Madonna’s recent cover for Italian Vogue was shot in her new home country of Portugal. The pop icon revealed that she moved her family out of the country, in part, to get away from the Trump administration.
“I felt like we needed a change, and I wanted to get out of America for a minute―as you know, this is not America’s finest hour,” she said. “Not that leaving America makes anything different or changes anything. I’ve lived in other places; I lived in London for 10 years. I like to put myself in uncomfortable situations and take risks.”
Another reason for the family’s move overseas was Madonna’s 12-year-old son, David’s, interest in soccer. According to her, David 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,” she said. “I saw his frustration, and I also felt it was a good time.”
She revealed that she was between Barcelona, Turin, and Lisbon before she made her final decision. Sadly, the piece doesn’t reveal whether she’s already adopted any Portuguese inflections to her speech.
