“I remain Unapologetic and a Rebel” – Read Madonna’s Response To Her Risque MET Gala Outfit Criticism
57yrs old music icon, Madonna, was heavily criticized for wearing a backside-and-breast-baring Givenchy gown to the 2016 Met Gala in New York, saying she rocked the revealing outfit to seek attention as she always does.
However Madonna has responded to those criticism and here’s what she had to say:
“We have fought and continue to fight for civil rights and gay rights around the world. When it comes to Women’s rights we are still in the dark ages. My dress at the Met Ball was a political statement as well as a fashion statement. The fact that people actually believe a woman is not allowed to express her sexuality and be adventurous past a certain age is proof that we still live in an age-ist and sexist society. I have never thought in a limited way and I’m not going to start. We cannot effect change unless we are willing to take risks By being fearless and By taking the road less traveled by. That’s how we change history. If you have a problem with the way I dress it is simply a reflection of your prejudice. I’m not afraid to pave the way for all the girls behind me As Nina Simone once said, the definition of freedom is being fearless. I remain Unapologetic and a Rebel in this life and all the others. Join my fight for Gender. Equality!”
