Queen trumps President any day!
Not only did she lose a close friend in Prince over the course of the last 12 months… she says she actually experienced another death when Donald Trump somehow managed to win the Presidential election.
In a sit-down interview with Elizabeth Banks for Billboard Magazine out Monday, the B*tch I’m Madonna singer opened up about the “heartbreak” she felt when Hillary Clinton lost back on November 8, saying:
“It felt like someone died. It felt like a ├é┬¡combination of the heartbreak and betrayal you feel when someone you love more than anything leaves you, and also a death. I feel that way every morning — I wake up and say, ‘Oh, wait, Donald Trump is still the President.’ And it wasn’t a bad dream that I had. It feels like women betrayed us. The percentage of women who voted for Trump was insanely high.”
But why was that?
“Women hate women. That’s what I think it is. Women’s nature is not to support other women. It’s really sad. Men protect each other, and women protect their men and children. Women turn inward and men are more external. A lot of it has do with jealousy and some sort of tribal inability to accept that one of their kind could lead a nation. Other people just didn’t bother to vote because they didn’t like either candidate, or they didn’t think Trump had a chance in the world. They took their hands off the wheel and then the car crashed.”
Unfortunately, we think that’s exactly what happened.
To make matters even worse, Queen Madge is STILL having problems dealing with the never-ending nightmare:
“I was devastated, surprised, in shock. I haven’t really had a good night’s sleep since he has been elected… We’re f*cked.”
That’s putting it lightly.
However, Madonna also made sure to reminisce about his “political incorrectness” upon meeting the President-elect at his Florida resort roughly two decades ago, admitting:
“I wouldn’t call him a friend or ├é┬¡anything, but I’ve certainly met him. I did a photo shoot years ago at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach for a Versace campaign. He’s a very friendly guy, ├é┬¡charismatic in that ├é┬¡boastful, macho, alpha-male way. I found his political incorrectness amusing. Of course, I didn’t know he was going to be running for ├é┬¡president 20 years later. People like that exist in the world, I’m okay with it. They just can’t be heads of state. I just can’t put him and Barack Obama in the same ├é┬¡sentence, same room, same job description.”
We couldn’t agree more!
Do U think we’ll ever wake up from this collective bad dream??
