Like a prayer of a horny thirteen year old boy going through the most insane amounts of puberty… a seventeen year old had her breast exposed at a concert. Unfortunately for boys looking for boobs, said boob was exposed at a Madonna concert. So any young boy there I’m sure was anything but enticed by it.
It’s true though. While interacting with a fan that she brought on stage from the crowd Madonna jokingly attempted to pull at her shirt and ended up pulling the whole thing down, revealing the underage girl to the world. “She’s the kind of girl you just want to slap…on the a**” Madonna joked as she tugged on the girl’s shirt, “And pull.. Oh, sh*t! I’m sorry. Sexual harassment. You can do the same to me,” as her breast were exposed to the audience. It was a stunt that was entirely accidental. But people still went after the pop sensation for “humiliating” and “demoralizing” the young lady.
But while these people defending this girl were trying to do her a service they ended up revealing an ugly side of human nature that is simply innate in our culture. And it took the underage girl herself to impart some wisdom beyond her years and beyond the comprehension of many of those who were outraged by the accident.
“Only I get to decide if I’m humiliated or not… Why would people assume I am humiliated by my own breast, nipple or body? I didn’t realize my boob was such a big deal — it was nothing to me.”
If ever there was a time for a non-sarcastic-slow-clap, it is after this comment right here. That’s a brilliant thing to say. Why should she be ashamed of her body? It’s her own body! Why did people assume that she would be so crushed by this incident? It’s one thing to have your privacy violated by a stalker like Erin Andrews. But Madonna is an idol to this girl and billions like her. Partly for being such an iconic sex symbol and being an “Unapologetic B*tch” about her using sexuality. No one gets to decide how a woman feels about her body, whether it is shame, pride, or touched for the very first time. And good for her for having the confidence more women need, and the wisdom that we all needed to hear.
