One frisky user asked Madonna if she were a gay man would she be a top or a bottom? The “Girl Gone Wild” singer responded by simply saying, “I am a gay man.” The risque star revealed she has a bong in the shape of a penis , and if she could turn any gay man straight it would be Frank Ocean. (For the record, Ocean has never stated that he is not interested in both women and men. Nor has he ever identified his sexuality .) When asked what the last great drag show she saw was, the superstar said a show happens every night during her “MDNA” concert, in the pit, otherwise known as “The Golden Triangle.” Another Redditor wanted to know what gay icon Marlene Dietrich means to her, to which the singer responded, “[S]he is the archetype of an iconic strong female equal [parts] masculine and feminine.” Things got more serious when she was asked to define hate. A user wondered if some confuse a difference of opinion with hatred. But Madonna contested, responding, “[N]o, having a different of opinion is right hate is intolerance hate is discrimination hate is when you think youre [sic] better than someone else.” Another questioner asked if she would ever help the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community in Africa . Madonna noted that she has already spoken out against the anti-gay laws in Malawi, where same-sex relations are criminalized . She later said that, in order to help world peace, religions and politics should “not get involved with one another” and ” separate church and state .” Although she has spoken out against issues like homophobia and sexism, censorship of artists , such as with Russia’s Pussy Riot, is currently driving her creative voice. She hinted that there “might be” a new album in 2014 , since her “creative juices are flowing.” Related on HuffPost: Madonna, “The Virgin Tour”, June 1985 Madonna salutes on her 2012 MDNA tour.

Lip-locks with Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera Aug. 27, 2003 The queen of pop met the princesses of pop when Madonna took the stage with Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera to perform “Hollywood” and “Like a Virgin.” It seems like just a cool pop-culture moment until Madonna locked lips with her younger counterparts, shocking viewers and Justin Timberlake. 4. “Justify My Love” video banned December 1990 “Justify My Love” is arguably the most controversial video of all time, and MTV responded by banning it from the network. Madonna famously appeared on ABC’s “Nightline,” which agreed to air the video once in its entirety, to defend its content, including homosexuality, sadomasochism and seedy hotel-room promiscuity. 3. Masturbation simulation on Blonde Ambition Tour April-August 2010 The Blonde Ambition Tour’s simulated masturbation scene during “Like a Virgin” has lived on thanks to the 1991 documentary “Truth or Dare.” The scene features a pretty convincing mock-orgasm, cementing the singer’s penchant for over-the-top sexuality. 2.

It examines our private prisons. It questions what we do, how we do it, and how we treat others.
