Watch Boy Scout Madonna Introduce Anderson Cooper: VIDEO

MadgeGLAAD

Now that we've had time to savor Anderson Cooper's speech from last night's GLAAD Media Awards, here is video of Madonna introducing him. Dressed as a Boy Scout, the pop singer dropped not rhymes or tracks but admonishment and shame for those pockets of the world where homophobia still rules the day, places like St. Petersburg, Russia, where the singer defied laws against "homosexual propaganda" by celebrating gay love during a recent concert.

Of course no one can do Madonna's words justice quite like the Material Girl herself, so AFTER THE JUMP, Madonna's complete 12-minute introduction of Cooper at the GLAAD Media Awards.

  1. That's a Cub Scout uniform. Boy Scout uniforms are tan/khaki shirt, green pants.

  2. Painful to watch.

  3. Come on, Madonna, don't be so naive. Putin and the likes of him are not interested in understanding Pussy Riot or hearing what the young gays in Russia want for their future. They are interested in power, and feeding the hate of the masses towards minorities is the easiest way of obtaining and preserving it.

  5. With the throwback (1986?) hair and makeup and writing of her own copy via a rough spunky cuss-filled delivery, it seems like Madonna is finally becoming...Madonna.
    This is the girl who sang Lucky Star and wore the cheap torn lace and rubber bracelets, right? The slutty brash dance club scenester from Michigan who hit NY and happened to make it really really big. I hope she stays with this version of her. It not only suits her, it seems like it is her (less pretense, brattiness, accent, faux authority, well, maybe a little of that, lol).

    And as for the substance, first, this should've been more about AC, but he'll get this joke, right? And, start a revolution? Honey, you've been sort of helping us fight the war that started (publicly) in 1969 in the West Village for quite a while. Thanks. Nice to see you're still here, and that that person seems more like you than your other personas. Stick with it, girl. And please put out another album on par with Ray of Light before you pull a Garland or Garbo on us.

    I think Madonna has already missed her window for pulling a Garland or Garbo.

    The Garb-land reference isn't literal, but meant more in the sense of a grand exit, and I do think that the gladiator/chariot/superbowl/cheerleader Madonna is capable of a grand exit. ;-)

  9. Her speech had a great message - people should actually listen to it.

  10. Madonna can blow smoke up my ass anytime. Now where is her Revolution? We really need a revolution where people do things to get LGBT freedoms and equality not just talk about it or "blow smoke up one's ass". We need more action, where are our leaders like Malcolm X and Martin King?

  11. great comment @conniefrancisscottkey
    i had similar sentiment watching this video, you nailed it.

    Thanks! I remember dancing to Lucky Star as a young teen seeing an interview or blurb with her in it at the time. She's come full circle, the material gal. If I get nostalgic, it's kind of sweet (and very good marketing, lol).

  14. How much money was donated from her Tour to the HRC or any other LGBT organization? NONE- She is full of it. Remember Prop 8? She said nothing! She didn't care. I am not buying it! Let's start a Revolution with her name on it, but without any of her money! Yes, nobody can write her script ...because she think she is better than all of us. Zzzzzzzz....too little too late Madonna!

  15. she is the best, and she can pick a good looking man

  16. She upstaged Gaga's gold wheelchair. How do you bring the world together if you can't even get along with your gay brother?

  17. "Painful to watch."

    The exact reason why I am not watching!

    But, why is she wearing the scout unifrom? Is that a Girl Scout uniform? Otherwise, is she sending a hidden message of the fence-sitting?

    Posted by: iban4yesu | Mar 17, 2013 2:23:02 PM


  18. Interesting comments. I also feel like she's come full circle since her early days, but MUCH more articulate and poised at the podium. Although not perfect, her delivery was very entertaining and has the right message. Hopefully, this video will be watched by gazillions throughout the world and taken to heart.

    I am wondering, though, why the video cut off before her actual handing out the award? What the whaaa???

  19. She looks a great deal like Bette Davis as she became old. Lots of pancake makeup and a youthful hairstyle that is somewhat unflattering, like a circus mirror. Strange.

    Still happy to have her voice. She's a force and people do listen to her.

  20. I don't really care for Madonna, consider myself more of a Lauper/GaGa fan, but props to Madonna for showing up in a boy scout uniform. That is hilarious.

  21. Watch the video, people.

  22. Madonna is a hero. Those who write such rank and thoughtless comments on websites like this one with no sense of historical reference or education are in dire need of reconsidering their stance. It is so pointless to put down the actions, appearance and impact of those who actually move forward with pride, poise and self-confidence. Learn from her. Don't denigrate. It isn't becoming at all.

  23. I've never been a huge Madonna fan but I do give her a big "right on" for her speech here.

    Posted by: greenfuzz | Mar 17, 2013 3:40:47 PM


  24. She's no Gaga or Cyndi Lauper-she hasn't really done much except offer glib platitudes and usually condescending rhetoric from concert stages. "Cry rivers of tears over bullying" Right-except when she does it herself. This just seems like an "I'd better do something moment" because others are doing it.

  25. Uh YEA...I could not bare to click the "play" button either guys. Madonna is starting to look a little like "she only comes out at night to feed". Happy St Patrick's Day !
