The elections have left Madonna devastated:”It’s like being stuck in a nightmare”

The elections have left Madonna devastated:”It’s like being stuck in a nightmare”

“I wake up every morning and it’s like when you break up with somebody who has really broken your heart!” said Madonna for Harper’s Bazaar’s cover story, explaining how the presidential elections’ results left her broken. “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.”

 

58 years old singer said how she faced too much sexism and prejudices in her four-decades-long career, and that, for her, the fact the former Celebrity Apprentice host will become the president of the United States for just 10 days – is absolutely devastating! It’s just like she keeps waking up to the same nightmare each and 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” she told Roxane Gay, the author of Difficult Women.

The pop star told how she spent the elections night praying for Hillary Clinton’s victory, but her prayers were in vain, and, according to her words, it felt “just like watching a horror show.”

Back in November, just after the elections, Madonna, tweeted she is ready to fight against discrimination:

“Hello, Friday! Let the games begin. Ready to fight Sexism, Ageism, Racism, Homophobia, and all other forms of Bigotry”

She also promised not to lose hope and become fearful, saying:

“Do not lose hope! We will rise up! We will shatter that glass ceiling. Do not give into fear”

In the interview for Harper’s Bazaar, she said the elections results are the wake-up call for her: “I have to get way more vocal and become a little bit less mysterious!” said Madonna. “What I find really astonishing is how quiet everybody is in my industry. I mean nobody in the entertainment business except for maybe a handful of people ever speak out about what’s going on. Nobody takes a political stance or expresses an opinion.” But, according to her, everyone’s quiet because of the fear or the apathy. “Everyone’s really afraid, but because it doesn’t affect their daily life yet, no one’s doing anything about it.”
