The ageless Madonna participated in a Reddit AMA yesterday, and after sifting through over 12,000 comments, revealed a few interesting facts.

Before we take a look, let’s clarify: Reddit is a a social news and entertainment website; meaning registered users control the content, whether it is text or a link to another destination. That content is either voted up or down and the most popular content makes it to the front page. There are also subreddits, or content organized into specific interests , ranging from serious news (e.g., r/syria) and not so serious (e.g., r/dogs).

One of the most popular subreddits is the r/IAmA, or simply known as “Ask Me Anything”; users submit questions for another user — in this case, Madonna — to answer. Many recognizable names have participated in an AMA: President Barack Obama, Bill Gates, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Morgan Freeman, comedian Louis C.K., Larry King and Michael Bolton are just a few.

Now that you have an understanding of what one is, here are 11 facts we learned about Madonna from her Reddit AMA.

is a happy home

If we take Madonna at her word, while the AMA was being conducted, she was vacuuming her home while her housekeeper typed her answers. That, or she’s a tricky minx that quickly found an excuse to any spelling and grammar mistakes.

You had to see this one coming: people on the internet asked Madonna out on a date. Her reply? “Send photo.” When the user replied their beauty was internal, Madge replied with the same answer, but quickly followed it up with “show me your internal beauty then.”

Nice save.

Question: “Can you name one gay guy you wish you could turn straight?”

Answer: “Frank Ocean.”

The “stranded on a desert island” game is a fun one to play. A reddit user asked, “If you had to live on a stranded island with two other people for the rest of your life, what two people would you choose?”

Madonna answered she would have to bring her four children. When it comes to family, Madonna refuses to play by the rules.

Censorship is still an issue

Madonna has taken a stand on many issues in the past, but her current passion and creative inspiration is artist censorship.

“Censoring of artists, around the world. Censorship – for instance Pussy Riot.”
