Did Madonna skip the Met Gala because she was ‘censored’ by Anna Wintour?


Madonna’s still begging for attention on Instagram. She’s no longer content to flash her hairyy pits, clean her bathroom with her tongue, or to call her son the n-word. She’s not calling vegetables “gay this time either.

I took notice when Madonna didn’t show up on the “scheduled attendee” lists for this year’s Met Gala. She almost always attends the event. Last year, she famously displayed her cheeks for the punk-rock theme. Did Anna Wintour have a problem with Madge’s rebellious bum? Madonna did not attend and instead posted a very NSFW Instagram of her proposed costume for 2014. We won’t post the photo here because it features nips. You can see the image on Instagram. The photos shows Madonna’s alleged torso all wrapped up in straps. She’s presumably wearing nothing else.

Madonna’s caption for the photos is “What i wanted to wear to Met Ball but Anna said Not this year! So I’m gonna work on music instead?#artforfreedom.” Madonna even provided a “censored” bar across her rack, but we can see everything anyway.

Is this a message to Anna Wintour, or did Madonna simply decide not to attend this year’s gala? Part of me believes that Wintour told Madge to rein in her butt cheeks only to have Madonna overreact. No matter what, Madonna wants us to notice that she wasn’t at the Met Gala this year. She’s such a rebel.

    I’m not a huge fan of Madonna, the person, but she probably would have come up with something interesting to wear. The Met gala: is it turning into a has-been/wanna-be event, aside from SJP (who has credentials in fashion at least)? When you have Kim K wearing a glorified prom dress (albeit an improvement over the usual choices) has the event jumped the shark?

    • Artemis says:

      Yup, Madonna gets it. She gets tongues wagging which is the whole point of such a high-profile event like the MET. It’s not meant to fly under the radar. At least she commits to it instead of wearing some basic oatmeal supporting actor Golden Globe frock.

      Besides, she wasn’t going to attend because she’s been working on her new album for some weeks now and when she’s working, she’s WORKING.

  2. NewWester says:

    What happened to this woman? Being a rebel is one thing, but now Madonna has just got really strange. She has always liked to push the boundaries but lately it is too much ,even for her

  3. Freebunny says:

    Sure, as if people missed her…

  4. capepopsie says:

    Yeah, she´s such a rebel. Sigh! I wish she would start acting her age.

  5. thinkaboutit says:

    I hadn’t noticed her absence.

  6. PunkyMomma says:

    Madge reeks of desperation, which is so not chic. Who wants to see your 50+ years old boobies and butt? Madge, you can still be relevant without becoming ridiculous – just cover it up, FFS!

    • Artemis says:

      That’s what they said about her Sex book and Erotica album and it still sold. That’s what they said after every album. She was always considered desperate and over. 25 years later…Just saying.

      I would spend my last rent money on this woman her boobs, which btw look better than mine and I’m less than half her age damnit! My homeless ass would get a Ray of Sunlight and warm my soul.

      • SamiHami says:

        No, she was considered cheap and trashy back then. Now she’s cheap, trashy and desperate.

      • Kiddo says:

        She may be desperate, but the woman started fashion trends. People dressed like her. So in that sense, she does have credibility in that arena, as far as the Met Gala goes.

      • Artemis says:


        Please, you clearly forgot that she appropriate so many cultures over and over again? That she showed up in an outfit by Gaultier and let her breasts dangle out of the outfit for the promotion of Erotica? That she dressed like Evita and had a baby stroller with her on the runway during the Evita era? She was pulling far worse stunts in the 90s and they predicted that Erotica would be the era that killed her career. It was too much, even for Madonna so she made a light comeback with Bedtime Stories which showed a softer, more artsy side (e.g.Bjork wrote a song for Hooper for Madonna) and then killed it with ROL.

        If you read any bio about her than you would know that Desperation is her middle name. She craved attention from her father, her lovers, her band members, her fans: the world! Her whole life is dominated by the absence of a mother and she took that obsession to the extreme which culminated in her thirst for the attention she feels she missed growing up in a big family.

        I agree with Kiddo. Madonna’s Blond Ambition tour used dance, theatre, music and fashion which was never done before on such a grand scale. She started trends and never followed them.

    Anna doesn’t need Madonna anymore, she has a new bestie in Kim.

    I got one word.


    • GeeMoney says:

      LOL. Not to mention, she’s a 55 year old narcissist. Yeesh.

      Her and Demi Moore need to just realize that they aren’t the spring chickens that they used to be, grow up and call it a day.

    • D'Oh! says:

      Not just any narcissist – a pathological narcissist. Pathological narcissists do not age well, especially those who have attained and fed off of the kind of attention Madonna has throughout her career. She’ll just get more & more desperate with her antics if she doesn’t get the attention she seeks.

  9. Barrett says:

    Madonna boring, predictable, sad.

  10. Lilacflowers says:

    She now says she didn’t attend because she was recording.

  11. poppy says:

    idk why but doubtful it was the cheeks -her butt cheeks. or her other cheeks.

  12. daisyfly says:

    You can be punk at fifty without going full Madonna and honestly, at this point, Betty White is more street than her.

  13. Len says:

    All she has is her ‘shock-factor’. She’s not exceptionally talented where her voice or songwriting skills is concerned. Yes, she used to be a hitmaker, but her songs don’t score anymore. All she has left is this.

  14. Here or there says:

    Put it AWAY luv….

  15. Jaded says:

    She reminds me of a pissy little kid who doesn’t get invited to the next-door neighbour’s kid’s birthday party so she throws dog turds over the fence at them in retaliation.

    Grow up you pathetic twat.

  16. goddesslove says:

    Madonna looks awesome and so does Demi! I keep forgetting this is the old bitter lady thread. Don’t hate! Congratulate! Society says women have to give it up. Thank God they are not listening!

    • Jaded says:

      No, it’s not the old bitter lady thread, it’s the “we’re sick of you shoving your tits in our face Madonna” thread. Or perhaps the “dislike of desperate has-beens who rely on tawdry shock tactics to get attention” thread.

    • FingerBinger says:

      @goddesslove Totally agree with you. It’s disheartening to see other women making ageist comments about other women. In every Madonna thread there’s at least one “granny” or “old hag” reference. They’re pretty predictable on here.

      • Jaded says:

        The comments aren’t ageist – they’re a reaction to her overweening narcissism and exhibitionist nonsense. Her behaviour is nothing more than a tawdry attempt to gain attention by any means possible. She’s ridden the minimal talent wave for too long and now has to resort to silly stunts to keep relevant.

      • FingerBinger says:

        Is Madonna too old for some of these antics? Yes. Then say that. I’m fine with that, but every other comment is “she’s old.” For many of the people that comment on this site, it seems like anyone over 40 is old.

    • wolfpup says:

      Madonna is hot! But so are bunches of women. When I saw her nip on Instagram, I just felt tired. We all have nips and they are basically the same. Hohum. It is kind of disturbing to me that I am not seeing a woman who is embracing the emergence of wisdom, strength and elegance of age. She is brilliant, and perfectly capable of a new definition of age other than competing with the teeny-bopper. It AGES her in the WRONG way!

      • Jaded says:

        Well stated wolfpup – she’s too narcissistic to embrace age with wisdom and respect. She continues to think that offending and shocking are the only ways to maintain relevance. We don’t denigrate age on this blog, we embrace it – look at some of the adoring comments about Dame Judi Dench, Helen Mirren, Meryl Streep, Susan Sarandon, etc. etc. We think they rock! It’s women like Madonna who have embraced nothing more than vast amounts of plastic surgery, excessive working out and dressing like a pop tart to stay youthful instead of welcoming “the elegance of age”. She’ll stoop to anything to stay in the spotlight.

    • Tessy says:

      There are lots of sexy older women but Madonna isn’t one of them. Shoving her beav, rack and stupid grills into everybody’s face doesn’t make her more youthful it just reeks of desperation.

      And what’s with her hand on the bottom photo, it looks like a lobster claw. Now I have this vision of her turning into a reptile like in “V”.

  17. Dawn says:

    I don’t think Anna would dare try to censor Madonna because only god and Madonna know what she would do to retaliate. Besides Anna Wintour is no longer all that tasteful either. She hangs on KanYe West and his reality ho after all. I just don’t get the Anna love for KanYe who can barely speak without adding a muther-f****r in every other sentence. Such talent.

  18. Pizza Pete says:

    Madonna is so lame. She’s so desperate to remain relevant but her stupid antics are so high school that she just comes off like a old hag with a stale bag of gimmicks. There are women in the limelight who are older yet way more cool and relevant than Madonna.

  19. mar says:

    I lover her, I don’t care what dumb things she posts. She is a living legend.
