Madonna Fearlessly Supports The Gay Community In Russia Even Though It's Illegal!

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayMadonnaMusic MinuteYouTubeLGBT

That's our gurl!

Although Russia's Deputy Prime Minister has labeled Madonna a slut for trying "lecture everyone on morality," she's not even remotely deterred from sticking up for what is right!

She took to a St. Petersburg stage on Thursday night (even amidst bomb threats) to entertain her fans and continue to spread a positive message about "love" and equality.

Madge urged the audience to show their "love and appreciation to the gay community” by quoting civl rights leader Martin Luther King Jr..

Watch the video (above) at the 2:20 mark to hear why she believes "the gay community and gay people here and all around the world have the same rights to be treated with dignity, with respect, with tolerance, with compassion [and] with love!"

And remember! She delivered this wonderful speech even though promoting homosexuality to the young is illegal in Russia.

Did anyone else's admiration for the Queen of Pop just shoot through the roof or is it just us?

    I know that some of you will either : 1. Blast Perez or 2. Blast the gay community…. but, I will say this. No matter how "dramatic" she can get, Madonna is making a statement. She is standing up for inequality and hate. This is the gay community, and this is how we are handling this. We will do whatever we can to get the equality that we deserve.

  2. 2

    This made me cry. Too much damn hate in the world. He told us not to judge, He told us to love one another as He loves us. I don't get why people pick and choose things from the bible. Even if he said it is wrong, BITCH He said let him deal with it. Our job is very simple. Just live in peace and chill the f*ck out.

    What a stupid, ignorant bitch. I'm referring to Madonna and blondy7.

  4. 4

    I have mixed feelings on this. On one hand, I agree with her message of tolerance and acceptance, but when you are a guest in someone else's country, I think you should leave your politics at home.

    Re: blondly7 – Perez gets blasted because he deserves it. He is a selfish, lying, hating, bullying hypocrite, and the gay community would do well to denounce him. "We" aren't "handling" anything. Madonna is making a statement, YOU aren't. And no one is listening to her, except the gays. Celebrities don't change minds. Quiet, reasonable, intelligent dialogue does. You'll get equality when the rest of us say you should have it. We don't owe you acceptance of deviant behavior.
    Re: trinigirl123 – You're an idiot. Jesus did not embrace homosexuality. He didn't even address it. But back in his day, I doubt there were many open gays. If "His" father made it clear that homosexuality was an abomination — and He did — Jesus didn't see fit to change that condemnation. It's not about hate. I have several gay friends and love them dearly. But I'm opposed to gay marriage. Why do morons like you have to call it "hate" because some of us don't want to give way? Have you nothing better to offer? We can all live in peace, shithead, but gay is deviant and wrong. And no one cares if you don't like that. It's called freedom. So fuck off.

    I love it when people say its not "hate" and try to justify it first simply as being "their opinion" only to follow up by saying its wrong, deviant, disgusting, immoral, and against the word of "God." I'll give you one thing, yes it is just YOUR OPINION, but by no means is it a fact. And yes, it is HATE when you tell someone how they can and can NOT live their life and yes you are doing EXACTLY that. Christians, Catholics, Jews, Muslims, Hindus or anyone else can NOT claim ownership of marriage and what constitutes a marriage. In this supposed land of the free, I find it funny that people weasel their way into other people's lives only to later say "what you do behind closed doors is your business." Then why the fuck are you all so worried about what everyone does? The worst thing is this shouldn't even be an issue, its a non issue. We don't want or need your church to recognize marriage equality, we want the court to recognize it considering there is a VERY clear cut separation of CHURCH AND STATE in our constitution. To put it simply: Don't like gay marriage? Don't marry someone of the same sex, no one is forcing you to, no one is taking anything away from you. So why are people so hell bent on taking rights or keeping rights away from others? And really "yes your bore me?" His father made it clear? Are you willing to bet your life on that?

    I am all for equality, But Madonna is a hot mess right now, I would not want her to back me up on any of my beliefs, she is going about her political agenda all wrong, people are paying to see her in concert, and she is potentially putting many lives in danger, do what Bono does, he meets with political figures to try and solve international civil rights issues.

  12. 12

    Russian prison would do her good

  13. 13

    Have to say, I don't think this is appropriate. While I agree with her message and wish the world would be more tolerant, Russia isn't her home country and she should respect the fact she's there to entertain and leave her politics back in…whatever country she thinks she's from now….

  14. 14

    Hate he or love her one things is for certain: She has guts and that is extremeley brave of her to do this in a foreign land.

  15. 15

    Madonna is getting BORING. Yes, its lovely she still loves the GAYS, but this tour is just awful. I saw the show in London and yes the shiny lights are great and the set is great, but she is above and beyond BORING. Long live GAGA!!!!

  16. 16

    I guess concert goers have become inured to her pathetic displays of wrinkly old tit and bony maroney ass. Now she has to lecture people to generate controversy. Meanwhile, back in Michigan, her brother lives under a bridge.

    Re: pdrocksmysocks

    Her ego's out of control. Look at the mess she made in Malawi and then ask yourself whether she should be involving herself in politics. Her fame far outweighs her intelligence and that is quite terrifying.

    She's surrounded by security all day every day. Maximum exposure, no risk.

    "HairLez" you've been blocking me for over a week now. I hit something, no? Here is the fact. Any disagree with homosexuality, even though they say no hate, they are hateful and homophobic. So if you disagree with marriage between a man an wife, you would honestly put yourself in that same catagory that you worship at. Let me ask you this. Where does your two sided street take a fork?

    Re: piacci

    I'm sure you made some really good points. It's just that our English is so poor I didn't understand any of them. Would you like to try again..?

    If what she did is illegal, they should throw her ass in jail.

  23. goddessmadge says – reply to this


    Re: AnnaM – You clearly don't know crap about the truth behind Maawi, you ignorant fuck! The reason there's so much drama surrounding it is b/c the media twists everything related to her as negative! As a matter of fact, the reason the audit on her charity was comissined is b/c Madge herself got the Global Philantropy Group to do so after she became suspicious as to how the money invested into it (including hers) was being handeled by Rasing Malawi's board of directors (which she wasn't a member of). This later ensued into her firing & replacing them. Yet, the worst part is that many of those peole, apparently protected by Malawi labor laws, sued her for wrongful dismissal.

    And if you're gonna bring up her proposed schools in Malawi, which have yet to be built (according to the media), there's been a slight change in plans. Those at the GPG sugested that it would be a better idea as to fund education programs than to build schools. And that is their new initiative, for Malawi is still one of Madonna's priorities.

    So if you're gonna eat up the anti-Madonna shit that the media has been serving for the past 30 years, fuck u!

    when politicsRe: Phibes – I always knew you were her brother! holding a grudge there huh?? lay off the drugs mother fucker… anyway, those saying she should stick to entertain and not mix politics are way out of place and ignorant! first art can be mixed with politics, art is supposed to generate a response, a feeling on the people, and politics can be a way to do that, and second of all: THIS SURE ENTERTAINS ME!

    Re: goddessmadge

    She's not a goddess she's a woman. And a business woman at that not an artist. That you would refer to her as a goddess rather than a woman shows how off-centre your views are and therefore anything you say cannot be taken seriously.

  32. Saint Thomas says – reply to this


    Re: alphaomega – I was agreeing until you said Madonna is not an artist but a business woman only… with that you show you don't know what the concept of art is… therefore your comment cannot be taken seriously

  33. alphaomega says – reply to this


    Re: Saint Thomas

    There is nothing wrong with being a business woman. She has, as any fan knows, increasingly spent time on projects away from her art: perfumes, clothes, gyms etc. That's not to say that she wasn't a great pop artist for a significant period of time. And she would keep saying that she was an artist. But she no longer discusses herself in terms of art. And her relationship with her audience increasingly revolves around business. Look at the Olympia show as an example of getting her audience to pay for the promotion of her single. It's hardly a criticism. She has evolved.

  34. Saint Thomas says – reply to this


    Re: alphaomega – of course there's nothing wrong with being a business woman, in fact she is the best at it, and yes she has being doing lots of different works involved mainly on the business area, but still Madonna is an artist, she still is, her album, MDNA, which may have not been doing very well on sells (which I disagree) is a proof of her artistry, lyrics dont come out of nowhere… nor her voice, after all she sung all those songs, also may I say her MDNAtour is a piece of art, amazing on the eyes and ears quite a show, some will disagree with me, which is natural (you cannot be everyone's cup of tea) but still both her album and her tour are being highly praised by the critics and the fans. Madonna may not be what she was, but she still is at the top of her game and I find it amuzing how a 54yo woman is giving a run for the money to all those 20something girls who at the end of the day are only trying to follow on her steps (and will continue to do so)

    Re: J. – Yes this is her, and if you want ato ask my boss anything, I'll beaceping questions. [sarcasm ends here]

    Re: pdrocksmysocks – I hope for my sake that you are not gay.. because how pathetic that you would not stick up for your gay brothers and sisters just because they are from another country. Thank god Madonna has bigger balls than you do. This is why she is the greatest and most influential performer of our time. If everyone had your same "mind your own business" mentality, there would still be genocide in many countries. Artists have a platform to make a difference, and those with courage use the opportunity to better the world. How dare anyone speak badly about her efforts. For those that do, seriously go fuck yourselves.

    shes just doing what she does in every country pissing someone off
    u wont have to worry soon as the russians and chinese will be on ur doorstep with their over 200 millions troops and the latest in air craft space programs and everything else .

    so keep sucking down the fast food 63% of u too fat too join ur own military …hahaha

    Vladamir is correct! Madonna is an adult entertainer and that's all their is to it. I suppose she's educated herself over the years, nevertheless, she still has the mouth and menality of gutter trash. She is a copy cat artist. Her fans are all hedonistic, depraved losers, anyone with any sensitivty or intellect knows and can see how sickly and false she is. Her words and her speeches are so copy cat and muddled, but I think she likes it like that, she doesn't want to mislead her audience from MDNA because as though she is not talented she is cunning enough and insecure enough to believe that she is the only interst in peoples minds. Madonna you are a sick girl.

    I give her props for taking a stand against homophobia, but I was very little impressed with the speech itself. It was just your average, cliched speech about tolerance and acceptance and compassion. I'd be more moved if it didn't seem like I've heard it 1000x before.

    awesomeness! she's got a voice and she's got an opinion. And she's got an ability to use it on the world stage. Press reports take notice of things she says in newspapers all around the world. People are more interested in what she says than any particular bigot out there. And she's helped changed the world.

    Re: Yes You Bore Me – how can you say you have gay friends who you love dearly and then in the next sentence call being gay "deviant"? Freedom may be one thing but it looks like you need to focus more on the definition of hypocrisy.
