Washington: Pop star Madonna has revealed that she struggles to juggle a successful career and personal life, but admits she couldn’t live without love, children and work.

The 53-year-old singer admitted that making sure her children, Lourdes, 14, Rocco, 11, Mercy, six, and five-year-old David, and 24-year-old lover Brahim Zaibat don’t feel neglected, is very difficult task.

“You can [have it all] but what you can’t then expect is a good night’s sleep. I have all three; love, children and work,” Contactmusic quoted her as telling the Daily Mail.

“Lucky me. I can’t imagine not having children. I can’t imagine not being in love and I can’t imagine not being creative and doing the work I do.

“Either the kids aren’t going to be getting all your attention, or the man isn’t or the job isn’t and I can’t contemplate living without all three.

“You can’t always get what you want, but compromise pays off in the end, right?” she stated.
