Here are three outcomes of the the Trump Administration’s MAGA agenda. 1) Roaring economy. 2) Build the wall. 3) Madonna moves to Portugal.
Whether or not the pop star’s departure – or Madexit – was part of the plan, it is now a reality.
In an interview with Vogue Italia released on Aug. 1, Madonna said she fled the U.S. for Portugal because she “needed a change,” after the 2016 election. “I wanted to get out of America for a minute – as you know, this is not America’s finest hour.”
During the Women’s March in Washington, D.C., the singer told a crowd of protesters that she had fantasies of “blowing up the White House.”
“I’m angry. Yes, I’m outraged. Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House,” Madonna said. “But I know that this won’t change anything. We cannot fall into despair.”
She also reportedly said she has not had a good night’s sleep since the 2016 election, admitting that President Donald Trump’s victory left her “devastated.”
“It felt like a combination of the heartbreak and betrayal you feel when someone you love more than anything leaves you, and also a death,” Madonna told Billboard. “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.”
Madonna also cited her son David’s dream of playing professional soccer as motivation to flee the United States for Portugal.
“My son David, who is going to be 13 on Sept. 24, has wanted to play soccer professionally for years. I’ve been desperate to get him into the best academies with the best coaches, but the level of football in America is much lower than the rest of the world,” Madonna told Vogue Italia.
