I Saved This Seat For You: Times Madonna Did The Absolute Most
When it comes to music, I’m a fan of Madonna. “Human Nature”? “Take A Bow”? “Vogue”? Madge has hits for days. But when it comes to her antics outside of the music? Can’t say I’m a fan. And this isn’t an ageist slideshow where I tell her that she’s too old for a lot of her antics. Not at all. This is just a genuine observation of the fact that Madonna has been doing a lot for attention. You could say that’s been the case for her entire career, but over the last few years, the pop star has been doing the absolute most. The kiss with Drake was tame compared to all this…
That Time She Called Her Son The N-Word
We all have cute names and terms of endearment for our loved ones, but when Madonna referred to her son, Rocco, as “disnig**a,” she couldn’t get people to buy that the n-word was an acceptable term of endearment for her boy. After apologizing for her use of the word (and saying she had good intentions), Madge would go on to repost the photo and tell her critics, “get off my d**k haters!”
Considering that she has two black adopted children, she should know better.
Drinks On Rocco…
Taking and posting a picture of your 13-year-old son and his underage friends posing with alcohol? Bad move. This explanation for it?
“Guys – calm the f#ck down!!! They are just holding the bottles…I took a pic of my then 2 year old niece with a wine bottle in her hands..posted it on facebook…everybody found it funny & NO ONE reacted like some of you guys did!!!”
An even worse move.
This Whole Performance
The cape, the minotaurs, and the song were all just too much, but the fall definitely didn’t help…
That Time She Asked Her Fans About Molly
That’s the question she asked at the Ultra Music Festival in 2012 in front of a large (and young) crowd of electronic dance music fans. I guess you could say it was her attempt at being hip…
Flashing Her Fans
When she’s not asking her fans about Molly, she’s flashing them. That’s exactly what Madonna did on stage in 2012 when she whipped out a whole lot of areola during her concert in Istanbul.
Wearing A Grill On More Than One Occasion
We’re still doing that? I thought grills went out with Paul Wall and the whole host of rappers who flaunted them years ago…
Reminding Everyone That Tupac Was Her Boo
Not only did she say that they dated, but she also claims that he often riled her up with his views on the world and made her feel “very gangsta.”
Using The Charlie Hebdo Massacre To Promote Her Music
It’s one thing to give your condolences when a tragedy happens, but it’s another to use a massacre to promote a new album. Her intentions were probably not bad, but Madge was heavily criticized after she hashtagged the name of her new album and song in Tweets about the deadly shooting at the French weekly:
“We must respect AlL religions! But we must also RESPECT human life!! Killing in the name of G*D is man’s idea not G*D’s!!!!#livingforlove #rebelheart“
That Time She Wore a Niqab Because She Was Bored
Madonna knew her choice to rock a traditional Muslim cloth usually worn as a symbol of modesty and cultural identity was inappropriate. Hence the reason she posted the pic with the hashtag “unapologeticb***h” just in case anybody (aka, everybody) wanted to get offended.
When She Did Too Much To Prove She Loves Her Some Obama
I’m all for folks showing love to President Obama, and Madonna tried to do that when she encouraged fans to vote for him during the last election–and then things went left:
“Y’all better vote for f–king Obama, OK? For better or for worse, all right? We have a black Muslim in the White House. Now that’s some amazing s**t.”
The singer would later explain her comments and say that they were a joke, but they weren’t the only time she did the most for our POTUS. She displayed a fake”OBAMA” back tattoo during a concert, and she recently shared her disappointment with the President failing to invite her to meet him at the White House saying, “He just needs to invite me to the White House already. He probably thinks I’m too shocking to be there. I’m serious. If I was a little bit more demure… or if I was just married to Jay Z. Hey, if Jay would only take me as his second wife, then I’d score an invitation.”
