The singer's career has spanned more than 30 years since she released her first album in 1983, and the Holiday hitmaker, who unveiled her most recent album Rebel Heart in March (15), is adamant she will never retire, just like Picasso, who refused to quit painting in the years preceding his death in 1973 at the age of 91.

She tells the New York Post, "I like to compare myself to other kinds of artists like Picasso. He kept painting and painting until the day he died. Why? Because I guess he felt inspired to do so. Life inspired him, so he had to keep expressing himself, and that's how I feel... I don't think there's a time, a date, an expiration date for being creative. I think you go until you don't have any more to say."
