No Andy Cohen-edited issue of EW would be complete without an interview with his favorite pop star, Madonna. The Bravo host’s conversation with the Queen of Pop touches on her own philosophies on everything from Instagram to touring, but she also lauds some of the biggest current music stars. In addition to discussing a scrapped—but still possible!—collaboration with Taylor Swift, she tells Cohen about the “last big show” she saw: Beyoncé.

“She’s a great performer and she puts on a show,” Madonna says. “She’s a professional, you know what I mean? She ticks all the boxes. She’s great live, and all the stuff around her, it’s complete entertainment.”

Hm. Sounds like someone we know. “She gives it her all, so I appreciate that,” she adds. “That was really good.”
