In recent months, Madonna has appeared in a world tour, released an album, voiced a role in a movie and begun the process of adopting an African child.

So when asked by reports at the London premiere of her latest film, Arthur and the Invisibles, if she planned to retire anytime soon, she responded with a smile – and a resounding: "Absolutely not!"

But the singer, who voices a character in the animated Invisibles, showed that family is her top priority. Leaving 15-month old Malawian youngster David snoozing at home, Madonna, walked hand in hand with husband Guy Ritchie and kids Lourdes, 10, and Rocco, 6.

Madonna and Ritchie, who have shot down rumors of a rift in their marriage, got cozy together to pose for family pictures. Madonna, clad in a Dolce & Gabbana coat and knee-high Stella McCartney boots, also stopped to sign autographs for fans.

When asked by reporters what she had coming up next in her busy career, the multi-hyphenated star answered: "H&M," referring to her "M by Madonna" line with the global fashion chain, which launches in stores worldwide March 25.

Also on deck for the singer is the release of her special edition CD/DVD The Confessions Tour on Jan. 29. The DVD, filmed during her eight-night stint at London's Wembley Arena last year, includes the controversial crucifixion scene that excluded from the NBC special that aired last November.
