Over the years, Madonna‘s racy antics have been rendered even more so due to her unapologetic stance. However, it appears the Pop princess isn’t afraid of saying “sorry” when the occasion calls for it.
After causing furore last night following an Instagram picture which saw her use the “N-Word”, the singer has released a statement denouncing her actions.Array
Madonna’s apology after the jump…
“I am sorry if I offended anyone with my use of the N-word on Instagram.
There’s no way to defend the use of the word. It was all about intention…It was used as a term of endearment toward my son who is white. I appreciate that it’s a provocative word and I apologize if it gave people the wrong impression. Forgive me.”
While we wildly doubt Madge is racist, one thing is certain — she is 100% out of touch. Granted the embarrassing yoga-moves she calls choreography confirmed this long-ago, her actions last night cemented it.
What else – beyond an overt desire to fit in with the “cool kids” – would possess a 55-year-old caucasian woman to use a word so soaked in a history of hate? Worse still, during a week that has seen such history spotlighted by the success narrative of ’12 Years A Slave’. There’s just no excuse.
Beyond being woefully ill-advised, it just confirms that – like her latest music – her Madgesty may well be “past it”.
