What goes around, comes around. Madonna is learning that very important lesson this week after watching other big names within the music industry turn on her for the deplorable comments she made at the Women’s March last Saturday in Washington D.C. Indeed, it didn’t take long for the smug singer to be handed some bad news after threatening to “blow up the White House.”
In a profanity-laced speech to attendees which included four F-bombs, Madonna famously said, “I’m angry. Yes, I am outraged. Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House. But I know that this won’t change anything. We cannot fall into despair. As the poet W. H. Auden once wrote on the eve of World War Two, ‘We must love one another or die.’ I choose love. Are you with me?”
If her angry comments rubbed you the wrong way, don’t worry, you aren’t alone. Famed 80’s singer Cyndi Lauper also felt that Madonna’s off-color remarks went too far. During an appearance with Sir Rod Stewart on the Bravo television show Watch What Happens Live, Lauper made it clear that she does not stand with her fellow entertainer.
“I think it happens a lot when you are really jacked up, feeling your emotions. I don’t think it served our purpose because anger is not better than clarity and humanity,” Lauper told host Andy Cohen. “Yelling doesn’t [work]. It just jacks people up but it doesn’t communicate any type of humanity or any kind of story that would open another person’s mind.”
For her part, Madonna defended her comments at the Women’s March in an Instagram post, saying her words were “taken wildly out of context.”
Many of the liberal idiots who attended Saturday’s Women’s March on Washington humiliated themselves, whether it be through embarrassing homemade signs or ridiculous “pussy hats,” though no one walked away looking quite as insane and out-of-touch as Madonna. Cyndi Lauper is right about the fact that you don’t get anywhere by yelling and screaming various obscenities; rather, level-headed common sense always prevails.
