At the same time, she uses her fame to amplify some of the most important social issues and movements of our time. Constantly and fearlessly challenging convention, her four decades of music are not only an extraordinary body of work, but a playbook for creative and cultural evolution.”

Madame X is a secret agent traveling around the world, changing identities, fighting for freedom, and bringing light to dark places.
