still a king for the rest of his life. That's a tall order."
"No one's ever given up their kingdom for me yet. And to tell you the truth, I wouldn't want them to."
