    Default "take criticism"

    I have questions about the following quotation from Madonna. Will you help me?
    “I have to listen to the criticism that I get when it's dealing with my work. It's beneficial, I guess I don't take criticism very well but it's getting better. If I do something and there's 100 people in the room and 99 people say they liked it, I only remember the person who didn't like it.”
    Q1: Does “I don't take criticism very well” mean she is not good at accepting criticism (probably because she is too proud)?
    Q2: Does “it's getting better” mean her attitude of accepting criticism is becoming better, or criticism is getting less cruel?
    Thank you in advance!
