Because I almost never leave the house to experience anything worth writing about, and because I'm tired of telling you what I saw on the television, I will paste below some recent comments made by the Material Girl in The New York Post.

Madonna, 44, said she still appreciates money, but sees its place among other worldly belongings and pleasures.

"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," she said.

"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 says the body of mystical Hebrew teachings known as Kaballah have helped her see life's big picture.

"What attracted me to it is that I was looking for something," Madonna said. "I'd begun practicing yoga, and I was looking for the answers to life: Why am I here? What am I doing here? What is my purpose? How do I fit into the big picture? I know there's more to life than making lots of money and being successful and even getting married and having a family."

Madonna said her true-blue focus on life is family.

"My emphasis, my priority is my family, absolutely, 100 percent," she said. "But somehow we make things work. We don't sleep very much."
