Madonna on Materialism

In an interview, Madonna, the self-proclaimed "material girl," commented on her material wealth:

Money is like everything. Money is like sex. It's like food. They're all manifestations of God. They're blessings that we get, but they're not what's going to make us happy.
They're not real. They don't last. There's only one thing that lasts, and that's your soul. And if you don't work on that, and you don't pay attention to that, then all the money in the world is not going to help you.

Madonna conceded that she is looking for answers.
