Madonna: 'I'm Sad About My Personal Life'

MADONNA has broken her silence about her split from GUY RITCHIE - revealing her gruelling tour schedule is helping her through her personal troubles.
The couple, which announced its separation last month (Oct08), made its marriage break-up official on Friday (21Nov08), when a judge at London's High Court approved Madonna's petition for divorce on the grounds of Ritchie's "unreasonable behaviour".
Their seven-and-a-half year union will be officially dissolved in six weeks time, when they will be granted a decree absolute.
But Madonna is refusing to let the turmoil in her love life effect her hugely successful pop career.
In an interview with the Associated Press, she says her intense schedule "provides a distraction that keeps me going", adding, "I'm sad about my personal life, but I feel very blessed and very lucky that I have the opportunity to do what I do in my professional life. It would be horrible if I was just thinking about getting a divorce and had nothing to do."
In addition to wrapping up her worldwide Sticky + Sweet tour, the star is currently promoting her documentary I Am Because We Are, about the poverty stricken African nation of Malawi.
Madonna and Ritchie were rumoured to have split as early as this summer (08), but have kept quiet about details of their divorce despite relentless media attention.
They have agreed to share custody of son Rocco, eight, and adopted David, three, while Madonna's 12-year-old daughter Lourdes, from a previous relationship, will live with her mother.
