Madonna has been featured in a profile by the New York Times Magazine. That’s in anticipation of the release of her 14th studio album Madame X.
The interview concerns itself with issues such as motherhood, ageing, new music, the internet and much more.
In the piece, Madonna looks back on her heyday, recent time spent in Portugal, where one of her sons attends a soccer academy, and the journey to her latest full-length record.
She also reflects on the current state of affairs for women in entertainment and admitted that she also experienced Harvey Weinstein’s harassment in the business.
That was when they collaborated on her 1991 tour documentary Madonna: Truth or Dare, distributed by Weinstein’s former company Miramax. The queen of pop explained:
“Harvey crossed lines and boundaries and was incredibly sexually flirtatious and forward with me when we were working together; he was married at the time, and I certainly wasn’t interested.”
“I was aware that he did the same with a lot of other women that I knew in the business. And we were all, ‘Harvey gets to do that because he’s got so much power and he’s so successful and his movies do so well and everybody wants to work with him, so you have to put up with it.’
“So that was it. So when [public accusations against him] happened, I was really like, ‘Finally.’ I wasn’t cheering from the rafters because I’m never going to cheer for someone’s demise. I don’t think that’s good karma anyway. But it was good that somebody who had been abusing his power for so many years was called out and held accountable.”
In the article, Madonna also addressed the rumour that she once asked out Donald Trump. A rumour that Madge strongly denies. Madame X is out on June 14th.
