She may be heading out on tour in the fall – but don't expect to hear Madonna sing some of her biggest hits ever again.

"I'm not sure I can sing 'Holiday' or 'Like A Virgin' ever again," the singer tells New York's Z100-FM in an interview scheduled to air Friday. "I just can't – unless somebody paid me like $30 million or something. [Like if] some Russian guy wants me to come to the wedding he's going to have to a 17-year-old, you know it." (Listen to the full interview here.)

As she prepares to release her latest album, Hard Candy, on April 29, Madonna also opens up about the music business ("Playing live is not something that people focus on very much," she says) and why she gave Justin Timberlake that now-infamous B-12 shot in the rear end.

On Justin and the Shot: "First of all, I've seen enough butt ... The reason I gave him a B-12 [shot] is because we only had a certain amount of days in the studio and I didn't want him to use that as a lame-ass excuse not to come to work. Okay? It's got nothing to do with butt. I promise you. Listen, I don't need to give him a shot to see his butt. Duh."

On Britney Spears's New Record: "I actually love Britney Spears's new album ... I usually work out to her record. I do a combination of pilates and dance aerobics."

On Her Chances If She Were On American Idol: "I went to a lot of auditions for musical theater and conventional mainstream things – and I always got cut immediately. So I'm pretty sure the same thing would happen to me."
