Dan Wootton: Madonna is a Kate Middleton fan, but she's not into One Direction - yet
Now's Editor In Chief Dan Wootton flew to New York to meet Madonna for her only UK interview.
Their meeting was filmed for a special Madonna Morning on ITV's Daybreak and Lorraine.
'I miss London, I do,' Madonna, 53, told Dan.
'And I'll be back when I come there on tour. I miss riding my bike everywhere.
'I miss the British sense of humour.'
Madonna is looking foward to touring here this summer and the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations. She's also a fan of the Duchess of Cambridge, the former Kate Middleton.
'I think she's quite charming and intelligent,' she confides. 'Nice. A breath of fresh air.'
But new teen heartthrobs One Direction aren't really on the Material Girl's radar yet.
'That's a pop group, right? Yes, yes, yes, yes. I haven't seen them yet, sorry,' Madonna admits.
'[Holds out her palm] Slap my hand! I'm telling you I live in a bubble. In a tent, really.'
Madonna's new single Girl Gone Wild, from the album MDNA, is out on 14 May.
