Madonna's citizen of the world tour now continues: Madge is now reportedly moving from New York to Portugal to support her 11-year-old son David Banda, whom she adopted from Malawi in 2006, in his burgeoning soccer career, as he joins the junior squad of the famous Portugese club Benfica.
Of course, as the queen of reinvention, Madonna isn't planning on becoming just any old soccer mom: She's already reportedly bought a £5 million, 18th-century, UNESCO-protected mansion known as the Quinta do Relógio, once owned by the nobleman who reportedly inspired The Count of Monte Cristo, in a hilltop city near both the club's training area and Lisbon.
The decision came after Madonna spent two weeks in the presidential suite at Lisbon's Ritz Hotel—which, by the way, costs £13,000 per night—and, from the looks on her Instagram, went on a regional tour of the most opulent, for-sale castles in town. David, meanwhile, has a French school (tuition: £30,000) in store for him. So it's no extended holiday, that's for sure.
So what will Madonna be doing in one of Europe's lesser cities? For one, probably working on her next movie Loved, an adaptation of Andrew Greer's novel The Impossible Lives of Greta Walls, whose protagonist time travels to three different lives she could have lived (sounds very Madge). Oh, and she'll probably be screaming from the sidelines as usual and posting even more Instagrams of her family.
