#burningcrosses: Unfollowing Madonna On Instagram Is The New Selma! Comments (0)

After having the temerity to re-post fan-made images showing Bob Marley (okay), Nelson Mandela (WTF?) and Martin Luther King Jr. (Oh, my Oprah Winfrey!!!) in a Rebel Heart motif and expressing her admiration for them, Madonna was promptly destroyed on social media by black people and their ardent defenders who felt Madonna was inappropriately appropriating (inappropriating?) these men for her own commercial purposes.

As usual, the really interesting part wasn't in trying to suss about Madonna's motives, because anyone with a sense of fairness and a working brain could tell what she was going for even if it would be perfectly fair to question whether she achieved it; the really interesting part was reading the logic.

One gay guy started out very fairly, stating he felt it was offensive. He implied something about Madonna's age, but snapped back that it wasn't about her being old when I pointed that out. I didn't back down but didn't lose my cool, but before long, he was blocking me while calling me a pathetic blogger in my forties who's single and blindly devoted to his idol, a sad old woman who is irrelevant.

I'm not sure which aspect of my bio he finds more repulisve—being single, being in my forties, being a fan or blogging. I got the impression it was blogging, which, I mean, he spends his time tweeting, so...

Anyway, it's not even worth 10 more seconds to unpack, but who's the delusional one: The gay guy (me) who is a big fan of a singer's and is critical of her when it's warranted, or the gay guy whose profile announced he's a “regular Joe,” who detests everything about Madonna and who spews all that personal hatred...all because he was so offended that Madonna was being “insensitive?” 

Nelson Mandela would be so proud of the people who scorned Madonna in ageist, sexist and BONUS POINTS racist terms over this misstep of hers. I'm sure now that she's Instagrammed that she doesn't feel she has accomplished 1/100 of what those men have accomplished, Madonna's haters will eat crow or at the very least forgive and forget.

No?

Madonna & Her Manager Say Gaga Diss Song Isn't Comments (0)

Guy-Oseary-Lady-Gaga-Madonna

With the leak of a song by Madonna called “Two Steps Behind” that seems to be about Lady Gaga (if and only if Madonna would be willing to concede that Gaga is “pretty”), the media has already begun whipping up stan wars...and Gaga has Instagrammed an ominous warning to an unnamed witch.

But Madonna's manager Guy Oseary, responding to fan inquiries, has said the song is “NOT about gaga or anyone in particular.” Also, he confirms that the song, currently in unfinished demo form, will not be released.

And Madonna herself has chimed in:

Quinn-Christopher-Jaxon

Adorable modern and go-go dancer Quinn Christopher Jaxon sounds a bit defensive in this recent tweet:

Quinn-Jaxon

I think he's just frustrated because literally everyone not only assumes he's gay (for which they can be forgiven—he's a cute dude with moves like Bianca Jagger who dances in gay establishments and around gay men), but refuses to believe he's straight once corrected.

Sexuality may be on a spectrum, but Quinn seems to be further away from the gay area than most while simultaneously being cool about his gay following. I mean, when I shot him, I was alone with him with a wad of cash in my pocket and believe me, there was every opportunity for him to have made himself available, which he did not. So that takes gay-for-pay off the table, too.

He's pretty chatty, so I assume if anything changes, he'll let us know!

Newsflash: Sometimes, open-minded straight guys are not always secretly gay.
