New York: Madonna`s estranged brother Christopher Ciccone has said that the singer’s penchant to date younger men is `creepy`.
Ciccone, who reportedly hasn``t spoken to his older sibling since his book "Life With My Sister Madonna" was published in 2008, told RadarOnline.com that she isn``t "following societal values."
"If she continues to date all these much younger guys, it could start to look creepy," the New York Daily News quoted Ciccone as saying.
"But I think that a lot of Madonna``s emotional needs are met by taking care of her children. These boyfriends must really be like a kind of distraction for her.
"She certainly isn`t following societal values, but then again my sister never has and probably never will either," Ciccone said.
However, he highly praised the music icon on her parenting skills.
Lourdes, Madonna`s 14-year-old daughter with ex Carlos Leon, "has turned out really well. I``m sure her mother is very proud of her," he said.
Ciccone also offered up praise of his sister`s career while criticizing Lady Gaga.
"I can see a lot of my sister`s influence in what Lady Gaga is doing today. It`s like `Madonna on speed` actually," he said, explaining that Gaga is talented but sometimes "goes too far with her costumes and persona," he said.
"Madonna was a genius at changing her image into something that her fans could identify with and replicate if they wanted," Ciccone added.
