Madonna sits down with Harper’s Bazaar magazine and you wouldn’t describe a rich famous white woman as oppressed right? But, according to Madonna that exactly was the case, in this month’s issue of the magazine, Madonna talks about her out-of-the-ordinary lifestyle, touring the globe and dating much-younger men.
‘I’ve always felt oppressed,’ she told the magazine. ‘I know a lot of people would go, “Oh, that’s ridiculous for you to say that. You’re a successful white, wealthy pop star,” but I’ve had the s*** kicked out of me for my entire career, and a large part of that is because I’m female and also because I refuse to live a conventional life.
‘I’ve created a very unconventional family. I have lovers who are three decades younger than me. This makes people very uncomfortable. I feel like everything I do makes people feel really uncomfortable,’ she said.
Most recently, those ‘lovers’ included 25-year-old model Aboubakar Soumahoro. In 2014, she dated now-29-year-old back-up dancer Timor Steffens, and she famously dated Brazilian model Jesus Luz, who was 29 years her junior, from 2008 to 2010.
Her most recent ex-husband, Guy Richie, is nine years younger than she is.
This is a PRIME example of white people’s pathology. She “always FELT oppressed” versus the reality of actually BEING oppressed. The white tears train is going full steam ahead this week ain’t it?
