Madonna is Harper’s Bazaar’s latest cover star. In the accompanying profile, the 58-year-old singer-actress discusses 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.”
