Madonna-disnigga-racist-Instagram

Madonna's Instagram continues to be an unexpected lightning rod of controversy. This time, she posted a faux-tough image of her kid, Rocco, along with a quip hashtagged "disnigga."

Immediately, people were offended. Then, predictably, ostensibly non-racist white people began seething about not "getting" to use a word that black people use all the time, and spinning their wheels about how Madonna isn't a racist.

First, Madonna isn't a racist. #duh You don't have to be crass and point to her children or past boyfriends as so many are wont to do, you just have to look at the totality of her life.

Second, it's not about whether Madonna is "a racist." Unfortunately, when these things happen, people begin debating what's in the heart of the person in question. If you're deciding whether to be someone's fan, then it's appropriate to get into that. But the real issue is: Is that word always offensive? Is it offensive in this circumstance?

Breaking news: One can be a non-racist and say something that is racist or even just racially insensitive.

Gallery from the party above, plus tons more photos of Madonna & others below.

A few hours ago, I was lucky enough to attend the launch party for Madonna's secretprojectrevolution, a 17-minute short film made in conjunction with Steven Klein that's meant to address discrimination and injustice in the world.

Madonna-secretprojectrevolution

I arrived around 9 for the event, then had to kill time until 10 before the doors opened. The e-mail containting the invite had stressed promptness, warning we may not get in if we arrived past 10:45. But too early was no good either. How would everyone get into the Gagosian Gallery between 10 and 10: 45? Turns out the guest list was just that small, maybe 250 people.

MADONNA-ROCCO
For whatever reason, I never dreamed Rocco would be as excited by his mom's career as he seems to be of late. He looks like he's having a blast! Here, he poses in a way that Amen Madonna notes is similar to Mommy's 1988 Cher-esque pose from a calendar shoot. Chip off the old (who are you calling "old"?) block.

Madonna Loves A Good Brazilian Comments (9)

Madonna-MDNA-Brazil
What a warm and relaxed Madonna who gave this bathroom (!) interview to Brazilian journalist Huck, even allowing Rocco to horn in on the situation. This was after she had stormed through a second Miami show and done vocal cool-downs, so it had to be around 2 or 3 in the morning.

In a nutshell, she still uses a tape recorder, likes her kids to work hard but be clean, has raised over $75K for Sandy relief, had geat fun with PSY, might have a surprise in store for Brazil (a country whose music she loves), has shout-outs for her Triangle Bitches/friends, doesn't recommend dancing in high heels, treats her face to eucalyptus and her knees to ice post-show, wants Brazil's president to see MDNA, has not had a single alcoholic drink since her tour began and fetishizes sleep, massages and family meals.

Choice quote is that she is most proud of:

"...giving a lot of people the strength and confidence to believe in themselves, especially marginalized groups, whether it's the gay community or women to feel that they have the freedom, the power, the voice—to give them a voice to speak their mind, to express themselves and say, 'Yeah. Fuck, yeah! I deserve this. And I'm going to go for this.' And I wanna do more."

One of her best, most effortlessly gracious interviews.
