Following her controversial but impassioned speech at Saturday’s Women’s March in Washington, D.C., Madonna has denied that she plans to blow up the White House
On Saturday, millions of women (and men) all around the world attended marches in response to the inauguration of Donald Trump and the mounting pressures on women’s rights all around the world. Indeed, the marches in the U.S. are being touted as the biggest demonstrations in the country’s history.
In an expletive filled speech, Madonna welcomed the crowd to “the revolution of love” and even performed “Express Yourself” and a new rendition of her track “Human Nature,” in which she took aim the Donald Trump.
However, the singer’s speech was met with controversy when she appeared to say that she’d considered blowing up the White House.
Well, now Madonna has clarified her comments about blowing up the White House.
In an Instagram post, the “Vogue” singer defended her comments, stating that she isn’t a violent person, and doesn’t condone violence.
The Queen of Pop went on to say that she knows acting out of anger doesn’t help situations and that choosing love was the answer.
Similarly, Trump’s Chief of Staff, Reince Priebus, chastised Madonna’s comments.
Similarly, Kellyanne Conway, a senior White House aide who recently defended Trump’s press secretary Sean Spicer by saying that his decision to hold a conference in which he shared false information and lies about the attendance numbers of Trump’s inauguration was him providing “alternative facts,” also criticized Madonna.
In a statement, one US official told The New York Post that Madonna’s statement will indeed be evaluated.
It’s unclear at this time whether Madonna will indeed become the center of an investigation.
