Madonna Clarifies Her Remarks Regarding Obama Were Meant To Be 'Ironic'

| Filed under: MadonnaMusic MinutePolitikBarack Obama

Madonna wants to set the record straight concerning her controversial comments regarding President Obama.

It was an ironic statement gone awry!

Here's the singer's statement:

“I was being ironic on stage. Yes I know Obama is not a Muslim (though I know that plenty of people in this country think he is.) And what if he were? The point I was making is that a good man is a good man no matter who he prays to. I don’t care what religion Obama is – nor should anyone else in America”

Here, here sister!!!

However, it just goes to show everybody who is in the spotlight to be EXTRA careful to choose their words wisely!

An ironic remark might be taken in a way that is opposite of what one's original intentions were which we think is what irony's actual definition is?

That word is freaking confusing!

    I call B.S.! She's backpedaling for damage control. What an idiot.



  2. 2

    Her comment was exactly as she meant it, that Obama is a Muslim. Of course there is nothing wrong with be a Muslim, but she sounded like she really wasn't up on the facts. That is as ignorant as it gets. Check the facts and vote for who you think who will make the best president.



  3. 3

    This High School Drop-Out still thinks she's a High School Cheerleader; what a basket case…



  4. 4

    I'd respect her more if she just admitted that she didn't know Obama wasn't Muslim, and just took responsibility for assuming that he was. Get your facts straight before you spout some shit, especially when you're a celeb in the public eye.

    Madonna is a moron. That's not irony, it's stupidity. I'm Canadian and I know Obama isn't a Muslim. Isn't she done being a singer?

    She knows Obama is not a Muslim you stupid idiots. She's been a very big support of his since his first election and made it clear in her shows that she's politically aware of the candidates and their backgrounds. It was obviously done in irony and to laugh at all the delusional Republicans who refuse to believe he is NOT a Muslim and to comment on the fact that we should have diversity in the White House and that that shouldn't matter.

    Can't blame you idiots for never getting her irony. She's been like this in interviews for 30 years and people still don't get on with their lives. The media spins the story and you bitches eat it.

    Ahhhh, whatever…

    If you have to explain you're being ironic, then you're just not good at irony. Kind of like the way she continually has to explain she's an "artist."

    Re: Carlos
    Let me guess. You're one of the "enlightened" ones who gets her brand of irony. You'd probably vote for whomever candidate she endorses as well simply because she said so.

    Irony? I get it…. Kind of like that outfit she's wearing!

    FYI - It's actually "Hear, Hear", not "Here, Here". You know, for future reference…



  13. 13

    I hate that stupid slutty bitch!



  14. 14

    That WHORE promised to STRIP (as an incentive) if Obama gets reelected.
    Who wants to see that SKANK naked at 55 years old?
    I was voting AGAINST Obama anyway… But now she's going to help Romney because who wants to see her now? We have seen enough of her already!



  15. 15

    Obama was once a Muslim and a student of Islam. That's a fact. Obama attended services for 20 years at a racist black church led by the racist Rev Wright. That's another fact. What is up for debate is what good ol' Barry believes now. Does he secretly pray to Mecca five times a day or does he have a hard-on for a dude named Jesus? Who knows but Barry sure as shit isn't much of a Christian nowadays. Does he even go to church? Nah, too busy golfing and smoking cigs.

    It's "hear," not "here." But, of course, you're as big a dumb fuck as Madonna, so it's to be expected.

    Oh she's trying to be ironic, i see. Never ever has this woman actually owned up to anything, she always has an answer ready, and as usual she always tries to pass it off as thought-provoking social commentary…it would just kill her to have to admit she has foot-in-mouth disease because then she would have to admit to something most people already know about her: she's just a moron with a lot of money and a lot of followers and as such, feels herself to be someone of importance. I wish people like her would just stick to what they know, she has no business getting on her soap box so often. In fact I wish all celebrities would stop thinking being a celebrity in itself is enough of a reason we should all have to hear their opinions. Furthermore, the fact that most of them are arrogant enough to believe they have the ability to sway the opinions of others just because they're in show business is just down right insulting to any person with decent intelligence who is capable of independent thought.

    hi madonna,

    if i want to care about the u.s president's religion, i will. thank you

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – Her profanity ridden wants are such a turn off. Only mindless people buy into tactics like hers. I guess she doesn't want the best for Lola and Mercy. She's all for a Muslim take over and the irony here is she is the one woman always ranting about expressing yourself and freedom of expression. Yep her girls will look great in a burkah. Her message is F the American culture. Fine. Let's pray Romney wins this election because Obama has plans to take the US down and we have entitled idiots like her to thank for advertising his deceit. Also. It's fine to have a political view on who you want to vote for but several of her fans are republicans and her rant was a turn off and insulting to them. She was much more likable the night before when she didn't drag her political agenda into the show.



  22. 22

    does she think she is helping his campaign omg madonna just shut the fuck up



  23. 23

    When will the press STOP giving ink to this ignoramus from Detroit? She has made a career of being controversial, but at 50 she seems like an ignoramus from Detroit!

  26. 26

    Considering that the muslim faith is based on a belief that gays should be executed and that women are a lower-class of beings, everyone should have a problem with that. Fact is, Madonna (and anyone else that is tolerant of muslims) hates gays and is anti-woman.

    Re: Jesus – thanks for pointing out, i was gonna just post something similar to what you posted already.obviously some people like those comments below are very ignorant and they look like school just passed by them. ”poor is the man whose pleasures depend on permission of others” with love MADONNA!



  28. 28

    Oh Madonna….shut up and sing the hits you dumbass! Oh, that's right, she's too much of a "relevant artist" to be a vintage act and sing the hits, so she'll sing her flop singles that failed to chart on the Hot 100 from her bomb of an album. She's insufferable! And this is coming from a lifelong fan whose seen her live 8 times and finally is done with her shit. I've taken the blinders off and hope more fans will do so too. Those fans who paid over $300 to see her b.s. at Olympia in Paris sure did!

  30. 30

    yes madonna was being ironic. she knows exactly that obama was catholic. she said he was muslim to make ppl think, imagine if he was musltm??? anything would change… of course madonna wanted ppl to think that skin colour or religion type means nothing when ur a great person…. she was being ironic, joking to the fact that he could be muslym and make ppls think if it would change anything… no… M is smart… by the way gaga delusional team keeps insulting madonna…. ridiculous i dont know how she let this happen. madonna would never let her team members insult anyone.. oh well gaga is fake

    all I have to say is forget about Obama/Romney both are not going to help you. Start looking into Gary Johnson (Libertarian nominee) or someone like Ron Paul. They will actually help the country. No matter if it's Obama/Romney they're just going to do the exact same thing no matter what they say. Romney will say anything to win and so will Obama and the proof of that is Obama's campaign then becoming president and Romney's flip flopping aswell as both of them having the same campaign donors like Goldman Sachs. Do you really think that a company like that would invest in both if they didn't think they were both going to do the same thing? Also the American people need to demand the fed gone. The fed is a private bank and can print your money when ever they want and as much as they want. No government member is allowed in the Fed. All the money is based on debt. If you want to see how your money really works (you may think it's working for you but really it's against you) you need to go to youtube and after the .com put /watch?v=TyVfViRS_2o this is a video that will show you exactly how it works and why the american people will always be in debt with the fed.

    Re: Gay Republican – you think the Muslim religion is the only one that believes that? Christianity has believed the exact same thing. Women are lower then men, gays should be killed. The bible even says if a women is unpure before she is married she is to be executed. The only difference is that Muslims/Islam is still in some areas very much doing a literal translation of the Quran and the Christians of course at first were doing the same but now they still treat women shitty and gay (not all Christians but some) they just don't execute them.

    Re: Mlington
    Gaga has nothing to do with Madonna's comments or the responses to them, idiot!



  35. 35

    I found it ironic that she has messages of respect printed on her back, yet she didn't RESPECT her fans enough to come out on time in Chicago 9/19. She didn't come out til 10:30PM. The concert was horrible. Time is money. She should be giving us a refund.



  36. 36

    "That word is freaking confusing!" Not it's not. It's just used incorrectly most of the time, and lazy pieces of shit like you refuse to look it up and use it right. Madonna may be a decent entertainer, but she is definitely an ignorant asshole when it comes to politics. The woman shits money, but wants her fan base to think she cares about them and the world by supporting this shiftless, dishonest negro. I'm not fooled, and I don't take political advice from someone with an ego the size of the one she has.



  37. 37

    she was due to fuck up just causing too much trouble so something had to go wrong serves her right

    Re: Lady Who? – your calling someone else a hater what a joke

    This comes from someone who doesnt live in the US!!! Fuck off!! Bye the way, Obuma is Muslim and speaks the language better then English!
    If you were Israel, would you want someone in office with any traces of Muslim in there DNA?? Watch Youtube you fucking losers! Type in Obuma Muslim and the video's will be pouring in, you uneducated puppets………..

    If this dumb bitch likes Obama, that's even more reason not to vote for him.

    I voted for Obama in 2004. I don't care if he is a Muslim, but I DO care if he is a liar. Your article seems to imply that is was okay if he is a Muslim in spite of the fact that he has repeatedly represented himself as otherwise. Be who you are or get out of office.

    Wow this is rich where should I start?

    First of all she looks like a complete fool in that cheerleader costume at 54 years old… Second of all the ironic thing is that she has two opposite groups agreeing with each other. The foolish Obama lovers are pissed at her for making him look like a Muslim and making him look bad (that doesnt take much). And realistic people who realize what a horrible shape he has turned this country into who hate Obama also hate her just because she's an idiot and ugly. It's good to see how many people on this page even realize that Obama is a complete moron and has f'ed up things so bad. Let's see 50% unemployment for college graduates, gas prices over $4 for as long as everyone can remember, housing market is in the toilet, 15 trillion in debt but we're going to reelect him? I certainly hope we have people smarter than that in this country. If he does get reelected it just goes to show what morons we are as Americans that we spend more time watching American Idol and the reality TV than knowing what really he is doing and how he is affecting our lives every day. And by the way, Madonna will say anything to stay relevant because she's such a washed up old hag and no one listens to her music anymore

    Isn't it ironic that a mediocre singer has become one of the super divas of our time. How can anyone explain her stardom?

    At 54 she is still acting like she is entertaining juvenile teenage girls or queens.

    Madonna's endorsement did more harm then good to Obama. Has anyone read her exact words used to endorse Obama?

    For better or worse this is Madonna's endorsement:
    Y’all better vote for f——g Obama, OK? For better or for worse, we have a black Muslim in the White House,” the singer said emphatically into the microphone. “Now, …that’s some amazing s—-t. It means there is hope in this country.”

    Madonna also noted that Obama “is fighting for gay rights” and urged to crowd to “support the man goddamnit!”

    As usual, Madonna easily provokes the ignorant of this world. . And As usual, the predictable reactions further prove her point. It's always entertaining reading the stupid comments. She was pointing out how ignorant it is to care if Obama is Muslim or Christian.. And why is it such an insult to say he's Muslim? Not every Muslim is a terrorist hijacker.

    Re: Snookietoes – Romney/Ryan will do the same thing that Obama's doing. It doesn't matter if you pick a democrat or a republican, both parties are being bought and they're going to do whatever they can do to keep the oil companies happy, and the investors and the fed happy. If you want real change, if any american actually wants real fucking change not a bunch of lies and promises that will never come true, if you really want change then you better start voting for a 3rd party. Start voting for Gary Johnson he can actually make a difference. I'm in Canada so I get to see quite a bit of the nominees/campaigning etc… and here they don't ignore people like Ron Paul or Gary Johnson either. So I'm asking all Americans that are on this site in this comment thread to please look up Ron Paul and Gary Johnson. They don't have the same beliefs those two but they do tend to respect one another very much and they are the only people that will give you real change, and change for the better.

    She never back peddled from this alleged remark:
    "men my age are grumpy and fat and balding"-madonna (allegedly).
    She didnt say "a good man my age is a good man regardless nomatter how bald, fat or old he is". So it doesnt matter what Obama's religion is. He is still a grumpy fat balding old man.

    if you watch the whole video its obvious shes being ironic , shes making fun of how some republicans have been calling him that from day one. She supports obama and his agenda like gay rights etc.



  58. 58

    She's so creepy and authoritarian. Being famous for singing songs produced and created by others should not give you power.



  59. 59

    I heard Perez on the Howard Stern show and it reinforced that he's actually super smart and articulate, he just has a total moron writing these posts.



  60. 60

    i like the way she talks politics, including with a sense of humor, but also with earnestness, and also with bad-ass reminders to not be apathetic and to "give a fuck"
    she has the world stage and papers all around the world printing every possible word she says. I tend to think she's rable rousing politically by having the balls to even joke around like this and speak her mind. it takes serious guts. and now everyone is thinking about it a bit more.
    it's great!! that's another reason why she's fucking awesome.

  61. BOZ says – reply to this


    61

    She can say she is being ironic all she wants (which is obviously damage control) however the truth is this country is in deep trouble because of Obama's agenda and it is nothing to joke about! If he gets reelected you can thank your Hero madonna and all these other mislead celebroties for getting the word out to reelect this guy. When you are paying 8 dollars for gas and when you realize that Obama care is a farce and there are not enough doctors around to care for your health - (appointments yes - doctors no) and when you see our country riddled in debt and slippinginto a 3rd world country status on the world scale - don't whine because if you voted for him you will get exactly what he'll be giving.

    Unquestionably consider that that you said. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the internet the easiest factor to bear in mind of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed even as people consider worries that they just don't realize about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest as neatly as outlined out the whole thing with no need side effect , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
