Interviewer: What do you want to achieve now?

Madonna: Stardom.

Interviewer: Make lots of records, or lots of money?

Madonna: I want to make a lot of love. I don’t think about money. It just gets there. Up until a year ago I was still broke and living on the street. But I still feel the same way. Money will never be a problem for me. If you worry about it, it’s a problem.
