Madonna knows a thing or two about gracing the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. After all, she's done it 12 times. In the latest, the pop icon declares her love for "fearless and funny" Lady Gaga, lets slip that she feels "retarded" singing poppy hits like 'Into the Groove' and tries to atone for a decade of fashion, especially that "fluorescent-green sweater combo." On more serious matters, Madonna talks about the "pros and cons" of divorce and that if she hadn't pushed so hard with her work, she "may have thrown myself off a building."

Check out some choice quotes from the RS interview and a few of her best covers over the years, after the jump.
