Madonna was photographed by famed photographer Mert Alas, who recently worked with Kim Kardashian on her GQ shoot. Editor-in-chief Katie Grand revealed the 10-page spread was inspired by Madonna and son Rocco’s mother-son relationship, which was making headlines earlier this year. In February, Rocco refused to return to her home in NYC since he still wanted to stay in London with dad Guy Ritchie.

Grand shared, "I spoke to Mert about the possibility of doing a shoot with her, as he, Madonna and Rocco are all friends. I wasn’t sure it would ever happen, to be honest, but Mert said, 'Let me ask M and Rocco.’ Much to my surprise, the morning after Madonna’s reconciliation with Rocco, nine stunning images of Madonna arrived via WhatsApp. They had been taken at 2am at Mert’s house in Hampstead where he and Madonna often hang out and have casual dinners."

Rocco also makes his modeling debut in the spread.

In the issue, Madonna opens up about fame and how that has changed with the existence of social media. She shared, "I was already famous before social media, so for me fame isn’t the burden. Fame is the manifestation or the by-product of my work, and that was two decades before social media. Now to me the burden is people are more focused on fame than actually doing the work or being an artist.”
