Madonna is known for her proclivity to study all religions. After picking up Kabbalah in the 1990s, the Material Girl told Harper's Bazaar that she's moved on—she's now a student of Islam.

The Huffington Post reports
that Madonna had this to say in a recent interview, regarding where her leanings are taking her next:

I am building schools for girls in Islamic countries and studying the Qur'an. I think it is important to study all the holy books. As my friend Yaman always tells me, a good Muslim is a good Jew, and a good Jew is a good Christian, and so forth. I couldn't agree more. To some people this is a very daring thought.

In the interview, Madge also discusses how she posed nude for art classes in New York when she still trying to get her bearings as a singer, and how she took to England with some difficulty after realizing that "I didn't understand that being openly ambitious was frowned upon."
