So this is the aftermath of the Women's March.
A number of celebrities turned up at the Women's March over the weekend. Madonna's fiery speech garnered a lot of support from women and men taking part in the march. However, the Texas radio station HITS 105, has 'indefinably' banned her songs from the playlists following her outpouring.
"Banning all Madonna songs at HITS 105 is not a matter of politics; it's a matter of patriotism. It just feels wrong to us to be playing Madonna songs and paying her royalties when the artist has shown un-American sentiments. If all stations playing Madonna took their lead from us, which would send a powerful economic message to Madonna," the radio station told Billboard.
The singer, in her speech, publically shared her intentions of blowing up the White House. She said, "Yes, I am 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." The controversial speech did turn a lot of heads.
Post her speech, former Republican House speaker Newt Gingrich came down heavily on her. However, before things blew out of proportions, the singer took to Instagram on Sunday and clarified her stand. She wrote: "I am not a violent person. 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."
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". ????♥️????♥️????♥️????♥️???? #revoltutionoflove♥️#revolutionoflove♥️*******************************************************
The singer was accompanied by celebrities like Scarlett Johansson, Alicia Keys, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus and others.
