Madonna on Controversial Met Gala Outfit: ‘My Dress Was a Political Statement’
Madonna does what she does. She's the Queen of Pop, and also the Queen of Doing the Most. And if you don't like it, well...let's say she's deeply unbothered.
Naturally, her Game of Thrones-dominatrix lookin', butt and boob-barin' garb at the 2016 Met Gala caught a few choice headlines scolding her for being "too old" for her strap-filled, outlandish ensemble that — clutch your pearls! — exposed parts of her body. Yes, a woman above the age of 35. Imagine!
And, because she is an #UnapologeticFreeTheNippleBitch on social media constantly, Madge caught wind of the criticism — and she's got something to say about it. And it goes somethin' like this...
"We have fought and continue to fight for civil rights and gay rights around the world. When it comes to Women'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 I'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. I'm not afraid to pave the way for all the girls behind me‼️ As Nina Simone once said, the definition of freedom is being fearless. I remain Unapologetic and a Rebel ❤️ in this life and all the others. Join my fight for Gender. Equality! 🙏🏻"
