New York: Madonna, who has collborated with Kanye West on her latest album 'Rebel Heart', believes the rapper is a version of herself.

West often hits headlines for his divisive views but Madonna believes they are comrades in the "envelope-pushing genre".

"Kanye is the new Madonna. Kanye is the black Madonna. We know, and recognize, that we have that in common. We're comrades in the envelope-pushing genre," she told the New York Daily News.

Madonna admits making mistakes when she is vulnerable. "I'm only human. I'd like to get to the point where nothing can shake me. Sometimes I'm there, sometimes I'm not."

The 56-year-old star, however, is not scared of being judged by others, especially women on her age.

"I earned my stripes. ... I'm Madonna. And that's it," she said.
