Madonna thinks she would be thrown off US TV talent show 'American Idol'.
The '4 Minutes' star insists she wouldn't survive on the talent show which made Kelly Clarkson famous, because she hasn't got a conventional singing voice.
She said: "I went to a lot of auditions for musical theatre and conventional mainstream things - and I always got cut immediately. So I'm pretty sure the same thing would happen to me."
Madonna - who is married to 'Snatch' director Guy Ritchie - is proud she achieved pop superstardom the "hard way" rather than being handed it.
She explained: "I did it the hard way. I had to teach myself how to play the drums, I had to get into a band. I played in c****y little clubs for years before anybody would even pay any attention to me.
"I had to take my tape around to record companies and have them shut the door in my face. It took a long time. I came up the hard way."
Madonna moved to New York in the late 70s to pursue her music dream, and even worked in fast food restaurant Dunkin' Donuts to get by.
