Madonna: The election? "I'm broken"

Everyone knows real-life events aren't really real until kabbalist Madonna has weighed in. Madge has finally spoken about the presidential election.

She tells Harper's Bazaar she kept vigil on election night with two religious texts, the Quran and Zohar.

She prayed Hillary Clinton would win. When that didn't happen, the Material Girl plunged into a dark depression that persists to this day. "I wake up every morning and it's like when you break up with somebody who has really broken your heart," says the singer. "And I'm devastated and I'm broken and I have nothing. I'm lost."
