Madonna to Receive GLAAD’s Advocate For Change Award

LGBTQ advocacy organization GLAAD has announced plans to honor Madonna with their Advocate for Change Award at the 30th annual GLAAD Media Awards. Reserved for public figures who have dedicated their work to advocating for LGBTQ rights, Madonna is the second person to receive the honor after Bill Clinton in 2013.

The GLAAD Media Awards honor artists, journalists, film and television programs and other forms of media for fair and inclusive representations of the LGBTQ community. The ceremony will take place over two days beginning on March 28 in Los Angeles and culminating with the presentation of Madonna’s honor in New York City on May 4.

Madonna has made innumerable contributions to LGBTQ visibility, including her continued employment and support of LGBTQ backup dancers, speaking out against bullying of LGBTQ youth and related suicide, and boycotting the Boy Scouts of America for their LGBTQ-exclusionary policies (to name a few).

“Madonna always has and always will be the LGBTQ community’s greatest ally,” said Sarah Kate Ellis, GLAAD’s president and chief executive. “From the HIV crisis to international LGBTQ issues, she fearlessly pushes for a world where LGBTQ people are accepted. Her music and art have been life-saving outlets for LGBTQ people over the years and her affirming words and actions have changed countless hearts and minds.”

Madonna hits back at haters who criticized her for Aretha Franklin Speech

After raising eyebrows at the MTV VMAs with a speech seemingly dedicated to the late Aretha Franklin, Madonna is explaining her side of the story.

Before presenting video of the year to Camila Cabello on Monday night, the pop star, 60, outlined the role the Queen of Soul — who died Thursday of pancreatic cancer at 76 — had played in launching her own career.

After recalling her years of struggling as an artist and a specific audition during which she sang Franklin’s smash hit “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman,” the singer concluded: “So you’re probably all wondering why I’m telling you this story. There’s a connection, because none of this would’ve happened — could’ve happened — without our lady of soul. She led me to where I am today and I know she influenced so many people in this house tonight, in this room tonight, and I want to thank you, Aretha, for empowering all of us. R-E-S-P-E-C-T. Long live the queen.”

Madonna was hit with criticism on social media afterwards, with many saying she made the moment about herself instead of about Franklin.

MTV VMA 2018 silver horns

On Tuesday, the star posted a photo of herself posing with Cabello at the awards show and explained her speech was never meant to be a tribute to the late entertainer.

“I was asked to present video of the year by MTV! And then they asked me to share any anecdotes I had in my career connected to Aretha Franklin! I shared a part of my journey and thanked Aretha for inspiring me along the way,” she captioned the photo.

“I did not intend to do a tribute to her! That would be impossible in 2 minutes with all the noise and tinsel of an award show. I could never do her justice in this context or environment. Unfortunately most people have short attention spans, and are so quick to judge. I love Aretha! R.E.S.P.E.C.T.,” she continued.

Since the legend’s death last week, there have been a flood of tributes from her fellow musicians and other pop culture luminaries. Ariana Grande shared her love for Franklin on social media, and later delivered a tearful version of “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman” on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

Soul greats like Cissy Houston, Gladys Knight, and her old Detroit friend Smokey Robinson have made public remembrances, as did former President Obama — who invited Franklin to sing at his inauguration in 2009.

Madonna's 10 best weird songs you'll never hear on the radio

Madonna built her empire on pristine pop that still resonates on the radio today, but a master of any form knows how to expertly break the rules, defy expectations, and just get weird or goofy, as well. Nestled in her discography of pure pop bops is a recurring trend: off-the-walls sonic experimentations, songs with lyrics that weave in influences from unusual sources like beat poetry and religious chants, and some purely for-the-club collaborations. After all, this is not a woman who got her start on The Mickey Mouse Club, but rather by drumming in a rock band, hanging with Lower East Side art scene luminaries, and once, while still working as a nightclub coat check girl, opening for the Smiths. She was basically the early '80's version of a hipster, and sometimes that art kid and club kid past still jumps out.

While you may tune to greatest hits comps like Celebration or The Immaculate Collection today to celebrate Madge's 60th birthday, the portrait of Madonna as a musical artist isn't quite complete without a trip into the weirder and less celebrated parts of her oeuvre. Here, a collection of Madonna's less heralded, wonderfully oddball tracks.

Madonna at 60: a tribute to a music, fashion and feminist icon

On the eve of her 60th birthday, Stylist explores how Madonna changed everything, from sex to music to gender politics

In December 2016, 58-year-old Madonna stood before the world accepting Billboard’s Woman of the Year Award. “Thank you,” she began. “For acknowledging my ability to continue my career, for 34 years, in the face of blatant misogyny, sexism, constant bullying and relentless abuse.”


“When I first moved to New York I was a teenager, it was 1979 and New York was a very scary place,” she carried on. “In the first year I was held up at gunpoint, raped on a rooftop with a knife digging into my throat […] In the years to follow I lost almost every friend I had to Aids, or drugs, or gunshot. As you can imagine, all these unexpected events helped me not only become the daring woman that stands before you, but it also reminded me that I am vulnerable. And in life there is no real safety except self-belief.

In the first 60 seconds alone of her 10-minute address, Madonna reminded us of the struggles, impact and glorious defiance of the single most pioneering sexual freedom fighter in the history of popular music. One year before the #MeToo movement erupted Madonna was still pioneering, spelling out – before Hollywood finally located its voice – the violence, fear and oppression that women endure to this day. Perhaps most astoundingly of all, this was never her primary purpose: the first was to fill our hearts with all that world class, joyous, staggeringly euphoric pop music.”
