Madonna's New Love Affair with Boxing Trainer Josh Popper

The Queen of Pop, Madonna, has reportedly embarked on a new romantic relationship with a 29-year-old boxing trainer, Josh Popper. The news was reported by American media outlets, who claim that the couple met last year, with one of Madonna's sons attending Popper's training sessions.

Popper, who also appears on the popular TV show "Summer House", has been sharing photos of himself with Madonna on his Instagram profile, leading to speculation of a romantic connection. In one post, Madonna wrote, "In a male-driven culture, there are always exceptions."

The Boxing Coach

According to his biography on the Bredwinner website, Josh Popper is a "lifelong athlete and full-time coach." The bio goes on to describe his approach to boxing, stating that for Popper, "boxing isn't just about teaching you to move in the ring but teaching you how to move throughout life." The bio also mentions that "all levels of fighters are welcome" in his training sessions, and that he starts from where each individual is.

A Trailblazer in the Face of Criticism

Despite criticism for her choice in younger partners and comments on her physical appearance, Madonna remains unapologetic. After appearing at the Grammy Awards, she was subject to criticism for her appearance, to which she responded, "Instead of focusing on what I said in my speech...

many people chose to only talk about close-up photos of me taken with a long lens camera by a press photographer that would distort anyone's face!!" In a statement, Madonna expressed her belief that the world does not "celebrate women past the age of 45" and that she will be "punished" if she continues to be strong-willed, hard-working, and adventurous.

She declared, "I have never apologized for any of the creative choices I have made nor the way that I look or dress, and I’m not going to start." Madonna sees herself as a trailblazer, paving the way for other women in the future.

She stated, "I understand that this is all a test and I am happy to do the trailblazing so that all the women behind me can have an easier time in the years to come." In the words of Beyonce, "You won't break my soul."
