Madonna defends her anti-Trump speech at women's march

Madonna posted this message on her Instagram page in response to the reaction her Women's March speech:

'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.' โ™ฅ๏ธ 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 doesnโ€™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'. ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธโ™ฅ๏ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธโ™ฅ๏ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธโ™ฅ๏ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธโ™ฅ๏ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ'

Madonna goes topless in solidarity with Katy Perry's naked 'Rock the Vote' video

The Queen of Pop wants to rock the vote - in the buff.

Madonna tweeted plans to cast her ballot while naked in solidarity with Katy Perry after the pop artist released a parody public service announcement through Funny or Die and the nonprofit Rock the Vote.

The provocative 58-year-old pop icon showed off a topless selfie early Wednesday and said she would be supporting Hillary Clinton in the November election.

'I'm voting naked with Katy Perry,' wrote Madonna, hinting that more nude pics for a voting series may be on the way.

Madonna was sporting a grill plate on her teeth for the cropped photo.

The Material Girl has a history of pushing sexually suggestive motifs to encourage young people to complete their civic duty.

Madonna famously draped her bikini-clad body with an American flag for the controversial commercial that aired on MTV, kicking off the first โ€œRock the Voteโ€ drive in 1990. The progressive voter outreach group recruits celebrities to campaign.
