If you're wondering why Madonna has been quiet for a while, it's because she moved to Portugal. The pop icon revealed on Instagram that she relocated to the European country, and the new place is making her creative juices flow.

"The energy of Portugal is so inspiring," she captioned the post on Saturday (September 2). "I feel very creative and alive here and I look forward to working on my film LOVED and making New Music!!! This will be the next Chapter in My Book! It's time to conquer the world from a different vantage point!!"

She also posted a photo of baskets and other woven pieces hanging from the ceiling of what looks to be a kitchen. In the caption she revealed that she was living in Lisbon.

While we're looking forward to all her new endeavors, Madonna did open up to Harper's Bazaar regarding the film she's been working on, Loved.

"It touches on a lot of really important topics I've always invested in or championed — fighting for women's rights, gay rights, civil rights — always fighting for the underdog," she said of the movie."
