London, Dec 8 - Singer Madonna's new boyfriend, dancer Brahim Zaibat, has opened up about his romance with the singer, saying he likes to be in control.
Zaibat, who has been dating the 52-year-old singer for several months, claims he is comfortable romancing one of the world's most famous women and says being in the spotlight hasn't changed him.
"My life did not really change, I am still the same person, I am not the jealous kind. As long as I feel I am in control, everything goes smoothly. I cannot deal with external authority. Madonna and I are very alike when it comes to that," contactmusic. co. uk quoted Zaibat as saying.
The couple met through a mutual friend earlier this year when the friend asked Brahim to dance at one of the singer's events and Brahim claims he wasn't nervous when they first met.
"Norman asked me to dance for the launch of Material Girl (Madonna's fashion label) and then I was introduced to her. She thanked me for my performance, she was a woman almost like any other woman, I was really happy to meet her but I did not stress about it," he said. (IANS)
