Madonna is saddened by her impending divorce, but work motivates her to soldier on, she tells the AP. Though her split with husband Guy Ritchie weighs heavily on her, touring and promoting a new movie “provides a distraction that keeps me going,” the star said. She recently made a documentary, I Am Because We Are, about AIDS orphans in Malawi.

“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,” said Madonna, 50. “It would be horrible if I was just thinking about getting a divorce and had nothing to do.” (Read more Madonna stories.)
