Madonna Clarifies Her Women's March Speech; "We Choose Love"

by VVN Music

Madonna has issued a statement trying to explain the speech she made yesterday in Washington during the women's march.

The singer has come under fire from both sides for her rhetoric during the speech, not only for using the "F word" a number of times, enough to have the speech cutoff by CNN, but also stating that she thought about blowing up the White House.

Now, in her statement, she says that she is not a violent person and that she "spoke in metaphor and I shared two ways of looking at things".

Madonna's full statement:

Yesterday's Rally. was an amazing and beautiful experience.

I came and performed Express Yourself and thats exactly what i did. 

However I want to clarify some very important things. I am not a violent person, I do not promote violence and it's important people hear and understand my speech in it's entirety rather than one phrase taken wildly out of context. 

My speech began with " I want to start a revolution of love." ♥️ I then go on to take this opportunity to encourage women and all marginalized people to not fall into despair but rather to come together and use it as a starting point for unity and to create positive change in the world.

I spoke in metaphor and I shared two ways of looking at things — one was to be hopeful, and one was to feel anger and outrage, which I have personally felt. However, I know that acting out of anger doesn’t solve anything. And the only way to change things for the better is to do it with love. 

It was truly an honor to be part of an audience chanting “we choose love”.
