Madonna: 'I'm more stubborn than a terrorist'

Pop superstar Madonna has poked fun at her diva reputation by joking that she's more stubborn than a terrorist.

The Hung Up hitmaker giggled when questioned about her uncompromising nature for Harper's Bazaar magazine, admitting it extends to relations with husband Guy Ritchie too.

The singer jested that she always insists on getting her own way - especially when planning family holidays.

She said: "What's the difference between a pop star and a terrorist? You can negotiate with a terrorist.

"I'm not into lying in the sun. He (Ritchie) loves the sea and fishing and being on a boat, outdoors, nature stuff. I'd rather go to India and check out all the temples or go to Bhutan.

"We have had this discussion, and he's got to start doing more of the holidays I like to do."
