Madonna has branded Kanye West “a brilliant madman” and a “beautiful mess” during an interview with Rolling Stone.The Living For Love singer was quizzed about working with Yeezy, after he co-produced her Rebel Heart album track Illuminati.\n

Speaking of West, Madge stated: “He’s a brilliant madman. He can’t help himself.“Like, he doesn’t have the same filters other people have. He has to blurt things out – he’s always saying inappropriate stuff.

\n

“But he also has brilliant ideas, if you can get him to pay attention long enough, working with him in the studio. He would come and go.”

\n

She continued: “He would drive me bonkers, because he’s got so many things going on in his life. And this seemed to be the theme of my record, working with people who can’t get off their phone, can’t stop tweeting, can’t focus and finish a song. It drove me crazy.

“But when they did pay attention, it was brilliant. I was, like, running around with a butterfly net. But I feel like the music business needs him, because everyone’s become so politically correct, so safe.”

\n

The Queen of Pop concluded: “I don’t always agree with the things he says or does – I don’t always like his music, even. But he’s a beautiful mess. I love him.”

\n

As well as Kanye, Madonna has also worked with Nicki Minaj, Diplo and Avicii on her new LP, which is due for release in the UK on March 9.
