Madonna says that gay men understand her.

In an interview with gay glossy Out to promote her latest studio album Rebel Heart, Madonna said that she sometimes wished she were gay.

"I didn't feel like straight men understood me," she said. "They just wanted to have sex with me. Gay men understood me, and I felt comfortable around them. There was only that one problem, which is that they didn't want to have sex with me! So ...conundrum! I was like, 'How am I ever going to get a date?'Maybe if I cut my hair and I lose a lot of weight, someone will mistake me for a guy and ask me out."

She added that gay rights were ahead of women's rights.

"Gay rights are way more advanced than women's rights. People are a lot more open-minded to the gay community than they are to women, period," she said. "It's moved along for the gay community, for the African-American community, but women are still just trading on their ass. To me, the last great frontier is women. ...Women are still the most marginalized group. You're still categorized – you're still either a virgin or a whore. If you're a certain age, you're not allowed to express your sexuality, be single, or date younger men."
