we get back together so we can form another
relationship together that's honest and respect-
ful as equals. We'll see.
Does the book give the impression that you're too
bruised from the relationship? Or deep down,
are you brothers and sisters who in 10 years will
be able to high-five and laugh at each other —
or is that just impossible? It's not that it's
You have to understand that Madonna by nature
isn't that kind of a person. She was never really
a buddy. Her only real buddy was Ingrid. She
wasn't the kind of person you sat around and
shot the shit with. She was pretty much all work
and very little play. I don't have that relationship
I can hang and talk with my other brothers and
sisters. Madonna is more difficult, and she's
always been that way. That's not something that
fame changed. She was always that way, even
You don't lavish too much praise about your sister's
work. When it comes to her poisonous celluloid
acting, your criticism is rather astute and not
unnecessarily harsh. So what do you think of
her latest album — especially compared to all
her post "Ray of Light" work? It's disappointing.
Thank you! Here's my feeling about the music: You
get to a certain point. You don't need the
money. You have the world of music and art at
your fingertips. Be experimental. Go and do
something off the wall — outside of the enve-
lope. Go experiment and explore. What is this
doing to Justin Timberiake's music? I don't get
it. What is the point?
You have woken the sleeping giant. [Laughs], I
don't understand it, I really don't. And that
video ["Four Minutes to Save the World"] gives
me the creeps. If she were 20 years younger, it
might be okay. But it's just weird — for me.
Other people seem to like it. But I find it diffi-
cult to watch.
Recent paparazzi photos of your sister haven't been
flattering. She looks tired. Does your brotherly
instinct kick in? Are you worried? I do worry. But
also know she's rehearsing her tour. And it's a
iong day for a good four or five months. And it's
exhausting. On top of that, she works out. Plus,
she has children, and the band, and she's prob-
ably got about 10 to 15 dancers and a thou-
sand other things to deal with. It's exhausting. I
get it. I've been where she is — we've both
been there. She does look particularly more
tired than normal. I'd say there's a lot more
pressure right now: She's turning 50, her chil-
dren have developed their personalities
When you saw the pictures, did you think it might
be because of your book? No. I don't think so. I
don't believe that. I think there's other stuff
going on. i don't know if I care to speculate on
what they are. I think there's more to it than

BROTHERLY INSTINCT: Christopher Ciccone says hewor
ried over recent photos of Madonna looking tired
that. I don't think she's incredibly happy right
now. And it's unfortunate. And I feel bad for her
— I do feel for her. The press coverage she's
been getting lately hasn't been pleasant.
Plus, they're going to choose the nastiest photo-
graph they could find. And it looks like she's
coming out of rehearsal, so I would expect her
to be exhausted.
You should send her the book and inscribe a loving
brotherly message. Maybe she'll come down a
few pegs and y'all could meet halfway. That
would be nice. But again, like I said, it's in her
nature to be civil. And I think we can manage
that at some point. Whether or not we can get
to a place where we can call on the phone and
just sort of chat with each other — but we
never reaiiy did that anyway.
She better make a guest appearance on your reality
show. Somehow I doubt that's going to happen.
I'm just too optimistic, huh? You're twisted. That's
what you are.
