Madonna



I love her so much. They can't break her.



It was an honor for me to Introduce.
Kim Petras and Sam Smith at the Grammys. I had wanted to give the last award which was Album of the year, but I thought it was more important that I present the first trans- woman performing at the Grammys— a History making moment!! And on top of that she won a Grammy!! ♥️

Instead of focusing on what I said in my speech which was about giving thanks for the fearlessness of artists like Sam and Kim- Many people chose to only talk about Close-up photos of me Taken with a long lens camera By a press photographer that Would distort anyone’s face!!

Once again I am caught in the glare of ageism and misogyny That permeates the world we live in.
A world that refuses to celebrate women pass the age of 45 And feels the need to punish her If she continues to be strong willed, hard-working and adventurous.

I have never apologized for any of the creative choices I have made nor the way that I look or dress and I’m not going to start. I have been degraded by the media since the beginning of my career but I understand that this is all a test and I am happy to do the trailblazing so that all the women behind me can have an easier time in the years to come.
In the words of Beyonce “ You-won’t break my soul”,

I look forward to many more years of subversive behavior -pushing boundaries-Standing up to the patriarchy -and Most of all enjoying my life.

Bow down bitches!
 
It's true though. The reason she gets so much backlash is that people sense she will never bend to their will and she will never beg for their approval. It's also true that in addition to her clothes and her artistic output, her body has also been a work of art she has molded according to her creative expression across the decades. Years ago they dragged her for working out and her body looking hard and masculine and now they drag her face and butt. But I'm glad she's 100% aware of what's happening and determined to stay on her path. I admire her force of will and conviction to stay true to herself in spite of what must be deafening noise.
