Tori Amos Defends Madonna Against The Haters! Supreme Songstress Solidarity!
Tori Amos will not allow people to hate on Her Madgesty!
Tori pointed out that the fact Madonna finished her performance, which is why she’s THE queen!
“Madonna is an entertainer. There are very few people who could’ve gotten up off that floor.
It wasn’t because of her that she fell, but it was because of her that the performance carried on. Some of the vilification comes from women as much as men.
She’s making choices and she’s able to do things physically that a lot of people 25 years younger can’t; she got up and refused to allow that to shame her.
I think people want her to be shamed into a role that they find acceptable for her age. It makes me sad that we can’t embrace Madonna and say, ‘Wow, this is an artist who’s expressing herself in a certain way’.”
Well said, Tori! Tell those haters!
If that were set to piano music, we would totally put it on our workout mix!
