Madonna is hoping for an eternal life because she likes the idea of reincarnation.

The pop superstar and Kabbalah follower admits she turned her back on Catholicism because there was nothing consoling about the religion and she wanted something more.

She says, "The thought of eternal life appeals to me. I don't think people's energy just disappears.

"I hope by the time it's my moment to leave this world physically, I'll have gotten my head around the idea that life is an endless cycle."
