This. Is. Why. Madonna. Is. A. Legend. She just took the thoughts in my brain and unapologetically broadcasted them for us all. Preach it, queen.

In her new interview with Vogue Italia (see photos from the spread here), the singer credits moving to Lisbon for revitalizing her creativity when it comes to recording new music, calling it “a nice antidote to what’s going on in the music business now where everything’s so formulaic, and every song has 20 guest artists on it, and everyone sounds the same.”

“I’ve just met lots of really amazing musicians, and I’ve ended up working with a lot of these musicians on my new record,” she added.

“In Alfama, you’ll hear people singing and playing fado music everywhere,” Madonna continued. “There are these weekly sessions called living room sessions which pop up in people’s beautiful homes that are 500 years old, and you walk up the marble steps which are lined with candles into the living room which is also dimly lit with candles, and there’s this rolling, very intimate performance happening where people play, they sing, they recite poetry.”

“It’s like a salon; something which doesn’t really exist in many places anymore – people elsewhere say, ‘Call my manager, this is how much I charge.’ I’m pretty sure in Lisbon people would do these shows and not get paid, they just do them for the love of what they do, and for me, this is glorious and inspiring.”

RE: Madonna’ sentiment on the music industry 2018. I agree, and I know that’s a taboo thing to say considering I run a music blog that thrives off of mainstream pop music, however, as time goes on I find that we as a culture are bombarded with so, so much content that genuinely great songs are lost in the vast musical ocean. Madonna is from an era where Instagram and streaming did not exist, so her perspective is not only important to pay attention to, it’s actually imperative.
