MTV rolled out the red carpet for Pop matriarch Madonna last night.
The regal singer teamed with the network for the global launch of the video for ‘Medellin’ – the lead release from her fourteenth studio album ‘Madame X’ (due June 14th).
Anchored by the UK’s Trevor Nelson, the special was legitimately a worldwide affair with Sway officiating New York’s participation and Maluma satellite-ing in from Miami. Fans from San Paulo and Milan were also on-hand.
During the 30-minute sit-down, Madge opened up about how her upcoming record came to fruition, the ‘Medellin’ visual, and much more.
Watch the full special below…
On Madonna’s overall inspiration for the new single:
“It doesn’t matter what language people are singing in, or the beat or genre. We will always, in a primal way, be connected through music.”
On her new album being born in Lisbon:
“Basically, I moved to Lisbon to be a soccer mom, and that’s where Madame X was born.”
On the “Medellin” lyric I took a pill to be naive, to be someone I’ve never been:
“When I first started in my career, I was naive but sometimes it’s good to be naive because you’re free and pure in your expression. [With that lyric] I wanted to go back to that time in my life when I was just starting out in New York and I didn’t care what people thought. And that was also during the time when I was 19 and given the name Madame X, and so it has all come full circle.”
Her Madgesty is going all-out to trumpet her return to the Pop landscape.
For, beyond the MTV component, she’ll be taking to the stage at the Billboard Music Awards on May 1st to deliver the first live performance of ‘Medellin.’
Thereafter, she’ll be rocking Eurovision in Tel Aviv.
