Cosmopolitan is turning the big 5-0 this year and to commemorate all those years of racy sex tips and stories of women’s empowerment, they’re turning back the clock a bit. They’ve tapped Madonna as the cover girl for May 2015 and the nostalgia couldn’t be any more obvious: Madge also graced the glossy’s cover 25 years ago, shot by the late Francesco Scavullo. This time around, Madonna’s a bit blonder, obviously more buff, and she’s been shot for not one, but four different cover options by Ellen Von Unwerth. We like.
While you’ll have to wait until April 14th to see the entire issue, as well as those other three covers, Cosmo‘s offered up a nice little sneak peek on their website of the issue. And naturally Madge shared a bit of her sassy side, commenting on all topics from Kanye West to internet haters. She even dished on her long-lasting career: “Popularity comes and goes. You need to know who you are, what you stand for, and why you’re here.” To quote one of the mag’s cover lines, need we say more?
