Madonna made a surprise appearance at the Women’s March on Washington and dropped several F-bombs during her pre-march rant.
On Saturday, the singer gave an expletive-filled speech that urged attendees to rebel and refuse the “new age of tyranny.”
“Are you ready to shake up the world? Welcome to the revolution of love, 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. Where being uniquely different right now might truly be considered a crime. It took this horrific moment of darkness to wake us the f*** up.”
Madonna spewed anger over Trump’s presidency: “Yes, I’m angry. Yes, I am outraged. Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House. But I know this won’t change anything. We cannot fall into despair.” She insisted that everyone should “choose love.”
The Queen of pop said the demonstration was only “the beginning” of a revolution against opposing forces.
“It seems as though we had all slipped into a false sense of comfort, that justice would prevail, that good would win 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, the fight for the right to be free, to be who we are, to be equal. Let’s march together through this darkness and with each step know that we are not afraid, that we are not alone, that we will not back down, that there is power in our unity and that no opposing force stands a chance in the face of true solidarity. And to our detractors that insist that this march will never add up to anything, f*** you. F*** you. It is the beginning of much-needed change, change that will require sacrifice.”
She ended by performing a few mega hits, including “Express Yourself” and “Human Nature,” which she dedicated to “DT,” or as she explained. the “D” could stand for “d***” instead of “Donald.”
