The pop icon has been dating the much younger French dancer Brahim Zaibat for over a year. Despite being almost 30 years her junior, Zaibat, 24, has somehow managed to get Madge talking marriage again. When talk show host Graham Norton asked if she would consider becoming a wife for a third time, Madonna replied, "I could actually, yes."
"I think I'm a pretty good judge of character, but I have made a few mistakes," the mother of four added. Still, Madge clings to the fairy tale notions of romance. "If you're a romantic like me ... and every girl I know is ... every girl wants to be swept off her feet by a knight in shining armor. Unfortunately we're raised on those fairy tales," Madonna explained.
"Even if we are sophisticated, educated, intelligent, evolved human beings, we like to think in the back of our minds that Mr. Right is going to sweep us off our feet and take us into the sunset, and we're going to live happily ever after. But we keep getting disappointed," explained Madonna. Then as her inner cynicism, or perhaps realism, set in, the singer added: "If you have even half a brain you know that doesn't exist." Ouch!
If Madge does say "I do" once again, it looks like she has some new perspective to bring to the table. Her 1985 marriage to actor Sean Penn lasted four years. She later wed filmmaker Guy Ritchie in 2000, only to get divorced in 2008.
