Madonnahas revealed she would sometimes cry before performing on stage during her MDNA world tour last year.
The Queen of Pop, who travelled the globe to support her twelfth studio LP MDNA, confessed during an interview with Billboard that she felt exhausted throughout the gruelling jaunt.
Speaking to the publication at the New York premiere of her tour flick, Madge stated: "There's no such thing as not in the mood because the show must go on, right?"
"I'm a human being like everybody else, so I would have my nights, my bad nights and I would cry and I would say, 'I don't want to do this'."
The 54-year old went on to add that she didn't want to disappoint her fans during the shows, stating: "I sold the tickets and I can't let my audience down.
"Before every show everyone came into my dressing room and we got in a circle and said prayers and 50% of the time I said them and 49% of the time I was crying, usually from over-exhaustion.
"But there's something about pushing yourself out there when it's pouring rain or you're freezing cold or you don't feel well or something really crazy happened in the world like Hurricane Sandy."
Madonna's The MDNA Tour film is set to premiere in the US on Saturday (June 22), with the DVD expected to be release later this year.
