Madonna feels ‘ashamed to be an American’ following Trump’s election victory


Madonna did a big fundraiser for her (massively shady) charity, Raising Malawi, in Miami on Friday. The idea was to host a fundraiser to coincide with all of the rich celebrities in town for Art Basel Miami. And it worked, because she got a lot of celebrities to show up, donate money, perform and bid on auction items. People in attendance included: Sean Penn, Leonardo DiCaprio, Alex Rodriguez, Ariana Grande, Dave Chappelle, David Blaine, Jeremy Scott, James Corden, Rosario Dawson, Courtney Love and more. Madonna performed music, and she also said words about Donald Trump.

During the auction and concert, Madonna made a number of provocative comments. The staunch Hillary Clinton supporter, who had promised to perform sexual favors for those who voted for the Democratic presidential candidate, revealed she’d “slept in Donald Trump’s bed.”

“Now don’t go jumping to conclusions because he wasn’t in that bed. He wasn’t anywhere near that bed. He wasn’t even in the room. I was just doing a photo shoot in Palm Beach for the Versace campaign in his house,” she said, before criticizing the president-elect’s sheets. “I just want to mention that his sheets were not 100 percent Egyptian cotton. Yes. Cheap slumlord. Here’s what I’m wondering. Do you think he’s going to have nice sheets in White House? Here’s one thing I’m sure of. They won’t be Egyptian cotton because we all know how he feels about Muslims, don’t we?”

Some audience members gasped at the last remark, but the Queen of Pop wasn’t done. She performed a slowed-down version of Britney Spears’ “Toxic” and sang, “You know that you’re toxic,” as images of Trump appeared on a large screen behind her.

She also spoke passionately about the plight of Native Americans and asked why their land was being destroyed.

“It just really makes me feel ashamed, ashamed to be an American, ashamed to be a human being really,” she said before launching into “American Life.”

While I’ve given a pass to many celebrities for their vocal disappointment in the wake of Trump’s victory or Trump’s America in general, this one just feels… stupid? I don’t know the right word for it, honestly. Like, I totally get what she’s saying, but I also think that Madonna standing up in front of rich people at a charity event (for her own shady f—king charity) and saying she’s ashamed to be an American doesn’t do anyone any good.

As for the other gossip from the event… she did raise millions of dollars, and she successfully auctioned off several of her most prized personal possessions, like some pieces from her art collection, and some Herb Ritts photos taken of herself and Sean Penn on their wedding day. Sean Penn bid on several items, and he took the stage with Madonna at one point, doing a bit where he handcuffed himself to her. At one point, Madonna offered to remarry Sean if he donated $150,000. Then she told him, “I’m still in love with you.” Yeah, girl. We know. We know because you have no chill.

    This hussy had a fake British accent long before Dump. She reinvented herself a million times. I’m just going out on a limb here and guessing that she has confused pride and ego a long time ago.

  2. AnkitaH says:

    What do these ladies see in Ham-face that they fall head over heels for him….?! Madonna… Scarlet.. Charlize…

    He’s so …. UGH 😐

  3. Kaye says:

    She might want to remember that the Dixie Chicks had a huge problem after a similar comment. (And Natalie Maines is still my hero for that.)

  4. boredblond says:

    If you didn’t vote for him, why be ashamed? The majority of us didn’t.

  5. paolanqar says:

    Did she go to the same ‘gym’ as Khloè?
    That ass is dreadful.

    • Rascalito says:

      Lol it was just padding she was wearing as a joke. I saw a pic of the padding after it came off.

  6. Jaana says:

    Madonna seems to have gotten ass implants. This woman is insane.

  7. fluffyrabbit says:

    I definitely think we should be talking about the gigantic Brazilian butt lift she recently had. I want to know where on her body they were able to harvest the fat from. She’s always had a very very low body fat ratio. Can you use foreign fat and is that safe? So many questions.

    • Hannah says:

      Don’t offend Brazilian butts, please.

    • trollontheloose says:

      i think it’s padded. No Brazilian butt lift

    • Artemis says:

      I don’t think she enhanced her butt simply because a side angle shows it’s not very lifted/high. It’s actually quite saggy which is normal considering her age. If Madonna would go for fat transfers or implants; it wouldn’t make sense not to ensure her butt is perky as well.

      Madonna has noticeably gained weight in her midsection and legs and lost some of her muscle tone but she’s still petite and muscular nonetheless. There’s only so much you can workout to go against the effect of aging. No doubt she’s still in better shape than most people but she has been going out to party until the morning and eating at restaurants or with friends so methinks she is not as strict as she used to be which results in the body she has now.

      What I find really horrifying that as a singer/performer, she butchered her true important instrument: her mouth. Her face has been stretched and toxed so much, it’s too tight now for her to have a normal speech. I always think she has grills in her mouth but nope, this is how she speaks now, with a tiny slur. Like she’s tipsy. This is giving me flashback to 2008 when she had her first big facelift for the 4 Minutes video and oh wee, you could tell she was going for the OTT plastic surgery look.

      The problem is, Madonna’s strengths lies in her energetic dance performances but her last tour wasn’t as put together and dance-y as the previous ones. So her energy will be dwindling and her voice which was mediocre at best is going weaker too because of age. No way would fans pay tickets to see a off-tune demure ballad-singing Madonna for 90 minutes. If she would’ve worked on her voice and range when going into old age; that would have been a great career shift, she has amazing ballads that stand the test of time. Now she’s becoming Baby Jane.

    She is no Bill Maher. He actually gives DT the shizz on his show–relentless and informative. Go away Madonna…bleh

  9. Bonbon says:

    Would she just please quit trying so hard to be relevant? The 80s are over, you had s tremendous run, but show some class and dignity as a way to reinvent yourself. Because the last decade or so hasn’t worked for you.

  10. khymera says:

    What nothing about her fake ass. It was horrifying

  11. Allie B. says:

    This is what it took to feel ashamed? THIS? Oh the privilege.

  12. trollontheloose says:

    I loathe when a American says they are ashamed to be American: I worked and paid my dues to get my US Citizenship. it was hardship and not easy even though I have a great well paid job. The US and The Citizenship didn’t necessarily open me more doors but it helped in so many ways to have more freedom of speech (though I am from France) and there are numerous ways to make a living, from a big city to another, travel left and right, marvel at so many diversities, more routes to create, be imaginative etc.. I hate with a passion Trump but I would like to tell those who say they are ashamed : don’t be. Over there in Europe the semantic of the politricks is no better than the US. Austria wised up and fortunately didn’t vote for a Nazi guy because they feared a US repeat. We will see with Italy, France in the coming months.. But you know: I swore after acing all the US History from A to Z.. every now and then countries go thru great turmoils. It’s unfortunate that those of us want a better life for everyone, peace, compassion and more empathy. It’s not utopia it’s the basic of life in respect but we just have to be more activists, more head on, more in actions rather than just be angry at whatever comes our way. i used to lament about climate change but for the past 3 years I am so into it that this year alone I got to be in different venues the last one being in EarttoMarrakesh 2016 and last year in Standing Rock.. let’s not be downcast and let’s roll our sleeves. that’s all. no need to be ashamed of anything.

    • tmot says:

      I love this. I’m just crushed because I have been actively working for a better life for everyone ever since 1982 (old now, young then) and it just feels like it could all be lost. And I do think it makes us look bad to the other countries. I’m not ashamed of myself but I am heartbroken that this happened. And I do not want to be associated with the people who voted for this or the people who support such terrible policies and want to take us back to the ’50s. We all fought so hard and they want to destroy all of our work, all of our accomplishments and make us start over and fight for it again. I’m having a hard time finding the strength for that.

  13. Josefina says:

    Madonna should’ve gone away after Confessions on a Dance Floor. She’d be remembered as a controversial and questionable but undeniably legendary music icon. Her antics as of late have more or less nullified her 3 decades of career before that. She’s turned into such a tacky, messy and obnoxious attention seeker.

  14. Lalu says:

    So many things she could be ashamed for and she chooses this. Will she be moving to England again and doing the British accent?
    I loved this woman when I was a kid. I wanted to be her. By the time I was 18, I had outgrown her… I am 39 now… And she is still the person that I realized she was 20 years ago. Even with all the outward reinvention… She never evolved inside. She hates Donald Trump and loves Sean Penn. Seems about right.

  15. Donna says:

    She’s certainly old enough to know that one doesn’t always get what one wants in life. She’s so desperate to seem relevant and remain in the public eye. Enough, Madge.

  16. Nancy says:

    She’s really working the Whatever Happened to Baby Jane look.

  17. Ellie66 says:

    She needs to be ashamed of that fake ass. 😬

  18. Ariel says:

    Someone please make grandma put on some pants.

  19. Zwella Ingrid says:

    Please leave the U.S. Madonna. We aren’t worthy of your queenly presence.

  20. Sage says:

    I feel second hand embarrassment for her.

    She is really struggling with aging.

  21. Millie says:

    That handcuff nonsense and the comment that went with it made me very uncomfortable. And yet she still loves him. I really have no words for that.

  22. lia says:

    Madonna is an embarrassment to this country and has been for a long time. I don’t want her representing me. I didn’t vote for Trump, but I respect the others’ right to vote for who they wanted. At least for now, we still have that right.
