Watch Madonna's Powerful Speech at Women's March on Washington

Madonna made a surprise appearance at the Women's March in Washington to deliver a powerful speech to the hundreds of thousands who gathered in the nation's capital.

'Can you hear me? Are you ready to shake up the world? Welcome to the revolution of love,' Madonna told the marchers. 'To the rebellion, to our refusal as women to accept this new age of tyranny. Where not just women are in danger, but all marginalized people.'

'It took this horrific moment of darkness to wake us the fuck up,' Madonna continued. 'It seems as though we all slipped into a false sense of comfort, that justice would prevail and that good would prevail in the end. Well, good did not win this election. But good will win in the end. So what today means is that we are far from the end. Today marks the beginning; the beginning of our story. The revolution starts here."'

Madonna also had a message for 'the detractors that insist that this march will never add up to anything.' 'Fuck you,' Madonna said. 'Fuck you! It is the beginning of much-needed change. Change that will require sacrifice, people… But this is the hallmark of revolution.'

Madonna's unexpected F-bombs caused CNN and MSNBC to panic and cut away from her mid-speech. Both networks missed the singer quip that, 'Yes I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House, but I know that this won't change anything.'

Madonna then led the crowd through a chant of 'We choose love' before performing a few of her tracks for the marchers, including 'Express Yourself' and 'Human Nature.'

@jeffrey: This is a personal insult. And an incredibly rude one. It is you who is also spewing vitriol now.

To the Madonnalicious Moderator: I request that you remove Jeffrey's comment which is a direct and personal attack against me for exercising my democratic right to vote or NOT. We do NOT live in a country where voting is a legal requirement, such as Australia, and if I choose not to vote, so be it.

He is the type who probably goes on about 'no hate', whilst hypocritically believing it OK to post hateful comments!

@ Melissa
My assumption about you was right. You are an ass. If you didn't vote then keep your mouth shut. You lost the right to say anything. It's people like you who put this vile pig in the White House.

Melissa

@jeffrey: I chose to vote for neither Clinton nor Trump. I chose not to vote at all, in fact. Hillary was spewing vile left-wing vitriol and Trump was spewing vile right-wing vitriol. Both of them are an utter disgrace to this country and both make us look ridiculous on the world stage.

See - we all know what assuming does...

Madonna did an awesome job at the march on Saturday. She spoke her mind like we knew she would and everyone understands that her statement about the Whitehouse was not meant to be taken literally. Let us not forget the threat Mr. Trump hinted at Hillary during the campaign about a 2nd amendment person taking her out and stopping her. Yeah, where was all the outrage then when that was a clear threat to another person? Just take a chill pill everyone and focus on the issues that matter here under this new administration.

@ Melissa
You doth protest too much. Sounds like a trump supporter. I said nothing about anyone who supported him, just called out his team who straight up lies. Alternative facts are not facts, they are lies. You can have alternative opinions of the facts but facts will always be the truth. Yet there you go calling celebrities leftist. I guess the left will show as much respect for the office while trump is in there as the republicans and tea party people did when Obama was in office. Always remember you will reap what you sow, and trump and his team has sowed nothing but fear, hatred and intolerance, which will come back to them two fold.

Madonna. ! You are my new hero.
Love the talk. Donald Trump started your type of redorick.
He doesn't' hold back thoughts. He throws it all up in our faces.
You go girl I am here with you !

Melissa

@jeffrey: You mean this administration that has only just started? Another democracy hater - and, as I have said before, I am no fan of Trump.

Melissa

Madonna is just another celebrity Leftie who hates democracy... unless it goes her way. I am no fan of Trump but, under the US electoral system, he won. End of. I'm still waiting for all those celebs to move to Canada... but they won't, they are all mouth.

Barbara

Not happy about your comments about blowing up the White House. Your sick and really think your important.

bry

Bravo Madonna! Thank you!

jeffrey

Awesome! Power to the people! We cannot let this dictatorship of an administration steamroll this country with outright lies! We seem to be living in a fact free country right now and this cannot be normalized because nothing about this or this now president is normal. He will be called out on his own delusional reality!
