Madonna's Fearless Fight for Freedom and Gay Rights
A fearless Madonna stood against government opression and for freedom of speech, taking the biggest stance a Pop Icon has taken in the imprisonment of the Russian Female Pop/Rock Band ***** 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.
***** Riot on their performance:
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.
Update: Madonna's Speech for ***** Riot's liberation
Now, I wonder if anything will actually come from this. Can she donate money towards bail or anything? She really should if she can, she definately has enough.
The woman who introduced the world to the cone bra does not slope off into irrelevance. The woman who slapped a Chihuahua dressed as a gimp on the bum does not dissolve into a humourless, banal heap. She is Madonna and will continue to do Madonna-like things until she dances merrily off this mortal coil.
