Madonna “living in a state of terror” over album leak


Sometimes you just can’t with Madonna, right? Like, total legend, will be bumpin’ The Immaculate Collection until the day I die, etc, but like… really? Some of the shit that comes out of her mouth is so surprisingly ignorant – especially coming from someone who’s made it a point to be so socially conscious in every area throughout her career (and yes, purposely provocative, as well). That’s why people went nutterbees when she started comparing having her album leaked to being raped and calling the hackers terrorists and shit – there is not really comparing an artist having your album ending up online before its release date to, you know, actual rape and acts of terror.

She tried to explain herself a bit better in a new interview with The Guardian this week, but it didn’t go over all that well:

“Obviously there is a person, or a group of people behind this that were essentially terrorising me. I don’t want to sound alarming, but certainly that’s how I felt. It’s one thing if someone comes into your house and steals a painting off your wall: that’s also a violation, but, your work, as an artist, that’s devastating.

“I’m an artistic person, I’m very expressive. I’m sorry if words alarm people, but that’s what it felt like. It was not a consensual agreement. I did not say ‘hey, here’s my music, and it’s finished.’ It was theft.”

Yes, it was theft. That’s all it was. Not rape, not terrorist activity, just theft. And that’s serious in and of itself, but let’s not get shit confused.

Madge also has some thoughts on the Illuminati – to the point that she actually has a track called ‘Illuminati’, all about it. Let us be enlightened by Madonna’s high spiritual lessons:

“There’s a lot of talk in pop music right now about people saying, ‘Oh, this person’s a member of the Illuminati,’ or they’re Illuminati, or you’re Illuminati, and people’s idea that there’s a group of entertainers or very wealthy people, they’re referred to as the Illuminati, and they work behind the scenes and they control things and they’re very powerful, and there’s possibly a reference to something dark, or black magic, or something like that. And I have to say I laugh at all of those things.

“I think there are some people who don’t mind being referred to as that, but I know who the real Illuminati are, and where that word came from. The root of the word is “illuminate”, and that means “The enlightened ones”, and it came from the Age of Enlightenment, when a lot of arts and creativity flourished, from Shakespeare to Isaac Newton, to Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo: the philosophers, artists, scientists were all engaged in a kind of high level of consciousness through their work, and they were enlightening and inspiring people around the world. And those are the true Illuminati. So the purpose for writing that song was really in a way, ‘So, if you think I’m the Illuminati, then thank you very much, a compliment, because I would like very much to be part of that group, the real Illuminati, and this is what it’s not’”.

LOL, okay, girl. I’m just going to let you rock with that one because there’s no talking logic with someone who feels the need to turn crazy people conspiracy theories on the internet into real life drama is beyond help. By the way, the album – from what I’ve listened to so far, is embarrassing as hell. Please have a listen to ‘Bitch, I’m Madonna’ (yes, real song title) and try to tell me I’m wrong.

  • I’m so over Madonna it’s not even funny. Sure did love her music back in the day but she’s so far up her own ass I just can’t with her. Would love to see somebody drop her Blonde Ambition ass down in the middle of Iraq or Syria and then hear her thoughts on terrorism.

  • Madonna is correct in her definition of Illuminati. The word is thousands of years old. It’s irrelevant in today’s world. The swastika is an ancient symbol too. It’s thousands of years old too. But using the ancient origins of the swastika to create acceptance of the Nazi swastika (which they stole from the Tibetans) is just twisted.

    Since Madonna is obviously in on today’s Illuminati – this is nothing more than an attempt to whitewash the word – a failed attempt. She is so out of touch. Her tweets and selfies illustrate this perfectly.

  • I’m betting she leaked it herself because no one would have known or cared about it otherwise. Her pop career ended at least a decade ago but she is too stubborn or fame hungry to go away like the other washed up pop stars do.

  • She is so not popular any more but she has ten lifetimes of wealth salted away and doesn’t want to lose her fortune.. to hide her loot and stay relevant with the other false and cunning greedy richo’s as well as ardent fans and haters requires misleading accusations, double-agent-dealing agenda and subtle drama.. Elitist hide their pals true evil works too.. LOOK Squirrel!!!!!!!!
