    Okay, so I wasn’t gonna post in this flame baiting thread but let me give my two cents: - Madonna is very proud of her children and she enjoys giving them a platform to show off their talents. She’s incredibly supportive in that regard. - Her son is a teen whom she adopted as a baby and has raised as one of her own. It’s VERY likely that he never really faced the type of oppression and discrimination of systematic racism because he was essentially raised with all the possibilities and privileges that most white people (rich ones in particular) grow up with. That is all thanks to his mom using her status, money and privilege to further her children’s interests in sport, music, fine art and giving them the chance to do whatever they wanna do. - That said, he probably doesn’t know or understand the problematic meaning behind all lives matter. Now, imagine you are his mother and he did something he is proud of. Would you tell him: “Do it again, you cannot say that cause I’ll get dragged for it.”? Or not posting it at all or with the end cut off? That would be really shitty and I’m sure each and every one of you would feel bad about it if it was your child Also, this thread is clearly dragging Madonna’s children into a BG debate. She herself has not associated herself with #alllivesmatter and has not used it. Instead, she has shown a lot of solidarity and action with regards to the BLM movement. She cannot really be held accountable for what her son says or believes in (out of lack of experience and understanding).

    She said "beautiful country". I'm sure she would've made the comment about any country she visited - it's not that deep, literally every artist says x country is beautiful, it's not what I expected blah blah blah What exactly do you want her to say, "Israel is trash?" like sweetie let that one go You can play in a country and not be for or against their policies. I think it's one thing to play for an oppressive government (aka Baku) and it's another to go play for fans.

    The caption of the tweet is literally "Black Lives Matter". All Lives Matter is perceived as problematic (rightfully) within the political context of members who use the statement to sugar coat and dismiss systemic racism. Madonna has been doing the exact opposite of that for the past 2 months, like... 5 times a day. And you know, her most famous video is literally about systemic injustice in the US. If her intentions are still blurry to you about her teaching her kids that all lives are equal, then that's strictly on you and your unlimited willingness to see and analyze things that work for your biased frame of thoughts. Meanwhile Gaga literally politically endorsed Israel, and sang at Baku's European Games and I get called an obsessed delulu every time I bring those up FOTP exploits serious issues to selectively come for certain faves and that's just low, but let's pretend we're cool

    The officer should have known better than to let a man be slowly be put to death for 10 minutes straight under his authority. But you still expressed your "understanding". The pedophile should have known better than to rape multiple underage girls. But you still expressed your "understanding". Madonna posts an innocent video and suddenly your button was pushed. Just admit that you're biased. There's nothing inherently wrong with thinking all lives matter, esp. in a wider context... It's problematic when you're using the statement to ignorantly block BLM or to express some kind of push back. Had she posted this video after months of not saying anything then yes that would 100% warrant a full let's drag Madonna party. But the reality of the matter is that for the past 2 months she's been spamming BLM posts (incl. educational posts, petitions, donations etc) all over her social media like there's no tomorrow, so I think your fake offended ass can take several seats. Anyway don't you have a rapist and a murderer to feel sorry for, carry on

    It's a statement because SJW culture makes it one. It'd be the same exact thing if Adele for example said “Minneapolis was magnificent. The world view of United States is just not reality. It’s in a beautiful place, the people are in good spirits.” Sure there is violence that happens there, but there is also good coming out of those places as well. As in the world thinks America is a joke BUT there are still great people and great things there. She has no obligation to speak on it because she's not from there. Madonna is from the U.S - born and raised, it's completely different, she has first hand experience Gaga placing herself in the Israeli vs. Palestine no matter what, people would've called her a dumb popstar who should mind her own business - and that's what she did. It had nothing to do with right or wrong about the Israeli government. She was talking about her feeling safe in Israel despite them being at war. Let's take a look at the quote below: "I was very confident based on my relationships with lots of internal, political people. We're very lucky to have great relationships with the White House. They let us know it would be very safe while we were there, and I hope to share that with the world so that they know it is safe to be in Tel Aviv right now. But I have to say, and I don't mean this as a suggestion that anything bad would have happened, but I'm a gypsy and I live around the world, so in my mind when I was staying in Tel Aviv - I say this on my song "Gypsy" on "ARTPOP": "Be my home just for the day" - that would have been my home while I was there and it was. ... I felt a beautiful energy when I was there." You're only saying this because you have history there but you need to think from the outside perspective of what it's like to visit a country foreign to you, especially when it's a sensitive matter. You can't bring it up and then say you have no interest because people disagree

    She is there to perform, not as a political diplomat. What was she supposed to say? "Oh they're really a war mongering group of people?" She was speaking on how the people she mingled with treated her. Her saying that Israeli people were kind is harmful? But you generalizing a majority group of people as racist right wingers, is not? I try to see your points the majority of the time, but this one moment I can't even feign to understand you. You act like Gaga openly declared she wanted to bomb someone. I.e. You have no grounds to call anyone an idiot, not when your fav is literally fucking senile. I'll gladly take the warning points for this.

    Ester Dean imo is better, Gaga's songwriting is very... Her. If that makes sense. Her songs are best left to herself than given to anyone else (like Mariah or Madonna for example) instead of someone who can pen for a variety of people (Max Martin and Sia for example)

    She literally said the worldview of Israel is not reality during active war time of when they were bombing innocents... like, chile. I can’t even believe I need to explain to anyone why this is simply a harmful statement make, especially in this specific conflict. Literally no matter how you spin it, its an ignorant and harmful statement. and even praising the Israelis is problematic tbh. Considering the vast majority is racist right winged and pride themselves on their military service. Overall she looked like a clueless idiot and on top of it her show there flopped. Deservedly. My point is that if you’re going to hold Madonna accountable for things like this, then hold Gaga accountable for things like that. But clearly we are already seeing a couple of fake-outraged members trying it with Madge but coming for Gaga’s rescue on far, far...far (x100) worse scenarios but won’t get any attention cause it’s not Twitter hip yet to talk about it and therefore no one here really formed an opinion about it. The sheer ignorance is astonishing.

    I'm sure they'd rather be dry, but at least they're alive. They should stop complaining.

    How are those comparable? Madonna should’ve known better considering she’s an “ally”. Shut up

    Lmfao 69 is a rapist but “omg she didnt look 13!” Floyd’s murderer is free but “omg it was his third shift” Madonna teaches her kids that all lives are valuable while being an ally since day 1 in conservative 80’s America = “ITs QuEsTiOnAbLe oF HeR” @Madonna look at her selective outrage!

    It's pretty obvious from the video that he had no malicious intentions and he's just misinformed. Instead of dragging Madonna and her son (who is still a child), we should try to inform him about why he shouldn't say this as a black person. Then again, you'd think he would know about this already with him being black and Madonna being his mother

    And she keeps posting. She's very active on IG and for the last 1-1,5 month she posts *daily* supportive videos + photos with BLM info and history. I don't know many celebrities that still talk and support the movement at their social media accounts now that it doesn't trend anymore. They don't want to ruin their IG aesthetic anymore i guess. But ofc only something that's considered 'tone-deaf' should make headlines, when it comes to Madonna at least.

    ...Meanwhile what she's actually posting. Yes it's cringey as fuck (those kids are totally disassociated from society, unfortunately it is what it is when your mom is Madonna) and tone deaf but let's not pretend like this is worthy of an outrage when clearly we all know her intentions. The OP should worry more about his fave Lady Gaga saying the media is lying about Israel terrorizing Palestine. But I guess society is still not on that level of woke just yet, so she will get cancelled for it in 2027 maybe. Till then!
