Madonna has released a new album called "Madame X," which the singer says is also the name of her latest persona.
When asked about the new alter ego, Madonna told NPR that "[w]e all need to be more curious, more open-minded, less judgmental, less discriminating, more accepting, more loving, more adventurous. Madame X would like that to happen in the world."
Another big star from the 1980s with a new album, but same old persona, is Bruce Springsteen. His latest record is called "Western Stars."
