Recently named Billboard magazine's 2016 "Woman of the Year," Madonna gave an interview to the magazine and didn't hold back when it came to her views on politics and the 2016 presidential election.
"It felt like someone died," she said about the outcome of the election.
She continued, "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. 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."
She did not elaborate on how, specifically, she felt like women betrayed other women, but she did explain why she thought women across the nation voted for President-elect Donald Trump.
"Women hate women. That’s what I think it is. Women’s nature is not to support other women. It’s really sad," Madonna explained in her own words. "Men protect each other, and women protect their men and children. Women turn inward and men are more external."
She continued, "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."
She went on to say she was "devastated, surprised," and "in shock," at Trump's presidential election win.
"I haven't had a good nights sleep since he has been elected. We're f---ed."
