Madonna is Harper’s Bazaar’s latest cover star. In the accompanying profile, the 58-year-old singer/actress discussed everything from her new film, to sexism, to Donald Trump’s win.
Of the latter, Madonna compared it to heartbreak.
“I wake up every morning and it’s like when you break up with somebody who has really broken your heart. You wake up and for a second you’re just you, and then you go, ‘Oh, the person I love more than anything has just broken my heart, and I’m devastated and I’m broken and I have nothing. I’m lost.’ That’s how I feel every morning. I wake up and I go, ‘Wait a second. Donald Trump is the president. It’s not a bad dream. It really happened.’ It’s like being dumped by a lover and also being stuck in a nightmare.”
