The Queen of Pop herself, Madonna, spoke candidly about how she feels regarding modern music. In a word, she finds it “formulaic.”
The singer spoke with Vogue Italia about life in Lisbon, Portugal, where she’s been living for the past year. She said that it’s been a great experience because she’s able to create music without being surrounded by the industry.
“It’s also such 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,” Madonna said. “Something’s gotta give.”
The 59-year-old initially planned to stay in Lisbon temporarily so her son could practice soccer. However, she found herself drawn to the city once she arrived. In addition to the amazing culture, she’s also met some great musicians.
“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. So Lisbon has influenced my music and my work,” Madonna continued. “How could it not? I don’t see how I could have gone through that year without being informed by all this input of culture.”
The pop legend is planning to release a new album by the end of the year. It’ll be her first since 2015’s Rebel Heart.
