Madonna has stirred up controversy with almost every tour she’s ever done, so why would it be shocking that in the year 2012 she’s still doing it? It’s not shocking, and it’s not cutting edge—it’s ridiculous. I don’t know why Madonna is still a news story. The 53 year-old mother of three recently made headlines when Dmitry Rogozin, a Russian deputy premier, called her a whore—sort of, technically he called her a “w,” which is apparently Scarlet Letter-speak for ‘whore’.
This happened because Madonna discussed her support of a few Russian punk rockers currently in prison awaiting their verdict (a band called ‘Pussy Riot’). So Rogozin tweeted, “Every former w. wants to give lectures on morality when she grows old. Especially during foreign tours.” He then added, “Either take off your cross or put on your knickers.”
As for me, I can’t believe I have to discuss a tweet war and Madonna … what is the world coming to? Anyway, I don’t get it. Rogozin is right. Madonna was a whore. Straight up whore. She was proud of it, she owned it and I’m not judging her for it, but the woman was loose. Guys, she put out a sex book … and have you seen that book? It is not “art” or “beautiful nudes”; it’s hardcore, fetish, gang bang-like porn. Kind of trampy, I must say, and maybe not necessarily in the way I like, either.
So, what’s the problem? Am I going to get a bunch of comments because I called a spade a spade? Probably not, but Rogozin did. Twitter flooded him messages defending Madonna. Why? Does anyone think Madonna needs someone to fight her battles for her? It’s been 30 years since Madonna came on the scene and she’s heard it all, been called it all, and done it all, so I highly doubt she needs a bunch of Tweeting twits defending her honor. Which brings my point full-circle … Madonna is not honorable, se’s commendable. What she’s managed to do in her career and in this industry is amazing, but she did it by pushing sexual boundaries. She did it by making …
