Madonna on the US election: ‘It feels like women betrayed us’


Women hate women. Thats what I think, says pop star crowned Billboards woman of the year and once photographed in Trumps bed

Madonna has described her feelings of heartbreak and betrayal in the wake of Donald Trumps US election win, claiming: It feels like women betrayed us.

During her interview with Billboard, which has crowned her Woman of the Year, the pop star compared her despair regarding the results particularly the significant number of women who voted for Trump to mourning.

I feel that way every morning; I wake up and say, Oh, wait, Donald Trump is still the president, and it wasnt a bad dream that I had. It feels like women betrayed us. The percentage of women who voted for Trump was insanely high, she says.

When asked why she thought so many women according to CNN 53% of white women voted for Trump Madonna replied:

Women hate women. Thats what I think it is. Womens nature is not to support other women. Its really sad. Men protect each other, and women protect their men and children. Women turn inward and men are more external. 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 didnt bother to vote because they didnt like either candidate, or they didnt think Trump had a chance in the world. They took their hands off the wheel and then the car crashed.

Earlier this week, Madonna criticised Trump and said she was ashamed to be an American during a performance and auction that raised more than $7.5m (5.9m) for her Malawi foundation.

Images of the president-elect appeared behind her as she sang the lyrics to Britney Spearss Toxic.

The singer also revealed that she had previously been photographed in Trumps bed for a magazine shoot when he was not at home. She made jokes about his cheap sheets, saying: They wont be Egyptian cotton because we all know how he feels about Muslims, dont we?
