Ugh, Madonna. Just accept that people didn’t like your look, okay?
After making a big deal about being photographed alone on the red carpet, Madonna is now saying she Ã¢â¬Åcaused controversyÃ¢â¬Â instead of just trying to shock people with stuff she already did like 20 years ago.ÃÂ Madonna took to Instagram to Ã¢â¬ÅdefendÃ¢â¬Â her Met Gala look…and is pretty much saying that if we don’t like it, we’re all sexist and ageist:
We have fought and continue to fight for civil rights and gay rights around the world. When it comes to WomenÃ¢â¬â¢s rights we are still in the dark ages. My dress at the Met Ball was a political statement as well as a fashion statement. The fact that people actually believe a woman is not allowed to express her sexuality and be adventurous past a certain age is proof that we still live in an age-ist and sexist society. I have never thought in a limited way and IÃ¢â¬â¢m not going to start. We cannot effect change unless we are willing to take risks By being fearless and By taking the road leas traveled by. Thats how we change history. If you have a problem with the way I dress it is simply a reflection of your prejudice. IÃ¢â¬â¢m not afraid to pave the way for all the girls behind meÃ¢â¬Â¼Ã¯Â¸Â As Nina Simone once said, the definition of freedom is being fearless. I remain Unapologetic and a Rebel Ã¢ÂÂ¤Ã¯Â¸Â in this life and all the others. Join my fight for Gender. Equality!
Now, I’m all about women doing what they want, when they want it. The freedom of choice is a beautiful thing, and something we’ve worked long and hard for. BUT- Madonna isn’t talking about the “right” to make choices…she’s complaining that we don’t fall over ourselves exalting the choices that SHE MADE. It just kind of sounds whiny and ultimately, sad.
