The worst and the best of pop in one place.
A fearless Madonna stood against government repression and for freedom of speech, taking the biggest stance a Pop Icon has taken in the imprisonment of the Russian Female Pop/Rock Band Pussy Riot, even after the U.S. Embassy’s warning of a possible attack on her MDNA Tour.
The young girls are facing up to 7 years in Prison for an anti Vladimir Putin performance and had pleaded Madonna to take a stance for their freedom. Madonna referenced the band covering her face up just as they did when they made their infamous performance that got them detained, as a message of liberation and a stance against repression and censorship.
Have No Fear.
Madonna is fearless.
Under terrorist threats, protests and censorship, Madonna spoke up about freedom of speech in Russia, defended Pussy Riot, and brilliantly performed Like a Virgin in a “gang-ish” ski mask to top it all.
So fucking amazing.
Not too long ago, in June, Lady Gaga canceled her show in Indonesia after protests from Islamics who believed her sexy clothes and dancing would corrupt youth.
Gaga is a fucking joke.
Will we ever see the mainstream media drawing parallels between those two? Madonna’s balls, brilliance and courage on one hand, and Gaga’s lack of courage on the other?
