Madonna wants to be like Mahatma Gandhi

Pop Star Madonna says she wants to be like spiritual leader Mahatma Gandhi.

She adds peace campaigners John Lennon and Martin Luther King to her roll call of individuals she emulates.

Agencies have reported Madonna, 48, says she likes to be inspired.

"For me the best thing in the world is to see something or hear something and go `damn, I wish I did that, damn, I wish I could do that. That's inspiring'."

She told Sirius Radio in the US: "I want to be like Gandhi, and Martin Luther King, and John Lennon... but I want to stay alive.

"I'd like to think I am taking people on a journey ... I am not just entertaining people, but giving them something to think about when they leave."
