“We liked each other.” Even if he has never stopped loving Asia Argento, in this case Morgan is not talking about her, but about Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni. “When I write to her, she always replies to her messages,” says the musician in the Sunday interview with Corriere della Sera edited by Aldo Cazzullo, where he talks about love, politics and his imminent new program on Rai. “We were at Door to door – he continues recalling when he met the Prime Minister – I had to amend my statements on drugs, she as Minister of Youth was there to attack me. But she didn’t. We liked each other. Some time ago, since I didn’t like the Draghi government, I surveyed my 300,000 Instagram followers: who is in opposition? They answered: Giorgia Meloni. So I wrote to her», says the voice of the recently reunited Bluvertigo.
«I wanted Sgarbi to be Minister of Culture»
The singer explains that he asked Meloni “if she was willing to do something for culture, for music. A dialogue was born, which continues. With everything you have to do, you find the time to answer me. She didn’t get too big, she remained: the mother of her daughter, the friend of her friends. A workaholic.’ When asked about voting, however, Morgan goes astray: «I’m an anarchist, how could I vote? Right and left seem outdated to me» Even if he says it was he who suggested an institutional role for his friend Vittorio Sgarbi: «Minister of Culture». Meloni opposed a cordial no, but he promised he would think about it. A close result: Sgarbi is now undersecretary.
The love for Asia Argento and the new relationship
From political love we pass to romantic love. The former X-Factor judge recalls his relationship with Asia Argento. “I never stopped loving her,” he says, adding that the story ended “because she left me.” «When a man loves it is forever. It’s women who leave us», the singer declares, who lets himself go: «I had to accept the terrible pain of separation, a hell that looks a lot like death. Then the survival instinct prevails. But I will never say “I hate you” after saying “I love you”. Even if Asia evicted me from home: a shot under her belt ». Water under the bridge, because now Morgan is «with Maria Eco’s mother, Alessandra. She is my Dori Ghezzi, my Claudia Mori: my strength. I need to have a calm, balanced, practical person by my side: he completes me».
The new program on Rai
Sgarbi had announced it: a Rai program is on the way for Morgan. «Four evenings dedicated to music. In April, with Pino Strabioli». The name of the program derives from the names of the musician and the actor: StraMorgan. “And it will be real public service,” adds Morgan. «We will have young musicians and great guests. We will show that light music does not evaporate; it’s something that makes you fly”. This time, therefore, on TV as a protagonist. Not like when he participated in Sanremo with Bugo in 2020, he recalls: «I was used, bullied, mobbed. I was supposed to sing and conduct the orchestra; I ended up being the guest of Bugo, who also sang my part of the song. So on the final evening I paid him back » in a moment now cult of the Festival.
