Women want the perfect man: Madonna

London: Queen of Pop Madonna says she thinks all women want to be swept off their feet by a perfect man.

The 53-year-old star, who has previously been married to Sean Penn and Guy Ritchie and is currently dating 24-year-old dancer Brahim Zaibat, believes women all have similar expectations about love.

"We women still want what we`ve always wanted. So much has changed for us over the last few decades, in that we have the opportunity for better education, for many different kinds of jobs, for being independent in ourselves.

"But we all still find ourselves wanting the same thing at the same time - to be swept off our feet by the perfect man. We all think that perfect love is going to change our lives immensely. And of course love does change your life.

But what we also have to understand is that happiness lies in our own hands, not someone else`s," she said.

The `Hung Up` hitmaker, whose directorial debut, `W.E` is released in January, insists no one has ever given up their "kingdom" for her but she wouldn`t want anyone to make big sacrifices for her happiness.
